Review – Knight Or Daye © Jude Mason

Title: Knight or Daye

Author: Jude Mason

Publisher: Total Ebound

Main Characters: Jeremy Knight & Sam & Peter

A love lost, then found. Can Knight rescue his love or will Daye prevail?
Jeremy Knight lives with, and is in love with, Sam, a man who hides his submissive nature until, one fine evening, he asks Jeremy to dominate him. Jeremy is shocked, but does go along with his lover's request. It goes well - perhaps too well - overwhelming Jeremy. He leaves, gets wildly drunk and decides he can't abide the behaviour. Returning home, he tells Sam, who pushes his sub side down, for a while. He finally can't take it and leaves.
Devastated, Jeremy does some soul searching and discovers that perhaps Sam's desires weren't all that horrible. His own dominant side shows itself and he does as much research as he can to find himself.
Then he must find Sam. A cop friend of Jeremy's sees Sam in the company of 'someone of interest' to the police - Nathanial Daye, a very wealthy man who owns and sells people. The only trouble is they've never been able to prove it. When Jeremy decides to get into the picture, he winds up as the newest 'boy' in Nathanial's house. He finds Sam, who has fallen for another slave named Peter.
Can Jeremy rekindle the love Sam had for him? How will Peter fit into the picture? Can Jeremy find a way to rescue them all? Or will Daye win

 

Jeremy Knight stood outside of his lover’s door, his hands clenched at his sides, thinking about knocking, but not quite sure he was ready. Dark wood, marred at the bottom by water damage, was discoloured around the brass doorknob by what looked like years of handling. Beside a tall oak, two guards stood talking. On the other side of the drive, Jeremy knew there were others.

He looked back at the door. “Could use some TLC,” he mumbled and shifted from one foot to the other. The thong pulled tight up the crack of his ass. He squirmed, trying to readjust the strap without actually using his hands. It didn’t work. He knew it wouldn’t.

He looked at the door again and took a deep breath. It was now or never. Standing there any longer wasn’t going to help his indecisiveness. He raised his hand and knocked. Stepping back, he waited and his heart raced. He crossed his hands in front of himself, gripping one wrist. Head lowered, he eased his feet apart, shoulder width.

His decision was making itself known.

Jeremy watched the rise and fall of his chest, and worked on his patience. His hands grew slippery with sweat. His jeans felt too tight, his tank even tighter. The boots weighed a ton when he moved his feet. He clenched his fist then straightened his fingers, stretching them, trying to distract himself. Jumbled thoughts and desires plagued him. His cock pulsed, and he wanted to sooth the dull ache he’d been trying to ignore for the last hour.

Footsteps approached from inside.

Should he bolt, flee for his freedom?

He lifted his gaze, just enough to see the doorknob turn. The scarred door swung open, and he saw Nathanial’s long, jean clad legs, his groin. Jeremy looked down, focusing on the man’s feet. His mouth went dry.

“You finally decided to knock,” Nathanial said in the satin soft tone he knew made Jeremy shudder. Jeremy had told him often enough. Three months of telling.

“Yes. I didn’t realise you knew I was here.”

“’Course I did. I watched you drive in. I watched you come up to the door.”

Again, Jeremy shifted his weight from one foot to the other, incredibly aware of the thong holding his crotch a little too tightly. He forced his hands to remain where they were, not to tug at the too-fucking-tight cup, or the strap between his butt cheeks.

Review

Ms Mason take us out for a few days into the life of Jeremy Knight and his quest to find the man he love after they not only a misunderstanding but a period where he had to go through a whole paradigm shift in the way he thinks.

Jeremy is just on the verge of finding his lover Sam – the man he had lost due to his close minded attitude and his reluctant head refusing to capture what his heart has always known.

Jeremy does find Sam, but not in an ideal situation and Sam is not alone – but he is determined to get back the man he loves, even if he has to put himself in harms way to get the job done.

Sam is pleased to see Jeremy and even more satisfied that he has accepted some core truths about not only Sam but himself as well. Sam is caught up in a situation however along with someone very dear to him and now it seems as if Jeremy has been pulled into it as well. What Jeremy does not realise is that he must face Nathaniel Daye and he is the worse there is.

Jeremy has a plan however or at least he loosely has an idea of what he hopes to do – but they are all trapped under a madman’s thumb and he is not about to release the reigns anytime soon.

Mason is an author that pushes my boundaries; make me boil with rage as well have my arms open for the hurt or totally lovable characters she introduces me to.

And KNIGHT OR DAYE is no different, it’s a short story – so it cuts to the chase, and with enough emotional and sexual tension Mason gave me just what I needed – that spicy experience that just leaves me wanting more..

Released as a part of the Lust Bites set of books – KNIGHT OR DAYE has BDSM involved, men putting themselves in danger, heart wrenching tender moments and a windup that I could not have said any better….

Fan of Mason’s work this is certainly another adventure to be on with her, new fans, the prove is in the tasting.

Love your review, hon! I started reading this story this morning and the first page immediately sucked me into it. It's very well done and makes the story super sexy from the start! I can't wait to finish it tonight.
BTW Jude Mason is a new to me author and I bought this book because I know you're a fan of her work. Your taste has never been disappointing for me so far!
