Wow, this book was a nice surprise! I'm not going to write a plot summary because the publisher's description pretty much says it all. Well, Mark's secret isn't dark at all, but we all know how some publishers tend to be melodramatic sometimes...

Overall, this was very good for a short story. Mark and Chloe were very likable, the plot was interesting and not too complicated, and the love scenes were sexy, steamy and sweet. Yes, I said sweet, which could be strange considering the book's premise a

“You don’t ever have to be scared of me.” His deep voice was caught somewhere between sorrow and tenderness. “I’ll never, ever hurt you.”
I stumbled across this novella when I was on the Ellora’s Cave website, browsing through their Free Reads. The truth is that I wasn’t expecting much: I’d never heard of this author before and, not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but there must be some reason it’s free … right? However, the heroine appealed to me – shy, wallflower-type (I’m so predictable)
Pure fantasy, and an excellent one, too. I'm not sure I'd call it erotica -- maybe erotic-y? Anyway, just about perfect for a romance reader who craves a little hot and spicy, (and there's some sweet, too) with the heat level coming more from the exciting situation than from anything the characters actually do. It's a short, quick read but has everything a story needs, and how many free ebooks can you say that about. Will definitely look for this author again.

When Chloes twin sister Zoe asks her to swap places for the night for a business meeting she thinks that it will just be as an investement banker, that is however, until Zoe reveals a surprising secret, she is no investment banker but a dominatrix and she has a special client picked out, just for Chloe!

It is hard to review a book that is this short, this was a small novella, but what I did read I liked! Within the space of the story I thought you could see the pull between the two main character

This is my first read by Evangeline Anderson - and I only stumbled upon it because it was a free read available at Amazon.

It was only a short story but had a good measure of sex and storyline. Evangeline can definitely write a nice and hot sex scene.

I really enjoyed this. The story was good enough to have made into a full-length novel. Hot, but oh so sweet!

Chloe and Zoe are identical twins but that's about where it ends. Whereas Zoe is adventerous and living out loud, Chloe is a first grade teacher, who leaves a quiet and modest life. Zoe believes she is boring, so she concocts this scheme to get Chloe to change places with her. Zoe asks Chloe to fill in for at her job but she staunchly refuses but Zoe eventually wears her down and Chloe agrees. Until Zoe reveals to her twin exactly what she does for a living.

Chloe and Zoe may be twins, but they couldn't be more different. Zoe is outgoing, adventurous, lives a life of luxury and seems to have no problem finding men to be with. Chloe is shy, reserved, likes her humble lifestyle and her teaching job. She may not admit it out loud, but she's always felt invisible, living in her glamorous sister's shadow.

When Zoe asks her for a favor to meet with a client and pretend to be her, there is just one small problem – Zoe isn't an investment banker. She's a Do

What a surprisingly good, sexy, sweet, and short read!

The publisher blurb did a great job and letting readers know what they're in for in this short novella length story, so I'm not going to go into any recapping. One main thing I do want to point out is that readers may *assume* they're going to get a little BDSM with the disclosure of a domme, but you really don't. It's more like very light bondage. Instead, the newbie-seducers (aka. the hero and heroine on a blind-datish set up) almost take

Meh, more of a 2.5. I skimmed a lot, mostly because the whole premise made my skin crawl.

So ok, the best way to describe the premise is, you have a good twin/bad twin set-up. The bad twin keeps conning the good twin into switching places. You know... I'd move. To another city, maybe even another state. I dislike manipulative people and sister dear was v. manipulative.

She's also a dominatrix. Gets paid well to whip guys into shape. Conns sister into switching places (something that never works ou

So this was a short, hot story that I couldn't put down. The characters were great and well developed for such a short story. I loved the twin aspect and switching places. It was an interesting twist of events when Chloe found out what her sister did for a living and decided to help her all the same.

The sex scene was one of the hottest I've read in awhile. I love, love, loved every raw, sexy bit of it. I also enjoyed the daring new things Chloe tried and the caring way Ma

A simple favor turns into an unforgetable night.

Chloe is asked by her twin sister Zoe to switch with her. All she has to do is pretend to be her for this important client. The kicker is Zoe is a dominatrix and Chloe is a shy teacher who is about as opposite from her sister as can be.

Zoe gives her three rules to follow:
Stay in control,
never have sex with a client,
and never take off the mask

Well lets just say some rules are meant to be broken. There is a little Alpha male, a bit of bondage and

This was a VERY short erotic read. I gave it 4 stars though due to the "aww" factor. Erotica is what it is but for me, I need some heart or it just does'nt vibe. Zoe and Chloe are twins who could'nt be any more opposite in personality and life style. It's not until Zoe asks her sister for a favor, does Chloe realize jus how opposite they really are. Zoe's not in banking as sis always believed, she's a dominatrix and nursing a hurt ankle. There is a very special "client" Zoe can't risk losing so ...more

A bit far fetched but hell it's fantasy.

I don't want to give anything away because I thought the mask thing was going to go in a different direction.

This hero will burn your ears with all the dirty talk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A very short but very sweet and erotic tale!
This is a short erotic read. It was decent enough if not a little cheesy at times. It did have a mini plot but was mostly fluff. Very erotic! ;) The characters were well written, but since it was so short, there wasn't a lot of build up. I liked Mark and the ending was sweet!
This was really short, but it was still a good read. The intimate scenes were sexy as hell. I liked the ending, it worked well with the book. I would recommend.

