So this is awkward. Everyone loved this book but me. I hate it when that happens.

Lincoln, who's only 25, is wealthy and owns a successful BDSM club. He's the Dom of all Doms, yet he takes a guy who's never done any BDSM, who may not be gay, who isn't a sub, and does a scene with him in front of the whole club.

Lincoln goads Alexander into doing the scene, then sends Alexander's friends home and strips Alex naked. He pursues Alexander in a very predatory way.

Are you ready for some fun? A fun, funny, sexy book with quick wit and bone-crushing sexy times? Well, you have come to the right place. Touchdown is all that and more.

Alex lives his life for everyone but himself. Lincoln, the owner of the exclusive BDSM club the Den, sees his obedience a mile away. It not only excites the Dom in him, but saddens him too. As he gets to know Alex (Alexander, as only Lincoln calls him) he sees the emptiness in his eyes at not following his heart and having the cou

5⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ for this super fun and sexy book.

Thanks to the sexiest Dom...Ever, I felt the need to start humping on things again while reading. That's right, you know it's good when that humping feeling kicks in!!

I can't say that I love the whole BDSM "scene". I have read several books about it but sometimes they work and other times they don't. This was one of those times that it did. Lincoln was very careful with Alex and that's what I love to see.

Touchdown is a sexy,down and dirty, heart warming love story which will captivate your heart and never let go. I fell in love with this book right from the first page and it has got a permanent place in my re-reads list.

Alexander and Lincoln captivated me right from the start. I loved that they were so different yet so amazingly perfect for each other. Even though Alex is submissive he is sassy and will make you laugh and fall in love with him. What I liked is that Lincoln and Alexande
Re-read 9/5/18

This was way better than I expected. I'm normally not a big BDSM fan. The book has to be really good for me to enjoy it and to me, this one definitely was.

Alexander is the QB at his college and his life is basically one big lie. He is living his life, the way his parents want him to. Deep inside, Alex wants to be an artist, but he has to keep this a secret, because of his controlling asshole family (especially his grandfather). They expect him to be a QB and go to Harvard Law schoo
My safeword is NOPE!

I've got some really good friends here that loved this book. Sadly, it pushed all the wrong buttons for me. I really wanted to like the book, but it was not meant to be. Caution - dissenting opinion ahead.

There are a few things I look for in a BDSM themed novel. SSC is generally one of them. Touchdown skipped the important bits of SSC -- education, conversation, negotiation. SSC is more than just having a safeword.

Very early in the book, I realized that the story was likely

Alexander is a top student and a top athlete and a natural submissive - only he has not realized this fact about himself. One Friday night his best friend and fellow team mates in the football team invite him to go with them at the Den, the latest hot BDSM club in Tuscaloosa.

Lincoln is the owner of the Den and the top badass Dom of the club. One look at Alexander and Lincoln decides that he will be his next sub and boyfriend.

DNF at 25%. No rating, but it I was going to rate it, it would be LOW.

I think my blog partners and I got bum copies of this one because it seems like EVERYONE else loves this book, and it's either that or we're just taking crazy pills!

I thought this was... not good, and I'm not going to make myself read any more.

Yeah, I'll just be honest and say I picked this book mainly because of it's cover!!

And I was pleasantly surprised.



After Lincoln and Alex's first performance in the club, Alex wasn't able to get Lincoln out of his head. Lincoln made him feel for the first time. All he was used to was to perform as the Bryant grandson everyone expected him to be. Be the best QB, go to law school and then follow his family's footsteps. What about his dre
YAY!!!!! I have been looking forward to this book, and it surpassed my expectations! Seriously T.S. McKinney is hitting her stride.
I am not quite sure if this is a 4 or 5 star read, but I will leave it at 5 for now, since it was a wee bit more fleshed-out and well-written than Overtime.

So Alexander is this 'goody two-shoes' doing everything his family wants him to do. They want him to play football, he'll do it. They want him to study law at Harvard, he'll do it. They chose his school, he didn't

Now this was quite a nice surprise. Neither of us knew anything about this book and the blurb is really vague. This book was fun! And kinky. Lot of BDSM, but also lots of laughs.

Alex is trying to live up to everyone’s expectations. He is supposed to play college football, like his father and grandfather. And he is supposed to go to Harvard after he graduates to become a lawyer in the family firm.

But even though Alex tries to be like his family wants him to be,

Touchdown had a few OTT things:

• Like the first time Alexander went to the Club for example.

