    One thought on “Golden”

    1. Ever since Sean Michael s sports series the Going for Gold books about a swimmer, a diver, and a gymnast with their respective coaches , I have secretly been hoping for books just like them Well, not exactly like them, but in the same tradition Golden delivers this in spades It has the dynamic between swimmer and coach, the subtle and less subtle D s, and yet it is also new and different For one thing, the romance takes place after the swimmer has retired, includes a long separation, and the sw [...]

    2. BDSM is supposed to be safe, sane, and consensual Telling someone you re now their Dom the night after you see each other for the first time in four years, after the first time you fuck, and without the other person agreeing to take part in this kind of lifestyle is fucking disturbing.There is not enough HELL NO in the world.

    3. I need to begin this review by stating that I have enjoyed many novels by this author in the past and expect to do so in the future However this particular one, Golden, does not fall in the keeper category for me In fact, I must be honest, had I not been obligated to review this book, I would have abandoned it early on and relegated it to my DNF Did Not Finish shelf well before the ending I am going to review this by drawing on the two main areas I felt weakened and, ultimately, derailed what co [...]

    4. I found some of the BDSM annoying, and yet alluring at the same time I loved the two main characters I could see how Chris used BDSM to give Justin structure to his life after he stopped competing as a swimmer, and some of the erotic BDSM scenes were unbelievably hot, but it s still not my scene, but I totally enjoyed the book anyway It s really 4 and 1 2 stars for me.

    5. Ever since reading Sean Michael s sports series the Going for Gold books about a swimmer, a diver, and a gymnast with their respective coaches , I have secretly been hoping for books just like them Well, not exactly like them, but in the same tradition Golden delivers what I was hoping for in spades, and I loved rereading it Makes me want to go back and reread the whole Going for Gold series as well Golden has a special dynamic between swimmer and coach, some subtle and not so subtle D s, and y [...]

    6. I received a copy to read and review for Wicked ReadsIn pure Sean Michael fashion this book was heavy on the love and sex Justin is a former Olympian who isn t happy and one night feels like he wants to jump from his porch to the pool below and see if he can make it He is drunk and decides to call his former coach Chris Chris hasn t talked to Justin since he retired four years ago Both men were in love with each other four years ago and never did anything about it Coach thought he was doing the [...]

    7. Why did I pick up this book Two reasons 1 It s Sean Michael, and 2 The book cover model swimmer s back.Four years ago, after winning Olympic medals gold, Justin retired from swimming, and he s been floundering ever since For years swimming was everything, but his Coach waved him off once he d retired The Fourth of July finds him contemplating doing something stupid, so Justin calls up Coach To his surprise, Chris answers.When Justin retired, Chris cut all ties with the swimmer he d fallen in lov [...]

    8. Okay, 2 stars for plot, 3 stars for plenty of sex As long as you know what you are getting into when you start this book, you ll likely enjoy it, however I might suggest spreading it out over a few days to avoid burnout.Justin is feeling down, his life sucks and he s actually borderline suicidal when he finally calls his coach who wouldn t even take his phone calls the first year after he retired They get together and Coach is determined that now he s given Justin a chance to be on his own, they [...]

    9. Lots of sex Per formula However here it felt needed because it was a tool to help heel and to communicate Basically Justin could not hide with the sex Somehow that worked for me I liked the concept of an Olympic has been struggling there are always many sides to people than you think and it doesn t shock me at all what Justin went through Fame is fleeting aptly fits how do you come back from that Good characters, very little kink outside of a complete OCD obsession with nipples or nips as SM s [...]

    10. 2.5 starsI normally like Sean Michaels books a lot and I m a fan of his Personal Best 1 A Going for the Gold Novel stories and Jesse and Mike but this book about a former Olymipic swimmer and his trainer was boring and repetitive I think if there had been less sex and plot it would have been great because the plot was promising

    11. Loved the longer book instead of short novella I also really liked the beginning in that it was clear the so called dom had screwed up and admitted so The story progressed nicely but, wanted a bit of the story because these guys were getting a longer book The sex scenes were great but could have dropped a couple to get the story stronger.

    12. Golden by Sean Michael 3 starsM M Romance with power exchange dynamicI was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.Chris is a swim coach He has coached an Olympian Justin But, when Justin decides to retire, Chris is left starting over He trains because it s what he knows But his heart is still with Justin.Justin is literally drowning in life He isn t able to hold a job that he likes and he misses his coach For a while, Coach was his whole life They ate, slept just sleeping and train [...]

    13. 2.5 HeartsReview written for MM Good Book Reviewsmmgoodbookreviews.wordpress Although the idea behind the story was good enough Golden failed to give the expected entertainment More to that it was very disturbing at the beginning.The story starts with Justin, a retired swimmer, contemplating suicide For four years he s been lost in a world he doesn t understand and he doesn t belong His days of being worth something are over and the hurt his Coach caused him when he pushed him away like damaged [...]

    14. Review originally posted on Just Love Reviews justlovereviews 2017 06 1If you ve been around for a bit you know that I LOVE sports romances So I was looking forward to this, but this book ended up being a bit of a drag for me, unfortunately.The first half of the book was them getting Justin out of his current life job, apt and into one Chris crafted for him The relationship started very suddenly after not talking for four years Usually that would be no big deal, because people meet and it s not [...]

    15. 2.5 stars I liked it but like half way through it got kinda repetitive, there were way too many sex scenes and not enough emphasis on Justin s mental transformation from being freaked out about bdsm to accepting it and calling him master that was completely out of the blue And his transformation from depressed to happy Also I don t think there was enough emphasis on the sane and consensual part of bdsm since Chris was kinda assuming he knew about everything Justin wanted needed after 4 years apa [...]

    16. Coach Chris wanted to give Justin space and let him decide to come back to him without pressure when Justin finished his swimming career The result of that decision is nearly fatal but thankful Justin reaches out to Chris at the last minute The rest of the story shows these two mean building a relationship and rebuilding the trust They must redefine who they are to each other in ways that are different but yet in some ways the same.

    17. If you ve never read SM s Hammer series and PWP is your thing you might enjoy thisr everyone else Golden will read like the the 1035th iteration of Tanny and Billy s relationship with swimming facepalm

    18. There is no question that this is a Sean Michael book, sex, sex a short witty dialogue BUT This one was a little repetitive and parts of it were dragged out If the editing had been better it could have been the first half of a great story.
