Master Professor (Lessons from the Rack Series #1) by Tara Sue Me

The New York Times bestselling author of the Submissive novels launches a new erotic romance series...

Students are begging to be held after class...


Andie Lincoln is madly in love with Terrence Knight—her childhood friend-turned-Hollywood’s newest golden boy. But he’s a Dominant and wants her trained as a submissive before he’ll consider a relationship with her. He enrolls her at the RACK Academy with strict instructions for her teachers: Do whatever you need to, but don’t take her virginity.
 
Fulton Matthews, the director of incoming students, is enthralled by Andie. Though he questioned her enrollment at first, watching her discover her submissive nature is hotter than his most intense fantasy. Under his control, her sexual awakening brings him to his knees.
 
Yet they can go only so far. Andie belongs to another, and Fulton is bound by a contract that strictly forbids relationships between teachers and students. But when Terrence comes to collect his prize, Fulton discovers it’s not easy to let Andie go. . .

About the Author

Tara Sue Me wrote her first novel at the age of twelve. Twenty years later, after penning several traditional romances, she decided to try her hand at something spicier and started work on The Submissive, and soon followed that with The Dominant, The Training, Seduced by Fire, The Enticement, The Exhibitionist, The Master, and The Exposure. The series has become a huge hit with readers around the world, and has been read and reread millions of times.

Tara kept her identity and her writing life secret, not even telling her husband what she was working on. To this day, only a handful of people know the truth (though she has told her husband). They live together in the southeastern United States with their two children.

Master Professor is book 1 in the Lessons From the Rack series. This is an erotica series that takes place at a BDSM school. I've been wanting to try out a Tara Sue Me book for quite awhile now and I was glad I grabbed this one! I haven't read too many erotica books, mainly because some of the ones I've tried are just pure sex and no story. That was not the case in Master Professor, it was story driven with plenty of naughty bits mixed in. Andie Lincoln is an everyday girl that winds up dating Terrence Knight, a famous actor. She finds out that Terrence is dominant and wants to learn how to be his submissive. He doesn't have enough time to teach her with his filming schedule so he pulls some strings and enrolls her in the RACK Academy. I was kind of iffy going into the story since Andie and Terrence are dating, yet the love interest is someone else. The author played it very well though and had Andie and Terrence agree that they can see other people while she's at the academy. They also promised that her virginity would remain intact, which it did. Fulton Matthews is one of the teachers at the school, and Andie manages to push all of his buttons. With each lesson, feelings start to form that neither wants to accept. Andie is also finding out more about herself than she thought possible. I thought Andie and Fulton suited one another very well but kept wondering how they would make it work while listening. And how Terrence would take the news if/when Andie told him. Master Professor is a perfect book to start if you're new to the erotica or BDSM genre. The characters were engaging and there was a well thought out storyline that I had to appreciate. The naughty bits were scorching hot and balanced throughout the novel. If you're a fan of erotica or just want to try the genre out, I think you'd enjoy this book. The Narrator: This was my first audiobook narrated by Tatiana Sokolov and I thought she did a wonderful job. The characters were easy to distinguish between and their voices were expressive. I will for sure be checking out more of her narrations in the future.

(4- 4.5 stars) I loved Andie’s story and am excited for the rest of the series. One thing that had me losing focus in the beginning was that every time they referred to Andie by her full name, Andie Lincoln I could only think of Andrew Lincoln from The Walking Dead LoL! When I first started listening to MP and the plot laid out I thought it was going to be quite predictable. While it did end the way I thought, the way they got there was not how I expected.

I thought that Master Professor was an interesting concept however the execution wasn't quite what I was hoping for or expecting maybe? It didn't quite win me over when it came to its characters or the interaction between them and the reasons why they acted the way they did. Although I felt Andie was okay as character personalities go but Fulton really particularly put me off. I was also expecting this book to be more... more? More spice, more sex, more intensity, more ... everything? Its a BDSM book teaching Subs to serve their Doms and yet Master Professor just sort of simmered and fell flat without really grasping any true understanding or practice of what BDSM actually is, means and entails. I hate to insult the author by assuming that she hasn't done her research but I just didn't see much true or realistic knowledge in that area that came out in this book at least. Tara Sue Me is a great writer I just felt that this first installment of the Rack series didn't really do justice to its over all idea. Its still too soon yet to make an official judgement on the series as a whole (considering this is the first book) but I hope that later installments fulfill the idea that the author is trying to capture.

