Product Description

Happily ever after ending; no cliffhanger.

Haunted by a tragic accident that yanked his beloved wife from his side, Kristoffer Roar Larson has been going through the motions in life. But when he meets the dedicated surgeon and humanitarian, Pamela Jeffrey, he feels an undeniable connection to her, stirring feelings he’d buried long ago. After encountering her in a compromising position on a tour of a BDSM academy, he realizes there’s more to her than meets the eye. Fascinated by her assertive alpha personality, coupled with her desire to submit and serve, Pamela intrigues him.

As Pamela shines light once more into the dark corners of his life, Kristoffer finds himself struggling between remaining in his safe and lonely world or emotionally opening himself up to a vibrant woman, who asks for nothing more than he’s able to give. Guiding her in mind-training exercises to prepare her for some future Dom, Kristoffer finds his body awakening as well. Will Kristoffer be able to close the door to his past and open his heart to the ginger-haired sprite who makes him question everything he once believed?

SPECIAL NOTE: Roar is a standalone novel that has some familiar secondary characters from the Rescue Me Saga, but the main characters are new. You don’t have to read the series to fully enjoy this book.

The way she layers the storylines is amazing. This book was phenomenal; I absolutely loved it from the first page to the last page.
ROAR is a story filled with angst, heartbreak, friendship and the growth of a deep and committed love; one that made my heart pound at times. This book just flows on so many levels; it is hard to do it justice. I felt that I was on an emotional roller-coaster whilst reading this book. There was so much happening in the book I don’t quite know where to start. I often wonder how Ms. Masters comes up with the storylines for her books; each book just seems to get better and better.
From early snippets I read, I was fairly certain that I would fall for Kristoffer Roar Larson; how hard I fell was the only real surprise. He comes very close to being my favourite of all Ms. Masters leading men and that is saying something.
This was one of the best books I have read. One of the things that I love about Kallypso Masters is that her characters are never one dimensional, there are always so many layers and Kristoffer and Pamela were no exception. Each layer is peeled away, just like an onion. I always knew I would love Kristoffer but Pamela; she really came into her own and surprised me with her adaptability and her unswerving devotion and love. The vulnerability that both Kristoffer and Pamela showed was at times a heart wrenching.
Have you ever anticipated a book so much that you were afraid to start reading it? That’s what happened to me with ROAR, I knew if I started I wouldn’t stop and then where would I be? Exactly where I am now - suffering withdrawal yet again and one heck of a book hangover.

3.0 out of 5 stars ROAR by Kallypso Masters 11 July 2016
By MariLou - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
.
It is very odd for me to read a book and not be able to immediately say if I liked it or not. But that happened with this book. Even after letting it digest for several days, I still can't tell you my overall reaction.

For review purposes, I'd like to state that I read this book on my kindle. It is not so accurate with page numbers, but it does show the percentage read.

You can read any number of the reviews already here and be able to get the jist of the story. I give Kallypso Masters many kudos for the basic plot of dealing with a spouse in a PVS, and how tough it is to balance life for the other spouse. The lines aren't clear. It's a real life situation that people face. To write about it, not shy around it, took fortitude. Good job, Kally!

That being said, I have to be honest and say the first 80% of the book felt like walking thru knee deep sludge. Yes, this is a heavy subject. And yes, Kristoffer is having a lot of internal battles. It's the key to the story. What I disliked was the -copious- amounts of repeating the same thing about his internal battles. Over and over and over. To cut out several of those moments would not only physically shorten the book, but it would also keep the story moving along at a faster speed. Which then means less sludge. And cutting several out would not take away from the story.

Pamela's character was confusing at first. She caught a fever overseas, is sent home to heal, does not properly take care of herself (despite the fact she is a doctor), and is taking submissive training at The Denver Academy? These things don't make much sense as the background to Pamela. They don't go together at all. Fortunately, as the book progressed, her character seemed more normal.

Kristoffer's tour of The Denver Academy surprised me a lot. It is a part that was written in collaboration with Red Phoenix. It appears in Red's book "Brie Masters Love in Submission". I readily admit to being a fan of Red Phoenix as well as Kallypso Masters. To read the same scene from each author's perspective was almost as different as night and day. Red's book was bright, cheerful, and extremely funny. Kally's book was a dark mood, and the humor seemed to be missing. Each version is appropriate in their own books. I simply hope that readers will give each side a chance to be enjoyed.

At the 80% point in the book, Kristoffer and Pamela finally have sex for the first time. It is not a requirement of a romance book in any genre to write the steamy stuff within the first few chapters. But having it come so late added to the heaviness of the book.

On a positive note, the last 20% off the book really moved. The plot got lighter, everyone is happier, issues get resolved, and so forth.

But therein lies my confliction. Do I rate the book on the first 80%, as that is the majority? Or do I rate this book on the last 20% because that's when the story -finally- picked up? Now we are full circle to not being able to say if I liked the book, or not. Ugh.

I am a big fan of Kallypso Masters' books. The Rescue Me Saga had me riveted from the beginning. I really wanted to like Roar because she's a fabulous author. And it is the reason I kept reading to the end of this book when I definitely would not have done so in a different situation.

