BOOK 1: HESITANT HEART:





AWW SWEET SAM! THIS IS SO HIM!! HERE IS MY REVIEW:


                       Hesitant Heart (The Hampton Road Club #1) by: Morticia Knight
                                                                    reviewed by: Becky



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?



When you give me tasteful, classy BSDM I melt, when you give it to me set in the 1920's, forget it, you are scraping me up like last nights candle wax! This series is just wonderful, captivating and original with a BSDM theme that will make you want nothing but more!

Sam is a sweetheart that is fleeing a dire home life and finds himself in a not so great job situation, and Aaron wants to help the sweet lad, but to his dismay he finds himself wanting to do so much more than that!

Can Aaron and Sam work out their kinks (so sorry, had to do it ;p ), and find a way to get through the past that haunts Sam, to the future Aaron never thought he wanted?

This is a MUST read, I can't wait for you to fall into the story like I did, you met some of the characters in the Gin & Jazz series, which I hope you read, and if you didn't you must make time to do that! Grab Hesitant Heart and dive in, it is one you will re-read very soon! Thank you Morticia, for giving me more of what you delivered with Gin & Jazz, a timeless story set in a timeless age!

I JUST HAD TO DO THAT RATING IN HONOR OF AARON'S CAR, (AND YES I KNOW, I WANT ONE TOO) HERE ARE THE BUY LINKS:




HERE IS A SHORT EXCERPT:

“Don’t be ashamed to admit that you need the comfort of another person.” Aaron’s tone had softened. “Everyone does.” Sam gasped. “Even you?” There was the barest hint of a smile on Aaron’s lips, but it seemed to be tinged with a melancholy. “Even me, little Sam.” His head was alive with all kinds of thoughts and questions. He needed to know more about Aaron, everything he possibly could. Swallowing hard to try to relieve the dryness in his throat, he then took a deep breath to give him the courage to ask his next question. “So…do you have anyone?” He was sure his cheeks were a bright red, but he wouldn’t back down. He had to know. “I mean, so that you’re not lonely?” 

AWESOME HUH? NOW ONTO BOOK 2: 

THE RULES OF LOVE: THE HAMPTON ROAD CLUB BOOK 2:




YES! THIS ONE IS FOR KENNETH! HERE IS MY REVIEW:


       The Rules of Love (The Hampton Road Club #2) by: Morticia Knight
                                                              review by: Becky


Master Saul is captivated by the beautifully submissive Kenneth and the boy’s love of pain. Unfortunately, Kenneth belongs to Master Preston.

It’s 1926 and as one of the founding members of the Hampton Road Club, Master Saul Liebowitz has enjoyed the charms of many willing submissives over the years. One of the newer submissives to the club has captured his attention more than anyone has in a long time. Kenneth is tall, muscular and also seems to have a greater love of pain than most. If only Kenneth didn’t already belong to another Master.

After Kenneth’s Master died years before, he allowed himself to be taken in by the promises of Master Preston. As time has gone by, Preston has become increasingly crueler to the point where Kenneth fears for his life. They’ve recently joined a sadomasochism club and Kenneth can’t help but yearn for the handsome Master the other boys speak so highly of—Master Saul.

Preston takes things too far one night, and when Saul and his good friend, Master Aaron, do some investigating, they realize that Kenneth might be in real danger. Amidst turmoil at the club over whether there should be rules to keep the boys safe and Preston’s play for power, Saul searches for a way to save Kenneth from what he’s sure is a deadly situation.

Both men fight for what they believe to be the right thing. When they find their way to one another, a wonderful new world opens up to them. But there’s one man out there who refuses to let go of the old ways. Kenneth is his property and Master Preston won’t give him up.


I was so excited to read this book right after finishing the first, little did I know Morticia would rip my heart out and stomp on it for good measure, but I must admit, I loved every minute of it!

Kenneth will just wrap around your heart like a vice, a very sexy, pain tolerant vice! He may love pain, but not enough to enjoy what his sadistic master Preston does to him! He knows he needs to get away from Preston, and there is only one place he wants to go...straight to Saul!

Saul longs for the lovely, captivating submissive, but he belongs to another master. The more he uncovers about Preston, the more he is convinced that Kenneth should be his! 

Boy oh boy this one is a work of art, I was cruising along happily toward the happy ever after, and BAM derailed at the overpass, holy crap but she threw me a whammy! No worries though, Morticia put the train back on course and all was well again! Read this one, you will be just as shook up but satisfied as I was!

