Overview

He wants to dominate her senses—and her heart…

Quinton Ross has always been a thrill-seeker—so it’s no surprise that he’s drawn to extremes in the bedroom and at his BDSM club, Blasphemy, where he creates sense-depriving scenarios that blow submissives’ minds. Now if he could just find one who needs the rush as much as him…

When an accident leaves Cassia Locke with a paralyzing fear of the dark, she’ll try anything to get help. Ready to fight, she knows just who to ask for help—the hard-bodied, funny-as-hell Dom she’d always crushed on—and once stood up.

Quinton is shocked and a little leery to see Cassia, but he can’t pass up the chance to dominate the alluring little sub this time. Introducing her to sensory deprivation becomes his new favorite obsession, and watching her fight fear is its own thrill. But when doubt threatens to send her running again, Quinton must find a way to master her senses—and her heart.

Wow, book 2 just blew me away. This story gives us Master Quinton who we met in the previous book. He is a Master Dom at Blasphemy. Cassia isn't new to Blasphemy, but she hasn't been there in a long while. Quinton went running to one of the rooms in their club and who does he find on the floor shaking beyond belief? A sub who had enjoyed some time ago. Where had she been? And what was happening now? This is one super sexy book, these two don't want anything outside of the club, but life always takes turns and sometimes there are exactly the right ones. I really enjoyed this story in the series, and I am eagerly awaiting the next.

I loved this book! Watching Cassia become whole through hard work and a willingness to try anything to overcome PTSD was inspiring! And having a willing Dom want to help? The BEST!!!

This one seems to be getting mixed reviews, but I liked it quite a bit. Cassia had some fairly heavy duty phobias that had pretty much caused her to put her life on hold for two years, and watching Quinton throw himself into figuring out how to help her overcome them (in an erotic/D/s kind of way) was sweet. And...not sweet at the same time ;) It did feel a bit rushed at times--Cass and Quinton did have a history, but we didn't really get to see it, and they moved a bit quickly to declarations at the end (though the intensity of their...ahem, other scenes might contribute to that somewhat)--but it wasn't outside the realm of believability. And whoa, was Quinton ever creative... :D Though several of Blasphemy's other owners made appearances (along with a few characters from other series), this one worked just fine as a standalone. Ten more Doms to go! Rating: 4 stars /B+ I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

Laura Kaye's Mastering Her Senses is nothing less than Erotic Romance perfection. The perfect blend of emotion filled drama, heart-melting romance, and explorations in sensual dominance. This is the perfect read for the intelligent sensualist. The caring and observant nature of leading man and Master Quinton Ross, is a lock and key fit to his leading lady's very specific needs and desires. While leading lady, Cassia Locke's phobia of the dark, and the trauma surrounding it, takes what happens as a result of it to new and hitherto unexplored levels of psychological and sexual gravity for both characters and readers. Laura Kaye's stories are so captivating that readers are literally immersed in every aspect of them, for as long as the pages are turning. Her characters are highly intelligent, emotionally mature, and sexually complex. Her understanding of the aspects of Dominance Play used in this story are spot on, and exquisitely represented...and the sex is HOT AS HELL! This reviewer can honestly say that Laura Kaye has now been added to my insta-buy list, and should defiantly be at the top of that of ANY Erotic Romance fan. Reviewer's Note: This book is the second in a loosely related companion series. It may however, be enjoyed as part of its intended series, or as a standalone.

When Quinton rescues a sub in distress, he's surprised to find she's the woman who stood him up years ago. He's immediately intrigued with her and is shocked to discover why he hasn't seen her in the club since. Cassie has some serious issues she is working through and she's hoping that she can overcome her phobia for the dark at the club. Her attempt to shut out her fear fails and puts Quinton into the position to offer her his expertise as a master, and he doesn't do anything halfway. Even though they agree there are "no strings attached" because they both feel they aren't looking for a relationship, their spark together just can't be denied. Mastering Her Senses is hot hot hot. Quinton is a master at a lot of things, especially knowing just what delicious words to say to get Cassie right where he wants her. There's a perfect mix of D/s scenes, along with a very tender and sweet romance. I love a guy who falls hard and Quinton is all about that. Fun, steamy and sweet = 5 stars

Another great series by Laura Kate. This is the first book I read in the series and I loved it! I can't wait to read more. If you love Lecie Blake, Cherise Sinclair then you will love this series too. Happy Reading:)

