“Logan’s Project” by Chris Owen
Logan relishes his role as the boss on
his community restoration project doing rehab work. After
hours Logan runs into Toby or ‘Mr. Big’ as Logan thinks of
him. Lust is on Logan’s mind and the big, ex-military guy
would make a wonderful main course. In fact, Mr. Big would
be an entire meal if he is willing, absolutely delicious, if
Straightforward lust headlines “Logan’s
Project” by talented author Chris Owen. There is no
subterfuge here with Logan stumbling a little at first and
then spelling out what he wants, ‘Mr. Big’ counters and
satisfaction is achieved. “Logan’s Project” is lusty sex,
pure and simple.
“Spike” by Matt Stedman
It is supposed to be the usual Tuesday
night friendly Volleyball Intramural games but the East End
Enforcers and the Judy Garland Memorial are not friendly
rivals. The straight team has a hard time losing regularly
to a bunch of gay guys. Ben Edwards of the Enforcers is
always a jerk and it pisses Carl off that this kind of thing
is still going on today. What is Ben’s problem?
Testosterone runs hot and heavy in
“Spike” with good reason. The idea of straight men being
tougher and stronger doesn’t hold if the gay team always
wins now does it. At the same time secret desires ask the
reader to look deeper into characters in denial. “Spike”
becomes a modern fable for adults only.
“Release” by Mychael Black
Jared fights in a cage against
opponents to release his pent up werewolf energy. After his
latest win Jared cruises the bar for a little sexual release
and spots Geoff, a gorgeous diminutive man. Once cornered,
Geoff turns out to be much more than Jared expected to his
“Release” packs a one,
two punch between the two very dominant men who both seek
the top position. The sexual tension leaps off the pages
and readers will enjoy every minute of the show!
“Lessons in Kneeling” by Anah Crow
Tiras of the royal family of Rhyenth
and his advisor Lian await the morning to sign papers for
the surrender of Stratymos. Some form of physical abasement
is expected of Tiras as well. Proud and defiant Tiras can’t
believe he must bow to another. Somehow Lian must make Tiras
understand his duty to his people and their well being over
his own personal feelings.
“Lessons in Kneeling” is a powerful
study in dignity and class. The beginning is somewhat
difficult to understand with unknown characters, places,
etc. but the heart of “Lessons in Kneeling” is very
meaningful. Moments of tenderness make way for exquisite
sensual play. The start is confusing but the finish is
“No Man’s Servant” by K.C. Warwick
The English Civil War is all around him
but Nicholas ‘Nick’ Makespeace makes his living as a
blacksmith, a furrier who shoes horses for either side. A
loose shoe brings John Wyatt, a Royalist to Nick’s forge.
It doesn’t matter what side a man supports when loneliness
stretches forward if both are interested, right?
No strings sex is the order of the day
in “No Man’s Servant”. Some twists and turns make this good
story even better. Nick is solid and true while John is a
charming scamp who makes “No Man’s Servant” a true delight.
“Rider’s on the Storm” by Eider Grey
For the past year Coyote has been
trying to entice motorcycle leader Poet. So far Poet has
ignored the signals but Coyote isn’t willing to quit trying
just yet. The other four guys don’t have a clue that Coyote
desires Poet but what will it take for the leader to give
him second a chance?
“Rider’s on the Storm” is a fast and
frantic moment in time for a biker crew. The start is
confusing as it took awhile to figure out who these
characters are and what their dialogue means. “Rider’s on
the Storm” is quick and slightly brutal like the biker’s
themselves at times. A different kind of story.
“Drive” by Jamie Booth
Coordinating this robbery requires a
driver and Jase finds his guy at the bar next to the gym.
Sam agrees and because Jase brought him in for the job any
screw ups are on Jase’s head and both will pay for any
mistakes. “Drive” examines how errors are
dealt with sometimes harshly and other times brutally.
While Sam doesn’t mind his punishment, I found it awkward
and unrealistic. It spoiled “Driver” for me.
“In the Hole” by C.B. Potts
Being a gay Corrections Officer is
sometimes difficult for Grant when it comes to his
co-workers and he definitely doesn’t want the inmates to
know or work would be total hell. Grant and his partner
Rusty like to role play at home with their fantasies coming
to life. Of course sometimes it can feel more like real
life instead of pretend. Better not forget the safe word if
things get too intense!
“In the Hole” explores sexual fantasies
taken as far as the players are willing to go and sometimes
that line may become blurred. Whispered desires jokingly
spoken can come back to bite you in the butt or enrich your
sex life. Decide for yourself when you read “In
“Fuck Me…Please” by Martin Delacroix
With no intention of re-enlisting in
the Marines, Forrest finds himself at loose ends in San
Francisco when he meets Tyler at a bar. Tyler is port side
for less than a week and plans to spend his nights
screwing. Tyler seems to think sex is just that but can
Forrest go all the way with another guy?
