Title: The Skinny on Love
Author: Fyn Alexander
Publisher: Loose Id
Genre: BDSM, Fetish, Contemporary
Thirty-seven-year-old fitness fanatic and gym owner John Moorcroft has always known he was gay, and he has always had a problem admitting it, even to himself. After a failed attempt at a relationship with Roslyn, his long-time female BFF, he knows he must take a hard look at himself. The first thing John does is to try to find out what happened to his mother, who disappeared when he was four years old. Roslyn recommends Sky Cook Investigations to help him. The first time John meets Sky he finds himself extremely attracted to the man’s bear-like physique and eager-to-please manner.
Sky Cook, thirty-six years old, is sweet, mild mannered, and desperately in need of a health regime. He knows he needs to lose weight but is thwarted by issues from his childhood. Sky also wants a loving, yet dominant man to direct him, so when John suggests they barter services, the perfect storm for a relationship unfolds.
This is the first work I have read by this Fyn Alexander and I really enjoyed this book.
I did not like John at first but I immediately felt a connection to Sky.
John was in serious denial that he is gay but could not stay away from having sex with men, he is such a rude, mean person that it would take a sweet, gentle person like Sky to bring out his gentler side.
Through the journey to find Johns mother these two men come together, truths are found out about both John and Sky that just broke my heart,
This is a very well written story with a BDSM twist to it that added just enough spice to keep this story compelling.
I recommend this book and I will be looking for more works by Fyn Alexander.
