John and Robin are really close friends. You can feel the history and closeness of that fact. Watching that change over to a lovers relationship and the risk that involves is a pleasure to read. John is a hot, tall, tattooed, relaxed, Asian American, and did I say hot? Robin is a archivist nerd, adventurous, and likable.
The setting of LA is great for me because I lived there and enjoy visiting exact places.
The BDSM part is well done, sexy and with a lighter more intellectual touch that makes it a bit more RAWR than it usually is for me. The first time they come together outside of a scene is awesome! It will make my list of greatest sex scenes.
I love Robin and John being far from cookie cutter characters. There are two major side plots that are engaging.
The romance has a HFN ending with a huge hint at a HEA. It is very enjoyable read.
Here is what I wish though...
I would have like John and Robin to clearly address in a more emotional way why he said no in the early days of their college relationship and why now--out loud. I wanted more emotionial intimacy between them. I want to see the time period between moving into a one and one relationship and the move in. There is real romance there. I would have like more sexy times within this blended time for them of their kinks and their love.
That being said, I will be reading more books by these authors and highly recommend this one.
The heroine was meh, nothing special or endearing. Just sort of there. Can't say I cared that much about her or her sexual journey. The hero didn't heat me up either. I liked that he was tatted up and Chinese-American, and I really wanted him to get me going, but those sex scenes-D/s scenes didn't do it for me.
I didn't buy the heroine as being particularly submissive, nor did the hero come across as a true sexual dominant. He seemed pretend, and she seemed kind of silly and pretentious. I love D/s and bdsm, soft and hard-core, but the D/s dynamic here felt half-hearted. It wasn't strong or erotic enough to me. Almost too analytical. The scenes had the right words but didn't deliver any strong feeling/emotion.
I found myself skimming sometimes, looking for some romance and passion, but overall, I didn't really find it. Gets a little sexier toward the very, very end, but by then, I wasn't feeling the h/H or believing their romance all the way. For me, this wasn't romantic enough or hot enough, and at times, it was even boring. I made myself finish it.
But there was just too much talk about things that really didn't matter. I also had a hard time believing in John's Domination, but I did believe in their friendship and their love for each other, the growth the both found with each other.
