Book Description

Why would someone choose the BDSM lifestyle of consensual bondage, discipline, dominance, submission, sado-masochism as a means to heal from a traumatic and abusive past?

PRAISE FOR NOBODY’S PERFECT:

…(W)hen a book can move you, make you connect, engage you to the point that it feels as if you know these characters and you care so much for their well-being, not just for their happily ever after…then that is greatness! (Francesca, Under the Covers)

~ ~ ~

Deeply moving, Nobody’s Perfect is everything a romance should be. It’s heartfelt and ultimately uplifting. The characters are so real a reader can’t help but feel for Damián and Savi. The Masters at Arms world is one that will stay with you forever. (Lexi Blake, Author)

~ ~ ~

…Kally Masters captured the heartache and pain that can drive a person to the lifestyle to fulfill their needs and, like a rose, she truly conveyed the beauty that can bloom from those thorns. (Alyn Love, Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews)

~ ~ ~

…(A)s a survivor it touches home. I’ve been with my husband 9 years, married for 6; to this day I have issues… He’s currently reading it and it’s helping him understand me. He’s said sometimes he doubts my love for him because if I loved him we wouldn’t have these issues. It’s not something I could ever explain to him. He’s about 30% through the book and he finally is getting it. So we thank you!! (Chrystal, in a follow-up response to her review)

DESCRIPTION:

NOBODY'S PERFECT is the continuing story of Savannah Gentry (now Savi Baker) and Damian Orlando from MASTERS AT ARMS & NOBODY’S ANGEL (Rescue Me Saga #1) and NOBODY'S HERO (#2).

Savannah/Savi escaped eleven years of abuse at the hands of her father and finally made a safe life for herself and her daughter. But when her father once again threatens her peace of mind—and her daughter’s safety—Savi runs to Damian Orlando for protection. Eight years earlier as Savannah, she shared one perfect day with Damian that changed both their young lives and resulted in a secret she no longer can hide. But being with Damian reawakens repressed memories and feelings she wants to keep buried. After witnessing a scene with Damian on Savi's first night at his private club, however, she begins to wonder if he could help her regain control of her life and reclaim her sexuality and identity.

Damian, a wounded warrior, has had his own dragons to fight in life, but has never forgotten Savannah. He will lay down his life to protect her and her daughter, but doesn’t believe he can offer more than that. She deserves a whole man, something he can never be after a firefight in Iraq. Damian has turned to SM to regain control of his life and emotions and fulfills the role of Service Top to “bottoms” at the club. However, he could never deliver those services to Savi, who needs someone gentle and loving, not the man he has become.

Will two wounded survivors find love and healing in each other’s arms?

ABOUT THE RESCUE ME SAGA: The books in the ongoing Rescue Me Saga are not stand-alone stories and should be read in order. Characters will recur in later books to deal with further issues in their lives as the saga continues and each book builds upon all previous ones. Sometimes main characters even need another book to help resolve major issues affecting their relationships.

BONUS MATERIAL in this version: Kallypso Masters has added the PLAYLIST of music that inspired her as she wrote about the first three couples mentioned in this combined volume, as well as a GLOSSARY OF TERMS and a CAST OF CHARACTERS in these books in the saga.

CONTENT WARNING: Intended for mature adult readers not offended by profanity and graphic (but never gratuitous!) sex scenes. Due to the emotional way in which the author presents the subject matter (past and present), the books might cause triggers while reading. Please read the Author's Notes at the beginning.

About the Author

Kallypso Masters writes emotional, realistic Romance novels with dominant males (for the most part) and the strong women who can bring them to their knees. She also has brought many readers to their knees—having them experience the stories right along with her characters in the Rescue Me Saga. Kally knows that Happily Ever After takes maintenance, so her couples don’t solve all their problems and disappear at “the end” of their Romance, but will continue to work on real problems in their relationships in later books in the saga. Kally has been writing full-time since May 2011, having quit her “day job” the month before. She lives in rural Kentucky and has been married for 30 years to the man who provided her own Happily Ever After. They have two adult children, one adorable grandson, and a rescued dog. Kally enjoys meeting readers at national romance-novel conventions, book signings, and informal gatherings (restaurants, airports, bookstores, wherever!), as well as in online groups (including Facebook’s “The Rescue Me Saga Discussion Group”—send a friend request to Karla Montague on Facebook to join if you are 18 or older and don’t mind spoilers. Kally also visits the Fetlife “Rescue Me! discussion group” regularly). She hopes to meet you in her future travels whether virtually or in-person!

5.0 out of 5 stars INCREDIBLE!!!! October 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First and foremost I want to say that being a survivor myself this book was something that I had to prepare for, as well as take my time with. Kallypso Masters wasn't afraid to delve into the dark and nit and gritty. Surviving acts like what Savannah did isn't something you can wrap into a neat bow and say "All better! Tada!" first the incest for the lead heroine in this book started when she was 8...most of her childhood is repressed and she truly had no idea what would trigger her and what would not trigger her. Damian Orlando a survivor of war had his own dragons to deal with as well, the building of trust was important. I know most were looking for a HOT read right of the book, but that was just unrealistic for these characters. I've said in reviews before that Kallypso writes realist BDSM romance novels.

