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.

Shay’s Review

“You only have one job, my angel. Obey”

Evangeline has been humiliated in one of the worse ways by a guy. Her friend’s decide to seek revenge by having her show up at an exclusive club however, things didnt turn out the way she wanted. She is saved but unknowingly by Drake, the clubs owner. He is instantly attracted to her and knows he is not good enough but he wants her and he does everything in his power to possess her.

“I don’t deserve to walk on the same ground as you. But God help me, I wont give you up. I cant give you up”

She is just overwhelmed with him and all that he does but she cannot help but want him too. She takes a chance. She falls hard but she doesn’t know about his world and tries to fit in. But what will happen when she is put in a position where she has to see what his world is really about. Will she be able to handle it?

This is a good story. I was hooked from the get go but I felt at times there was too much information, I wanted more of the characters. I did think that they had alot of depth, just wanted more conversations. I did enjoyed the secondary characters and hope to hell we can get their story!

To save her, he had to betray her...

In Drake’s shadowy world, his enemies would exploit any weakness he had in order to bring him to his knees, and so he’s never allowed himself to care about anyone...never exhibited any vulnerability, and it made him a force to be reckoned with. Until Evangeline—his angel. A woman who slipped past his defenses like no one had ever managed. She was his to protect and ultimately, to do that, he had to do the unthinkable and drive the only good thing in his world away.

But he will stop at nothing to get her back...

Devastated and destroyed, Evangeline doesn’t know what made Drake turn on her in such a shocking manner. She only knows she’ll never be the same. He once freed her from all her inhibitions, only now she is a prisoner to never-ending pain. But when Drake finds her again, she realizes there is more to his world than she ever imagined, and she must decide if she can once more trust—and submit—to the man who holds her wounded heart in his hands. And he must convince her of just how far he’ll go to regain her love and forgiveness.

Shay’s Review

“Angel, you were-are- the only good thing in my life, and God help me but I couldn’t do the right thing and let you go. I had to have you. I needed you. I still need you.”

This is the conclusion to Evangeline and Drake’s story and it was a good one. You must read Mastered to understand fully what is going on. I didn’t think that Drake could screw up worse then was he did in Mastered but holy crap, yes he does. I mean I like get it but then don’t. I was kind of getting irritated with both characters. Drake makes some hasty decisions that I just couldn’t believe. I felt Evangeline wasn’t that strong of a character then what I wanted. She totally depended on him, which I can understand to a point but not fully. The saving grace for me with this story was the secondary characters. Silas, Maddox, Justice, Zander, the beloved bodyguards. Lord, they just did it for me. I am so super excited for Silas to be next. I fell in lust with him instantly and by the end I was full gaga over him. Cant wait to see what happens.
