Master of the Mountain (Mountain Masters #1)
When Rebecca's boyfriend talks her into vacationing at a mountain lodge with his swing club, she quickly learns she's not cut out for playing musical beds. Now she has nowhere to sleep. Logan, the lodge owner, finds her freezing on the porch. After hauling her inside, he warms her in his own bed, and there the experienced Dom discovers that Rebecca might not be a swinger.....more
HOLY HOTNESS. MY FIRST CHERISE SINCLAIR BOOK DID NOT DISAPPOINT!
Master of the Mountain is my first venture into a Cherise Sinclair book and it left me smacking myself upside the head and wondering why I have not read her books before. What a great BDSM escape fully equipped with a tortured, alpha dom who is more than willing to show our lovely sub the ropes.
In the past, she'd occasionally stuck out as the only sober one in a drunken crowd; this time, she was the only frigid one in a horny...more
You know, Cherise Sinclair does such an amazing job of giving us characters who we care about and believable storylines despite the shorter page count. I’ve found this to be true in every one of her books that I’ve read, and Master of the Mountain is no different.
Rebecca is such a sweet young woman and I just ache for her and her poor self image because she’s on the plumper side, and has scars on her legs. She’s embarrassed by her body to point of wanting the lights dimmed when having sex, even...more
The book description gives more than a good insight of the story - in fact, it tells the whole story! - so I won't bother writing a plot summary here. I'll just say that the premise was interesting, but I didn't like the way the story unfolded.
Rebecca was too hesitant and insecure - so much that I didn't know if she still considered Matt her boyfriend or not when she had sex with Logan. Before anyone shouts "Cheater!" at her, let me explain that Matt and Rebecca had an open relationsh...more
For me, Logan's character is a greatexample of a responsible and good Dom. He recognized Rebecca's (Becca) submissive na...more
In the time it takes you to say BDSM, I already finished this book.
If you are looking for an erotica romance author who delivers each and every time you open a book, then Cherise Sinclair is your girl. While the Masters of the Shadowlands may be my favourite series by her, this series Mountain Masters is another great BDSM escape for readers.
Rebecca lets her boyfriend, Matt talk her into taking part in a swingers getaway at a mountain lodge. Feeling unfulfilled in her...more
Hot & Kinky!
I've often heard that Cherise Sinclair is a Master at writing BDSM stories, so when Master of the Mountain came up as a book club selection, I jumped at the chance to read something from this new-to-me author.
Rebecca and Matt might be compatible intellectually, but physically they are not. We learn this right away when Matt reveals to Rebecca that he has been a part of a swingers group. He asks Rebecca to join him in the next get-together. Rebecca reluct...more
Although I really wanted to punch Matt in the face & thought Rebecca was an idiot for staying with him!
I always love a book where the POV's switch between H & h and it was never confusing as to whose head you were in.
Thanks to Bookie for recommending :)
ETA - So I liked this one, but I didn't get the HOLY CRAPS EATING MY BRAIN vibe that I did from the others? I think maybe I failed to connect to the heroine. I'm still up for reading the next one in the series, though! Can't wait!
Master of the Mountain sounds ...ominous. Yet, this Master, Logan Hunt, rather apropos, wasn't too dark, too overbearing or excessively Dominant. Instead, he stealthily wrapped "lush", round-bellied, deceptively submissive Rebecca into his care, which meant he earned her trust, gave her steady praise and loved her just the way she is, scars, phobias, inhibitions and all.
THANK GOODNESS FOR THAT! Because Rebecca sure needed it. Upon meeting Rebecca, girlfriend was faking orgasms and think...more
Logan, the mountain man, a traumatized veteran, meets Rebecca....a soft curvy robust woman, who feels inadequate.....ugly...to men. Rebecca...Becca. Her relationship with a boyfriend, Matt, left her empty, unattractive, and frustrated. When they were done having sex..."She sure couldn't tell him she faked a good half her orgasms. And she resented that he couldn't tell,...more
Matt you're an ass. Plain and simple.
Rebecca, a few things here, love. 1. Why would you let yourself get talked into going to a swingers retreat for an entire weekend? 2. How could you not know this about your boyfriend? 3. If you were against it how would you think it would work out for you two at the end? 4. Faking orgasms? 5. Staying with someone who's on you about your size??? NOPE!
Now that we got that cleared out of the way, I guess it's a good thing you did go because you f...more
Becca was a wonderful character. Like Logan, she was scarred inside and out, but she was incredibly brave and so giving of herself. Her moments with Thor were touching. And the journey she took to discover and accept her sexuality and identity was enjoyable.
This book was not without humor. I loved the scene wh...more
It's the same old story from Ms. Sinclair: lather, rinse repeat. The plot is pretty much EXACTLY the same, only the names have changed. If you want a more in dep...more
Actually it started off as a-okay. The Heroine happens to fall for a guy who is a gentleman (in her eyes, not mine) who can give her a life of happiness, except Matt is a terrible bed lover. Matt makes a suggestion to explore their sexual side in their relationship, and asks if she'd join him on a Swinger's retreat. This is the first time Rebecca has ever heard of him going to such a place, in which couples, men and woman show up just to have sex with one another. In my op...more
After reading all but one (the last one is on the to read list) of the Club Shadowlands books and loving them, from a friends recommendation I have moved onto the Master of the Mountain series and I am not disappointed in the slightest!
After loving the lifestyle found in the Shadowlands it is refreshing to see the BDSM lifestyle written out of the club scene.
Logan meets Rebeccca after she reluctantly agrees to come to the mountains wit...more
At the start I didn't want Rebecca to go on the trip with Matt, he seemed like a piece of crap and she could do so much better. I hated how uncomfortable Matt made Rebecca and how he didn't do anything to help her fit in. Of course...more
Realistic and Truly Erotic.
Things to like about this book: the heroine is older, not physically perfect, a BDSM novice who stumbles as she learns. The hero has emotional scars - he's chosen a life running a remote mountain retreat for a reason - but he's doesn't suffer the fate of many bruised alpha males in contemporary romance. Sinclair makes him likable, even sympathetic. This variety of erotic romance with BDSM is my personal favorite because it makes sense to me. This story was a...more
I am glad I did.
This book sizzled. Yes, there were a lot of sex scenes. Normally, I have a lot of problems with that since they often feel like fillers and doesn't add anything to the book. Not this time. Each sex scene felt like they had an intent. But...more
I have to admit, however, that I have an ingrained gag reflex to guys that call grown women "little one," which is mildly surprising given how much I like the Anita Blake series and don't mind Jean-Claude calling Anita "ma petite." Perhaps it's because she argued with him about it for so...more
Rebecca is an artist working for an ad agency in San Francisco. Her live-in boyfriend Matt joined a swingers club. He wants Rebecca to accompany him for a long weekend in the mountains with the swingers club. Rebecca has rarely been pleased with sex, so she thinks she’ll give it a try. While there, she just isn’t into it and does not join in. When she goes to her cabin to...more
