The Detective’s Pleasure

(Cuffs, Collars, and Love 02)
by

Christa Thomlinson

“You’ll kneel for me without me having to tell you to. And when you do, you’ll feel so much better. Trust me.”
– Detective Sam Roberts

Officer Ryan Bennett: Ambitious and smart, Ryan Bennett is a young officer on Houston’s police force. He’s pursuing his dream of being promoted to the city’s elite SWAT team with a single mindedness that won’t accept any outcome but success. But that isn’t his only dream. Ryan wants more than a coveted position on SWAT. He wants to be owned by a strong Dominant. To give himself up to a Dom who will make him shudder with pleasure beneath a firm yet loving hand. Unfortunately, Ryan has had nothing but failure in that part of his life. Now, he’s hidden that dream away from everyone, including himself. And he refuses to let anyone close enough to see what he truly desires, and who he truly is.

Detective Sam Roberts: Cool and calm, Detective Sam Roberts is good at reading people, during the day as a detective and at night as a Dom. He easily sees past the hard layer of arrogance surrounding Officer Ryan Bennett to the hurt submissive hiding beneath. He wants to help Ryan, even though the stubborn young man resists him. But Sam isn’t one to back down from a challenge. He’s determined to help Ryan embrace the soft, giving nature of his submissive side. Using both a gentle hand and the sting of the whip, he’ll work to coax Ryan’s submission free. But what will Sam do if he’s successful? Let Ryan go as promised? Or give the young officer the very thing he’s wanted for so long?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Cuffs, Collars and Love collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Christa shows how difficult the BDSM scene is if you really don’t know much about it. I have never really gotten into the BDSM scene but this story is amazing. It caught my attention from the moment I started eating and kept it all the way to the end. It gave me almost everything I could ask for in a story.

I had a few problems with the story that had me trying to figure things out. It didn’t really do the story justice. My main thing was the slapping, spanking yes but to slap someone is just wrong.

Ryan was a pain in the ass in the first book. He had been a sub for Logan and wanted to be his permanent sub, but Logan had chosen another. So he had done quite a bit to break them up and even outed them. All he wanted was to belong to someone. He is a strong cop but comes off weak to me. He whines about crap and pushes, kisses ass and that drove me nuts. However it is also shows me that he definitely needs to have a stronger partner.

Sam has watched Ryan break down to a point he knew he could help him. However he only wanted to help him, but he didn’t want him forever. Slowly through time though he changes his mind, but can he get Ryan to let go. I loved watching him win Ryan over.

Now like I said at first he didn’t want him forever and it made me wonder why Ryan would give him a chance. Ryan just wants to belong to someone so it didn’t make much sense to start with Sam. However I was glad that they both took a chance.

Christa is an amazing author and has a great gift at giving me a story that intrigues me and keeps me captivated. I loved the serious tone to it, but there is some humor in it but just a bit. I really enjoyed the story and can’t wait to see what is next.

I would definitely recommend this story especially if you love sexy men with a badge and a gun.

Bad Boys Need Love Too by Christa Tomlinson

Blurb: “You won’t let anybody else have you, Joseph. I won’t let anybody else have you. I want you all to myself.” – Gage Mason

We’ve all had our experience with him. The Bad Boy. The one we’ve been warned about. The one with rips in his jeans and a lazy, devil may care smile on his mouth. The one who makes you do bad things that feel so good.

For me it was Gage Mason. We met when he worked on my Ducati. I knew immediately he was trouble, but something about that Bad Boy drew me in. Maybe it’s his dark eyes that study me like he wants to know everything about me. Maybe it’s the way he makes me feel; the rough touch of his hands, his possessive grip on my hair when we kiss, the way he feels deep inside me. Or maybe it’s the way he needs me, even though he won’t admit it.

