Deeper, a Hammer novel by Sean MichaelDeeper, a Hammer Novel by Sean Michael
Torquere Press, December 2013: ISBN: 978-1-61040-628-4

Johnny diMarco is a spoiled, rich brat who has made his way through almost every Dom at The Hammer Club. None of them can handle him. Even Oliver has tried and has sadly had to admit defeat.

Dolph Waters is a newcomer to the Hammer, but he’s been a Dom at a club up north for quite a while. When he hears about Johnny, he’s intrigued and agrees to meet the sub and give it his best shot.

It doesn’t take long for Dolph to realize that Johnny needs far more than a simple blistering spanking, the sub needs attention and intense focus from his Dom. The more he gets to know Johnny, the more Dolph falls for him and wants to be the one to give Johnny what he needs. His biggest obstacle is Johnny himself who has decided that BDSM is a lie, one he isn’t interested in anymore.

Can Dolph convince Johnny that they can not only be friends, and lovers, but also Dom and sub? Or is he doomed to have his heart broken?

fFettered by Lyn Gala
Dreamspinner Press Press, February 2013; ISBN-10: 1623803616

Dylan Carter has always played second fiddle to his perfect older brother, but now that brother is implicated in a terrible crime, and Dylan's family is imploding. Dylan can’t hide anymore. Knowing he’s falling apart, he searches for something or someone to hold him together—and lands in a BDSM bar called the Stonewall.

Dylan doesn’t understand Miss Dolphinia, the hard-drinking queen who seems determined to play matchmaker. But more confusing is the way the powerful men in leather make him feel. In her wisdom, Miss Dolphinia sends Dylan off to a back room for his introduction to the world of erotic spankings and bondage.

Dylan’s teacher—for want of a better word—is the very dominant Vin Hauser. Vin likes to play hard, but he’s honest with himself—he knows all those men want is a strong hand, not a long-term relationship. Yet Vin can’t help but hope Dylan might be different.

With controversy over his brother’s sins stirring up danger around him, Dylan needs Vin’s support more than ever. But until he and Vin learn to trust each other, Dylan will have to face his fear and the growing threats alone.

Big Man on Campus: Fresh Gay Erotica by Shane Allison (Ed)Big Man on Campus: Fresh Gay Erotica by Shane Allison (Ed)
Cleis Press, September 2013; ISBN-10: 1573449679

You've seen him strutting across the green, knowing full well every eye is on him. College guys are the stuff of fantasies but there are those who rise to the head of the class, the "big man on campus" who is like a greek god with his bulging biceps, six pack abs, legs that go on for miles. These dreamy hunks stride across campus, inciting lust with every step. Whether showering off after soccer, posing in the library stacks, getting greased up for a wresting match with the 'bros or engaging in some male bonding at the fraternity house, these gorgeous lads and grads are good for page-turning, arousing action.

An enticingly explicit collection of gay erotica, Big Man on Campus explores the first feelings of lust for another boy, all-night study sessions with a classmate, and the excitement of a student hot for teacher. This steamy collection relishes the joys of self-discovery and the revelations that happen when a young man has freedom to pursue his interests—in bed and out. From coming out to falling in love, these stories of sexual awakening will evoke trembling, heart-pounding, sweaty-palmed excitement. Editor himself gets the frat party started with a true confession of his own campus encounter.

Wired Hard 5 by Joy Crelin (Ed)Wired Hard 5 by Joy Crelin (Ed)
Circlet Press, August 2013

Wired Hard 5 continues the tradition begun with the 1994 publication of Wired Hard, collecting five stories examining gay male sexuality through the lens of erotic science fiction and fantasy. Blending spacecraft and magecraft, hard edges and sincere sweetness, humanity and something other, the five stories in Wired Hard 5 explore themes of isolation, loneliness, and intimate connection.

In Jonathan Hepburn’s “The Halfway Point,” an astronaut finds himself gravitating toward a crewmate as their ship moves farther from Earth, while in Hero Freyr’s “Human Bonds,” an elf stripped of his magic finds solace in a being as lost as he. “The Amnesiaphiliac,” by Benji Bright, chronicles a doomed romance in a floating city consumed by an epidemic of forgetting, and in Laylah Hunter’s “Direct Connection,” a sentient artificial intelligence and a human man make the most intimate connection of all. Finally, an apprentice sex mage comes into his own in Sasha Payne’s “Season of Fire.”

Wrestling at the frat house, toga parties, plenty of pledge paddlings, and initiations of the sexy kind will have every man on campus lined up to join the fraternity of beautiful men who know how to have fun, especially with each other! Shane Allison, recipient of the Gaybie Award for his fine fiction in College Boys returns to the campus for another set of page-turning, arousing adventures featuring hunky undergrads getting it on.

Ryan Field shows us that pledge sex is the best sex in “It’s Not Hazing, It’s Brotherhood.” Hot, sweaty sex ensues between a pledge and his handsome professor in Heidi Champa’s “Caught Red Handed.” There’s some major heat to the seat action going on in Logan Zachary’s “Spank You, Sir, Could I Have Another?” The lines of gay and straight get blurred in Pepper Espinoza’s, “On Restriction.” Barry Lowe has got something for the most loyal of butt connoisseur in “Spin the Bottom.” Two young pledges are put through a series of seedy challenges in Eric Del Carlo’s “Pecking Order.” Gregory Norris amazes with “Heaven Week.” Michael Bracken proves that you have to “give” some head to get ahead in “What a Rush.”

