little I don t care how many times this Forbidden Knowledge plot line is run there is something about these stories I just love While I did enjoy Mastered I didn t love it like I usually do I am not sure if it is just timing or me but Evangeline was so weak throughout the majority of the story Drake was this domineering force in the beginning but when it came to Evangeline he was constantly cowering to her Don t get me wrong it is a fantastic trait in a character but it just didn t fit with the idea I had in my head I felt like Drake would act on something then had to constantly explain and reassure EvangelineObviously I enjoyed Mastered and I am very eager for the rest of their story but when you go into a story expecting one thing and get another it just throws you off sometimes
