    3.5 stars I ve learned something about life from this bookA spanking solves everything.Feeling depressed Spank it out Feeling like having a coffee You need spanking Feeling sad Spanking time Feeling happy SPANK Feeling horny Spank, spank, spank.My three stars here is misleading I actually really liked this book, even loved it at times However, it also was riddled with problems, which knocked down my rating a bit When this book started, I was kind of horrified Poor Jim seemed so bullied that it made me uncomfortable That first spanking and that first trip to the tattoo parlor I m still recovering from them It felt non con or dub con, which I am NOT into I actually didn t love any of the tattoo scenes, only because I feel like body art is something you have to really, really want However, as the book went along, I was completely sucked into the story This book really doesn t have a plot There is no arc It is like a 500 page journal of the relationship between Jim and Marcus But maybe because I read a string of YA or clean romances before this book, but the massive amount of sex scenes were highly, HIGHLY entertaining And there were a lot of them I didn t mind the whole set up of their relationship, which was kind of a marriage of domestic discipline and traditional BDSM I understood the dynamic and I thought it worked beautifully for them This book was also surprisingly sweet This isn t a grumpy, emotionally distant dom Marcus is the most sappy, effusive dom that I have ever encountered This book is FILLED with affection It is like a big BDSM marshmallow So what are my issues here Well, let s start with the pet names Now, I happen to love the pet name baby , mostly because it is what I call my husband However, even I was a little babied out by the end Guess how many times baby is used in this book You ll never guess open to find out view spoiler 1,139 times hide spoiler

    Dear god, this was awful.This is the story of an ill defined TPE total power exchange , and it s done poorly.For example, there is one scene in which the bottom Jim is telling the top Marcus he does not want to be flogged Marcus just steamrolls right over Jim, informing Jim that he knows what Jim really needs Now, Jim is struggling, crying, making it very clear it is NOT something he wants, yet the author writes it so that Marcus knows better, forcing Jim through it, and when, in the end Jim comes, it s all fine and hunky dorey.No That is abuse, plain and simple, and I don t like reading about abuse marketed as BDSM.The only positive thing I can say about is that there were very few grammatical or spelling errors, though the narrative was choppy and dumb I ve never seen a narrative like this, where the whole book is like a stream of consciousness It s annoying, distracting, and unsatisfying.It was pages and pages of sex sex forced sex sex breaking of trust of boundaries sex sex and pointless sex.I found the book insulting, difficult to get through, and completely unsatisfying as money spent.

    Jim has a system, a routine Every other day, he visits the bookstore to buy the latest books After that he visits the coffee shop where he has a triple espresso and half of a muffin while he reads his mail and gets rid of all his hate mail Two years ago he was wrongly accused that he tried to rape one of his female students at the university This forced him to come out of the closet and to admit that he has a boyfriend, but it did not help his case He was still fired and unfortunately he is still receiving hate mail by people he doesn t know accusing him for something he hasn t done.After his morning routine ends, Jim goes back home alone his boyfriend abandoned him after the scandal and the next day he will have the other half of his muffin for breakfast while he stays in.One of these mornings at the bookstore, he catches the eye of Marcus, a Dom and a regular at the local BDSM club Hammer This is love at first sight Marcus is going to pursue Jim and soon after Jim will move to Marcus house and he will start his training to become his sub Jim is clueless about this lifestyle He likes his routine, his coffee, his psychologist, his pills and his peace and quiet He doesn t even like sex any This will not stop the unstoppable Marcus And he will be so incredibly pushy to say the least Before Jim realizes what is going on, he will have a tattoo on his back and a nipple ring And the tattoos and the piercing will not stop there.The story was okay, not bad actually But I became a bit repetitive after a while It seems that the answer to everything was a good old spanking or paddling or flogging Every time Jim is facing an emotional breakdown, or he feels sad or he has panic attacks or he needs a coffee, Marcus is suggesting that Jim should be spread on his lap on the bench And of course Marcus never stops pushing the limits of Jim.Anyway I think the book would have been better if it had half pages and a bit progress in the story After a while I was just counting the tattoos and the piercings And I was making bets with myself of how many of them the previously shy, uncertain professor will have The book makes a turn towards the end and becomes very emotional Jim starts talking about his secrets and the pain inside and the cruelty that the others and his parents show to him I could almost hear my own heart cracking and breaking Deeply emotional times are the only times in fact that Jim uses his safeword to avoid answering painful questions.In the end of the book, the two lovers will feel content, comfortable with each other, happy and they will have their happily ever after I wouldn t ask for anything else.BUT I have to admit that I am a bit gutted, because the people who have hurt Jim are not punished somehow I do not believe that Sometimes you can be right and still lose everything I believe in retribution and justice.So, if you like stories which take the main character out of his comfort zone and he enjoys it , this book is for you.

