This review is for the entire Master of the Opera series which includes the following 6 instalmentsAct 1 Passionate OvertureAct 2 Ghost AriaAct 3 Phantom SerenadeAct 4 Dark InterludeAct 5 A Haunting DuetAct 6 CrescendoWhen I started this serialised novel I was expecting a dark and dirty retelling of Phantom of the Opera with added BDSM so I had high hopes and fully expected to love it Unfortunately that isn t what I ot and it turned into a weird and confusing mystical realism that included a bizaire orgy with incorporeal beings in the spirit realm In all honesty it just The Secret of the Great Pyramid got a little bit too weird for me and I came very close to not reading all 6 instalmentsIt seemed to start out well and Christy seemed to be the right mix of naive and innocent but it didn t take long before she started toet on my nerves There were so many times I just wanted to shake some sense into her and I ended up not caring about whether she was Dancing with Mr. Darcy going to survive or not The Master was deliciously creepy in the beginning but he remained too much of a mystery we never reallyot to know him well enough for me to connect with his character so I didn t feel invested in what happened to him either It didn t help that I hated the other main character Roman I know we weren t supposed to like him but his character was such a stereotypical controlling bordering on abusive boyfriend and I would have liked a bit depth I think that s my main issue with all of the characters really we never really Lesca got to see below the surface and that meant I never fully engaged with themThis isn t a bad story in fact it has a lot of fantastic reviews so I m in the minority for not loving it Iuess it just wasn t for me Master of the Opera Act 1 Passionate Overture by Jeffe Kennedy is a e Kensington publication slated for an early January 2014 release I was provided a copy of this book from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest reviewChristy has excited accepted an apprentice position in an Opera Theatre House owned by her father Her childhood friend Roman also works at the theatre his father being invested in the Opera House as well Christy had had a massive crush on Roman as teenager and her attraction is still very alive The downside is that the previous apprentice disappeared and her family insist she wouldn t just run off which is what everyone else thinks happened Christy s job is challenging that she expected as well Her first assignment is to do an inventory and nothing is computerized She must Sharpes Trafalgar go down in the catacombs of the theatre where there are shadows cobwebs and oddly enough Christy thinks she is hearing music Are the rumors about ahost ala The Phantom of the Opera just something she was told to scare her or is there something to the stories Christy is about to find out whether she wants to or notThis first installment or chapter in a new e serial from Kensington is merely a stage setting We are introduced to the main characters and the mystery is set up for us Romantic entanglements and suspects are also hinted at however just to be honest with you this first chapter doesn t have any steam at all There are hints of the direction things will Punished go and I think the reader will not be disappointed on that front in future chapters I was really engrossed in the story and I am really looking forward to reading the next books in the series I recommend this one to fans of contemporary paranormal and erotic romance even if the first chapter didn t have any steam I know the future chapters will than make up for it Over all areat start to a series and I His To Protect give this one an A So the first installment of the Master of the Opera Serial series didn t disappointment I am a fan of Jeffe Kennedy since I read Five Golden Rings I thought her attention to detail and easy yet detailed way of writing BDSM was something to be admired How she took a very independent and strong minded female that could own her sexuality in the bedroom was very telling on the smart clever writer that she is This first installment didn t lack any details The easy flow and voice of Kennedy madeetting to know these characters and the world building very easy Ke.

Nnedy wrote each character uniue and yet keeping to the original style of Phantom of the Opera Christine as a character has always been uestionable to me She was docile yet strong yet kind of pathetic all at the same time She was very much the same in this re telling which worked for me even if I didn t totally know how to feel about Christy at the point in the serial I mean she had moments where she was very well dumb Which didn t shock me She was supposed to be innocent yet trying to assert her independence Christy is a bit unflushed out for me I hope this changes I mean one moment she is cowering to Carla and seeming about ready to cry not standing up for herself Then The Master shows up and she s all of a sudden a fighter Against the possibly murderer That might be the only real beef I have with her character Ramon a bit to perfect for me in this installment Although his original version Raul was the pretty perfect one in the love triangle of the original I think this is half a modern retelling of Phantom and kind of also a murdermystery because I don t think The Master did it to be honest I could be deluding myself because I have always had a soft spot for The Phantom and him being a victim of his circumstances I think this was a Langlais correct pour les Nuls great book one areat introduction to the serial and I know it is Constantly Craving going to be better from her The tension building was brilliant and I m biting my nails waiting for Christine toet over herself and test the waters with The Master I received a copy of this book from Kensington Books via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Christine Davis is the new apprentice at the Sante Fe Opera House after the last one mysteriously went missing Reunited with childhood friend Roman her father s business partner s son and oing out on dates with him it s almost enough for her to forget how creepy the Opera House is Relegated to doing inventory work in the extremely creepy lower levels she finally meets the mysterious Opera host Christine has an intense dream about the Ghost and starts to suspect he may not be an actual Aryan Idols ghost But he s only ever been kind to her so farso who murdered her predecessor Who is the Opera Ghost So I haven t read the original Phantom of the Opera book but I have seen the movie and the stage show and I have the book in my to read stack and I have the soundtrack AND the cover by Nightwishcos ya knowyeah I m anticipating Roman being Raoul and obviously Christine is Christine A few aspects so far are similar to the stage show her hearing the music and the roses and so on This is the first in a new e serial that soing to be coming out fairy regularly by the looks of it So fat the prose has been very atmospheric you can imagine the Opera House and practically hear the music You can feel the creepiness of the lower levels My only problem with the book is that Christy is really irritating and probably the stupidest protagonist I have ever read She whines plenty About everything Her favourite topic being how inadeuate she feels To be honest if I where her i d be uestioning the fact my predecessor went missing instead of accepting that flimsy excuse iven This installment is just setting the scene and setting up the love triangle and the story it draws you in straight away and it leaves you wanting Especially as there s no steamy parts to this first installment I can hear the roans of disappointment sounding in the distance I read Master of the Opera Act 2 Ghost Aria first so I already knew what was Bourdieus Secret Admirer in the Caucasus going to happen However there is so much other stuff that will eventually be relevant in the later Acts so it really is important to read them in order Shame on me Christy I like her I think its funny and completely believable that she chastising herself about being a dumb chick in the slasher movies when she went into creepy dark spots We ve all had those thoughts when we re taking out the trash late at night or we re walking home in the dark So I thought it was refreshing to hear her be a normal human being I m also intrigued by something Christy said to herself about her counselors and her mind Hmm whats up there Roman I veot mixed feelings about him. T day she discovers that her dream job has a dark side Beneath the theater a sprawling maze of passageways are rud to be haunted Ghostly music echoes through the halls at night And Christy's predecessor has mysteriously disappeared Luckily Christy finds a friend and admirer in Roman Sanclaro the theater's wealthy and handsome patron He convince.
