Club Wicked, #4
Rhiannon Mirga, known as Goddess at Club Wicked, has a reputation for being a beautiful and unapproachable ice princess. But beneath her hard exterior beats the tender heart of a submissive who yearns for a Master’s love despite a nightmare past that makes it hard for her to trust anyone. For Rhiannon there are only two men that can help her overcome her fear, the club’s incredibly sexy trainers, Master Rory and Master Liam.
Unfortunately, after a long history Rory and Liam are on the verge of parting ways, driven apart by Liam’s refusal to accept Rory’s love as anything more than friendship. Despite their own issues, the men find they cannot refuse her plea for help and together they embark on a training session like no other where the Masters are the ones who learn the true meaning of love and surrender.
Ann Mayburn is one of those writers that when you read her books every one of your emotions get into play. This book is a prime example of that. She had me crying like a fool before I got to chapter three!!!! Seriously!! I am sooooo in love with this series. Each book grabs me more and more! I fell in love with Master Rory and Master Liam in the prequel about them, My Wicked Trainers, and this book made me love them even more!! First off they are British and Scottish, can you say orgasmic combination??
Rhiannon Mirga is known to the patrons of Club Wicked as Goddess, and most of them believe the bitchy persona she hides behind. When she asks Master Rory and Master Liam to train her, they are shocked to see the woman really behind Goddess. Her reasons for building the walls around her are also the reasons she needs them to train her. She is ready to get over the horrors of her past, and just maybe find a Master of her own. She just needs to learn to trust a man/Dom, and be able to trust herself. After years of therapy she is finally ready, and it doesn’t hurt that the two sexy Masters are the first two men to ever turn her on in a long time.
Liam and Rory are all set to take some time off from training. Their friendship is in trouble, and the reason for that trouble is they are getting in the way of their own happiness. They have been in love with each other for years, but Liam is unwilling to accept Rory’s love as anything beyond friendship. There is something about Rhiannon that calls to both of them, and no matter what is going on between them they can’t say no to her desperate plea to be trained by them. Will this damaged beauty be the glue that holds them together, or will she be the final straw blow to an already fragile bond??
Oh my sweet LAWD!! I could not put this book down!! When you pick this one up make sure you have the time to read it in one setting, because time just got away from me. I really wanted to just hug all three of these characters at times, because they all broke me for them a bit. Their journey to HEA isn’t one that is all flowers and rainbows, but goodness it is breathtakingly beautiful. I really hope we get to see more of these three in the books to come. And LAWD do I hope Master Hawk and Sonny’s book is next!! I need their story!!!! I hope y’all enjoy this book and series as much as I have!!!! 🙂
