Masters at Arms begins the journey of three men, each on a quest for honor, acceptance, and to ease his unspoken pain. Their paths cross at one of the darkest points in their lives. As they try to come to terms with the aftermath–forging an unbreakable bond–will they ever truly become masters of their own fates? Or would fate become masters of them?

This book contains an introduction to the main characters of the Rescue Me series. We get a behind the scenes look into who the characters were before they started the BDSM club and their leading ladies. Each guy gets their own separate story leading up to their time serving together in the military and then connect back together when they retire from the military and start their club.

I really enjoyed reading their back stories. I’m not usually a fan on short stories but since this is a prequel to a series, I found myself really looking forward to the upcoming stories. I will be honest that the story that interests me the most is Adam and Karla but I still found the other stories entertaining.

The book starts with Adam in a bus station waiting for his departure. The young girl sitting across from him is clearly a runaway and the skeezy man harassing her is obviously a pimp.  Adam finally has enough of the guy terrorizing the young teenager and quickly gives him the boot and takes it upon himself to see the young girl home safely before checking into Camp Pendleton. However, the family want to thank him for bringing their troublesome daughter home and insists that he stay for dinner resulting in the two becoming pen-pals while he’s deployed.

The second story is Damian’s. He’s working a crappy job as a bus boy in a hotel when he hears a woman screaming bloody murder in one of the rooms. He acts quickly, breaks into the room and saves the damsel in distress. Only, he’s no idea what he just stumbled upon. You see, Savannah’s been abused and pimped out by her father since she was young. Damian whisks her away for a sex filled night, only to, unbeknownst to him, return her back to the hell from which she came. The whole scenario cost him his job, so he enlists in the Marines to escape his crappy life.

The last introduction goes to Marc. He was burned by his girlfriend/soon to be fiancee, when she slept with his older brother. His brother was in the Marines and was later killed in action. Marc is still guilt ridden that his last words to his brother were that of anger. So he decides to leave the family business behind and become a corpsman in hopes of saving men.

Obviously, all three of these men meet up while in the military, create bonds and open the club. Even though these are short stories I really enjoyed every single one of them. I was glues to the pages to find out what happened to them before joining the military. I personally cannot wait to read their individual full length stories. I really wish that Adam and Karla’s were the first one’s up but I guess I will have to wait for theirs because Marc’s is the first one up.

“What you have to do is find something or someone that will make your surviving worthwhile. Find a cause that moves you. Find a woman who needs you. Just fucking find something you can do to make the world a better place for at least one other person.” -Adam
