This is an anthology with 3 stories.
The first story Met Her Match was AWFUL. The hero was a sadistic bully, the heroine was a pain sl*t. He loved to give intense pain and she loved to get it. Yikes, If this was my first bdsm story, I would never read another.
I would give this book 1 star and that's generous.

The second story was Educating Evangeline. This was a paranormal shape shifting story. I couldn't get into it at all and it was just eh for me.
I would give it 3 stars.

Now the last book Simon...more
Cherise Sinclair's story get 4 1/2 stars, the other 2 stories get 3 stars.

I admit I only purchased this book because I needed another Cherise Sinclair fix. I am addicted to her Doms from Club Shadowlands and since I’m caught up on that series, I was on the hunt for a new Dom to love. I know it’s only a short story but it’s better than nothing and Ms. Sinclair knows how to write great stories.

All three stories in this anthology occur on the same night at Dark Haven during a Victorian era themed n...more

Just the Cherise Sinclair story

So... After finishing Master of the Mountain yesterday evening I just had to read Simon's novella. It didn't disappoint. I love these guys!

What I wanted to share was my feeling concerning the Dark Haven. After reading about the Shadowlands, the Dark Haven club seems so disorganised. Anyone can get in, not enough safeguards in place. I don't know how anyone could ever relax enough to "play" there. Still, there are a lot about BDSM that I don't understand.

I love this...more
H O T. I read this book for the third part which was written by my favorite BDSM author Cherise Sinclair. What a hot story! I loved that they were 40 and sexy as hell. With most BDSM and romance novels choosing innocent female leads in their twenties, it gives us gals in our early 30's something different and erotically refreshing to look forward to!

I read the first part by Sierra Cartwright and I gave it 3 stars. I didn't read the second part because I don't "do" paranormal.The third part was w...more

This anthology was very entertaining…and hot!! I squirmed through the entire read. For me, there is nothing sexier than a dominant man, and I had the pleasure of reading about three. All three stories were equally good, but my favorite was Simon Says: Mine. OMG!! Simon was one sexy mutha! I wanted him to spread ME on the table and just devour me in an all-you-can-eat buffet. So strong, intelligent, and caring, I’m glad Rona pulled her head out of her ass and snatched him up. Damn!! As I was sayi...more

3 Hot Doms and 3 Beautiful Submissives - what's not to like?

The most interesting part of the first story was the fact they were already partners. Mira and Torin trusted each other going in. It was everything else they had to work out.

Harte was an Alpha Male and an Alpha Wolf. The trick for him was to figure out how to combine the two with Eva.

Rona had to figure out just what she wanted. Was the secret to avoiding a bad relationship not limiting herself to a single man - even one like Simon?

Met Her Match by Sierra Cartwright

3.5 Stars-Good
I really enjoyed this story. There is nothing like a well written story and when you add that it’s part of a series I’m hooked. Though not long at 9 chapters it was enough and not rushed. I didn’t feel that I was missing anything by not reading the first book in the series which is again a testament to good writing.

Torin and Mira are two strong characters that really heated up these pages and the last shower scene was wet and wond...more
I gave to the book 4 stars but I rated every story separately!

“Simon Says: Mine” by Cherise Sinclair
5 stars

I will start with this novella because Cherise Sinclair is by far the best author in this genre! She really knows how to write perfect Doms, like Simon here.

The story is about Rona, who after her divorce is trying to learn new things and she doesn’t want a relationship. But, Simon...more
This review is for Cherise Sinclair's 'Simon Says' ONLY

I originally read this book back in January 2013 and I loved it, so much so I had to read it again despite having a pile of books sitting ready waiting to be read. I think I loved it even more this time around, Cherise is one of my favourite authors as her stories do not disappoint.

Toni (U.A.C.)
It was great to get another story from one of my favorite authors, Cherise Sinclair, and it was nice to find two new authors to chase down.
Cute, but way too short for me to get fully invested in these two...but Master Simon sure was yummy! :)
There are three stories in this compilation and I have mixed feelings which given an overall 3/5 stars.

Met Her Match (A Hawkeye Story) by Sierra Cartwright - I've not read books by Sierra Cartwright before. As this book goes, and I believe it's a short story part of a longer trilogy, it's more sex than story, but the story had me intrigued. Both main characters work for Hawkeye a security company hired to guard the elite. They have been partnered together and she wants more than a work partnersh...more
This is the anthology that introduced me to BDSM reads that had actual plots and enjoyable characters. It also added all three authors to my “Must find more by these authors immediately” list!

The Met Her Match story by Sierra Cartwright is related to her Hawkeye books – both the hero and heroine are employed by Hawkeye as security specialists. The dynamics of two partners establishing the parameters of their relationship – in and out of the BDSM world – is the driver for this story.

MET HER MATCH by Sierra Cartwright – 3 stars
This is my first venture into Sierra’s writing so I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed this story. MET HER MATCH is a book from Cartwright’s Hawkeye series. I haven’t read the others and I think that did put me at a disadvantage. Cartwright doesn’t really adequately explain what the Hawkeye series is, making it a little hard for new readers like me to really get with the story in that regard.
However, I did like her writin...more

Met Her Match (A Hawkeye Story) by Sierra Cartwright
Series: Hawkeye; Previous Book: Bend Me Over

Highly trained Mira Araceli can hold her own in the toughest parts of the world, but not, it seems, against her secret crush, Torin Carter. She'd fallen for her Hawkeye instructor years before, and to him, she'd been just another recruit; fresh, green, idealistic.

