The 18th book in the Black Light series brings us a couple of new things. One is that we get Lesley Clark. The other thing that Unbound gives us is a full-length MM story. We’ve seen some MM action with Jaxon and Chase, but they also have Emma, so we get bi action instead of straight up gay action, and yes, I totally realize how funny it is to say straight when describing gay sex. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy with MFM, MMF, MM, FF, and any other number or configuration, I’m just pointing out the difference between Jaxon, Chase, and Emma and Jamie and Dom’s story.
Jamie has just come back from tour with his best friend, Jazz. When they get home, her man and Dominant is waiting for her, which leaves Jamie kinda sad. He wants what Jazz has. So, the next day, Jamie decides that he’s going to go out to a BDSM club and get his play on. First, though, he’s going to go to the gym in their building, when he meets one very, very hot Italian stallion. That night, Jamie goes out, and meets up with a terrible fate. A couple of men grab him and beat him down because he’s gay.
Fast forward 8 months, and Jamie is dealing with a huge fucking dose of PTSD and depression. He can only manage to make it to the gym in his building, where he will leave, unless the Italian stallion is there.
Over the past few months, Dom has been trying to make an effort to connect with the pretty boy who lives in his building. Then, when a friend asks for help, he gets a connection to his pretty boy handed right to him.
Poor Jamie. While we don’t get to know him all that well before his attack, you can tell that he was a sweet, loving, friendly, and fun person. Then he was put through hell. I mean, it’s no wonder that he’s dealing with all kinds of mental health issues. And of course, he’s going to push everyone away. It’s just kinda what happens. It’s not like he’s trying to hurt anyone or that he wants to hurt anyone, it’s just that he hurts so much that he just can’t really do anything else. He tries to be fine, but it just hurts those who love him. I think part of the reason that Jazz hurts so much about Jamie’s situation is that she does loves him so much, and she just wants him to be better and she wants to make the situation better. Which, I can understand that feeling too. I really had a lot of sympathy and empathy for Jamie. I was cheering for him the whole time.
Dominic the Dominant is a good guy. He takes care of Jamie quite well. I think that his version of tough love is the only thing that could’ve gotten through to Jamie. But no matter how tough he was on Jamie, Dom was very careful with him too. He made sure that he spent the time to think about what to do, and to think about what might help Jamie the most. Sure, Dom was getting his rocks off, I mean, who wouldn’t in that situation, but that wasn’t his main goal. His main goal was to help Jamie, and to build him up and make him stronger. He doesn’t stand in front of Jamie and shield him, unless absolutely necessary, but he does stand beside Jamie and give him support.
All in all, this was a fantastic book, and Jamie and Dom are one of my new top fave Black Light couples.
I love the scene in Black Light. It wasss seriously hot as fuck.
OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!
