    Let me start by saying there are some elements of Nicky Devon's play that were a wee bit too much for me I feel like some of it bordered on abuse BUT it worked for Nicky so hands in the air no judgment I'm just not a huge fan of humiliation but if it works for them it works Plus I was still holding a tiny little grudge against Devon for some Ass tacular advice he gave Jonathan in Power Play Resistance Then he went threw down some shibari skills Dammit Can't hold a grudge against a Dom who knows his shibari THEN he went said this I will always treat you like the priceless treasure you are So I built a bridge We hugged it out Master Class seemingly starts in the middle; I couldn't really tell if they had met prior to their initial encounter or just knew of one another That first encounter whew makes uite the impression These two play HARD Nicky has mastered the art of topping from the bottom Devon is having none of it; he breaks Nicky down thoroughly Of course Nicky is thrown by this yet at the same time responds to Devon in a way he's never done before The problem is then it just ends Just when it was getting good What the what what???? AND there's apparently no follow up Boooo

    Naughty Nicky is taking to task by the Dominant Devon I just love alliteration don't you? I'm glad I bought this book There is some rough sex in here I was a little confused and pissed off at first because I didn't understand what Devon was doing Once it was revealed I loved him for it Nicky needs to be punished Topping from the bottom is a big no no I'm hesitant to write too much about the story because it would be all spoiler Suffice to say the rough mm sex was hot This story was Sm than Ds There as a good dose of BD which always trips my trigger Who doesn't want to be tied up?

    Master Class delivers what it promises a gritty tale about a man who wants to be dominated and even he has no idea how much or how deep this need really goes The story focuses on the humiliation and pain he goes through without at first giving any hint as to why he wants this It made for somewhat disturbing reading at least for me but certainly held my attentionNicky turns out to be desperate for good reasons although one could argue as to his methods I certainly would The way his character is shown with that sort of a personality and history his resulting reactions are plausible Topping from the bottom is a mechanism that lets him feel in control and has so far ruined his sexualpseudo submissive encounters for him I must admit that I had trouble connecting to him – until the very end when I got an explanation that enabled me to see the whole pictureDevon is a Dom who seems cruel and rough and looks and acts like just what Nicky wants Luckily for both of them he is also able to look deeper and he digs out what it is that drives Nicky The way he handles the situation is again debatable but since his end result for now is what Nicky needs there is a certain amount of closureThis is not a book for the ‘casual’ BDSM reader If you are looking for something that is ‘light BDSM’ or touches on kink this is not the book for you as clearly stated in the publisher’s warnings But if you are looking for something a little grittier a story that will keep you guessing and somewhat in suspense and if you don’t mind a look at the darker side of submission give this one a tryNOTE This book was provided by Riptide Publishing for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews

    I freaking loved thisLast year I read the collection of shorts Sublime Collected Shorts which contains glimpses and slices of life and discipline of the sub Nicky and his Dom Devon I really enjoyed them but I was also left with wanting to know how the two met how they started that relationship and this book is what I dreamed ofBoth Nicky and Devon are actors therefore they are used to mask their true persona but they are also very good at reading the nuances of other people's behavior When Nicky and Devon meet at a dinner they immediately read each other Their first encounters seen from Nicky's POV are brutal and they seem to satisfy only a shallow need on Nicky's part pain humiliation relinuishing control losing himself The problem is that Nicky never really got to the bottom of his needs and Devon knows thatThe second half of the story is in Devon's point of view Nicky enters his apartment and the scene with a bratty attitude that Devon tries to break He wants Nicky to get deeper inside himself to understand the value of his submission What I liked about Devon was seeing the process of the decisions he makes how he ponders cause and effect how he tries to anticipates Nicky's behavior setting him up to win or to fail While Nicky is almost clueless about what's at the bottom of his heart and probably also about Devon's intentions it's through Devon's point of view that we begin to understand what's broken in NickyI'd really love to read about what happens next but in a traditional way than the collection shorts

