This review is from: Mastered (Kindle Edition)
I read this on a recommendation and started with a one off rather than a series.

In the product description the book is described as being set "within the rugged backdrop of the Scottish Highlands". There is no real proof of this and it could have been set anywhere as there were no descriptive passages of the scenery, apart from the wood at the beginning. The only descriptions were of clothing and interior decorating. For some reason the place names were fictitious.

None of the characters sounded in the least Scottish and why did the author write "gonna" and "wanna" throughout instead of "going to" and "want to"? I found that very annoying and made it seem as if the book had been written by a teenager. Andy's greeting to Oliver at the Halloween party of "Eh up bro", I found very confusing. That is an expression used by someone from the North of England not the North of Scotland.

Spell check would have been a useful addition to the book. "...massive whole in her life...". "...a broad groin spread across Oliver's face..." At least that last one was funny; if only accidentally.

I have no idea why the book was entitled "Mastered" as there was no mastering going on. Oliver was a moody, unlikeable bully whose "lovemaking" bordered on abuse. I have no idea why the lovely Kat put up with him. He stormed off if she said something he disagreed with without giving her a chance to explain and the "erotic" passages were anything but. I don't know if the title was supposed to suggest a BDSM relationship but it certainly wasn't.

I felt overwhelmed with all the unbelievable revelations pushed into the last chapter, which ended suddenly with a hint that there could be a follow-up.

I hope that the author's experience of men isn't based on Oliver. I felt he needed anger management counselling.

I also thought it was expensive for what it was.
