Manties in a Twist

J.A. Rock. Riptide, $17.99 trade paper (283p) ISBN 978-1-62649-347-6
The third in Rock’s BDSM-themed Subs Club series (after Pain Slut) is the author’s best yet. Combining love, lust, and insecurity, the story of Kamen—a generally happy-go-lucky gay man—and his new lover, Ryan, is both touching and endearing. Two years after Kamen’s close friend Hal died during a BDSM scene, Kamen still hasn’t gotten over the loss. After he moves in with his new boyfriend, Kamen’s friends keep pointing out that Ryan’s not a part of their close-knit group, threatening the relationships they all share. Will Kamen’s relationship with Ryan endure, or will it cleave him away from all that he holds dear? Rock’s deep affection for the characters lends itself to readers loving Kamen, Ryan, and all in their orbit, encouraging them to invite this group of complicated, loving men into their lives. (Apr.)
