    Well, since this book is pretty short, the review will be pretty short too...

    Here are just some basic things you need to know, and some of my reactions to them...

    Master Z is a mind reader :D

    Yup, he can tell what emotions you are feeling, sometimes even your thoughts! He is the pefect master and knows what every sub needs and wants. And I was just about to say: Where can I get some of that?, but then thought... Ummm, I really DON'T want a guy who'll know every single thing I'm thinking/feeling ALL THE TIME Photobucket sure, it's good to have that ability while in bed, but outside of it? No thanks :D

    Jessica is just an ordinary woman who stumbled into a BDSM club one night, she knows nothing about the lifestyle, but that same night she manages to have sex with the owner of the club :D Lucky girl I'd say :D But then I thought about it a bit longer, and if it was just an ordinary one night stand it would be ok, but going into kinky with someone you know nothing about? Hmmm. I'd have to seriously trust that person to go into it, and no matter how seductive his voice is or how he reads her mind, it was just a bit too much, the same night she was introduced into the lifestyle she had bondage sex with a stranger :D Well hell OK, I get even that, but

    Jessica Randall managed to destroy her car in an accident finding herself alone in the middle of nowhere, Florida. It was night, and it was raining - I mean tropical rain. After lots of walking she found a big lonely house where she was hoping she would get help. She did, but not the kind she expected.

    The house was known as Club Shadowlands - a BDSM club. Jessica having no clue about it - she was given a paper with rules to read, but she did not bother - stumbled right in the middle of the party with all BDSM flavors. Luckily for her the club owner known as Master Z took her under his wing. Do you remember counselor Deanna Troi from Star Trek: The Next Generation?
    She Betazoid and as such was partially telepathic: she could read emotions. I can only guess Master Z was Betazoid as well because he had exactly the same ability.

    Initially Jessica did not accept the lifestyle telling herself she was an independent professional woman and an accountant
    (apparently being an accountant is incompatible with being a submissive), but Master Z took interest in her and when he took interest in somebody he could be very persuasive.

    Despite the fact that the majority of the story take place in a BDSM club, most of them are quite mild with only brief glances and hints at more extreme scenes: Jessica was still a beginner. In my opinion, this part was done tastefully enough. The story was also quite good.

    The characters were quite good, if you ignore the supernatural ability of Master Z.
    Him falling for Jessica was a little abrupt, but not insta-love abrupt. All in all I would say everything put together warrant slightly less than 4 stars. In any way it was good enough for me to think about reading the next book of the series.

    Every once in a while a book comes along that grabs at your the literary brain cells. That you read and immediately want to read again, that while you're reading it, you can't put it down, you don't want it to end, you want to shout to everyone you know that they MUST, MUST read this book! You think about where the story is going to go next when you aren't sitting down holding it in your hands... well this is one of those books for me... one of those authors actually. Everything I've read by Cherise Sinclair (I recently finished the Mountain Masters series), and I do mean EVERYTHING has done this to me! I put one book down, only to start the next one! I've rounded a new literary corner and the sex is HOT!

    Okay, I'm vanilla girl living in a vanilla world, plain and simple. I enjoyed Paranormal Romance.. then I moved a little further outside of my vanilla world and stepped into Paranormal Erotica... I thought I'd never get enough of that... then I found a group of ladies on Goodreads that read *Erotica*... *GASP* I picked up some pretty good recomendations from them, then I saw where they were talking about Cherise Sinclair and her Mountain Masters and Masters of Shadowland and I felt wicked just reading the blurbs! I couldn't understand why someone would want to read about such things as BDSM. There couldn't be any love or real romance, no HEA, just people torturing each other, or controling each other... right? RIGHT?


    Enter Jessica, whose car breaks down in a storm, she walks and comes upon an estate where she askes to use the phone... one situation leads to another and she finds warmth, dry clothes... and Master Z. What she's stumbled into is a private BDSM club. Couriosity... ahh yes, couriosity is what keeps Jessica hanging around just until she can get her car towed out of the ditch. Master Z takes good care of Jessica, and finds she is a true Submissive and now isn't it just lucky that he is the purrrrfect Dom? There are a lot of scenes, and Jessica is scared, terrified... and well, turned on by it all... you'll have to read the rest to she how it goes. No spoilers here!

    But I must tell you, this isn't for the faint of heart. It's raw and powerful. It will make you blush, laugh out loud, cringe, but I'll bet you won't be able to put it down!

    Go on, I dare you.

    ...give me a day to recuperate...

    After a few days to recuperate, and thanks to some absolutely wonderful pansexual BDSM to read, I get back to this here.

    Where to start? A vanilla woman drives her car into a ditch in the middle of the night in a thunderstorm, and enters a BDSM club to get help. This reads a bit like the great opening scenes of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, with a Jessica instead of a Janet and Brad, and a Sir Z instead of a Frank N. Furter. While this book stays rather bizarre, it doesn't stay as nicely bizarre as that classic movie.

    First off, screeching plotholes: such a big club doesn't of course have a phoneline, not downstairs, not on groundlevel, not in the apartment above, from where a friendly human being could actually call a taxi to take stranded Janet, errr, Jessica home. And of course not one of the many guests has a mobile either. Yeah, right.

    Instead the lady is blackmailed into signing a contract (which would be quite invalid right there) and then sexually assaulted by the clubowner. She's drugged with alcohol and left to her own devices to walk around a fetish club, with guests who of course all are happy with having complete vanillas run around all wide-eyed. Where she then earns herself a punishment because she stopped a scene. Yeah, right. What bullcrap.

