Nobody's perfect, mi sueño, but you're about as close to perfection as I've ever known.

Oh, Damián and Savi – you both just about broke my heart in Masters at Arms and here you both are, breaking it all over again.

Years have passed since their one perfect day at the beach cave and the years have not been kind to either of them. Savi has managed to escape her sadistic father and build a life for herself and her daughter, also Damián’s daughter but he has yet to find that out, when her brutal past

Wow, what an emotionally charged roller coaster ride. It was hard to read at times, but I loved every minute of it. (Maybe I'm a closet masochist? :)

Savannah's journey from abused child to survivor is a dark one. I found myself taking constant breaks to calm down. I can't remember reading anything effecting me in the same way.

At the moment I'm struggling to write this review, so I'll just say that reading Savie and Damian's journey was fantastic. Anyone familiar with or interested in 'harder' B

Nobody's Perfect was 1000% worth the wait. It's a story about healing, post traumatic stress disorder, patience and love. Note: This is not a hot or sexy story. It is more of a therapeutic read with BDSM used mainly as a tool. If you loved To Command and Collar by Cherise Sinclair and Slave by Sherri Hayes, you will love Nobody's Perfect.

The abuse and incest described in this book is very graphic, horrifying and sad. To think that some people have gone through this type of abuse is heartbreaking
This book was a struggle for me in several ways. I struggled to keep reading it, I struggled to suspend my disbelief, and I struggled to find the erotica in it. I did succeed in the first, but not with the second and third issues.

Like many, I was looking forward to Damian's and Savannah's story. The series title is Rescue Me and these two needed some serious rescuing. Both had lived through horrors beyond my ability to imagine, and to be honest I worry that my opinion of the book is a result of

I have looked forward to Damian and Savannah's story after reading the prequel in Masters At Arms and feel like it's taken forever to get here. The story was pushed back months and months after the tentative release date so I could not wait to start reading upon final release. Unfortunately, after 50% and skimming the rest all I can say is how disappointed I am with the story. To me, this did not even feel like the same author's voice as the prior books. I realize the main focus of the story is

Nobody was a much darker turn in the Rescue Me series. In Masters at Arms (Rescue Me Saga, #0.5) by Kallypso Masters , we were introduced to Savannah as a damaged prostitute, that has a brief fling with Damian. Honestly in that tease, I found myself bored with the storyline, almost bypassing this i

I have to agree with some of the other reviews on this book about it being more of a BDSM instruction book than a actual BDSM romance. There was not any romance really. I didn't feel a connection between Damián and Savi...nothing like the connections in the previous books from this author. The referencing of Chico and Chaquita for their genitals really put me off. I live the lifestyle and I have never..ever..heard a "real" Dom refer to his genitals in such a way. It wasn't manly to me at all. I ...more

So in Masters at Arms we get to meet Damián and Savannah, two star-crossed young lovers who get to spend a single tonight together in a really dark Romeo and Juliet tale (and I realize that the original version of that was pretty dark, too).

In Nobody's Angel we get to see Damián again - only now as the big bad bullwhip-wielding dark and mysterious Dominant.

In Nobody's Hero we get to see Savannah again - as Savi Baker, the totally together and competent Social Worker/Counselor.

Too weird for me. She was abused/molested by her sadistic father who also used her to pay for his other business transactions. I didn't even finish it. She had a child years ago with the only man she willingly slept with. And she escaped her father when she found out she was pregnant. Now that the baby is now a little girl her father has found them again. So she runs to the man that got her pregnant and is also big into sadism. And the whole time he's trying to show and tell her he loves her she ...more

A story of two beautiful but broken souls, who struggle to heal and fight to survive.

Savannah and Damian met at Masters at Arms. They were broken souls that are battling different demons during that time. In Nobody's Perfect, it is eight years later when Savi runs to Damian for protection.

The story for me is more of like a road to healing. A journey of someone who has been abused but is strong enough to live and a hero who deems his life unworthy and yet is brave enough to continue living.

I waited so long for Savi and Damian's story, and I was not disappointed. I got a first version, so there were editing issues, but I know the author is working on getting out a new clean copy.

I thought how Savi's and Damian's issues were handled was perfect. We didn't get any real sex between them until the end (though Savi had a few orgasms starting around 60% I think?), but I think to have put it in before where it was would have been unfaithful to the story and unrealistic. Savi had lived a h
Much awaited and much anticipated addition to the Master's at Arms series. Of all the Master's stories I always knew that Nobody's Perfect would be the hardest one to get through and one that I would love.

From the first time Savannah and Damian met 8 years ago in the hotel, they affected me deeply. My empathy knows no bounds when it comes to these two characters. Together they bring out all my protective nurturing instincts to hold onto them, and keep them safely cocooned away from their harrowi

After patiently (*SNORT) awaiting the release of this book, when I finally bought it, I stayed up all night reading it.

All I can say is wow.

This is a bit different from the other books. It is a lot darker and so much more emotional. But what an incredible story.

