Finding the love of your life is hard, especially when you’re young and in the movies.

Jonathan Reynolds came to Cleveland, Ohio to break into the movies. He might not have the most orthodox methods, but he’s got the drive. He wants to be a star and shed his small town image. He’s no kid, although at twenty-one, he’s not very experienced. He’s happy with only having a few lines during a crowd scene—until he meets Sean Banks. Maybe it’s time for this virgin to come of age.

Sean Banks has been there, done that—on everything. The former child star grew up in the glare of the spotlight and beat his addiction to drugs and alcohol. But at twenty-four, he’s considered all washed up. He knows the role in this high budget action picture will catapult him back into the spotlight. He’s not ready to open his heart again, until he sees Jonathan. The young man captivates him. Can the jaded former star and the up-and-coming actor find common ground and passion between the sheets? Or will their love be relegated to the silver screen?

“You picked him?” Sean rested his hands on his hips. He hadn’t been able to get the blond-haired man out of his brain all night. When he slept, his dreams revolved around the man. The moment he saw the call sheet, his day brightened. He’d never been big on younger men, but he did have a thing for dating his co-stars.
“Yeah, I did pick him,” the assistant director said. She rolled her eyes. “You cannot possibly be attracted to him. Aren’t you and Daniel having a thing?”
“Daniel? No.” He wasn’t interested in Daniel Young. Good God, they’d known each other since the first Ducky juice drinks commercial. They’d been friends, yes, but partners? Not going to happen.
“Then what’s wrong about this one? Too immature? Victor saw him act yesterday. He said the kid was pretty good.” She flipped through the sheets on her clipboard. “He only had a couple of lines, but even I bought into what he’d said.”
“Because you like all the actors,” Sean said. “Look, if he works out for the kiss scene, then cool. If not, I’m not doing a love scene with him. I don’t care.”
“You made eyes at him at the bar last night.”
“Him?” He feigned shock. Yes, he’d made eyes at the kid. Who hadn’t? He was gorgeous. Still, he refused to jump into bed with just anyone...again. He’d been through that phase already. Rehab helped him see everything differently, especially when he’d come so close to dying. He shuddered. The overdose opened his eyes so wide. He’d been destructive and careening out of control.
“Lover boy, you’ve got to meet him and pretend to have been lovers for years. Don’t yell at me. Suck it up.”
“You’re so nice to me.” He scanned over the call sheet. They’d do the read in half an hour and the run-through shortly afterwards. Maybe they wouldn’t get along and he’d be able to get away from the kid. Sean strolled downstairs to the second apartment set.
The director and the cameramen were already on site and chatting. The kid stood patiently to the side, apparently absorbing everything Victor said. What a newbie... Sometimes challenging the director added to the value of the movie.
“I’m here,” Sean announced. “Everyone have their scripts?”
Victor narrowed his eyes. “Stop the diva shit.”
“I’m ready.” The younger man stepped forward. He offered his hand. “I’m Jonathan. I’m happy to meet you.”
“Jonathan.” He shook hands. Either Jonathan truly had manners, like he’d displayed the night before, or he was the world’s best brown-noser. “So you’re playing Owen?”
“I believe so.” Jonathan inched away from Sean. “I’ve read through the script a bunch of times. I think I’m ready.”
Sean bit back a response. Part of him wanted to say, we’ll see. The rest of him wanted to see what the kid could do.

Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback - Preseason, Week Three

The Bengals are playing the late game, so I have no idea what the score will be. I'm watching, though.

So while I'm watching, here are the Honorable Mentions: 

"Playing some center, called for the hold."
Now that sounds more like a play during group play, not football.

"Hopped into it, but lost his balance."
Ouch. Sounds like it might have fallen out.

"Got it in his hands and able to pull it out of there."
Um... usually if it's in his hands, then you're feeding it in there...wherever there is.

"If he'd have been fully extended, he thought he could've pulled that in."
Snort. Sounds like he's reeling in or out his dick.

Okay, so it's time for the funnies of the week. Be ready to smile.

