Master Marcus, Sir
There’s no doubt about it, Make Me, Sir is the book that proves Cherise Sinclair is more than merely an erotic romance author. Is it hot? Hell yeah, but it’s also a deeply emotional, compelling story delving into the horrific world of human trafficking.

***3.5 All About Master Marcus Stars***

Overall, story wise this was my favorite of the series so far. It's setting up a suspense element that will carry over into the next few books. What was introduced here, I thoroughly enjoyed.

This book was ALL about Master Marcus for me. A gentleman Dom....



Sexy demands with a sophisticated southern twang....



He was aggressive yet mindful, possessive yet gentle, honest and intuitive and I was defenseless to every one of his charms.

Gabi, on the other hand.....

Another wonderful addition to the Shadowlands series. I liked the longer length of this story, the mystery involved, the spunky 'brattiness' of Gaby and of course, Master Marcus. You really can see Sinclair's growth as an author in this book. It's more complex, has good subplots and the characters have more depth. And of course, it's exciting that she left the door open for more stories to spin off from this one.

For me, the one thing that 'makes' Cherise's books is the way she portrays her doms.

I honestly think this is Ms. Sinclair's best book. The plot and character interaction were more developed in this book than they have been in any other. I enjoyed the story very much, and highly recommend to fans of erotic romance w/BDSM elements.

Hold on, I’ll need a moment.

I’m still a puddle of goo after reading this book! MAKE ME, SIR is Master Marcus’s book and wow, where can I get me one of those?

Cherise Sinclair delivers yet another book that surpasses and goes beyond all my expectations! Never would have I imagined to read a story that uses the sensual allure of BDSM to coax an emotional recovery from a character quite like this.

Sinclair really goes above and beyond what most authors would do to accompli

This book is delightful! Gabi is a social worker with very little BDSM experience when she volunteers to play decoy in Shadowlands in order to help her kidnapped friend. Too bad she has to play the "bratty" sub in order to get the kidnappers attention. Even worse, her minimal experience in BDSM could never have prepared her for Master Marcus' intensity.

Marcus hates bratty submissives, especially when their brattiness is just for show. When Master Z assignes a new trainee

Favourite quote from this book "100,000 sperm and you were the fastest"

I have issues with restraint. So many issues that this book was bought on PDF to read on my kindle (which is a pain in the ass by the way) but it was worth it! I noticed a change in Sinclairs writing in master of the abyss. The writing was less short story-like and more like a fully fleshed out novel. I have loved every single one of her books but these

This book was excellent in so many levels.

First we have Gabi, undercover agent for the FBI at the Shadowlands Club. She is posing as a trainee, but her job is to be the most rebellious and irreverent trainee the Club has ever seen. So she gets to say hilarious insults.
“I can't believe out of one hundred thousand sperm, you were the fastest!”

Sometimes even stupid insults, that are all the more hilarious.
“That's a dumbass idea. You're a dumbass. Even Jesus thinks you're a dumdass.”

I've been a fan of Ms. Sinclair since I read her first Shadowland's title. I've enjoyed all of her books; this is definitely my favourite. I wasn't sure what the book was going to cover, but I figured it would feature a stubborn sub since it was titled, "Make Me, Sir". The sassy sub kept me laughing throughout the book.

Gabi definitely comes across as a confused and stubborn sub. The reasons for her mixed signals are apparent to the reader. To the doms, not so much. I found it amusing as her beha

My favorite story! The plot is deeper and darker than the previous stories and all our favorite couples seem more involved and show up ore often.

Gabrielle is a victim counselor and has volunteered to go undercover for the FBI. Female Subs have been disappearing from clubs, never to be found again. Until one of them manages to escape and alert authorities that she had been kidnapped to be sold into slavery. Now Gabi's best friend, Kim, is missing.

FBI social worker Gabi played a little in clubs in college so when she volunteers to work on a case involving kidnapping of subbies, the agents take her up on it. (even though she is motivated because her friend is one of the victims).

She is assigned to play a trainee at Shadowlands. And Marcus is the new Master Trainer.

