Summary:

ven after the “I do’s” are said, relationships change and need work to grow and thrive. Aaron has found himself increasingly drawn to the idea of taking his and Greg’s BDSM-lite games to the next level. Unsure if he can fully unleash his inner sadist without losing complete control, he seeks out a professional Dom to teach him the literal, and figurative, ropes.

Greg isn’t the same intractable, walking wounded he was when he and Aaron met, but Aaron is still his touchstone to happiness. Greg would like to learn how to approach Aaron’s Zen-like calm, but first he knows he needs to learn the most elusive lesson of all: self love. When he discovers what Aaron has been up to, he struggles to understand how he fits into his lover’s new version of himself.

In Numbers Game, together, Aaron and Greg embark on a sensual journey that, over a few short hours, will change the course of their relationship and their lives. In the end, they prove that through love, and a little dance called dominance and submission, even the most impossible things become possible.

Story Review:

Caroline reviewed the eBook here.

 

I didn’t love the book as much as Caroline did but that has more to do with my dislike of BDSM stories.

Throughout the series Greg and Aaron have had a BDSM-lite relationship that I found interesting and hot. But the step into the official world of BDSM just didn’t work for me.

The way Greg and Aaron played mind games and manipulated each other didn’t sit right with me. I don’t think games and manipulation have any place in a loving, honest relationship.

I do wish the book had been longer so I could’ve seen more of how Greg and Aaron deal with their relationship.

If you’ve read the rest of the series and enjoy BDSM I’d recommend this book. However, if BDSM isn’t your thing I’d stay away.

Narration Review:

Noah Michael Levine did excellent here just like he did with the rest of the Hollywood series. His deep voice was perfect for the darker tone of the story.
