Book Review: Shut Out

SHUT OUT by Liz Crowe: A submissive once, a submissive forever?

A man on the run from the only life he’s ever known, Brody Vaughn is poised to accept the Black Jack Gentleman’s newly vacant goalkeeper’s position. It’s a desperate move, but one he must take to regain his emotional equilibrium. Reeling from his Mistress’s rejection and on the ragged edge of a total breakdown, he arrives in Detroit. Numb with thinly veiled grief, he walks into the club’s front office completely unaware that an encounter with true destiny awaits him.

Sophie Harrison has seen it all--as Domme, sub, and victim. Now that her complicated circumstances have landed her as legal counsel for the expansion Black Jacks team, she holds herself aloof in body and spirit. Nothing and no one gets past her fiercely guarded walls. Until the day she looks up to greet the new goalie standing in her doorway, his raw combination of vulnerability and strength making her breathless.

Two people, horribly scarred by the excesses of the BDSM lifestyle and hiding from their true selves, meet across a desk over a simple contract. All bets are off.

AL's thoughts: Shut out? More like shut up! The third book in the Blackjack Gentlemen’s series does not disappoint. Ms. Crowe brings back a character from the Stewart Realty series, Sophie Harrison, and has placed her front and center, and straight in the path of sexy, younger Brody Vaughn, the teams new hot shot goalie. Brody shares deep, dark secrets that Sophie recognizes from her own past. When Brody encounters Sophie at her second career as a dominatrix-for-hire, the sparks fly. Sophie helps Brody deal with his demons, and the two fall in love. But Brody’s first love is the game; and he plays all in. After a head injury that leaves him with memory loss, Sophie is forced to deal with life on her own, without the love of her life.

Liz Crowe once again puts her hand in the reader’s chest, and rips out the heart. My heart pounded from the minute I started reading this book, and was still pounding well after I had finished it.
