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.
Review by: Kim
Once again Maya Banks proves why she is the queen of romance. Mastered is the beginning of a new series that will prove there isn't anything better than a man who figures out that it's okay to take something for himself and enjoy it. And for a woman to finally decide that she just may be pretty enough to keep the big bad boy happy.
Evangeline is so soft and quiet, almost shy. She's also got a strong sense of responsibility where her family is concerned. I love that about her. She just goes about her life doing what she needs too to take care of her family. Wasn't so happy with her low opinion about herself, it made her a little weak to me. And hopefully as the story continues we'll finally figure out why she feels like she does.
Maya Banks always has very strong, very masculine, very alpha men in her stories and she didn't disappoint with Drake Donovan. He's everything every alpha male is. But...is his business dealings even legal? Don't know if I agree with someone who walks on the criminal side of things. Except somehow it works in this book. The fact that Drake is a touch shady makes him even more yummy!
He exercises control in all aspects of his life. But when a small, sweet, innocent blond haired, blue eyed angel steps into his club and into his life; Drake finds himself giving in to her more than he has to any woman. And liking it too.
There's a whole cast of new characters...men. Each one more yummy than the one before. And each one is just as alpha. And just as mysterious.
This new series is going to be full of breath stealing, hot flash inducing heat and I can't wait to read more!
