An interesting story, with a bit more thought behind it than similar works. Don't be put off by the fact this is Nifty story about a 14 year old boy, Tim, and a 30-something Dom, David. This is nothing like the sissboy series etc, and instead the 14-year old is written like a 25-year old; he's articulate, intelligent, thoughtful, self-aware, and incredibly mature.

The premise is that Tim was abused as a seven-year old and it has affected his life. Tim feels a lack of self-worth, and has not had s

Like others, I found this difficult to rate. It's a BDSM consensual slave story with a 14-year-old main character. He doesn't really act much like a 14-year-old but it is an important point. Because this story, like others by Jack Rowan, seems to be more about making a point than writing sex. And one point is that chronological age or age of consent does not really make a relationship right or wrong. Although this story was told from the perspective of David, this was Tim's story and Tim was the ...more

This one was all weird for me. I've read the sequel months ago and really liked it, but this was neither here nor there. The underage issue and the age difference don't bother me, so it's not that. More the flow of the story and the grown up way Tim was presented in. Sex scenes seemed too much with not enough time in between and the side characters were made somewhat sloppy. Really, the sequel was so much better. As for recommending, I can't really recommend this to anyone and be at peace. I can ...more

I admit I was a bit wary when I saw this was on Nifty. But while it was at times a bit intense (for me at least, and not necessarily always the same kind of intense), there was nothing dirty about the relationship that develops in this story. I really loved both MCs, and quite a few of side characters too. As for the writing, while it certainly was not at the level of published work, there was nothing distracting about it either, and it allowed me to flow with the story well enough.

3.5 stars rounded up to 4 stars. M/M. Another dark, erotic fanfiction story I found on Goodreads. This was really well written, very few errors at all. A big caution for those considering reading this, one of the MC's is a 14-year old boy. I've read the story and I accept that this 14-year old (a survivor of abuse when he was 7 years old) was capable of giving consent, but I know that others would disagree and they should probably skip this one.
This story make such a big impact on me. Wow!!!
Surprise you can find some jewel on Nifty.

This story is not for everyone. Deal with a 14 years old teenager that is a masochist, his 28 years old uncle (not blood related) that is a sadist and how you deal with the need to be hurt and to hurt someone.

Note: The fact that the teen is 14 years is talk about a lot in the story.

The sequel to this story (The Story of Tol) had a much greater emotional impact on me. But I would still recommend this one, too. For one, it's a much tamer introduction to the alternate universe (it's contemporary England, but has a powerful BDSM society among other things) than Tol's story (which is full of non-con and horrific abuse). The writing is good and the dynamic between the MCs unusual: although the sub has a history of abuse, for once it's not the Dom who thinks it a good idea to hea

A very nice, if a bit short, story about how Tim overcomes abuse and learns to love in a sub-dom relationship.

I felt this story had a bit more realism in it, than many other bdsm stories I've read. The way that David plays his dom role, for one, seems to cut a lot closer to what a loving, caring dom is like in real life and less that of a fantasy creation.

I love Tim's character, he is flirty, teasing and yet the perfect sub. He isn't the negative sub either, which you read too many of, but rat

I liked this story. I gave it 4 stars because I gave 5 stars to "The Story of Tol" by the same author and this last story was definitely better. So I could not really give the same number of stars to this one.
This is interesting to see a Dom/sub relationship were the sub is more intelligent than the Dom. Usually, the authors insist on the opposite. The Dom here does not want a sub who is just a carpet to put his feet on nor a couple of holes to put his inside. So, this is a good story, bu

This is a weird one. The ages of the characters (34 and 14!) were actually less of an issue than I thought they would be for me - in fact,I just read one with an 18-year-old which felt a lot more squicky in terms of people being taken advantage of.

I guess what weirds me most about it is it can't decide whether it wants to be wish-fulfillment porn, or a story about issues. So it mingles both, sometimes a bit queasily.

This was just ok for me. Having read The Story Of Tol, I thought I knew what to expect. I enjoyed that story quite a bit and didn't make the same connection to this one. The age difference didn't bother me, neither did the sub being smarter than his master. What bothered me was the manipulation and topping from the bottom the sub did. I found it irritating.

When an author writes about serious issues with such shallowness it turns into quite a bad read.
