    One thought on “The Ride”

    1. 3 - 31/2 HeartsReview written for MM Good Book ReviewsThis story is part of a series and must be read in order. Emanuel (Manny) survived the merging of two parallel worlds, having his secret love meet another man and the creatures of the night, but now he has been captured by the Dark Ones and sold off as a slave. Black Rose (Darius) was in prison when the world ended and is now with the Dark Ones, he couldn’t care less about the Dark or Bright Ones and just wants to be left alone to survive. [...]

    2. Finally, Manny's story. With the exception of a few scenes in the first half (view spoiler)[Darius orders Manny to give him blowjobs and rubs off on him in the shower. While Manny is mostly willing, there isn't actual consent, Darius treats Manny pretty crappy, and doesn't reciprocate, leaving Manny aroused, humiliated, and hurt. (hide spoiler)] I was very happy with the story. It felt like there was more to this story than the others, though that may have just been because I like Manny so much. [...]

    3. 1.5 stars - Again, the concept was great, but the delivery not so much. Didn't help that it had serious editing issues.
