Firstly, I made a terrible mistake of starting this book before bedtime and at midnight I was saying to myself "ohhh just another chapter"..... then a..Show More »t 2 a.m. I'm wondering "well how are they all going to set out the ground-rules"..... then by 4 a.m. I'm thinking "wow lucky lucky girl but how's it going to work out for all of them"..... and finally by 6 a.m. I've decided "sleep is overrated huh who needs it"..... Then finally the birds started singing as the dawn broke and I thought "ahhhh lovely."
As you can see this was a non-stop listen for me as this very tender ménage starts to unfold with 2 sexy handsome successful baseball stars and a nurse who decide to share their lives with very hot consequences. Yes, it was full of passion and sex (I have however heard far worse) but it was sooo much more. A touching thought provoking tryst that unfortunately can't go the distance when more than hot sex is at play and everyone becomes miserable when love joins the game.
It also focuses on a few baseball games as their feelings are stretched and the games suffer and we hear about Megan's work in the paediatric ward. It's a lovely listen that will pull at your heart strings because you will find yourself empathising with all three of them as the storyline flows from erotica and enters into a true love story.
Worth a credit? Absolutely yes, and I'm really looking forward to the next game in the Mustang series.
Since I thoroughly enjoyed the 1st book, I was looking forward to the 2nd in this series about major league baseball players. In Inside Heat, twin bro..Show More »thers Jeff and Jason have an 18 month relationship with Megan. The twins treated Megan with gentleness and respect until Jeff & Megan fell in love, leaving Jason alone.
In Going Deep, Jason changes into a self-absorbed, sadistic asshole who enjoys inflicting pain. This transformation starts when a Dom friend offers to share his Sub for a night. When Jason agrees to batter and abuse a woman he just met, a controlling jerk is born. And don't get me started on the "friend" who pimped out his girlfriend. What a prince!
Jason is introduced to Carrie, a supposedly intelligent, professional woman, who has no self respect or common sense. What rational person would allow a total stranger complete control of her physical, mental and emotional health? It was painful listening as Carrie volunteers to be degraded and humiliated.
It was also creepy hearing Jason rationalize his abusive behavior because "other people are doing it too: In our modern world, overrun with terrorists, serial killers, rapists and pedophiles, does the lame excuse "everyone else is doing it" really justify bad behavior? Even though Carrie is a willing victim, I'm appalled when exploiting people is trivialized.
Needless to say, I did not finish or enjoy this book, wishing I could clean my mind of the disturbing images. While I realize there are many more graphic novels on this subject, this attempt to portray Jason as a romantic hero is scary.
