Mistake number one: falling in love with a man who betrayed me. Showing up on his doorstep years later asking for his help? Also not brilliant.

Haven: Naive. Foolish. Call it what you like, but I let myself get conned by a man who claimed he loved me. Nine years later, he’s as sexy and compelling as ever. I find myself wanting to believe he’s changed, wanting to believe I’m

As a fan of the dynamic writing duo of Jane Henry and Maisy Archer, I was excited when I saw that they had a new series, Master of Manhattan, and couldn’t wait to get into the book. Now, book two, which I have anxiously awaited has arrived, and it was just as intense and exciting as the first.

Who are the Masters? Well, they are five men who inherited a penthouse, a fortune, and enough information to jointly go after a group of criminals w

Adult Crime Novel with elements of Adult XXX Romance

Book one📑 would probably be good to read first if you haven't yet. It explains the reason for Master's Security. All of the men in the company had a family member killed under suspicious circumstances, but no one was ever arrested or charged. They were brought together to solve the murders, by using their hacking abilities and their various skills as a team.

Romantic, EROTIC, edge-of-your-seat suspense mixed with a character-driven plot – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
In this second book of The Masters series, “HUSTLER”, the writing team of Maisy Archer and Jane Henry have another phenomenal hit on their hands! I am half in love with these men, and that is merely because I’ve only been given the privilege of delving into two of the five men who are known collectively as The Masters. And these characters are so rich and well developed, one could only hope they

Haven Wright is a defense lawyer working for Max Pederson who is charged with the death of his wife, Emma. Max asks Haven to go see a group of men who can help her with his case but little does she expect to see the man who betrayed her many years ago.

Ethan Warner made a lot of mistakes in his past but he is a changed man and working on discovering who killed his brother. When his past walks into the room, he vows to make it up to her and her family for taking away so much from them.

I'm loving this series. The guys are crooks who are doing good things. They are mostly reformed. Only mostly. They still do the things that they always have done, but now they do them to find out who killed their friends and loved ones, and they are bound and determined to bring them to justice. Not necessarily the law, but justice.

Ethan was a grifter. When he got the invitation to show up at a penthouse, along with several other men, he finds out that the prison riot his twin brother, the pris

I am absolutely loving this series by Jane Henry and Maisy Archer. They make such a great team and produce books that have you satisfied with what you have read, but always eager for so much more! Hustler is no exception and is the second of the Masters of Manhattan series which follows Ethan, a 'Master' at manipulation and hustling and Haven, a lawyer who had become an unexpected victim of Ethan's past ways and is struggling to put her past hurts aside as she fights for her client's freedom and ...more

Fantastic second-chance romance, and an amazing second book in the series!

This book is Ethan’s turn, as the investigation that brought the Masters together now has drawn in Haven, a defense attorney who is also the one girl that Ethan had to leave behind years ago, even as he left his heart with her. Haven has never gotten over Ethan’s betrayal, but being back in his orbit brings back all the feelings she’s been trying for years to forget.

Once we’re given all the details of Ethan’s history, his

I love this series! I read Knave last week and absolutely fell in love with the Masters of Manhattan! Jane Henry and Daisy Archer have got it exactly right on the nose with the mix of action adventure and steamy romance. The dynamic and banter between the five heroes in the group and their varying personalities and back story is a fascinating mix that will really appeal to lovers of the genre. For fans of Jane and Maisy you won't be disappointed with the sensual dynamic we know and love from thi ...more

I have to say that I'm loving the Masters of Manhattan series! It's got the right mixture of suspense, angst, romance, action and a touch of dominance! This book is our look into the enigma that is Ethan. He appears on the outside as happy go lucky but inside he is a ball of regrets. His life was planned out from the time he was a child. His father was a grifter and that is the path that he continued to follow. Along the way there was a girl that made him regret his choices but he was too young ...more

“Hustler” is book 2 in the Masters of Manhattan series by Jane Henry and Maisy Archer and if you haven’t read any of this duos books, I suggest you start with book 1 and then, quick like a bunny, grab a copy of “Hustler”. The overarching premise to the stories is a group of men with seeming no connection whatsoever are brought together to figure out who killed someone close to them. And from there…the hunt begins.