I enjoyed this book! Great concept for a new series. Just wish it would have been longer with more detail about the learning.

But when Terrence comes to collect his prize, Fulton discovers it’s not easy to let Andie go. . . My Thoughts I'm a huge fan of the other series that introduced me to our author and of course that means when a new one rolls around, i have to pick it up. Like the intro to this story says, sometimes it's both a blessing and a curse to start something new because you have all new characters to write about and intertwine yet you don't have any of that continuity that sometimes helps a story along. So in this first installment on a completely new journey, we meet Andie who is in a relationship with a guy who has been her best friend for years and is now something more. As part of that more, she learns that he's got a Dom side to him and that's part of his life that she's interested in learning about and exploring to see how she fits. As part of that, she's been granted entry into the best BDSM academy for the summer to learn about being a sub and if it's who she is at the core. It's always interesting to me to see the dynamics of relationships with D/s characters. we know for the most part that Doms Do Not share yet in this case, Terrance, Andie's boyfriend is an actor and is on set filming so he's ok sending her to the academy. For me, i knew that it would scream Danger and of course that's what we get from the moment go. Enter Fulton - the professor that has been designated the instructor for the summer, and who has to write up the plan for Andie upon her arrival. There's animosity there of course and that means that there's going to be some under lying chemistry to deal with. So from the minute they meet, you can see that there's something there - and it's just a matter of time until we see how that something manifests. Throughout this first book, we get to see Andie learn about the basics of being a sub and what the lifestyle includes. There are some rather steamy scenes where she gets pushed beyond her limits but all in all rather PG 13 since she's a virgin and has told the school that it will stay that way upon graduation. What throws me of course is that we often see a lot more playing and kink when we have series that have 'lessons' in them - sub training schools and the like. But in this case, in the style of our author, we get more of the character story and the emotions behind their actions. It's a nice change, since it makes this book less about the BDSM life persay and more about the relationships that these characters are building. The twist of c

I mean, I knew I was in for a ride but, man, this has got me wanting to pick the book right back up and reread it. I’ve heard of this author but have never had the pleasure of reading her work before. So, I had no idea exactly what I was getting myself into. She writes her characters in a way that you can’t help but fall in love with everyone. I even felt bad for Andie’s boyfriend who sent her off to an academy to be trained as his submissive instead of being the one to train her himself. Now before you get your panties in a wad, there is no cheating in this novel. I am a stickler when it comes to cheating in my romances. However, Andie and her boyfriend have decided to take a break while she’s in the academy. That way she won’t feel guilty for the lessons and situations that would be going on while training. Obviously the dude didn’t expect her to fall in love with her instructor but that’s neither here nor there. I loved that we got both Andie’s and Fulton’s POV. You got to watch as both of them struggled with their feelings. For Andie it was the fact that once she started classes, she no longer pictured her boyfriend as her Master but rather she pictured Fulton. She chalks this up to the fact that this is her first experience in this lifestyle and she’s just getting confused. Fulton, on the other hand, is well aware of how inappropriate his feelings are for his student and knows that if anything were to happen between them that he would lose his job. However, with their growing friendship and his attraction to her, he can’t help but toe the line and push the envelope when it comes to their lessons. The conflict within him was so real that I never once rolled my eyes and thought, “C’mon, dude. I mean, really?” Which is something that happens quite a bit when characters dance around their growing attraction. For him, it totally made sense and you could see the connection he had with Andie outside of class and you could help but feel for him. While Andie is definitely inexperienced in all ways, she wasn’t annoying about it. Which was something that I found refreshing. I hate when you have an inexperienced female character who just ends up sounding like pre-teen giggling about s-e-x. Andie approached it all in a very adult way and while she’s definitely shy at first when she enters the academy and learns nudity is a common thing, she gets over the initial shock and carries on. I really enjoyed that she didn’t dwell on things like that. I also felt bad for her when it came time for her to make the decision about what she’d do after graduation, stay and be with Fulton or go back to her boyfriend. The way she was able to break it down and the plan she worked out was perfect and it really brought her up a few notches in my book for the way she handled it all. Master Professor was nothing what I expected and everything I didn’t know I needed. It’s a great book for anyone who’s just starting out with this subject matter but it is also a breath of fresh air for anyone who’s read BDSM books before. It had amazing characters who weren’t acting stupid all the time, an actual story instead of just sex scene after sex scene, and the sexual scenes we get were pretty darn steamy without going overboard. I thought this was a really well-rounded erotic romance and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in the series. I may just have to bide my time by reading all of the other books by Tara Sue Me.