For once in my life, I’m taking a risk. Despite everything that tells me I shouldn’t, I’m taking a chance to be with Gage. I don’t know if it will end well, but I do know I can’t resist that Bad Boy.
Joseph Naderi

Reviewer: KathyMac

Review: Christa Tomlinson has written a very HOT, addicting, and powerful book titled Bad Boys Need Love Too. And, wow…do they ever. This is 400+ pages of excitement with crazed, explosive, and a no holds barred relationship between two men who, under most circumstances, would not fit together. But, these two do fit and they belong together. They bring out the best and the worst in each other. The entire story they will keep you enthralled and you will be cheering them on to make it work.

This book is about pretty boy, Joseph Naderi, and bad boy, Gage Mason. One- a well-dressed, well-versed, college graduate lawyer and the other- a greasy t-shirt, ripped jeans, dirty fingernails, motorcycle mechanic and shop owner. Vinegar and water, right? They meet at Gage’s bike shop when Joseph, owner of a Ducati, has problems with his bike and through a friends recommendation sends him to Gage. They immediately start off on the wrong foot with Joseph being rude not realizing Gage is the owner and not just a grunge worker.

Even with Gage having his hackles raised from this pretty boy, he recognizes his passion and he’s not put off by his attitude. As a matter of fact, he likes that Joseph has a temper lurking behind his fancy business suit. He also notices that Joseph is checking him out and there is a spark definitely simmering there to be poked.

Joseph can’t get Gage out of his mind. His work is suffering by his constant daydreaming and he knows Gage is not someone he needs in his life now, maybe ever. That doesn’t stop him from wanting him and he decides to make a move. Hearing Gage over the phone just cements his curiosity and decision to test the waters. I just hope he can swim because one night out with Gage will make him feel like he is drowning.

Gage has had a pretty rough life. He has experienced death and destruction too many times and it has jaded his personality. He is a playboy going from one bed partner to the next. It doesn’t matter if it’s male or female. Whoever is available to find his release works for him. He wants Joseph, he wants him bad, and he is going to get him. Turning him down for dinner is not even in the equation. Gage just didn’t realize that he would become consumed with Joseph. What was once normal behaviors will not work if he wants a chance with this smart and gorgeous man. Will Gage, the bad boy, be able to hold onto Joseph, the good boy, who is very pretty and in a class of his own?

Gage is a domineering, in your face, alpha male and does not apologize for it. He appears confident and cocky but underneath his brass exterior, he is insecure and carries many years of hurt and guilt over things not his fault. Joseph is a contradiction, as well, because to the folks on the outside looking in, they see an educated, 3 piece designer suit who works lots of hours hoping to make partner one day while moving up the corporate ladder. And, Joseph does love being a lawyer. He put himself through college when his father disowned him for being gay and cut off all ties to the family. For 6 years, he has been on his own and made his own success. He’s worked hard and plans to reap the benefits. However, his true passion is racing motorcycles and Gage can see the difference in Joseph. He lights up and has so much passion when he’s on the track. The lawyer world, Gage doesn’t understand. The motorcycle world…oh yeah, right up his alley. With some help and encouragement, Gage will try to convince Joseph the track is where he belongs.

One date leads to two and so on and Joseph knows he’s getting too deep. He tries to be strong willed when Gage is around but he succumbs to his dominating personality every time. The sex between them is explosive, it’s frequent, it’s raw and dirty, and it is H O T!!!!

Sometimes it seems if they aren’t having sex, they are fighting and arguing. And their fights are just as volatile and rough as their sex life. Joseph is showing Gage than he can have a partner, a love life with only one person, and a happy home. Joseph gives everything to Gage and he only expects one thing in return. Monogamy. Joseph wants to be the only one in Gage’s life, and if he’s not, then he is going to walk…away. Gage doesn’t know if he can make that commitment. He doesn’t want to lose Joseph, but he is who he is for a reason.

