Review Tour: Trapped by Ruby Moone #Review #Giveaway

Buy Links: JMS Books | Amazon US | Amazon UK

Publisher: JMS Books

Length: 62,000 words


Sam Holloway is a desperate man. Trapped in Dante’s, the high-class London brothel catering to men who love men, his only hope is to find a rich protector. Then he meets the young aristocrat with sad eyes.

Tristan Barrington, sixth earl of Chiltern, waited until the death of his father before acting on his unnatural desires. Dante’s has a reputation for quality and absolute discretion. He never expected to find in its sordid depths a glorious man who could master not only his body but his heart, as well.

In Tristan, Sam sees an opportunity to flee a life he hates, and he sets his sights on seducing the earl. Tristan vows to help him escape, but in the process not only uncovers the vile corruption at the heart of Dante’s but also suspects that Sam’s declaration of love was nothing but a lie.

Then Sam is gravely injured, and Tristan faces a tough decision -- leave Sam to his fate, or help him once again?

Companion book to The Wrong Kind of Angel but can be read as a standalone. HEA.


Another historical hits it out of the park!

I loved these two guys and how they were opposites in so many ways in a time that already made being together difficult. Sam was a prostitute that worked in a brothel run by a cruel man. Tristan is an Earl and well to do. Sam was kicked out by his father for being caught with a boy and many bad decisions are made landing him in a dangerous situation. Sam comes from a wealthy family, although not loving, it was normal for his status in life. Sam wanted escape, Tristan wanted love.

Both are still trying to find a way through their own lives that would bring them some happiness. Tristan and Sam have so much to learn about each other and they are not good at communicating. There are hurts, deceptions, and struggles all added to the fact that since Sam escaped the brothel he and Tristan are being hunted by Mosely, the right hand man and all around bully, to the owner of the brothel.

I loved the cast of characters from good to funny to bad to cruel. Each one bringing a layer to an already well written love story. The settings from the brothel where they met, to the apartment that Tristan set Sam up in, to the house party they go to, all were beautifully described and help set the scene for the time period. There is romance, angst, drama, and suspense each making you turn the next page and both want to see what happens next and never want to leave their world.

The ending was truly satisfying and well thought out bringing us a true HEA for the times. Alfie and Gareth had some serious tension going on and I hope the author decides to write their story. I know that this is the second book in the series but it reads as a standalone. But it was so well written I would love to get book one with Charlie and Harry!

Author Bio

My name is Ruby Moone and I love books. All kinds of books. My weakness is for romance, and that can be any kind, but I am particularly fond of historical and paranormal. I decided to write gay romance after reading some fantastic books and falling in love with the genre, so am really thrilled to have my work published here. The day job takes up a lot of my time, but every other spare moment finds me writing or reading. I live in the north west of England with my husband who thinks that I live in two worlds. The real world and in the world in my head...he probably has a point!
