It started with an accidental click…but where will it end?

Desperate to turn in a paper, Adam borrows his roommate’s computer and mistakenly opens a folder that contains Josh’s collection of porn. Adam had no idea that his jock roommate was gay—and into leashes, paddles and domination. And Adam, an inexperienced virgin who’s only ever kissed one guy, is surprised to find himself curious about submitting…

Josh can’t believe that his roommate discovered his spank bank—and he can’t believe that Adam is so turned on by the thought of giving up control to someone. Taking a chance, he offers to look through the photos with Adam…and maybe try acting some of them out.

Night after night, the boys delve into their darkest fantasies of domination and submission. And as lust and experimentation grow into the promise of something deeper, Adam must decide if he’s brave enough to tell Josh how he feels.

Review: Having been a writer and reader of gay fanfiction for a very long time, I’m pretty strict on original stories like these, expecting the same kind of quality that one can find in fandom. Luckily, this one delivers. In spades. It’s a straightforward college story, with two roommates who are nearly complete opposites but at least are genial with each other. One is seemingly straight, ‘typical jock’, while the other is seemingly gay, who’s more into hitting the books than hitting the hay with someone else.

By way of happenstance, one finds out about the other’s porn folder, cause of course, and it’s full of gay pictures. But not just any old gay pics, but of the BDSM variety. This gets him curious and after an awkward, but expected, reveal, the roommates decide to try and navigate the kink and BDSM world together.

I was completely ready for cringe worthy first times of either extreme, it being all awkward and sloppy, or it being too perfect and right. Luckily, it was neither! It was sexy and sweet, and nuanced as the boys figure things out and are scared yet thoughtful of the others. All the while being the sort to ‘not really talk about it’ when they were just being themselves. Full on sex doesn’t happen at first either, which was refreshing, considering BDSM isn’t always about penetration or sex.

I wouldn’t consider this a full PWP, as there’s a bit of storyline, of the boys coming to realizations of not only their feelings for each other, but also of what it means to be kinky, and gay. Nothing completely serious to lose from the overall sexy mood, but enough to ground in reality and seriously, just couldn’t stop reading. Didn’t even skip the non-smutty bits either.

I would certainly recommend this one to others interested in gay erotica or BDSM or both. It’s not too heavy or kink filled (at least for me) but gives a great taste of it. I really hope we’ll see more from this author!

Cover: I adore the cover. It’s sexy and very easy to look at, haha. There’s only the barest of hints to garner what type of gay erotic it could be without having read the summary.
