An Inside Out Novella in Mark’s POV
While Chris and Sara have traveled to Paris to avoid the chaos of press and police after the tragic night we’d shared, I have stayed to face the reality of what has happened. But there is no peace to be found in facing the truth, and no truth to be found in the confessions that have been made and retracted. I am a Master, all about control, and yet right now, facing great tragedy, I feel as if I have none. With my club and my relationships of the past in the spotlight, I find sanctuary in the one place I’ve promised I will never be again, but cannot seem to resist. Her arms.
***Mark and Crystal’s story begins in the novella Master Undone.
Since the novella, Master Undone, I have been dying to hear more from Mark’s POV. And while this novella is very short, I loved being back inside his head.
This story is broken down into 4 parts. Through each part, you experience the intensity of everything Mark is facing. From his Mother’s sickness, to his feelings for losing Rebecca, to the threat of accusations against him now for her death – I never fully trusted that bitch Ava – to his conflicting emotions for Crystal.
In all of ten minutes, we were naked, and she’d been screaming more, more, more. Demanding more, when it is I who demand. I who decide when and how, and what is satisfaction. There was not a submissive bone in Crystal’s body last night – or ever, for that matter – and I’d still wanted her.
What I enjoyed most about hearing Mark’s POV was how he, as a Master was struggling for control. With Rebecca gone, the woman he vowed to protect, the confidence he is meant to possess is rattled. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t try and regain that power, over the one person he knows won’t give it to him.
I’m so out of myself and into what this woman has me feeling that I don’t even care. And for the first time in nearly a decade, I lose myself in a frenzy of removing clothing. Hers. Mine. Ours.
The author packs a lot of intense moments into this quick read – making it the ultimate hump day quickie.
This novella also sets up the drama for the next book, No In Between, which does not seem to bode well for Mark or Sara. Based on some comments from Sara and Chris’ last book, His Secrets, I am VERY nervous. *begins pacing*
