No Angel ( No Shame 5) by Nora Phoenix

Title: No Angel Word Count:167 pgs
Genre: Contemporary Gay Romance

Blurb:Indy and his chosen family are celebrating the holidays…in true No Shame style.

It’s time to say I do, and Indy couldn’t be more excited. Side by side with Noah, Josh, and Connor, he’s proud to take his vows with their friends watching.

But his post-wedding bliss is rudely interrupted when his past once again comes back to haunt him. And not just him, Connor gets some shocking news as well that leaves him reeling.

Before they can all share the best Christmas ever, they’ll need to come together as one family.

No Angel is the fifth book in the No Shame series, a continuing series that needs to be read in order (start with No Filter). You can expect the usual sexy shenanigans, some suspense, and a whole lotta love and emotions as we reconnect with all characters from the previous books.

My Review: The boys are back and even hotter than before. It starts out with Indy and Josh having wedding jitters. They are both about to marry the men of their dreams, Noah and Connor. To the world this looks like a joint wedding of two couples. It really is a melding of 4 souls joining together to form one whole. Connor is no longer jealous of the special relationship that Indy has with Josh. To them, it’s as natural as breathing and they come together seamlessly. Both Connor and Noah are finally understanding that they all need this connection and bond that keeps growing for all of them. Instead of dividing, it has actually brought them closer together, they are now a family. This also includes the trio that they have let into their lives , Charlie, Brad and his ‘daddy’ Miles. Although unconventional, all of these relationships are being fostered in a safe environment that has allowed them to flourish.

News that there is a contract out on Indy’s life once more threatens to shake their foundation. Connor, Noah and Miles who are the ‘man’ of the house decide to hire private security to ensure their ‘boys’ are safe. They all agree that the security needs to be kink friendly so that they won’t need to curtail their lifestyles. They find a Dom named Wander who is very open minded, but it is still an adjustment and causes some embarrassment for some members of the household. This tests the true strength of the triad relationship when it comes to light that Miles is a bit embarrassed of his relationship. Brad is deeply hurt that his ‘daddy’ would deny the special part of their relationship…. his need of his consensual use and debasement. Miles knows he needs to atone for his mistakes so he asks Connor to dole out his punishment. Although unconventional for a Dom to ask another Dom for punishment, this is his way to prove his worthiness to his ‘boy’.

Even more earth-shattering is when Connor’s mom calls him out of the blue. She says her final goodbyes and tells of the end of her affiliation with the mob. Connor takes this as a premonition of bad things to come and he is indeed right. After giving herself over to police custody, she confesses to her crimes of murdering the remaining Fitzpatricks and then some. This is her last act of protecting Connor and proves her unfailing love in her own way. She later commits suicide. This is heart-rending for Connor, but his men are there to pick him up. Connor is shattered and he doesn’t do well with grief. It is Noah who pulls him in the right direction to express his feelings.

Indy comes up with a game where everyone in the house gets their ultimate sexual fantasy. It is through these sexy times where Connor and Noah finally become intimate with each other and boy was it intense. Intense in a good way and cathartic at the same time. It was definitely a balm to soothe Connor’s hurt and put him back together again. Blake and Aaron was also featured and they also get their happy ending. Aaron proposed to his master who accepts. They have a winter wonderland wedding on Christmas eve where Blake gets the chance to officially collar his ‘puppy’ with a diamond encrusted pink collar. This was certainly the best Christmas holidays for all these men who’ve come together and formed this beautiful family. I give this my ratings of 5- bring out the vibrators cause there is lots of hot sex. I absolutely loved the perfect end to a perfect series.

