    1. Vivian on said:

      Not what I was expecting, and more than a little disappointed.A huge problem with the story is that the circumstances of it being the future or AU is not clearly delineated when you start. All of a sudden, getting quips about Mars' colonies 70% through the story is disconcerting. All the technology is contemporary and there are no obvious identifiers that this is anything but a contemporary novel.The gender politics speak is way too much, over-the-top and off-putting, an inelegant crash course i [...]

      4.5 starsOK, are you ready for this gigantic mind-fuck?It's several decades in the future and BDSM clubs have graduated from your standard safe/sane/consensual control types to what are called shade clubs. There are no safe words in shade clubs. There is no one monitoring play to make sure things stay safe, sane and consensual. It's anything goes and only the riskiest of risk takers need apply. They are legal, but you leave your training wheels at the door. Edge play is the standard.Police offic [...]

      While this was not the book for me, Gigi's lovely review offers an alternative viewpoint, as does Reflection's thoughtful review. (view spoiler)[Unfortunately, this was a disappointing offering from Gala. The characterization was flat, emotionally removed, and inconsistent. Important scenes were glossed over, and other aspects of the plot took 2 or 3 scenes to develop where one should have sufficed. The BDSM was wildly dissatisfying - utterly bland and ordinary. The psychological conditioning sh [...]

      An idealistic sub going undercover in a shade club--a D/s club that caters to edge play and all the darker forms of domination. What could go wrong there? Add in potential backstabbing and organized crime, drop this into a near-future set twenty or thirty years from now and see how Ollie handles his latest case. If you have a question, you know you can always ask.

      I read some of the early reviews of Without a Net and was more than a little trepidatious about charging in. Considering I've publicly declared my love for LG multiple times it was a little panic inducing to consider the possibility that I might have to give a less favorable review.Thankfully, *manic laugh* that didn't happen!Initially there was quite a bit of gender and sexuality labeling which filled me with dread. I believe I've made my feels known on the whole labeling thing, but I feel like [...]

    6. Reflection on said:

      *3.5 stars rounded down, because I'm feeling pickyThis story has given me some pause for thought, and not only because the content is quite harsh with several unexpected twists and turns that kept me wondering what might happen next.I found myself with an urge to read something deliciously dark and twisted and if it had guys in bondage and dubious consent, then so much the better. Without a Net seems flawed just like its protagonists. If they were finally able to overlook each other's faults in [...]

      More than € 7,- on Kobo. Which is twice as much as, for example, A Fashionable Indulgence. Perhaps I'll wait for a bunch of reviews first

      Overall book rating: 4.25Audio Book: N/ABook Cover: 4The closest thing in MM genre I’ve ever got to Tears of Tess by Pepper Winters. So this made me do a happy dance.I know I know, it’s really not the same thing at all (for those who did read Monsters in the Dark series) but I’ve been looking for anything remotely touching the feel or theme of that series and this was it for me. If there is something closer to it out there you know of PLEASE let me know!So I’m sort of on a Lyn Gala high [...]

      4.5 star review by The Blogger Girls.This was recommended to me by a friend who knows how much I love the dark, edgy reads. I was not disappointed.Ollie is in a bit of a predicament. He’s in a job where he feels he is being targeted by his superiors and generally not getting the backup he needs. When another superior learns about this, he convinces Ollie to go undercover in the darker BDSM club scene, known as shade clubs, in a sort of dual sting operation. One, to catch the men responsible fo [...]

    10. Kristan on said:

      Hells yeah! Finished the book with 20 minutes to spare!Loved Ollie's kinks and his ability to speak his mind and stand up for himself. Didn't love the disconnect in the story once the sting went down. I'm going to attribute that to the author being uncomfortable writing action. Maybe? *shrugs*Kinda wondering why Milan's motivations still feel flimsy and out of left field.Review to come.

    11. Sandi ♥'s way too many M/M books on said:

      I'm torn on this ones rating. I disliked quite a bit and was confused in the beginning even in the middle, then it got way better. I totally didn't connect to Ollie at all I did like Travis but something in this story just didn't sit right for me.

    12. Joseph Tonlet on said:

      Jeezus! I L-O-V-E-D this book. Give me a story where the sub is a healthy, whole, sane, no holds barred, balls to the wall, kickass character and I'll effin' swoon with joy, lust, and gratitude every time! So damn enjoyable!

    13. Amy on said:

      This is not a romance. My bad. I should have read the book summary more closely. Very well written, just not my kind of story :(

    14. Dre on said:

      This wasn't at all what I expected, so I guess that's on me. The BDSM scenes didn't push the envelope as much as I thought they would, and I didn't find the scenes to be hot. I didn't feel any connection or chemistry between the MCs, and I thought the whole investigation part of the story sort of overshadowed the romance/relationship building aspect of the story, and I found it all to be a bit cheesy. I typically have trouble with romance and investigation/mystery type of stories, so again, it's [...]

