I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. If you are skittish around rape, murder, or abuse this is not the book for you. This is a DARK erotic romance story. Aiden Oliver is a Master at training women to be courtesan's for others. He picks Rebecca for a specific order he has and he begins to break her down to build her back up as the perfect courtesan.  I won't go into too much detail as I'm sure it'll spoil the book for you. I will say however, the author, has done a great job with these characters. I would think it would be hard to write a book with these type scenes, but I sure do love reading them.  I highly recommend this book for dark story line readers.

I will start off by saying this is not a rainbows and unicorns love story. It is brutal and vicious and I LOVED every single thing about it. I am, in no way, a good man.  I do not want love.  I do not want kindness.  She thought she could change me by giving me the two things I knew I never wanted.  She was wrong. I was hesitant because of this being a new author and I love my dark erotic romance books and have high expectations for them.  But I did it. Took the plunge.  Master Aiden... What an jerk. I absolutely despised him from page 3. I really wanted to hurt him and cause him pain. His training techniques of the Courtesan's are so maddening that I cringed and yelled and all around felt sick for these slaves. This sick man thrives on the challenges that some slaves give him. Rebbeca is his biggest challenge to date and for that I was afraid for her.  I wanted her to completely give in to what he wanted, to obey and be a good little slave. Well of course what fun is that right? Anyway... There are twists and turns that I wasn't expecting to happen. Master Aiden and Rebecca will discover things about each other and themselves that could ultimately cost them both everything. Even now that I have finished this book I still HATE Master Aiden and want to hurt him. But I love his character at the same time. He intrigues me in a way that no other character has as far as his way of thinking and training. I absolutely can't wait to see what this very talented author comes up with next. Sooo Lily White if you read this give me a holler and let me know what your up to next.

This story is very very dark and gets very graphic. Be sure before purchasing you read the disclaimer because she isn’t kidding it is heavy stuff that is not for everyone. What makes a five star read for me is: The book has to be well written and catch my attention. This book covered both of those. This is the first book that I have read that was really DARK. The first thirty percent of it I had issues with but it was like a car accident as much as what you see horrifies you you can’t look away. The writing of the story made it so that even when I thought that I couldn’t do it I couldn’t put it down. And I am so glad that I didn’t because I loved the story and how messed up it was. The book also has to make me feel and really bring up the emotions in me. This one did that and it wasn’t the excitement about a building love or hope that they have a HEA because this book is not about romance or HEA. It was anger, horror, and amazement. It made me want to put the kindle down and not pick it back up at the same time as I wanted to keep reading and get more into this messed up world. At some points it was like I was watching a scary movie I had my hand over my face reading through my fingers. I hated Aiden and the other men and how messed up they were in the head. I wanted to hurt him at times like he was hurting others. Then I was amazed at the transformation and the ability of Rebecca to endure and as messed up as it sounds thrive in the situation. Bravo Lily White for weaving a story the is dark and twisted that messes with the mind. Even when I thought it was too much for me she made me keep going and the story and character development were so amazing that I couldn’t stop and I now I can’t stop thinking about the story and all it’s DARK and gory details. Get it and get your mind twisted today.

