Uzuri fears big men, especially Doms. Master Z has allowed her two years to get her act together at Shadowlands, but her time is now up. Uzuri is looking for one short Master for herself, but she ends up with the Drago cousins who are not short, by any means.
Mischief & the Masters is the twelfth book of the Masters of the Shadowlands series and is one of the best in the series. Those that have followed this series know that Uzuri is a prankster and pulls pranks on those Masters that she trusts, thus earning a nickname of Mischief. She is also very soft hearted and will do anything she can for her friends, but she doesn’t open up to others or ask for help.
Alastair and Max are looking for someone, but aren’t sure they want to take on Uzuri’s problems. They agree to help at Master Z’s request. Uzuri ends up staying with them after almost getting run down. The chemistry between the three is scorching hot, but to voice their feeling as their relationship progresses will depend on what happens after Uzuri’s problems take a deadly turn.
The usual care about communication and safe words are threaded throughout the book as both Alastair and Max are the type of Doms most of us would want to have. They really look out for Uzuri, and even though they find some of her pranks funny, they don’t let her get away with disobedience. One incident also has consequences for a couple of her friends, though one thing Uzuri learned comes in handy at the end of the book.
The Masters and Shadowkittens from previous books all show up to help when needed. The way the author tends to weave the problems the main characters have, along with the solutions, kept me on the edge of my seat. Because of Uzuri’s penchant for pranks, there are also some very lighthearted moments and, at times, I was laughing aloud. This is also a book I could not stop reading once I started.
I am looking forward to seeing what Ms. Sinclair has in store for Holt in the future. Those that are fans will not be disappointed in this book at all. The wait was well worth it.
