Erryn reviews ‘Ferron’s Journey Part 1: Damaged (The Playroom Book 4)’ by JP Sayle. The ebook was published June 4, 2020 and is 186 pages. The audiobook version of this story was narrated by Matt Haynes , released on July 31, 2020 and is 4 hrs and 10 mins long. A copy was provided for an honest review.

Why Erryn read this book: I love this series.


Can the damage done by another be reversed, after Ferron makes the biggest mistake of his life?

Ferron Robertson is a lost soul searching for someone and something to connect with after suffering great loss. In The Playroom, he finds his center in submission and the grief he lives with becomes easier to manage. 

That is, until he makes a fateful mistake. 

Life for some is never an easy journey and after being rejected in the one place he feels safe, Ferron goes somewhere that is anything but safe to him. Now he must battle not only himself, but the Dom who refuses to let him go. 

Ferron’s Journey: Damaged Part One, The Playroom series, is an MM gay suspense with BDSM and a cliffhanger ending. This is the first part of a trilogy and written from Ferron’s POV. 

Warning: This book has aspects of a non-consensual relationship, with possible triggers due to scenes of abuse.

My Review: 

This book comes with a trigger warning and I think it’s super important to read it.  This book is disturbing and there are scenes that were hard to listen to.  This book is extreme, but I know people who’ve been in bad relationships where much of the reactions were the same.

I’ve read the first three books of The Playroom series, so I knew Ferron would survive his captivity, but I think it was good I got the ‘before’ story.  I did not, of course, know Ferron’s backstory – his parents, his life, his neediness.  What brought him to The Playroom, and what drove him away.  I also knew he would recover from the trauma he’s enduring and even go on to form a bond with Lenny.  But knowing that didn’t alleviate the worry and pain as he went through such abuse.

The book is entirely from Ferron’s point of view, so I was right there for all of it.  I’m looking forward to the next book.

Will put in a plug for Matt Haynes.  I always enjoy his narration and he did a good job with this one as well.

My Rating:

9/10 Pots of Gold (90% Recommended) – Compares to 4.5/5 Stars

Let me introduce myself, my name is Jayne, I’m a lady of a certain age (50, bites fingernails). I am an identical twin, the younger one of course by 7 minutes. I am married to a wonderfully complicated man, and we’ve celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary (yeah that’s a lot of year I could have been out for good behaviour now J). I have one daughter and two grandbabies one boy and one girl.

I was born in the Isle of Man; this makes me Manx (not British or English). I moved to the UK for several years, and as a child I lived in Italy for a while. But, the island calls to me so I returned home in 1998. I love the sea and now it’s only a stone’s throw from my home.

I (unfortunately) still work in the caring profession and have done for 34 years and have been a hospital nurse manager, out of hours, for the past three years. I made the decision to work part time nights in 2016 so that I could pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a writer.

I have always believed that I could and would write a book, but life just seemed to get in the way. Until someone asked me the question, “What do I want?” The answer was easy, the hard part was making it happen. Well, it did and it has and it was life-changing experience for me.

I released my first book in Feb 2018 and have subsequently released a few more since. I’ve found true happiness in doing something that just brightens my day. Now I won’t say it’s been a breeze because those who write know it’s not a total blast all the time, but it has been fun and exciting.

My island is steeped in folklore and I have used some of this in my writing, particularly the Manx Cat Guardian Series I’ve written, its paranormal with a twist, (book seven was released last month and the box set is now out too). I’ve also branched out into a little Daddy Kink, with some other tropes thrown in, with the La Trattoria Di Amore Series. I appear to mainly write in series because I have a few others coming in 2019/20: The Playroom, The App, Potters Creek and the Flamingo Bar series. Yep as I as series seem to be the way my mind works and if I can find the time I’ll finish the first M/F book in the Broken Veils series, which is the story line left on a cliff hanger in the Manx Cat Guardian series.

Writing has unleashed a beast in my mind and now I can’t switch it off. So with that, I now have several ideas vying for my attention, and currently it’s who shouts the loudest.
