After Dark Review of Breaking Free by Cherise Sinclair

Welcome to 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: "Beth must yield to become aroused, but she's too scared to give up control. The last thing she wants is a ruthless, powerful Dom. But that's just what she gets, and exactly what she needs...

A sadistic husband left Beth scarred, inside and out. Only at the Shadowlands BDSM club does she feel like a woman. But her fears limit her to Doms who won't overwhelm her� the very ones who cannot arouse her. The Master of the Shadowlands gives her an ultimatum: accept the Dom he assigns or lose her membership. The last thing Beth wants is a ruthless, powerful Dom, but that's just what she gets.

Asked to take on a problem sub, Nolan sees the issue immediately� although truly submissive, the little redhead is too scared to relinquish control and her Doms have let her get away with it. That will change right now.

As Master Nolan takes Beth under command, compelling her submission, she's terrified, but the experienced Dom brings her pleasure, not pain. His only demand is that she never lie to him. Under his capable hands, her body comes alive, and she begins to heal. As he pushes her limits, she learns to trust...and then to love. And she realizes he is beginning to care for her in return.

But now her cruel husband has found her, and Master Nolan discovers she's been lying and lying and lying...

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse, BDSM theme and elements (including/not limited to bondage, caning, domination, restraint, paddling, spanking, submission, tethering); exhibitionism, ménage, violence. "

My Review: The next installment of the Shadowlands series. I feel like Sinclair is starting to develop more of a story. The first two were more of an introductions to the lifestyle and scene, but with Breaking Free we get more of a novel and storyline. There is a lot more going on than just BDSM. I loved how favorite characters from previous stories are integrated and how new characters are brought in to get you introduced for future books. Nolan sounds very intimidating and almost makes me cringe but it is great to see the softer side of him at times. I am not really sure if I really love Beth but I like her and respect her. Beth's story is a hard one to get through with so much pain in it. I have to say though that my favorite character in this story has to be Cullen, I am looking forward to his story!
My Rating: Another great book by Cherise Sinclair filled with great characters. I like how this one had more of a story line to it than the previous two in the series. You really start to get a feel for all the characters and can dive more into the story. I give it a rating of Four Paws.
