What happens when the man you left suddenly becomes the man you need?
Richard and Dave have a past together, but back then they couldn't give each other what they needed. When they meet again, it's both awkward and wonderful. Richard is far more confident now, and he knows he can be the sort of lover Dave requires.
Dave has some secrets that might blow up in their faces, though, and a serious case of self-doubt. Can he and Richard make a future for each other and fight the demons in their past?
Mychael Black, author of Going Home, writes:
Music and Metal is the story of Richard and Dave, two former lovers who work to rebuild what they once had. Several years ago, their relationship came to an end when Richard could not be the Dom that Dave needed and wanted him to be. Now, Richard has found his own calling as one of the most well-known Doms in the area. When a chance meeting at a bar brings them back together, he sets out to prove to Dave just how much he has changed.
But all is not perfect. In addition to rebuilding a relationship, one of lovers and Master/slave, they must deal with Killian, a face from Dave’s not-so-lustrous past. As Richard works to show Dave that he isn’t to blame for Killian’s monstrous behavior, they both must face this demon from Dave’s past once more.
Music and Metal is, by far, one of the best D/s books I’ve read in a long time. The relationship between Richard and Dave is as sweet as it is intense, in play and out. I was constantly on the edge of my seat, half-squirming and half-bouncing, eager to see what happens next.
If you like D/s stories, this one is NOT to be missed.
He downed the rest of the drink and nodded his head to the beat of the industrial rock blaring through the speakers. A lean man settled two stools down, older than the others, dressed in a simple white T-shirt and jeans, dirty blond hair pulled back in a pony...
Well, he'd be damned.
David "I just want you to tie me up a little" Magnus, the whole reason
Richard had discovered the lifestyle in the first place. They'd split up because he couldn't give Dave what he needed. Of course, that was a lot of years ago and Richard was a different man now. He could tie Dave up now and more than just a little.
He cleared his throat.
Those eyes were just as green as ever, just as bright as they went wide. "Rich!"
He smiled and stood. "Dave. Long time no see, man."
He walked around to the other side of Dave, letting his eyes linger, take in the sweet little ass encased in the tight jeans, the lean muscles outlined by the T-shirt. Some things hadn't changed much. "You're looking good."
"Thanks. You... you look better than ever. Honest." Dave had a tiny little goatee now, a gay pride necklace around his throat.
"Thank you." Rich knew he did. He worked out now, he was confident now.
Most of all, he knew who he was.
"I haven't seen you here before, Dave."
"Hmm? No. No. I just... I'm in a wandering phase."
Oh, Dave still hadn't found what he needed. Richard wondered if Dave even knew what he was looking for. And that lit a fire in his belly. "If you were mine, you wouldn't be wandering," he noted.
"No? So far, I'm not the, uh... keeper type." The shot of whiskey was slammed back, another ordered.
He chuckled. "No?" Leaning in, he whispered into Dave's ear. "If you were mine you'd be branded as mine, collared, cuffed, taken."
