The blurb of this book really caught my attention and I was all over it when I saw it is written by Rachel Robinson. I loved Crazy Good so that made me have quite high expectations about this one. Let’s just say, The Dom Games is pretty different from what I have read by this author but still I enjoyed it.
The Dom Games is a stand-alone novel and it tells the story of Dominic ‘Dom’ Reed (the wealthy creator of a very-famous TV show called The Dom Games who now will become the star of the new season) and Kayla Parchet (a sassy not-very-submissive woman who needs money for her master’s degree, decides to cast for the TV show and finds herself in a emotional journey that she was not expecting).
“Ladies. Meet your Dom. Dominic Reed, founder, owner, and operator of The Dom Games and Reed Studios. Dominic, meet your harem.”
This was definitely far from what I am used to. In other words, The Dom Games is different because it deals with a plot that introduces ten submissive women that have to win Dominic Reed’s heart. This is not about one woman fighting for one man, this is about several women wanting the same man. It’s obvious since the first time they see each other that Dom and Kayla have a special connection. They have a very strong and hot chemistry, of course, but they also go through a very emotional roller coaster.
“You want to come. […] But I don’t want you to come, because you’re a fucking naughty girl, Kayla.”
“Everything about you makes me want more. I want every tiny piece of you until there’s nothing left.”
I have to say I loved the scenes between these two. The sex is crazy hot and when the emotions get involved, it was even better! Also, this was unusual (coming from Robinson) because it has a romantic comedy feel to it. Kayla is obviously sassy and Dom secretly loves it! So, overall, the relationship between the main characters was pretty good for me.
Dominic Reed ruined me for the rest of the male population on planet Earth.
However, I have to say there was one aspect that stopped me from giving The Dom Games a higher rating: Dom’s scenes with the other women in the program and how he reacts sometimes towards Kayla’s feelings. I know it (kind of) was because of the TV show rules but I felt that he was betraying Kayla when he had scenes with the other participants. I especially hated Dominic when (view spoiler). I did not enjoy that at all. But, thank God, everything got better at the end!
You are a piece, the only piece of the puzzle of life that matters.
Therefore, my rating for The Dom Games is 4 STARS because I enjoyed almost everything about this book, especially the chemistry between the main characters and when they showed their feelings for each other. So, if you want to read a different love story with a dominant man and a sassy but sweet woman, check this one out!
