Blog Tour and Review: 24/7 (The Subs Club #4) by J.A. Rock

247_TourBanner

Hi! I’m J.A. Rock, and right now I’m touring the internet talking about my latest release, 24/7—Book 4 in The Subs Club series. Thanks so much to the blogs that are hosting me on this tour, and be sure to leave comments on the tour posts for a chance to win a $15 Riptide Publishing gift card!

About 24/7

We started the Subs Club to make the kink community safer for subs. Except now the others are so busy chasing their happy endings, it’s like they’ve forgotten what Bill did to Hal and the fact that he got away with it. They used to think I was betraying Hal’s memory by hooking up with the owners of the club where he died. Now they don’t seem to care about any of it anymore.

Maybe I am sometimes angry with GK and Kel for giving Bill a second chance, but they’ve been mentoring me for a year now, and whatever else they’ve done, they make me feel incredibly safe. So I want to try something: I want to offer them my complete submission, 24/7. To serve the people who forgave Bill. That’s the way I want to hurt.

Except I’m starting to care about them in a way I never meant to—and I think they feel the same way. But after Hal, I don’t know if I want to be in love again. Because what I really need, more than anything, is to see Bill brought to justice. Even if I have to do it myself. Even if it means losing GK and Kel.

About the Subs Club series

After the death of their friend Hal at the hands of an irresponsible dom, submissive friends Dave, Kamen, Miles, and Gould band together to form the Subs Club—an organization seeking to expose dangerous local doms. The club slowly evolves as romances blossom, loyalties are tested, and tensions mount in a community already struggling for unity in the wake of Hal’s death.

From domestic discipline to knife play to fashion paraphilia, and from family drama to new jobs to first loves, the members of the Subs Club explore life’s kinks inside and outside of the bedroom as they attempt to let go of the past and move forward.

Our Thoughts

From the beginning of the series, Gould is the one friend we know the least about. What we do knows is that he was Hal’s best friend since childhood and they became involved in a relationship that didn’t quite work out. Hal is taken from Gould in the most unfortunate way, during a BDSM scene at club Riddle. The whole situation was tragic and handled in such a way that no one really knew what really happened and who was to blame. Gould feels it is 100 percent obvious. Bill, the Dom Hal was playing with, was responsible and he got off. He didn’t pay. He is alive living his life (not in jail, not paying for his crime) and Hal is dead.

Gould was the quiet one of the bunch. When they wanted him to take part in their group conversations, they could always count on him to be there and respond in the affirmative. It’s like Gould was just part of the furniture. This is why we don’t know him well going into his story. What we quickly discover is that Gould is a mess. Thank goodness for the internal dialogue JA Rock writes for Gould. Without it, we’d have nothing on him. He just doesn’t speak his mind. Ever. It’s actually frustrating at times and impacts his relationships and potential play partners. He never really says what he wants or needs in a scene let alone when with friends. He just goes along with whatever is done, suggested, or planned.

Gould starts to play with Greg and Kel, the owners of Riddle. I truly wondered if he was doing this to get revenge for them forgiving Bill and mentoring him after the trial. Soon, it is apparent that he actually is attracted to Kel and has a growing fondness for Greg as well. The whole Bill and Hal situation just muddies up everything for Gould. He’s still grieving but does it silently and internally. No one can help him because he just won’t talk! Gould asks Kel to be his Master so he can be her slave, thinking the degradation and humiliation will help break him and remove all the pain. That might have worked if he wasn’t holding onto so much pain and guilt. He thinks so lowly of himself but he’s also seriously missing Hal. He’s not whole and trying to become whole through humiliation isn’t the answer.

Needless to say, it becomes a total shit storm (sorry for the language but it is) for everyone, Gould, Greg, Kel, Dave, Miles, and Kamen. Even as the story finishes I felt Gould was still unstable. Finally healing, yes. Better, yes. Still unstable, yes. He was just so all over the place emotionally and he had no outlet. no communication skills to work through everything and heal. Instead, he deflects and thinks that giving up who he is through being a slave will make everything better. The pain from losing Hal would disappear. Thing is, Gould was holding onto Hal so tightly that he would never be able to let go of the pain. He sought memories of Hal out, trying so hard to hold on to every memory that he was self-sabotaging.

If I had to choose one word to describe Gould and his story, it would be complex. I still don’t feel I fully know him or understand his wants or needs. I do believe that’s because he doesn’t either. Gould will continue to be an enigma in chaos until he fully heals and that’s totally okay. He has amazing friends and they are there for him in good and bad times.

