I've spent the morning trying to figure out why I didn't find this extreme. Dildos, check. Butt plugs, check. Floggers, paddles, whips, check, check, check. Bondage, yep. Mild humiliation (very mild), absolutely. Cock cage and Ball stretcher, oh yes. Menage, you betcha. Sounds extreme, right? This is the conclusion I've come to: there was emotion and longing behind every action which made it less extreme and more engaging. Many times in BDSM there is a bit (or a lot) of emotional withdrawal, regardless of what the D/s relationship is outside of play. With James, Tate, and Sebastian I didn't feel the disconnect, even during the scenes where the Dom was clearly a Dom. Don't get me wrong, this isn't a sweet, sappy love story. It is totally a BDSM read with emotional elements. And that's why I think this book works.
Let me say, first up, that the writing - its flow, pacing, description, plotting, and cadence are as good as ever.
My problem had more to do with the one character's internal dilemma. And really, the issue is mine. The plot device of having two characters vie for the love of one of the other characters is not new. For me, though, having one guy weigh up the pros and cons of the two men vying for his love makes it not feel like love anymore. It feels like comparison shopping for a car. I know I am probably in the minority feeling this way, and the majority of readers will lap it up.
Having said that, Ms Lister, handled her lead protagonist's dilemma with her usual sensitivity. Same with the kink - it was handled in such a way as to be both erotic, and yet not in-your-face. The sex scenes are hot, and those readers that are into BDSM themed novels will be very pleased with the quality and quantity on offer in Beyond the Edge.
All in all a novel which delivers an enjoyable, sexy read.
James Lucas is a dom. He thinks he has the perfect sub he wants to impress and keep in Tate. Tate loves being Jame's sub. He lives for the moments they can be together. Tate is an assistant at a consulting firm by day sub or dom at night. He likes to switch it up. But for James he would sub all the time if he had too.
James introduces a young new fresh sub Sebastian into their games. Tate cannot keep his hands or eyes off of the sweet younger man. He wants Sebastian as his own. But how will that effect the relationship with James? I loved watching Tate come into his own as a Dom and a person. He learns to have equal footing in a relationship and what it really means to commit in this story. Sebastian is a sweet, kinky angelic soul who teaches Tate how to be himself. I liked them together very much, they are meant to be together. I hope in the next book that James finds his true love. I would like to see the older, strong, but firm Dom get his man too. When you want a truly engaging and emotional book this is the one to pick up.
