Joy & Pain [NOOK Book]

Overview

The stage.


It’s my home.


Doesn’t matter if soft, muted-pink leather encases my feet as I perform the ballet of my career, or if I’m wearing combat boots, a little twink stripping as I twirl around a brass hued pole. What once brought me joy, a thrill, now tugs me down. But it’s all I can do. And so...I do.

    This was a very short story but I really felt that I still got to know the characters and enjoy their story. Tevin's life has been changed and he doesn't really think he'll find what he needs so he's been satisfied to compromise and survive. But his boss and friend Lucas has been sharing secrets with his old buddy Zeke. When Zeke and Tevin met up there is an instant attraction and hope that both guys will end up HEA.

    I read this short story and it was not what I was expecting, although I might have had a better idea if I had known what a twink was haha.. it is a m/m story...again short story; so there was not much background.

    Good

    Im not into m/m - i wasnt expecting that, but it was a good read. I like the writers style - pretty witty and often writes like someone thinks, so the characters come off relateable and realistic. The kink for this short story is age play, so if you are into that and m/m then this might be a great pick for you. Ill be looking up authors other works to see if she has something more to my taste.
