3.5 stars

First book I've read in this series, and I was a little lost the during the first part of it. Rhett and Rebel are hot, but with all the nicknames flying around I kept getting them confused. I finally had to write it all down to try to keep them separate. Brynn was strong and not about to let the boys leave her behind when they rescued her friend and got the bad guys. They had their work cut out for themselves with convincing Brynn that she was a submissive. The

4 Star review of Mastered (Honor Bound # 8) by Angel Payne

I have read all the books in this series and I will admit that if I see the name Angel Payne, then it will always be an automatic purchase. Thrust together on a mission to save a comrades wife (Shay nearly broke my heart with the fear he had for his wife Zoe) who has been kidnapped, opens up a huge can of worms and unlocks feelings that at times appeared overwhelming for Rhett, Rebel and Brynna .

Although this is a stand–alone, I really

Unleashing the Dark Side

This is another stellar story by Angel Payne. This is the 8th entry in the Honor Bound Series, and my favourite so far. We have Brynna Monet, Rhett Lange and Rebel Stafford assisting in a mission to free Brynna's best friend Zoe from a monster who has captured her for his own devious devices.

Brynna, Rhett and Rebel each have issues and secrets that they are floundering to come to terms with. They are all fighting their inner feelings for each other as they all explore

Fiesty, smart mouth Brynn Monet is fed up men and submissive relationships. Two men in the Special Forces, Rebel and Rhett brothers of arms, seem to keep her panties wet even though she hasn't been intimate with them.

Brynn, Rebel and Rhett are overwhelmed by seeing a side of Shay, Zoe's husband, they never knew existed after pregnant Zoe's kidnapping.

Brynn is thrown into a mission in Texas as a secret consultant for the Special Forces to help rescue her best friend, Zoe, from the hands of a

Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review. I would like to thank the author for giving me this opportunity and honor in being able to read this book. When I received this book I began reading it at once. it grabs you from the beginning and holds you to the last page. I really enjoy the authors writing style, the author pulls you into the book from the very beginning and makes it so you don't want to put the book down. It kept me on the edge of my seat reading from cover to cover. This ...more

This book was an ARC. Brynna, Rhett and Rebel floored me! This book was so emotionally hot and intense that I wished for more hours in the day to keep reading. I was wowed by the way they came together, fought their inner demons and shared so much physically and emotionally. The start of the story really made me mad. I mean who other than a madman would kidnap an eight months pregnant woman! I felt for Shay in his agony because I really love Shay and Zoe. Theirs was an amazing story as well. ...more

THIS is not my first book by Angel Payne but my second. As I recieved this as an ARC I didn't have time to read the other 7 books. This was my first in the series and I loved it. The characters were relatable. The writing was detailed and the story was intriguing. Angel Payne' s writing blew me away... yet again.

4 Mastered Stars. Welcome to the dark side.
Mastered by Angel Payne is book8 in the Honor Bound Series. I strongly recommend to read the previous books first. Mastered picks up where Masked, book 7, left off.
Zoe is heavily pregnant and was kidnapped by a rival. Her husband is beyond himself. He and his brethren do everything to get Zoe back.
Her best friend, Brynna Monet does everything to help. Shes assigned as consultant on a military resue mission. The Spec Forces bad boys Rhett Lange and Rebel

Another amazing book from the Honor Bound series. Angel keep the team of soldiers together along with finding the loves of their lives. Rhett and Rebel have been team mates in their daily lives for a long time. Adding Brynna to help them on a mission was not what any of them expected. They all were there to help out a team mate and they all discovered how to open their hearts and share them with each other. Let your heart open and feel the love that is flowing in and out of it. Awesome story ...more

Omg!! This book is my favorite of this series by far. I absolutely love military romance but this talented author has exceeded my expectations. This is the eighth book in the Honor Bound series. It could be read as a stand alone but you might get a little lost due to some of the prior characters that are in this story as well. I was hooked right from the beginning. These characters kept me awake at all hours of the night. It only took me a full day to devour this unforgettable story.

Angel Payne is one of those magnificent writers that just continues to get better with each novel. Mastered By The Mavericks was an incredible work of art at the hands of a literary genius.

Each Wild Boys Novel Angel writes brings us a little closer to this tight knit group. We learn intimate details and as readers form unbreakable connections with some incredible characters. Mastered By The Mavericks is an intense storyline full of action, drama, suspense and some incredibly hot sexy scenes that

I so loved Brynna. She was sweet and sassy and would do anything for those she loves. And she does for her friend who has been taken by a deranged man. She pushes Rhett and Rebel to take her along on the mission to rescue her friend. Not only is there the tension of being able to do that, but there is some serious sexual tension as well. These men want her and they aim to have her. I loved the banter between them as well as the steamy moments they shared. I really love this series and loved ...more

Another FIVE STAR read by Angel Payne. She has quickly become one of my favorite authors and I can promise you, anything you pick up by her, you will NOT be able to put down. Hook, line, and sinker she reels you in.

