Mastering a Sinner (The Sinners Club #3) by Kate Pearce



Reviewed by Tabatha


On principle, I generally steer clear of FemDom books simply because they've never been my cup of tea. I've had one or two authors who have written them in a way that has worked for me in the past, but this one missed the mark. Sadly, I was kind of ambivalent reading Mastering a Sinner, and it wasn't the fact that Diana was a Domme. I honestly just couldn't connect with these two characters, and I frankly didn't think enough was spent on them to make me emotionally engaged in their relationship. For all the time they spent kinking it up, they simply didn't have enough intimate moments together to make me believe they fell in love. Lust...absolutely, but definitely not love because they really lacked a true emotional connection.

It's all rather unfortunate, because I think that this series has been really great so far. Mastering a Sinner had all the same level of intrigue and mystery going on, which quite surprised a few times, but I just didn't care one wit if these two could actually work things out between them. Alistair character was weak. It wasn't because he craved being dominated in the bedroom, but because he seemed exceedingly weak willed where his brother was concerned. Harry demonstrated time and time again that he had no love for Alistair, and I couldn't grasp as to why he put up with Harry at all. That above all was the biggest issue I think I had. I really understood his reasoning for craving dominance in the bedroom, and boy did he, but aside from his unwavering loyalty (for all save Harry) his character was just not all that appealing to me.

Overall, I think you can see that I didn't enjoy these characters, but I'm definitely going to continue on with this series though. There were some new revelations that come about that left me interested to see where things lead from here.
