DISCLAIMER: This book is part of a series. Spoilers might be contained in the description. For new readers, start your journey with Devlin and Coralie in Masters for Hire, now available everywhere!
They were two completely different people from two completely different worlds. Within two weeks they were married, for better or worse.
Their whirlwind romance did nothing to prepare Coralie Masters for what awaited the happy couple back home. Reality crushes the fairytale existence Devlin had created for her in Las Vegas. Ultimately his powerful seductive hold over her cannot protect her from new, powerful forces outside of their marriage that work nonstop to tear them asunder.
There is much more to fear than her family learning the truth of how and why they met, because there's much more to Dev's story that she could ever know. The mystery surrounding Devlin Masters quickly undermines their love story.
One thing becomes crystal clear. They may be married, but she doesn't really know this sexy, alluring stranger at all.
They love each other. They want each other. They can't stay away from each other.
But will it be enough?
The Groupie Saga titillated you. The Fullerton Family Saga broke your heart. We were only getting started. Book Two of the Masters Saga, Masters for Life, turns up all the Ginger Voight angst, drama and sex like never before.
**Author not responsible for broken Kindles.**
Intended for readers 18+ for graphic sexual content.
Oh the angst! Oh the drama! Coralie's life definitely took a turn towards the chaotic when she met Devlin Masters.
Masters for Life sees Coralie and Devlin trying to settle into their new life together while simultaneously making plans for the future. Coralie still has dreams for herself and her company. Devlin has plans as well but as he's not an open book by any stretch of the imagination, it's hard to know what his true plans are.
And, of course, there are obstacles. In fact, there are quite a few things standing in between them and their HEA. Their courtship was crazy fast and trust seems a sticking factor. And as things come to light and events occur, it seems Devlin may be the biggest obstacle. New players are introduced and the stakes are very high indeed.
I have to say that at times some of the angst and drama were a bit too much for me. There were so many times I wanted to shake both Coralie and Devlin. Or tell them to grow up. Their feelings for one another - their chemistry - is undeniable. But can they both move past the past and get over the hangups and insecurities to truly trust one another? That's the million dollar question.
Voight has spun a riveting story around Coralie and Devlin. I'm dying to know what happens next - especially after that ending. I'm fully invested in them and seeing their story to fruition despite the melodrama. One thing I've always appreciated about Voight's stories are the unconventional heroines. Coralie is one of those heroines, not fitting the standard of beauty which matters greatly since her family's business is in fashion. I relate to Coralie in certain ways and am enjoying seeing her blossom. Devlin is still such an enigma. He has quite a story that he seems unwilling, or at least very reluctant, to share. But I *need* to know. Some of the events though...I'm not sure he can talk his way out of. We'll see.
Voight also provides an interesting supporting cast, although we see less of Lucy and Gus, Gretchen, and Coralie's father, than in book one. I do like how Voight manages to weave in cameos of characters from her other series as well. They all add a little something to the story as well as adding to the character development.
Even though some of the drama was a little much for me, I'm kinda tied up in knots over what comes next for Coralie and Devlin. It's a really good thing book #3, Masters Forever, is already available.
