Audio Review Tour: The Master Will Appear by L.A. Witt (Giveaway)

Length: 12hrs 59mins

Narrated By: Michael Ferraiuolo


Dr. Mikhail "Misha" Budnikov takes one look at fellow fencer Ryan O'Connor and instantly knows his type. The undisciplined hothead is all ego with no finesse and even less control. In short, Misha's pet peeves personified. To put the arrogant kid in check, Misha challenges him to a sparring match, which he predictably wins.

Not so predictably, Ryan asks him to be a mentor and show him how to fence. Startled by the moment of humility, Misha agrees.

What begins as fencing lessons becomes something much hotter, and before they know it, Misha is giving Ryan an entirely different kind of education. Dominance, submission, pain, pleasure-at the hands of an older, experienced man, a whole new world is opening up for Ryan.

As the trust deepens and their bond strengthens, though, Ryan retreats because that sham called love left him jaded long ago. Cynical beyond his years, he's not letting his guard down, least of all for a thrice-divorced man twice his age.

Now Misha has to find a way to crack through those defenses...or accept defeat and walk away from the submissive who might just be the love of his life.

4 stars 

I do not listen to many audiobooks, so I do not have many to compare to but I really enjoyed this book and the narrator! The narrator did a great job of channeling both characters and each of their differences. While it is easy to differentiate between the two MCs because Misha has a Russian accent, there are so many personality differences that are perfectly displayed in the narration.

There is a lot of character growth from Ryan from the first time we meet him until the end of the book. His arrogance that we first see from him really does not ring true at all to his personality. Little by little, we learn about Ryan's background and where he gets his insecurities from and then we see those unfold throughout the book. I loved sassy Misha and once him and Ryan get together more, we see his sweet side which I also really liked. There is obviously a big age gap between these two main characters and I think Ryan really needed someone like Misha, who was older and more mature. Misha was the perfect person to help Ryan change his mind about love and relationships.

This book was really well paced and for the most part, this was a pretty relaxed book. There is no insta-love and not much angst but this book had so much depth. There are many aspects to Ryan and Misha's relationship from the fencing to the D/s that are covered well in this book. Overall, this was a solid story that ended perfectly for me!

About The Author

L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who has finally been released from the purgatorial corn maze of Omaha, Nebraska, and now spends her time on the southwestern coast of Spain. In between wondering how she didn’t lose her mind in Omaha, she explores the country with her husband, several clairvoyant hamsters, and an ever-growing herd of rabid plot bunnies. She also has substantially more time on her hands these days, as she has recruited a small army of mercenaries to search South America for her nemesis, romance author Lauren Gallagher, but don’t tell Lauren. And definitely don’t tell Lori A. Witt or Ann Gallagher. Neither of those twits can keep their mouths shut…
