It's the interview like no other.

It's THE Interview with a Master.
When Jonah Noble reveals details of his life within the world of BDSM, the tale he tells is intensely erotic, profoundly sensual, and brutally honest.
This is His world. His way.
There is only one question the man will not answer…
(BDSM erotica from a man's POV, written by a man. Contains some explicit language)
This one really jumped out of nowhere for me. Last week, I’d never even heard of Jason Luke and now I’m a huge fan and I’ve even interviewed him. Interview With A Master is the story of one dominant, Jonah Noble, telling his story over several days to a journalist intern, Leticia Fall. After she asks him several superficial questions, Jonah demands that she conducts a ‘proper’ interview and offers her a career-making interview with America’s elusive, notorious BDSM Master.
And so we begin. And from this moment I was completely captivated, utterly enthralled as I listened to that intoxicating voice telling his story. We chart his metamorphosis from horny teenage virgin to the calm, collected and very commanding dominant we see before us today and I was hooked and just about ready to kneel at his feet.
Not one to allow just one way traffic, Jonah insists that, for every revelation he gives Leticia, she reciprocates with one equally as personal about herself.
I smiled thinly and shook my head. “Not yet.‘Do ut des’, Leticia.”
“It’s a Latin term,” I explained. “It means ‘I give that you may give’. It’s your turn to answer my questions about you. That was the agreement, yes? Our deal is based on the principle of reciprocity.”
What follows is an intoxicating and highly addictive exploration of BDSM with Jonah’s story mostly told in retrospect as his fascination with his interviewer, Leticia, grows stronger as the book progresses but there’s one question he won’t answer and you will have to wait until almost the very end of the book to find out what that is. I’ve seen some criticism of the ending of the book, but for me it’s a brave decision by the author and one that I applaud.
I so enjoyed this sensual novel – I guess what makes it so different is that it’s BDSM told from the male POV by a male author. That’s not something that we see very often but it’s a fascinating insight. I was completely lost, desperate to keep turning those pages to know what was going to happen next, sadly watching the progress indicator on my Kindle creep ever close to 100%, knowing it was all about to end and I just wasn’t ready to part from Jonah. I did think there were a lot of loose ends very close to the finish and wondered if it would all come together by the conclusion but it did and its really quite a shocking ending that took me by surprise, even though the clues were there, and had me gasping in shock.
“More than that, generally speaking, in a BDSM relationship, the submissive is the one who holds the real power.”
Leticia shook her head. “How can that be?”
“Because BDSM is based on consent,” I said. “The Master cannot exert control and power over someone who does not willingly –” I raised my finger to emphasize the point, “willingly offer themselves. A Master without a submissive is a guy. Just a guy. He needs someone who wishes to submit to him, in order to become a Master.”
This is a very frank and deliciously hot account of Jonah’s sexual proclivities. It’s eerily atmospheric and the style is fairly reminiscent of Anne Rice’s Interview With The Vampire – I definitely got the same slightly haunting feeling reading this although, of course, the subject matter is very different. Yes, this is highly titillating but it also reads like literary BDSM – it’s a thinkin’ gal’s piece of erotica. It goes deeper than just the physical as Jonah talks at length about the psychological balance between a dom and his sub and I found myself falling for him and was a lost cause by the end of the book. he’s a delicious dominant and yet I found him to be really quite a lonely figure and I felt sad for him. Despite being a man who seemingly has everything and a collection of submissives at his beck and call, he’s lacking that real connection that a true couple shares and I so wanted this for him.
So this is a highly engaging, utterly compelling and thoughtful piece of fiction and I’m going to name this one a Sinfully Sexy Recommended Read
