Switch It Up

If you are looking for... oh god I don't know. I don't know how to describe this book. Just know it made ME blush and you know me. Ahem.

Switch It Up - Sara Brookes
Welcome to Noble House, Where Your Passion is Our Pleasure, and Someone is Always Watching…

Hacker Madeline Zane gets off crossing lines. So when she discovers security flaws in the Noble House website, she thinks nothing of showing up at the door of the hybrid fetish club and demanding an audience with the owner. Especially after watching an intense online scene of the notorious Dom bringing a submissive to her knees.

Kochran Duke is weary of always being in control, but meeting Maddy rekindles his pleasure in what had become strictly business. And instead of making him jealous, seeing her submit to his old friend Ezra has him aching for something he didn’t even know he was searching for.

The kind of heartbreak Ezra’s lived through changes a man. Maddy makes him crave a life he thought he’d put behind him for good. Watching her with Kochran only fuels his desires, rousing the caged beast within.

Fortunately at Noble House, virtually any fantasy can become reality. 

This book introduces us to Noble House, basically a place to go and have literally any fantasy fulfilled. It's run by Kochran Duke, always in charge at Noble House but outside of it his life feels like it's spiraling out of control. We have Ezra who was in a triad marriage that went to hell once his wife died and his husband left him to grieve on his own, Ezra hasn't been the same since.

Then we have Madeline (Maddy) who is a computer geek to the fullest who decides to exploit their website but when that goes bad for her she goes to them directly to get it fixed. Because she was able to hack it, she gets to help fix it or else they go to the Feds because she technically broke a whole slew of laws. Soon enough though, Maddy's curiosity gets the best of her and she finds herself in the middle of same game (you could call it)  between Ezra and Kochran but she isn't complaining because all of her fantasies are being checked off like a bucket list.

Things you should know: if you felt dirty after reading Fifty Shades, this is not the book for you.  This takes BDSM to the next level. If you are not a fan on man on man action, this is not the book for you. Admittedly that's not my jam and I did not read the description carefully enough so that was kind of uneasy for even me. Some of the bondage/BDSM scenes were a bit much for me and it reminded me of a book called The Secret Life of a Submissive, a lot of the scenes gave me the same icky feel. I think if you are a fan of BDSM and have ever considered a threesome, this book is going to be right up your alley.

Some parts of it seemed tedious to read and I could have knocked a solid 100 pages out of it but I was still able to get through it in a weekend. Definitely not a book you want to leave laying around on your dining room table where your pre-teen daughter is. You might have to explain stuff that you aren't ready to.

Overall I'm giving this one 3/5 stars. It wasn't terrible and I'd be interested in reading more from this author, particularly more in the Noble House Kink series. I'm knocking it down because guy on guy isn't my thing.
