Whip came to the Gay Riders Carnival fundraiser weekend looking for a good time, but what he found was infinitely better.
Whip always has a good time at the Gay Riders Carnival, and this year he’s hoping to meet up with some studs and top last year’s festivities. The last thing he expects when he walks into his cabin is to be nearly bowled over by a skinny lad with a bruised jaw.
Nick came to the Carnival with his so-called Master Dirk, but instead of having a good time, things moved quickly from bad to worse and Dirk responded to his safeword with a punch. Running away and hiding was Nick’s only option.
Broke, alone and not entirely sure how he’s going to get home, Nick thinks Whip is a dream come to life and he’s just waiting for the other shoe to drop. For his part, Whip is drawn to the sweet pup and falls hard for Nick over the course of the long weekend.
But what’s going to happen when the weekend is over?
The Biker’s Pup is the kind of story that resonates perfectly with me when I am in the mood for romance no matter the cost. When I am searching for that cheesy happily ever after that leaves me fulfilled and joyous.
The Biker’s Pup is NOT the kind of story that resonates with me when I am after any semblance of realism, angst, or relationship growth as the romance was actually rushed, unexplained insta-love and the lack of personal safety set my teeth on edge. There was a bit too much perfection for those times when the realist in me comes out to play.
But since I was in the mood for gooey romance, I really enjoyed this story. Nick was such a great character with so much potential. He was full of insecurities and if this story had been longer, he was the perfect candidate for amazing growth and development. Whip was perfect for him in that he fulfilled all the needs Nick had and gave Nick exactly what he needed to feel wanted and to feel safe.
Please note that this story is really BDSM light. There are pet names, talks of safewords, mentions of practices when the men are viewing demonstrations, but that is really it. The men touch on the power dynamic and there is the whole “don’t come until I give you permission,” but things never go any farther.
If you are looking for a rich story with heavy BDSM elements, this story is not for you. But if you are looking for some HOT sex with a lovely romance that will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy, pick this one up!