    I really enjoy the way Sean Michael writes There is emotion, tenderness, caring and lots of hot sex Jim is an uptight and angry man due to some very unfortunate things that have happened in his life When he walks into the bookstore, he is pissed off, and takes his anger out on the young manager There happens to be a very large, very attractive man there that witnesses his behavior and really tells him where to go Marcus is in the bookstore when Jim comes in all snarly and mad He wants to take Jim over his knee and spank him until he learns some manners Marcus thinks Jim needs order and control in his life than anyone He decides to pursue Jim and teach him a little bit about the D s lifestyle Jim wants nothing to do with Marcus at first, but before long the two of them are beginning a very intense emotional and physical relationship Jim soon begins to blossom He gets productive, less angry and has control over his emotions Jim feels like there must be something wrong with him if he enjoys this lifestyle so much, even with all of his forward progress On top of that, he and Marcus are falling in love Can the two of them make it work, even with all of the issues Jim has This book is great if you enjoy D s themes The story is engaging even though the book is long I loved seeing Jim become a stronger self sufficient person Marcus is a wonderful Dom He listens to Jim and is very aware of his limitations Marcus takes things slow, and yet pushes Jim s boundaries whenever possible There is tons of smokin hot sex, as well as talk of some piercings and tattoos I really enjoyed this love story xo

    DNF The writing is not good The dialogue is unnatural and the narrative just odd For example, Marcus gives Jim some eggs to whisk and Jim nodded, stirring and whistling softly, the sound maddening What is maddening about whisking eggs Was the whistling maddening Maddening in a hot and horny way, in a nails on a chalkboard way There was a fair amount of head hopping and POV changes The power exchange felt very, very wrong Several spankings into the book and still no safe word, Marcus just knew Jim needed to be spanked even though all they had had was a quick exchange in a bookstore and a cup of coffee The first spanking happened without prior discussion or consent There are a few spankings, Jim screaming and protesting the whole time, and then Marcus is telling Jim what he is allowed to eat and telling him he should move in with him The sex seemed repetitive, and Marcus just never stopped spanking Jim All the time Here a spank, there a spank, everywhere a spank spank Spanks seemed to be both punishment and reward, and at times Marcus seemed to end every sentence with a spank Supposedly Jim had never been involved in anything BDSM prior to meeting Marcus in the bookshop a few days ago, but after one night together there is talk of moving in, schedules, chores, diet change, and getting tattoos and piercings I had to stop when Marcus talked Jim into the tattoo that he didn t want after their first night This can t even qualify as PWP since the author did seem to try to have a plot, and the sex scenes were dull Also, Jim stammers a lot when he is nervous and protesting, and the author wrote that using periods instead of dashes or ellipses which was confusing and jolted the reader from the story.