Psycho ( Brawlers 2) by J.M.Dabney

Title: Psycho                               Word Count: 129 pgs

Genre: Biker Gay Romance
Blurb:Welcome to Brawlers Bar…

Life wasn’t easy when you were certifiable, Gerald “Psycho” Clemons lived on the fringes of society. Five years he hadn’t thought twice about riding with a group who saw most laws as flexible. When the leader of the group turned crazier than Psycho, he stepped in and made the man pay. He’d never been rewarded for his temper before, yet that’s what happened when he earned a permanent place and a job as a bouncer. Everyone walked a wide circle around him, and he liked it that way. One look from his cold black eyes and he had people backing up. Then he met a man who had to be crazier than him. 

Decadence Bakery was Ben Morin’s dream come true, and he loved it, but he grew tired of his lonely existence. Six months earlier he’d turned on the open sign and hopefully changed his life for the better. Ben loved his small cottage in the middle of nowhere even with the 3 a.m. rumbling of motorcycles and loud music at the farm next door. Although one thing he didn’t love, was his new hobby of watching one of the terrifying men next door. What could a little harmless peek now and then hurt?

Sweet and older wasn’t his type, but Psycho couldn’t deny the need to possess the beautiful baker. It was stronger than even the insanity he barely kept at bay, could he have a man who looked passed it or would Ben run like all the rest?

My Review: Psycho, his name says it all. Psycho is one of the Brawlers crew who is known to be psychotic and crazy as hell. He has had a rough upbringing and this has defined his life to a tee. Psycho’s life is inundated with violence and tenderness is a very foreign concept. Lately,he finds himself yearning for someone to call his own. He has scrutinized his bosses Scary and Tank’s triad relationship to their husband Elijah. Reason being that Scary and Tank are rough and tumble bikers like himself and Elijah is gentle and sweet. What he really craves is the love and gentleness that he sees flowing through this triad, he wishes that he knew how to make a relationship work like that. 

Psycho is confused about dating and everything that goes into a relationship. When he meets the older sexy baker Ben Morin, he wants to see where it could lead. They have a very awkward first meeting where Psycho takes care of Ben after he has been accidentally knocked down by his employee. Psycho is extremely gentle, taking care of Ben’s bleeding nose without even thinking about it.  However, he spoils this tenderness by demanding that Ben goes home with him. Ben is definitely not used to a persona like Psycho and he is confounded by his request. As tempted as he is by the big sexy biker, he doesn’t do casual hookups. Psycho feels rejected and doesn’t even wait for Ben to explain.

Psycho goes back to Brawlers feeling dejected and sulking. It is Scary who decides to help the confused man and give him a few dating tips. Psycho is still wary, but decides to give it another shot. His chance comes when Landon ,one of the Twirled crew tells Ben about the wedding that his crazy mishmash family is having. Ben decides to make a cake for the triad wedding, leaving Elijah ecstatic. Ben has definitely found new friends with most of the partners of the Twirled and Brawlers crew. Psycho suggests nicely that they chill and watch some movies. Ben is surprisingly comforted by Psycho’s stilted conversational skills.

Their relationship starts off slow when Psycho keeps on second guessing his every move with Ben. Ben sets him at ease by telling him to be himself. He continuously reassures Psycho that he enjoys his company, verbal diarrhea and all. Once Pyscho sees this for the truth, everything takes off at full speed. It soon becomes clear that Psycho likes his sex rough and tumble, just like how he lives his life. This certainly is nothing like the vanilla sex Ben is used to , but he finds it refreshing and sexually liberating. He gets a kick out of being Psycho’s ‘boy’ and loves  it when he is spanked. This certainly leads to some sexy man on man action.

Ben soon realizes what he has set himself up for being in a relationship with Psycho, when Psycho lands himself in jail beside his friend Joker. Ben is just mad that his man is kept for over two days, he is not mad at Psycho for getting caught beating the hell out of the man who put Harper,a transwoman in the hospital.  Ben understands that with Psycho he will have to take the good with the bad. His acceptance and his support of Psycho’s personality goes along way to forging the strong relationship that Pyscho has  dreamed of recently.

