I love Maya Banks. I've read about a dozen of her books, and have never been let down.

Until now.

*sigh* This sucks. Because I really wanted Dominated to blow me away. I wasn't a huge fan of Mastered, but that ending - how could I NOT read Dominated as soon as I could get my hands on it? Dominated was the second chance to get me to fall in love with this couple and believe that they were perfect for each other. I wanted Drake to come alive for me and I wanted Evangeline to grow a pair of lad

nothing big to write home about!
The conclusion to Drake and Evangeline's turmoiled relationship turned out to be just that a "turmoil" of faux and begging for forgivness, trials and errors...

God, never have i read about such "black and white" characters...

Shadow's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Dominated is the second half of the first book in a trilogy planned by Maya Banks. The first half, Mastered was intriguing and well written. The heroine, Evangeline, is somewhat naive and far too trusting, but is at least believable. The cliff hanger at the end of the book was frustrating but the rest of the book was enjoyable. The same cannot be said for the second half.

For one thing, although Drake left her devastated at the end of the fir

Yes I actually read this after the disaster of book 1 but curiosity and all that jazz

So this picks up where the previous book ended, Drake finally manages to track down Evangeline and after some pretty, pretty begging he convinces her to give him another chance

Things settle back into the usual routine of Evangeline cooking and baking her way into men's hearts everywhere, they fuck each other and the the dude again, her parents visit and we are left clueless as to why or if her best

"Angel, you were-are- the only good thing in my life, and God help me but I couldn't do the right thing and let you go. I had to have you. I needed you. I still need you."

This is the conclusion to Evangeline and Drake's story and it was a good one. You must read Mastered to understand fully what is going on. I didn't think that Drake could screw up worse then was he did in Mastered but holy crap, yes he does. I mean I like get it but then don't. I was kind of getting irritated with both characte

Usually I don't do this, I don't abandon the "fight", but sadly this book made me K.O.
I will not continue the series, because I don't give a flying fuck what happens anymore. It's a waste of my time, and although I have a little to for reading, I prefer to read a GOOD BOOK

Emotional roller coaster…

After the way Mastered ended, I have been impatiently waiting for this follow-up story, which takes that emotional cliffhanger and just keeps on going…

Evangeline and Drake met by chance but the connection they had was hot and fiery from the start. Evangeline was sweet, stubborn and devoted to her family and friends, and now Drake. He was her dominant and her love, there was nothing she wouldn’t do for him. Drake really didn’t know what to make of this woman who wanted n

This story starts right where book one ended and I swear I held my breath the first 20% of it! It was intense. It definitely pulled me in right from the start.

I really liked the overall storyline and intensity happening. There is so much turmoil and pain going on for both Drake and Evangeline. I was completely fascinated by Drake and his dominate ways. Loved learning Drake’s details and seeing his raw, vulnerable moments as he really starts changing and opening up. As far as Evangeline goes, I l

Oh Maya, what happened?

This is the kind of woman that would let her partner abuse her and her kids because she's so in love with her man. She could only aspire to being a doormat.

Gross and DNF.

first thing I need to find out .. will there be another book. the answer to that may impact how I feel about this book. I liked this one a heck of a lot more than Mastered, and lets be honest that ending killed us all.

in Dominated, I feel like maybe I had my expectations too high. maybe I needed too much from this book. I liked it, alot. and I liked the storyline and the characters, but I still feel like I have unanswered questions.

I'm all about Maya Banks' books. I love them. I've read well over a dozen of her books, and they all end up on my awesome list. Until now.

While Mastered, book 1, wasn't the strongest I've read by her, after the killer ending I was dying to pick this one up the second I got my hands on it.

So much of this book felt like a science paper to me. Subject A meets Subject B, they do this. I was missing the passion, the spark, that special something that I look for between characters. I want to know th

Review for Dominated by Maya Banks

Dominated is book two in the Enforcers series by Maya Banks and it is not a stand alone. This is a perfect follow up to the cliff-hanger from Mastered. Filled with sublime characters and a story that will suck you in from page one Dominated has the power to make you soar with happiness and completely wreck you. I expect nothing less from Banks and she always manages to deliver.

I spent a good part of this book wanting to smack Drake — infuriating man! It was so h

Dominated is the the second book in The Enforcers Trilogy by Maya Banks. Dominated picks up where Mastered left off with Evangeline and Drake's story. Drake isn't the typical hero but I found myself drawn to him anyway despite the lies and mystery surrounding him. This trilogy is fast paced

I was dying to get my hands on this book because of how Mastered ended. I just knew it was going to start off on a high note, but I didn't expect for Drake to completely transform the way he did! They are both heartbroken and trying to slowly get back to where the relationship used to be. Evangeline especially needs to be taken care of after her heart was shattered.

