Review: Wow, an early-years story for Marcus and Jim. Let’s see; this is quite a short one and the core theme is quite simple. Pour some chocolate down a sub’s body and have your way with it, no matter how long it takes… Wicked in the fact that the sub must show a great deal of patience and endure the pleasure levels getting higher and higher.
What caught my attention – as I haven’t read the early stories in the Hammer series – is Jim. He looked nothing like the Jim in Hitched for example. Here Jim is so in his shell still. He is actually scared of Tanny and it just about killed me. Hilarious!
However, the dialogues and general chemistry remained the same for me, not so appealing. The whispered “Master” that kept falling out of Jim’s mouth fell flat and had no gravity in the BDSM-side at all for me. I keep expecting something, some intensity out of them, but I don’t seem to get there. I mostly found this read cute when I should have found it erotic, and that is what actually bothers me. As for Bill and Tanny, they were great at playing the soundtrack in this little story.
