The first time Sean Bates sees Alessa Alexander at a lifestyle club without one of her friends attending with her, he doesn’t approach her or interfere, deeming it’s none of his business. The second time, his protective, dominant instincts force him to confront her, and then offer his professional counseling for her needs.

Alessa’s desire to turn herself over to a man’s fu

I have to be honest. I’m hooked on this series. At times things are a bit OTT, but they do make a great fantasy. This can be read as a standalone, but I believe since there are couples formed and past events that get mentioned so it would spoil your enjoyment of the prior books.

Alessa is interested in trying a bit of BDSM, but she doesn’t want her friends to know about it. That was a bit odd since the girls she hangs out with are all subs already, but ok, let’s go with it. Then she tries a coupl

It's finally time for Sean's story, and I'm glad I got read it.

Sean has been feeling restless lately around all his friends who are pairing up. What Sean wants (a relationship where his sub/partner cedes all control to him in everything) is something he just does not see ever happening. Most of the subs he's played with are nowhere near wanting that, and he's resigned himself to the fact that he'll never be in a committed relationship like the ones his friends are enjoying. When he sees Alessa (

His to Master and Own is the fifth book in the Miami Masters series. Alessa has had these submissive cravings for a while now, and she finally works up the courage to try out a club to see if she can find a Dom to satisfy her needs. Sean is curious and a little upset to find a close friend exploring her needs in an unsafe way, and he takes it upon himself to try to help her. Starting with counseling, they meet and talk about her needs, and soon they develop an intense complete power exchange rel ...more

I am always excited when I see a new book by BJ Wane, and for it to be a new series, is especially exciting. While this is an ongoing saga in a series and has many of the main characters from the previous books, this will read as a stand-alone. This will be the story of Sean Bates and Alessa Alexander.

Each of the seven, now grown men in their thirties, originally met at a youth camp for juvenile delinquents, and each with a different backstory, but the one thing they

Her Lessons in Trust

The 5th book in this magnificent Miami Masters series was an amazing read by the inimitable BJ Wane. No one writes BDSM like she does, honest and true with great empathy in all the characters of each book. Each book has different issues around trust and inadequacies that we can all relate to! The storylines always flow perfectly and are so beautifully written with intrigue as well as dark secrets, and guilt in the characters past. I just love each and everyone of them.

I am voluntarily writing this review for this book I received through Booksprout’s arc.
Sean decides to go out to the boat with his friends even though he did not have a play partner. It’s been awhile that he found a sub he wanted to spend time with. All his friends have managed to meet their subs and are extremely happy. Meanwhile there is a Dom out there that is taking things as far as assault at the clubs. Sean told his friend that he will watch the club in Coral Springs. Alessa is a nurse and

His to Master and Own is the fifth book in the Miami Masters series. It's finally time for Sean's story and what a story it is! This story is centered around Sean Bates, a psychologist, who wants a committed relationship in his BDSM world. Sean is losing interest in the BDSM lifestyle and feels that on the yacht that he is the odd man out. The criminal has still not been found yet who has been abusing women in different BDSM clubs and the owner of Dominion asks Sean to keep his eye out as its no ...more

His to Master and Own is the 5th book in the Miami Masters series.

There are 7 men in this series that met over 20 years ago. They are “The Gang of 7” When they were all 15 and in a juvenile camp together. They are all now grown and they have grown from that experience and all best friends. They all play hard together (not with each other) but with their women. Each of the Miami Masters can be read as a standalone but the whole series is out so why would you read only one! Here is the series rea

This series by BJ Wane is proving to be just as good as all the others, I really like these characters. Although this is the fifth in the series the book can be read as a standalone but my advice is read them all in order, it will enhance your enjoyment. The back story is about 7 Doms in their late 30s who met at a summer camp set up for teenage boys who have gone off the rails, due to poor family circumstances. Here they received discipline and direction and they also bonded so that 20 years la ...more

Shelves: erotica
While I enjoyed much of His to Master and Own, especially Alessa's recognition and admission that what she wanted and needed was a TPE (total power exchange) relationship, not that the term is ever used. Sean has long wanted the same thing, but didn't think he would ever find it. However, this leads to a major ethical lapse on Sean's part. He sees Alessa as a patient and then without formally severing that connection, he begins a sexual relationship with her. He is a psychologist, and as such, p ...more

I must say that I am an avid fan of this series and have enjoyed reading each and every book, however, this one caught me off guard. I felt the author BJ Wane took some creative license where none should have been taken. Alessa is a patient of Sean's before their sexual relationship starts and while I have no real issue with this I was saddened to see that he did not formally end the doctor/patient relationship before starting the sexual one. There is so much trust a person has to put into a psy ...more

His To Master and Own is the 5th book in this hot and sexy series. While it can be read as a standalone, I suggest reading the series in order to get the most from it. Sean is a psychologist and a sexy Dom. Something painful in his past leads him to need total control. Alessa is a nurse who grew up in foster care and had abandonment issues. She feels like something is missing in her life and decides to explore BDSM to help find it. When Sean and Alessa get together their lives are turned both up ...more

Depressed by seemingly all his friends finding long term relationships, our hero Sean despairs of ever finding his own match.

