Exciting new series!
I love Maya Banks books and was excited to get to read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is the first in a new series and is centered around Drake Donovan and Evangeline Hawthorn. These two characters are polar opposites but totally right for each other.
Drake is one of a group of "brothers." These men are very much alpha males that have seen and done things that would scare most normal people. They all have their secrets and live in a world that doesn't always work within the laws of the land. Even with these characteristics, all of them have a softer, caring side that they don't seem to normally show to anyone, yet they do to Evangeline. Drake finds himself feeling things that he had closed off years prior.
Evangeline is the very epitome of an innocent young lady that cares much more for others than herself. She is finds herself in Drake's world; a world that is totally different from everything she has ever known. Her feelings for Drake are important enough to her to give up her independence to be a part of his life. The entire time, she doubts that Drake could care for someone like her.
The story of these two attempting to make their relationship work is very emotional at times. It is very hot as is typical with Ms. Banks books. Just as you think all is well, you are hit with a cliffhanger that will have you shaking your head. I really enjoyed this book and the story. I found it a bit "wordy" at times and felt that it could have moved a little faster because of that. I very much enjoyed the characters and am now anxiously awaiting the next book to get a resolution to the cliffhanger and this couple. I am also very interested in reading the stories of Drake's "brothers." 4 Stars for this one.
I used to love reading Maya Banks' books. Once she hit the #1 lists - her content AND writing started slipping...I still read, but I'm often left w/wordiness that drives me crazy, especially w/this book. I'll prob read the rest of their story just to have closure, but I think I'm done reading Bank's books at this point. Just a huge disappointment
Mastered by Maya Banks
I love reading Maya Banks' books! I was in the middle of another book when this one downloaded. I stopped what I was reading and started right in on Mastered. I was not disappointed!! Love it.
