In this smoking hot tale of m-m love, the author spins a mythic story of Tom, who falls hard for an older man he meets in a gym with mixed feelings of fear and attraction.
Meanwhile, the older man puts Tom through a sexual initiation involving BDSM and brutal, sweaty sex. In the process, Tom's hatred of his own body and gay urges is transformation in very positive ways.
Musclebound is a story that takes Tom from innocence to experience, ordeal to triumph.
"Laura Antoniou ... elevates the genre of SM erotica ... in storyline, character development, passion and humor. ...the dialogue achingly real, and the sex is as hot as you'd ever hope for. ... these books are the next best thing to being there." --Kate Bornstein, author, My Gender Workbook
