Review ~ Mastered by Maya Banks ~ JMAC

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Surrender Trilogy and the Breathless Trilogy knows what makes readers hot. Now she turns it up in Mastered, the explosive first book in a new series of a desire too dangerous to resist.

What he wants, he takes with no remorse or guilt.

She stood out in his club like a gem, unspoiled and untouched. A lamb among wolves, she clearly didn’t belong. Drawn to her innocence he watched as she was surrounded by men who saw what he did—but no one but him could touch her. He summoned her to his private quarters. He sensed her fear. He also recognized the desire in her eyes. And he knew she wouldn’t leave before he possessed her. She had no need to know his secrets. Not until he had her under his complete and utter control.

What he wants, she isn’t sure she can give him.

The moment he told her want he wanted, she couldn’t resist. Instinct told her to run, but her heart said stay and walk the fine line between pleasure and pain. Though she wasn’t sure she could ever completely surrender, the primal part of her wanted to try, even knowing this man could break her in ways she never imagined. Because once he possessed her, he owned her and it would be too late to turn back. She can only pray that he doesn’t destroy her in the end.

Wow I freaking LOVED this book.  I have been a huge Maya Banks fan since I started actively reading 2 1/2 years ago.  Maya has remained one of my favorite authors of all time.  So when the opportunity came for me to review Mastered, I of course couldn't even think of turning it down.  

If you are familiar with any of Maya's work, then you already know she writes erotic romance.  What I love most is that she doesn't hold back.  She is descriptive, and god is her writing hot. 

Mastered was such a great book.  Drake is such a sexy alpha male dominant who takes what he wants, no questions asked.  He isn't used to girls who aren't already throwing themselves at him, so when Evangeline doesn't have the same reaction, Drake is more than intrigued.  She soon becomes someone he needs in his life.  

Though the couple sort of have an insta feel, I couldn't help but love them.  Drake and Evangeline together were just HOT.  They fit together.  Though they had a sub/dom relationship, it was so much more.  Mastered is not a book that is for the faint heart.  It is dirty, filthy, sexy, and delicious in all the right (or wrong) ways. I'll be honestly Maya is one of the only authors whose words literally make me blush.  The last 15% was just like a WTF moment.  My heart was just beating so fast and I honestly was so shocked.  Then BAM it was over.  If anyone knows me I hate cliffys, only because I am so impatient to wait for the other books.  So be warned, Mastered is a book with a cliffy, but it's oh so good.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves erotica books.  Maya is such a fabulous writer, I don't think I would ever be disappointed in anything she comes out with.  Do yourself a favor and read this sexy book.  It is definitely a well deserved 5 star read!
