How steamy is it? Hot Damn

Publisher's Summary

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.

The worst

Worst narration of female voices by a man I've ever heard. Made me cringe. And the story was so predictable, like it was written by a child. Don't waste your time on this series.

Really Hard to finish

Would you try another book from Maya Banks and/or Jeremy York?

Yes, I usually like her work and his narration. the book was just not up to her usual standard

What was most disappointing about Maya Banks’s story?

The female character was just so pathetic. She agrees to take him back after he humiliates her, then she takes him back after he humiliates her a second time. Not to mention that she hasnt got a clue about what business he's in

How could the performance have been better?

The female voice wasnt his best

What character would you cut from Dominated?

not sure

Terrible

I typically like Maya banks books but this felt like it was written by a total amateur. The verbiage was so redundant it felt like the author was being paid by the word. I found myself rolling my eyes every two minutes. Furthermore, I really wasn't a fan of the narrator either. I almost quit listening on multiple occasions but I can never personally leave a story unfinished

Maya Banks Has Better Audiobooks

Jeremy is great at the male voice, but the female voice ruined it for me. Evangeline was pathetically weak.

Normally I don't write reviews but feel obligated

Any additional comments?

This book drags on and on and on about nothing. I want to reach into my ear buds and choke both the girl and the guy. I read through half and I just couldn't take it anymore. I'm not even going to request a return as I'm ashamed at myself for not heeding the reviews. Don't get me wrong I love MB but this book should never have been written. Read the first but don't bother purchasing the the 2nd.

Not entirely worth the wait..but I love Maya Banks

What did you like best about Dominated? What did you like least?

Hmm, I had no "best" that I liked in the book. What I didn't like was that Evangelene was way to forgiving of Drake. I mean, even as a submissive, she never really made him "work" for it before she plunged right back into his lifestyle, without knowing what the hell his "life" entailed.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I hated the ending. I hated that she AGAIN gave in to him so easily once he destroyed her for a 2nd time within months of getting back together after she took him back. I hated that she begged and pleaded with him for forgiveness when he showed no sign of having a rational thought process.

What aspect of Jeremy York’s performance would you have changed?

I liked Jeremy's reading of the book..I don't know if Evangelene was supposed to sound like a country hick without a lick of good sense or it was just his rendition of a woman's voice. Either way, his rendition of Evangelene was either awful or on point.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

Evangelene would be submissive and still not be a door mat. If I hear her say "I'll stay as long as you want me here" one more time, I was going to scream. I have never seen a woman give over so much of herself to someone with no regards to her wants and needs.

Any additional comments?

I love Maya and will read the additional books as they come, but Evanglene was a hot mess in book 1 and 2..she has no spine, backbone or sense of self preservation. While I understand that Drake had a an awful upbringing and didn't know or understand Jack about being in relationship let alone in love, he was just plan awful to her and hateful on two occasions. He never, not once, gave an ounce of blood, so to speak, for her. Why they had the connection they had I will never know. The only saving grace was Silas, Maddox, and Justice. If not for them, that poor girl wouldn't have had any self respect.

couldn't finish it. extremely boring.

The only positive thing about this book is Jeremy York's narration, which is always excellent. I enjoyed the first book but this one is just dragging on and I couldn't even finish it. I stuck with it until about chapter 20 and said I'm done. barely anything happens after the main characters get back together (at least for the first 20 chapters). I was so bored by this book, it was like listening to someone's daily life. I listen to audiobooks for a little excitement but this was quite dull. It's unfortunate, I enjoyed the first one.

I tried... I just couldn't finish this.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Not possible - the story and the characters would have to be rewritten. This is like a first draft to get the ideas down. The characters are over the top and pathetic. Too extreme - not real and not believable.

What do you think your next listen will be?

It won't be the 3rd in this series... I'm abandoning the entire series and maybe even the author. I am so disappointed.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Not sure. You can only work with what you have

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No. I stopped at less than 25% through this book. I persevered through the first, Mastered, which was bad, but given Maya Banks, I hoped that she would bring the series around in the 2nd book.

Any additional comments?

The first two books of this series seem like they were written by a different author. The character development was amateur, the storyline unbelievable, little action, mainly tell and it was full of hyperbole. I feel cheated as I did read reviews. Next time, I will take greater note of the poorer reviews. I have purchased, but doubt I will listen to the final book.