Show-Offs: Gay Erotic Stories by Richard Labonte (Ed)Show-Offs: Gay Erotic Stories by Richard Labonté (Ed)
Cleis Press, May 2013; ISBN-10: 1573448176

Some men like to watch, and some men like to be watched. Some men are real Show Offs.The universe has a way of balancing things out, doesn’t it? We’re not talking sidewalk cruising here, that natural inclination for one man to appreciate another man’s body in passing, perhaps leading to full-on sex, perhaps fueling, once he’s alone, a climactic fantasy. No, the stories in this collection are more furtive: the desired body savored voyeuristically through a window, through a crack in the closet door, through a camera lens, sometimes from right across the room; the body desired flaunting manly wares while bathing in a river, playing in a bathhouse, wearing a leaving-nothing-to-the-imagination thong.

Forget “like”: some men need to be watched; some men need to watch. These are their stories.

The Hardest Thing: A Dan Stagg Mystery by James LearThe Hardest Thing: A Dan Stagg Mystery by James Lear
Cleis Press, June 2013; ISBN-10: 1573449296

Dan Stagg is an ex-military man who fell foul of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Dan is in his late 30s, tall, and muscular. He had a successful career with the US Marines and rose to the rank of Major, with active service in the first Gulf War, Kosovo and Afghanistan. Since 2009 he’s been back in civilian life, and is finding it very hard to adjust. Like Jack Reacher, Lee Child's protagonist, Dan is prone to violence, always upholding what he views as justice. He has few personal ties, nearly no belongings, tries to live under the radar.

Dan gets fired from his low-paying job as a security guard at a New York City nightclub after a fight with some particularly obnoxious patrons. Jobless, living in a crappy room in Harlem, and broke, Dan’s offered a great deal of money to do a protection job for the young male "secretary" of a powerful real estate developer. The young man in question is vain, shallow and, Dan is forced to admit, very attractive—and it’s quite clear that his idea of ‘protection’ includes sex. But Dan quickly realizes that something strange is going on: he’s being used as a shield for a much more sinister operation, and is forced to choose between the easy money and sex that his new job offers him, and living up to the ideals of service and duty that he embodied in the Marines.

Why should he do the right thing—particularly when the army betrayed him? Dan finds himself playing a dangerous double game which will take all his combat skill and military training to survive. The Hardest Thing is a sexy gay mystery as only James Lear can write it: filled with lots of sexual encounters, romance, sweat, violence and conspiracy.

Wyatt: Doc Holliday's Account of an Intimate Friendship by Dale ChaseWyatt: Doc Holliday's Account of an Intimate Friendship by Dale Chase
Bold Strokes Books, 2012; ISBN-10: 1936833034

Doc Holliday's Account of an Intimate Friendship (Bold Strokes Books, 2012) is billed as an erotic novel rather than a romance, but readers will find this fascinating historical Western by m/m writer Dale Chase amply satisfies both needs. I have classified the book as a folk tale simply because the story has become larger than life thanks to its silver screen versions. I dare say Chase's treatment is much more historically rigorous than those, even with her intriguing assertion of a romantic relationship between Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday. One wonders where that relationship falls in the author's disclaimer that she has "adhered to historical accuracy where it suits the story and loosened the reins where it does not."

Chase opens with the image of death as "le petit mortis"—

"Gunplay gets a man's blood up. A fellow goes for his revolver, meaning to do me harm, and as I dispatch him, everything in me stands at attention. By the time his life runs out, my blood rushes to such an extent that my dick is hard."

—and death haunts the story throughout as we know from page one that Doc is dying of tuberculosis. Yet the story moves too fast to ever be morbid. There is plenty of the type of action that will leave lovers of Westerns drooling. Chase's language is blunt and unsentimental and the couplings between the sexually adventurous Doc and the upright and married Marshal Earp have the stark urgency of men who need to shoot first and ask questions later. Doc's persistent cough adds a tragic poignancy to their relationship, but Chase works by understatement and she packs more pathos into a four line epilogue than some writers do in entire novels.

It's hard to believe that this confident and entertaining book is Chase's debut novel. I will be looking for more by Chase at —Dick Smart, Lambda Literary

Bold Strokes Books, January 2013

Magicians are undeniably sexy—strong, sensuous, masterful, and magical. Who wouldn’t want to succumb to one? Be levitated? Be sawed in half?

Imagine being called from the audience by a dark man in a dark suit, his cape swirling like a scarlet-lined dream, wrapping his strong arms around you while binding your wrists, his heady cologne enticing and arousing you in front of a theater full of people as he leans in close and whispers some last-minute instruction. Or invitation. He holds out a box carved with ancient symbols and asks you to put your hands inside. What you feel is soft at first, but grows harder. Then, it vanishes. Was it real? Illusion? All you know is that you want to reach inside again. And again.

Well, here’s your next chance—fifteen of them, to be exact—to grab the object of your desire. But hold on fast or it might disappear….

Torquere Press; ISBN-10: 1603704353

Marcus knows Jim is his minutes after meeting the snarly, jumpy ex-professor at the local bookstore. He thinks Jim is a natural submissive, someone who needs order and discipline in his life to help with Jim's anxiety and bad health habits. So Marcus decides to pursue Jim relentlessly, because even if Jim's mouth is saying no, his body is saying yes.

There's a lot more to Jim than meets the eye, and Marcus will have to be careful. Jim knows what it means to lose everything, knows what it's like to be without friends or family. Jim feels broken, and knowing that he likes the kinds of weird things Marcus wants to do to him only makes him scared that he's losing his mind.

Their chemistry is so real, so genuine, that Jim lets Marcus wear him down, lets Marcus take control. Eventually, his trust grows, allowing them to enter into the BDSM lifestyle together, learning about each other every day, with every scene. Jim is still uncertain sometimes, though, and he thinks Marcus might just want him because he's cracked. Can this top and bottom pair find a way to understand their wants and needs, and make a life that works for them alone?
