Publisher's Summary

Real Doms terrify her, so Summer plays with lightweights only. And only in the safety of her club, Dark Haven. But on Western Night, the tough cop who wins her in a sub-roping game is as powerful as they come.

Virgil's first taste of BDSM was disturbingly enticing. Hoping to burn out his interest, he visits an infamous San Francisco club, where he wins himself the prettiest little submissive he's ever seen. He's in a quandary. A man shouldn't render a woman helpless, let alone spank her ass. But the nervous little submissive clearly loves being in his ropes. Her need to be controlled is as powerful as his need to control. So he indulges himself, and her.

That one night could be the beginning, but instead it's the end. She won't play outside the club and he lives too far to visit often. He'll just have to find a way to forget her or get her in his ropes to stay.

Another series by Cherise Sinclair that gets better as it evolves

As each story of the Mountain Masters/Dark Haven series is done they just get better. Summer and Virgil has to be one of my favorite and Ms. Sinclair has picked two incredible narrators for this series too. A must have audible series.

Beautiful

I loved this story to the moon and back. And the performances just added to the enjoyment of the story.

When I read I hear the characters but to actually hear the characters well it's amazing and Kai & Wen do an amazing job that really makes you feel as if you there with them.

So can't wait for the next one

My Two Pennies

I actually want to give this book a 4.5 in the ratings. In this story we get more into Virgil and Summer, you remember Summer from the previous book while at the party her Dom was completely out of control and didn't stop when she used her safe word. Well we get to see what develops between these two. Virgil is new to the BDSM world and highly curious even though as an officer he feels that it's wrong to an extent. The connection between these two is safe, strong and beautiful. Summer has a fight within herself about trusting anyone after her previous experience. This was a great read and so happy with their story.

Loose Ends from Prior Stories Tied Up

I was so glad to see that Sinclair gave Summer her own story. I've been curious about her ever since reading what happened to her in Simon Says: Mine. It was a great idea to pair her up with Virgil from Master of the Abyss. It was wonderful to see him learn to accept who he was and to help Summer overcome her fear and trust issues. They made a great pair, and the narrators did a great job playing them.

Amazingly Sweet

What did you love best about Master of the Dark Side?

I loved how Virgil didn't just write her off or push Summer away because she wasn't comfortable with everything he wanted.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the fact that this story shows the good and the bad in life and that it also shows that you shouldn't let the bad hold you back from everything you love.

Which scene was your favorite?

I didn't ave a favorite scene because I loved the whole book. It is really hard to choose any one part that just stands out and says I am better than the rest.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The entire story is touching in many ways and its hard to not get emotionally involved when someone writes as well as Cherise does.

Any additional comments?

This entire story is touching and goes very well with the other books in the series. I've read all of the before but listening to them brings a new depth to the story and makes all the emotions so much more real. I can't wait to continue reading Cherise's great works in the future. I also adore the fact that in her authors note at the beginning of the book she cautions people and reminds them that this is real life and you shouldn't just dive head first into something and you should make sure you are safe at all times.

Kai Kenecott is a hideous narrator!

Everything she does sounds THE EXACT SAME! She even struggles to make different sounding characters...While I appreciate that she knows how to pour inflection into her voice, and she worked great for the Riley Murphy trilogy [Persuaded, Provoked, Pushed], the breathy quality and overly dramatic reading (@times) makes her very difficult to relate to with the different characters of this series. Please Ms. Sinclair, by the love of all that is holy, keep using Mr. Levine to narrate the remainder of your Shadowlands books, not Ms. Kennicott! I can't take listening to her screw up such a great series that a single guy [Levine] managed to create such an entire rich universe of vocal interpretations for...I can listen to him do a character and know who it is. I listen to Kenecott and cats tell who she is doing other than by the context/writing.