Savi's struggle to deal with her incredibly traumatic childhood was almost difficult to read at times. I lost count of the times I cried during this book. She has such a difficult past, yet you are cheering for her and she comes out so st

I will not say I enjoyed this book. I liked that Damian and Savi find each other lost and tormented, a commonality with the H/h's in three preceding books in the Rescue Me series. However, unlike the other stories, their intimacy was infrequent and overshadowed with horror. So, if you're looking for a pleasure read comparable to KM's other books, this isn't it. There was just too much damage to navigate. It's unbearable to imagine how anyone comes back from the childhood Savi endured, which give ...more

1st time I read this I loved it and it was a 5 star read for me.
Unfortunately, like the other books in this series, .5 up to this one, they fell short on the reread.
Excessive repetition. Mostly in the mc's thoughts.

The next book in the series I have never read. Hopefully that will bring the rating and reading enjoyment up for me. Considering I have the next 3 or so books in the series already, I really need book #4 to be a great read.

The healing of Savannah Gentry

This book takes us through Savannah's life from 8-19. Then onto Savi Baker's life 19-27. And then finally back to Savannah's life.

Savannah lived through the most horrid things from 8-19 from her sick and perverted father and his business associate, Lyle. The only bright light during that time was her one night with Damián Orlando. After that wonderful night in her otherwise nightmare of a world she was gifted with a child. The pregnancy gave her the strength to run
I wanted to like this book more, but it didn't really wow me. I could only read it in small doses. There were things I like and equally dislike about the book.

Damian and Savannah (Savi) has a history together, which is found in Masters at Arms. The review will be a bit spoiler-y if you haven't read the first book. After their one day at the beach, Savi ends up pregnant and runs away from home while Damian joins the military. 8 years later, they meet up again in Nobody's Hero although Savi has ch

This author develops the characters well and the story line was good. If you are into BDSM then you will like this book. Damien is a Dom yet he wasn't as assertive as I would like in a male lead. Yet the way he was fits well with Savannah's fear of men so I could accept it.

One aspect i didn't like was the way both Damien and Savannah gave their genital parts names. I just didn't think it fit well with this story with Savannah having such aversions to sex one minute then next minute labelling her

Kallypso Masters tackles difficult subject matter head-on. Rather than glossing over PTSD and abuse issues and making the characters have miraculous recoveries, Kallypso shows the difficulties people who suffer from these problems have in dealing with everyday life. Triggers can occur at anytime (words, smells, music, situations) and the journey to healing is long and complicated. The memories can never be erased but the survivor's "perception" can be changed from negative to positive.

What an emotional roller coaster ride! To me, this was different than the previous books in the series because of the issues it dealt with on such a raw, real level, but I was still completely captivated. I know that this was a labor of love for you, Kally, and I must say that you have produced yet another wonderful story the series. I now eagerly anticipate the next story!

I was not sure how deep this story would go as I followed the writer’s progress through her journey as this story came to be. With BDSM being such a hot topic lately, I find myself possessive of those author’s I have grown to love yet wanting to share their talents all the same. Those reading BDSM because it is “the new big thing” are the ones that simply don’t get the true passion, intensity, trust, and strength it takes for those relationships

I have been procrastinating in writing this review because I feel that I need to write something amazing to explain how I felt. But now I realized that is not what's going to happen, so I'm just going to tell you how this book made me feel. And in my opinion, when a book can move you, make you connect, engage you to the point that it feels as if you know these characters and you care so much for their well being, not just for their happily ever

Kallypso is a master wordsmith. This novel in the BDSM genre is NOT what you expect. I'll be honest, I love this series and author, but I bought this book over a week ago and it took me that long to work up the courage to read it. I knew it wasn't going to be an easy book to read, and as much faith as I had in the author I still was unsure how she would pull this one off. I'm sorry I didn't have enough faith in you Kally.

I waited a while to read this book… it was suppose to be out months ago… but it didn’t… I have to say, I’m a little let down… don’t get me wrong… I liked it…but I wanted to LOVE it and I just couldn’t.

I know there was extensive traumatic abuse and it took the entire book to get through that… but I lost touch with the main characters at times only because the book was so focused on the past abuse and how burying it just made the present that m

I will keep my review very brief. This read like an instructional manual. I wonder if the author had complaints on her lack of knowledge of the scene in previous novels. She is well informed now and she offers that knowledge to her readers. Unfortunately this removes the storyline. The internal dialogue of Sevi takes center stage to anything and everything else. The focus is on PTSD and coping with tragic events. My problem with this, while very informative, this isn't a non-fiction read. I have ...more

Rescue Me is a tremendous series. Unlike many other recent BDSM-themed series, the stories by Kallypso Masters are more positive. The main characters are several retired/medically discharged Marines who served together and who shared trauma in the Middle East. They open a "kink club" called Masters at Arms where they satisfy their dominance needs, rescue damsels in distress, and support one another like extended family throughout their struggles with PTSD and developing relationships.

I would say this was my favorite book in the series. I was very intrigued on how this story would play out and I wasn't disappointed. I have only read a few stories in the BDSM world and usually have to take a break while reading them, but this one kept me moving forward. I felt for both characters especially Savannah aka Savi. I felt this story was very explicit in details on how she was treated from age 8-19 though you have to know to understand the way she is and how she reacts to certain sit ...more

WOW! This was a really hard story to read but totally worth it. The Abuse of Savannah as a child/teenager was heartbreaking and Damian went through his own sort of hell. Kallypso Masters does a wonderful job with how she wrote this book, I have enjoyed this series but I think that Savannah and Damien might just be my favorite couple after reading this.
