Cutaway, by Liz Borino

Two years after Steve Michaels called, “Action!” on a new phase in his career as co-producer on the television show Ben’s Life, the lights go up again on his Dom/sub relationship with actor Zack Greene, but Hollywood cameras don’t always capture the truth.
A mention of Steve’s past in the BDSM scene has Zack craving new ways for them to connect. All of the couple’s concerns fall away when Steve and his ex, Peter, are in a car accident. The last ones to know, Zack and Josh, Peter’s slave, rush to the hospital. The injuries from the accident force the dominant man to set aside his pride and accept help from Zack. 
Will the couple get to explore new boundaries in their relationship or will the dependency Cutaway the structure holding their relationship in place?

SLAVE’s Review
Wow, there is so much to say about CUTAWAY, the sequel to Liz Borino's ACTION. I hope it was the author’s intention to give this book the feel of a night time soap opera with several small episodes wrapped into one, waiting on the edge of their seats for the climactic conclusion because that’s what this book did. She hit that target splendidly.
Everything from Zack's long standing role as a lead T.V character getting killed off from the series, to Steve's almost fatal car crash. Then throw in a love struck young man, an outrageous scandal, add a cameo or two from ‘mama’ just for spice and mix it all into a BDSM atmosphere and you end up with an enthralling mini-series in book form.
This tale takes place several years after ACTION, but the author doesn't bore us with un-necessary back story, it just flowed into the now which I liked. At first I wasn't too sure about seeing this story to its end, but with the help of my outside conscience and reading muse, I finished. When this book finally concluded I was truly waiting for the theme music to begin and the closing credits to start rolling. LOL I had to remind myself that it was a book and night one of those night time dramas from the eighties.
Now with all that being said, I did feel the story hit a snag with one of the main characters. Steve had done something to violate the trust and love he and Zack share in the bdsm part of their relationship. Though the author addressed it, I still felt it wasn’t enough to correct what he had done in my opinion. This story was a little heavy with the spice for my taste, but I believe Cutaway is a good little meal for those with that type of pallet. I deleted a half point from my review for the slight against Zack, but overall I enjoyed this book very much.
