My uncle abused me. I was 10 years old when it started. At 13 he told me I was no longer wanted because I had started to develop. At 16 I was ready to kill him. Today, I’m broken. Today, I only breathe to survive. My name’s Sergeant Major Ryan Jenkins and today, I’m ready to tell you my story. “Master would flog me if I did, she won’t be happy when I tell her what happened here.” “Master?” “Stella.” Oh, Master
I startle awake as I leap off the bed and sprawl on the floor. “Ry!” Mason yells from the other side of the door. I jump up off the floor and swing the bedroom door open. “You scared the shit out of me, Mason.” I run my hand over my eyes and face trying to wake up. “What do you want, man?” But I’m met with silence. When I look over at Mase, he’s staring at my body. He’s mouth’s open and his eyes are so wide. He rakes his stare down my body, then back up again. He lifts an eyebrow as he ogles me. I look down and notice I’m completely naked. I fell asleep on my bed with just the towel wrapped around me and he scared me with his bashing that now I’m standing before him totally exposed. He’s not moving away, and neither am I. “Mason.” I lower my voice as he looks up at me and just stares. He can see straight through me, totally bare and open, for him to see all my secrets. “We need to leave in an hour,” Mase says as he takes a step closer to me. I can feel his heat, and my body instantly reacts to him. Don’t be a coward Ryan, just reach out and touch him. His brown eyes turn from a hard brown into a molten chocolate as we stand a mere step apart from each other. Our breathing is labored and rapid. Mason reaches forward and brings his hand up to my chest, but before he touches me, his demeanor changes and he retracts it, dropping it beside his body. “I can’t,” he whispers as he turns away from me and goes into his bedroom. My head spins as I close my door and stand completely ashamed in my room. He doesn’t want me. Why would he? I’m broken.

This one is hard for me to review. I loved the story between Ryan, Mase & Stella. I hated reading about Ryan's abuse. I totally understand the need to know what happened to Ryan but as a mother reading about abuse of a child is hard. I didn't skip those memories but I had a hard time reading them.
Ryan has lived with the memories of abuse and is at the end of his rope. His memories of his abuse have overwhelmed his life. The one person who he feels connected to is his best friend Mase. He's wanted Mase for so long that this time when Mase visits he can barely stop himself from touching him. Mase wants Ryan too but he's involved....with a Domme.
Stella has helped Mase and now she may just get the chance to help Ryan too. The instant draw between Stella and Ryan confuses him. So does Mase's reaction to Stella. Ryan doesn't get the whole power exchange he just sees Mase's submission and it turns him on. Things between Mase and Ryan start to get hot but Mase holds back. Stella's demands keep them apart. Stella wants Ryan for herself.
Ryan decides to give Stella a chance, she says she can help him, release him from his past. The first time Stella and Ryan scene does not go well but Ryan finds the courage to try again. The chemistry between the two is sizzling and their relationship continues outside the dungeon. Ryan is still drawn to Mase though and the way both relationships progress is wonderful.
This book was a three and a half star read for me. I just can't give it more with the abuse scenes. If you find you cannot read about child abuse this book is not for you. The scenes are described and hard to get out of your head.
About the AuthorI don't do 'normal'. I've found that the more I write, the more I like being different to other authors. I write in first person, and I love to challenge a reader. I take the normal and switch it around. For me, I really enjoy getting a reaction from a reader. So if I can evoke an emotion (regardless of if it's the emotion the reader wants) then I figure that I've done my job as an author I want to be. I really quite revel in taking people out of their comfort zones and pushing them to read something different. My genre of writing is, well quite frankly, where ever my mind goes. I won't label myself because I don't like sticking to one genre. My goal with writing is just to take people away from whatever is going on in their lives, even if it's only for a split second. I'm a go with the flow sort of person and don't really take a course of action to get where I am going. I live in the moment and don't usually worry about tomorrow because whatever life is due to bring me, I'll be happy to accept. I love my family and friends and will help anyway I can if someone needs it. I really don't like people that are nasty just because they can be, I don't believe that's necessary, I mean life's hard enough as it is! I hope you enjoy my books, I've had a hoot writing them. There's more to come..... Til next time. M xx
