Rating: /5 stars
Publication Date: April 14, 2015

Amazon Kindle ** Amazon Paperback


Detective Atticus Ware gave up his beloved Idaho to start again in the mountains of California, close to his imprisoned brother. He has a rewarding job and friends, but the experienced Dominant wants more than the Do-Me submissives who flock around him. He needs a woman who will give her heart as well as her body.

Virginia, “Gin,” is damn good at her challenging career as a prison psychologist. However, one problem inmate is mired in misery and unable to overcome his guilt at causing a friend’s death.
To clear her mind, she joins a friend’s kinky backpacking excursion, planning to hide in her tent during the evening BDSM pursuits. But Atticus lures her into the activities. She’s read about BDSM, but submission under the hands of a powerful Dom is beyond anything she’d imagined. She doesn’t trust men, doesn’t want a relationship, and yet…wants more from him.

Finally, Atticus has found the woman he wants in his life. In his bed. In his cuffs. But she’s not only his brother’s therapist, but also works in a prison. How can he tolerate his woman walking into danger every single blasted day?

Gin knows she has no future with Atticus Ware, but still, hope is rising in her heart.


Again Cherise Sinclair delivered an amazing book. I have read all the books in the series with the exception of Edge of the enforcer and I found Master of Freedom the most action packed book in the series. Gin's work at the prison and her interaction with the inmates reminded me of Prison Break, one of my favorite TV shows.

The only problem I had with the book was the realization that all the heroines in the series have a past that is an obstacle to their relationships with their guys and it makes them feel insecure or feel bad for themselves. It's mostly an observation that I find a little cliche.

I liked how the author named a couple of authors who write BDSM novels and promoting them in this way and she didn't include herself (though if you have read one of her books, you will know that she doesn't need any self promo). I applaud that because I hate when the X author says: "X is such a talented author!" and things like that.

Seeing the characters from the previous novels in Master of Freedom is great. I loved seeing how they are doing after they get their happy endings. Becca and Logan have their baby and the others are so happy and in love and I love seeing them like that.

I fell in love with Sawyer, Atticu's brother. He is a great guy and I would advise you to not let yourself judge him for a mistake she made, hear him out first. Something that happened to him made me pause my reading and take a minute to digest what happened to him. That hasn't happened to me in a long time. Usually I continue my reading without a problem, but this time I stopped. That meant that I had not only liked Sawayer, but that I loved him, I really hope he will get a happy ending.
