In the first tantalizing installment of Jeffe Kennedy's ravishing serial novel
Master of the Opera, an innocent young woman is initiated into a sensual world of music, mystery, passion--and one man's private obsession. . .
Fresh out of college, Christine Davis is thrilled to begin a summer internship at the prestigious SantFe Opera House. But on her first day, she discovers that her dream job has a dark side. Beneath the theater, a sprawling maze of passageways are rumored to be haunted. Ghostly music echoes through the halls at night. And Christy's predecessor has mysteriously disappeared. Luckily, Christy finds a friend and admirer in Roman Sanclaro, the theater's wealthy and handsome patron. He convinces her there's nothing to fear--until she hears the phantom's voice for herself. Echoing in the labyrinths. Singing of a lost love. Whispering her name: Christine.
At first, Christy thinks she's hearing things. But when a tall masked man steps out of the shadows--and into her arms--she knows he's not a phantom of her imagination. He is the master of her desire. . .
My Review:My rating:
by is the first in a set of six serialized fantasy BDSM novels that take a modern and erotic twist to the Phantom of the Opera tale we all know in some way or another.
I'm wavering between a 3-star and 4-star rating as there wasn't any erotic scenes contained in this first book, and let's be honest, that's what I'm reading this for. However, I do declare this a page turner - I MUST find out who the heck the Master is and who was responsible for Tara's disappearance. I'm going to rate 4-stars as I see this being a 4 or 5 star series by the time I'm finished.
So, I like spoilers. I like to know what I'm getting into and I'm not great with surprises. When I don't know what to expect I tend to get edgy and over think things. This goes mostly for books and movies. Once I realized that this story's "world" was one where strange things happen, and, from what I have inferred so far, the Phantom of the Opera doesn't exist, I was able to better immerse myself in the story. If it was me, knowing about the Phantom musical and working in an opera house with a supposed phantom, you'd get massive eye-rolls at the ridiculousness. But Christy, having no idea of Gerard Butler's fabulousness as the Phantom, is only aware that all opera houses have their share of "ghosts" and remains aloof, until he leaves her a rose...
The tale is set in Santa Fe, New Mexico and the author has done a MAGNIFICENT job of bringing the beauty of the town and the scenery to life with her words. My sister used to live in Santa Fe and I had the pleasure of visiting there a few times when I was younger and it truly is the Land of Enchantment.
Act 2: Ghost Aria
ISBN: 978-1-60183-157-6December 31, 2013
In the second seductive installment of Jeffe Kennedy's thrilling Master of the Opera, a young woman falls deeper under the spell of the man who haunts her dreams, fuels her desire, and demands her
With each passing day of her internship at the SantFe Opera House, Christine Davis discovers something new, something exciting--and something frightening. Hidden in the twisting labyrinths beneath the theater is a mysterious man in a mask who, Christy's convinced, is as real as the rose he left on her desk--and as passionate as the kiss that burns on her lips. He tells her to call him "Master," and Christy can't deny him. But when her predecessor--a missing intern--is found dead, Christy wonders if she's playing with fire
If her phantom lover is actually a killer, how can she continue to submit to his dark, erotic games? And if he is innocent, how can she resist--or refuse--when he demands nothing less than her body and soul?
My Review:My rating:
by is the second book in a set of six serialized novels.
Is the Opera Ghost (AKA Master) real? or is he a figment of Cristy's imagination? It has been alluded to that she has mental issues in her past, possibly from a traumatic event. She is beginning to question the validity of the things she has seen.
When she gets to spend some up close and personal time with the Master and he tells her...
I'd prefer you to accept my ropes under other circumstances
then, when she refuses to drink wine with him he also says...
I'm not interested in using drugs to entice your submission, Christine.it is totallySMOKIN' HAWT.
Roman's motives and personality are questioned by a couple of characters and the sudden turn from megabitch to happy chick is also suspicious.
As this is the second book and the plot is still building not too much happened, but it's coming. I can feel it! All six books can be found at
