Puppy Love 3: Reawakening
Puppy Love 3: Reawakening (316 pp, $15.95, ; ebook: $9.95), by Jeff Erno, is the final episode of the gay, BDSM romance that began with Puppy Love.
Puppy Love is the story of Matt and Petey. Not only do they identify as a Dominant-submissive gay couple, but they also defy many of the stereotypes of this type of relationship. They rarely dress in leather; they don’t hang out at sex clubs, and they have little interest in many of the heavy BDSM sexual practices. There is no denying, however, that Matt is the Master and Petey is his pup. Reawakening, book three of the Puppy Love Trilogy, is the much-awaited conclusion to Matt and Petey’s story. After the tragedies of book two, more agony and ecstasy await Matt and Petey—a shooting, an unexpected pregnancy, a big gay wedding, and tons of passionate, kinky sex scenes. Will they find their happily-ever-after ending together, or will Petey’s reawakened independence lead him down another path entirely?
Five Stars! “Puppy Love 3: Reawakening is the final installment in the story of Petey and Matt, and author Jeff Erno saved the best for last…. As always the sexual relationship between these two is hot and intense. While the BDSM scenes are not as raw as in the previous two stories they still pack a punch. It is the growing non-sexual relationship between Petey and Matt that really drew me in however …. Mr. Erno soon had me caring about both men and by the end of the story I was crying … All in all the Puppy Love series is a wonderful group of books that I am happy to have had the chance to read. Book three not only shows how much the two young men have grown as individuals but as a couple, it also winds the series up perfectly. I hated to see this series come to an end and will definitely be reading it again while I wait to see what else the author has planned.” Read more …
“Petey is one of a kind, and I’m actually quite sad to leave him and Matt to their happy ending. If you looking for a set of D/s books which chart the progression, and maturity of a relationship between two young men—a real ‘coming of age’ for both of them, then you can’t go wrong with this series—this book is the end of that, and you do have to read the other books in the series first. As for me, I’m glad that I read this book, and series and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.” Read more …
“The one thing that the series did for me was to have me change my mind about the way I feel about BDSM relationships. I have really never felt comfortable with this kind of relationship and so when I read, I had to clear my mind from my own feelings. I actually paid little attention to this as I got to know the wonderful characters that Jeff Erno gives us. There is a lot of love here in volume 3 but there are also some shocking moments …. The sex scenes are hot and wonderfully written …. The story is in first person and therefore we are allowed to experience what Petey experiences. Although I am sad to see the series end, the author did so with a wonderful book and believe me when I say that Jeff Erno can really write. Now I just have to read everything else that he has written. It is not just the story that is so good but it is Erno’s characters that give life to the story.” Read more …

“Matt and Petey have been a big part of my life for a long time,” says Jeff, “almost a decade. I know it may seem strange, but they’ve become so real to me that I sometimes forget they’re only fictional characters. In a way I’m actually grieving their absence. I do believe, however, that the readers who’ve followed the story deserve some resolution, and I think Matt and Petey each deserve their own happy ending.”