I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review; no other compensation was received on my part.  I honestly don't know where to start this review aside from OMFG!!! The amount of mind debauchery (so not the word I really want to use) in this novel will leave you with a hangover for days. It is dark and depraved, an emotional upheaval of words in a single collection that will do things to you I can not even describe…to the point I had to put it down several times to digest what was going on and recover a little from it before I could continue. This is not a BDSM book…this is dark, darker than anything I have read before. If you are not someone who can handle rape, kidnapping, enslavement, mental and physical abuse, and lots and lots and lots of rough sex…stop reading and don't even bother thinking about it any longer. I have read a lot of excellent dark reads and this is right there with the fabulous ones. It will pull your heart, and even some of your soul, directly from you and run it through a meat grinder…seriously.  Rebecca was born to a higher class of society…privileged and protected…until a chance meeting in an art gallery exhibit changes the course of her life. She is now nothing, a sex slave with the pretty title of "courtesan" to be used and abused as her master sees fit. She is strong of mind, rebellious in her own way, though it does not work out so well for her to be so. Ripped away from her life and hidden in a secret society that caters to the wealthiest of the wealthy it no longer matters what she thinks or wants. She will be broken one way or another, both physically and mentally, until she becomes what her master wants her to be.  Aiden is a master, a trainer of sex slaves for the wealthy, the best of the best. He is beautifully sick and perverse man who does not know love or emotion, and he is fine with that. He is a someone who breaks and humiliates women to rebuild them into what he wants…and he always gets what he wants. It is his universe and nothing else, nobody else, matters in the least. He thrives on control and order. He finds pleasure in pain and submission. Though Rebecca is acquired to train for another, he finds something in her that is unique, indispensable, and irreplaceable…if only he can get her to submit fully. She touches something within him he has never experienced before…not love but a curiosity that he will figure out.  It is beyond words what this book did to me. The concept of these secret societies existing among us, undetected for generations, is disturbing at the least. The situations that Rebecca is faced to endure is appalling. I found myself riding the wave of her emotions throughout my experience of reading…and yes it was an experience in of itself. This is by no means a happily ever after, butterflies and rainbows story…don't expect it. You will be disgusted, pissed off, sad, and numb at various points. This is a story that is dark, dirty, and will manipulate and rape your emotions in every way possible. Just when you think there will be some small bit of happiness, Master Aiden will remind you that he has the ultimate control and nothing is what he does not want it to be.

This was an ARC from the author for an honest review. I was very excited to read it because I have never read a DARK erotica before. This book is not for the faint of heart. there is rape, murder and abuse. I am sitting here trying to write this review and I just can't collect my thoughts on it ugh. I have never been speechless on a book. By the time I was in to the 3rd chapter I wanted to put it down I was like I can't read this but at same time I had to read it. It F**ks with your mind big time. I felt a connection to Rebecca. I feel we all have a little bit of Submissive side or a Dom side. I love how Rebecca refused to be broke down to nothing and was strong. I hated Aiden for for things that happened to her. I wanted to kill him. I actually shouted at the book "You dumb F**K she LOVES YOU and I don't know why"" My husband looked at me like I was Crazy . I couldn't believe how Lily drew me into the book and made me feel the emotions Rebecca and/or Adien felt. If I could rate this Higher than a 5* I would. It is a must read. Thank you Lily <3

OMG was my response going into the first few chapters of this book. I just couldn't put this book down. This is a very dark book which contains rape,torture and murder and slavery. It was a lot to take in. A few times I had to stop and take a keep breath but still wanted to continue on. First let me just say that I absolutely hated Master Aiden, he was the epitome of evil. Yet I found myself intrigued by him (sigh). The stuff he put poor Rebecca through was terrifying. This was in no means a fluffy love story hidden by dark elements. This book took so many twists and turns that by the time I got to the end I was left scratching my head and thinking WHAT THE HECK???? This is an amazing book and brilliantly written by Lily White. The only thing I was left to think at the end was I can't wait for the next book in the series, when we meet Master Holland.

I was fortunate enough to receive an a ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Firstly I have to say that this book is dark....extremely dark and not for the faint hearted. If your looking for hearts and flowers then this is NOT the book for you. I on the other hand LOVED it. Master Aiden is a twisted individual who is only interested in himself. From the very beginning I experienced so many different emotions towards him that I was exhausted, I detested him at first and felt afraid for Rebecca as he tries to break her down mould her into the perfect courtesan. His methods left a lot to be desired and and in some parts it was an uncomfortable read. I won't say any more as I don't want to give away any details but the book really played on my mind and I had to finish it. By the end of the book I still didn't like Aiden very much but I loved how Lily brought his character to life. The story flowed really well and kept me wanting to read more. Can't wait to see what Lily comes up with next.

