Book Review: Straight Shooter (Rear Entrance Video #3) by Heidi Belleau

*** This review is spoiler-free! Read on with confidence! ***

Like all the books in the Rear Entrance Video series, Straight Shooter deals with real world issues that are far edgier and less popularized than the typical male/male or even Dom/sub stories common in the romance genre. Austin’s story is just as much of a journey of self-discovery as Christian’s and Rob’s, except he’s not strictly gay and continues to identify that way, sort of toe-ing the line, throughout the book. Austin’s kink is humiliation and punishment, and he likes it most when it comes from being sexually dominated by another man.

Liam, Austin’s crush, is a bi-sexual porn star who runs his own adult production studio and has made a name for himself on screen as the heavy-handed, take-no-shit Master Puck who breaks in ‘unwitting straight boys’ until they beg for more. His real personality though couldn’t be more different from that, and it’s a real struggle for Austin to reconcile what he wants with the real person he actually wants it with, and Liam won’t let his new sub be anything but honest with himself.

Of all the stories in this series, I enjoyed this one the most and sped through it in a few hours. Austin started out as someone so uncomfortable in his own skin, so aggressive and defensive and rude that it was difficult to be in his head at first, but his journey is the most rocky and difficult of all of the roommates because of the multiple blurred boundaries he had to face. Watching Austin’s transformation was a treat, especially after the complete ass he made of himself in the previous books, and likewise, I enjoyed watching the dynamics between the roommates change as Austin himself started to change.

The Rear Entrance Video series is ideal for male/male romance readers who enjoy, or are at least open-minded about, different sexual orientations and lifestyle choices; it addresses subjects that are less conventionally romantic (and sometimes straight-up uncomfortable) as the characters discover who they are and what they’re willing to do to accept themselves. Straight Shooter *can* be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend starting with Apple Polisher to help understand the back story of the roommates and their unique stories.
