Warning: Erica Chilson is revising/rewriting/restructuring/editing/formatting the Mistress & Master of Restraint Series in its entirety for release into Print. The entire series needs to be read in order. Restraint/Unleashed/Dexter/Dalton/Jaded.

So this is how Queen came to be. I really liked this one. I've liked Regina on and off. In this one, holy shitsticks! Ade and Whitt's father is a complete rapist asshat! I'm sucked this story down in a few hours because I was riveted. Learning about Regina as a child is illuminating. Seeing how Grant, Ade and Whitt interact with their father is very disturbing.

I love how Ms. Chilson builds her characters here. As she reveals more about parts about their life, it's distressing and shows how they

Before Queen was Queen there was Regina Regal. An extremely intelligent girl that lives in poverty and takes care of her dying mother. I found the back story of Queen very interesting. This book shows how strong of a woman Queen/Regina is. I can't wait to see more of Queen's story and how her story interplay's with the Masters. The emotional roller coaster ride continues in this book. At times my head was spinning. This book did not disappoint. Like I said in my review of Restraint if you are no ...more

I'm not one to use gifs or pictures in my reviews but this one definitely rates one. This is me when I finished reading Jaded! I was floored, dumbfounded, gobsmacked, and left with my mouth hanging open. On the inside I was screaming, but on the outside I was well....


This book does so many things. It sheds light on others involved in this whole sordid mess they call life. It give me compassion for those I previously had none. It sheds light on so many things and it leaves you reeling.

The moment you have to write a review, but know there are no words to get what you are feeling about the book down, or your head is so shook up that the words you say will be inadequate. This is what I'm dealing with in writing a review for Jaded.

Regina Regal is strong. A woman who will not let herself be overpowered or taken over by the Founding families of Dominion. Oh she bends because at 18 she is dependent on scholarships they have fingers in , jobs they oversee, but she never breaks. She w

Wow! What a journey. The first part of Regina's story starts with Jaded. We meet Regina. Regina is attending Hillbrook Academy with the children of Dominion's elite on a scholarship. At home she is dirt poor and looking after her dying mother. He life changes forever at the hands of the Whittenhowers.

I went through so many emotions reading Jaded. I related to Queen and connected to her completely. I felt anger and frustration, especially during the first half of this book. Jaded took me though s

I really suck at writing reviews for Chilson's books. I absolutely love her writing, yet I find it difficult to review her books because the secrets, lies, and suspense make it far too easy to reveal a spoiler.

In the case of Jaded, I had the opportunity to beta read the updated version and it was excellent. The author has tightened the storyline up considerably, cleared up confusion from its previous release and series threads, and added more foreshadowing so that those who read the original re

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is a spoiler-free review btw!

I've been looking forward to hearing Queen's story since starting this series, and Damn! It did not disappoint! I've loved her character since meeting her early in the series and I love her even more after finishing Jaded.

Jaded goes through the background of Regina Regal's life, from her final year of high school and early years of college. Regina is a strong woman, but she is put through hell in

Now I lay me down to sleep and pray the lord I dream of Queen tonight!

Queen’s story truly is all consuming. Her story is like coffee for me I could not drink it up fast enough. Queen/Regina is a strong character and one that is so well written by Erica Chilson. Often times when an author pens a strong female character they come across as a BITCH but Queen doesn’t! Queen is a character like the rest of this large cast of misfits that has a dark past but aside from crying woe is me this woman sets
This was a 5 star read for me right up until the last 10%. I felt there was way too much packed into the ending. I love that Erica's books are fast paced but it was all a bit too much to digest, given everything that happened prior to that.

Roman, Grant, Daniel, Ade, Kris, Fate, Faith, Ez, Cort, Whitt & Niel, Ella......I guess the next book could go in any direction!

I need time to digest what I just read, so will take a breather before diving into the next book. There is no doubt that I will as

... I don't know what to say... this book, to me, is not like the others in this series. it is just as amazing and awesome, but I feel like there is more...feels? to this book than the others. maybe because its Queens beginning or maybe its just the writing. what I do know is that I had an easier time connecting to the characters in this story and they will forever be imprinted in my mind.

I seriously love Erica Chilson's books! I love the strong characters she has developed. Delving into Queen's past was heartbreaking. The entire world Erica has created is beautiful, yet some of the antagonists in the stories will piss you off at times. But, that is just good writing! :) I love that we are seeing a different side to some characters that I know for myself I did not like in the earlier Restraint books. I like that it shows that things aren't always as they seem and you shouldn't ju ...more

If you are a fan of the Mistress & Master of Restraint series, then Jaded is an absolute must read. Regina's story is one of strength and overcoming adversity. I was fascinated with how she was tied to the other characters in series, and all of my questions of how and why were answered. I can't wait to start Queened to see what happens next in Regina's story. ...more

Just when I think I have this series figured out, I am thrown yet again! Everything I had come to know and love about these characters, has been completely shattered! Erica is a master storyteller! Regina's story was absolutely heartbreaking. I hope that she finds the peace and revenge that she deserves. I can't wait to start the next book!!

Bawled my eyes out. First 40% I was a mess. Then it got better until the last 5% or so.

Received SO much valuable information though and I look into the previous books with a whole new light. I see stuff playing out in my head so much more clearly. Amazing. I can not wait to see what's to come in the future.

Erica Chilson, you are insane and I forkin' love it. I can not get enough.

In this installment we get the back story on Regina also known as Queen. We get to understand how and why she became the way that she is today. Without posting any spoilers I will say that if I had to go through what she went through I would become what others deem as heatless also

I can't get enough of this series. I was contemplating on reading book 5-6-7 so glad I did. You get to see some of the back story on everyone and peaces of the puzzle start to fall together.

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.

“What do we have here?” Grant slurs at me. He seems different and it raises flags in my mind. His fingers wrap around a section of my hair and it scares me. His face is flushed red and his eyes are glassy and bright. I can smell the smoky scent of whiskey or scotch rolling off his tongue as he speaks and breathes heavily.
“I’m lost and I need a ride home.” My voice wavers as I speak and I hate it. I fist my hands in the hem of my blazer.
“I’ll get Albert for you, but first spend some time with me,” he slurs again, sounding like his tongue is too large for his mouth. As if sensing my attention, the tip of his tongue sneaks out and slides along his supple bottom lip. He smiles as he tastes the alcohol that’s staining his mouth. His eyes are bright and shiny and glazed over. He has a smirk on his face that shows off his dimple. It no longer reminds me of Whitt. It seems sinister and dangerous- promising something I’m not ready to experience.
The feel of his fingers playing with my hair gives me goosebumps and I shiver as my scalp tightens, sucking up the pleasant attention. I do my first stupid-girl moment of my life. I shameless crush on a guy and let it turn my thoughts to mush.
“Okay, if you promise to call Albert first.” I try to negotiate with him and he gives me a naughty smirk for agreeing.
He backs me up with his physical presence. His front touches mine- chest-to-chest. His lips part and breathes the smoky, whiskey scent onto my chin. My back hits the door behind me with an audible thump. He reaches around me and I don’t wince. I anticipate him touching me and crave it. Instead, his hand twists the doorknob by my hip and I fall backwards.
I’m pushed into a dark room until my legs connect with the edge of a bed. I can’t see anything, and the only sound is our combined breathing. I feel alive with caution. I’m aware of every hair, every nerve on my flesh. My senses are so in-tuned that I can feel my system pumping the blood through my veins nourishing my whole body.”
