Find out how it all began for Peter and Christian.

Before Toby met Damon, Peter and Christian found each other on the internet.

Still in the army, Christian was inexperienced in not only BDSM, but sex altogether. Still, he has yearnings and furtively explores them in online chatrooms.

Luckily for Christian, seasoned Dom Peter recognizes Christian’s lack of experience and a kindred spirit in the man, and they take their conversations to text messages and Skype calls.

After Christian’s last deployment and only a few months before his discharge, he takes leave and visits Peter so the two men can see if they are as compatible in person as they seem to be online.

This is the beginning of a beautiful relationship.)

This was a story that I enjoyed a lot.  This was more of a discovery story.  You have Christian who is just learning what he needs and wants and then you have Peter, the established Dom in the relationship.

They have great chemistry and Peter is ever patient with Christian’s struggle both internal and external.

It’s a quick read, but one that packs a lot in to the short number of pages.  You get to see the relationship go from friendship to lovers, but it’s not necessarily rushed and most definitely not an insta-love story.

Overall, this was a great short story about finding out what you need and want and not being afraid of going for it.



I haven’t read the previous stories but now that I have read this book I will be going back and reading them. I loved this book. It did move a little fast and there were some things that were left out that I would have liked to know, like the internet conversations between Peter and Christian. All that aside this was fast paced and H.O.T. Yes Christian was hesitant and Peter was a little bit pushy but I think it worked for this couple and I simply loved them. I can’t wait to go back and read how they are currently as a couple.



This was a really good BDSM story by an author I love. This is the first book in this series that I’ve read and I feel it can be read as a standalone. Sean Michael is an author that gives me my BDSM story but it is clearly entertaining. I would put this book in line with his Hammer Series; it was fun and loving type of story. I immediately had a connection with Christian (l love my military men) and quickly came to love Peter as well. These characters clearly had a connection to each other that fulfilled both of their needs. As I’ve read many books by this author I can definitely say that there is emotion, yet tenderness in the story as well as a lot of really hot sex. If you like BDSM stories then I would highly recommend reading this book.

Often referred to as “Space Cowboy” and “Gangsta of Love” while still striving for the moniker of “Maurice,” Sean Michael spends his days surfing, smutting, organizing his immense gourd collection and fantasizing about one day retiring on a small secluded island peopled entirely by horseshoe crabs. While collecting vast amounts of vintage gay pulp novels and mood rings, Sean whiles away the hours between dropping the f-bomb and persuing the kama sutra by channeling the long lost spirit of John Wayne and singing along with the soundtrack to “Chicago.”

A long-time writer of complicated haiku, currently Sean is attempting to learn the advanced arts of plate spinning and soap carving sex toys.

Barring any of that? He’ll stick with writing his stories, thanks, and rubbing pretty bodies together to see if they spark.
