Synopsis

Sam is a naïve young man who arrives in Hollywood to escape his brutal father. When the older, sophisticated Aaron rescues him, Sam discovers what it means to fully surrender himself to another.

Eighteen year-old Sam Cunningham is used to living with lots of secrets. He’s had to hide his true nature his entire life or else incur the wrath of his strict and abusive father. When he’s faced with a horrible ultimatum, he flees to Hollywood where he hopes he can escape the fate his father has planned for him.

Aaron Rubenstein is a wealthy and sophisticated man who loses himself in painting portraits of bound men to help stave off his loneliness and despair. Unable to find a lasting connection with anyone, he’s had to resort to paying lovers not only for their affections, but to be allowed to indulge in his darker passions. Aaron’s only respite is his nights at the Hampton Road sadomasochism club where he’s a respected Dominant.

Naïve and inexperienced in the ways men can please one another, Sam takes a job at a bathhouse where he first glimpses a beautiful older man. Aaron notices the sweet towel boy watching him with interest every time he patronizes the Temple of Eros bathhouse. A traumatic incident for the innocent towel boy triggers Aaron’s protective tendencies and he’s compelled to rescue the gentle Sam from the clutches of the Temple’s manager.

They embark on a journey together that teaches them both things about themselves that they never knew. As their bond deepens and Sam is trained for his first night at the Hampton Road Club, an unknown danger lurks. Will Sam’s father find him and destroy both men’s chance for true happiness together? Or will Aaron protect his boy and keep him for always?

FourStars

This was another good book, going to be a great series, by Mortica Knight. This story was about a young man escaping his father’s brutality and finding his true love. I loved how Sam and Aaron met. I also loved the journey that they took together to find themselves.

I felt Aaron was a very caring man but yet not sure where he fit in his sexual life.  Sam on the other was very sweet, very trusting of Aaron while he was teaching Sam how to behave. My favorite part was when Aaron and Saul took on Sam’s father.

This was a good start to the series can’t wait to read more.

In Book 1 of the series, the setting is in 1920’s. It’s the story of a man, a wealthy painter by the name of Aaron Rubenstein and how he found his sub/forever love in Sam, a naive 18 year old boy. From the start you feel really bad for Aaron. He’s gay, knows it, loves certain games, yet he hates himself. Probably because most of the guys he “plays” with don’t understand him.
Then he meets Sam in a bathing house. Sam ran away from home cause his rich father wants him to marry, but Sam is gay. He’s so sheltered though, that he doesn’t know a thing about gay sex. Thankfully he meets Aaron, who adores him. These two are made to be together and they’re so sweet. Too sweet…lol. Aaron and Sam both cried way too much. I liked them enough though to give this book a 4 instead of my first choice of 3 stars. It was interesting reading about a romance set in the 1920’s.
If you wanna read something extra sweet, a healing story, this book is for you.
Oh and don’t be fooled by the “Road Club”. Lol This isn’t an MC story folks. Haha

This book was hard for me to get through at times. I found myself skimming at times but at other times so into the story I didn’t want to put it down. I had to keep reminding myself that it was set in the 1920’s for one thing. LOL. I loved how sweet and innocent Sam was but at times I also got frustrated with his nativity.  I wanted to think Aaron was a dirty old bird, but I couldn’t help but like him, I loved his patience with Sam. This ended up being a beautiful story of love and friendship and I really hope we get to see these two again in the rest of the series.

This book starts of with Sam who is naïve and young in a new city after escaping his brutal father.
He meets Aaron and there is a instant attraction between these two men.I loved how protective and caring Aaron was of Sam. Then there was Sam who was just so sweet!

They both fit so well together and you could feel the love these two men have for one another.

I thought the author did such a awesome job with the time period in this book! She pulled you in from the start of this story and I could not put this book down once I started it.

There was steam in this book and two men who grow closer together in their Dom/Sub relationship. The way that Aaron was so patient with Sam while teaching him everything was just so sweet!
So I will leave this review with….. I loved this book and would recommend it!
