Blurb: Kel has seen his share of weird throughout his life, but when London asks him to sub for her and her boyfriend, that tops the list. He isn’t gay. He isn’t bi. He definitely isn’t submissive. And with an underlying case of post-traumatic stress disorder from years in the military, anything BDSM just sounds dangerous.
But he also doesn’t want to see his friends hurt, and he’s positive that will happen if they get together with strangers from the Internet. London plays things too close to the vest for him to get a good enough read on her, but Kel trusts Ty, even if he doesn’t think he’ll enjoy turning over control. It’ll be a one-off, it’ll be a little weird, and they’ll all go back to normal.
He’s not sure what to do when a little weird turns out to be something he wants.
Review: A Little Weird is a little bit believable friends to lovers ménage, that includes two damaged minds, a hot and physically strong redhead, and her Dominant and cool-headed lover. The steady, sexually adventurous couple attempt to bring a friend into their ménage as a sub, knowing he’s going to be a challenge but determined to make it work. All odds aside, the scenes seem successful, and the three build on their trust and attraction. The PTSD situations are palpable, and you can just tell London is barely this side of crazy but in a good way. For those who are more into m/m, be warned that London plays a central role, and is very involved in each sexual encounter. I do enjoy the psychological D/s situations in storytelling, and this story is a good example of that. No bondage unless you can count a blindfold, no whips, paddles or other use of pain; mostly D/s and edging.
