Sam reviews ‘Floggers Slave Auction’ by H.C. Brown. Published by Luminosity Publishing LLP on May 18th, 2016 and is 84 pages long.
Why I read this book: It is different genres week and I had picked BDSM as my theme. After reading the synopsis it sounded like I would enjoy it.
Paul Martin’s fantasy to lose his virginity in public to a Dom becomes a reality when he decides to enter a slave auction at Floggers BDSM Club.
His nerve crashes to subzero when the highest bidder is the feared edge playing Dom, Nash Mage.
Nash, bitter from a breakup with his mindfucking sub is looking for down and dirty sex and a pup to control. He doesn’t expect his auction prize and vanilla virgin, Paul, to earn his respect and melt his frozen heart.

I am a big fan of BDSM themed books. Floggers’ Slave Auction by H.C. Brown was shorter than I prefer, but that didn’t make it any less enjoyable. I have to say that I didn’t like Nash very well at first. The way he treated the subs isn’t the way I feel a good Dom should be. That being said, I think he was heartbroken and didn’t know how to get past it. I feel this way because he was the opposite with Paul. He was a caring and considerate Dom. However, there are a couple more scenes that made me want to slap him for his actions and his need to be respected at Floggers.
Paul I adored. He is so sweet and just wants a good Dom so he can let himself go. He instantly fell for Nash but was scared to trust his heart to him.
Knowing that Floggers’ Slave Auction is a BDSM themed book I figured there would be a lot of hot sex and implements being used. What I wasn’t expecting was the way Nash did a complete 180 with Paul. He became very loving, which surprised me. It was like they were a perfect match and brought the best of each other out. The sex scenes were hot but it was more than just domination and submitting, it was love.
As for the secondary characters, they didn’t add a whole lot to the story in my opinion. I would like to see more of Jim. He seems like a sweet sub. I loved how he was there for Paul. There are also a couple Doms who have pinged my interest and I would like to know how their stories play out.
Floggers’ Slave Auction is my second book written by H.C. Brown. It is a short, fast-paced book. Therefore, I was finished quickly. The story flows well. The scenes are described with great detail, making it easy to picture as I read. The storyline and characters were intriguing and kept me hooked till the end. As I mentioned above, I wasn’t fond of Nash and how he initially treated the subs. It was nice to see the change that Nash makes once he and Paul get together. In my opinion both Paul and Nash grew a lot and were better individually as well as a couple.
This is actually the second book in the series. I wasn’t aware of this till after I finished reading. Therefore, it can be read as a standalone but you may look at book one and want to start with it.
If you like BDSM and are looking for a short read, then you would most likely enjoy Floggers’ Slave Auction by H.C. Brown.
