Series: Masters of the Shadowlands #2
Published by Loose ID
When they go for Beginner classes at Club Shadowlands, a fight with Buck leaves Kari regretting her decision to come even before the classes start. However, Master Dan is there to sort through the fight and lend a shoulder to Kari.
His caring and soothing voice comforts Kari and soon she finds herself in his arms, locked around her tightly. Cherise Sinclair does a fantastic job of making Kari’s initial fear come out naturally. If you’re interesting in reading some BDSM but are unsure of your comfort level, then I would recommend you read Sinclair’s work. She does a great job of easing a reader into wanting more in slow intervals and increasing the sexiness in increments so that it seems like a natural progression instead of a sex free-for-all.
I remember being surprised by the building of trust in Sinclair’s previous books. But reading DARK CITADEL, I knew she wouldn’t let me down. And wow, I just adore her ability to bring two people together- one unsure and scared about how sexy she should be and the other harbouring grief and loneliness after a recent loss. Sinclair hits it right on the spot. BDSM is about giving up your trust to someone else and Kari does that, completely and wholly. And it’s believable.
I’m dying for some Cullen loving, but I know I have a few more books to read before I get there. But I’m not complaining. If you love BDSM, then Sinclair is your girl. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then 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 planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
