Tad’s weekend started out like any other; hitting a college frat party with a handful of buddies. But just as the evening hits its peak, things get up-ended fast. Ditched by his drunken, trolling friends, Tad winds up getting hustled by three jocks playing poker. Now he’s forced to pay his dues in the most outlandish of ways; accepting a couple broken bones or spending an hour with his victors’ favorite flogger, Scott. But the guy’s tantalizing torture quickly proves to be the least of Tad’s worries… and the kickoff to a night of raw, shocking lust.
Experience the graphic, minute-by-minute account of that hour spent at the hands of Tad’s insatiable tormentor. Addicting chemistry lights the stage as Scott ignites Tad’s reluctant desires into a frenzy of forbidden need.

Macky’s Review

Calling all Sinfully Smutmonster members! Don your non-melty panties, turn down the air con, place kindle in brown paper bag if reading in public and prepare for intense flushing and seat squirming!

You have been warned...kinky fuckery ahead...and it's HOT HOT HOT!!!

This is round one of straight college boy Tad's journey of self discovery, and initiation into the joys of gay sex, after losing a game of poker at a frat party to three A-hole jocks… the price of losing, either a broken arm OR a flogging session with a Dom of his victors choosing. Weighing up the choices he reckons the safer option has to be the flogging, but little does our Taddy know what he's actually letting himself in for...

Clueless as to what's about to happen, Tad thinks he's just going to go in there, take his whuppin' and leave with his debt paid and his reputation only slightly dented. What he doesn't expect is (within minutes) to be stripped naked, tethered to a mechanically articulated leather wall and left at the mercy of a relentlessly sexy personal trainer Dom who likes to play hard and has all the toys and paraphernalia to prove it. It looks like whatever happens he's fucked...literally!

You can't take this too seriously, it is what it is; sex, sex and more sex, but if you love your smut and not looking for a hearts and flowers romance then you're going to find this one an enjoyably, engaging cornucopia of porny hotness and it's all down to its two really likable protagonists, who among the unceasing sex fest manage to exude a yummy chemistry that draws you into their sexual shenanigans. This is unashamedly naughty erotica and over the course of its pages it's fast, furious, fun and filthy. Under 100 pages, its short, no holds barred and deliciously kinky. I get the idea that over the course of the series their unconventional relationship is going to grow, so I suppose this is still a romance of sorts, but the main focus in this novellette is definitely their jizztastic sexual escapade and it sure does sizzle. **Fanning face!**

Scott oozes a cheeky, confident charm and sexuality and an uncertain Tad is his perfect foil. Supposedly straight, but with hints from the start that this predicament isn't quite as abhorrent to him as you would expect, his surprising reactions to Scott's domination tell a different story, especially when he discovers just how 'sweet' a certain spot is, and how good Scott is at manipulating that spot with more than one of his probing appendages. Ooh, that Scott is one sexy mo-fo!

I do admit to being a bit unsure as to why the three jocks would choose the punishment they did for Tad? There's a vague explanation about their connection to Scott but I wasn't really sure what benefits they really gained as they disappear once they've dropped him at his sex-stination...oops I mean destination...but "WHATEVER!" The good bits start the minute he walks into Scott's BDSM basement and end when, after having the best orgasmic experience ever, he leaves satisfied but confused, feelings wise, about what's just happened to him. What he does have though is an invitation from Scott to "Stop by any time you want" and despite his protestations that he's not really gay, you just know he’s going to be back for more...and so will I because my smut-o-meter does like to be filled on a regular basis and I think these two bad, bad boys will continue to boost it nicely!

**Winks** This is now on my ‘naughty’ shelf and I’m making room for the rest!

Tad could feel his jaw ticking, even as his cheeks reheated. “Fine.” He shucked off everything but his boxers, then glared at the obstacle looming in front of him. “What the hell is this thing, anyway?”

“My roommate and I have lovingly coined it: the Wall of Confliction.”

Tad quirked a brow. “You seriously call it that?”

Scott’s tone turned wry. “We most certainly do.”

“Why the fuck for?”

“Mm. That’d spoil the surprise.”

“Whatever,” Tad scowled, still not facing the guy. But the sound of feet padding closer had his blood pressure climbing fast. Not that his heart wasn’t already pounding.

“Boxers, too, Tad,” Scott murmured in his ear. “I’m to give you the full-body treatment.”

Tad groaned. Even his ass was going to get whipped? Cursing under his breath, he ditched the last of his clothes. “There. Happy?”

A low, dark chuckle. “Oh, shy boy, you have no idea.”

“Stop calling me that.”

“Stop playing the part.”

Tad bristled, but then stiffened as Scott took his wrist and lifted it up… to a buckle restraint attached to a resin-coated chain. It must’ve been tucked in the wall’s upper right corner. Swiftly, Scott secured it into place.

Tad struggled not to freak out. “Is this really necessary? I agreed not to leave.”

“It’s necessary,” Scott assured, doing the same with his other arm. He dropped into a squat to hit Tad’s ankles next, firmly easing them apart.

“For shit’s sake,” Tad groused. “My fucking feet, too?”

“Mm Hmm.”

Tad glowered, even as his heart rate rose to jackhammer status.
