The Closet Boy by Sean Michael
Series: Iron Eagle Gym #4
Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: BDSM, Contemporary, MM
Life hasn’t dealt Way’ra Bernard a fair hand. Raised in a deeply religious household Way was attending a Christian college when he was caught in a compromising situation with another student. He shouldered the blame and lost everything. He was dropped from school and kicked out of his home without a chance to even gather his belongings.
Without any skills Way felt lucky to get a janitor job at Iron Eagle Gym. Penniless he quietly cleared out a third-floor closet as a place to sleep and survived on one tiny meal a day. Way planned to save up his meager paycheck for an apartment of his own.
Successful jewelry maker Neal McPherson visits the Iron Eagle Gym on a regular basis to keep in great shape and lately to take a peek at the cute little janitor. Any attempts he’s made to ask Way out have been firmly rebuffed. When he does finally get Way to meet him for coffee Neal is even more enchanted. The Dom is certain that Way is the submissive he’s been searching for. An innocent comment at another coffee date spooks Way and leaves Neal completely baffled. Patient in his career Neal intends to use every ounce of calm he possesses to get Way to open up. He’s not going to give up on the one meant for him.
The Closet Boy alternates between tugging your heartstrings and smoldering with quietly leashed passion. The characters are brimming with life, from Way’s pure heart, innocent and lost to Neal’s straightforward, honesty. Their love story is a testament to author Sean Michael’s skill at writing. A clever dance between Dom and sub is played out in the pages of The Closet Boy. Enjoy their journey as heat and heart entwine.
