Whips & Tricks: Retro Review

Home for six months after an undercover assignment at BDSM club Testing Leather, Homicide detective Brian Hurley can't shake the memories, or the feelings he developed, for undercover partner Griffin McManus.

Griffin's having his own problems in the aftermath of the job, and he shows up on Brian's doorstep, hoping one last night together will allow him to put it all behind him.

Will reconnecting as themselves help them let go, or will they find everything they need in each other?


Breaking Cover by Sean Michael was a wonderfully erotic story steeped in BDSM and emotion.  Brian and  Griff  were policemen working  a deep undercover stint at Twisted Leather BDSM Club.  Both men, very macho with the need to be in charge, revealed Griff playing submissive to Brian’s Dom.  Griff soon recognized that the role play had now become his reality as he fell hard for the Homicide officer while session playing.

Upon completion of the assignment, both men attempted to return to some semblance of normalcy in their lives, but soon ascertained the emotional scars and bonds ran wide and deep. Brian and Griff yearned for a life together; in love, lust and D/s. 

Sean Michael, as always, delivered a story filled with emotion. The angst radiated through the pages as Griff dealt with his submissiveness and his inability to function sans Brian. The bond and dependency they formed was very convincing and real as each experienced emotional turmoil after separation.  The relationship was not unhealthy as they strove for mutual satisfaction, both in their respective roles.

The sex was hot and sizzling as the reader was treated to lust, love and kinky sex. As an author, Sean Michael pushed the limits of BDSM without being raunchy or distasteful.
