My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I love Rachel Robinson's writing, she does the feels and angst so well and the blurb for this one had me intrigued! Alas, it wasn't all that I'd hoped. And I really wanted to like this more but I had a hard time connecting with the MCs.
Kayla Parchet was strong, smart and independent. Her innate nature just didn't work well for a submissive. It's not that submissives are weak but rather they want to surrender. Kayla's just not that type of girl. She's all about control. So why enter the Dom Games? For the money for her Harvard education. Can't hold that against the woman and I don't.
She's one of 10 submissives vying for the top spot as the Dom's submissive for life. The Dom for this season's games is none other than the creator and producer of the show, Dominic Reed.
Of course, Kayla begins to have feelings for Dominic, and he for her. This is where I couldn't make that leap. They certainly had chemistry but I just didn't feel the love connection. And Dominic just didn't work as an Alpha or a Dom for me. He was a contradiction of sorts...I won't give it away but this was not a pill that I could easily swallow.
Overall, the plot was an original twist on the ever popular relationship reality TV shows and it's well written with some serious sex scenes, drama, jealousy and angst.

“Are you ready?” I ask, placing my palm on her sweaty stomach. She’s so petite that my hand spans her entire stomach. It rises and falls with each deep breath she takes. This power I feel right now is utter heaven. She’s mine in every way possible, and no one can deny it. Fury of possession and lust hit me. I don’t want to hold back any longer.
Kayla nods. Gritting my teeth, I unfasten her gag and pull it away with a long strand of spit connecting it to her mouth. Her lips part and close a few times as she adjusts to the new sensation.
Lips. They’re such innocuous things in real life. They speak, and laugh. They kiss babies, and are responsible for filtering or not filtering every word you ever speak. In my world, this world, they’re the most erotic, beautiful, stunning part of a person. Lips praise. They suck and kiss and worship my body. Kayla’s lips worship me. I am obsessed with lips, but especially hers right now because I know that this isn’t her life, nor is it something she would pick for herself, yet her lips are asking me for more. Words passing her lips about how good I feel, how wet she is, thanking me for filling her with a vibrating dildo. It’s uncomplicated in here. She obeys. She wants more.
Removing the gag does give me pause, because she could potentially say something un-sub like and ruin the scene, but at this point I wouldn’t even care, I’ll still fuck her. My cock is heavy and dripping with pre-come. I glance at the large, digital clock to my right to make sure my timing is on par and catch sight of the crew.
