Her Master's Courtesan (Masters #1) by Lily White
I am a Master.
You must know this fact to understand my story.
I capture women.
I break them down.
And I rebuild them.
If they are lucky, they are sold into the professional hands of another Master. If they are less fortunate, they are buried beneath the ground, never to be thought of again.
I lust for the control, I demand absolute submission and my body yearns to warp the minds of those I train.
Power is the only thing I’ll ever need and I am addicted to the feeling of ultimate control.
I am wealthy, good-looking, educated and charming.
And I am - in no way - a good man.
I do not want love.
I do not want kindness.
She thought she could change me by giving me the two things I knew I never wanted.
She was wrong.
A very very dark read with some seriously sadistic scenes, not for the faint hearted. This book if it was ever made into a film would be in the erotic horror genre.
Please note that this book has been banned from sale by Amazon but is still available through Smashwords. Amazon however, do have the second in this series Her Master's Teacher for sale which I find odd. Why sell one and not the other?
The book comes with a warning from the Author that states that there are many dark and unpleasant scenes in the book which include rape, etc.
Why would I read this book you might ask yourself? I read other reviews and had to see for myself if it was as bad as others had said it was.
It's completely disturbing and shows the extent that people will go to, to feed their deranged kinks. Yes, their are people out there that do behave in the way that the characters in this book acted.
I despised Aiden he was a sadistic monster who used and abused women and his goal was for financial gain and pleasure. He appeared to enjoy what he did, he had no redeeming characteristcs. Rebecca the used and abused victim, developed feelings for him but were these feelings her way of coping with what was happening to her at his hands?
I don't want to spoil this for anyone else, who might want to read this book so don't want to go into too much detail. It will definitely make you feel like a voyeur watching the story develop and you will be horrified at what is happening, but you just have to keep reading to see where it's going to end.
I gave it an 8/10 ~ 4 stars as it kept me reading I just couldn't stop, I can't say that I enjoyed it due to the subject matter though. My interest was piqued and I do like erotic and horror reads, this fit both genres nicely.
I won't be reading the next in the series though.
