Pup (Guards of Folsom, #1) - S.J.D. Peterson I generally liked the characters but there was such a clinical feel to the book, as Tackett worked with Micah on his issues, that they seemed to lack romance. And I was disconnected from Micah. Even though I don't like pain, I can usually connect enough with a submissive character that I can understand their need for pain and why/how they get off on it. Not so in this case.
