OrangeReviewStarThis third book in the "Subs Club" series features goofy, gorgeous submissive Kamen navigating love, new kinks, and the many minor terrors known cumulatively as "adulting." Though he's not considered the brightest bulb among his friends, Kamen knows he's found something good in his relationship with dominant partner Ryan. Subs Club buddies and confidants Miles, Gould, and Dave, however, don't love Ryan's brash nature or his perceived ambivalence toward their friend. Hal's death and accuse the couple of isolating themselves in their "honeymoon" stage of domestic bliss. Add to that a newfound interest in pony play, and Kamen finds himself growing up rapidly, but he isn't quite sure what, or whom, he might end up leaving behind. Rock has a knack for infusing even the naughtiest of sex scenes with humor and sweetness. Each episode sparkles with warmth and wit, whether it's friendly banter during Subs Club meetings, poignant discussions of grief, or Ryan and Kamen discovering a shared panty kink.
VERDICT Recommended for M/M erotica fans looking for edgier fetish depictions, with vibrant writing and plenty of laughs.
