Reactions and Reviews: Issue 2

The only thing better about sex games is those fics where you don't really know who's who. Hutch is being picked up in a bar by a stranger after a domestic arguement. Sometimes you go out to find what you need. And it seems like the guy Hutch picked up can fit the bill just perfectly. Don't worry, the twist at the end makes up for any doubts you might have.[1]
