Review: Club Shadowlands (Masters of the Shadowlands #1) by Cherise Sinclair

Synopsis (via Goodreads):
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.
My Thoughts: Oh, wow.  I liked this book.  A.Lot.  More than most BDSM books.  I think there's a fine line between showing the relationship between a Dom and sub as being full of trust and pushing boundaries and using this type of book as an excuse to heap abuse on a character.  Cherise Sinclair delved into the D/s relationship and made it sexy and lovely and hotter than hell.

Master Z is a fantastic character.  He's patient and dedicated.  He's committed to giving those who enjoy this type of lifestyle a safe place to live out their fantasies.  He feels an instant attraction to Jessica and he's willing to take the time to educate her on what she's unwittingly stumbled into.

I loved the secondary characters that pepper the background.  I assume that the other Doms that had the same charismatic quality as Master Z will be the main characters in their own books.  You know, being Masters of the Shadowlands and all.

All in all, a very fun and naughty read.  I'm looking forward to the rest in the series.