4.5 stars for this sweet and sexy BDSM romance. Cassia is a geologist who'd spent her career studying caves, up until two years ago. That's when she was buried in a cave-in that killed two of her co-workers and from which she barely survived. Trapped in the dark for days, injured, and with no assurance she would be rescued, has left Cassia with an intense fear of the dark that's caused her personal and professional lives to be tipped upside-down. She can no longer explore caves, and had to find a desk job that brought her back to Baltimore. Personally, she'd given up her interest in submission, because what Dom wants a sub that's afraid to be blindfolded? Still, Cassia's a determined woman who wants to take charge of her life again--and she turns to Club Blasphemy, where she has once been a member, to make it happen. Good thing Master Quinton is there to help her when she stumbles! Quinton barely recognized Cassia as the sub who stood him up a couple of years ago. They'd had fun, casually, but finding her in a full-out panic inside the "dark room" wasn't how he'd anticipated reconnecting. Once he's able to help her through the worst of it, Quinton demands the full story--Cassia hadn't been playing safe if she wasn't willing to having a darkness phobia. (I swear to goodness, I totally felt for Cassia in that moment. I'm that same stubborn-type of person who thinks "I can do ANYTHING I put my mind to--even if I have to force it," much to my hubby's chagrin!) While Cassia's embarrassed and a bit humbled--she's also encouraged by how kind and gentle Quinton is, and soothed by his attention. It's a no-brainer for her to accept his offer at darkness desensitization. And that's not only because she finds him totally sexy. The man knows sensory stimulation, as she remembers from her interactions with him before her cave-in experience. What happens next? Lots and lots of sexytimes. I really thought the way Cassia's phobia was handled was great. Quinton's a "master" for many reasons, but holy smokes, he mostly turns Cassia inside-out under varying degrees of darkness. When they take their incendiary passion back to her place, she spends her first, second, and third nights sleeping without a night lamp since she'd survived the cave-in. I loved how these two grew together over more than just their shared kink. Their no-strings "therapeutic" sex-capades soon turn into dates and adventures that have nothing to do with sexy-dark-interludes, but deepen the connection between them. I think I would have liked a scene that showed Cassia dealing with the dark on her own--to see how she'd grown past some of her fears, I wasn't sad with the happy ending. Not at all.

Mastering Her Senses is everything I crave and more in a BDSM romance; and what I come to expect from Laura Kaye. Master Quinton is a very captivating Dom, from the beginning I found myself being drawn to him and his caring heart. Two years ago, Master Q was to do a scene with a sub named Cassia, but that chance never came as for Submissive Cassia stood Master Q up. Now with Cassia back in the scene Master Q would like an answer to that very question. Will Cassia give it willingly or will it take Master Q special talents to convince her? Cassia comes back to Blasphemy after a two-year stint, her last memory was of the scene she was to do with Master Q. Unfortunately, her life took a different direction when Cassia finds herself struggling to stay alive. Suffering from panic attacks can Cassia overcome this road block, to free herself from the nightmare. Can she let Master Q in to help? As each scene develops between Master Q and Cassia my heart rate picks up. From the beginning their connection is strong, and only grows stronger throughout Mastering Her Senses. Ms. Kaye delivers on the special bond I like seeing in her stories. Master Q and Cassia’s bond is more than sexual it is healing on both sides. Can that be enough for them to build their D/s relationship? I had a range of emotions flowing from Laughter, to tears and in the end understanding and love. Supporting characters are the other Dom’s from club Blasphemy, who I adore immensely. I was happy to see Ms. Kaye bringing them all back to lend support to Master Q and Cassia. Laura Kaye knows how to pen an intense story that hooks me from the beginning and leaves me with wanting more. *grins* Ms. Kaye’s characters are easy to love, even in times of struggle. Mastering Her Senses is book two in the Blasphemy Series. I can’t wait to see which Dom is going down next. Rated 5 Stilettos and a Recommended Read by Deb!

Mastering Her Senses is the third book in this incredible series. There are 12 altogether, which gives me a giddy glee that there are so many more coming.It just delights all of my subbie senses as well. This is one BDSM club that should seriously be built, it sounds like a kink-lovers playground. In this third installment, we get to play with our resident bar manager, Q, or Master Quentin Ross. If you may remember, he’s the one who likes using the senses, and operates the deprivation tank. Who more perfect for him than sub Cassia Locke? She has a phobia of the dark, and for a good reason. (which you can read about.) After finding her in a state of panic, he takes her on and decides to help her out. This was yet another book filled with yummy BDSM decadence, a nice romance, and some incredible writing on Laura Kaye’s part. We also get to see some cross story with the Raven Riders series as Cassia’s brother is one of their members. If you are looking for a new BDSM series to read, then this is most definitely the one you want to pick up. You won’t be sorry!!!

The Blasphemy series is the only thing I’ve read from author Laura Kaye, but I’m happy to say that I’ve found a new author to add to my faves. Mastering Her Senses is book 2 in the series, and it’s Master Quinton’s story. He’s one of 12 masters running the exclusive BDSM club, Blasphemy. Master Quinton and the submissive, Cassia, had made plans to meet for a scene, but Cassia never showed. Now, two years later, she appears back at Blasphemy looking to return to the lifestyle. Quinton is intrigued, not just because he wants to know why she stood him up, but because his interest in sensory deprivation seems to be just what Cassia needs. Most Doms in BDSM stories are intense and intimidating, both in a scene and out. There’s something different about Master Quinton, though. While there’s no question he’s serious about the lifestyle, he also has a soft side that absolutely won me over. It was easy to tell from the beginning that it wouldn’t be long before Quinton and Cassia’s no-strings-attached arrangement would be short lived. Strings seem to have a mind of their own, as they both began to realize. Mastering Her Senses has all the stuff I look for in an erotic romance, but with a tender angle that I absolutely adored. Four-and-a-half stars.