Ben is honoured to be a part of Psycho’s rough, crazy biker family. He even goes so far as to befriend Psycho’s ex wife Bernie and her  beautiful wife. Psycho is so much more relaxed and secure in his love for Ben. They are even talking about kids in their future. I really enjoyed this one. I give this my ratings of 4 – lose the underwear.

Men in the Shadows 4: The Porn Star by Rain Carrington

Title : The Porn Star              Word Count : 382 pgs
Genre : Contemporary Gay Romance

Blurb : Sammy is looking for the man who could make him feel the way Neil had, and finding it impossible. A secret admirer starts to leave him roses and notes, stalking him. Sammy is intrigued, but with college, his job at his father’s garage and his new tutoring gig, he doesn’t have a lot of time to guess who it could be. Secretly, though, he hopes that it is Neil, who he couldn’t stop wanting.
He finds out and soon begins to explore his kink, to be watched. A video is uploaded to a website and attracts the attention of a porn producer. IS this Sammy’s big break, or will it end in heartbreak?
The student Sammy starts to tutor is a rich and difficult man named Andrew. Andrew disregards and berates anyone who crosses him, including the new personal assistant his father hired to “babysit” him.
Tom is a former Marine with a secret agenda, keeping him in the job with the privileged man he doesn’t know if he’d rather slap or kiss. Once Andrew’s parents announce their impending divorce, Andrew goes off the rails, only to find Tom there to catch him.
Through the last two years, Malcolm and Kirk have lived and loved, but when Sammy asks Malcolm to keep a secret from his big lover and his biker brothers, including Road Dog, Sammy’s father, Malcolm agrees, only to be found out and losing everyone who mattered the most to him. Can he and Kirk find their way back to one another, possibly with the help of the big Marine they met through Sammy?
Secrets, intrigue, murder and unspeakable acts abound in this final installment of the series. Three couples unite and are put to the test by family, friends and new jobs. Can three men come out stronger or end up another casually of their Men in the Shadows?

My Review : This book really showed how to bring the two halves of our ‘selves’ together and how to reconcile the disparity between the two. First of all, we meet Sammy who is a sweet young man who seems to be lost. Sammy has been hurt by a former lover and has decided to cure his pain by sleeping around. This helps him for a time, but lately he has realized that these encounters are leaving him unfulfilled. When Sammy starts getting notes from a secret admirer, he has to admit that he is somewhat intrigued. He tells his best friend Malcolm who seems to be worried for Sammy. He suggests that it could be the work of Sammy’s former lover Neil. Sammy agrees with Mal, but even though he still feels hurt over Neil’s betrayal, deep down he hopes the notes are from him. Sammy goes through his everday life as usual, going to college, working at his father’s garage and doing some tutoring to a spoiled brat named Andrew.
Things come to a head when Neil reveals himself as Sammy’s secret admirer. Sammy’s immediate reaction is to walk away from Neil as he knows no good can come from it. Neil persuades him and begs him for a chance to apologize. Neil is sorry for the way he betrayed Sammy. He knows that he messed up before and got Sammy’s friend Malcolm hurt, but he was also the one who helped find Malcolm when he was kidnapped. Sammy wants to forgive Neil and he realizes that he is still very much in love with him. He is in a quandary, because he knows that his family would definitely not appreciate him getting back together with Neil. Sammy’s father Road Dog, belongs to a biker gang, and he has forbidden his son to ever speak to Neil again after all the problems he caused the family .
Against his better judgement, Sammy decides to give Neil another chance and take things slowly . Neil is ecstatic that he gets to be with his sweet Sammy again. They agree to keep their relationship a secret for the time being. Things are going great with them and within no time they have totally reconnected. Neil is the only man that has been able to bring out Sammy’s kinky side, he is a bit of an exhibitionist. Neil caters to Sammy’s exhibitionism by filming their passionate lovemaking and uploading it to a porn site with Sammy’s approval. Sammy is beyond excited to see the thousands of views that their video has gotten. This sparks a flame within Sammy which can no longer be tamed.
In the meantime, another relationship is being formed between Sammy’s spoiled brat student Andrew and his live in bodyguard Tom. Andrew comes from a family of wealth and he is rude and disrespectful to everyone. He is over priveledged and his father has paid his way through life. He is failing his classes and Sammy realises that the true problem lays in the fact that he can’t read. Andrew goes through life ,covering his failings by being rude and not letting anyone get close to him. He pushes everyone to their breaking point, so that they will eventually leave him. This did not work with Tom, who he thoroughly pissed off with his attitude. Tom is a former marine and a Dom and he is absolutely fed up with Andrew’s disrespect. He is outraged and resorts to his natural inclination to discipline. It isn’t until he starts spanking Andrew and hears him screaming and sees the tears roll down his face , that he realize he does not have the right to discipline him. He starts to apologize, but he sees something in Andrew’s eyes and demeanor that appeals to him. Andrew thrives on punishment and their is a sparkle in his eyes that was never there before. Tom decides to hone Andrew’s submissive nature and turn him into the perfect slave . Tom wants to be his master so bad and soon sees the reality coming through.

