 ~*~Princess Nhya~*~
I find that when reading a novel in this genre, I need to see and feel an emotional connection between the main characters (or love interest) of the story, in order for me to be even remotely moved by the physical act of them coming together. The 1st book in this series was incredible. Because of the way that it flowed. How it all came together it made you care about these men. Their plight. And be anxious to know more of their journey.

Nobody's Angel started off with a clear path in mind. It was

DNF :(

Just not my cuppa. This was oversimplified, overly dramatic BDSM. Too many parts read like an instruction manual or an explanation for the lifestyle. I'm far from experienced when it comes to this subject, but I've come to like certain authors of the genre.

I might have liked this had it been one of the first books I've read on the subject. But the heroine's uber innocent denial of her submissive nature (it was CONSTANT) was eye-roll inducing after awhile and the oh-so-patient instruction

Liked but not loved this one. 3.5 stars rounded down to 3.

The second in the Masters at Arms series and Marc’s story.

While on DM duty one night at his club, Marc rescues an inexperienced sub, Angelina, from a scene gone wrong with her abusive boyfriend. Angelina is in so much pain that she’s lost in subspace and doesn’t even consciously notice Marc bringing her down but she remembers him in dreams.

They bump into each other again a month later. Marc is with Luke on SAR duty. She doesn’t recognise

I was a bit unsure at first whether I would be giving this story 4 or 5 stars, but after getting all the way through I say definitely solid 5 stars. There were a few things that I wasn't crazy about but I love these characters enough to be forgiving of their flaws, so to speak!

Let me preface my review by saying that if you have not first read Masters at Arms, please go get it and read it before you read this one. This book is #2 in the series and you absolutely need to read the first one to meet

I didn't love it as much the 2nd go around.
Angelina's thoughts felt repetitive as did some of the areas about other characters.
That said, I still loved it.
The erotica and intimate scenes are still scorching, melt your kindle, Lord Have Mercy Fan Me, HOT!
After all the Dark Erotica I have read, it was nice to come back to SSC BDSM. The way it is meant to be. The rules of Trust a

I really wanted to skip this one and head right to Nobody's Here because I wanted to find out about Adam and Karla. But I also hate reading things out of order. I liked Angelina a lot. I love that the author has clearly thought out and planned these stories very well and has a clear direction she wants them to go in.

I actually struggled between 1 and 2 stars. This book is a huge let down from the first book of this series which was a prequel, telling the back stories of the three main characters.

The book could have been half as long and the story wouldn't have suffered a bit. At about the 60% mark it started to get okay -- after so many chapters of meandering inner monologues and pointless scenes -- and then it just got absurd and then even more absurd. Ridiculous. When the word "cancer" causes you to shak

I really enjoyed this story from beginning to end. It seems like BDSM would definitely be a way for an abusive person to "hide" their nature... almost like the pain portion gives someone permission to go too far. That's what happened with Angelina and Allen. Allen was a total dickwad (to borrow Adam's term for him), and took advantage of Angelina's trust. Angelina had been reading BDSM romance novels and thought she might like to try it. Allen completely obliterated her trust in what he did, but ...more

I liked this book, but I didn't love it as much as I'd hoped. Some of the scenes and dialogue really drug out for me, and I didn't make a great connection with the characters.

I am however looking forward to the next book because I really like Adam and Karla already.

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
This is the second installment of the "rescue me" series by debut author Kallypso Masters. While it is highly recommended to read the prequel Master at Arms, I found that this book can be read as a stand alone book. You won't get the complexity of the central characters but the author does a good job building the readers understanding of the characters all the same.

The story line is a contemporary fictional continuation of 3 ex military soldiers who are now owners of a BDSM kink club and have f

For those not quite able to wrap their heads around the genre of BDSM or who are uncomfortable with the concepts and feel they are books about people who hurt each other for fun and pleasure - Kally Masters may be just the ticket you're looking for! The Rescue Me series, beginning with Masters at Arms introduces a group of Doms, bound by the oaths and blood of military service, the loyalty borne of teamwork and discipline and the people necessary to complete them. After reading Masters in Arms, ...more

Marco D'Alessio (what a sexy name!!!!) was not the hero I was dying to read about when I finished Masters at Arms. I admit I was more enthralled with Damian and Adam. But I can't say I was not intrigued by the sexy italian, military Doc, who has a thing for just running away from commitment because of his past failed relationships and betrayal by women.

We know that his one time girlfriend and the woman he wanted to marry, had cheated on him with his own

If you have not read Masters at Arms (Rescue Me) yet you simply must before beginning this book. It sets up the story and the background perfectly.

