R E V I E W ➠ This Is Who I Am by Cherise Sinclair

(Masters of the Shadowlands #7)


When trying to save a woman from slavers, Sam screwed up. Royally. Now Linda wants nothing to do with him. Or with BDSM. She won’t even admit she’s a masochist. As a dominant and sadist, he can give her what she needs, and when an opportunity arises, he slips into her life, intending to make amends. She’s everything he knew she would be…except for her bullheaded determination to be ‘normal’.
Now the horrible time is past, Linda just wants to return to her small conservative town, pick up her quiet life, and be normal. But how can someone who likes pain be ‘normal’? To her dismay, when someone spray-paints her home with obscenities, Sam shows up to rescue her. Again. Doesn’t he understand that the last thing she needs in her life is a sadist? He’s amused by her objections. But his dry sense of humor can’t disguise that he’s tough as nails and dominant and stubborn. He’s not going to let her drive him off this time. Soon she realizes she wants him to stay.
When he takes her to the Shadowlands, she feels as if she’s found a home…until she hears a voice from out of her nightmares.

RELEASE DATE: May 3, 2017

This is a NEW to me author that I think I saw on a recommendation while I was looking for another book, it all started with the first book Master Z and the blurb just called to me then I went in and FELL IN LOVE and here we are Book #7 late, I am still in love but THIS ONE is kind of a special one for me. It’s so raw and emotional but in the most sizzling and sexy way, the romance just gives you butterflies, the interactions between the H & H really just is all so well together. The author did a fantastic job on tackling some hard life experiences and events that will make your feelings burst. ONE OF THE BEST BDSM books I have read and would highly recommend this book but also the whole series. AND THERE IS 15 OF THEM, yes I said 15 books!

That said the Hero here Sam is actually a average man, well not physically but he owns a ranch, has various things that he dabbles into but also is a Master at the Shadowland’s Club and a Sadist. I will tell you right now I honestly did not realize how much of my own kink a Sadist is but holy shit, this book will either bring that out in you or you will just simply enjoy it for it has all of the check marks! What’s even the best part is that the characters are so funny, real, quirky and just you’ll love reading them!

Now let’s get to the part where some may trigger on. It does include slavery, rape, beatings that do not involve a kink and so forth. Real life trauma that one might have gone through. The author does a fantastic job on explaing everything including the good and the bad. I would have to say that to me personally I don’t have that trigger but it was for sure a learning experience. The heroine is so strong and the Hero is the best kind of man.

Shall I get to the kink? UM YESSS, I don’t even know how to explain it to anyone it just the butterflies, the need feeling, the sex, the kink and the words….and the after care cuddles *swoon*
