ARC REVIEW: Mastered (The Enforcers, #1) by Maya Bank

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.

Mastered is the first book in The Enforcer series and it's a mix of entertainment, sexy, hot and suspenseful. Did I mention, hot?

Evangeline is a nice girl from a small town, who moved to NY to help support her parents. So Evangeline's life is all about work with hardly any social life. So when she is humiliated by her jerk of a boyfriend, who dumped her right after she gave him her virginity, she decides to take a chance (with the push of her friends) to live wild and prove to the ex what he is missing. Evangeline ends VIP style at the exclusive club where she meets the handsome and mysterious Drake Donovan.

Drake Donovan is your typical dominant and controlling alpha male. And sexy! His life is all about order. So when Evangeline catches his eye at the club, he is immediatly drawn to her and wants to claim her. Ok, here I had an issue with the storiy, he is so demanding that she ends up moving into him place and financially supports her. And has her watch all the time. Hello? Crazy control much?

Their relationship is instant and a little too fast for me. Evangeline is just one big push-over. Don't get me wrong, I love a hot, powerful, controlling male character, but he needs to have a woman who is willing to submit, but has a bit of sass and can stand on her own. For me, Evangeline wasn't that. 

Mastered will leave you hanging, so just beware if you aren't a fan of cliffhangers. But overall it's a entertaining read and looking forward on how their story will play out.
