Kurt’s hasn’t worked at the Hammer long and he’s a little shy, but he longs for a Master of his own. He’s waiting tables the night of the annual Christmas charity auction and gets talked into acting as a substitute when a sub that’s signed up for the event gets caught in traffic. Kurt’s scared, thrilled and afraid no one will bid on him.

Master August has watched Kurt since his first shift but has yet to approach the timid man. Learning he’s taking another sub’s place gives August the perfect opportunity to test their compatibility. All he has to do is win Kurt’s auction.

Top Bidder is the new release in Sean Michael’s Hammer series.  I always look forward to the annual Christmas charity auction stories. This one is no different. It’s fun, entertaining, light-hearted, gives just enough details and provides a brief peek at several earlier characters.

Some of the previous Christmas stories have featured established couples but this one focuses on a new one. Kurt is shy and such a sweetie, afraid and asking about a ‘pity bid’ that you can’t help but smile. He’s new to the BDSM scene---very new—so August has lots to teach him and since Kurt wants to learn—them getting together is easy. It helps that they have great chemistry too.  

Yes, it’s a fluffy holiday piece but it’s just what I wanted at this time of year. That doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy getting to know August and Kurt or seeing the beginning of their relationship. So, if you enjoy the Hammer books and shy subs learning about what they need, give this Christmas Hammer release a try.
