Jun 02, 2020 rated it it was amazing
This is an amazing start to a new series but it does end on a cliffhanger. Never fear though because the author will have the next book ready to go before long. I've wanted to see how Master Cordell and Tiffany were getting along since we met Tiffany in Option Number Three. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book. Plus we're getting to meet a character who will be in one of the coming books!! Get ready because this series is going to be awesome!!! ...more

Sooooooo, you know how they say you can’t eat just ONE chip, that is exactly how I feel about Samantha Cole’s books! I’m extremely excited that a new spin off series is coming out, the original Trident Series is my go to re-reads, I even have my husband reading them. Anyways, this little novella which I devoured in one sitting is Master Cordell and Tiffany’s story, and I loved it. Yes, it’s a little cliffhanger-ish but only because it is introducing a whole new location and a few characters that ...more

While the story ends on a cliffhanger it does not detract from the overall story, nor does it impact ones enjoyment of this book. A great start, to what will undoubtedly be a wonderful series, with Master Cordell and Tiffany the mainstay characters of a resort purpose-built for the BDSM community. New characters have been introduced who will undoubtedly feature in future stories makes this book a great start to a new series by a must-read author for me.

Just a fantastic story to start off this new adventure!! Cordell is a Master retired cop and Tory’s cousin Tiffany has been under his command since she had left an abusive relationship.
I love how Cordell is making Tiffany not scared any longer! He is a calm, patienced Dom. The fear and abuse the previous man had heaped upon her makes him very angry! Then their is the lust, steam and love in this book. Tiffany has aways to go. With both of them working to build the new resort, I’m sure there wi

Damn I didn’t want that to end, and end on such a cliffhanger!!! I will be waiting eagerly for the next instalment in this brand new series. Perfect way to introduce the new series with some characters that fans of The Trident Series already know and love while getting to know Cordell and Tiffany we had briefly met. Cordell will melt your heart and that is all I’m going to say!

An amazing introduction into what will be a fantastic new series by Samantha A Cole.

Cordell and Tiffany were amazing and their journey to be together was beautiful.

I can’t wait to see the new resort and meet some new Doms & Submissives.

I love Cordell and Tiffany. I hate the cliffhanger🙃. The atmosphere feels cosy and warm. I am curious how the place it going to look like . I missed the suspense but it was an joy to read. And it makes me looking forward to the future of this series.

Introduction to a new not-to-be-missed series

As introductory books, go, this one bridges perfectly between the Trident security series and the new Master Key resort. We have previously been introduced to Tiffany in Option Number Three of the Trident security series as Mitch's blind date. Realising that Tiffany needs help after a bad BDSM relationship, Mitch pairs her with Master Cordell in a no-"intimacy" pairing to learn what a healthy BDSM relationship looks like. Master Cordell is medically r

This is such an exciting start to a new series by the wonderful and talented Samantha Cole. While it has new characters it crosses over with the well loved Trident team and other characters throughout her stories. As a novella it was quick to read, but the flow on and storyline will leave you wanting so much more. Less about the security company and more about the lifestyle they lead, Cordell and Tiffany have already made an impact in this n

This book ends on a cliffhanger, with the reader unsure about how Master Cordell and Tiffany’s revised relationship will progress, but it just makes you want to reader more (and more and more). Longtime fans of Samantha A Cole will recognize Master Cordell and Tiffany from Option Number Three, and will also rejoice at the brief cameos from Mitch, Ty, and Tori from the same book. The Sawyers are opening a new club on a private island in the Keys, and they approach Cordell to manage it. This novel ...more

Exciting new series from Samantha, it has all the elements of her other books with a mix of private security, law enforcement, BDSM and some mystery and suspense. Great characters most of them we have met in one book or other in other series. It isn't a long story but is one that soon has you investing in these characters and the end result of their relationship. It is well written and has an interesting over all plot that I can't wait to see how it pans out and comes to it's own. The area the r ...more

What a great introduction to a new series. Master Cordell and Tiffany make a wonderful couple and hope they continue their their relationship although the story ends in a cliffhanger and won’t know until later. I didn’t even know I was done with the book until I finished the last sentence, it was so good I was totally engrossed in the story, looking forward to the new characters and the series!

