The Colt
The Colt - Kalita Kasar

3.75 - 4 stars.

 

Imagine you never really had a home and finally found it and a friend you’re beginning to love. What would you do if you see that this friend is hurting? That he seems to need something you can’t give him? Malcolm knows exactly what to do. Stay by his side and help him, no matter what.

 

The Colt might not be perfect, like the writing was a little bit rough in the beginning. Still, I really liked the book, because the story was so captivating (I liked the first half a little bit more). I can’t really say what part of the story I liked so much. Maybe it was Malcolm, learning what BDSM really is (damn, that one scene in the club!) or how Marcus finally found the strength to fight back. Or the feeling that something bad would happen…. There’s just one thing I know – if you like books with a little bit BDSM (in this case I really wished we could have seen more!) and some sweet parts in-between, this book might be the right one for you.

The Colt - Kalita Kasar 3 1/2 - 4 Hearts

Review written for MM Good Book Reviews

Marcus is a soap actor and part time rancher, he knows better than to get involved but one night he comes to the rescue of Malcom in a bar. Malcom has been abused in the foster homes he grew up in and when Marcus offers him a helping hand he is suspicious of his motives. Marcus has problems of his own when his convenient relationship begins to take a brutal turn, and he isn’t strong enough to walk away without help. Marcus and Malcolm support each other as they both try to weather the scandal and violent threats. Malcolm must come to terms with Marcus’ needs and understand the truth of BDSM.

This story of gay love in the eighties during a time when BDSM was misunderstood and fear of HIV/AIDS was rampant. Marcus is a sub who has fallen into an abusive ‘relationship’, he knows his Dom is going too far but he doesn’t feel like he can stop him. Malcom knows abuse when he sees it and the man who has offered him a job and a place to stay is being abused, he might not understand BDSM or why a person would want to be hit but he offers his support to Marcus. When Marcus’ Dom reacts badly to Marcus walking away from him it causes Marcus huge problems but Malcolm is by his side every step of the way, now Malcolm has to do something he never thought he would, he has to learn how to be a Dom.

I did enjoy this story and I thought that the setting was brilliant, but what I loved the most was the brief look at BDSM and AIDS in 1986. Malcolm has a lot to come to terms with when it comes to BDSM because he has been beaten enough in his life, so for him to try to understand what BDSM was really about makes you love him, also the fact that he stood by Marcus as his life went down the toilet was brilliant. Marcus was such a sweetheart who just wants someone to love him and give him what he needs, in Malcolm he finds someone who wants to try. There isn’t much sex because of the fears surrounding AIDS at that time, Marcus refuses to risk Malcolm until they are sure they are both clean, because back then they didn’t know how it was spread or how to protect against it. This is more of an emotionally supportive story, with love developing between Malcolm and Marcus, there are no real BDSM scenes, maybe just one or two D/s scenes.

I have to recommend this to those who love early eighties gay difficulties, finding support and love, fighting for the right thing against the odds and developing a love that will stand against time.

The Colt - Kalita Kasar A Hearts On Fire ReviewTHREE & A HALF STARS--Kalita Kasar's novel, "The Colt", has all of the elements I enjoy: younger Dom/ older sub, domestic abuse themes, a hustler/rent boy main character and a believable love story. Plus one of the main character is a Navajo Native American. And the story delivery was pretty good. Based on the blurb, Marcus (32) is a L.A. daytime soap star and part time rancher who owns his ranch in Arizona. One night he breaks a bar fight and save Malcolm, a 20 year-old, who has been living on the streets for years. He hustles pool and sometimes more in order to get money to survive. That night and the next morning changes both men's lives.Marcus hires Malcolm as a ranch hand innocently. The two become closer. But what Marcus does not share is that he is in an abusive relationship with a psycho-abuser (Paul) who has the audacity to call him self a Dom and what he did to Marcus as part of BDSM."The Colt" as a title is quite literal and figurative, as a colt is born on the ranch that helps bring the men closer. Marcus and Malcolm are quite coltish themselves with learning to trust, Marcus needing to learn it is not okay to be abused, etc. What the blurb did not mention was the story is set in 1986. I don't have a problem with the setting, it's just I was a toddler at the time so I had to Google certain historic events mentioned to ensure it was 1) accurate and 2) figure out what the hell happened back in 1986. There were a lot of mention of AIDS scares back then how recognized gays where treated leper-like once recognized as being gay. The stigma that it carried then was horrible. It made me think the progress that has been made to present day and more that needs to be done.But I digress.Would I read this author again? Definitely. Did you not see me mention the underrepresented younger Dom/ older sub? Also the story was entertaining and had a believable HEA.So why not a higher rating? The actual BDSM was pretty light, so light it was almost nonexistent. There was a tutorial of sorts for Malcolm as he has never even heard of BDSM and the different parts that make it up. Was he the most believable Dom? Not really but appreciate his trying. Also, Marcus from the beginning was not who I saw at the end. I liked him but he was becoming quite needy. But I did like him sticking up for himself in the end.And Marcus was a part of BDSM club that knew Paul was out of line and abusive but they waited too long in my opinion to black list him and prevent from a situation like Marcus' from happening.I did like Marcus and Malcolm's practice of safe sex (well their version anyway) It was frustrating but good to see they tried to be safe during the late eighties' AIDS scare/epidemic.Who would best enjoy this story? Those who like to read about the very lightest touch of BDSM and don't mind reading about domestic abuse. In fact, this story does show a character who abuses and tries to excuse it as BDSM (which what he was doing was domestic abuse, plain and simple)
