Will new revelations about Hunter’s desires rekindle the romance with Kyle or put an end to things?

Committed couple Hunter and Kyle have been together a long time. They love each other very much, but they’re apart a lot, and there are very few surprises left in the bedroom anymore. Or are there?

When business trips lead Hunter to some eye-opening time on the internet, he discovers a side to himself that he never knew existed. The kinky things he learns make him want Kyle all the more, make him want to go home and play all sorts of naughty games. He feels compelled to tell Kyle about it, even if he’s embarrassed, wanting to be honest. Will their relationship survive his revelation? Or will Kyle be disgusted by this new side of him?

Hunter is madly in love with his partner, Kyle. Hunter works interstate a fair bit, but the money is worth it and coming home to Kyle is always fantastic. While away, Hunter is cruising the internet for some porn and happens upon a message board. It comes as a shock to him to discover he’s intrigued by a bit of kink with his sex. Kyle and Hunter had never gone down that road together, but the more he looks into it, the more Hunter realizes it’s something he really wants to try. But how can he raise this with Kyle?

I really enjoyed this story, it felt realistic to me. Hunter didn’t just stumble onto some D/s porn and instantly, BAM, find himself a slutty little submissive man. He was still strong and himself, just curious and reluctantly so. I loved how even though Hunter had some serious nerves his attraction and curiosity overcame those. And Hunter didn’t just jump in with both feet, he felt his way along slowly. It really struck me how this could happen just like it’s described – and that made the storyline more powerful for me. There was a twist mid way through that I saw coming, but it made the story really interesting and so I rolled really easily with it.

Hunter and Kyle are both completely in love, and this shines through in Mr Michael’s writing so clearly. There is real emotion and chemistry between them. Sure, they might have been together long enough that things have become routine, but kink and Hunter’s curiosity very quickly sets the flames burning hotly once again. I love how they’re both re-discovering each other, but still very deeply in love.

I found this to be an amazing story, full of sensual scenes and hotly written kink. Both Hunter and Kyle grow and learn as characters and their relationship flourishes accordingly. This is yet another wonderful story by Mr. Michael and he’s now an auto-read for me. Hot and romantic, this is an excellent read and one I’m really pleased to add onto my bookshelf.
