Synopsis

Master Thomas sees a submissive man aching for surrender if only Linus can be convinced not to fear The Hampton Road Club.

Linus never wants to return to Hampton Road after being attacked by a Master there. Even though he aches for the attention of Master Thomas—the one who he’d originally wanted—he isn’t sure he can ever trust another Master not to abuse him again.

Thomas is furious with himself for not protecting the beautiful young submissive whose company he’d enjoyed on a few occasions. He’s relieved that there have been some recent changes to help protect the men who offer themselves at the sadomasochism club. It’s about time to bring Hampton Road into the progressive age of the 1920’s. Now that the new rules are in place, perhaps he can woo Linus into giving him a chance.

As Thomas goes out of his way to be kind to him, Linus wonders if he’s misjudged the Master. He’s still not sure if there’s a future for them. What if he never wants to surrender to another man? When he allows Thomas to teach him the joys of Dominance and submission, Linus discovers that he not only wants to surrender, he wants to be claimed permanently. If only Thomas’ old life doesn’t come back to haunt them and destroy their chance of being together forever.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of figging and piercing.

Publisher’s Note: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series but can be read as a standalone.

Book 3 started with a small repeat of the ending with book 2.  Linus who was abused in book 2 is actually quite shy.  I just loved how Linus was so sweet and eager to get to know Thomas.  Thomas was very caring. I liked how Linus matured while being with Thomas. Their story was actually very sweet.  So far I liked Aaron and Sam the best but Thomas and Linus are a very close second.

Book 3 of the Hampton Road Club series is about Linus. He’s the sub abused by Preston in book 2. Kenneth and Saul saved him. He’s scared to become a sub again cause he doesn’t want to get hurt. How can he trusts Doms, when one hurt him?
Thomas, a Dom at the club has had an eye on Linus for a long while and he blames himself for not acting sooner and making Linus his. This is the usual formula of the delicate sub and the Dommy, but sweet Dom. They were cute, sweet and great together. Thomas didn’t give up and showed Linus that all Dom’s are not like Preston, that jerk. Linus really needed a break and I’m glad Thomas was there for him.
This serious is too cute and too sickly sweet, lol, but sometimes you just wanna read about stories like this.

This book was a good addition to this series!

Linus was hurt by Kenneth’s former Master and is now understandable afraid to go to the club. Thomas sees Linus as a man aching for surrender and wants to help him.

So to start of this review I will admit this book did take me awhile to get into at first and I am not really sure why. I did really like these two men together and I did like their characters too. I also loved how you got to see more of previous characters too. So I can not really explain why but this one just did not grab me like the previous books in this series did.

So I will leave this review with… I did like this book, there were just parts of this that did drag for me. I would recommend this series!

You can read this as a standalone but if you read the series in order it gives you backstory and gives you the full picture. I liked this book, Linus just tugged at my heart for some reason. As with the previous books the story at times was too wordy for me but this book did move at a faster pace. I loved the fact that Thomas was so patient with Linus but at times even I thought he was moving too slow for Linus, LOL. The feelings seemed more intense in this book, more real and I think that is why I enjoyed it a little more than the previous books. I am looking forward to the next book in the series, I really hope Evan gets his story and happily ever after.
