Welcome to Shady Business, the hottest gay BDSM club in town. Owned by Grey Shade, it's the place you want to be if you're into leather, whips, crops, and hot and steamy sex.
Each story in this anthology takes the reader inside the club for a steamy, hot night filled with passion, sex, and leather. From love stories that pluck at the heartstrings with riding crops to subs masquerading as Doms, from virginal first-time forays into the scene, to tales of experienced members in the leather community, there's something for every reader here. Top or bottom, Dom or sub, every need is met, every desire filled.
At Shady Business, no good deed ever goes unpunished.
This collection of short BDSM stories centers around a club called Shady Business and it's owner Grey plays at least a small part in each story. Be it an introduction, instruction or a push in the right direction you will never forget that it's his club and he is the Dom.
The stories included range from sweet to hard core, from first timers to experienced lifers, from new to long standing relationships. This anthology really runs the gambit of the lifestyle and intensity level. With the tongue in cheek (pun most def intended) title and lead character name you shouldn't be surprised to find that there is humor in the book along with some scorching sex.
Aside from Grey being a recurring character each story is a stand alone and they can be read out of order and context. As with most anthologies there were some stories I enjoyed more that others and I felt that the book was very well rounded and well edited. I found some new to me authors that I will probably be searching to find other books by them and that to me is the sign of a good anthology.
RATING: 4 Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries This book was given to us by Torquere Press. Many thanks.
