by Maya Banks
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Breathless Trilogy comes the first novel in the Enforcers series—a bold new direction in erotic romance that explores the games men and women play, and the price they’re willing to pay for pleasure.
What he wants, he takes with no remorse or guilt.
She stood out in his club like a gem, unspoiled and untouched. A lamb among wolves, she clearly didn’t belong. Drawn to her innocence he watched as she was surrounded by men who saw what he did—but no one but him could touch her. He summoned her to his private quarters. He sensed her fear. He also recognized the desire in her eyes. And he knew she wouldn’t leave before he possessed her. She had no need to know his secrets. Not until he had her under his complete and utter control.
What he wants, she isn’t sure she can give him.
The moment he told her want he wanted, she couldn’t resist. Instinct told her to run, but her heart said stay and walk the fine line between pleasure and pain. Though she wasn’t sure she could ever completely surrender, the primal part of her wanted to try, even knowing this man could break her in ways she never imagined. Because once he possessed her, he owned her and it would be too late to turn back. She can only pray that he doesn’t destroy her in the end.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Mastered by Maya Banks (The Enforcers #1) 5 out of 5 stars
Warning! There is a huge cliffhanger at the end of this book!
It is also a D/s relationship with some very kinky sex.
Maya Banks is usually a must read author for me and she didn't disappoint with this one. My only complaint is that only half of the story is told in this book, with the other half, Dominated, coming in 2016.
In this book, Evangeline, is the beautiful, naive girl who gets sucked into a D/s relationship with Drake, the rich, powerful club owner. There are many emotional scenes, stemming from Evangeline's lack of self-esteem and experience, and of course plenty of sex, due to Drake's dominant demands. It isn't a book for the week of heart, although it is a love story, just not in the traditional sense.
So, if you like some BDSM with a kinky, emotional romance, then you will love this book!