    This felt like a crash course than a class At just over 2 hours 'Master Class' has a lot of story packed into itunfortunately for me it felt like just a bit too much and didn't work as well as it would have if there'd been a bit storyNicky Avery is the darling of Broadway at night but during the day he's a one bad hook up after another as he looks for somethingbut not even he knows what it is Devon Turner thinks he knows what Nicky's looking for and while he wants to be the one to fill that need he's determined that Nicky learns who's going to be the master in their relationshipand unlike his past experiences it's not going to be Nicky Devon doesn't put up with 'topping from the bottom' so if Nicky wants what Devon has to offer and he's fairly certain he does he'll need to up his gameMaster Class isn't my first time with a BDSM story but I have to admit it's the first time I've read one where the play between the Master and sub at times feels like it's bordering on abuse and also includes humiliationno judgement here ok? It's a thing for some people and that's totally cool I'm just saying it's not my thing not that it's good or it's badit's just not my thing and that's cool because different strokes for different folks right? So while I admit I'm not a fan of these two things and had there been something in the blurb that hinted at one or both of these things being in the story I very probably would have taken a pass on this one and that's only because I would have known that giving it a glowing review wasn't going to happenit's why I don't read SciFi or Horror or Historical Romancethey're just not my thingHowever having said all that uite honestly because of the brevity of the story I decided to give it a go anyways and while there was a couple of things that I didn't like there were other aspects of the story that worked for me Like the fact that in spite of the fact that the play between Nicky and Devon at times felt abusive and the issue of humiliation Devon's treatment of Nicky also held an underlying expression of care and concern that spoke to Devon's true feelings towards NickyAndrew Navarro is both a new to me narrator and it seems a new to audiobooks narrator as well and I definitely enjoyed this first foray into the medium by this narrator and look forward to hearing what comes next for him and while the book was only a 3 star listen for me The narration was definitely stronger and I'd have to put that at a solid 4 stars'Master Class' for me spoke to the sm part of BDSM than stories that I've read previously and had the story been a bit longer with a bit stronger relationship development I may have come away feeling differently than I did about the overall story So ironically it was the shortness of the story that convinced me to read it while also being one the reasons that I didn't enjoy it as much as I'd hoped toAn audiobook of Master Class was graciously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

    I already read both Power Play books and the Sublime Collection by the same author There is a little of Devon and Nicky in them But I would have like to have of them I read Master Class non stop even though at the end it was 300 am and I had trouble keeping my head straight and my eyes opened ; When I read the last page I thought no contract? no training? Am I already dreaming or is there missing pages? So if there is a second tome of Devon and Nicky story please tell meNicky 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 hotThis 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?Overall I have rated Master Class 4 stars rating and heat level 5 I would recommend this to any of my friends who enjoy mm bdsm romance

    Ok I've heard the phrase topping from the bottom before and I had the idea of what it meant But as I'm reading through this story I finally truly grokked that concept It suddenly clicked in a That OMG THAT stab my finger at the page er Kindle sort of epiphany THAT is how well the whole scene was described and it was just beautiful to watch Devon wield that knowledge into what Nicky needed not what he wantedSo yes this is must read for those who like BDSM done well I can't give it any better endorsement than that

    Review? That involves thinking right? I might at some point be able to do that againETA On rereading I'm not much closer to a coherent review Considering that in real life most of this is NMK the fantasy blows me away surprisingly hard every time When I can think again I might wish it was a little longer to give itself time to be subtle but that's very much a comment from the standsOne thought I keep coming back to again and again If you ever wanted to understand what makes people living the lifestyle tic what they get out of it? This is the book you should read

    OverallEverything I read with Nicky and Devon makes me want Although Nicky plays harder than I'm often comfortable with even in my fiction Haimowitz' approach especially once the reader gets through the initial rough scenes makes the bond between Devon and Nicky overwhelm any discomfort I have with the beginningThe first two scenes involve some heavy play although readers who are familiar with SUBlime will know what they are getting into For those who haven't read the previous book I recommend reading Master Class first as it does a better job of showing the beginnings of their relationship even though it still leaves me wanting Which is good because then you can enter SUBlime with an appreciation of their standingStrengthsWith material as sensitive and potentially difficult to handle the writing becomes a crucial piece of the storytelling not that it isn't important otherwise and Haimowitz did an excellent job of exploring Nicky who needs to feel a strong hand who won't be manipulated and Devon who enjoys controlling Nicky but also who wants to help him The scenes were handled extraordinarily well balancing the sexual the psychological and the emotional so that by the end the reader is feeling what the characters have gone through Sensual and breathtaking in some of its rawness There is so much potential for stories like this that toe the line between purely erotic BDSM and story to suffer for lack of character development While I do want of them and want exploration into their relationship I felt the amount the reader delves into Nicky and Devon's head especially Devon's helps get a grasp on what is happening with the story and the full depth and meaning of what is taking place It's not just torture or sexual gratification in fact it's very little of either as Devon peels back Nicky's layers and reveals the true man inside WeaknessesFirst a weakness that isn't a weakness I want The ending is satisfying and gives closure but I still want like a spoiled child The nice thing is I can go back and re read SUBlime for Nicky and Devon adventures The only real weakness of this novel is that is is NOT for everyone There is some what is described as rape fantasy although it's not nearly as cruel or rape ish as other books that have had similar warnings I wouldn't consider it a rape fantasy but I think the warning is good as the first scenes involve force and humiliation and could trigger Humiliation is a suick for me but it's not bad enough to really push the off button for me just to give an idea of it's level of disturbance Be sure to check out my other reviews on my blog
