Wes Oliver’s new in town and the night he attends a bdsm party, he meets Aimee. There’s something about her that calls to the Dom in him. But it gets complicated when he walks into his college classroom to find Aimee is his photography professor.
I really enjoyed Wes. I’m not used to seeing this level of openness in a hero, and I loved Wes for it. He knows he wants Aimee, and there’s some high-octane chemistry driving them together. Wes is stretched thin, however, and putting himself out there could backfire on him.
A nice guy with a sexy streak just pushes all the right buttons here.
Aimee was a little frustrating for me. She’s a photography teacher, and she’s always found a measure of comfort in working in the dark room. Wes comes in and rattles her comfort cage.
I really wish we had gotten more back-story into Aimee’s love of photography. I thought it was an important element, and I missed that part that would have made me feel more connected to Aimee. She also had a knack for shying away from communication, which could have solved the plot rather quickly. But I did enjoy the teacher/student aspect. Sometimes, it works for me and other times, it doesn’t. This one did. Aimee’s position with the college is kind of sketchy so her attraction to Wes couldn’t come at a worse time.
It is relatively light on the bdsm altogether, but the scenes were deliciously spicy. Dark Rooms is an enjoyable story with a memorable hero.
Dark Rooms is a hot BSDM novel that has a great plot. Photography professor and student who collide into one sexual fantasy after another. The characters are real, full of emotion, and written really well. Wes and Aimee are excellent characters, likable and with flaws. The book is steamy, fast paced, and engaging. I was pulled in from the very beginning.
The only problem I had was the last of backstory concerning Aimee's love for photography. I would have loved to see that explained. The backstory would have helped give Aimee's character a bit more realism. Plus, I love photography and like to know what takes others along that path.
I felt the BDSM content was well-written. This book focuses on consensual, safe practices. There were house rules built in that are for the safety of all who attend the private parties. The short story was great and I'm glad I had a chance to read Dark Rooms. I really love the ending between Wes and Aimee.
The story hooked me from the first page, where our hero and heroine, Wes and Aimee, meet at a private, BDSM party. Instant attraction leads to negotiation leads to a sensual first encounter for our budding lovebirds. This opening scene played well and had me eager to turn e-pages.
From there, Fox adds some fun layers of conflict to impact the potential relationship. First, Aimee is older and wants commitment-free hook-ups; Wes is younger and looking for a committed partner. Second roadblock: she’s one of his college teachers. Oops! While our hero doesn’t mind the teacher-student issue, our heroine does. And what’s worse, they both have some past relationship baggage to overcome. Wes is better at this than Aimee and ready to help her stop letting her past define and ruin her future. Yay, Wes!
In addition to a believable and entertaining romance arc, Fox provides interesting settings. Aimee’s two gay BFFs (entertaining secondary characters), throw the invite-only private parties in their lovely home, chock-full of kink equipment. Nice visuals. The other backdrop, the photography classroom and its dark room, provide Wes and Aimee opportunities to up the sexual tension in their budding relationship. I enjoyed this immensely, along with Aimee cursing like the proverbial “trucker”, and the occasional Princess Bride reference.
To sum up, Dark Rooms is a fun, kinky, sexy fast read, and a “yes” for your TBR list. Enjoy!
