As a reader, there's something really comforting when you pick up a book by an author whose books you've read many times before. There are few surprises and sometimes, that's what you really want. Such is the case for me and a book by Sean Michael. I know I'm going to get a book that has A LOT of sex in it, a book with two guys who have either insta-love or at the very least insta-lust, and they'll be borderline saccharine sweet. Bringing Nicky Home had all of the above, with a tad bit of drama thrown into the mix just to keep things interesting.

Whip and Nicky are a typical Sean Michael couple--Whip is the sensitive Dom whereas Nicky is the very willing sub who only wants to make his master happy. There's lots of sweet endearments, LOTS of sex, and some day to day interactions. Most anyone who has ever read a book by Sean Michael will tell you that the books are thin on plot, and this one was no different. We have a sub who has been abused and a Dom that from the instant they meet, only wants to care for and love him. There's little back ground, little character development--what you see is pretty much all you get. Characters in a Sean Michael book aren't deep or complex, but again, sometimes, you need a book to escape into for a few hours where you don't have to think too much.

I did like Nicky's foray into being a barista, and it was nice to see a few secondary characters make an appearance. All in all this is a low-angst, quick and light read that was a nice way to spend a few hours. Give it a try and see what you think.

  1. It's not a January release, but I've saved Rhys Ford's "Hanging the Stars" to read this month. It will be a reward for clearing out last year's files and shredding them!

  2. I'm about to start Ash and Cinders by Rodd Clark, plus I have Jay Northcote's ARC for Housemates #4 to read.