I was asked by my friend Stephanie if I would like to review a dark erotic novel. Knowing I have read this type of genre I said sure why not. I read the blurb, saw the cover, all looked pretty good. Then she told me, it's very dark and do not expect any unicorns or happy endings. Fair enough I considered myself warned. Little did I know what I was getting into. As I started to read Her Master's Courtesan I realized in no way shape or form was this a romance.  Me: Hey guys, I'm reading a new dark erotic book you've got to read! Book buds: Is it good? Me: It's insane! Book buds: Yeah but is it good? What do you mean insane? Is it because it's dark? Me: Yes, INSANE-insane and yes. Book buds: I like dark. How dark? Me: Very dark. Book buds: Define dark Me: Think Black Hole in space dark Book buds: DAMN! Me: Yeah O.o Rebecca - Sweet, shy and unfortunately, she has caught Aiden's eye. She will do what she can to survive. She never gives up hope even when she is at her lowest point. She is not a victim suffering from Stockholm Syndrome. She is a victim of a Aiden. This here ladies is one whacked dude! Aiden will get under your skin, into your mind rip them a both apart and rebuild you into whatever he wants you to be. He is one scary dude all wrapped up in beautiful package. This story is told from dual POVs. You get to experience both their thoughts and feelings. I had moments that I didn't want to know what was going on in Rebecca's head. Being in Aiden's head was bad enough. His thought process is so pathologically brilliant yes so disturbing. This is one sadistic character that will stay with me for a long time. I can't go into too much more detail of the book without doing any spoilers. This is definitely a book you need to experience on your on so that you can come away with your own opinions. However, what I will say is Her Master's Courtesan is a viciously violent, psycho erotic thriller that will linger in your mind for a long time.  Not only am I giving a 5-Star rating to Her Master's Courtesan but I am also giving it a 5-Flame rating as well. Is that a good thing you ask. Depends. Here's the scoop of what to expect: vaginal, anal, oral, toy play, bondage, multiple partners. Of course all that sounds good right? Now here is the harsh reality, none of it is consensual. There is no BDSM here, no safe word, no stopping the horror of what goes on. It's brutal, torturous and violent...and this is just the tip of the iceberg. If any of this bothers you, put the book down and walk away now.  The further I got into this book I realized, I began to grow numb to the horrors Rebecca was experiencing. That I was changing, my thought process was evolving. I stopped hoping for a happy ending because I knew none was coming. Instead I accepted this wild, tortuous ride the author had taken me on. And then it hit me - author Lily White is Aiden. And me... I'm Rebecca I received this book from Stephanie's Book Reports in exchange for my honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated. Stars – 5 Flames - 5

First, I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. Now, on to the review: Holy freaking crap! I'm not even sure where to start. I don't do spoilers and it's going to be hard to do this without them, but I'll give it a shot. This was, by far, the darkest book I've ever read. Darker than I expected. I have never read a book that made me hate, and I do mean HATE, one of the main characters. I seriously wanted to do him harm. I was like a tiny little cheerleader in the background, urging Rebecca to rain mayhem and a world of hurt down on Aiden's head. The fact that she didn't goes a long way to telling this story, although I didn't know it at the time. To say that Aiden is the master of the mind-f*** is putting it lightly. Somehow Lily White has managed to completely include the reader in the whole story and go through all of the emotions and ups and downs as Rebecca experiences them. I swear, at one point, I actually jumped at the snap of the lash! It's totally mind blowing. You definitely have to go into this book with an open mind, and be ready to go on a hell of a ride. You won't be sorry, and you might just learn a little bit more than you intended!! Donna Cheatle/Brazen Bibliophile

**I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review** Read the author's warning, it is there for a reason and oh, so necessary. It pulls no punches, if you can't handle that, then don't pick up this book. But if you can...or you like dark reads...this book is for you!! I was a little shocked at how much I actually enjoyed this book. The author has done such a great job of making you feel and understand the emotions both from Master Aiden and Rebecca. You felt scared, you felt angry, you felt indignant & pissed off. Then you felt affection, pleasure, and somewhat stockholmy. You almost hate yourself while your reading this because your turned-on by something wicked. I'm an avid read of all dark romance/erotica books and I must say, author Lily White has set a new standard!! I'll most definitely be buying all the books in this series!!

