All Adam Kern was looking for when his best friend dragged him to the club Harte was some good dancing and a little flirting to distract him from his troubles. He never anticipated meeting the club owner, Jesse Harte, and having a whole new world of experiences laid open before him. On an impulse, Adam follows Jesse to the upper, kinkier floors of the club where an informa ...more

Jenn (The Book Refuge)
This was a fun novella in a series about a BDSM club. This one is the second and though I haven't read the first one yet, I can see how fun it is. They are all MM couples and this one is about the owner Jesse Harte and a man named Adam, who comes to the club one night with his roommate.

Adam isn't interested in being a submissive, but he can't fight his attraction to Jesse. Adam and Jesse enter into a weekly meet-up relationship. They start to catch feelings, and Adam worries that he can't offer

3.5 stars After reading part one which was excellently written and very enjoyable I was happy to start part two.

There were parts I appreciated and parts where I found it less.

Adam is in a club on the dance floor and sees a beautiful man, Adam is drawn to him. When the man invites him to some other floors with other actions like BDSM, Adam follows. He is unfamiliar with it all and doesn’t understand what he’s looking at.
The man asks if he’s up for fun and Adam gets the time of his life.

After that

Thanks to Netgalley for a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

This is the second in this series and stands alone, but previous characters make an appearance. I liked that Dillon and Michael (from the first story) popped up again. It was fun to see the continuation of their relationship.

Jesse and Adam were interesting characters. Jesse, the owner of the club, and Adam who has some past issues that keep him from labeling himself as submissive. The length of the story only afforded
I'm enjoying the world Jacqueline Grey is building in the Suit of Harte's series. There's a nice variety of characters, kinks, and relationships.

Jacqueline Grey has a lovely way of writing, very appealing, and I'm looking forward to the final book in this series.

Adam's friend Ash drags him to Harte a BDSM/kink club, with three floors - one dedicated to dancing; there's bound to be some fun had. Adam is hesitant as he doesn't believe he identifies with anytypes of BDSM/kink but he complies with his friend's wishes. While there he meets the mysterious Jesse, they hit it off and then hook-up. What was supposed to be a one-time thing turns into a weekly meet-up and Adam beginning to want more then no-strings attached. Can Adam turn what he has with Jesse in ...more
Sheena ☆ Oh, the Sheenanigans!

Well that escalated quickly!

It was a straight to the point BDSM kinkfest (eh but not really) with no tricks or gimmicks. Sure there was a lack of a storyline, oddly enough real kink from the MCs, depth, character development, and real romance but we're not here for that now are we?

The non-descriptive sex scenes and what seems to be the lack of kinkiness from the characters were the real downfalls to this read. I generally prefer reading all nitty gritty details on what's happe

3.75 Stars!

Adam went to the club with his friend to have a little fun, dancing and flirting. Being impulsive with the hottest guy he's ever seen; however, leads him down a path he never anticipated. Club owner Jesse is enthralled with Adam and once he has Adam that night, he looks forward to seeing him again.

I struggled with how I felt about this story. The way that the story is structured, I felt like I was missing a lot about both Jesse and Adam. I really didn't get a good understanding of
Original review:

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Erotica: It is no secret that I hated the first book. What the author called kinky, I thought it was actually demeaning for Michael, so I wasn’t really looking forward to this second story. Another repeat of that awfulness would have buried this saga and pretty likely the rest of this author’s book into the “never touch” place of my shelves.

This book was provided to me by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was a fun, quick and easy read! I finished it in one morning. I've been on such a romance binge this summer and I love it. I wanted to read something different than just your average contemporary romance, I couldn't find any paranormal romance that struck my fancy, but this book was about BDSM so I requested it on Netgalley.

