Tired of his mother bugging him to marry a nice girl from the old country, Konstantin agrees to meet her friend’s daughter when she’s shipped over from rural Russia.

Naturally obedient and submissive, Varushka is everything Konstantin wants in a woman. The fact that she’s so naive and easily scandalized arouses him but makes him feel guilty. Training the girl to be his slav

Another surprise for me!! I've been waiting for Konstatin!! He's so... yum! Although honestly I didn't have a single imagination about what's he looks like but I know he's very handsome man. For me, he's like a real Dominant in their BDSM world. Not so much like Banner and Ambrose. I'm surprised I liked his story than his friends. Lmao!

Konstantin has to break-up BDSM relationship with his two girls because he's betrothed by an unknown Russian girl. He didn't know her at all beside from

Oooo! So I was sent this ARC for possible blurbage, and I LOVED IT.Read it in one sitting (not hard to do when you are laid up like back troubles like I am right now). This was so great and just what it took to get me out of my reading slump. Konstantin owes his grandma (who is back in a poor part of Russia) and decides to let her pick out a bride for him - Varushka. Varushka is one of those wide-eyed innocents a la Julie Garwood that you SHOULD hate but you just can't. Seriously, she's adorable ...more

Out of the Master’s Unleashed series, I have to say that I liked this one the best! All of Sparrow Beckett’s books in this series are entertaining and these three Doms, Ambrose, Banner and Konstantin are just plain fun. Getting to see them all again, as well as their women, was a real treat, and while this story can be read as a stand-alone, reading them in order just makes them that much better. It’s like getting to see old friends I haven’t

Although this could be read as a standalone I recommend starting from the very beginning to get to know the characters.

In the previous book we learn that Konstantins grandmother wants him to marry and has arranged a marriage for him from his hometown in Russia. Although he has never met her he does have a picture of the woman who shall be his wife.

This story begins with Konstantin in Russia meeting his soon to be wife, Varushka for the first time. Varushka is impressed on how good looking and w

Awesome. This was a great book to finish out the series. After watching his two "brothers" find their perfect subs, it was time for Konstanin to settle down as well. This book some great emotion and really pulls the reader in to feel the emotions of the characters within. This book reminded me so much of my relationship with my Dom, the braty nature I have but also the way he can make me melt with just a look. It was bittersweet to finish the series but it was a great book to close up the story ...more

I felt Varushka was too innocent to be true. Are there people that ignorant in this day and age?
Also, Konstantin was a jerk. Just springing the lifestyle on her and expecting her to like it! Insane.

Other than that, the book was sweet. Lol.

Really almost 4.5 - this one was the best of the series. I liked that this finds Konstantine - who up until now has been a little over the top usually with 2 girls at a time - being pressured into a 'mail-order bride' by his grandmother. Varushka is a sweet, innocent girl from a small Russian town and Kon is immediately smitten. She appeals to his dom side - he wants to protect her and corrupt her. Varushka is attracted to him and she has some innate submissive tendencies that Kon encourages. Th ...more

I really love this author. I was amazed and impressed with the previous two books. I told everyone I know about them - even people who don't read erotic romance or BDSM. But this book... This is the third installment in the Masters Unleashed series and I was beyond disappointed. I got to about 30% in this story and I was so bored and irritated that I had to quit.

I have no doubt that by the end of the book, the "heroine",

Review for To Have and to Master by Sparrow Beckett

Well played Sparrow Beckett, well played.

To Have and to Master is the exact opposite of what I had expected. Throughout the series, Konstantin has been the dirtiest, kinkiest of the three friends. It made sense that this would be the dirtiest, kinkiest of the books as well, but surprisingly it wasn’t.

