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 is the third book in the Iron Eagle Gym series and could easily be read as a standalone.
The one thing you are absolutely guaranteed when you read a Sean Michael book is that there will be LOTS of very creative sex. The Luckiest Master actually started off quite slowly in this respect as Damian and Sawyer got to know each other and I really enjoyed getting to know both these men before the sex fest began and things got a lot steamier.
Damian, or Day as he is more widely referred to, is a Dom who has recently taken over running the front desk manager job at the gym. It’s a huge task and it’s immediately apparent that he will need an assistant but finding the right candidate proves to be more difficult than he thought. When he meets Sawyer it seems like all his prayers have been answered, the man is perfect for the role, so he can’t understand Sawyer’s reluctance when he offers him the job.
Sawyer lost his master to an accident a few years ago. That was just the start of Sawyer’s bad luck – it seems that everything he touches or gets involved in fails in some way so he keeps himself to himself. He believes very strongly that he is a bad luck charm but these thoughts have made him lonely and prevented him from finding love again.
Day slowly drags Sawyer out of his own head, albeit sometimes kicking and screaming, and offers him way more than a new job. They fit well together but the constant battle to make Sawyer engage and leave behind his ‘zen’ is not easy. There is a lot of sex in this book, a great fisting scene and a sub who is learning all sorts of things about himself. There is definitely more to life than service and Day is determined to prove it to Sawyer and make sure he knows its forever.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
