The Subs Club

The Subs Club - J.A. Rock This was really good and I can't wait to read the rest of the series. I wish it was already out! A group of friends, who are submissive, are dealing with the death of one of their own. Dave, the MC of this book, is struggling to find his place as a submissive. He decides to create "The Subs Club", a blog where submissives can openly discuss issues with Doms they've played with and review them in hopes of warning others which Doms are and aren't safe to play with. But, of course, it's the internet and it eventually gets out of hand. I absolutely loved the topic of this book. It's a serious topic, but it's dealt with in a light-hearted way that doesn't give the book a dark feeling.

It wasn't what I was expecting from a BDSM book. I felt there was more focus on the sub club and how Dave was handling his friend's death. It was more a story of personal growth in the aftermath of tragedy with a romantic subplot thrown in. But it worked and I enjoyed it. I think maybe that's why I also felt the sex was surprisingly tame and sparse, although the BDSM scenes were definitely not.

I look forward to seeing how each of the other boys deals with the tragedy and finds his own way.
