Review: MASTERING HER SENSES by Laura Kaye!

MASTERING HER SENSES - Review Tour banner    

Decadent… Sensual… Forbidden…

12 Masters. 12 Desires. 12 Fantasies Come to Life. Meet the Masters of Blasphemy…

My Review: I'm smack dab in the middle when it comes to my feelings on this one. I can definitely say it wasn't as good as the previous book in the series, which I totally loved. But this wasn't bad, just.. okay. 

My biggest issue was that the big climax of the story was the plot equivalent of the "big hill" on a kiddie roller coaster. Or maybe a speed bump. It was such a huge let down. The rest of the story was hot, and considering what issues Quinton and Cassia were working through, I'm sure this author could create some better drama. In fact, I know she can, because the other books I've read by her were awesome.

Now to what I loved. BDSM is my kink of choice when it comes to romance/erotica, so I have read my fair share. And Laura Kaye does it very well. It's all safe, consensual, and great care is taken on both sides. I also like how the characters use different aspects of the lifestyle to help them work through issues - in this case, Cassia's phobia after her accident. It was all so well done, which does help redeem this book in my eyes.

Cover Lovin': Definitely hot.

Recommendation: While reading the previous books isn't required or absolutely necessary... you should read them because they are amazing.

Final Rating: THREE POINT FIVE out of FIVE (3.5/5)!! Alas, I had to knock this down some because the storyline fell flat around 80% in. But this author still deserves a read, and I will be eagerly awaiting the next book in the series!

Happy Reading!

About MASTERING HER SENSES (Blasphemy #2, 2/21/17):

12 Masters. Infinite fantasies. Welcome to Blasphemy…

He wants to dominate her senses—and her heart…

Quinton Ross has always been a thrill-seeker—so it’s no surprise that he’s drawn to extremes in the bedroom and at his BDSM club, Blasphemy, where he creates sense-depriving scenarios that blow submissives’ minds. Now if he could just find one who needs the rush as much as him…

When an accident leaves Cassia Locke with a paralyzing fear of the dark, she’ll try anything to get help. Ready to fight, she knows just who to ask for help—the hard-bodied, funny-as-hell Dom she’d always crushed on—and once stood up.

Quinton is shocked and a little leery to see Cassia, but he can’t pass up the chance to dominate the alluring little sub this time. Introducing her to sensory deprivation becomes his new favorite obsession, and watching her fight fear is its own thrill. But when doubt threatens to send her running again, Quinton must find a way to master her senses—and her heart.
