Andrea has a problem with men but wants to have a Dom. She is about to give up when a friend calls in a favor and gets her into Club Shadowlands as a trainee. She feels out of place, but is willing to do what is necessary.

Master Cullen does not want to train Andrea and decides he is going to scare her enough to make her leave. He finds she is willing to stay, even though she is terrified and reacts when a man surprises her. Master Cullen is surprised by the feelings she inspires in him.

Ms. Sinclair has outdone herself with this installment of the Masters of the Shadowlands series. Once I started reading it, I could not put Lean On Me down. The author puts you right into the story and you feel like you are right there as Master Cullen and Andrea find their way with each other. The author did a beautiful job of letting you know what was going on and Andrea’s reactions to Master Cullen. Andrea has a background that makes her wary of men and how people react to her. She has never learned to ask for help and this drives Master Cullen crazy. The chemistry between to two is explosive so keep lots of ice on hand.

The additional characters that were introduced added to the story. Though you can read Lean On Me as a stand alone story, I recommend you read the entire Masters of the Shadowlands series to get the most out of it. This is one that will be read again.

I agree 100% with this review. Cullen caught my interest in the very first Shadowlands book and Andrea was a fantastically frustrating woman, exactly the type of challenge Cullen needed to win that big old heart of his. This one is my fave.
