There's a monster in every closet, and I'm in yours.

My name is Noah. I'm not a nice person. This isn't cupcakes and candyland, love.

I'll take you, break you, and offer you to the highest bidder without a second thought. You're mine now. It's business, nothing personal. You wouldn't understand, and I'm not going to explain it. Sorry, love, you don't mean a thing to me.

Just know that there's a monster in every closet, and I'm in yours.

Author Note - This dark romance novel contains themes that may be discomforting to some people. If you are sensitive to depictions of violence, then this book is not recommended for you.

Man’s POV = Ethan, Woman’s POV = Cerys

There is a light at the end of every dark tunnel, no matter how dim it may seem.

I've been a bad bird. This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years old due to its use of sexual content, substance use, and/or violence. Come be a bad bird with me!

If there is one thing you can expect from this review it’s cussing, a lot of fucking cussing. It cannot be helped. You have been warned.

At A Glance

What the fuck did I just read? I am traumatized…and intrigued?

The Good

I…I….don’t know. I mean. What do I do with my hands? What the hell do I do with my hands???? Should I be sitting? Maybe I should stand. Where am I?

Master Over You is the mindfuck to end all mindfucks. You are not going to get any darker than this book. We start off with Noah kidnapping a girl to train as a sex slave and sell her later down the road. When he is about to rape her, he gets kidnapped himself. And then the fucking world ends. Noah finds out what hell truly is at the hands of Angeline. Noah is a horrible person, he knows it, we know it. He deserves what he has coming to him, but that doesn’t mean he takes anything lying down. He screams, he fights, he cusses so much that half his sentences are curse words. If only he knew why Angeline was doing this to him.

Oh Angeline. What a crazy, psychotic bitch. But an adorable crazy, psychotic bitch. She is fucked up in all ways. Something happened to her a long time ago and she has never been the same. Let’s give you a glimpse of the crazy that is Angeline: She doesn’t just torture, she has torture devices. She loves the taste of blood. She really likes fingernails…though they don’t have to be attached to a hand. Yeah, chew on those fun tidbits. Bitter, right?

So, Master Over You is about these two assholes torturing each other and having scary sex until the big twist finally comes. And what a surprise it was. If you think the first half is fucked up, you might as well just die right now because the next half will obliterate your soul. I wish I could scrub/wash my eyes out, or have the ladyballs to gouge out my brain because these images I have in my head will never go away, and I will never be the same because of them.

Then there is Chastity. Seriously? I can’t, I just can’t.

Surprisingly, the ending is somewhat sweet, if lots of pain, blood, and the fuckiest fucked up relationship can be considered sweet. This book will leave a huge impression on anyone who reads it. Some of you will throw up (which I did a bit in my mouth for one scene), some will go insane (that’s okay, we all float down here anyways), and some of you will fall in love. If you fell in love with this book, WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?

The Bad

The inner monologue got a little much. I did skim a bit when the main characters thought themselves into oblivion.

There were these deleted scenes at the end, like 25% of the book was deleted scenes, which I almost skipped. I am happy I didn’t since the Epilogue happened to be after them. I thought that was weird. I bet a lot of people missed the Epilogue because of this.

The Snuggly

Was this sex? Was is rape? Was is BDSM? I don’t know! I’m so confused. Is this a dream? Maybe I’m dead and this is hell. Or heaven?

I expected A LOT of sex, and there was…but there also wasn’t. Fuck, this is so hard to explain. It’s not romantic, but it also kinda was in a ‘can I wear pieces of you as jewelry’ sort of of way.

I do want to warn you that there are rape scenes in flashbacks and they get bad.

Final Thoughts

I can’t tell anyone to read this book because it’s so fucking wrong, but I want you all to suffer with me so please, please read Master Over You. It’s all rainbows and puppies, I swear! Highly recommended.


“There’s monsters in every closet.  You don’t get rid of monsters by shining a fucking flashlight on them, though.  You know how you deal with monsters?  It’s simple.  I’m going to fucking tell you exactly how right now.  You become a bigger monster. ”  

I fell in love with a monster and she ate my fucking soul. I let her, though.


“This is fucked up. This is really fucked up, but that’s what makes it so good. It is terrifying. I don’t know if she’s doing it on purpose or if she’s so fucking crazy she can’t help it.”


“Noah, you are incorrigible and rude.”
“You fucking kidnapped me. You bit me. You slammed my head against a fucking wall. What the fuck do you want from me, love?”

    Umm, you’ve actually scared me… So yeah, I haven’t read any erotica in a while. I think the Fifty Shades Trilogy was my last book of the genre. I’m thinking…… let me think!!

    • Jennifer Bielman

      I scared myself. I don’t know if you could handle this one. This is like Fifty Shades from HELL!!!

  3. Jaclyn Canada

    Eeek! Don’t think I can handle this one. I don’t particular like vomiting even if it’s only in my mouth a little bit. This review was incredible though! Seriously I was laughing the whole damn way through 😀
