Another awesome book by Cherise,my favorite author. Romance, steamy sex and excitement. I would highly recommend. Love her characters and continuing story lines. Not for the sexual prude.

I preferred Master of the Mountain to this book but still thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved the characters. All those mountain men sound so totally hot.

I just love Cherise Sinclair books. Her characters are real, they have issues just like everyone! Add sex and "voila" it's a hit!

HASH(0xb6919510) out of 5 stars Fantastic Sequel Dec 29 2010
By KT Dowling. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
If you enjoyed Master of The Mountain then this book is a must. Cherise Sinclair listened when readers demanded a sequel containing Logan's brother Jake and this is the result. It was well worth the wait. Fans of Cherise will know that she writes BDSM brilliantly showing all the love that can exist between the D/s. Her characters are fresh and believable but the men have that something extra which makes them so sexy.
Master of the Abyss tells the story of Kallie and her growing attraction to a man who has sworn off long term relationships. Their story unfolds beautifully against the mountain backdrop and the sex scenes sizzle just the way they're supposed to.
Both Logan and Rebecca appear in the story as do Simon and Rona from the Doms of Dark Haven novel. New characters are introduced too and I for one will be demanding a third book in the series.
If you like erotic fiction of the BDSM variety then I highly recommend all of Cherise's books. She can't write them quick enough for me.
Definitely top marks for this one.

HASH(0xb6962bc4) out of 5 stars Not As Good As The First Feb. 24 2011
By Shelby P - Published on Amazon.com

The first Cherise Sinclair book that I read was Master of the Mountain and I thoroughly enjoyed it. So much so that as soon as I was finished I wanted to start reading it again. Can't say the same for Master of the Abyss.

There wasn't enough romance and I didn't personally like the suspenseful aspect of the plot. The connection between Kallie and Jake could have been developed more before they had sex.

I did like Virgil's character. This is my first review ever so forgive me if it sucks :-)

HASH(0xb6974d80) out of 5 stars I Want A Mountain Master - HOT Read! March 22 2011
By The Bookish Snob - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I can't get enough of this author with her delicious Doms and I know I'm not the only one. I was looking for a quick hot read that would not only stir up the tingly bits but also sear my heart and MASTER OF THE ABYSS was hands down the best choice. Although I yearn for trips to Club Shadowlands (honestly who wouldn't with those sexy Masters running loose), Serenity Lodge has quickly become a place I love to visit because the owners and brothers, Jake and Logan, just sizzle with their strong and commanding ways. I expected the heat, I expected the deep sigh moments and I expected to find a thrilling Dom/sub relationship. What I didn't expect was to be hit of the head with emotion that stole my breath and left me with a smile on my face. Well.. I should've expected it but the intensity floored me.

Kallie is a tougher-than-nails kind of woman who would more likely swing a punch than get all girlie on you. She's had to be as she shelters a very fragile heart within a rough exterior and unflattering clothes. Deep in her heart, she hides the pain of feeling unloved and unwanted and refuses to put herself back in hurts way, even when she harbors an attraction for the local lodge owner Jake Hunt. That man is pure sex on a stick but with a strict "one night only" policy, she knows he won't take a single moment's notice of her. That is until he does and once he's set his sights on her, he rocks her world. Jake would never have thought he'd be attracted to Kallie but when he discovers she's a natural sexual submissive, he enforces the policy and invites her to a night of "play". One night becomes another and they both struggle to keep their feelings distant. Meanwhile, there is a killer loose on the mountain who looks for women filled with "demons". As things become crazy between Jake and Kallie, her protective cousins becoming involved, the killer targets her, bringing the story to a stunning conclusion. Will Jake suffer the loss of another woman and will he finally admit his love for Kallie? Even though Kallie has given her body into Jake's care, will she also give over to him her fear of abandonment? And finally, will the killer get his way, destroying Kallie in his sick belief of saving the men in her life?

