The blurb:

“When Dr. Seth Coleman catches the gaze of handsome conference speaker, Carson Randall, he’s intrigued.  After the speech, Carson introduces himself and hands him his business card then leaves. Seth discovers the card holds more than Carson Randall’s information; on it Carson has written his room number.

For as long as Seth can remember, he has focused his attention on being a doctor. But now he has the chance to focus on his own needs. Will Seth take the safe route and socialize with his co-workers at the conference or will he accept the handsome speaker’s invitation?”


My thoughts:

This story is part of the Cobblestone Blue Series which is described as follows:

The Blue short story line is erotica. For us, erotica is about the fulfillment of a sexual fantasy.  These stories are sexy, very graphic, and are by no means a “traditional romance”.

And as descriptions go this one is very accurate. Room Service is indeed sexy and very graphic. In fact, if this story sets the standard I would call this series ‘Red Hot’ rather than ‘Blue’.

This story describes one very sexy encounter between two men during a medical conference. Dr. Seth Coleman doesn’t know what to think when the eyes of Carson Randall meet his. Carson Randall is sexiness personified whereas Seth doesn’t see himself as anything special. But, when the two men meet after Carson’s presentation is over, it becomes clear that he has taken an interest in the young doctor. Randall’s business card with his room number on the back is a clear invitation; one Seth doesn’t need to think about for very long.

“The sexiest man in the whole building, hell the whole conference, had just invited me to his room.”

Seth has only just entered Carson’s room when he finds himself slammed into the door and instructed about safewords. Blindfolded and with his hands tied, Seth has no choice but to surrender. And surrender is exactly what he wants and needs.

“I wanted him to use me. Consume me. Fuck me. Ruin me.”

Helpless and restrained, Seth allows himself to be used and discovers the satisfaction that comes from complete submission.

“My entire existence was focused on how he took what he wanted, needed, desired.”

And just when you thought this story couldn’t get any better there’s a nice little surprise at the end to put a huge smile on your face.

I wouldn’t call myself a fan of short stories. Usually they leave me frustrated and wanting more. Room Service proved to be a delightful exception to that rule. I wouldn’t complain if anybody forced me to spend more time with Carson and Seth, but this story was perfect just the way it was; hot, exciting and extremely satisfying, both for the characters and for this reader. And, to give not only this story but also my review a happy ending; I've just discovered that there will be a sequel to this story called "Lip Service".

It is hard to believe that only six months have passed since I read ‘Chasing Matt’ the novella Nikka Michaels co-wrote with Eileen Griffin. I loved that story and have enjoyed every single word I’ve read by this author since then. To say I’m waiting with baited breath for whatever she might produce next would be a dreadful understatement. It is safe to say I found myself yet another ‘must-read’ author.

Nikka Michaels lives in the always rainy but beautiful Pacific Northwest with her family (of the human and four legged variety).  She graduated with an anthropology degree; something that makes most people scratch their heads and ask, “What you can do with it in the real world?”  Answer:  “Real world, schmeal world.”

When not writing snarky and sometimes dirty words, she can be found chasing around the human and canine members of her family.
