Cooper McKenzie holds her earned position on my "really, really good romance writers" list with this story, and does so without any disappointment on my part. I am always complaining that her stories are waaaaaay too short, but she crams lots into them. I really liked this one--good characters, edgy action, some BDSM, and a story that flows well from page to page. What more can we want?

5 DELIGHTFUL DIVAS: "Cooper McKenzie has brought new life back to her Club Esoteria series. I am in no way saying I haven’t enjoyed each and every story along the way, and I highly recommend the series as a whole. But as series tend to do, the spark and pizzazz wanes as you move along, and it takes real talent to pump up the storyline so that it’s again gripping and engaging for the reader. Ms. McKenzie has done that in Jillian’s Master. His Sub’s Submissive (Book 1) and Caught by the Master (Book 2) were my absolute favorites thus far, but Jillian’s Master (Book 5) gives them a run for their money. Jillian’s Master is an intriguing tale to say the least, both passionate and heartfelt. You are submerged into the story right at the beginning and the passion of Master Gunner and Jillian takes you through to the very last page. There aren’t any dull moments in this book. And, as far as I’m concerned, Master Gunner gives Master Taurus a run for the title of best Master in this series—although, I think Master Taurus might still win out…it’s darn close though. Absolutely fantastic addition to the Club Esoteria series. I immensely enjoyed reading about Master Gunner and Jillian, and I can’t wait to see what is in store for us next in this series. Way to go, Ms. McKenzie!" -- Jae, Dark Divas Reviews

5 STARS: "Jillian was a dutiful daughter and employee. She ran the family company without due compensation or acknowledgment. Her bossy father informs her that she is to escort the potential buyer around town for the weekend. Who is this mysterious buyer? It is the same mysterious master she ran out on at Club Esteria, a sex club in New Bern, North Carolina. Is she in for a spanking or what? He enlightens her sexually, intellectually, and emotionally. The sex....wow! The man is a tantalizing master! There is anal sex, oral sex, spanking, and sex toys. Cooper McKenzie is one of my favorite erotica authors. Once again, she has a winner!" -- Stephanie Rollins, Book Reviews R Us

4 RAVENS: "Jillian’s Master, book 5 in the Club Esoteria series, might be on the short side, but what it lacks there it makes up for in a amazing character line with explosive passions. Holy cats I could feel Master Gunner’s power flow right off the pages. {have fan ready} Jillian, a true sub at heart, is just learning what it’s like being mastered. I enjoyed seeing her discover herself along the way. Master Gunner never thought one little sub could turn his world up-side down. His tenderness with Jillian, as well as Jillian’s need to test Gunner, made me melt. I love that this is a series, so at times, we see some reoccurring characters. However, all the books can be to me stand alone. The plot of Jillian’s Master is wonderful. I must confess that I would enjoy a chance to checkout Club Esoteria. If you are wondering what I am blathering on about check out this series, just be prepared to pant a little…YUM!" -- Lace, BlackRaven's Reviews

4 HEARTS: "As always a trip to club Esoteria is an exciting one full of adventure. I enjoyed seeing the club as well as the lifestyle through Jillian’s eyes. She may be a strong businesswoman but in the bedroom she is a submissive at heart. She is frightened of her intense feelings yet when confronted she pulls herself together and aims for that brass ring. Gunner is not only a great Dom but he is also a great man. He understands Jillian’s fears and gives her the help and love she needs. The two are a wonderful couple. The love that they share is a passionate one right from the start. I loved the fire that flares between Jillian and Gunner. As Gunner shows Jillian what it means to be his submissive Jillian not only finds herself but love as well. Jillian is not only trying to save her company but her father as well and Gunner is more than willing to help her with that as well. The more time Gunner spends with Jillian the deeper he finds himself falling. Watching Gunner and Jillian’s relationship blossom was a wonderful read. JILLIAN'S MASTER is a sweet but intense story in this series. Full of emotions and well-rounded characters this is a book not to be missed. I have enjoyed each book in this series and hope that the author continues to bring us back to club Esoteria for frequent visits." -- Gabrielle, Love Romances and More

4 CUPS: "There is something so hot about a man who knows how to control a strong woman with one touch, one kiss, and one look. Ms. Cooper has a way of writing that allows the reader to step inside the BDSM world without leaving the comfort of home. Jillian’s Master is a great story that fulfils every dominant fantasy I have had but still leaves me craving more. The plot is told beautifully as Jillian’s eyes are opened to a world she has only fantasized about and Gunner finds the sub he has been searching a long time for. I always enjoy a good BDSM tale and this one definitely has me wanting to tie myself up and enjoy the possibilities." --Danielle, Coffee Time Romance

