The Luckiest Master, is the third book of Sean Michaels series called Iron Eagle Gym.
In this story we meet Sawyer Whitehead (Saw or Jude) who is a sub and who lost his lover and master years ago and is convinced he is the cause of him dying. Witt is cautious but friendly and really loves to help his friends, and to serve. That was what he mainly did for his master Tim when he was alive.
Then we have Damien Richardson (Day) the new manager at the gym after Bran quit, he’s charming and easy going and soon finds himself very charmed by the sad but yet lovely Witt and spite the fact that Witt won’t work for Day officially he promises to help the man out until he can find a permanent person to help him out with the administrative duties at the gym.
Saw is lovely and no one with a heart can feel anything but sorry for him and just love him, Day is charming and thoughtful but that is about it with this book. Wow! The day when I had to struggle to get through a Sean Michael book, seriously I’m quite shocked because I for one never thought that day would come. I’m actually quite disappointed, there’s enough Sean Michael in this book to be positive that it is one of his books but the fun, the quirkiness, the explosiveness that I associate with a great Sean Michael book is more or less non-existent. What saves this book is the beginning of it and the ending the middle is just x-marked chapters on repeat, reading the same thing over and over and over again. This isn’t like Sean to write like this, there’s always a lot of sex in Sean Michael’s books but this is was really like reading the same chapter over and over again, like 5 or 6 times in a row.
There was no interaction with the other Iron Eagle Gym characters, Bran flew by once or twice, but that was about it. Where were Tyrone, Lance and Tyde or other new characters for that matter?
Even though I liked both Saw (who later becomes Jude) and Day it wasn’t enough to make this a good, fun, emotional rollercoaster read that I associate with a Sean Michael book. If you are an
avid Sean Michael reader then you might want to read this book to read all books from the entire series and it is a sweet story, but really this could be consider a stand alone because unless you count the fact that Day works at the Iron Eagle Gym it doesn’t have anything to do with the rest of the series. If you are a Sean Michael virgin then I suggest you start with another book before heading to this one. It was ok but that’s all.
When Master Damien Richardson (Day to his friends) takes over the front desk manager job at the Iron Eagle Gym, he knows he’s going to need an assistant. But finding the right person for the job is harder than he thought it would be. When he meets Saw, he thinks he’s found the solution to all his problems, and maybe something more.
Sawyer Whitehead lost his master to a tragic car accident some years ago, and since then one opportunity after another has gone sour on him. Thoroughly convinced he’s cursed and a jinx to everything and everyone he touches, he refuses to officially become Day’s assistant because he knows that as soon as he does, something terrible will happen. He’s even more determined not to get involved with Day, despite his attraction, because it would kill him to be responsible for tragedy befalling the lovely man.
Day must convince Saw that he’s not cursed and that together, they can face any challenge that comes their way—in both their professional and personal partnerships.