    I'll not go into this any further, a lot of it angered me beyond words. E.g. the fact that this was terminally sexist, that despite protestations to the contrary there was little SSC in this, and that I think this may have been something E.L. James read for research. Spare yourself!


    This sums up my reaction:

    This was a fun introduction to the Masters of the Shadowlands series...

    If you follow my updates, you might have seen my surprise when I discovered that I had already read this book... I figured this out within the first few sentences and was more than a little surprised... Not that I had read a book that was published four years ago, but that I could barely remember anything about it...

    Here is what I could remember:
    After a car crash, a young woman takes shelter in a strange house,
    Which turns out to be a BDSM club,
    And they let her in,
    She meets a charming Dom who happens to own the place,
    She explores her sexuality,
    She was a secret sub all along,
    Charming Dom realizes he has met his match with her,
    Happily Ever After...

    ...Basically, it sounded like every other BDSM Club book I've ever read.

    So now that I've re-read this book, what can I add to my previously fuzzy memory? Nothing really.

    I had forgotten how neurotic and obnoxious the main character, Jessica was...
    She really didn't have any character development. She never really overcame (or attempted to overcome) her body issues - He made her feel pretty, which is a start... But it's not the basis for a personality.
    I forgot that her charming Dom Master Z had the whole Mind Reader thing going on...

    ...And I was reminded why this book fuzzed out in my memory.

    On the plus side, this was a fairly subdued and gentle introduction for the fuzzy-handcuff Erotica fans.
    I'll probably pick up the rest of the series at some point with the hope that his book was intended to be a gentile segue into Club Shadowlands, and that the subsequent books with have something more creative and substantial to offer this (admittedly jaded) reader of BDSM Erotica.

    3.5 Stars

    Your expectations going into this book will make or break it for you. Seriously. If you expect beautiful literature or in depth character development or rational human behavior you’re going to be pissed. You’re going to scream things like this:

    “Haven’t you ever seen a scary movie? Do NOT go in there!”

    But if you go into this book expecting a fully formed BDSM fantasy you may end up screaming things more along these lines:

    “Yes. Yes. Give it to me. YES!”

    Because I went into this prepared for a fantasy I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered how readable it was. No really. From the very first page it was better than I expected it to be. The writing was good, the female lead likeable (minus a few irritating moments where she randomly balked) and the male lead…well…let’s just say that I’d let him tie me up anytime.


    For such a short book there was also a great buildup of sexual tension between the main characters. It was so seductively drawn out that I found myself transforming from a 28 year old woman into a total creeper, prone to waggling my eyebrows and overusing the word “Giggity”.

    It was also quite funny at times and the ending was sweet but definitely not a perfectly tied up (giggity) HEA. If you’re looking for a light read or an introduction into consensual BDSM this book may be just the thing for you.

    Actual rating 2.5 stars.

    Although I didn’t give this book many stars I would not want to discourage anyone from this series. This might be the softest of all the installments, the stories do get better after this first one, and they are definitely worth reading.

    The plots in this series are maybe somewhat standard, and the writing isn’t fantastic, although still good. However, the content, the BDSM relationships are wonderful and powerful.

    This book in particular is light, short, and a perfect introduction into the BDSM world. I say light, because there is no angst or deeply moving emotional turmoil. Also, being short, we don’t get to know the characters that in deep, however we do get to know more about their development through tidbits in the other installments. Which, incidentally, it is pretty great to still be connected to and reminded of the characters that we get to know in each novel.

    I feel the need to point out that this series might be my favorite of its genre, if only because of the way the BDSM life is reflected here. Cherise Sinclair has a very natural and healthy way to depict this world and just because of that I love her books. They made me want, wish and hope. They are even a learning experience in many ways.

    I am definitely addicted to this series and I am planning on reading every single installment that comes out. I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone interested in BDSM.

    P.S: I am obsessed with Cherise Sinclair’s author’s note.

    This book is fiction, not reality and, […] You, my darlings, live in the real world and I want you to take a little more time than the heroins you read about. Good Doms don’t grow on trees and there’s some strange people out there. So while you’re looking for that special Dom, please, be careful.”

    If Only (Masters of the Shadowlands #8) - 4 stars

    This was like being Alice in a very twisted Wonderland...

    Holy hells was that steamy!

    If your looking for a short, hot and entertaining read, look no further. Club Shadowlands pulled me in and kept me in a heat-filled daze. The writing was easy, the characters were interesting and this book was a perfect way to take a break from my depressing and masochistic reading.

    Rough night, Kitten?

    *sigh* I can never resist a man who calls his girl Kitten.
    Master Z was one of my favorite characters. He was so sexy and dominant but could be really sweet. And, praise the gods, a man who actually knows what he wants and goes after it. There was none of that maybe she wants me... no she doesn't... this is only a one time thing... yes... no... maybe garbage.
    Perfect combination if you ask me.

    Why the hell couldn't I be the one to have a shitty night and stumble upon his club and gorgeousness?
    Master Z

    I really liked Jessica. She was sweet and so innocent it was hilarious. She didn't get on my nerves or bore me with her endless insecurities, so that's always a plus.

    This story was like an easy, pleasurable read without all the unnecessary drama wrapped up in a sexy packaging.

    3.5 stars delectable stars
