Mastered (The Enforcers #1) by Maya Banks


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.




My Review:

I don't understand. .. I REALLY don't understand.

How have so many authors that write Erotica (Good Erotica mind you) - especially Dom/Sub /BDSM books cross their understanding of the topic into something that turns a deeply passionate relationship that has nothing to do with abusive control into a story about a relationship that involves abusive control?

The manipulation and stupidity that's written into the characters and the relationship and sexual involvements from a fabulous writer who understands passion on a high level in her other books totally dropped the ball and wrote a 50 Shades of Grey.

What the heck happened here?
