Master Class (Master Class, #1)
TITLE: Master Class

AUTHOR: Rachel Hamowitz

Riptide Publishing

GENRE: M/M Romance, BDSM

RATING: 4 Stars

Heat Rating: 4 Stars

Book Description:

Broadway darling Nicky Avery is a shooting star by night, but by day he bounces from one heartless one-night stand to the next. A quick flogging, a rough lay, a new whip-hand to manipulate—yet still he yearns for something he cannot even name.

He finds his first true hint of satisfaction in Devon Turner, a self-possessed film star and expert Dom. Devon knows what he wants the moment he sees it, and what he wants is Nicky Avery. Nicky’s never learned to trust and has a nasty habit of topping from the bottom, but he learns fast that in the bedroom, Devon won’t tolerate his actor’s masks.

Nicky's a broken boy, but Devon knows exactly how to put his new sub back together. With patience, care, and all the punishments his little pain slut can handle, Devon breaks Nicky down one scene at a time, revealing a mind that yearns to trust and a heart that hungers for the ecstasy of true submission.

My Review:

Rachel Hamowitz has written a terrific short novel, we are introduced to Nicky and Devon; Sub and Dom. Rachel’s writing is good and the scenes were hot, I never stopped reading till I reached the last page. The book has a few hot scenes and it is a page turner, I cannot wait to read SUBlime: Collected Shorts (Master Class, #2).

Nicky is an actor and a handsome one at that, he seems to have everything going for him, but Nicky knows deep down his desire to submit is the only way he will ever feel satisfied. One night out with friends Nicky meets Devon; a strong, powerful looking man, literally Nicky cannot take his eyes of him he can feel the dominance pouring off of Devon. Nicky escapes to the washroom to get himself under control and when he looks up who is standing there but Devon. Devon cannot take his eyes off Nicky either and see’s the desires and knows what Nicky needs. The force of attraction and desires between these two is off the page hot.

This is a story of two men coming together and letting go, can Nicky be the sub Devon deserves and can Nicky learn to trust and give control over completely to his Dom?

I was a bit disheartened at first reading this book as I don’t agree with violence and I thought some of it was a bit too much but Devon the Dom knew he had to break down Nicky’s control to give him what he really needed and knowing Nicky always had the choice to stop what was happening did make it a bit better.

Overall I have rated Master Class a 4 star rating and heat level 4. I would recommend this to any of my friends who enjoy m/m bdsm romance. ( note: there is some rough sex scenes)

Hadyn Heat (One) - The UrgeHadyn Heat (One) - The Urge by Betty Midnight

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hadyn Heat (One) - The Urge– by Betty Midnight & Ava Michaels

This is the first book I’ve read by Betty Midnight and Ava Michaels and I have to say I will be reading more of their books in the near future. Hadyn Heat is the first of a four part series and I definitely can’t wait to read book two. Both authors have an easy to read writing style, character description are done well and they have introduced us to wide range of other character’s that I am hoping we see in the future maybe with their own stories or just part of this new series .

We are introduced to Hadyn and Taylor who are younger male werewolves both men learning how to control their natural urges/animal instincts to mate. Taylor and Hadyn are good friends and help each other out as much as possible to lessen their urges. You can feel the heat and the attraction between both men, Taylor’s feelings are becoming a bit more than just helping out his friend and he wishes deep down that Hadyn would make him his mate.

While out on a run Hadyn makes a grave mistake and ends up coming across a woman named Sarah and he takes her hard and fast. Unbeknownst to him his interactions with Sarah that night were being watch and the evil man ends up kidnapping Sarah hoping to lead Hadyn into a trap. Sarah who at this point is so caught up in the sexual haze of being with Hadyen doesn’t even realize what is going on around her. The plan is to entice Hadyn back to where Sarah is being held so the man can force Hadyen to mate with his daughter Sephy and take over the world.

This is a great beginning to a series that I cannot wait to read, both authors have done a terrific job in writing Hadyn Heat and have shown a different side of what it would be like to be a male werewolf. I really enjoyed this story and it only made me want to read the next book ASAP. The heat level in this story I would say was hot and rate it 4 out of 5. Overall I have rated this novel 4 stars and cannot wait to see where this series takes us next.

I would recommend Hadyn Heat to anyone who likes to read m/m and m/f paranormal romance novels.
