Going All In 

By Thomas Briar


Publication date: January 15th 2019
Genres: Erotica, Romance


Young, beautiful, and college educated, Lena hides startling secrets. Secrets that set her apart from everyone else and make it almost impossible for her to find true love.

Slightly older than Lena, Trevor’s a handsome and dominant man. The kind with a successful career, a residence of his own, and a secure future. But he’s keeping startling secrets as well.

On their very first date, they’ll bare their souls to each other, indulge in sizzling hot sex, and make an unbreakable emotional connection.

But great sex alone can’t lead two lovers to their very own happily ever after. Can it?



“First, you must see the master bedroom.” Trevor presented a devious smile, pointing toward double doors of opaque glass leading out of the living area. The doors were conspicuously closed. “I want you to fully understand what I seek from you.”

Lena cut her gaze toward the doors, arousal soaring along with the hope that she’d finally found a man who believed the bedroom should also be a playroom. No distinction ever to be made between the two.

“Whatever you want.” She walked over to swing open the doors, immediately delighting in what she saw.

The room appeared spacious, with a vaulted ceiling in stark white and plush black carpet covering the floor. The walls were a bright crimson on three sides—the forth wall that should have allowed a view of the city was opaque glass.

Twisting around to take it all in, she saw against one of the crimson walls rested a large bed bordered by matching nightstands. A mirror reflected the bed’s image from the ceiling above it. A sex swing hung by a chain from the ceiling beam in the center of the room. A Saint Andrew’s cross was set against the opposite wall next to a curio cabinet of transparent glass that held all kinds of sex toys. Lastly, a stripper pole took up one corner next to a doorway leading into what she presumed was the bathroom.

“Hmmm,” she murmured in appreciation. “A bedroom fit for a true connoisseur. I’m impressed.”

Trevor said nothing, walking over to one of the nightstands to pick up a small remote. Pressing a button, the opaque windowed wall became transparent and the lights of the city below them twinkled for as far as the eye could see. Then, after a few seconds, it changed back.

Lena raised eyebrows, not understanding why he’d ever want to obscure such a beautiful view.

“No worries. It’s set on a five second delay,” he addressed the unspoken question. “Any voyeurs looking on will simply have to suffer between transitions until they get another glimpse of you,” Trevor explained, setting the remote down. “I can take you home now, if you want?”



Author Bio:

Edgy and provocative in his erotic writings, Thomas Briar strives to exalt the virtues of love and lust in every story he creates. To date, he's written a wide variety in the subgenres of New Adult, Contemporary, Historical, Interracial, and BDSM. He also takes great pride in the fact that he writes the type of erotic stories that twist and turn as the hero and heroine strive wholeheartedly to get exactly what they want from each other.

Which means most of his stories run on the hotter side of the erotica genre with his characters indulging in the type of sex that some would call smutty. For, without a doubt, writing scorching hot sex scenes is Thomas' absolute favorite thing about writing erotica. Well, that, and making sure his characters end up living happily ever after.
