The Gentle Dom by Sean Michael


When one of their own is threatened, the men of the Iron Eagle Gym will stand together and prove they are stronger as a family.

Stuntman Barclay Drambor suspects his fall from a roof was no accident. He believes his abusive ex was responsible, but he can’t prove it. Fortunately, a year has gone by with no word from Duncan, letting Barclay move on with his life—and that means dealing with the aftermath of his injuries. He finds personal trainer Reece “Rec” Gordon through a member of the gym, and it’s not long before their workouts together become much more intimate. Rec is gentle and goes out of his way to make Barclay comfortable, and in no time there’s talk of moving in together…

But just as Barclay is healing and finding a place to belong, Duncan returns to destroy his happiness. Though Duncan will learn he’s messing with the wrong group of men, in the end, Barclay must face him. Will Rec’s love and the friendship of the others at the gym give him the confidence to stand up for himself?

Angie☆☆☆☆
I enjoyed this addition to the series. Rec was so sweet and so careful with Barclay it made my heart melt. In true Sean Michael fashion, there is a lot of sex and a lot of encouragement and praise for Barclay. When Barclay’s ex shows up, the gym members unite and make sure everyone is safe. There were two things that bothered me about this book. One was how things ended up with the ex, I think it wrapped up too easily. Second was that Barclay hadn't achieved his goal by the end of the book. Maybe it will be addressed in the next book?

This is more a story about Barclay "B" finding a place in life now that he has more physical difficulties than it was about love, for me. It was having Rec help him find his center again. After he was unable to work, he didn't really know what was left for him. Rec helped him find a confidence that he lacked when Duncan, his previous partner, liked to abuse him.

There was a lot of connecting in this story between Rec and B, however, I felt that it was more of a friendship or friends with benefits than a true relationship. While it started professionally, it quickly digressed to them having a physical relationship.

I thought that the characters could have used a little more development and I wish that more of the crew from previous books had been included. Overall, there was more power exchange and less relationship interaction.

Often referred to as “Space Cowboy” and “Gangsta of Love” while still striving for the moniker of “Maurice,” Sean Michael spends his days surfing, smutting, organizing his immense gourd collection, and fantasizing about one day retiring on a small secluded island peopled entirely by horseshoe crabs.

While collecting vast numbers of vintage gay pulp novels and mood rings, Sean whiles away the hours between dropping the F-bomb and pursuing the Kama Sutra by channeling the long-lost spirit of John Wayne and singing along with the soundtrack to Chicago.

A longtime writer of complicated haiku, currently Sean is attempting to learn the advanced arts of plate spinning and soap carving sex toys. Barring any of that? He’ll stick with writing his stories, thanks, and rubbing pretty bodies together to see if they spark.
