Rating: 4 out of 5 Paddles
Master of Mine has several stories that I would have liked to see as novellas at the very least. They drew you into the story so much that I was surprised when it ended. Tempted, Spice it Up, and Lady Blake’s Tales for the Queen were those particular stories. Some of the scenerios are some I wouldn’t mine trying myself.
Several stories showed you that it is okay and a lot of fun to role play as long as all parties are participating and that this can really spice up your own life. All showed that communication is also a very big part in making everyone safe and showing that you can’t be happy unless you are true to yourself. I wasn’t too thrilled with a couple that had themes of revenge because that isn’t what this lifestyle is about because people can really be hurt, though the stories eventually worked out. Only two involved using safe words and some had a higher heat factor than others.
I do have to say I did enjoy the book for the most part and found most of the authors created a world you could picture in your head as you were reading. All of these authors were new to me and some of them I will be looking for some of their other work to read. If you are pressed for time and want to enjoy a quick story, then read Master of Mine. You will the fix to tide you over for awhile.
