Becoming His Master by M.Q. BarberInterviews

Because Two Men Are Better Than One: Why Henry and Jay are special, how I deal with the emotional side of writing, and a few other goodies

Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words: My thoughts on BDSM, writing, and favorite childhood books

Bayou Book Junkies: On being a writer and finding inspiration

Divine Magazine: How and where I write, and how much I enjoy hearing from readers


Archaeolibrarian: “This is an absolute treasure of a BDSM book. … It focuses so much more on the emotions, the feelings of the BDSM scene, rather than the physical. It deals with the fact that there are some bad eggs in the scene, but equally, some really good ones.”

Battery Operated Book Blog: “Henry’s words are like a silk caress and Jay’s submission is beautiful.  Ms. Barber’s writing is elegant and refined without feeling pompous and above the reader.”

Sinfully…: “I loved Henry. He had to tread so carefully when it came to Jay and I adored the fact that he truly did put Jay’s needs and desires before his own.”

Swoon Worthy Books: “This book is filled with plenty of hot m/m action. For those that do not know a lot about BDSM and the Dom/sub relationship this is a great book to get your feet wet with.”

Life, Books, and More: “The story is well-written and the insight into the lifestyle is tantalizing. I ache for the vulnerability and innocence of Jay as he tries to find that elusive something that he doesn’t seem to understand himself.”

Inked Rainbow Reads: “This was a story of finding your true self – harnessing that power and trusting yourself.”

Jill Prand: “I loved the way Henry fought the growing relationship with Jay. His reluctance to use Jay for himself gives us great tension within the story.”

MM Good Book Reviews: “Barber dove deep into the inner workings of the lifestyle with the club and the various types of people, what their kinks are and how they are supposed to satisfy their appetites safely, respectfully. … Reading this book really made me see the lifestyle in a different light, gave me more understanding of the hows and whys and I really quite enjoyed it.”

Mommy’s a Book Whore: “M.Q. Barber has one of the most distinctive voices as a BDSM author I have ever experienced reading. It’s like a breath of fresh air to see someone step outside of the S&M side of things and more into the D/s world.”

Mama Likes to Read: “The more I read the deeper I went into the story with Ms. Barber. The deeper I fell for Henry and Jay. Ms. Barber describes the relationship of the dom/sub in a marvelous way…”

Bring Your Own Book Club: “Henry is possessive, protective and passionate with Jay. He truly cares for the sub and his safety. … Jay is beautiful in his submission. It’s all consuming for him. Every attention or touch from Henry is like coming home…”

2 Friends Pimp Your Books: “This is a really brilliant romantic love story in a bdsm setting. I love the characters and I love how the author portrayed them as relatable yet flawed.”

TTC Books and More: “I was literally watching the love story between these two as it unfolded, much like Henry’s sheets. They had a connection with each other from the start that jumped right off the pages…”

Gay Media Reviews: “I quite enjoyed the story and I haven’t read too many BDSM novels but this one really reached out to me. … This is a great BDSM novel for someone just getting into the world of master/slave.”

Jackie’s Book Reviews: “The story takes us from savior to teacher to lover on Henry’s part, and Jay becomes student to something he never knew could be so worthwhile…”

Divine Magazine: “Will Henry fall for Jay? The Boy is already in love with the Dom, or so he thinks… is it adulation or true love? Read this well-written tale and find out for yourself…”

Crystal’s Many Reviewers: “I didn’t know it was possible, but with each page that I read of Becoming His Master, I fell even more in love with Henry.”
