Is A Bit Of An Ass And The Reader Learnsa bit of an ass and the reader learns the young Gray who did make mistakes It s not clear exactly how Gray changed for the better It is nfortunately depressing to see how bad Gray was for Trace In the present Gray is now an agent of good influence and tough loving support It s nice to the contrast between younger and older GrayOverall this story pulled many emotions from me Mostly my heart felt constant sorrow for several of the characters Because I felt for these characters I became engaged and enjoyed the story fully The BDSM is smoking hawt and enjoyable for me As a first book from Ms Kelling it rocks for me Recommended to read this series in order Definitely recommended for mm lovers who enjoy complicated BDSM pairings ARC provided by the author for an honest review Forgive Us introduces the Society of the Masters where Lynn Kelling kindly kidnaps my guys from Don t and does wicked things to them over in America We both came to the conclusion that reviewing each other s novels isn t something that you guys want to see of course we re both gonna say the works are than worth it Instead we thought we d offer two nice private interviews on each of our reviews of both Forgive Us and Antidote
Here I M TalkingI m talking Lynn about Forgive Us Hopefully it will help introduce what our novels are about and how they fit togetherThere s a full disclaimer before we start I receive no financial gain from Forgive Us Lynn receives no financial gain from how I se her characters in Breakdown and Gray Matters We share characters worlds and just have a whole load of fun in the processSo Lynn waggles eyebrows It s the start of the Society of Masters project combining two worlds that already have a firm footing with readersDeliver Us introduced everyone to Darrek and Gabe From Temptation then brought in Ben and Kyle and the very dark connections between Kyle and Darrek Forgive Us builds on that heated complexity and brings Trace and Micah into the mix What role do you think Trace takes in the dynamics of the whole group How does it impact on his personal life Lynn Trace is really the person tying everyone together Because Trace founded Diadem with Ben they met Gabriel Without Diadem Kyle would never have met Ben and Darrek wouldn t have met Gabriel And it s the specific set of circumstances created by Diadem which nearthed Kyle and Darrek s secrets in From Temptation It s all been one long domino effect of one piece knocking into another and another Forgive Us looks at the bigger picture of where all of the events so far have led because of things Trace has set in motion Trace is also the person who has established the group as of a family than a disjointed group of co workers or friends and there are complex reasons for why he s done that which are revealed in Forgive UsTrace definitely takes a paternal role in the group and not just because he s slightly older than the the group and not just because he s slightly older than the It s a conscious decision on his part to take responsibility for the safety of everyone he cares about or even the loved ones of people he cares about If something is wrong he tries to take action to correct the problem Sometimes he acts secretly sometimes not It s the increasing level of secrecy that really begins to affect his ability to manage everyone s troubles yet Gabriel Ben and Micah are leaning on him than ever The cracks have formed and it s only a matter of time before all of Trace s carefully guarded secrets come spilling outJack Can you tell s something about Micah How did he first meet Trace for exampleLynn Micah is a pretty complicated guy In order to nderstand how he ended p with Trace you have to know where he came from Micah is married to his first lo. Be Master and lover for Micah Trace is the one they all depend on to step in when anything or anyone threatens his closest friendsBut even Trace is in over his head when haunting events of the past endanger all their lives Trace is forced to call on old connections. What an amazing series I loved this story and the characters were absolutely incredible The way Lynn Kelling can weave a story line this intense and vast throughout the three bo My ReviewA ratingIn my opinion this is not a book that you can just sit down and read This is the third book in the series following this group of guys who all work at a BDSM club called Diadem There s a lot of backstory that leads into the story in this book so to fully Leaders Eat Last understand all that is going on you need to read the others in this series beforehand It would also be helpful to read Don t by Jack L Pyke which is AMAZINGLY good so you ll just want to read it anyway And the second part of this warningthis book and the entire series is hardcore erotica involving BDSM practicesThis book really starts with Trace as the central character Trace is the guy within this group that binds them all together He s the top Dom and guy who started Diadem Trace has a past from his time in Europe that he s buried but in this book it s caughtp to him And there are lots of past ghosts out there for all these six characters The fact of the matter is that they ended p in this lifestyle for a reasonthey all have some serious mental scars from their pasts In book two those all flared to life and the guys truly fell apart This book is the healing of all that and I enjoyed getting to see them finally overcome it all and become the really strong guys they are at their coremade even stronger by the ties that bind them all together And that truly is the heart of this book The ties between these guys They are a familya highly dysfunctional and sexual family lol but family nonetheless When something goes wrong for one of them they are all there to make it right and support each other in EVERY way possible Yeah you should probably know going into itthese guys have very committed partners but they ALL sleep with each other at some point in timeit s a very open group of guysThis book also creates the beginning of the cross over with Jack L Pyke s world that she created in Don t one of my absolute favorite books from last year I loved getting to see Jack Jan and Gray in this story and love what they add to the tension and suspense And there is a touch of suspense and drama to this one too Although I see MUCH of that to come with the story line they had going on in the background with the videos The two worlds are incredible apart but togetherLOVE Lynn Kelling did a great job writing Jack L Pyke s characters It will be interesting to see how the reverse goes for Jackbecause let s face it Lynn s characters are really messed p But I do love them with all their dysfunctionsI know this isn t the end for these guys but this is the third book in the series and it wrapped The New Competition up this particular set of story lines really well I liked the way it was all concluded and was very happy with the outcome on all the various threads of harmful relationships these guys have had along the way Kudos to Lynn Kelling for tying it allp VERY well Like many fans of Jack L Pyke I was a bit worried about Jack and Lynn Kelling crossing over their two series to create a new world The Society of Masters but I have to say my fears were allayed Lynn did good and the anticipation of them being on page had my heart racingReally really loved this one Can t wait for the the next seuel in the new Domestic Slavery Considered as a Scriptural Institution by Francis Wayland and Richard Fuller universe The Society of Masters Highly recommendedIf you want details read Moniue s wonderful review on Sinfully Sexy I re read the first two full length books to this series not long ago and I must say that I loved these men that Lynn Kelling gave tos the second time around But with this book I could not have loved any of them than I did Trace Micah and especially Dare had my heart fluttering and me reading as fast as I could even though I never wanted this book to end But not only did I have the great joy of spending time with Lynn s wonderful men I had the chance to spend time with three other very special men Forgive Us has some very special visitors and they are Jack Jan and Grey from Jack L Pyke s wonderful world that we all fell in love with in Don tAll in all this book was very close to perfect for me the only improvement would be Dare and Jack with a book that never endedLynn Kelling had written a few of my favourite books and this one is being added to that special list Crazy train tries to become a daisy chain The runaway train is brought back nder control as the insanity prevalent in the first two books in the series is dialed back That doesn t mean there isn t the wild carousel of acts
AND SURPRISE APPEARANCES IT JUST MEANS THE MAIN CHARACTERSsurprise appearances it just means the main characters t wielding deadly weapons against each others mental well being Enter Gray the calm in the storm and meet Trace as you ve never known himThere is a series crossover occurring with this book from Lynn Kelling s Deliver Us and Jack Pyke s Masters Circle Gray Jack and Jan are the stabilizing force in chaos of Diadem The synergy turns out well Gabriel and Darrek are still a mess Events paranoia and their own issues are driving that train And Micahyeah no big surprise that this is the implosion of the book The total disregard for mental health counseling is psetting beyond belief I HATE the se of BDSM in lieu of appropriate healthcare The situation in this book is something that reuired counseling and not talking about it is the problem and perpetuating the myth that the magic penis will save you is gross negligence in this instance Honestly the weakest point in this series for me has been that every character has been completely mental and in need of assistance and while it is addressed there is the implication that only persons suffering psychologically would be BDSM participants If this was levied against other groups it would be chastised and as entertaining as the series maybe I m going to call it on the mat What fun is in store Wax play sounding electric play medical play whipping strapping and the list goes on As sual the raw grittiness and sensuality of the sex scenes are the highlight of the book So plan some Me time when starting
Love The Scenes Andthe scenes and creativity and sadism but the story itself due to the sheer wtfuckery makes me disengage at times Before it was bed and fuck with your head roulette Now Gray is reaming Trace over his handling of Diadem and the boys Gray s running roughshot over everyone and everything That said there are some fun scenes as each person is run through and set straight Lives are torn apart and pieced back together again slightly differently And the suspense aspect of the story is ratcheted p big time including the psychological and physical torture Gray s
on top of everything Everything Let s just say some of the three letter agencies mentioned intop of everything Everything Let s just say some of the three letter agencies mentioned in seem to be a bit mixed p in regards to jurisdiction Overall of a suspense than melodramatic ending to the series which I appreciated Gray s appearance in the story toned down a lot of the absolutely mental behavior and substituted it with iron fisted Dom ination And manages to end with a pretty bow on it Wag of the finger to Ben s endeavor at the end of the story Something I really despise but thankfully it was reserved for the end and was minimally distracting but still annoying Author commentary about writing should be saved for another venue and not within the book one is writing I know it may not bug everyone but it is a major pet peeve of mine My rating was affected by my need and hopes after reading the series that the characters would find a good place in the end and I have to admit I was satisfied I strongly advise th.

