Summary Review: Take a walk on the wild side with two of my favourite Sean Michael characters.
Dillon and Dal from Secrets, Skin and Leather are back for this smoking hot short. Dillon’s attending a dreadfully dull cocktail party when their host introduces him to dour, no nonsense businessman Scott Daly. However, Dillon needs no introduction, for he knows, and shares, Scott Daly’s secret.
The evening is suddenly looking much brighter, if only the two men can escape the soiree and keep their secret intact.
This very short sequel is almost as hot as Secrets, Skin and Leather reviewed here and it features Sean Michael’s trademark of well drawn characters who can’t stay away from each other, in and out of bed.
Dillon Walsh was being wined and dined at the After Hours Club by Tad Bremmer, President of Actel, who was desperate for investors to shore up his failing company. Dillon was bored until he spied Scott Daly, one of the best brokers in the business, who looked like the typical prim and proper, buttoned down, forgettable businessman, but Dillon knew what Scott looked like under that unappetising, dull, dark, lifeless suit – an amazing body that just wouldn’t quit.
It was several weeks since lovers Dillon and Scott last met and they pretended that they were merely acquaintances because of the type of function they were attending, but when Dillon showed up at Scott’s hotel room later that evening all bets and clothes were off. Dillon was addicted to Dal, as he was known on the fetish scene, and their games were no holds barred. Their toys of choice this time were nipple clamps, plugs and cock rings and of course Dal’s latest in his favourite choice in underwear, a white corset which was so tight it hugged his body like a second skin. The sex was incredible and as always their games were high intensity, but Dillon’s favourite toy was Dal’s body which he used as his playground. This was a great start to a whole weekend together with room service and their toy box.
Sean Michael’s characterizations always fascinate me before I get to the ever present sex in his books, and Dal and Dillon are two of my favourite protagonists because they are major players in the world of multi million dollar investment in troubled companies and selling them off at a significant profit, but in private their sex is kink and fetish. This author’s prose is some of the best and it sucks me in to his stories and keeps me there until the end.
If you only enjoy M/M books with vanilla sex, Secret Skin and its precursor will not be of interest to you because this author pushes the sexual envelope. For those of you who are more adventurous, I would highly recommend both books for a little walk on the wild side. My only complaint is that this book is way too short – I would have loved to spend more time with Dillon and Dal.
Secret Skin is not a standalone story and you have to read Secrets, Skin and Leather first before you crack open this little gem. Secret Skin was first released in 2007.
