Those (sexy) Boys

It’s no secret that I’ve always had a special place in my heart for fictional men and women.  Jareth from Labyrinth was practically responsible for my sexual awakening–“Just fear me, love me, do as I say and I will be your slave.”  Alanna from the Lioness Quartet.  Wesley Crusher from Trek Next Gen.  Faith from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  Daemon from the Jewels series.

And Sandy….

I loved the novella “Those Girls” by Alison Tyler, and I fell especially hard for Sandy–bisexual, dominant, and sexy as hell.  When Alison said that there was a sequel coming out, I volunteered to be an advanced reader for “Those Boys.”

Why does Sandy do it for me so well?

There’s something about that word.  Hurt.  I could have said, “punish.”  I could have said, “spank.”  Nice, light-hearted BDSM terms.  But I didn’t want those, and neither did Rem.

Rem is such a pretty little peacock.  Sandy needs to muss him, to hurt him.  And for one night, he does.  Then Rem doesn’t come back…

You don’t walk away from that type of honest.  Not when it’s everything you’ve ever wanted.


There had not been a word.  Not a phone call.  Was I losing my touch?

Seeing Sandy question himself is almost as erotic as when he exudes enough confidence to drown you.

I won’t spoil the ending–for that you need to read the book.


You guys know that Alison’s writing is some of my favorite erotica.  But even among her many books and characters, Sandy demands I sit up and pay attention.   Or bend over and beg for it.

What I really loved about “Those Boys” was getting a peek behind the Dom’s Dom exterior.  We learn that Sandy has submitted–to learn what it’s like to be the submissive…and that peek is so tantalizing.  I really hope that the next book in the series will give us even more of a peek under the skin.  And that it will be longer—Alison, can we please get a full length novel with Sandy?


“Those Boys” by Alison Tyler is published by Go Deeper Press.
