If I have a soaking-wet-panties-shelf here on GR, this book would definitely be on it. Therefore 5 Brilliant Lip-Smacking Stars for this high quality collection of BDSM erotica.

It's a must read for all TPE (Total Power Exchange) fans. Especially those who loves good doses of manhandling and masculinity in their BDSM stories.

Contained within its pages are Master/Slave Fantasies that shows us how consensual slavery could be a very fulfilling and erotic experience. Apart from that it also enlightens us on what makes a dom or a sub tick.


STORY #1:  Collared at the Dog Pound - Sub's POV

An exciting lost-pup-finds-a-master story.
Said pup quickly found himself in a hot mess of pain and pleasure under the firm hands of his new found master. The ending plastered a wide smile on my face.

Story codes/tags: D/S, Dog Slave, Watersports, Rough Sex, Masturbation, Anal Sex, Hot Manhandling, Breathplay

RATING: 4 stars


 STORY #2:  Hard Day's Reward - Sub's POV

A master kept his slave under stringent orgasm control and denied him release even when he was mercilessly stimulated. The master then rewarded his obedient slave with a fresh juicy boy. It's the best reward for the slave as he used to be a Top before submitting as a full-time slave now. He especially enjoys breaking boys with attitude issue.

This story made me want to crawl into the book to play along with the guys. I wanted to own that juicy ass! It was such a pleasure watching a slave turned into a full-fledged master displaying his prowess at owning a cocky young slave's ass. Expertly turning him into true boymeat, whimpering and begging to be fucked. The boy moans so sweetly and so eagerly it's like music to my ears.

I would give this story a 10 stars if I could. It's one of the hottest story in this sexy anthology.

RATING: 10 rewarding stars


STORY #3:  Goodnight, My Slaveboys - Dom's POV

A master who owns a total of 5 slaves. Every night he would tenderly tucks each one of his securely bound slaves to bed. They are all perfectly well trained loyal slaveboys who eats cums like ice cream and live to serve.

This story is rather tender and soft. I liked it but it wasn't as hot as the other stories here.

Story codes/tags: Various Bondage, Dog Slave, Handjob, Blowjob, Anal Sex

RATING: 3 stars


STORY #4:  First-Time Slave - Sub's POV

A submissive guy first foray into master/slave relationship. He gets a taste of it at the hands of a non-nonsense master. He was put into strict bondage with a touch of sensory deprivation. Robbed of sight and ability to communicate, the sub found himself at total mercy of his master and loving the mingling of fear and excitement.

The emotions and feelings of the first time slave experiencing his first bondage experience was clearly translated. I appreciate that very much. That hooding scene got me so hot and bothered due the the level of anxiety the new slave exuded. It was electrifying to me.

Story codes/tags: Bondage, Hooding, Gag, Chains, D/S, Partial Sensory Deprivation, Anal Sex, Orgasm Denial

RATING: 4 stars


STORY #5:  The Piss Mummy - Dom's POV

Story number 5 involved a submissive-piss-worshiping-boy and a master who gets off on bestowing his golden streams on deserving boys.

We would get tight bondage and some manhandling and of course jets and jets of warm you-know-what on you-know-where. Basically, there isn't much happening here just someone drowning in piss and some jacking off. Of course if you have golden shower kink, then it's a different thing altogether.

RATING: 3 stars


STORY #6:  Five Bucks a Swat - Sub's POV

MC's master loves tight bubble butts for his spanking kink. Slave boy Spanky is fortunate his prized butt received ample attention from his master. One night master decided to flaunt Spanky's delicious tight buns for the benefit of charity.

Story codes/tags: Bondage, Spanking, Handjob

RATING: 3 stars


 STORY #7:  The Executioner’s Boy (Medieval times) - Sub's POV

A farm boy was obsessed with an executioner and kept going into town just to ogle the man even if it means having to watch the executions of unfortunate souls. The boy was drawn to the power held by the executioner. He was also fascinated with fear itself. He is very much like a fearless little moth fluttering closer and closer to the burning hot flame until self-immolation.

When the boy finally caught the eyes of his idol things took a nasty turn and the boy found himself under the full domination of the man he had worshiped all this while. He was steadily broken down by this demanding man who now selfishly calls himself his master.

