There’s a monster in every closet, and I’m in yours
My name is Noah. I’m not a nice person. This isn’t cupcakes and candyland, love.
I’ll take you, break you, and offer you to the highest bidder without a second thought. You’re mine now. It’s business, nothing personal. You wouldn’t understand, and I’m not going to explain it. Sorry, love, you don’t mean a thing to me.
Just know that there’s a monster in every closet, and I’m in yours.

There is a light at the end of every dark tunnel, no matter how dim it may seem.
Noah is a "hunter". He hunts and kidnaps women in order to sell them to the highest bidder. When kidnapping his latest victim, Chasity White, Noah himself is turned into the hunted when instead he is kidnapped and held by Angeline.
Master Over You is a dark, raw, painful and can edge over a disturbing line at times. While I enjoy my dark reads as much as anyone else, at times this pushed on my comfort level a bit. This book shows the darkness of human trafficking, a painful topic.
The characters in this story are not your fresh faced, bright eyed dreamers. No, the characters of Master Over You are broken into tiny pieces. They are flawed, dangerous, and ruined beyond measure. There are no heros or heroines in this story unless you count a woman verging on psychotic and a man who makes no apologies for who he is and what he's done.
While the passion between characters is explosive and the sex is heated, I can't really see a happily ever after between these two especially with the amount of detachment Noah shows and the anger that remains boiling inside Angeline.
Although a story of redemption and second chances, don't expect this pairing to go skipping through a field of daisies while holding hands anytime soon. While the passion sizzles, the romance severely lacks.
Cerys is a USA Today Bestselling Author. She has charted on numerous best sellers and hot new release lists internationally and with multiple books.
Ethan is a gentleman, an author, a lover, and occasionally a rake, a cad, and a dom, but only if you've been good (punishing good girls is more entertaining than punishing the naughty ones). He lives in the Greater Boston area in a small town in New Hampshire where he grew up.
He has a penchant for exploring and traveling, with a passion for the unique and interesting. His interests include reading, exercising, laying on the beach, spanking (good girls), romancing, smiling, going for walks that lead to nowhere, hiking, bondage, and one day he would love to travel to Alaska.
His writing delves into the human experience, with a preference towards a psychological thriller twist. He loves mystery, dark romance, and suspense. While some of his writing may be twisted, he believes in romantic true love, above all things. His books include raw, real emotions, good and bad. He believes there is a light at the end of every dark tunnel, and his writing hopes to encompass that.
He loves happy endings, kissing, and a focus on the ordinary turned extraordinary.
