The stunning conclusion to the red-hot Enslaved erotica trilogy finds a curious young beauty baring more than her skin…Lovely, blonde, and young, Jessica accepted a job at New York’s most exclusive BDSM nightclub to make ends meet...and to satisfy her curiosity. Nobody is more intriguing than the BAD boys—Billionaire Arrogant Doms—a trio of unbelievably rich and sexy men. Jessica willingly gets involved with the group, shedding her formerly shy persona to explore the limits of her own desire. But she isn’t sure how vulnerable she wants to be...until the one BAD Boy who never wants to fall in love again—the gorgeous, passionate, and unexpectedly tender Roman—takes an interest in her, and Jessica finds herself drawn deeper into his world than she ever expected

Now this was the story I was looking for... Enraptured was the perfect blending of a Sadist (Roman) and a Submissive (Jessica).

Jessica was perfect for Roman, she was the perfect submissive for him and she also filled the lonely gap in his life. What I loved so much about this book was the relationship between these two, it just flowed. I mean it was just perfect. You ever read a story and you just knew just by reading a few pages that the couple was right for one another? Well it happened here in Enraptured….I just knew Jessica would be the one to pull Roman out of his funk.

In the 3rd and final book in the Enslaved Trilogy, our story starts with Roman Chase and in my opinion…the one true Dom in this group of BAD boys (Billionaire Arrogant Doms). He was the only arrogant Dom and the only one with TRUE experience because the man actually trained subs. But Roman was tired of that and he wanted something…no needed someone in his life permanently. He needed a true submissive that would fit his sadists feelings…his need to give pain.

Jessica was fucking perfect! Just fucking perfect for Roman. She was sweet, funny and she was a true submissive and even though the girl was new to the lifestyle and I do mean vanilla new. She never questioned (I mean she did, but it was never in a disrespectful way) or topped from the bottom AND my most hated thing to read….she was not a BRAT! The girl was perfect for Roman.

So as I said Jessica was new to the BDSM world…so lucky she came across a Dom who trained other submissives before. Here Roman was able to take his time and teach Jessica about the BDSM world and slowly train her on what he needed from her as a Sadists. And I know you’re probably thinking “omg, she’s new and with a Sadists?” Well, I think Shoshanna Evers did a wonderful job leading up to Roman’s story by letting us know first hand that he trained subs before…so to me it wasn't like she was just thrown into the lifestyle. She was in good hands with Roman.

“You changed my life,” he said, the smile lighting up his handsome face. “You brought the sunlight in”.

And this is what I loved most about the story. Jessica was able to give Roman what he needed as a sadist, but she was also able to draw real feelings out of him. He actually wanted Jessica in his life, needed her. And he in turn, was able to fulfill her needs as a submissive.

If I had any dislike of this story, it was the constant almost seeming thought that Jessica was after Roman because of his money….especially when Elisabeth & Lauren just put the shit out there.

“I think we’re worried about Roman,” Elisabeth said. “we don’t want to see him get his heart broken again”
“We've both been through it” Elisabeth said. “Suddenly having a Black Amex in your hand, having the world at your fingertips. It’s heady stuff. It can make a girl question her own motives.”

“Uh…ONE, bitch please speak for yourself."

Not once while reading this story did I think Jessica was in it for the doe….she actually was attracted to Roman and then eventually fell in love with him, even when he didn't commit (at the time!), she still wanted to stay with him. Me personally, I just think Elisabeth ass was jealous because she didn't have Roman to pine after her bratty ass no more. I just felt like she was so hypercritical, I mean didn't your ass come to Trevor broke & didn't he pay off your bills? Like fucking really, you have the gall to question someone else’s motives? And then pass it off as if you care about Roman? #getthefuckouttahere

*pats at hair and smooths skirt* as you can see I didn't like Elisabeth and Lauren (I liked her!) truly skated by my “bitch please” radar. But because Jessica wanted to please Roman, she took it all in stride.

As I said in my review of Enamored, I hoped that Shoshanna Evers brought her A game with Roman’s book and I have to say she did. She gave me exactly want I wanted….a true Dom matched with a perfect submissive.

This was truly a good end to this trilogy.

kk...this one will have to songs! Because I just felt they both fit perfectly.

  1. Lol Sharonda xD need a drink to cool off? *chuckles* I'm so glad you found a book where the bottom didn't fucking top, 'scuse my language but I get tired of hearing it in books! Ugh, enough with the I am woman and I won't be control bull! If that's the case, why the hell are you with a DOM!? >.< lawd!! Great review hon, I'm definitely picking these up :D

  2. gurl, I was never so frustrated while reading a book...oh I need a drink for reals...lmbo! I know..this really was just the perfect fitting of a Dom & sub.

    no worries...lols, I feel the same way Neyra & every time I read a book that have these women topping from the bottom or being brats, I'm always like what the hell is the point...smh. it really drives me nuts.

    I wasn't so crazy about book 1 & book 2 was a little better, but you do get a feel of Roman & how he works. Enraptured definitely blew them both out of the water :) Let me know what you think when you get a chance to read them.

  3. Great review, Sharonda! Submissive brats are my ultimate pet peeve, too! LOL This series sounds awesome - definitely putting it on my TBR list :)

  4. Hi Julie

    Thanks! I just do not get these brats...smh. I just din't think it fits in that world, ya know..,

    Oh please let me know what you think when u get a chance to read them ;)

  5. I have this trilogy but I have yet to read it. I'm not feeling BDSM erotica now BUT I like the sound of BAD. The arrogant part piques my interest.

  6. Hi Braine

    Let me know what you think when u read them...I wasn't really feeling books 1 & 2.

    I'm feeling you on the BDSM/erotica thing. I think the Genre is getting over saturated, but I will still have my go to authors for my reading kinks though.
