I doubt I will be continuing the series. There was too much that didn’t work for me. However, if you’re in the mood for a quickie read with a dash of BDSM, then this one is something that may work for you. ~ Under the Covers
Dom Wars was a book that was highly recommended to me on our Facebook page so I jumped at the chance at reading it. Now, this is quite the unusal book. First of all, the premise will either intrigue you or repulse you. I think I experienced a little bit of both.
The idea is that there is this reality TV style show called Dom Wars where Lucian Bane goes to try to be the top dom. Why? I haven’t the slightest clue but I was intrigued by the idea regardless. However upon starting the book, I was hit by a lot of confusion. First of all, Lucian’s narration sounds very different than what I thought it would be. It couldn’t tell if it was a girl or guy a lot of the times and Tara seemed a little unsure at times as well.
While the sex isn’t bad, I found that the way the book was carried out was too out there for me. I had to suspend a lot of belief and I think that kind of ruined the experience for me a little bit. I thought it was kinda cute how Tara was so inexperienced and got her instructions from a BDSM manual on her e-reader, but again, because of that, it made dealing with the hardcore aspects of BDSM seem farfetched since she was virtually clueless right before.
I doubt I will be continuing the series. There was too much that didn’t work for me. However, if you’re in the mood for a quickie read with a dash of BDSM, then this one is something that may work for you.
