Book Description: Erotic, BDSM
Marc d'Alessio might own a BDSM club with his fellow military veterans, Adam and Damián, but he keeps all women at a distance. However, when Marc rescues beautiful Angelina Giardano from a disastrous first BDSM experience at the club, an uncharacteristic attraction leaves him torn between his safe, but lonely world, and a possible future with his angel.
Angelina leaves BDSM behind, only to have her dreams plagued by the Italian angel who rescued her at the club. When she meets Marc at a bar in her hometown, she can't shake the feeling she knows him, but has no idea why he reminds her of her angel.
When Marc's search-and-rescue partner, widower Luke Denton, confides he believes Angelina is the angel his wife promised to send him, Marc is convinced she is meant for Luke. A painful incident from his past keeps Marc from letting any woman drive a wedge between him and a friend.
While Luke can provide Angelina with love and stability, Marc knows his friend can't satisfy her submissive needs. Marc offers one night to show her that BDSM is not about pain, but a power exchange with mutual trust and consent. But he knows he can't commit emotionally to anything more.
When the abusive Dom from Angelina's past threatens, Marc's protective instincts kick in; he must keep her safe. Again at the Masters at Arms Club, she turns the tables on him and turns his safe, controlled world upside down. (Book Two in the RESCUE ME series; follows introduction to series, MASTERS AT ARMS.)

At time of this review MAA can be downloaded for free at Smashwords using coupon code QV99H.
AHH Kallypso the stories you tell!!! Nobody's Angel is NOT your normal BDSM/Erotic Romance, a lot of BDSM play goes on before Master Marc and Angelina have actual intercourse, but it is paced just right with the story and with the issues both of them have and what they need from each other.
Master Marc is a stubborn, sexy Italian Dom???? Why the ??? because Master Marc is not the perfect Dom, he has insecurities, he knows he wants Angelina but does not feel he is the Dom she needs, so he tries to push her toward his friend Luke. Luke realizes Angelina is the first woman he's wanted since the death of his wife, but he has a secret that might just keep them apart. Angelina, has been a good Italian, Catholic girl. She has an interest in BDSM because of the erotic romances she reads, so she agrees to go with her boyfriend to a BDSM club. Her boyfriend turns out to be an abusive dickwad and Angelina swears off BDSM for life. When she meets up with Marc and Luke she is instantly attracted to both...but this good Italian Mama's girl doesn't do threesomes....or does she?
I really could empathize with Angelina, she is a strong confident woman, who would love for a man to just take care of her in the bedroom but let her be independent in the rest of her life. She has body image problems and major trust issues. Reading her fears of submitting to a Dom and all the inner struggles she went through was insightful. Master Marc worked my nerves with his withholding information from Angelina, especially when he demands honesty from her. Luke was freakin' adorable, I can't wait to see the path Kallypso takes him on. Master Damian makes a small appearance in NA but from his appearance I can tell the boy has some serious things going on in his life and his story is going to be extremely emotional and dark. AAAHHHHH Master Adam and Karla...what a battle they are about to enter. I LOVE the last couple of paragraphs of the book. How EVIL of Kallypso to tease us like that. (CRAP did I really say Master Marc worked my nerves...why do I have a feeling I just earned a visit from Master Adam or Master Damian or both)
Nobody's Angel is a great read. Angelina and her brattiness is the perfect foil for Master Marc and even though he worked my nerves with his omissions, I was glad to see how they worked things out. I LOVE how KM brings up the fact that many erotic romance fans romanticize BDSM. But points out that while the Power Exchange can be a beautiful thing when done right, there are way to many people out there playing around, acting like they know BDSM and so many abusing the power of a Dom and trust of a Sub.
I CANNOT WAIT FOR MASTER ADAM and KARLA's book in December.
D' gives Nobody's Angel:
I pride myself on honest reviews and while I LOVED Nobody's Angel and am confident in the rating I am giving it. I feel the need to state the following:
There were some editing errors in the first release, Kallypso herself reported on her facebook that she found them as she was reading NA on her Kindle. She was upset with herself for the errors, apologized and said she was fixing them and re uploading to all three sites that are selling Nobody's Angel.
You may be asking why did I feel the need to go into all of that...well because of the rating I am giving NA, I am pretty sure some snarky reviewer out there may ding the rating they give because of the errors, but honestly the errors weren't horrible, especially for a new author and she is FIXING them, told her fans about them before any of her fans even complained. So I CHOOSE NOT to ding my rating for Nobody's Angel because of a few errors.
UPDATE - 10/16/11 - Edits have been done and uploaded =)
TROUBLE LEAVING A COMMENT?
It has been reported that some followers cannot leave a comment. Here is what we have found out in the past: Are you on internet explorer? people on IE have that problem, some click several times and it finally works or they leave as anonymous, but put their name in the post. We can't figure out why IE users have problems, google chrome or firefox users don't have any trouble
