The characters have the exact same linguistic style of talking as all the previous SM bdsm book characters which doesn't match the type of character Rene and Gavin are supposed to be. And trauma is easily overcome by being horny. Additionally, this seems like SM was trying to set this book maybe in a nonspecific country (Canada, I think) but still has Gavin talking like an American stoner? (Gavin says the notoriety ran his past Dom out of the country to Chicago) but that aspect didn't work well, at all.

But, I have never loved one as I have this book. It was emotional, it was telling and it took the time to comfortably introduce the reader to both men and their decisions. I like that Rene was firm enough to pull back, but yet allowed Gavin to make decisions on his own. In the world of BDSM, trust and honesty should be number one and these men flowed into it. I am highly recommending this book to anyone who likes kink, romance and difference.

It’s a novel of second chances and healing from trauma that links a rather gentle and tamer BDSM lifestyle than author Sean Michael is known for to the pursuit of healing and a new life for Gavin. Despite it being ‘BDSM-lite,’ the way the author presents their attraction and tentative partnership is really effective in revealing just how wounded Gavin is and how much he needs to feel safe before ever considering a relationship with another Dom. Having been stalked, kidnapped, and tortured, Gavin lives a life in fear and hides in the shadows, barely going out except to occasionally play in a small bar when the need to perform takes over and forces him onto the stage again. He is not exactly content to hide in his home with his best friends, twin bodyguards, Dev and Silas, but after the life-altering trauma that exposed his kink and left him without a master, it is safer just to be alone. But Rene is so appealing and Gavin’s inner submissive is drawn to the strong, yet gentle man. Read Sammy’s review in its entirety here.

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 ned 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 male a connection with Gavin. There was a gentle hand given to Gavins 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.

While playing one night Rene is in the crowd. He is so drawn to the man he can't his eyes off of him. He tries to get back stage just to tell him what an amazing performance it is but is stopped and denied by the bodyguard. Rene is saddened but doesn't give it another thought until he sees him again in a book store. Gavin is cautious but interested in Rene. Rene instantly realizes he needs to go slow with Gavin so not to spook him. I was instantly rooting for these two. The chemistry between them was addictive. The side characters were just as interesting as the main. There is room for a follow up or spin off which I would love to see.

Inked Music by Sean Michael is the best book of his that I have read and I have read quite a few of his books. It had the perfect amount of plot to heat ratio. I loved that the book started as a slow burn as the characters got to know each other and work through some past trauma that has made one of the character’s, Gavin Turner, reclusive. His twin bodyguards are his only friends and family and the only people that he trusts besides his brother who works at a used book store/homeless hangout. Gavin 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 ended up losing 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 has satisfied his needs, he doesn’t think he can trust again, but if anybody can tempt him to try, it would be Rene Conette. Rene Conette attended an intimate performance at a local bar and is mesmerized by the guitarist and attempts to go backstage to meet the musician 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. The fact that Rene owns the bookstore isn’t known to any of his employees. They think that he is just one of the regulars that frequent the bookstore at all hours since it is open 24/7. Rene also has a soft spot for homeless and underprivileged youth and likes knowing that he can provide a warm place for them to hang out away from the streets. I loved that both men have more than enough money on their own and so that isn’t a factor in their friendship. It is one less thing for Gavin to worry about that he is just being friended to get to his money. I also loved that Rene never had any problem with one of the twins always being with them wherever they went, whether it was to dinner, movie, or each other’s house for a little fun. I loved that Rene treated them like family instead of a roadblock to get through to get Gavin alone. I loved seeing Gavin and Rene interact together, and I loved seeing Gavin interact with his bodyguards. The scenes between Gavin and Rene were hot, and you could feel their chemistry. I loved watching Gavin get his self-confidence back. They were perfect together. I do wish that we had a little bit more background on what had happened to Gavin when he was kidnapped, but his actions after the trauma showed us just how traumatic it had been and how long it had taken him to get to where he is when he meets Rene. This book reminds me a little bit of Sean’s other book Guarding January which I really enjoyed reading also. I would recommend reading this book to everybody who loves reading BDSM books. ***The ARC was provided by Dreamspinner Press. My review is an honest opinion of the book ***