And that could be the plot summary of any number of romance books ever written. What sets this one apart from many of the others is our hero's special needs, if you will. He doesn't want just a vanilla relationship, but a D/S relationship, making his search that much more complicated.

Fortunately, there is a solution for every problem and her name is Alessa, our heroine. Bo

Alessa is starting to dip her toes in the BDSM community, but she thinks that she needs to be in a total control relationship. The first two doms she scenes with don't offer her what she needs and she is feeling that she is not going to get what she needs. Sean sees her two attempts and is concerned about her. He suggests that she sees him as a psychiatrist to help her work out what she needs. Alessa has major trust issues after a life of being moved from one foster home to the next. Sean has th ...more

This book was delicious

I am a big fan of BJ Wane and her Miami Masters series and His to Master and Own is a wonderful addition. This book reads well as a stand alone but I think having read the previous books you get even more out of it because of the appearances of the secondary characters.
Sean and Alissa have both been in the previous books but it's not till this story that they go from acquaintances to do much more. Sean's dominant caring nature is exactly what Alessa needs and longs for. Al

This was an interesting read, even if i felt a little unsatisfied at the end because I wasn't sure either of the characters got what they were looking for in their partner. Sean a Dominant, has been feeling a little off lately as he can't seem to find what he requires, a total TPE relationship. For Alessa she wants a proper dominant man and thinks she wants to give up all control, however as we go through the book she doesn't ever get to that point with this relationship.

Have you been following this series? If not, you should be. The books are certainly HOT. I really enjoyed Sean and Alessa’s story. I really liked how it was a view of a relationship with stricter control. It has the sizzle factor and some of the angst that Ms. Wane is known for.
But for this book, I did have one complaint.

The one who can help everyone but himself - or so it seems. Sean, a psychologist and Dom, craves absolute control voluntarily given over a woman, but knows it is almost impossible to find a woman to be willing to go to such extremes.
Alessa - we already know her as best friend of Krista - craves to give up control, but is new to the BDSM lifestyle. Asking Sean to introduce her not only to the lifestyle, but also show her what it means to give up all control, it unsettles Sean. Could she be the on

His To Master And Own is the fifth book in the super, steamy Miami Masters series by the also super hot BJ Wane! So far, this series has been a sultry ride through Miami’s waters on a mega-yacht equipped for naughty fun with new couples in every book that aren’t afraid to live it up, and there is always a dash of drama to spice things up.

This time, it’s shrink Sean’s turn, as he and Alessa discover what it’s like to navigate a true M/s relationship. (That’s Master and slave for all of you newbie

Sean is the observant one among his 7 "brothers" who has become jaded with the BDSM lifestyle believing he won't find a woman who will submit to his need for total control in a relationship. Alessa is a friend to the group who suffers from rejection but want a submissive lifestyle where the man has total control. Her and Sean are a perfect match each finding that the extreme they believe they want is not actually what they need. I liked the way their relationship developed and they each got thei ...more

There are so many things that I love about this series. There is a consistency with characters in that you have them dropping into each other's stories, each book is completely standalone, they cater to a range of BDSM levels and interests and there is usually a little drama thrown in. So, yes, I really enjoyed this book. However, the side drama in this book felt more added on rather than an inherent part of the story. Yes, it's mentioned throughout but (without giving spoilers) was wrapped up o ...more

The relationship between the two main characters evolves from concerned Dom and struggling submissive to friends with BDSM benefits to lovers in a BDSM relationship. It took time but it was believable. I did have a hard time with the yacht scenes. I would have thought that might be more difficult for someone just starting out. A panic scenario somewhere in the book would have added to the story. The constant mention of abuse at the various clubs was never addressed so that was disappointing. Sti ...more

This is book five of wonderful continuing series. Can be read as standalone. This is Sean and Alessa's story. Sean is a psychologist and a dom. When he sees Alessa in a scene at a club he sees how dissatisfied she is. He knows he needs to help her. Alyssa is submissive and is just star to try the club scene.
This book is different than the others as it involves a complete power exchange relationship where Sean has total control. Loved these two together and looking forward to next book

What a great book. I have never read any by B.J. Wane before, but had read good things about her and I was not disappointed. The relationship between Sean and Alessa was well developed and although I wanted them to hurry up that is just testament to the skill of the author. The interactions between the group of men and the women is effective. The sex is hot and the insight into BDSM is not too in your face. Of course the ending is the best part and now I will be reading all the other books by th ...more
