He wants to dominate her senses—and her heart…

Quinton Ross has always been a thrill-seeker—so it’s no surprise that he’s drawn to extremes in the bedroom and at his BDSM club, Blasphemy, where he creates sense-depriving scenarios that blow submissives’ minds. Now if he could just find one who needs the rush as much as him…

Cassia Locke hasn’t played at Blasphemy since a caving accident left her with a paralyzing fear of the dark. Ready to fight, she knows just who to ask for help—the hard-bodied, funny-as-hell Dom she’d always crushed on—and once stood up.

Quinton is shocked and a little leery to see Cassia, but he can’t pass up the chance to dominate the alluring little sub this time. Introducing her to sensory deprivation becomes his new favorite obsession, and watching her fight fear is its own thrill. But when doubt threatens to send her running again, Quinton must find a way to master her senses—and her heart.


I was impressed by the author's previous book, Bound to Submit. Laura Kaye really did amazing job to bring out BDSM without over-exaggerating and that's why I'll keep reading this series. Unfortunately, Mastering Her Senses ended up just okay for me.

Since Quinton Ross inspired from Chris Pratt based on the author, I kept imagined Pratt's face as a dominant when I read this book. I just couldn't help feeling giddy for Master Quinton. He specialize in sensory deprivation. Quinton has easy-going attitude. I bet he's a wonderful and caring master.

Cassia Locke traumatized with the darkness because of her car accident. When Quinton found her in need guidance, he didn't hesitate to offer the help with no strings attached. Quinton really fulfill his role as a dominant and guide her with patient. He also has wicked talent to push Cassia out of her comfort zone. It was crazily sexy.

Right now, you’re blinded by fear in the darkness. I’m going to blind you with pleasure.

Mostly half of this book happened in the club. It was all about their scenes. But it didn't stop there. They went outside BDSM as a 'friends' which was a lie. They already attached to each other. It isn't much to know about Quinton but Cassia has an intriguing job as a geologist. Anyway, their mundane life didn't interest me much. I liked their chemistry better in BDSM scenes than the real life.

You want to be fucked, Cassia? Where anyone might hear us? Where anyone might see us? Out here in the darkness?”
“Yes, Sir,” she said, her voice thick with lust.
“Yes, Sir, what?”
“Yes, I want to get fucked. Right here. In the open. In the dark.”

Beside the chemistry issues, I hardly enjoy the story. No excitement. The plot was promising but there is no emotions also slow paced. After several BDSM scenes together, Cassia still has trust issue and run off. Very mature, huh. Also I didn't like how Quinton turns into ooey-gooey sweet talks and rushed their 'relationship' in the ending. Definitely insta-love for me. Overall, it was a good BDSM read for anyone wants to expand their kink. Just no for the romance.
