I enjoy to read a story that revisits a couple and allows us to see how the relationship has developed over time And this book is no exception It was great to see Noah and Pierce after five years.I was a bit doubtful when the story started with so much domesticity but I needn t have worried pretty quickly sex in the kitchen was on the agenda Although I must admit surprise that they were up for kitchen sex with a teenage daughter in the house as I haven t heard to too many kitchens with locks Noah and Pierce reach a turning point in their relationship Doubts and insecurities creep in There are secrets and lack of communication Once again I was surprised at Pierce s brother Francis involvement and the information he keeps from his brother Of course he knew It all made perfect sense Noah could have relied on Francis to keep his secret Pierce had never figured out whether it was the Dom or the psychologist in Francis who protected what was confided to him so fiercely Whichever part of him it was, he would never betray the trust put into him Not ever for the sake of saving a failing relationship And when it came to Noah s submission, I wanted Francis to back right off and let Pierce take the reins My only slight criticism and it is minor was the repeated use of nn nn in conversation For some reason it annoyed me Maybe bec

Noah and Pierce five years later There are some issues cropping up and the biggest is lack of communication compounded by lack of sleep All of this almost causes Pierce to derail the whole thing Add into the mix a pre teen girl, infant, and long lost brother and its a wonder they sta
I always like the idea of reading a Sage Marlowe novel As I scan the reviews and the author s blurb, the promise of things to come is usually a strong pull for me It sounds like just the kind of thing I m looking for and I go for it I want to love it Then comes the book in this case, Sub Culture.All is there as promised but what is omitted in the author s telling the tale often speaks loudly to me than what is recounted The segues are bold, in that they leap way too far ahead of where my simple mind is dwelling at the time, making me hope that what s skipped will be filled in later Usually it isn t and I have to settle for being told rather than being shown This is most evident in where this story picks up from the original introduction of the characters, Pierce and Noah, from book one, Sub Mission We re now plunged into a scene 5 years later with characters and circumstances squabbling, a screaming baby, unwanted visitor moving in, etc that are far different from those we left in book one and the leap comes as a bit of a shock I do understand, however, Ms Marlowe s need to create a starting point for the arc she wants to create and in that she succeeds Overall, eroticism here is held out like a carrot Even though the long awaited turnabout that Noah finally make
Third book in the series and another book I have loved and totally devoured Three books in a week, that hasn t happened for some time What I loved about this book was the fact we got to see Noah Pierce some years later than in the last book, and see how both marriage and fatherhood has changed them It would ve been easy to make this a happy book, but it just wouldn t have worked for me Take busy careers, an impending transition for their daughter into teenager and then throw in a baby and you have a great mix of factors, any of which could cause friction and drama even in the most settled and happy of relationships.It seems that all is not well in the dynamic of our leading men, beneath the surface there are issues which threaten to tear them apart if they are not willing to fight tooth and nail to keep their love alive.I will be honest, I wanted to slap both of them at times, but for very different reasons Each of them brought out such strong emotions in me and that is because these characters have been SO well written and developed it makes them feel real Noah is hiding something, and I hate to say it, I kind guessed what it was but had to wait to find out that I was correct Also, I never lost faith in either of them to work through their demons and emerge a stronger couple.Sage has a way of pulling me inside his books and I am now itching for book 4 in this series and kinda wish I hadn t read these so quickly But the great
By now I m sure you all know I m a real Sage Marlowe fan I m slowly working my way through everything he s written because I just love his stories of real men in real situations Sage writes stories that are incredibly vivid, realistic and invoke the sorts of responses that a book should invoke By these I mean the lump in the throat, the flood of tears to eyes that have been touched by a tender moment and there s a lot of those , the clench of the heart when you realise one of the characters is in pain and of course, the tingle when you read a really hot and sexy, erotic scene between these two men and all the other wonderfully graphic images that Sage conjures up.All in all, this story of Pierce and Noah and their struggle to keep their family together and their love for each other alive, faced with Noah s secrets and his hidden ne
This is the third in the Sub series by Sage Marlowe In this book, you ll see how a couple struggle with keeping their lives together How they raise their children, especially a very nice young lady, that I absolutely love 3 How they take turns at nights for their little baby boy How they feel betrayed with or without reason, I won t spoil it for you How they desperately want to make it works.This is the story of Noah and Pierce, several years after Sub Mission Butnot only.What I have to say is that anybody can find themselves in this book This is a story about real life couples No matter if you re gay, straight or whatever you feel you are This is necessarily a bit of your story if you are in couple Who doesn t fight Who doesn t have conflicts Who doesn t make what s in their power to make it works Every each of us does that.This is a universal story I felt that way for the other two too but especially
Loved Noah Fantastic again Loving that Noah and Pierce finally got thier needs figured out sexy, sweet, kinky loving, trusting HOT HOT HOT I am so loving these men, these stories
