Title: Tag Team (Guards of Folsom #2)
Author Name: SJD Peterson
Publication Date & Length: October 3, 2013 — 220 pages
Following the death of their sub, the former owners of the Guards of Folsom, Robert “Bobby” Alcott and Rig Beckworth, were left to pick up the pieces as best they could. After seven years, these two Doms are ready to move on and find the boy who will complete them. Their painful past comes crashing back when they meet Mason Howard, a submissive who just weeks ago lost his Doms in a car accident.
Reeling from overwhelming grief that’s complicated by a severe social anxiety disorder, Mason can barely leave his home. When Rig and Bobby find him, he’s hit rock bottom, believing life is no longer worth living. Bobby and Rig set out to prove the younger man wrong. Fate has brought the three men together, but they’ll have to face fear and loss head on before they can all truly live again.
This is a book about loss and grieving… more so than about BDSM. There is definitely a lot of talk about submission and dominance as there is two doms and a submissive, all of whom are dealing with loss.
I like that we got to see the softer side of the two big bad doms, but I also felt like the book was a bit slower and not as intriguing as the first in the series, quite possibly because there was very very little BDSM. However, the writing was excellent and had to know how the book ended for all three of the men.
Rusty Topsfield did an excellent job with this book as he did with Pup. He brought each of the characters to life in such a great way and brought the humor between Rig and Bobby out in such an excellent way. The way he voice Mason and his troubles was superb. It would have been easy to put too much into the sensitive character, but he didn’t. Just perfect. The cadence of his voice made the book so easy to listen to and interesting.
