First and Foremost...
Thank you Shurrn for Buddy Reading with me... Always. Anytime, Any Book

4 Star BDSM Master's Philosophy Manual or 3 Star Erotica/Romance

I just finish Interview with a Master and feel as if I have read two books at the same time. This book was written by Jason Luke who clearly states from my understanding, a Master's experience in BDSM. For the sake of this book and review, I am believing this is true.

The title reflects exactly how the story is structured... Jonah Noble is the elusive, rich, powerful man in his mid thirty's who everyone wonders about. Many articles have been written about his business success; some have hinted to him being involved in the BDSM lifestyle. He has agreed to be interviewed this time by the local newspaper and they have sent Leticia, a young intern to do it. She is wrapping up the questions, thinking she has covered everything when Jonah, frustrated, lashes out and says how juvenile and immature her interview questions were; she could have just read all of the other articles out there and never wasted his time. Something, however, stops him from allowing her to leave.

He offers her a real opportunity if she is willing to take it...

He will tell her everything about being a Master, no question unanswered but it will be an equal situation for her... he will ask her anything and she must answer. Leticia ponders this for a moment as she wants to prove herself to the paper; doing an expose' would be a kudo for her. She accepts.

Here is where I want to explain my ratings for this book... because there really was in my mind 2 books going on at the same time.

First, there was the Erotica/Romance book of a powerful man telling tales to young inexperienced woman... who had her epiphany of realizing small town life was not for her.... something was missing. She broke the long term engagement to her high school sweetheart... searching for more ... moved to the big city to become a journalist. She is his audience... willing to listen and take notes about how he got into this life... what led him to it... when did he know he was a Dom.... how does he train....all personal memories... as he tells her very graphic sexual experiences from his life... there is an exchange of feelings between them of sorts... and this would be what I call the erotica/romance aspect.

This was where there were parts of the book which were hot .... I am telling you scorching, steaming, pulsating, get your BOB battery-ready HOT.

There was so much telling of Jonah's experiences in minute graphic detail it bordered on almost too much... I said almost....there was very little chemistry, though, between theses two... I just didn't feel it. She desired him and what he offered... he seemed drawn to her sweetness and naivete as fresh and new but overall it wasn't overwhelming. I think she was more turned on by the telling of the tales and wish fulfillment of her fantasies. He seemed very involved in the telling of the tales and remembering the past. It also felt at times like he was seducing or grooming her with these memories ....a constant manipulation of one type of another.

What was more interesting to me was the other book I ended up reading.....a Philosophical Men's Guide to Women with BDSM Explained. Here we were treated to the rare chance of hearing from a Master; what he thought about the workings of sexuality.... all it means with men and women. How anticipation can be power during times together... how heightening the senses this way can cause amazing results... how giving begets giving in all strong relationships... meaning a person needs to understand submitting is not for the taking only but really for the sharing of giving to each other...

This part of the book had some strong ideas and I felt the real reason it was written in the first place. The author had serious philosophical concepts he wanted to share... things he felt were worthwhile and the best way to get these messages out... through a book which would reach his target audience.
Many of these messages are thoughtful and actually would be excellent required reading for men ... in some instances... others things mentioned by him felt more manipulative or generalizations which I was not of agreement.

So what are my final thoughts.. well, if you read this with the total mindset of this is an erotic/romance then it was a collection of hot steamy sexual tales and I am not sorry I read it. If you read it for insight from a BDSM Master, it had very interesting concepts; was understandable, educational and worth quoting and sharing with both sexes.

There is a cliffy... be forewarned .... Master Luke is practicing what he preaches... he is giving us book denial with No permission to read the next one yet...

well then they are a match... he claims he does not have a submissive now and she is his girlfriend... so maybe yes... of maybe she coached him...

Very, very interesting. I had previously read that it is in part autobiographical, but he wasn't going to say which parts..... This alone draws me in.... lol

Thanks young lady, grinning right at you..... ♥♥♥♥♥♥


Perry ★TBBSisterhood Blog★ Hmm this whole Vivien Sparx thing is really rather interesting, Wendy. She writes BDSM erotica and now her "boyfriend" puts out a book titled Interview With a Master, whose main draw and marketing angle is that it's written by a real master. I wonder if this whole thing is all really just a clever trick? It wouldn't have had the same buzz had it been just another BDSM erotica written by a female. Could Jason Luke be Vivien writing under a different pen name? I'm not saying it's impossible for it to really be autobiographical, but things aren't always what they seem. It's really got me thinking.


Claire Robinson Great review Wendy x
