Living with and being the playtoy of three men is more rewarding than Jason could have imagined. Bishop, Knight and Rook each have their own way of loving on him. In Bishop he finds a workout partner, friendship, and good solid lovemaking. He isn’t sure what to make of Knight, but the man is a brilli ...more
Otherwise, why would I keep on reading this series, even though I absolutely detested the first book.
Or, we could call me an optimist, who keeps on trying and trying to find the bright points in books.
That was my face after having read this book. Actually, this was my face 20 pages in the book, if not less.
I liked the beginning. I even like Jason & Bishop. I tend to like Rook & Knight, too. As characters, not as a relati ...more
Are you really considered a play toy when you’re living happily ever after? At least, that’s the way I see things for Jason. Sure, three different lovers play him with, but it’s not like he isn’t enjoying every minute.
The thing I liked most about this installment was that there was a little more of a storyline to it. Jason loved all three of them, but it was Rook he’s falling IN love with. After a game of truth or dare, Jason starts to question if “being a play toy” is really ...more

Onto book 3 next!
I liked Rook and Jason together, as they were super-sweet. Jason is falling in love with Rook, and that part was believable, but his feelings towards Knight and Bishop remained a mystery to me.
The rest is a big smut fest, where it became hard (har, har) to keep all the hands, cocks, and balls straight (another lame pun, sorry). I was really missing an emotional connection to the characters, aside fr ...more

Book 2 in the series picks up immediately where book 1 finished. Jason is becoming far more comfortable in his role but his role is losing definition. He was basically hired to play with three very sexual men but there are feelings becoming involved especially where Rook is involved.
There is a slightly different feel to this book. Although the four men still play together there is a definite divide into two couples there as well. Knight is as needy as ever but jus ...more
This story is about 4 guys in a polyamorous relationship. The next installment of the Chess series is all about naked guys having fun and loving each other. This story moves from one dirty scene to the next with very little story. For me there are two things of note. Firstly the fisting scene which isn't really my thing but it is well done. Secondly, a scene with piercing which had me squirming in my seat. It was good to rea ...more
I am hooked on this series! I love these four men, they each bring something different to the relationship and man oh man is there a lot of hot sex. My favorite character Rook just makes me smile and I wish I had a Rookie of my own! In this book the men get closer but not as close as Jason and Rook, Jason realizes he loves Rook and doesn’t know what he is going to do with that information.
Characters: well writt ...more
Middle Game is a continuation of the story between Bishop, Knight, Rook and Jason. It's moved on from the beginning. Jason has moved into the house, he's agreed to be the boys play thing. Jason is a little unnerved by his level of comfort. He's never been with a man, let alone three, but each of them offer something different to Jason. What is the most unexpected is his feelings for Rook. Can he continue staying there kn ...more
This is the second in the series - and you do need to read them in order to get the full storyline.
I loved the first book, and whole premise behind the story. Inevitably there are questions in newbie Jason's mind - an heart - which come out in this part of the story. We also get much more of Knight's modus operandi and how Bishop cares for his needs. The title is well justified, as the plot consolidates what happens as ...more
The piercing scene in this book really pissed me off. Knight said no, Bish said yes, you really want it.
FFS. He said no, why do you think you know what he wants???
Then straight after he has sex. Really?
Ok, I know I complain about wanting more sex, but this series is over the top. I actually want some plot. Like how did Bishop and Knight get together, how did Rook join them? Chess piece names; how did that happen?
Mine, mine, mine is just not enough. Well, enough of this series for me.
Warning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS.
- We get a more solid picture in this installment of how each of the men complements each of the others, how each man brings something different to the relationship.
- I like that Jason is forming different sorts of attachments to the three other men, and that he’s growing the attachments at different speeds. He’s happily falling head over heels for Rook, becoming friends ...more
Jason is finally starting to settle into his new life with Bishop, Knight, and Rook; he’s also begun admitting to himself that he likes men and that he really likes Rook. He’s still being pushed to his limits with new experiences, both in and outside of the bedroom, and after each new encounter with the men he’s quickly becoming attached to, he comes out of his shell a little more. A chance conversation with Rook has unintended consequences, however, and Jas ...more
Six of the books focus on the same 4 MC's. But, the last book in the series, Pre-Game, is actually the story of how the original 3 (Rook, Knight and Bishop) met and can be read first; however, the rest all need to be read in order.
Note that #6 "The Piercer's Game" is almost a ...more
Can Jason be with three amazing men and not lose his heart in the process?
Living with and being the play toy of three men is more rewarding than Jason could have imagined. Bishop, Knight and Rook each have their own way of loving on him. In Bishop he finds a work-out partner, friendship, and good solid lovemaking. He isn’t sure what to make of Knight, but the man is a brilliant artist and there are worse things than being Knight’s subject for his latest series of paintings. And the kinky things...more
What we saw in the last book that has carried over into this one is Jason and Rook are developing a deeper relationship then Jason and the the other two, and this is starting to put a strain on things. Knight is still doing things with out thinking and Bishop is still havi ...more
