After Dark Review of Club Shadowlands by Cherise Sinclair

Here we are, February 1st, kicking off a month of Lust and Love!!
I will be sharing a variety of books with you all surrounding the theme of lust, love and all that lies between. I will have some sweet romances, some childrens love books, and of course plenty of After Dark Steam for all different tastes! Hope you will all stop in and join me!

I have added After Dark Reviews to my blog as a way of notifying you of a review of a book with Adult themes and scenes. From now on I will keep my reviews of all books I read that have explicit scenes in them for late night posts for those of you who prefer to avoid them or easy to find for those of you who seek them out ;)

Synopsis: "Her car disabled during a tropical storm, Jessica Randall discovers the isolated house where she's sheltering is a private bondage club. At first shocked, she soon becomes aroused watching the interactions between the Doms and their subs. But she's a professional woman--an accountant--and surely isn't a she?

Master Z hasn't been so attracted to a woman in years. But the little sub who has wandered into his club intrigues him. She's intelligent. Reserved. Conservative. After he discovers her interest in BDSM, he can't resist tying her up and unleashing the passion she hides within.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse, strong BDSM theme and content (including/not limited to bondage, caning, restraints, spanking, etc), exhibitionism, voyeurism."

My Review: Looking for some steam? You found it here! This is a very hot introduction to The Shadowlands series and BDSM. While the relationship moved very quickly, and as stated in the disclosure at the beginning of the book that it should take much longer in real life to develop the trusting relationship between a dom and sub, this is a work of fiction. I loved the characters, all of them including the supporting characters (and look forward to reading their stories in later books). While this is fiction, it is still a much better introduction into the lifestyle than 50 Shades. We get the shocks and the heat right along with Jessica as Master Z rules her night and teaches the ropes. So yup, add a little sizzle to your evening!        

My Rating: I think I need to add some paws of fire to rate the heat in these books!! I love Club Shadowlands, it was short enough to enjoy in an evening or two and still a full story. You could read it on its own, but I bet like me you are going to want to continue with the series.  I give it a rating of Four Paws!


  1. Yay Ang I'm so so glad you liked the series!! I think Cherise is one of the best authors to try out if you're interested in reading the genre. I really liked that you kind of learn right along with the women what it's like.

    Aren't the secondary characters awesome? Fell in love with a couple way before their books. LOL

    Her Mountain Masters series is amazing too if you haven't tried those :)


    1. She definitely does a great job of easing you and drawing you into the genre along with the lifestyle. Oh gosh I love the secondary characters, I definitely fell in love with each as they were introduced.

      I haven't tried that series yet but have the first couple of books downloaded ;)
