What are the chances? Bisexual dom Sandy meets Rem in his local horse-and-tack store while shopping for a quirt. He’s instantly taken by Rem’s shocking good looks and the way he struts around in an old Western-style shirt. “A preening peacock” Sandy calls him, before announcing, in the hottest of ways, what narcissists like Rem deserve.
Sandy brings Rem home to Vanessa (Those Girls) where all three enjoy intensely erotic BDSM sex, with Sandy pushing everyone’s boundaries in ways they want and he knows they need.
But Rem proves to be a mystery that even Sandy can’t quite crack. What does the boy really desire? And if it isn’t Sandy and Vanessa, what will the consequences be?
I bet you can’t guess what this book is really like by looking at the cover. Even if you know Alison Tyler’s style, this book is a complete surprise. If you have read the novella (or my review) of Those Girls, which featured the some of the same characters, you might be close. Those Boys is a novella about Sandy. Sandy is hardened and shopworn. He is the Dom I always dreamed of. Rem is an arrogant peacock. Rem, the sexy musician who could have any girl, but that is not what he needs. Sandy snags Rem’s attention and devotion with a simple comment.
On preening peacocks. I can’t help but love them. The boys who lower their lashes at their own reflections. The narcissists. I have a big thing for the demigods who put themselves on marble pedestals.
I can’t help myself.
I want to take them down.
Sandy of Those Boys (and Those Girls) has become my favorite character. A dominant who knows exactly how to take them down, make them beg for more. Peacocks. Those Boys is about control, and submission. It is about desire and letting go. Sandy dominates so easily, he lets Rem get right where he needs him to be. The three characters in this story have more depth then most full length novels. This novella is flawed in only one way. It is too short.
I have only had Those Boys in my hot little hands for a few weeks, and already I have memorized some of it. I read a hell of a lot, like more than is needed or normal. I have too many stories in my head. This one is the best I have read all year, no shit. Most books don’t come close to making me feel for a character what I feel for Sandy.
Its kinda like this:
Admittedly, I am a big fan of Alison’s books. I have yet to read one that didn’t hit one of my nerves. This one, though. If you ever wanted to get a taste of what Alison’s books are like, get Those Boys. It is not about gay erotica, it is not cheesy googly gooby romance. This is attraction that goes beyond gender or orientation. This is gritty, dark, erotica that cuts to chase.
I will set you free, but I won’t let you go.
An obsession to be possessed. I don’t want to spoil this read for you. Saying more might be too much. I fucking loved this story. It is an erotic page turner. I finished it in one sitting. This is one short read you should add to your list and make a priority.
About the Author
ALISON TYLER draws on twenty-five years of penning sultry stories to create a scorchingly hot work of fiction in Those Boys. Called “a trollop with a laptop” by East Bay Express, “a literary siren” by Good Vibrations and “the mistress of literary erotica” by Violet Blue, Alison Tyler is naughty and she knows it. She has written twenty-five explicit novels including Banging Rebecca, Dark Secret Love, Wrapped Around Your Finger (soon to be released), and has edited about 50 collections. Her stories appear in over 100 anthologies. Her novels and short stories have been translated into Japanese, Dutch, German, Italian, Norwegian, Spanish and Greek.
Ms. Tyler is loyal to coffee (black), lipstick (red), and tequila (straight). She has tattoos, but no piercings; a wicked tongue, but a quick smile; and bittersweet memories, but no regrets. She believes it won’t rain if she doesn’t bring an umbrella, prefers hot and dry to cold and wet, and loves to spout her favorite motto: You can sleep when you’re dead. She chooses Led Zeppelin over the Beatles, the Cure over NIN, and the Stones over everyone. Yet although she appreciates good rock, she has a pitiful weakness for 80s hair bands.
In all things important, she remains faithful to her partner of seventeen years, but she still can’t choose just one perfume. Alison Tyler really knows kink. I highly recommend this ebook, and almost everything this Alison Tyler touches, wholeheartedly.
Thanks to Go Deeper Press for sending me this ebook for review.
