It is sad for me to say but I think it is time for me to part ways with this series. The last book was the first clue that this series was taking a turn I wasn’t on board for but I held out hope for this one, sadly it just isn’t there for me anymore. The umph that was in the first books is gone, honestly at times I feel like I am reading a textbook with some of the inner thoughts and other things that are described at very long detailed length, which just aren’t relevant to the actual stor [...]
Another well thought out book by Kallypso Masters. There had been a lot of research put into this. It's a rare thing to have in the romance genre. It makes the story feel that much more real. It's complex and messy but not unnecessary complicated. Sure there's a fair share of unbelievable and downright impossible moments but there are few and far between so they could be easily ignored. A rollercoaster of emotion that leaves you invested in all of the characters and wishing all that much harder [...]
It hurts me that I gave this book only one star. As much as I liked the first books, I really dislike this one. I read "only" about 30% of it, but I just couldn't read any further. It just dragged on and on, it has weeks that my kindle was "stuck" on this book, and I just can't invest any more time into it.First of all, I dislike Cassie. I never liked her to begin with, and after what she basically forces Luke to do, I dislike her with a passion. She gives me high blood pressure! And all that ev [...]
I had been looking forward to this book for so long. But let me tell ya. I've never been more disappointed. This was the longest, most drawn out storyline ever. And it was a little ridiculous with all the spiritual crap going on. Communicating with animals?? This was supposed to be a BDSM book. There were 2400+ pages on my iPad. They didn't even get to the good stuff till after page 2000. Ugh!! Loved the other books in this series though.
Dull, uninteresting read. I enjoyed most of Ms. Master's Rescue Me series, but not this one. Thought Cassie was boring & had no idea why Luke would carry a torch for this woman. The plot, such as it was, was not all that interesting either. The author also managed to make a previous character, Adam, dull & boring - how that was possible, I have no idea. Blech.
Ahhh, loved it!!!I feel like I have waited an age to read this story, and quite frankly I have. Luke and Cassie have been the hidden gems in this series to date and to understand and appreciate their lives, apart and together, we needed to unravel them. After ending with the avalanche, this story starts with Cassie caring for an injured Luke as he recovers from concussion and hyperthermia. Cassie, who lives alone in the mountains, finds Luke’s presence invasive but she tries to put aside her f [...]
I won´t be mentioning anything that could be a huge spoiler, but maybe learn a little bit about the culture you're referring to before publishing the book.I'll just mention three things that drove me INSANE:1. Any town with huge mountains and freezing weather is probably 7 to 10 hours outside of Lima, so going to Lima for a drink and then going back to said town, impossible.2. Maybe a 10% of the Peruvian population actually knows how to dance Marinera and if you listen to it, honestly it's very [...]
Originally Reviewed For: Tea and BookWhen you read a series you have certain expectations, you have bonded with the characters and want more of past characters as well as learning about this particular couple By choosing to write a saga instead of a series, Kallypso Masters, has mastered that concept. We don't just get glimpses of beloved characters from previous books, they are active participants in the current book. Sure some of them just blink in and out, they are off having their own lives [...]
4.5 starsCassie's and Luke's book was so worth the wait And a triumphant return for Kallypso Masters following her battle with cancer. The 4.5-star rating is not about sentimentality; it is about the powerful story. Cassie Lopez is an artist who survived a vicious gang rape when she was a college student. Her PTSD is so severe that she lives in seclusion in a mountain top cabin, far from crowds, and (especially) far from men who trigger terrifying flashbacks. Luke Denton is a widower whose pregn [...]
Sad to say, this just did not work for me. I think I'm done with this series as the last three have been a steady decline of disappointments, and there was nothing here leading me to need to know more about these folks.The length of this would not have bothered me if it been faster paced and a better told story, but there was a lot of repetition and very little momentum other than my finger tapping the kindle to turn the pages. It was kind of good visiting with the other characters, but very few [...]
Oh man this was SO boring. Like SO boring. I did not expect that. Promising premise. But JFC, I had to fight sleep at a few points. And I ended up skimming most of the book because it was DULL. A lot of the "supernatural" stuff made me roll my eyes so hard. And the whole "twist" of them getting married was ridiculous at best. And seriously, EVERYTHING was "exotic" to Luke. EVERYTHING. White, American Male stereotype much? I wanted to root for Cassie, for her to overcome her tragic past, but I ju [...]
DNF at 90%. Wow, that was a bad book.Sometimes you read about a character thinking "I want to be her friend". Yeah, with Cassie? Not so much, I wanted to punch her face! She was raped, which is HORRIBLE. But she envied all her friends, hated her life, complained ALL THE TIME but she didn't do anything to change her life!Luke? He was NO ALPHA, he was a push-over! What an unsexy guy.Ms Masters, have you ever been to Peru? You must confuse it with Arabian countries or India. Never ever heard a stor [...]
