Blurb: In a life time of yes, no is the sexiest word he’s ever heard.
After one too many misunderstandings with the law, wealthy and spoiled David Beauchamp finds himself chained to the city by the GPS and alcohol sensor strapped to his ankle. Awaiting trial, cut off from usual forms of entertainment, he goes looking for a good time—and winds up with his hands full, in more ways than one. The situation only gets more complicated when he’s summoned for a random drug test and comes face-to-face with the dominant man who took him for one hell of a ride the night before.
Probation Officer Tai Fonoti is used to handling other people’s problems, but he’s horrified when one of the extra clients his boss dumps on him is the sweet piece of ass he screwed the night before. It makes getting a urine sample a pretty loaded situation. Tai’s unique brand of discipline has Beach craving more. But while Tai relishes laying down the law in the bedroom, the letter of the law stands between them and kinkily ever after….
This book was my definitely favorite of the series so far! I didn’t expect to like this one as much as I did because I wasn’t a huge Beach fan in previous books but you really get to see Beach outside of his craziness. It was interesting to see how Beach is before he meets Tai and then how he is after they’re together for a while. Beach would be antsy one minute and then Tai would calm him the next. I adored the connection between Tai and Beach and the scenes they had together were so intense and intimate, I felt like I fell more in love with them each time they were together and I loved seeing their journey into a D/s relationship especially since Beach was so new to it.
Add to that, I really liked Tai as a character. He was so grounded but he has his own issues. It was intriguing to see how it wasn’t just Beach who was really affected by a D/s relationship but how much Tai realized he really needed one… but at the same time, I loved seeing them both realize that they didn’t want a D/s relationship with anyone but each other. I just couldn’t get over these two. Once I started the book, I couldn’t put it down! I wanted more and more and I wished we had gotten even more of them especially seeing how they are after they really settle into their new relationship and roles… especially to see how it affects, if it does, Tai’s career and Beach being on probation.
While I absolutely adored this book, there was just a bit too much sex for my liking… which is so hypocritical of me because this one definitely has the most sex out of the whole series and it’s my favorite! But the connection that Beach and Tai have during their scenes made up for how much smut there was. Add to that, I missed that we didn’t get to see Tai meeting all the guys. I’ve gotten used to everyone getting together to see the ‘new man’ in whoever’s life and I missed that we didn’t get that with this one. Yes, Tai does meet everyone but it just wasn’t the same as if Beach had brought him along to show him off LOL
Overall, this was a phenomenal story. I was sucked in right from the start and I couldn’t put it down. I love Beach and how messed up he is but I also loved Tai and how he grounded Beach like nothing else could. These two went through so much and I loved every minute of it and I couldn’t get enough of their D/s relationship. I hope it’s not the last we see of these two and hope there’s more to come of this series!
Overall Impression: I loved it!
