SUMMARY
Rhiannon Mirga, known as Goddess at Club Wicked, has a reputation for being a beautiful and unapproachable ice princess. But beneath her hard exterior beats the tender heart of a submissive who yearns for a Master's love despite a nightmare past that makes it hard for her to trust anyone. For Rhiannon there are only two men that can help her overcome her fear, the club's incredibly sexy trainers, Master Rory and Master Liam.


Unfortunately, after a long history Rory and Liam are on the verge of parting ways, driven apart by Liam's refusal to accept Rory's love as anything more than friendship. Despite their own issues, the men find they cannot refuse her plea for help and together they embark on a training session like no other where the Masters are the ones who learn the true meaning of love and surrender.

Book 4 in the Club Wicked Series, MY WICKED MASTERS, will make you want to visit the kinky club just to watch all the drama unfold inside of its walls.

Rhiannon Mirga has some anger management issues. Known as Goddess at Club Wicked where she works as a server, the ice queen has built up so many walls due to her horrific past that she invariably comes off as a cold, heartless bitch. Though Rhiannon tries to ignore the insults, the words still cut deeply, especially since nobody there knows the real her. Rhiannon gathers up the courage to ask Master Liam and Master Rory to train her to be a good submissive, a request that shocks everyone at Club Wicked.

Liam and Rory hesitate to take the wounded woman on, but ultimately can't resist the magnetic attraction to her. The two of them should be going their separate ways since it seems they're constantly at each other's throats. The last thing they need is another submissive to train when they can't even get their mutual attraction under control. As the men fall helplessly in love with Rhiannon, they'll have to deal with their own anger issues as well as hers. Do the three of them have any chance at ménage happiness?

MY WICKED MASTERS is book 4 in the Club Wicked Series and can be read as a standalone novel. Ms. Mayburn has a good writing style and the book was blessedly free from editing snafus, but unfortunately, I really didn't like the way the story played out. I truly disliked Rhiannon, and while I felt horrible that she went through such a horrific experience, I didn't feel like she should constantly be given a pass for her extraordinary asshattastic attitude. Working at a BDSM club after being kidnapped and told to submit would give anyone PTSD, so when she is constantly "triggering", maybe she should consider another line of work.

I enjoy a good BDSM book that isn't a cookie cutter of every other novel out there right now, but I really didn't see MY WICKED MASTERS as a BDSM book. Aside from the fact that Rhiannon called Rory and Liam her Masters constantly, even in everyday situations--which drove me nuts--I hated her extreme emotional flip flopping, smacking a bar bitch one second and in subspace the next. A light spanking does not a sub make, nor does calling someone Master make them so. Liam and Rory were so far from the commanding and stern Dom that it was laughable to call them that…and their "training" didn't exist.

The book topping out at almost 400 pages, I grew increasingly agitated by Rhiannon's whiny jealousy, anger, rudeness, anger, neediness and clinginess that it took a real effort to even finish this book. She was a horrible main character, and not in a "you're so awful I love you" kind of way. The saving grace of this being a 1 star rating was the sexual chemistry and tension between Rory and Liam--that was delicious and excellently written. Other reviews have applauded Rhiannon's bravery and the emotional impact of this story…personally I was just annoyed.
