I HAVE FOR YOU MY REVIEW OF MASTERING LOVE, BUY LINKS, AND EVEN A SHORT EXCERPT: SO LET'S GET STARTED:
I LOVE THIS QUOTE, AND IT IS SO TRUE! HERE IS MY REVIEW:
Mastering Love (The Hampton Road Club #4) by: Morticia Knight
reviewed by: Becky
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.
This is one of my favorite series, and I was so looking forward to Ned and Evan's book, and boy did it deliver on every front! Morticia Knight has a way of bringing you into the lives of her characters and making you feel what they feel, and in this book you felt everything.
Evan made a mistake when he took off with Master Gabriel, but when he is dumped at his ex- master Thomas's doorstep, Thomas has moved on. Regretful and a little bit broken, Evan longs for the Master that is just perfect for him.
Ned is glad to be settling down after a life on the road travelling, and he goes to the Hampton Road Club looking for a boy that may become the perfect submissive, when he finds Evan. The encounter these to have is off the charts, and should have led to so much more, but Ned balks, and once again Evan is left thinking he is isn't good enough.
Can Ned repair the damage he has done by casting Evan aside? Why did he do it? When he figures out the depth of his mistake will it be to late to make it right? Man you have to read this one friends, I love that it is set in the '20s, and Morticia does a bang up job making it authentic!
Ned and Evan's story is one that needs to be read, and when you do, I have no doubt it will become a favorite! Thanks Morticia, for another wonderful book in this series that has captured so many hearts already!

DON'T MISS THIS ONE FRIENDS, HERE IS A SMALL EXCERPT FOR YA!
Evan was more relaxed with him and Ned was thrilled. He wasn’t trying to put on a big show for Ned anymore. There was no doubt that he remained submissive to Ned and was definitely intent upon pleasing him, but he was no longer doing it for effect. It was from his heart. “How much do you like sweet things?”
Ned found he got a lot of enjoyment out of detecting the slightest of reactions from Evan. The faintest of twitches, crease of his brow or sudden inhalation were all treasure maps that guided Ned to the true essence of the young man. “I like them quite a lot, Sir.” “I do too. I like candies and cakes. They’re decadent things. There’s so much pleasure in their richness. But I also love the taste of a delectable man’s skin, the tender flesh of his lips as I explore them with my tongue.” Ned lowered his gaze. Evan had hardened nicely, the head of his cock deepening into a glorious shade of red. He lifted his eyes then continued. “What about strawberries, Evan? Would you like it if I bit off the end of one then dipped it in the sugar? The juice would collect a hearty amount of the crystals—there would be plenty for me to paint your lips with. Perhaps the light scrape of the hard crystals would make your mouth very sensitive to touch. Then I would have no choice but to lick you clean before I painted them again.” Evan’s steeled erection leaked and Ned knew the answer. However, he still waited for the boy’s response. “I would like that quite a bit, Sir.” His voice had been just above a whisper.
Ned picked up a plump berry then bit into it. He did as he’d said he would, rubbing it slowly across Evan’s mouth. To his credit, he didn’t attempt to swipe away the sugar with his tongue. He remained absolutely still. Ned leaned forward then tasted Evan’s lips. He remained passive, made no attempt to kiss or aid Ned in his exploration. Ned moved over and over Evan’s soft lips until every granule had been lapped up. “
