He wants to dominate her senses—and her heart…

Quinton Ross has always been a thrill-seeker—so it’s no surprise that he’s drawn to extremes in the bedroom and at his BDSM club, Blasphemy, where he creates sense-depriving scenarios that blow submissives’ minds. Now if he could just find one who needs the rush as much as him…

Cassia Locke hasn’t played at Blasphemy since a cav

While I really enjoyed the last story in this series, I found this one a little harder to link with. The characters didn't have the chemistry and development I expected. Quinton didn't really come across as the hardcore dom he was purported to be. Cassia was alright but nothing stood out for me. The plot felt like it had potential, but it didn't quite get there in my opinion. I won't say that it was bad, because it wasn't. It was just not something I found a connection with.

3* hide n seek STARS!

I was impressed by the author's previous book, Bound to Submit. Laura Kaye really did amazing job to bring out BDSM without over-exaggerating and that's why I'll keep reading this series. Unfortunately, Mastering Her Senses ended up just okay for me.

Since Quinton Ross inspired from Chris Pratt based on the author, I kept imagined Pratt's face as a dominant when I read this book. I just couldn't help feeling giddy for Master Quinton. He specialize in sensory deprivation. Quin

Mastering Her Senses by Laura Kaye is one mega hot novel that will leave you breathless.

I picked this book up as apart of the anthology A Love Thing - I was told by the amazing author Tamsen Parker that the anthology book (full of tons of sexy ebooks) was free on Amazon, so I picked it up. I had already read Tamsen's books and loved it, so I figured her book Personal Geography had to be alongside some books similar that I might enjoy. Luckily, I was right!

I really enjoyed this novel! It was fast

Great second book. These women have pasts to overcome that I've not encountered before. I'm loving these new histories and circumstances. The Doms are just amazing doing extra research to make sure everything is perfect, and of course, beating themselves up when things don't go as planned.

Cassia (her brother is Jagger from the Raven Riders, love it when series overlap) and Quinton were supposed to do a scene two years ago when tragedy struck her. Now they've reconnected and are smoking

I am so relieved to say, I liked this a lot!! Quinton and Cassia were so sweet and sexy together. Both very likable characters. Both very happy, fun loving thrill seekers that were so much more than kinky sex. But that kinky sex was pretty hot!

We get a short visit with the Raven Riders. Cass is Jagger's little sister. This book made me smile. It made me feel relieved, and happy. Thanks, LK for not letting me down. The only little problem was that the ending was a little bit abrupt. Otherwise, v

Mastering Her Senses was the second book in the Blasphemy series by Laura Kaye.

Quinton Ross was a sexy co-owner of the Blasphemy, a BDSM club, and Master of sensory deprivation.

Cassia Locke had survived a cave accident where she was trapped in the dark for days; however, she was still suffering panic attacks related to darkness. She attempted to conquer the fear by participating in a dark room scene at Blasphemy; however, it backfired.

Mastering Her Senses by Laura Kaye is an enticing, raw, and sexual erotic romance that touches on the subject of BDSM. Though this series deals with a group of Masters and their submissives, Laura Kaye provides readers with a glimpse of the physical and emotional connection that blooms between a Master and his submissive.

I enjoyed this book. I liked it nowhere as much as the previous book in the series, though. What can I say, but that I love the angst? This one had low angst (unlike the previous). The characters were sweet and emotionally mature, which I appreciated. I had read a few NA’s with impulsive MC’s so these books are a nice change of paces There were some really hot scenes. It was nice catching up with the couple from the previous book in this one. I’m loving the setting of these books. Wonder if such ...more
Quinton is a Dom, and one of the owners of Club Blasphemy. Cassia is submissive that he previously had an eye on before she went MIA from the scene. They both notice chemistry brewing, as he attempts to use his skill to help work through residual effects from an accident, still holding her back.

The Good:
1. The romance is very sweet for a BDSM themed read.
2. Though book 2 in this series, I had no problem starting with this book. It works as a standalone.

The Bad:
1. I prefer a little more tension

After a horrible accident a couple of years ago Cassia is petrified of the dark and it's affecting her life in all kinds of negative ways, even down to stopping her from doing the job she has always loved. Desperate to overcome her fears she turns to Blasphemy, the club she used to be a member in the hope of working through her fears with the help of a Dom. Quinton is the club's expert when it comes to sensory deprivation and when he sees how much Cassia is struggling because of her pho

The more I read of the Blasphemy Series, the more I like it. It’s hot, hot, hot and it has an actual story line. This works for me on several levels.