SPOTLIGHT & GUEST POST: Charmed by Jacey Holbrand

Charmed_TourBannerToday we’re happy to highlight Charmed, a new ménage book which happens to be the second in the Glorious Guild of Lady Windsurfer series from Jacey Holbrand. Jacey’s here to share the Top Ten things you may not know about the area where Charmed is set, as well as an excerpt and other information about the book. Be sure to enter the giveaway for a chance to win!

Top 10 for Charmed by Jacey Holbrand

Because Charmed takes place in a futuristic Las Vegas, NV setting, I wanted to share some interesting factoids about the area.

10. 1946: The Pink Flamingo opens, built by notorious mobster Bugsy Siegel. It is the first luxury hotel on the Strip, It would become The Fabulous Flamingo in 1947, The Flamingo Hilton in 1974, and Flamingo Las Vegas in 1999. (1)

9. Nevada State Route 375 is also known as Extraterrestrial Highway. The highway was given the name in 1996. (2)

8. Along the Extraterrestrial Highway you’ll find the Black Mailbox (though now it’s actually white). It’s a locked box that’s protected by a quarter-inch-thick bulletproof metal, located along Tikaboo Valley off a dirt road (which leads to the restricted Area 51). Allegedly, there are between two to three UFO sightings here a week! (3)

7. If you get hungry or need a place to sleep for the night, pull over to the Little A’le’inn, a bar, restaurant and motel. Here you can order the “Alien burger” and learn about Area 51. (3)

6. Lake Mead – The massive body of water was created in 1936 after the construction of the Hoover Dam on the Colorado River. (4)

5. Lake Mead hasn’t been officially full—1,221 feet above sea level—since 1983. (4)

4. In 2014, thanks to a wetland rehabilitation project in Mexico, the Colorado briefly reached the Sea of Cortez again for the first time since the El Niño floods of 1998. Before humans started tampering with building massive dams on the Colorado, it did so every year. (4)

3. A decade ago, Lake Mead was home to nine boat launch ramps and six marinas. Six ramps and three marinas remain open today. (5)

2. People used to come to Las Vegas to watch the nuclear testing that happened outside of the city limits. The National Atomic Testing Museum is in Las Vegas. (6)

1. Although most people are completely unaware of its existence, the UFO-Nukes Connection is now remarkably well-documented. U.S. Air Force, FBI, and CIA files declassified via the Freedom of Information Act establish a convincing, ongoing pattern of UFO activity at American nuclear weapons sites extending back to December 1948. (7)

EXCERPT

He pulled away. “You like it rough?”

She lifted and dropped a shoulder. “Now and then.” Charm smiled. “You seem a bit overdressed. How about you join me in your birthday suit?”

“Birthday suit?” ‘Where do humans come up with their terms?’

Charm waved a hand up and down in front of her, indicating her body. “Naked, dude. Take it all off.” She twirled a finger at him.

Wade made quick work of getting out of his clothes and tossed them on top of her outfit. Her gaze raked his body, and he stood proud and tall, letting her drink in her fill of him. Her eyes widened when her attention landed on his hard cock. “Impressive, aren’t I?”

Charm nodded. “Very. You remind me of the pictures of Navy Seals my grandfather once showed me. Tall, fit, muscular. Predatory in a way.”

He plastered a devilish smile on his face and stepped toward her. She moved back. Another step and her cute ass hit the wall. Leaning in, he placed his hands on the stone on each side of her head and whispered, “Predatory. I like that word. Think you can take all of me in your pussy?”

She bobbed her head again, then looked up with wide eyes. “Sure,” her voice squeaked.

Just like the predator she thought him to be, he kept her trapped in the spot and decided to toy with her. “Do not be afraid of me. Show me your confidence. It, as you humans say, turns me on.”

Wade learned every nuance of her body using his hands, lips, and tongue, eliciting musical groans and whimpers from her and loving her feminine softness. She bent her body in his direction when he suckled on the hard nub of her breast. While he teased the nipple, he grasped her other tit, squeezed and massaged the mound.

Charm fit so perfectly in his hand, against his body. He must have done something right in his life to have received such a wonderful gift. Kissing her shoulder then neck, he moved his hand from her breast down to the silky patch of hair and then to her pussy. She parted her legs. Taking her movement as an invitation, he fondled her velvety folds with his thumb and forefinger and tweaked her clit as he slid his other fingers in and out of her canal.

“I need to taste you.” Wade dropped to his knees in front of her, sliding his hands down her legs and coaxing her knees farther apart.

Gaining access, Wade kissed his way up her thigh to her pussy. He licked her moist folds and dipped his tongue into her slit. ‘So luscious, like honey. So fetching.’ He needed more of her and wanted her to respond to him as she never had with anyone else ever before, so he tongued her as if it were his cock pounding her.
