It’s been two years since Neil’s Master Chris passed away unexpectedly and he’s ready for someone to touch him again. More than ready. The problem is that everyone is respectfully keeping their distance. Participating in the annual charity Hammer Auction seems like the perfect opportunity to announce his readiness, and to get some of the touches he craves so badly at the same time.

To Neil’s surprise, his best friend and neighbor, Master Dalton makes the winning bid, leaving Neil to wonder if he must continue exist alone and untouched. Master Dalton has a secret, though, one that might change Neil’s life forever.

Neil is on a mission. It’s been nearly two years since his partner was killed in a car crash and Neil needs sex. Badly. So he agrees to set himself up for auction at the local club. Dalton, his best friend and neighbor, pays handsomely for the night, but leaves Neil confused. Neil knows he isn’t Dalton’s type, so what’s going on? Two men, friends first, but both longing to experience the other. Finally one night – one auction – brings all those fantasies to life.

I’m always a total sucker for the plotline of “friends becoming lovers” and this short story totally lives up to every expectation. Neil and Dalton know each other very well, but there’s always things our lovers know that our friends don’t. In one heated night, both men will discover secrets and hidden treats about the other, shocking and surprising each other at every turn. I love how although Dalton is a dominant, and Neil a submissive, neither are into seriously heavy scenes. There’s a tenderness, a sweetness to their coming together that really satisfied the romantic in me.

Intense and sexy, this is a brilliant M/M. Kinky, but not over the top, I think it will appeal to those who like a bit of bite in their erotica. I grew attached to both Neil and Dalton almost from the start, and relished their first sexual encounter. It was hot to read about them breaking through the friend barrier and deeply satisfying. Another excellent short story by Mr. Michael – and highly recommended.
