Let me start with *****EEEEEEEEKKKKKKK****** I love these box sets! I absolutely loved every story in Mastered: 10 Tales of Sensual Surrender and loved every story in Mastered 2: Ten Tales of Sensual Surrender just as much (some maybe even MORE!)

PLAYED BY THE MASTER by Opal Carew: It's no secret I love all things Opal! And this promises to be another fantastic story for of hers! This is a very hot short read. The gist is that Jacqueline is going to figure out how to get her brother in law out of

If you enjoy hot sexy reads then I would imagine most if not all of the authors featured here have crossed your path at some time. So it's with great delight that I recommend this fabulous anthology to my fellow book worms. Usually with this type of book I briefly mention the amazing value and opportunity to sample different authors work but as this was such a great read I will briefly give a few thoughts ( hopefully without spoilers) on what I liked about these stories.

I loved this boxed set so much I sat and read it from cover to cover and did not sleep until i finished it. It is hot steamy and oh so good. There is not one single book in this set that is not a good read. I thought Mastered 1 was HAWT well Mastered 2 was even hotter. Grab your copy and set your sheets on fire! Great authors who never disappoint!

With so many stories in this collection lets just say that there is something for everyone. There were some authors that I read and then there was a couple that were new to me as well. All in all it was a good collection .

I so loved each and every story. Each story though some are a series can be read as a standalone. You will find each story is very hot and steamy. So get your toys and wine out and be ready to be hot and bothered.

Played by that Master by Opal Carew:
Jacqueline Bell is a strong beautiful woman who loves her family and is willing to do anything for them. Her brother-in-law gets into some trouble and Jacqueline cannot stand the thought of her sister having a baby and raising 2 kids on her own. So sh

I read only read Mastering the Mistress by Evangeline Anderson in the Mastered 2 Book

Stars: 5

Pros: I loved how innocent Kayla was and how she went about treating Solar. I also really enjoyed that the POVs changed back and forth between them so you got a better idea of what was going on. My favorite parts was when Layla was called out by the Eminence and also when Solar stunned her ass. That bitch went down like a tone of bricks. Evangeline Anderson is always wowing me with her sex scenes and how

I loved every story in this collection!! One of my favorites was Mastering The Mistress by Evangeline Anderson.

The story of Solar the "slave" and Kaylee the "mistress" is the perfect blend of romance, lust, action and kink!

I highly recommend this boxed set. All of the stories grabbed and held my interest and it is unusual for me to enjoy every story within a boxed set because you always seem to get a few stories that don't follow the theme that caught your interest in the first place.

Overall rating 5/5 stars

Mastered 2 is a wonderful collection of stories that all have a BDSM theme. I'm a bit wary of anthologies as I often find that I only like one or two of the stories, but I can honestly say that I enjoyed all of the stories in Mastered 2. I've rated each of the stories individually and they all got four or five stars, there wasn't a bad apple amongst them. I was already a fan of many of the authors in this collection, but I have also discovered some new talented authors t

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

I loved this anthology. Hands down the best anthology I have read in a while and I look forward to reading more from these authors.

What happens when you crash an exclusive poker game run by sexy billionaire Race Danner? I gather that most people would be thrown out immediately, but not Jacqueline Bell! She is determined to help her sister, but will her determination be a match for the seductive Race? Can she handle

It's hard to do a good long review on so many outstanding stories in this boxed amongst the writers featured here I chose one I know to review her input: EVANGELINE ANDERSON
Meet timid little Kaylee, a girl raised in the backwaters of a totally woman ruled world. Kaylee has a big surprise waiting for her...she inherits a fortune, a towering apartment building and a dungeon just waiting for her first male slave.

This is a great anthology and gives readers an awesome variety or different authors to sample some of their best short stories. If you are a fan of books involving "sensual surrender" you will definitely enjoy the book.
I read the book primarily for Evangeline Anderson's story "Mastering The Master" it is the second part of her last Brides of the Kindred book Enslaved. In that book Thrace and Solar are drugged at a bar in a space port and end up being sold as slaves in the Flesh Market. Both are

I received this book as an ARC from Net Galley for my honest review.

This book is Hot Hot Hot! There is a story here for everyone who likes their romance with a lot of spice! The Authors they picked were a great fit they worked together to make something fabulous. Very well written for a great price!

I originally went after this book because of Opal Carew, I honestly love her work, but when I completed the novel I had ten new Authors to add to my must read list!

I love box sets. And for the price this is currently offered at? You just can't lose.

