Tad’s weekend started out like any other; hitting a college frat party with a handful of buddies. But just as the evening hits its peak, things get up-ended fast. Ditched by his drunken, trolling friends, Tad winds up getting hustled by three jocks playing poker. Now he’s forced to pay his dues in the most outlandish of ways; accepting a couple broken bones or spending an hour with his victors’ favorite flogger, Scott. But the guy’s tantalizing torture quickly proves to be the least of Tad’s worries… and the kickoff to a night of raw, shocking lust.
Experience the graphic, minute-by-minute account of that hour spent at the hands of Tad’s insatiable tormentor. Addicting chemistry lights the stage as Scott ignites Tad’s reluctant desires into a frenzy of forbidden need.

Warning: contains elements of dub-con, light bdsm, as well as explicit gay sex.

Tad could feel his jaw ticking, even as his cheeks reheated. “Fine.” He shucked off everything but his boxers, then glared at the obstacle looming in front of him. “What the hell is this thing, anyway?”
“My roommate and I have lovingly coined it: the Wall of Confliction.”
Tad quirked a brow. “You seriously call it that?”
Scott’s tone turned wry. “We most certainly do.”
“Why the fuck for?”
“Mm. That’d spoil the surprise.”
“Whatever,” Tad scowled, still not facing the guy. But the sound of feet padding closer had his blood pressure climbing fast. Not that his heart wasn’t already pounding.
“Boxers, too, Tad,” Scott murmured in his ear. “I’m to give you the full-body treatment.”
Tad groaned. Even his ass was going to get whipped? Cursing under his breath, he ditched the last of his clothes. “There. Happy?”
A low, dark chuckle. “Oh, shy boy, you have no idea.”


Stop calling me that.”
“Stop playing the part.”
Tad bristled, but then stiffened as Scott took his wrist and lifted it up… to a buckle restraint attached to a resin-coated chain. It must’ve been tucked in the wall’s upper right corner. Swiftly, Scott secured it into place.
Tad struggled not to freak out. “Is this really necessary? I agreed not to leave.”
“It’s necessary,” Scott assured, doing the same with his other arm. He dropped into a squat to hit Tad’s ankles next, firmly easing them apart.
“For shit’s sake,” Tad groused. “My fucking feet, too?”
“Mm Hmm.”
Tad glowered, even as his heart rate rose to jackhammer status.
Ankles secured, Scott made a satisfied sound. Like a deep purr of pure male appreciation. Tad stilled, not sure how he felt about that… or the big palms now moving up the back of his legs.

Straight boy takes a flogging and a f-king by a Dom because he had to by his friends. What he get was emensily sensual and nothing like he experienced before. Short read and very detailed erotica. Great job Kora!

I don’t buy Novellas, I mean never, ever!! I don’t buy books unless they are at least 250 pages!!

I read the reviews and thought that I would see what they were all about, this book cannot be as good as everyone is saying! You know what????

OMG!!!!!!!! You are killing me girl!! I kept having to take breaks just to breath!!!!!!!!!!!! Typically I would read this book in a hour. NOPE!! Apparently breathing is important to my body so it made me take a break!

This is erotica at its best!! You want a fun, beyond hot, and trust me I mean HOT!!!! This is the book you want to read!!

This book was recommended by some die-hard fans of the m/m genre and I knew they would not steer me in the wrong direction. Thanks peeps!
Scott and Tad singed my eyebrows completely off. No lie people I draw them on now. Their story is full of yummy hotness but most importantly they are realistic. I enjoyed their banter just as much as their sex. This is a must read!

Tad is attending a frat party with a bunch of his friends and this is where it all starts. His drunken friends ditch Tad and now he ends up getting hustled by three beefy jocks at a poker game. Now the fun or horror for Tad begins as he must pay these jocks not with money but with either a few broken bones or a session of flogging with Scott. The least of Tad's worries is not the taunting he has to endure by the jocks but the lustful feelings he endures from Scott.

I loved the three jocks and the quick and funny banter between them and Tad was so much fun, I just wished they got more involved. Tad keeps protesting that he is straight but I question that as you will read he does seem to eventually enjoy the session with Scott. The conversations between Tad and Scott was so funny and you can tell that there is a trust factor even though Tad doesn't feel it at the beginning. I have to say I loved how the author brought us on a discovery of the flogging world and wrote it in such a way that it was not too intense but just enough. For Tad this was only about paying off his debt and getting the hell out of there but that does seem to change, for Scott it was more about the pleasure that this would give both men. This book was written as a scene but in all honestly it felt much more than just a scene. Now the big question will be, can Tad stay away since he is paid in full or will he be coming back to Scott to take this adventurer even further.

This is an amazing book. I sadly read it the first time as a plagiarized story on a fan fiction site and loved it. Once I discovered the true writer I quickly downloaded it to my Kindle to enjoy again. It was just amazing the second time reading it with the true character names. This story pushes so many of my buttons. It has hot, steamy male on male erotica with some BDSM thrown in. I love how almost cute "shy boy" Tad is and how Scott slowly seduces him and makes him crave more and more. It kept my full attention from beginning to end and left me craving more of the two boys. Every hit of the whip, every pleasure filled groan from Tad made me feel like I was right there. If you want something hot and steamy and love some male on male fun give this book a try. My wife promised to buy me the entire set for my birthday and I look forward to reading all of them.

I wasn't sure exactly what to expect from this book, but what I got was a book that was so hot it nearly ignited my Kindle! This first book doesn't contain a lot of plot, but the chemistry between the two characters and the scene that ends the book is one of the hottest I've ever read. The author takes her time in describing the scene, using all the senses to describe the details, and the result is a wicked hot tale that I had to reread again almost immediately. I usually never buy books if I can get them free through KU, but I actually bough the rest of the books in this series, and I was not disappointed!

About the Author

Born and raised in the Northern Virginia, Kora Knight has always loved to read, but it wasn't until her preteen years that she discovered her deep-seated love for writing. With published literary teachers and play writers in the family DNA, it probably shouldn't have come as a big surprise.
Her road to "authorhood" started with her involvement in social book forums, then trying her hand in literary role-playing. That, in turn, led to becoming a fervent online independent writer, which ultimately sparked her desire to share with the larger world her impassioned stories of love, adventure, and sensual wonderment. Her most recent delight? Glorious erotic gay romance.
Having recently finished the second installment of her Nira Chronicles series, Zercy, she will be continuing on with a handful of other projects, including the next Upending Tad spin-off for Breck & Kai, on target to release end of summer 2018.
