At the end of Restraint, Katya fled back to her hometown, seeking solace from Ezra’s constant micromanaging while hiding from her true feelings over what had happened to her at the hands of the men she had grown to trust.

Holy mind fuck, Batman! This one is definitely one I thoroughly enjoyed. I can definitely see the Flowers in the Attic V.C. Andrews influence on Ms. Chilson. This continuation of Katya's BDSM journey is awesome.

Katya is now in the arms of her lovers. Her daughter is no longer a secret and Katya is learning more about BDSM. She's exploring her Domme side. She's learning how a submissive behaves as well as how to be a good Mistress from Dexter. While this is going on, her rapist, Ray Hunter is let

A amazing sequel to Restraint. I loved it and was so excited about how the author ended the book. I love Katy and the two Ezs! Erica Chilson is a awesome writer and can't wait to sink into her future books. I would recommend this book to all my ADULT friends :)

This second one was a really good story, a great continuation of the first. I was glad to see Aaron get settled with Kayla and for Cortez, Ezra, and Katya become more of a true trio. I thought Katya did amazingly well resisting Cortez and Ezra for so long based on their relationship status. It took long enough for them both to explain themselves! And I liked how Cortez and Katya would sort of work together to "manage" Ezra. I also liked that Katya embodied aspects of both Cortez and Ezra. And I ...more

If this is a genre that you enjoy, then this book will blow your mind away - just make sure you read Restraint first, or you will miss out on whole chunks of the story.

I never like to talk about the actual plot in a review, because that is why you want to read the book - and in the case of this series, the plot is so complex and intricate that I would never be able to do it justice. What I will tell you is that the writing i

By Erica Chilson

Well not long after finishing book 1 in the series I started with this book. I was lusting for more information about how the Trio would work out. And let me just say it is not how I expected. Instead of jumping straight into let’s all heal and do group hugs, we got to see real and sometimes ugly emotions. The book delivered in a big way oh how one would react in these cases instead of the fantasy of ok we worked it out and everything is all sunshine and rainbows now. I

Good Lord… this thing is sooooooo bad! The author misuses words, misspells words, some of the sentences literally make no sense, I mean… it's just… sooooo bad. Case in point: He cites incomparability as the reason for not marrying. Priceless. Here's another gem: I’m working from home for the unforeseeable future. Wow… Everyone sobs or whines constantly, everyone has tantrums & throws or breaks things, everyone is moody, everyone is insecure & jealous on a regular basis & these people black out a ...more

I REALLY had to think on this one before I could write the review. I’m still dumbfounded over some of the things that happened in this book and the realizations I had!

This book is as dark and twisted as the first one. In some ways it’s lighter but in other ways it’s much darker and twisted than Restraint. I’m having a hard time deciding where to begin. So, I guess it’s to the beginning I go.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

Katya is back in Dominion with her daughter Ava, living with Ezra and Cortez. The people of Dominion who are excessively rich, lacking in morals and pretty much think they can do whatever they like. They are nothing like Katya who is moral, hard working and independent.

Kat's struggle to fit in and feel accepted in Dominion and in Ezra's life, was the part of the story that I really connected with. It ripped my heart. Cortez,

--Review for updated/revised version April 2015--

Unleashed is the 2nd book in the series Mistress & Master of Restraint, it's the continuation of Katya Water's story and begins exactly where Restraint left off. If you enjoy a little BDSM with twist of mental manipulation, or straight up mind-f**kery - THIS SERIES IS FOR YOU!

Okay, I feel like I want to give this book three stars, but I liked it better than the first one (Erica Chilson- Restraint, which I gave four stars. So... yeah, I don't know.

First of all, I read this because "Restraint" just COULDN'T end where it did. For realz, I bought this one like 0.00001 seconds after I finished the first. And I'm glad I did, because it both continued and wrapped up the story pretty damn well.

