This is finally a review for all the stories in the Mastered anthology.

This anthology is a lot of firsts for me: it's the first anthology I'm reading, with the exception of Joey W. Hill, the first time I'm reading anything by these authors, and Joey's novella is my first adult vampire story.

Now that I've read all the ten tales, I can say that some I liked a little more, some less, and one I absolutely loved. My reading preferences are such that not every story worked for me, which makes me beli

Dominant males who seduce a woman into submission is my kind of man. When the male possesses quiet authority, it's even more attractive. In this anthology, a submissively inclined reader is treated to one after another sensual male in panty wetting goodness. The book kicks off with Scientific Method by Joey W. Hill. This is my favourite story in the book.

Debra is a perfect servant. She is smart and the best partner for Brian. She gave up a lucrative life to become Brian's possession. Unfortunate

This is a terrific anthology by some of the best authors in erotic romance I have ever read. When the question arises as to what to read after 50 Shades of Grey this would be a great next book. I’ve read and enjoyed several of the authors in this anthology and found some new ones. I liked that these are full stories not short blurbs or one chapter teases.
My favorite stories from this anthology are The Scientific Method by Joey Hill, Juicy by T.J. Michaels, and Ink Reunited by Carrie Ann Ryan. I

OMG what a fabulous Anthology, at wonderful price. So many new book boyfriends and a few new authors to add to my list of must reads. If you are new to BDSM/erotic reads, this is a great way to dip your feet in the water and locate some favorite authors. These stories have something to offer every reader and did I mention how sexy these hot Doms were. I didn’t want to put it down. I am a huge Kate Pearce fan and all I can say is WOW, Julia and Alex were burning up the pages, I couldn’t put it do ...more

Joey W Hill - The Scientific Method. Vampire Servant series. Ok. Maybe because I haven’t read the other books in this series, but this wasn’t my favourite of Ms. Hill’s books. I felt there was far too much backstory and explanations of character’s behaviors. I did enjoy the romance overall, watching Debra and Brian realize they were in love was satisfying.

Opal Carew - Three Secrets. Three book 3. I enjoyed this one more than others I’ve read by Ms. Carew. The premise is a bit out there - that hi

This review is only for The Scientific Method by Joey W. Hill. Another amazing addition to the Vampire Queen Novel series. The Scientific Method is brilliantly written, passionate, erotic, and emotional. Ms. Hill has continued the roller coaster ride into her world, the world of her vampires and their servants in this 10 book series. As in all the other Novels, you became the character, your heart sores, aches, whimpers, sings, and cries with every word on the page. The details of the characters ...more

HOLY HOTNESS! ~~~~ To ALL 10 stories! I even read Joey Hill's story, The Scientific Method even tho I'm really not a paranormal reader and I found it to be likeable and well written!
I want to first thank Emily Ryan Davis for providing me with an ARC copy of this fantastic anthology! If I could rate it higher than 5 stars, I would.

This is only for the Joey Hill novella (or is it a novel? either way it's pretty long).

At any rate, I really love Joey Hill's vampire series. Jane Litte turned me on to them and they are DARK DARK SUPER DARK BDSM romances. But they're also really freaking awesome and I encourage everyone to read them. This particular story was about Lord Brian (the scientist that pops up in all the other books in the series) and his servant Debra. I've wanted to read these two and their story for a long time, so

Ten stories of BDSM with M/M, W/W and much more.

Loved this book. There were some stories that I liked more than others but they were all entertaining to say the least. There were also some stories that I just did not care for that much. My favorite was "Unfettered: An Overwatch Story" This involved a 30 year old woman who could not live the way she was currently living. Her sexual desires were more submissive because her job was so strict. She was a mechanic that men looked a

This review is for Juicy, by TJ Michaels! I had the opportunity to read it this weekend before the release date, and as always she did not disappoint. I could not stop reading it, I truly love the way she makes characters come alive in her novels! Solie is a solid character, one I hope to read more of!

A big box filled with domineering Doms and the submissive they need.
Ten stories, varied in length, filled with fluffy smut, BDSM and Doms in all shape and size. Half of this new to me authors I cant wait to read more from, and the other half authors I love and loved reading more from!
Great collection!

Awesome book 10 in the Vampire Queen series. I had been waiting for Lord Brian and Debra's story for a loooong time. This is a longer novella within the Mastered anthology. Wonderful emotions, evocative writing and a vampire dinner! Couldn't have asked for more.

