Masters at Arms begins the journey of three men, each on a quest for honor, acceptance, and to ease his unspoken pain. Their paths cross at one of the darkest points in their lives. As they try to come to terms with the aftermath--forging an unbreakable bond--will they ever truly become masters of their own fates? Or would fate become masters of them?
(Book One in the Rescue Me series about the men who own the Masters at Arms BDSM Club)
AUTHOR'S NOTE: This is an introduction to the series, but does NOT have the Happily Ever After endings that will come in the next three romance novels in the series. Being the back-story that usually is not told in "real time," there are some intense themes in the book, including death of a spouse, incest, torture, a battle scene, and amputation.
Type: Erotica, BDSM
Heat: Eh, 2.5? (not really the focus of this one yet though there are sex scenes)
Rating: 4 out of 5
Ahhh I'm finally reading Kallypso Masters and omg the woman is going to do me in! Not even two pages into this novella and she had tears streaming down my face. I'm not usually one for intro novellas but oh man Masters did an excellent job with this one and I absolutely loved it.
Masters had me falling for all three of the men behind the "Masters at Arms" kink club in record time. They're sexy and strong but each have a tremendous vulnerability that makes them feel so real and that makes your heart absolute ache for them. I really liked getting to see how these men wound up in each other's lives and how they first meet the women who crank them up a bit. How their time in the service bonded them, changed their lives and made them who they are for better and for worse.
It's not going to be pretty reading each of their stories. You can tell that pretty much from the start of this one. It's going to be emotional and heart breaking and just an incredible ride. Her men and women have all been through hell and back and haven't all come out on the other end stronger for it. They're really going to have to fight for their lives and their happily ever afters and I really can't wait to see how things come together for all of them. So far it's one I'd definitely recommend for those that like a good emotional and heart touching read with a little kink on the side (well, maybe a lot of kink on the side).