    Quotes When Jim looked at himself seeing the bruises left by his first flogging, he said That s not normal.Marcus answered Oh, baby This is so much better than normal There s no need to be ashamed A man who can embrace his needs, who knows himself and accepts those needs is nothing to be ashamed of Baby You re supposed to wake me if it s before 7 Remember said Marcus But you were sleeping, answered Jim Hence the Waking me part, said Marcus lolllll Prologue I wrote in my previous review for Don t that I have enough of authors imagining Doms or subs who always had a past of abuses, or were harmed, or were destabilized by a lot of bad things they lived, or are crackpots I d like that someday authors write good BDSM stories with perfectly sane characters I am sorry to say that it is not in this book that I found what I am looking for, given that Jim has a family that hates him and has lived a very bad experience shortly before his meeting with Marcus.REVIEW This book is classic Sean Michael material, meaning it s heavy on sex and light on plot The fact that Jim is harassed by friends of the student who falsely accused him of rape could have given an interesting intrigue, but the author did not exploit this event It left loose ends In fact, there was very little outside conflict all the conflict came from within Jim, the sub who does not know he is a sub, and his difficulty reconciling his needs with his beliefs The focus of this novel is Marcus attempts to help Jim overcome his emotional problems, accept who he is, and deal with the complications he faces in life I always find the inner experience in BDSM books much interesting that the outer one So I cannot complain about this A lover knows only humility, he has no choice He steals into your alley at night, he has no choice. He longs to kiss every lock of your hair, don t fret, he has no choice. Excerpt from a love poem of Rumi.But there is much better manners to approach somebody than to stalk and kidnap him her, particularly somebody who lived recently a disturbing experience and could be very worried of being followed this way This is the combination of the way Marcus accosted Jim and of Jim s vulnerability that made this story questionable at the beginning If Jim had been self confident, the behavior of Marcus would have seemed less improper Given Jim s issues, I would have preferred that Marcus seduces him and gets to know him better rather than to drag him to his place the day they met and to force him to move into his home a few days later.We cannot say that Michael s Doms do nothing but frown and use their whips But they tend to be right and always know what s best for the sub That is not very realistic Marcus is no exception, although in one instance he says something that angers Jim enough to make him safeword and be truly angry I liked this moment because it humanizes Marcus and doesn t make him out to be a strong, perfect being who can do nothing wrong.I didn t feel I knew Marcus and I wish there was of a description and perhaps background Even so, contrarily to other reviewers, I liked his pushiness I think that the job of a Dom is to make his sub go forward beyond his limits, and improve himself in everything.John Preston wrote in In Search of a Master I wanted to live a life where the most outrageous fantasies and the most frightening nightmares merged with reality so much I couldn t distinguish any borders To leave all this at the level of just being a sexual toy for two unimaginative athletes was too little I didn t want to settle for good sex I wanted a magician Preston could be considered as a precursor of the BDSM community He is dead now, but he was an inspiration for so many people that it would be hard to encompass and surpass his success But there were many reasons for that success He was not looking for only kinky sex and he was not afraid to overcome his barriers and cross his borders He wanted to live intensely One of the GR reviewers wrote that subs who are of sound mind will run away when Doms say that they want to push their subs limits On the contrary, they are the ones we should look for They are those that Preston described as magicians So I loved Marcus pushy side Maybe the first tattoo came a little too fast, but I like BDSM scenes in general, so I do not complain because there were many There are many spankings, four piercings just one fully described , two floggings, one whipping with the riding crop, many tattoos but only two fully described , one fisting and one sounding.About sex I could do this forever , Marcus said, speaking of fucking with Jim Given the considerable amount of pages certainly over 45% of the book full of sex scenes, I believe him completely At two thirds of the story, Marcus said to Jim that they have not yet done it against the shower wall I m really surprised given the number of fucks they had until then Sometimes, there are 3 sex scenes one after the other Many times, I thought Yeah Finally, they re finished, and then they went on again and again all these sex scenes described in too much detail.At the beginning, I find the sex scenes interesting because everything was so new to Jim and the sex scenes showed the chemistry between the 2 MCs in bed at least But there is an overload of sex scenes and they became fast repetitive What I do not understand is why the author does not realize it too It seems that for the author, fucking is a panacea capable of curing all psychological ailments and even many physical ones But, is he she forced to give so many details when describing the billionth sex scenes He She could describe them in detail the first times and then tells us just what is special in the other numerous sex scenes instead of explaining that Marcus puts a finger here and another there, and Jim does this and that with his tongue, and they kisses here and there, Marcus nibbles this and that, and on and on again and again That s too much That becomes so very dull that I had to skip most of them.Mr Ms Michael, you won t lose your readers if you cut some parts of the sex scenes, I assure you Do you do it for the money I mean, do you stuff your books with so many sex scenes because the your books have pages, the you could ask for them Don t you know that if your books were cheaper, you could sell of them and get new readers too Since there is over 25% of the story that is about trivial things like eating, sleeping, cooking and shopping if you add it to the sex scenes, that does not leave a lot of pages for a plot or really important events Personally, I am not sure I will read your books again, mainly because at least 45% of all yours books are sex scenes and the rhythm of the rest is too slow.About the writing itself There are many punctuation errors and a few spelling mistakes That should have been easily corrected if the book had been proofread and better edited.Suggestion Sean Michael should write in collaboration with Jack L Pyke Jack could teach Sean how to put a little suspense in his her writing and maybe succeed to persuade him her to stop repeating constantly mine , yours , mine , yours , so sexy and so pretty Meanwhile, Jack could learn about real compassion between Dom and sub Probably, their common books would be interesting than their separate works They d complement and compensate for the shortcomings of each other.I thought I d give just 3 stars to this novel because of the overload of sex, all the other kinds of repetition yours, mine, mine, yours, etc and because of the dub con at the beginning of the story but then I remembered that the focus of this book is on making one human being become better and happier, and I decided that just this deserved one star So, I give it 4 stars.

