Description: A year ago, my best friend Hal died at the hands of an incompetent “dom.” So I started the Subs Club, a private blog where submissives can review doms and call out the douche bags.

A perfect example of the kind of arrogant asshole I mean? The Disciplinarian. He has a pornstache. He loves meat, stoicism, America, and real discipline. And he thinks subs exist to serve him.

But . . . not everything about him is awful. His Davy Crockett act just seems like a cover for his fear of intimacy, and part of me wants to show him it’s okay to get close to people. And, I mean, sue me, but I have fantasized about real discipline. Not role-play, but like, Dave, you’re gonna be thirty in four years and you still work in a mall; get your ass in gear or I’ll spank it.

Not that I’d ever trust anyone with that kind of control.

I’m gonna redefine “battle of wills” for the Disciplinarian. Or I’m gonna bone him. It’s hard to say.

Review: This book is really important in my eyes, because it focusses on important issues (like consent and how safe you should be) without becoming lecturing. And there are so many different kinks at least mentioned. Finally.

Sadly I wasn’t really invested in the (romantic) relationship between the two Davids. MC David doesn’t have the highest opinion of himself and that may be why I didn’t like him much (could change with the later books though!). Love interest David was an interesting character, but only as long as I could forget the moustache (personal preference, brr). Just kidding, he is interesting either way and it fits him. The D/s relationship was very interesting and kinda intense. There is definitely some sort of danger vibe behind the story.

I’m excited to read about MC David’s friends’ stories.

  1. I do wish we saw more of David in the next book, although the glimpse of him we get through his friend’s eyes is pretty interesting. Hahaha about the mustache though! I’m not a fan either, but I found David’s fascination about it completely hilarious.
