After ending her passionless marriage, Cali Reynolds is eager to live out her forbidden fantasies. Her first step is attending new members' night at The Den, the most exclusive sex club in town. Perhaps here she can find a man who understands her desire to be dominated....
At first, Jake McCallister thinks Cali has come to his club for the wrong reasons. But when he discovers she is seeking fulfillment after years of denial, he's intrigued - and takes it upon himself to initiate her into the pleasures she's been missing.
Her first encounter with Jake is everything Cali has always craved, and more; she's not prepared for the feelings he inspires in her. And Jake is just as surprised by his overwhelming attraction to Cali. As their play intensifies, so does their bond. Now, Jake doesn't want anyone but Cali - but is he ready to officially claim her? And will she submit to being his forever?

Wild about books.
Yes, It was so easy to set back and see the story in my mind. Every sound was so well done.
That the star was 44 years old. Not someone legal but who was just on the edge. Not a virgen but with history to add to the story.
This was my first but it won't be the last.
No, but it kept me right on the edge.
If you don't want to get over heated don't pick it up. WoW
Make no mistake between my personality and my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.........
First time with this author and narrator in which I was pleasantly surprised!! Reviews weren't that spectacular on Goodreads, so the narrator must have brought it the extra distance since I really enjoyed the book.
Obviously there is enough material for other books in the series, but don't see any planned?????
I very well might , because it was a very different view of the BD/SM genre. Most of the time it's always about control, and submission. This time it was about a dominant who started to develop feeling for his submissive, and she for him. (these things do happen)
Actually I really liked Jake, because he was helping Cali realize her desires. Also that Cali was an adult woman not a girl who after 25 years of marriage with an unfulfilled sex life wanted to finally get her rocks off and learn how to do it.
I never heard her before and she did an ok job, I think there could have been better narrators but she did the job quite well.
This was very different from most BD/SM stories. They explained more to people who are not familiar with the seen. The biggest thing is "Trust" and the trust is what most do not understand is that the submissive can end the seen at any time. So in essence the Sub has the power.
Home is where my books are.
I loved this book. It took me to places and emotions I never could have imagined on my own. If you've ever wondered what the the BDSM world was like, here is your chance to experience a version of it in the safety of your own mind.
Emily Cauldwell is brilliant as the reader. The combination of Lynda Aicher and Cauldwell is not to be missed.
From the author yes,from the narrator no
She was stiff,non-emotional,robotic. Her style was distracting from the story.
Yes there should be one for each of the club owners.
Avid reader and Audio books listener
I love that the characters were older
I liked them all
The first night
If you want a softer and sweeter BDSM story that is still a BDSM then this book is for you
It's not that I would change anything about the book itself, but I had a hard time relating and really caring about the main character. I ended up not really liking the person she was and ultimately found her kind of irritating.
Absolutely NOT!. I found Emily Cauldwell's narration very hard to listen to. I got very annoyed with the voices she played for both Cali and Jake. If it was narrated by someone different there is a chance I would've liked this story more.
Since I am in my early 20's and do not have any children it may have been hard for me to relate to Cali, since she is in her 40's, divorced, and has a daughter. (Which is most of her struggle throughout the entire book.) When I was reading the description for the book I didn't think that those parts of her life would play such a strong role. Knowing what I know now, I probably would not have bought this. However, if you can relate to those struggles that she has and you enjoy kinky romance novels than this may be the book for you!
The story itself was okay but seriously, listening to erotic sex scenes while the narrator talks in a monotone totally ruined it for me. Audible would do well to re-do the book with a different narrator.
I'm a fantasy book hoarder!! :-) I am a mother of two small beautful childeren and my books are my way of getting away for a little break!!!
I LOVE THIS STORY. I THINK IT CAPTURED WHAT A SUB AND A DOM SHOULD BE AND HOW MUCH TRUST GOES INTO A RELATIONSHIP LIKE THAT!! VERY GOOD!!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
An enlightening fast and interesting book from Lynda Aicher. I found the story Hot Spicy and entertaining. The narrator Emily Cauldwell does an excellent job. Oh how i love going to fantasy in my head lol. A very enjoyable listen. :)
