Blog Tour: Discovered by Marita A Hansen

I received a copy of Discovered in exchange for my review, it is episode 2 in the My Masters' Nightmare serial.

Picking up where episode 1 left off, Rita has been taken away from Jagger, and given to Franco, so that he can break her himself. Even worse than that, Rita soon discovers that her identity as an FBI agent is known, and for Franco that makes breaking her an even bigger pleasure. Much to Rita's surprise, she discovers that she doesn't hate sex with Franco as much as she thought she would. But things are about to have a big upheaval in the household...

This book contains scenes of a sexually explicit and potentially distressing nature, and in most, if not all, cases the sex is not consensual. I've never actually read sex before that was actually so unsexy. The thing about it is that the story is about cracking a sex ring, which would mean that if sex like that wasn't included then it would be an unrealistic story. Not that that makes it any easier and more comfortable to read!

Something that still really gets me about this series is how sorry I still feel for Jagger, as he is trapped doing a job that is, quite frankly, evil. And that's not to mention his past, the past that seems to be coming back for him. The way that his character was written really shows the author's understanding of the concept that there is good and bad in everyone, which is again something I wasn't expecting from characters involved in human trafficking.

I'm not too sure how I'm feeling about Rita though after episode 2. After the first episode I reflected on her strength of character, but now I'm not too sure, she did a couple of things in this episode that made me think she wasn't as strong as she appeared to be, but I guess I'll have to wait and see!


Synopsis

I didn't see it coming, didn't realize how different everything would be within the space of a month. I would fall in love with one man, I would kill another, and I would lose my body, my mind, my soul - my freedom to them. I was an operative, a strong woman, someone sent in to save others, but under these two men I became weak - or pretended to be. I didn't like being weak, it angered me. If I had free rein I could cut my masters in two. But I wasn't there for pride, I was there to free those women and to take down the two men who sold them as sex slaves.
Those men needed to be punished
And I would do it
No matter the cost
Or how much I lost
Because I am Rita Kovak
MY MASTERS' NIGHTMARE

Excerpts

"I walked into the hotel bar knowing there was a strong chance that I would be drugged and kidnapped by the end of the night. Which was exactly why I was there." Rita Kovak “I now own your body, your mind, your soul,” he whispered. “You are mine to do as I please. I’m your master, your god, your nightmare...” Jagger D'Angelo speaking. Sneering, he ran a hand over his chest, abs, and cock, cupping his balls. “You want me, we both know it; so you use any excuse to touch my body.” Frano D'Angelo speaking.
