BDSM Erotic Romance

Her car disabled during a tropical storm, Jessica Randall discovers the isolated house where she's sheltering is a private bondage club. At first shocked, she soon becomes aroused watching the interactions between the Doms and their subs. But she's a professional woman--an accountant--and surely isn't a submissive . . . is she? 

Master Z hasn't been so attracted to a woman in years. But the little sub who has wandered into his club intrigues him. She's intelligent. Reserved. Conservative. After he discovers her interest in BDSM, he can't resist tying her up and unleashing the passion she hides within.

          I have never read a book that was of the BDSM nature. So like the main character, Jessica, I was new to this scene. However, the way Cherise wrote this book introduces it very well. You get a real sense of how BDSM works and how Master Z introduces it to new people is like he is introducing it to you. The way Cherise wrote how Master Z approaches his newest sub, Jessica, helps you image he is approaching you.
              ,I am a very visual person. I love to visualize everything I read. This was almost done easily throughout the entire book. Jessica was describe quite often. She came across in my mind a very business type of a woman that Master Z was able to open up and see her naughty side. Master's mansion, in my mind, was an amazing one. The fact that he can live there in one area and have his private club in another shows how big it is. However, it is also goes into further detail being that his private club had several rooms including a basement. The club alone is like a single story 5 room house with a basement which in terms of houses is a big house. You then add his bedroom, kitchen, living room, bathroom, lobby, and guest room you have one huge mansion. All the dom's and sub's were described very well to where you could picture each one and their flaws as a dom or sub. My only problem with descriptions was Master Z. He was never fully describe in a way that you could cast your own person for him. I never got a steady image of him in my head at any point. Everything else was describe and laid out very well but Master Z could have been done better.

           When it came to the sexual content of the book it was like you were the person being seduced or having sex. You could imagine everything happening as it happened. You could feel what Jessica felt when Master Z did something new to her. The surprise she felt when she discovered she was actually intrigued by the BDSM came out very well. It was never the same with each sexual scene. Some books tend to repeat the sexual patterns but not this one. It was always a new approach with how happened. When it came to Jessica's first punishment or first public scene it wasn't tedious or boring it was intriguing. You felt as if it was you being punished or being put on display for a public scene.

            This was a well written erotic romance. I never found anything that was repeated. I am actually quite intrigued to obtaining the rest of the series and continuing on with Jessica and Master Z's journey. To see if maybe Master Z gets describe a bit better. To see where the story goes from here. 

         RATING: 4/5


  1. If you liked Club Shadowlands you're going to love the rest of this series! It just keeps getting better and better, believe me. However, while Z and Jessica are revisited again in future stories, it's not for a major story line. After finishing the entire series I hoped Cherise Sinclair would write another novella for Z and Jess, since there's was the first, and by far, the shortest!
