Length: 73 pages
Blurb: Massage therapist Erik Morgan offers a very special after-hours service to a handful of select clients. From a young man anxious to explore his sexuality, to a stroke patient who fears he’ll never be a man again, Erik touches them all. But no one touches him. Not anymore.
Faced with a personal tragedy, Erik loses himself in helping others. Until one brave client turns the tables and gets under his skin, and Erik finds himself touched in unexpected ways.
Warning! This gay erotic romance novella is intended for an adult audience. It contains explicit scenes of erotic massage and m/m sex.
Review: This novella is a delight. I was pulled into Erik’s world and found myself breathing along with him.
It opens very sensually. Massage is a sensual art. And when done with the dedication and compassion that Erik shows to his special clients it becomes a beautiful, erotic and often healing experience. We only get to meet a couple of his special clients, but each one showed a side of Erik that was compelling.
There is much more to Erik’s story than we at first expect. We discover the complex and painful motivations of his special services. We begin to see a man in midlife, strong, caring, dedicated to helping people, suffering silently. I loved Erik. I felt his pain and his love.
When Erik meets someone who sees beyond the facade that Erik lives behind I couldn’t help but get excited for him. Hope that maybe, even if it was just for a moment, or as a distraction, Erik had someone who was focused on him.
Chris Scully excels at the short story. In a few pages this author will pull you in and have you turned on, engaged fully with the characters and hoping for a resolution that if not HEA is at least a very satisfying HFN.
