Two Masters for Alex by Claire Thompson

Liam, Daniel and Alex's first book

Two Masters for Alex

By Claire Thompson

Book Blurb:
Two Masters for AlexClaire ThompsonWhen Alex signs up to learn what it is to truly submit within a D/s relationship, she expects to be ravished and adored. Instead, she finds herself in the middle of a very hot m/m love affair. To her chagrin, she is not the subject of their torrid passion, but the object, a girl toy expected to conform to the rules of the house or suffer the consequences.

Liam and Daniel, at first eager to bring another into their D/s play, find their carefully controlled world turned upside down by the sexy, eager, but sometimes less-than-submissive beauty in their midst.They are forced to deal with sometimes heart-wrenching, sometimes hilarious issues that arise when two become three. 

In the unfolding passion play, each must confront jealousy, trust and their own understanding of the romance of a D/s relationship. Alex must look inside herself to discover if she has what it takes to remain in the arms and hearts of the two men she calls Master

Two Masters for Alex and then the second book "Two Loves for Alex" are two of my favourite Claire Thompson books. If you love the first book, you will immediately purchase the second book because you need to see how their relationship grows. I know I sure did.

Two Masters for Alex had a great story line. I have to admit that most of my M/M/F books are where the woman is adored and practically worshipped so it was totally interesting to read how the M/M were the main lovers and the F was secondary. It was new for me. Two Masters for Alex gave me an excellent perspective on how D's work in a relationship and I was actually jealous of Liam and Daniel's relationship. They are totally in love, committed to each other and OMG, totally sexy. Having Alex be apart of the family was an interesting dynamic. I liked Alex and I loved how she slowly became apart of their family too.

I loved how Claire Thompson wrote a totally believable story. (Ok in my little world it was believable) She wrote about the trust struggles between the men, the sometimes loneliness Alex felt being a "toy" or "play thing" and I appreciated how Two Masters for Alex wasn't just a quick "BAM" the two bi-men over night fall in love with the female. It was a slow process and the journey was an excellent read.

Okay now for the sexy stuff....This book is hot hot hot, sexy hot and does a wonderful job of incorporating a Dom and Sub lifestyle into an extremly healthy relationship. I can't even really explain how much I loved this book. You would have to read this one first as "Two Loves for Alex" is the sequel. Enjoy! I know I sure did.

Love, Claire
