Recoil: A Ripples in the Status Quo Story (Ripples in the Status Quo #3) by R. Phoenix #mm #review @RaissaPhoenix


Disclaimer MaleTAG

Over the past decade, Khaz has watched as supernatural creatures like himself have turned the world into their own personal playground. Unlike the others, he didn’t benefit from the Takeover, and every time he sells himself to keep a roof over his head, he’s keenly aware of that fact. His landlord, a renowned slaver, offers him the chance to catch up on his rent by breaking a human.

Groomed to fight, Noah has survived by giving himself over to his hatred of those who took everything away from humanity. When the werewolf can’t break him, he’s given to the vampire instead-and he’s sure this will be no different. The problem is that even the harsh lessons the Rebellion taught him couldn’t prepare him for someone like Khaz…who always has an ace up his sleeve.

This is book 3 in this series.   They are all stand alone books.  They are quick reads this one is a dark erotica.

I found this story to move a little slow and was played out almost entirely around the 2 main characters.   There is little else going on outside of there interactions.   However between the main characters there is alot going on.  The range of emotions expressed throughout  this story is extreme and their are a few surprises that will make you think twice.  Overall it is a story that will make you think, which makes it a good one to me.

The build up to the sexual part of this book is long and confused but it builds slow but it burns really hot.  This book plays with two characters who find themselves both in there own type of trouble.  Yet both prisoners in there own ways.  It’s a challenge to find a solution that will let them both live.

4 stars