It was truly an awakening for both of them to see the rich snobbish attitude taken over by the true mindset of what it means to be a perfect slave to his master. Andrew knows that his true purpose in life is to service Tom in all aspects of his life. Tom initiates Andrew to the life of a slave surrounded by like minded friends. Andrew endures a lot of pain with all the devices used by master Tom and his mentor, but he relishes it and receives pleasure as well. Andrew’s lessons in submission is definitely not for the feint of heart. Tom is a hardcore Dom and there is a lot of pain play , hot wax play amongst other things that I couldn’t fathom. However , the one thing that resonates with me is the open love that these two men experienced once both of their dreams are fulfilled.
Sammy’s feelings for Neil are becoming overpowering and he feels he can no longer hide his relationship from his family. To say his father was upset is a true understatement. Road Dog walks away without speaking to his son. His confession also opens a can of worms when it is revealed that Malcolm kept his secrets. Malcolm’s husband Kirk who is a member of the same biker gang as Road Dog believes that keeping secrets from his biker brothers is a true breach of trust. This causes a rift in their marriage and Malcolm walks out on Kirk. I was really sad to see this as they are my favorite characters.
They have been through a lot and they are really a solid couple.
They all have to pull together when trouble comes in the form of Andrew’s rich daddy. He is the head of a pharmaceutical company that developed a drug that can ‘cure the gay away’. Finding out that his son is gay would definitely cast a shadow on his wonder drug causing him to lose money, so he decides to have his son killed. This is where Malcolm comes up with the brilliant idea that the members of the biker gang could protect Andrew for a fee. It was very interesting to see the different kinds of friendships that were formed amongst these three couples. They all faced the dangerous ordeals with the support of their friends. They endured and came out victorious as three devoted couples. Tom was able to find his perfect slave in Andrew. Neil was able to cater to Sammy’s kinky side and this allowed Sammy to appreciate the man he knows and loves. Kirk was able to reaffirm the strength of the bond that he has with Malcolm.I give this my ratings of 4 – lose the underwear.

Rent Me 2: Own Me by Brina Brady

Title : Own Me                Word Count : 344 pgs
Genre : Contemporary Gay Romance

Blurb : Russian mobster Dmitri Dubrovsky married ex-rent boy Bren. Jealousy is still a big issue for both of them. They fear that the other will find someone better and leave. Dmitri’s ex-boyfriend Viktor is still in love with him and hates Bren. Viktor sets out to cause problems and make Dmitri and Bren question their love and commitment to each other. Bren tries to be the best sub, but feels Dmitri doesn’t take him seriously. Some BDSM elements.

Dmitri gets even more possessive when Bren works with his favorite ex-client from Forbidden Desires Escort Agency. To complicate matters, Russian mobsters threaten the Dubrovsky family.
New Cover on this book.

