CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE! Arthritic hands and bathroom renovations aren’t sexy. Well, not usually. When Master Preston’s hands prevent him shaving himself, neither he nor Paulo expect how sexy it will be for Paulo to serve his master in a new way. With Preston’s birthday approaching, refurbishing their old bathroom to accommodate their shaving scenes gives Paulo the perfect opportunity to show his master the depth of his love.

This very short little story gives a wonderful peek into the world of lifestyle Dom/sub couples. We’re given just a tantalizing glimpse of the fact one partner has a piercing and the other a collar. That each has standard words, tones of voice, and body language they use, and that both are very much in love with the other.
FIREFLIES IN THE BATHTUB was originally published in “Toy Box: Shaving”. It’s also a continuation in the lives of Preston and Paulo, who appear in several other stories. But nonetheless it’s a complete snippet of their lives together at this time and a cute story in and of itself. The fleeting cameos we get of the minor characters, all that’s possible in such a very short length, gives them life and color. The sex is hot and fulfilling, for both the characters and the reader. I really enjoyed Paulo’s bathroom renovations. They were innovative, clever and touching.

A wonderful short story that had me racing to find the other books about these characters.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
