Rigger can't make a decision. He is agonizing over every single detail. From what underwear to put on, or what to study at college, what food to choose at a restaurant. He can't make up his mind. I saw a little of myself in him.
I really liked how the author portrayed 'decidophobia'. It's so overwhelming when you can't decide what to do or say, and when you finally choose something, you instantly regret it.
Rigger is funny and likes shiny clothes and makeup and singing show tunes. He's fun! And together with Krew, his best friend (from Fearless) they are a dazzling pair.
So Max, his boss sets him up with a guy he met in a bdsm club, coz he thinks they would be a good match. Because Rigger needs someone who gives him direct orders, so his mind could settle.
While I enjoyed this aspect of the book, I missed the romance. I feel like Rigger and Nael made a good arrangement for both of them but other than that... I'm not sure they get to know each other that well, to fall in love.
(Btw. I don't like this kind of bdsm. Why write a damn contract? what's the point? Do either of them go to jail if they break the contract? Ugh! 50 shades vibe.)
We met Rigger in a few of the Fear books, he went head to head with Krew in Fearless. Now Rigger has his own issues and demanded that his story be told.
As always with Mrs. James’ books, it is well written, and the character development is perfect. Rigger’s issues are not hard core like her other Fear book, but it does touch a bit on the mental side of things.
If you’re looking for a book heavy on Dom/Sub lifestyle this is not it. There is a more a suggestion of dominance outside the bedroom.
Although part of her Trials of Fear series (sort of), it can be read as a standalone.
I can’t wait to read what Nicky James has in store for us next!!!
This book made me laugh out loud several times as he fumbled his way through things while his mind went a hundred miles a minute. And I felt for him when he finally had someone to calm his mind, because you just want to put him in a blanket and take care of him at times.
Nicky James called this a failed BDSM book, that it was too light. But it's domestic discipline, and it don't need to be heavy, it's the discipline that does it and I liked it.
And since I'm always hungry for more, I would love to have snippets of their life. Because baking in heels and panties, what could be wrong with that.
So first off, heed the note to reader in the beginning of the book. This is not a BDSM book, just a TINY overview. Yeah?
Great! Gah, where to start?!?! I love Rigger. Ever since he made his first appearance in Krew's book, I always wondered about this sassy twink. Rigger has a hard time making decisions and you can cleary see how he struggles. Enter Nael, who helps his structure his life and his time, making life a bit easier. As always, NJ handled this with her usual care when she writes about mental issues. This was a lovely short niblet, and I can't wait to see what is next in store for this writer.
So either no one understood it and could clarify that for her or people aren't aware that D/s falls into BDSM and that 24/7 is INTENSE. Just because there isn't flogging, spanking, etc. doesn't mean there's no BDSM. And that you'd be so worried about managing expectations that you give two warnings at the beginning of a story, then proceed to give one of the most intense forms of kink is laughable.
It's easy to go to a party and get spanked or meet someone for two hours and be tied up and flogged. It's a LOT harder to trust someone enough to let them tell you how to dress, what to eat, where you'll live, whether you'll go to college, how to spend your money. It takes a lot of time and responsibility to be Nael and a lot of trust and commitment to be Rigley.
But because the author clearly only counts flogging and spanking (and other bedroom activities) as BDSM, the book ends up not committing to the level of sexy that power exchange can be. So it pulls back.
It doesn't dive into the appeal and turn on involved for folks that do enjoy 24/7 D/s. It falls flat. It doesn't play up the sex appeal of Nael's confidence, his giving Rigley strict rules, or making Rigley kneel in the corner when he messes up. Everything is bland, rushed, skipped over. And things that could have been the meat of the story, end up being thrown on the plate as an afterthought.
If you're going to write anything BDSM related, know what BDSM is (the wide extent of it, not just the 50 Shades bedroom trend) and do the work to bring it to life. In the end, I enjoyed what I could of the story. Pulling from it the power exchange that was all over the pages, while wishing it was more and done better. But couldn't fully enjoy the story because of how clearly it failed to understand it's own beauty.
Anyone wanting to see the beauty of power exchange (with or without the need for sexy bedroom kink) read Finding Ripley by Riley Hart. Over half the story doesn't include any sex but intensely showcases the sex appeal, intensity, and joy of D/s.
