Dominated Summary

Dominated - The desire that exploded in Mastered continues its conflagration in the second novel in the Enforcers series—from the New York Times bestselling author of the Surrender Trilogy.
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.
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.

Dominated Review

  • Horrid sequel

    By Cedenos
    MB stated it best "Evangeline is a hapless twit." To forgive the unthinkable twice? To not ask questions about what your lover does even after being kidnapped?! One does not have to be a "ball buster" or "rampant feminist" (as mentioned by MB) to be a good female lead. Evangeline is utterly ridiculous. I cannot fathom such a female exists. I have adored all previous MB books and the scorching D/S aspects especially - this novel is a true departure from her norm and a true regression of the female character. Don't bother buying this one - borrow it from your library, but only if you truly have nothing else to read. It's just the worst.
  • Wow

    By Book rader
    This was an amazing book I laughed cried......can't describe....just wow
  • Well, this was awful!

    By Miss Nessy
    Wow Maya, you really went off the grid this time. Evangeline was a sniveling spineless twit. Cried through the entire book. Drake was a total screwup who not only humiliated the "light of his life" not once, but twice and reduced his "Enforcers" to coddling Evangeline by going shopping, making hair appointments, decorating Christmas trees and doing floral arrangements with twinkling lights for the wedding. In a word, this book was nauseating to the extreme. I've never been this disgusted with a character like Evangeline.
  • Don't waste your money

    By Favshows
    I love this author but this book had me constantly rolling my eyes. No substance! Such a bore to read. Save your money.

  • Waste of money

    By RNita
    Disappointed with the main characters and the story. I love Maya Banks books, but this two books in the series were boring and without original substance.
  • Not as good as the first.

    By Joeygirl1980
    The first book was really good. Well written. Evangeline was a little babyish but not bad. This book not so much. I really could not get into this book like all the other well written books by Maya Banks. I found myself asking is it the same thing over and over. I was wanting to skim the book A LOT. All Evangeline did was whine and cry. Almost every chapter was like that and if it wasn't crying it was the same sex over and over. Some of the other scene were great but it didn't make up for the whole book. She was just to forgiving to easily. Like she didn't have a backbone. If she wasn't crying to Drake she was crying to her body guards. To the point it made Drake look physically abusive to her by ways he treated and talked to her. Then would say sorry and it's like oh I forgive you then the same thing would happen again. Not only that for someone so Dominate he lets another many have sex with her without a condom? Only later find out she is pregnant and not once was the question asked could there be a chance. For a dominate there was hardly and dominating in this book. He was always letting her run things. To me this book was just not as good as the others. But that's just my opinion. Doesn't mean you won't like it better.
  • Enjoyed this book!!!!

    By Pink/Dee
    I really enjoyed this book. I bought it on audio too, so I listened to it and it was so emotional and crazy up and down with everything. I know that they portray Evangaline to be a nit wit but in real life people from small towns don't really deal with that kind of stuff on a daily basis so she wouldn't have reason to question. She is someone who loves with her heart and defends with it too. I thought it was great that Drake and all his brothers/men got to see and feel the innocence of a human being. They from what is portrayed have never had unconditional love or friendship from anyone in their lives before and she is a wonder to them all. I just hope you make a 3rd book to tell us the honeymoon and the baby. Sorry I didn't mean to have spoiled an ending for everyone. I just want to know how they are doing and the life they will be leading now that they are married. Please write another one and soon!!!!! 😃😃😃 Thank you for the last 2 books I really enjoyed them.
