After a scorching night of sex and sin, two men need to make a decision in their lives.

Jeff works nights playing guitar at a strip club. Pete works days as a tour guide. Neither man is happy and both search for fulfillment. Can they find it in each other’s arms?

While the sex is great, and the orgasms body shaking, how can their relationship survive if they’re separated by time? Surrendering to wild emotions is easy. Real life is messy but the fight for love is worth it.  

Joey’s Review:
It’s a funny thing, what I’m discovering about m/m erotica: Even in the shortest tales, the instant chemistry/love-at-first-sight thing works.  Maybe it’s more believable, in my twisted mind, that two men can turn animal magnetism into head-over-heels love in such a short period of time.

I’m not a tremendous fan of m/m sex scenes. Hey, I’m broadening my horizons, though. Baby-steps, okay? But I do have to say that Ms. Brown came up with a few fresh twists on the down-and-dirty, which is always a smutty plus.

I enjoyed Strung Tight. The heat is high, and the story is easy to go along with. I’m also discovering that erotica is about pure lusty escapism - that I should stop questioning the how and why and just read it, already.
I think maybe the story ended a little too abruptly for me – it was wrapped up at warp speed. But take that comment with a grain of salt if you enjoy m/m erotica. That’s just my opinion. I still liked the story, and I enjoyed meeting the characters of Pete and Jeff. Ultimately, I was happy they got together, and I think you’ll be happy too.
