In the third enticing installment of Jeffe Kennedy’s enthralling “Master of the Opera,” a woman finds herself torn between two powerful lovers-and one reckless passion that leaves her aching for more…After a harrowing night trapped in the tunnels beneath the Sante Fe Opera House, intern Christy Davis finds comfort in the arms of Roman Sanclaro, the opera’s wealthy and gorgeous benefactor. But even as Roman tries to impress her with his lavish lifestyle-and seduce her with his charms-Christy cannot stop obsessing over her other, clandestine lover. Hidden in the labrynths below, a mysterious masked man has become the master of her desires: a sensual but commanding partner who pushes Christy to the very brink of erotic pleasure…and beyond. No other man can compare. But somewhere, watching from the shadows, a fiercely jealous rival threatens to destroy the erotic secret they share.
Haunted by doubts, deception, and danger, Christy must choose between the warnings in her mind, the feelings in her heart…and the wild, forbidden yearnings that set her body on fire.
Worldbuilding: The awesome Sante Fe Opera House returns with its mystery and charm.
Characters: We get to see more of Christy and the Master (at last! xD), and I’m very excited about the next installment of the story particularly because I’m sure we’ll get more and more of then from now on 😀 I liked their chemistry, it’s off the charts, and of course I love the mystery of the Master character.
We also got to know Roman a bit more, and I can safely say he made it off my favs list for this serial because…well, you’ll understand when you’ll read this (or when you read it, if you did already).
Plot: The plot thickens as another murder takes place. I’m totally hooked on this story, and can’t wait to find out what’s what and who’s who. A lot of intrigue going on so far.
Writing: The usual awesomesauce third person narrative from Christy’s POV, and of course this installment also ends with a terribly teasing cliffy. Gah! I long to know who’s the killer 😀 My mystery geek side is getting a total kick out of this serial, lemme tell you.
Curb Appeal: Awesome cover, hooking blurb, instant buy author name – total compulsive buy material.
All in all, this yet another fab part of the Master of the Opera story and I can’t wait for the next one! *puts on ninja ARC stalker superpower ring*
