Product description

Product Description

I am Katya Waters.
A survivor of violence.
I fought death and won.
So why do I feel so dead inside?

Katya Waters is a small-town girl, mentally unprepared to deal with her deep, dark past. While walking in her sanctuary, her innocence was torn from her in the most brutal fashion- run to the ground as if she were an animal by a pack of vicious Hunters. After they wounded her spirit, they left her for dead.

How does one overcome a debilitating, tragic event? By strength, perseverance, and an unrelenting will to survive.

Out of desire, Katya no longer wanted to be the hunted. She hungered to be the hunter.

Finally taking her life into her own hands, Katya reached for what she’d earned, for the respect every human being so rightfully deserves.

By moving to a new city for the job of her dreams, Katya unwittingly brought her past nightmares to life, slowly drawing the repressed, dark memories into the light. With a deep desire to explore her true nature, Katya entered the BDSM Club, Restraint; never realizing there would be no escape from her secrets within the club’s walls. Katya’s entire existence turned into a living, breathing, never-ending therapy session from Hell.

The Boss pulled Katya into a thrilling game of Kat & Mouse as a way to force Katya to accept the truth of her past. Follow Katya’s heartbreaking journey as she connected the mystery of her past with her thrilling present.

… As long as I have a tomorrow, I can endure today.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

This is a review for the February 2015 edition of Restraint.

Katya's story had my emotions and thoughts all over the place. The horror that Katya went though as a teen had me desperately wanting her to become stronger and come out on top as she forges her new life. I liked her strength and her will to survive even though sometimes she came off a bit full of herself. As more is revealed I realised Katya has quite a negative view of herself and I wanted to challenge those views. She doesn't realise her worth.

The cast of characters in Restraint, particular her boss Ezra, behave in the most appalling ways and I wanted to strangle them, even though I loved them. More than once I wanted to yell at Katya to run far, far away from all these crazy people or climb into the book and protect her from their manipulative ways.

Katya's internal monologues sometimes went on a bit too long for me and I wanted to get out of her head and repetitive thoughts and back to the story, desperate to find out what was going on.

Restraint isn't your typical book and as the story unfolds you are never really sure what kind of ending your going to get which I loved.

Restraint is the first book in one of my favourite series and I eagerly await the re-release of the next book, Unleashed.

You will keep asking yourself WHY? That's when it hooks you in. Loved Katya & how her past has a bearing on the other characters. I'm not saying who, how or when. You are given little pieces to try & decipher Why? It then hooks you well & truly. There's so much going on - contradictions, ah moments & more. Ezra one damn frustrating person. One scene in particular with his fiancée at the end had me WTF? It's so crazy, annoying, mind boggling. But I would have rated it more had I known there was more to come. When I see an epilogue I think it's usually over, like final but no I hated how it ended - again WHY? It was damn good once you got your head around it but I marked it down due to the ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive!! 26 January 2013
By Liz Murach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Read Sept 2012

Wow!! NOT what I was expecting AT ALL! *So* much better!

Katya Waters has moved to a new city for the publishing job she's always dreamed of. She's a tough boss, but only because she's exceptional at her job. Katya has always felt the pull of her darker side, and the longing to satisfy those needs leads her to a BDSM club called Restraint. Here she encounters a mysterious man they call the "Boss". He claims to know everything about her, but how can that be? Immediately, he pulls her into a thrilling sexual game which ends only when she is able to connect the trauma of her past to the potential of her present.

To be honest, when I first began reading Restraint, I was positive that within five minutes I would be DNFing this book. The very beginning of the book is not written to my taste. It seemed cheap and cliche. The original introduction to the character of Katya Waters was less than stellar. She came off way too hard and coarse. However, within a short period of time, during her first trip to club Restraint, I started to become interested in the story. The more I read, the more invested I became. The more the characters revealed of themselves, the more curious I became. Until, eventually, I couldn't turn the pages fast enough! The mystery of the connection between Katya's traumatic past and exhilarating present was riveting. I could not put this book down for anything, and I didn't want it to end!

Thankfully, I realized this is a series by Erica Chilson, and there are a number of books that have been released. I haven't given an awful lot of detail about this story, and I understand that may be a little frustrating. But, trust me when I tell you, the best way to experience this book is to simply START READING!

Sexy, edgy and addicting! Don't miss this!!

4.5 Stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the BEST stories I have read in long while, POORLY EDITED 27 July 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
WOW!!!! I won't spend an hour explaining what the book was about...that was explained in the description and I don't want to give anything away. I WILL state that this was one of the BEST stories I have read yet in regards to erotic fiction. This was one of those books that you lose sleep over because you can't put it down and think about it when you can't be reading until it turns into a significant distraction in your life. The characters and story line were compelling with more than a few twists that keep you right on the edge... and at times uncontrollably voicing a shocked response to what you're reading despite the fact that it's two in the morning and your spouse is trying to sleep next to you.