I wanted to hug Evangeline from the very beginning! Her friends were worthless! Even Drake's men were there for her more than her g

Complete & utter BS. The asshole of an "H" disgusts me. The H did grovel at the end but I was over it. His waxing of poetic thoughts about her didn't make sense considering how he treated her. I skimmed at parts because the book was boring

Evangeline ugh such a doormat. Hell the way she just took him back. I wanted to slap her for having no self respect. Other times I felt sorry for her & I wanted her to end up with Maddox.

All I can say is OMG can someone please just slap Evangeline across the head. She just gives women a bad name. This was going to be a DNF but I am a glutton and hope there was some redeeming quality. You know what changing rating to 2 stars. I wish Silas had beaten Drake's ass for the way he treated her on both occasions. Lord and there's one more book to read. ...more
This is part 2 of Drake and Evangeline's story, which started in Mastered. Maybe it was a mistake on my part to read them back-to-back but I ended up skimming about 60% of this book. There was just nothing interesting on display until the very end where the final climax was set up. And I was completely OVER reading about Evangeline's childlike behavior and insistence that she wasn't nearly pretty enough, while Drake and all his men insisted she was the most amazing and desirable woman on earth.

Well sadly this book was just meh for me. After the cliffy from the first book, Mastered, I couldn't wait to read this one and although it started with promise, it quickly fell apart for me. The hero, Drake, is supposed to be a force of nature and a possible mob boss but dominate he is not. He's an abused little boy walking around in a man suit who has trust issues and Evangeline comes off as a weepy woman with self esteem issues. The basic underlying theme is more Wendy and the Lost Boys. All o ...more

This book is a follow up on the first book in this series.
You could read it as a stand alone, but when you dot hat you miss out some details.

Drake knows he has been so damn stupid, he needs to find her and bring her back in his life.
She forgives him and their relationship is building stronger and stronger. That part is a fun read, with lots of caring, loving and spicy hot moments.

But thanks to his past he can't believe for the full 100% she loves him like she does. So when trouble is on his door

Just when it seems there can be a happy ever after, there's even more angst as Drake believes Evangeline has betrayed him yet again.

At this point, all his promises of trust and faith in her goes poof. I totally expected her to dig out for good.... and he would deserve that loss!

Not sure I understood the title as in the end the one who was supposed to be the strong one was actually weak while the innocent proved to rue the day.

It’s been a long few months since Book 1 in The Enforcer series (Mastered) came out and left me wanting to scream in frustration at the cliffhanger ending. When we last left Drake and Evangeline, they were in splitsville after Drake’s heinous behavior caused a rift that seemed insurmountable and Evangeline ran out into the night with no where to go and nothing to her name.

Drake, inconsolable, makes it his mission to scour the city with the help of his men to find Evangeline and bring her back ho

The second book in The Enforcers Series is a hi-octane, suspenseful, steamy, and heartwarming story with more twists and turns that will keep you guessing what will happen to Evangeline and Drake.


Tumultuous. Gripping. Steamy. Maya Banks doesn’t hold back the sexiness or the drama in her ENFORCERS Series.

In the first two books of The Enforcers Series, we meet Evangeline and Drake. They are an unlikely couple that when together, there is nothing w

Finally! Mastered left me hanging in the worst way and I’ve been dying, DYING to get ahold of Dominated. This book is every bit as intense as the first book, but Maya does a nice job of changing the dynamic so it doesn’t seem like a long, drawn out continuation of Mastered. Writing a review for this book without spoilers is going to be tough!
Maya is very talented at creating well-developed characters, however, I did have a little irritation with Evangeline near the end. But, I won’t spoil it,

I reviewed my personal copy of this book for Wicked Reads BYOB.

This is the second book in the Enforcer series and you definitely need to read book 1 first, as this one starts where book 1 leaves off.

Evangeline is shredded. She trusted Drake with her whole heart and in return, he cut her down with vicious precision. Not only is she needing a place to lay low, but she has to content with having no support syste

“I need help," she said breathlessly. "Can you zip me up?"

"This has got to qualify me for sainthood," Silas muttered. "A man can only take so much, for fuck's sake.”
“Oh my Jesus," she breathed. "Evangeline, what do you do with all these wonderful young men?"

Evangeline choked and Drake squeezed her hand beneath the table, his features working up and down as he tried to suppress his laughter over Evangeline's mortification. Maddox smirked while Silas's lips turned up into a slow grin.

"Not nearly enough," Maddox said morosely.”