My Review : It would seem that Brennen and Dmitri still have a lot of kinks to iron out , even though they are newly married. Their kink level is extremely high and Brennen spends most of his time enduring some form of corporal punishment or another. Dmitri is even more controlling and possessive than ever. When he finds out that Bren will be associating with his former favorite client from his rentboy days, Dmitri is uncontrollably jealous. He places Bren in a cock cage and a locked anal plug.
Bren becomes infuriated when he thinks that Dmitri might me cheating on him with his ex boyfriend Viktor. They have a long standing rivalry over the sexy Dmitri. Brennen goes after Viktor with guns blazing, literally. Bren goes all crazy on Viktor, and it takes the two brothers Mischa and Dmitri to calm Bren down. Mischa is as confused as ever about Dmitri and Bren’s relationship, he doesn’t understand the BDSM element to their love and he doesn’t condone it especially when Bren is being punished.
Bren’s past comes raring it’s ugly head in the form of his former abuser who happens to be Dmitri’s older brother Adrik. All their lives seem to be entangled and Dmitri is forced to have a relationship with Adrik as danger threatens to strike close to home. Bren is also forced to reconnect with Adrik in order to help out a newfound friend.
The master / slave dynamic becomes more pronounced in Dmitri and Bren’s relationship . It produced some very intense, very hot sexual situations. Also, it brought them closer in a way that nothing else did. It is clear that Bren not only needs discipline, he thrives on it and it solidifies their union causing bonds that are unbreakable. However, Bren’s quicksilver temper and Dmitri’s overbearing possessiveness soon leads them into another fight.

There is absolutely no doubt about it that Dmitri and Bren are oh so hot together, but it gets a bit exhausting watching them fight and make up so many times. Their makeup is almost instantaneous when Bren gets in trouble and has to ask Dmitri to bail him out. Dmitri does that without even blinking an eye , because at the end of the day he loves Bren like no other. Things really start heating up and after a kidnapping attempt on Bren, Dmitri makes the decision to move all of his family members to Germany for awhile. Bren and Dmitri have a lot of issues, but they stand strong in the face of adversity and their love seems truly invincible. I give this my ratings of 3 – it was ok, give it a try.

Favorite Quotes : 1. “That’s it, boy,” Dmitri said. “Stick that cute little ass in the air. I’m going to smack my big balls against those tight round cheeks. I could fuck you till you pass out and I’d still be shoving my big dick into your wet hole.” ( Nothing like a bit of dirty talk to get Bren’s engine revving.)

2.“Good boy. Now come on, open up more for me. I want to get in deeper. Swallow my cock with your wet boy lips. I’m going to come deeper inside your ass.” Dmitri wrapped his arm around Brennen, stroking his cock faster. Dmitri twisted Brennen’s nip rings with his other hand, bringing moans of pleasure from him. He shifted hands, holding his hairless balls while pulling his foreskin back as far as possible. The pain and pleasure caused Brennen to moan in delight. He spread his legs wider, allowing Dmitri fuller access. “Ahh—I’m coming,” Dmitri shouted. Dmitri flooded him with his cum, igniting Brennen to spill his load in five quick spurts. Brennen made animal grunting sounds as his cum landed in Dmitri’s hand. He milked Dmitri until he pulled out. Both rolled into each other’s arms. ( These two were meant for each other, they are soooo hot together.)

Assassin 3: Sins of the Father by Fyn Alexander

Title : Sins of the Father                Word Count :77,949

Genre : Contemporary Gay Romance

Blurb : MI6 assassin, Kael Saunders, is a larger than life, dominant master who finds himself becoming a Daddy to nineteen-year-old Angel Button. Over the last year and a half Kael and Angel have settled into a loving Dom/sub relationship. But no matter how comfortable the highly intelligent and ruthless assassin and his sweet, eager, loving boy become with each other, Kael is still the boss and Angel wants him to remain so, whether in the dungeon, the bedroom, or the kitchen. Naturally submissive, Angel has learned how to be a good Daddy’s boy and a good slave, but his childlike willfulness still makes itself known now and again.

