coming off of a bad relationship with a sub that didnít take
the lifestyle seriously Simon was feeling like he would
never find the person to meet his needs, until he met the
new bouncer at the Hammer, an exclusive members-only club.
Jeremy, the big beautiful cowboy with the rock hard body was
not the type one would see as submissive, and Simon could
not believe his luck when he turned out to not only be
submissive but was also interested in him.
has always been comfortable with who he is and what he
wanted out of life. When he met Simon he knew he wanted
more than just one night. Jeremy needed a Dom that wasnít
afraid to push his limits, and with Simon he found just what
he was looking for in a Dom and in a relationship.
when Simon and Jeremy see a happily ever after in their
future they are smacked with misfortune that will take
everything within them to overcome and survive.
Forged, the follow up book in Sean Michaelís
Hammer series carry the same caliber of interesting
characters as the prequel Bent, but I didnít find the
overall story as engrossing as Bent. The relationship
in Bent moved me from the start, but I found it took
a while for me to warm up to Jeremy and Simon as a couple.
They were not the typical D/s couple; at times I wasnít sure
who the dominant one in the relationship was. When the
strength of their relationship and feelings for each other
were tested later in the story I was more drawn to them as a
couple, but then I felt the story rushed to get to a
conclusion. I was also thrown by the introduction of Ben
and the timing in which he appeared; I felt he was an
antagonist that was not needed. Forged was a
decent story but I didnít find it to be as good and as
loving a story as Bent.
