Master…

Being that person, that man is how I define myself, how I allow the rest of the world to define me as well. And now, with a terrible loss shredding me inside out and someone trying to destroy my family to punish me, control is more important than ever. It is everything. It is what I need. It is all I need. Or maybe I just need…her.




Have you ever found yourself loving someone you were so bent on hating? Sucks musky hairy balls right? Like you want to gag but it's so good you don't want to let it go. Yup, that disgusting metaphor is what I BELONG TO YOU by Lisa Renee Jones did to me courtesy of the enigmatic, Mark Compton.

I'll cut to the chase, when I started this series I have no love for Mark, I've made up my mind about the man early on and decided he's a creep. However LRJones with her unending plot twists and turns decided to make Mr. Compton likable, heck lovable even! So much so that I want a solid spanking from the indomitable Mark Compton and it will be my pleasure to do so.

What can I tell you? I BELONG TO YOU can be read as stand-alone but if you're following the series and have read Mark's novellas, this is the culmination of his courtship with Crystal, the only woman he can't make submit the way he wanted her to. Or can't he? I love the tug of war between these two, Mark and his kink, Crystal and her vanilla ways. I found myself empathizing with Crystal from a romantic standpoint. I'm boringly vanilla but all I-Am-Woman-Hear-Me-Roar and I think I' too would have a problem signing that infamous contract relinquishing control to someone when I'm most vulnerable. At the same time I sort of get where Mark is coming from, BDSM for him isn't a frivolity, it's a necessity, it's his way of processing emotions, intimacy, etc. so it was a conundrum.

Of course they managed to figure it out, it was painstaking and it turned out to be such an emotional and affecting love story. There was some tension-filled back and forth between the two, the catharsis was difficult but necessary for them to meet in the middle. All I can say is Mark's at the right place at the right time, he's vulnerable in a lot of ways from Rebecca's death and his mother's battle with cancer and these things made him realize a lot of things. One can say that it opened the cold chambers of his heart and Crystal was available to help him warm it up. I so love the conclusion of this arc, it made me aww and squee!

As for the Rebecca's murder, the investigation is still ongoing and Mark is still a point of interest. The press is hitting him left and right not to mention many attempts to his reputation and life including Crystal's. LRJones has a knack for inserting thrilling situations like harassment, assault, bomb threats, perfectly timed devices to give us a well rounded suspenseful erotica. So you get a lot of BANG for your buck... Bang! Get it?

Anyway, I BELONG TO YOU is a masterful, heart pounding, sexy installment. I'm imagining this particular novel being played out on TV as the series is being developed by Starz, and if they do it right, it'll be one heck of a show that I'm sure a lot of people will get addicted to. I'm so happy that the books didn't stop after the third one as originally planned, I love the series so much and the story just keeps on expanding as more secrets are revealed and more players are roped in to this romantic but at times, sordid tale. Can't wait!

  10. I haven't started this series yet, but I have definitely enjoyed others by LRJones. I'm happy you loved this so much, Braine! And I actually think it's a real testament to good writing when I can go from hating to loving a character over the course of a series. Great review :)
