FINAL DECISION: I loved the first book in this series and had high hopes for this second book. Unfortunately, I didn't feel that the relationship between Evangeline and Drake developed at all and Drake's poor treatment of Evangeline never really gets better.
THE STORY: Beginning right where the events of MASTERED ended, DOMINATED tells the story of Drake and Evangeline. Drake has devastated Evangeline with his treatment of her. Trying to protect her, Drake savaged her emotionally in front of his business rivals. Evangeline has left Drake and now Drake is determined to find her and get her to forgive him.
OPINION: I had high hopes for this book. I really loved the first book in the series and couldn't wait until this book came out to complete Drake and Evangeline's story. Unfortunately, I was deeply disappointed. The problem for me was that Drake and Evangeline's emotional story didn't progress at all. It has seemed at the end of MASTERED that Drake had reached a crisis point. After his treatment of Evangeline, it seemed like once they were back together that he would change, that she would change, that their relationship would be different. Instead, Evangeline forgave Drake too easy and once again in this book he treated her abominably.
I don't mind alpha dominate jerks as heroes as long as they end up treating the heroine with love and respect. Drake never learned this lesson. While the two reconcile at the end of DOMINATED, I had no confidence that he wouldn't go off the rails and treat Evangeline terribly again. I never felt that his characters made any changes that would justify a belief in an ultimate HEA. I ended up liking his "brothers" more than him because they believed in Evangeline while he immediately distrusted her without much reason.
For me, this book felt like an afterthought that was no necessary. I don't think that this story needed two books to tell and probably would have been better as one book. Too much of this book felt repetitive of MASTERED both in the story and also emotionally. The characters relationship seemed to stagnate and I lost interest.
After enjoying MASTERED, I was highly disappointed because not only was this book not what I had hoped it would be, but also it lessened my enjoyment with MASTERED because that book needs a conclusion. Sadly, that conclusion is not worthy of the first book in the series.
WORTH MENTIONING: There is a MMF menage scene in this book but no emotional menage relationship.
CONNECTED BOOKS: DOMINATED is the second book in The Enforcers series. This book is the second part of the romance between Drake and Evangeline and should be read after MASTERED.
STAR RATING: I give this book 2 stars.
I would really like my money back. This was awful.
We all know how these are going to end, so the joy is in the character development and plot twists-- of which there were none here.
Was this sent to MB as fan fiction and she just published it!??!
Save yourself the money and read below.
The high point situation was set up from the beginning with direct statements about Lil' Evangeline's safety (did i miss the fact that Drake was a criminal in the last novel?!)
Unfortunately, the climax of Drake (and his men) saving her was set up with a villain that was tossed in at the last minute to fulfill the need, no development.
No background on Silas, Maddox or any of Drake's men was developed. Except for the fact that they (like total creepers) repeat again and again how much they would like her in THEIR bed/to be their woman. I kept expecting a menage with them.
It seemed like Evangeline's name was repeated 3-4-5-6 times per page, because Drake was brooding for most of the novel.
Her friends "made up" with her in the span of 3-4 paragraphs, never to be seen again.
Predictable conflicts and the only way poor, pitiful Evangeline responded was with tears, shaking hands, a pale face and running to Drake's dudes for support.
Overview: Dude realized his mistake from previous novel. Spends pages calling himself all sorts of a jackass between thinking about how much he loves/needs/ must have her. Searches days for chick. Finds her. She cries, they're a couple again. Things are fine. Then repeat because he does something stupid again. Literally.
If you cut out the parts where he's thinking about how dumb he is/how much he needs her/how no one will touch her/she'll never want for anything again, you have about 25 pages left.
Extremely. EXTREMELY disappointed.
