Maya Banks is one of my favorite authors, so naturally I
was excited for this new series. MASTERED is the first
book in The Enforcers series. I really enjoyed

how she was honest and completely loyal to those she

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Surrender
Trilogy and the Breathless Trilogy knows what makes
readers hot. Now she turns it up in MASTERED, the
explosive first book in a new series of a desire too
dangerous to resist.
What he wants, he takes with no remorse or guilt.
She stood out in his club like a gem, unspoiled and
untouched. A lamb among wolves, she clearly didn’t
belong. Drawn to her innocence he watched as she was
surrounded by men who saw what he did—but no one but him
could touch her. He summoned her to his private quarters.
He sensed her fear. He also recognized the desire in her
eyes. And he knew she wouldn’t leave before he possessed
her. She had no need to know his secrets. Not until he
had her under his complete and utter control.
What he wants, she isn’t sure she can give him.
The moment he told her want he wanted, she couldn’t
resist. Instinct told her to run, but her heart said stay
and walk the fine line between pleasure and pain. Though
she wasn’t sure she could ever completely surrender, the
primal part of her wanted to try, even knowing this man
could break her in ways she never imagined. Because once
he possessed her, he owned her and it would be too late
to turn back. She can only pray that he doesn’t destroy
her in the end.
