Are you ready to go WILD? Angel Payne’s USA Today bestselling series continues with Book 8, MASTERED BY THE MAVERICKS:
The first step to solving a problem…
Brynna Monet is on a man diet for the rest of her life. No more G men, spies, or soldiers, period. Willpower comes easily from the scars on her heart, left by a string of dominant bad boys who have all asked too high a price for her passion: her trust.
But what ransom will she give for her best friend’s life?
When the unspeakable happens, Brynn insists on courting temptation in every hot, dangerous sense of the word—times two. In order to save her friend from the captivity of a madman, Brynn is assigned as a secret consultant on one of the military’s riskiest missions, working with a pair of the Special Forces’ most notorious bad boys: Rhett Lange and Rebel Stafford.
…is admitting you’ve got one.
From the moment Brynn lands in the middle of a Texas wilderness with these two, she questions the sanity of her decision—and the survival of her willpower. Like the most decadent dominant dessert, Rhett and Rebel embody everything her body craves—and her spirit fears. Their control unravels her fantasies, their command exposes her desire…and their courage, with themselves as well as the monster they chase, moves her heart.
But, like all dreams-come-true, it’s temporary.
Though Brynn submits to her lovers, she knows better than to give up her trust—until the fate of the mission hinges on exactly that. Can Brynn face her biggest fear to save a friend’s life—but still know her soul at the end?
Although I own many novels of hers, this is the first time I’ve been able to read one of Angel Payne’s books. My cohort, Lena often raves about her stories and I had to find a time to fit one into my schedule and Mastered by the Mavericks was perfect timing and full of all my favorite things. Suspense—check. BDSM erotica—check, check. Ménage—check, check, and check! While I had to wait a long to read Payne’s work, Mavericks did not disappoint.
Like I said I hadn’t read any of the WILDer series yet so the first part of the book wasn’t confusing but was a lot of detail. I have no doubt had I read the others it would have all fallen into place without a second thought. That being said, I had no problem picking up in the middle of the series. If nothing else, now I’m excited for a chance to go back and read the first seven.
So after a bunch of Lena—and others—induced hype, I won’t lie I had high expectations. Some from them, some from my own crazy brain. I thought this would be full of action and well action, if you know what I mean. I had to say I’m surprised that there wasn’t as much “bang-bang-shoot-them-up” action but there was PLENTY of the other kind and I loved every erotic second. The story seems to focus more on the creation and evolution of the relationship between the three. Even in the compressed timeframe Payne is still able to get depth to their bond and feelings without dragging down the plot. I can’t wait to read more of the alpha hunks and saucy females!