As the story progressed and Damian started to pursue Savannah(Savi) and things triggered her it was like a journey through my own mind. Many of the triggers I long thought desensitized popped up and I had to put the book down. Please don't take that as a bad thing, I was warned and expected this. If you've not survived the horrors of incest or rape by a strange then you probably don't have much to worry about in the way of triggers unless you are a war survivor. I found myself clinging to the happy playful moments, Damian's birthday and Christmas were things that made me cry happy tears and laugh. When the "play" started and Savannah started to let her playful side out was a real treat it was like. Yes, Kally gets it, survivors go with the flow, you never know until you try and you can only promise to try. Damian only ever asked Honesty and to try of Savannah and when she set her mind to do something she went for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing story, Wonderful book. September 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Kallypso sure knows how to write a story. This is number 4 in her Rescue Me series and I recommend reading them in order. #1 is free. This story is a tough one to read if you have a traumatic past. I recommend lots of tissues and a good support system if you do read it and have issues. She had me crying in the dedication before the story even began. Not being a part of the BDSM scene I love the way the lingo is laid out and everything is crystal clear to me. I don't want to put any spoilers, maybe I will come back and edit it later after more people have a chance to read it. I laughed, I cried, and I couldn't put the book down. This was an emotional ride and totally worth the wait. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Deep read September 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
4.25 Stars

I was not sure how deep this story would go as I followed the writer's progress through her journey as this story came to be. With BDSM being such a hot topic lately, I find myself possessive of those author's I have grown to love yet wanting to share their talents all the same. Those reading BDSM because it is "the new big thing" are the ones that simply don't get the true passion, intensity, trust, and strength it takes for those relationships to work. In Nobody's Perfect Kally Masters captured the heartache and pain that can drive a person to the lifestyle to fulfill their needs and like a rose, she truly conveyed the beauty that can bloom from those thorns.

Savannah Gentry no longer exists. The battered little girl who was afraid of the man she called her father, has suffered enough and is gone but not forgotten. Savi Baker rose from the ashes of that little girl and is determined to be the strong woman her daughter Marisol needs for a mother. Years after freeing herself from the torture she knew as a child, she finally felt safe. She wasn't expecting to see the man who gave her the courage to find that freedom ever again, but when he appeared in her clinic that day, the memories came rushing back. Damian Orlando, the amazing man that let her feel beautiful if only for one night, had gifted her with the child that kept her alive all of these years. Of course he wouldn't know about Marisol, her reason for living, but just seeing him brought back a flood of emotions she was not ready to deal with. Weeks later, and suddenly out of a job, Savi is not sure what to do or how to explain what happened.

5.0 out of 5 stars This one is more inspirational than pleasurable September 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I will not say I enjoyed this book. I liked that Damian and Savi find each other lost and tormented, a commonality with the H/h's in three preceding books in the Rescue Me series. However, unlike the other stories, their intimacy was infrequent and overshadowed with horror. So, if you're looking for a pleasure read comparable to KM's other books, this isn't it. There was just too much damage to navigate. It's unbearable to imagine how anyone comes back from the childhood Savi endured, which gives credibility to the interminable, excruciating scenes that consume this book. But the story had to be told this way, page after page darkened with the depravity that oppressed this very strong heroine. So, while there was nothing sexy about reading her brutal journey, I was overwhelmed with admiration. For Savi's perseverance. And for KM's ability to invent a woman courageous enough to mentally and physically escape the hell that was dealt her. Thank Christ for the happy ending, despite having to swallow it around the mass of misery in my throat.

More About the Author

NEWS FLASH: My new novella, NOBODY'S LOST (a novella inspired by the Rescue Me Saga) is available at Amazon for pre-order. It *will* be released no later than Dec. 9 (the preorder date--but preorders CAN release earlier, so place your order so you get it first).

If you have friends not sure they want to try this series, NOBODY'S LOST will provide a new entry point into the series. THIS IS A STANDALONE! Be sure to tell your friends, but also remind them that book one in the Rescue Me Saga is free!

Despite the fact NOBODY'S LOST is shorter than my other books, trust me that it will be packed with the emotion and the deep connection you've come to expect while reading my books. AND there will be a Happy Ending! I do NOT give you cliffhangers in my Romances. (Well, only in my series introduction, MASTERS AT ARMS, but then I went and combined it with NOBODY'S ANGEL in my free book to make sure all of my books have happy endings.)

PAST NEWS:

In case you missed it, all of the books in this series were updated in May 2014 with NEW COVERS and BONUS MATERIAL (a Playlist for the saga, and a cast of characters and glossary specific to each book). Contact Customer Service at Amazon (phone, e-mail, or live chat) and request updates on any you don't have. If you haven't gotten the combo of Masters at Arms and Nobody's Angel yet, be sure to get that, too! It's free!)

The Rescue Me Saga should be read in order as follows:

MASTERS AT ARMS & NOBODY'S ANGEL (Rescue Me Saga #1), FREE (496 pages in the paperback version--primarily about Marc, Angelina, Luke, Adam, Karla); most recent update April 2014

NOBODY'S HERO (Rescue Me Saga #2), $4.99 (376 pages in paperback--primarily about Adam, Karla, Damian, Savannah/Savi); most recent update April 2014

NOBODY'S PERFECT (Rescue Me Saga #3), $4.99 (472 pages in paperback--primarily about Damian, Savannah/Savi, Marc, Angelina, Adam); most recent update April 2014)

SOMEBODY'S ANGEL (Rescue Me Saga #4), $4.99 (508 pages in paperback--continuation of Marc and Angelina's romance, with character development scenes in the heads of Adam, Karla, Damian, Savannah, Luke, and Cassie, too! Most recent update April 2014.

Coming next, NOBODY'S LOST (a novella or short novel about Megan Gallagher and Ryder Wilson). And then sometime in early 2015: Luke & Cassie's romance, NOBODY'S DREAM (Rescue Me Saga #5).
