Mastered by Maya Banks review

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 thoughts:  Evangeline has just been dumped and humiliated by her boyfriend. To make matters worse he does all this after taking her virginity. One of her friends and roommates gives her VIP ticket to Impulse, over to Evangeline.  She immediately feels out of place when her ex shows up and tries to humiliated her more.

Drake the owner has his men step in and bring her to him. He wants her to be with him as his submissive.  She is naive about the world and what happens. She meets his partners one by one and realizes they try and help her along with Drake.  He makes sure she is well clothed and has nice Jewelry.

Evangeline tries to show Drake she just wants him she doesn’t care about the Jewelry or the clothes.  He starts to noticed and starts to change a bit.

The story does have a cliffhanger but the author does a a great job with gripping the reader to turn the pages you will want to have the next book coming immediately after to read.  I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

A great start to a new series that I for one am looking forward to continue reading.
