Mark Compton has had 2 major blows in his life in the last 24 hours. First he found out that his submissive, and someone he allowed himself to get really close to, was killed at the hands of her replacement. And now, he's just been told that his mother has stage 3 breast cancer and needs a double mastectomy. With his personal life in turmoil, Mark will discover a feisty, independent female, a woman whom his mother respects and trusts, in the guise of one Crystal Smith.
Good intentions are all very well in theory; reality is often very different. When Mark meets Crystal Smith who works for Riptide in New York he finds himself dealing with reactions and emotions that are quite new to him.
Crystal Smith is the complete opposite of the sort of woman Mark usually finds himself attracted to; blond, assertive, independent and without a submissive bone in her body, she shouldn't affect him at all. And yet:
"She's everything I don't like in a woman, and yet I can't take my eyes of her."
Chris has also spoken to Mark and let him know that he "Would walk through Hell with him right now" as he deals with his mother's illness. Will this help start to mend the rift between two friends. Will Mark learn to relinquish the tight control he has to have over everyone. This book helps you to realize that Mark is human after all. I can NOT wait for Revealing Us as after that it is my understanding that Mark will have his full length story. I am very much looking forward to that.

I received an ARC copy of this book from Pocket in exchange of an honest review.
Connection to The Inside Out Trilogy that has recently been optioned to STARZ for TV with Suzanne Todd (Alice in Wonderland w/Johnny Depp) producing and includes exciting clues for the series readers but stands alone as its own exciting erotic story.
Mark Compton is the epitome of control. He demands it, he thrives on it and he needs it
as much as he needs air to breathe. He is The Master, losing control is not an option at
least not until the truth about Rebecca's fate leaves him questioning who is he.
This picks up where *Being Me* ended. Mark leaves for New York to be with his mother
during surgery and he meets his match.
We are introduced to a fierce woman named Crystal Smith who isn’t intimated by Mark’s
alpha ways rather it is he who seems to flounder around her, something Master is not familiar with.
A very brief sexual encounter has Mark questioning; was it just sex or something else?
A very short read, I hope the introduction to this woman who has managed
to get under The Master’s skin will reappear in a future book I already like her.
Another side story I picked up on was his college years, something or someone hurt him.
I think The Master needs his own book, I’d like to see more of a connection
with Crystal and the secret that has Master on edge exposed.
Mark is reeling from the loss of Rebecca and suffers tremendous guilt about what happened to her. He is trying to regain control of himself when he is called to NYC to deal with a family health crisis and there he meets Crystal, the newest employee of Riptide. She's unlike any woman he's ever known and she gets to him and tests his control which begins to unravel. We get to see a side of Mark that we have never seen before. He's more real, more human in this novella. Where I disliked him before I am intrigued by him now. Crystal gives as good as she gets and is not submissive in any manner shape or form and much to his dismay Mark is attracted to her in ways that stress his inherent need for control.
Getting this story in Mark's point of view was absolute perfection. What better way for us to see the master come undone than to get it from him. I am so looking forward to his story and to finding out his secrets and the details of things that were hinted at in this novella about his personal history. Crystal is the perfect foil for the master; she is quite the character and she confounds him at every turn. A control freak for the control freak, no better match could I conceive of to see the master get his, to possibly change and perhaps even heal him. There is a cliffhanger and it will leave you wanting more NOW! The master has an epiphany, he has a WTF just happened moment that I found priceless. ARC supplied by the author.
