About the Author
Whenever I ask for BDSM recommendations, I am told the same two words all the time: Cherise Sinclair.
~ Under the Covers Reviews
Authors often say their characters argue with them. Unfortunately, since Cherise Sinclair’s heroes are Doms, she never, ever wins.
A New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, she’s renowned for writing heart-wrenching romances with laugh-out-loud dialogue, devastating Dominants, and absolutely sizzling sex. And did I mention the BDSM? Her awards include a National Leather Award, Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice nomination, and Best Author of the Year from the Goodreads BDSM group.
Fledglings having flown the nest, Cherise, her beloved husband, and one fussy feline live in the Pacific Northwest where nothing is cozier than a rainy day spent writing.

It echoed If Only almost point for point. Insecure submissive, in this case Uzuri, gets injured and two of the Masters of the Shadowlands take her home for a few days to keep an eye on her recovery. She decides to have them help her with a serious issue, so she moves in for a while. Something bad happens, and she assumes all of the blame and guilt, breaking off the relationship and running away. Sound familiar to anyone else? Granted, that isn't the entire plot. Phsycotic stalkers seem to exist in larger numbers in Sinclair's world than they do in reality. It seems to be one of her favorite plot devices.
In addition to the recycled material, the characters are becoming stale and almost two-dimensional. Uzuri isn't the first of the Shadowlands submissives to have deep personal issues that come from a past lover who turned out to be a crazed stalker. Max isn't the only LEO in the series to have occasional troubles dealing with the stress of his job. Alastair isn't the first medical professional who lets patient situations beyond his control come home with him to bleed all over the people for whom he cares. Sinclair has found comfortable niches with these kinds of characters and situations and doesn't seem to want to try anything different.
Also, for being the supposed worst pranksters in the club, Uzuri didn't seem to be as into the pranks as her reputation. Sally was more active and creative in If Only, despite her own deep personal issues. It certainly didn't fit with Uzuri's characterization in previous books.
Bottom line? After 11 books and a novella, Cherise Sinclair has become entirely too comfortable with this series, and she's left the door open for more. I will give the next one a try, but if it isn't substantially better than this one, I'll not read further in the series. Overall, Mischief and the Masters was okay, and if you've stuck with the series this far and want to know why Uzuri is the way she is, it might be worth your while. Otherwise, you might not find it to be worth your time.
I did love Cullen and Andrea's wedding. Loved seeing the gang altogether. Glad Master Dan got some air time. I hope Holt gets the next book. Though not my favorite, this is a worthy book in the series. Four Stars only on this book. ~ JULE K. ~ 🌟🌟🌟🌟
Additionally, this book just needed some editing. There are continuity errors. For example, in Andrea and Cullen's book, Cullen's mom is passed. However, in this book he has a mother/son dance at the wedding. Also, slightly offensive language. Like describing eyes as having an oriental tilt, is culturally insensitive. In previous books Uzuri's hair was described as kinky. Not really ok either. I'm going to keep reading the series, because I love the characters. However, this book felt a little thrown together and not really loved on enough.
