Great series, fairytale role-playing with a BDSM twist. HOT, quick and easy to read.
"He laughed without humor. She refused to date The Geek, but she’d do whatever The Wolf ordered."
This was another great, deliciously sexy read in the Once Upon a Dom series. Lucy’s story didn’t start where the first one left off. Instead, it took place parallel to the first book, but from Lucy and Graham’s POV. That approach was executed very well because huge chunks of Jaimie and Bryce’s story wasn’t used as filler (it was nice seeing them through this couple’s eyes though), and it made this readable as a standalone.
I liked Lucy in the first book, and the way she nudged her best friend along to how protective she was of Jaimie. This time we got to see a different side of her. She was divorced, but her cheating ex-husband turned her off completely to geeky men. Even sexy ones. As we learned in book one, Lucy worked for Bryce, and Graham was the company VP. And a geek with a secret. There was a bit of backstory that established Graham and Lucy’s relationship, all the way down to the deception, quite believably.
I loved the contrast between their interactions in the office and at the BDSM masquerade weekend. They were like night and day, to the point that Lucy toed the line of coming across as…mean. They didn’t waste time getting down to the point of the weekend, which means there was a lot of sex. They did talk, but that was told rather than shown. The scenes were all very hot, especially the one in the clearing that Jaimie had been privy to.
Their only hurdle being that Graham didn’t know how to reveal himself to Lucy was left up until the very end. The big reveal didn’t go down like I thought it would. It was even better than I’d expected! I love Lucy, ha!
So far I’m really digging this series. Don’t mistake this for a re-written fairytale with a BDSM twist though. It’s all role-playing, with hot sex, and a bit of drama thrown in for the characters to find their HEA. If you’re looking for hot, quick and easy to read, then you’ll enjoy this.
