What happens in the dungeon doesn't stay in the dungeon.
"My sex stuff wouldn't make my father happy, but the feds didn't mind it at all. In fact, the official story was that I was the ex-boytoy of some now-disgraced Chinese billionaire. The gay wasn't an issue. Even the BDSM wasn't an issue. The issue was money-laundering. As long as they saw me as just another party boy, I was safe."
Or so he thinks. And then 22-year-old reformed bad boy Shale Shelby becomes involved with an A-list Hollywood action star with a strong taste for dominating younger men. His life may never be the same.
..."I really don't think it's a good idea for me to get involved with the fans, you know?"
The fans? "You're really in love with yourself, aren't you?"
"Don't pretend you would be here if I wasn't in the movies."
"You're in the movies?"
"What did I just say about playing stupid? There's a lot of models I could have in my bed right now if I wanted stupid."
"You're pretty enough to be in the movies." I looked him over. Yeah, I could definitely see this one as some kind of star. Those dimples were quality.
"Stop. Just stop. I don't need a lot of honesty from a blowjob, but I need that much."
"OK, OK, you're in the movies, and I'm your stalker, and you had to capture me and teach me a lesson. Maybe you better handcuff me again. I don't think the last lesson took."
"I really should ask you to leave." But we both knew he didn't want to.
I snuggled close. "All right. Name one movie I've seen you in."
He named five.
Oh fuck. I sat up and took his head in my two hands. Turned it this way and that to study him from every angle. "I just thought you were a guy who looks like him," I said.
Reaction Shot is a steamy, kinky read with an action packed storyline starring a dominant Hollywood star. I was going back and forth between three and four stars for this book's rating, so I eventually settled on 3.5 stars rounded up to four stars. The storyline is interesting, but it felt rather rushed. The suspense part of the story confused me at times and I feel that this book would benefit from being a bit longer so that everything could be padded out with more detail. Having said all that though, I still enjoyed this book. I liked the BDSM scenes, and I can forgive the lack of safe words etc as it gave the book a grittier, raw edge. I'm not going to go into any detail on the plot itself, as I'm finding it very hard not to accidentally include spoilers. This is an entertaining, sexy story that receives 3.5 stars.
I received a free copy of this book from the author via IndiGo Marketing & Design in exchange for a honest review.
I ran away to Vegas. Now I’m running from it.
