Aussie hunk Michael Stewart is
receiving great reviews for his performance on the Broadway
stage. Michael has dreams of making it big in the U.S. but
knows that his hunk status would be totally ruined if it got
out that heís gay.
At one of the many parties Michael is
asked to attend so his name and picture gets out he meets
Paula Zimmerman and her lover Victor Daly. Paula is a
comedy club owner and Victor is an entertainment lawyer.
A certain smile and eye contact tell
Michael that Victor is interested in getting together but
Michael canít risk detection and has to be very careful. As
it turns out Victor has his own reasons for discretion.
Both men burn to be together but it seems as though life
conspires to pull them apart. Choices verses desires, which
will win out?
Secret lives and desires are the
driving forces in the sensual tale of Top Dog.
The main characters, Michael and Victor have full,
satisfying careers yet hid their deep needs in the dark and
feared the light of discovery. That fear of discovery
against the sexual pleasure received is the force behind
Top Dog. I thoroughly enjoyed the vast sea of
emotion and the choices made which kept me involved with
both men. Top Dog doesnít end with the
traditional Happily Ever After but the characters are happy
with their decisions. It did seem as though author Shara
Bloodstone left a door open for more from Michael and Victor
in the future.
