“With each book in the The Masters of the Shadowlands series, Sinclair brings better passion and romance. It’s definitely one of my all-time favorites in the genre.” ~ Under the Covers

There’s no better place to be than back at the Shadowlands. SERVICING THE TARGET is a book that I’ve been looking forward to since Mistress Anne stepped into one of the scenes in the previous books. She carries so much power and femininity that you can’t help but feel drawn to her. I was very much looking forward to see how Sinclair would portray her since she is a Domme who also enjoys administering pain.

The hero, Ben Heugan, however is someone we don’t know too much about. Ben is the Shadowlands guard dog. While he has the confidence of Master Z, Anne is a little more wary of him. For one, she is attracted to him but Ben has no interest in kink.

Or so she thinks.

He has called himself “vanilla” but when they share one scene together, it’s clear that Ben does like a little something extra with his sex.

What was different about this book was while I thought Sinclair would write a typical Domme story, she did something interesting with Anne. She showcased both her hardcore, badass side OUTSIDE of the Shadowlands and in particular, with her day job and displayed a much “softer” side to her Domme in the actual sex scenes. This was interesting because we don’t really see the characters outside of the Shadowlands too often any more. And also, I quite liked the juxtaposition that Sinclair created with Anne’s character. It was a nice surprise, something different that set her apart from the other Domme stories I’ve read. And what’s even more unique is that as Anne develops feelings for her subs, she no longer feels the need to hurt them. Once she cares about them, the aggression fades.

In addition to a great romance, Sinclair also gives her loyal readers some updates on previous characters. This time we get to see some beautiful life moments for Master Z and Jessica. It’s all very beautiful and inspiring, which goes to show you just how talent Sinclair is as a writer. She’s capable of writing intense BDSM but she can write really touching, intimate moments as well. I think that’s why this series has done so well. Within these ten books in the series, a lot of these characters have grown and continue to grow with each book.

With each book in the The Masters of the Shadowlands series, Sinclair brings better passion and romance. It’s definitely one of my all-time favorites in the genre.

I’m an 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 write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

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!
