Willis is a submissive his supposed Dominant is hustling out to strangers in the glory holes (those strategically positioned holes in the back room of seedy night clubs). Willis has agreed to that for two reasons, one wrong and one right: the wrong one is that he thinks he has to do everything his Dominant asks him, even if it means whoring himself; the right one is that, while doing so, he has the secret dream of finding his prince charming, the man who will take him off the street and give him a real home, with a real Dominant. Willis’s only dream is to really be able to service a real man and being praised back, that is what he most wishes for.
Conrad is a honest, and honourable, constable who is treading on the toes of Willis’s Dominant; Willis is asked to frame Conrad but when the young man nears the older cop, he finds out that this man is good, and kind, and probably he is the first one to really care for him. Refusing to obey to his Dominant is something Willis is not used, or taught, to do, but he cannot do that.
Conrad on the other hand is immediately attracted to the young man, and his protective side kicked in as soon as he realizes Willis is in dear need of having a safe place. Conrad will also have to understand that being noble with Willis in this moment is doing worst than better: Willis needs the physical connection with Conrad, he needs the feelings of being desired and “useful”, sex in this moment is the only valuable commodity he can barter, and he wants to offer it to Conrad. Conrad, who has always preferred to have anonymous sex because it was easier to ignore his partner in that way, have to face his worst fear, risking his heart and being really involved with someone else.
Very nice short novella with the feeling and the opening of a whole novel.