“Joseph, calm down and listen to me. I’m not sleeping with anyone else. I’m only with you. I like what we have. Why do we have to put a goddamn label on it? We don’t need to be official, whatever the hell that even means, for us to have fun and great sex. So what if we don’t spend the night together? Let’s just enjoy each other’s company both in bed and out for as long as we want. That’s all a relationship really is anyway, right?”

He has always been a manipulating, jealous, and possessive bastard. Those traits make many appearances throughout this story. That doesn’t bother Joseph and he admits he likes those things about Gage. Joseph, however, wants a relationship with all the attachments like sleeping and staying in the same bed, living together and love. Whether Gage will be able to give him those things, he’s not sure. This is new territory for him being devoted to only person. What Gage doesn’t seem to pick up on is he is already changing and giving those things to Joseph. Admitting it to himself is harder to do than doing the deed itself.

Gage leaned against the wall next to his friend. “So, what do you really think?”
“He’s pretty like you said. I can see why you want to play with him.” Max took a drink of his beer before he continued. “But I don’t think you should.”
“Why not?”
“Open your eyes, Gage. That boy is into you and not just in the way, those hood rats you bang are. Besides, one look at him and it’s obvious he’s not one who’s okay with just playing around. And if that’s all you want to do, you need to let him go.”

As the story continues, both Gage and Joseph will have to cross many hurdles. There will be more fights and disagreements before a truce is made. Gage will have to reach deep within and lay his burdens down, exposing his soul to Joseph. It takes a lot of trust but he feels better for being open and honest. Joseph is a very caring and compassionate man. He will embrace Gage, faults and all, and give all he’s got to save him and help him heal. Sometimes that comes with rough and angry sex resulting in bite marks and nail scrapes but whatever it takes, he’s willing.

gage and joseph BAD BOYSThis is my first time reading a novel by Christa Tomlinson. I enjoyed it immensely and look forward to her other books. The story line is fast paced with a lot of action and drama that will keep you invested from start to finish. She doesn’t shy away from sex scenes that include dirty talk and visual details, which I appreciate. And, they are frequent and plentiful throughout the story. But, even so, they were placed appropriately and advanced the story forward. This was not the case of adding a sex scene for filler and word count. Each time Joseph and Gage had sex it was because their attraction and chemistry was off the charts. Or, because one or the other was hurting and needed that connection.

Ms. Tomlinson has written a very engaging story and I connected immediately to her writing style and to her characters. She writes very descriptive narrative giving you, the reader, a visual of places and events. I felt the execution of the plot was very well done and moved forward seamlessly. I never felt like the story became stagnant or back peddled. There are moments that will have you in tears because you don’t want to see or read the hurts they have been through. But more so, you will laugh and keep a smile on your face because there is humor and the banter between Joseph and Gage is hilarious more often than not. Gage may be a big bad alpha but Joseph has no problem keeping him in line.

Once you start, you will not want to put it down. There is just enough angst to give you the inside scoop but not so much that you feel like you are wiped out by the end. There are many good and exiting things that will take place leaving you with much elation. The author even closes up some past misunderstandings the guys are trying to work through and brings the situation full circle.

A much recommended read in my opinion with more than everything you could want in an erotic, romance m/m story. Trust me when I say the sex is more explosive than C4 and the feels you have when you finish will no doubt leave a big smile across your face.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This is part of a series, but can be enjoyed as a standalone, but your experience will be enhanced by reading The Sergeant first. This was a really hot little book that smokes most BDSM books out of the water. I love the fact that even though they are both macho men who carry guns and are probably the strongest men I have ever come across. Clay and Logan had gone through the hard times, and most were ok with it. However, their commander seemed to want to punish them by making them work Christmas. Clay had a fantasy and Logan was going to make it come true for him.

This was a fascinating little Christmas story and I had a blast reading it. There was so much feeling put into such a short dynamic story that was one amazing good read. I loved the first book and I have got to tell you that this one was even better than the first. I think for me, it was the fact that Logan gave Clay something he asked for. I look forward to reading the rest of Christa’s books.
