Review: Sublime: Collected Shorts by Rachel Haimowitz


Sublime:  Collected Shorts by Rachel Haimowitz

Published: Dec. 14, 2010
Words: 19050 (approximate)

Description:  Broadway darling Nicky Avery gives commanding performances on stage, but when he comes home at night, it's Devon Turner who commands him. Devon—that's "Sir" to Nicky, of course—owns Nicky heart and soul. And neither of them could be happier about that.

Sublime explores the gifts of submission and domination, Devon and Nicky's ultimate expression of love and trust. The ten short stories in this collection range from sweet and sensual to hot and hardcore, from cross-dressing to knife play, and so much more.

Dom or sub, curious beginner or 24/7 lifestyler, the stories in Sublime will tease and tantalize, arouse and thrill. And don't mind Devon and Nicky . . . they like to be watched anyway.

(Note: This book contains explicit M/M sexual acts and various BDSM practices.)

My Review:


This was a very good collection of BDSM shorts.  Each was well written, emotionally intense with great characters.  I was expecting a more traditional “short story” format, which, this was not, however the way the collection is put together really worked for me.  Instead, of short stories, I’d say  it’s more “glimpses” into the D/s life of Sir and Nicky rather than “story”, bits and pieces of the characters and their kinks that cover the entire spectrum from mild to dark and infused with everything from humor to extreme intensity.  I was very impressed with the spectrum the author was able to cover in this collection.  I would strongly recommend this one to anyone who likes to read M/M BDSM stories.
