Marcus is getting ready for a leather convention and Jim is helping his Master take inventory. There's nothing better than the smell of leather and his Master nearby, and Jim is happy as a clam. Happy enough that even Marcus pushing can only bring joy.
This short story packs a punch!
Ever read a story where you thought one thing would happen, but in all reality, something totally else happened--and it was so worth the ride? That's what happened when I opened Taking Inventory by Sean Michael. I know when I pick up a book by Sean Michael I'm in for a hot time. This story was no exception. The heat started early on and didn't let up until the last page. The words flowed well and while I couldn't see exactly what Jim and Marcus looked like, I felt everything they felt.
I'm not sure if they are part of another story, but that didn't matter in this case. Being plunked into their story right where I was worked well. I didn't need a bunch of backstory. I wanted heat and two guys showing how much they cared about each other. That's what I got.
I will say that Sean Michael's work isn't for the faint of heart. If you're new to BDSM, this might not be the one you want to go for. Marcus and Jim have an intense relationship. The things they do, while done out of love, are hot and guaranteed to make the ice in your glass melt. If you like characters that go for the gold in the bedroom and want heat over your lunch break, then this might be the book for you.