Torin, with his dark Iri...more
(Sierra Cartwright) I'm putting my thoughts on Master Torin and Mira's story in before I lose any details. I liked the erotic scenes. Very sexy and Torin was deliciously alpha. (spoiler comment coming!!) My only problem was that Torin's insistance on owning and punishing Mira when he had already turned her down and said No, was not right or fair. She was well within her rights to move on and pursue pleasure elsewhere. I can appreciate a Dom's inclination to own his sub and make the rules. But in...more

Met Her Match

Two Stars

I have to say that at the first introduction of Torin as our alpha male and lead Dom, I felt that tell tale shiver run up and down my spine. I have to say when I met his match, it all quickly fell flat.

Normally, I find that by the first intimate encounter and banter with the two leans my fingertips are itching with anticipation to skip to the end and see if these two work out. Unfortunately, I didn't even care. It didn't feel like a BDSM story to me. It fe...more
Doms of Dark Haven is a collection of 3 novellas about Club Haven, a BDSM club in the San Francisco area. The stories were well written and very entertaining to read. *fans self*

1. Met Her Match: A Hawkeye Story by Sierra Cartwright
Mira Araceli and Torin Carter are partners and operatives for Hawkeye. When Mira goes to Club Haven, Torin goes all alpha caveman to be her dom. These two had nice chemistry together and Mira kept Torin on his toes.

This was my first time reading this author and I will...more
This book is a short story/novella collection of BDSM stories that share the San Francisco club Dark Haven as either the primary setting or an important setting piece. As such it is sort of a shared universe that three authors play in. Those three authors are Sierra Cartwright, Belinda McBride and Cherise Sinclair. And as I nearly ALWAYS say when it comes to short story collections, it's uneven. Which is to be expected. I think it's very unrealistic to go into a book like this and expect all the...more
I bought this book for the Cherise Sinclair story, but am happy to have found a new author to read--Sierra Cartwright. I enjoyed her short story Met Her Match, which is part of the Hawkeye series, so I'll have to catch up with that series. (It reminded me a lot of Jaci Burton's Wild Riders series which I love.)

I felt that the second story, Educating Evangeline by Belinda McBride, tried to pack too much into a short story. It should have focused on just the romance or just the wolf pack dynamics,...more
my thoughts about ......
-Met Her Match (A Hawkeye Story) by Sierra Cartwright


- Educating Evangeline by Belinda McBride


- Simon Says: Mine by Cherise Sinclair

I didn't want to read a single word from the blurb.
There are three stories in this anthology: Met Her Match by Sierra Cartwright, Educating Evangeline by Belinda McBride and Simon Says: Mine by Cherise Sinclair.
All three take place or at least start at Dark Haven club at the same time, so we have characters from each see glimpses of scenes from the other two. They are not connected in any way.
I didn't like Met Her Match. I don't like the word 'slut', so it may be that.
The second story was a sur...more
All in all a good anthology. Each story offered a different genre in erotica (suspense, paranormal, romance) and offered a good intro to each authors work. At least I think so. I honestly did buy this for the third story, Simon Says, since I read the first Mountain Masters book and loved it. I'll read more of Belinda McBride's work, but I don't think I'll read more of Sierra Cartwright's. It's just a genre preference. Romantic suspense has yet to really grab my attention. I do wish McBride's con...more
Met Her Match 5 stars
When Mira approaches him to play and he turns her down she goes to Dark Haven to find someone who will. Torin yanks her out of her scene and proceeds to punish her and make her his. As working partners they have to figure out\o how to make it all work. Very hot, I'll look for more by this author.

Educating Evangeline 5 stars
As improbable as it is that she escapes from hunters into a BDSM club, which happens to have a Victorian theme night and she HAPPENS to be coming from a V...more

I was so glad to see Simon get his own story, and WHAT a story it was!

I love all the "Men on the Mountain", but Simon really is my favorite, I guess because he is older, and doesn't have to have a 20 something skinny woman, he has a woman that is a little older and a little rounder, and she is "teachable"! And boy does he teach her!

Cherise Sinclair is my new favorite author, not to mention my favorite genre!

I'm not really reviewing the other stories, just Cherise Sinclair's story. The other's didn't really interest me, but Master Simon's story was just as good as expected. My only regret was that it was a short story. You do see recurring characters from her Master of the Mountain novel and it's a good lead in to her upcoming novel about Jake. I'm so looking forward to that one!
Sierra Cartwright- Met Her Match 3.5 stars
Belinda McBride- Educating Evangelina- 3 stars
Simon Says: Mine- Cherise Sinclair- 5 stars

I have no idea how that rates overall but I will give it 4 stars because it has a Cherise Sinclair novella in there. Man, that woman can write. It is like all others are peons compared to what comes up with. HOT book. Loved Simon.

Shelves: bdsm
This was a pretty good anthology, I liked the 1st story, the 2nd story really didn't do a whole lot for me but the third story by Cherise Sinclair is the reason this book is getting 4 stars!! I loved Simon and Rona are great characters, I loved them right from the beginning, they are both older, have some life experience and to me that makes them a little more real!
This was great. Three stories all set in the club Dark Haven, all on the same night. Very cool. I especially loved the last story by Cherise Sinclair, Simon's story. He finally meets the sub of his dreams, the lovely Rona, and sets out to win her. Oh, and we also get to meet up with Logan and Jake again. I can't wait for Jake's story too.
Trader (RedHotBlueReads)
A very nice trio of stories. I enjoyed the story, Simon Says: Mine by Cherise Sinclair enough to make me want to read the rest of this Master of the Mountain series. They were just the right length to finish in a single night, perfect for when you want a read that is not-too-heavy, sexy, with a touch of romance and a dash of kink.
