Rezension zu "Master of One" von Jaida Jones
I had to read one book from my Fairyloot boxes and I picked this one, but didn’t have high expectations because I heard so many disappointed opinions. But this book surprised me - maybe it was even better because of my low expectations.
It’s true - the plot is very slow, but I didn’t mind, because it helps the character development. If you are looking for a book to read in one sitting, this is not it. But if you like deeper characters and slow burn gay romance, this is your story.
I read 100 pages a day and this was the perfect pace. The plot unfolds slowly, but you get to enjoy each different character with their own POV (again - slows the story down a bit). I enjoyed the POV of Rags, the thief, the most. He has kind of a dry sense of humor which is my favorite one and I liked to see him struggle in his own way with forming bonds and finding real friends.
The love interest is not what you would expect, but is a very special person with sensibility and honesty. I’m not gonna tell you more - get to know this someone yourself by reading this book. The other characters are all very different, but unique. After reading half of the book I felt like I knew everybody very well, their fears, strengths and weaknesses.
Once I knew and loved the characters the plot evolved more and I didn’t like to put the book down for studying (unfortunately I still had to). I’m not quite sure, wether I am happy with the ending, because it seems unfinished but is apparently a standalone.
I enjoyed reading this book a lot even though it had some minor flaws.
