He's on Top details the methods and adventures of those irresistible men who control their partners with a glance, a tickling whip, or a measured smack on the bottom. As true tops, the bossy hunks in these stories understand that BDSM is about exulting in power that is freely yielded. Contributors such as Amanda Earl, Mackenzie Cross, Alison Tyler, and Mike Kimera cover the full range of the male dom's brand of sensual sadism, from spanking and bondage to public sex and power exchange.

I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.
I swore I would not write a review on a book of erotica. But I can't not complain about this. I am 99.9% certain that the narrator on this was either a computer-generated voice or a human narrator's voice was altered to sound fake. It was as if the computer-generated recorded voice you get when you call Directory assistance and they ask "What City? What #?" was reading the book. Or the voice on my Garmin GPS that is always telling me to "turn left" or incessantly repeating "recalculating, recalculating" every time I make a wrong turn.
There was no space between sentences and no pauses for breath. Certain words were said at an entirely different rate, inflection and range than the words immediately before and after. And when the voice was supposed to relay a specific emotion, like passion, it sounded even more fake. If there was a human behind the voice of the narrator she should be appalled at the way her voice was "photo-shopped". If it was an entirely computer generated narration then I think that should be stated in the book info. There was nothing listenable, much less erotic about this narration. I have no idea about the quality of the writing or the story. I couldn't hear it.
I would recommend this book in written form. The narrating for the audio version is almost too much to bear. After listening to the introduction to the book, I almost didn't go further. It is the individual stories that kept me interested. Short stories but to the point with each one. Effective.
Less robotic, too staccato. It could be made better by a more natural reading of the stories.
She sounded like a computer generated voice and I don't think she took a breath the whole book.
