Unmatched Series #1 & #2 by Alyssa Turner

Universal Purchase Link

@debbiereadsbook, @Archaeolibrary, @alyturn

How dangerous is a submissive no Dom can resist?

Obsession over obligation.

Pleasure over pain.

Submission over sensibility.

Courage over consequences.

Even in Paris, the daughter of a United States Senator doesn’t belong with a Russian mafia prince, but she’s a fearless and inexperienced submissive about to rewrite all the rules for the Masters at Club Duval.

Note: This book contains detailed, darkly romantic scenes involving multiple partners. It is a slow burn that turns nuclear on the hotness scale and contains elements of BDSM.

4 out of 5 (very good)

When Oleg meets Samantha, he has no idea just how perfect she really is for him. But Oleg has responsibilities and Samantha is. . .broken. Henri, Ivan and Paola can all see how amazing Samantha will be, if only given the proper instruction. And the four Doms are the right men for the job.

I enjoyed this, I really did. It did NOT blow me away though and mostly, here’s why.

The SPEED at which things move for these people!

Samantha has only know these men for 3 weeks, and already she has been had by them all, all at once. They all know the power she has, have felt it’s reach but Oleg claims her as HIS first and foremost.

Going against his family obligations will bring Oleg nothing but pain and he doesn’t really want Samantha to feel that but she will not return home.

Because of Samantha’s condition (she does not feel fear) all three men give her a great deal of themselves in their first few scenes. Too much, I thought.

It doesn’t pull you in, really!

It’s well written, I think just Samantha and Oleg (but I’ve already started book 2 and Henri has a say so can’t be 100% that it is JUST Oleg and Samantha in book one!) have a say.

The four men, along with Ivan’s older brother Alexander, have a very close bond, calling the others their brothers. You can feel this bond jumping off the page, you really can. I think that’s the bit I enjoyed the most, rather than the scenes, to be honest. Just how deep these men feel for each other!

Oleg’s obligations are gonna catch up with him at some point, and it will be interesting to see how they do, given what comes out here.

4 good, but not especially hot, stars

The sound of a whip licking the floor should cause her to tremble. The whistle hiss of it cutting the air should tell her to run. The pin-prick kiss of leather should make her wince. These would be normal reactions, but Samantha Hunter couldn’t go back to being normal if she tried.

Oleg, her Master, is a king among kings in the BDSM world. He’s broken his promise to join two Mafia dynasties in an arranged marriage. Now a woman is dead and he owes a debt. Oleg will keep the woman he loves safe, even if it means placing her in the care of his oldest friend.

Dr. Henri Gerard is an expert with a knife. It’s his own scars that never seem to fade, and he is not alone. Sharing a scene is nothing new for him or his brother Doms of Club Duval. When one is made whole by the perfection of absolute control, the others feel gratified to witness it. But never, not once, have any of them shared a woman’s heart.

Is there room for two Doms to love one submissive? It won’t be easy... good thing Samantha likes things hard.

The Unmatched Series is part of the Love Has No Regrets collection.

This is the second book in the Unmatched duet and you really SHOULD read book one, Unmeasured, first. I enjoyed that book more than this one.

I read a lot, you know? And I particularly enjoy the more harder core BDSM books that are out there. So I was expecting to enjoy this one too, but, while a good read, I did not enjoy this one as much as book one. Why?? I've no idea, at all!

Samantha, Oleg and Henri all have their say, except for a little bit for Paolo at the end.

The three of them get their happy ever after, of sorts. The thing with Oleg's family bites him hard in the ass, and it took him getting shot for him to realise that it wasn't just Samantha that needed Henri, he did too.

I actualy found myself skipping over the scenes! Me! She who will always say she prefers her books on the more sexy side! They just didn't work well for me, and I can't pinpoint why, and I bloody hate that!

Still, glad that Samantha, Oleg and Henri get their act together! Just need Ivan and Paolo to get their act together and for Alexander and his love to be reunited. Will I read those stories? I will certainly read Ivan and Paolo getting in on!

Alyssa believes that when characters speak to you, you've got to listen. She's been all ears and writing stories in all lengths since childhood. She only wonders where those notebooks of handwritten dramas ended up.

Almost everyone tags her romances as habanero hot, and with her proclivity for the ménage genre, Alyssa is often recognized for weaving complexity and emotional depth into her characters. She has so much fun writing, she can never be relied upon to put the wash into the dryer any time after 10 PM. Luckily, she is married to the most understanding husband in the world.

The Love Has No Regrets collection of novels by Alyssa Turner includes several series with familiar characters threaded into each story. Her LHNR world is ever growing, spanning from Manhattan to Paris, with Polyamorous love that answers only to the heart. Read more about Alyssa Turner and preview her published works on her blog.
