When Hunter Simms goes undercover at an underground BDSM party, the last thing he expects to see is SWAT’s leading shooter Keifer Magnessen bound, gagged, plugged and very naked. He is immediately drawn to Keifer, and wants to get to know his fellow cop better. Much better.
With such a high stress job, Keifer needs to give up control on his down time in order to decompress, but it’s a secret he holds close to his vest. So, when Hunter walks into his chosen place to submit, he tries to cut and run. Lucky for him, Hunter is shrewd, persistent and quite possibly just the Dom that Keifer needs.
Can these two strong men find a way to make their personal lives mesh?
Love Sean Michael's stories, I love his characters in all his stories and his writing style. This story has amazing characters, love Hunter he's sexy, sweet and a total Dom but believes being a Dom first and foremost is after care with your sub. Keifer is sexy as hell, a sniper and a stubborn son of a gun but he needs someone to care, someone to hold him, touch him and love him.....he just doesn't want to admit it...I love these two characters together, they have amazing chemistry and are both stubborn as hell..great story with some twists and turns, I thought I wanted more of them in work mood, like solving the cases together but after finishing the story it was necessary the story was written as it was, amazing!!...loved it...can't wait to read more by this author. 4.5 stars
"Do you want me to observe only this evening?"
"For a few hours at least. Jack has vouched for you, but it's important to learn us, how we work."
Hunter nodded slowly. If these people were forcing men to be subs, making them stay, abusing them, he'd be very surprised. This level of care didn't come out of a place of abuse.
"Let's go downstairs. I'll introduce you around. Ben wants to shave his boy today, head to toe, and he wants an audience."
"Even eyebrows?" That was some hard core shit. And wouldn't that surprise people who thought BDSM was all about whips and chains?
"Everything. This isn't a punishment, but Pete is having serious issues with hiding from Ben."
"Ah, Ben sounds like a very wise man." Inventive, attentive, a good master.
Hunt already liked this group. If it turned out anyone was being held here against their will, if they weren't on the up and up, he was going to be extremely disappointed.
"They're both learning, but they're getting there."
"Are they a new couple?" Hunt asked, watching Dan move around the kitchen, triple checking everything.
Jack answered him. "Yeah, Ben has been waiting for Pete for years, but the connection is new."
"I look forward to seeing them together, then. Watching their scene."
"It should be intense, emotional. Pete is a fighter."
Hunt nodded, already affected, just by the conversation.
Daniel chuckled. "Pete used to be a surgeon, and he had a breakdown. Went to work on a construction crew before he started working from home."
"Those high pressure jobs often produce subs, don't they?" The best sub Hunt had ever had was a man who ran a fortune five hundred company.
"You know it. We have a number of subs that are desperate to break, to allow someone else in."
"I enjoy a challenge." Hunt had to remind himself he was here on the job, not to find someone.
Jack grinned. "Me, I'm looking for a sweet boy, a good bottom who likes a hard fuck but isn't pushing constantly."
Daniel's laughter filled the air. "In other words, you're not looking for a boy like Keif?"
"Fuck, no. No, Keif needs an owner, not a Dom."
Hunt's eyebrow went up. "Keif?"
"One of our unattached subs," Daniel said. "He's got the need to be hard-used, broken down. No one man can handle him, no offense Jack."
"Is he here tonight?" Hunter asked, intrigued despite himself.
"He's with our group every night he's not on call."
"Is that a yes?" Because he hadn't heard a yes.
"He is here -- plugged, bound, gagged, and, I would imagine well-sounded by now."
Jesus Christ. A bolt of pure desire went through Hunt.
Daniel grabbed a case of water. "Come on, guys. Let's go down."
"Can I take anything?" Hunt offered.
"Can you grab the fruit bowl? I find fruit to be hydrating, erotic, and less messy than chocolate."
"You got it." These guys were pros at this hosting a BDSM party thing and Hunt found himself once again hoping they were all on the up and up. He wanted to play, not to make arrests.
Following Dan downstairs, he felt his anticipation ramping up.
Instead of a dark, club-like atmosphere, downstairs there was a room with couches and lamps, pillows. It looked totally normal, at least until he saw the cage in one corner. The massage table. The man kneeling, wearing nothing but a collar.
Hunter took everything in, eyes moving over the men in the room, cataloging them. The man in the collar had to be Pete, the slender, whip-like man looking on proudly, Ben. There were a couple of men sitting together, a few wandering. In the back, bound and ring gagged, cock stuffed was...
Wait. Wait. Hunter knew that shock of near-white hair, the icy blue eyes. He saw that face every time the SWAT team was called out. Keifer Magnessen.
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 pursuing 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.
Interview with amazing author Sean Michael
I would love to know where you get your ideas from, are they all dreamt up or are some about your own personal life?I take in everything I see, read, and hear. It's all fodder for potential stories. A visit to a bdsm toy store online might spark a new character or two with a specific kink or need. An overheard conversation at the grocery store could generate a novel. Or that gorgeous guy who just dropped his wallet in front of me and bent over to pick it up? He could ignite a whole series of books. It's all about keeping yourself open to what's going on around you and trusting in your brain to mash it all up and make something yummy out of it.Can you share something about your work in progress?Well, I usually work on a number of stories at the same time, but the one I'm currently most excited about is the next Mannies novel. Adam is 24 and has five younger siblings. His parents died in a crash a little more than three years ago and he's been trying to juggle bringing them up and finishing school. When his Mentor also passes away and leaves him a huge house and a bunch of money, he hires someone to help -- Hutch. It's been great fun to write and should be available in December.Any advice for writers or wanna be writers like myself?Yes, read everything you can get your hands on, not just the genre you want to read in, but everything. And just do it. Write, write and write some more. Write every single day, even if you don't want to, even if it's just for fifteen or twenty minutes. Do it.What are some go to writers you read?I love reading, and I read through all genres. Timothy Findlay and Margaret Atwood, Stephen King and Agatha Christi, Tolkien and Wells, I could go on and on.