Unfortunately, it was SO poorly edited I found myself constantly fixing the mistakes in the writing- dropped punctuation, forgetting an "s" at the end of a plural word, or a word written in the wrong tense. It actually made me mad because I loved the story so much. I mean I LOVED it! It was like having the most exquisite meal in front of you and as you begin to devour it further and take your second bite you find a long nasty hair in it.....and then another...and another.

Overall- this book was worth it, but I beg the author to edit, edit, edit because the more books like these I read the more upset I get that these books are being published without a FULL and thorough edit job. It insults me, as a reader, and I actually feel silly sometimes for reading these books and novellas because they are produced so unprofessionally. Erica Chilson-if you read this, feel free to send me manuscripts/rough drafts to edit and review because I love your writing despite my very honest review here. :)
I have begun to read the next book of the series and want to let you know that there are discrepancies about Ezra's occupation from one book to the next. There is a difference between the TWO mentioned (without giving too much away).
Thank you, thank you for the good read!

4.0 out of 5 stars You're in for one wild ride! 19 February 2015
By Carey S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Restraint by Erica Chilson is a new take on one of her current stories. Erica has taken the first book in her Mistress & Master of Restraint series and given it new life, not that the original wasn’t wonderful but I’ll tell you, having read both, I like this one much better but before I go on, let me give you a bit of a synopsis.
Restraint is the story of Katya Waters. When we first meet Katya, she’s starting a new job at a publishing house with a beautiful female assistant and a handsome male boss. She’s also wildly attracted to both but that’s beside the point. She works hard and plays even harder. She is a survivor of a horrific event which has shaped her interactions with people. She doesn’t like to be touched and is starting to feel the need for release. Her new boss and her assistant keep touching her and she can’t get away, so Kat decides she needs to blow off some steam. Her location of choice is the closest BDSM club called Restraint.
While there, she is claimed by the owner of the club and drawn into a twisted game of “Kat and mouse” where only her new Master knows the rules of the game. He will tell her though that he’s been stalking her for 3 years, got her her new job and they share a past……WTF????? Yeah that was her reaction.
As a fan of the original series, I was a bit leery when I heard that Erica was taking the same story and tweaking it a bit. Why mess with a good thing, right? Well I was proven waaaayyyy wrong. I love the retelling of this wonderful story and I couldn’t be happier. Having read both now, I do like this reinvention. The basic characters are the same but the story flows better with way more details than the original and there’s more of a “Kat and mouse” chase, which was something that I lost in the original story. I also love the new cover better than the original but I digress.
If you love dark erotica, mind fuckery, twists and turns and those WTF moments, you’re gonna love not only this book but the whole series. The characters are multi-dimensional and nothing like anything you’ve ever read. You are in for one wild f-ing ride when you get sucked into Erica Chilson’s Mistress & Master of Restraint series.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Beginning to a great series! 1 August 2013
By Di Covey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Awesome Book, competely original!

This is how it all starts!
Yep, its the beginning to the most shocking series I have ever read!

Open your mind to the Mistress and Masters of Restraint!
WELCOME TO THE GAME!
I decided to re-read my favorite series, I didn't write reviews when I read this the first time, I'm almost grateful I didn't!!!
I know the outcome, I know the 'GAME,' but nothing prepared me for the emotional rollercoaster ride I endured. I think everything was magnified because of the love I feel for these characters.
Katya- we almost forget the pain she went through, the game she was involved in, no choice of her own. I had tears running down face more than once.
Ezra- no matter what he does or who he chooses to mind- funk, I love him. I can't help it. It is what it is.
Cort- sigh- that's all I can say.
Aaron is beyond loyal to Ezra, it frustrated me, but I get it. **Forgiveness**

"I have a motto for our little gang- Hunter's pack. Don't ask for permission- ask for forgiveness. "

I'm happy to take this journey again!

Erica Chilson my Wicked Writer, Queen of mind-funkery!

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't Leave Me Much To Rave About 15 May 2013
By chibilee02 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
To me, this books seems like it has trouble figuring out what kind of book it wants to be. When you start in on it, you think you are reading a BDSM erotica. However, as you continue on, you quickly see that it's not a traditional BDSM story and also there's the added conflict of the female character's, Katya, trauma that she survived when she was younger. The book tries to fuse these two aspects together, but it creates a story that is unsure of its own identity.

The story moves through scenes quickly and you are left feeling like you are missing something. When you want to focus on a certain aspect and know more, you are already going to another scene and are talking about another topic. I just felt the story was erratic, trying to be edgy and dramatic but ended up being frenetic with the idea of trying to get through everything before the book ends.

I never really got a full understanding of the main characters. You got a small inkling of who they are, but the book never really gives a fully developed illustration of who they were. The story seemed more focus on what they're doing and how Katya reacts to the actions of the trio, Ezra, Cortez, and Aaron. You never come to care for them. At times, I feel Katya acted brattish and petulant.

I never really got a full sense of what the book is. I know about the main plot and how the characters are all connected, but I didn't leave feeling anything for it. All I remember about this book was the feeling of the rambling nature of the narrative and not getting a full picture of the book's personality. It was neither a BDSM story or a story of a young woman coming to terms of her traumatic event. Like the book's main female lead, Katya, it never really figured out who it wanted to be.