Fuck Me…Please” explores the line
people choose to step over for sex. There’s no true
coercion between Tyler and Forrest but is patience and
passion a form of coercion in itself?
“The Ghost” by Noel Blue
The police force is stumped and even
their best man, Detective Neill Margrave is literally having
fits because he can’t catch the master thief, nicknamed The
Ghost. No clues, solid evidence or a trace of The Ghost but
a lab tech named Sloane has found a note addressed to Neill
to meet and get his answers. Frustrated and intrigued Neill
wonders if he should meet with this daring thief in order to
A slippery thief versus a professional
cop is featured in this fun, sexy and scintillating story
titled “The Ghost”. Snappy dialogue and a great twist make
“The Ghost” an unforgettable plot and terrific characters.
“Like Clockwork” by Meredith Shrike
Attempting to steal the Giltruby
Arietis of House Xersetus, Captain Gideon P. Hightower is
hanging in special cuffs, caught and snared. A very sexy
guard named Jules Alexander is standing there gloating for
having caught the wily fox. But, is the thief truly caught
or is Jules perhaps crowing a bit too soon?
Witty, sometimes silly fun and great
sexual banter among other things puts “Like Clockwork” at
the head of the pack. Not only is “Like Clockwork”
entertaining to read but the twists and turns in the plot
make this tale even more amusing.
“A Game of Empire” by Autumn Winterwind
Rebel leader Haensl ‘Hans’ Schmidt has
been captured and brought aboard Vice Admiral Friedrich
‘Fritz’ von Bielifeld’s ship. It will take weeks to
transport the prisoner to the Emperor and in that time Fritz
hopes to get Hans to stop the rebellion and accept a
position under Fritz. Long ago they were lovers – will that
hinder Fritz’s plans for Hans or help the situation? In
less than a month an answer must be given.
Old hurts and clever maturity are at
the heart of “A Game of Empire” with two equally intelligent
adversaries and past lovers. A study in trust, respect and
the willingness to commit honorably are at the center of “A
Game of Empire” with a side of BDSM thrown in.
“Crocodile Bird” by G.S. Wiley
Ancient Rome is in its glory while
Egyptian freeman Rahotep enjoys his life and the occasional
company of Centurion Tiberius Cordius of the Sixteenth
Legion. When on leave Cordius spends time with his woman
and children but by and large he stays with Rahotep who
never knows if Cordius will make it home after each
campaign. Rahotep cannot ask for more but wishes he could
“Crocodile Bird” is a
lovely tale of what one wishes for verses what is realistic
to hope for in life. Rahotep is an easy character to
sympathize with. This is a thoroughly enjoyable short and
“Personal Time” by C.A. James
The corner office at work, money in the
bank and all that goes with it but Andrew Lin finds that
when he has unexpected free time he feels somewhat
restless. Visiting his friend Russell ‘Sant’ Santiago
earlier than anticipated that day he meets Sant’s new
personal trainer Akash who sets off signals Andrew wishes to
explore. Maybe it’s time that Andrew has some personal
attention to his body, the sooner the better.
“Personal Time” paces well and builds
itself perfectly to finish with heady, sizzling fireworks.
Career driven and highly motivated, Andrew is an alpha about
to learn a few things once he loosens up and trusts Akash
with his body, both dreamy alpha characters. Hot and
scorching, “Personal Time” ends with a bang!
“Open Up” by Clare London
He noticed the man amongst all the
others waiting in the dental office. The man is big, buff
and when they lock eyes he felt a knowing spark. Forgotten
by days end, he is straightening the room and the man is
suddenly there for him to submit or deny a quick screw. Take
it or leave it, what’s it going to be?
The tale “Open Up” offers two
unidentified men expecting a fast moment together and
getting far more than they bargained for in this twisted
story. A tangle of D/s is captured in “Open Up”. Fascinating
and convoluted at times but not for everyone I’ll bet.
“Unmasked” by Syd McGinley
It is early days in their relationship
but things are going well for Hunter and Alan. One little
wrinkle though it’s silly really but Alan it seems hates
Halloween and refuses to go to Ray’s annual party which
Hunter looks forward to each year. Hunter eventually
resigns himself to going alone without knowing Alan has
something planned that Hunter will never forget.
A delightfully sexy duo with fun
dialogue makes “Unmasked” sparkle. The opening may be
slightly confusing until you sort out the characters and who
is speaking to who but once “Unmasked” gets rolling, the
ride builds from sexy entertainment to scorching excitement!
