“UNRAVELED is without a doubt my absolute favorite in The Mastered Series…Knox it’s where it’s at!” ~ Under the Covers

I know everyone is completely in love with Ronin, and yes I love him too.  But I was ready for a change and beyond excited to be reading about Knox.  Sexy, alpha goodness Knox.  I was so intrigued about how Ms. James would handle his relationship with Shiori, since we’ve known she likes to play on the dominant side.  And I’m here to tell you that Lorelei James ROCKED it!

UNRAVELED is without a doubt my absolute favorite in The Mastered Series…Knox it’s where it’s at!  I love that man.  He’s such a powerful, alpha male and he gives himself completely to Shiori.  He cares for her.  He wants to protect her.  Deacon and all the others will have a hard time taking my Knox’s place.

Chemistry sizzles on and off the sheets between these two.  From their work performance to the bedroom (or other places).  The constant push and pull for control makes for a fun book because Shiori and Knox definitely kept me on my toes.  Kept me wanting more.

The emotional struggles they both had to overcome were the perfect touch to add substantial obstacles in their path to an HEA.

I know some people may be concerned about the fact that the hero is in the submissive position, but don’t let this fool you.  Knox is all alpha, all male, and everything we crave to read about.  His submission just gives him more power.  Lorelei James has managed to go into the world of BDSM in a new way, a new angle than what most authors tend to explore.  And it comes across really beautiful.  The connection between the characters in these moments goes beyond sex and Ms. James transfers that emotion to the reader.

I will stay here basking in the afterglow of reading this book.  And then a little while later I’ll start getting excited about the next books.  I can’t wait for Deacon’s book!  Bring it on!

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

I LOVE LOVE this series. I thought Knox and She-cat’s (lol) story was really good. I can’t wait for Molly and Deacon’s!
