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.
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.
This review is for: The Sergeant, The Detective's Pleasure, The Sergeant: A Christmas Story, and An Officer's Submission.
Christa Tominson has written an erotic and very sensual love story. The developing relationships among the SWAT team on the Houston Police Dept. are told with love and compassion. All the books revolve around the SWAT team. The dominant/submissive partnerships seem more realistic and caring of each others' needs than some books I've read. The books are best read in order as they build the plot line and suspense of the team's lives and loves. The last book is something else to read. It's no trouble at all to believe the traumatic events in An Officer's Submission can happen.
Christa Tomlinson has a fantastic story here. It's well worth your time to read. The books are well written and easy to follow, no what did I miss or how did we get here to them. The characters are complex. The books are fast paced with complex characters and lots of subplots. I thought they were fun to read.
