Reviews of Masters At Arms (Book1), Nobody's Angel (Book2), and Nobody's Hero (Book 3) by Kallypso Masters

MASTERS AT ARMS begins the journey of three men, each on a quest for honor, acceptance, and to ease his unspoken pain. Their paths cross at one of the darkest points in their lives. As they try to come to terms with the aftermath--forging an unbreakable bond--will they ever truly become masters of their own fates? Or would fate become masters of them?
NOBODY'S ANGEL Marc d’Alessio might own a BDSM club with his fellow military veterans, Adam and Damian, but he keeps all women at a distance. When Marc rescues Angelina Giardano from a disastrous first BDSM experience at his club, however, an uncharacteristic attraction leaves him torn between his safe, but lonely world, and a possible future with his angel. 
Angelina leaves BDSM behind only to have her dreams plagued by her Italian angel in a wolf mask. When she meets Marc at a bar in her hometown, she can’t shake the feeling she knows him, but has no idea why he reminds her of her angel. Marc’s search-and-rescue partner, widower Luke Denton, believes Angelina is the angel his wife promised to send him, convincing Marc she’s meant for Luke. While trying to protect Angelina from her abusive ex, though, Marc once again finds her at the
Masters at Arms Club where she turns his safe, controlled world upside down. 

The books in the Rescue Me series are not stand-alone stories. Should be read in order.


Masters At Arms is the first book in this series and is more of a introduction. We get to meet 3 delicious men  and get a bit of their back stories in this book and how they connect with each other and how they begin there journey together. We also get to see their pain and suffering and watch as they slowly move toward the path of healing. 
I really enjoyed this first glimpse into the Masters At Arms and think it definitely made sense to have a book where its the introduction, especially when you have so many characters and have twists and turns and lots of back story, otherwise it would make the other books almost impossible to follow or understand. 
I give the Masters At Arms a FIVE OUT OF FIVE STARS! This is a story that will leave you crying at times, and makes it completely easy to understand each character in a way you wouldn't see without this book. A definite MUST READ.

Now on to Nobody's Angel. I LOVED this book and I mean LOVED it! Marc is probably one of my favorites and definitely had me swooning as he came to the rescue of Angelina. I got to see a bit of a ménage between Luc, Angelina, and Marc. But even as you get a bit of ménage with these three, Angelina's feelings for Marc are WAAAAY stronger.
Marc is the classic sexy Dom with a few issues. He doesn't want to have feelings for Angelina but he can't just forget or leave her especially when she is in danger from her horrible ex Dom who is just an abusive jerk.
Angelina is a gorgeous Italian woman with long dark hair and who is both sexy, shy, yet determined to get past her bad experience with BDSM that her ex almost ruined for her when he started to abuse her at the club by ignoring her safe-word and continuing with the scene they had first played out.
Luc thinks at first that Angelina is the woman his wife sent to him to get him to move on after her death but was just in fact a complete misunderstanding on his part. But he is a very chivalrous man and does not leave her in danger either. He protects her as good as Marc does and in the end everything works out just the way it is supposed to and we even get a glimpse of the REAL woman Luc's wife sent him toward the end, and I for one am looking forward to THAT story.
I give Nobody's Angel a FIVE OUT OF FIVE STARS. Its a magnificently sexy romance with real life-like BDSM that will leave you blown away. LOVED IT!



Retired Marine Master Sergeant Adam Montague has battled through four war zones, but now finds himself running from Karla Paxton, who has declared war on his heart. With a twenty-five year age difference, he feels he should be her guardian and protector, not her lover. But Karla's knack for turning up in his bed at inopportune times is killing his resolve to do the right thing. Karla isn't a little girl anymore—something his body reminds him of every chance it gets.

Karla Paxton fell in love with Adam when she was a sixteen-year-old runaway and he rescued her. Now, nine years later, she's determined to make Adam see her as a woman. But their age difference is only part of the problem. Adam has been a guardian and protector for lost and vulnerable souls most of his life, but a secret he has run from for more than three decades has kept him emotionally unable to admit he can love anyone. Will she be able to lower his guard long enough to break down the defenses around his heart and help him put to rest the ghosts from his past? In her all-out war to get Adam to surrender his heart, can the strong-willed Goth singer offer herself as his submissive—and at what cost to herself?


I was amazed at how well Kallypso Masters did when it came to starting Nobody's Hero off at where it first ended in Masters At Arms. Even though the big age difference kind of spooked me a bit between Karla and Adam, I still thought this book was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. The chemistry between Karla and Adam is stronger then ever and the sex these two have made me squirm in my own seat. Adam is such a strong male character with very strong protective instincts toward Karla. I did think though, that Adam was a bit..harsh with Karla at times all because of his need to try to keep emotional distance between them and he did it quite a bit. I know part of that was because he was almost uncomfortable at times with the huge age gap between them but I thought the majority of the reason was because of his own fears from both his past with his wife Joni and from his time with the Marines. Once he got over these issues for the most part, his caring and loving nature came out and he was quite a charmer and wonderful man to Karla.
Karla is absolutely lovely to me. She is kind, caring, sexy, and so soft hearted. She loves taking care of people especially when it comes to her love with Adam. She does almost ANYTHING for this man and she proves her love over and over again. The one thing I didn't quite care for was the fact she cried a lot. But that could just be because of her very gentle and innocent nature. She is still a strong heroine and absolutely perfect for the damaged Marine.
This story grabbed me from Masters At Arms and held me strong through Nobody's Hero and left me content and satisfied. I give Nobody's Hero a FOUR AND A HALF STARS OUT OF FIVE!! This is a beautiful romance with plenty of realistic BDSM that left me both nervous and excited. A true winner in erotic romance. 



  1. Marie, thanks so much for your lovely reviews! So glad you're enjoying the Rescue Me saga. And we'll be seeing much more of Adam and Karla again in later books, including another one with them as the lead couple. They still have SO much to work on, but that's the way I like to write Romance--realistically and with each book I try to dig deeper into the characters to show why they are the way they are and what they're going to do to make their relationship continue to work.

    Thanks again!


  2. YAY! I can't wait to see more of them Kallypso. They make a great couple. :)
