Wes has spent his life looking for that one special guy who will understand and love him—all of him. From his tender vanilla side, to his darker debauched side.

Throughout high school, his successful career in the Marines, and as a BDSM Dom, he’s remained confident his partner is out there waiting to be found.

However, several events shake his normally unflappable self–assurance.

And, even after he finds Grif, will his past catch up with him and possibly drive his soul mate away?

This second story in the series continues the tale of Wes and Grif that began in Grif’s Toy. It’s a rather darker novel, composed of lengthy scenes from Wes’ current life with Grif (his sub, his soul mate, and his partner) interspersed with significant events from his past that have all impacted on the man and made him the Dom and person he is today. We witness Wes developing his own sadistic brand of kink while still at school with straight and gay friends, in a military bootcamp, with another Dom and his sub, and when tormenting Grif.

The storyline goes back and forth between past and present, with each chapter being given a date so the reader knows when it is set. Admittedly I was a little confused at times, not because of the jumbled timeline, but because we’re often only given part of the picture and it is only later we see the relevance of the scene or the influence the characters have on Wes’ life. And all the time, the reader knows something isn’t quite right. It is only towards the end of the story that the meaning of these events fall into place. The author created some fabulous secondary characters and each is there for a specific reason.

Wes and Grif are complex and fascinating characters, individually and as a couple. They enjoy a unique and intense sadistic-masochistic D/s relationship and we witness various snapshots of this as they explore their preferred kinks. We are treated to glimpses of their lifestyle through small penis humiliation and exhibition play, chastity devices and extended orgasm denial, pleasure and punishment as they negotiate or share some wonderful scenes and push the boundaries in their evolving sexual relationship. These moments are erotic and hot, and above all show the love and trust each man has in the other and their desire to bring pleasure by providing everything the other man needs. The whole relationship comes across as genuine—as if constructed from personal knowledge and experience.

But Wes has a secret he hasn’t shared with Grif.  We find out as Grif discovers the truth, although we are given hints to its dark nature along the way. There’s a truly emotional scene where Grif worries that their bond has not been enough for Wes. I thought the book’s title referred to the denial Wes demanded of Grif. I gradually realised that Wes has spent much of his life in denial regarding certain events from his past.

The book is very well written with heart-wrenching and erotic scenes. The captivating story draws you in and makes it easy to visualise each event. In fact, I was cringing and pulling away when Grif’s cock cage was first fitted. There are also violent and disturbing incidents, including brutal beatings and punishments, which are essential to the story. The epilogue is bittersweet and made me cry. But it was perfect.

Some people may find the content of the story disturbing, so please heed the warning tags. And make sure you read book 1 first, otherwise much of the story won’t make sense.

For me, this is a beautiful love story between two men who mean the whole world to each other and are willing to do what it takes to make the other happy. Indeed, they spend a lifetime learning to please their soul mate.

Martin is a guy’s guy, one who enjoys the simple things in life: baseball games with his son, family days, barbecues, and date nights with his lovely wife.

Once a year for two weeks, Martin takes his son, Marty, to Quillon’s Covert, a rustic family cabin secluded in the beautiful California mountains. Since before those long days of learning to play ball, Marty has loved his dad, but as Marty matures, Martin starts to see something else settle in his son’s uncertain gaze. What’s there lingers a little more than it should, and it seems far more appraising than it once was.

As Marty shows every sign of taking the lead, Martin is faced with the tough choices most parents never see: lose his son by being a father, or try to balance what’s best for their relationship by being something… more.

But with another trip to Quillon’s Covert on the horizon, has the point of no return already begun?

Note: This book contains incest.

Quillon’s Covert is a family-owned cabin set in the mountains, well away from the city and the rest of the civilised world. This tranquil place nestles among mature trees beside a lake, providing an idyllic retreat for the father and son’s annual male bonding trip. During this uninterrupted quality time they enjoy fishing, swimming, reading, listening to music, as well as cooking on the barbecue. Tradition has it they shed their clothing from the start, so neither man is embarrassed by their nakedness.
Marty is an only child and comes from a loving and supportive family. He enjoys a trusting relationship with his father, who is somewhat overprotective of his son because of an incident when Marty was a toddler. They have always been close, with plenty of affectionate contact. Marty is not a spoilt brat. He has been disciplined and taught to be respectful. As a result, he is developing into a mature and level-headed young man. He is confident enough to hug his father and tell him he loves him. Martin provides the calm and comfort his son needs. His special terms of endearment and cute nicknames are heart-warming and made me smile.

