    Master of the House, Justine Elyot Review from Jeannie Zelos boo

    Master of the House, Justine Elyot
    Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
    I've never read any of Justine's novels ( so many books, so little time...) but knew she wrote erotica, and I do love that genre so thought this would be a good choice. I was right, its a great read, well written, sexy and with a good back-story. That's essential to me, I don't want just sex sex sex but a solid plot behind it.
    So Lucy, after a relationship breakup she's back in her home town, living with her hippy mum and mum's boyfriend animal. Says it all...She's struggling, working for the local newspaper, covering town council meetings and fête openings is hard after being a respected political journalist in Hungary. Still, its work and she can find her way back if she sticks it out and waits for the right opening. Then she learns that a) something strange is going on periodically at the local Hall, and b) her nemesis Joss, is now Lord of said Hall after the death of his father and is back in residence.
    I loved Lucy and her hippy mum. Joss too – we first see him as a real jerk, a nasty bully, then once he and Lucy are together again we start to learn more about him and a different side is revealed. Lucy has worked hard to get where she is, her mum is lovely but a bit dippy and seems to spend a lot of time smoking weed....and it sounds as if she has always been like that even when Lucy was a child. A kind of role reversal with Lucy being the responsible one and mum being the child. I enjoyed the way the story bounced from present to past and then back again. Sometimes that doesn't work for me, when its for long sections of a novel, I get so engrossed then have to reset my mind to a different time but here its fairly brief, a chapter or so in the past then back to the main story of the present, and what Joss and Lucy are doing. There are some very hot and sensual interludes, fun D/s stuff and its fits well within the story. I thought I’d worked out what was going to happen, it seemed to be taking a predictable route towards the end and then... it went totally in a different direction and totally surprised me :-) I love that, when a story diverges and catches me out. Makes it so much more interesting. Its a reasonable length to let the story be told properly at around 200 pages. Good stories need at least that to really get me engrossed.
    Stars: Four. A fun read, hot and sexy, spicy and erotic. I'll certainly look out for more of Justine's writing.