In “Hustler”, we finally learn who killed Ethan Warner’s twin brother, Eli, and we

Hustler is the second book in the Masters of Manhattan series, and while it could be read as a stand-alone, I highly suggest reading the book one first to fully understand everything. Ethan is a master manipulator with a past that haunts his dreams and a vendetta against the people who murdered his brother. Luckily, he has a team, the Masters, who all have his back, but when a lady from his past walks into his apartment asking for help, he wants to right the all of the wrongs and claim Haven for ...more

I read this book as part of an arc program. This is the second book in the Masters of Manhattan series. In this book, Ethan's story is told. Ethan was a conman who swindled many people out of their life savings in his prior life, including Haven. Haven was a young woman when she met Ethan, who was using the name Tad at the time. When he took her virginity and conned her parents out of their money, she became very jaded. Haven went on to be a lawyer and was now hired to defend Max Pederson of mur ...more

In Hustler, we meet Haven, an attorney that is sent to the Masters for help in proving Max Pederson
did not kill his wife. Haven has a history with Ethan Warner who she knew as Tad but Tad was a grifter and conman who stole her heart, then her parent's life savings. Ethan has a lot to answer to as he never forgot Haven and hopes he can get a second chance with her. This is a fast paced story with a lot of intrigue, danger, risks and hot, steamy sex for Ethan and Haven as the Masters cooperate to

This is a series about a group of 5 men who seek vengeance and truth about someone who they have lost, each bringing a unique skill set to the table. Collectively they are known as the Masters. This is the second book and focuses on Ethan and Haven. Ethan used to be a con artist with no conscious and was very good at his trade. 9 years ago he took both Haven's virginity and all of her family's money. He now regrets his previous actions and wants to make amends for all of his wrongdoings.

I could not put this book down! There is no rest for the weary. The suspense keeps you reading looking for answers. The steamy sex scenes make you desire more. The relationship between all the character is so intricate that you cannot miss a word.

Each character received an invite to a place with no explanation. As they all begin to show up, more and more of the back story is revealed. As more details are described, the connections between all the characters are revealed. Those connections run d

Fast paced sexy second chance at love story

Jane Henry and Maisy Archer have a magical way of bringing characters to life.
Ethan and Haven are very believable and likable. Haven and Ethan both have old pain from how they parted 9 years earlier and the authors did a wonderful job within the plot of healing that pain and giving them a second chance to a very sexy HEA. The underlying plot continues from the first book as some of the Masters discover how and why their loved ones and friend were murde

I love that these books are as much stories with real plots that you have to pay attention to or you will have trouble following along and interesting, true to life characters. These books are as much about that as they are about the sexiness (which is awesome and I love too). We got a look at Ethan in the last book and Anson’s view of him. And in this book we got a much more in depth understanding of him and what motivates him. We also got to meet his Achilles heel, or perhaps better put, his s ...more

This was my first time reading a book by these authors, and I loved it. I unfortunately missed the first book Knave (this will be rectified!) so missed some of the story but it was easy enough to catch up.
The main male MC, Ethan, was a bit of an ass but it was nice to see how he redeemed himself throughout the duration of the story. I'm not going to post any spoilers as I hate spoilers in reviews, but there was a scene in the middle of the book that I thought summed up his determination to be th

Do to others as you would have them do to you, or so they say. A life lesson Ethan hadn't learned in due time. Many years ago, he had conned Haven. To him, she was just another one of his victims; to her, he was her entire world. Nine years later, fate unites them again. This time, they are allies in the battle against the mobsters who are guilty of Ethan’s brother’s death and Haven’s client’s framing for the murder of his wife. Passion reig

This book, the second in a series, is thoroughly enjoyable with good characters & great dialogue. I've read a few stories by these authors now and they all have that common thread. While not completely standalone, I believe that you would be able to enjoy this without reading book 1 but the over-reaching story is a continuation that flows into the next book, so don't think it's going to be wrapped up nicely at the end. My only issue with this book is the completely unrealistic way that it be ...more

This romantic suspense is fast-paced, it definitely keeps your adrenaline running. The plot is quite intricate but intriguing. Although I did not read the first of the series, this is an interconnected standalone and once I understood each character's role, it is easy to follow the plot.

The angst in this story, surprisingly, does not come from the main characters, Haven and Ethan, but rather the parallel suspenseful parts. The pace is quick as the couple's story is interspersed with the intrigu
