    1. I have only managed to read to the 25% mark of this book but I am unable to continue. This book is almost unreadable in its current form. There is dialogue from different characters in the same paragraph with no indication of who's saying what. There are multiple examples of the wrong word being used in the wrong context. For example 'wrangled' instead of 'wriggled'. There are multiple examples of transition words missing as well, which seriously impedes the flow of the story. This book needs se [...]


    2. 4 HeartsFirst published at MM Good Book Reviewsmmgoodbookreviews.wordpressZack and Steve are a committed couple who love their D/s lifestyle. they live together and work together on a popular TV show, but problems begin to emerge when an out of control producer throws a spanner in the works and Zack’s parents unexpectedly turn up.This is a really well written novella that takes us into a long-standing relationship and shows us the dynamics of a loving D/s relationship where discipline is neede [...]


    3. Short sweet and hot. Two great characters I fell in love with very quickly. I wish this story was much longer, but still felt satisfied when the book was finished. I don't normally rate shorts very high, but there was something about this one. I have no doubt that I will re-read this story.


    4. This was another enjoyable book by Liz. I love the way she makes you fall in love with her characters. I look forward to reading more of her books!


    5. Review posted at Red Hot BooksZack, an actor, and Steve, a director, both live in Hollywood and work as part of the same television show. They’ve lived together for two and a half years and are in a D/s relationship. The only way that Zack is able to control his ‘wild ways’ is through the punishment offered in this D/s relationship.The D/s elements of their relationship were not explicit. The only evidence that I could see of it was Zack wore a collar and Steve would occasional apply a pad [...]


    6. 3.75I have to admit that I started this book after reading through half of Cutaway, the second book of the series, which I received in exchange for an honest review before its publication. What lead me to this book was the fact that I felt I needed to know more about these characters before I could give a really honest review about it. So I went and found Action and immediately began reading. Both are a first read for me from author Liz Borino and I have to say that I was thoroughly surprised.Fr [...]


    7. Reviewed for Hearts On Fire ReviewsI will admit, I was a little bit nervous about this, as I wasn’t sure how “light” the BDSM would be, considering that Zack wears that collar all the time. I need not have worried, because the D/s relationship here is imperfectly perfect. Sounds odd, I know, but there is so much about their relationship that I loved. Steve is the Dom, in control and doling out punishment when Zack needs it, yet is not perfect. Sometimes he makes mistakes and sometimes he b [...]


    8. Action By Liz Borino Ms. Borino did it again, created a book that has all the earmarks for the start of another explosive series. Steve and Zack will gather as large of following as Ms. Borino’s first series about the Taylor twins have. In Action, Steve Michaels s seeing Zack Greene, the star of the hit T.V. show he has been directing for the past three years. Rich Glenn the producer of the series decides to make a bunch of changes to rules of the show. The main one being that nobody involved [...]


    9. Here's what sold me on this story Hollywood, m/m, BDSM. How could I pass that up? This story starts with Zack and Steve already in a relationship, actually they've been together for three years. Zack is an actor, the lead on a TV show and still in the closet to the general population, Steve is the director of said TV show and openly gay. They started their relationship when the show started and now live together and have a D/s relationship.Pause here for just a second because I found it a bit we [...]

    11. Part way through and I have whiplash from the abrupt POV shifts that made the start of the book close to unreadable. Head hopping multiple times within a paragraph (the first spanking scene) is just too much.It seems to have eased back a bit now, but the editor should have pointed it out, along with missing words, tense changes, and odd usages like hotels rooms 'sagely decorated'.There's something a little clunky about the writing and the plot, but I like the sweetness of the relationship betwee [...]


    12. 3 1/2 sweet peasCombine a story about movie stars, a little bdsm kink, and hunky gay men and you’ve got me hooked even before I turn to page 1. Zach and Steve have been partners for several years, and no one seems to have noticed that relationship status, despite the fact that they do live together, Zach is the lead actor in a popular TV show, and Steve is the show’s director. Not only that, but while Zach is securely in the closet, Steve is openly gay. Well, after all, Zach is an actor, so [...]


    13. Hm, the way this story begins it simply doesn't play right for me. It was like jumping into a middle of a story. I would rather read at least a prequel about how did Steve and Zack meet before jumping into a scene.What we do get to know is that Zack and Steve are in a Dom/Sub relationship for good three years and that they seem to be happy together. But I didn't understand why did Zack hide his past for so long. That part didn't make sense to me. It's not like he was being a criminal or worse. T [...]