Quinton, after watching a couple of his friends find their life partners, finds himself longing for that himself. He’s not willing to settle though, he wants it all and is willing to hold out for his perfect match. His kink is all about sensory play including deprivation as he considers it the biggest mind-f*ck of all.

This was an awesome read. Super hot with likable characters! I really liked both Quinton and Cassia. Quinton was super sweet and caring, helping Cassia deal with some past issues. Together they were playful, fun, and sweet with the perfect amount of teasing and flirting mixed in. I really liked Cassia, she was bold and daring, and brave wanting to face her fears.

There was a nice amount of emotion and drama that I really enjoyed. There were a lot of really great intense moments that where passion
I've gotta say, I'm absolutely LOVING this side of Laura Kaye's writing! It's so sensual and erotic and at the same time, packed with so much heart and emotion. From the minute I finished the first book in the series, I've wanted to get my hands on Master Quinton's story. There was just something about him, his easy going, laid back attitude that reeled me in from the very beginning. Oh, but in MASTERING HER SENSES, that man comes alive! We see the Master at work, and my god is it SEXY AS HELL!

This was a really quick but hot read in the Blasphemy series by Laura Kaye. There was heat, passion, friendship and love. Quinton and Cassia were perfect together. I love the fact that their pairing was almost fated in a way, but a tragic accident in the past just delayed it. This story was scorching enough to satisfy BDSM lovers but was sweet enough to make the hopeless romantics swoon!

Quinton and Cassia have a history together. Two years earlier, a geological expedition ended tragically when

I'm just loving this series. Yes it's about BDSM, but that's only one part of it. Now don't get me wrong, there is a bunch of fun kinky sex, but there is also a wonderful love story to go with it.

Since the first book in the series I've been waiting for Quinton's story. From the second he was introduced I was drawn to him. With him I'd be willing to try anything. ANYTHING!!!

Holy smokes. That was HOT. There are some books that I think, that was hot, and there are others that I think I need to go find my husband after reading cause it was HOT. This was the second one for me ;) It pushed all the right buttons.

And the one doing all those button pushing? That honor goes to Master Quinton. He was just Dominant enough, while keeping his teasing, easy-going personality. I loved it! The way he cared for Cassia was swoon-worthy. And his caring went far beyond just the playro

This book didn’t have the same amount of chemistry for me that Bound to Submit (one of my favorites) did. Still, it was a good book with some hot sexy times. There was only a little angst because it originated as a no-strings-attached relationship but they overcame the obstacle with very little drama.

“Because this incredible, handsome, adventurous man she'd found-he was her light in the dark.”

I was a few paragraphs in and I'm already in love with Master Quinton.

I've anticipated this book more because I was secretly hoping it was Q's story that would be next in the series, and what do you know, wish granted. Thank you Laura!

Master Quinton is just my kind of man. Other than being a Dominant, he's also an adrenaline junkie.

“Those eyes. Hazel with the gold. And he suddenly knew he’d seen them before. Years ago.”

Quinton is a laid-back person who enjoys spending his free time camping, hiking and with a bit more thrill seeking stuff like skydiving. Being a Dom at Blasphemy is more than just spending some kinky time, Quinton is into BDSM and he enjoys the lifestyle. As co-owner of the club he can always find a willing submissive to play with, but lately Quinton starts to become a little restless. Two of his fellow

Quinton is one of the 12 Masters at Blasphemy. We've met him in the prior books in this series, and he's always come across as fun, sweet, and down for whatever. He's into sensory deprivation scenes, and he's mostly into making sure his partner has the best time possible.

In the mood for a swoon-worthy, feel-good romance that just *happens* to have a significant amount of kink? Who would say no to that?! I'm a huge fan of everything Laura Kaye writes and my latest addiction is her outrageously steamy BDSM-themed series, Blasphemy. Mastering Her Senses, the newest installment in the series, is as jaw-droppingly erotic and sinfully decadent as its predecessors. It's a story about love, lust, letting go, and conquering your fears. Add in a whirlwind romance that’s b ...more

I love everything Laura Kaye publishes. This series, although not my go to trope, has me HOOKED! This is Book #2 but the third story of the series. Master Quinton has been intriguing all along and we finally get a look at what he has to offer.

What I like about the series is that the Masters of Blasphemy are not only good friends, but also good business men. They run an upstanding club. People are happy . Fantasies are fulfilled. I enjoyed the first two stories so much because we get a peek at t

For the most part, I have really enjoyed the Blasphemy series to this point, but my main complaint about them has always been that they are entirely too short. This book marks the first time that the story has suffered for that brevity.
