    When unworldly student Anastasia Steele first encountered the driven and dazzling young entrepreneur Christian Grey it sparked a sensual affair that changed both of their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and, ultimately, repelled by Christian’s singular erotic tastes, Ana demands a deeper commitment. Determined to keep her, Christian agrees. Now, Ana and Christian have it all - love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of possibilities for their future. But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Fifty Shades Freed to be better than the print version?

    Yes, It was great being able to listen to the story being read to me while I worked around the house.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the very exciting conclusion to the story and that all unanswered questions through out all three books were answered. I also LOVED that the epilog included the first chapter of the first book being retold from Christian's point of view.


    Have you listened to any of Becca Battoe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    All three of her readings of the Fifty Shades trilogy were very good through out.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Crop or Flogger?


    Any additional comments?

    This was one outstanding trilogy. I loved it start to finish. I hope E.L. James writes all three books from Christians point of view.

    A sadistic husband left Beth scarred, inside and out. Only at the Shadowlands BDSM club does she feel like a woman. But her fears limit her to Doms who won't overwhelm her--the very ones who cannot arouse her. The Master of the Shadowlands gives her an ultimatum: accept the Dom he assigns or lose her membership. The last thing Beth wants is a ruthless, powerful Dom, but that's just what she gets.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would. This is a great audio book and a welcome addition to the Masters of the Shadowlands series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that Master Nolan was an average looking guy and that he was so sensitive to Beth's needs.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene were Master Nolan rescues Beth from her abusive husband.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I loved how Beth was so determined to stand on her own two feet. I love how she falls for Master Nolan at Club Shadowlands and how he takes such good care of her. He is so very protective of her at all times.


    Any additional comments?

    All in all this is a fine addition to the series. Master Nolan is your average looking, hard working guy. Very rough around the edges and totally believable. Beth suffers so much at the hands of her abusive husband but still has a beautiful soul. Theirs is a love story for the ages.

    After Kari breaks up with her date during Beginner's Night at Club Shadowlands, she's given the option to continue with an experienced dominant. Despite her steamy fantasies about BDSM, the inexperienced schoolteacher plans to simply observe. Yet under the unyielding hands of Master Dan, she not only participates, but gives him everything he asks for. There is nothing she can hide from him. Not her passion - or her love.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved that Master Daniel was finally able to let go of his guilt and see Kari for the treasure she truly was.


    Which character – as performed by Noah Michael Levine – was your favorite?

    Master Daniel of course! He is such an intense character. I loved how He took charge of the situation after Kari's (then) boyfriend treated her poorly at the beginners class.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I loved the entire book. Kari is such a sweet soul. She so wanted Master Daniel and worked hard to break through His wall of defense.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the 2nd of the Masters of the Shadowlands series. I love all book. I am so excited to see that they are finally coming to Audible. I am looking forward to each of them as they come out. If you have not read any of Cherises books I encourage you to either listen on Audible or read on Amazon. (Or do both, like I do)

    When Jessica returns to Club Shadowlands after Master Z sends her a sexy teddy for the Submissive's Lingerie Night.


    Which character – as performed by Noah Michael Levine – was your favorite?

    Master Z. He is the greatest Dom around. Sexy and always in control. Noah really captured the spirit of the character.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, Near the end of the book when Jessica and Master Z decide to pursue a relationship inside and outside of the club. When Master Z tells Jessica that she may call Him Zachary when they are on a date outside the club but that she is to call him Sir or Master Z when they are at Club Shadowlands.


    Any additional comments?

    I have been hoping and wishing that the Shadowlands books would be released on Audible and my only question is: What took so LONG? The Shadowlands books are a wonderful series. Filled with memorable characters, Doms and subs alike. The wonderful things about Cherises books are that she writes characters that you feel you know. They are like visiting old friends. All likeable and relateable. So download this book, grab your headphones and relax. "Welcome to the Shadowlands".

And as the oldest surviving male of his race, his wisdom has always been respected without question. But Gideon knows that even he is vulnerable to the powerful, primitive desires that befall his kind during Hallowed moons---and nine years ago that truth was hammered home when he found himself claiming Magdalena, the Demon King's sister, in a wild embrace.

    Since time began, there have been Nightwalkers - the races of the night who live in the shadows of the moonlight. Love with humans is absolutely forbidden, and one man makes certain to uphold this ancient law: Jacob, the Enforcer. For 700 years, he has resisted temptation. But not tonight... Jacob knows the excuses his people give when the madness overtakes them and they fall prey to their lust for humans. He's heard every one and still brought the trespassers to justice. Immune to forbidden desires, uncontrollable hungers....

She thinks keeping her little “problem” under wraps from Dante won’t be so tough; after all, he’s ignored her for years, despite her best attempts at flirtation. But though Jaime is determined to face her problem alone, nothing can stop her from wanting him.... As Beta, Dante is responsible for the protection and safety of his entire pack. If a wolf is hiding something that could endanger the others, it’s his business to know about it....

    When a stalker ratchets up his attempts to get to her, cable sex-talk-show host Morgan O'Malley turns to Jack Cole - a self-proclaimed dominant - for help. Though Jack is a bodyguard, Morgan feels anything but safe in his presence. Because slowly and seductively, Jack is bringing her deepest fantasies to the surface. And when he bends her to his will, what's more shocking than her surrender is how much she enjoys it and how she starts to crave his masterful touch.