Cherise Sinclair continues to suck me in, impress me, educate me and dazzle me with her stories and I loved the way MASTER OF THE ABYSS took over my senses. The setting for the book was definitely different from her Masters series but I loved watching the BDSM scene away from the club, music and mayhem. Even though the book was filled with erotic moments, I enjoyed imagining the scenery of the mountains and creeks as Jake and Kallie had their fill of each other. I loved the plot Cherise mixed in with the story - of a killer on the loose and the brief moments you spent in his head. Don't be fooled into thinking all this author can write is sex. She's amazing at weaving heavy emotions in her stories and her villain was completely convincing. The only thing that I missed in this book was the after scene "sub snuggle" that you find when you visit Club Shadowlands. After the Dom has taken his sub and pushed her to new heights of pleasure, I loved watching him wrap her up in a blanket and snuggle with her on his lap. There is a level of erotic sensuality and intimacy that comes from that kind of connection and was sad to see that didn't happen too much with Jake and Kallie. I will add though, when it did happen in the end, I was so choked up with tears streaming down my cheeks because the moment was so intense. I think that's what I love most about this author - she pushes her readers all the way like an observant Dom. She knows what we want, she knows what we need but it's at her discretion how we receive it. It was an amazing story and such a memorable experience

I really loved Kallie and Jake as a couple. I used to think being submissive was to be weak but that would definitely not be a word I'd use to describe Kallie. She is one tough character but with a real vulnerable side. Like with most tough exteriors, she hides a hidden hurt and I loved that Jake not only recognized that she had the false belief of not being wanted, but that he cared enough to help her work through it. He was one sexy man that looked beyond it all and saw into her heart, and took charge when it was needed to help her. I loved the way they played off each other. Both of them came to each other with baggage - one not feeling wanted and the other not wanting to be needed. But love doesn't care about those things and I had so much fun watching them realize just how much they truly cared for each other. There was so much intensity to this couple and I was so happy to reading their journey. Jake - like all of Cherise's Doms was sexy and commanding and I found myself wanting to submit to him and his firm demands weren't even meant for me. He had that tortured appeal that I loved and I completely enjoyed seeing him realize what he needed. *sigh* Totally fell in love with this couple.

This was such a great story and one I wholeheartedly encourage romance lovers to read. A great book and series for those new to the BDSM lifestyle and who have a curiosity for it. I don't regret exploring this branch of the genre and I'm eagerly looking for new authors. Give this book a try and I hope you fall as deeply for this Dom and sub as I have. Happy reading!

HASH(0xb69745e8) out of 5 stars Not as good as I hoped... July 8 2012
By Nhya - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This one was just alright to me. I love Jake. And I think this one would have captured me more if this story focused more on him, since this series is mainly about the Doms not really their subs. The sub is to be incorporated to fit into the growth of whatever issue the Dom has to overcome. While still being an individual herself. But sadly I just didnt feel that with this story. It focusd way too much on Kallie and her issues, her issues seemed to over shadow Jake's and her issues weren't really all that interesting. Or believable. Why she still swore up and down that her cousins did not really love her considering they were the only ones who not only took her in, but they didn't pass her on to the next family member a few years later. Like all her other relatives seemed to do. Although this was explained at the end, the fact that she included these men in that belief that no one cared for her, just doesn't ring true. They took care of her, fussed over her, changed their home to accomadate her. Since she was the only girl, they wanted her to feel comfortable and know she was wanted. So her insecurities about them, just made her come off as whinny to me. And since she dominated the story, it killed alot of the story for me.

There was a bit of suspense, but still very predictable.
None of the sex scenes were really interesting to me. There was nothing hot about them or really passionate. Again I think this was because of Kallie. Her dominance of this story. So I couldn't get into her and Jake as being together.

There were some funny moments in this one though. And some sweet ones too. So I would still recommend this read. Especially if you are following this series. But it just wasn't really my cup of tea.

Between the first book, Simon's novella, and this 2nd book, I'm still holding firm to my belief that the absolute best book in this series was the first book. Logan's story.

HASH(0xb6974f54) out of 5 stars It's Hot on the Mountain! Jan. 19 2011
By SavvyAtlGirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was so excited when I found out that Ms. Sinclair had written a sequel to Master of the Mountain because I fell in love with Logan and Rebecca's story, and was interested in knowing more about Logan's brother, Jake. Yet, you can jump right into this story without having read Master of the Mountain. The sex scenes are scorching like I expect from Cherise Sinclair. However, her characters are always three-dimensional. The female love interest Kallie is strong in spirit, soft at heart and an excellent match for Jake. Furthermore, the progression of their relationship is fast, but not rushed. Included is a suspenseful thriller component to the book, which is quite interesting and fits well. This is an awesome book for any BDSM erotica fan.
