Dominated (The Enforcers #2) by Maya Banks
The desire that exploded in Mastered continues its conflagration in Dominated—from the New York Times bestselling author of the Surrender Trilogy.
To save her, he had to betray her...
In Drake’s shadowy world, his enemies would exploit any weakness he had in order to bring him to his knees, and so he’s never allowed himself to care about anyone...never exhibited any vulnerability, and it made him a force to be reckoned with. Until Evangeline—his angel. A woman who slipped past his defenses like no one had ever managed. She was his to protect and ultimately, to do that, he had to do the unthinkable and drive the only good thing in his world away.
But he will stop at nothing to get her back...
Devastated and destroyed, Evangeline doesn’t know what made Drake turn on her in such a shocking manner. She only knows she’ll never be the same. He once freed her from all her inhibitions, only now she is a prisoner to never-ending pain. But when Drake finds her again, she realizes there is more to his world than she ever imagined, and she must decide if she can once more trust—and submit—to the man who holds her wounded heart in his hands. And he must convince her of just how far he’ll go to regain her love and forgiveness.
4 out of 5 stars
This story starts right where book one ended and I swear I held my breath the first 20% of it! It was intense. It definitely pulled me in right from the start.
I really liked the overall storyline and intensity happening. There is so much turmoil and pain going on for both Drake and Evangeline. I was completely fascinated by Drake and his dominate ways. Loved learning Drake’s details and seeing his raw, vulnerable moments as he really starts changing and opening up. As far as Evangeline goes, I like her and want to smack her all at the same time. Sometimes she seemed so much stronger than she was, but then she'd waver and the back and forth made me kind of crazy. She is so open and forgiving, almost to the point of overkill. However, that open and loving nature brings everyone into her fold, making them feel cherished and like family, which is a wonderful thing. So with Evangeline I definitely have a love hate relationship thing going on.
All of Drake’s men are fantastic. They each have such distinct personalities and I love seeing those really shine through behind their manly gruffness. I loved getting more of his men, their interactions with Evangeline and am looking forward to their stories in the series.
I thought the writing was good, very descriptive, a bit slow in places but overall had a good flow and nice progression. It was the overall storyline that sold me and had me lost in their world. There is drama, tension, a lot of passion, and a whole heck of a lot of hotness throughout. Crazy hotness where you're like wow! “Did that just happen?” hot. Great read!