This is another story I am happy to give 10 shiny stars. You need dark and gritty in your erotica to enhance your sexual excitement? This is it. This is the story for you. It would drown you in pleasure of total domination over a man and also offer sexual ignition of full submission. The epic twisted love in this one makes me tingle all over. Stockholm was out to play....
The man in the black hood became the focus of my existence. He was my captor, my kidnapper, my king, my god, and my family all at once — the one human being I had contact with and therefore the one on which I lavished all my emotions. I hated him, despised him . . . yet loved him, too.
The Executioner’s Boy has a psychological appeal to it. The reconditioning of the farm boy was fascinating to follow yet quite disturbing to watch. The executioner is an extremely harsh master. Consider yourself warned.

RATING: 10 friggin stars


STORY #8:  Fucking Master’s Lover - Sub's POV

Another orgasm denial master who loves to sexually torture his slave boy by fucking and jerking him off constantly but not letting him come. This slave boy is a bit of a switch. He has a dominant side strong enough to top. With balls bursting full of mancream, there's no chance of him ever saying no to a sexy man proffering himself so wantonly even if it was his master's lover. 

This is fucking with the element of danger and guilt. An added thrill to the adulterous, sexually frustrated pair.

RATING: 3 stars


STORY #9:  Home-Made Lube - Sub's POV

An on loan slave is about to be stuffed turkey. A meaty foot long sausage stuffed turkey. And it isn't even Thanksgiving yet. Thing is one important ingredient for preparation was missing and the master was getting really annoyed. What would happen to this poor slave?

Uhmm that home-made lube is very organic. But doesn't that defeat the purpose of having the latex on?

Story codes/tags: Bondage, Butt rimming, Handjob, Anal Sex

RATING: 3 stars


STORY #10:  The Horny Houseguest - Sub's POV

Horny dog boy looking forward to being plowed by an equally horny guest with the blessings of his owner. The owner even graciously offered a selective of toys for his guest to play with his dog boy.

I like how pet boy behaves much like a real domesticated doggy. He was frisky and ready to play. Such a lovable pup. I want one.

Story codes/tags: Dog slave, Blowjob, Toys, Sexy manhandling, Bondage, Anal Sex

RATING: 4 stars


STORY #11:  Isle of Chains (alternate world) - Sub's POV

Conga was on a quest to find and retrieve his best friend Lagan who was missing for half a year already. He felt a mysterious pull from the Isle of Chains a forbidden island where not one returns once they step ashore. Conga was surprised, amazed and shocked by what he found on that island. Will he be able to save his friend and return home safely? Would he want to return now that he had found what he has been missing all these years? Something he didn't know he needed to complete his life with.

The premise of the story was quite interesting and original. The world building was steady and debaucheries of all kinds was found within that mysterious island. Yet I only find this story to be satisfactory but not wow although it does have the most elaborated setup compared with the rest of the stories in this anthology.

RATING: 3 stars


STORY #12:  Fucked by a Stranger - Sub's POV

The MC was a bondage slave and he's very much an exhibitionist. He gets all aroused with others watching him being plowed. While I am aroused watching from the other end.

We get to see slaveboy MC submitting to an anonymous fuck while in full bondage in effort to please his Master. Not much of a submission on his part since he is loving every seconds of it. Hehehe. I liked that the MC puts on a show of defiance for his Master because he knew his Master likes his boy spirited. I have to agree with his Master that a bound, struggling and squirming slave is much more fun to watch than a dead fish.  The MC is such a good boy to try to heighten the pleasure of this voyeuristic Master the best of his ability.

RATING: 3 stars


STORY #13:  Two-Slaveboy, Wrap-up - Sub's POV

A story of creative slaveboys mummification. Double the mummy, double the fun. Mummy fucking mummy is hot. 
But when you’re mummified you’re like a shrink-wrapped product on a store shelf — you can’t move except to breathe.
Story codes/tags: Bondage, Mummification, Anal Sex, Handjob
RATING: 3.5 stars


 STORY #14:  Sold to the Highest Bidder - Sub's POV

A very exciting scenario where a slaveboy got himself unceremoniously sold off for pissing off his master by questioning his ownership of him. Looks like he is going to have to learn his lessons the hard way. What went on during the slave processing and auctioning was what gave this story a strong 5 stars! The hot manhandling alone was already the dizzying aspect of this story which I love love to bits! 

