This doesn’t feel like book 3 in the series, this honestly just feels like a continuation of the story of Noah and Tobias. I have been reading one book after the other because of this feeling. I honestly don’t see them as separate books, but just chapter after chapter of their journey. This is not a complaint at all, but just the opposite. I love this series!!

In this book their relationship is definitely on solid ground, they have grown together and evolved and now are solidly in love. Tobias i

4 stars - my favorite book in the series so far!

In Discipline I finally got a better understanding for Noah and Tobias. For the first time, I really understood their relationship and their dynamics. It was a lot of fun to see how they manage to get closer to each other by overcoming fear and grief. Compared to the first two parts of the series, the focus wasn't only on their sexual relationship, but also on other aspects of their lifes.

In the first part of the book, we get a lot of Phan. I lov
I'm Really enjoying this series. Tobias and Noah are really good together and their relationship has strengthened considerably. More hot sex and lots of delish kink ( especially when they travel to Paris) but I didn't think that there was as quite much focus on the BDSM elements in this one, its there but just not as prominent, possibly because they are in love and their feelings have altered the dynamics between them slightly. Not that that was a problem for me , it just changed the feel

5 I-want-me-a-Tobias STARS!

So we have Tobias and Noah exploring their relationship even more deeply, not only as Dom and sub but as partners too. We get to see Noah supporting Tobias during hard times, and Tobias returning the favor by leading Noah through intense sexual games, breaking barriers and helping him face his biggest fear, yes, the cage.

Caroline Brand

Tobias and Noah continue on exploring their relationship but sometimes real life takes over and things don’t always run smoothly.

The one lady that has been there for Tobias since before his parents died sadly passes away and he needs Noah’s support more than ever. Noah proves that he can be everything his master needs and more. This book focuses a lot of Noah’s strength as it is him again sat holding Phan when he breaks down due to the sudden lack of structure in

I waited too long to review this one as well so I'll just mention what I liked (or didn't).

Likes/Highlights: Paris, Noah topping Tobias, Noah stopping Tobias for speeding

Sad: Mrs. Miller's passing and the fallout from that

Dislikes: Even though Noah and Tobias are working towards their togetherness, Phan is manipulating his way in and Tobias' guilt/care is allowing it. See how the next two books pan out.

Seemed to start slow but really heated up just before Paris when(view spoiler). Sorry to see one character leave the scene so to speak but it was required for Noah and Tobias to move on and eventually live together. Loved all the Paris scenes, definitely lots of action to make it live up to it's name as the city of love.
Reading the shorts for the remaining two books I'm not sure they will appeal so much but one never knows. Lead on McDuff...

Much as I enjoy these characters, and as I think the sex between them is hot, I just need more plot in my books. This book felt like it was 80% sex, with the other 20% being the depressing death of a beloved minor character. It was nice to spend more time with Tobias and Noah, but honestly, I had to read this book in little 10-page chunks (one sex scene each).

Oh I love these guys! Tobias is the best Dom ever - there are so many layers to his character and he is so incredibly sweet (when he is being sweet) and such an intimidating man when he wants to be. He's wonderful.

Noah is perfect - I love it when he takes control, and to watch his character develop over the course of the series, it is a wonderful journey.

The plot is wonderfully complex and the hot scenes are peppered in between the dialog so the story rolls along at a perfect pace. Can't wait to

Dr. Tobias Vincent and his sub Noah was pushing their relationship further and took vacation in Paris. They prolonged their contract and they are deciding to move in. That was the main plot accompanied with mushy sex scenes with hint of BDSM. Paris is just a background for depraved sexclubs and bunch of Frenchmen. That was a good part. The bad part was very long description of Phantom and his damn problems, which were deep but author did not go deeper in the description of them. There was very i ...more

I love this series! Tobias and Noah stay with me long after I have finished reading their stories. In this book, their relationship continues to grow, their love for each other becomes more intense and they sign a new contract. There are some serious issues in the book that Noah and Tobias face together. And their trip to Paris is awesome. The BDSM club that they go to is HOT! I love the new characters that are introduced and I would love to read more about them. Noah and Tobias also mentioned a ...more

I had trouble realising how many pages this book has. I opened up my Kindle cover, turned it on and started reading. Before I knew it I had read the whole book and wanted more.
I am totally enjoying this series, but I have kept them at four stars as I do wish for a little more of Tobias being Noah's Dom instead of his sappy lover. Not that I don't adore the love story of these two characters, but I would like to see a little more of Tobias' dominate nature.

