My Review
(By Trish)

Yes, MasterYes, Master by Margaret McHeyzer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow – what a ride…

****4 soul searching stars****

An intense, emotional rollercoaster ride.

**contains spoilers**

This book was definitely different for me. A little tough to read with such a difficult topic to write about.

It made me feel a range of intense emotions from sadness, anger, distress, concern, despair, love, pleasure and happiness.

The Prologue is not wrong to warn you of its distressing nature. It was heartbreakingly sad and I found it hard to read as it brought tears to my eyes – and that was just the first few pages.

The child abuse Ryan endures during his childhood has ruined and destroyed him. He wants to be free of his past and demons but they haunt him every moment they can. He is afraid to live. You can feel his pain in the first chapter.

But afraid is exactly what I am.
Afraid to close my eyes.
Afraid to have them open.
Afraid of all the years that were taken from me.
Afraid of the hurt that exists in every part of my broken soul.
Afraid to live.

From the onset, you are taken on a ride into the life of Ryan. His thoughts, his demons, his fantasies, his battles with his memories, and his recounting of his past abuse. He is sickened with what happened to him and blames himself.

Ryan is just looking to find himself, to be accepted by the people he loves, but the struggles he goes through is agonizing as he cannot accept himself.

Ryan, now and adult, is broken, he is struggling with his past, his present and his demons. He doesn’t know where he fits into life. Even though he controls his working life as a Sergeant Major in the Army – his personal life is damaged and shattered.

It is really heartbreaking to read how this broken man dealt with his pain over the years. His thoughts run wild from his past traumas to his current fantasies. He is looking for a future where he will fit in. His story is so powerful that you can only wish to take his pain away from him.

His past haunts him constantly, he feels ashamed and not worthy of anything and confused about himself. The only bright lights in his life are his daughter, his best friend Mason, and then Stella – who eventually sets him free.

His best friend Mason is stunning in every way possible. Ryan and Mason have been friends since they were kids and have been through a great deal together. Ryan battles with his feelings for Mason, and keeps telling himself “I am not gay”. His attraction is so strong that he fantasies about Mason a lot.

“I’ll just grab us some beers”. As I walk past him my leg brushes up against his, I feel it. That damn crap they talk about in books. The electricity and zing and everything else those love sick horny teenage kids say.
But fuck, I won’t do anything about it.
I’m not gay.

You can just feel that Mason almost seems to sense Ryan’s state of mind and his pain. I knew then, that Mason has the same feelings for Ryan, but didn’t know how to approach it.

When Ryan and Mason first come together, it is erotic and sensual. Mason and Ryan have a strong and intense connection throughout the book. The love they share is pure and beautiful.

Fuck it.
Picking my TV up, I smash it with all my energy to the ground.
Fuck it.
Fuck it all.
I hate it.
I topple the book case over and all my books scatter and spread like the worthless junk they are.
Like I am, insignificant and nothing.
‘Ryan,” Mason swings the door open and yells at me..
I turn and see him standing inside my room; he looks completely bewildered and utterly stunned.
I can’t even hear myself speaking, the rage has taken over and I know I’m yelling but I don’t know what I’m saying.
I hate myself.
I hate my life.
I hate him.
I hate them all….
I can’t control it; I can’t seem to make myself stop.
I don’t want to make myself stop, I just want to hit.
My eyes turn to find Masons’, and it’s right at that moment that I want to smash him.
It’s his fault I’m so desperate to kiss him, it’s his fault that I want to feel what his touch is like and it’s his fault I want to taste him.
“Ryan, you’re safe here,” he says.
Those words stop me dead in my tracks.
You’re safe here. No one can hurt you,” he confidently says as he takes a step closer to me
I’m shaking my head no, not believing what he’s saying.
Everyone can hurt me…..

