    1.75 cheese 'n sap stars. Interview posted July 31, 2015Alter ego: Let's introduce the heroine. Baba: Oh, she is one of those. *makes frowny face*Alter ego: Huh? What do you mean?Baba: The kind of heroine who says...I don't do emotion. I don't do 'love' relationships. Well. I don't want to stereotype but it's a reaction readers would expect from a tough guy, not a woman. Come to think of it, Anne is such a tough chick. She can bring down any hard...

    5 Stars I'm going to hurt you, Ben- because this is what I told you I'd do. And because this is what you obviously want me to do." I'm not typically a fan of Domme heroines, but when it's Cherise Sinclair writing it, it'd be a sin for me not to at least attempt it. Well imagine my shock that I can now say that this may have easily been my favorite Shadowlands book yet. Of course it figures that it would be this author that will not only make fa...

    **** 4,5 stars **** "Are you going to lie there and take what I do to you?""I’m all yours, Mistress." I hardly read erotica anymore and when I do, I expect it to be excellent. And thank god, it was. This is first time for me reading this author, but if I ever wish to read some BDSM, I will definitely check other books in this series. I also have never read a BDSM book were the main dominant was a SHE, so I was a little hesitant in the beginni...

    4 “Blissful.” stars “I do love this body you’ve given me to play with,” she murmured. “Are you ready for me to start?” Mistress Anne and Benjamin are as different as night and day. She is the Domme of the Shadowlands, and known for her enjoyment in turning her males into gelatin and feared for her sadistic tendancies. A bounty hunter by day and a Mistress by night, life should be perfect.... right?!?Benjamin is a discharged Army R...

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5 STARS ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐If there is one author that never fails to mark me, it’s Cherise Sinclair. I have apprehensions, preconceived ideas even. (Don’t shoot me, I’m just human!)I couldn’t think I would enjoy a BDSM story with a Domme as the heroine but as it turned out, I was WRONG.Why? Because I read romance and erotica as an escape and I need my reads to make me feel GOOD. I need something more than just the discovery o...

    ** 4 “my tiger” STARS ** “Are you going to lie there and take what I do to you?”“I’m all yours, Mistress.” The Queen of BDSM Romance, our Cherise Sinclair, did it again.Simply beautiful... Not being a big fan of Dominatrix/submissive couples, I was worried I might not enjoy this one much...but I unexpectedly LOVED it! RECOMMENDED! “Mistress, if pain pleases you, I’m willing to give it a try.”~ BEN

    Finally the long awaited femdom book comes from Ms. Sinclair and it's a doozy. A fan of Ms. Sinclair, her gateway to BDSM books consistently tickle my fancy. Her dominants are dreamy. In this one, Mistress Anne takes the lead and she's a strict domme. Used to submissive boy toys who follow formal protocol, she tries something different when former army ranger Ben asks to submit.This book pulls me completely in and moves me. I physically hurt for ...
  • Penny
    I liked it.Originally, I though I wouldn't like this book due to the woman being the Dominant part, instead of the other way around, which is usually my preference. I though that I would loose interest. However, as I read I was able to enjoy the story much more than I though thanks to being able to connect to the characters though their vulnerabilities and moments of intimacy. Cerise Sinclair did once more a good job, giving us a story with a nic...
  • Shanny
    SOOOOOO good!!!!!!!!!!Once again, Cherise Sinclair has written a wonderful story. I really enjoy the Shadowlands series. Love the characters and getting to see glimpses of past couples from the series.She has an excellent way of explaining the BDSM lifestyle to anyone who doesn't truly understand how it works. Her male characters whether they are doms or submissives have so much character and warmth. They are strong, sensitive, protective and car...
  • Sabrina
    Ben must read. A lot. Did the man have to keep getting more attractive? Anne is a sadistic Domme at the Shadowlands and Ben is the, seemingly, vanilla guard dog. For years Ben has watched Mistress Anne come and go from the club and longed after her. Finally working up the courage he approaches her about becoming her submissive. But Anne needs a slave and Ben isn't sure he's up for the challenge. Masters of the Shadowlands will forever be one of ...
  • Aly is so frigging bored
    I'm so happy that I got over my dislike of Femdoms, or that I at least tried this book. Ben and Anne are really great and I loved catchig up with some of the others.
  • Sofia Lazaridou
    Even if I didn't like the story I think I would have given this book a 5 star rating because we see how Kim and Raoul's relationship is going through Kim's point of view. They are my favorite couple in the series and I love them so much! They have made so much progress! (Not that the other couple's haven't). I hope we will see them more. To be fair, I love all the couples in the series, but Kim and Raoul have a special place in my heart. Master Z...
  • Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog)
    There’s no better place to be than back at the Shadowlands. SERVICING THE TARGET is a book that I’ve been looking forward to since Mistress Anne stepped into one of the scenes in the previous books. She carries so much power and femininity that you can’t help but feel drawn to her. I was very much looking forward to see how Sinclair would portray her since she is a Domme who also enjoys administering pain.The hero, Ben Heugan, however is so...
  • Steph
    When Ben, Z's/the Shadowlands' "guard dog", notices Mistress Anne entering the club looking a bit worse for wear, he can't resist telling her how he feels about her dangerous job. She quickly lets him know, "... when I want your opinion about my occupation, [Benjamin,] I'll beat it out of you." His physical reaction to her comment was quite surprising. No matter, he's vanilla, she's not and she wouldn't dare mess with Z's employee.Later that even...
  • Beanbag Love
    I'm giving this one four stars even though I was annoyed by the female lead a number of times. I found her to be whiney and lacking the things I've always liked about the doms in this series. There were some great scenes, some hot scenes and even some very poignant scenes. (view spoiler)[When Anne helped Ben through his grief it actually made me cry. And love him more, of course. (hide spoiler)]There were also far too many scenes with Jessica. Sh...
  • Shayna
    Cherise Sinclair is back with her addictive, masterful, and beautiful writing in the latest addition to the Masters of the Shadowlands series, SERVICING THE TARGET. I wanted to devour and yet savor this book. I wanted to stay up all night and finish, but I didn't want it to end. Such conflicting emotions and I didn't even start. Once I began, I knew I had to take this slow. The depth of emotion that Sinclair puts in her books and in her character...
  • Dee
    Cherise certainly has a way with words. Her writing style paints a great picture and her characters are well developed. I'm all for females Dominants but had a hard time reconciling Anne's actions. Especially the fact, that her need to hurt men steamed from childhood issues. And likewise, once she overcame those issues her sadistic streak subsided. To quote Anne - "But yes, as my anger at men died, so did my enjoyment of hurting them."I was told ...

