Since I thoroughly enjoyed the 1st book, I was looking forward to the 2nd in this series about major league baseball players. In Inside Heat, twin brothers Jeff and Jason have an 18 month relationship with Megan. The twins treated Megan with gentleness and respect until Jeff & Megan fell in love, leaving Jason alone.
In Going Deep, Jason changes into a self-absorbed, sadistic asshole who enjoys inflicting pain. This transformation starts when a Dom friend offers to share his Sub for a night. When Jason agrees to batter and abuse a woman he just met, a controlling jerk is born. And don't get me started on the "friend" who pimped out his girlfriend. What a prince!
Jason is introduced to Carrie, a supposedly intelligent, professional woman, who has no self respect or common sense. What rational person would allow a total stranger complete control of her physical, mental and emotional health? It was painful listening as Carrie volunteers to be degraded and humiliated.
It was also creepy hearing Jason rationalize his abusive behavior because "other people are doing it too: In our modern world, overrun with terrorists, serial killers, rapists and pedophiles, does the lame excuse "everyone else is doing it" really justify bad behavior? Even though Carrie is a willing victim, I'm appalled when exploiting people is trivialized.
Needless to say, I did not finish or enjoy this book, wishing I could clean my mind of the disturbing images. While I realize there are many more graphic novels on this subject, this attempt to portray Jason as a romantic hero is scary.
Any additional comments?
As the first book (Inside Heat) i listened to by Roz Lee i thoroughly enjoyed this listen. This story is about Jason and his new found Submissive Carrie. It is a very mild B&D story that has loads of yummy sex in it. Jason is pure Hot dominant male and i like his sexy voice that is portrayed well by Abigail Cooper's narration. Roz has an easy flowing style to her writing that i find irresistible. I'm so looking forward to more stories from the Mustangs Baseball series and hope there are many more to come.
