Cassie finally gets together with Phalen.  She knows she is submissive and knows Phalen will push her limits, but she is willing to learn because she loves him. 

Ink Master is one hot book that slowly introduces Cassie to the world of BDSM.  Most women would love to have the type of Master that Phalen is because of his patience and knowledge.  After reading this story, I think that Ms. Stockton could give another of my favorite BDSM authors a run for her money when it comes to telling a fantastic story with a heavy BDSM theme.  

Some of the secondary characters are from two previous books - Quarterback Blitz and Field of Play - and while they are not considered part of a series, they should be read before Ink Master.  That being said, the suspense in this story will keep you on your toes until the end.  The information about stalking the author gives is great and I liked the way she handled some of the documentation issues.   

Family dynamics and prejudices about BDSM abound in this story.  Family loyalty shows up quite a bit as well.  The relationships described are definitely true to life about friendships on behalf of both the main and secondary characters.  I did have to laugh at some of the antics that siblings and friends pulled sometimes.  

Cassie and Phalen’s relationship will scorch the pages and the author also gives some very sound advice about one situation between the two.  My heart melted during the scene where Phalen proposes.  This is one book that should be on every BDSM lover’s bookshelf.
