“Cherise Sinclair is the only BDSM author that I can count on to deliver an engrossing story.”
~ Under the Covers

I was really excited about reading this book. If you’re a fan of the Masters of the Shadowlands, then you know that she has built a great group of characters in this series. That being said, I would highly suggest reading the series in order. ALL the characters in the series so far are in this book and they do have considerable page time. I fear that if you aren’t familiar with them that you’ll really feel lost or not feel the connection enough, so I strongly urge you to read in order if you’re not caught up on this series.

Now that that is out of the way, I just want to say that I really enjoyed this book. From the very first page, I felt a deep connection with both the hero and heroine. Sinclair always creates great characters and I love how she really takes her time with developing them in each book. That is why when they make walk-on appearances throughout the series, it’s always thrilling for the reader.

The connection between Josie and Holt is very strong. The romance builds slowly, creating that trust that is so crucial to every relationship. That is explored greatly in this book and it was lovely to see it unfold in a believable manner.

Also, there are some neat updates with the past characters in the series that I was very happy to see so yes, it is definitely worth it to get into the series. Cherise Sinclair is the only BDSM author that I can count on to deliver an engrossing story.

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.

I’m excited about this one. There are so many shiny, new books this week that I have to set aside Holley Trent’s Afótama and fairy series that I’m currently reading. Oops. I should read a book for my Romance Roundabout challenge, too.
