Ok, so I didn't know what to expect when I saw this was out... On one hand, I wanted to read it so bad because I soooo loved Clay and Logan... BUT, Ryan was such a brat last book, I didn't know if I cared enough to read about him....I did though, it didn't take me but a few hours to be like... Jennifer, don't be ridiculous, of course you're gonna read it...
Now, I'm not a big fan of BDSM, I wasn't even on that whole 50 shades bandwagon... Its just not my thing. But I feel like it's done in a way in these books that, it's more about trust and love and... I know I know, people will be like DUH...But, like I said, I dont know much about it, it's not my thing... so don't judge...And as much as I liked Sam, I didn't like the whole scene where he slapped Ryan in the face... that goes from spanking and stuff to just disrespect. I didn't care for it.
The part where Ryan finally lets go, and Sam is telling him hes worthy and how there is nothing wrong with him. Broke. My. Freakin. Heart. It was beautiful. Not only that but it really made me understand Ryan so much better. I hated for him that he had to try so hard, that he'd been rejected so much that he didn't feel worthy of anyone. I'd be closed off and bratty too! Maybe not vindictive like he was, but I think a lot of times, he didn't mean to be, it's just what ended up happening. He's a bit of an "insert foot in mouth" kinda guy and you see his frame of mind a lot here.
I was interested to know something/anything about Ryans family, although he said his dad was career army, we didn't know anything of anyone else in his family which sucked because Sam was really close with his sister and we got to see their dynamic quite a bit, but Ryan seemed to be very much alone until he got with Sam. So, that left me curious.....not enough to take away from the story, but I did wonder.
I also enjoyed watching Ryan get over his infatuation with Logan and the acceptance there as well as Ryan and Clay hashing out their stuff, which was hard to read at times, my heart went out to Ryan quite a bit and I hated how people treated him and how easily embarrassed he was when people wouldn't give him a chance, I mean yea, he kinda deserved it to an extent but... all he wanted was to be accepted and it was a hard road getting there... He did eventually though and it made it all worth it :)
They both go through some self reflection and figuring out what they wanted from each other. Same wasn't looking for a sub at all, wasn't interested in owning anyone and it made me wonder why Ryan gave him the chance at all when it was so obvious that he wanted to belong to someone so badly. I'm glad he did though, the people as individuals they were from the beginning of the story was way different than the individuals they ended up as, they were stronger in themselves but also as a couple and it was really sweet the way Ryan finally let go and submitted but it was equally as sweet to see how Sam took care of him.
I really really really enjoyed it and I'm glad I didn't pass it up <3
Sam is the type of Dom I like to read about though. He’s sort of the wise, all-knowing Dom type, but Ryan didn’t have any deep psychological issues, so is wasn’t used as a cure for anything, just for prying his head out of his butt. Their scenes were great, with moderate BDSM and nothing too extreme, although Ryan’s a little bit of a pain slut. The SWAT action scenes and the mystery surrounding the prank calls added a lot of interest, also complementing the issues that Sam was working out with Ryan. It’s a interesting association balanced between the two plot lines.
This is my second reading and I do prefer this book to The Sergeant, which was good, but this one is better in my eyes. I liked the BDSM relationship being focused on more, because unlike Clay, Ryan desperately wanted a strong Dom of his own. It seems to follow all the correct rules of BDSM and it’s not just an excuse for rough sex. It’s integral to the plot and isn’t always about the actual sex act. I’d recommend this book for anyone having at least some familiarity with BDSM, at least reading it, who also enjoys police action and hurt/comfort stories.

I admit that I wasn't a big fan of Ryan at first, I thought he was a total dick.Read more