I liked it, not as much as the second one but still engaging. The authors do a great job at keeping the reader engrossed and emotionally tied to the lead characers which is refreshing. I am already tired of Phan and his needs but I see that he is a big part of the next two books so I'll have to get over that I suppose.
Not bad, but not my favorite so far. More bonding and in depth development of Tobias and Noah as a couple, lovers outside of their scene.

I liked their time in Paris, and toward the end, certain events assisted in giving Noah more validation, but poor Phan...really curious how things will find some kind of resolution.

On to the next one, as this one fell a bit short for me.

This review applies to the entire series. My introduction to this book began innocently enough. Rebecca AWK recently reviewed a BSDM book that she found disappointing. In response, I left a comment on her review to check out a few BSDM books that I've read and liked in the past (For Real, Duck!, and Rough Canvas. I should have also added Axel's Pup). She wrote back and suggested I check out this book and if possible, read the entire series in a row. So I did!

I really enjoyed this book. At the end of the second book I wondered how things could evolve more in their relationship to warrant another book because the end was pretty darn good but the authors managed to do it. I especially enjoyed the second half of the book in Paris. It was a fun read and also a different look into the bdsm scene.

There was nothing stopping me now, I was so connected with each character that I had to find out how Tobias and Noah’s vacation to France would go. Aside from the fact that their initial contract was at an ending and negotiations would start again, Tobias wanted them to move in together and have a more long-term contract that would further reflect their commitment to each other. There are many things that can test the strength in a relationship and a personal loss rippled through the chapters le ...more

This is the third book in the Deviations series, and picks up right after the ending of the last book. This book is split between Phantom’s emotional issues, Tobias’ emotional issues, a trip to Paris, and a breakthrough for Noah. I think t
I find this third book of Deviations as good as the previous ones. I like how the two authors write the story, very pleasant, flowing and easy to read.
The couple Tobias-Noah is one of my favorite. But I'm a little more reticent over Phan, not that I can’t find him kind, but it annoys me a little. I know he’ll have a role bigger and bigger in their relationship, in the next two books (I read the summary), however I hope I’ll like them.

Warning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS.

Rating: 9/10

- Hot sex scenes, as usual, but in more unusual settings in this volume.
- Continued development of not just the D/s relationship but also the characters’ emotional connection.
- A lot of progress regarding some of Noah’s trust issues and fear of physical restraint.
- Tobias and Noah finally have an argument! (I was starting to think they were a little too perfect.) And

I loved books 1 to 3 in this series. Out of all the BDSM novels I've read, this series had the most strict D/S relationship. Tobias takes on Noah as a sub after seeing Noah needs something, he's adrift and needs grounding and issues dealt with. Tobias is a sucker for a sub in need and something about Noah entrances him. Noah is not a sweet yes sir sub all the time. During the day he's a police officer and he has to work to weigh up his responsible professional life against his need to give up co ...more

Now that Tobias has collared Noah, their relationship is rather established. Tobias finally accepts that Noah is - and wants to be - more than just his sub, but also his life partner. Noah finally trusts Tobias enough to truely believe in his love, helping him to overcome his misgivings about Phan. Tobias, on the other hand, struggles with the notion that he may love Noah but can't stop to feel responsible for Phan. Fortunately, Tobias's friend Bradford is ready to take Phan on as his temporary ...more

This book was my favorite so far, although it had me in tears during most of it. Noah and Tobias' relationships both personal and D/s are blooming wonderfully and although they still have minor issues to work out, I'm thrilled for both of them.

This book dealt a lot with Phan and his issues and I really really enjoyed getting to know more about him although I find his back story heartbreaking and far too intense for anyone to have to deal with.

This is a great continuation of the series and story of Noah and tobias. Lots of lovely and scorching hot lover scenes and some panty drenching fantasy scenes (seriously!!!) and of course amazing and intense d/s scenes.

So the main thing that put me off continuing the series to begin with was all the mixed feelings towards phan coming into the relationship. This doesn't happen in this book and I'm still hesitant to read Bondage because I'm still not sure how I feel about it.

Of the first three I thought this novel was probably the weakest, which is nothing overly resentful against it. It's hard to maintain that goodfeel buzz you get about a series 3 novels in, the characters at this point are happy together and it's external things which affect them this time around. Phantom is struggling with his needs and he and Noah are gradually becoming closer.

I've heard that there's going to be a separate novel with Phantom and Bradly, I would love dearly to read that because

This one was good, and it was delightful to get to see the relationship between Tobias and Noah deepen even further, but for some reason this one didn't hold my attention like the first two. I ended up skimming a lot of the sex scenes (and there were a LOT).

Phantom just breaks my heart. He's an amazingly well crafted character. It was fun watching him and Noah become closer, but it killed me to see how much Phan needs someone and how much Tobias wants to help but can't, and how much noa