This series is definitely 17-18+, but they can be read as standalones. I advise for you to read them in order because there is a bit of referencing to previous novels in the series, not enough for you to be lost or truly confused though.

Every damn time I pick up an Honor Bound Book by the awe inspiring Angel Payne I know I am in for a serious trip down emotional lane. Mastered was like sitting down to a elegant five course meal that taunted your senses, tricked your pallet, then left you in a carb coma with a huge grin on your face. Rebel, Rhett, and Brynna will spin circles in your mind as they all put their own lives on the line to save Zoe. What neither of them are prepared for is the raw honesty that can be revealed when ...more

Mastered (Honor Bound book 8) is definitely in the running of being one of my favorite (I'm still kind of partial to Dan). It isn't necessary but I would suggest reading the prior books just to get the full experience.

Reading this book was like being in a tsunami. There's the trepidation and heartbreaking realization in the beginning, then the actual wave of fighting for either your life or for the lives of your loved one. And lastly is the aftermath where you try to salvage the pieces, analyze

This book definitely lived up to it's title. So many feelings go through you. I can't even describe it. Rhett & Rebel are the yin and yang to Brynna. The journey Brynna goes through to realize what she truly needs and desires is both heart wrenching and breath taking. But Rhett & Rebels journey is even more so but so damn sexy. You go on an emotional rollercoaster during this amazing book including some heartbreaking moments that lead to the happiest. Such an amazing story!!

WOW Angel you did it again. This story took alot of turns that I didn't see coming. Not normally a m/m reader but the story between Rebel, Rhett and Brynna was filled with so much LOVE and turmoil that it had me hooked from the beginning. I'm so glad that these wonderful characters were able to go full circle to gain what they all needed and deserved from life.

~*~ 3.5 STARS ~*~

Angel Payne gives us a good combination of romantic suspense and BDSM romance in her latest installment of her Military Romance series - The WILD Boys of Special Forces. There is sweetness and tenderness, along with intensity and passion. Brynna, Rhett, and Rebel are not my favorite characters in this series, but they held their in own okay, and kept me engaged with their HOT chemistry and feisty banter. Ménage romances are tough to write. Sometimes it's hard to follow dual

This is quite possibly the best book I’ve read in this genre (erotic romance, military romance. ménage). Angle Payne has truly shared a story like no other and you are shorting yourself by not diving into the WILD Boys series immediately. I pre-ordered this book months ago, so the anticipation and expectations were a bit high, and Angel Payne delivered! She has created a community of characters that you get lost in and stories that are palpable. Mavericks is the most emotionally charged, gut ...more

If you’ve read any of my previous reviews, you know that I’m a ’total fan-girl’ for Angel Payne - and this book just upped the ante!!

The story begins with our favorite Honor Bound Boys watching their brother Shay fall apart due to his pregnant wife, Zoey being kidnapped by the quintessential ‘mad scientist’ - one that Shay is all to familiar with. All the ‘boys’ are now involved in the hunt for Zoe and the rescue to return her to Shay. Brynna is Zoe’s best friend and she will stop at nothing to

I've had the pleasure of reading Angel's work before and loved it. This is coming to be a pretty cool series, I've read a couple of the books and now I want to go back and read the ones in between.

In the lives of a special op team its not always easy, you have to take your fun where you can usually. When you have a past thats less than loving, you learn coping skills. Those skill will either uplift you or haunt you. Both males Rhett and Rebel has

I have to say that this is one of my favorite series and one that I am always on the look out for. Why? Well Angel does a great job keeping you sucked into her stories. There's action, love, angst and of course some hot sex scenes, just to name a few. Each book can be read as a standalone but I love reading them all. I did miss the last two (boo! darn it) but I didn't feel lost which is great!

I loved the main characters in this story. You have Brynn, Rhett and Rebel in this book. Each of them

While this maybe Book 8 in the series it can be easily read as a standalone. Theirs is a truly deep seated love that cannot be denied. Brynne is Zoe's best friend and when Zoe is kidnapped Brynne comes forward to the husband Shay in the hope that she can help in any way. Shay brings in the rest of his team mates that are shattered across the globe in a rescue mission to return his heavy pregnant wife home safely. Rhett and Rebel are part of the rescue.
