Janet prefers her men submissive, her relationships confined to a club environment. Which is why her attraction to former Navy SEAL Max doesn’t make a lot of sense. There isn’t a submissive bone in his honed, muscular body, suggesting that her interest in him is best indulged as a private fantasy. After a crisis situation reveals a different side of them both, the attraction becomes mutual, explosive and undeniable. They take the plunge, willing to see if the give-and-take of their unexpected relationship can satisfy their deepest desires. Unfortunately, ghosts from their past might take the reins from them both, destroying the balance of power before their love can find a way to tip the scales.

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
Willing Sacrifice is the sixth book in the Knights of the Board Room series by Joey W. Hill. I chose this book because it is out of my comfort zone. I like male domination stories not female domination stories. However, I was very surprised with this story. While this is this is part of a series it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel.
Janet has a nickname of Ice Queen. She has been hurt in ways while on one hand is realistic but on the other hand is hard to believe someone would do that to another. She is a wonderful combination hard and soft. Max really makes this story. While Max is no sub, not now nor in the future will he ever be. He seems to enjoy Janet meeting her needs and indulging him with his after.
The chemistry between Janet and Max is explosive. The sex between Janet and Max is off the charts. I enjoyed the compromise Janet and Max came to so they could be together. I enjoyed that Janet respected Max, his needs and met her own needs as well.
The complaint i have is that I didn't like G. C. VonCloudts voice for Max. This really did interfere with the story for me as I just couldn't picture such a strong man like Max with the voice she used for him. He should of had a lower and more powerful tone. Her voice for Max and the picture in my head Clashed,- big time....
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
I must admit that this was well written.... however it just didn't work for me. I like the Alpha Heroes in a story to remain Alpha but in this book Max the ex Navy SEAL was constantly chasing and adapting for Janet the Heroine who was a very dominant dislikeable Dom. Both characters had a terrible event in their pasts which still haunts them today and was partly to blame for the Janet's personality but Max was thoughtful, sensitive and loving.
However, I didn't feel any romance until the very end but rather lots of very hot BDSM sex which, in parts, went way way over the top for me and without the romance it was just brutal and raw and I eventually skipped over some sex scenes. There was a bit of tension and excitement at the end but it was all too late by then.
Worth a credit? This is book 6 in The Knights Of The Boardroom series and, although it could be a stand-alone listen, it does contain all the couples and characters from those previous books which aren't (as I write this review) yet available on Audible. The narrator was ok but the total lack of mutual romance compared to the overload of some hardcore and shocking sex made me regret purchasing this..... so NO IMHO, not worth a credit.
