So we pick up where book two finished. The relationship between Thomas and Sam is still evolving, both as a couple and as a Dom/Sub. Even though we're on the third book, it's still a fairly new relationship and their constantly learning things about themselves and each other. I love how much time they spend on each other, wanting to care for the other man and their love really shines through.
There's definitely a lot of resolution for the couple. Stresses for them both have included James' murde

Thomas and his boy, Sam are on their way to healing in the conclusion to their story. The mystery of James' murder still weighs on them, but they are still going strong. They learn a lot about each other and themselves, they explore their D/s relationship and their intimate relationship. I love how tender they were with each other, and how very passionate they are at the same time. This has truly been a great relationship to read. It's grown and developed until finally the healing and love they

Sam and Thomas have gone through so much, both separately and together, since James was murdered. The killer has been terrorizing them, but they have still managed to move forward in their relationship. In this final installment, they travel to Texas so that Thomas can meet Sam's parents and the men can enjoy a wonderful vacation together.
Of course, these men are complicated, so things are not always easy for them. I love every minute of watching them work things out, with both their D/s dynami

I have been waiting for the conclusion to the mystery of who killed James and attacked Sam and that was very satisfyingly resolved here. More importantly, our two guys finally put their inner ghosts to rest by being honest with each other. That certainly didn't come as naturally to them outside the bedroom as it did inside. They almost managed to damage the trust that had been hard won in the first two books beyond repair. I loved having my heart bruised and then watching them come back together ...more

This is an amazing addition to The Cowboy and the Dom series and though I am sad that it is the last book I am so happy that Sam and Thomas finally get their HEA. No Ghosts is beautifully written, intense, sweet, emotional, sexy, deals well with some difficult issues, the characters are incredible and the ending is perfect. The relationship between Sam and Thomas is continually evolving as they deal with the aftermath of the attack on Sam and learn how to navigate their Dom/Sub dynamic so that t ...more

No Ghosts is the third book in The Cowboy and the Dom series by Jodi Payne and B.A. Tortuga. This book must be read in order. Not everything is resolved in this book, and I found I liked that. The relationship though is a HEA. There are other on-going things that are not resolved in this book though.
I found this story to be for me the most satisfying. Thomas and Sam are still working on who they are together. They are growing in a lot of good ways. They still have a ton to work out. But I felt t

Jodi is an amazing story teller love her writing style. A great conclusion to this trilogy, I loved all the characters except for the evil person. I’ve also loved the unique take on this D/s relationship how Sam constantly challenged Thomas, a beautiful heartwarming, with hot steamy scenes, romance. I loved Sams family as well. I would love for Bowie to have his story, I will keep my fingers crossed lol. Because of the complexities of Sam and Thomas’s relationship, for me, made them more realist ...more

I absolutely loved No Ghosts. This was an excellent conclusion to The Cowboy and His Dom trilogy. I really loved the dynamic between Sam and Thomas, they haven’t had an easy relationship, but I loved how they worked together. I was glad we got to visit Texas and Sam’s family. Sam’s aunt was a hoot and I loved how Thomas warmed up to Sam’s parents. I liked the mystery about James’ murder and the attacks on Sam was solved, that it wasn’t the most important aspect of the story which is good as I su ...more

Based on all the reviews, I know I’m in the minority. I feel like this book was a letdown in regard to ending this series. It took forever to reveal the murderer which was made way to obvious through the series. Three books of build up and then a few pages to end the mystery that was easily figured out earlier in the series. Okay, I know people may say that wasn’t the focus of the series, that the relationship between Sam and Thomas was the focus, but why start with a murder make that a central ...more

"No Ghosts" is a fitting title for the final volume in The Cowboy and the Dom trilogy. A ghost walks with both Sam and Thomas, though in different ways. While Sam is still being targeted by an unhinged person, that situation is really only a catalyst for what therapists would call "growth opportunities" between the two men. I love these men and how they learn to communicate with each other. There's a lot more D/s in this book than there is full-on BDSM, but it works well. It's not often I'm inte ...more

The final book in the series definitely did not disappoint, and wrapped up the series perfectly.

While it was fantastic the person who has had them under attack, and had murdered James, was finally caught, the most amazing part of the whole series for me was watching the 'Cowboy and the Dom' grow together.

So many times I got so wrapped up in their story that the focus for me changed from being "whodunnit", to "you need to talk to each other dumb arses" and sort things out.

An amazing book and se

You know a story ends well when all the loose ends are tied up. And this is true in this story as well. From a romantic angle Sam and Thomas are finally able to work through their communication issues and get pasts all those "ghosts" in their closet. From a mystery angle, all is reveled on who has been stalking who. There is so much more than just that. There is closure, there is love, there is heat, and there is getting the bad guy. It's all there and well done! And to top it off there is a set ...more

4.5 stars.. The story continues for Master Thomas and his sub, Sam in Thomas's care after an attack .
Both Thomas and Sam are still learning their limits with the bdsm scenes and more importantly communication. A good start to the book and they story progresses but trouble is not far away. Angel has some great advice for Sam that hits the nail on the head.
includes tender loving moments, communication fixes and new rules, travel, and more danger.
This has a dramatic ending to the book with the id

I loved seeing Thomas and Sam's relationship continue to grow and strengthen. They face difficulties and aren't always perfect making them so wonderful and lovable in my opinion. This has been an excellent series that I highly recommend! And there's a teaser of a book to come that I was hoping for and as such am very much looking forward to. Also one of my favorite places to visit in Texas is mentioned. Love it! ...more

The evolution of this series from book 1 to 3 is pretty interesting. From the personal aspect in which they learned how to be together, their kinks and limits and finally falling in love, to all the threats and danger and finally discovering what was happening and who the bag guy was. All this action and emotions around kept me at edge and I couldn’t stop reading until the very end. Wonderful way to finish a series!!
I received this book as an ARC and this is my honest opinion.

Loved No Ghost. This book was more about Sam and Thomas finding their way and a new normal for them as a couple. It was a sweet story. You could feel the need of one to take care of the other. I guessed right about the villain. I’m glad the story was more about the dynamics between Sam and Thomas than them and the bad guy. I can’t wait for Angel’s Story. Clint needs one too.
This is such a good series of action, based on sexy in a wonderful way. It is so well written with a great HEA. I have liked the characters from the start and how their relationships have evolved and grown as they explore their sub/Dom dynamic. I am sad that this trilogy is over but can’t wait for other characters to shine in their stories.

This is definitely a perfect title for this final story. This is an amazing conclusion to Thomas and Sam's story. We have this mystery that has me on the edge of my seat. But we also have how these two grow in their relationship. Jodi Payne and BA Tortuga both pull me into this whole world with these characters and make me fall in love. ...more

What a fabulous story this was in continuing the story and wrapping it up. I am in love with Thomas and Sam. They aren’t perfect in their roles which make the book wonderful and so heart felt.
So many roller coaster moments had me breathing deeply at times.

Recommend this to any one loving the genre.

I literally just finished this book and I feel so full of emotion that it’s hard to put into words. I can tell you that I adore this book and this series. If you like kinky mm romance then you definitely need to read these books.

So glad I found these two authors on a readers group on Facebook. I loved the power exchange and the storyline. I'm going to read about Bowie and Angel.

JODI spent too many years in New York and San Francisco stage managing classical plays, edgy fringe work, and the occasional musical. She, therefore, is overdramatic, takes herself way too seriously, and has been known to randomly break out in song. Her men are imperfect but genuine, stubborn but likable, often kinky, and frequently their own worst enemies. They are characters you can’t help but f ...more
