Toby and Damon’s whirlwind romance continues, but can they find a balance between love and work? Do they even want to?

Toby can scarcely believe that his life has changed so much in less than two weeks, but it has. His predictable little life has gone from routine to sexually adventurous in a matter of days. And to be honest, he wouldn’t have it any other way.

Damon’s just as into Toby, more interested in exploring with his new lover than spending all his time at the bar. Luckily things are running fairly smoothly there with his hand only occasionally needed on the rudder.

Their idyllic love affair has a few bumps to withstand, though, in the form of an intruder with a gun. Can Toby and Damon survive what happens next?

Toby and Damon have only been together for a few weeks, but both men have become totally caught up in the whirlwind of their romance. They’re thoroughly in love and wouldn’t have it any other way. After dealing with their own lives for a few days – Damon with his bar and Toby with his sculpting –  Damon in particular is itching for some special time with Toby, and Toby isn’t going to complain at all. When Damon finally sits for Toby, posing for his lover to sculpt him, the fire explodes between them and both know things will never be the same again.

This is a smoking hot book. While it is the sequel to Malting, it’s not necessary to have read that to enjoy Milling. Toby and Damon burn these pages up and I found myself entranced from the beginning. I really loved watching how their relationship grows and expands. Toby is fairly new to everything, both in a D/s relationship and Damon being his first real partner as well. I thought this freshness brought a sense of wonder and adventure to the experience.

While much of the sex is kinky, the love these two men share fills everything. It was a pleasure to read about Toby and Damon further exploring each other and the boundaries of their blossoming relationship. I also really enjoyed how we learn more about each man’s world. I was shown deeper into Toby and his sculpting, and Damon with his pub. Two very intriguing new characters were introduced (I’d love a book about Peter and Christian, please!) and all this added depth and layers to both Toby and Damon. It made me feel like their world, their relationship and their lives were more realistic. There is absolutely nothing wrong with endlessly hot, smoking sex, but the extra depth outside the bedroom made me enjoy Toby and Damon even more. I’ve really grown to love both the characters and the world they inhabit and know I’ll be rereading both these books many times in the future.

There is a small sub-plot, lightly linking Malting with this book and I feel (hope!) the author has left the door open for another book to come. I’m very curious to see how this will turn out and am eagerly anticipating more. This is an awesome story I feel many erotica readers will enjoy. Full of fun, smoking hot sex and awesome characters it’s totally a winner. Recommended.
