ometimes it’s just about being in the right place at the right time… with the right person.
Sarge is the short story of a burgeoning D/s relationship between two space marines stationed on an alien planet where an endless war drags on.
Sergeant Wilkes is a hard man with a long, celebrated military career.
Brawny, tattooed, and utterly submissive, Murphy is just an interesting diversion… until Sarge realises he has found something truly rare.
Optimist ♰King’s Wench♰’s View:
I’m rapidly approaching hero worship with this author. This little nugget packs more of a punch than I had any right to expect in fifty odd pages. Sarge is a well constructed novella with fantastic world building, superb research into military speak, likable characters that are kinky and ON FI-YAH!
For serious. I need a fire extinguisher to put out the still smoldering flames. A DAY LATER!
Sarge and Murphy are part of war with some alien species that has been waging forever or so it seems to them. The backstory on the specifics of the war, the name of the planet and the aliens is lacking, though through some stellar research (side eyes) it looks as though there will be a sequel, so perhaps the specifics will be addressed then. However, the imagery associated with the climate and terrain of the planet is fantastic. It’s hellish. Literally.
The weaponry, military, medical and scientific advancements were clever, unique and added to the world building, but what lent it credence was the military-speak. It was spot on. I live near a military base and have interacted with many soldiers and this is how they talk. Everything is acronyms and shorthand, some of which are silly and leave me wondering why exactly an acronym was necessary, as was the case here. BFR amused me.
Sarge and Murph meet officially in the field where Murph patches up Sarge. It’s quickly clear Murph has a crush on his Sargent and Sarge quickly susses out his proclivities. By the time we next catch up to them Murph is naked in Sarge’s quarters polishing his boots. Did I mention that Murph is “big as a goddamned wall and built like a Roman god.”? And submissive?
“I’m naked because Sarge likes me that way. And that’s fine with me too. After all, my cock is his; if he wants it out in the open, so be it.”
Oh my dear, sweet lord… someone get me an ice pack for that sucker-punch I just took.
Sarge is older, considerably smaller and gruff with a bit of a short fuse whereas Murph is quietly intelligent, patient, thick-skinned and, most importantly, obedient. Such a good boy taking days on end of orgasm denial like a trooper. Did I mention they were hot? I particularly enjoyed the neural link scene and the shower scene and the… oh, you get the idea.
There’s no doubt Mr. Deckard (I really want to call him Bey Bey but I doubt that would go over well.) brings it with the kink and truth be told, that’s really all I was expecting out of Sarge. I was delightfully surprised that there was an actual story. The foundation has been laid and I eagerly anticipate the next installment.
Highly recommend this tasty lil morsel.
