He ruined all her grand plans of ignoring him when he came back a hard and hot master....
After mysteriously missing for more than two months, the vanilla man of Catherine Woods' not-so-vanilla dreams turns up at her front door. The news he shares is too incredible to believe, but if she wants to work with him and verify it as fact, he requires her to agree to one thing.
"I'll be the man you need me to be. I'm prepared to explore your deepest, darkest fantasies. I want to take you down, put you on your knees, so I can lift you up and praise you after you've pleased me. I'm prepared to fight for the right to do this. You've been the ghost in my bed long enough. It's time you came out of the shadows. It's not going to be easy. It's not going to be gentle or nice, but we both know that's not what does it for you. This is."
When she saw the metal collar precariously hanging over two of his fingers, a hot thrill zinged through her. "You've been searching for a place." The steel glinted in the porch light as it slowly swung to and fro. "And here it is. Right where I want you. Wrapped around my fingers."
Catherine was prepared for many great things when Jude Wilde returned, but none of those things included him being transformed into a hard and hot master. When he was an arrogant, vanilla jerk, she could turn him away. Now? Now, she wasn't sure whether she was agreeing to be his because she wanted to verify inconceivable facts or experience the kind of hard he was offering.
Jude had been to hell and back. He'd survived, and now he was ready to live the kind of life that mattered...with her. He was tired of being haunted by the past he and Cat never got the chance to create. The here and now, that's what he was after - well, that and a chance at making her his before he needed to tell her the truth.

It one of my top five.
It was hot and sexy. There was romance and mystery.
Loved Jude and Cat.
I loved this story. It is the second book in the Make Me Series. Riley Murphy wrote an excellent story and it was told beautifully by Kai and Wen. I think they did an excellent job narrating this story and I look forward to listening to the third installment.
Definitely in the top five!!!
Jude!!! I gotta get me some of that man!!!!
I have and every performance is incredible!!!
You think you've seen hot before think again!!!
Love the way that Kai & Wen work together to put on a great performance. would really like more books to be done like this!
I would its a great follow up to book one and does exactly what sequels are suppose to do. Answer the unanswered question left over from book 1 bring us more in dept with supporting characters and bring closure to things that were left hanging in book 1
Think my favorite moment is when Jude stood guard outside of Catherine's house
I swear Wen is a dom in real life lol...
Him and Kai bring books to life and hook readers from the opening lines
I was shoked a lot of twists and turns in the plot that you never see coming
The plot of Pushed and Provoked is very in depth. The story can have so much fire you miss the details. Definitively worth hearing again.
Jude's relentless pursuit of Cat and his no apology attitude about it. Alpha with feelings
They play well off each other. And I enjoy the inflections of their tone when they are speaking for secondary characters.
It is rather long, but I would if I could. Anytime I had a free moment, I was listening.
LOVE this series and I love the fact that the plot is driving this story and the love story behind it only adds to it!!!!!
Say something about yourself!
This was a great continuation of this series. Great story for Jude and Cat. Great BDSM and romance. This story has a little bit of everything.
The best thing is to read/listen to provoked first to get the back story and know what's going on.
Cat. Her humor/sarcasm and just attitude is just great.
You just push yourself to finish this story it is so good.
This was a great read/listen. Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott did another great job keeping you interested in this book. You don't want to stop listening to this book.
The adventure was intriguing and kept me listening.
I enjoyed that the story answered some questions left over from the first book. However, the D/s portion seemed a little forced and didn't flow as well as it should have.
I really loved getting to know Cat's story with Jude. I liked that I got more answers of questions left from book one. This also let to more questiona hoping to get answered in the next book lol. I love these narrators! They compliment each other so well it makes it easier to get the female characters and male characters seperate without guessing. They really help bring the story to life.
Throughout Provoked, the first book in this series, I was very curious about whether I'd like this sequel or not. On the one hand, Catherine’s texts and phone calls to Charlie after they switched places with each other made me anxious to know what was going on between her and Jude. On the other hand, neither was a very likable character in the first book since Catherine was portrayed as the “brat” and Jude the “connected” villain. The author did a wonderful job turning that around. She made Jude downright lovable, and without changing Catherine’s character, she showed her side of things and the reasons behind her behavior. I was also surprised just how believable Riley made Jude’s transition from a “vanilla pudding pop” to a real dom. She showed how his experiences at the sanctuary changed him and dropped hints that he’d always had dominant thoughts and feelings.
Murphy’s letters from the characters are so insightful in highlighting the beauty in power exchanges. Jude really gets it and expresses it beautifully. I felt this book delves more into BDSM than the first one did. The love scenes are just as steamy, perhaps even more so, but they don’t overshadow the very suspenseful plot.
Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross’s narration is as wonderful as the writing. They nail all of the roles and draw you into the book. They are easily my favorite narrators. No one else I’ve heard even comes close.
