    1. If you like stories that are high on sweetness and low on angst with an extra dose of naughty, Override is the book for you. I am a fluffaholic; I don't need angst to be happy (just the opposite, in fact). I adored the first two-third of this book, but I got a little restless toward the end. Donavan craves to submit, but at 6 foot something and over 200 pounds, he doesn't feel like a sub. Then he meets a man at Pride who throws his world out of alignment. Seth is much smaller than Donavan, but h [...]

    2. Ugh. This is a case of amazing blurb, lacklustre execution.When I read the blurb, I was quite excited to read a BDSM-themed romance. But the story was more on the BDSM side and less on the romance side. The start of the book is purely BDSM-heavy, so much so that I started second-guessing my choice of book. And then there is no romance or emotional development. Seth and Donavan have sex regularly and feel affected by how much their partner has taken over their thoughts and fathom themselves in lo [...]

    3. 3.5 starsTo fully enjoy a M/M BDSM novel (of which there are very few I actually love) there needs to be two main elements: 1. There needs to be passion and a connection between the partners. Examples of wonderful passion and romance filled BDSM books include Bound by Lies, Power Exchange and Load the Dice: The Complete Series.2. The Dom cannot treat the sub like a child (unless it is part of their particular kink) and the sub cannot act like a child. Examples of childish, gossiping, subs with l [...]

    4. 3.5 stars rounded up to 4 because you guessed it still no 1/2 stars here on GR maybe it wasn't a 4 star read for me but it was definitely closer to 4 than 3.What I was expecting and what I gott the same thing. Interestingly enough the first line of the blurb for this book is "Don't judge a book by it's cover" can I just say "How totally appropriate this is." because based on the title and the cover I was expecting something a little darker, edgier, grittier with maybe a little more angstt what I [...]

    5. This book was not what I was expecting. I was expecting angst and heavy BDSM. Instead, it was the polar opposite. Sometimes when a book isn't what we envisioned, it can work against it but for me, it worked out great.*whispers* You see I admit I'm not big into BDSM. You're probably shaking your head asking yourself- why read it then?For three reasons:1. THE COVER. I freely admit to being a cover whore, and this cover is gorgeous.2. SJD3. The blurb. I was interested in reading about a couple that [...]

    6. A super sweet book with a HEA and great start to new series This is the story of a man, Donovan Gregory, who wants to explore his submisive side. He is used to always being consideres the large and in charge man due to his height and muscles - but what he really wants is to be on his knees for a man who can Master him. Seth Manning, he is a Dominant with a capital D - and just because he is under 6 ft tall and isn't full of muscles, he knows how to bring even the biggest man under control. When [...]

    7. 3.5 StarsOverride is sweet, sexy and low angst. And I knew there was little to no angst going in, but I am still very much trained to look for it, so I kept expecting something to happen. But, nope, the story is sweet from beginning to end.I liked the story, quite a lot, but I think I would have liked it more if there had been some sort of conflict. Wouldn't have to be angst for the sake of angst, mind you, but something. I enjoyed both MC's and loved that they found each other. And, I loved tha [...]

    8. 3.5 Stars!This one just okay for me. I'd call it BDSM-lite. Nothing my vanilla heart couldn't handle. I found some of the dialogue to be on the cheesy side. I also found it to be pretty insta-lust and insta-love. Both of which kept me from really loving this one. Or even liking it a lot. The writing was pretty good. And I will say the sex was hot. But I'm not so sure I'll continue on with this series.

    9. 4 heartsI think because my taste for BDSM focused stories tends to run on the darker side, I find it hard to equate absolute fluffiness with BDSM. I now can do that with no issue, because it was done absolutely perfectly here!We follow Seth, a 33 year old doctor who is a well established Dom, and Donovan, a 25 year old factory worker who is currently exploring his submissive side, as they fall in love hard and fast. What drew me into this story was the fact the Donovan is a lot physically larger [...]

    10. ~3.5 stars~I finished this book 10 days ago and it's probably not a good sign that I can't remember much now that I write my review. Or maybe it's just my dysfunctional memory that is acting up here and causes me to rely on my notes.I was really excited to read this book and I enjoyed it while reading but I like my books grittier and with more tension than this one. But this is purely personal taste so if you like your stories sweet and without much angst than this one might be the perfect book [...]

    11. Review originally posted atSinfully.3.5 starsDonavan may seem dominant at first look, a factory worker and 6 foot plus of pure muscle, but he has the heart of a submissive. Seth, on the other hand, is his opposite in many ways, older, smaller, highly educated and thrilled at the thought of being able to dominate such a big and powerful man. When they meet at Pride, Seth notices Donavan watching the submissive during a demonstration and offers to give Seth the chance to submit. From that moment o [...]

    12. 3.5 starsFluffy BDSM book. Although I do like it more if it's lil bit 'rough'. But I still liked this one. It was so sweet and nice. Thank god, it's not making me nauseous. I'm more interested with Cain and Tristan's story. Unfortunately the next book is going to be another MC's.

    13. 3.5 starsThis was sugary sweet fluff. I keep referring to it as BDSM Lite!!! It's not a bad thing, it was the opposite of what I was expecting that's all. Super sweet, low angst, feel good story. Nothing here to complain about folks just keep it pushing!Sure we got the vice versus switch of the mc physical stands on BDSM. We have Donovan who from all appearances looks like a top, a Dom and wouldn't have a submissive bone in his body. This is where looks clearly are deceiving folks. He's craving [...]

