I feel like I should be addressing Cherise with Master because she really is a master storyteller. Each book in her Masters of the Shadowlands series gets better than the one before.

In BREAKING FREE, Master Nolan, the darkly seductive contractor finds a lovely submissive in Beth.

However, after two years of being abused by her sadist husband, Klyer Stanton, Beth finds it difficult to trust someone completely and with good reason! Upon her skin, Beth wears the trauma that has been dealt her way. Scars mar her body and Master Nolan can’t help but feel for her.

Out of all the books so far, Beth had the most distance to travel emotionally. She has her BDSM kink and nothing will ever change that, but with the abuse she has endured, it takes a careful hand like Master Nolan’s to coax the scared little rabbit.

This book is by far my favourite in the series so far. Master Nolan is a great Dom who puts the needs of his sub first and is so attentive to her needs that he already knows what she is feeling before Beth does. There is one particular scene where even before Beth can call out “yellow”, the warning signal to slow down, Nolan is already pulling back before those words leave her lips. This is why Master Nolan is the best Dom so far. I absolutely adore him.

Cherise does a fantastic job of developing this unbreakable bond between Beth and Nolan. I think this is the best part of the book. It’s the fact that Beth learns to trust Nolan in slow increments that makes this book so damn good! As you read, you can sense the subtle changes in Beth, how she learns to control her anxiety and fears, how she and Nolan talk about their relationship and feelings. I felt like I was watching Beth bloom into something beautiful and strong. Nolan was the main reason for that change.

There is also the added suspense subplot that picked up the pacing of this story and really made this story go from good to great! I always love some suspense with my BDSM reads and Cherise really delivers.

I’m reading LEAN ON ME next, which is Cullen’s story! It’s about time, I say.

About Cherise Sinclair

Having to wear glasses in elementary school can scar a person for life. Dubbed a nerd at an early age, Cherise Sinclair has been trying to live up to the stereotype ever since. And what better way than being an author?

Known for writing deeply emotional stories, the USA Today Bestselling Author has penned sixteen erotic romance novels, most with a BDSM theme. (Please do not mention the phrase mommy porn in her presence.) Her awards range from a National Leather Award to a Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice nomination to a GoodReads BDSM group award for best author of the year. Called an “ascendant erotica queen” by Rolling Stone Magazine, Cherise spends her days writing, supervised by a sadistic calico cat.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m a 26 year old obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I’m also a reviewer for FreshFiction.com. Over there, I’m also a columnist. I have a column called Into the Night that discusses the latest and greatest news in the Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy genre. I also work as a virtual assistant for authors.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, to New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and fashion or dreaming about boys and beaches. My love for all things David Gandy is well documented on the Internet and we’ll be getting married shortly. I’ll be sure to send you an invite to the wedding! ;P Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
