Erryn reviews ‘No Good Deed (The Heretics Doms Club Book 4)’ by Marie Sexton. This book was released by the author on June 22, 2020, and is 272pgs long. The audiobook version of this story was narrated by John Solo.  It was released on August 19, 2020, and is 9 hrs and 37 mins long. A copy was provided for an honest review.

Why I read this book:  Because ‘One Man’s Trash’ had such an emotional impact on me. Because ‘Terms of Service’ blew me away. Because ‘Spare the Rod’ hit me in the gut.


Charlie Garcia has spent his life helping others. For years, he’s provided free health care for his neighbors and served as a counselor for his friends and their partners. He loves being the go-to guy, except when it results in him falling for the wrong man. 

Now, six years later, the one who got away is back in Denver to donate a kidney, and he has a request – he wants Charlie to marry him long enough to serve as medical power of attorney. Charlie’s happy to help, but in addition to a surprise fiancé, he suddenly has two huge problems: a neighbor with a grudge who wants to ruin his career and a secret that may destroy his friendship with Warren, Phil, and Gray. 

Bonus content: includes three new Heretic Doms Club vignettes.

My Review:

In the previous three Heretic Doms book, Charlie was the backbone of the group.  He was there to quietly support Phil, Gray, and Warren as they navigated the treacherous waters of becoming Dominants to very different submissives.  Taylor, Avery, and River were all unique and each man suited the Dom he was partnered with, but those were not easy matches.  Charlie was often there to ensure the matches were made, the men had sense talked into them, and things moved forward.  Even in this fourth book, there are hiccups.  Avery can be resentful of the newcomer, Taylor’s propensity of self-harm isn’t completely eliminated, and River is attempting to hold things together for the three of them.

This book centers around Jonas.  Six years ago he’d been in a toxic relationship with Gray.  The men were ill-suited and after three years, it was painfully obvious things weren’t working.  Jonas was not into pain but submitted to make Gray happy.  Gray was in love with his best friend and fellow Dominant Phil, but he tried to keep that attraction secret.  It could never go anywhere because, one: two Dominants and two: Phil didn’t reciprocate Gray’s feelings.  In fact, he was completely oblivious to them.  So Jonas turned to the rock of the group for help and Charlie was there.  Then Jonas disappeared for six long years.

His return sends the group into a tailspin.  Charlie is happy to see Jonas and surprised at the request Jonas makes.  Gray, meanwhile, is angry.  And Gray angry is a sight to behold.  Avery is jealous, and their emotions upset the boat the three couples are sailing on.

Jonas’ return is for altruistic reasons, his request of Charlie could be viewed as selfish.  But Charlie is known for his own charity work.  He’s a nurse who tends to patients in his home.  Patients who can’t afford to seek help, or who would be in trouble if they do.  More proof the American healthcare system is quite broken.  But when that is all put in jeopardy, Charlie has some tough choices to make. Also, there is on the page violence.  Appropriate to be sure, but there nonetheless.

This is not an easy book.  I have fallen in love with the other men and to witness the disruption was disturbing.  I wanted it all to work out.  Now, this is a Marie Sexton romance so, of course, everything did.  What I also loved about this audio is the bonus content.  Certain scenes shown from other characters’ points of view.  And a happy ending for a charming character I had come to care about.

Finally I need to mention John Solo.  Talk about perfect.  He hit just the right note for each character, bringing them to life.  He did a great job and I’m so glad he did this series.

So, yeah, I loved the book.  It was the perfect ending to a phenomenal series.  One I plan to listen to again.

My Rating:
