DOMINATED is the second book in The
Enforcers series by Maya
Banks. In the first book in this series Drake betrayed
Evangeline in the worst way. His reasoning at the time was
that he was trying to save her from his enemies. After the
devastation and humiliation is it possible for a relationship
to survive? This is a relationship where a young, innocent,
naive woman becomes involved with a ruthless man who rules his
world with an iron fist. When the cruel words are launched at
her it felt like she was being stoned and that there was no
way that this innocent young woman could survive. The one
thing that made this situation tolerable was Drake's men
(Enforcers). These tough, in your face men were softies when
it came to Evangeline. They were her staunch supporters and
always had her back.
It's unbelievable how big a heart this woman has. That first
betrayal nearly destroyed her. Can your heart and soul
survive another that is even worse than the first one? This
story shows how one person gave everything of herself hoping
only to have the other person's love and trust. Evangeline
comes from a simple world and tries to see the good in
everyone. When she becomes involved with Drake she enters a
world she has never experienced. She knows that there are
things about Drake's business that she may not understand but
she sees only the good in Drake and accepts and loves him
anyway. Drake comes from a world that as a child he had to
take care of himself and finds it hard to trust anyone. So
when he is led to believe that Evangeline has betrayed him he
does the unforgivable.
I enjoyed DOMINATED but found myself asking how much can this
woman take. Drake calls Evangeline "his Angel." He's never
met anyone like her. Because of his past and his tough
exterior Drake will have to learn the hard way what trust and
love means. Maya Banks knows how to draw you into a story.
Be prepared to ask how much one person can tolerate.
The desire that exploded in Mastered continues its
conflagration in Dominated—from the New York
Times bestselling author of the Surrender Trilogy.
To save her, he had to betray her...
In Drake’s shadowy world, his enemies would exploit any
weakness he had in order to bring him to his knees, and so
he’s never allowed himself to care about anyone...never
exhibited any vulnerability, and it made him a force to be
reckoned with. Until Evangeline—his angel. A woman who
slipped past his defenses like no one had ever managed. She
was his to protect and ultimately, to do that, he had to do
the unthinkable and drive the only good thing in his world away.
But he will stop at nothing to get her back...
Devastated and destroyed, Evangeline doesn’t know what made
Drake turn on her in such a shocking manner. She only knows
she’ll never be the same. He once freed her from all her
inhibitions, only now she is a prisoner to never-ending
pain. But when Drake finds her again, she realizes there is
more to his world than she ever imagined, and she must
decide if she can once more trust—and submit—to the man who
holds her wounded heart in his hands. And he must convince
her of just how far he’ll go to regain her love and forgiveness.
