Waiting for his lover, Joey, to come home from his deployment in Afghanistan is making Grady cranky. It’s been nearly two years since they’ve been together and it looks like Valentine’s Day might be the earliest they see each other. It makes for a lonely holiday season, but Oliver’s keeping him busy helping with the Hammer’s annual Christmas Charity Auction. But there’s a special surprise waiting for him on auction night…one he’ll likely never forget. 

Christmas Homecoming is release 12.1 in Sean Michael’s Hammer series. It’s another fun and entertaining short, just what I’ve come to expect from an annual holiday story. That this one involves a returning serviceman who happens to be a sub in an established relationship just makes this release all the more poignant. It also allows them to delve immediately into the problems Joey has on returning…issues only Grady, as his Dom, can help with. 

The author did a wonderful job showing Grady’s loneliness for Joey, affecting his entire life. This also allows the entrance of Jack and Oliver, bringing in the beloved Hammer characters, grounding the story and pulling Grady into the auction action. I love the surprise twist at the auction and the reaction of both Grady and Joey on seeing each other. As you can imagine there’s lots of blistering hot sex in this story of love reunited but that doesn’t mean that sub Joey doesn’t get the discipline he wants and needs. So, if you’re in the mood for a BDSM story filled with love between established partners, give this well written holiday gem a try.
