Haunted by a tragic accident that yanked his beloved wife from his side, Kristoffer Roar Larson has been going through the motions in life. But when he meets the dedicated surgeon and humanitarian, Pamela Jeffrey, he feels an undeniable connection to her, stirring feelings he’d buried long ago. After encountering her in a compromising position on a tour of a BDSM academy, he realizes there's more to her than meets the eye. Fascinated by her assertive alpha personality coupled with her desire to submit and serve, Pamela intrigues him.
As Pamela shines light once more into the dark corners of his life, Kristoffer finds himself struggling between remaining in his safe and lonely world or emotionally opening himself up to a vibrant woman, who asks for nothing more than he’s able to give. Guiding her in mind-training exercises to prepare her for some future Dom, Kristoffer finds his body awakening as well. Will Kristoffer be able to close the door to his past and open his heart to the ginger-haired sprite who makes him question everything he once believed?
ROAR is a standalone novel that has some familiar secondary characters from Rescue Me Saga, but the main characters are new. You don’t have to read the series to fully enjoy this book.

5 Star Review Roar by Kallypso Masters
This is a stand-alone and every book I have read by Kallypso Masters has touched my soul in some way or another; this was no different. The way she layers the storylines is amazing. This book was phenomenal; I absolutely loved it from the first page to the last page.
ROAR is a story filled with angst, heartbreak, friendship and the growth of a deep and committed love; one that made my heart pound at times. This book just flows on so many levels; it is hard to do it justice. I felt that I was on an emotional roller-coaster whilst reading this book. There was so much happening in the book I don’t quite know where to start. I often wonder how Ms. Masters comes up with the storylines for her books; each book just seems to get better and better.
From early snippets I read, I was fairly certain that I would fall for Kristoffer Roar Larson; how hard I fell was the only real surprise. He comes very close to being my favourite of all Ms. Masters leading men and that is saying something.
This was one of the best books I have read. One of the things that I love about Kallypso Masters is that her characters are never one dimensional, there are always so many layers and Kristoffer and Pamela were no exception. Each layer is peeled away, just like an onion. I always knew I would love Kristoffer but Pamela; she really came into her own and surprised me with her adaptability and her unswerving devotion and love. The vulnerability that both Kristoffer and Pamela showed was at times a heart wrenching.
Have you ever anticipated a book so much that you were afraid to start reading it? That’s what happened to me with ROAR, I knew if I started I wouldn’t stop and then where would I be? Exactly where I am now - suffering withdrawal yet again and one heck of a book hangover.
I enjoyed the BDSM scenes thoroughly, after all it is one of my favourite genres and I am impressed by how much Kallypso Master’s researches the subjects covered in her books; it is these details that make all her books so very special and make them stand out.
ROAR made me laugh and cry; my heart broke not only for Kristoffer and Pamela but also for Tori. I did feel at times that the writing was a tad stilted, but I am guessing that that was intentional and more the way of Kristoffer; it in no way detracted from my enjoyment of the book.
The relationship between Kristoffer and Pamela, as well as Roar and Sprite was built from a deep and abiding trust and friendship; to me a perfect fit both in and out of the BDSM lifestyle, it was obvious that they share a deep love for one another.
Pamela was able to do what Kristoffer and his cousin Gunnar thought would never happen, she brought Kristoffer/Roar back to life and never have I cheered for a happily ever after as I did for these two.
This is one book that I highly recommend you purchase and read as soon as you can. Be prepared though for one amazing read that will leave you reeling.
