Sometimes it’s the cop who needs to hit the floor… As a homicide cop, every blood-soaked crime scene settled in my bones and snaked around my spine. There was only one way to exorcise the images from my soul …
Inside the club, I stopped to scan the room. He was here, Camden Snow. A Norse sex god in the guise of unpretentious youth. Only his ice-blue eyes gave evidence of the Dom who took whomever he wished, whatever way he wanted, with a look and a nod. Merciless.

Cam found me watching him and fixed me with his arctic gaze. This time, I didn’t walk away. He cocked an eyebrow. Well?

The last thing I needed was mercy.

I dropped to my knees.

An intriguing and enjoyable story, although I felt the ending was rather rushed after the detailed account of the time in the playroom.

An unusual pairing, in that the Dom is only twenty-one and the cop, although an experienced sub, is an anal virgin. A ‘bad day at work’ for Hunter triggers their first time together at the BDSM club. Hunter has to accept that no safewords are available and he must submit completely to Cam’s wishes, whatever they might be.

The writing is engaging and the scenes and emotions are well portrayed. Being only 13K words the story is compact, with only a brief reference to the characters’ backstories, and read like an extended vignette.

Lily G. Blunt writes contemporary gay romance. She loves to explore the relationship between two men and the intensity of their physical and emotional attraction. Angst often features in her stories as she feels this demonstrates the depth of the men’s feelings for each other. Lily is forever writing imaginary scenes and plots in her head, but only a few ever make it to the page. There never seems to be enough hours in the day despite having left the teaching profession to concentrate on her writing!

Lily discovered the wonderful world of m/m romance novels five years ago via fan fiction and went on to write stories in her spare time. With the encouragement of her friends and readers she decided to publish some of her work. Lily subsequently self-published several stories via Amazon and later published short stories with Torquere Press, Wayward Ink Publishing, and Pride Publishing.
