Pre-Game by Sean Michael
Book seven in the Chess series

Before there were four, there were three. Learn how Rook, Knight and Bishop came together.

When Rook and Knight meet at a live drawing class Rook is modeling for, it’s lust at first sight. Open and eager with his sexuality, Rook immediately draws Knight’s attention. Lust soon turns to love for the two men. The question, though, is what happens when a third man feels like he belongs with them?

Dive into this story of how Rook, Knight and Bishop met to become the threesome who invited Jason to join them in the Chess series.

The Chess series
Can a working threesome find a fourth to help them balance their lives? Rook, Knight and Bishop believe so.

The happy threesome know there’s something missing and when they find Jason, they’re pretty sure he’s just what they need.

Join these four sexy men as they explore the dynamics between them and work toward finding a happy ending of their very own.

About Sean Michael
Often referred to as “Space Cowboy” and “Gangsta of Love” while still striving for the moniker of “Maurice,” Sean Michael spends his days surfing, smutting, organising his immense gourd collection and fantasizing about one day retiring on a small secluded island peopled entirely by horseshoe crabs. While collecting vast amounts of vintage gay pulp novels and mood rings, Sean whiles away the hours between dropping the f-bomb and pursuing the kama sutra by channelling the long lost spirit of John Wayne and singing along with the soundtrack to “Chicago”.

A long-time writer of complicated haiku, currently Sean is attempting to learn the advanced arts of plate spinning and soap carving sex toys.

Barring any of that? He’ll stick with writing his stories, thanks, and rubbing pretty bodies together to see if they spark.

My View:

After reading the Chess series a couple of times now this was a real treat. It takes us back to the time before Jason when first there were two before there were three.

Rook is his usual ‘out there’ self as he poses naked for the art class and glows with all the attention of people admiring his body. It feels a bit like déjà vu that Knight discovers the first love of his life whilst drawing him naked at a class he really doesn’t need to attend. They love each other fast and hard and yep you guessed it they end up in bed very quickly.

Whilst dating and getting to know each other and also whilst dancing naked in the rain they meet dark and handsome Bishop. This time it’s not love at first sight, it’s not really even lust at first sight but there is something…something that plays on each man’s mind until they see each other again. Two very quickly become three and we see the first signs of how their relationship will eventually balance out with their very different needs.