I've read 2 stories so far... I'll add more reviews as I read more. :)

Once again… Opal Carew just knows how to write a novella that is short and sweet while still being hot and satisfying. She’s able to make you love her characters really quickly… and create a complete story that just draws you in.

I loved that Jacqueline’s motivation was her sister and family. It told you righ

Don't let the duration of my "Currently Reading" start date and end date mislead you. Yes, it took me some months before finally finishing this boxed set, but not because the stories were not good, or there were too many of them.

I gotta be honest because it's an initial impression, I wasn't in the mood to finish reading (almost didn't) because the last story was about gay romance (with sex of course). I have nothing against them, my bestie is one actually but I just didn't feel like reading it.

PLAYED BY THE MASTER by Opal Carew - 2.5 stars
It was fine. A little too willing on the girls part for all of her play acting at being a strong woman. Flip the switch and say yes master, no problem.

TANGLED & BOUND by Jennifer Leeland with Emily Ryan-Davis - 1 star
Not for me, I really did not get it or enjoy the story at all. While I'm not opposed to a little ménage tres action I did not like anything about the characters and lack of plot line in this story.

Anthologies are so hard to review because there are always really good stories and then some that are a bit less. I'm not sure that I've ever given a 4 star rating to an anthology though. Yes, this had a few stories that I just couldn't connect to but they weren't awful and then the ones that I did connect with were out of this world awesome! This collection was put together very well, the stories really did mesh very well with one leading seamlessly to the next. This really was a great introduc ...more

I love a good anthology and this one easily moves up to one of my all time favorites. I love all the stories but my favorite was from a favorite author of mine, Evangeline Anderson. After reading Enslaved I couldn't wait to get my hands on Mastering the Mistress. It is about Solar and Kaylee. Solar is a Havoc, like Thrace from Enslaved. Kaylee is from Opulex and was left an inheritance from her great aunt. Her friend convinces her to buy Solar from the Flesh Bazaar as a sex slave to better fit i ...more

I was surprised by this box set. I was expecting 10, maybe 9, full length novels, but what I got were quick, easy, and hot reads that were more novella length. This was definitely a good thing as I don't usually requested box sets, but this one piqued my interest.

I read all but three stories in this box set and they were all spicy and hot reads. The ones I didn't read had nothing to do with the writing, it was just the subject matters didn't interest me.

Overall I'd definitely recommend this box

wowza a steamy hot sexy read, it kept me wide awake till 6am when i finally put it down.

since there are so many amazing stories in this set im just going to single out my favourite by Cynthia Sax.

ONE NIGHT WITH MY BILLIONAIRE MASTER by Cynthia Sax: This book is a pantie dropper and then some.

It is also raw and emotional. You have a girl, Arianna she has been told that she is worthless for most of her life as well as being told she will amount to nothing. by Everyone.

But not by the sexy handsom

This compilation by such best-selling authors as Opal Carew, Jennifer Leeland with Emily Ryan-Davis, Portia Da Costa, Cynthia Sax, Saskia Walker, Madelynne Ellis, Karen Fenech, Evangeline Anderson, T.J. Michaels, Ruby Foxx, and Avery Aster far exceeded my expectations. Personally, I would have bought the book for Avery Aster and Opal Carew’s novels alone, but to find all the other stories so totally enthralling was such a wonderful bonus. Most of the novels are stand-alone, while a few are part ...more

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review. This is a great collection of stories and authors. They are a steamy group of stories that was a quick read. Avery Aster XO is about Blake and a prequel to his the next book. I love the Manhattanites series so this was another great addition which was surprised me since I wasn't so sure about mix up with Blake, Diego, and Miguel. It worked well and I can't wait to read the next addition. This is for mature adults and wild. These are guys and ...more

Hot, fun and kinky. Full of steamy stories by many of today's top authors. There are 11 short stories full of everything from new found encounters to people with trust issues there is nothing missed in these exciting new stories. Opal Carew's story of the woman that breaks into a poker game to plead for her sister's innocent husband is a none stop read. I couldn't put it down. Tangled and Bound showed that love can conquer all even fear. I can describe each story but that takes all the fun out o ...more

All of the books in this collection are super hot. This is definitely meant only for adults.

I liked some of the stories better than others. My favorites were XO, Blake by Avery Aster, Played By The Master by Opal Carew, and One Night With My Billionaire Master by Cynthia Sax.

I won't tell you which ones I didn't care for. You can make your own decisions when you read it.

Some were longer than others, some were hotter, some had more plot, some were more kinky than others and there is even some man
