It was fine.
Normally I would say that it was nothing special but to be honest I am really disappointed with this book. I was bored out of my mind the first 25-30% and I had to FORCE myself to keep reading this. Later it got better, but it was still far from good.

The authors writing is good and the pace is quite fast, but it is a little repetitive (Ryan taking care of his house chores, Sam's meeting with hi

Loved this story. I am a fan of the first book in this series ,The Sergeant, which was Logan and Clay's story. I remembered the trouble Ryan caused for them in that story so, I was really interested how she was going to redeem him. Oh Boy did I love Ryan in this book. His pain felt so deep I didn't think he was going to crawl out of it. He was heartbroken. Then Sam comes along and offers to help him become the submissive he wants to be. They have their issues of course but in the end they fall i ...more

Standing from the outside looking in is always tough. When one is competent, loyal and wants to give so much, it is hard to understand why one is unwanted. Ryan Bennett is the kind of cop who exemplifies ethics and rigidity. He follows the rules and he does his best to serve. He is hard working and not afraid of taking more classes to give him an extra edge. Whilst he excels in his technical or "specialized" skills, his communication skills need a little bit of work. He is not exactly a team pla ...more

I just finished a great bowl of alphabet soup: M/M BDSM D/s. ;)

It was spicy and delicious, and, let me tell you, every one of those letters had a smile on my face as I read this one.

The Detective's Pleasure took me by surprise in the best possible way. And it wasn't just the hot-and-dirty kinky sex, the plot had some good depth to it and the characters were complex. A rare combination that I was thrilled to find within the pages of this book.

I haven't read anything by Christa Tomlinson before, but I can guarantee you that I'll be reading plenty from now on. This is also the most risqué M/M erotica/BDSM story I've read so far, and while I'm still new to this level of naughty storytelling, I thought it was quite well done and it certainly left me intrigued for more.

Ryan is one heck of a fiery sub, the "brat" label fits him perfectly. But there's history behind his attitude, most of which we don't find out about until the second half o

I was given this book for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.

I did not read the first book in this series. However, despite those characters playing a fairly significant role in this story, I never felt lost.

This story is about Sam and Ryan. Both work for the police department, but Sam is a Detective and Ryan wants to be part of SWAT.

Despite his best efforts in book 1, Ryan found himself wi

The detective Pleasure had a number of elements that should have made it a great read: BDSM (which I love), an alpha-male setting (cops and a SWAT team), and a stubborn sub. Yet I found it hard to get into this book, and I never connected with it.

The primary reason was that I never warmed up to Ryan—and that’s putting it mildly. From the very first page, he came across as an arrogant, stuck-up, OCD type who sported an unhealthy obsession with his previous Dom. While we learn more about the reas

As I read this book, I found myself hesitant to step away and leave both of these MC's. Ryan has such a sweet heart that yearns so desperately to be loved and owned by a DOM that I fell in love with him right away. His tough exterior and social awkwardness makes him unlikable to those around him but it's just the mask he wears to keep his hurt inside. Sam sees this and embraces a chance to break away that exterior to get to his soft center. But Sam is unprepared for how to handle it once he has ...more

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This was exactly the kind of story I have been looking for. A BDSM story of a Dom helping a sub overcome his issues and finding his submissive self. The connection between Sam and Ryan was perfect. I loved how Sam wouldn't let things go with Ryan. He asserted his dominance when Ryan needed it, even when he was being a pain in the ass. The way he took care of him and helped him was exactly what I was in the mood for.

Second, I received a copy for review.
NOW!!! Back to the WOW! This book was/is? FANTASTIC. I am in noway new to the world of BDSM, and Ms. Tomlinson has obviously done her homework. I have read MANY books by authors who have had absolutely no clue in how to portray 'the scene' accurately. Ryan is very believable as the angry sub who feels that no one wants him. Sam is also very believable as the Dom without a Sub because of one bad experience. Both men are in desperate need of a little TLC, a

Great follow up in this Dom/sub series

I actually liked this one better than the first one and I think Tomlinson dud a superb job to redeem Ryan from the arrogant arse of book one.

