Blurb: Grant Maxwell, aka Max, wakes to find his coffeepot has died in the night. Not one who can start his day without his favorite brew, he heads to the local coffee shop. Max finds something even more appealing than caffeine in the form of twenty-six-year-old hottie Aiden James. For the first time in his life, well-established, confident and respected Dom Max finds himself sputtering and unsure in the face of Aiden’s charms.
Aiden lives with three roommates, works a dead-end job, and isn’t sure where his life is heading. That is until he meets Max. Max introduces him to a foreign yet intriguing lifestyle, and they soon discover they have something more than mutual attraction in common.
A shared kink is one thing, but Aiden’s past vanilla sexual experiences as well as his fear of losing himself in Max may keep Aiden from experiencing his fantasy. Max has an obstacle of his own to overcome. He must somehow figure out how to help Aiden explore his submissive side when, for the first time in his life, he’s head over heels in love.
Review: Pony is the third book in SJD Peterson’s Guards of Folsom series, and while the series on a whole is full of strong, sexy Doms and their boys, Pony is my favourite of the books, and I very much enjoyed all seven hours and thirteen minutes worth of listening to it.
In it we meet Grant “Max” Maxwell, successful and confident Dom, and Aiden, the young barista who Max definitely wants to make his. We get to tag along with our MCs as they explore Aiden’s introduction to the D/s lifestyle, and Max’s struggle to balance the wants and needs of his relationship. Plus, it was nice to hear snippets of characters from books past, and see how life is treating them.
I’m new to the wonderful world of audiobooks, and I think Rusty Topsfield did a great job narrating Pony. However, it took a while for me to really get into the book because of the way Max’s voice sounded. Don’t get me wrong, there wasn’t anything wrong with it, it just wasn’t how Max sounded to me when I read the book.
That aside, though, I love sexy manlove, and getting to hear it in this book was a big win!
