Review: Wow, I really enjoyed The Master a lot more then I thought I would, and I liked it way better then the first book in the Game Maker series.
I think the main reason I liked and enjoyed this book was because it did not get to far into BDSM, than the first book did. And what it did have of BDSM in it, it started out slow and took you step by step ( and as a reader who does not / and is not super comfortable with this). I was able to enjoy and be comfortable while reading this book, without finding it too over whelming.
Catarina was a great character, she had depth, wit, mysterious backstory, and badass independence. Maksimilian was a lot of fun to read when he wasn’t being a jerk or an ass ( which is a lot of the time) but he is able to make it endearing/ sexy. These two put together in a full plot with lots of interesting points here and there was awesome. It was also good to see the characters from the first book too!
5 out of 5 stars.
