A feisty, untrained Dominant shows up at Hampton Road. Could he be the right man who Colin’s been saving himself for?

Submissive Colin loves his new life and job at The Hampton Road Club. He doesn’t mean to make the staff angry when he reorganizes everything or frustrate the available Masters by never letting them touch him. He only wants to serve someone, to make them happy, but he’s also waiting for the right man the way his grandmother had advised him to do before she died.

Another night, another brawl. Roddy had hoped that Hollywood would have better male prospects than Louisville when it came to playing rough. When Roddy’s latest would-be conquest threatens him with bodily harm, Roddy is chased right into the path of two of Hampton Road’s Masters, Ned and Aaron. They describe a wonderful club to him, where sadomasochistic men can enjoy each other, hidden safely behind the walls of an elegant mansion.

The moment Colin and Roddy spot each other, they fall hard and fast. While Master Saul is thrilled that Colin has finally found someone, what do any of them really know about their new guest?

It seems that Saul’s fears are ungrounded until tragedy strikes in Roddy’s world. It’s then that the validity of Colin and Roddy’s new love is truly tested. Was their bond real, or did Roddy have another agenda he’d kept secret all along?

Begging to Serve is the fifth book in the Hampton Road Club series by author Morticia Knight. These should be read in order. Characters come back from previous books and the storyline builds as the series goes along. I did not, and I felt slightly lost on the character connection, couldn't figure out why they were sooo intensely focused on finding Colin someone. Like Colin was incapable of ever finding someone on his own. But I am betting had I read more in the series, this would have been clearer to me and felt less like Colin was five and his dads had to take care of him.
We have the story of Colin and Roddy. Colin I adored. Give me a twink who is bratty and I am a happy girl. Colin's way of helping people can come of as micromanaging. Which gets him into trouble. I particularly like the part of him rearranging the potatoes in the kitchen. He just is born to take care of his master. But he does not have one soo he takes care of everyone else.
Roddy is found by Aaron and Ned. They see him after he got into a fight in the alley. They were out looking for younger Doms so perhaps Colin could find one he liked, and stop causing chaos at the club. Roddy is a born Dominate, but he is not formally trained. This gets him into trouble when he starts a relationship with Colin. Lots of miss understandings. They do have real chemistry together and they are in the Ying and Yang of the other one.
Over all I really loved this one. Made me want more from the series in the future. But like I said read them in order helps a lot.
