The Slave by Kate Aaron

My edition: Owned
Series:Free Men #1
Rating: 3 stars

Freedom is only an illusion.

At twenty-seven, Tamelik has been a slave more than half his life. Submissive by nature, he can’t help but fall in love with the master who treats him kindly.

When the mistress walks out, Tam dares to hope his love will be enough.

Then he’s ordered to purchase another slace.

He wants to hate Kai for being unruly and ungrateful. For being of the same race as the men who murdered his family. For being his eventual replacement in their master’s bed. But it’s hard to hate a man who cries himself to sleep, flinches at the slightest touch, and blushes beautifully when he’s kissed.

Review: So this is my second series of M/M.

Tam has lived half of his life with the Master. He hasn’t known anything else but the Master’s kindness. One day the Master has Tam go in his place to bid on a new slave. Tam rejects most of the slaves that were brought in front of him and a group of lords. When Kai comes up, Tam knows his future will be bad because he was a soldier. Tam also knows that Kai is to old to be tamed. Feeling the need to, Tam purchase him.

Kai doesn’t like that he was bought as a pleasure slave. He hates it. Tam thinks Kai should be grateful that he was saved from an even more horrible fate. Unlike Tam, Kai has known of being a soldier, which Tam likes to point out that wasn’t much different from being a slave. Taking orders, doing what are told to do even though you don’t want to do it, Tam tries to show that to Kai.

The Master is all that Tam loves. He wants to please the Master no matter what, even when the Master starts to hint that Tam and Kai should be together.

Kai was adorable to me. I love how he started getting more protective of Tam. Even at the times he seemed to challenge the Master, he seemed to want to go alpha but he knew where Tam’s heart was but it didn’t seem to stop him.

Tam and Kai’s relationship was so damn cute. (Mostly due to Kai.) I wasn’t a big fan of Tam. I felt like he was a whiny teenager. I love this story and will continue on with the next book, The Soldier.

Me being me!

Happy Monday Everyone!!!!

How was everyone’s weekend? Mine was fine. I didn’t get as much reading done as I wanted to but that is okay. I started The Vampire Lestat, Ruby Red, and Blood Lock. I finished one book which was Burning Bridges, the book before Blood Lock. I might take a small break before I dive into Blood Lock. I got to chapter 2 and really didn’t want to move on but I think it’s because I am burnt out on the series. So I think I will take a break from the Legends of Regia. What have you started and/or finished this weekend?

How many of you are Walking Dead fans? What are your prediction of what is going to happen?

I am trying to hate Negan but he’s got some of the best lines. The actor who plays him isn’t bad looking either. I wish he was more like the Governor because then I could hate him easily. No he’s got to be the funny a$$hole.

Anywhozer I hope all of you have a great week.

Burning Bridges by Tenaya Jayne

My edition: Kindle Unlimited
Pages: 202
Series: The Legends of Regia #4
Rating:3 stars

The deadly game continues… Kidnapped, tortured, and used as bait, Forest’s life hangs in the balance as Copernicus moves forward to claim the throne. In the shadows, an army of slaves, waits to deal Regia’s new republic a killing blow.
After the insurgent’s first strike, a wave of rage builds through the races. No one is ready to lay down and hand Copernicus what he wants. But time is running out for Syrus to save Forest and their baby.
Turned into a drone, and weighed down with guilt, Redge tries to break free of the grasp of the insurgents. The only person who can help him is the woman of his past.
Lives will be lost, reluctant heroes will rise, and past flames will be rekindled. Regia must rise against Copernicus, but on the horizon, an even dark shadow lengthens over the land.

Review: Well Tenaya Jayne…


That is a horrible way to end a book. I wanted to throw, yes throw, my kindle. What the hell? Good thing the book after this is already out. I mean who does that?

It was horrible to see Redge under the control of Copernicus, but he did have a HEA (till the next book) in this book. Journey kind of has a crappy job/ power. To read people’s hearts and tell everything they’ve been through and what they are feeling, I’m surprised she is sane.

Copernicus was total demented. He was this bipolar, psychopath, father issue having assassin. I also wonder what happened to Shreve.

Good thing I have the next book on my kindle and don’t have to wait. I would have been very angry then.
