Release Blitz Review: Sub Mission by T. S. McKinney

Sub Mission
by T.S. McKinney
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: June 7, 2018

With subs being murdered at a Miami BDSM club, experienced dominant Agent Seth Wilkinson must find his own submissive to “entice” a killer. When he’s paired with Agent Baker Daley he wonders just how much a straight man can fake.

Baker Daley knows he can “play the part”; he just needs a chance to prove it to Wilkinson. Being a straight man should have no bearing when his Domme has trained him well in the practice and lifestyle of submission. After all, this is just a job, right?

One scene. One intuitive Dom. One sassy sub. The game is afoot…in more ways than one.

As passions ignite and both men grapple with their internal desires, the mission begins to heat up. In a race against time, confusion and danger, they may just discover the greatest threat is to their hearts.

This is not my first BDSM rodeo with TS McKinney and honestly this author is an expert when it comes to this subgenre. Sub Mission is very much a BDSM and romance focus story rather than a suspense one. Although from the blurb, it was explained that the reason Seth and Baker got together is for a mission, the job itself was relegated to the backseat. That's not to say the plot isn't engaging because Seth and Baker's dynamic is the highlight of the story.

Both heroes are very personable and likeable after the initial awkward meeting. Baker is the straight guy who only had Domme but is willing to work with a Dom for the assignment. Baker is my favourite kind of sub, the one who loves to submit but also possess a mean backbone, a sassy mouth and manage to keep his Dom on his toes. Seth is the Dom, alpha and stoic at first glance, but inside lives a gooey heart that just loves his new sub and will everything to protect him. I like how he pushed Baker's limit by introducing him to new toys and gay sex, but at the same time giving Baker's absolute freedom to back out.

As with any D/s dynamic, things can be intense especially in the playroom and most of the first half of the book was dedicated to Seth exploring Baker's like and dislike. However, my favourite moments their back and forth banter. Yes, Seth is the one dishing out the punishment, but Baker gave as good as he gets at least verbally. The second half of the story contained less scene and more relationship issue. Whereby Baker had to admit that he might be gay and falling for a man and Seth trying to act cool and detached, but at the same time failing at it. Seeing them working out their feelings was very heartfelt and I'm glad to see them coming together at the end.

T.S. McKinney lives in East Tennessee with her high school sweetheart/husband and all the countless dogs she picks up from deserted country roads. Her professional career has been in business but her heart has always belonged to the fantasy world found in books.

Creating wicked worlds where one can meet the perfect hero – and then do anything to him that you want – has been a hobby that has brought her plenty of hours of fun and naughty entertainment.
When not working, reading, or writing, she loves to spend time with my family and forcing them (because they don’t really have another choice) to allow me to redecorate their houses…and listen to my naughty…sometimes sadistic stories.
