The head of Global Pictures Studios, Vincent Franklin, promised Jack Stone that he would take care of Jack’s loyal driver, Juan. But for a dominant man like Vincent, Juan’s natural submissiveness causes him to long for much more from the shy young man.

Juan is devastated when his only friend, film star Jack Stone, leaves Hollywood for good. Lonely most of his life, the shy young man has dreamt of love, only to have his heart broken repeatedly. Before he left, Jack made certain that Juan would be taken care of by asking his ex-boss, studio chief Vincent Franklin, to hire him on.
Vincent Franklin is an incredibly controlled and meticulous man. Not given to emotional outbursts and unnecessary flights of fancy, his temperament is ideal for the stressful and demanding job as head of Global Pictures Studio. He leads a carefully concealed private life, his only social outlet being the sadomasochism club to which he belongs. When Jack introduces him to his handsome chauffeur Juan, he is struck by how naturally submissive Juan is. He wonders…
Soon, Juan is falling for the elegant, older man that is his new boss. He’s also thrilled when Vincent asks him to be his personal valet. But there are things that Vincent demands of a lover that Juan knows nothing about. Things that could make him run away from the man who would do anything to protect and care for him.

Author Bio: M/M Erotic Romance author Morticia Knight enjoys a good saucy tale – after all, who doesn’t? Since she loves several genres, you may find your heroes in a contemporary, historical, paranormal or sci-fi setting. One of her passions is bringing people's fantasies to life on the page, because life is too short for even one boring moment. Her stories are volcanic in heat, deep in emotion, and sprinkled with doses of humor.
When not indulging in her obsession for books, she loves the outdoors, film and music. The Pacific Northwest is the ideal spot to enjoy both hiking and beachcombing. Once upon a time she was the singer in an indie rock band that toured the West Coast and charted on U.S. college radio. She now resides on the northern coast of Oregon, where the constant rain and fog remind her of visits to family in England and Scotland when she was a child.
She is currently working on the Gin & Jazz series about the glitz and glamour of 1920’s Hollywood and additional installments of the Uniform Encounters series.

Jimmy, Mrs Fisher and Me by Eric Bishop-Potter

There was an odd naivite in this story that was all of its main character, Simon, and thanks to the hand of its author, Eric Bishop-Potter. People say to 17 years old Simon that he looks older, but actually I think he was all in all a teenager, with the reactions to life, and its bad turns, that only a teenager can have.

Simon is most likely bisexual, but he is also in love with his stepbrother Jimmy (same mother, different fathers); not that Simon ever says that, but evertthing he is doing is to give Jimmy, who is slowly becoming blind, the chance to see how much of the world he still have the time to see. Jimmy, good-hearted and plain beautiful, has only one dream, to see the Grand Canyon. But Simon and Jimmy are from the wrong side of London, living on government allowance, and there is no chance they can afford the trip. So Simon, after a chance or two at different odd jobs, decides to turn tricks, the faster way to get the money he needs.

Simon approaches to sex is detached, I really didn't feel like he considers it something worthy or important; he has it with women and men, but more like scratching an itch than as an expression of his feelings. Simon is very physical, but I felt his involvement more real in "innocent" acts like when he is dancing with Jimmy, or just lying in bed with him, without touching, than when he is having sex or turning trick. Actually, when these latter are happening, it felt dirty, and instead, when he is intimate with his stepbrother, it felt honest and pure.

This novel was a surprise, I drank it in one gulp, but it still lingers around me.