    15. Trix on said:

      This started strong then fizzled out.That is pretty much my review in a nutshell. I had started this with high expectations and the first few dozen pages seemed to deliver a gritty BDSM scene. I was cringing with every new discovery Oliver made in that shade clubs. I was mentally preparing myself to discover new sides to the BDSM lifestyle but determined to bear through it to the end.But after a couple of (admittedly strong) scenes, the pacing changes and things are way lighter and easier for ou [...]

    16. Joanne on said:

      This was fabulous. It was dark and edgy, a real mind blower. I loved Ollie and Travis and even Milan. This is more than just a BDSM story, it's a hard hitting detective novel with more twists than a ballon blowing in the wind. It kept me on the edge of my seat and I couldn't put it down.

    17. Theresa on said:

      I wanted to read this book to see what all of the hoopla was about when it was released. I was very disappointed. The book was all over the place in a bad way, almost spastic. It was as though the author couldn't make up her mind about what she wanted to focus on. The AU world building was so sparse and underwhelming it was irritating.The main story line was police corruption and an undercover detective who got caught up in the power play. Ollie was a strong character who went through a self dis [...]

    18. Amanda on said:

      Without a Net was absolutely amazing! Ollie finds himself in a tough spot. Lusting after an older married neighbor, discriminating shits for peers at work, and a bogus undercover op set up by his boss. I just gets worse when he gets caught up in the op and kidnapped. I got my mind blown a few times with the turn of events and some of the stuff Ollie went through. And I actually asked myself "what the fuck did I just read?!?" a dozen times. Ollie found he was more shade than he had originally tho [...]

    19. Ruth on said:

      I guess whether you enjoy this work depends on several things.Are you looking for a strong plot with strong characters and rich world-building?If yes, stay away from this work. The world-building is clumsy in that I never really understood how far into the future they were supposed to be, and the entire mystery/suspense plot about what's going on in the police department was fairly flimsy, IMO. I'm still not convinced that Ollie's emphasizing cis vs not-cis is natural to a character who is, I gu [...]

    20. Natalie on said:

      I liked itThis was an AU or futuristic story. I lean towards futuristic because of details in the story. When the Captain was using the surface of his desk, I knew it wasn't contemporary. Then when they talked about people's gender and sexuality, it was clear that it was a in a time when self determination of gender was the norm. It also referred to BDSM as a regular activity for many. This wasn't as edgy as I thought it would be. There was a little shown with other characters, but not much at a [...]

    21. JD on said:

      Rounded up to 3 stars. I really wanted to love this one ; unfortunately I didn't :( While it's obvious this is a talented author as her writing flows and it is an interesting story with somewhat of a futuristic look at BDSm with the Shade Clubs as they have an "anything goes" concept- I just couldn't connect to the characters or the storyline. It looked to be going the way of "The Flesh Cartel" ( now that is a dark and depraved series that I loved but was difficult to read) but didn't nearly get [...]

    22. Purplegirl on said:

      I enjoyed this book. I usually don't like books that take place in the future or the past but this one was not so off the wall when talking of the future. I really was hoping that the book continued with the "harder" type BDSM play but in the middle there was a change. The story warranted the change but I just wanted things to keep me squirming like the punishment scene. Overall, a solid three stars. I liked all the characters and the story.

    23. Susan on said:

      Fascinating romanceThis is a fascinating romance. I found myself captivated from page one and eagerly devoured this story. Well-written with a wonderful blend of BDSM, drama, action and romance! I am now a huge fan of this amazing author.

    24. Juli on said:

      my heart was beating so hard at the end of chapter 7 I had to set it aside for a bit. Of course, I couldn't stop thinking about it during that time, had to get back to it to see how it turned out.

    25. ConM on said:

      I liked this, but did not love.I felt detached from Ollie, and he was the character I felt closest too.And the BDSM felt flat.

    26. Caroline Brand on said:

      REVIEWED FOR PRISM BOOK ALLIANCEIf you are looking for something dark that will mess up your mind then this may be just the book for you.In this futuristic story BDSM is part of the norm but there are different levels of Dominance and Submission. For those just looking to play you can go to one of the control clubs. For those looking for something with more risk, something darker you can to a Shade club and give up everything including your safe word.Ollie is a cop who believes in the letter of [...]

    27. Christi Snow on said:

      My Review:Wow, this is one powerful, dark, and surprisingly touching erotic story. Noteis story takes place sometime in the future in a world that 's almost identical to ours I would guess it's only 30-40 years in the future. It's just enough so that the author could take some artistic license with sexual norms, but still current enough that the story does NOT feel like science fiction. Ollie is a gay cop working in a somewhat intolerant work environment. It's not blatant, but there are certain [...]

      **I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.**I debated a long time how to rate this one. I am a fan of dark reads and have no problem with that kind of content, the rape, kidnapping etc, my issue was more with the flow and the connection to the characters of the story. The first chapter felt more like a lesson in sexual choice/gender with all of the gender terminology. I assumed at one point a gender fluid or even transgender character but there was not. I didn't f [...]