Writing style: It's nothing special, but I thought it was nice. The way it was written made it

I really liked this story - and the series as a whole. I adored the first story of Michael and Dillon. Jesse was a very interesting side character in that story. I was excited to see him find his person. Jesse is a business man. He owns a club (with a dance side and a BDSM side) and a gym - among other things I'm sure. He is clearly a Dom - but that isn't all he is. Adam is a college age man whose parents kicked him out when he came out as being gay. He meets Jesse at his club and is intrigued b ...more

I really enjoyed the first book in this series. Nothing much has changed with book 2. I still enjoyed my time in this journey. I wasn’t invested in the characters as much.

One thing I really enjoyed was the discovery portion. Adam is confronted with a side of him he never imagined when his BFF brings him to Harte club, and he runs into club owner Jesse. I love seeing self discovery. The back and forth between wanting and trying to come to terms with that want and the shame that society places on

Merci à NetGalley de m’avoir permit d’acquérir ce roman en échange d’un avis honnête.

J’ai demandé ce livre car le thème de la découverte du monde BDSM est plutôt intéressant et je me suis donc lancée là dedans. Ce livre est un peu court, mais l’histoire n’est pas non plus rushée. La relation qui s’installe ne fait pas fausse, au contraire, pour une fois, c’est plutôt rapide mais bien balancé et écrit. L’équilibre est présent, on a Jesse qui est un dom et Adam qui n’est pas du tout dans l’univers
Adam's life changes when he heads to Harte with his friend. He hooks up with a man who is sexy and intriguing.... Adam finds himself on the BDSM floor of the club ... and doesn't even get his name.

After a few encounters, Adam realizes that he's been hooking up with Jesse - the club owner.

There was a weird POV switch at one point in the book that really threw me but it may be something that will be caught in a later edit. It wasn't extensive enough to completely take me out of the story, it was j

3 1/2 rounded up to 4 stars
This is the second book in the Suit of Harte's series, but the third that I have read. These books are short and hot and deal with three different male-male couples who all, to some extent, indulge in BDSM.
In this book, Adam, one of our main characters has no interest in being submissive, or so he thinks until he has sex with Jesse (who is very much a dom). He then struggles to decide what he wants, as he certainly can't deny the attraction to Jesse.

3.5 Shooting Stars

Shoot the Moon, the second book in Jacqueline Grey's Suit of Harte's series was more captivating and spellbinding than the first book. The author's writing is enjoyable and flow-worthy, making the reader flip the pages to the next scene faster. My only hang up was the length and the intensity of the climax of the plot. I wanted more in-depth, more descriptions. Almost like we were just breaking the surface of the problem and not getting down to the real issue of Adam and Jesse'
Mar 28, 2020 rated it did not like it
Unconvincing story. Jesse was a Dom and owned a BDSM club. Adam was not subordinate nor kinky enough. Jesse would never be satisfied with Adam long term. Also, Adam was too insecure and jealous when Jesse scened (no sex) with others. Just not a good fit at all.

Shoot the Moon is a super quick novella set in the world of BDSM. It was a fun read. I didn't know it was a short story going in, so I definitely would have wanted more from the characters. For me, their relationship happened way to quickly. Overall, still a good read! ...more

I received this ecopy from the publisher and Netgalley for my honest review. It was a short read. I didn’t realize that this was part of a series. I would like to read the first book when I get the chance. The relationship between Adam and Jesse progressed very fast, but there was no real communication between them. I wanted more depth in the relationship to be more believable. That being said I was happy that Jesse and Adam found each other.

We continue to follow second of the three best friends from high school.

Since Harte is the owner of the club Harte's you would think that he needs to have a submission not only in the bedroom but in life. But, when you find love sometimes those things don't matter. Harte's goal is to figure out what he really wants and if he can convince his love that he is enough for him.

We met Jesse in the previous book as Dillon’s friend and owner of the dance/BDSM club. Adam isn’t much into the club scene, but things look up when he meets Jesse after his friend drags him out for a night on the town. Adam and Jesse share an instant connection/lust, though Adam has no idea who Jesse actually is.

While Adam is curious and is fairly easily convinced to check things out upstairs at the BDSM club, he makes it apparent very quickly that he is not into the scene, is adamant he is not
