What IS it about soaps? I mean, we all love a good show, but a soap opera? It’s balls-out fantasy with the volume pushed up to max. No rules, just drama.
Nobody stays together, apart, or even dead for very long. Nobody keeps their clothes on when they’re supposed to. And God bless ‘em for that. Folks lie, cheat, smex, get possessed by the devil, fall in love, and then they do it all over again. We love it because we never know what’s going to come (ahem) next. It keeps us on our toes, and we get to peek through the windows and live vicariously.
Now. For you lovers of M/M romance, what if all that soapy drama came with a hot, gay twist?
From the fertile mind of Damon Suede, I bring you soapy action of the homoerotic kind:
What goes up always comes down…
Peek behind the fly of Boxer Falls, and see what mischief lurks in its quiet streets and secluded spots of a small New England town with a queer reputation. Around here, the family closets hold more than skeletons and the fights are strictly gloves-off. With folks this gorgeous, the feuds are bound to get ugly.
When the wealthy Cotten family decides to turn their country estate into a luxurious resort, the residents of Boxer Falls face an influx of affluent tourists who rub their sleepy little town in the worst ways. Lust, greed, betrayal, and ambition might just yank the town to its knees.
Tune in each week to get the latest on scorching affairs, family dysfunction, and secret desire.

Here’s an excerpt from Episode 1, by Damon Suede:
No alarm. No movement. Nothing to mark his first day in a new town.
Quinn opened one eye to blinding light. Somehow it was morning already. Shit. First day in Boxer Falls and he was already late. He’d been expected at his new job at the tavern a half hour ago. Hopefully employers were laid back round these parts. Hell, he was a bartender not a brain surgeon. They’d deal.
Quinn had overslept. The big snoring body next to him in bed felt too good. The other man’s coffee skin
contrasted sharply with Quinn’s bone white legs.
Rick? Nick? What was the guy’s name? Vic. Victor.
Vic dozed on like a big, satisfied grizzly stretched from the headboard all the way to the foot of the mattress. Big son of a bitch, he was. African-American, but sometimes he almost looked Cuban. The sheets were streaked with lube and the sheriff had some beautiful stripes on his butt from the spanking. Quinn knew what he was doing there.
In the dark he hadn’t noticed the contrast, but in the morning light, Quinn’s pallor and hairlessness made him feel extra naked.
The clock said it was after nine so he was already late for the Bear & Bones breakfast customers, and gonna be later still. Maybe he could lie and claim he’s thought they meant nine tonight. Nah. Late was better than lying right out of the gate.
Not a second to spare, Quinn rolled to his feet and trotted to the shower. At the sink, he scrubbed his teeth on a washcloth and took a swig of Listerine to kill his morning breath. He’d have to buy a toothbrush in town once he’d met his boss and moved into his new digs. The old couple that owned the tavern wouldn’t be there till Monday. Dot Boxer had loved his red hair. Her husband Ira had taken to his filthy jokes instantly. Still, no point in screwing this up for himself the first day. Apparently he would be working with the cook, but it was strictly mom and pop this place. The Boxers hired local help as they needed it but they needed Quinn to pick up the slack. He could do this shit in his sleep and a good thing, because it would take him an hour and a few cups of coffee before he was really on his game. No big: tending bar, and maybe waiting some tables during the day when it was slow.
The water in the shower felt hot and good. Quinn cracked his neck and let the spray pound his scalp while he scoured Ivory over his pale skin. As he washed his pubes Quinn winced; his rosy cock was literally sore. Luckily, he had a long-sleeved shirt for work in his backpack. He had pink patches where Vic’s rough beard and chest hair had rubbed him hard. He smiled at those.
Quinn had never fucked a cop before. He’d have to do that again. And Vic had been very agreeable in the end. The guy was a big slab of meat, scruffy beard and medium brown skin but his balls were nearly black. Cock like a club. At the rest stop where they’d met, they’d fooled around a little at the urinals. Nothing special really, until Quinn had gotten a little nasty and pushed the big bastard to his knees.
Sproing! Once Vic’s knees hit the ground, he had perked up big time, his dark shaft like iron and his hot eyes on the floor.
