Review ~ Her Web Master by Normandie Alleman

Her Web Master
ebook received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: November 11th 2015

Publisher: Self-published

An online connection.
Masked by anonymity.
No cameras. No pictures.
Curiosity ignited to intrigue.

I thought I knew what I was getting into, but had no idea how far we would go...

My intention was to test the waters, dip my toe in the wading pool. Instead I surrendered to the world of seduction and submission as he submerged me--body, mind, and soul--into an ocean of eroticism. 

Emails, texts, and hidden identities, were one thing. But now, coming face-to-face with the mystery man, the star of my fantasies, both terrifies and completely thrills me. If all goes according to plan, he will intensify the exquisite bond we share by transporting me to that glorious intersection between agony and ecstasy. If not, everything we've built will come crashing down around us, destroying my dreams in the process.

Either way, there is no going back. Because I want more. Much more.
He always says, "For every ounce of pleasure, a price must be paid."

And I am going to pay...

Warning: If you’re not a fan of dirty talk or dominant alpha males, “Her Web Master” may not be for you, but if you're looking for a filthy online boyfriend who will make your toes curl, meet Sophie’s mysterious Dom.

My Opinion

It was the cover that pulled me to this book and it sounded like a hot read. I shouldn't have requested it because of my current backlog of ARCs, but I couldn't resist. Then, I couldn't resist starting it straight away.

Her Webmaster was an unusual read in that most of the book takes place online. The characters only meet twice in the entire book and most conversations are held through emails or phone calls. It made for a different experience while reading since have haven't come across this level of cybering before.

For this reason the book has split my opinion. It was a mixture of hot but also slightly repetitive and dry. I liked it at the start. It was different and incredibly hot. The dirty talk and orders were well written, and so were Sophie's reactions to them. The control MC had was believable and easily felt, even via the messages. When they moved on to phone calls it became even more apparent.

However, there was only so long I could read it before I started to feel the book was become repetitive and needed a change of pace. I kept wanting them to meet and develop a real relationship. For me this part came too late on in the story. When it arrived it was great and I just wanted it to continue. Personally, there is only so much you can create with emails. Since there's no intonation, actions, or reactions on both sides it was hard to form a connection with the characters. I could understand Sophie, but I couldn't root for their relationship.

Overall, this book started off well, but I think it needs to be paced better. It has a unique concept, and I'm still undecided on whether it worked. Either way, the majority of the book was hot so if you're looking for a dirty-talking Dom this may be for you.