MASTERING HER SENSES is the second full length installment in Laura Kaye’s contemporary, adult BLASPHEMY erotic, BDSM, romance series focusing on the exclusive BDSM club Blasphemy. This is Blasphemy co-owner and Master Quinton Ross, and geologist Cassia Locke’s story line. MASTERING HER SENSES can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. There is a slight cross over with Laura’s Raven Riders MC series. Cassia is the sister to Raven Rider’s member Jackson ‘Jagger’ Locke. Told from dual third person perspectives (Cassia and Quinton) MASTERING HER SENSES follows the building relationship between Blasphemy co-owner and Master Quinton Ross, and geologist/submissive Cassia Locke. Years earlier, geologist Cassia Locke had been a submissive at Club Blasphemy but a work-place accident left our heroine with a panic disorder leaving her afraid of the dark. Upon her return to Blasphemy Cassia will encounter her former Master Quinton Ross who offers our heroine a ‘no-strings attached’ relationship to help her overcome her fear of the dark. A specialist in ‘sensory depravation’ kink Quinton will gain Cassia’s trust enabling her to slowly overcome the dark and frightening memories of the past. What ensues is the rekindling relationship and building romance between Cassia and Quinton, and Quinton’s realization that he wants more from Cassia than a Dom/sub relationship. The world building focuses on the BDSM lifestyle: the Dom/sub relationships, the backrooms, the rules, the regulations and the people who like to play the scenes. There is very little story line conflict between our leading couple but for a case of mistaken belief that forces Cassia to second guess her relationship with Quinton Ross. The $ex scenes are erotic and intense but I do have an issue with authors who use a particular word in their erotic, romance story lines-in my opinion it is unnecessary and cheapens the overall feel of the story. Kenna Sloane and Master Griffin Hudson (Bound to Submit #1) play secondary and supporting roles, as well as the introduction of Cassia’s brother Raven Rider MC member Jackson ‘Jagger’ Locke, and Master Wolf Henrikson whose story will be told next in the 1001 Dark Nights novella Eyes on You (July 2017). MASTERING HER SENSES is a quick read; an erotic tale; a romantic story about one woman’s struggle to move on from the past, and one man’s belief in the woman with whom he is falling in love. The premise is emotional and dramatic; the romance is seductive and compelling; the characters are colorful, intelligent and spirited. MASTERING HER SENSES is a great addition to Laura Kaye’s BLASPHEMY series.

I was a bit unsure of how I was going to like Mastering Her Senses. I usually prefer my alpha male protagonists to be pretty serious. However, I should not have doubted Laura Kaye because she has never let me down!! I really enjoyed this book. With Master Quinton Kaye struck a perfect balance between lighthearted banter and some seriously sexy moments. Quinton works very hard at running the food and drink aspect at Blasphemy, which only means that he plays that much harder when he steps out from behind the bar. His specialty is sensory deprivation and he uses his many talents to help Cassia, a woman who stood him up two years ago. And Cassia was a wonderful match for Quinton. As in all of Kaye’s books, she writes interesting, strong and intelligent leading females. Cassia is a geologist that suffered a horrific accident while exploring a cave and needs Master Quinton to help her to overcome her fears. And Quinton does just that with patience and great care. When detailing the methods that he uses to help Cassia it becomes very apparent that Kaye has done some thorough research when it comes to the BDSM lifestyle. (I would LOVE to get a gander at that woman’s Google history!). Kaye is very thorough and is so unbelievably descriptive that I often felt like a voyeur when reading the dungeon scenes. The only issue I had with the book is that I wish that it was longer. When the novels are this short I often feel like the relationship is a bit rushed so that it can reach it’s happy ending by the last page. I really wanted more background on both of the main characters and more scenes outside of the club to build on the simmering connection between Quinton and Cassia. Finally, I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the crossover to the Raven Rider world. I freaking love that series and it was great to see Jagger and Dare. It made me want to do a re-read of Ride Hard before Ride Rough comes out!

The Blasphemy series is a genius idea. Not only does Laura Kaye push the boundaries in her sensory overloaded stories, hidden inside of all the sensuality and heated exchanges is a valuable lesson. A person is only as weak as they allow themselves to be. Mastering Her Senses blends facing fears head on with discovering the power of inner strength. Cassia is so focused on her own fears that she doesn't realize that her tainted warrior of the night, has some demons of his own to stare down. Leave it to Ms. Kaye, her wounded warriors and broken princesses to take addictive to a whole new level.
