Review, Slake by LA Brookes

Title: Slake (Feral Riders)
Author: LA Brookes
Published:  March 1st 2011 by Raven Books
Genre: m/m erotica
Format: ebook received for review

Leo Morgan is a werewolf on the prowl and there is only one man who can slake his burning desires. Jackson may be an unsuspecting human, but this wolf gets more than he bargained for when a night of seduction goes wrong… and oh-so-right.

Warning: This short story contains explicit sex, strong language and m/m romance. This short story has explicit, graphic sexual content and is not for the faint of heart.

So in my reading I have not read a lot of m/m erotica; very little in fact.  I like to broaden my horizons, and so when asked if I’d like to review this book, I said yep!  It was not a very long story, but it was very well written! 

Leo is a feral wolf, almost gypsy like in nature as he travels with some of his wolfy friends.  They do what they want, when they want, and with whom they want.  Sometimes its women, but for Leo, more often than not it is men.  And now one man has caught his eye – Jackson. 

Jackson is human, and Leo thinks there is a chance that he might be homosexual, or in the very least – bisexual.  He’s just noticed the way Jackson looks at him, the way his heart rate increases…he knows there is a mutual attraction there.

So one night Leo orchestrates an entire scheme to get Jackson alone. And it works.

I really thought Leo was such a fascinating character.  He was unapologetic for his nature, he is what he is and he is happy with himself.  He is an alpha wolf without a pack.  He’s got his buddies, but they are like him.  There is no one in charge, they’re just friends.  And the way they help him get to Jackson, well, I’d give them all high fives cause it was pretty ingenious.

This story definitely is not for everyone.  It is very explicit in some areas.  But if m/m erotica is your thing, I definitely say read this story.  The intimate scenes were intense and passionate.  Even if regular erotica is your thing, you might like this story.  The writing flows well and there is no mistaking the passion within.  In a word, fantastic!
