Razor by Margie Church and K.B. Cutter: The Review

Amy and Bryce don't live the Dominant/submissive lifestyle, but Bryce acts every bit the Dom in the bedroom. And Amy's had enough. Enlisting her best friend's help is a drastic move. Will inviting Raine into her marriage destroy it? How will she cope when Bryce and Raine become intimate?

Though Bryce doubts he'll ever become a switch, he's determined to make Amy happy. Months later, he struggles to keep an emotional distance from Raine. His journey of self-awareness is anything but predictable or vanilla.

After only a few scenes with Bryce, Raine's roles as Domme and best friend blur. Her ideals about love and marriage shift. She questions her own motives at every turn. Can she get out of this relationship triangle unscathed?

Three people with different motives come together to form a very contemporary relationship. Who will get what they want, and who will be forever changed?

The Review:

What would you do if you wanted something from your husband in the bedroom but were afraid to ask? What if your best friend could give it to you? Would you do it? 

Amy wants her husband Bryce to be more submissive in the bedroom and her best friend Raine is a Domme. She could be the answer to the couple's prayers-or the end of their marriage. When Amy asks Raine to train her husband to become more of a sub and less of a Dom, sparks begin to fly. Amy is frustrated because Bryce is very hot and cold. No matter what she does sometimes, he just won't bend. It is always his way or the highway, sexually speaking, and she craves more.

Enter Raine, the sexy best friend who takes on the task of training Bryce. The scenes between them scorched my e-reader as I turned the pages faster and faster to see what would happen next. Hot doesn't even begin to cover it. Ice melting, find a cold shower, grab your husband for a moment of inspirational sex is more like it. Whew! *fans face*. 

The combination of Raine teaching Bryce, Amy's struggles to understand her feelings about the situation they are in and her newly emerging feelings about Raine are an explosive blend of fiery erotic fiction. The m/f scenes are hot and the f/f/m combinations in the later part of the book were even better. The only part of the book that bothered me on occasion were a couple of dialogue pieces that didn't fit and one typo on page 94, but that was it. In no way did those things detract from my enjoyment of the book.

The dynamics of the BDSM elements were right on and reminded me of the things in The Siren that I enjoyed. The relationship between the Dom/Domme and sub and the power and trust balance that is essential. Authors Church and Cutter have gotten the scene right and made me feel like I was right there in the Cellar with Raine and her Master. The physicality of the pain/pleasure model was perfect and I felt my heart bleed for Raine and the situation she finds herself in. Keep her friend? Keep her lover? Leave them both? Save herself or drown in the emotions that are tearing her to shreds. You simply have to read this book to find out the ending. 

If you like a book with BDSM elements that roams into menage action, then you will love this scorcher. It will tear out your heart, stomp on it with some kick ass boots and hand you some chocolate. Wonderful read!!


Stay tuned for the up and coming interview with the authors!

Authors' Biographies

                About K.B. Cutter: Born and bred Long Islander, I grew up working class poor. There were few escapes for me: The beach, the bay and books. I fell in love with all three. 

                As I grew older, I became a voracious reader. The natural evolutionary process led me to write. I filled countless notebooks with my fevered scribblings. Eventually, I found an exceptional interactive writing forum. For years, I wrote in every conceivable genre and sub-genre.

                While I am a member of the Thin Blue Line at night, during the day I create stories of erotic romance and dark horror. One day, I will marry the two successfully. The results, I hope, will be bloody sexy!
