Publisher's Summary

Katy Marks has worked hard for years to make partner at her law firm and be accepted in a man’s world. She hasn’t had much time for play. Now she has a stalker, one of the firm’s partners who hopes to entice her to gain promotion by sleeping with him. Backed into a corner, she grabs an unexpected opportunity. She wards off his unwanted advances by plastering herself against the sexy man leaning casually against the wall outside her uncle’s gym.
Rafe Wesson is stunned by one look at the sexy woman so totally out of place in the gym and finds himself flattened by his best friend and sparring partner. Scrambling to ensure he gets a chance to speak with her, he instead finds himself KO’d by a kiss that rocks his world and hardens him in all the right places.
Katy isn’t Rafe’s type. She’s far too innocent. Besides, she’s the gym owner’s niece. But two dates don’t dampen his desire or release her from his thoughts. Rafe has personal rules against sleeping with a woman before they are fully informed about his dominant ways. But Katy is testing his patience. She wants him, but he fears she won’t be as persistent when she finds out about his preferred lifestyle.
Rafe tries to step away from her, but he can’t ignore the unknown threat that stalks her, and time is running out. Someone wants Katy dead. And Rafe wants Katy...very much alive.

MORE DOM/SUB THAN MMA

I adore MMA fighters & novels about their lusty romances, but this one was a little tweaked. In general, it seems as though this series is will be more about Dominants who are fighters...equally dedicated to both of these lifestyle commitments even though the Dom qualities were focused on more than the fighting aspect. I have to admit that I'm a sucker for incredible cover photos/models & this one is pretty awesome, but the book felt a bit disjointed.

The meeting between MMA fighter Rafe Wesson and sexy lawyer, Katy Marks was pretty potent and I thought it was the start of a great book. But, as things progressed I felt strung along just as the relationship between these two. Between lengthy internal monologues about Rafe feeling guilty about not revealing this DOM side and Katy wondering if Rafe was gay, and that was why he didn't move things further along...well the whole thing became rather stifling. The stalker was the guiding force behind Rafe and Katy staying close together, as Rafe insisted on protecting her. Things get dragged out until past midway, in the book, where Rafe's DOM qualities are finally revealed. When that aspect was explored I felt my woman sensibilities being challenged when Rafe wanted to push the DOM/SUB relationship into more arenas, aside from the bedroom (or sex club). At that point, it kind of felt like a chauvinist revival. However, Katy was able to negotiate that aspect well. Both were open about each other's comfort levels and how far to take the BDSM qualities, so at least you had that as somewhat of a relief from Katy becoming a complete doormat, or invisible woman.

Regarding the sex scenes, the first half of the book is all about their personal masturbation sessions since they aren't with each other. So, yeah...not good there....Then, for the latter half of the book, well they explore different sex scenes and scenarios both at home and at this sex club (which incidentally the whole fight club belongs to...OMG). Yeah, there were parts where I thought my face was turning 50 shades of red.....seriously embarrassing...Uh, I'm not sure how I feel about this series....it seems like it will be about DOM/MMA Fighters falling in love with vanilla women and turning them on to their lifestyle. Um, I think that's succinct enough, as an explanation....LOL

The end was too rushed for me, but that seems to be the norm nowadays with novels.

The narrator performed the male voices better than the female. Her female voice sounded like 2 generations back....like I was listening to a grandmother narrate for Katy..LOL...it was weird.

main plot Dom/sub

What did you like best about Come? What did you like least?

I liked their first meeting outside the gym, and some other parts of the book. I did not like how most of the focus was on Dom/sub and BDSM elements. I thought the stalker part should have been the main focus and Dom/sub smaller role in story.


If you’ve listened to books by Becca Jameson before, how does this one compare?

N/A


What didn’t you like about Annie Chapman’s performance?

Could not stand her "hero" voice just seemed a bit off and lacking to me.


Could you see Come being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No


Any additional comments?

IMO there was more emphasis on the BDSM Dom/sub elements than on the stalker part of the plot. Overall was ok, listened to it once and that is enough for me. Not sure if I even want to hear other books in this series. Maybe if another reader is used, and if the books are on sale. For me it was not worth the price or a credit.