Story codes/tags: Bondage, Blindfold, Forced Blowjob, Flogging and Whipping (corporal punishments), Anal Sex, Gangbanging, Rapes, Lots of manhandling, Slave Auction

RATING: 5 Satisfied Stars


STORY #15:  Master's New Toy - Sub's POV

A 24/7 slaveboy was excited to watch his master train a new boy and was surprised his Master's generosity towards the end. 

Yup, I love this one too. Loving all the hot domination and the total submission by the slave boys was highly arousing. 
Picking the kid up, I slung him over my shoulder. I love carrying guys. Something about the weight of their bodies on me, their submission to me and my will . . . it’s totally fucking erotic.
- Hear, hear.

RATING: 4 stars


STORY #16:  Scent Slave (a touch of magic) - Dom's POV

The MC of this story found that he had an uncanny sexual power - the more semen he accumulates in his sack, the more appealing he would be to others. It's like having strong pheromones and everyone would want a piece of you.

Ever since the MC saw Bryan a fellow gym mate, he was smitten and driven to own him. Hence he started his full cum sackseduction plan. Would Bryan be able to resist the MC's compelling scent? Or would he start begging to be owned and used?

It was sexy in some part but parts of it made me laughed. :P

RATING: 3 stars


 STORY #17:  Winner Takes All - Sub's POV

Slave Josh found himself stuffed into a man-size duffle bag, bound and gagged, as a prize to a stranger who has won him for the weekend. His weekend Master was a stern and demanding man. Josh struggled to keep up with his temporary master and trying his best not to let his original master down. However it wasn't an easy task to satisfy Master Max who constantly test Josh's resolves with painful and degrading tasks. Slaveboy Josh has one hell of a weekend to survive. Will he be able to keep his good boy record until he returns to his master?

I got all the right sorts of vibes from this story. Large dominating males towering over their subs. There is so much testosterone in this story alone I could almost smell it in the air. It's like breathing in sexy manly pheromones. Yup this was yet another story with lots of erotic manhandling.

I am glad Slaveboy Josh met Master Max. He brought out the best in Josh. He might be highly dominating and rough but he does have a tender side which I liked very much. In short, Slaveboy Josh had experienced the most intense sessions with Master Max over the weekend. It was painful and harrowing but it was also exhilarating, mind-altering and filled Josh with much joy for Josh. Lastly, I agree with other reviewers that...
Master Bill was too blind and idiotic to recognize such a slaveboy gem like Josh who is always ready to serve and submit without a complaint. I was kinda expecting or wishing Master Max would sock him a good one when he dumped Josh like trash in public. Too bad I have to do that in my mind since Master Max didn't react the way I wanted. Ahh... pulverizing Master Bill feels so good.

RATING: 5 Hot Stars



The writing has a pronounced masculinity which I found compelling as it highlights virility and that is sexy to me. I am also delighted to learn that there are so many different terms to refer to the male sexual organ other than just cock or penis. I have also learned that different ways of calling a penis evokes different feelings. Words usage are important and it is powerful when used right. Tube-steak and cum sack makes me go wild with desire. So yea the writing is strong and honed to please.

Winner Takes All is erotica done right. It delivers what it promised; it helps its reader to get off. That is what we are looking for in our erotica right? Not only was it well written, it held true power to ignite our sexual desire hence I call this quality erotica.

This anthology is heavy on TPE, domination and submission, sweet sexual torments like orgasm denial, delicious bondage of various kinds, lots of humiliation and degradation, watersports and some corporal punishments. There are a couple of scenes which might freak out some vanilla readers. Otherwise all else is aim to please readers who enjoys serious BDSM that leans more towards the hardcore side.

I have enjoyed this book immensely and had a tough time suppressing my urge to highlight the whole book. If you are those who enjoys getting into the minds of a real dom or sub, this book is definitely for you as it portrays them perfectly. You would find yourself swept away into the minds of the narrators experiencing their realities where every flicker of their emotions are closely felt by you. This book was written with passion and the desire to bring Master/Slave fantasies to life.

One more thing, please try not to skip the Editor's Note or the Foreword. Both was brilliantly written and you would gain insights on what this anthology is about and what it aims to achieve apart from other tidbits.

Sigh... cover love ♥