The first impression is of complete privilege so I wasn't sure if I liked him, but I found myself warming to him more and more as he is patient and kind, if used to getting his way. Gavin Turner is a musician with a haunting past: an obsessed fan kidnapped and tortured him. Once his interest in BDSM became public, people judged that he either enjoyed it or got what he deserved. The cast is completed by twin brothers Silas and Dev, former police who helped rescue Gavin and now work as his private security. Gavin's history sets up a way for Rene and Gavin to take time to establish trust before adding mild BDSM elements into their relationship. The sexual aspect does start surprisingly fast. The book is definitely erotic romance going from one hot sex scene to another, which is what the author does well. It's the the dialogue in the getting to know each other scenes and the scenes between sex scenes that don't seem to flow as easily. After setting up Silas and Dev as Gavin's protectors and family, they are largely ignored for the rest of the book. There is more than one conversation about Gavin's relationship with them not being sexual, which is a little repetitive. If they are supposed to be Gavin's family and closest friends, it seems strange that Rene ignores them. I know they are supposed to be on duty, especially when outside, but in Rene's home in a secure building where you have to be buzzed up, the fact that they are on high alert is a little odd to me. Really though it's the smallest part of the book. The majority of the book is the sex scenes. While hot, they are pretty tame so this may be a good book for people who don't like anything hardcore. They are both wealthy, so they do live in their own little bubble on their own schedule. Work is only mentioned briefly. At the beginning, it did seem as though Rene was in the closet, or just very discreet, taking a female friend to all of his work or social functions. Given the issues Gavin's last Dom had with his fame after what happened, it did make me wonder if that would also be addressed with Rene, but it's never mentioned again. This book does end on a HFN/HEA. If the author does write another book with these characters, maybe focusing on the twins, I would like to see what would happen if Gaven was recognized and no longer able to be incognito and how that would affect their relationship. In the end, even for an erotic romance, I guess I wanted a bit more plot and a few more details. The book is surprisingly low angst for the subject matter, has steamy scenes, and a sweet, quick romance.

A playboy looking for a boy finds himself enamored of a silent musician sitting on a stage in just a pair of jeans with a guitar, picking out a tune so erotic he simply must meet the man. The musician plays for his soul, but after suffering a horrific trauma in his past, he has consigned himself into the safety of his home and the care of his twin bodyguards. The only exception is when his soul screams to play, and then he goes to a local bar, but there is no introduction, no interaction with whomever is there. It’s just him and his music, soothing all the ragged edges and leaving him feeling freer for a while. That right there got me. I was sucked right in and primed for an amazing set of encounters, D/s storyline, and some healing of Gavin’s mind to go with the physical healing that has taken place over the years since his kidnapping. I’m sorry to say that I didn’t get the experience I was hoping for. I’m sorrier to say that the storyline itself never really grabbed hold of me. Neither character shows much growth, though obviously there is more on the part of Gavin than René as the latter helps encourage Gavin’s confidence in himself. Overall, it felt like the storyline was just a way to get from one sexy time to the next rather than plotted out and fleshed out. Michael writes beautiful BDSM, and this book is no exception, though it stays mostly in the D/s aspect. Chemical attraction from the moment they meet leads to hot and then hotter scenes throughout. The only secondary characters are the twins, Silas and Dev, who each take twelve hour shifts as Gavin’s bodyguard/driver and are his dearest friends. They are former police officers and take the guarding of Gavin very personally. They are also supportive, caring, and encouraging, which makes their small amount of print time very sweet. I’m rating this at three stars. It’s okay, just wasn’t my particular cup of tea. However, your mileage may vary, and I have no problem recommending this book, especially if you’re looking for some hot erotica. I voluntarily read an ARC copy of this book for Divine Magazine from Dreamspinner Press with hopes for but no obligation to provide a review. **Same worded review will appear on Divine Magazine, Dreamspinner Press, and Amazon.com.**

Rene attends a performance at a local bar and is entranced by the singer, who comes and goes without introduction. When he tries to meet the guy, a bodyguard interferes. Trying to get to contact the singer through the bar owner gets him nowhere, either. Gavin was a famous musician until he was kidnapped and tortured by a fan. Once he was rescued, he lost almost everything. He has his bodyguards who are more like family and he still makes music, but out of the public eye. He rarely leaves his apartment and trusts no one other than family and his bodyguards. I wanted to like this one more than I did. I have read many books by the author and know what to expect from his stories. I think that the problem lies in the build-up of the isolation and fear that Gavin lives under. I found it hard to understand how he could panic from a phone call, but then calmly talk to Rene, a complete stranger only a few months later. I really thought that Rene was going to have to work harder and longer to gain enough trust to spend the kind of time that they do within days of meeting. I did like that they took their time getting to know each other and their individual needs. I liked that Gavin grew and became more confident in himself. I was happy to see that his issues didn't just go away and that Rene worked with him to help him spend more time outside of his home. I think that this one is a case of it's me, not the book. I think fans of the author will enjoy this book and anyone looking for a BDSM story that is sex-heavy will, too. *** Copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie by Dreamspinner Press for my reading pleasure, a review wasn't a requirement. ***

