And since I'm kind of busy, I'll be posting MASTERED BY THE CEO too!
Enjoy this hot new BDSM story in the MASTERED BY series from New York Times Bestselling Author Opal Carew.
Chelsea spent the past ten years rebelling against Zane’s control. When their parents died, he became her guardian, controlling her trust fund and the company they shared. But hating the control he exerted on her did nothing to stop her from wanting him.
When she refuses to obey his summons for a weekend meeting, he cuts off her money, leaving her in a strange city with no way to pay her hotel bill. Forced to accept his help and join him at his country house, she soon discovers his intention is not strictly business. When she experiences his potent masculine domination she finds the reality of being with Zane far exceeds her fantasies… leaving her wanting more.
But can she surrender to this forbidden love and be mastered by her guardian?
I love Opal Carew and her books. This is the third in the series and has the STEP-PERSON fantasy. I don't like that. I'm sorry but I just find that wrong because that is family. Not by blood (thank god it isn't incest) But it still is family-like.
The story follows a young woman named Chelsea who is an independent woman. Which I love. Stories with hard working women really grab you and this one did. She, however, is controlled by her guardian named Zane.
I don't know how but their fathers were business partners and when they died Zane a man ten years her senior got custody of her and became her guardian. I like this girl because she rebels and that makes me think that she's a strong woman.
Like every Opal Carew novel, sex finds its way with hard and hot sex. Chelsea finds her way to Zane after he forces her to visit him in an old house they once lived.
The house is the main setting and it's where the sex takes place. However here, at night Chelsea begins to sleep walk and well... The story moves on from there.
I love the MASTERED BY Series but this one is my least favorite. I don't see how on earth this could happen and I was a bit shocked when I found out that Chelsea lets go. Clearly, this book will appeal to those with the similar fantasy.
But the sex is well written and the story is also well written. But this isn't for me and I try to remind myself that I should judge the story and writing but I can't. I've read Opal's other story titled STEPBROTHER MINE and I kind of liked it more.
But those are just my opinions. Out of a 5, I'd give it a 2.5.
But it is definitely a sizzling book and you should read it.

From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Opal Carew comes another sizzling BDSM erotic romance in the Mastered By series.
How did I wind up in King’s bed as his sex slave? Being totally dominated by him?
It all started when King bought the company I work for. The last time I was out of work—after handing King my resignation--it took two years before I found another position and I’m desperate to avoid that situation again. So now I’ll do whatever I can to keep my job.
But, in fact, even with me submitting to his every whim, there’s no guarantee.
King says I’m difficult and never do what I’m told--which is true—so is this simply penance for past sins? Or if I prove I'll follow his commands without question, will he keep me on?
I don’t know. And frankly, I don’t care. When I’m in his arms, all I care about is staying there.
But that’s not an option.
James “King” Taylor
When I bought Bernier Electronics, I didn’t know Rachel was one of the junior executives. With our history, there’s no way I can keep her on. I need executives who will do as I say, not constantly question my every move.
I’d like to say it’s a difficult decision, but it’s not. Our past has proven she won’t fit in my management team.
But it’s never simple. When she worked for me five years ago, we had a clandestine affair. She insisted on keeping it strictly sexual, but I wanted so much more. When she left, I was devastated. Clearly, it meant more to me than it did to her.
The truth is I still want her in my bed. But I won’t hire her just for the sex.
She insists she can change, that she’ll do exactly as she’s told, but I know that’ll never work. Still, offering her the chance to prove herself—by becoming my submissive for an entire weekend—will prove to her it'll never work. I never dominated her when we were together before, and the mere thought has me rock-hard.
I just hope I can handle losing her again after I experience the sweetness of her submission.
So I think that Mastered By The CEO is a tad similar in Mastered By The Boss. The storyline is different of course, but they share the same fantasy. In this series, I was looking for different reads but don't let that bother you because this book was very well.
Rachel is a junior exec at a company that was just bought and as all mergers go, lots of people get laid off. She's having one heck of a bad day when this news comes across and not only does she miss the announcement of this all happening, but she is then forced to go meet with the exec offsite. Low and behold, it's King - her old boss with whom she has a past with.
I love these types of stories with two people like this. It reminds me of Opal Carew's other novel Nailed (which I highly recommend if you want something sweet and erotic) King and Rachel see that they still have it from the start, even though they try to fight it just a little bit. Because of Rachel's bad morning of having a car accident, then resulting in a concussion, shes under King's thumb again and sparks are flying everywhere.
They then hit it off from there with Rachel becoming a sex slave for him.
I loved the character of Rachel. She was a motivated driven female character. These are the characters I enjoy so much because they're so independent. I also loved James. He was so sweet and how he wanted her...
So I definitely would give this book a
5/5 stars. One of the best in the series.
