This, the third installment of the Masters of the Shadowlands series is every bit as good as the first two, and in my opinion, even better. I’m a huge fan of the Romantic Suspense genre, so I really enjoyed the action/adventure aspect to this story.

This one had a few plot twists and a fuller romance. The connection between the heroes was more pronounced and there were the magic "L" words after all their shit was done so I loved everything about ...more
However, the public sharing, public humiliation, group menages, and sadistic violence (side plot) that took place in this book went beyond what I'm comfortable with or enjoy reading. Needless to say, I'm not sure I'll be continuing the series.
I'm grateful The Dom's Dungeon and Mountain Masters series were my firs ...more
I feel like I should be addressing Cherise with Master because she really is a master storyteller. Each book in her Masters of the Shadowlands series gets better than the one before.
In BREAKING FREE, Master Nolan, the darkly seductive contractor finds a lovely submissive in Beth.
However, after two years of being abused by her sadist husband, Klyer Stanton, Beth finds it difficult to trust someone completely and with good reason! Upon her skin, Beth wears the trauma tha ...more
UGH. Most annoying shit ever. In the first book of the series, there was an overuse of "kitten." I didn't read the second book yet, so I hav ...more
Now first I have to say, for most people, people that have no internal understanding of the BDSM lifestyle this particular book in the series, they would not understand at all!
The heroine is a domestic abuse victim. She was previous married to a Dom that got off on inflicting sever pain (Broken bones, cutting) on his wife in order to get off himself. In the defense of the lifestyle I have to say that this is not common but it does hap ...more
Genres: Adult, Erotica, Romance, Suspense
This one has some great and very well written action/suspense and fantastic adult steamy romance.
Both MC's, Beth and Nolan are truly awesome characters. I couldn't get enough of them.
From the setting of Florida, to the BDSM world build and the two amazing main characters, you will be entranced.
Beth has some very dangerous secrets. You will find yourself rooting for her, sometimes wanting to hug her and other time ...more
I think when the books have woman who come with baggage, are the ones I like the best. They're more emotional and intense for me, which is just what I like in my reads.
Beth, on the run from her sadistic, psycho husband, is a submissive to the core. She has been gone for a few months and thinks she may have finally found a place to call home...for now. Needing to be dominated and feel like a woman, she finds the bdsm club, Shadowlands and joins. It's the ...more
Beth was a submissive – liked being dominated. She married Kyler a sadist. He burned her, crushed her fingers and left scars from whips and knives all over her body. She ran away and is in hiding. She provides gardening services. She comes to the Shadowlands bdsm club. She has a long list of what she will not accept from Doms, but she is never sexually aroused by them. Master Z a ...more
Beth is a difficult sub at first, but for good reason. She was physically abused(to the extreme) by her last dom/ex husband Kyler. She ran away from him leaving California and coming to Tampa. She ends up at the Shadowlands. Due to her former abuse, she finds it very hard to trust any dom, let a lone feel any pleasure at all. Master Z finds this upsetting(love me some Master Z :D) and gives Beth an ultimatum: Try with any dom of his choosing(reall ...more
Very well written, definitely still pushing toward the edge of my comfort zone when it comes to the exhibitionism and a few other smaller details. But I see t ...more
What an amazing story about a damaged, abused, hurt sub named Beth and how a strong and serious dom named Nolan, tries to help her and heal her. I could feel the connection between the two of them from their first encounter. Hot and sexy with a touch of suspense. Loved it!
For those of you that are confused about BDSM or turned off by it, this book details a positive Dom/sub relationship and how BDSM can be used to transform and heal ...more
"Great characters, wonderful story. Whether you're into BDSM or not, this is the book to read! Hard to put down!"
Cherise Sinclair knew how to twist your emotions into a giant, tangled knot where you hurt along with the heroine (and root for her all the way) or melt at the gentleness and understanding exhibited by the big and strong hero who knew what she needed.
Nolan King is an irresistible hero, especially when seen through the heroine's eyes. Irresistible not because ...more

No ‘third times a charm’ requirement for the third book in this series. They have all been charms to me and I’ve enjoyed reading them.
Master Nolan…what to say…”The man simply radiated force, his bearing supremely self-confident.” and “With him, dominant was more than a term; it was who he was to the bone.”
Beth…God was a strong woman. To have gone through HELL and kept on going. To have put herself out there again and not given up all HOPE. (view spoiler)[To have ...more
Beth had an excruciating past with her husband/Master who she is on the run from. She has so many physical & emotional scars that I have to praise her for even attempting to stay in the life ...more
I was in the mood for some good old fashion hetro BDSM, extra hot, so I took the advice of just about everyone here at GoodReads and read this book by Cherise Sinclair. It was indeed hot, the BDSM intense, the Dom a sexy beast... BUT, I just couldn't get past the "club" and "party" aspects of the setting. Public sex freaks me the fuck out. And since the female MC didn't trust the male MC enough to be alone with him, all their sexual encounters were in public ...more
Beth is utilising the facilities of Club Shadowlands but is not really finding the Master she needs. Nolan back from overseas recently has been a bit out of touch with the goings on at the Club.
One night he wanders around and sees Beth having a very uneventful session with a sadistic Dom. It is not long afterwards that Z pairs them up and she, Beth, begins to fulfill her potential.

I met my dearheart when vacationing in the Caribbean. Now I won’t say it was love at first sight. Actually since he stood over me, enjoying the view down my swimsuit top, I might have been a tad peeved—as well as attracted. Bu ...more
