At a Glance: The continuation of a great tale.
Reviewed By: Carrie
Blurb: Toby and Damon’s whirlwind romance continues, but can they find a balance between love and work? Do they even want to?
Toby can scarcely believe that his life has changed so much in less than two weeks, but it has. His predictable little life has gone from routine to sexually adventurous in a matter of days. And to be honest, he wouldn’t have it any other way.
Damon’s just as into Toby, more interested in exploring with his new lover than spending all his time at the bar. Luckily things are running fairly smoothly there with his hand only occasionally needed on the rudder.
Their idyllic love affair has a few bumps to withstand, though, in the form of an intruder with a gun. Can Toby and Damon survive what happens next?
Review: Milling is book two in Sean Michael’s Beer and Clay series. The tale begins in book one, Malting, where bar owner Damon finally confronts the shy guy who has been coming to his bar every Thursday for the last three years. In book one, we get the connection and spark of new romance between Damon and Toby (oh, and really great, hot sex!). In book two, the relationship grows as the two men really start to explore what they mean to each other, and developing another layer of intimacy with the Dom/sub relationship they both crave (oh, and did I mention more really great hot sex?!). Toby is a treasure – so unsure of himself but so talented, and Damon is the perfect Dom for him – putting Toby first and truly taking care of the man.
The angst in this book comes from an outside source, not our main characters, in that someone is after Damon, and Toby is in the way. The police are no help, and Toby is sure that whoever broke into the bar and then Damon’s apartment – where he gets shot – is being motivated by jealousy of his and Damon’s incredible relationship. So what happens next? Hopefully more really great hot sex! Oh, and more of a story that is definitely worth your time reading! What more can I say? It’s Sean Michel, so you know there are great characters and a solid story. I will warn you though that this book is a continuation of the first book and leaves you hoping for the third. But if you want a snippet of these men’s lives, it’s just right – oh, and did I mention the great sex?
