    4.5 Stars Above the background noise came the sounds of BDSM play: the crack of a whip, a hand slapping flesh, screams and stern commands from one scene area. Just another Saturday night at the Shadowlands. DANG, THIS BOOK WAS GOOD!After all, what is not to love about a sexy, broad shouldered and dark Dom..... "You may address me as Master, Master Nolan, or Sir." His lips twitched. "My Liege or Sire will work occasionally if you're really trying ...

    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. After a failed attempt at escape almost cost Beth her life, she has finally gotten away from her sadistic husband, Kyler Stanton, who has left her badly scarred, both inside and out. Free and on her...

    ♥♥♥ 3.5 Stars ♥♥♥This story follows Beth, a woman scarred by the abuse of her monster of a husband. She is free from him but she doesn't really feel all that free. She hasn't felt like a woman in a long time. She goes to Club Shadowlands hoping to feel arousal again, but she can't seem to get past the fear of her past. That all changes when Master Nolan takes her on as his sub. ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ...

    Too bored to write a review. The book was awesome. It also had some kind of "story" unlike the other 2 books which went along the lines of...1)Dom Boy sees Sub Girl2)Sub Girl sees Dom Boy3)DB gets a hard on4)SG gets wet panties 5)DB ties and beats/teases/sexes up SG6)100 pages of kinky sex7)The End.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 al...

    Personally, I'm not a fan of this series. The only reason this book received 3 stars is because of the ending. It was fantastic! Not to mention, Ms. Sinclair is a superb erotic writer. 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...

    Posted on Under the CoversI 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 goo...

    Well, Mrs. Sinclair you are just upping your game aren’t you?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...

    This review was posted at My Secret RomanceI 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 fi...

    This is the third book in the Masters of the Shadowlands series and if possible it was the best one yet. The storyline was more complex with the added element of suspense which as a romantic suspense junkie I really enjoyed. If possible the Dom/s scenes and sex were some of the hottest ones yet...they were off the chain...errr wait there were chains involved more than once and a whole lot more. One thing Sinclair does in her stories that I like i...

    You have to love Nolan! This book was wonderful! 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...

    I can suspend my disbelief. I did it for the first book of the series and it worked like a charm, because the sex scenes were really nice. After all, it wasn't such a big deal -girl uninitiated to the scene gets thrown in, likes it, yada yada. Sure, it's unrealistic, but it's not dangerously unrealistic. However, Breaking Free is different. Beth, the main character, has been through horrible abuse in the past, and she finds it hard to submit to v...

    In a word: Intense! At times heartbreaking, this was very different than the first two books. It had a much more serious tone, as the sub in this book was viciously beaten by her husband a year prior to the beginning of the story. Nolan is described as a big, dark, scary looking quiet Dom. And he is, but he's also such a patient, good man. Very well written, definitely still pushing toward the edge of my comfort zone when it comes to the exhibiti...

    3 stars. Story is better than most erotic books. There is a lot of public nudity, sex, bondage, and pain.STORY BRIEF: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, b...

    This book was GREAT. I think when Master Z proposed his ultimatum to Beth, he may have just saved her life...in several ways which I won't spoil. I have no idea how in the world BDSM and a D/s relationship can be therapy for a abusive marriage where the woman is beaten within an inch of her life, but it sure seemed to be that way for Beth with Nolan. He taught her to trust again, to love again, to feel beautiful and sexy again, and to be happy ag...

    Another one from Cherise that I could not put down!!! I was pleasantly surprised by Nolan; He may be gruff but on the inside he is so patient and gentle in his own way. I really liked this storyline and how vulnerable Beth was and yet she was still a fighter no matter what she had been through with her husband. When she became kidnapped by him and he was able to beat her, I was on the edge of my seat waiting for Nolan to come save her... THis is ...

    Wow. I loved Breaking Free and it's in my top 5 BDSM favorites. 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 relations...

    Nolan's story did not disappoint. There is no way a girl could not just love these alpha men (Doms). Master Nolan turned out to be very compassionate & caring in contrast to his hard exterior. Early in the story he discovers that he longs to have a life partner not just bdsm partnership. Taking Beth as challenged request from Master Z to help her overcome a very painful past that is inhabiting her ability to satisfy her needs. Master Nolan proves...

    By far, my favorite Shadowlands couple. I mean, that's the way everyone should say I love you, if you ask me.

    4.5 stars out of 5.0 stars"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 thr...

    Wow props to Beth in this book. She was married to a sadistic man who beat her black & blue & tried to destroy her spirit. After escaping his clutches she moves to Tampa and signs up to join the Shadowlands as it's in a BDSM lifestyle that she truly feels like a woman.Problem is her husband has made her bury her feeling so deep that she is struggling at the club to be aroused by any of the Doms she has met, as she only lets less Dominant men top ...

    This is probably the most intense book so far. You have a woman that was in an abusive D/s relationship that while she eventually got out of it, it did mess with her a little mentally on what worked for her and what didn't. An outside person having to watch that would have a hard time. Thats where the story starts focusing on how her new dom is going to help her overcome that mental obstacle. I enjoy reading BDSM stories that delve a little into ...

    This is the 3rd in the series and they keep getting better and better. I wouldn't have thought it possible. I gobbled this one up in a day because I COULD NOT put it down. The scenes in the club still intrigue me and let me just say I'm releived none of our characters are into the true BDSM PAIN. The dungeon scenes scare me. In previous books Nolan came across as this very intense, cold, didn't want to get involved with anyone kind of person, but...

    Cherise Sinclair is an erotic romance force to be reckoned with. With every book she sucks me in to the story until I can't turn the pages fast enough--and that's even though some of the subject material is uncomfortable for me. I'm not personally a fan of scenes where the heroine is punished/humiliated, but the Doms in Sinclair's books are so damn hot and good at what they do, and she carefully balances the harsher side of BDSM with an aching te...

    Breaking Free by Cherise SinclairNo ‘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 hers...

    This is my favorite book of this series so far!!! Nolan is so HOT & at the same time shows much compassion while remaining in control of Beth, the sub he's assigned to. In my opinion he would be the perfect Dom! Always thinking of his subs insecurities but pushing right at the comfort level patiently!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 h...

    Again, I'm way in the minority here...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 wi...
