Research. It was all in the name of research, or that's what Catarena keeps telling herself every time she meets Maverick online. In exchange for his knowledge of D/s relationships, Catarena willingly becomes his apt pupil, giving over her mind, body and soul to his commands.

Their relationship seems to be made in online heaven…until the webcam turns on, unveiling a famili

I've always been scared of the heavy BDSM scenario, so I was a bit wary when I started reading this story. Even though this book was recommended to me by a fellow reader who knows how wimpy I am when it comes to kinky sex scenes, I couldn't help experiencing some heart palpitations when I decided to give it a try. Now that I'm finished reading it, I'm still having heart palpitations... but they're the good kind. ;)

What a great book. Mild BDSM, Alpha male, strong heroine, and really really hot sex!! If those things appeal to you, get out your gloves and read this book.

Catarena is going to do it. She's going to write her erotic book...about BDSM. Now she just needs to do a little, OK a lot, of research since she's never actually done this...just thought about it alot.

Enter Maverick. He doesn't think about's just how he is, what he is. And he can't believe he's found the perfect woman for himself...i

"4.5 stars" Maverick's Black Cat was a seriously hot and steamy erotic romance with some very appealing elements. Even if I weren't married, I can't say that I would be too keen on having cyber-sex with a presumed stranger, but the authors certainly did a good job of avoiding the “ick” factor and making that part of the story a very attractive and sensual fantasy. It was also a great way to build some fabulous sexual tension. Once the hero and heroine realize they know ea

You never know who you might be talking to while chatting online. You could be cybering with a 6'5 Dark Hunter or a loser still living in his momma's basement. Or you might be engaging in cyber sex with the rich and handsome owner of your company. Catarena signs onto an online BDSM site as BlackCat, hoping to gather information on her new book. Disgusted by the online posters who keep pestering her with invitations for golden showers, BlackCat scurries away and hides in a private chat room that ...more

Cat wants to write a book and she researches the web on BDSM. She meets Maverick in a chat room. He offers to educate her on the life style as long as she does what he wants her to on the web. They have a relationship on the web until Cat finds out who he is. Maverick has no idea who Cat is and has to search for her.

I liked that Cat was very strong and knew what she wanted. She had no problems putting Maverick in his place when he crossed her comfort zone. I enjoyed this book. It had had romance
I really loved this book. I thought it was a great combination of those old Harlequin romance books with the dominating male, but with a feisty female and erotica. I loved how Maverick/Mason went all alpha male and already thought of Caterena as his. Very KA like with a BDSM theme.

In the beginning it had me interested, but it just got worse and worse. The characters was for the most part underdeveloped, Maverick was in every way not likable at all, I could not feel the romance-part at all and it just... wasn't worth it.
Catarina has been writing for years, after several rejections she has finally ound a niche that brings out the passionate writer in her, BDSM erotic. The only thing standing in Catarina's way is she knows very little about the subject, other than what she has read in books. Wanting to find the truth behind the mystery, Catarina finds herself a fetish chat room looking to research the subject further. After several unsuccessful attempts, she finds one person, known as Maverick, who is willing to ...more

2.75 stars, rounding up to 3 stars, since I didn't dnf. It was close, but I'm stubborn, I guess. Good premise- or I thought it was. The h, Catarena, works in the mailroom, at a company- I don't remember what they do or make (!!??) The H is Mason, the CEO (??!!) They meet in a chatroom for BDSM followers (or leaders- ??!!) Anyhow, Catarena is on line- she tells herself- for research for writing a book on bdsm. I won't say how they meet, since that may be the one secret that the book has-and that ...more

I love this book. I own it in paperback, HTML, and now Kindle--clearly I can't have too much of this book! I re-read it every so often because it's just that good. I was lucky and got to meet the authors in person a number of years ago, and they're just as hilarious as their characters.

The book is intense, but also hilarious. I'd have to say the one drawback to the book is the over-nastiness of Cat's supervisor, but that's quickly forgotten with the awesomeness of the other characters.

Clearly I

did't expect that I will like this but!!! here it goes 3.5 stars... nice read!!!

4.5 stars.

Holy freakin' moly Maverick's Black Cat was a hot read. Maverick/Mason isn't in the lifestyle but sure wants and knows how to dominate. Through ims and finally vid cam, he takes brat like BlackCat/Catarena at hand while offering her his knowledge about domination. My favorite line ever "You're not an option for me, Kitten. You're a must.".

