4.5 Stars. Logan and Clay return again in this third volume of the series and they’re hotter than ever. Their D/s relationship has grown stronger and Logan is ready to ask Clay to move in but he’s still cautious of Clay’s need for independence. Then suddenly, the police captain decides to break up their successful SWAT team and bring in new people. Clay tries to adjust to the new guys but one in particular is homophobic and Clay doesn’t hold back on his opinion. The repercussions become more tha ...more

This book was provided free from the author in return for an honest review via the Goodreads Don't Buy My Love Program. I have not read the other books in this series and I don't believe that that impacted me being able to enjoy this book. Logan and Clay are in a committed relationship and things are going well for them professionally as well. Until their Captain, Hayden, decides that members need to be shifted around as too many on this team are in relationships. Clay's new team mate is a very ...more

Sigh.... Clay and Logan... I was hoping for more of these two...
All is perfect in Clay and Logan world. Things at work are great, things at home are great and the guys are better than ever... so of course, Hayden would have to mess with that. He wouldn't just leave well enough alone. Shaking up their team was one thing but putting Clay in harms was was another.
I was physically sick at what happened to him. Terrible. I didn't at all see that coming and was just... sick by the lengths these people

Series finishes up with a flourish

This is a nice rounding off for Logan and Clay as they have to fight to work out external pressures in their relationship.

The BDSM throughout this series has been well done in my limited, based on reading only, experience and I've enjoyed finding out more about the scene through these books.

Logan and Clay's relationship has been well developed and realistic and this book is no exception.

This was hott.. sexy and amazing.. I loved clay and logan.. I really need to read the others before this one but it was easy enough to follow without having read those.

Let me just start of with, if you haven't read any of the others in this series I suggest you start from the beginning.

Logan and Clay had it rough from the start but their life together couldn't be more perfect right now. Then the unthinkable happens at work and Clay isn't sure how to deal with it all. New guys on the team are cold hearted homophobes. Which just pissed me off. I wanted to jump into the book and kick them in the balls. The crap they put Clay through was beyond terrible. Which ha

It's great to see how the author has improved greatly from the first book. The story is more engaging in this installment, and the book has the perfect length with the right balance of sex.
I received An Officer’s Submission from the Goodreads Don’t Buy My Love program. It’s the third book in the ‘Cuffs, Collars and Love’ series. The story is told in third person through the MC’s eyes, Clay and Logan.

2.5 Stars

I truly love this seris. I have read every book so far and they just keep getting better and better. So when I seen there was going to be this book added to the series I was so excited. I could not wait to read it. I am so glad that I did because this book, much like the other book in this series, was beyond incredible.

These men and woman on the Houston Swat do not know what is coming their way in this book but it will change the course of all of their lives.

This is the fourth book in The Cuffs, Collars, and Love Series. An outstanding and dramatic book with great writing. The writing is much improved from the first story of Logan and Clay. It was much more balanced with the sex and the regular daily events. The daily events were more fleshed out with substance a great change. This book is best read after read books 1 and 2. It can be enjoyed without but a much deeper and understanding read is after the first 2 books. The plot was entertaining and i ...more

The boys are back and I couldn't be happier. The Sergeant (book 1) is one of my favorites and I absolutely love Tomlinson's writing. An Officer's Submission is book 4 in the Cuffs, Collars and Love series. You will need to have read The Sergeant (book 1) and A Christmas Story (book 3) prior to reading this to get the back story of Clay and Logan.

I am not one for spoilers but I can guarantee that Tomlinson will take you on a joyous and wonderful ride. The writing is superb and the book flows wit

Needs a trigger warning

Fair warning for semi-spoilers in vague terms. Let me start off by saying I loved this book. This story was much better presented then the first Ryan/Logan book. The plot was great and very well executed. A bit too well. I have read books by other authors who have depicted assult scenes before and have never had an issue with it. This one however had my hands shaking through half the novel and wondering if I was going to throw up. The scene hit me hard and unexpectedly. I

This book was provided free from the author in return for an honest review via the Goodreads Don't Buy My Love Program.

While I was pretty excited to get another Clay and Logan story, I wasn't too excited for how emotionally flat it ended up being.

