That’s a Wrap
As the bright lights of Hollywood dim, futures, relationships, and identities are thrown into question. The once successful television show, Ben’s Life, is in big trouble. For Steve Michaels, the director, in a long-term Dom/sub relationship with Zack Greene, the lead actor, this means impending unemployment.
Through training Josh as their domestic slave, coupled with the care he received during recovery from a debilitating car accident, Steve opens himself up to role reversal in his relationship with Zack. The occasional release of control on Steve’s part, and Zack’s adeptness at taking it, grants them freedom and stability to meet challenges as a unit.
But when the life they had planned is put in jeopardy by one phone call, Steve and Zack will need to expand the safe haven they’ve created together to include one more. Priorities shift and a different light shines the way to new beginnings.
That’s a Wrap is the third installment of Liz Borino’s Mine series starring Steve Michaels and Zack Greene. Changes are ahead for this long established couple in both their private and professional lives. Their careers are up in the air when they learn their TV show is in jeopardy of cancellation due to low ratings. On the home front, Steve and Zack relationship is undergoing a few changes and news about Steve’s mom brings an complication neither man expected.
Steve and Zack’s D/s relationship further evolves from the previous two books in the series. In Cutaway Steve’s car accident offered Zack the opportunity to become a bit more dominant in their relationship. In That’s a Wrap, this exploration is brought into the bedroom as they experiment with Zack in the dominant role and Steve as the submissive. Neither man wants to switch roles on a permanent basis but Steve discovers he enjoys giving up control in the bedroom on occasion.
Another big area of change for Zack and Steve is the addition of Josh into their household. Steve and Zack are in a committed, monogamous relationship and that is not going to change. Instead, Josh is more of a domestic slave. Out of all of various story arcs, this one is the most underdeveloped. Zack and Steve begin the process of making Josh a permanent part of their household, but different events keep this plot simmering on the backburner.
Steve’s mom, Crystal, continues on a downward spiral. She plays a minor but very crucial role in That’s a Wrap. I do not want to give anything away, but I will say that this storyline provides a new dimension to Zack and Steve’s relationship.
That’s a Wrap is a wonderful addition to the Mine series. Liz Borino does a wonderful job keeping the story and Zack and Steve’s relationship fresh. I am not sure if this is the final book in the series, but I know I would like to see where Zack and Steve go next in their personal and professional lives. I am also rather curious to see what happens next with Josh. That part of the storyline has an unfinished feeling to it so I am hoping there is another book in the works for him.
