Blog Tour: Escape by Marita A Hansen

I received a copy of Escape, episode 5 in the My Masters' Nightmare serial, in exchange for my review.

Having escaped the Whore House with Jagger in tow, Rita returns to the house, to find a strange revelation come upon her, finally revealing the knowledge that was missing via her amnesia. Meanwhile Frano is determined to get his cousin back, and to destroy the family that destroyed him. But first he must deal with the issues in his own household, namely his brother's obsession over their cousin and the poor condition which Bianca was left in.

I can't say that I ever expected this series to draw me in quite as much as it did. It seems almost wrong to say that I enjoy it, but it has heaps of what I like from my books, politics and morally grey characters. I don't like goody two shoes, but nor do I like the big bad guy, a nice medium is perfect, and that is what these characters have. Though there are one or two that I would have something to say about!

There are two main questions going round my head after finishing this episode, the first is what Rita is going to do with her new found knowledge, or should I say newly remembered knowledge. And the other is what is going to happen between Jagger and Frano and the fact that both of them seem to want Rita. Lots of questions have been left open! And I don't think that I am quite ready for the series to be over!

This serial has really surprised me, in a good way. Though it is a serious problem that it deals with, it does it in such a way that makes it an interesting and enjoyable read, a none too easy feat!

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.
