She caught my attention the first day I was seated in her class.
Her dark red hair fell in waves down her back and her alabaster skin appeared to sparkle under the lights of the lecture hall
I’d admired her from a distance, never speaking or doing anything to draw attention to myself.
Each day that I spent watching her in this room, I noticed how her eyes would flick up to me. She was wary of me – frightened – and she had reason to be.
Allow me to introduce myself…
My name is Holland Strong and at 21 years old, I’m the youngest Master within a society of wealthy and influential men.
Claire Elliot is my psychology professor in college – that is, at least, until I make her my first courtesan.
She believes she knows everything about how the mind works…
…and I believe I can prove her wrong.
Holy FUCK! Lily is the Master! I am Her Master’s Reader… 5 beautifully broken down and rebuilt mindfuck stars!
“I believe, and this is just my theory, that if a person is able to understand the mechanics of how Stockholm works, a person can take steps to prevent it from occurring within them if they find themselves in an abusive or captive situation.”
I’m not really sure how to write a review worthy of this book. I guess I’ll start off by telling you to read the warning. Then after reading it; you still want to travel down the rabbit hole, then by all means… drink that fucking Kool-Aid because you’re in for an amazing trip.
“She was weary of me, frightened, and she had reason to be. I’m a trained predator; a man who has been taught the fine art of trade.”
I have no idea where to start with this and I’m just typing right now because my mind is mush. Her Master’s Teacher is the second book in the Masters series. The first book is Her Masters Courtesan and that book also blew my mind. But if you think that these two books will be the same story with different characters; you are very, very wrong. This is a complex story that will keep you guessing until the very end. How does one break an unbreakable mind?
Holland is the youngest Master in training and he is under the careful yet sinister tutelage of Aiden, who we met in Her Master’s Courtesan. Holland is young, arrogant, strategic and has some seriously seductive good looks. Claire is Holland’s psychology professor who also happens to be a psychologist and he has his claws aimed in her direction.
“She would beg. She would cry. She would fight for her life. Eventually, and ultimately, she would be my next courtesan.”
Lily White is an author who stays true to her characters. The warnings are very valid and should be read before you pick her books up. When she says this is not a romance, she means this is not a romance. Its dark, twisted and there is even a moment of strange and unusual. You’ll cringe and cry and have WTF moments. If you have a hard time with rape, dubious consent and/or non-consensual, then you may want to stay away from this book. If you’re still interested then I implore you to pick up her books and give them a try. Her writing is like poetry. Every word has a purpose so pay close attention.
If you’ve read Her Masters Courtesan then you will absolutely love Her Masters Teacher. Lily’s books reach inside me and show me things I never thought I would see, read about or even happen. She is the Master at confusing my vagina. I’m running around the house screaming NO! YES! NOOO! YESSS! My mind is a ping pong match and I’m kept on the edge of my seat waiting to see which side of my mind I want to rest on.
I can’t really say anything else about this without giving things away. I’ll just end with this… Lily White, you are the Master.
Spoiler Quote –
“I am a Master. I manipulate every person, every situation and every thing. It is what I do… even Holland was not immune.”
I received a copy of this book via the author in exchange for an honest review.
Lily White is a dark writer who likes to dabble on the taboo side of eroticism. Most of the time she can be found wandering around aimlessly while her mind is stuck in some twisted power play between two characters in her head. You may recognize her in public by the confused expression, random mumbling, and occasional giggle while thinking up a scene. Lily’s favorite things in life are reading, thinking about reading, buying books for reading….and writing. Her other secret pleasure is meeting with her plot editor in public to discuss her books and watching the shocked expressions of the people around her that don’t realize she’s talking about a book. When Lily is not reading, writing, wandering or freaking out innocent bystanders, she’s sleeping.