emotionally Lilianna again tried to sate Micah s Quantum (Captain Chase unrest by bringing Trace into their marital bed so that they could have threesomes together Trace was also bisexualnattached and

Sounds like a complex web of lives and loves Now Forgive Us is the main novel in the Society of Masters project Can you tells a little about the SoM project What is it exactlyLynn The Society of Masters project is the merging of the worlds of the Deliver Us series and the Don t series That means all of the characters from both series Gabe Dare Trace Micah Gray Jack and Jan to name a few all exist in the same Perilous Love (Sinful Souls MC universe on the same timeline A few of them share history which you ll learn about in Forgive Us and all of them will be interacting with each other in a lot of different ways across multiple worksSomething many of my readers might not yet realize is that most of my books exist in the sameniverse and there are subtle connections sprinkled across them to Children of Blood and Bone unite the storylines Forgive Us is directly connected to characters and organizations in Whatever The Cost and my forthcoming release Song of the Lonesome Cowboy The Society of Masters project means that this broadniverse just got a hell of a lot bigger by also encompassing the brilliant work of my co conspirator Jack L Pyke and the Don ti series It opens doors to endless tantalizing possibilitiesJack What plans do you have for the Deliver Us seriesLynn My next two releases in the Deliver Us series will be preuels both of which will be included in a forthcoming

the present and future of the group They ll begin to look outside their small circle for help support and friendship from the larger BDSM community around them There will also be tie ins with a few of my other novels including Whatever the Cost Song of the Lonesome Cowboy Bound by Lies and my forthcoming book Loving the Master a spinoff of Bound by Lies with David and Shea David was also trained by

(MacDougall Legacy Book 1) uniue voice shine through clearly and weaving all of the threads of the plot together in a seamless way that wasn t overwhelming Because of that I listened to a lot of music