When Angel is kidnapped by an enemy of Kael’s, he’ll stop at nothing to save his boy, but his boy may have to take what he’s learned and help him.

My Review : Kael and Angel are back again, only this time the mood is a little different.  Kael has to deal with  a recalcitrant young man when he doesn’t get his own way. Angel wants to take a year off before going to university and Kael believes he knows what’s best for his boy. Kael’s boss Conran has suggested that Angel go into the service seeing as how his training  is so precise after being trained by Kael who is the best. Kael wants something totally different and better for his boy. He does not condone Angel becoming an assassin. Kael would much rather Angel go to Cambridge University and get a history degree,  but Angel feels like he can’t measure up to Kael’s esteem.

 In a pique of anger, Angel runs away from his ‘Daddy’ rather than stay and be disciplined. He gets himself in serious trouble when he gets drunk and drugged in a bar. Daddy Kael is just in time to stop Angel from being raped by a man  in his fifties. Angel is very sick when he comes home and Kael takes care of him, but he is not happy about it. Angel is still being rebellious and he feels adrift on a sea of unsurity and helplessness. Kael not knowing what else to do , locks him in the cage. 

Kael needs to realign his expectations for Angel and that pisses him off. Angel has always been a great sub, but at the end of the day he is still just a teenager with all these adult expectations foisted upon him. Kael learns that he can’t always control everything and Conran actually imparts some useful advice. Kael rewards Conran with a flogging and a good hard fuck with a dildo. Angel apologizes to his daddy and Kael takes him to the dungeon and uses the cane on him while he is hanging upside down  with a hood over his head. Kael knows that above all else , Angel hates the hood and that makes it a true punishment especially when he sticks a piece of gingeroot in his most sensitive place. I found this to be truly archaic,  even for Kael.

 Life goes back to normal for them , but when old ghosts and secrets from Kael’s past come back to haunt him, his life is in uproar. For the first time ever, Kael gets so angry at Angel and slaps him for disclosing some parts of Kael’s past that has the potential to hurt Kael’s mom. There is one thing that is clear throughout this series, there is only two people that Kael loves above all else and that’s his mom and Angel. Angel is ashamed for disappointing his daddy, and Kael is devastated that he actually hurt Angel physically outside of their consensual meetings in the dungeon. 

This incident was truly an eye opener for Kael when his mother pointed out how scared Angel is in his presence sometimes.  Kael realized for the first time that his rigidity is very off putting and causes a barrier in his relationship with Angel. He starts to understand that loosening the reins could go a far way in curbing some of Angel’s rebellious ways. Kael questions his methods and sees that he is probably stifling Angel’s  youthful exuberance in his quest for training the perfect ‘boy’. Kael apologized and treated Angel like the precious boy that he is and gives some leeway for spontaneity.  This results in a hot lovemaking session where Angel rocks his world with a ride of his life. The sexual chemistry is out of this world between these two, the sex is better than ever.

Angel schooled his daddy in how to live in the moment and just have fun, even when in his dungeon. Lots of love, discipline and a bit of leniency brought out the best in Angel. He made Kael proud by getting into Cambridge University  and Kael allows Angel the freedom to take a year off to train as an agent. Kael has really mellowed out under Angel’s tutelage in how to be more human. Kael has become a better daddy and he now proudly embraces his feelings for his boy and shows his love unrestrainedly. I give this my ratings of 5 – bring out the vibrators. Another great addition to the series,  I am never bored or dissapointed to hear about these two. Kudos to Fyn Alexander for keeping it fresh, interesting and sexy all the time.

