"SCARED" by Sarah Masters

Last night I finished this amazing book by the fabulous Sarah Masters. I'll confess it was a little out of my comfort zone. I tend to read in the evening and prefer to fill my head with sweeter  images than kidnap and sex trafficking. (Hot hunks chasing women is more my scene) - however once I started this story the characters kept swirling around my head. I had to know what happened to them, how would they get out of their dire situation. Also these few lines really grabbed my attention and sent a trickle of fear slithering over my scalp!

He chuckled at the naivety of some parents. Thought they were safe because they had sons. Thought only girls went “missing”. Little did they know, until their kid got taken, boys were more in demand. 

I found myself dipping into Scared during the day, devouring the pages on my lovely new Kindle, and I can assure you it did not disappoint. Ms Master's made a wonderful job of weaving a complex tale full of both evil and delightful characters. It's a love story, its sexy - of the M/M variety - incredibly suspenseful and will leave you thinking about another world, lurking beneath the surface of ours. I highly recommend it.

Here's the blurb

The gangster: Frost hires thugs to kidnap young boys and sells them to punters, making thousands in the lucrative sex trade. He needs taking down, but is anyone out there strong enough to do it?

The employee: Croft works for Frost, looking after the young boys held in captivity. He had been abducted himself, but Frost decided to employ him instead. Will Croft always do Frost’s bidding?

The witnesses: Russell and Toby needed finding. They’d witnessed far too much. Frost isn’t about to let them spill the truth on what he’s really doing on the outskirts of London.

One sex ring, two lovers, and a host of other people, all bound together. All scared.

Reader advisory: Contains dubious consent between adults.
