SYNOPSIS

When Marc rescued Angelina from an abusive Dom at his fetish club, he never imagined she’d upend his safe, controlled life. But his SAR partner, Luke, a widower, thinks Angelina has been sent to him by his dead wife. Marc knows only he can fulfill her sexual needs, but won’t hurt his friend. When the abusive Dom stalks her, she turns to Marc for help and learns a submissive has power too.

I struggled on how many stars to give this book..I liked it but I didn’t love it. I definitely preferred Masters At Arms which is the prequel in the Kallypso Masters Rescue Me series.

In Nobody’s Angel we get Marc d’Alessio story. Marc, like the other Masters, has a lot of deep-rooted issues and guilt. These result in him not wanting to get close to a woman and staying away from dom/sub relationships. One night he rescues Angelina from an awful BDSM scene in the club while on DM duty. However, he immediately feels guilt over not getting there sooner. Angel left an impression on him, the first woman in a long while and he cannot keep her out of his thoughts. Angel though doesn’t remember much from that night (passing out after the drama) other than what she describes as a “dream hero”, a man straight out of her fantasy who made her feel safe again.

Some weeks later Marc and Angel meet again at a bar. Marc recognizes her immediately and realizes he still feels very protective of her and is completely attracted to her. However, he does not let on who he is and here the deception begins!! Angel does not remember Marc but picks up on words and feelings when with him that reminds her of her “dream hero”. Add to this the further complication of gorgeous Luke who has his own issues and also has feelings for Angel for very different reasons.

Nobody’s Angel is HOT and well written in the sense that you get that emotional connection with the characters and feel what they are going through.

I don’t want to go into the story further so as not to spoil it for anyone.

So why the reason for not knowing how many stars to give it..well…I really liked the story, loved all the characters but it was quite slow and repetitive at times. Without giving too much away the “subbie training sessions” started out really good but never got going, they were drawn out and repeated but never really got anywhere. Angel and Marc also seemed to “over-think” so much that it got a bit annoying. But I will say though that it was interesting to see the relationship evolve and the passion and the realization that Angel makes.

I am chuffed that I don’t have to wait for Adam’s book because his story intrigued me from Masters At Arms and the way this book ended has me wanting to know what is next!

Nobody’s Hero (Rescue Me, #2) – by Kallypso Masters

SYNOPSIS
Have you ever fallen in love with the wrong person—or the person who feels he or she is wrong for you?

NOBODY’S HERO is the continuing romantic journey of Adam and Karla, which began in MASTERS AT ARMS & NOBODY’S ANGEL.

Retired Marine Master Sergeant Adam Montague has battled through four combat zones, but now finds himself retreating from Karla Paxton, who has declared war on his heart. With a significant age difference, he feels he should be her guardian and protector, not her lover. But Karla’s knack for turning up in his bed at inopportune times is killing his resolve to do the right thing. Karla isn’t the young girl he rescued nine years earlier—something his body reminds him of every chance it gets.

Their age difference is only part of the problem. Fifty-year-old Adam has been a collector of lost and vulnerable souls most of his life, but a secret he has run from for more than three decades has kept him emotionally unable to admit love for anyone. Will Karla be able to break through the defenses around his heart and help him put the ghosts from his past to rest? In her all-out war to get Adam to surrender his heart, will the strong-willed Goth singer offer herself as his submissive and, if so, at what cost to herself?

ABOUT THE RESCUE ME SAGA: The books in the ongoing Rescue Me Saga are not stand-alone stories and should be read in order. Characters will recur in later books to deal with further issues in their lives as the saga continues and each book builds upon all previous ones. Sometimes main characters even need another book to help resolve major issues affecting their relationships.

BONUS MATERIAL in this version: Kallypso Masters has added the PLAYLIST of music that inspired her as she wrote about the first three couples mentioned in this combined volume, as well as a GLOSSARY OF TERMS and a CAST OF CHARACTERS in these books in the saga.

CONTENT WARNING: Intended for mature adult readers not offended by profanity and graphic (but never gratuitous!) sex scenes. Due to the emotional way in which the author presents the subject matter (past and present), the books might cause triggers while reading. Please read the Author’s Notes at the beginnings of each book before reading further.

I have had a bit of a crush on Adam since the first book and was so looking forward to his story!! Adam is truly a tortured and damaged soul in desperate need of fixing and this paired with him being total alpha male gorgeousness completely appeals to me! But….unfortunately through most of the story (well until 2/3 in really) I was left frustrated at the constant lack of communication and unnecessary drama. I also have a problem with the 24/7 “slave” issue. There were other bits of the story that were questionable too and took the story beyond the realms of reality like hearing and talking to a ghost..what was that??!!

So that is why Adam’s book fell short for me. I will say though that I did love the characters and their respective emotions and journey’s, it’s the massively screwed up way they went about it I had a problem with. As for the yummy scenes all I’ll say is HOT!!!!

Adam is 25 years older than Karla and is in major denial about his feelings for her. He keeps rescuing her, the first being when she was 16, and they have kept in touch ever since. Adam feels extremely protective of her and she is a life line to him and unbeknownst to him, at the start, she rescued him too on several occasions. It is not until she enters his club 9 years later that he sees her for the woman she has become and acknowledges that he is attracted to her. However he wants to continue to view her as the 16 year old he met nine years ago and is disgusted with himself for the attraction he has to her now. Adam is so scared to love again and refuses for anyone to get close. His insecurities and troubled soul has built a brick wall round him for protection which results in actions that completely go against the honorable man that he is.

Karla is madly in love with Adam, has been since she was sweet 16. She’d do anything to secure his love – as a man loves a woman. I truly felt for Karla, the amount of times her heart was ripped from her chest I am surprised she came out of this intact! At first I was shouting at her (well my kindle) for being weak and to stand up for herself, however I then asked myself how far would you go/what would you try to reach the man you loved and receive his love back in return??!!

So yes this story was frustrating, but I did enjoy it and Adam came good for me in the end so I am no longer mad at him LOL, it was a close call though!!
