Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: Her Master's Courtesan by Lily White

Add to Goodreads:
I am a Master.

You must know this fact to understand my story.

I capture women.

I break them down.

And I rebuild them.

If they are lucky, they are sold into the professional hands of another Master. If they are less fortunate, they are buried beneath the ground, never to be thought of again.

I lust for the control, I demand absolute submission and my body yearns to warp the minds of those I train.

Power is the only thing I’ll ever need and I am addicted to the feeling of ultimate control.

I am wealthy, good-looking, educated and charming.

And 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.
This book's warning should NOT be taken lightly. I have read quite a few "dark" books and this is by far the darkest of them all. There are no redeeming qualities to be found within Aiden. There is no sad, childhood story that will help to make you understand the "why" of what he does. There is no explanation He enjoys it, plain and simple. He gets off from the pain and fear of the courtesans he trains. This is no love story with a "pot of gold at the end of the rainbow" type ending. If that is what is what you are looking for, stop now!

I hated Aiden from the beginning and my feelings for him did not change throughout. He has no redeeming qualities, AT ALL! He is the type of monster that nightmares are made of. As I said, this was not my first dark read but it was still difficult for me to get through. It felt so real at times. The horrible things that Aiden does to Rebecca is revolting. But the way in which the author tells the story is what kept me coming back. It is ultimately what made it a five star read for me.
Lily White is a very talented writer and an amazing storyteller. As I said, this book is not for everyone but for those who are brave enough to venture into the darker reads are in for one hell of a ride!
BANNED on Amazon - so no link
Lily White is a dark writer who likes to dabble on the taboo side of eroticism.  Most of the time she can be found wandering around aimlessly while her mind is stuck in some twisted power play between two characters in her head. You may recognize her in public by the confused expression, random mumbling, and occasional giggle while thinking up a scene. Lily’s favorite things in life are reading, thinking about reading, buying books for reading….and writing. Her other secret pleasure is meeting with her plot editor in public to discuss her books and watching the shocked expressions of the people around her that don’t realize she’s talking about a book.  When Lily is not reading, writing, wandering or freaking out innocent bystanders, she’s sleeping.
