Andrea wants to submit, but not to just any so-called Dom. He has to be tougher than the slum-bred bullies she grew up with. She’d given up finding a true Dom when her friend finagles her a place as a trainee in an exclusive BDSM club with the powerful Shadowlands Masters. Andrea’s thrilled...and terrified.
Forced to accept an unknown submissive into his carefully run trainee program, Master Cullen is furious. Not only is the young woman new to BDSM, but she’s unsuited to her role--armoured in leather like a Domme, she’s more liable to punch a Dom than kneel. He decides to push her right back out the door. But as he ruthlessly intimidates her, punishes her, then comforts her, his glimpses of the woman inside the emotional armour intrigue him and her utter surrender captures his heart.
Although Master Cullen is famous for his unfettered lifestyle, Andrea believes he might be interested in her, until she discovers he’s not just a bartender--he’s a cop. Maybe he’d overlook her past brush with the law, but when another trainee accuses her of stealing money, Andrea's sure she’s lost the Master she wanted with all her heart.
Andrea has been looking for a Dom for a long time, trying all the clubs but failing to find that special someone. Just when she is ready to give up her best friend gets her into the infamous Shadowlands BDSM club. As she begins her training to be a sub at the club she meets Master Cullen. He causes Andrea to start feeling things that she never has before. Has Andrea finally found the right Dom for her? Will she give herself over to him and realize that love is a two way street or will she fight it all and loose her chance at love?
I loved this book from beginning to end. Master Cullen is a wonderful Dom. He understands what a sub needs and how to give it to them. Andrea is a spirited and strong willed woman who finds herself fighting for love itself. The inner turmoil that Andrea goes through is a very strong read and the many things that happen to her in her past and even in the club make for an emotional story. I truly enjoyed the interaction between the two of these characters, each fighting their own demons and wishing for love. As we read about how Andrea and Cullen each fight their attraction the reader begins to hope that one of them will see reason and forget about their own personal rules and grab love by the horns.
Cherise Sinclair knows how to bring the reader into the world of her books and hold them there until the very end. In this book we are once again treated to the Masters at the Shadowlands club and as with each book in this series you are not only entertained but also taken for an emotional roller coaster ride. Many Doms and subs endear themselves to the reader in this series making the readers excited and anxiously awaiting the next story. I have yet to be disappointed by this author each and every story has been a great read. The stories are always well written and full of depth and emotion. Cherise Sinclair has quickly become one of a short list of automatic buys for this reader.
