Review of Mastered (The Enforcers #1) by Maya Banks

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Breathless Trilogy comes the first novel in the Enforcers series—a bold new direction in erotic romance that explores the games men and women play, and the price they’re willing to pay for pleasure.

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.

Coming May 2016: The Enforcers Book II: Dominated

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

WOW, once again the amazing Maya Banks has created a book that scorches and sizzles with sexual innuendoes in her amazing first book, Mastered in the Enforcer series. The only thing wrong with this enthralling book is the cliffhanger!  The book engages and enthralls the reader to the point that when you read the last page you cannot believe that you will have to wait to find out what happens.  Evangeline and Drake’s story is filled with mystery, intrigue, hot alpha males that are protectors, while still being bad boys, that are really bad boys. This is a book that you will not want to miss!

Drake is a self made man, that built his empire from nothing.  Men fear him, women want him and everyone obeys him!  There are secrets in his past that haunt him and color the way he lives his life.  But there are also secrets in his daily life that if known could destroy him.  He can never show weakness, because those that want what he has, will stop at nothing to own it. Drake does not believe there is such a thing as love at first sight?  But when Evangeline walked into his club, he knew she was special and that she would be his. She is not like any woman he has ever met before.

When it comes to family, Evangeline loves unconditionally.  She is willing to sacrifice her own happiness for them and give of herself to meet their needs.  Evangeline is an innocent that does not fit into the world she finds herself in.  When she is betrayed by her boyfriend, she is heartbroken and her self-esteem hits an all time low.  Her roommates convince her to dress up and go to a club that he frequents to show him what he threw away.  Meeting the beautiful, sexy Drake Donovan is not what she expected to happen and when he powers into her life, nothing would ever be the same. Can she let down her walls and let him in?  Will he protect her heart or destroy it? What does Drake want from her?
If you are searching for a great read that will keep you reading and wanting more, look no more this is the book for you.  The characters are well developed and the storyline is provocative. It is a must have addition to your library.
