Title: Sicario (World’s End #1)
Author Name: Kai Tyler
Publication Date & Length: July 12, 2015 – 30 pgs


Dear Author,
He is the most captivating creature I have ever seen. A human. So frail in body, yet his strength is undeniable. And though he caught the eye of many, he is mine now. No one else could match my bid. In a couple minutes they will release him to me. And I will never let him go.

I am under no illusions. I know he will look upon my deformations and find me hideous. He will be repulsed by my weakness and wish to belong to a finer warrior. But at least I will not be like the others of my kind. I will not use my greater size and strength to hurt and control him. I will not squash the pride in his eyes, equal to any of my people. His beautiful back will never feel the lash again. At least with me he will be free of the pain. But not free to leave. Never free to leave me.

Photo Description:
A man is bound with coarse, wound rope, hands stretched to the sides and back, body bowed from the waist and head tilted downwards. On the outside he appears beaten. Broken. A man willing to submit to whatever life and his captors have in store for him. But watch his hands. The determined way he grips the ropes. This is a warrior and while the battle may be lost, the war is not over.

This story was written as a part of the M/M Romance Group’sLove is an Open Road” event. Group members were asked to write a story prompt inspired by a photo of their choice. Authors of the group selected a photo and prompt that spoke to them and wrote a short story.

This was an interesting little story for sure. However, while it was interesting, I felt like a lot of it was only half developed.
The writing style was very smooth and it was easy to read, however, we are left with so many questions unanswered, not to mention how fast time progresses. I understand the progression and the desire there, but it could’ve used more development between the characters.
There was a lot of promise in the story, but it needed to answer all the questions that were left open at the end of the book. What happened to these characters? Will we ever know? It would’ve made more sense to me if the next book in the series had been about what happens with them, but as it is about other people, I was left greatly disappointed.

Although I’m new to writing MM Romance, I’ve been a reader and lover of the genre for many years. When I’m not helping other authors promote their works, you might find me in a coffee shop, day dreaming about how the cute couple in the corner fell in love. You can also find me online ogling images of hot men, which I do share btw.
