She wants a short, sweet Master. One Master.
The two devastatingly dominant Drago cousins have other ideas.
Her life destroyed by a stalker, Uzuri Cheval starts anew in Tampa and joins the exclusive Shadowlands club. Unconvinced of her claims that she can overcome her fear of big men without help, Master Z gives her a time limit. And she is improving--until she hears the stalker is out of prison. Now her time limit is up, and the Masters will intervene, which is okay--as long as whoever helps her is short. Okay, sweet and gentle would be good, too.
But two Doms? Dangerously experienced and dauntingly powerful cousins? No way.
Having volunteered in every hellhole in the world, Dr. Alastair Drago is ready to settle down. Detective Max Drago has joined him and, once again, the cousins share everything. A house, lives, problems…and whatever submissive catches their interest. One mischievous submissive has definitely caught Alastair’s. However, having been burned by a woman, Max remains detached…until little mischief’s troubles turn deadly.
Oh you guys! It was like a breath of fresh air to finally get Uzuri’s story in my hands. I’ve loved this character ever since she came into play in Cherise Sinclair’s Masters of the Shadowlands series. You worry when there is a character in a series that you’re so attached to. Will the author do the character justice? Who will finally steal her heart? Will he OR they be worthy of her heart? In the end, I shouldn’t have worried at all. Ms. Sinclair has never steered her characters or her readers wrong. She puts in heart and soul into every character and it shines through each and every single page.
As you can tell by the blurb and the book cover, this is of course, a menage romance. Those can be so tricky, but for Ms. Sinclair, it was just a walk in the park. Alastair and Max, together, were an absolute perfect fit for the independent sub with a runaway past. They brought back the true submissive that was buried so deep in Uzuri. They taught her how to live without being afraid. They taught her out to give all of herself and just surrender to them. It was such a long and hard-fought journey, but in the end, every single piece of this beautiful triad had to grow.
In reading the series, we don’t know much about Uzuri, but fans of this amazing series will be pleased, but heartbroken to learn all of it. Alastair and Max are family, and all throughout this book, you could tell how deep their bond really is. At the beginning I was nervous because it seemed like they wanted to different things. Alastair wanted to settle down, have a family. Max had this ‘been there, done that’ attitude, and didn’t seem like he was moving a muscle on that topic. But just like fans of the series, they both ended up falling for the lovely and sassy prankster of the Shadowlands.
MISCHIEF AND THE MASTERS was a great addition to an incredible series. Ms. Sinclair did her fans proud with Uzuri’s happily ever after. This is one triad that you will root for, beginning to end.