Sam was absolutely perfect for him and, while this book did have a side plot, it didn't take away from the main relationship narrative.

I also felt there was less drama or angsting in this one. Ryan's behaviour made perfect sense once his back story was given and I loved how Sam used his Dom's role to draw out all the pa

Having adored the first book in the series, I was fervently hoping that two peripheral characters from The Sergeant, Ryan and Sam, were going to be paired up, and I was most definitely not disappointed! Ryan is a Houston cop working his tail off to learn how SWAT works and become part of the team. He’s also a very bratty submissive in need of a firm hand. Sam is a detective working in the same precinct who is also just precisely the kind of dom that can help Ryan embrace his needs.

This was a pretty good read. I didn't really remember the details of the characters from the first book so it was basically a blank slate for me character wise. I really enjoyed the character growth from Ryan. I liked their interplay and how Sam got Ryan to let his guard down and be open. Sam has some of his own, but I would've liked more. But I feel like he got let off the hook in all the focus on Ryan. R

This is book 2 of the series and I gotta read book 1.

Book 2 is about Ryan Bennett who is training to be a SWAT member, but he's having problems with the rest of his team. I guess in book 1, he was in a short relationship with one of the main characters, the captain, and the team isn't too welcoming cause the captain's current lov

I loved the first book in this series, if you haven’t read it, you should. It will give you some back story on Ryan. I hated Ryan in the first book, wasn’t sure I was going to like him in this book either but I wanted to see if he could get his happy ending. We briefly met Sam as well in the first book.

This book was much more enjoyable then book 1 and I look forward to reading more from this author. In this book we meet Sam and Ryan and this book just seem to jump up and say you must continue to read. I didn’t care much for Ryan in the first book but it was clear right from the beginning where the author was going. Yes it was not perfect. There were scenes that I didn’t like but in the end I came to love and respect Ryan. Most of all there was love and respect not just HOT sex. I will definite ...more

I was surprised it was so good 👍

I you can't help but feel sorry for Ryan and he upset with him at the same time. He has demons that keep him from forming relationships but he just wants to belong. Sam is patient and firm and willing to help Ryan overcome his fears. I love Ryan and his flaws. This is the first time I've read a book with the dom that was so understanding and a sub that so forceful. I look forward to the next book.

Ok, so we all hated Ryan in book 1 but put him in the hands of Detective Sam Roberts and see what happens. Sam breaks him down and builds him back up, beautifully. So, I was a little surprised that Sam got the generic, run of the mill, thing in a box so wrong (cos no spoilers) but he redeems himself, as does Ryan . Highly anticipated sequel turns into a really great read.

2,5 stars. I don't know why but I didn't really connect with either the characters or the story. To be honest I found the story itself quite boring. It took way to long for the plot (police-wise) to go anywhere.
And yes, I got it at the second time! I don't need to be told how one line splits into two lines with almost the exact wording at every one of their operations.

Detective's Pleasure was a fantastic M/M BDSM romance.

Ryan Bennett has been on the Houston Police Dept. force for quite sometime but strives to make the SWAT team. He yearns to be apart of the SWAT "family" but there is a little glitch with this scenario... his ex-Dom, Logan Pierce, is the leader of SWAT and his new current sub, Foster, is on the same team. To be apart of the "family" he would have to put his personal opinions aside and move forw

First off, this was a bit of a hard read for me because of how close to home some of the protagonists' emotions felt. Both Ryan and Sam are real persons with real lifes and feelings, histories and troubles, and sometimes realism hurts even when it's not your own life that's on the line.
I know just how Ryan feels. There is nothing romantic or sensual about being replaced with another person and the jealousy that accompanies such a thing. I could almost taste the bitterness of that feeling on my
4.5 Stars. This is the sequel to The Sergeant, where we first met Ryan and I know I didn’t like him very much. He’s still kind of a jerk through much of this story but I liked seeing Sam uncover the motivations driving him to act that way. Just like the determination Ryan has for getting onto a SWAT team, he has a very hard time with changing his focus or failing at anything. His stubbornness and pride were carried almost to the point of ridiculousness and for a while, it was hard to see why Sam ...more
