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
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
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Beginning to a great series! 1 August 2013
By Di Covey - Published on

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!
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!

I was gifted a copy of Restraint for my honest review of the new revamped version. As I have not read this series before the Author revamped them, so I didn’t know what I was in for, and let’s just say wow!
Where do I start, the story for me was a little long and drawn out, but it had flow that grips you and keeps you turning the page.
The twists and turns of this story grip you until you become caught up their game of Kat & mouse. This is an intense Dark erotica, mind-games at it’s finest I have read dark and twisted and Erica takes it to a whole new level of Holy S*** moments. The crew of Master Ez and Katya along with Aaron, Cortez, Queen and Kayla you just never know what this group is going to do with you while you head into
Their journey. I look forward to reading the rest of this series to see just what happens next, and how much more Erica can use her mind-gamery skills on her readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars = I freaking LOVED this book!!! Review of 5th edition. 24 February 2015
By Angela S Goodrich - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I originally picked up Restraint as a Kindle freebie back in July 2012. At that time, it was common for me to “buy” six to ten freebies a day, so it was pure randomness that I actually read it within a couple of weeks of “buying” it. Upon doing so I was immediately compelled to buy and read the next three books that were available in the series. And while I have read several of the revised editions of Restraint, this is actually the first time I’ve ever written a review. Why? For me, Ms. Chilson happens to be one of those authors whose books affect me so viscerally that I have a hard time expressing my love for her work. She is my kink equivalent of Kristen Ashley – someone whose books are at the top of my reread list when I’m in a particular mood and whose work I love so much that I feel like anything I say is inadequate. And while my review writing skills have improved over the past year as a blogger, I still find myself grasping for the words that properly convey the depth of emotions I experienced when I read the 5th edition of Restraint.

As our criminal justice system has improved over the decades, I am fortunately among what seems to be becoming a minority in this country – a woman who has never been sexually assaulted, molested, or intimidated. I share this fact because I feel it is important to note that in the case of Restraint I have absolutely no personal experience from which to draw upon. Yet, Ms. Chilson has such a way with the English language that I felt Katya’s emotional violation each and every time she relived her assault in her dreams and memories. And while the act itself is horrific, there is a beauty in the way the author conveys Kat’s memory of the events and how with each recollection, more and more details about that fateful day are revealed to her by her subconscious mind – something I can appreciate due to my education. Even though the catalyst for Kat’s story is that day, Restraint is actually about the first part of Katya’s journey to healing and becoming who she was meant to be. That she takes this journey accompanied by a merry band of psychopaths (not really and said with affection) makes her tale all that more interesting. Even though this is easily the 10th time I have read Restraint, I still find myself overwhelmed by the sexual chemistry between Kat and Ezra, and Kat and Cort. Despite her past, or maybe because of her past, Kat’s need for dominance and submission is palpable as is the way she responds to those around her. Yet I feel I should note that Restraint is not an orgy – there is little actual sex, but there is tons of sexual tension and seduction occurring. Oh boy is there ever!

Restraint is the first book in the Mistress & Master of Restraint series and this (final) edition lays the groundwork for the entire series – of sorts. Ms. Chilson does an excellent job of introducing us to many of the key players, especially Ezra, Cortez, Aaron, and Queen, as well as acquainting the reader with a couple of characters earlier in the series than previously occurred. As someone who has read books 1-11 (most of them multiple times), it is easy for me to see where the author has tightened the storyline, closed plot holes that developed in later books, and provided more foreshadowing of future events that won’t mean anything to newcomers until the secrets are revealed later in the series but fans of the series will be thinking “oooohhh, I know what that means” while grinning like a loon <= yes, I did that several times while reading this edition of Restraint. I absolutely loved revisiting Katya and the gang and cannot wait to see what changes Ms. Chilson makes to Unleashed, hopefully sooner rather than later as I find myself drawn back into the world of Restraint, a ready and willing observer of the games afoot.
