This is it. You understand? This isn’t sex. This is the rest of my life. I won’t ever leave you. I won’t ever touch another woman.”
He was never serious about those women, but one day Bo O’Malley was going to fall in love, and it wouldn’t be with her. He considered her a friend, a sister. They had an odd relationship, and there was no way it would last. When he found a serious girlfriend, she would be out.
Sometimes he was sure he was two utterly different people. There was the dumbass addict who didn’t care about anything beyond his next high, and the caveman who thought everything belonged to him. Those two sides of him fought constantly for control. He needed to make her understand.
I’ve actually started reading this book awhile back. But I have stopped and forgotten that I was reading it. It was because I was in a ménage bdsm mood and so much of that stuff in so many weeks is quite overwhelming, and shall I say, kind of tiring.
But here I am, trying again to read this and getting a fresh start although I may have to reread the first 2-3 chapters again but well, Trev is such an asshole and I love assholes, so you see.
Anyway, Bethany ‘Mouse’ Hobbes is a natural submissive. She’s a pleaser. In love with her best friend Bo. Someone who’s been bullied all her life, not standing for herself thus the name Mouse.
Trev McNamara is a world class asshole. He’s a quarterback and been at the top of his game and yet he threw it all away with booze. Handling pressure is not his strong suit.
Bo O’Mailey is quite the manwhore kind of guy. He was a guy you can push around because all he wants was to fit in. But even if he’s that guy, he was stand up for Mouse until the restaurant thing where he became a grade A asshole, up in Trev’s alley.
What I love in this book is that how Trev stood up for Beth/Bethany. Being angry at everyone who calls her Mouse because of the demeaning of it. I also like how he pushed Beth to be the person she became here.
Well, with Bo. I don’t really know about him. He’s like Beth in some aspects, always wanting to please and yet he is not a submissive. He may enjoy dominating in bed but he’s not really a dominant. And well, I think he’s not even a switch. But whatever he is, he completes both Beth and Trev in a way that if it’s only the two, the relationship would be missing something and it wouldn’t be perfect.
Bethany became Trev’s addiction. I love her character development in this story. She learned to be a bitch, well in a good way. That at least is good enough for me.
They didn’t really have more scenes, just a little training in the bedroom and the cabin. I guess it was something fresh that them visiting Julian’s club wasn’t portrayed here. But with all that I’ve loved in this book, I wish for something that I think is missing. Well, Trev and Bo are not bi, but the way they interact, I wish for them to kiss and make love. I don’t know, I have a feeling that they will someday get into the act and then their relationship will be a true threesome.
