In part four of Rebecca’s Lost Journals, My Master , it’s Rebecca turn to claim control and set the limits in her relationship.

Due to the strong sexual content of MY MASTER, this short is recommended for reader's 18 and up.

MY MASTER is my favorite volume in the series. For a 40-paged serial, LRJones sure gave us some hardcore juicy bits not just about the evolution of Rebecca and Master's relationship but a peek on Master's more vulnerable side. Yum!

As I've mentioned in His Submissive, I have a feeling that Rebecca won't remain docile for long. Rebecca made a big leap in agreeing to be a sub and now her sexual needs are coming in conflict with her emotional one because the former is beyond fulfilled while the latter is leaving her empty and wanting. MY MASTER explored Rebecca's internal dilemmas and how her current arrangement with her Master isn't really cutting it anymore. At this point, they've been together for quite some time and have renewed their D/s contract several times. But as Rebecca has grown emotionally invested in her Master, it's only natural that she'd want more. She wants to own her Master not in terms of their kinky lifestyle but something more tangible and secure like being in an actual relationship with him and not just a contract. Obviously as her Master is broken, he doesn't have a full grasp of Rebecca's current emotional status so he tries seduction to win her back but Rebecca's not having it.

The scenes we enact together take me deeper and deeper into the places I know represent his internal hell, and yet I can't pull him back. Instead, he's pulling me inside that dark hole that is his escape.

I'm so proud of Rebecca for not standing down and asserting what she wants despite the risk of losing the man she loves. I love how she's starting to question things and demands to want more because she deserves it. I'm so happy that she's not as naive as I perceived her to be. She's no doormat and I was literally cheering for her on those scenes where she really wanted to say YES but instead said NO. MY MASTER is quite an emotional volume, it explored not just Rebecca's dilemma but her Master's dysfunctions as well. I feel like he wants to give her what she wants but he only knows how to be a Dom and has no clue on how to be a boyfriend. 

Let me also say that LRJones is so clever! I mean MOTHAFRACKIN' CLEVER! I'm sure I'll be picking up my jaw on the floor once the identity of Master is revealed but seriously, I have no clue who this person is! His identity is so closely guarded and I applaud LRJones for managing to keep this a secret for so long. Gah! So amazing and frustrating at the same time!

Anyway, Rebecca's story is drawing to a close and I can only speculate what happened to her. In If I Were You, I was thinking that she met an unfortunate end but now despite her Master's gruffness, I believe that he cares enough about her to protect Rebecca and care for her the way she deserves. I can only hope that she's just taking a break somewhere, getting her head straight as she's faced with the dilemma of surrendering herself, her being, to her Master and keep him happy or to stay true to herself and assert her own wants and needs in order to feel satisfied in their dysfunctional arrangement. We'll see...