The beginning of the book was a lot of telling back story, followed by the present story, layered on top of telling sex. Around the department “shake up”, I got a little more interested in the storyline, even felt bad for the characters going through s

Having loved all of the books in this series I was looking forward to reading An Officer's Submission and I wasn't disappointed. This book is beautifully written, fast-paced and full of intriguing characters. Logan and Clay had a tough road to follow to get to where they are now, happy and in a committed relationship. Their careers are going well and the SWAT team they are on is running smoothly. When their team is changed Clay has to put up with two new members who hate him and a new team leade ...more

I had not read "The Sergeant" before starting this book, but it did not influence my reading of An Officer's Submission. You may miss the typical initial romance of a relationship, but this story is all about the trials, the struggles a developing relationship has to face and master in order to grow into a steady deep connection between two strong-willed cops. Be aware that some readers may feel pretty uncomfortable with the trigger event faced by Clay, but I think situations like that do happen ...more

Loved it. Reading about Logan and Clay again was amazing, I missed that couple quite a bit, as well as the supporting characters. The whole series is great and everyone should read them. I like where the author went with the storyline, it was unexpected but she did a great job of writing it from a guy's point of view. The story flowed along nicely for me and I didn't want to put it down. Even though this has BDSM elements it's not over the top and felt just write for these particular MC's. The h ...more

I liked this one much better than The Sergeant, which is funny because I disliked both characters so intensely! I still can't call myself a fan of Clay, although I definitely had a lot of sympathy for the situation in which he found himself in this book. (Which I will not describe, because spoilers, and triggers.) I haven't been in the identical situation, but I've been in a similar enough situation that I could definitely relate to a lot of what he was feeling.

An Officer's Submission by Christa Tomlinson is the fourth part of the Cuffs, Collars and Love series. Possible to read as a stand alone but best enjoyed after reading the previous. Clay , who is Logan's submissive, are both police officers. we get to revisit characters we've met before,which I always enjoy. Personally, Clay and Logan's relationship seems to be strong and happy. Then their team gets restructured, separating the boys from each other. A very serious incident at work shakes Clay an ...more

First thing I have to say about this is how much Ms. Tomlinson’s writing has improved, while I loved Logan and Clay’s first book her writing gets better with every book in this series.

I was thinking I might have to purchase a new Kindle while reading this one, talk about frustrating characters and situations. lol! I mean first it was Hayden’s stunt that lead to the issue that Clay had to go through, then not only was I frustrated for Clay but at him a little bit too. I loved how Logan was there

It might be difficult for a strong man to admit he's submissive. Clay was fortunate - his Dom/sub relationship with Logan progressed naturally, though in everyday life he's a tough member of a badass SWAT team. But when they come out as a couple to their colleagues, it brings them both lots of problems. Their team is split now, but that's not the worst thing Clay will have to face. Logan promised he wouldn't let anyone hurt Clay, but this promise is hard to keep, and not only because of the dang ...more

I'm a huge fan of the Cuffs, Collars and Love series and was eager to read this new addition. At first I wondered how the author could add to the wonderful story of Logan and Clay, as they were fully explored in the first book. But this book is a wonderful read and an amazing extension of that story. Clay struggles with his role as Logan's submissive after an incident with new members of the reformed SWAT team. He feels he is less of a man and finds it difficult to connect between the part of hi ...more

Loved seeing Logan and Clay again in this wonderful story. Emotional and sensitive storyline that is spectacularly written and would not let me put this book down. So much happened to Clay and he tried to keep it all to himself until he had to let it out in order to save Logan from being suspended from the force. It's an emotional roller coaster but with their love and understanding always shining through. I don't want to give any spoilers, this is a story that is a MUST READ!!

On top of a scramble up of the team, Clay gets assaulted and it shatters his mind in a way that affects his D/s relationship with Logan. We see a real breach of trust for Clay and a level of insecurity that we didn't see in the last three. Although it's just the one incident, Logan and Clay become "more" in their BDSM relationship.

I gave this a 4, because it really was good. I liked the pacing, and the drama. Granted nothing in it was a super wow factor, it was simple and good. I like BDSM title
I recieved a free copy of this book from the author for an unbiased review.

I like Logan and Clay as a couple even if Clay´s constant need to proof his manhood and what a badass he is was a bit grating on my nerves. Logans reaction to Harmons "pranks" was a bit over the top for me. All in all it was a good book for me to read and I love the new plans the MC´s have in mind for their future and I loved the wedding. Hope there will be more of this series.

Clay and Logan are back again in An Officer's Submission. They seem to be stronger then ever. Clay is at peace with his choice to be Logan's submissive. Not only is he at peace, but he loves to serve his master. As a reader you can feel the devotion between both men. Logan's protective instincts are pushed to the limit in this story. I love how the author writes Logan. He is the perfect alpha hero. I look forward to the next installment. Is Hector's story next? I can only hope so. ...more

This was absolutely hot. Hot and spicy and tender. I love these guys. I’ve read the other books in the series, and this high standard has been maintained. The emotions you feel while reading are real and not forced! The plot is tight. Seeing these two together again warmed my heart. Good job, Ms. Tomlinson! Cheers! 4.5/5
