SUMMARY
When Jack's gambling debts catch up to him and he's about to lose both legs to his loan shark (if he's lucky), he decides to sell three years of service to the highest bidder, hoping someone is willing to pay him enough to clear his debts for good.

But is he jumping from the frying pan into the fire?

Loan sharks ready to bust kneecaps forces Jack to do something he never imagined. He is selling his body to be a sexual slave for three years. I'm hooked. I want to know what is going to happen to Jack.

Jack is very lucky as he's basically a virgin with no training and a great body. This increases his value. Frankly, I'm stunned with the amount of money paid to take Jack's anal virginity and the opportunity to train him to be a sexual submissive. Jack has a long road ahead of him since he can't even understand addressing his new owner with the appropriate title.

The story was too short for me. I believe this might be the start of a series. All we learn is Jack's purchase by JF at the auction house. The lengthy prep work prior to the auction was a little bit too much foreplay for me. Ultimately, it felt as if we are only watching act one of a play. There may be several more acts to follow, we don't know. I am hoping there will be, as I'd like to see Jack taken to the extremes. The voyeur in me wants to be there the first time he takes it up the arse. The sadist in me desires to spy upon his first intense punishment scene. The sensualist in me yearns for his first edging scene where he's brought to the edge of an orgasm over and over until he's about to break and then still denied.

This short story is the light appetizer before the main meal. I recommend this story to m/m lovers who want a little tease show.

Who says you can't buy love? Apparently Sean Michael's Shibari Auction House series proves that sometimes you can. Poor man, rich man, big box of toys – all the ingredients for a decadent night that leaves the reader breathlessly waiting for a sexy passionate encounter. And in the case of JF and Jack – apparently that magical something that happens when two people meet sometimes feels an awful lot like love.

Jack got in over his head with gambling debts. His construction job will never bail him out and he's about to meet with some ugly knee-breaking types if he doesn't find the cash fast. Jack signs on for three years of service to the highest bidder at Shibari's but never in a million years did he expect the way his life would turn around!

JF Boyles lives the life but wants that someone special to train, to keep, to love. The management of Shibari Auction House give the wealthy entrepreneur a "special" heads up and his interest in Number Sixteen is piqued – of course he plans to win this prize and once they meet, he has no doubt this tip has paid off.

Sean Michael writes the most captivating stories – packing realistic characters, clever dialogue, and great story lines with some really, sexy sex. Owing to all the details, his writing and this piece in particular feel like much longer stories. The connection between Jack and JF is immediate, pulling the reader in from those first awkward moments through to the overt bedtime seduction – immediately it is apparent that Jack is far less out, far less experienced and certainly has never bottomed or subbed. However, these issues are gently dealt with and addressed in a manner that feels open, sexy and almost liberating. In such a short piece, one can only imagine what happens next and it probably would ratchet up the heat level even further!

Sean Michael proves once again why he's on so many readers auto-buy lists. SHIBARI AUCTION HOUSE – JACK teases the reader with a new premise on an old theme and leaves the reader wanting the next installment immediately after the last page has been turned!
