Shorty’s Review: ♥♥♥ 3 Hearts
Ian works at a bar his boyfriend, Calvin, owns. But, Calvin isn’t out to anyone, so he keeps Ian a secret until his sister comes to town and finds out. Ian wants more from Calvin but doesn’t know how to let his boyfriend know. After seeing Ezra again, he longs for what the sexy man he had a crush on in high school can give him. Ian is cute and is a submissive. When they finally get together, it’s hot and explosive. Calvin ends up beating Ian up after his sister finds out about them and threatens to tell everyone.
I found this story to be somewhat intriguing. Ezra introduces Ian to BDSM, which he craves more of after experiencing it.
The sex was hot and steamy.
Gigi’s Review: ♥♥♥ 3 Hearts
This was a hot, fun story about the one who got away. Old high school crush returns and dominates all of Ian’s thoughts, and eventually his sexual desires too! Glad Ezra did step in because Ian sure is settling for a jerk with his current closeted boyfriend. Things get heated when the current jerkface boyfriend sees that Ian is considering Ezra’s attentions, his family takes notice of their relationship, and the guy gets violent.
Moral of the story: give that high school crush a second chance, and don’t’ settle for vanilla when what you really need is to get your kink on.
This is a short, fun, and sexy little read. A bit extreme when the first sexually dominant scene involves sounding rods, wow, quite the jump there! But still enjoyable.