SPOILER ALERTI loved all the previous books. They all had a good story and likeable characters. This book wa horrible. It read almost like the Savi's book and the end soo predictable. What were we supposed to think when they went back to Peru? That Pedro wouldn't show up? I see a parallel, kidnapped and saved at the last second. Luke was also pretry pathetic at the beginning. How many times is the man going to end up unconcious in the snow? It felt like there was alot of "filler" content. Unnece [...]
For some time I have looked at number of pages of book, I was surprised by length, too long but I made it, not been much hard because I love Mrs Sinclair and this saga. Also if I must speak my mind, the Cassie and Lukas's story was too long winded , and maybe we had so much expectancy for Cassie and Lukas's characters , but those portraits in someway not made it. Cassie is a strong woman but also naive and her speaking at animals and godness was a bit weird. Luke is wonderful man, but also a sai [...]
Now I know why it took me so long to go back to this book and read it after starting in 2015. IT'S TOO DAMN LONG!!!!! And this was Luke and Cassie's story which I had really been looking forward to reading.I liked the whole storyline, but seriously, it was almost a DNF for me because of the length. But alas, I did finish and it was part of my monthly challenge for May for "Try Again".
Where's the "can't give it enough stars as it is so stunning"-category? Really, 5 stars aren't enough! Kally outdid herself once again. If you have already read the other books in the Rescue Me Saga, you know that every book is different, unique and captures you. So it's no surprise that Nobody's Dream is yet another unique experience and exceeded my expectations.As known from the previous books Luke lost his wife while hiking and also Angels father lost his life trying to rescue Maggie. This ha [...]
Best Rescue Me Saga book to date!!!This is Cassie and Luke's story. Cassie was betrayed in the worst way by someone she was suppose to be protected by. Broken, she has isolated herself from humanity in her mountain cabin her only companionship are her fur babies.Her life is thrown into turmoil when Luke, who had been following her, in a non stalker way, to make she got home okay, is taken by an avalanche. She rescues him but with no way to get him medical attention he needs she must do it hersel [...]
Read April 5th to April 6, 2015MAGICAL AND MAGNIFICENT!!!This novel was so worth the wait!! And trust me, it is a full fledged novel. Cassie and Luke's story was captivating and very intricate. Cassie is so wounded, scarred and suffers from her own form of PTSD that she can hardly stand human contact. Luke is warm, patient, welcoming and loves to rescue animals. When he first met Cassie, he was intrigued. Overtime, he became enchanted. This was a magnificently written story about two people who [...]
DisappointingMay contain spoilersI had very hard time reading this book. I've been a fan of the authors and have devoured the other books in the series but this one was disappointing. The repetition was annoying. At time I felt things were discussed over and over to increase the word count. Then the editing came into play - Luke gets out a dish that Cassie made, thinks she's such a good cook and then a paragraph later he's throwing away the congealed gravy and mashed potatoes from his frozen tv [...]
Oh no!!! really disappointed with this book, took me over a month to read which is a shame as I am an such an avid reader, was really looking forward to Cassie and Luke's story but it just never touched me the way the others have done, yes we all know of her trauma and not everyone deals and heals the same , but in their story it was soooooo long drawn. Luke was a real godsend, and I'm thankful for reading about his caring and nurturing ways, but above that their is nothing more I can say to thi [...]
Beautiful love storyWhat a beautiful love story! Cassie is broken but Luke is there to help her heal. He was patient with his words and love. Cassie was able to accept Luke for the kind hearted man that he is. I loved every word and glad that they took there time exploring their relationship first. The book brought out sad and happy tears.I also enjoyed reconnecting with the other characters.
Got to 25% and just couldn't contine. I found the heroines lack of use of contractions annoying and the plot bad. Everything is so dramatic and over the top. And then the poof lets get married for no reason just made me say enough. So sad because I really liked the first couple of books in the series and really wanted to read about Karla and Adam. But in the last few books the dialog and plots were cheesey.
This is my first review and unfortunately it is not going to be good. I absolutely loved this author when I first came upon the series and then I waited and waited some more and then waited even longer. So I am giving up. Which is pretty sad considering I waited patiently for YEARS. So sorry but I will never buy another book from this author because I feel strongly that she got caught up in the conferences and hoopla and totally forgot about her readers.
the book is horrible. the only thing that i liked about it are stories of other characters from previous books.Cassie is so boring and annoying. she's a witch, horse whisperer, melodramatic and irritating because ok, she was rapedbut god! get over it. she is too weak, and luke doesn't deserve her, he deserves better.
I really enjoy this author and this series, however this one was just ok for me. I enjoyed Luke and Cassie as characters, however the book seemed too long and I really could have done without so much of the other characters in the series hijacking the book, just Cassie and Luke's story would have been great. I skimmed over the entire storyline between Adam and Kitty in this one.
This was an enjoyable book but it wasn't my favorite out of the series. It was longer than I think it really needed to be. At times I was frustrated with Cassie's character and the repetitiveness of her internal conflict. I enjoyed the continuation of the other relationships from previous books being included.
