Book 50/Suncoast Society series. Tymber Dalton rocks yet another BDSM romance as only she can!
This Moody Bastard begins as another of Ms. Dalton's holiday-themed BDSM private party books. But this time it's more than just about the party (the "Kinky (Vibrating) Eggstravaganza Party," for Easter, of course). The tale expands beyond the normal kinky party fun & frivolity & delves deeper into the lives of Cali, Max & Sean, last heard from in Happy Spank Patrick's Day. If you've read that book, you'll remember they're considering a momentous decision that, if they go through with it, will change their lives forever. They believe they're not ready to have children, not now, not ever. Rather than keep Cali on birth control & deal the very real potential complications from that, Max & Sean are thinking about having vasectomies. But this would be permanent. There wouldn't be any going back. They need to be certain this is what they truly want. In the days leading up to the party, once again being hosted by Cali, Max & Sean, the trio are as busy as proverbial "bunnies." Two Crafty Bastards, their online BDSM toy/equipment store, is ramping up for the holiday. Cali's about to tear out her hair with Sean's antics, insane ideas for the website header, holiday promotions & just about everything else to do with the holiday & business! But despite his shenanigans, Sean's just not Sean. He's the cheery, playful, free spirit of the three. Lately he just hasn't been himself. Even when Cali surprises him with arrangements to act as a demo rope bunny with Leah at Venture & the promise of some really great, silly, absolutely over-the-top costume shots for the website header (something Sean would normally be dancing for joy about), he's just...not. Something's obviously bothering him. Moodiness is just NOT Sean. Cali & Max are concerned but even Sean can't verbalize what's wrong. The following Friday, just a little over two weeks from the party, Sean & Max are ready to move forward with the vasectomies. All three have done a lot of soul searching since their realization & have talked about all the possibilities. They all know that constant communication, completely open & honest conversations & totally forthright opinions, no matter how hard the decision, are absolutely key to both successful polyamorous & BDSM relationships. Since theirs is both, communication is all the more important. Being truthful, open & willing to lay their deepest feelings out in the open for each other, they make the final decision. So, with Cali driving them, Max & Sean are off for their vasectomies. A few hours later, all three are back home, the procedures done & the pressure is seemingly off. But in the ensuing weeks, as the men heal & the three prepare for the party, emotions run high & pop out at the most unexpected of times. Cali keeps asking the men if they're really okay with their decision. Both Max & Sean, separately & together, wonder if Cali really knows her own mind. Each one is convinced that he or she will never be parent material. It's their love, devotion & care for each other that makes them question whether the decision was the right one for the other two. Then the past returns to haunt all three. Cali's ex, Shane, returns to town. The man she devoted eight long years to, who ran off & left her homeless & penniless, returns with a new woman on his arm, wanting his membership at Venture reinstated. As if that wasn't bad enough, Sean's & Max's ex also makes a reappearance. The very last thing that Sean & Max want in their heads is the sight of Lydia, the woman who destroyed their lives years before. Can Cali, Max & Sean put their past behind them for good & move forward? Will they regret the decisions they've made? The future seems so uncertain. They've worked so long & so hard to make not only their business a success but to build their lives & love into something so unique & precious. Surely one, two, or even three "moody bastards" can work this out, can't they? Tymber Dalton has the heart & soul of a storyteller. As always, she's crafted a story filled with drama, love, laughter, tears, joy, heartbreak, a literal cornucopia of real & genuine emotions. The characters she creates are so real you have no problem knowing if you met them in any city, village, or town in the country, you would immediately be friends with them. That she has the ability to weave all these elements together as effortlessly as she does shows just how much she has mastered her craft. This Moody Bastard is yet another amazing entry into the Suncoast Society series. As I've said in every review I've ever written for Ms. Dalton's books, the fact that she has been an active participant in the BDSM lifestyle for many years only adds to the authenticity of the characters & details of the lifestyle in her novels. But her books aren't just about BDSM. But her books aren't just about BDSM. They're about so much more...real people making real choices & decisions, living their daily lives with all the day-to-day problems, delights, disappointments, ups, downs & all other aspects that everyone deals with. She can draw any reader in from the very beginning. Her skill as an author is exceptional. The entire Suncoast Society series is amazing & This Moody Bastard is yet another worthy addition to the series. If you enjoy hot, erotic BDSM romances with truly believable, fully-developed characters and situations, I highly recommend This Moody Bastard. I give it my highest recommendation without reservation. Thanks for reading my review & happy reading!
