Review: To Have and To Master by Sparrow Beckett

Book Description

Following Playing Hard to Master and Finding Master Right, Sparrow Beckett delivers a seductive tale of surrendered innocence with this third novel in the Masters Unleashed series. 

Konstantin, a powerful Dominant, is used to fast living and wanton submissives. But after years of his grandmother haranguing him to marry, he agrees to meet a girl from her rural Russian village. Naturally submissive, Varushka turns out to be everything Konstantin wants in a woman. 

At first her innocence is disturbing, but her enthusiasm for life captivates him. When their relationship becomes a mutual seduction, Konstantin introduces Varushka to wicked pleasures she never imagined. His attentive care wins her absolute devotion. However, when Varushka’s father finds out about Konstantin’s past, he whisks her back home to Russia. 

Will Konstantin fight to reclaim her, or will his guilt convince him to relinquish the only woman he’s ever loved?

My Review

I've enjoyed this series so far so I decided to go ahead and read Konstantin's book as well. We don't really get to know Konstantin too well in the series up to this point so I have to admit I was curious about him and his agreement to meet someone his grandmother picked out for him to possibly marry. It made him interesting, that's for sure. 

These two were so much fun to watch get to know each other. Varushka is so happy, so excited with all the new things she's seeing in America once Konstantin brings her to his home to get to know one another. He's giving her time to get used to him and what he likes but her eagerness is killing him when he's trying to go slow with her and give her time to get used to the idea of marrying him. 

So when Konstantin decides to bring her to a BDSM club so she can see exactly what kinds of stuff he likes in the bedroom, it's sure an eye opener for Varushka but she seemed more interested than intimidated which surprised him in a good way. 

Varushka constantly surprised me and surprised Konstantin too and it was absolutely hilarious a few times because some of the things she did he just wasn't expecting. And then Konstantin's grandma surprised him and his shock over what she says to him just made me laugh. 

When Verushka's parents trick her into coming home to Russia and tell her that they no longer give their permission for her to marry Konstantin, she's heartbroken but determined to change their minds. 

I really like how this one ended. I think this might have been my favorite of all the books I've read in this series so far. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
