Rune Tooby is a smartassed Jewish rebel and closeted gay biker with the Born Soldiers motorcycle gang. Rune’s life centered on casual sex and less-than-legal employment, until a pickup truck full of Neo-Nazis rammed into his bike, destroying his hearing and shattering his life. Learning to live deaf and silent overwhelmed Rune, sending him to humbly beg help from the last people he trusts completely: the rich and powerful Dominants of the Manse, who trained Rune in the arts of BDSM.

Oliver Hughes, cocky day trader and sexual Dominant, lives a life of indulgent luxury. Despite this, he feels adrift and unneeded since his beloved submissive, Jackson Whitney, became absorbed into life as a family man and cardiologist, leaving him little time for his Master. When a meeting between Rune and Oliver is carefully arranged by the leaders of Manse, it starts a wild ride, sweeping up everyone who gets too close to the explosive pair. Rune and Oliver find themselves on a path filled with frustrating miscommunications, rage-filled vengeance, and painfully unearthed secrets. (M/M/M)

    I love the characters from the Society of Masters Universe and Lynn Kelling’s latest novel, Hush, is one of the best. There’s a rougher edge to this one. (I know, I can hear other die-hard fans scoffing and wondering how that could even be possible, but it’s true.) The dimensions Kelling explores in the D/s relationships in this story are deeper, darker, and more intense than I’ve known her to go before. At times this book is a difficult journey, but it’s one worth taking because the payout is spectacular. Just a note: while the characters in Hush appear in other Society of Masters novels, you can read this one as a standalone. And if this is your first experience with the stories of Lynn Kelling, just sit back and enjoy the ride.

    Hush has all the things I love most about Lynn Kelling’s writing: the way she explores the psyche of her characters, the intense and beautifully written BDSM scenes, and the social commentary with a hopeful message. Kelling delves deep into the hearts and souls of these men. They bare themselves completely and connect on the purest, most primal level. They find a way to work through the damage, transform themselves, and make their lives worth living.

    The targeted victim of a hate crime, Rune Tooby is now permanently deaf, scarred, and feels unable to interact with the people in his life. He realizes he’s at his breaking point and reaches out to David Davenport, the Master Dominant at the local BDSM club, for help. Rune realizes he needs to get his rage under control or it will destroy him. In his words, “‘He wanted someone who’d take all of his shit without batting an eye, turn it around, and use it to keep him in place, where he’d be safe, seen, and understood.’” This is his last line of defense to reclaim a life for himself.

    I admire Rune so much. Yes he’s a victim, but he owns his damage, wears it openly, and seeks out his healing in a proactive way. He’s learning sign language and lip reading skills, plus trying to deal with all the insecurities and doubts that come with losing his hearing. Rune is a proud, determined man and he’s going to make sure his new Dom earns his submission, and cherishes it when he does.

    David believes the right Dom for Rune is Oliver Hughes. When they meet the chemistry between the two men is intense and completely irresistible. Rune shows Oliver straight-off that he’s not easily intimidated, and Oliver is definitely intrigued. Oliver needs a sub who challenges him, and he wants someone to conquer and keep.

    The major conflict between the two men occurs when Rune comes clean about the details of his attack. Having a history, as he says, of “‘sticking up for the underdog,’” Rune can’t allow these bigoted abusers to continue hurting people. Plus he wants his revenge. Despite Oliver’s repeated orders to leave it to the police, Rune enlists the help of his motorcycle club to stop the white supremacist group who tried to kill him. Here’s where it starts to get really intense.

    While initially I was unsettled by the way Oliver handles Rune’s punishment for defying his orders, I ended up going back over the book, looking for insight into why it’s so extreme. I was satisfied by what I found. And while it definitely tests the limits of both characters, they need it, it works for them, and the process is part of the healing.

    The thing that really lingered with me, and the reason I absolutely had to reread Hush, is the incredible transformation Oliver makes over the course of this story. He admits at the beginning to being frustrated with his life, longing to find a purpose and having a desire to be truly needed. Oliver wants to make a life with someone.

    It’s so beautiful to watch what happens to Oliver as he and Rune connect, how he affects Rune and what he’s able to do for him. When Oliver realizes the enormity of what Rune is giving up to him, what his surrender really means, it changes everything for Oliver. It was incredibly moving for me.

    While you can enjoy Hush on its own, the characters from the Manse series all have dark and wonderful stories to tell. I definitely recommend them and, fingers crossed, Lynn Kelling plans to give us many more!