Now he lives a life of solitude with only his “beasts” to stand by him. His twin bodyguards are his only companions, his only family. When a random encounter with Rene, a wealthy businessman turns into curiosity for Gavin, he begins to wonder if he’s ready to try again, try being a boy, try living his life again…try learning to trust. I really enjoyed seeing Gavin come back to life in this story, he grows a lot from the man we first meet. His backstory is something I would have liked to learn more about. Everything he’s been through is such a part of the man we meet that I wanted to learn more. Rene is someone that I really did like, he’s a Dom and only wants Gavin to be safe, happy, and fulfilled. This is what a Dom should be and their relationship is filled with as much sweetness as it is heat. While we’re watching two people fall in love for the first time, this has a feeling of a second chance story. It’s easy to see that these two could have missed out on each other without the care and patience that they give to both, each other and themselves.

Unless he was a dual national (possible) you can't just pick up and cross the border with nary a thought to green cards, visas, jobs, etc. But hey, maybe he was dual. I know what I'm getting when I buy these but I was hoping for at least a sliver of plot. A former attacker stalking him? Something. Oh well. I just skimmed the last 20%.

The scenes are definitely all about the meaning and importance of these moments. Inked Music, being about a BDSM relationship, obviously centers around trust. It's been a long time since Gavin's trusted anyone. It's a beautiful story of healing and recovery. Make sure you read it when you're in the mood for a lot of sex scenes though.

This doesn't mention their ages which i would've liked to get their dynamic. Includes an horrific past for Gavin, panic attacks, funny banter, hot sexy scenes, learning to sub again and more. Rene is having a drink after a tip off a performer would of note to him and his company.  On the stage alone singer and his guitar.

    Great read I love the writing of Sean Michael but this one is beyond superb. You have the story of Gavin and Rene. They have instant chemistry and much love. You get to see Gavin come back to life after a brutal kidnapping and get to see Rene their to build him up along the way. Their story is brilliant. Id love to see the twin bodyguards (Dev and Si) get their stories but I'll not be greedy. Great read I love the writing of Sean Michael but this one is beyond superb.

    This story is very powerful in the way these two men come together. Rene is drawn to Gavin from the first moment he hears him play. I like how the music seems to call out to him. It was interesting to see how Gavin can sense a safe place with Rene. I also like the fact that Rene never does anything to betray that trust. As the relationship develops we get to see the ways Rene lifts Gavin up to be a better self yet respecting where he is.

    DNF I wanted to like this book after reading the synopsis but the main character raised so many red flags I eventually gave up. The Dom in this is so pushy and unwilling to respect boundaries that I'd be nope-ing out of talking to the guy let alone doing anything more. I can forgive small things to further the plot but honestly? The Dom came off like an entitled stalker.

    Trust Again Rene was at a bar when he heard the most beautiful voice but was denied meeting the singer. Rene runs into Gavin late one night unexpectedly at the book store. Gavin was hiding from his psst but Rene is there to teach him to true and take chances. Together Rene show Gavin what love is all about yet Gavin shows Rene also what love is all about.

    A wonderful story MM masterpiece I found and fell in love with Sean Michael when he was publishing under Torquere Press. While waiting for him to shift his books over to Amazon I tried out other MM authors but found most to be lacking. Sean has a way of capturing a beautiful snapshot of a couple's journey. Every story is strong in terms of plot and character development but I truly love the consensual sexual relationship Sean writes. He showcases the beauty that is a healthy BDSM relationship that A wonderful story MM masterpiece I found and fell in love with Sean Michael when he was publishing under Torquere Press.

    Inked Music by Sean Michael Rating: 3 stars I was a little disappointed in this book. I wanted a bit more. It started out really good but then just devolved into one sex scene after another. For a couple who kept saying they were going to take it slow, their relationship progressed at a really fast pace. I also thought ended a bit abruptly. I didn’t think this was a bad book by any means, I just wanted a bit more detail about the meshing of their day to day lives.

    All the feels I love stories with Power Exchange and Sean Michael is one of best writers. This book is about a previously famous musician, Gavin, trying to survive after being kidnapped by an obsessed fan. Rene hears Gavin play one night and is intrigued. Hot chemistry and a great story.
