All the right boxes including being as tidy and organized as himselfThat definitely isn’t his chaotic co star Rick with his spanking fetish and habit of tying a different sub to his bed every nightWhen Matt meets the perfect dom he’s swept of. Ricochet is a delightful and deliciously enjoyable BDSM fantasy although BDSM soap opera might be appropriate As the blurb indicates the story is set in an alternate reality where everyone is bisexual and self identifies as either a Dom or a sub One might think that finding love might be easier in such a well defined society but the author has built a world in beautiful shades of gray with variations in subdomdomdom that make the journey to romance as challenging as it is within our own reality The world is colored in manipulative doms service subs dramatic subs and those who are inept at their own craft And while people may self identify into one of those buckets it doesn't mean that they make no mistakes along the way The mistakes made are many and varied While the world building is certainly essential to the story it doesn't overwhelm it but rather makes a soft cradle in which the story can settle We get to meet Rick the uintessential bad boy Dom who is rapidly sleeping his way through all of the subs in the city We also get to love Matty the slight neurotic sub who isn't able to truly give up control These two make an odd but strangely endearing couple Both are actors on a hit tv show Collar Crime trying to work through their pasts hold onto their careers and simply not be swallowed up by the miasma of life Through circumstance or trickery they turn to each other for help with their careers and find themselves unexpectedly attracted to each other and fighting it Through a series of events that strangely mirror the plot of their tv series Rick and Matt learn to overcome their hangups mostly and start to build on something newReading the above you probably think the story sounds a bit cliche It absolutely unapologetically is Throughout the story the author manages to maintain a tongue in cheeky humor that is mostly subtle and thoroughly enjoyable And although the story mirrors that of a day time drama it solidly maintains one foot in reality sometimes only tippy toes which gives it a strangely realistically fake feel There are often surprising moments of depth interspersed amongst silliness And I loved it This book is a great sink your teeth into it relaxing story It's origins in fanfic are obvious particularly in its length While perhaps the writing could be tightened up a little bit I enjoyed the length as it gave me the opportunity to reside in the characters skins Read it

F his feet but he soon discovers that being pursued by a handsome controlling billionaire isn’t the erotic fantasy he’d imaginedMaybe the right dom for him is the one he thought was all wrong Content advisory mm BDSM one or two glimpses of fm. 35 stars – An enjoyable mm romance that is set in an AU universe contemporary but everyone is bisexual and is either a dom sub or switch and they live their lives with ds relationships as the standardThe parts that I liked The MCs Rick and Matt had great developing chemistry and it’s a nice slow burn between them as their relationship moves from bickering on the set of the TV show they act on to Matt helping Rick by becoming his “spanking buddy” to Rick helping Matt cope with his OCD on the job Their back and forth and the developing relationship trust and love between them was probably my favorite part of the bookI also really liked both Rick and Matt and their individual characters Rick is a dom but plays a sub on his TV show and overall takes on many different personalities in order to help people feel comfortable around him Beyond that and his commitment issues he’s a very nice guy and I appreciated his aversion to hurting people and dislike of disciplinary measures Those traits added neat layers to him Matty is also very sweet and I liked how his OCD counting ticks popped up consistently in the story It wasn’t something that was fixed but would pop up again and again whenever he was anxious What I wasn’t so crazy about It’s a long book which is fine but at times I felt things could have been tightened up a lot sometimes it felt like a scene ran too long for instance It’s this lack of tightness as well as a lot of different plot threads that made me feel the author’s routes in fanfiction the most There are also A LOT of exclamation points used in dialogue which led me to keep picturing everyone shouting all the time I wish a bunch of those were culled out I’d also recommend another round of proofing since there are a few editing errors at least in the kindle editionA third through the book Matt hooks up with a rich businessman dom Don’t worry cheater haters He wasn’t cheating This guy is a Grade A douchebag though In some ways it’s great that the author created a character that you hated SO MUCH but I actually had to skim a lot of these parts because I hated reading about him and his jackass ways view spoilerI did wonder about his sudden leave taking after the denouncement For such a narcissistic stalker I’m surprised he never tried to reach out to Matt again That seemed a little off compared to his earlier controlling behavior hide spoiler
