I was seriously thrilled to read this book coz let’s face it. How many times can you meet a hot fifty-year-old hero? Yes, please. I’m game anytime! Um…Adam’s gorgeous physique was the best aspect of this story. I am honestly surprised when I look at this high average rating. Have I read the same book? What’s wrong with me? Well, I’m going to tell you what’s wrong with this book. Just keep in mind it’s only my opinion though.

Finally!! Master Seargent Adam Montague and Karla find love. This book was the steamiest of the series thus far, but I also found it to be most frustrating. **Spoiler Alert**


Adam is twenty-five years Karla's senior and is in major denial about his feelings for her. He wants to view her as the sixteen year old he met nine years ago. He is disgusted with himself for the attraction he has to her now that she is twenty-five years old. In addition, he has some serious demons in his past that he hasn

I couldn't get into this book. There was too much back story of the cougar attack, not likely, cougars are very solitary and stay away from people, but anyway. This attack is mentioned something like five times by the chapter three with no additional bits of info pertinent to the story revealed. And then, of all things, Adam is in the hospital, laying ON HIS BACK, after this wild animal RIPPED the skin off his back and Karla is laying ON TOP OF HIM?!?! Yeah, he's on painkillers but unless he's t ...more

I enjoyed this one much more than Nobody’s Angel.

It’s part 3 of the continuing Masters at Arms saga and this really is a saga. The story continues from one book to the next, there’s a lot of story building in each one and they really wouldn’t work as stand alones.

This time, we have the story of Master Adam and his sub Karla who is 25 years his junior. He rescued her from a potentially dangerous situation in a bus station when she was just 16. She’s been in love with him ever since and they’ve b

3.75 Stars

Would have been better without all the repetitive thoughts of the mc's.
Needed to move at a faster pace.
Needed more suspense.

The adult scenes were intimate and steaming hot.
Very erotic.
Although even they tended to have a small problem.

There was to much 'lecturing' in a few of the scenes about BDSM during the intimate scenes.
This caused me to start skimming.

Adam and Karla's potential storyline intrigued me since it was teased in Masters at Arms (Rescue Me Saga, #0.5) by Kallypso Masters . When they met Adam was a hard bitten marine facing another war zone, on the heels of losing his wife, and coveted slave of twenty years. Karla was a clueless sixteen year runaway, over

I'll be in the minority, but that's okay;)

The very first book, Masters At Arms, is the best so far. The writing in Nobody's Angel and Nobody's Perfect was a bit lacking. I've been looking forward to Adam's and Karla's story from that very first book, and I had very high hopes. They may have been too high. Either way, I was a bit disappointed, especially with the first half of this book. The second half was a bit better, but not by much. If I'm really honest, this read more like NCIS fanfic than

Warning: emotional torture porn. I am so grateful that none of the characters had pets, because they would have died in some horrible way. I was confused a lot of the time by the emotions and motivations. I understand that the characters were confused too, but there many moments that made no sense to me. (view spoiler) ...more

That was one hell of an emotional roller coaster- I can’t remember when I last read a book that made me...feel SO much. I did feel everyone’s emotions in this one as if they were my own: Karla’s, Adam’s, Damian’s, Savi’s, Marc’s, Angelina’s, Luke’s, Cassie’s, even Grant’s…they were all so clear and heart-wrenching, I felt like residing in their heads. Brilliant job!
The sex scenes were H-A-W-T with a capital H and frequent- exactly the way I like it. The romance is just perfect and makes me HUNGE

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 t ...more

I have been waiting for Adam's book since meeting this extraordinary man in Master at Arms. As none of the books in this series should be read as stand alone I am not going to give a review as if it was.

Its been 9 years since Adam saved Karla from a pimp at a bus station and she has been in love with him ever since.

The title of this book is what Adam has to overcome through out this book - thinking he is Nobody's Hero.

There were two main things that always prevented Adam from giving in to his

I wont go into the synopsis of Nobody's Hero, as it has been done so well by so many.


Ohh Kallypso, am I glad you gave up your job to become a full time author.

Loved how Master at Arms gave us the initial background to all the characters, wasn't sure at first as there was no HEA, but boy did it work as we got to know the all the players so well before they have their own stories. After finishing it I immediately downloaded Nobody's Angel and Nobody's Hero.

Nobody's hero is another installment in the Rescue Me series. We get to see Adam and Karla's relationship develop. Adam first met Karla as she was running away from home at sixteen. Adam was mush older and had just lost his wife to cancer. He "rescued" her at a lonely bus station and helped her back home. Karla fell in love with Adam in that brief encounter.

He knows that she is too young and takes er love as a foolish crush. Years later, as a retired Marine Master Sergeant, Adam opens a BDSM cl

This is what kinky romance is all about!