    14. A cute and straightforward MM romance.Zack and Steve have been in a committed monogamous Dom/Sub relationship for over 2 years. This story is about a 2-week blip in their otherwise great relationship and centers around the impact of the Rich's (a-hole producer of the series Zack stars in and Steve directs) actions on Zack and Steve's relationship. Even with the non-con this was an easy read.It's Book 2 of the series. To find out how Zack and Steve met, you have to read Casting. I haven't yet.The [...]


    15. Zack Greene grew up in a controlling religious cult of a family so when he broke free he went a little to far with his freedom. He was spiraling right out of his acting career when he was given a lucky break that had him falling into director Steve Michaels arms. Zack needs structure, guidance, and someone to take the lead, which Steve is more than happy to do but three years later everything they’ve worked for could blow up in their faces when others threaten to expose them.The author took a [...]


    16. Author Liz Borino has done it again, creating engaging and all-too-real characters you're sure to fall in love with! She has done an admirable job of showing how two people living what many consider an ‘alternative’ lifestyle (warnings: light BDSM, m/m romance) can make it work for them. Well-developed main characters, an antagonist that is truly despicable and self-serving, dynamic supporting characters (including Timmy the cat) and an engaging storyline combine to make Action! a fantastic [...]


    17. 4 StarsThis is a very gentle D/s story. Possibly the sweetest I have ever read. Steve is openly gay, has been since he was a teenager. With a hippy mum like Crystal – could it be any other way? I loved her! Very Barbra Streisand in “Meet the Fockers” (or that is how I saw her.) He and Zack met when Zack auditioned for the lead role in Steve’s new show, “Ben’s Life”. They have been dating for 3 years and living together for 2 and a half. That they are together is an open secret on s [...]


    18. Full Review: thetbrpile.weebly/1/post/2The characters were a breath of fresh air to your normal Dom/sub, though they are actor and director they are really rather normal apart from this aspect of their relationship. I also love how though Zack is the sub that isn’t all that he is not even in their relationship, he is still his own person but a person who likes caring for his Dom and handing over a lot of the reigns. Though Steve is a Dom he knows he is not king of the world and doesn’t expec [...]


    19. I wanted to like this book more than I did. There are good bones to the story and Zach and Steve's interactions are interesting, so I was hopeful that this would be a good domestic discipline series. It is so badly edited, though, that I kept getting thrown out of the story. (Am I reading the same edition as all those people who say it is well-written? I wonder)There are two more in the series but I'm not sure I can put up with the poor writing/editing long enough to read the other two.


    20. Action was a great book right from the beginning. Sexy, Hot, and Romantic kept me reading page to page from cover to cover. Zack and Steve not only have to deal with crisis at work that could damage thier way of life, but dealing with past secrets could damage thier relationship. I loved the way these two men come to grips with themselves and each other, as well as take care of the people that want to put them out of a job! Love and protect those you care about, and making it hot for the readers [...]


    21. I’m still not sure how I feel about this series. The story line is quite decent. The MCs are likable. The steam is, well…steamy, but something is missing. The editing is below par, and the writing style doesn’t flow. I’m often more conscious of the words/wording than I am of what is being said, and I find that off-putting. To make matters worse, I can’t quite describe the problem. Perhaps I find Borino’s writing a little too dramatic and a bit pretentious, affected. I’m going to ha [...]


    22. This book was really quite terrible. The thing that I had the hardest time with in this book was that it seemed very poorly researched. There had to be the crazy BDSM guy, and the crazy "Mormon" family (for one, they weren't Mormon, but the author kept calling them that) who were so over the top (but seemingly for no reason). This book suffered from no plot, unlikeable characters, and the author's misguided passion.


    23. Sadly, I'll be ending this series with this book. I'm just not getting into it. The plot is ok but not great. The writing style I found difficult to follow. The dialogue was confusing and overall the book needed editing.


    24. This book is full of tension and well action. These two guys are well established but hidden away. As things change they need to deal with lots of drama and full disclosure. Kept me on the edge of my seat.


    25. Steve and Zach are engaging protagonists that I like a great deal. I am looking forward to seeing what direction Liz Borino is planning on taking their relationship To read my review in its entirety, please click HERE.

    27. Not into the writers version of dom/sub lifestyle. Didn't dig on the dialog. Just not my cup of tea. I don't like men to be portrayed as week and to me they were.


    28. It was okay. Sterotypical issues that bothered me. The story was there underneath the forced drama and the characters were good.