So, this book turned out to have a lot of stories that were NOT stand-alone. This isn't made clear in the description, so that annoyed me. Anyways, breaking down the individual stories in the order they appear in the book, not the summary.

4 stars for The Scientific Method. This was a very good story and I will definitely be checking out more stories by Joey W. Hill after this. Debra has been with Lord Brian as his right hand in research and his third marked servant for the last 7 (?) years. (vie

This is a mixed bag of stories. Honestly, I've written and re-written this review about twenty times. Trying to condense ten reviews into one is quite a challenge. I will confess that I am an unabashed fan of Ms. Hill, but that doesn't mean I love everything she's written. And when I'm in reviewer mode, I make every effort to be critical but positive. I'm not going to give ten separate reviews, but I did make a few notes as I read. So, here goes.

I love all the authors but my first love (and heartache !!!!!) is and will be Joey H. Will
Joey W. Hill!!! I'm a huge fan (slightly addicted to her writing) so this made me really REALLY happy to see that Brian and Debra got this book :)
When you follow Joey and the "how" and "why" she writes you can not keep still and not wonder what is she going to pull out next. She proves constantly that there are different layers to us and to our relationships that will always keep you guessing !!

I received this book as an e-ARC free from Netgalley. Below is my review.

Three Secrets by New York Times and USA Today bestseller Opal Carew: 2.5
The last in a series, and it shows. There's no real build up. Too short to get to really know any character. A Domme who's really a switch? This one is probably more personal preference on the not for me" scale. Neither Nicole nor Abel felt remotely interesting.

His Secret by International and UK Sunday Times bestseller Portia Da Costa: 2.5

The Scientific Method Joey W Hill. 5 stars
Although this story belongs with a series, it was very easy to read without meeting the previous players. Two scientists. One vampire, one human servant. Of course there are misunderstandings as only scientists know how to do with particular craziness. Vampire Brian knows something is wrong with his servant, Debra. What he's failed to remember is that he has the means to figure it out himself. When another Servant, Jacob, points this out in a not so conv

The Scientific Method
I really enjoyed The Scientific Method. This story had so much depth and realness to it. I found that I had to remind myself that it was a fictional vampire story. The character structure was done so phenomenally that it made it so easy to be wrapped up in their thoughts. Joey allows her characters to have a complete thought process as they woul

This is a collection of stories from some of the hottest names in erotic fiction and at this amazingly low introductory price a must read . This is an anthology with a quite diverse range of stories but the one thing they do all have in common is heat! A simply fabulous way to try new authors and hopefully discover a brand new favourite but I'm sure most of the names featured here will be ones romance readers are already quite familiar with. Whilst these stories may not be the longest they are n ...more
Mastered the anthology features stories with a common theme of BDSM or the D/s romantic relationship. This review focuses more on Joey W. Hill's The Scientific Method, which is actually part of her Vampire series ( a paranormal but with strong D/s more into Master and servant themes). Lord Brian and Debra are familiar figures to readers of the series and here we get to glimpse the very intricate almost fragile relationship this two have. Complicated by rules about how Master and servant should b ...more

Juicy by T. J. Michaels

This is a story about a woman making her way back from an abusive relationship. It takes place within the BDSM community, so if you aren't into that kind of books, then this might not be for you. There is only mild play scenes in this book, so if you're interested in dipping your toes in this world, then maybe this is the book for you. It is the first in a trilogy called Twilight Teahouse. We meet Solie right after she's broken up with her ex, after she found out that he r

Oh Lordy Mercy! All these books in one book? Sometimes when you have all these books in one and read them you still are left wanting more. That is exactly what I felt reading this book. I never wanted it to end and now I am crying.

Every book you read seems to always leave new feelings and makes you feel so different. You can never fix what feelings they will be but here they are. I usually go through each one and describe each one. I'm tired of doing that and want to do something different, so t

Boxed Sets are becoming all the rage now and I was hoping to see one with an erotic slant and found this one to be an engaging read with a bit of varying kinks and themes for every reader. There's a bit of BDSM, a little m/m action, and a bit of vampy loving. From start to finish each one grabs you and keeps you enthralled to the very last story. Most of them felt fully fleshed-out and with surprising depth but one or two felt a bit less refined and more of an enjoyable fluff piece. Two or three ...more
