The blurb…

The moment model and part-time actor Benjamin spots the sexually alluring David outside his local restaurant, he’s determined to get to know him better. So he takes a chance and pretends to be Timothy, the blind date David is waiting for.

When David asks him about submission, safe words and spanking, Benjamin knows the sensible thing to do would be to leave. Funny then how he finds himself eager to know more. Will it be a date to remember and, if David discovers his deceit, could he ever be persuaded to take a chance on Benjamin?

So what did I think?

This was a fun short story about acting on the spur of the moment and seeing where life takes you! Maybe not the safest thing to do but it all worked out in the end for Benjamin.

The idea was interesting – when an attractive man outside a restaurant asks if he is ‘Timothy’, Benjamin says yes. What follows is a very interesting first date with an unusual alley encounter and ‘Timothy’ can’t resist going home with David.

Timothy and David have shared an online introduction so know a bit about each other so it is amusing to watch Benjamin try to make sense of what is going on. What is going on is a foray into the world of dominance and submission and it turns out that Benjamin is a natural and an eager student.

David is kind and caring and plays by the rules, shocked at ‘Timothy’s’ apparent disregard for his own safety and treatment at the hands of a previous lover. He treats ‘Timothy’ with respect and teaches him slowly as they have their first encounter – and it is HOT! I actually would have enjoyed seeing a lot more of the two of them together and was slightly disappointed there wasn’t more.

Lots of fun and an enjoyable short story! 3.5 stars
