Being apart isn’t easy and Miles returns home from a business trip, just in time for Zeke’s latest big gallery opening. The theme of Bondage is everywhere, tickling and arousing the senses and the men don’t stay long, deciding instead to spend time with each other. More importantly for Miles is the realization that he’s ready to take a different step in their sexual life—at least for tonight—and he can’t wait any longer.  

Switch in the latest in a trio of short stories released by Clare London following Zeke and Miles, who were introduced in True Colors. While reading it would be helpful, it’s not imperative but I do recommend you read the other shorts, Ambush and Payback first.  

Of the shorts, Switch is definitely my favorite, showing the depth and progression of Miles and Zeke’s love and the strength of their committed relationship. Seeing the switch in who’s the dominant in the bedroom, if only for one night, changes their established balance. It’s nice to see Miles able to let down his guard and show Zeke a needy side for a change. 

Overall, the story is well-written, with vivid descriptions and a tight focus that pulled me into the story on the first page. The emotions are high and while there’s still an intense bedroom scene, this one is more about feelings—and ultimately trust. I really like these guys together and the author’s done a great job showing how much they care for each other. It’s a real keeper. Enjoy.
