Summary: Matt and Adam from Sold, a Hammer novel, are back once again at the Briar Rose, their BDSM B&B. This time their guests are lovers and Dom/sub pair Gaston and Parker who need their help reaching a goal.
A committed pair in the BDSM lifestyle, Gaston and Parker have been together for six years. Parker works hard to be the best sub he can be, to be worthy of Gaston, but try as he has, he can’t come on command without a touch to his cock and he knows it’s totally his fault.
Booking a week at the Briar Rose, Gaston is hoping that between a week away from home with no other distractions, and help from Matt and Adam, he and Parker will be able to achieve their goal – together.
Will Gaston be able to overcome Parker’s insecurities or will they have to let this particular aspect of their play go?
Review: Controlling Parker is the second book in The Briar Rose series by Sean Michael. While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. The characters from Sold by Sean Michael are back and better than ever. I enjoyed this first book in the series so when I heard about this book I was excited. I read this book in one sitting.
Matt and Adam are having a great time running their B&B that offers not just a place to stay but also advice and support. They are a great couple and I loved that they work very well together running it. Each of them taking charge of areas that they do best in the B&B. What also helps make the B&B a success is that there is not just a Dom’s perspective but a Sub’s as well.
Gaston and Parker are the latest guests to arrive at the B&B. Gaston wants Parker to orgasm without being touched so he turns to Matt and Adam for help. Parker is filled with insecurities. He does not think he is good enough for is Master, Gaston. Gaston wants not just to achieve his goal but also calm Parker in the process and just maybe deepen their relationship on the way.
My only wish about this book is that I wish that it was longer. The ending of this story was very abrupt. The main and secondary characters were interesting and realistic. Overall, this was a good story. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
