Trailer ☆ Jacks Back (Indiscreet, #2) PDF by à A.C. Katt Jim s story of growth from adversity Jim seems to have been badly treated throughout his previous relationships, and Reed continues this theme, throwing him over after 3 years for an ex Reed comes over as self centred, and sad too, but obviously its not the whole story I did like that Bear was supportive of Jim, not automatically siding with his fellow Dom Jim s story of growth continues whilst Reed s life is going downhill fast And Caleb, vibes from the start Jim also has his secrets and I d have loved on this part of his history.
I liked all the characterisation but felt the dialogues were a bit off at times what they would say in a very proper world rather than the real world And if I was Jim I d have made Reed s grovelling much harder I enjoyed it, good for when you need a feel good read.

com Jim loves his Master Reed and is making a wonderful anniversary cake to mark their third anniversary, but he is scared to death because Reed didn t come home the night before and Jack s back Brian and Bear from A Matter of Trusthelp Jim to pick up the pieces of his life and start afresh, but just when his life is looking up and a new man walks into his life Reed decides that he might have made a mistake This is a story that has a few surprises in store for us, but is disappointing if you were expecting BDSM Jim has been Reed s sub for three years and he thought that everything was nearly perfect between them, but when Jack, Reed s ex, comes back to town Jim is dumped and slowly begins to rebuild his life, when he meets Caleb he thinks that he just might have struck gold, but it isn t long before a shadow hangs over them and Jim begins to have his doubts Reed has a past that haunts him and he truly believes that Jack is the only one who can accept him the way he is, but he begins to think he has made a mistake and he realises what he threw away when he let Jim go Jim is the character to watch in this story as he has a lot hidden up his sleeve and he is far from the twink we first imagine him to be Reed is a character that you hate and then warm up to, as you learn just what in his past haunts him, you still find it hard to forgive his treatment of the wonderful Jim, but you begin to understand what drives him The storyline is interesting with the mysterious Caleb and his overpowering nature and Bear and Brian are wonderful friends to Jim, the only disappointment that I truly had was there was no BDSM or anything like that really, it was mainly focused on Jim s new man and on Reed s handling of his past.
I will recommend this if you love complex men and their emotional difficulties, mysterious dangerous men, hidden depth s, admitting your faults and finding forgiveness and love.

Great story with lots of drama I started out ready to deck Reed for his handling of everything and how stupid he seems But he final takes steps to move things along in his own life and to get himself in a better space And when Jim needs him he s ready to be there for him Of course Jim has his own secrets he s been keeping as well.
So when I started this I had the idea the hardest thing for me to deal with and what would piss me off the most was Reed cheating on, dumping, and then wanting to get back together with Jim Sadly, by the end of the book that wasn t even on my radar any Luckily I am writing this a few weeks after reading the book so most of the vitriol has dried up I think Let me start with the good Weirdly enough I can actually pick out some good here Weird because even when I love a book I have an extremely hard time pointing out why, and when I don t like a book I tend to not see anything other than what I disliked After Reed dumps Jim we spend a little time watching Jim pull himself together and move on with his life This was honestly my favorite part of the book and I really think I would have liked to see Jim stick to it and find someone who really deserved him, but he ends up back with Reed sigh Which brings me to the second good thing I can only think of one book that I have read and liked where one MC cheated on the other The author has to give me some sort of reasoning on the cheater s part that will allow me to forgive him and want the other MC to forgive him That is not to say that I think there is a good excuse, but, such as in this case, where Reed is messed up because of something from his past, I am willing to forgive When there is cheating just because someone is incapable of keeping it in their pantsthat loses all respect I have for that person If you can t control yourself then you shouldn t be out with the rest of society rolls eyes On the other side of that, though, when Reed tells Jim his deep dark secret it is kind ofdone in a very blas manner It was way too casual on both their parts Then Jim has to expose his dark secret Gasp He was a Ranger and now that Reed knows he won t want him Cripes, if the jerk is going to toss you aside for something like that then dump his ass now slams head into wall in an effort to make sense of it What the hell is there to be ashamed of I am guessing it was some sort of OMG a sub can t be a Ranger but that seems an awful lot like you are trying to say that subs are weak and incapable of doing anything but depending on someone else That bothered me a lot When he is with Reed, Jim acts much flamboyant but at the same time very passive and I mean passive, not submissive But when he and Reed break up, he isn t like that at all There is nothing wrong with his character being flamboyant and or passive, but it felt like he was doing it because of for Reed That bugged me Probably just the way I was interpreting it, but still.
