Pain and Revenge, has now been re-published by Silver Publishing. 
If you like stories with sex, S&M, CIA, and Soviet type bad guys, you'll love this story.

Rookie CIA agent James Elliot is sent to his first assignment in London, where he finds out that not only does the CIA know that he's gay, but that he's been brought in on an assignment precisely for that reason. James is thrown into a situation where he must seduce a Russian GRU Agent and find out what he's doing in England.

Spankings are the sadistic Russian's specialty and the question is...Can James Elliot hold out to finish the job? The novella reaches a satisfactory conclusion as the answer to the question.

Warning: male/male forced sex scene that is intricate to the plot.

This book is pretty blunt.  It gets right to the gritty of the situation.  I guess I'd classify it as a spy/BDSM storyline, but it's more than just that.  It's very frank, straightforward, no suppressing the brutal details.  They aren't told in a gory way, just no incidentals are left out.

There is a very descriptive sodomy scene that is explained in such a way that the reader knows exactly what happened and how it felt.  No inessential emotion holds back the characters.  They state the facts as is and just do their jobs.

So on the BDSM side, there are the above mentioned bits and several beatings which require medical attention.  On the spy side, there are the secret meetings and plans.  Everything seems quite legit.  The author is a vet and gay so I guess he knows his material.

I appreciate the author writing in a way that makes sense and isn't over dramatized.  Although I know this story isn't for everyone, I enjoyed it.  Also, I'm sure it is probably more realistic than many BDSM or spy books.

  1. Toni:
    Thanks for the review. It is a different type of book; one that is more real in some spots than you realize. Thank you for taking the time to write about "Pain and Revenge." I have another book coming out shortly called, "House of discipline," set in Berlin Germany. You might like that one too. :)
