When Gladiator Inc, an adult toy company expands their market to familiarize the ‘vanilla’ world with the elements of BDSM, the result is a pay-per-view reality show with video feeds streamed live to subscribers. The show, Dom Wars, is a competition to determine the Top Dom that will become the spokesperson for the company. The contestants all wear cameras to film every moment and angle of the competition, while they complete various challenges to determine who has ultimately Dominated various elements of themselves. The hero and heroine of the series, Lucian Bane and Tara Reese, have barely made it into the Sixth and Final Round of Dom Wars. This week-long Survival Round will determine the Top Dom, once and for all. The contestants are taken to an uninhabited island, where they will have to cross formidable jungle terrain. First Dom to reach the boat anchored on the other side of the island wins the million dollars and the title. Seems simple. Except Lucian’s old adversary, the Sadist Jase Duff from Round One, has been tasked with making sure none of the five teams make it to the boat. If he is successful, he wins the prize, only it's not money that Jase Duff cares about, its revenge on Lucian and Tara. And his sadistic need to inflict pain makes it game on.
In Dom Wars Rounds 1 through 5, we got to meet an eclectic ensemble of characters. Some of them, like Lucian, Tara, and Steve, have been central to the ongoing story. Others, like Betty, don’t make return appearances but can’t be omitted from the experience that is Dom Wars. Nothing in the first rounds can really prepare you for the Final Round, however.
Jase Duff, the sadist from Round 1 is back ~ and he’s lost his cotton picking mind. The best way to describe what goes down is to imagine Catching Fire with lots of sex. At times, in fact, the sex seemed almost gratuitous given the intensity of the situations Lucian, Tara, Preacher, and Becca find themselves in. At the same time, one has to wonder if you wouldn’t do the same in their shoes; i.e. trapped on an island with a mad man and the realization that you’re no longer in a game of fame and fortune, but in a fight for your life. In a case of not knowing when the love of your life might suddenly be gone, would you take advantage of every opportunity, no matter how awkward, to savor those last desperate acts of intimacy?
A fast-paced, breath-holding, page turner to be sure. Bane and Lowe have teamed up to close this series with a tearful bang. If you’ve been waiting to start, go ahead and dive in. You will laugh, you will get turned on, you might even cry . . . one thing is certain, you won’t regret giving it a shot.
*Disclaimer: I was given an advance copy by the authors in exchange for an honest review. It is my own issues with editing, and lack of resolution with Danielle, that held me back from giving this installment five stars.
About the Authors:
My name is Lucian Bane, and I'm an Ineffable Dom. That just means, do yourself a favor and please don't try to fit me into categories. Complicated Dom, Intricate Dom, or Confounding Dom work too. I don't want a woman I can break, or overpower, or exercise my dominance over. I want a woman I can come undone with. I want a woman I can lose myself in. I think there are many men like myself, and I hope my writing will be a map for them. (And women, to let them know Doms like this exist.) I want to challenge men to go for the complete power exchange with a woman, but don't be a coward and not give the same that they demand or expect. Consider that when you give one hundred percent of yourself to a person, there is no more of you to give away. You now belong to them the way they belong to you. Inner Doms need a master to train them. I once bowed to my Dom's reckless and tireless desires, but when I gained control, he bowed to my will. The transformation made me into what I am today. What many would call an Ineffable Dom. But its equal term in the Vanilla world, in my opinion, is a real man.

As an English major in college, I took a summer job as a proofreader for a small town newspaper, and got hooked on editing. I also worked my way through college training horses. After graduation, I landed a job for a small independent editing firm, and stayed there for 15 yrs. An old friend, Lucian, approached me to edit his special fiction project, and I got hooked. After an insane few months editing his Dom Wars series for him, Lucian convinced me I should try my hand at writing as well. I’m his co-author for Round Six, the final Dom Wars installment, and we will co-write the White Knight Academy series as well. And in Sept 2014, I’ll release my debut solo work, an Erotic Western with BDSM elements, “Big Game: A Hunted Love Novella”. In addition, I have a military series in the planning stages.
