I don't like the book because I felt Clay was pushed, and herded into a lifestyle he wasn't prepared for. When he voiced his fears of losing control and why that was so bad for him it was downplayed and reasons given why it was good to lose all control.
It was certainly a looonnnnggg book but I felt that I just kept reading to get to the end. There was huge amounts of detail about SWAT but there was very little SWAT action. I just think this was a self-indulgent journey where the main characters were not that likable. Clay needed care not to be fully subservient, which he kept saying but was ignored. And Logan realizing Clay wasn't into it as much said he would do anything to keep him including easing back on the Master/slave focus he had - and yet kept pushing and pushing and pushing. Both were uncertain, even the Dom came across as uncertain and inexperienced. By the end of the book I felt like I needed to read something else to clear my head of this congealed story. I realize others seem to love the book and I am absolutely sure that they got something out of it. I just didn't like the whole process and perceived manipulation. The writing improved the further into the book you go and there were a few editing issues. It was the story rather than the writing I didn't like.
Well it took me until Sunday to finish this because it was very "put downable."
This seemed more than 52 pages.
Also, there is some sneaky marketing going on with this title.
This xmas story features MCs from the author's 585 page novel--The Sargeant (Cuffs, Collars, and Love #1) that features these two ranking members of a swat-team, falling in love and entering into a D/s relationship.
However, there isn't any information given to the unwary reader that the full history of the two MCs of this 52 p story is told in an earlier and longer book.
The Sargeant: A Christmas Story can work as a stand alone but I couldn't find any info to indicate that this xmas story was a part of a series.
The fact that there is an attempt to hide the connection between this story and the novel to get readers to buy the story if they don't know about the novel--I really don't like that kind of duplicity.
There were two major factors that I had serious complaints about with this book. The first (and the hardest to get over for me) was the fact that Logan made such a big deal about how he wasn't a hardcore Dom so he didn't find contracts, or discussion of limits to be useful. From the first, I found that attitude to be irresponsible and distatesful in a Dom. As it turns out, almost every one of the conflicts that Clay and Logan have in this book could have been preemtively resolved if they had honestly participated in these two activities.
The second con that I found with this book was that it was much too long. About half way through, with the resolution of their conflict over Ryan, I thought that the story had a natural ending. But it just kept going on, an on. I liked the story overall, but this really should have been split into two books rather than forcing it all into one very long narrative.
Having said that, I loved Clay and Logan as characters, and really enjoyed reading about the development of their relationship. Both of their characters were consistent in how they were protrayed and while (like Logan) I got frustrated with Clay's stubbornness, I understood his concerns about what his need to submit meant, and his fear of loosing himself.
Overall, I liked the writing and the story enough to overcome the cons and rate this with 4 stars. And I intend to continue on with this series.