"They call this route the bang eight."

"Go back deep in their own end."
Self play... odd.

"Jumped off early."
Well, that's not fun. Someone wants to finish. 

"He can shred you apart."
Wowie. Sounds like he's the man!

"drops him for a loss."
Because he was a bad date? 

"a little tight end screen."
See, he learned. Now he's screening them before he dates them.

"Able to get it up and hit it down."
Um...hmm...Harm turns him on? Just wondered.

And now for the Doozy of the Week. 

"Nice ues of your new toy over there."
Keeping with the banging, bdsm theme...he's got a new toy. Hope the toy serves him well. 

Now I'm off to watch the rest of the game. Lots of penalties and I don't like that. Grr. 

Come on Cincy. Let's do this!!

Enjoy the funnies and thanks for reading. :-)

Bottles are an interesting object for fetish play and sex. They are. The people at Everyday Kinky sure seemed to think this would be fun. How about you? Want to read more kinky stories with this bottle? Then head over to Everyday Kinky when you're done reading mine. Should be a hot time.

This story ties into an Erotic Gem story I just turned in to Resplendence Publishing. The story features Master Tony and his sub, Jake. I hope you like them. I plan on writing something much longer for them in the future.

Holding Me Up, Megan Slayer Copyright 2014

"Stick out your arms. Palms up." Master Tony rested his fists on his hips. "Show me those hands."

Jake shivered. He loved when Master Tony used the curt tone. It made him take closer notice. He stood tall with his arms out and palms to the sky.

"Nice." Master Tony picked up two bottles of Pepsi from the table. "Now we're going to play the waiting game. Yes, boy, I'm testing you." He placed one bottle in each of Jake's hands. "Don't drop them or you won't get a drink later."

"Yes, sir." Jake straightened his spine. They'd done this sort of task before. Master Tony gave him something to hold. Usually, he performed well. This time he wasn't so sure. He really wanted a drink. Damn it. That meant he'd lose focus and drop one of the glass bottles.

"You're thinking really hard." Master Tony strode around Jake and picked up a crop. "Guess I'll have to help clear your mind." He dragged the soft leather end of the crop over Jake's chest.

Holy shit. Jake braced himself as his dom peppered his ass with blows from the crop. He'd never be able to hold onto the bottles. He gripped the chilly glass tight, but the condensation made the bottles slippery. His arms ached and he kept holding his breath. Fuck. One of the bottles wobbled. He clutched the glass, but his best effort wasn't going to work. The bottle slipped from his fingers.

"Relax." Master Tony grabbed the Pepsi before the bottle hit the floor. "Holding that was hard. Drop your arms."

Jake wrapped his fingers around the other bottle and tucked his arms tight to his sides. "Yes, sir. Thank you for the challenge, sir."

"Drink up." Master Tony clinked his bottle against Jake's. "That was only the first challenge and we've got a long night to play."

Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback - Preseason, Week 2

It's Monday, which means it's time for Football Quotes!! The preseason is fun. Prospects, good deals...raw deals...and slightly cheaper seats. Speaking of cheap seats and the peanut gallery...

Here are the Honorable Mentions from Week One!

"In the hole, he made it work."
Well, isn't that good? He knows how to do his job!

"Someone who is long and lean and can run with the tight ends."
Um... doesn't that make him a tight end, too? Or does he have a bubble butt?

"He beat tight ends down the middle as much as he could."
Can't fault him for giving it the old college try. He might have been worn out from all that beating.

"Bigger guy on the inside to take over."
Where is the little guy? On the outside?

"Nice rhythm. Ball's out right now and out of the pocket."
He's been practicing with music. Good for him!!

Now the funnies this week came from two different games. Packers V Rams and the Ravens V the Cowboys. Both were good games and brought lots of laughs. 

"The stiff arm on the back end."
He does like 'em stiff and on his back end. 

"Nice hole on the left side."
Um... are they supposed to have holes on the sides? Or are they side-by-side?

"The back end is complimenting the front end."
I like when they work together. It's sexy!

