SynopsisWhat happens in the dungeon doesn't stay in the dungeon.
"My sex stuff wouldn't make my father happy, but the feds didn't mind it at all. In fact, the official story was that I was the ex-boytoy of some now-disgraced Chinese billionaire. The gay wasn't an issue. Even the BDSM wasn't an issue. The issue was money-laundering. As long as they saw me as just another party boy, I was safe."
Or so he thinks. And then 22-year-old reformed bad boy Shale Shelby becomes involved with an A-list Hollywood action star with a strong taste for dominating younger men. His life may never be the same.
..."I really don't think it's a good idea for me to get involved with the fans, you know?"
The fans? "You're really in love with yourself, aren't you?"
"Don't pretend you would be here if I wasn't in the movies."
"You're in the movies?"
"What did I just say about playing stupid? There's a lot of models I could have in my bed right now if I wanted stupid."
"You're pretty enough to be in the movies." I looked him over. Yeah, I could definitely see this one as some kind of star. Those dimples were quality.
"Stop. Just stop. I don't need a lot of honesty from a blowjob, but I need that much."
"OK, OK, you're in the movies, and I'm your stalker, and you had to capture me and teach me a lesson. Maybe you better handcuff me again. I don't think the last lesson took."
"I really should ask you to leave." But we both knew he didn't want to.
I snuggled close. "All right. Name one movie I've seen you in."
He named five.
Oh f*ck. I sat up and took his head in my two hands. Turned it this way and that to study him from every angle. "I just thought you were a guy who looks like him," I said.
Reaction Shot is one of those books where I'm not really sure how to rate and review it, so here's my pros and cons.
-I loved Shale's snarky, smart-mouthed attitude with Lyndon. The backtalk made me grin while at the same time it was riling Lyndon up.
-Shale and Lyndon together are hot.
-It's a quick, sexy read.
-The scene where the tables get turned on Lyndon when Shale's in charge.
-I wasn't a fan of the means Shale took to get them out of the craziness. It didn't quite flow with the story for me, and while I did like the tables-turned scene, everything else about it felt too excessive.
-I didn't really feel any connection between Shale and Lyndon other than the physical.
In the end, this came out as a 3-star read for me, mostly due to the intense scenes between Shale and Lyndon and Shale's infinitely smart mouth. This is strictly for readers 18+ who are fans of BDSM.
