Spare the Rod

Spare the Rod

Gray Andino is a Denver cop with a pain kink and a history of falling in love with the wrong people. He’s jealous of his friends’ newfound happiness, but with a brain that won’t shut up and a need to argue everything, finding his own soul mate seems impossible, so he settles for meaningless sex and doling out pain with willing subs.

Subs like Avery Barron.

When Avery asks to stay with Gray for a few weeks, Gray reluctantly agrees. Avery may be the perfect sub, but as an accidental roommate, he sucks. The younger child of rich, indulgent parents, Avery is an entitled slob with a disdain for rules, a lack of ambition, and an obsession with social media. Gray tolerates his presence, but when Avery breaks one of Gray’s ground rules, he punishes him and takes away his phone.

Deprived of his usual echo chamber, Avery feels lost until he discovers a local Tap House, a piano, and his buried love of music. The more Avery plays, the more the community around him blossoms. For the first time in his life, Avery has a purpose and goals for the future. But the thing he longs for most -- Gray’s love and respect -- may be forever out of reach.

    2.5 “what the hell?” starsI think the word I’m trying to find here is....disappointing. There was just so much standing on the soap-box that, for me, the romance fell by the way side. I did enjo...

    DNF at 24%. Sorry, little book. It's not that I disagree with the message of the book. I had my fair share of encounters with woker-than-thou assholes exactly like Avery over the last few weeks. What ...

    I was looking forward to this book and I’m so disappointed. The romance was pretty solid for most of the book, but it was overwhelmed by a series of political harangues. Sexton is wildly frustrated ...

    I had a long list of things I wanted to say, instead I'm keeping it short.This is a good book. It's just not romance. It's more of a study. With romantic and BDSM elements thrown in. I agreed with eve...

    I enjoyed elements of this story but I didn’t like the political banter- it was way too much and dominated the story. I understand there was a purpose in using this information to support Greys char...

    I was waiting very impatiently for this one to drop, so it's probably inevitable that I found it disappointing.As a pragmatic progressive, the politics in this book drove me crazy. It seemed to sugges...
