Book Review of Shibari Auction House: Alec by Sean Michael

    Shibari Auction House - Alec (Book Cover)Shibari Auction House: Alec is the second installment in Sean Michael’s Shibari Auction House BDSM series. It’s a short story that focuses mainly upon the two main characters Benj, the new Dom and Alec, an experienced sub. The two young men meet during an auction at Shibari House. Alec is selling his services for two years and Benj is looking for a new sub.

    This Dom/sub pair has some problems to overcome from the outset. Alec, while an experienced sub, is unsure of himself after his former Master rejected him. On the other hand, Benj is not an experienced Dom. The two have good chemistry, though. There’s an immediate attraction. Michael builds the sexual tension between pair with skill. This is a brief story, but it’s not an unfinished story. By the end of Alec, it’s clear where these two men are going in their relationship.

    Michael is light-handed with the BDSM life-style. Much of Alec focuses on the two main characters getting to know each other, discovering their sexual likes and dislikes. This second story in the Shibari Auction House series continues in the same vein as the first with the emphasis on the main Dom and sub. The auction house loosely connects the two stories. It might be interesting to know more about the Shibari House. For instance, who owns the house? What goes on there when an auction isn’t underway?

    Shibari Auction House: Alec is worth 3.5 stars. It falls a little short of the bar set by Shibari Auction House: Jack, but it’s well worth the read.
