H is for… (BDSM Checklist Series, Book Eight) by L. Dubois

Blurb:

Rosa hoped becoming a submissive would fix her relationship with Liam. It hasn’t.

Liam has loved Rosa nearly half his life, but he knows he doesn’t make her happy. The one thing he wants more than anything is to keep her safe. He would never hurt her–she’s been hurt enough.

When Rosa and Liam are assigned to the letter H as part of their BDSM club’s new checklist game, a chance to come together instead becomes a reason to drift further apart. With so many items on the list for H, they aren’t the only people assigned to the letter. Thinking it will make her happy, Liam allows Rosa to join another Dom’s harem. Pushed to his breaking point by what he see’s his lover doing, Liam will decide if their past will stop him from becoming the Master she needs, or if he’ll accept the darkness of his own desires.

My Review:

H is for...: BDSM Checklist, Book EightH is for…: BDSM Checklist, Book Eight by L Dubois

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book…I’m not quite sure where to start. The emotional hurt in this book is heartbreaking. Both characters are hurting so bad, it’s hard not to connect with them. From the beginning, you can tell that there is a relationship between the two, outside of Las Palmas. But you can also tell it’s a very toxic relationship. Even though the love was there, and it was blindingly pure between these two, I wasn’t sure if it was better for them to be together or apart.

Rosa is a submissive, down to her bones. But there is a tragedy in her past that is forcing her into a role she doesn’t come to naturally. And it is destroying her relationship with her Master.

Liam is trying to be what Rosa needs, but isn’t sure if that is who he is. He spends so much time and effort trying to assure that he is meeting her needs, that he misses the mark. And it’s tearing them apart.

This story was hard to read, simply because of how emotional it was. But it was also a beautiful story. It focuses less on the checklist game (even though it plays a big part in the story) and more on the journey these two have in front of them, to hopefully find a way to move forward, one way or another.
