Nicoletta was sold at auction, and for twenty five years since, she has been looking for an escape from her husband. Unfortunately, she receives the open door through the death of her husband only to have it slammed in her face when she is captured by a sub-human monster.
Abdul has worked feverishly and to his ultimate heartache to push the woman he loves away. He is not what he seems and fears that he may hurt her in a fit of insanity. In order to keep her safe, he decides she is better off with him dead.
Unfortunately for both Nicoletta and Abdul, the monster that keeps them apart is one they will never be able to avoid. Once revealed, will Nicolleta forgive Abdul his deception or will she decide that he is too much of a monster to stay?
The shocking revelation of Abdul’s secret was wonderful to read and amazing to experience. It was made all the more shocking as by the time we find out the truth, the author has made us pity Nicoletta while cursing the cruelty of Abdul. Jaid Black has showcased her amazing ability to enthrall a reader and keep them reading. The Mastering is an excellent read, and I challenge the reader not to fall in love with Abdul themselves.
