REVIEW - OBEY by Raven Jayne

This is book one of ten in the Master Class series.

Lesson One:

Juliette comes from a long line of the elite rich.  Rich beyond any imagination.  And in this world, there are secrets and marriages are alliances.  

Juliette has been promised in marriage for as long as she can remember even though she's never seen his face or even know his name.  Her whole life she has been schooled to be his perfect wife. 

Her father calls her to him and tells her that her husband sent her a gift.  Although he isn't her husband yet.  She has just turned twenty-one and is impatient to finally meet her soon-to-be husband and plan her wedding.

But the gift has conditions.  She is to be sent for erotic training.  When she arrives the next day at the appointed address there is no one in the conference room.  Just a silver tray with a note telling her to remove her panties, put them on the tray, lean with her elbows on either side of the tray with the note between her teeth.

But she got tired of waiting and after thirty minutes got out of position and started to investigate the room.  Which is how he found her.  Her instructor.  Who demanded she calls him Master.  Who told her she failed the test in obedience. 

Master is a gorgeous man with dark hair and striking green eyes whose presence takes over the room.  She finds out that she has to pass Lesson One to get to the next lesson.  Not only does he not disclose his name, but he also gives her no information on the lessons or the name of her husband-to-be who ordered these lessons.

Lessons to become his toy.

Lesson One is on obedience.  She is sent to a famous Russian ballet studio for her first lessons.  

Vlad may be gorgeous, but he is the ballet instructor from hell.  She has trained in ballet since childhood and excelled in her studies, but evidently, she can't do anything correctly.  

She doesn't understand these lessons and why her promised husband has demanded that she take them.  Why would he sanction other men touching her, but she is told that every last detail is at his request and with his approval.

I love this book.  It is obviously a series of cliffhangers, but there is also a huge mystery.  Who is the man she has been promised to?  Why has it been kept a secret from her?  

This book is very well written and the characters are very relatable.  The authors have drawn me into the story as if I was there alongside Jane supporting Juliette through all her confusion.

Master (because we have no name) is well....wow!  His personality and command come through the pages.  Vlad is an exacting task maker and works Juliette to exhaustion week after week.

I'm really looking forward to Juliette's next 'lesson' and any clues as to the identity of her husband to be and what these lessons hold for her future.

Highly recommend.  This book is a dark romance and is HIGHLY erotic.  If you have triggers beware, but if not enjoy!
