MMy Logical Review: In the Name of the Father by Morticia Knight


In the Name of the Father

by Morticia Knight 

I was living a lie. I couldn’t be caught in my deception, or my family and friends would abandon me. But my fears became reality and I was cast away as if I were garbage. Then this man, a stranger, took me home and showed me that love can take on many forms, that I’m not filled with sin or doomed to go to hell because I’m gay. He showed me that I’m not broken. I don’t need to be fixed. What I need is to be nurtured and cared for.

This man showed me it’s okay to be his boy and to call him daddy…

Seth was a good Christian son raised in a very conservative church.

He learned early on that the world is evil and filled with sinners—but the most horrible thing you can be is gay. When his shame is discovered, he’s shipped off to a special camp that fixes deviants like him. Years have passed since then, yet he still runs from himself every day.

Malcolm was a good daddy for almost 10 years before his boy died.

No longer daring to be too close with another man again, he’s avoided clubs and old friends that remind him of a life filled with a joy he can no longer have. Unable to find a purpose in his lonely existence, he spends night after night in a dive bar at the edge of town. However, witnessing a scared young man being harassed by two bullies jolts him out of his misery.

No one messes with someone vulnerable and helpless on his watch…

In the Name of the Father
MMy Thoughts and Review:

This story was like a gentle breeze on a warm day. I remember when the ebook was first released several months ago how captivated I was by the cover. I knew from the keywords attached to the story I had to read it, so I added it to my Unlimited TBR…and there it sat…and sat…and sat…like so many other gems. YOU know what I’m talking about, don’t even try to deny it. So, when the Audio ARC came across my desk, I didn’t think twice, I requested it.

I always love being surprised by books. It is one of the biggest, if not the biggest reason why I don’t read the blurbs unless specifically asked to by the author. I went into Knight’s book thinking I was going to get an extreme hurt/ comfort tale with an intro to the kink world with a Daddy/ boy – D/s tropey kind of story. Plausible from the cover, keywords, warnings, and who the author was.

What I got was the most beautifully written romance, intimately told by Nick J. Russo, whom I simply adore as a narrator. Nick always brings an author’s story to life for me in a way that is so profound the characters live inside my heart and mind long after the story ends.

Yes, there is some major hurt/ comfort going on in this story. No, there is no significant D/s lifestyle, other than the gentle tug and pull, back and forth of the two MCs, Malcolm and Seth, embracing the roles of Daddy and boy. As they navigate the waters of their pasts, these men will learn what it means to trust again as they heal each other’s wounds together.

This story is one that will go in my “Keepers” pile. Though the themes of grief, homophobia, conversion therapy, religious zealots, and family ignorance and spite are mentioned throughout, they are not mentioned in detail or for shock value to the reader. So if you have stayed away because of any triggers you expected to find just know, I would rate this a: 2 out of 5 on a trigger scale. This however is my opinion alone. I cannot speak for others.

I loved this story. Absolutely loved it.💗

The Story: 4.50 🌟
The Narration: 4.50 🌟
Overall: 4.50 beautifully-scarred-strong-gentle-stars ✨✨✨✨.✨

I received a complimentary audio copy of this book from GRR in exchange for my review.🌈
