Suncoast Society Book #48. Another amazing BDSM erotic romance by Tymber Dalton!
Fire in the Hole is the 48th book in the Suncoast Society BDSM series. If you haven't read the previous books, each book in the series is a standalone novel, although you'll understand the characters' backstories better if you read them in order. There's a complete listing of the series, in order, at the beginning of each Suncoast Society book. Lara Cannon's life seems perfect. Although she's divorcing her husband, Everett, it's very amicable. In fact, Ev is still her best friend. Sure, he's gay. That's why they're divorcing. But she adores Ev & his boyfriend, Wylie. She has a good job as a realtor & a handsome, rich fiancé, Steve Ewing. Everything seems perfect! That is, until the final divorce hearing. Lara asks Steve to stay away. It's simple. They'll sign the papers. The divorce will be final. But Steve insists on coming. That's the first mistake. Steve's put downs, condescending attitude & constant criticism of Lara suddenly jump out at her like never before. Yes, when she thinks about it, it's always been there from the beginning. She'd just overlooked it. When Ev & Wylie invite Lara for dinner, Lara accepts, with Steve insisting on going too. That's the second mistake. After a chance meeting at the restaurant, Ev & Wylie's neighbors, Brad & his son, Mark, join them. Brad Jarred appears to be a typical Florida Cracker cowboy. Dressed in faded jeans, a short-sleeved button-up work shirt, work boots & a baseball cap, he's very polite & answers all Steve's ill-mannered questions. He's as handsome as he is polite. But he's far from what he appears to be. Lara feels an instant attraction to him. Her irritation at Steve continues to grow & when Steve finally starts in on Ev & Wylie being gay, Lara explodes. It's bad enough he's insulted everyone else. But Steve's homophobia is the last straw. As Steve grabs Lara & orders her to leave with him, she pulls off her engagement ring, lays it on the table & makes it clear the engagement is off. Brad feels the same attraction Lara feels & they quickly become an item. But there's a problem. Lara's supposed to move in with Steve that weekend & her apartment's already rented. Worse, there're no other apartments available. Brad comes to the rescue, offering to let Lara stay with him & Mark until she can make other arrangements. But how will Mark feel about Lara moving in with them? Neither he nor his dad know her at all. Mark has a secret that he has no idea how to tell anyone. Who can he tell, when & how? While Lara's grateful for Brad's offer, there's no guarantee that this arrangement will work. And Lara's definitely not heard the last from Steve. To top things off, Brad & Lara learn about Ev & Wylie's BDSM lifestyle. Will this affect Lara's friendship with her ex & his lover? While Lara is intrigued, that hardly means that Brad will be interested! With each person's individual questions, dilemmas & uncertainty, what does the future hold for Lara & her new life? Ms. Dalton has done it yet again. She's created a story filled with drama, laughter, tears, joy & suspense. She's intertwined each person's story to fit together so skillfully that it seems effortless. Fire in the Hole is a story full of genuine people. The emotions I felt for each character were deep & heartfelt. I alternately laughed & cried until tears blurred my vision. That's just how well-created the characters are. Ms. Dalton's books ALWAYS have the ability to pull me in from the very beginning. Her skill as an author is exceptional. Ms. Dalton is one the few authors who is an automatic buy for me whenever she publishes a new book. She is just that amazing! If you enjoy the erotic romance genre, you'll absolutely LOVE Fire in the Hole. I highly recommend this book and give it my highest rating without reservation!
