Excerpt:

David

RULE # 1

KNOW YOUR PREY

I RECOGNIZED his type the moment he first approached me—a typical love-’em-and-leave-’em. His kind swoops in, sweeps you off your feet, fucks you stupid, and before you’ve even had time to gather your wits, they’ve pulled up their pants and zipped their flies at the same time as they rush toward the nearest exit.

Now, don’t get me wrong—I have no problem with being fucked stupid. Rather like swapping roles, actually, when it’s the right guy. The right guy being older and more experienced, just like this guy is—but I want to be memorable. I want to be more than another notch on the bed post. You want to fuck me, you’re going to have to earn the privilege, and you’re damn well going to remember it. Fuck, you’re going to want to repeat it… again and again. Whether I let you is another story….

In the interim, I’ll hunt down for myself some cute, but forgettable, little twink to fuck stupid.

Which is exactly what I’ve been doing all week…

My 5* Review:

A hot, lust-filled short story told in alternating points of view.

William, the hunter, gets to know his prey. He’s the bar owner observing a hot, young, confident, gorgeous red-head with lust and want. He’s used to luring men into his lair to ensnare them. He usually captures and has his way with them—just once–and then lets them go. He’s the love’em and leave ‘em type. For three months, with a silent communication of staring, teasing and winking, he enjoys chasing David. He feels it will make the kill even more satisfying when he eventually captures his prey.

The trouble is David also thinks he’s the hunter.  Younger and less experienced, but even so, he’s aware of what William is up to. David wants to be more than a one-night stand. He’s attracted to the older and deliciously fit barman. He wants him to beg for it! And he wants their experience together to be memorable.

Both men think they are in control. They want the other man to be desperate for them. They flirt and torment, hoping the other will finally submit. But who is the hunter and who is hunted in the end?

A highly recommended read. I loved seeing the story unfold through both character’s point of view.

About the author:

Lily Velden lives on the east coast of Australia, her family having emigrated from Holland when she was a child.

She’s both a left and right brain person, holding qualifications in both Finance and Fine Arts. She tells her friends that her way with numbers will make her a profitable artist and writer… one day.

Lily has always had a love of language and a beautifully crafted sentence, and admits to having a fetish for collecting quotes, poems, and song lyrics. What she won’t admit to is how many notebooks she’s filled with those quotes… Her fascination carries on into her artworks where she often incorporates text. When a shoulder injury slowed down her art practice she decided to explore her love of the written word more fully and began writing. “I’ll paint my pictures with words.”

Not that she’s abandoned artmaking in its entirety—Lily collaborates on the designs for all her book covers.

There are many things Lily loves, here are just a few of the PG rated ones: a good laugh (all the better if caused by a naughty joke), the smell of freshly baked goods and mown grass, a smile from a stranger, rainbows after the rain, and witnessing a promise kept.