Master Adam you made my stomach sink into my pelvis with every command! KA THUNK....KA THUNK!

Kally has pulled it off, all my hopes and dreams for my beautiful broken Adam have been realised.
Karla's love knows no bounds after all the years she has waited for him to realise that she is a woman. There is no other man for her, he might be so much older but he's the one whose held her heart for 9 long years.

Reread for a goodreads challenge.This book just resonated with me the second time around.If I could give it 10***,I would.Adam and Karla made the perfect couple despite their 25 year age difference.It was a May/Dec romance with elements of BDSM .

This story was mediocre for me. It was the one I was most looking forward to after the introductory book.
I couldn't wait to read about Adam and Karla however as I felt with the last book the story took forever to reach its conclusion. There were certainly some intense moments of heat however, I think the whole story could have been condensed significantly.

OMG I really don't know where to being. First of all this cannot be read as a stand-alone YOU HAVE TO START AT THE BEGINNING WITH MASTERS AT ARMS!!! Ever since reading Adam's intro in that story I could not wait to read this book and it was absolutely amazing! Not only were there some of the hottest BDSM scenes I have ever read, but there were so many emotional moments that left me in tears.

When I was not reading this book I was thinking about it and craving it until I had the time to pick it up

I just have to say this series ROCKS! So far, I have loved each book that Kally has written in this series and lose lots of sleep until I am able to finish each one!

This books starts off where Nobody's Angel ended (so please be sure to read the series in order!). Adam is in the hospital after the cougar attack and Karla is keeping vigil at his bedside to make sure that he is okay. Being "nurse" Karla takes a toll on her and she finally decides that it wouldn't hurt if she lies in bed with Adam

I have been waiting to get my hands on this book since reading Ms. Masters first book, Masters At Arms. Adam and Karla stole my heart in that one, and I couldn't wait to read their story in Nobody's Hero. Ms. Masters did not disappoint.

First, if you've not read the first two books in this series, you must do so before reading this one. There are things in the first two books you need to read to fully understand what's going on between these two characters.

I know I'm going to be in the minority with this review, but here goes. I started this series because of the great character development of the Masters at Arms men. But this one started out seeming to lose its emotional connection to the characters. We went from 0 to BDSM in a big rush and along with it we lost the intensity that this couple evoked. Some of the descriptives used by the author were not up to her usual style and I will leave it at that. BUT....even with the first half of this book ...more

This series obviously isn't for me - the main characters have a significant age gap, that wasn't an issue for me until the author kept bringing it up over and over until I felt a little creeped out on behalf of the pair.

Sometimes in a D/s book I find it hard to connect to the characters because of the dynamic in the bedroom - the author is often required to tell us how the sub is feeling and that they're enjoying themselves as the visual telling of the scene may indicate otherwise.

Nobody’s Hero by Kallypso Masters is the 3rd story in the Master of Arms series. It is a wonderful addition to this series and was definitely one that I was highly anticipating its release. Ms. Masters had me hooked in her first book, Masters of Arms, when she introduced these two characters and it was Adam and Karla’s story that I was most intrigued about how it all was going to work out for them. Was he going to be able to let go of his wife’s memories? Was Karla’s declaration of love going to ...more

Master Adam did not disappoint, he was an 'idiot' at times but he finally pulled his head out of his ass! This book was definitely filled with lots of ups and downs, I was exhausted by time I finished reading it. I did find myself skimming again while reading this book, I guess I just didn't see the need to spend 2 or 3 pages describing ....... or re-reading something that had been mentioned once or twice already in the story. But overall another great story by Kal

This review applies to the first three books in the series: Masters At Arms, Nobody’s Angel, Nobody’s Hero.

Hunka, hunka hooha! At first glance, one might just see rippling muscle and dangerous sex appeal. But Masters forces you deeper. These battle-scarred war heroes carry emotional burdens that turn pages and wrench hearts. In addition to the psychological nature of these books, there’s enough authentic BDSM play on display to make a dominatrix weep. My only complaint: this self-pub'd author ca

Wow! Read this book ages ago but when I saw that Kallypso had new book coming out about Damian I just had to re-read the whole series over again. Think Adam is my favourite. When I read it the first time I thought the age difference was a bit too much but on re-reading it I can see how mature Karla is. Really great book and thank god it is Saturday and no work so that I can check out the new book straight away.
I feel like it has to be me, because everyone else loved this and I also gave the prequel in Masters at Arms 5 stars (it's a must read and FREE). I was so excited for Adam and Kayla's story, but it just fell totally flat for me. "I'm so sorry. No I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. He loves me. He loves me not. I love her. I'm incapable of love. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry." AAAAAH, SHUT UP!!! So there is the repetition.

Then there's the fact that I think Kayla was more emotionally mature in the preq