I don't think that scene would have ever happened in that kind of *ahem* establishment. A Dom randomly picking someone from the audience that clearly wasn't feeling comfortable to play.

• The insta-lust which quickly became insta-love by Lincoln.

• Alexander's family "60 minutes makeover"

That said, I couldn't for the life of me put this book down.
A very entertaining and hot story.

This was my first book by T.S. McKinney and it won't be my last!
She is the queen of the well-placed punchline!

Nipple clamps, football hotties, witty banter, and funny one-liners?? Sold!
Yes, you read that right. All of that wrapped up in one book!

I had no idea what to expect before I started reading (I don't read blurbs) and boy was I pleasantly surprised!
There was crazy chemistry between Alexander and Lincoln, flirting, laugh-out-loud moments, hot football players and sexy BDSM scenes!!

Oh my. This feels way too kinky for my comfort. I've dabbled onto some BDSM books before, but not an eager fan of such genre, especially not with the whole costume and medieval looking props. But I'm no stranger to fisting, spanking, hot wax or any other toys can you can take it up your ass. But putting something into ones penis is definitely something I never heard of, unless is a catheter. Oh well, l learn something new again.

4.5 star review by The Blogger Girls.

At first glance, this may seem like just another football GFY story. But, it doesn’t take long to realize that is not the case.

Alexander is miserable but has somewhat come to grips with the fact that everything he loves (and hides) will all end once he graduates college. He has shaped himself to fit into the mold his family demands, from the college he attends to football and law school, ending with working at the family law firm. He pretty much goes with the

4.5 stars - loved this book ....Alexander & Lincoln were smokin ! I really enjoyed their chemistry and the build in romance and partnership although finding out Lincoln was only 25 made it a bit harder to see him as a seasoned Master Dom. This was an unexpected story which took a few surprise turns. It was great to see the constant backing of Tank and eventually Alexander's parents. Very enjoyable heat

This one was a short, hot read with enough plot to keep me satisfied.

I liked Alex's character, how behind the perfect facade he hid doubts and worries about his future, but I think I liked Lincoln more. I have a thing for characters whose life just gets turned upside down when they meet a person they want not just for today or tomorrow, but forever.

Anyway, this book was kinky rather than sweet. Some scenes were outright hot and bot
I feel tricked, duped. I went into this book thinking it was about a college QB who turns GFY for a dominant man..they play a little and he's a good submissive in the bedroom. Boy was I was much more.

I don't usually read full on BDSM. I can get behind some spanking (no pun intended) and some tying up. And I love a dominant man in the bedroom. So, when I came up on the first club scene I proceeded cautiously. I'm glad I did. There was so much more here then just hot sex and flogging.
dnf @36%

This is a poorly edited, completely unrealistic mess. No character development at all. A total alpha-hole dom. The word "pussy" used 357x cuz apparently calling each other that is manly & what athletes do.

I'm sacking this book and the quarterback it's about. Apparently I'm too much of a pussy to force myself to finish this.

Let's be honest here : I couldn't resist the cover. There, it's said.
An enjoyable read if you're not looking for a BDSM story, because I don't think this is what it's about. I didn't put any real belief in this book, so it was good.
It's a story about a young guy who tries to please his family above his own needs and can't hide anymore what he wants once he meets THE guy that does it for him.
I quite like the banter between friends, the cheesy way all comes well in the end : I needed that when I

4.5* really and I'm only knocking the half off because I wanted more!

As I've said elsewhere in my reviews, BDSM isn't usually my thing because I don't know enough about it to understand why someone would want the pain alongside the sex.
However, with Touchdown I think I've now got more of an insight into the world of the Dom/sub and the sexual tensions in this book were off the Richter Scale.

I could completely understand why giving up control to Lincoln worked for Alex, it took him out of his he

Oh man, I loved this book. I felt the same way about Overtime when that was released earlier this year so I was excited for another T.S. McKinney book, and I was not disappointed!

Alexander and Lincoln were combustible from the start. I adored the way Lincoln fell for Alexander. Adored it. I was cheering for them the whole time. By the end, I was so proud of Alex and how far he had come it felt like I knew him personally. My heart broke for them, both individually and together, a few times throug

4.5 TIE ME UP STARS. God how I loved this book. This is the first book I've read by this author but I am a total fan.

Alex is a star quarterback, has plenty of money, great friends...his life sounds perfect right? And Alex is great at making those around him believe that is true. He buries who he truly is so deep that you could never tell just how miserable he is and how he dreads what the rest of his life has in store for him.
