Lili Valente has produced again another hot and sweet novella. She expertly twists the romance with the seductiveness of the BDSM world.

As it is a novella, there is little depth to the characters, other than brief history of her past, but it is enough to make readers care. We sympathize with the plights of our heroine, and the love of our hero, Edward is clear. As the the story professes, the love between the two is apparent, and it laces every sinful act they commit together!

A quick little kinky read. I'd love a little more story, but it was good all in all.

Oh holy hotness. I just finished Lili Valente's Masquerade with the Master and she has totally and completely outdone herself once again. Six years ago his sweet and innocent Ivy wasn't ready for the way Edward wanted to play. But now she's a grown and intriguing woman, and he's ready to posses her mind, body and soul. Ivy has never forgotten her heart's mate, Edward, who pushed her away all those years ago. But now that he has returned she's ready to show him just how much she wants to play his ...more

This is a feel good love story. No, mystery, no angst, no intrigue. Just two people who have loved each other even though they have been apart for six years. I liked their chemistry, their steamy love scenes and their kink

A very nice bed-time story. I will be having very pleasant dreams tonight! Not a lot of story, though there is some, but a lot of hot, kinky sex. This couple lives out some rather interesting fantasies. Very pleasant dreams

Short but entertaining

Very short easy read. Sexy and fun but not as much dirty talk as description describes it. A quick filler between longer books.

Masquerade with the Master is the second book in the Master Me novella series. It can 100% be read as a standalone. Edward was talked about briefly in Snowed in with the Boss and Ivy works for Ten but not mentioned. There was a sneak peek of this book at the end of the first book so I was excited that we didn't have to wait long for it.

Six years. That is how long it's been since Edward walked away from the only person he has ever loved. She wasn't ready for him then but he is ready to prove to

Another five star super amazing hot read from author Lili Valente. Masquerade i think by far is my favorite book in this series. I was so caught up in there world from the moment i read the first line in the description. "Leave the mask on princess, but everything else comes off. I'm ready to see what's mine." She wasn't ready for me then but she is ready for me now. How can you not want to read something so intriguing. Edward is a strong dominant alpha male who is also sexy, loving and kind. He ...more

Story 🌟🌟
Performance 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

The narrators of this book are what kept me going, they feel like they are into each other and desperate for each other. However, the love that they claim to feel for each other falls a bit short. There isn't much backstory about how they came to be in each others lives, so it's a bit hard to believe how she forgives him so easily, or how much she loves him because there are barely any facts, just bits and pieces mentioned here and there.

My Opinion 5 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

After breaking it off six years ago Edward is now ready to show Ivy what he really wants in the bedroom after having watched her from afar.

He wants just one night to show her how compatible he thinks they now would be together , now that her horizons have broadened.

This is a fast paced, dirty, fun read that sneaks a peak into the softer area of BDSM and has been artfully put together.

I loved this short story couldn't put it down. For the past year Ivy Prescott was receiving money and gifts so she thought that they were from her brother Aaron helping her out, but when she received a letter from Edward Mulligan telling her that he was anonymous she became upset. Edward had left Ivy broken hearted after six month of dating with no explanation. Ivy accepted his invitation to attened a masquerade ball, but she will go in with some ground rules for him and for herself. Edward is h ...more

Another winner in the series!

This second-chance romance had Ivy and Edward reconnecting in all ways possible! When the time was right for them, their relationship began in earnest and it was a lesson in loving and love as only this author can write them. It was short, wickedly hot and full of lessons for both the master and his pupil. Packed with emotion and all the sexy, I only wished it had been longer!

*I happily reviewed this book

I'm not totally satisfied with how Edward redeemed himself on this second chance. I think it's BS that he would first give up someone he really loves and 'let' her explore with other men and relationships before he claimed her for himself, and hurting her deeply in the process. I simply don't believe it.

Ivy and Edward have a pass, she has loved him since she was a teen. He was her first and he showed her a little of the BDSM but he knew she wasn't ready for him in that way so he let her go. BUT now he is back and ready to claim the only woman for him and Ivy is in every way possible. Will she forget the hurt he did to her and open herself up to see their love never died it just got stronger

I love every book I have read of Lili Valente's and this book is no exception. It was sexy and hot with a love that was so great between the two characters in this book. I just loved it !!! If you are a true romance reader you should definitely read this book. You won't be able to put it down.

3/5 stars

The final novella in this series is all about the masquerade and kinky sex. I would say it goes a bit further than the previous stories, but has a little less of a backstory than book one or two. I still liked it and would recommend if you're looking for a good quick sexy read!

Wasn’t feeling this one. Loved the first one, but this story is not as enrapturing.

Masquerade with the Master is the second book in the Master Me series. I used to call Lili the Queen of the cliffhanger, but she has a new name. Lili Valente is the master of dirty nasty. In the best possible way. She's outdone herself with Masquerade with the Master. It's so filthy that I was looking around to see if anyone was watching me because I knew my face would give me away. Lili's words are brilliant and her ability to use humor with the dirtiness puts her miles above the rest. This is ...more

Masquerade with the Master, the second installment in the Master Me series is one steamy, sexy, erotic story. Edward has been waiting 6 years for HIS Ivy to grow up. To realize who she can become when standing on her own two feet and what an amazing woman she will turn out to be. The time has come for Edward to reclaim Ivy, to prove to her that although it was the hardest thing to leave her 6 years ago, he did it for her.

Time changes everything - NOT! - 5++++ stars

After Ivy's grandmother passed away, leaving her as her sole heir, her televangelist parents steal her inheritance by bribing her grandmothers attorney. They kick her out of her house and take all the money, leaving her heartbroken.

Masquerade with the Master is the second novella in the Master Me series but each book can be read as a standalone. It is a short sexy read full of heat!

It's been six years since Edward left Ivy behind but his feelings for her haven't changed. She needed time to grow up before she could handle his kink. During those six years, Ivy has been supported by an anonymous benefactor and has dabbled in the BDSM world. When Ivy receives a letter from her benefactor, she is shocked to see that it is from

Sweet, short, second chance steamy novella!

Edward and Ivy were together six years ago for a glorious six months. Ivy was thrilled when her brother's best friend finally noticed she was a woman. However, he devastatingly broke her heart when he ended things.

Now Ivy is a little older and a lot wiser and has embraced her submissive tendencies. She's had a benefactor all these years whose helped her with her masters degree and allowed her to intern and finally achieve success in her current professi

Lili Valente has slept under the stars in Greece, eaten dinner at midnight with French men who couldn't be trusted to keep their mouths on their food, and walked alone through Munich's red light district after dark and lived to tell the tale.

These days you can find her writing in a tent beside the sea, drinking coconut water and thinking delightfully dirty thoughts.
