The Luckiest Master by Sean Michael

When Master Damien Richardson (Day to his friends) takes over the front desk manager job at the Iron Eagle Gym, he knows he’s going to need an assistant. But finding the right person for the job is harder than he thought it would be. When he meets Saw, he thinks he’s found the solution to all his problems, and maybe something more.

Sawyer Whitehead lost his master to a tragic car accident some years ago, and since then one opportunity after another has gone sour on him. Thoroughly convinced he’s cursed and a jinx to everything and everyone he touches, he refuses to officially become Day’s assistant because he knows that as soon as he does, something terrible will happen. He’s even more determined not to get involved with Day, despite his attraction, because it would kill him to be responsible for tragedy befalling the lovely man.

Day must convince Saw that he’s not cursed and that together, they can face any challenge that comes their way—in both their professional and personal partnerships.

This book and series is right up my alley. Lots and lots of sex! The chemistry between Day and Saw is off the charts, and the love and respect they have for each other is amazing. Saw doesn’t like to commit to anything because he feels he is bad luck. Day has always wanted a boy to love and care for. These two tiptoe around and flirt like crazy for months before they actually make things official, and once they do it is off the charts hot. There is a little drama but nothing too much. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book, the preview has me excited!

Characters: Well written and easy to relate to
Sex: Oh yeah!
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: M/M Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

This is the third in the series – but the first that I have read. I found it okay to read as a standalone, although I am sure that there were some continuity issues which I did not notice.

I liked the story, and the way that it delved into the issues that Sawyer had with believing he caused bad luck – I thought Day dealt with them effectively and imaginatively. There was a good length of time where these two skirted around these things and also about how attracted to each other they were, but once they opened Pandora's box...well it never closed again! It was definitely sexy, although even more exploration into possible kinks would have been fun. The only thing that did annoy me a bit was the repetition of the term Master – a bit like some books overdo babe, or baby, here Master appeared 10 plus times on a page repeatedly, and in a way lost value.

A prolific author, Sean Michael takes notes dictated by the men who live in his head and shares their stories.

Often referred to as "Space Cowboy" and "Gangsta of Love" while still striving for the moniker of "Maurice," Sean Michael spends his days surfing, smutting, organising his immense gourd collection and fantasizing about one day retiring on a small secluded island peopled entirely by horseshoe crabs. While collecting vast amounts of vintage gay pulp novels and mood rings, Sean whiles away the hours between dropping the f-bomb and pursuing the kama sutra by channelling the long lost spirit of John Wayne and singing along with the soundtrack to "Chicago".

A long-time writer of complicated haiku, currently Sean is attempting to learn the advanced arts of plate spinning and soap carving sex toys.

Barring any of that? He'll stick with writing his stories, thanks, and rubbing pretty bodies together to see if they spark.
