Publisher Description

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Surrender Trilogy and the Breathless Trilogy knows what makes readers hot. Now she turns it up in Mastered, the explosive first book in a new series of a desire too dangerous to resist.
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.

Flawed but Good

The characters, particularly the female lead are one-dimensional and cardboard. I did not for one minute believe that the characters acted in a rational manner, and the storyline stretched credulity time and again. But so what! The book was an enjoyable read. I finished it and I am moving on to part two.

Not worth it

I have liked this authors books in the past but this was hard to get through. I got 90% done and just didn’t think reading the rest was worth my time. A lot of the inner dialogue for the female character is repeated. Very weak and whiny of a character. Wouldn’t recommend.

I didn't think I was going to like this new series based on some of the reviews but I was completely wrong. I got so engrossed and sucked in by Drake and Evangeline that I am anxious for the next book.
The dominating and ruthless businessman with the shy and doubtful waitress draws you in to see if a relationship is possible. Can he be what she needs? Can she be what he is missing? And, can true love be found? Typical scenario well done with an edge...or two.

I find the books of extreme BDSM interesting and engaging because I can't completely wrap my head around it. This particular story however, was well done in my opinion. To witness what I perceive as imbalance to come into a balance and then to be brought down again was mesmerizing.

I look forward to seeing where Drake and Evangeline story continues in the next installment.
