Author: JA Rock, Lisa Henry

Characters: Brin, Ferg
Sub-Genre: Contemporary Romance, BDSM
Brin and his Dom, Ferg, have enjoyed a fun, sexy domestic discipline relationship for years. Brin knows his role–flamboyant, fabulous brat–and Ferg knows it’s his job to play the big bad Dom, giving Brin the punishment he desperately craves. When Brin is tasked with dressing his new friend Lane Moredock for a date with Brin’s ex, Derek, he’s excited–fashion is what he knows best, and Lane is going to look stunning. But what should be a fun afternoon takes a serious turn when Brin sees that Lane has been injured, and Lane’s reluctance to tell Brin the truth about it makes Brin start to question who he is, why things didn’t work with Derek, and what people really think of him. Is he just a flittery, glittery fashion fairy? Or does he mean something more to the people he loves? And can he find a way to bring these doubts up with Ferg–or is Ferg going to have to Top his way to the bottom of this?
The Naughty Boy is a short spin off of the book, The Good Boy. In my opinion, to fully understand the dynamics between the characters in this book, you should read The Good Boy first. Although the heroes featured in this short story are not the main characters in The Good Boy, they DO play a very big part of the storyline, and believe me if you’ve read the first book and enjoyed it, you’ll love this one too.
I have to admit, I adored Brin in the first book. He’s got this self-assureness about him as well as a fun and somewhat bratty disposition that I couldn’t help but enjoy. He and his Dom, Ferg, have a very special relationship together. Both men really understand their partner’s needs, so it’s easy to have the impression that they belong together.
When Brin gives his friend, Lane, some advice, he in turns finds out a secret of Lane’s that really intrigues him. Lane’s secret soon makes Brin question his own needs and his curiousity, so before Brin knows it, he becomes fascinated with it and because of it, he acts out to Ferg to get some wanted attention.
I really liked how these two men really seemed to care about each other. Ferg is definitely a patient man, but he also knows how to give his flamboyantly, fabulous sub what he needs, AND Ferg knows how to keep Brin in line. I loved The Naughty Boy and enjoyed seeing the dynamics between Brin and Ferg. I hope both of these authors will revisit these characters in the future because I would love to read more about them. Highly Recommended!
