Title: Show Me Baby (A Masters of the Shadowlands Novella)
Author: Cherise Sinclair
Genre: BDSM Erotic Romance
Release Date: August 12 2014
Show Me Baby is part of the 1001 Dark Nights series… a collection of novellas that are breathtakingly sexy and magically romantic. Some are paranormal, some are erotic. Each and every one is compelling and page turning.
After his last lover chose her career over him, Jake knows he wants a woman who will put him at the top of her priorities—as he would with her. One of the trainees, Rainie, has caught his attention. Lush body, a gift for living life to the fullest, always laughing or smiling. Yeah. She trips all his switches. But she’s never given him a second look and that’s damned annoying.
Rainie has been burned enough times that she’s not going to get serious about any man. Sure, the BDSM club trainees are supposed to be looking for a permanent Dom, but no harm, no foul—they don’t need to know she lied. Trainees get to be involved in everything—and with everyone. But there’s one she avoids. Master Jake is always frowning at her. No matter how gorgeous he is, she doesn’t need any disapproving Dom up in her business.
Unfortunately, her best friends are having a double wedding. Little hearts are floating in the air. Every breath is filled with romance. Rainie is doomed.
Inspired by the exotic tales of The Arabian Nights, 1001 Dark Nights features 12 New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors.
In the original, Scheherazade desperately attempts to entertain her husband, the King of Persia, with nightly stories so that he will postpone her execution.
In this version, month after month, each of our fabulous authors puts a unique spin on the premise and creates a tale that a new Scheherazade tells long into the dark, dark night.
Show Me Baby is also a novella of Cherise Sinclair’s Masters of the Shadowlands series – pretty much our favourite erotic BDSM romance series out there!
5 “Show Me You Need Me” Stars
Show Me, Baby is a novella in Cherise Sinclair’s Masters of the Shadowlands series and yet another reason why this author is an automatic buy for me. I can’t seem to get enough of the sexy and domineering Masters and the feisty and mischievous subs that make up Club Shadowlands. Further, no one writes BDSM erotica tales like Cherise Sinclair does. No one. This author has spun yet another fantastic tale of romance, undeniable lust-filled chemistry, BDSM play that makes me squirm and some sweet and heart-felt moments that had me clutching my heart.
This sexy novella gives us the story of Master Jake and Rainie. Jake is a veterinarian who has served in the military. This gorgeous Dom now owns his own animal clinic with fellow Dom and friend, Saxon. Jake has shied away from more meaningful connections with Subs ever since his longtime sub left him to pursue her career. As a Master at Club Shadowlands Jake is one of the men in charge of overseeing the subs that are unattached. He may not be into a long-term commitment at this time, but Jake is definitely one to partake in the many single subs the club has to offer. That is, until Rainie walks into his clinic with a wounded dog she rescued. She may be a sub that has never given him a second glance; however, Jake is determined to pursue the lush brunette who is as sweet and she is sassy.
Rainie has not exactly lived an easy life. Being born to a neglectful mother, eventually landing in the foster care system and having been hurt by those she trusted more times that she can count has made Rainie erect some pretty high walls in order to protect her fragile heart. She feels like she is not good enough due to her shady background and wants nothing more than to move to a new city to start fresh, a place where she doesn’t run into anyone that knows about her past. Armed with an MBA, Rainie has the education to pursue a promising career. Now she just needs the money to leave. As a trainee, Rainie is supposed to be looking for a permanent Dom; however, she has no intention of doing this. Fairytales are simply myths and she has been taught enough life lessons to know that no man is going to come to her rescue and stand up for her. Little does Rainie know that she is going to be taught her first lesson about how not all men will turn their back on her when push comes to shove.
As Jake and Rainie spend more time in each other’s presence they both find it hard to deny the unshakable connection that is burning between them. Jake is everything that Rainie has always dreamed of in a man but can she believe that she is truly worthy of him. And, when it comes time for Rainie to pursue her career will she be just like Jake’s ex and leave him behind?
All in all, Show Me, Baby is a must read if you are a fan of this series. And, if you have yet to read this series or even a book by Cherise Sinclair and you are a fan of BDSM books, then smack yourself upside the head and get on it. This author does an incredible job transporting her reader into a world where the music is hypnotic, where the crack of a whip or the smack of a flogger can be heard all around you and where the scent of leather and sex surrounds you. Ms. Sinclair has created a series that she manages to keep fresh and intriguing with a family that you will fall in love with and will simply want to read about over and over again. I love the fact that you get to catch up with all the Masters and their beloved subs in each book. I for one adore this series and, with the introduction of new characters and changes within the club in this book, I’m excited for more books in this series.