Now the bad There is some seriously bad dialogue in here Seriously Then we have Caleb the creeper Bear thinks Caleb might be a stalker or serial killerbut they do absolutely NOTHING about it speechless Supposedly they can t afford to have Caleb or Jim watched around the clock, yet at the end of the book Bear is all, We have enough money to keep the evidence from getting buried or lost dumbfounded I m not all up on my security private investigator bribe prices but it seems to me that it would probably cost a lot to keep evidence against someone from a rich and prominent family from disappearing than it would to hire someone to watch them all night But what do I know Still, just the way Bear s whole life is described in the first bookI think he has enough money But where it really fell apart for me is when Reed drugs Jim to keep him safe then takes him to a secluded place What is safe about any of that You don t roofie your lover, for the love ofjust no What would even make you think that is acceptable The premise is that Jim just wouldn t listen to them and be safe, but none of them actually tried to talk to him about it They just drugged him with, if I remember correctly, something Reed had confiscated from someone at the club I justithowthere are just NO words for this Lastly, the excessive use of the word baby I don t mind it as an endearment I know some people despise it, but I actually like it But any endearment can be overused Names can be overused I don t know anyone who has to use the other person s name in every sentence in real life, so why do people do that in books confused Anyhow So there were parts I liked, and details I liked, but they were a bit outweighed by the things that bugged me I m sort of coming to the conclusion that I just don t like the way this author presents her Doms It just doesn t work with my perceptions interpretations whatever Mostly I m just a grumpy badger sigh EnjoyedI really did enjoy this story Especially Reed s character i thought he was wonderful However, I really didn t think Jim was worthy of his love I really wished the author had wrote him likeable but i just couldn t take to him Think Reed deserved Reed obviously gets into some trouble with the new love in his life But he is a strong character and with the love and support of his best friends, he faces the challenges ahead of him Jim finally realises that Jack will never stay and decides to try and win Reed s love againugh I think he should have suffered a bit tbh.
It s a really good story though, and I m glad it end with a HEA.
I would highly recommend.
I like it.
Bear s still nuts yet actually makes some good sense a few times and of course I can t like Reed although I ll give him that his deeper reasons for being a jerk are as horrid as it gets , but Jim is pretty cool how is it even possible to flounce while sitting in a car and overall the writing feels consistent and less over the top.
Sure, there are blips such as the subs being sent out of the room and Bear then addressing Brian But that stuff can slip by, I guess It s certainly not game breaking Interesting, too, are the grammatical and homophone errors which I wouldn t expect from someone with that sort of vocabulary I definitely see traces of the sort of material wish fulfilment you d expect from Kindle Alexander who incidentally also had a character named Reed whom I loathed , plus the proclamations of love at the end do feel rather on the psychotically destructive side.
I suppose I should say that this isn t my usual type of book stylistically and so on , but for some reason I did enjoy it Maybe this is largely thanks to Jim as a character and the improvements overall compared to the first book in this series.
I rate this a three, which is highly dependent on context.
I started reading this at 2am when I had insomnia I wanted a book that was not gripping in the least, so that the instant I felt sleepy I could put it down and try to recapture sweet slumber For this very specific purpose, I enjoyed this book.
Nothing made me hate it to a degree that excited passion It was entirely bland, and therefore somewhat soothing in the deep of the night.
Sadly I was still awake at 4am and I started reading book 1 in the series This was my greatest mistake to date for 2013 Please learn from my error.
5 stars rounded up Really just disliked Reed for most of the book And was waaaay too sappy when the MC s got back together Still kept me turning the pages though, so I ll probably buy the next book if the series continues.