….. Mason kisses my forehead and I lose the slim hold of control I was barely holding onto.
My arms encircle him and I start crying.
The tears are falling as my spirit finally shatters.
I can’t pretend anymore I’m okay…

This scene goes further between the two men, it is just beautiful, this connection these two men have for each other, the longing and the love they share for each other is just flawless

Stella brings diversity to the mix. She is a strong, sexy woman who knows exactly what she wants. And Ryan sees that from the moment he lays eyes on her. They connect instantly.

Ryan’s attraction to her is intense and sensuous at the same time. He wants Stella, but he still wants Mason. He is confused and thinks that his past has tortured him to hate himself and not understand what it is he really wants.

“So this is your Ryan, Mason. Interesting”, Stella says as she puts an arm around Mason’s waist.
It’s at that moment that I’m torn.
I want him.
But I want her too.
There’s something about her that draws me in.
Her eyes.
The depth to which she looks at me.
“you’re his doctor?” I ask Stella.
“Amongst other things,” she quips.
My eyes fly to hers with my own questioning look. Her gaze on me hasn’t faltered, and I feel so unsure of what’s happening.
Amongst other things. What the hell?
Little does Ryan know what relationship Mason and Stella have, but is interested to find out.
“Do you want to please me, Ryan?”
“Yes,” I moan to her earnestly.
“Yes, what?”
“Yes, Ma’am.”
“Good.” She kisses the highly sensitive skin just behind my ear and with the lightest of touches, she strokes her tongue down my jaw line.

Stella becomes Ryan’s salvation. She shows him what he needs to get control of his life back. She shows him how submission can set him free. She is a natural Domme and he loves her strength.

“I …” Fuck, Ryan. What am I trying to say?
“Look at me and not the ground. I’ll tell you when I want your submission, but for now I want you to look at me.”
“I can’t, I say as I keep my gaze to the ground.
“Why? And the truth, Ryan, I never want to hear a lie from you.”
I hesitate, I try to put my fears into a comprehendible thought, but I can’t.
“Your eyes,” I mutter in the smallest of voices.
“What’s wrong with my eyes?”
“Nothing, but….”
“Don’t make me angry. Tell me what you want to say, and lift your head to look at me,” she says in a tone that undeniably shows her strength.
“I’m terrified.” I glance up to see her features intensify.
“You shouldn’t be terrified of me, you should know that I’ll free you from the devil within.”
I gasp and take a small step back to lean on the kitchen counter.
She takes a step closer to me, and closes the distance between us.
“I can’t look into your eyes, Stella,” I say as she leans into me.
“Address me properly or I’ll leave.” She cages me to the kitchen bench and I’m fighting with every ounce of myself not to flip her around and push her down and kiss her.
I feel a rumble leave my chest with a huge expulsion of air.
“I said,” she starts as she pushes her body into mine. “To address me formally.” She places a light kiss on my lips.
Christ, I want her.
I’ve wanted her from the first time I saw her.
“Ma’am,” I sigh the word as I lean in to kiss her again.
“That’s not the word I want.” She says as her tongue peeks out and traces my lower lip. Her breasts are pushed into my chest, and I’m sure she can feel my hard-on pressing into her lower stomach.
The work comes out, and it feels so natural as it rolls off my tongue.

Stella helps free Ryan from his past by accepting the person he is, showing him how she loves him unconditionally and loving him for who he is and not what happened to him in his past. Ryan learns to love himself and the others around him, and accept himself for who he is. He finds his “worth” in the world.

This book is full of everything. I could have highlight so many more scenes which I loved between these three main characters. But most of all it makes you feel the sadness, hurt, love, passion, hot sex scenes and more.

This is a heart wrenching, beautifully written story about one man’s struggle to find himself and his worth in life from the horrendous past he has endured.

Margaret really knows how to bring the story to life and make it feel real.

Author Bio

**Bound by custom or unique by choice.**

There's something about the written word that's pure magic.

Possibly it's the fact that there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering that they're able to change our lives.

How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?

I like to think of myself as 'unique'. My stories aren't for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be 'normal'.

Normal is subjective.

I prefer to be known as a person who's never been 'bound by custom' but is 'unique by choice'.

Until next time