4 STARS: "BDSM fans, if you haven't visited Club Esoteria yet, it is time. JILLIAN'S MASTER, book five in the series, is a short, sweet ride as a Dom and sub find each other in the most common of ways by accident! It's Jillian's thirtieth birthday and her best friend Blaze isn't going to go along with the idea of a bottle of wine and a good book to celebrate. Blaze is determined to get her friend laid, so it's off to the private club, Esoteria, in search of a good Dom to make this "old" girl feel alive. Jillian is a novice when it comes to the submissive lifestyle, but she is curious and decides to play along. Master G is on the hunt for a submissive. In his forties, he is ready to settle down, but he can't find what he is looking for. And then in walks Jillian. Tall, curvaceous and totally stunning, she captivates him. The two share some passion and then Jillian flees while Gunner sleeps. What was she thinking? Monday morning she has put her temporary loss of sanity behind her and she steps into her father's business ready to convince Gunner McNeill that he should invest in their business and save them from financial ruin. Little did she know that Gunner McNeill is none other than Master G, and if she wants to have a new partner in business, she's going to be having one in bed this week, too. I love how Gunner makes Jillian stretch her comfort zone. The staid daughter is used to wearing a bun and ankle length dresses, but Gunner isn't going to go for that. He takes her shopping and dresses her to stop hearts and start the water cooler gossip humming. She takes all his commands like a trooper and underneath all the fretting, she is loving every minute of it. Gunner isn't a sadist. He doesn't play with floggers and they don't go for public play in the club. Humiliation isn't really his thing either. The man likes toys, spanking and LOTS of sex. This one is a pretty good choice for those who are new to BDSM books or BDSM Fetish Club centered books where the play can get pretty emotionally and physically intense. Not here. This shows the loving and sensual side of the BDSM spectrum. If you just have a little time for a short hot read, this is a great one to check out. The story isn't complex, but it hit all the key elements and left a smile on my face. Cooper McKenzie is one of my favorite erotic authors. Her style is so smooth that I find myself slipping right in and becoming oblivious to all the distractions around me. An innocent, sexy, fun treat. BDSM fans make sure to check this one out. And ENJOY!" -- Michelle R, The Romance Reviews

4 CHERRIES: "Most of us get flowers or presents on our thirtieth birthday. Lucky Jillian finds her master! For her birthday, Blaze takes her friend Jillian to Club Esoteria. There Jillian is swept away by Master G. Jillian has the most erotic experience of her life with him, but afterward, Jillian freaks and runs away. Unbeknownst to her, Master G is actually Gunner McNeil; the man who she's hoping will be her company's savior. Gunner McNeil is a mouthwatering hero. He's a strong, smart, decisive, and looking for the right woman. I loved how gentle he was with Jillian when he met her. It was neat that Jillian thought of him as a “golden bear” when he was naked. I loved that when Jillian got scared and took off, he ran after her. He tried to find her even though he only knew her first name. He saw the truth in what she did for her family's company. He wasn't your typical dominant; he truly cared about Jillian's feelings and would alter his actions based on them. Jillian Hall is a heroine you can identify with. Yes she's a beautiful redhead, but it's what inside that really resonates. She's worked in her father's family business her whole life. She's caught in the family business trap, underpaid and working harder than anyone else. On top of that, she's incredibly conscious of her reputation since her relationship with her father is more complex than most. She's visiting Club Esoteria for her second time when Master Gunner identifies her as a submissive he would like to train. Although, she's read novels about it, she’s never tried the submissive life before. Jillian is smart, strong, has doubts, and is willing to go after what she wants. Her journey is interesting to follow. Watching Gunner ignite with Jillian was arousing. There was just something about their chemistry that sucked me in. Their sex was smoking hot and detailed. But it's not the sex scenes that I'll remember most about this book. Ms. McKenzie created such a compelling pull between Jillian and Gunner that their conversation literally amazed me. Jillian's fears, Gunner's compassion and understanding...just, wow! I will say this, although I've only given Jillian's Master 4 cherries, I'd actually classify the whole Club Esoteria series as at least 5 cherries overall. There's just something about the Club Esoteria world that I've fallen in love with. I've enjoyed each book and I'd say the sum of all the books create a wonderful reading experience. I'd kind of equate it to Nora Roberts' Macgregor series. Each book is good, but together they're incredible. I preordered this book and hope another one is coming. If you're looking for a hot BDSM romance with a hero and heroine that will amaze you, I recommend Jillian's Master." -- Violet, Whipped Cream Reviews

4 TEA CUPS: "Gunner is going to be speechless somewhat when he encounters a submissive ready to be taken in a sex club. This story just pulled me in and did not let me go. The characters were so intense and well developed that it was amazing. Master Gunner was a total Dom but seemed surprised for his first encounter with Jillian, because no one had ever done want she did to him. I left sorry for him because he was into Jillian but good things come to those who wait. But it gets even better when they both realize that they will be working together in order to gave Jillian’s family business. Love how Jillian was able to give so much to Gunner not even realizing if he even had any feeling for her but at least she wanted to learn how to become a good submissive. Jillian seemed so content with herself but when it came to her relationship with her father she hesitates and becomes insecure. That was my only draw back with her character but Gunner made her realize that she needed to come to some understanding with her father and stand up for herself. I loved how Gunner made her feel secure and feel beautiful about herself. Okay, let’s talk about their passionate love making and you might want to be ready with something to fan yourself off with. You will be burning up in just reading about Gunner’s passion for Jillian and vise versa. It was amazing. If you’re in the mood for a little light BDSM that still makes you squirm in your seat, this is the perfect book for you to read. As soon as you start reading this story you will be so drawn into it that you will get lost in time and by the time you know it the happily ever after has come. You’ll love it." -- Monica, Happily Ever After Reviews

He followed her into the house without comment. Once inside, he did not look around as she expected. Instead, he waited until she closed the door and automatically threw the deadbolt.

