Two years after Steve Michaels called, “Action!” on a new phase in his career as co-producer on the television show Ben’s Life, the lights go up again on his Dom/sub relationship with actor Zack Greene, but Hollywood cameras don’t always capture the truth.

A mention of Steve’s past in the BDSM scene has Zack craving new ways for them to connect. All of the couple’s concerns fall away when Steve and his ex, Peter, are in a car accident. The last ones to know, Zack and Josh, Peter’s slave, rush to the hospital. The injuries from the accident force the dominant man to set aside his pride and accept help from Zack. Will the couple get to explore new boundaries in their relationship or will the dependency Cutaway the structure holding their relationship in place?

Warning: Spanking, D/s relationship, light bondage, two men who can’t get enough of each other.

This book takes place two years after Action, where Zack and Steve and their three year old relationship were first introduced. The story deals mainly with how their relationship has changed and improved.

I found Zack to be more outspoken in regards to his needs and opinions. He expresses his desire to explore more of the BDSM aspect of their relationship and suggests to Steve that they visit a BDSM club. Steve is not too convinced on the idea. He accepts that their Dom/Sub relationship is an unconventional one, but he believes that it works for them. Nonetheless, he starts researching and planning the way to go about it.

Here is where Peter, Steve's ex, comes in. He is the owner of the club Zack wants to attend but neither Zack nor Steve want much to do with him. Zack feels jealous of Peter, because Steve did a lot more with him that he has ever done with him. Steve figures he can talk to Peter about the club so that he can decide if it's the right kind of environment for Zack to be in. During the meeting some issues come up and Peter and Steve decide to get some coffee and discuss the matters further. It is during the drive that they get into an accident which leaves Steve injured.

Here is where my favorite part of the story comes in! No, I am not being's just that their roles are reversed a bit and I enjoyed it. Zack has to become the caretaker and Steve has to just sit by and let him do what he has to do to be able to take care of him properly. Steve does not feel comfortable with this. He feels helpless, but Zack showed his maturity and how open he has become by talking honestly with Steve and letting him know that it did not change their dynamic at all. That it was 'just them'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cutaway by Liz Borino September 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Steve is the director of the highly successful TV show, Ben's Life. He's been in a monogamous relationship with the show's lead star, Zack, for five years. Steve and Zack enjoy elements of a Dom/sub lifestyle, although neither is heavily into the scene. Steve identifies as a Dom, but draws the line at doing anything that would cause his lover pain or humiliation. Zack identifies as a sub, but has a big ego and a feisty attitude that often result in inappropriate behavior.

Steve is so lax, and Zack so obstinate, I have a hard time thinking of this as a D/s relationship. It doesn't help that the other D/s couple in the story is heavily into the lifestyle and their personalities are extreme. Even so, it's sweet to see how devoted Steve and Zack are to one another and how deeply they love one another. I admit I know very little about BDSM, so I can't speak to the authenticity of the characters' actions.

Their safe word made me laugh. :-D

There are several really interesting things happening in the plot, like Zack having to give his collar to a coworker on set, and the accident that causes Zack to have to care for Steve for a change. These could have been played up more, with more emotion, and perhaps in a full-length novel, they would have been.

I was also intrigued by the character Josh. I was a bit shocked at how the story ended. I was hoping for resolution for Josh's storyline. I'm assuming there will be another book in this series that explores Josh's story further. At least, I hope so. We're left with a pretty major cliffhanger! From what I know of Steve and Zack, it's highly unlikely that they would take in Josh as a third, but I was secretly hoping for that. He needs some hugs and kisses and sweet loving, too. :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Love these boys! September 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Zack and Steve are back! I fell in love with these boys in Action and here they are even better! They face new challenges as Zack's interest in exploring further into the BDSM life increases, adding Peter, Steve's ex, and Josh, Peter's slave, to the cast and showing a completely different type of relationship than Steve and Zack. I like the contrast in the relationships but I can't help but to favor Steve's and Zack's loving Dom/sub relationship over the Master/slave relationship Peter and Josh share.
Emotions continue to run high as Steve is in an accident and Zack takes on the caregiver role while his partner is down. I love this bit of role reversal as it showcases the strength in both characters as they work though this tough time. Their relationship strengthens and once Steve is back on his feet they can finally explore Zack's curiosity. These boys will always leave you wanting more. I will patiently wait for the next one. I can't wait to find out what happens next!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding followup to Action! September 19, 2012
By Becky C
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a good story about how a Dom can lovingly take his sub deeper into the D/s lifestyle at a pace that won't scare him away from the carefully constructed relationship they already have. I liked Steve and Zach in ACTION but I love them in CUTAWAY. There is some plot to the story but it is the characters who carry it and they had my undivided attention from the first sentence to the end of the book. This is one of my favorite Liz Borino stories so far and I look forward to more by this author whose talent is absolutely blossoming.
