Extended Description: Marc d’Alessio might own a BDSM club with his fellow military veterans, Adam and Damián, but he keeps all women at a distance. However, when Marc rescues beautiful Angelina Giardano from a disastrous first BDSM experience at the club, an uncharacteristic attraction leaves him torn between his safe, but lonely world, and a possible future with his angel.
Angelina leaves BDSM behind, only to have her dreams plagued by the Italian angel who rescued her at the club. When she meets Marc at a bar in her hometown, she can’t shake the feeling she knows him—but has no idea why he reminds her of her angel.
When Marc’s search-and-rescue partner, widower Luke Denton, confides he believes Angelina is the angel his wife promised to send him, Marc is convinced she is meant for Luke. A painful incident from his past keeps Marc from letting any woman drive a wedge between him and a friend.
While Luke can provide Angelina with love and stability, Marc knows his friend can’t satisfy her submissive needs. Marc offers one night to show her that BDSM is not about pain, but a power exchange with mutual trust and consent. But he knows he can’t commit emotionally to anything more.
When the abusive Dom from Angelina’s past threatens, Marc’s protective instincts kick in; he must keep her safe. Again at the Masters at Arms Club, she turns the tables on him—and turns his safe, controlled world upside down. (Book Two in the RESCUE ME series; follows introduction to series, MASTERS AT ARMS.)
All I can really say about Nobody’s Angel is wow. I haven’t read a BDSM themed book this well done or thought out in quite some time. I do recommend picking up the first book to get a background on all of the Doms at the Masters at Arms Club. The price of Nobody’s Angel is a steal as is the price of Masters at Arms.
Marc is a strong dominant who is not really into pain but simply more into control. And yes, most of us like that aspect – a lot. He knows who and what he is and isn’t ashamed or scared of it. After serving in the military and having several D/s relationships, he thinks he knows what he is looking for. That is until Angelina comes into his life. Although Marc has a commanding presence and way with words, I have to admit he is easier going that a lot of dominants I know, then again that may just be my perspective.
Angelina is curious about BDSM but thinks being labeled a pain slut is a bad thing. Personally, I got a real laugh out of that! She wants to try new things and when a “dominant” boyfriend asks, it leads to trouble and then unintentionally to Marc’s arms. She is a witty and fun Italian woman with quite a few brothers who is just trying to stand on her own two feet. It is nice to be able to reach back in my head to remember that feeling of anticipation and nerves at trying things in the lifestyle for the first time and Kallypso Masters really brought Angelina to life and allowed me to get that warm fuzzy newbie feeling again.
I loved the characters in Nobody’s Angel and can’t wait for the next book to be released and read about the supporting characters – Adam, Karla, Grant, Luke and more. Kallypso Masters is a very talented author and she had me captivated from page one. I had to stay up late and finish, which did not make for a good girl the next day!