Such a cute and sexy little book! It is quite short but I think it was a freebie (or either 99 c, I can't remember). It's a typical Anderson romance but I like typical Anderson romances.

english review:

For a short story (slightly longer than normal) "Masks" is not bad, quite the opposite, I liked the Story. "Masks" is erotic and romantic, just as I like it. The shy school teacher Chloe is persuaded by her twin sister to substitute her in her job, but not at a office job like Chloe assumed in the beginning, but as a dominatrix! Chloe reluctantly agrees and soon finds herself in a sexy leather outfit face to face to an attractive masked man, the three rules of her sister in

Chloe and Zoe are identical twins but, are total opposites. Zoe always stood out in school and got a lot of attention, while Chloe always stood in the shadows and wasn't as popular. Zoe decides to help her sister come out of her shell and asks Chloe if she can take her place at her job for one night. Chloe thinks that she is an investment banker until Zoe tells her that she is a Dominatrix and that the client is too important to lose.
Chloe finally decides to give in and her sister gives her 3 ru

(please, forgive any writing mistakes here)

A short story with some "kinkiness" (hello, 50 shades of Grey fans), with sisterly love, and a rainbow-flowers-and-butterflies happy ending.

This is the second story by Evangeline Anderson that I've read - the first one was Str8te boys, which I also enjoyed.

Chloe is sent by her twin sister to a kind of blind date with a man named Mark - read: Zoe, Chloe's sister, is a dominatrix, and pretends to be injured and asks her sister to see a "client".

When Chloe's twin sister Zoe asks her to swap places with her, she's hesitant. The last time they switched was in high school and it didn't turn out well for Chloe. Zoe has sprained her ankle and needs Chloe to pretend to be her with one of her new clients. The kicker ... Zoe isn't really the investment banker her family thinks she is. She's actually a dominatrix. After being assured she doesn't have to have sex with the guy and gets to wear a mask, Chloe agrees, although she's scared and nervou ...more

I know I recently did a review for another one of Anderson’s novel, but I was able to download this for free and it was a quick read.

I still don’t know how I feel about this novel. I felt like the sex scenes in Claimed were much hotter, but Masks didn’t lack heat. However, she jumped into bed with him so quickly that it was mind-boggling. I am not saying anything against anonymous sex, but it seemed out of character for her.

Despite being a short story (58 pages), it is a really really good erotica. We get to see their relationship develop, a little bit of drama, watch them get their HEA and steamy hot sex <3 And damn was the sex H.O.T!

"I'll spread your legs and fill you.
Pin you to the bed and ride you until you come all over my cock."

A little dramatized but Mark's secret wasn't really that dark. He deserves hugs, kisses and loads of love! Mark is very very yummy though, and such a dear. Despite not being a

So Zoe sets her twin up with a hot masked man who not only shows her the best sex she has ever had , but brings out the submissive in her she didnt know she was. Storyline was fast paced, short but hawt !!! Norty but nice !!! A definte recomended read for all who like a little bit of erotic read, with hot sensual sex, with an added storyline to boot.

“Since his back was to her front Chloe had to practically plaster herself against his wide back in order to unbutton his crisp dress shirt, but somehow she didn’t mind. From his low, masculine groan that her action had elicited, she assumed Mark didn’t mind either. His spicy, dangerous scent filled her head as she spread the shirt to find a smooth, muscular chest leading down to powerfully sculpted abs. She wondered what line of work Mark was in. Whatever it was, he certainly kept himself in shape.
“Are you enjoying yourself, Mistress?” His smart-ass tone threw her, breaking her concentration on his muscled chest.
“I’ll ask the questions,” Chloe snapped, deciding abruptly that it was time to move on. She still felt a definite lack of control in this situation and it made her nervous, shattering the fragile self-confidence she’d managed to build. But she couldn’t stop searching him now or he’d be the winner of this little confrontation.
She let her hands slide lower, past the waistband of his pants to the bulging crotch. Oh my God, is he for real? She hadn’t been with very many men—okay, two. She’d only been with two other men. But Mark more than measured up to any other guy in her experience. In fact, she could barely believe what she was feeling was real. It was a damn good thing rule number two was “never have sex with the client”. She was pretty sure she wouldn’t have been able to handle what Mark was packing.
“Uh, Mistress, that’s all me, not a toy.” Mark’s deep voice still held a hint of amusement though it was sounding rather strained now. “And you might want to think of it less as a ‘toy’ than a loaded gun. One that’s going to go off if you’re not careful.”
“Don’t wimp out on me now—you promised.” Zoe glared at her. “Now listen, I’m going to give you the three rules of being a dominatrix—follow them faithfully and you’ll be fine.” “Three rules?” Chloe was halfway out the door, wobbling crazily on the high boots and feeling more exposed than she could ever remember being in her entire life. “One,” Zoe said, counting them off on her long, scarlet-tipped fingers. “Don’t lose control of the encounter. You’re the boss and you better damn well let the client know it the minute he walks in the door.” “But how do I—?” Chloe protested. “Two,” Zoe continued relentlessly, cutting her off. “Don’t ever have sex with the client, no matter how tempted you are.” Chloe shuddered. “You don’t have to worry about me breaking that rule. But how—?” “Three.” And now Zoe was actually physically pushing her out the door. “Don’t take off the mask.” “Why not?” Chloe finally managed to get a word in edgewise, just as the door was almost closed in her face. Zoe peered at her through the crack in the door with an impatient frown. “Just don’t. The mask lends distance and gives you authority. If you take it off, you’ll be giving up your psychological advantage—giving him the upper hand. Getting too close. Remember, this is a professional encounter, not a romantic interlude. He’ll be wearing one too, by the way.” 0 likes
