Review - Xylan by Rider Jacobs

by Rider Jacobs
Genre: Contemporary M/M Romance

With his latest action movie finding worldwide success Xylan decided to try something different. He became a judge for the television show Talented Americans. There he meets Jarrett, a reporter with a surly attitude and a reputation for unethical journalism.
Xylan has a secret. While he may portray the larger than life action star in films he has a desire to be dominated in the bedroom. With a room filled with equipment to fulfil that desire and a boyfriend who knows how to wield a paddle, Xylan feels he has found a perfect balance in life. Then one night, while Hamilton is away, Xylan suffers the ultimate act of betrayal. When his world comes crashing down and his secret is revealed for the world to see Xylan must decide if his love for Hamilton is enough to see them through.
My Review:
 This was an interesting story that features a super hot rock star turned movie star, Xylan, and his partner/manager Hamilton.  Hamilton books Xylan as a judge on a talent show not realizing that Jarrett, an editor from P.O.I.N.T. Magazine has weaseled his way onto this show as a judge as well to get a sensational story about Xylan.   
I enjoyed this sexy story and its really interesting storyline.  It's well written with a lot of kinky chemistry.  Xylan is sweet and caring man who also happens to be very submissive to Hamilton's dominance.  These two men have spent years keeping their private life private and Jarrett is intent on exposing it.  My only negative is that I feel the story ends very abruptly and I felt a little lost and let down.  3.75 stars ~Booklover Sue

Raised in a small town in the corner of Kansas, Rider's mother installed a love of books in her. Thanks to her mother she developed a love for all things paranormal at an early age. Her parents always encouraged her to use her imagination and write stories.

When she was 18 she left the small farming community without a stop light and headed for the bright lights of Las Vegas. She continued to write but life kept her from actually publishing anything. After ten years in the big city, Rider decided she wanted a much slower paced life and returned to Kansas.

It was here that she met a friend who loved her stories and encouraged her to submit them.

When not writing Rider loves to read anything she can get her hands on from the Dark taboo erotic books to the lighter Amish romance. She also has an interest in the lost art of pen paling. Putting pen to paper and sharing the good times and the bad through the written word with friends near and far. Rider also loves to travel and while she has been to the tourist attractions she much prefers the hidden gems off the beaten path that few know about. It is these adventures that often find their way into her books.
