Leather and Lace

The story was intense with just the right amount of suspense to keep me guessing. The beginning was a little slow for me, but once it picked up, I was hooked. This is definitely a story I will strongly recommend, and an author I will be following in the future.

Suspense romance

I recommend this book to readers who enjoy Navy SEAL mysteries, sex club stories, and/or BDSM DOM/sub erotica.

No cliffhanger. Book 1 of series.

I liked the characters and storyline. I plan on reading the next book in the series.

The narration was not my favourite, but okay.

Disappointing

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Not sure.

Has Leather & Lace turned you off from other books in this genre?

I think I’ll try the next in the series because of different narrator. Hoping there will be a bit more to the story. This plot line just sounded too much like other books I’ve read. This one wasn’t special in any way, IMHO, compared to other books I’ve read. Maybe it’s just me. It was ok. I have nothing negative to say about it, just not as intriguing as books by other authors I’ve read.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator’s attempt at a male voice was dreadful. Very distracting, but I did manage to finish the book. Won’t listen again.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Leather & Lace?

Not sure. There was no one “scene” that I would single out.

Any additional comments?

I just don’t care for the way there was mystery building up all through the story only to be concluded abruptly at the end in such an almost unbelievably easy way. Did like the epilogue although it was very brief.

Loved the story, not the narration

Loved this story! I loved it so much that I bought the rest of the series and did a binge read. You know, where you read one book after another until they entire series is finished. I loved the detail and the characters. I felt as though I was in the book and was hooked. The narration however, meh. There were some points that her voice just plain irritated me. BUT, the story was so good that I wanted to finish it. I didn't want to quit, I wanted to listen and tried to find reasons to get in my car so that the story would go on.

BDSM Murder Mystery??? Yes, please!!!

The narrator was great as Kristin, though the bass she used for men was a bit forced.

Overall, I highly recommend this book!!!

The plot was a great driving force, though what really made this book sing were the steamy scenes between Kristin and Devon!!!

Unlike some other popular BDSM Romances out there, this book emphasized the motto of Safe/Sane/Consentual, which was truly refreshing!!!

I can't wait to listen to Book 2!!!

Great start to a hot series

This was a fun read and listen. If you like books by Lexi Blake, Maya Banks and Cherise Sinclair, then you will enjoy the Trident Security series.

Good read

I read the book and then listened to the audio. I enjoyed the read, but I wasn't quite as taken with the audio. Is it worth the time? Yes, if it's on sale.

My Two Pennies

We're introduced to Kristen, a writer that is looking for additional research for her next book involving the BDSM scene. While talking with one of the Dom's in charge she meets Devon, a former Navy Seal and Dom himself being a part of the scene for over s decade. They planned on having one weekend full of lust and enjoyment but things turn into so much more. This book is sexy, funny and captures your attention the entire time. It was great seeing how creative Devon was with nicknames and even got Kristen on board in time. I was pleasantly surprised to find out a little into the story that there's a but of suspense and mystery added into the mix. Great read kept me guessing and loved every second of it. This is my unbiased and voluntary review.

Hot and Fast paced

Would you consider the audio edition of Leather & Lace to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version

What other book might you compare Leather & Lace to and why?

There are a lot of Security books out there but the incorporation of BDSM club makes this very unique.

Which scene was your favorite?

The kitchen countertop...

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

WIth the heat that is in this book, it would be hard to make into a film.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed the pacing of this book. I also enjoyed the underlying plot that kept the book moving just as much as I enjoyed the love story.
