The Masters by Lisa Renee Jones Review

Today I have the talented Lisa Renee Jones with me. I will be discussing her Masters Series. This is a series of three books that are about a group of BDSM Masters at a place called The Society and the women who venture into the life to be with the men they love.

Book 1

Eight years ago, Sarah Michaels locked eyes with Ryan White at a sinful sex club. His dominant presence exuded erotic promises and aroused part of Sarah that she didn’t recognize. But Ryan was her family’s chief rival in the candy business, the very definition of forbidden fruit.
Since that night, Sarah has tried to deny that she wants what Ryan offers, that she actually wants to be dominated. Yet she can’t stop fantasizing about him. When Ryan invites her to his elite club where power and pleasure go hand-in-hand, the temptation to explore her suppressed desires is too strong to resist. Is she ready to give up control to Ryan—a man who might never give it back?

What I thought...

I thought this book was pretty good. The sex scenes were hot but not explosive so I would say it is a lighter erotic. The book starts off pretty hot with Sarah and Ryan running into each other at the Society. This spurs some fantasies in Sarah. The problem is, Sarah is always in control and is scared her to give Ryan the reins.  Ryan is definitely a Dom and acts and talks like one. He is nurturing and sexy and cherishes Sarah. Sarah is your typical in control women. She is strong and determined to make things work. I really respected her for her ability to shoulder the responsibility she did.

A TASTE OF PLEASURE is a short read so therefore it moves very quickly. I really would have liked to have it slowed down so I could have more but it was very good as a novella. The only thing that I disliked in this book is the ended seemed very abrupt. It came up very quickly and I was not expecting it. Really good book that I would recommend.

Book 2


Three years ago, Darla Rogers’s ex, Jacob Remington, left on a top secret Special Forces mission and didn’t return—at least, not to her. They had broken up after he pushed her to the erotic edge, asking her to trust him completely…and she pushed him away.
Now Jacob is back, revealing his membership in a secret society that enjoys games of dominance and submission. This time, Darla is determined prove she belongs in his world. Even if that means embracing her darkest desires with Jacob and the society’s leader….

What I thought...

I truly enjoyed the relationship between Darla and Jacob in this book. Again this is a short read so everything kind of happens fast but it works in this one. You figure out right away that Darla and Jacob have a past and have already done the relationship thing but Darla was not comfortable in Jacob's world and that forces her to push him away. He leaves and that is when Darla decides she is gonna learn the way of The Society. She agrees to be taught by The Societies leader but Jacob is having none of that. He joins the party and shows Darla just how much she belongs to him. Darla is an attorney so she is not used to not having control but is determined to show the man she loves that she can be a part of something that is important to him. I really liked that about her. She was willing to confront something that she was scared of for Jacob. Jacob was your typical Dom. Alpha, powerful, demanding...amazing character and he was perfect for the book. This was a very good fast, erotic read that I would recommend.

Book #3
Exposed and Pleasured

Book store owner Kim Baker has a serious crush on Dr. Blake Morgan—an attraction that only gets stronger when he shows her an erotic book and invites her on a night of sensual exploration at his private club, the Society.
She’s drawn to his sense of power and dominant sexuality…and can’t help but fantasize about being controlled by him in every way. But as Blake teaches Kim to claim her pleasure and lose her inhibitions, he may be the one in danger of losing control….

What I thought...

I really enjoyed this book! Both the characters were very well written. I sincerely liked Blake. He was very caring and nurturing on the outside but when he arrived at the club you saw a whole new side of him that will take your breath away. He is alpha to the tee and very sexual. Kim is a bookworm and history buff so when Blake shows her a erotic book and invites her to join him at his club she doesn't know what to think. She is very interested in him so she decides to let go a bit and join him. Kim realizes that Blake is not the man she thought he was but is pleasantly surprised that he turns out to be exactly who she needs. I also enjoyed the plot in this book. It flowed very smooth and kept me interested the whole way through. My only disappointment was that I couldn't have more of these two characters. Definitely a must read.

Lisa Renee Jones does a fantastic job with this series and I sincerely hope that she will continue and write some of the other very compelling characters I was introduced to.

Lisa has a brand new release out this week that I would recommend you check out. #2 in her Vampire Wardens book is available.