    I read this a few eons ago and can t remember the details very well, but I want to explain why I gave it only two stars.Reading this book felt like venturing into the dark side of fanfiction and by dark side I mean the huge area of simplistic and badly written porn with some random splatters of gooey feels that serves as a background for the kind of fanfiction I read You know, the brilliant kind g So, yes, I know that Sean Michael is lik the god of M M BDSM or so I understood, in the early stages of my M M addiction , but don t touch this.

    DNF at 48%.Okay I ll start with the positive since this started out as a positive read I LOOOOVE stories with brats and Tops who sweep in and manage their messy lives Love It s my hmmmmmm thing.This story featured such, thus I was completely on board I was afloat with this book despite the typos, amateur writing, and stiff dialogue I was thoroughly enjoying the premise, the plot, the point of the work But I began to sink under an extreeeeeemely repetitive proliferation of sex I was sore from reading all that sex Seriously, it was 24 7 After a bit, there was no relationship, very very little disciplining, hardly any conversation, and no plot This is a shame because the first half of the book sets up some really interesting storylines that I wanted to read about, for example the rape accuser But I just, I couldn t I couldn t wade through any sex Don t make me.

    3.5 starsThis first book in Sean Michael s Hammer series features Marcus, a leather worker heavily involved in the BDSM lifestyle and Jim, a former professor who s been through some bad times and is having problems dealing with his life When they meet for the first time in a bookstore Marcus is both appalled at Jim s rudeness and also instantly drawn to him Marcus is sure Jim is a natural submissive and he d love to take him home and spank the rudeness right out of him Some people might think Marcus was crazy Jim had been pretty clear that he wasn t interested But Marcus listened to than just what people said with their mouths Jim needed someone in his life to take charge Marcus knew it like he knew how to breathe he just did He d learned to trust his gut implicitly.Jim has never been into the lifestyle and in fact knows very little about it His view of life is that a real man is always in control and he is shocked at the things Marcus tells him Jim is sure that s not for him but once he starts letting Marcus into his life he will have a difficult time reconciling that view with the submissiveness that Marcus starts to bring out in him.

    2.5 StarsI thought this book was never going to end There were some things I liked about it and some that I didn t Apart from the length, I believe some parts of the book were very similar, with repetitive scenes and dialogue that often I had to check the page number to ensure I wasn t reading the same pages Normally, I want my BDSM books to be a little compact Also, the lack of plot got unnerving after 50% view spoiler The piercing and tattooing parts felt suffocating hide spoiler
