And I'm glad I did.
Detective Zinnia Jackson's got problems--A mother she can't talk to, a sister dying of cancer, a co-worker she can't stand and a new assignment--to go undercover as a submissive in the city's ultra-secretive BDSM community, in order to catch the man responsible for flooding her city with illegal gambling machines.
Zinnia's (Zin's) character is fully fleshed. The author left no stone unturned in making sure the reader knew exactly what we were getting. Zin is fiercely independent and has mastered the art of letting people see only what she wants them to see. However, when Ray Casey is brought in to train her as a submissive, she discovers parts of herself, she isn't sure she wants to know about, much less experience.
The author handled Zin's journey of discovery with a very delicate touch. Though the ideas, the teachings, the lessons, and the rope burns are introduced to her with little regard for subtlety, the understanding of what each means, develops over time. Like Zin, I gradually let my guard down and began to trust the process. She as a submissive. I as a reader.
When it comes to sex scenes, I'd much rather read foreplay than the actual sex. I mean how many times can you read about heaving breasts, earth-shattering climaxes and electric current running through the body, before it all starts to sound like the same scene with different characters? The author does an excellent job with the scenes leading up to actual sex-play. I'm a strong believer that if these scenes aren't written well, the sex, no matter how beautifully written, is going to fall flat.Read more ›
Wow, not what I expected from this at first, but really really pleased I got a chance to read this. Zin is an undercover cop, and is tagged to go undercover to a BDSM collaring ceremony/wedding as the date of a shibari expert, and part of his demonstration. That expert is our hero, Ray, a widower, who lost not only his wife but his submissive and has some serious issues unresolved from that. The target of the investigation into illegal gaming is high ranking and part of the BDSM scene. Ray is assisting the investigation, agreeing to help Zin do what she needs in order to fit into the scene, thus she becomes his assistant for the shibari demonstration, and they begin a relationship. Zin is brand new to shibari, and Ray is definitely not looking for a new sub at the start of this book.
This book has so many threads running through it. It is not a fluffy romance at all, and the topics addressed are quite serious and could be depressing, but are not handled that way. Zin has family issues with cancer and is possibly facing some of her own health issues. Both Zin and Ray have unresolved past traumas/issues from family and romantic relationships gone bad. The investigation itself is complex with many players and mysteries among the police force and Ray's friends and acquaintances. One character dies tragically during the book.
Others have mentioned as well that Zin and Ray are a biracial couple as well, though it is not a big deal at all in the book, which is pleasant. They are simply two people attracted to each other. Refreshing to see that.
I also find refreshing that our submissive (Zin) is a cop while our dominant, Ray, is a mailman and security guard.Read more ›
There were parts of Rain on Me I really enjoyed and found beautiful and there were points where I found myself cringing. The overall style of writing was fine but some passages were just... ugh. I can definitely say I hope to never see the word "folds" in an erotic romance again. Ray and Zinnia's connection was quirky, forced, peculiar, and charming all at once. I've read books with BDSM undertones and I've also participated in the lifestyle for a number of years. Due to my life experience, I understood Zin's reluctance to accept her role as a submissive. I identified with her willingness to be vulnerable in certain situations but I couldn't get a clear sense of who she was. The flashbacks of her childhood and her issues with her parents provided limited insight. I kept expecting more than the cliché of the woman with daddy issues looking for comfort in a man. Of course, Ray was in the end what she was looking for or was he? He provided Zin with sensitivity and the ability to "just be" but I believe D/s is a two way street. I failed to see what Zin provided for Ray. It seemed that he was constantly doing things to keep her comfortable and at ease but I didn't see how Zin reciprocated. Ray was battling his own demons.Read more ›