***WARNING*** This is a DARK read. Some scenes contain graphic depictions of violence. Please read the warning included before the prologue that the author provides. If you are sensitive to rape and abuse, do not  read. However, if this is your genre, this is a MUST read!!! Enjoy! Where to start??? The mind games…Wow! Lily has my mind warped and my emotions battling each other. I constantly questioned myself and my morals while reading. This is the darkest book that I have ever read. And I have read some dark books before. Her Master’s Courtesan follows Aiden, a Master, and his techniques in turning women into a proper and presentable  Courtesan. I am not going to lie, this book is not glitter, unicorns, and rainbows. It's dark, the darkest type of dark. And I ENJOYED every word! Aiden captures Rebecca and begins the process of bending, breaking her of her identity and own will. Only then, when she is no longer the owner of her thoughts, will he sell her to another master. His methods and techniques that he uses, to control her and all his other courtesans, to make them submit, are cruel, degrading, and inhumane. Aiden requires a high level of submission from Rebecca. Of course, when Rebecca disobeys him, she is punished. When the mind is too strong and unwilling, Aiden is forced to use other methods before he can deliver her to her new master. I silently cried, begged, and pleaded alongside Rebecca for  Aiden not to release her to her new owner. To keep her as his Courtesan. The twist and turns that Lily has entwined made it hard for me to focus on anything else besides, reading. The way that the characters are introduced, familiar faces brought in from the past and secrets are revealed. Brilliant!! I had to know if Rebecca would ever fully submit? What would happen to her when she was with her new owner? Would Aiden remain the same type of Master that he was before Rebecca? At the end of the story, I became comfortable, even accepting of Aiden’s teaching methods. And the reasons for certain actions. I believe that early on in the book I had fallen for Master Aiden!!! (Sigh) Does that make me twisted? If so, I am ok with that. Does it mean that I was manipulated into believing what Aiden wanted me to believe? Maybe, but I don’t care. I LOVED this freaking book. It deserves more than 5 stars. Lily I wish I could give you, like 10!!! I cannot wait to meet Master Holland in her next book, Her Master’s Teacher!

*ARC received by author in exchange for an honest review* I highly recommend reading the warning to this book. If you don't like to read books with rape, torture, murder and violence then this is NOT the book for you.  Right from the beginning I was sucked into Master Aiden's life and words. I got chills while reading, expecting a dark, twisted and unforgettable story - well that's exactly what I got. Lily knows how to give you a dark read that will make you think about everything. Quite a few times I was so angry with what was happening in HMC, that my kindle got gripped with frustration.  Master Aiden captures women, trains them to be courtesans and sells them to others. Searching for the next pet to train, his eyes land on Rebecca. A beautiful women and he know's it has to be her. She's a hard one to break, her strength and willpower to keep fighting is amazing!  I can't go into great details about the story line as it would give too much away, what I will say is Her Master's Courtesan is brilliantly written and makes you feel things that you wouldn't think possible. So many surprising bits to this book. I thought I knew what was going to happen but oh was I so wrong. I can't wait for more from Lilly White.

This book is Dark.  The book is written so clear that you can picture everything happening as you read it.  It will mess with your mind and take you on an emotional roller coaster while it throws twist and turns at you. I was captivated at the beginning and could not set the book down.  Just remember this book is not full of sunshine and rainbows.  It is a dark thunderstorm that will leave you breathless.  I am looking forward to more from this author.  Can not wait to see what her mind comes up with next.

HER MASTERS COURTESAN (spoiler FREE) (received an ARC for an honest review) THIS IS NOT BDSM, THIS IS NOT FOR EVERYONE DO NOT PURCHASE A DARK NOVEL & BE ANGRY OF ITS CONTENT “There are no safe words”  5 star  COURTESAN: /’kortezen/ n~ a prostitute, esp. one with wealthy or upper-class clients. Also see “slave” This is a DARK novel. I hope that before you continue, you realize, this is not your hearts and flowers romantic book your mom used to read. Her Masters Courtesan contains explicit scenes that many will find disturbing. But like a moth to a flame, you know it’s hot, you’ll get burned, but still your drawn to the heat… the danger of it summons you.   From the prologue you are warned, Aiden is not a troubled alpha looking to be saved. He knows what he wants, and there is nothing that will get in his way.  He is a Master. Control is the only thing he’ll ever need   Master Aiden gives us a front row seat into his depraved mind. From the beginning of his lessons, he shows that he is the Master of his universe. You will fear him, as Rebecca does, and yet…. There is something about him. Rebecca, his newly acquired courtesan is put through so much to break her spirit. I found myself on a rollercoaster of emotions along with Rebecca. There were times that I hated him, and times that I found myself turned on by him. The intensity of his pleasure in inflicting pain, and his callousness at punishing her makes your skin crawl. But he is also a Master at pleasuring her (only if it pleases him of course.)  Rebecca is tortured in so many ways to break her. She must be broken so that he may build her into what he wants her to be. “Lessons” I know I would have failed. Rebecca is strong, stronger than even she knows. While Aiden is unleashing her sexual side, he also unleashes a side of Rebecca she did not know existed. This story will break your heart. Author Lily White draws out a multitude of emotions. Fear, pain, anger, and arousal.   The bar on dark novels has been raised. Her Masters Courtesan is dark, erotic, thrilling and captivating from the very first page. “There are no safe words” no way out.  This is not a BDSM book. You will get an HEA…..But understand it’s not your typical HEA. It’s what pleases The Master.

