The two main characters of The Luckiest Master both work at the Iron Eagle Gym, as well as being members, so their general focus while they are at the gym is on the office and the running of the front desk and the janitors, maintenance, housekeeping, etc. However, much of the gym equipment and some of the exercises could double for more smutty activities. Or at least have kinky sounding names.
Here are a few of my favorites:
And here is a small excerpt of Saw actually using a piece of equipment for what it is intended for.
Saw looked over at Bran, found a warm smile for the guy. “What’s up?”
“Are you still looking for a job? I know you’d said you were interested in finding something.”
He nodded, shook his head, then nodded again. It wasn’t about the money. He had that, thanks to Tim’s trust. He’d tried to run his own business, a gorgeous little stationery store, which had failed miserably. Then he’d worked as a secretary and been laid off, and he’d been hired at a small boutique that closed before he even started. He was like the kiss of death.
“There’s a position here, assistant manager.”
“Oh God no. I like it here.”
Bran gave him a strange look. “Well, that’s the idea, right? It would be fun to work here.”
“Yeah, but….” No one wants to work with me. I’m cursed. “I’ll talk to the manager.”
“Have you met him yet?”
“No. I will.” Running. He was running.
Bran hit the cooldown button on Saw’s machine. “You should go talk to him. He’s interviewing this week.”
“Butthead.” If Bran wasn’t a good guy. “You don’t get to shorten my run.”
“You’ve been on for over an hour.”
“Oh. Well, I’m training.”
“To do what, Saw? Take over the world?”
Bran laughed and put a hand in front of his machine so he couldn’t change it from the cooldown mode.
The Luckiest Master
When Master Damien Richardson (Day to his friends) takes over the front desk manager job at the Iron Eagle Gym, he knows he’s going to need an assistant. But finding the right person for the job is harder than he thought it would be. When he meets Saw, he thinks he’s found the solution to all his problems, and maybe something more.
Sawyer Whitehead lost his master to a tragic car accident some years ago, and since then one opportunity after another has gone sour on him. Thoroughly convinced he’s cursed and a jinx to everything and everyone he touches, he refuses to officially become Day’s assistant because he knows that as soon as he does, something terrible will happen. He’s even more determined not to get involved with Day, despite his attraction, because it would kill him to be responsible for tragedy befalling the lovely man.
Day must convince Saw that he’s not cursed and that together, they can face any challenge that comes their way—in both their professional and personal partnerships.