 Thanks Morticia, for giving us a book that may takes us out of our comfort zone, but boy do we enjoy the ride!


                                                     the 5 padlock necklace rating


I HAVE A REASON FOR THAT RATING I PROMISE! HERE ARE THE BUY LINKS:




HERE IS A LITTLE EXCERPT:

The screen of the back door slammed shut, so he knew Preston was on his way to free him for whatever services he would require. He quickly hid the used rag behind some garden tools and pretended to still be asleep. “Good God, you are one of the laziest, most pathetic creatures I’ve ever come across.” He pretended that Preston’s words had roused him from a sound sleep by rising slowly and rubbing his eyes. Preston squatted next to him to undo the lock on his chains. “Look alive. I have a busy day ahead of me and don’t have time for your nonsense. Get inside, use the bathroom then make yourself something to eat. You have a half hour before I chain you again, so make the best use of your time.” “A half… I’m to be left in here alone all day?” Preston narrowed his eyes at him. “No, you imbecile. Do you think I’m that stupid? You’ll be in the attic where I know that no one can hear you if you scream for help. Don’t think I don’t know how ungrateful and untrustworthy you are.” 

YES, YES I KNOW, YOU WANT TO READ IT NOW, AS YOU SHOULD ;), HERE IS THE INFO AND A SHORT EXCERPT FOR BOOK THREE:


   The Fear of Surrender (The Hampton Road Club #3) by: Morticia Knight


Master Thomas sees a submissive man aching for surrender. But can Linus 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 1920s. 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.



AS I SAID I AM STILL READING THIS ONE, BUT OH BOY IS IT AWESOME SO FAR! REVIEW TODAY OR TOMORROW: HERE ARE THE BUY LINKS: 




NOW FOR A SMALL EXCERPT:

It had been a huge relief to see Kenneth at the club, to know that he really was okay and was free from Preston Cornwall for good. Linus smiled to himself, remembering how sweet it had been when Saul and Kenneth were reunited at the end of the night. There had been gentle touches and softly spoken words. It was clear that Saul cared deeply for Kenneth and Linus had never seen his friend look so happy. Musing over how being back at the club had made him feel, he was rather surprised that it hadn’t been more upsetting. If he was being truthful with himself, he would have to admit it was because of Thomas. The Master had stayed by him the entire time and had led all of them up the back stairs so that Linus wasn’t confronted by anyone else, nor did he have to face seeing the main area. It only added to his inner battle as to whether the club was so bad after all.


I CAN'T WAIT TO FINISH THIS BUT FIRST LET ME SHOW YOU THE COVER  AND BLURB OF BOOK 4, OUT IN MAY!!

MASTERING LOVE: THE HAMPTON ROAD CLUB #4:


And here’s an exclusive sneak peek at Book 4 from The Hampton Road Club – Mastering Love (Available on early download May 8th):

Evan sees a Master who could be his whole world and Ned sees a beautiful boy in need. But shattered trust and broken hearts could keep them apart forever.

Evan landed on his ex-Master’s doorstep after Master Gabriel dumped him for a virgin. He’d hoped Thomas would take him back, but he’s moved on with his new submissive, Linus. Evan has nowhere to go and barely a penny to his name. Fortunately, Master Aaron and his boy, Sam invite him to stay at their guesthouse. Alone and abandoned, Evan aches for a Master who can give him more – if only he knew what ‘more’ meant.

Master Ned has finally decided to settle down in one place after traveling on the road for years. He’s always loved the Hampton Road Club – it’s a private sanctuary for men such as himself. The roaring twenties might be freer than ever, but the decadence of the sadomasochistic club could put its members in danger if they’re not discreet.

Ned’s on the lookout for an untried boy who’s ready to fully submit to him on a daily basis. In return, he plans to train and care for his submissive. If he can also find love, then his life will be perfect.

After Evan is introduced to Ned at the club, they have an intense encounter that catches them both by surprise. What should lead to a possible future for them as Master and submissive is destroyed when Ned mysteriously casts Evan aside. Evan wonders if he’ll ever be good enough to keep a Master and Ned fears he may have lost the best thing that ever happened to him.

Shattered trust and broken hearts have to be repaired before Evan and Ned can find their way to each other – if it’s not already too late.
