Master (An Impossible Novel) (Impossible #6)

Book 6 in the USA Today Bestselling Impossible Series–Can be read as a standalone.

I’m hunting down the most heinous criminal I’ve ever encountered. The man known to us only as The Mentor abducts and tortures women. And now he’s set his sights on me.

My sexy new partner Reed Miller is determined to protect me, and he insists on staying close. Too close. His allure frightens me almost as much as the sadistic man who is stalking me. I have to trust him if we’re going to

    This review is from: Master (An Impossible Novel) (Impossible #6) (Kindle Edition)
    The last couple of books I read from Julia were heavy heavy emotional material (that I loved). I knew this one was going to be a little lighter on the emotions going in, which was ok. I have loved ever last book by Julia Syke’s. She is one of those authors whose books I buy the second they are released (if she hasn’t already sent it to me to read, which BTW, thank you for Master!!!). Whether the book is emotionally draining or leans more to the mystery/suspense angle, I end up loving it. If you haven’t read her books you should and I recommend started with The Impossible Trilogy then moving on down the series.

    In Master, Katie and Reed are after the Mentor, the one who abducts and tortures women, the one who mentored Carl from Mentor. Katie starts out with Dex as her partner but because Reed has experience with this case, he is brought in from New York to team up with her.

    Katie reminded me a lot of Sharon (from Rogue) in her attitude to towards BDSM, curious, but sickened by her own curiosity because she equated what The Mentor did to women with the BDSM lifestyle. With Sharon, that drove me a little crazy in the beginning, but having read her story, I understood where Katie was coming from.

    As we got into the mystery of who is The Mentor, my mind was going all over the place. I bet its him, no, I think its him, no way could it be him!!! I got to say, I never suspected who he actually was until a few pages before it was revealed.

    I only flinched a couple of times during the hot scenes between Reed and Katie (in pure Julia Syke’s style, they were incredibly hot and made me a tad uncomfortable in my own skin, why do I love that?). I have to say when the word that is the title of the book was said, that was one of the moments when I flinched. I understood why it was pushed, but man, that would have been so hard to be standing there in that character’s shoes as they tried to recover mentally from something that had happened.

    As always, Julia’s writing had me completely engrossed, I pushed everything on my calendar aside to read this when she sent it to me, I was flipping through the pages wanting to know who done it, wanting to see how our heroine would grow in this book, wanting to get to know these characters who I had been introduced to in previous books in the series. She brought back some of my favorite characters (like Smith and Lydia) and introduced us to new characters. This was a one sitting book for me. I read and read until I swiped over to the last page.

    Master was just as amazing as the rest of the series, with characters I love, suspense, drama, and an understanding of the BDSM way of life that I have gotten from another.

    Julia, you are amazing!

    I cannot wait to read what comes next from you! <3

    Master (Impossible #6) by Julia Sykes

    4.5 Stars

    Hunting for the Mentor, FBI agent Katie Byrd finds herself being the hunted when she receives a threatening letter on her desk. Along side Dex, Reed is assigned as her new partner and protector and much to Dex’s distain the pair become rather close. Following what appear to be solid leads, the team end up on a wild goose chase and Katie’s life is put at risk when the mentor seems to have inside information and can get to her where ever she goes.

    Unlike the women in previous books in this series, Katie does not suffer the physical abuse we have seen before. Her terror is more emotional as she is stalked and video’s of her in her bedroom are sent to her works computer. This made for an easier to stomach read than the violent abuse we witnessed earlier in the series.

    When the Mentors identity was finally revealed I was surprised, but had from around 50% of the book narrowed the suspects down to two, so wasn’t gob-smacked with the revelation.

    I finished this book in one sitting and I’m not sure if, now the Mentor has been caught, this was the end of the series, but whether it’s this series or something completely new, I can’t wait to read more from Julia.

    I have enjoyed this entire series. Some of the books are extremely dark. This one has dark undertones, but it is not bad.

    The books in this series can be read as stand alones. This one is no exception. You can pick this book up and read it having not read any of the other books and not be lost at all. BUT I WOULDN’T RECOMMEND THAT. All of these books are wonderful. And while each book can be read on its own, you will miss a WONDERFULLY powerful story that builds from the beginning. You will miss some of the subtleties between the characters that are a result of things that they have experienced in the prior books.

    This book is about a relationship with two FBI agents. They are partnered to solve a crime that has crossed jurisdictions. Reed comes in to Chicago to assist on the investigation. He is charismatic and has a great wit to him. But you can’t miss that he is definitely a DOM. Katie is the FBI agent that he is paired with. They met when she came to help in NY on the case that started there and has now moved to Chicago. While she is very good at her job, she is not happy in it but doesn’t feel like disappointing everyone around her by speaking her mind. She is instantly attracted to Reed, but her feelings for him scare her a little because she knows the lifestyle that he leads. She sees abuse of women in her job everyday and she has a hard time reconciling the abuse that she sees and the D/s relationship dynamic. Reed is just the man to pull her through it.

    All of that is going on between them while they are trying to solve this case. Oh, and Katie has a stalker. So the dom part of Reed’s personality, not to mention the fact that he is her partner, really brings out his protective side.

    Love is there. Pleasure through pain is there. Suspense and an ending that most won’t see coming. Great suspense, awesome sex.

    What I love most about this entire series is that it is not just sex, BDSM. These books are hugely suspenseful. Sykes does a masterful job of weaving the romance around the suspense. And, while there is some strong language, it is not over the top and gratuitous. She doesn’t use f*** just for the sake of saying f***.

    This one was one I read in one setting. The price point is right. And the story is great. I highly recommend.
