#BookReview – “Master of the Mountain” by Cherise Sinclair


When Rebecca’s lover talks her into a mountain lodge vacation with his swing club, she soon learns she’s not cut out for playing musical beds. But with her boyfriend “entertaining” in their cabin, she has nowhere to sleep. Logan, the lodge owner, finds her freezing on the porch. After hauling her inside, he warms her in his own bed, and there the experienced Dominant discovers that Rebecca might not be a swinger…but she is definitely a submissive. 

Rebecca knows that no one can love her plump, scarred body. But, to her surprise, Logan disagrees and is quite happy to show her just how much he enjoys her curves. Under his skilled hands, Rebecca loses not only her inhibitions, but also her heart. 

Damaged from the war, Logan considers himself too dangerous to be around the enticing little sub. He sends her away for her own safety, not realizing she thinks she’s been rejected because of her size. When Logan’s mountains echo with her voice long after she’s gone, he knows she’s left behind part of herself—and taken his heart. But when he arrives in the city to reclaim her, Rebecca’s phone has been disconnected and her apartment is empty…


In the first book in the Mountain Masters and Dark Haven series, Rebecca thinks her boyfriend Matt is perfect, but their sex life stinks. When he suggests she joins him and his swingers group for a long weekend in the mountains, she thinks it’s the only way to save their non-exclusive relationship. As Matt swings with another woman, Rebecca finds herself alone with a bunch of groping, sex-addicted strangers. If not for the lodge’s owner, Logan, she would’ve been miserable and left out in the cold. Literally.
Logan Hunt and his brother Jake own the rustic lodge and cater to all sorts of kinky people who rent their cabins. Though they never sleep with any of the swingers that come up the mountain, Logan is fascinated with shy, modest Rebecca and wants to help her as she unsuccessfully tries to “swing” like the others. He soon realizes she’s a submissive. As both a Dom and a man, he finds in Rebecca the perfect blend of a responsive sub in the bedroom and a feisty woman in everyday life. They’d agreed to a no-strings-attached affair, but will they be able to say goodbye when it’s all over?
Both Logan and Rebecca are well-rounded characters with emotional problems from past trauma. I felt their happiness and pain, and teared up when they did. The romance and sex developed quickly between them, but their whirlwind relationship felt believable and the start of something permanent. Fear and miscommunication, however, threatened to ruin everything.
I really enjoyed this book and it kept my attention. It’s well written in third person and properly alternates POVs between the H/h. Jake and Simon were also great, and I would love to read their stories.
4 Stars
