3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty much the same pattern/world as Abel's novels, but with a differently named character.
I initially thought that the author might be offering a 'sweeter' version of Abel's tale, but it's clear that this is not the case. However, the tales aren't dissimilar, as they feature the same club, both Abel and Caleb (yup, even the names are a play on each other, LOL!) are dancers, we get to see the same side characters (including Horatio who seems to have very...

This review is from: When Worlds Collide (Phoenix Club Book 4) (Kindle Edition)
I initially thought that the author might be offering a 'sweeter' version of Abel's tale, but it's clear that this is not the case. However, the tales aren't dissimilar, as they feature the same club, both Abel and Caleb (yup, even the names are a play on each other, LOL!) are dancers, we get to see the same side characters (including Horatio who seems to have very conveniently forgotten his obsession with Abel and is now back after his ex, Max), and similar scenes of personal trauma and brutal sex (which takes place with someone other than the other lead).

Yes, the sex between the leads is hot, but please Ms Bishop, these tales are set in 2014 and having unsafe sex, especially with Caleb's work situation on top, is not realistic. That not one of the males even thinks about safe sex, even in passing, and that not one of them uses lube, is asking readers to suspend disbelief too much. And, passion aside, sex in a public pool is not sexy, and Caleb allowing a client to 'release' all over his ...orifices...is pretty dangerous and reckless, and shows a lack of consideration for Caleb's lover, and a lack of self-esteem in Caleb himself (who is working at the club for a pretty selfless reason, so he's not lacking in courage or loyalty, just, seemingly, common sense at times).

I have gone on to buy the rest in the series, and they are worth a read, but they're not dissimilar in principle and execution to Abel's tale. I'm sort of getting the 'read that, seen that, been there' vibe...which will probably continue with Dane's tale, as at the very end of the trilogy, we get introduced to yet another Abel/Caleb type of character.
