Everett and Solan first meet when Everett wins an auction that Solan placed himself in as a joke. After a brief conversation with Solan's sister, Solan agrees to be Everett's companion for 3 months instead of a full year.

Everett knows that Solan isn't ready for the real purpose of being his "B" companion and gives him time and space to get used to the idea of having to do so. Until one day, Everett is desperate and decides to use the donor company he previously frequented. Solan finds out and is instantly jealous and Everett is using someone else for his needs that Solan has yet to meet. Solan caves and thus begins the intimate moments that neither of them can ignore.

When Solan finally lets down his walls, their relationship becomes so beautiful (and spicy!) Even with the bit of danger thrown in, it doesn't take away from their story.

I picked this off of Kindle Unlimited as I wanted to read a M/M romance having not read one before . This was not the one for me. If I removed all the very repetitive sex scenes, there wasn’t much left to the book.

I received An Officer’s Submission from the Goodreads Don’t Buy My Love program. It’s the third book in the ‘Cuffs, Collars and Love’ series. The story is told in third person through the MC’s eyes, Clay and Logan.

2.5 Stars



I have to mention that I didn’t read the other books in the series before reading this one. I was told this could be read as a stand-alone but I’d miss out on how the MCs met. I’ll have to disagree and say this isn’t a stand-alone. It felt like I was dropped into the middle of an ongoing story and was confused at the beginning and really didn’t feel drawn to the couple. It could’ve been because there’s a lot of telling going on, especially at the beginning. I had to restrain myself from skimming because all the telling was boring. It wasn’t as prevalent in the story after the attack, which is when the action picked up, because of more dialogue. But when it shifted back to monologue, the author reverted to telling again.

As I mentioned, there’s a lot of telling and because of that, I wasn’t drawn into the story or the characters as much as I wanted. Part of the issue for me, was that Clay came across more like a woman. I don’t mean feminine, but like a female character and I’m not sure why. It started from the very beginning of the story as soon as he started to think/speak. My mind immediately pictured a woman and I had difficulty imagining Clay as a male for the rest of the story. I’ve read stories where men are submissives or abused or effeminate, and they didn’t come across like a woman, so I don’t know why Clay did. I didn’t get that impression with Logan. Anyway, Clay coming across as a woman also blunted my enjoyment of this story since I read MM for a reason.

My interest in this story didn’t pick up until the attack on Clay happened and ended at its resolution. I understand the additional chapters at the end tied up the loose ends, but they dragged along. There is also one chapter where the font size was huge, about three times the size of the rest of the book. I think it was chapter twenty-two or thereabouts. The BDSM in this story is on the mild side, infrequent and also included a lot of telling.

The topics the author spoke about in this story were important topics, but because of the telling instead of showing and Clay who sounded like a woman, made it difficult for me to identify with the characters or pull me into the story. The ending chapters dragged. I want to give An Officer’s Submission, 2.5 Stars, but since Goodreads doesn’t allow half stars I will give it 3 Stars.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

This book was HOT! The chemistry between Joseph and Gage was off the charts. Seriously. I could feel the sexual energy steaming off the page with these two!

Joseph is a suit wearing lawyer with long hair who likes to race motorcycles. He is sweet and shy, he is wild and determined. He is almost like a contradiction in so many ways. Gage is owns a motorcycle repair shop and is all bad boy. He does not do commitment, is a recovering drug addict, and has anger issues. Joseph totally gets under his skin real quick, and he finds himself in a situation of wanting only Joseph, but being afraid to actually commit.

The book is long, which isn't a bad thing, but there is a TON of sex in it. I love sex in my books, so this isn't necessarily a bad thing, but there was so much that I ended up wanting to skim through some of it to get to the story. Joseph and Gage were not on the same page for a bunch of the book; Joseph wanted commitment, Gage was afraid to open up. While the sexual chemistry between them was amazing, I wanted to get to the story of how they got through it, not have endless sex scenes. It took a while, but we finally learned more about what made Gage who he is today. Joseph, while saying he understood and was sympathetic, made mistakes in how he handled things between them. As I said, it took a while to get there, but when the guys finally got on the same page and figured out how to make things work, the struggle to get there seemed worth it. I don't think they would have been able to find peace and a forever connection without the challenges they faced.

I loved this book. I definitely want to read the next ones in the series.
