MASTER OF THE MOUNTAIN by Cherise Sinclair allows readers to join Rebecca on her life altering adventure. From her troubled relationship with Matt and her feelings about their sex life to her undeniable attraction to Logan Rebecca shows a desire for a little something extra in her sex life yet seems fearful of being rejected. I was charmed by Logan’s dog, Thor, and Rebecca’s reaction to the large animal. The fear she has for dogs is obvious and Thor seems to hone in on her alarm. MASTER OF THE MOUNTAIN has all the traits of a fascinating read yet surprisingly doesn’t evoke the sort of emotional reaction I had expected.
