Publisher's Summary

Too many penalties may leave the goal vulnerable without the Iron Cross.

After overcoming a potentially career-ending concussion, Tyler Vanek, Dartmouth Cobras' first line forward, couldn't be happier with his life. Until his boyhood hero worship for Raif Zovko, a newly acquired player, develops into more. His mistress, "Chicklet", encourages him to explore his feelings, and with her enjoyment of toying with the powerful Dom, Tyler figures it might be fun.

Laura Tallent, a dedicated officer with the Halifax PD and Chicklet's first sub, is tired of Tyler's fun disrupting the structure of her world. Devotion to her mistress kept her silent for two years, but a horrible case and more proof that Tyler is the worst sub in existence has her wondering how much better life would be if he was someone else's problem. Someone like Raif.

Raif won't deny the lust he feels for Tyler, but he refuses to play games with a young man who's questioning his sexuality - he won't be an experimental phase for an unruly submissive. But when Laura draws him into a plan to remove Tyler from her poly relationship with Chicklet, his protective instincts take over. He partners with Chicklet to protect Tyler and dig deeper into the reasons behind Laura's scheming. Chicklet clearly loves her boy; she won't let him go. And before long Raif realizes neither can he.

Blindsided by the discord in her household, Chicklet struggles to fulfill her subs' needs as their careers throw challenges at them all. Control is slipping from her hands, but with Raif by her side, she prays her relationships can be saved. Salvaging the future means rebuilding with a new foundation. But the only way to make the base solid is for them all to work together. And with all the secrecy and lies, she has no idea where to start.

Kinky and dramatic

This author is excellent at describing an ideal BDSM lifestyle, meaning participants are omnisexual, tolerant, passionate and loyal; and all play is SSC and focused on player's needs.

Scenes are hot, hot, hot.

I love the characters and the surrounding drama. Even the hockey team setting is done well.

Narration is good.

My only issues are:
- the author spends a great deal of time on the build up, but as soon as the angst is over, the story ends immediately - if the reader was one of her characters, one climax only, no after care and the author rolled over and went to sleep. Not cool. Unfulfilling endings in this series.
- even after living with the characters for several books, it's still confusing to have so many characters being referred to with 2 or 3 different names at different times

Great Narrator for Amazing story

Would you listen to Iron Cross again? Why?

Most definitely

Which character – as performed by Jim Frangione – was your favorite?

Casey... I love her scenes to begin with, but that little girl sass from the narrator, just priceless

Any additional comments?

I have loved Tyler and Chicklet from the first book. Was so happy they got their own book. Loved it even more in audio format.

dissapointed with this one

What would have made Iron Cross better?

if Chicklette & Raif wasn't selfish well that's how i saw them

Has Iron Cross put you off other books in this genre?

no

What about Jim Frangione’s performance did you like?

i enjoyed the other books

What character would you cut from Iron Cross?

well not so much cut out but put them as two couples Chicklette with Lauren & Raif with Tyler

Any additional comments?

i'm gutted i didn't enjoy this one so much i have listened to many BDSM books but i've never felt the doms or dommes to be as selfish as these two as long as they get they could'nt really care less what the subs want
