Master of O, follows criminal lawyer Steven Diamond as he goes through his seemingly perfect daily life. He has money, a nice body, a fabulous apartment, enemies, and just so happens to be deliciously kinky. His faults are everything else in between, beginning and ending with his egotistical personality.
Author Ernest Green is a prominent Dom in the west-coast area, who thought that he could write a Fifty Shades novel AND do it better. Steven Diamond, is supposed to be a more put-together Christian Grey, and by all accounts he is. He has a successful practice and is seemingly sane as far as a Dom can be. I should qualify this by saying that I am not, nor will I ever be a submissive. I am also not being sarcastic when I tell you that this book made me realize that I could never be one. With that said, I’ll admit that while extremely informational and demonstrative, the novel fell short of the romantic fluff that makes my heart swell.
So the basic synopsis is this: Steven is living his merry life when his brother comes to him and proposes that they share a submissive, which is really just a sly way of playing matchmaker. The submissive in questions is O (that’s where the title makes sense) who is an erotic photographer for the magazine Steven owns, but his brother runs for him. O and Steven hit it off at first, with a few bumps in the road, until suddenly they don’t.
The Dom was, in short, a selfish douchebag who lost his ‘perfect’ submissive because he couldn’t even follow his own rules. AND to top it all off, he didn’t even learn anything from his mistake. He didn’t chase the girl; he didn’t take the time to reflect as a man and as a Dom. Instead he just went on his merry way, seducing more women and being the only ‘big dick’ in the room.
