Guest Review of Master Class

Master Class by Rachel Haimowitz
Riptide Publishing
Short Novella: 57pages
4 out of 5

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.

Short Review:
WOW!! That is the first word that comes to mind while and after reading this book. The first 5 pages left me with my mouth hanging open. The sparks that fly between Nicky and Devon during their first meeting sets the stage for what is to come. For Nicky everything seems to come easy to him. Nicky, a masochist who needs pain, is used to topping from the bottom and getting his Doms to give him exactly what he wants. That is until Devon comes into the picture. Devon is a Dom in every since of the word. He knows Nicky's tricks and he is not about to be topped by anybody. This book is not for the faint of heart. It goes through the breaking of Nicky. Devon has to show Nicky and make him understand that the only way to find what he really needs is to just let go.

While there were times that as a reader I wanted to hate Devon, I had to take in to account that what he was doing he was doing for Nicky and the relationship that they could have. The chemistry between these two is magnetic. The way that the scenes were done was well thought out and brilliant . The descriptive writing is done in such a way that you feel like a voyeur in the room and also allows you to be in the head of the character. I have read other books by this author and have to say that she has not let me down. This was a very intense and enjoyable book.
