Guest Review: Inked Music by Sean Michael

Can a wealthy but bored businessman rescue a tortured musician from his self-imposed purgatory with a scorching kinky romance?

When Rene Conette attends an intimate performance at a local bar, the guitarist moves him enough that he attempts to go backstage but is stymied by the man’s bodyguard. Putting it down as not meant to be, he goes on with his life only to run into the man again, late at night at a bookstore.

Gavin Turner used to be a famous musician until an obsessed fan kidnapped and tortured him. Then it came out that he was into the BDSM lifestyle, and the court of public opinion ravaged him. He lost his Master and his self-confidence. Now he hides behind his ink and his bodyguards, who make sure he doesn’t come into contact with anyone or anything he doesn’t want to. Though it’s been years since he satisfied his needs, he doesn’t think he can trust again.

If Rene can work his way past Gavin’s defenses, they might find they complement each other perfectly.

Reviewer: Shee Reader

Rene is completely taken when he sees the mystery performer, but it isn’t until they meet again in a bookstore that he gets to talk to Gavin. Gavin’s need speaks to Rene from the start, but trust is the thing they need to build.

Being a Sean Michael book, the reader gets what they are expecting, or at least I did! A good dose of insta-lust turned love, and a generous helping of kinky sex.

I liked the characters from the outset, and although Rene wasn’t exactly relatable, I wanted him to make a connection with Gavin. There was a gentle hand given to Gavin's torture experience and his mysterious twin bodyguards (I hope they get their own story) and the courage which with Gavin let Rene in was inspiring. The way Rene helped Gavin overcome a panic attack was charming and I was so happy these guys got their HEA.

I was given a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review
