Synopsis

Look, I’ll never stop missing Hal, but this Subs Club my friends started to review suck-ass doms isn’t gonna bring him back or give him justice. For me, it’s just another chance to hang out with my friends, even if they think I’m too dumb to understand the important work we’re supposedly doing.

But maybe I’m not as dumb as they think—at least I know when I’ve got a good thing going. Which is why I just moved in with my dom. Ryan’s awesome possum. He’s really short, never makes me feel stupid, and is up for anything. One word: costumes. Two more words: women’s underwear. We’re all about the lace, no leather.

Except when we do pony play. We first tried it as a joke, but turns out I’m ballin’ at it. Now PetPlayFest is coming up, and I wanna take down the Subs Club’s archrival, Cinnamon the ponygirl, in the horse show.

My friends think I’m spending too much time with Ryan and ignoring my obligations to the group. But since when is friendship an obligation? Ryan’s my first serious relationship, and I want to take it . . . seriously. At some point I need to think about my future, not my past.

Review

FourStars

This was not at all what I was expecting.  Now, that’s not to say that this isn’t an enjoyable read.  However, I found that Kamen and Ryan were an odd couple.  They were an odd couple to begin with in the previous book.  But, somehow they just kind of work.

Kamen’s story has been my least favorite so far.  He is more whiny than the rest of the group.  Poor me, people think I am not smart, poor me, people always believe I’m the jock of the group… I think he is the most immature of the group and this book just showed me that was true.

Ryan is somewhat of an enigma for me too.  He is hard for me to enjoy and like.  He seems opinionated and pushy, he shows almost no compassion for what this group has suffered and likes to push his own agenda.

That being said, the writing was good and the story did flow well.  It’s just that I didn’t like the characters all that much.  I did enjoy Cinnamon and what her nagging provided.  It was very entertaining and not at all the direction I thought the story was going to take, so that was a surprise.
