Blurb: Tim’s got a problem with his new job as a carpenter. His foreman, Gary Zucker, is just too damned sexy. With a mustache, hairy arms, and a solid gut, Gary exudes power and confidence, and it’s driving Tim crazy. When Gary notices Tim’s attraction, he figures it’s all over. The foreman will probably fire him for having the wrong kind of wood.
Then Gary surprises him. He shows he knows how to be the boss in more than one way. The question remains if this will be a one time thing, or something more. Tim’s got one chance to show the man how good he can be, before his dream man slips through his fingers.
This is a hot little quickie. It takes place over the course of the day as Tim gets distracted at work, and Gary, the foreman, takes notice. It doesn’t take long for Tim to admit that Gary is the source of Tim’s distraction.
Gary orders Tim to take a break to take care of his problem in order to refocus so he can do his job. He ends up helping out a little with the promise of more after hours. I liked these guys, what little we got to know them. Gary is a no nonsense guy, who lays down the rules early on – they can fool around but Tim is to make no assumptions about anything further, and whatever Gary says goes. Basically, he isn’t to show any interest at work, but must keep things professional. Simple enough, and Tim is fully on board.
This isn’t really BDSM inasmuch as Gary is just a dominant top. It’s quite sexy though, and a very enjoyable fast-paced quick read. I wouldn’t mind reading more about these guys.
Overall Impression: I really liked it
