Way’ra Bernard is only twenty years old when his parents kick him out of the house. He has been brought up to believe being gay is wrong and he is going to go to hell for it. He tried very hard not to be gay but couldn’t change the way he felt. Now he’s living furtively in a closet on the third floor of the place he’s working as a janitor—the Iron Eagle Gym.

Neal McPherson is an unattached Dom in his midtwenties and a member of the gym. One evening after working out, he notices Way’ra on the stairs, and he’s immediately attracted and intrigued, so he asks Way’ra out. Unable to come up with a reason to refuse, and also interested in Neal, Way’ra accepts.

There are a lot of obstacles to the relationship they attempt to build after their date, not least of which is Way’ra’s upbringing and his lingering doubts about the kinky sex Neal enjoys. But with patience and persistence, Neal might convince Way’ra not only to accept himself, but to loosen his inhibitions enough to explore and find a happy ending together.


The Closet Boy is the fourth book in the Iron Eagle Gym series by author Sean Michael. This story really tugs at the heartstrings. Way'ra has been kicked out of his conservative Christian college. His parents kicked him out as well with only the clothes on his back and the money he had on him. All because he was outed for being gay.
Now he has a job being a janitor for the Iron Eagle Gym. He doesn't have the money for a rent so he is secretly staying in the closet of the gym.
Neal has noticed the cute janitor. He also knows that something strange is going on. When he finds out what he wants to help Way'ra. Neal is a dominate and Way'ra could be the Sub of his dreams. Way'ra just needs to get over his fears and give the sexy Dom a chance.
This book is part of a series and should be read in order. There are characters from previous stories we briefly meet again in this one. Out of the ones so far I found this book to be the most emotional. Way'ra is a very sweet and deep thinking character. He has a lot of layers. I very much enjoyed getting to know him and Neal.
This story is pretty fast paced but I felt everything fit. There wasn't anytime that I felt lost or anything. Over all a great read. I love this series and want more of it.
