The Other Man by Matthew J. Metzger

He’s never minded the other men—except for this one.

Aled’s jealous, and he doesn’t like it.

He’s always had an open relationship with Gabriel and it was working fine—until he saw those messages from Michael. Now Aled can’t get the tone out of his head, and the nagging feeling that Gabriel deserves better than a man like that.

But Gabriel only gives Aled control during their games and is wary of giving too much to a dominant boyfriend with a distinct sadistic streak. Outside the bedroom, Aled has to tread much more carefully if he wants to keep what they have.

Can he persuade Gabriel to part ways with the creepiest man Aled’s ever met, or will the dominant have to learn when to submit?

Reader advisory: This book contains expressions of homophobia and transphobia by multiple characters, stalking by an ex and violence from an ex. There are scenes of rough sex and of BDSM.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I loved being back with Aled and Gabriel. Nothing about their relationship in and out of the bedroom is average. Their scenes when they played were great even though they were a little more extreme that I would normally read – they were exciting.

Their romantic relationship was far more complicated than most. Gabriel has no wish to be monogamous and is fiercely independent. So Aled, wanting Gabriel to move in with him, poses issues other couples might not come across. I just really enjoyed the journey with this couple. It was a pleasure to spend time with them and I think it is because they were unpredictable and a little different but still very much in love.

I’m not sure if the author plans to write more stories of Aled and Gabriel but I certainly hope he does because I for one, want more.
