Will new revelations about Hunter’s desires rekindle the romance with Kyle or put an end to things?
Committed couple Hunter and Kyle have been together a long time. They love each other very much, but they’re apart a lot, and there are very few surprises left in the bedroom anymore. Or are there?
When business trips lead Hunter to some eye-opening time on the internet, he discovers a side to himself that he never knew existed. The kinky things he learns make him want Kyle all the more, make him want to go home and play all sorts of naughty games. He feels compelled to tell Kyle about it, even if he’s embarrassed, wanting to be honest. Will their relationship survive his revelation? Or will Kyle be disgusted by this new side of him?

This is a very sexy, charming story about introducing kink into a long-term relationship.
Hunter and Kyle have been together for a long time. While Kyle stays home to work as a personal shopper, Hunter must travel frequently for business. He often occupies his evenings away with porn, but one night he stumbles into a rather more titillating chatroom.
This is Hunter’s first introduction to the world of BDSM and he really likes it. Does he have the courage to tell Kyle and are they both ready to introduce some new excitement into their relationship?
I loved this. The two men are such realistic long-term partners. There is no drama in the relationship, just solid affection and open communication. We originally see the two men in quite stereotypical roles, but it is great watching them alter long-held behaviour patterns.
And very hot! I was ready to find my own sexy chatroom by the end of the book. This story comes long after the traditional HEA and it is wonderful to watch such a fabulous relationship between long-term partners that isn’t at all boring – or vanilla!
The kink in this book is very mild and realistic for a couple exploring for the first time. Compared to most books that include BDSM, I really like this more personal and less formal introduction of a little bit of kink between two men who already love each other.
This is a short story, and I think with further development it could be a fantastic novel. Highly recommended.

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.