I don't like summarizing books or writing spoilers in reviews. So, here's what I'v

This story picks up where Restraint leaves off. Kat has come to terms with her past, maybe. But she has Ezra and Cortez to help her trough it. Along with Ava, her daughter with Ezra and Arron, Kayla, Queen, Marcus and a little extra help from Dexter. She will learn who her real family is and what family means. Someone is sending hate letters, or one line notes, and she is trying to figure it out by herself but she is too emotional at any given time. But who wouldn't be. She was raped, had a chil ...more

This story is not for the faint of heart, This is an intense mindfuck worth reading!

I love Kat, Ezra, and Cort!
This story continues where Restraint left off. We get to see the love grow within the "three," it's beautifully twisted! :-)
Katya is training to be a Mistress by the SADIST Dexter. (Yummy)
To say Katya's initiation was H.O.T. is a understatement. WOW!
WE also find out who the Mistress and Masters are. Including the Master of the Universe, I was shocked and blown away. The events with this said MASTER, no words!

I absolutely loved Restraint and couldn't wait to follow the story of Katya, Ez, Cortez and extended family.

However this one just got a bit 'out there' for me. Masters of masters, the giving of each other to each other, and the entire family dynamics were just a bit too bizarre. (view spoiler)

The second story in the Katya Waters saga is just as intriguing and passionate as the first. One might assume that after the ending of Restraint that we're just following up to a happily every after, but with this group of people I don't think there's any such thing.

With an even deeper look inside each character and what makes them tick, along with a nasty mystery Unleashed pushes the boundaries of the mind, and reels you back in just as solidly as a cane across the back.

I guess the one thing I have to say is screw normal. Screw what other people think and live your life as you want. That's exactly what Ezra, Cort, and Kat do.

I LOVE LOVE this series. I can not wait to read more. Mmm...Dexter is next. Talk about yum!

I did call the Kat's stalker and "the Master of the Universe", but hey, it was fun watching Kat figure it out.

Can I be included in the sharing thing? Seriously. HAWT! Again I read this in one sitting the day after Restraint and I still wanted more.

Katya and Cortez and Ezra, Oh My! This book starts up where the last one ended and takes the reader on a wild twisted ride. There is more background on everyone's past and getting to know a little bit more about the other Mistresses and Masters of Restraint. Some parts had me cringing, some parts had me panting, and some parts had me shaking my head in disbelief. Just when I thought that I had everything figured out the story would take me by surprise.

Wow , Just Wow. Erica has done it again with Unleashed in the second book of the Master & Mistress of Restraint series.

Unleashed follows on from Restraint ( must read to understand book 2), Katya now finds herself and now her daughter back in Dominion after interference from Ezra. She is still coming to terms with her feelings about the two Ez'es in her life and what they both want, mostly her feeling and reactions to Ezra's manipulations.

As she tries to deal with Ezra, she decides to move forw

Honest to god Best Series Ever!! I loved this follow up to Restraint. Excellence at its best. Erica Chilson is absolutely amazing! Wow what an imagination. I wrote more on my review to have a look. Best books ever!
I loved how anything goes...what a sensually erotic book. My eyes were on fire and my face on flames from all the sexual acts but the author wrote everything so well that I couldn't stop. I needed to keep going to find out what happens. Simply amazing

obviously many of my initial objections were satisfied and relieved with a good amount of happily ever after in this one..

even though this book/series didn't capture me as much as others i have a feeling it will stick with me for quite awhile, i wasn't even as emotionally connected to it but i find myself thinking about the characters a Lot and actually dreamt about the characters and the story multiple times!

Erica Chilson does not write in the 3rd person, wanting her readers to be her characters. Therefore, writing a bio about herself, is uncomfortable in the extreme.

“My eyes glue to him in fascination as he cleans his flogger. He’s shirtless since the room is above comfortable temperature. I watch as a drop of sweat creates a path down his back, gliding around all those perfect striated muscles. The drop disappears beneath his low-slung, leather pants. A shiver rocks my body at the thought of it sliding down the crack of his bitable ass.
“Katya, snap your mouth shut, close the door, and have a seat,” Dexter commands and I listen.”