Marc and Angel are just perfect together - and their journey to find love is fun, exciting, and kinky! Just how I like it! I enjoyed the characters and how they developed - the story was interesting and well thought out. The club is enticing - though we don't get much of it here. I really like reading about the other characters knowing their stories a
Nobody’s Angel is Marc and Angelina’s story. Marc meets Angelina when her and her boyfriend visit the Masters at Arms BDSM kink club to kind of test the Dom/sub waters. Angelina’s boyfriend completely abuses her trust and luckily someone - the dungeon monitor, Marc - notices and puts a stop to the scene. Marc is wearing a mask and Angelina isn’t able to see who her rescuer is. But she knows that this man is the type of Dom that she wants and needs. When they meet again Marc remembers who his lit ...more

Hmmm...Gosh, what to say after I was looking so forward to this story. The prequel to this book was wonderful. I moved onto Marc's story straight away.

So why only 3 stars? I just dont know, I am confused,because it really has everything you need or want in an erotic romance. Marc is a Dom you want for yourself, he is kind, handsome, protective, caring, Italian...he's perfect, maybe too perfect. Although he has issues with commitment (boring)to overcome.

After reading Masters in Arms I was beyond ready to read Adam's and Damian's books and Marc took a backseat on the excitement scale. Well his book turned out to be a page turner that I couldn't put down. Marc comes to Angelina's rescue as she is taken advantage of by an abusive lover in his club. Marc is the classic great guy that fell in love with and got burned by the wrong girl. To say Marc is emotionally unavailable is putting it mildly, I really enjoyed watching him fall hard for Angelina. ...more

After reading Masters at Arms Marc was not the guy I wanted to read about 1st (I was hoping for Adam) but turns out for the story to progress we needed to see Marc first.

I really enjoyed this book and since I'm still getting my feet wet in the BDSM books this was a good start in the series for me. (I've been told Damien's book is going to be a bit 'disturbing', I hope I'll be ready for him!) Some people mention that they didn't like all the how to & the explanation of a lot of the BDSM scene, e

I just love this new author's work. I bought her 1st book Masters at Arms (Rescue Me) by Kallypso Masters because of the cover and .99 price. I figured out pretty quick that it wasn't a regular book and a prequel. What a great prequel it was. It made me very invested in the characters and I was lucky and only had to wait 2 days for the 1st one to come out. OMG!! I was so into this book and if it hadn't been for me being sick, I would not have put this one down. I look forward to the next 3 set to come out in the near future. ...more

I enjoyed Marc and Angie's story. Great chemistry. The only thing that bugged me was when she found out Marc "lied" to her and then they went on as if it didn't happen. He didn't really explain himself to her why he did it. I find myself drawn more to Damian and can't wait for his story. Luke and Cassie(I assume it's his HEA)will be a good one too.

And the way it ended when Adam told Karla..."What the fuck are you doing in my bed"? I would have pinched his nipple hard and say trying to bring you

Nobodys angel is the second book in this series and you must read Masters at Arms book one before venturing into this one.

I brought these three books in the series, as I loved Kally's first book so much I needed to find out where the Doms life went and whom with. I enjoy BDSM novels and I must say that Kally has embraced the lifestyle in her books well , and given the reader hrs of grins, sigh, and heart palpatations lol.. wink wink !!

Marc owns the Masters at arms club with Adam and Damien...

He ends up saving Angelina from a bad BDSM experience...

And then...

They meet again...

He doesn't think he can offer anything more other than teaching her about BDSM...

Luke on the other hand, is exactly what Marc thinks she needs...

My thoughts:

I liked this one. It is a BDSM themed book but there is also a great storyline between Marc and Angelina. Marc being the Dom training Angelina to be a submissive.

I'm really torn as to how to rate this...3 or 4 stars. I just don't know. I liked the story, except for the part where the hero continued to lie by omission to the heroine through like, 75% of the book. I felt that took too long to resolve, and it resolved too easily... Angelina was mad, and rightly so, and then she's all of a sudden in the middle of sex scene screaming his name (not knowing it was him with her - another problem I had) and then they were all "in love". The scenes where Marc was ...more

I have been hearing so much about this series and I was looking forward to reading it! After reading the prologue in "Master of Arms" I have been anxious to finish the stories.. This story had me not wanting to put the book down. I enjoyed seeing all of the characters I was introduced to in the prologue and meeting some intriguing new ones.

What a delight this book is for BDSM fans/lovers/followers...

First and foremost this author has shown full understanding and respect for BDSM and what it represents. Throughout of the book the importance has been drawn towards safe, sane and consensual play, and also how important it is to have and earn a trust with your partner.
I loved the doubts, self criticism and fear the heroine has had within this book, as it represents conflicting emotions novice subs usually have =). The inner dialogue

Before you read this book, I highly suggest you read MASTER AT ARMS. It gives you a good idea of what to expect from this series and has a great overview of each of the heroes before you get to their actual book.

While I liked NOBODY’S ANGEL, I did have some problems with it. The major one was the fact that the pacing was all over the place. Certain scenes went on for waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too long and I think it really interrupted the flow. I can’t believe I’m saying this but some of the sex scene