This is one of those stories that's good, I liked it, it was a quick, fun read but it was just missing that special something for me. I enjoyed the first half when there was an element of complication involved since Andie is at the academy being trained for someone else. I liked Andie and Fulton fighting their feelings and enjoyed that bit of conflict. I never fully got their connection even though a I liked them both as characters. They had some fun interactions. The second half was just okay and rather drawn out to me. I felt like this was a low heat kind of book. Which is totally okay, but since they were at a BDSM academy, I was just expecting a higher heat factor. It was still nice but had more of a slow burn feel to me. Good writing and story, decent conflict and drama. It wrapped up nice and easy. I enjoyed it but could easily put it down and walk away. There was definitely a sweet, low heat, love story happening. Nice introduction to a new series. A good read if you're looking for something on the lighter side that’s not to taxing. So, good. :-) Complimentary copy received for honest review.

: MASTER PROFESSOR is the first instalment in Tara Sue Me’s new contemporary, adult LESSONS FROM THE RACK erotic, BDSM romance series. This is Dominant Master Fulton Matthews, and wanna-be submissive Andie Lincoln’s story line. Told from dual third person perspectives (Fulton and Andie) MASTER PROFESSOR follows the building relationship between Andie Lincoln and Fulton Matthews. Andie’s boyfriend is A-list actor Terrence Knight and a Dominant, and Andie has agreed to a three month ‘education’ as a submissive at the exclusive and elite BDSM learning centre known as the RACK Academy owned by Terrence’s friend and fellow Dominant Lennox MacLure. Enter Master Fulton Matthews, Andie’s BDSM professor, and the man with whom Andie will fall in love. Andie is a woman trying desperately to please the man she thought she loved. When Terrence revealed he was a Dominant, Andie considered it a life-changing alternative but never expected to fall in love with the man whose entire life revolves around his Dominant attitude. Fulton Matthews has never collared a submissive but something about Andie Lincoln calls to his heart-a heart that has been frozen for a number of years. The relationship between Andie and Fulton begins as a professional arrangement-a Dominant/submissive educational experience that turns into something more. The BDSM and $ex scenes are erotic and intense, including bondage, spanking, punishments, demonstrations and submission. We are introduced to Andie’s boyfriend, actor Terrence Knight, as well as her roommate at school Maggie; the RACK’s owner Dominant Lennox MacLure, and the RACK’s dance instructor and resident submissive Mariela. Mariela is a woman in love with a man whose lost in a world of guilt and pain. When it was announced that Tara Sue Me was writing a new series I was hoping for something different but there are a number of similarities with her Submissive series that cannot be ignored-an innocent virgin/submissive and a Dominant alpha male who fall in love towards a happily ever after but that’s not to say it makes the story line any less interesting. Even the supporting characters (Lennox and Mariela) are familiar within the story line context. MASTER PROFESSOR is a provocative but familiar story line of one man’s struggle to remain professional, and one woman’s battle between her heart and her head. The premise is consuming; the characters are colorful and passionate; the romance is seductive, erotic and intense. MASTER PROFESSOR is an energetic and provocative look at one woman’s journey into submission.