    14. Yowza!Join this sweet bdsm-inspired pornganza and you WILL NOT be disappointed!I am picky with BDSM these days. I used to go through the GR lists and read everything above 2 stars. Having had my fair share of crapctacular pseudo BDSM wannabe novels, some super harcore scene after scene ones, and whatever is in the middle, I am happy to say this one was a win!Hot sex with over-abundance of dirty-talk –although I’m not a fan of the Dom calling his sub “boy” - was just what the doctor order [...]

    15. 2 nice and lovable characters. Donovan is a sweet guy, a good friend, a blue collar, works hard, has a body to die for, and wants to explore some submissive sex. Seth is a doctor, is close to his loving family, and very confident in his sexuality and his dominant side. Both are what they are looking for in a relationship. It’s sweet, sexy, hot, with a touch of BDSM, and no angst at all.I was not swooned, but I enjoyed it in overall : Thank you so much, Smutty Elf for this nice gift. Happy Holi [...]

    16. This was a sexy, kinky, lovely story between two men that was pretty much angst-free and drama-free. I really enjoyed Donavan and Seth and their instant chemistry together. I always like it when there are stories where the "norms" aren't the norm, so here we had the big, beefy man who wanted to explore his submissive side, rather than a dominant one. And Seth is smaller in height, but definitely dominant in bed. Their time together is loving, caring, and they are equals in their relationship. Th [...]

    17. 3.5 Stars ~ You can't begin to imagine my excitement when I discovered that SJD Peterson was writing a new BDSM series! I have been waiting to get down and dirty and meet the men who will make up 'The Underground Club'. The description and the cover certainly yanked my chain!I really liked both Donovan and Seth right from the beginning and that's a little unusual for me. Most of the time one character will really grab me and then the other one sneaks up, but here I enjoyed both men right off the [...]

    18. “I don’t want to be with anyone but you, and I really, really don’t want you seeing anyone but me.”This was not what I expected, not at all. This book is part of The Underground Club and I wanted to, together with Donavan, explore him becoming a submissive. I was expecting more BDSM scenes. And the one that were describes were quite tame, that I could understand giving that Donavan was being initiated. This was just a sweet story about two men, Dr. Seth Manning, 32 (the Dominant) & D [...]

    19. I liked this okay, I didn't feel as emotionally connected to the characters as I would have liked but the writing was fine and the MCs were good. Hope something comes of Cain and Tristan, I will be reading the next.

    20. Just couldn't get into it. I found the beginning a little choppy and I didn't engage with the characters. Not for me.

    21. 3.75 starsIt has been awhile since I've read an S.J.D. Peterson book. It was like rekindling with a long lost friend. Great story and enjoyed the secondary characters especially Tristan and Cain. The end of the last chapter through me for a loop. The discussion between Sean, Nash and Malcolm about Joshua was I feel ill placed and could have been woven seamlessly some place else as a tie in for the second book.

    22. 2.5 Stars ~ Donavan—factory worker with a heart of gold—and Seth—handsome OBGYN with dominant tendencies—meet at Pride, where Seth finds Donovan staring longingly at a couple of subs participating in a demonstration. Seth can immediately sense Donavan’s desires, and invites him to do a simple rope demonstration with him. I know…just roll with it. It’s fiction! There were a few moments where I had to remind myself to not take it all too seriously. I honestly don’t think this is me [...]

    23. When I saw that SJD Peterson was starting a new series, I was really excited. I loved her Guards of Folsom series (especially Blake and Ty) so there is no doubt that SJD can write BDSM and do it well. Unfortunately, Override didn't live up to my expectations. I was so disappointed. There is a noticeable lack of chemistry between the two main characters, and with the exception of a bit of low self confidence on the part of Donavan and a bit of over the top and contrived (and confusing) drama at t [...]

    24. 3.5 stars This was just tooce, for an SJD Peterson book. I shall probably forever judge her books by the standards of Beyond Duty, Plan B and BAMF, my favorites. I suppose I had different expectations with a cover like that, the "Undercover Club" series name and BDSM. This would be a good book for someone dipping a toe into the genre, because it was what I'd consider mild BDSM. There is a flogging scene that's fairly brief, a little bondage and butt plugs. There was a role play/role flip that wa [...]

    25. 3.5 Stars“Override” is full of sugar with no bitterness at all. It has some pretty hot BDSM role playing and a sugary sweet romance between two extremely attractive men. Erotic romance always does it for me but this book got a little boring and unrealistic after almost 60% of the story.Donovan has a secret longing to submit but his physique is a big hindrance towards his desire. At six two with muscles as hard as steel, no one considers him to be in need of a master but all he wants is to su [...]

    26. Review by The Blogger Girls.Donavan’s best friend finally convinces him to attend Pride where he ends up watching some rope demonstrations from the sidelines that intrigue him. Seth, a dom, notices Donavan and seeing his interest, encourages him to participate.Donavan is a guy who is inexperienced with BDSM but longs to be the one submitting in his relationships. He is a big guy of is often mistaken as dominant because of his size. Seth is smaller, which sort of throws Donavan off at first, bu [...]

    27. One of my absolute favorite things is when a writer turns stereotypes on their ear. In this case, the perception of what a Dom and a sub are supposed to look like. Because of Donovan’s size, the assumption is he must be a top, so he’s surprised—and a little scared—when Seth sees beyond the exterior and offers to show him what he’s missing.At this point, I’m jumping in with both feet, ready for a ride that only SJD Peterson can give me. That smokin’ hot, crazy-kinky, angst-filled ri [...]
