Review – Swept by Alyssa Turner

Even a Master needs a savior...or two.

Successful engineering executive, Jack Rothman thought he was finally free to be the Dom he was meant to become. His submissives, Rory Campbell and Spencer Hartley are soon to be married, and his place as their Dominant is unshakable. Then Jack loses the one thing a Dom requires…control over his life.

Rory can’t wait to get married, but she can’t marry both of her men—not in the eyes of the law or her overbearing, critical parents. She must find the courage to tell her parents the truth about her poly relationship, despite the sudden absence of her Dominant’s strength. If she wants the happily-ever-after wedding she’s always dreamed of, she’ll have to learn to fight for it on her own.

Spencer knows that lies are a poison that destroys from within. Now that he’s come to terms with his bisexuality he’s ready to settle down with the woman he loves and the man he can’t live without. Only the future that seemed so bright is in danger of being swept out of his hands. He’s watching his fiancée fall apart, his Dom fade away and there’s nothing he can do about it…or is there?

I have to admit that I read this installment before I knew that this was a follow up to Polished. As far as I’m concerned, this totally worked as a standalone. The Author did a very good job of “cluing” me in on each character’s past as well as who they were as individuals. Now that I’ve admitted to that, lets get down to the review, shall we?

This is the first MFM read that I’ve read where there is one true Dom with two submissives (one female/one male). Usually both males are the Dom over a female Sub. What a breathe of fresh air. It was so nice to read about a submissive male who is bisexual and becoming comfortable within his own skin. Here’s the twist that I loved most about this. Both submissives started out with just each other (read Polished), bringing the Dom in to the relationship. Although both submissives love each other beyond belief, they were missing something in their relationship, which the Dom has been able to provide.

Ok, so all of the above you basically get from Polished and a recap within this read. Here’s where the story becomes even more interesting. Jack, the Dom, is the president of a successful engineering company his father founded, but he hasn’t been able to close a deal in months. He’s starting to consider bankruptcy along with other options when he’s given an offer “he can’t refuse” from the Russian mob. Seriously, he literally can’t refuse the offer. This causes a ridiculous amount of stress, which trickles in to his relationship with Rory and Spencer, his Subs.

While Rory and Spencer are planning their wedding, it becomes apparent that there is something wrong with Jack. He stopped being the Dom in the relationship and even when they try to get him to engage in scenes, he just can’t focus. Bad timing to say the least considering Rory “needs” his Dom abilities to help keep her from losing her poo. Can Spencer step in as the Dom she needs in order to keep her sane? Will Jack pull himself together long enough to realize that all he needs is right in front of him?

Awesome story. Awesome lessons to be learned all the way around. I would absolutely continue this story if the author decides to write another installation…maybe the next triad (hint hint).
