After twenty-five years of marriage, Jenny wants to try something new with her husband, Mike. Her book club’s been reading BDSM fiction. It’s piqued her curiosity enough to make her want to brave a local munch and try things with her husband.
Mike loves Jenny and would do anything for her. But memories of the abuse his mom suffered haunt him, and he refuses to be “that” man. When Jenny tells Mike she wants them to try BDSM, he attempts to keep an open mind despite his personal issues about it.
While meeting people from the local community, Mike makes an effort to give Jenny what she needs despite his desires warring with his conscience. Once his shock and surprise wear off over who he discovers is involved in the alternative lifestyle, Jenny and Mike start forging a new path. But will that journey lead them apart, or bring them closer together?

A Roll of the Dice is the ninth book in the Suncoast Society series by Tymber Dalton. While you can read this book as a standalone novel, to best understand all the secondary characters I think it’s best to read the other books in the series.
Jenny has been married to her husband Mike for twenty five years, and for the last eighteen or so they have been raising their son Mikey. Mikey and all his activities has been the main focus of their lives but now that Mikey is away at college, Jenny and Mike have a chance to get to know each other all over again.
Jenny desires for a more spice and kink in the bedroom and inability to explain it to her husband comes across as true to life. Mike’s struggle not just to please his wife but also come to grips that BDSM is not abuse comes across as genuine. It was nice to see his side and understand his reasons for not wanting anything to do with BDSM. The biggest point in this book that was emphases over and over again was to communicate with your partner on what you want and don’t want.
I found this book well written with a realistic plot. I enjoyed how the author incorporated romance, the importance of communication, BDSM together in a realistic and believable way. The main characters and the secondary characters were interesting and very true to life. I enjoyed all the twists and turns Jenny and Mike went through as they explored BDSM together. I had a hard time putting this book down. Overall, this was a very captivating book and I hope to see these characters again in the future.
This book is a stand alone. The Suncoast Society series revolves around people who attend the same BDSM club; though you may see a character from another book, the stories are not connected so feel free to 1-click.
I love this look at Jenny and Mike’s life. When the readers meet this couple, they have been married for 25 years and are sending their son off to college.
So Jenny and Mike now have their home to themselves and the struggle to be a couple again feels so real. I truly think this is something many readers can relate to, oh and I love reading about a mature couple!
Jenny has read a few kinky books with BDSM themes (another thing I think many readers can relate to) and is working up the courage to tell Mike she wants to try something new.
I truly felt the tension build between this couple and it felt so real that despite being together for so many years, wanting to explore something new in the bedroom could cause for some miscommunication and on some level fear of rejection.
I adored how Jenny and Mike sought out expert information. Jenny’s fear of pushing her husband away or upsetting him was so well done; the concern that the man you have spent your adult life with might feel like he is not satisfying you.
Experiencing these two slowly develop a Dom and Sub relationship, one that works inside of their marriage, made for a reading experience I think many readers will enjoy; I know I did!
In the end, the balance Jenny and Mike find and their journey to their new happy was truly well done!
I personally loved the use of Tony from The Denim Dom!
