THE BOYFRIEND BOOKMARK: ★★★★
Ever since rock star Keaton Lowe surprised her in the girl’s locker room, Thea can’t stop thinking about him. On top of his status and enticing ways, he seems to know everything about her. But some of his actions cross the line, and Keaton needs to be punished. Will Thea keep her head in the game, or get distracted by her other favorite pastime—reprimanding her rock star?
I didn’t quite see how this would play out in my head. A basketball star and a rock star… quite the combination. She’s on the top of her game, well, almost. He’s on the top of the charts… but can the two of them find a fit in this crazy world?
Thea is a basketball star on the rise. But after a bad, bad game she knows she needs to step it up a notch. It was a bad game. But what made it worse was the experience in the locker room when she went back to retrieve her lucky tape. But once she finally made it into the locker room, she wanted a shower. So she stepped in and took one. But what she wasn’t expecting when she got out of the shower is exactly what she got.
Keaton just needed a quick smoke before he went on stage that night. But when he snuck into that locker room, he got more than a quick smoke. He saw more, he wanted more. He was sharp, cunning and ready to go after what he wanted. But… he is a rock star… with a reputation. But she caught his eye…there is something that he sees in her that he hasn’t seen in anyone, ever.
But seriously? How is a basketball player ever going to be enough for a rock star? He has a crowd of adoring fans waiting for him night after night… she has a basketball scholarship that she needs to keep… can the two of them possibly find something to keep them together despite the odds?
Well I guess there’s always a baby Domme in the making to keep things interesting… Ahh… self discovering. Finding out what it is you want and learning the tricks of the trade… it’s so much more, but it is a big balancing act.
This book was interesting. It wasn’t a typical D/s relationship that we tend to find in most books. It’s the process of discovering that you are someone that needs control. Finding out that you are someone that wants control… but can you fully have control when two crazy worlds collide?
I enjoyed this book but for me it lacked a little on the angst that I have come to crave in my books. There weren’t a lot of oh my moments that I have come to expect. There wasn’t anything too over the top crazy. It was young and flirty and hot. The moments when these two were together you caught the chemistry immediately. When they weren’t you felt the loss that they felt. It was a great change of pace from the traditional D/s relationship without being too over the top.
It was a good book, I think I just expected a little more from the relationship. There were a few unanswered questions that lingered through the end of the book, but I felt it told the story of two people from opposite worlds trying to make things work in a very unconventional way.