Each chapter provides a snapshot of their time at Quillon’s Covert and a glimpse into their changing connection as the years pass. We get to see both characters’ point of view and the closeness between the two men and their affection immediately becomes apparent. Throughout the story their overwhelming love shines through their actions and dialogue.

When Marty reaches puberty he starts to see Martin in a different light. He wants to be and look like his father. He crushes on his Dad’s hot body and his uncut cock. Marty is gay and Martin is straight. The men are candid about their thoughts and desires as their relationship moves to another level. They are both virgins with regard to gay sex and use their time at Quillon’s Covert to explore each other’s bodies and delve into their fantasies.

This beautiful story has an almost dreamlike quality, as if it is set in another world. What the two men did together at Quillon’s Covert didn’t extend to the real world or interfere with their other relationships when they returned home. Martin’s love for his wife was never seriously challenged. I assume she never discovered or suspected anything untoward between her husband and son. It’s almost as if these two weeks each year were a different life, set apart from reality. They provided something for each other they didn’t receive elsewhere. Both men experienced the best times of their lives here and admitted they loved each other more than anyone else. As much as they loved their other halves, nothing compared to the time they spent at Quillon’s Covert. But that’s where it stayed.

This devoted love is delightfully expressed from their first tentative touches to the hot and explicit sexual acts. Throughout the story the sex is consensual. Marty constantly receives reassurance about his father’s care and concern for him.

Quillon’s Covert was co-written by two talented male authors. Each presented one character’s point of view. Joseph portrayed Martin, while Louis wrote Marty’s sections of the story. Their writing styles are similar and complement each other perfectly, giving a slightly different voice to the two personalities.

Please heed the warnings tagged in this story and give it a wide berth if you are likely to be upset by any of them. It’s a taboo story involving biological father/son incest, age difference, cheating, explicit sex, kinks, spanking, and light bondage. Don’t be like the reviewer on Goodreads who gave the story 1* even before it was released. If it’s not for you, please move on.

If taboo is your thing or you’re open-minded, give it a read and enjoy. I can guarantee you will love this fabulous piece of writing and the heart-warming story.

Louis Stevens

LOUIS is a gay romance author born and raised in South Africa. He was a shy outcast who had few friends in school; generally feeling excluded and on the fringe of society. However, when he discovered gay romance and erotica in 2007, at the age of seventeen, his mind and world opened up.

He wrote his first story, A Better Life, longhand in a 197 page spiral notebook, on his bed every night with a pillow curled under his chin. Although the book wouldn’t be published until 2011, with the now defunct Silver Publishing, he found the experience entirely liberating. He’s considered himself a writer ever since.

Brothers LaFon: Crucial Lessons by Joseph Lance Tonlet


 Brothers LaFon: Crucial Lessons

Part One of the Brothers LaFon Series

Joseph Lance Tonlet

Novellette: 16,000+ words / 56 pages
Genre(s): Gay, Erotica, Psychological Thriller

Alexander LaFon lives a nightmare, but he deals with it. Deals with the fact that his mother abandoned him as an infant, deals with the fact that his father is never home, and deals with the fact that his older brother, Jeremiah, tortures him.

He dreams of escaping his mobile-home prison and finding a normal life. Of breaking free of his agony, finding a woman to love, becoming a teacher.

But some horrors you can never outrun. There’s nowhere to hide. Some nightmares chase you in your sleep and steal your freedom like a brutal thief. Some brothers never give up and never answer why.


This book contains graphic violence, gay erotica, non-consensual sex, forced submission, incest, child abuse, and animal cruelty.

This first part of Jeremiah and Alex’s story is a superbly written, dark and gripping tale. It begins and ends in the present. In between, are scenes from the brothers’ childhood, from when they are young boys and in their late teens. We discover in graphic detail how Jeremiah gains control over his younger brother, both physically as well as mentally, has him living in fear of punishment and desperately wanting to beg for his brother to stop this abuse. Alex learns what his brother wants and succumbs to his routines. We witness this forced submission, the pain Alex endures and the scars that are inflicted for Jeremiah’s gratification, sexual and otherwise. Jeremiah is unpredictable in his words and deeds, and like Alex, we don’t know what he will do next. And this makes for superb and arousing reading.

So yes, the story contains animal cruelty, incest and a sadistic psychopath who is turned on by his own violent actions. But for me, there’s another aspect to this story and I’m hoping this will be explored in subsequent parts. Despite Jeremiah claiming he hated his younger brother and needed to cause him pain and humiliation, there’s an undercurrent of an erotic connection between these boys. I’m wondering if this will be the next stage of their relationship, building on the fear and the routines from their past.
