ARC Review! Mastered 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.

Mastered is the first book in the newest series by Maya Banks and I am a huge fan of this author.  It’s is very hard on me to write this review because while I love the author, I wasn’t in love with Mastered by any means.  I didn’t love it but I didn’t hate it either.  It was somewhere in the middle for me and I am disappointed because of that.

Let me focus on what I did like first.  I love a good erotic BDSM book, the kinkier the better as long as it works for the book.  I love an alpha male who not only is confident in his own self, but protects the woman he considers his.  I love when a female character who has been broken is brought back up by a good man. Drake and Evangeline just worked well together and I liked them together.

So here is what I didn’t like about Mastered.  It at times dragged on, I got bored and would set my kindle down, go play on Facebook or Pinterest for a while then maybe watch TV and then picked it back up.  That rarely happens with a Maya Banks book for me so I don’t know if it was just me or if it was the book itself.  It was just missing that something that hooks you in from beginning to end.  I do want to read the next book though to see if it was a fluke that I didn’t love this like I had hoped.
