Title: The Fear of Surrender (Hampton Road Club #3)
Author Name: Morticia Knight

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.

Review

ThreeandHalfStars

This book was not one of my favorites from her. Linus is a young sub who had a terrible experience by the abusive “Master” that we saw last book.  He is incredible timid and shy, not a strong sub like we’ve seen in the other characters throughout this series.
Thomas is a Dom, but he is so careful when it comes to Linus that it almost seems like he is willing to put his Dom side away, just so he doesn’t scare Linus.
These two characters danced around each other so much. What could have been a really great relationship turned out to be less than spectacular. It was more of a courtship and the substance was just not there for me.
Despite that, I enjoyed reading this continuation of the series.

AuthorBio

Erotic Romance author Morticia Knight enjoys a good saucy M/M or M/M/F tale, whether it is contemporary, paranormal, historical, Sci-fi or BDSM – she loves it all! One of her passions is bringing people’s fantasies to life on the page, because life is too short for even one boring moment. Her stories are volcanic in heat, deep in emotion, and sprinkled with doses of humor. When not indulging in her passion for books, she loves the outdoors, film and music. Once upon a time she was the singer in an indie rock band that toured the West Coast and charted on U.S. college radio. She is currently working on a seven-book series called Gin & Jazz set in 1920’s Hollywood, and Uniform Encounters 4.
