Hot Pink Condom by M.L. Montgomery


 Roleplaying keeps McKayla safe, keeps her feelings and her emotions in check. All she can think of is the next scene and feeling the man of her dreams giving her the pleasure she craves. She knows, as he does that no matter who holds the crop, no matter who is tied up, no matter what role they are playing, Kurt is the true Alpha, the true Dom to her
submissive side. She knows one word from him, her mind instantly melts and awaits his direction.
But she fears her relationship with Kurt is slipping away, because she can’t give him what he really wants. And his long absences for work give her too much time between scenes to fixate on what that is: love. For her to say it. She shows it; she’s damn good at showing it whenever they spend time together. Still, if she says it, everything between them will change forever. If she doesn’t, soon, she may just lose him.

Role playing. These are two very important words I missed when skimming over the blurb for Hot Pink Condom prior to starting it this evening. Generally speaking, cheating is not a deal breaker for me when reading a romance; I tend to judge its presence in a book on a case-by-case basis. However,  when the partner being cheated on is in love (not obsessed) with the cheater and the cheater is messing around just because they can, it tends to make me uncomfortable. Yes, in the world of fiction I have no problem justifying cheating – it’s fiction and face it, in fiction, some characters deserve to be cheated on. And because I missed those two very important words – role playing – I was getting uncomfortable with Hot Pink Condom as McKayla and Conner flirted back and forth until a possible misstatement in their conversation sent me back to the blurb, where I finally saw those two crucial words that allowed me to dig in and enjoy the heck out of this book.
Despite living in separate cities due to work, McKayla and Kurt have been together for five years. One of the reasons their long-distance romance has endured is because they both share the same kink – role playing. As you read Hot Pink Condom you will learn that they have a few other kinks in common that make their weekend together hella hot. After an extremely long week at work, McKayla heads out to her favorite bar for a drink or two. Within a few minutes of her arrival the barstool beside her is occupied by a man who makes her mouth water and other body parts tingle, all of which go into overdrive when he starts talking to her. When “Conner” tells McKayla exactly what he wants to do to her, let’s just say that McKayla wasn’t the only one panting at his suggestions. And things only got hotter when they left the bar and went back to her apartment. Good grief these two are freaking hot together. As McKayla is so deep into the role playing that even her thoughts don’t betray her, I was relieved when I realized that Conner was actually Kurt. The chemistry between the two is intense and that intensity ratchets up when Kurt’s dominance comes out during their scene. Although Hot Pink Condom is only about that night and there are certainly unresolved issues, the author sets the stage for the next book without leaving you on the edge of a cliff. I enjoyed Ms. Montgomery’s writing and am looking forward to reading Hot Pink Crop to see what happens to Kurt and McKayla next.
