Review – This Moody Bastard (Suncoast Society) by Tymber Dalton

Overall, a much lighter book, and one that provides relief from some of the emotional angst of the other books in the series. ~ Shadow, Guilty Pleasures

Another holiday, another Suncoast Society party. But what’s troubling Cali, Sean, and Max? Can a kinky Easter egg hunt snap them out of it? As their friends gather once more, the triad puts on a united front and a happy face. While they remember to count their blessings, will the future finally come into clear focus?

Unicorn photo shoots, rainbow rope, and getting their cat, Baxter, stoned on catnip are all on the agenda. It doesn’t hurt that they finally get to see karma in all its splendid glory giving them the good kind of cosmic payback for a change.

They know they’re lucky. Now, all they have to do is keep reminding themselves of that fact.

Note: This book contains double penetration.

This book is a direct sequel to Happy Spank Patrick’s Day, Kinko de Mayo, and Crafty Bastards.

The other books in the Suncoast Series are standalone works, but are best read in the following order to reduce spoilers:
Safe Harbor Cardinal’s Rule Domme by Default The Reluctant Dom The Denim Dom Pinch Me Broken Toy A Clean Sweep A Roll of the Dice His Canvas A Lovely Shade of Ouch Crafty Bastards A Merry Little Kinkmas Sapiosexual A Very Kinky Valentine’s Day Things Made Right Click Spank or Treat A Turn of the Screwed Chains Kinko de Mayo Broken Arrow Out of the Spotlight Friends Like These Vicious Carousel Hot Sauce Open Doors One Ring Vulnerable The Strength of the Pack Initiative Impact Liability Switchy Rhymes With Orange Beware Falling Ice Beware Falling Rocks Dangerous Curves Ahead Two Against Nature Home at Last A Kinkmas Carol Ask DNA Time Out of Mind Happy Valenkink’s Day Splendid Isolation Similar to Rain Happy Spank Patrick’s Day Fire in the Hole Pretzel Logic This Moody Bastard Walk Between the Raindrops Rub Me Raw (Coming 6/12/2017) Any World That I’m Welcome To (Coming 6/23/2017) Heartache Spoken Here (Coming July 10, 2017)

This is almost a short story, a sequel to Crafty Bastards, where we visit Cali, Sean and Max again. Sean and Max took Cali in after her sorry ex dumped her and left her penniless and a fire left her homeless. The two men have their own history and both back stories are explained in this novella. This is important, because Karma makes a delightful appearance and is unappreciated if the reader doesn’t know the background.

As we start off this book, Cali, Sean and Max have decided against ever having children and the two men are scheduled for vasectomies. But the trio seems to be struggling with the decision, especially in light of the disasters that have befallen some of their friends. All three go through stages of being moody as they contemplate the future, Can a kinky Easter party, complete with egg hunt, help them realize their good fortune.

This felt more like a stop gap to catch us up on the Suncoast Society rather than a complete book. It lacked the suspense and the edge of some of the other books in the series, but was still a pleasant read, with well drawn, likable characters, and some really hot sex, including mild BDSM.

We also get to reconnect with a lot of the characters from earlier books, both older and newer reads. The action of this one takes place concurrently with Pretzel Logic, the book about Brita and Ethan that was released at approximately the same time. There is also some great joy in watching Karma in action for both Cali’s ex and the woman who burned Sean and Max.

Overall, a much lighter book, and one that provides relief from some of the emotional angst of the other books in the series.
