The desire that exploded in Mastered continues its conflagration in Dominated—from the New York Times bestselling author of the Surrender Trilogy.
To save her, he had to betray her...
In Drake’s shadowy world, his enemies would exploit any weakness he had in order to bring him to his knees, and so he’s never allowed himself to care about anyone...never exhibited any vulnerability, and it made him a force to be reckoned with. Until Evangeline—his angel. A woman who slipped past his defenses like no one had ever managed. She was his to protect and ultimately, to do that, he had to do the unthinkable and drive the only good thing in his world away.
But he will stop at nothing to get her back...
Devastated and destroyed, Evangeline doesn’t know what made Drake turn on her in such a shocking manner. She only knows she’ll never be the same. He once freed her from all her inhibitions, only now she is a prisoner to never-ending pain. But when Drake finds her again, she realizes there is more to his world than she ever imagined, and she must decide if she can once more trust—and submit—to the man who holds her wounded heart in his hands. And he must convince her of just how far he’ll go to regain her love and forgiveness.
This is an Adult romance novel recommended for ages 18+ due to sexual content and mature subject matter.
Dominated is the sequel to Mastered and we find out that Drake finally finds Evangeline in a run down hotel. Things are different after his hurtful words to Evangeline that caused her to leave him. So at every turn he treats her as if she is glass and about to break. Evangeline is at a place that she wants things to go back to how they were before that one horrible night happened. Things get better but trust will be tested between Drake and Evangeline. It will be a battle and at the end they will either notice if they are meant to be together or separated.
Dominated was a roller coaster ride. Drake goes from lacking that love he first felt to searching for a new spark with Evangeline. It was such a emotional ride. I didn't know whether he will ever trust Evangeline (vise versa). He was so afraid she will betray him. It was a nice change to the story and I loved how he comes to conclusions that even if she had betrayed him he would still forgive her, no matter what. He realized he cannot live without her and his life is miserable without her. As for Evangeline, it was great reading how she will forgive herself. Knowing there is a man that will love her no matter the circumstance is a great feel. This felt so real as love is indeed a work in process arrangement.
I loved Dominated as much as Mastered! Its such a great sequel and fans should not worry. With a badass boss and woman who will do whatever it takes to satisfied him, this read will have you fanning yourself. Although it contains extremely sexy time, the plot and story was very interesting and very real. There are some sad heart wrenching moments but every love story has its moments until the couple can see that there is full trust between the two. Added with some great long lasting friendships between Evangeline and Drakes, this is a perfect story to fall in love with. A big adopted family of sorts. Trust me, add Mastered to your TBR list and you will enjoy this ride.
