Title: Plug and Engage
in Don’t Read in the Closet Volume Three anthology
Author: Valentina Heart
Genre: Contemporary / MM Erotica
Cole and Kai only met weekly. They satisfied those annoying primal urges which left the rest of their free time to be used as they saw fit. More than happy with such a solution they never even thought a bit of rough and spice could change everything – until it did.
* This story was written as a part of the M/M Romance Group’s Hot Summer Days event, appears in Don’t Read in the Closet Volume Three, a collection of short stories celebrating love, sex and romance between men. Group members were asked to write a story prompt inspired by a photo of their choice. Authors of the group selected a photo and prompt that spoke to them and wrote a short story.
“Oh, so you only want me for the rough and kinky stuff?”
“You bet. Now order me around.”
Kai and Cole are fuck buddies for more than three years now. They meet every Friday night. Nothing more, only sex; they haven’t even seen each other in daylight.
Kai lives a very well organized life, and this Friday fun is perfect and enough for him.
On the weekends, I’m out of town unless it’s raining and sometimes even if it is. I might be climbing, camping, sky diving or mountain biking. You name it, and I probably do it. It’s my time. Me, my adrenaline and nature. I really don’t need much more.
Now Friday night is release night. Friday nights I get fucked, and while how good it is does depend on my fuck buddy, I have been lucky so far.
But one day something unusual happens between them, and whatever it is, Cole wants to explore it. And he wants it with Kai.
Something had changed between us in that moment and it was something big.
Kai is scared of being in a committed relationship, but Cole is insistent. I loved Cole:he is so confident. And although Kai says that neither of them are “relationship material”, I think Cole is actually very good at this.
I’d never been so aware of my own sexuality. Although it was frustrating at times, it was also close to feeling high, only completely natural. I loved it.
The story is told from both Kai and Cole’s viewpoints, in first person. I usually don’t like first person narrative, because it can be very limited, but here the dual viewpoint is excellent and it allows you to see the whole picture.
It is a light D/s erotic story with a very little pain inflicted, but the main emphasis is not here. Don’t worry, the erotica is hot as hell, but it is about how casual sex can turn into a serious, committed relationship.
It is a great story. No insta-love, no hasty love confessions. Kai and Cole really take it slow, and it is amazing how they fit each other.
