Greg’s on a downward spiral. He broke his back a few years into a promising stunt career, then his master died shortly after they began living a BDSM lifestyle together. He’s just lost. So lost, that he can’t keep a Master for more than two weeks. So lost that he’s been arrested several times and is this close to winding up in jail. So lost that Master Oliver doesn’t know what to do with him anymore.
In desperation, Oliver calls on his friend Appleton who lives in isolation in Northern Canada. Ap enjoys working with subs, and has both the time and the inclination to work with a lost soul like Greg. Not to mention, there’s no way to get into legal trouble or run away from Ap’s house given its location. So, Ap takes Greg in, hoping to help Greg find his center and himself again.
Will Greg find what he needs with Ap? Or will he find so much more?
Find out in this latest addition to Sean Michael’s Hammer Club series.
Solitary is a very sweet yet emotional addition to the Hammer series. I’ve read the other books in the series and although all are very interesting, I really loved this one. The characterization was key in making this a really awesome read. Greg’s pain was so real to me, I sometimes forgot I was reading a story. The tender way Appleton catered to him was deftly executed, especially in terms of their BDSM lifestyle. This was more than just deviant sex, although the sexual situations lived up to what’s expected in a Hammer story. Greg needed someone strong in his life to help him recover and to find his center. He found that in Appleton, a beautiful man who with a simple touch and the right words helped Greg to heal. Patience definitely played a huge role in Greg regaining his self esteem and learning to love again. I truly enjoyed reading this one. If you’re not a fan of BDSM themed stories you might not like it, but if you’re a particular fan of the Hammer series pick this one up. You won’t be disappointed.