Quick and fantastic read as we catch up on Master Cordell and Tiffany. Can't wait to read the next book in this new series and see how their story finished.

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest and totally voluntary review.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Master Key Resort is the beginning of a new series by Samantha A Cole and I am beyond excited because I have been a fan of Ms. Cole’s since I discovered her Trident series. Every book that she has written has intriguing characters, compelling storylines, and gives me all the feels possible. Master Key Resort is no exception. Ms. Cole has set up this series beaut

This is a new spinoff from the authors Trident Security series. In this book we see some familiar characters and it's great to see Tiffany and how she is recovering from her previous Dom. The Sawyer's have decided to open a new Lifestyle Resort in the Florida Keys and have purchased the entire small island. They are rebuilding from the ground up. Mitch has contacted Master Cordell to run the new place and now Master Cordell and his submissive Tiffany are relocating from Las Vega to Florida. Mast ...more

Master Cordell and Tiffany are great together! I love how this book allows them to expand their relationship, break new ground (literally and figuratively) and move to the next stage. The supporting characters, some that we know and some that we hope to know better soon, fill out the great cast of characters. I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book and can't wait to see what happens next. ...more

This prequel left me wanting more and I can not wait for the rest of this series. I am thrilled to see Cordell and Tiffany begin their story. I was hoping Tiffany would get her story after meeting her in Mitch, Tyler, and Tori’s book, Option Number Three. I love Cordell and Tiffany together. The way Samantha weaves each character’s story into a series is wonderful. Continuing the relationships of characters and sub characters throughout each book in the series allows for storyline and character ...more

This is the 2nd book I've read written by Samantha Cole; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. It's way toooooo short but actually is like an intro into the new series that - I'm sure - will rock your world just as the originally Gang (Trident Security) did. Fabulous. Can't wait for the this series located in the Florida Keys to get started. ...more

What a great start to Samantha's new Master Key Series! We get new characters, a new location, some of our old favs and a doozie of a cliffhanger. Besides it being too short, (yeah, yeah, I get it's a novella...)my only downside is the cliffhanger. I'm not a big fan of those but I am definitely wanting MORE!!!! ...more

This is a great read by Samantha Cole. Cordell and Tiffany have a sweet story. Cordell being the protective dom retraining Tiffany after being abused by her previous master. This is the start of their story. It's way too short. It is a cliffhanger. I look ward to the next book!!

Master Key Resort is the initial book in a new spinoff series from the Trident Security series by Samantha A. Cole. If initial impressions are any indication, this new series has a lot of promise. Master Key Resort includes a BDSM club and resort hotel for those in the lifestyle. In this first outing the focus is on the resorts general manager and resident Dom, Cordel Roberts, a medically retired Las Vegas Police detective, his sub and assistant manager, Tiffany Armstrong and the head of securit ...more

Samantha A Cole has written a great new start to a series set in the Florida Keys. Master Cordell and Tiffany are heading up the new resort. Tiffany has recovered from her abusive relationship, and they are taking their relationship to a whole new level. I can’t wait to see what happens next. The ending was a cliffhanger, but it was a happy one. Hopefully the next book will be ready soon.
I am so frustrated right now!
I expected a full story and not this appetizer that left me wanting for more. I need Cordell and Tiffany's full story, stat.

Master Key Resort is the first book in Samantha A Cole’s new Master Key Series. I’m really excited about this series and absolutely loved reading this book. We’ve met Master Cordell Roberts and submissive, Tiffany Armstrong in a previous book and get to follow their journey.

He has been offered the position of manager and resident Dom for a new resort in Fl ...more

This is the first installment in a new series. It has characters from the previous Trident series but the focus is definitely on a whole new cast of characters. This first story is more about set up and backstory.

The first few chapters were a little slow for me as there was a scene setting and build up. But the whole book was a fairly fast read with no real intrigue or drama, but you don't miss it.

Cordell and Tiffany are most of the focus in this intro and we see them progressing their relations