This book is also on e-book from ellora's cave for those of you who don't want to pay 14 dollars for it. It was a good read, I must admitt though i was more into her friends story than hers but it was no less interesting. Contains some bondage and alot DOM & SUB interaction
I really enjoyed this read, what starts out as a little online research turns into something super hot! Lots of drama between the H/h!

I liked it 1st..... But Mason just started to turn me off ....

Mason/Maverick met Catarena/Blackcat on line and both seemed to hooked on each other and developed a quick cast of insta lust before you could blink twice and having once forever ago having been big into what was called "talkers" via "telnet" where all we did was go chat and make friends and more often or not ppl go off into private "rooms" talk about sex showing how lonely and horny they were ;) Where you ended up telling ppl things
10+++ stars!

This has got to be my favorite BDSM book of all time.

I'm in awe that more people don't know about it.

Mason and Catarena were such fun characters to follow. I loved how they met via the internet. I don't know what it is, but I love books that revolve around some kind of texting or internet relationship along with the physical.

Also, the idea that being dominant isn't a lifestyle "choice" but rather a way of life was very refreshing.

Interesting, well written erotica that features light BDSM. BDSM is outside of my regular wheelhouse when it comes to what I like to read about in romance or erotica, but this was just about the right right level for me.

I enjoyed the set up and execution of the romance. Cat & Mason meet online. She is doing research for a book she is writing on the BDSM lifestyle. The evolution of their online relationship from purely academic to sexual felt very natural.

The dialogue is what really lifts
I loved the sequel to this story (Friends With Benefits), but Maverick's Black Cat isn't quite the same.

Maverick is a dom and the CEO of a company. Catarena is a mail room employee at the company and a budding writer. She goes to a BDSM chat room to learn more about the lifestyle so that she can incorporate it in her book. Maverick and Cat hit it off. They start a cyber sexual relationship. Neither one is aware of how they are connected at work until one day Cat glimpses his face on the webcam.

I had been a bit wary of this book - the premise seemed a bit OTT. However, after reading this, I am so glad I gave this book a shot.

From page one, this book grabbed me. It kept me enthralled until the very end - thank you Maggie Casper and Lena Matthews! Most of all, thank you for introducing light BDSM and not using the C word on every page. While I'm desensitized to the word, it was refreshing to see that erotica and hot steamy scenes could be written without resorting to crude vulgarity - th

Ha! This was a fun, sexy read.

I liked both characters, even if Catarena seemed a little bit judgemental at the beginning and then Mason too much of a control freak bordering on psycho, hehehe... j/k, but yeah, he was intense and came off as douchy.

By the way, I'm thinking E.L. James might have taken some ideas out of this book, and I say this because this one was published in 2007: (view spoiler)

I really liked this book. Catarena had a real smart-mouth that had me laughing. She was just so sassy and quickly had Mason wrapped around her finger. However, this is why I only gave it 4 stars. I went into it thinking that I was going to get a real dominant male, but as much as he kept saying that he had to be in control, he wasn't. She was.

Some of the things that she said and did really had me looking forward to her getting her ass spanked, but it didn't happen. If you are worried about read

Most of the free books I get are really bad. They are usually novellas so they are short making the story feel rushed, unrealistic and annoying. However, this free book would have been worth buying (cheaply). If you are shy about reading BDSM then this book is not for you. However, if you can handle the spice, I thought the storyline was an interesting one. Writer trying to do some research for her book about BDSM finds someone online willing to "help" her. I found it written pretty well, for a ...more

I was a little scared when I realized that this book was about Dom/sub relationships and the initial pages did nothing to alleviate my concerns but I did keep reading. When the hero and heroine meet everything changes...the story acquires a depth that is unexpected and the heroine and hero are suddenly likable. I won't say anything else but I did like it and would recommend. The dom/sub thing is not as strong as I feared.

Okay. It was nothing much, really. A dominant jackass (though he had his finer moments) for a hero, an independent (and rather annoying toward the end and the progress of her relationship with the hero) heroine, lots of (rather improbable in the stamina department) sex and a tiny bit of story.

But I liked it. Go figure.

Being loved by four gorgeous daughters should be enough to make anybody feel blessed. Add to that a bit of challenge, a lot of fun and an undeniably close circle of friends and family and you'd be walking in her shoes.