  • Steelwhisper
    Give me a few days to write a review. It won't be a happy one.
  • Catherine
    Full disclosure: this was my first time reading a BDSM book with a Domme as a central character. I'm all for intelligent, empowered woman that kick ass and make no apologies for it, so Anne, the ex-Marine, ex-cop, current skip tracer strategist, instantly seemed like someone worth reading about. Add in Ben, a combat veteran, world-renowned nature photographer, and part-time security guard, and this book had all the makings for becoming my favouri...
  • Jill Myles
    Cherise Sinclair is an auto-buy for me. What can I say? I love the particular kinda crack she deals. I really love the Shadowlands books and have devoured all of them ASAP, to the point that I pretty much put aside my own writing and curled up in bed with this book until I could read no longer.(Then I napped, but whatever!)I wasn't too sure about Mistress Anne's book. I feel like it's really hard to write a book where there's a female dominant an...
  • Charlene
    Quite honestly, I wasn't too keen on reading about a Domme...not really my thing. I should have known though, that Cherise Sinclair wouldn't let us down! This was a beautiful story...I loved Ben and Anne together. Definitely one of my favourites of the series.5 stars
  • Deb Markanton
    Cherise Sinclair's Club Shadowlands series has always been on my top ten list. Each book in the series surpasses the last with multi-layered characters and intriguing plots, steamy sex and accurately portrayed BDSM. But when I discovered Servicing The Target was about Mistress Anne and Ben I was skeptical. Mistress Anne never interested me much. From the little we saw of her in previous books she was a hard ass, scary Domme who preferred pretty b...
  • Dee
    I was really worried about this one and have put off reading it for a long time now, but glad that I finally bit the bullet!I am not a fan of female doms as I like reading about alpha males but Cherise took great care in writing this and somehow I enjoyed it, even the sex scenes where Anne was definitely the dominant. Although Ben is a sexual submissive and agrees to become Anne's slave he still somehow comes across as an alpha male. They have th...
  • Ivy Deluca
    Full review posted on Bottom LineQuite possibly my favorite Shadowlands ever. I love Ben and Anne's a great heroine. Highly recommended if you're into Dommes with a heart and alphas who are submissive in the bedroom.
  • Vee Paige
    *4.5* Loved the dynamic between the main characters in this one! It's different, but make no mistake, Ben is still alpha. Review to follow.

  • Kim
    Well I was really hoping this book would be the first Domme book that I really liked, even loved but sadly it was not. Honestly the whole Domme thing just doesn’t do anything for me and in every one I have tried the Domme was really just a bitch or she was totally unbelievable as a Domme (or an actual woman). I did like Anne at times but I did not like her as a Domme at all and well Ben was not much of a sub and certainly no slave. I have to sa...
