Nick is a young man just beginning to explore his sexuality. When he begins to see the man of the house, Stan, in a new light for the first time his inner world goes into a tailspin that ultimately lands him literally in Stan's lap. Once given the control he craves, however, Nick finds that it's all he wants in life despite Stan's insistence that the two of them cannot really have this thing between them forever. And, as Nick begins to reach outside that comfortable, perfect little world, he may well discover that this love was only a stepping stone in a long journey.

Stan knew from the beginning that he shouldn't have done it. He shouldn't have indulged Nick, or his own aching loneliness and when he does things quickly get out of hand. Trapped by desire, obsession, and Nick's ability to get under his skin, he is a broken man. When Nick begins to finally grow outside of their crippling mutual attachment, as much as he wants that for the younger man the jealousy may well tear him apart.

Both men know their love is wrong; both of them know it can never last. But what if they could have something incredible anyway?

This 85,000 word series is a journey into need, obsession, pleasure, honesty, the kind of love that hurts, and the kind of love that heals.

Content: Step-Dad/Step-Son, Unconventional HEA, BDSM, Chastity, Menage

Nick and Stan’s love for each other transcends social boundaries and the “rightness” of their relationship pulled at my heartstrings. It just shows how incredibly talented Simon Strange is... to be able to approach such a taboo subject and pull it off so well. Nick’s Awakening is not just some introspective, dark, and dirty story; it's truly a wonderful book. A definite must read for fans of erotic taboo stories.

I'm stuck in a straight guy's apartment. How am I supposed to deal with this?

I hadn't planned on living with Ross very long. I just needed a place to stay to get on my feet after a bad break up, and happened to be friends with his sister. But when the shelter in place order comes down, not only do I lose any chance of finding my own space; my bartending job dries up, too.

And Ross is taking this order very seriously. He grew up in a family of Montana doomsday preppers, and his rules are very clear: we've got three months of food, and neither of us is leaving—for any reason.

I don't have a ton of money, and there are bills to pay. But there are a few different ways to make some cash online—especially when the rest of the world is shut inside, too, and need something to entertain them. Who would have imagined I would end up on a cam site entertaining guys from all over the world just by being myself and having fun? So long as I wait until Ross goes to sleep before I log on, anyway—I definitely do not want him to know what I'm up to on his couch.

But Ross is full of surprises, it turns out. And I guess I am too. Because what I end up sharing with him is something I've never shared with anyone before. I just worry that things are about to get very complicated. Because every gay boy knows the cardinal rule:

Never, ever fall for the straight guy.

Content: contains low-protocol explorations of BDSM, humiliation play, a brief experiment with urination, exhibitionism, and non-stop scorching hot dialogue.

Okay, so the story has a slow start and was a little too real initally. But hang in there because once it gets warmed up this book is ON FIRE. It got so much more fun and kinky and sweet than I was expecting. By far my favorite Simon Strange book to date and I am most definitely looking forward to the next one. This is the perfect indulgence in these super weird times.

Never take home a stray unless you plan to keep him.

Dean is down on his luck with the ladies when he comes across a violent gay bashing in progress. When he saves twenty one year old Tommy from the thugs, the younger man is grateful and has no where to go.

Unwilling to you a young man freeze in the New York winter night, Dean takes the poor guy home to crash on his couch. He wasn't planning on keeping him, but when Dean wakes up to Tommy's gratitude he realizes that the young guy loves to be dominated, controlled, and trained.

Maybe having a pet around the house to serve Dean's needs wouldn't be the worst thing; but can he keep his heart from getting tangle up with this stray puppy?

Content: Spanking, Straight to Gay, Rescue, Filthy Dialogue, Edging, Begging, Teasing, HFN ending.

I “LUVED” this story. Dean is a frustrated straight guy who saves a twink, Tommy, from an alley beat down. What was so great about this story was how deep into the thinking of the straight man the author was able to take us. If you ever wonder how someone could switch “sides,” this story would help you understand.

I used to be close with my wife's son, Adam. That is, until our marriage went sour and he grew into a rotten, spoiled teenager. But I stuck in there, because that's the kind of man I am. And what else was I gonna do?

Now, though, her brat is away at college, and my wife away at a 'conference' with her co-department head Steve, who's been giving it to her on the regular for a couple of years. I'm ready to enjoy a nice relaxing weekend on my own. Nothing but beer, sports, and hot tub time.

That is, until I get the delightful surprise that Adam, who's stressed from having to actually work for something, is taking a short break from the university life to come back home and pout in his room. Great. But you know what? I'm not going to get sucked into his games and manipulations. No. I'm the man of the house here, and I make the rules. So when he makes a shocking confession, and tells me things I never should have heard, and starts pushing buttons I didn't know I had, I've got no choice but to set him straight and teach him a lesson he'll never forget...

...if only I'd known what I was getting into; God help me.

Content: Coercion, Step-Dad/Step-Son, Spanking, Hottub Antics, Erotica, no HEA, dark.

Sounds funny to say, given most all of Simon Strange's stories focus around dub-con seduction, pseudo incest, and erotica - but The Step-Brat's Lesson is the first one I've found actually pretty dark.

The step-dad is resistant and unwilling... as in, even when he's given in and wholly turned on, he's still not really on board. The step-son takes advantage of his sexually unsatisfied, emotionally neglected step-dad, gets him to the point where he just literally can't stop, and while the son is gleeful, the dad is pretty shaken up.
