Sometimes it’s just about being in the right place at the right time… with the right person.
Sarge is the short story of a burgeoning D/s relationship between two Space Marines stationed on an alien planet where an endless war drags on.
Sergeant Wilkes is a hard man with a long, celebrated military career.
Brawny, tattooed, and utterly submissive, Murphy is just an interesting diversion… until Sarge realizes he has found something truly rare.
Sarge is a sci-fi, futuristic, war, BDSM combo. It’s short, but the wording is perfect, no repetition, exactly right for bringing the setting to life in our minds. It contains plenty of action to carry the story solely and the perfect amount of sexuality to hook the reader. It’s a romance that isn’t overly sweet.
I read this when it first came out and really liked it. I loved the science fiction action and erotica again, but what struck me more when I listened to this audiobook is the relationship. The author is able to convey a deep romance with few words. The narrator portrays the guys perfectly. Sarge and Murphy are in a continuous war with sometimes near death conditions. Both are strong military men, but it’s obvious how deeply they care for one another. The outlook is bleak, and they become the light in each others lives.
