Nicolina is back with her West Coast Doms in Restraining Reeba. We met Reeba back in Sandra’s book, and now she has her own, and I’m totally here for it.
So, we have Reeba, who is working with her burlesque group and filming a documentary for Sandra. Reeba owes part of the club she’s working at, and her goal is to eventually own all of it. Right now, she’s in business with her ex, Fabian, and she doesn’t really like that part at all, but he’s a necessary evil, at least for right now.
Samuel, who is Sandra’s man, calls his buddy Ryder, trying to get him to go in and buy part of the club. Ryder isn’t here for it, but he does go and watch the show, and there is something that is totally awesome about that show. That would be the woman in charge, with electric blue hair, Reeba.
One day, when Reeba gets bitten by a spider, and ends up at the ER. When she goes into the club for rehearsal that night, it turns out that she has been having all kinds of accidents lately. If you didn’t look at them altogether, you might think that they are all coincidences, but when you look at them altogether, it shows that it’s a pattern. So, Samuel and Ryder decide that they will watch her. And well, by watch, I mean that Ryder kidnaps her.
Reeba is fucking fierce. She is independent, ambitious, talented, and driven. She sings, she dances, and she wants to own the club, and she’s going to make it happen. She’s also not worried about telling someone what she thinks. Frankly, I’m surprised that she didn’t outright gut Ryder at times. Or at least kick him in his balls. He deserved it sometimes, I think. I do like that she is so determined to do what she wants to do. But even with being as driven as she is, she is willing to listen and try to stay away from the trouble following her. It took a hot minute for it to settle in, but no one really wants to think that there are people trying to kill them. Reeba also fiercely loves, she has such a great heart. She’s just generally a good person.
When it comes to Nicolina’s heroes, I quite often dislike them at the start, and it takes me time to warm up to them, or there is a point where I really hate them. (I’m looking squarely at you, Christian.) There is only one of her heroes that I don’t like at all, but that isn’t Ryder. I like Ryder from the very beginning. There is something really broken and vulnerable about him. I mean, most of the guys in this series are broken in some way, but I think it’s closer to the surface in him than it is in other guys. I don’t know what it is. I kinda wanted to just take him home, and hug him, and love him, and pet him. I can understand where his choices are coming from, and they make sense coming from his background. I mean, they aren’t necessarily legal or anything, but they make sense.
I can’t wait for Felix’s book. I’m kinda mad at him right now.
OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!