"Really good coverage on the back end."
See! He used enough lube and rubber!

"Catches swing passes and dump-offs."
Sounds like a crazy dating service for those who can't get dates.

"Nothing there that time."
Aw. I'm sorry.

"He is good."
Glad you agree. 

"He's the one who actually dislodged the ball."
Then he must be good.

And now for the Doozy of the Week. Oy. You've got to read it to believe it.

"Need to slide over and let one of your buddies have a great weekend."
Depending on who is doing the sliding and where he's sliding to, yes, that would be a great weekend. Can we have pictures?

So the Bengals didn't have a good week. Andy Dalton was fantastic in his time out on the field and they made some good plays. Hopefully that translates into the rest of the season. 

Check back for week three highlights!!

Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback - Preseason, Week 1

It's time for the Preseason Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback report. 
I got to watch the Browns V Lions game live and the Patriots V Washington game later on. There were some great funnies this week and I can't wait to bring them to you.

But first, the Honorable Mentions from the Hall of Fame game!!

"They're going to give it to him."
Give him what? Is it a menage?

"Big-bodied guy."
Ooh! Does he look like Alcide?

"A little cut in the hole."
Ouch! That sounds really painful!

"He's a load."
Or does he have a load? Just asking.

"Trying to jam that one in."
Again, ouch. Jamming? If they're up for it, then okay, but sounds rougher than I like.

"Getting his hand in there."
In where? Curious minds want to know.

Weren't those fun? I thought so. Now for the Funnies of the Week for Preseason Week One. Boy, were there some oddities. Here we go!

"Dumping it in."
There is a lot of things going IN places, but no one says where the IN is.

"At third down, they do not get off."
Aw. That's a shame. 

"Coming against the fullback and he's going to win that every time."
Oh, so it's a contest? What are they coming with?

"Pressure coming into the face of the quarterback."
Pressure with what? Is it messy?

"Do I go back in again or is it in time?"
This was asked of a player and it sounds kinky. If he or she likes it, then go in again.

"Rubber roll-out."
Ah, it's the time to get the condoms out!

"Eats up two bodies."
Um...what does? I'm scared.

Now it's time for the Doozy of the Week. There were some great ones, but this one came from the Patriots and Redskins game. I'm still impressed they said it. 

"Only place you can put it. Then he extends himself, tucks it in and protects the ball."
He's talking about protecting the football, but the first thing I thought of was protecting the testicles. Yeah, my mind went there. 

The Bengals didn't win the first preseason game, but that's not terrible. The big cats didn't come out quite yet. When it's time, they will. I have faith. Still, a win would be good. 

Stay tuned for next week and thanks for reading!

The Return of the Football Funnies and the Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback

I watched the Hall of Fame game and I have to say I was relieved football is back on. Deep breath. I'm a happy girl now. Football... Yes, I know this is on Sunday, but I've got the first preseason game on tap for Monday. 

Now, I don't have any honorable mentions from last week as I decided to start over new with the new season. Grin. 

Now here are my football funnies from the Hall of Fame Game!

"A little swing pass and a slick move."
Sounds like someone's trying to make a pass at someone else.

"A lot of interceptions on the back end."
Hmm...Maybe he needs a little more time to learn?

"If he doesn't like it, he'll flick it off and do what he wants."
At least he knows what he wants. That's nice.

"I like these big guys here."
Ah. So we have a lot of big guys. Nice. Double nice.

"Getting his mitt on it."
Um...what is he getting his mitt on? Clarify?

"He's gonna hang onto a few things."
To do what? What's he hanging on to?

"Takes over at the line."
A man who takes charge. Cool!

And now the doozy of the game. I'd call it the doozy of the week, but there was only one game, so it's the game. 

"A big, strong guy and a little too much for him."
Kinky. I see we've found his limits. Let's push 'em. Grin.

It's the preseason, so there is still time to improve. I'm pulling for my Bengals to make it into the post season and then to actually win a game once they get there. That's my hope.

Stay tuned for the thoughts on the first preseason game for the browns and a new feature, the factoid of the week.
