Summary

From the author of Mastered and Dominated comes the third Enforcers novel - the searing story of a woman who finds sanctuary in surrender....

He can't change who he is....

A horrific childhood has made Silas the man he is today: dangerous, distrustful, and demanding. He's lived in self-imposed solitude, convinced that no woman could ever accept his need for absolute control - in business and pleasure. That is, until a young violinist walks into one of his buildings and into his life.

She can't change what she wants....

Haley has been struggling to fulfill her father's dying wish: to attend a prestigious music school in New York City. But even working two jobs, she can't afford the tiniest of apartments. Seeing her hopeless and near tears, Silas vows to help and protect her, no matter the cost to himself. But when Haley meets his every demand with unwavering acceptance and love, he is overwhelmed by her goodness and gentle spirit. He knows that the dark stain on his soul can never be erased - and rather than risk destroying the most beautiful thing he's ever experienced, he knows he'll have to do the hardest thing he's ever had to face. Let her go. But he's totally unprepared for the lengths Haley will go to fight for his love and a future brighter than the sun....

Silas and Hayley.

Hayley is a violinist down on her luck when she loses everything she cares about. Then she crosses paths with Silas and her life takes a positive turn.....for a minute.

From the moment Silas saw Hayley he had to have her. Without her knowledge he manipulates a situation which puts her in his apartment building in the apartment next door to his. He secretely stays up all night listening to her play the violin and doesn't go to sleep until she's finished. She has invaded his life! He can't get her out of his mind and he doesn't like....but he does.

Hayley can't get the stranger next door out of her mind. He is terrifying and alluring at the same time. One night while walking home from work fate forces a meeting between the two that will change their lives forever.

It was a good book but I have to say that the narrator was awful. Unfortunately Silas didn't learn from the mistakes Drake made and lost his mind when he lost Hayley. Fortunately he apologizes as good as Drake and wins her back.

This felt like a series but I'm a little disappointed that this is the last book written. I would have liked to see at least one more book for Maddox.

Best book in the series

Great story, full of action. non-stop! My favorite story in this series, not because of the sexual activities, but because of the passion felt.

Not her best

I wanted to love this novel. I loved the first two so much and loved Cylus' (not sure of the spelling) character so much, I wanted to see him find his HEA. I'm not sure if it was the writing, in it's self, of the narrator's interpretation of Haley's voice and inflections, but she came across as rather dorky. The story was completely predictable and didn't come across as true, at all. With the way that Cylus' character reacted to Drake's treatment of Evangeline, I was sorely disappointed that he repeated the behavior he identified as adhorant, in the last book. At my age, I certainly know that human nature of causes us to expect others to, "do as I say", rather then, " do as I do", but it came across as silly. I hope the next book has a different narrator, or at least, a different narrator doing any female voices, because this is not Jeremy York's strong suit; not at all. I also hope the next chapter follows a different plot pattern. If not, I am fairly sure I will give up on this series, which will be such a disappointment, because it started out so promising.

SILAS WAS INTRIGUING FROM BOOK ONE

I just love a brotherhood of hot, bad ass, alphas who flourish in the world of crime.

We meet Silas in the first book. He's the enforcer and so dangerous that even the other brothers fear him. His past is dark and tragic; he's a hot muscular drool worthy dominant who values his privacy and lives a quite life. With the type of work Silas is involved in security is a priority. He owns a small apartment building in Manhattan that probably has the best security in town.

Lenore is a country girl from Mississippi who received a partial music scholarship to a school in Manhattan. She's been house sitting and now has to find a place of her own. Everywhere she goes the rent is too high. When she goes into the building Silas owns he sees her on the security monitors, that are in his apartment, he sees her goodness, her innocence, she reminds him of Evangalene from Book 1 & 2. So Silas instructs his manager to rent to Lenore the apartment next to his at a very cheap price. This is their story....

There is romance, action, suspense, detailed sex, and humor but this isn't an instalove/sex story. Silas watches Lenore, knows her schedule and routine (may sound like a creeper but he's not). He keeps a distance because he doesn't think he good enough for her and doesn't want to bring her into his world of crime and danger.

Maya Banks has created a brotherhood that you instantly like and become invested in.

Jeremy York gives an entertaining performance. It took a little while to get used to his female voice. She's feisty and snarky with a country accent. The country accent is lacking but I didn't take points away because I think the publisher should've had a female performer.

Absolutely worth a credit/$$. You can listen to this as a stand alone but you're missing out if you don't listen to Mastered, Book 1 and Dominated, Book 2.

Deep and Dark

I am totally kept by this book, Maya was outstanding once again with the Enforcers. Silas closed his heart and really believe that he is a monster but as soon as Hailey enter in his life that’s about to change. With her music and her dreams she was able to capture his heart and his soul.

Great story

Silas’ story didn’t disappoint, it had lots of emotional aspects, as well as exciting dangerous ones. It was a very hot, detailed story. I’d recommend starting with book 1. Hope she eventually writes the other hot guys’ stories, especially Maddox.

OK

Didn't care for the story line and the accent the narrator gave the main female character, was just like nails on a chalk board to me.

One of the best

First, an obvious statement. You have to read books 1 and 2 to really appreciate this one. I read both, and liked them but with some reservations. Wasn't sure I'd read this one at all. So glad I did. First few chapters are comfortingly emotional. And quite a few after struck me as hilarious, although it could have been the mood set by the beginning.. In any case, I listened to this almost straight through; couldn't turn it off. Best book for me in a long time.
Pardon me now, I' starting on "BESAT".