This book in the Shadowlands series was, in my opinion, the best one yet. We get in on an FBI investigation dealing in the sale of rebelious submissives. Well from the first four books in this series we know that the Shadowlands club has prime pickings for rebelious women.

Gabi, who's friend has been taken by this group of kidnappers, volunteers to go undercover as a bratty sub. Wow does she do a fabu job. The insults that spew from Gabi's mouth were hilarious! I was laughing out loud at some of

Wow. I really loved this. I've read more than a handful of Sinclair's books now and I do not love every one of them but I do love her writing and the fact that she has carved out a niche for bdsm erotica. The pacing in this book was perfect and suspenseful. The setting was, as usual, lots of fun in a bdsm-scene-so-perfect-it-should-be-considered-a-fantasy way that Sincalir has going on with her Shadowlands series. I felt for both of the main characters. The scenes were spot on and entertaining, ...more

I wasn't sure what to expect when I first picked up Make Me, Sir. We didn't know Marcus too well, and Gabi was completely new to me. And it ended up being my favorite. Even after reading the rest of the series, Make Me, Sir remains my favorite book out of all the Masters of the Shadowlands.

Best in the series so far! You just have to love Marcus!!! He was so sweet and charming, yet a super hot Dom! Gabi was great too, such a spunky personality. This book seemed a little longer with more of a story. I was happy to get to see a little more with Jessica and Master Z! Loved it!

Make Me, Sir by Cherise Sinclair

A nice and long satisfying read. This story is probably my second favorite of this series. Club Shadowlands with Master Z and Jessica still holds first place with me. These two characters, Master Marcus and Gabi, were so incredibly wonderful together. Gabi gave new meaning to the phrase ‘bratty sub’ and I loved every minute of it. Master Marcus thinks he prefers a compliant sub but that was before Gabi entered his life! Sometimes in life it’s good not to get want

Make Me, Sir the fifth installment in Cherise's Masters of the Shadowlands was another fantastic addition to the series. It's also the longest to date. So, not only does she give us another great story, but more detail, more build-up to the relationships and more time to hang out with some of the hottest, sweetest Doms I've ever read.

In this story, Marcus, Master in charge of new trainees (which seems to be the position to be in if you wanna get your D/s HEA ;}), finds himself in charge of a sas

The first five star in the series for me! Of course, there were still some parts that made me squirm and not in a good way! Throwin' around BJs is just not my idea of a turn on. And damn you, ginger root! I'll never cook Chinese food without thinking of Master Marcus...who by the way, is now tied with Master Nolan as my favorite Dom in my very limited D/s reading experience. He had a great sense of humor, which he really needed with his sub. Every time I heard , "Sir's lips twitched, then he roa ...more

Cherise Sinclair has a wonderful way of combining just the right amount of bondage and domination with romantic elements that appeal to the more "vanilla" reader. I think this is a great series for a reader who is curious about BDSM because it is very light on the edgier side of the scene--humiliation for instance.

This fifth book in the series was quite a bit longer than the others. IMO, Make Me, Sir was heavier on the romance between the oh-so-delicious Master Marcus and his stubborn trainee, G

This isn't necessarily my favorite Shadowlands book/couple, but it was the best written book in the series. The plot was strong enough to withstand the sex scenes.
Gabrielle Renard, a social worker helping the FBI on a case, came to the Shadowlands to smoke out a human trafficking operation. Master Zachary "Z" assigned Master Dom Marcus Atherton to train her and thus began their journey to self discovery on both sides.

4.5: I really loved this book. It was a great addition to this series. I loved Gabi's spunk and personality and how Marcus tended to her. I liked the suspense portion of the book as well. I LOL'd at many of Gabi's pithy insults to be bratty: Gabi to Marcus "I can't believe out of one hundred thousand sperm, you were the fastest!"

As always, nice to see the other masters and subs from this series as well.

“Impertinent submissive,” Raoul snapped, and his dark brown eyes turned mean. “Nothing new for this one. You're doing a lousy job of bringing her to heel, Marcus.”
“Bring me to heel? Like I'm a dog?” Without thinking, Gabi instinctively yanked away and snapped out, “Bite me.”
