Bobby tells himself the mask he’s been wearing all month is just part of the Halloween theme of Abyss, the alternative lifestyle club he frequents. But it’s not the truth. He’s in lust. He’s in the closet. And, he’s ready to come out. The only problem is, the man he’s interested in is a friend. A straight friend.

Thor knows he’s being watched. What he can’t figure out is

THIS IS A COMBINED REVIEW FOR:
*Masked
*Unmasked
*Revealed
*Thankful
That makes up the Masked series


So a little BDSM never hurt anyone right? I enjoyed the idea behind this little short read. Who cares if it’s all to be taken with a pinch of salt? It’s like snagging a piece of chocolate behind someone’s back. Gives you a secret little smile to yourself.
I enjoyed it for what it was. It’s way too short to start analyzing and pointing to

It would appear that this is a new author for me and although I like her writing style, I am not sure this series is for me... but, I will admit that I am intrigued! ;D

Bobby is in the closet, but ready to come out of it. Wearing a Mask, he attends the Abyss’s Halloween Parties, watching Thor from the sidelines week after week. He’s interested in Thor, but Thor is straight. And, oh, yeah, they are friends.

Thor is intrigued by the man in the mask. He knows he has met him before but can’t place him. Finally he approaches Bobby and Bobby makes his move. Bobby requests a spanking, but only from Thor. But unknown to Bobby is that Thor also prefers men.

The two go off

For those of you that know me... and those that don't this is my little statement about short books.... I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review...oh

Okay, this is short... How short... It came in under

Robert wears a mask to the club's Halloween-themed so he can watch the man he is utterly infatuated with- a man he knows well and knows him. Robert is still very much in the closet and has a randy reputation for all the women he goes out with, but secretly he wants a specific man, Thor. Thor works construction, but is a man who only has one other interest which he indulges in even while he remains relatively unmoved personally. He is a skilled practitioner with floggers, whips, canes and the ...more

If this 'short story' were marketed as the first chapter of a book, I would probably have awarded it (the book) 5 stars given how much I enjoyed this tempting taste. I really dislike authors who don't understand the format of the short story & fail to provide the reader with a resolution. This 'chapter' is nice. The characters, although not explored in enough depth, are pleasant & easy to like. The BDSM hints at something special but there weren't enough words in this 'chapter' to really ...more

This was a fabulously written short story. It started, got right to the point, but with sexiness and just enough detail, and ended with me wanting to run right into the next chapter, which is what this book felt like - the first chapter of a full-length book. I could feel the energy and tension in the room between the characters and was on the edge of my seat waiting for them to get together. Bobby and Thor are fantastic together. I cannot wait to read more of their relationship.

Very short and i understand that these two characters are from a previous book but you don't need to read that first...i won't as it's m/f...You only get a spanking in this but a good short read x

I usually am not big on BDSM story, but this one is sweet. This is only part 1 of the trilogy, so any review perhaps wouldn't be complete if it's done independently since each is a short story.

Neither Bobby and Thor is known as being gay, although Thor is out bi. So, Bobby (a.k.a. Robert) has to wear mask when he visit the club where Thor works. Would Thor recognize the masked guy that somehow he's attracted to?

The other books in the series:
- Unmasked
- Revealed

I really love the 2 MC's in this book(and the ones that follow it). This does not end on what you could call a cliffhanger; but neither is the book the complete story of Bobby and Thor's relationship. To complete the relationship(as far as it goes) you need to read: Masked, Unmasked, Revealed, and Thankful in that order.
I love this series and wish there was even more to it, not because it is not clear that the men are in a committed relationship by the end of Thankful but just because I would

I read masked, unmasked and (3rd book) all at one time. I enjoyed the three books. my only complaint is that they really could have been one book. I do not know why there were put out in threes but I know I would not have been happy if I had to have waited for the next book. So as an individual book I would say I would give it a 3 star, but as all three books togethere I would give it 5 stars.

This is the 1st I've read by this author and I thought it was great right up till it ended leaving me wanting more and going crazy wanting to know who is behind the mask & what there connection is? I was looking at her other books wandering if this story fits in somewhere and can't find anything...Does anyone who is familar with this author know if this story goes with another?

I read this short story, that I got for free on Amazon, quickly this morning. My god, it was so sexy !
Though a very short novella, the story was well-built, well-written and the characters well-drawn for such a few pages. It was very steamy though the ending keeps you badly wanting for more.
So... I've just ordered the rest because I couldn't wait (book 2 : unmasked, book 3 : revealed)!

Short, hawt read, with a bit of mystery thrown in. But as hot as it was, the emphasis was more on showing the incredible attraction Thor & Bobby felt for each other, than squeezing in as much sexxoring as possible. Good start to the series.

Only wished it would have been a longer story, I would have really loved to see their relationship grow. I read all 4 in one night.

Surprisingly emotinal and full for such a short story. The MCs were compelling and had mee caring about them. The cover, however, is unfortunate.
