Publisher's Summary

Pleasure and pain once again intertwine in the second installment of Sparrow Beckett's Masters Unleashed series, following Finding Master Right.

Known as a brat in the kink community, Everly can intimidate even the most experienced Dom. Then she meets Ambrose, a dominant who finds her ways amusing. Not only does he charm the pants off her, he makes her crave his mastery.

After being abandoned by his submissive, Ambrose has avoided any serious connections - until he meets Everly, who refuses to be ignored. But just when he thinks he's found the perfect sub, he finds out she's an anti-poverty activist with harsh opinions about the rich. Telling her he's wealthy will ruin everything, but he can't collar her with a huge lie hanging over them. Will the best thing that's ever happened to him walk away when she finds out the truth?

    "Loving the Men in this Series!"

    After book one in this series which I didn't love, I had not planned to continue but a friend told me that books 2 & 3 were better so I decided to give it another shot. I did like this book better and am hoping 3 is even better. I loved Ambrose, he was a good guy with good intentions and a guarded heart. I loved that even though he didn't want anything serious, once he realized his feelings he went for it instead of running (at least not for long) . Everly was ehh to me, I was getting tired of her pretending to be bratty and so proud of it. The sex was REALLY hot in this book. The narration was pretty good too.

    "Good, not great, but very good"
    Would you listen to Playing Hard to Master again? Why?

    Probably not but I don't regret listening to it the first time. I feel like BDSM books should come with possible trigger warnings. Because I have PTSD but I still enjoy BDSM romance novels. But I feel like books should have a list of certain topics it contains. I know it seems silly. But I can't listen to or read books if the character has a certain name. But that one is normally easy to check for before I get the book. I love BDSM and I did just fine with the first two books in the series. It was the fact that this time the character looked younger than her age and was a virgin, unlike the other women in the books prior to this one. It wasn't a bad book by any means. I just cannot safely re-listen to it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Aside from the needed trigger warning. I did love the main characters. There was depth and complexity and they addressed their conflicting ideas of what they should and shouldn't do.


    What about Samantha Cook’s performance did you like?

    Her voice was very pleasant to listen to and did not distract me from the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Normally yes, but do to the trigger issues I had to pause the book and walk away from it for a while before being able to remind my self it was only a book and being able to continue.


    Any additional comments?

    I feel it is no ones fault that this book ended up having triggers for me. I have no intention of leaving the BDSM or erotic book section because of it. I love a wide arrange of books from Young Adult to non fiction to romance/erotic to meditation and language books. However I don't know if it would be possible but it would be nice if there were potential trigger lists for erotic books. I know that makes me sound picky... But sometimes for romance/erotic books it would be nice to know if I should expect certain forms of intercourse and such. Just saying.