Assassin 2: Be Brave by Fyn Alexander

Title : Be Brave               Word Count :76,857

Genre : Contemporary Gay Romance

Blurb : MI6 assassin Kael Saunders was supposed to kill Angel Button after he witnessed a kill. Not only did Kael refuse to hurt Angel, but he took him home and fell in love with him. Living together now in a loving D/s relationship, Angel wants to follow in his daddy’s footsteps while Kael is determined to keep his boy out of the dangerous world of international assassins.

During an assignment Kael finds a little girl who is caught up in human trafficking and determines to rescue her. When he is taken prisoner Angel sets out to find his beloved Daddy and bring him home.

My Review : The angel and his assassin are back again and hotter than ever. Angel is now in school and having very productive days. He strives to make his ‘daddy’ proud by being obedient and submissive. Typical 18 yr old , he gets into trouble every now and then and this leads to a flogging which is not very pleasurable for him , but he knows that his daddy has his best interests at heart. Kael has to remind him every now and then not to talk about their relationship to his school friends , because they are not mature enough to grasp the full concept of their D/s lifestyle.  Angel in all his naiveté possess a certain level of maturity that gains the love and respect of his protective ‘daddy’.

 It is clear to see that although sex is a big component in their relationship,  Kael truly loves Angel and he takes care of him like no other.  ‘Daddy’ Kael is there to guide Angel into a progressive future where he will finish college and university and go on to be whatever he wants to become. Kael gives Angel a chance at life that he wouldn’t have gotten had he stayed with his selfish self -serving mother.

Throughout this book we are able to see a gentler, more caring human side to Kael rather than the trained assassin that is so ingrained in him. Kael takes fewer missions now that Angel has become a part of his life.

It is on one of these missions to extract a pedophile where he sees a 9 yr old sex slave desperately in need of his help. He idly promises to get her out, but when he goes back home  he can’t sleep for thinking of her. He goes back in, not as an assassin but as a human being who made a promise to a little girl. The extraction doesn’t go as planned and he is captured and tortured by the vicious animals running the sex slave ring filled with children.

Angel becomes really agitated when Kael doesn’t come back from his mission on time . He seeks out Kael’s boss Conran and pleads with him to find his ‘daddy’.  ‘Daddy’ has trained Angel well and so he ends up in  France with an operative on the hunt to bring Daddy safely home.

Angel kills a few men and does some unspeakable things to get Kael out . Kael is so proud that his ‘boy’ was so brave. He feels honored to have the love and affection of his Angel. They are both introspective when they get home and they wrap themselves in each other. Daddy sets things in motion so that Angel will be well taken care of if ever  he gets in trouble again which he undoubtedly will given his line of work. I really enjoyed this storyline even more so than the first book. There are some parts of the BDSM lifestyle that I just can’t understand like the mummification process, enemas among others that doesn’t sit well with me , but to each his own. I give this my ratings of 4 – lose the underwear. 

Tucker Springs 3: Dirty Laundry by Heidi Cullinan

Title : Dirty Laundry                    Word Count :71,400

Genre : Contemporary Gay Romance

Blurb : Entomology grad student Adam Ellery meets Denver Rogers, a muscle-bound hunk of sexy, when Denver effortlessly dispatches the drunken frat boys harassing Adam at the Tucker Springs laundromat. Thanking him turns into flirting, and then, much to Adam’s delight, hot sex over the laundry table.

Though Denver’s job as a bouncer at a gay bar means he gets his pick of geek-sexy college twinks, he can’t get Adam out of his head. Adam seems to need the same rough play Denver does, and it’s damn hard to say no to such a perfect fit.

Trouble is, Adam isn’t just shy: he has obsessive compulsive disorder and clinical anxiety, conditions which have ruined past relationships. And while Denver might be able to bench-press a pile of grad students, he comes from a history of abuse and is terrified of getting his GED. Neither Denver nor Adam want to face their dirty laundry, but to stay together, they’re going to have to come clean.