Thank you, Kally, for persevering thru many rewrites of Roar. It must be tough to have your muses pulled and tugged by outside influences when it's your story to tell. I am not sorry I read Roar. I'm simply quite conflicted on whether this was a good book, or not, in my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars An emotional roller coaster. 30 June 2016
By Cindy O - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
One man's deep, emotional journey back to living after he self imposed himself into an emotional exile after his wife, the love of his life, is left in a permanent vegetative state after an accident.

As your reading Kristoffer Roar Larson story it does make you think what would you do if the person you loved with all your heart for 20 years is for all intensive purposes gone except for their beating heart. He chose to honor his vows of for better or for worse, in sickness and in health, until death do us part. This took a hearty toll on his soul. This is his story of unexpectedly finding his second soulmate in life and dealing with the guilt of is he dishonoring his vows or is he getting a second chance at love and to live again in the light.

I thought the author did a great job of showing us both sides – How the husband feels and also how his family and friends feel. I dont think there is a right and wrong answer here it was truly heart warming to see when Kristoffer finally gave into his feelings for Pamela. Just because he chose to love another woman again doesnt mean that his love for his first wife is any less.

There is much more to the story that I am telling in this review but I'm going to leave that for the reader to experience themselves. This author has always written great emotional military stories in the past – this one is deep emotional story but of a different kind.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Emotionally Riveting Story 4 July 2016
By Knotty Girl Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Sometimes a book comes along that breaks the mold in it's genre, Roar is one of these books. A long awaited new title from Kally, this is a standalone from the Rescue Me series we all know and love, but there are characters here from that series.

This isn't your typical romance or erotica novel, so be aware of that going in. It will definitely pull at your heart strings, it will make you laugh, cry and rejoice life. That said, of course, there is the steamy stuff you've come to expect from Kally as well.

Kristoffer Roar Larson was in a car accident four years ago with his wife Tori, and while he was relatively unscathed, Tori has been living ever since in a permanent vegetative state. Not one to shirk his vows, he's remained faithful to her ever since. Then he meets Pamela.

Dr Pamela Jeffery is a student submissive at the Denver Academy. (If this name sounds familiar, it's because it's from Red Pheonix's Brie Masters Love in Submission) She is standing naked in front of the class for a lesson when Kris comes through on a tour. Her and Kris know each other from working on a project of Kris's cousin Gunnar's. She looks to him to not reveal her secret.

Just when the two of them figure they are safe from seeing each other again after that night, Gunnar asks them to work on the project together. As much as Kris tries to stay away from Pamela, he finds he can't. He feels terrible guilt over this as he still loves his wife. Pamela, is recovering from an illness she contracted overseas and Kris sees she's overdoing it. He also notices she can't quite focus. He then offers to train her with some exercises. He'll be her top only. No emotions, no sex. But then Tori's health changes, and Pamela proves just how much she cares for Kris.

As I said, this book brings up a lot of emotions and the relationship between Kris and Pamela evolves slowly. It's an incredible, beautiful read that raises the question of what would you do if faced with keeping your loved one alive? The BDSM scenes we've come to love from Kally, as I said, are still here and are as hot as ever. If you buy a new book this year. Buy Roar.

2.0 out of 5 stars HARSH ALERT 22 August 2016
By SusanT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
UH OH. Time to stop letting the characters write the books. Less partying, more story telling. The main message of this book (and there are plenty in this preachy tomb) is, when choosing a doctor, check for signs of ADD.

It is time for an intervention. I love Ms. Master's books, read them all three times. But, to be very blunt, if this had been her first book, it would have been the last. I bought it the first day it was out. And then I struggled to get through it. I gave it a rest, read the fabulous reviews, tried again. Nope. Still boring, tedious. I no longer even care what happens to these characters.

Ms. Masters, you have so many fans and you cannot believe a one of them. I'm happy that you obviously enjoyed your trip up and down the coast of California. But the money would have been better spent on an honest editor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grab your tissues!! 12 July 2016
By Kristina L. Metcalf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The things you will need to get through this book are: tissues, wine, and ice cream. Oh, and tell your family they're on their own until you finish!!!

Roar is a standalone, but its characters are side characters from Kallypso's Rescue Me Saga.
Kristoffer Roar Larson, is financial adviser to his cousin Gunner. After tragedy struck his marriage his life has been home, work, and the facility that takes care of his beloved wife.
Pamela Jeffrey, is a surgeon who goes to other countries to help in war torn areas.
She also is a Alpha sub trying to find her way.
Working together on a project for Gunner they spend more time together and get to know each other.
By spending more time together they learn that Kristoffer is the Dom to help Pamela learn more about herself as a sub and he gets to be the Dom he once was.
This is by no means a ménage story in the usual since.
While Kristoffer still loves his wife, by getting to know more about Pamela as they work together he learns that he can live again since his wife Tori isn't coming back to him, he's just got to come to grips with the guilt he fills.
Pamela knows, as a Dr and as a woman, that Kristoffer isn't going to leave his wife but she can love him and help him deal with the way he feels about finally getting on with is life.
Omg, the way that Kristoffer loves Tori is so heartbreaking and the way the Pamela helps deal with him and love him during Tori's rough times is wonderful.
I cried sooo many tears during this its not funny. These three people are just beautiful inside and out. Watching Pamela come into her own as a sub, Kristoffer returning to the land of the living, and the to of them with Tori is breathtaking.
Even if you've not read any of the Rescue Me Saga, you have to read this story!!!!!
If this were s the first Kallypso Masters book you read, you will be hooked and have to read the rest!!
