Publisher's Summary

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.

I'd give this 10 stars if I could.

The Master Will Appear is an audiobook that I could listen to over and over again, if only I had time and fewer books to read/listen to. Michael Ferriauolo's performance is nothing short of outstanding. He does so many difference voices for this story that at times I would have sworn there was more than one narrator.

Please read the synopsis/summary/blurb as it describes the story much more concisely than I could. The Master Will Appear has several different tropes within it.

• It's an age-gap story but I didn't feel like that was dwelled on too much; so if you're not a fan of the age-gap trope don't let it scare you off.

• It's also sort of a teacher/student story but not the forbidden type as Ryan is not Mikhail's school student.

• It's also a BDSM story. After Mikhail begins giving Ryan fencing lessons he realizes that Ryan might just be a perfect submissive for him.

This story is so hot and Michael's performance so stunning that I only stopped listening the same day I started it because I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer – and not because his voice was putting me to sleep. The next day I had to force myself not to start the book up again until evening because I knew once I started it I wouldn't get anything else done. Some books I can listen to while doing other mundane tasks around the house but not this one. The Master Will Appear captured all of my attention and I couldn't even think about doing anything else at the same time.

If you enjoy any of the tropes I mentioned above, and like M/M stories, you have to listen to this one. The writing is fantastic and the audio performance absolutely divine. Michael Ferriauolo is now tied for first place as my favorite audiobook performer.

What an amazing performance

I loved this audio. I simply loved everything and every minute of it. It was hot as sin, it was perfectly performed, it was so enthralling, and I was completely enraptured from the beginning until the end. This is saying A LOT because 1) I usually do not like age-differences, 2) I usually can take or leave BDSM, and 3) this was a new narrator for me. Lesson learned? Take a chance, step outside your bubble and expand your comfort zone, and give a new-to-you narrator a chance. I am so glad I grabbed this audio. It was everything I loved and it was performed masterfully.

Okay, so now that you know that I loved it. Why? Well, for starters, it has so many nooks and crannies where all the goodness inside people could hide. Especially those who originally come across as arrogant. Both Ryan and Misha (Mikhail) have baggage, Ryan much more than Misha, but together they work through those nooks and crannies together. It didn’t start out that way, but once the “relationship” began, it all slowly worked its way to the surface. Ryan needed Misha as much as Misha needed Ryan. But they have to work hard for it and since this audio is 13 hours long, we get there one step (literally) at a time. Worth every minute.

Another thing I enjoyed was the fencing. I think that was what drew me to the story in the first place. I like sports romances, and I tend to go for the footballer, but fencing is classy and it called to me. I learned a bit, and I found myself fully invested in the lessons Ryan was receiving from Mikhail. Fencing is what brought them together, BDSM and love is what kept them together. Seriously, I am not doing this audio review any just, but trust me, Michael Ferraiuolo does a fabulous job with Misha’s Russian accent, and Ryan’s upper crust college boy attitude and personality. These two were performed so well that I had not one issue with the age gap nor the submission; if anything, it made the story that much better, and definitely that much hotter.

So much love!

Where does The Master Will Appear rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I loved every second of this book. I fell in love with the Ryan and Misha and the way their relationship developed and grew. I know it's a book I will go back to again which is a compliment from me because I rarely visit books twice.

Have you listened to any of Michael Ferraiuolo’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Michael Ferraiuolo's portrayal of the characters was really wonderful and brought the book to life. I have listened to books by him before and he is among my favourite narrators!

Great Narration but book spoilt by too much sex.<br />

Too many sex scenes. They detract from the credibility of the story. Otherwise an interesting story about BDSM.
