THE DOM, THE SWITCH AND THE SUB was a surprising and enjoyable read where the usually clear defined roles within the D/s community get blurred. You have the Dominant and you have the submissive. And most people know what those roles are. But occasionally there are those who are called switches. They dominate subs but also submit to stronger Doms.
This is also a story about going and getting what you want and communication. Zack wanted to be Serena's Dom for as long as they've lived together. But he figures a slow approach is the best. Serena has wanted Zack to be her Dom for the same length of time. And the fact that they both work at a BDSM club should have told Zack she didn't need or want the kid glove, slow approach.
I love how the author has them bantering back and forth and at cross purposes with each other. And what is it going to take to get them together?
Luke, a Dom's Dominant in every meaning of the word. Ex-military, he's still dealing with issues from his service and trying to help members from his old squad with PTSD. He's been watching both Serena and Zack, and he knows that Zack wants Serena, but from some of Zack's action, maybe he's a switch. And that's just fine in his books, because he wants them both. But will Zack accept submitting to him? What happens when his past comes back to haunt them?
The author did a sensitive job with writing about Luke's dealing with his buddy's PTSD, and that not all of those dealing with it can be saved. But that you still have to try and you can't give up. She also did a wonderful job with the fun characters of Zack and Serena versus the serious nature of Luke.
This is a very well-written story that is both fun and heartbreaking. I will be reading more by this author.