***I was given an ARC for a honest review *** So I've just started really getting into the world of dark, erotic books and let me tell you, Her Master's Courtesan has been different for me than others. When I say different though, it's in a good way. Until the end I had no clue where this would lead. I always expect the leads to automatically fall in love right away no matter the circumstances but not here! This book is not for the faint of heart with the violence and rape along with other things going on. There was a few times I wondered if I could go on because I hurt right along with the female lead and what she was going through but I just had to turn the page to see what was going to happen next. Definitely some good steamy scenes too :) So I was glad that I kept reading. Rebecca is living what she considered a normal life when Master Aiden walks into her life. She thinks she's hit the jackpot with this good looking man and let's her guard down to only realize too late that he will forever change her world. Not going to give any spoilers though because I feel that can ruin the anticipation for others reading this I would recommend this book to anyone that wants a dark read and look forward to more books by this author. She had me going through so many emotions it was like whiplash. I promise you'll hate Master Aiden but then you'll see him through different eyes and realize he is the right Master for the job.

Hold on to something folks because HMC will take you on a wild ride of emotions! It will keep you up reading into the wee hours of the night because you just can't put it down... even though you want to so badly. You want to hate him... but you can't. You're compelled to finish the book because its just so good. I highly recommend it for anyone who loves dark books... and wants to release their inner bad girl. I know some parts made me squirm both good and bad... so read the warnings before you buy this book. It has things that I've never read about before and they are darker then dark. Understand me... this is a DARK story. With that said... I adore the book.... the plot line will throw so many twists at you and just when you think there isn't going to be a happy ending... well she kinda gets a happy ending. It depends on your definition of happy. It all depends on Him and what He wants. All I know is that I want you to read this book because its just an incredible journey

I just finished.... OMG!!! This book is dark, erotic, and all consuming! She wasn't kidding when she wrote the warning. It is well written, and it literally grabs you at every turn. Dark is tame for the description, but it is 1 book that I will be recommending to everyone. I literally did not want to put it down! I can't wait for the next installment!!!

** I received a free ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review ** *** 5 Ridiculously Amazing Awesome DARK DARK PITCH BLACK Mind Blowing Stars *** I'm totally floored! I'm not necessarily a fan of the subject matter but I AM a fan of this book and I most definitely AM a fan of this author. It takes considerable skill to take things like abduction, abuse, violence, rape, and unwilling domination (to name a few) and turn them into a book that people are not only interested in reading but that people enjoy reading and that's exactly what Lily White did with Her Master's Courtesan. As stated in the book's warning, (seriously, this book has a warning!), there is no fluff, no love, and no HEA. If there is even a remote chance that you will be looking for any of those things you're looking at the wrong book. I'll be the first to admit that erotica is not my typical genre of choice. Actually, if I'm being honest, I normally avoid it like the plague but even I was glued to the pages. This book was a bit hard to read at times but I loved every single sick and twisted minute of it. LOVED IT! Virtual high 5 to this exceptional author who made me appreciate my boring life so much more with just one book!

This book takes you on a very dark twisted tale.  Don't for one minute think you are going to see some wonderful love story unfold.  If you want hearts and roses don't read this expecting to find it.  It is a good book if you like it dark.  Aiden is a Bastard, his methods are very cruel and he shows you why he is truly a Master.

Ok, i will admit i got this book because of a question asked on a blog. So after reading the reviews i couldnt resist. I read it in one day. That is how engaging it is. Very well written. However, it was very difficult to read due to the subject matter. I love my HEA. There was none. I so wanted Aiden to love her and he never did or will. This upset me more than anything. All i can say is read this at your own risk.

Well if this wasn't a twisted and sordid story! I can't say I liked it a whole lot but I didn't hate it either. I enjoyed the beginning of this wicked story, but the second half was waaay too much for me with all the nonchalant murdering--eeeewwww--gives me the creeps. Three stars cuz of such good writing that I kept reading it. However, I am deleting it.
