Abby Raines is leaving Las Vegas. She's trading the glitter and excess of her hometown for the rolling hills and lush forests of Rapid City, South Dakota. She's taken her first real job, and she's determined to succeed on her own. Mark Marsten traded the Texas range for the Army Rangers years ago and never looked back. Now he's settled permanently in Rapid City with the remaining members of his Special Forces unit. He thought he had it all - well, almost, anyway. Until a sassy redhead with a sharp tongue and body to die for rolled into town. Mark knows that he's too much for her long-term, but he can't resist a fling with Rapid City's newest resident. He thought that he knew the game. After all, it's his game. And always his rules. But more and more it feels like Abby is the one holding all the cards.

This listen is headed as Romance Contemporary with not one hint of Erotica mentioned, or the BDSM story that made up 90% of the listen, so I was very surprised that the story rapidly veered in that direction. Now don't get me wrong - I like love stories with heat, kink and sex along with the romance.... but that was the trouble - there was NO romance or passion here to dilute or balance out the kink. It's all about Tex showing and teaching Vegas how to be his Sub in THE most humiliating, degrading and uncomfortable ways.... making her his leashed dog which included taking her out in the garden crawling naked to pee. And don't get me started on the detailed enemas or the sex they had whilst she was having one!!.... just no, no, no. There was absolutely no chemistry... just one 'get on your knees' scenario after another as Vegas was totally dominated by Tex and subjected to his every sexual whim.
I've listened to my share of sub/Dom books before and they've always felt right... loving, giving and reciprocal but this listen totally missed the mark and ventured into the world of dirty and uncomfortable to listen to porn. I listened, I sped it up and I fast forwarded - all in the hopes of finding good bits but, as the credits finally rolled, I realized there just weren't ANY anywhere to be had. Dual POV's.
Worth a credit? I thought I'd be listening to a hot biker romance but instead this listen became the verbal enactment of The Dummies Guide Of How To Be A Degraded Submissive.... so no thanks, nuh-uh, no way.... I'd rather stick needles in my eyes than listen to this utter trash again - and it's put me off any further books in this series too.
Honestly, I had mixed feelings about listening to this story due to the all the negative reviews, and thought about it along time before purchasing. I enjoyed the characters from the first book, and want to hear each of their stories. This book starts off just like any other normal story.
Vegas is new in town, she's tough, can take care of herself, and she is not a push over. There's even a scene where she punches a guy for smacking her on her a**. However, after Vegas meets Tex, he helps her fix her car, and they start to have sexy thoughts about each other and she cannot deny she wants to get to know him.
As Vegas, and Tex get to know each other, their attraction for each other grows, and their first sexual encounter pushes Vegas beyond what she is comfortable with. Tex knows he will have to move slowly as he introduces her to his Dom/Sub ways because she is new to this lifestyle.
As her relationship with Tex evolves, she becomes his submission, and he trains her in all sorts sexual Dom/Sub activities. Some of these are no worse than what you read about in other stories; however, other activities are really taboo, and not something most people would try or allow someone to do them. But I had to admit during MOST of these encounters, Tex acted liked he cared for Vegas, and wanted her IN EVERY WAY from her calling him "sir," wearing a studded collar, handcuffed and chained during their "playtime" to wearing a bu++ plug all day. He would call her "pet" but really this is no worse than being call doll, sexy, baby etc. I will admit some of the sex scenes were not a turn on, had me rolling my eyes, and just thinking 'Nope! Not in this lifetime."
While there were a plethora of sexual encounters, lot's of experimenting, and way too many enema's and butt plug scene, I never felt degraded. However, I do think this story lacked the true love connection, and overwhelming attraction, between the H/h! Tex does show passion, but the story is mainly was about Vegas excepting her innermost sexual desires, her need to please Tex, which was a big turn on for her, and him teaching her more about what she likes so they can progress to the next level.
Mason Lloyd deliver an awesome performance! I really liked how he narrated each taboo scene.
Honestly, I am glad I took a chance on this story! Would this be a story I would listen to again? No! There were too many sex scenes and it became redundant. But I was happy Tex's character actually found someone who could accept, love and get turned on by his dominating ways. Also, I liked the rest of the Burnout crew was in the story, and how Vegas connected with Slick. Still like Tex's personality...at least outside the bedroom.
Do I recommend this story?..... LOL... Only to those who like kink, are not easily offended, and are confident in their own sexual desires.