Was it dirty? Yes. Was it kinky? Hell yeah. Did Kon maintain the coldness he’d managed with all of his past relationships? Not even a little. Oh ho

To Have and To Master is the 3rd book in the Masters Unleashed series and it's the one I was waiting for. Konstantin is wanting a family of his own, just like Banner and Ambrose. He see their love for their women and he wants it too. There are two problems. One...the other women that he has had are not shaped to be a good wife so he asks for his grandmas help and he decides to marry a woman in her village where she is lives in Russia. Two...he is a very kinky man and even know it is his pleasure ...more

I love this book. I mean I really, REALLY REALLY love this book. It's the best book in the Master's Unleashed series and like they say, save the best for last.

I know in my reviews in the previous books I raved about how much I love Kate and Banner. How they're so freaking adorable and I want to hear more about them. Then I was introduced to Everly and Ambrose and then I was all "Kate and Banner who?" because Everly is just amazaballs. Then, I get to read about the hot sexy Russian Konstantin(wh

Oh gosh, this was simply the best book in this trilogy by Sparrow Beckett! Konstantin was a bit elusive in the other books, always appearing very hands over; therefore, I was excited to finally get his story, as I knew he would fall hard.

Varushka is quite the character - for someone so tiny, she really packs a punch I loved the cultural element that she and her family brought to the story. It was definitely not the norm that Konstantin was used to and seeing him struggle a bit was quite comical

I really wanted to like this one on account of the arranged marriage trope, but perhaps I'm not the sort of reader who can enjoy an extremely naive heroine.

Varushka comes to America after spending her entire twenty-one years on this earth in a small, Russian village. The things she was unknowledgeable about just became too much and made a bulk of the book slow down to a snail's pace for me. Plus the sudden mistrust of Kon by Varushka's parents seemed to come out of nowhere.

I THINK this was my favorite of the three Masters Unleashed books. Of course I say that after reading each one so I can't wait to see what Sparrow Beckett comes out with next. I wanted to kidnap Konstantin and keep him all to myself. Varushka was perfect for him. I loved her Russian family dynamic and how it played into the story. I also liked that Konstantin pulled himself from a checkered past and that his past continued to haunt him. This book deserves more than five stars and I'm a huge fan ...more

Can 2 writers actually pen such a shamefully stupid story ... Well the answer is unfortunately a resounding YES, Sparrow Beckett is a sad joke of an author !! Y ou should pare yourself and try reading a true romance :) Cheers !

Another great one from Sparrow!

I thought Banner and Kate was good. Then I thought Ambrose and Everly were great. But Konstantin & Varushka are amazing. Corruption fantasies def hold a new appeal. Great job Sparrow!

gah! So good, I almost bypassed this one as another virgin story, eye roll, so glad I didn't though because I literally couldn't put this one down. There are two other books before this one that I plan to hunt down. I did just download one by Sparrow Beckett thats a free kindle unlimited book. Off to read it now!

The third in this series had the characters that had a different formula than the first two. Some of the passion scenes and techniques were similar but the plot was improved.

What can I say about this book apart from the fact I loved it. Konstantin and Verushka are great characters. i loved her innocence and her zest and joy for life. That was wonderful to watch. And Konstantin showed his soft side. I an't wait for the next book in the series.

So, Konstantin knows how to be compassionate? What?! The compassion and the gentle way he handles Varushka is so touching. My 2nd favorite in this series.

To Have And To Master finishes up Sparrow Beckett’s Masters Unleashed series with Konstantin’s story. Each book is devoted to one of three “brothers”. Banner, Ambrose, and Konstantin “Kon” have been best friends since they were teens. They’re all gorgeous, commanding, successful businessmen who want for nothing except to find that one woman to love, cherish, and live the BDSM lifestyle as their submissive and wife. In other words, these guys are hubba hubba hot and pretty much my ideal kind of m

The third book in Sparrow Beckett's Master's Unleashed series is just out and it features the enigmatic, dark, private Russian, Konstantin.  This man happily shared his girlfriends (yep, plural) with his best friends when the crisis called for it but times are a changing for him.  He's settling down and taking a wife... taking her literally from Russia and bringing her to America.

He's been talking about doing this during the last two books and I couldn't figure out why a guy like Konstantin woul
