Title : Box of Nails : This Young Stud Word Count :34,900
Genre : Contemporary Gay Romance
Blurb : Jeff has hired on as the manager of the house owners Dev and Barney are trying to create for the servers at the Hammer Club, and dealing with all those twinks is like herding cats. Still, he loves his new job, which is partly due to meeting hot, interesting sub, Paul.
Paul is Devvie’s best friend, a bartender at the Hammer Club, and a sweet little bottom. He believes he breaks Doms, though, so when he falls for Jeff, he figures the best thing he can do is stay away. Jeff won’t let him hide, and soon they’re seeing each other, despite Paul’s worries.
Can Jeff and Paul overcome the past and make a life together?
My Review : Jeff is given the task of coralling the twinks at the ‘box of nails’ house which is supposed to be a safe haven from all Doms. However , Barney came up with the bright idea of hiring a Dom so the twinks are not running roughshod all over Devvie. As soon as Jeff sees Paulie the attraction is instantaneous. Paulie is a shy sweet twink that has a low self esteem. He believes that he is broken and that every Dom who he’s been with is tainted by him. From the moment he meets Jeff he’ s been intrigued. He tries to make a good impression, but he always seem to end up in the rose bushes or hurt in some undignified way.
This was such a sweet, sensual read. Jeff explores the dominant side of their relationship and sees how far he can push Paulie. Jeff knows that he has found the one after giving Paulie his first spanking.Paulie responds beautifully to his Dom and falls a little bit deeper as his ass gets redder and more tingly. Jeff is very patient and that is why even though he is young, he is such a great Dom. When tragedy hits and threatens to overwhelm Paul, Jeff is there to push him into letting out all the pain. Jeff allows him to have a totally cathartic experience. I am getting very curious about the discipline side of submission, I am very tempted to try. This book gets my ratings of 4 – lose the underwear.
