First published as a six-part ebook serial novel, Opal Carew's His to Command is now available for the first time ever as a complete audiobook.
Her heart, her body, her soul - are his to command.
Kate is a modern businesswoman who knows exactly how to run her well-organized world. But underneath her professional exterior lurks a secret that she’s been running from for years - a fierce desire to be dominated that both exhilarates and terrifies her.
And there’s only one man who’s ever tempted her to lose control.
Powerful executive Matt Pearce gave Kate her first taste of what it means to surrender completely at the hands of a dominant man, and she's never been able to forget. Though she’s spent years trying to outrun her feelings for him, a chance encounter changes everything...and this time she might not be able to escape. Deciding to give in to her deepest desires, Kate agrees to spend a week at Matt’s mansion exploring her submissive side under his masterful instruction. Just when she starts to fall deeper and harder for him than ever before, a terrible secret from his past threatens to tear them apart, and Kate must decide whether to finally trust Matt with her heart...or leave him behind forever.

"Fresh, exciting and extremely hot, with characters you’ll fall in love with. Absolutely fantastic!" (Fresh Fiction)
The story itself was decent; however, Kate was so wishy-washy and immature it was seriously annoying. Nothing could ever make her not love Matt - except two seconds later when he told her his big secret and boom, she's out the door. Where's the conviction? She trusts him completely - but the minute another female, one who has completely lied to her before, tells her a tale - she's all about "did he do that or not?" Where's the trust? Where's the love?
More of the same .. alot of fluff, no real substance.
I seriously don't like this narrator. I've listened to her with a couple of other books. The whiny sllimy voice is seriously annoying. I won't download another book with her as narrator.
The premise of the book, the bones, were good, which is why I purchased it to begin with. More depth to the characters, less fluff and nonsense, it would have been a good story.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Ok, I'm sitting here enjoying this book with a secretive smile on my face and then my adult daughter walks by, looks at me and says, "Oh, it's one of those books isn't it?".Yes it's one of those books. One that makes my heart race and brings that little grin to my face because I love this kind of listen. It's my favorite kind of listen.
From Kate running from Matt in the mall, the evil woman trying to break the lovers apart, and to the BDSM sex. It was ALL good. So after all this you know I'm going to say YES it's worth your credit. Another plus it's just one book!!! I don't have to worry about waiting for another book or two to finish up the story.
Original story line.
Depends on the book.
Not bad. Just so so.
Absolutely nothing. I literally checked my two audiobook accounts to be sure I hadn't already listened to it.
My way in learning to relax is to read or to be read to audiblly!
The story line and the characters worse book purchased. I looked and saw it in the listeners review. I do know one mans junk is another mans treasure so to whom ever wrote the review I don't want you to feel attacked but the book was not what you set me up for
Story line I could have delt with not a problem, the story lacked energy
I think so
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
There was plenty of hot, steamy sex, and sex and more sex!
It had some Fifty, some BB and some pretty hard core BDSM....
I have said it before this woman can read a sex scene....Her female voice was better than her male voice but she did a great job.
There was a lot of explicit sex but the narrator does such a good job it doesn't sound crude or slimey. Kate and Matt were in love and enjoyed this type of sex, it was not forced or belittlement in any way. I enjoyed the listen.....
Have someone who knew how to build a story write the book and stop saying thing about body size and how fast and hard everything was. So stupid.
Disappointment in the writing and delivery.
Better story editing, came off less erotic, not sensual and more coarse, overuse of certain words
Scenes were described as a mechanical function at times, lost sensuality and weakened the story. Word choices poor
None, I would just tweak the story... the "horrible" thing he did to threaten relationship was weak
Let those who you love know today, tomorrow is not promised! Life experience, Mishawn
The narrator is just one one of the the few things I would change.
I'm just not a big fan of Clarissa Knightly? I don't know if it's the tone she talks with or if it is the dramatic way she tells the story.
I've listen to Opal Carew's other books with different narrators and I really enjoy them just not the ones with Clarissa Knightly.
Say something about yourself!
I admit I'm going through a phase right now. I want to read/listen to books about corporate alpha males and the reluctant heroin...that isn't this book. The erotic scenes were okay, but to he honest they lacked some intensity for supposedly being a Dom/Sub thing, even 50 shades was more dramatic. This book also lacked intensity where the plot was concerned and even the big reveal that was eluded to multiple times was just a let down. I compare it to my friend saying she cheated on her diet and giving this big hype and then she reveals she had a life saver...when I'm thinking she had a five course meal!
This is a story about a Dom/sub relationship that went wrong and two years later they see each other...she runs, he chases. In true alpha make style he manipulates the circumstances so she has to talk to him...for various reasons they hash out their misunderstandings and he offers to train her to accept her submissive side, and the story progresses from there complete with predictable things and a villain that had some real potential but they author never took it anywhere, very sad.
Overall this book was okay if you just want to hear about people screwing. I would not recommend this book for anyone who liked 50, or bared to you, or release me, beautiful disaster, or basically any intense book, there is NO intensity in this book....and some people are looking for that too, so if you are then here you go, if not move on!
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
This is not BDSM if that is what your looking for.. I think it is supposed to be... Well yes, it is supposed to be... but it totally wasn't for me. The female was just tooooooo sub... and the male was just not dom enough. Cute story though. I would recommend. I was just not call it BDSM.
Narration was not bad.
Credit. not a buy
