She caught my attention the first day I was seated in her class.

Her dark red hair fell in waves down her back and her alabaster skin appeared to sparkle under the lights of the lecture hall

I'd admired her from a distance, never speaking or doing anything to draw attention to myself.

Each day that I spent watching her in this room, I noticed how her eyes would flick up to me

Nothing makes my little dark and twisted heart go pitter-patter more than reading a Lily White book. Her Master’s Teacher is a stunning combination of a student/teacher premise with taboo and captivity themes that lends itself to some serious introspection for all readers. As much as I loved the chilling and brutal mindfuck this book had to offer, sadly it is not a book that everyone is suited to read so my warning: those looking for a progressive romance within

Okay so I haven't actually finished writing my review for this book yet. It's not an easy book to review, not because it was bad but because it was so complex and had so many dimensions to it. Whenever you read a book by Lily White, you can always expect something completely different and she did it again with Her Master's Teacher.

It's Dark Erotica, but it's not as simple as that. It's so much more than just dark, the dark genre has grown so much and as a reader I've started taking how dark a b

To everyone else Holland Strong was just a popular student. But to those in the know, he was an underground prodigy. As the youngest Master in training under the tutelage of the best Master, he had a reputation to uphold especially that he chose someone that proved to be difficult to train.

Wow I'm speechless with this book lets just say this story was EVERYTHING and more.

I read Her Master's Courtesan in February of this year. I clearly declared I was not a dark reader but was compelled to read it due to all of my pals singing the praises of the book and author, Lily White. The read was strong, well written and captivating.

Well, I still do not gravitate to dark, sex slave, Stockholm Syndrome stories but when I found out this second part in this twisted series was out... I pulled up my big girl panties and dove in. This did no

Dark, twisted and intense, this book left me more than one time with my mouth open. This is without a doubt one of the best dark romance I’ve read so far!

Holland Strong is a 21 years old Master-in-training within an influential society of men. He’s the youngest, but he had the “pleasure” to not only witnessing, but participating too in the systematic breakdown of a human being.

“Physically, Holland Strong was built for seduction. Mentally, however, he was without morality or humanity. He was a

OK, so I know that it’s all kinds of wrong and morally objectionable but these Masters series books from Lily White are like literary crack for me. When it comes to dark erotica, these books simply just push all the right buttons – she really does seem to have the combination of taboo erotica and abject horror down to a perfect balance. I definitely don’t agree with sex trafficking, rape or any of the subject matter in the book and, for sure, I wouldn’t want to be abdu
I don't know if I feel upset or relieved that this book was not as dark as Her Master's Courtesan.


Anyway, I loved it, it was thrilling, erotic, heartbreaking and most of all addictive, because I just could not put it down. Again, I have to applaud Lily White for writing something so fantastic that seriously messed with my head!


It is a dark romance so you must take the warning seriously, because it does include violence.

”I am a Master. I manipulate every person, every situation and every thing.”


Lily White delivered a sequel that was as strong as the first book of this series. This was an exciting and mysterious story that was at times disgusting and at times very steamy.

Job well done Lily White, I may have guessed the twists on this one but it still packed a punch.

On a silly note, funny title and cover if Edward ever gets a book…

Not going to lie, I wasn't too sure if I was going to like this one due to the unconventional ending of book 1, but I ended up loving it.

Claire Elliot is a 31 year old psychology professor and from the word go, 21 year old Holland Strong knows that he wants to own her. He is one of the Society's Masters in training, a very prestigious role within his dark and disturbing world. He is being taught by Aiden who is the lead in Book 1.

Review for Her Master’s Teacher by Lily White (ARC provided for HONEST review)

What. The. Hell.
Mind Effingly amazing.

I could pretty much leave the review with those few words because it pretty much sums up every last thought in my head in regards to the insanity that is Her Master’s Teacher. Lily White, you my Dark Queen, never cease to turn me into a ball of anxiety. You have perfected the craft of dark mind fuckery in a way that has never been done before.

Allegedly Holland Strong is the youngest master-in-training. At 18 his training started. At 21 he is going through the process of learning how to procure orders, research targets, obtaining women and training them to be courtesans. The story tells us that not every person in the business is like him - each of them have their own style, their own flair of power and prestige. Holland Strong uses his youthful looks and dimpled smiles to lure, and enrapture……………..but we should let him fool us becaus ...more
