I have to say, I have read a whole lot of BDSM erotica. For some reason, if written properly I get the hot warm and fuzzy when a great Dom is written. Thank you Cherise Sinclair for getting the elements of this lifestyle correct. Because I have to say, after reading this book, I now want to be a member of Shadowlands!
An honest to god sub at heart, I could see the totally burning need to be controlled by Jessica. It was written with ease. The way she stumbled upon the real woman she really was, and how damn lucky for her that it is the owner of Shadowlands that takes a liking to her. I have come to find that it is really hard for me to write a review on a book I really like. I really don't feel that I get out the exactly how good the book is, and people disregard it.
For me, I think the basic thing that drew me into this book, was the build. It started out so simple. A woman runs off the road in the rain, and heads to the nearest place which happens to be a huge mansion that doubles as one of the most exclusive BDSM clubs in the nation. For any inexperienced person, that would be one of the most frightening things to visually see. It is like a living breathing, dungeon on display for just any passerby to see. For someone like me that is a true sub, it would be like one big giant playroom. I wouldn't know where to start first. However, Jessica the female lead was not just taken aback, she didn't read the `rules' and had no clue what she was getting into.
For me I loved that Jessica wasn't just a cut and dry female that happen to dig being controlled. She had issues, she was full figured, and being a full figured woman to be stripped in public for the first time would be horrible.Read more ›
While I didn't start with this book when I began reading the series, I have to say if I had, I definitely would have been hooked. First off, while I have to say that it is a graphic novel with smoking hot sex scenes, the plot and characters lead to a much deeper story. The relationship between Master Z and Jessica gives the reader a wonderfully insightful look into a world most find taboo. From the beginning Ms. Sinclair hooked me in and kept me wanting more until the very last page. While Master Z is sensitive and attentive to Jessica and her needs, he's also tough and stubborn to the end. Jessica is a wonderful character that takes the reader along on her emotional journey of self growth and exploration. If you're looking for something with edge and grit, but want a 'real' plot written with tasteful class, Club Shadowlands is a perfect choice. I highly recommend not only this book, but the entire series.

I have been meaning to write a review of this book for a long time for amazon readers so now I have the opportunity. Masters of The Shadowlands by Cherise Sinclair is one of my all time favorite books. Not only do you get Master Z's story but you get Master Dan's also. So the price is actually for two books. That are extremely well worth it, trust me.
Jessica couldnt belive it when she hydroplaned off into a ditch and stranded her car. In the middle of a tropical storm raging in Florida, chances were good that she wasnt getting unstuck any time soon. So she headed to the nearest house she saw. Once getting there her life was going to change forever.
The moment Master Z saw her his Dom instincts were fired. He wanted her and there was something about her that he hadnt encountered in a long time.
Jessica's first venture into the world of The Shadowlands was something completely foreign and totally taboo for her. But after spending one night with Master Z, something had changed inside her. Could she let go of her inhibitions to snare the handsome Dom, or would she let her fears get the best of her.
Sinclair does a wonderful job of introducing the reader slowly to the world of bondage in Club Shadowlands. There was never any objectionable material in my eyes. Master Z was very much the alpha male and that doesnt differ much from most other romance novels. I would say to people that are hedging on the borderline about the BDSM that this story will change your mind. Cherise will suck you right in and you will be hooked and begging her for more of her Masters of The Shadowlands.
Master Dan was one of the most sought after Doms in Club Shadowlands. Handsome, strong, a great top.Read more ›
I have read my fair share of erotica books, and Ms. Sinclair's by far are the most sensual and intellectually stimulating ones I have ever read. The intensity of her characters' emotions just jumped off of the page and pulled me right in. The sex scenes were wicked hot of course , but never overshadowed the depths of the characters -- it only played to enhance their connection. These books are based in a believable reality that heightens the reader's fantasy or could even serve as a springboard to learning more about the lifestyle. The third book in the series (which is not included in this book),Breaking Free, steps away from the rubenesque heroine, but is still just as sexy and well written.
So if you are looking for BDSM erotica with heart, you need to look no further than the Shadowlands!!!