Only then did he speak. “Strip.”

Jillian glanced at the windows at the same time she toed off her shoes. One of the big reasons she loved her little house was the many windows that flooded the room with light. Instead of more traditional mini-blinds or full curtains, she opted for café curtains which gave her privacy at the same time it allowed sunlight to stream in through the top half of the windows.

She bit her lip. She’d agreed to this. She wanted him to train her. It was now time to put up or shut up. Without pause, she reached down and struggled to pull her dress over her head without messing up her hair. After laying it on the club chair next to the door, her bra followed and she was naked.

“Mmmm, beautiful,” he murmured, his eyes tracking down her body from hairline to toes. Only then did he look around the room, checking out the furniture. “Come here,” he said, leading the way to the small dining room at the back of the house.

Jillian shivered at the thought of lying over the cold, wooden dining table.

“I don’t have restraints with me, so you’ll have to do it yourself. Put your hands under your breasts as you lie down.” His voice was deeper and darker than she remembered. His tone sent renewed heat shimmering through her.

Once she was in position, he moved up behind her. He shifted her forward so the crease where her thighs met her body pressed tight against the edge of the table.

“Spread your legs,” he ordered, running one hand down her spine, starting at the nape of her neck. “You will receive eight swats for disappearing on Friday night, one for the curse you let slip in front of your father, and the two for putting off this punishment. We will also go over my rules. Repeat them,” he said as his left hand settled in the middle of her back.

“Yes, Sir.”

“First rule you already know. You will not wear panties when you are with me,” he said, right before he slapped each ass cheek sharply.

“No panties,” she gasped as fiery pain shot through her.


“No panties, Sir,” she responded.

“You will not date anyone else while we are together.” Again, a slap to each cheek though not in the same places.

“I will not date anyone else, Sir.”

His hand rubbed over the abused skin, the heat turning pain into a strange, tingling pleasure that worked its way straight to her cunt.

“You will answer my calls no matter where, no matter when.” Slap, slap.

She bit her lip to keep from crying out before saying, “I will always answer your phone calls, Sir.”

“You will wear short dresses or skirts whenever we are together.” Slap, slap.

“How short, Sir?”

“Above the knee. Shorter when we’re alone together or going out but always above the knee.”

“Yes, Sir.”

“You will keep your pretty little pussy bare.”

“You’re kidding, right?” she asked, looking over her shoulder.

His answer was three quick, hard slaps, one on each ass cheek and one to the center. She squealed as the pain overwhelmed her.

“You will know when I am kidding. This is not one of those times,” he said as he rubbed his hand over the still burning flesh.

“Yes, Sir,” she whispered with a watery sniff as her tears overflowed her eyes to drip onto the table beneath her cheek.

She sucked a breath when the fingers that had just punished her slid down the cleft between her still-smarting ass cheeks to her pussy. He slid one finger into her cunt and twisted it around.

“Baby, you’re all wet. You liked your punishment, didn’t you?”

Closing her eyes, Jillian fought to remain still. “I like your hands on me, Sir,” she admitted softly with a moan as he ran his other hand up her spine then back down again.

“Then you’ll really like this,” he said before pulling away from her. “Don’t move.”

She heard the clink of a belt and the rasp of a zipper. Then she heard tearing plastic. Shifting her breasts in her hand sent more heat through her as she admitted to herself that she couldn’t wait for what was about to happen.

A moment later, she felt his fingers spreading her lower lips. Then the blunted head of his cock pressed at her opening. As he pushed deeper and deeper, Jillian could only moan at the fullness. He was bigger than any other man she’d been with. Even her vibrator paled in comparison to his thickness as he filled her completely. Arching her neck lifted her head from the table as the hair at the base of his cock brushed against her.

She sucked a breath and made another sound as he leaned over her and his chest hair tickled her back. He shifted to nuzzle at the side of her neck before putting his lips to her ear. “Don’t come.”

She whined as he eased out until only the head remained inside her. He surged forward then set up a fast rhythm, which sent Jillian higher and higher, closer and closer to the orgasm he had just told her she could not have.

As her panting became whimpers, he continued thrusting, each stroke harder and more powerful than the one before it. His pace increased. His breathing sounded rough and harsh in the silence of the room. When she wasn’t sure how much longer she could maintain her sanity and keep from coming, he slid his hands between her chest and the table to cup her breasts. “Now, baby, cut it loose,” he whispered. “Come for me.”
