Synopsis

A BDSM Thriller

What 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 I thought. Then somebody set me up for a kinky scene in Vegas with a guy who turned out to be Hollywood’s latest A-list action star. Lyndon’s gay and ready to play, with a strong taste for dominating younger men. I hate to admit it, but I was attracted to the arrogant son of a you-know-what almost immediately.

Of course, it’s all fun and games until we find out somebody’s got our whole twisted encounter on video…

Reaction Shot is a complete 150-page short novel including all four episodes of this gay male BDSM romantic suspense thriller– Audition, Camera, Action, and Cut.

Review

ThreeStar

Lyndon and Mr. Shelby were a strange couple.  I didn’t particularly like either of them throughout the story and I felt that their relationship was just as equally strange.  Not only was Lyndon somewhat entitled, but he was also a less than fantastic Dom.
Mr. Shelby…where to start with him?  I was very confused at the beginning of this story as to what his role was exactly.  Shale is kind of the “whomever you want me to be”, type, but in reality, he’s submissive…I think…
Overall, they had some decent sex, but their relationship is very truncated – we only see snippets of it and what we do see, there is not much development going on.
This was not your typical BDSM story, which was both good and bad.  While I understand what the author was trying to do, the execution, however, needed some work.  This was just an OK story for me and although it had immense potential, I just couldn’t get there.

This book was not what I was expecting in the least. If I had to name a category for this book I would call it BDSM but more on the dark side of things that is for sure.

Lyndon is an actor but he is also a Dom. Out of the blue he unexpectedly meets Shale Shelby. The two are far from a normal couple or any kind of couple at all in my opinion. What binds these two together is their mutual love for BDSM and the fact someone recorded them together to ruin both of them.

The more time together they spent the worse the videos got and if released it would ruin Lyndon’s career. So Shale does what he must to save Lyndon and it comes with a major cost that neither one of them may never recover from.

This book was in my opinion on the dark side of reading. It was interesting to see the twist and turns the plot of the story took and I did enjoy the read. I would only suggest this book to others that like BDSM for one but also one who does not mind the darker side of blackmail.
