Review: Masters at Arms (Rescue Me #1) by Kallypso Masters


Masters at Arms (Rescue Me, #1)Masters at Arms

by Kallypso Masters
ebook, 0 pages
Published August 29th 2011 by Kallypso Masters (first published August 12th 2011)

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.

My Thoughts:

Masters at Arms introduces readers to the Rescue Me series with prequel’s to Master Marcs, Master Adams and Master Damien’s stories as well as some important background information on each of them. It did take a little bit for me to get into the book overall and the feel of it, it wasn’t quite what I was expecting, but by Marc’s story (the third section) I was flipping the pages and wanting more, more, more! 


If you love dark heroes with tortured pasts and strong sexual desires that will have the pages sizzling in your hands then you’ll love Marc, Adam and Damien. Each of their journeys is a heart-breaking experience but just when they think they’ve hit bottom they find a kindred soul in each other. An emotional rollercoaster, you will experience the highs and lows of life along with the characters as they step from their broken shells and work to build a future. Full of passion and pleasure, this one is not for the light of heart (contains incest, sexual abuse, loss, war-time tragedies, BDSM and more) but I’m eager to continue with the series. 


Master at Arms is not a full-length story but instead five short stories and a wonderful introduction to the series. This is just to get you quivering in your seat for more, which I am now desperate for. A great read from Kallypso Masters!

Hi Crystal !

I LOVE Kallypso! I have read the whole series so far and CAN'T WAIT FOR BOOK 4 with Damian! Wait until you read Master Adam's book! You will LOVE THIS MAN! WHEW! Talking about a sexual dynamo and yet so tender and broken. You will need a fan to cool down and a box of tissues for this one!
