Kimber’s Review – Impact (Buckin’ Bull Riders #1) by Cassandra Carr

Visit Cassandra Carr


Professional bull rider Conner Raub hides a secret from the world. He’s a Dom. When he meets a submissive on tour who pulls at his Dom tendencies, he fights to deny his true self, believing his colleagues will condemn his lifestyle.

Jessica Talbot is new to the BDSM scene and the bull riding tour, but after seeing Conner come to the aid of a submissive being mistreated in a club, she sets out to have him for her own. After their first night together she asks him to train her to submit and he refuses, afraid to mix business with pleasure. But Jessica isn’t deterred. She’ll do whatever it takes to make him realize he can have it all—a career, true love, and the BDSM lifestyle he craves.

Bull Rider and BDSM, I was already there. When I read the synopsis for Impact I jumped at the chance to read and write a review and I could not be more excited to confess – I loved every sexy bit of it – from start to finish.

Although the story was steamy, fun, along with exciting; the characters are what drew me in and held on tight. The author did such an excellent job with the development, I thought I was Jess. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt like I was her, watching Conner from afar in that club the first night, wanting it to me he was playing with. From the moment he stepped on the page, he was commanding and intense. He had such a presence, there was never any doubt he was a dominant male. Both main characters are very likable which adds to the enjoyment because you find yourself pulling for them as a couple. Conner didn’t think he was ready for any kind of a relationship and certainly knew he couldn’t play D/s with Jess since she worked on the tour. Once Jess wore him down and talked him into teaching her how to be a sub, we saw some BDSM, which could be intense at times, but that was just Conner. He was extremely intense and passionate, but a sweetheart at the same time. I think the quality I like most about him was his protectiveness, not just for Jess but for all women. The fact he had no intentions of being in a relationship made me laugh when he ultimately fell for her–hitting him like a ton of bricks because he wasn’t looking for it or expecting it and didn’t want it. Aren’t those the most fun to watch fall? She just managed to get under his skin in a good way and captured his heart.

Yes, this is an erotic romance, but it’s one of the best written books I’ve read in a while. You know it’s a good book when the author can paint that picture for you and you feel like you are there experiencing it.

This is a scorcher and the lovin’ is explosive, so prepare to either attack the SO or stock up on the batteries.

I felt the rodeo scenes were authentic including some pretty exciting bull riding, and her knowledge of BDSM was well researched and accurately portrayed. Cassandra Carr is a new author for me and has been added to my auto-buy list. I read on her website the next book in the series which will center on Conner’s friend and traveling partner, Brady, and will release late this spring.

If you like off the charts sexy cowboys, a little dip into the BDSM scene, and plenty of plot, you will grab your eReader and purchase for download now.

Enjoy everyone!

Kimber gives IMPACT a strong, solid 4.5
