Book Review of Shibari Auction House: Jack by Sean Michael

    A Modern Gay Romance Review

    Shibari Auction House Jack (Book Cover)Shibari Auction House: Jack by Sean Michael is the first book in a new series that promises to be very good. The main characters JF and Jack meet as a consequence of Jack’s outrageous gambling debts. To save himself from his debtor, Jack auctions off three years of his life to JF. Beginning a relationship on such unbalanced terms, even a BDSM relationship, would seem risky, but JF and Jack appear to be off to a great start. The chemistry between these two unlikely bedfellows is strong.

    Michael is great at writing BDSM stories that skirt around the edges of the lifestyle and Shibari Auction House is no exception. This is different from Michael’s usual fare though; Jack is definitely no twink. The tug of war between these two strong men is interesting to watch and the sex is not bad either.

    Shibari Auction: Jack is a fun read. It’s worth 4 stars for originality and execution. The only problem with the story is the brevity. How’s this relationship going to proceed? How will two individuals from such different backgrounds make their relationship work? Perhaps, Michael will take up these details in the next installment.
