ARC Review – Master Class by Cassandra Carr

Cassandra Carr showed me a whole new side to the BDSM scene – the fun one! ~ Guilty Pleasures

Ryan Tomasi feels like a failure. His marriage is officially over; the ink dried on the divorce decree. His friend Jack introduces him to BDSM and he agrees to attend a Halloween party at a club. A submissive approaches him, offering herself, and how can he refuse the kneeling beauty? They do a whirlwind scene and Ryan is addicted—both to dominance and to her.

Lisette Rinaldo is returning to the BDSM club for the first time since ending a bad relationship with her former master. She spots Ryan and is taken by the combination of self-assurance and nervousness the man displays as he takes in his surroundings. And after he gives her an incredible re-introduction to the lifestyle, she knows she needs to see the man again.

Ryan and Lisette explore each other and the lifestyle, but what started out as playtime quickly evolves into something more. The problem? Ryan isn’t ready to get serious again and Lisette doesn’t want to fall in love with a guy who can’t give all of himself to her. Both of them are going to have to break out of the bonds holding them back from happiness.

Cassandra Carr showed me a whole new side to the BDSM scene – the fun one! A tale about a new “Dom”, his past and the woman who would bring him to his knees.

Coming off of a bad divorce, Ryan Tomasi is trying to put his life and his love-life back together. Seeing something amiss, fellow Professor Jack takes the chance and talks to Ryan about BDSM opening up a whole new and exciting world to Ryan. He always knew that he enjoyed kinky sex but never knew that there was a formal “thing” like BDSM – he thought that was limited to porn. Well, Jack and his submissive Callie opened his eyes and he finally felt like he belonged. On Halloween night, dressed in costume, he heads to the club with Jack and Callie. His first real scene. He enters the club and feels like he is “home”. Now to find the girl to fulfill his desires.

Lisette Rinaldo has decided to go back to the club and try BDSM again. She needs it. She needs the domination, she needs the spanking. After a bad relationship with Master Taz, she shied away from the club and the lifestyle. What better night to go back to the scene than on Halloween. What she doesn’t expect is her instant attraction to the man in uniform. Hoping he wasn’t an asshole, she takes a chance, kneels at his feet and offers herself to him.

After one night of play, Ryan knows that this is the lifestyle for him. Lisette made everything perfect. Justified his feelings and his want of the lifestyle. He wants to get to know Lisette better, he wants to find out what makes her tick, he wants to be there for her – to protect her and give her what she needs. But, will Lisette let him in after all she went through with her former Master?

“Master Class” was a joy to read. You have a new Dom with a Sub that had a bad experience. Two people who grew and learned more of the lifestyle together. The give and take, the “fun” they had together and the honesty between the two of them was refreshing. Ryan wasn’t always in Dom mode and Lisette wasn’t always his Submissive. They talked, they laughed, she was a brat and he made sure he punished her when the time called for it. And, he enjoyed it as much as her. The writing was fresh and fun and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Ms. Carr did not drag out the story, you knew and understood what all the characters were feeling and thinking without it being over-done. It was a story that was perfectly written and perfectly told.
