Review: Limits and Stakes by Jacqueline Grey



Author: Jacqueline Grey
Series: Suit of Harte’s #3

Pages: 113


Professor Danny Stone doesn’t date students. Though the university does not forbid such relationships, he’d rather be safe than sorry, but with his sparkling blue eyes and silky blond hair, Christopher Owen is a temptation begging him to break the rules. He already bent them when he kissed Chris over winter break.

Spring break will be different. Danny’s plan is to spend the week at a BDSM club a few towns over. Playing with a sub or two who have no connection to his university will do him a world of good, and he can put Chris out of his mind.

But when the first sub that catches his eye turns out to be Christopher, Danny’s willpower is put to the ultimate test. Chris is brand new to the scene and feels safest with Danny. Will Danny be able to introduce him to the wonders of BDSM without crossing too many lines? Or will fate pull them together and show them sometimes rules are destined to be broken?

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Erotica: Danny Stone is a teacher who enjoys his dominant role during his free time. But he has some rules: no students and keep some distance from his place of work when practising the lifestyle. That’s why he traveled several miles to spend his spring break in a BDSM club. He wasn’t expecting to find there Chris, a student to whom he shouldn’t spare a second glance. But not only he gives him a look… he offers himself to teach the younger guy the way of a good submissive. Will his rules resist against the raging passion of their new dynamics? If you don’t fall asleep, you will get to know…

zZz: Is this book as bad as the first one? Nope. But it is still a bunch of unremarkable situations with uncharismatic characters. There is nothing to hook the reader. Thankfully it is short enough to get rid of it before getting too annoyed. The best word to describe the book would be: meh.

Bad cast, Angry: The characters doesn’t have anything special at all. Nothing that could catch my attention and make the reading somehow enjoyable. Very basic. Danny is practically a copy of Dillon, but without the muscles (that would make him even worse, right?). And the way the BDSM stuff is presented is not my cup of tea at all. Some Dom/Sub dynamic to spice thing up in the naughty moments is OK. But what we have here is an utter disregard towards Chris’ freedom in almost every aspect of his life. At the end, more than a boyfriend he looks like a pet…
