Marco D’Alessio (what a sexy name!!!!) was not the hero I was dying to read about when I finished Masters at Arms.  I admit I was more enthralled with Damian and Adam.  But I can’t say I was not intrigued by the sexy italian, military Doc, who has a thing for just running away from commitment because of his past failed relationships and betrayal by women.

We know that his one time girlfriend and the woman he wanted to marry, had cheated on him with his own brother.  We know because of her and what she did he left things in bad terms with his brother who then died in the war.  He carries a lot of guilt in his soul and a lack of trust in women.  So he prefers to play and not get involved.

But when he intervenes in a scene gone bad at the club and rescues Angelina from an abusive Dom she starts tugging at his heart.  And that scares the hell out of him.  She’s young, she’s innocent, she’s been hurt.  And when she crosses his path again months later he can’t help but want to be with her.

This was a bit of a sad story.  Both the hero and heroine have been hurt.  But Angelina lets go much easier and trusts him completely.  She does want to experience BDSM.  With him.  And at the same time he’s protecting her from her abusive ex, Sir Asshole.

There’s also a third player here.  We meet Luke.  Luke who lost his wife 7 years ago in an avalanche.  The same avalanche that killed Angelina’s father.  But he keeps this from her.  That’s a big thing not to tell someone that you’re interested in.  But Luke is Marc’s best friend, they would as Search and Rescue together.  And they both meet Angelina at a bar and realize they both want her.

While she does get to play with both, her heart is all for Marc.  Even though Marc wants to push her on Luke because he feels he deserves her more.  But here’s where the part that wouldn’t let me give this a five star rating comes.  Marc had a mask on when he rescued her at the club from her ex.  She didn’t know that was him.  And he goes into this whole elaborate lie so that she doesn’t find out he’s the same guy.  Both men are hiding things from her!!  I think they should’ve both come clean a lot sooner than when they did.

In the end though, I think Marc and Angelina are wonderful together, their coming together is a bit slow but not to say it wasn’t hot.  Even though they don’t “officially” have sex until later in the book, they get plenty of play time and he slowly eases her into BDSM.  I learned right along with her about quite a few new things I had not clue about (and yes I googled them as I was reading).  He likes to call himself a Casual Dom, meaning he doesn’t want to be a Dom 24/7, and he doesn’t like to punish a woman, although he will do it if she deserves it.

With the events in this book with Adam and Karla I am very anxious to get to the next book!!!  And I really want to know more about Luke!PS:  I love how the author gives you an idea on who her inspiration was when writing the characters and for Angelina and Marc she has Monica Bellucci and Raoul Bova.

About Kallypso Masters

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 series. 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 series.
Kally has been writing full-time since May 2011 and Somebody’s Angel is her fifth book in the series, preceded by Masters at Arms & Nobody’s Angel (#1 and #2), Nobody’s Hero (#3); and Nobody’s Perfect (#4).
Kally lives in rural Kentucky and has been married for 30-1/2 years to the man who provided her own Happily Ever After. They have two adult children, one adorable grandson, and a rescued dog and cat.
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 Series Open Discussion” secret group—to join, send a friend request to Karla Montague (https://www.facebook.com/karla.montague.1) on Facebook. For kinkier conversation, Kally also invites you to Fetlife’s “Rescue Me! Series Discussion Group.” She also does live online chats. She hopes to meet you in her future travels!

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

Great big grin here. Wait till you read Nobody’s Hero. Angelina isn’t quite as trusting as you might thing–and she and Marc have some more stuff to go through in Nobody’s Perfect (book 4). Hopefully, they’ll get closer to their Happily Ever After then–but I do leave them at Happy For Now at the end of Nobody’s Angel. I don’t really address the issue of Luke’s lie, though. He’s not as emotionally involved with Angelina. Just got his signals crossed with that dream. As you and other readers will see when they read my series–none of the books are stand-alone… Read more »

Hey Kallypso! I think that is one of my favorite things about the series, that the characters feel real to me. I just had a conversation with a friend of mine last night about how 98% of the men in books we love ARE SOOO NOT real life. I can’t wait to read the next book! I wish I didn’t have books to read for review with deadlines so I could get to Adam & Karla NOW NOW NOW. Those two have a bumpy ride ahead of them. Can’t wait!

These sound like really good reads, but also sound like they need to be read one after another. Thank goodness for Amazon’s one click purchasing. (-;

Thanks for sharing the review!

Thanks Kally for such a great read. I wasn’t overly taken with Marc in Masters at Arms, but in Nobody’s Angel he really grew on me. Like all your characters, they develop and become so real.
And it’s not just girls who like these books!!