My Review : Denver and Adam’s relationship starts out hot and heavy from the beginning.  This is so weird and insanely hot, since they are strangers that meet for the first time in a laundromat. They are complete opposites and they complement each other perfectly.  Adam is a PhD student studying hawk moths, who has a severe case of OCD and panic attacks.  Denver is a gym junkie who is extremely ripped , works as a bouncer and has a learning disability.  One thing is for sure, Denver is the perfect Dom for Adams submissive nature.

Both these characters are very lovable and I can really feel the chemistry between them. This is the kind of dominant/submissive relationship I love to see. Their relationship shows the outside world and how it plays out, rather than being inundated  with aspects of the BDSM lifestyle that leaves me puzzled. Adam’s OCD plays a major role in who he is as a person and how he reacts to the environment and navigate relationships in his everyday life. His OCD  stems from spatial infringement, which causes him to have panic attacks if someone is in his private space or even public space for too long. It is hard for him to not categorize space according to where people belong. This made for a very interesting read as it led to the main characters having sex in some unusual and very public spaces which was highly entertaining and erotic.

Adam and Denver finds themselves in a relationship that they both need even though they hide their insecurities from each other. Adam is afraid to let Denver know about his OCD and Denver doesn’t  want to admit that his learning disabilities is holding him back. Adam gives Denver the freedom to be in charge through spankings and deep throat fucking which allows him to enter subspace and create a free zone from worries about pain  attacks and OCD. I really enjoyed watching Denver trying to cull Adam’s OCD with his dominant nature.

Once they were able to admit to each other  their deepest insecurities , they were able to navigate their relationship with fluidity. They developed a bond so strong that stood the test of time and was able to hold up under the pressures of their personalities.  I totally loved this book and I embraced their happily ever after right along side them. Perfect couple, perfect sex,  it really hit the spot. Yeah, that spot 😉. I give this my ratings of 5 – bring out the vibrators. 

Favorite Quotes : 1. “That’s right.” The finger breaching Adam pushed deeper, and Adam moaned again. “This is all you have to do. Don’t worry about who’s watching. I’m watching. I’m watching my finger go into your ass, watching you spread open for me. You gonna take my cock next, sweet thing? You gonna moan all over my folded clothes while I fuck you?” The finger fucked Adam gently but insistently. “Right here on the table where everyone can see?” (There is nothing hotter than being commanded to do dirty things to your body while someone else has the pleasure of watching 😀.)

2. Denver laughed, a wicked sound. “Yeah. You like this. You like this more than you want to admit. Ass in the air in a laundromat, finger-fucked by a guy you just met. Humping my laundry.” Another slap, another groan from Adam. “There you go, boy. Make noise. I like to hear noise. I know you want my cock in your ass, right here on this table, but it ain’t happening until you make more noise.” This time the slap stung, going straight to Adam’s cock. “Come on. Let me hear it. ( Sex with a stranger, kinda hottt😈. )

3. Resting his weight on the soft, clean mat Denver had spread out, Adam reached around and dutifully played with his asshole for Denver’s enjoyment. He pulled his cheeks apart and flexed his hole. He held himself open to be filled with lube, and then he greased himself with it, first fucking himself and then fucking and spreading himself, encouraged by the appreciative noises and occasional slaps Denver gave his ass and thighs. They never hurt, but they jarred him, reminding him this was for Denver, that he was for Denver, that his ass and its spreading and fucking was all for Denver. Adam wanted to be like this for Denver forever, the world simplified and held away by the iron sides of the truck and Denver’s size, strength, and softness. Because he wasn’t hard, not right now. He was soft, relaxed, enjoying the porn show Adam gave him, commenting on how good he looked with his hole stretched and his three fingers fucking hard in and out. Adam whimpered and gave him more, gave him what he wanted, what he seemed to need, but mostly what he asked for. ( Too hot to handle. I love it.)
