Matteo Angelico, former Marine and experienced, longtime dominant, knows what he likes - sexy, submissive women who do what they're told. Hillary Morrow has learned all too well that D/s relationships don't always have fairy tale endings. But that hasn't stopped her from giving her heart away to the most commitment-phobic dominant in Boston: Matteo Angelico.

The story is predictable and not as good as book one. The narrator is one of the worst I've ever heard. After literally hundreds of books I would avoid listening to anything he narrates.

Elizabeth's life changed the moment she saw a sleek, black, limousine pull up to the curb outside the restaurant where she and her dearest friends were having a celebration dinner before going to the local club. Though she knew she shouldn't, she found herself stepping back into the shadows as the man she had bumped into earlier led his companion to the car. Her breath caught in her throat as she witnessed a scene that would follow her into her dreams.

This story is good with some predictability. The main character could have been developed more. The narrator made it almost impossible to finish listening. She is stilted and does a terrible job expressing emotion. Her portrayal of the characters left you cold.

The story is good but it was almost spoiled by the very bad fake dramatics of the narrator. You have to be determined to plow through her high school drama speech.

Offered the chance to train Ashley and initiate her into the D/s lifestyle, Keith is delighted to accept. Under the guidelines of a carefully crafted contract, they lose themselves in the pleasures and intimacies of being Master and submissive. But when Ashley and her daughter are threatened, Keith realizes she needs much more than a part-time Dom. To protect her, he will have to break through the barriers of their contract and finally face the demons haunting his heart.

The stories make you want a Dom who will take care of you the way that Keith does. There is vulnerability, hot sex and emotion. Ryan translates Lexi's words into a feeling you know the character and want to be part of their family. I hope there are many more of these audio books to come in the future.

Detective Atticus Ware gave up Idaho to start again in the California mountains, close to his imprisoned brother. Although he's found good friends, the experienced Dominant wants more than the "do me" submissives flocking around him. He needs a woman to give her heart, as well as her body. After Virginia Cunningham exhausts herself propping up a failing relationship, she accepts a social worker job far, far away in a California prison.

I have all of Cherise Sinclair's audio books. I truly enjoy the stories with their mature themes. This one was very difficult to listen to because the narrator was so bad. It is the first book I have listened to of his and I will strive to avoid listening to any others. His cadence and badly timed phrasing was distracting.

He's not the guy you date. He's the one night stand. You'd think the man who sends hot looks my way, who called me succulent, would want to strip me to my skin and spread me out on his bed like every other woman in Chicago. Except, he passed on my offer.... Just like I once passed on his. He's wary, like I am. He's broken, like I am. And everyone knows two broken parts can't ever make a whole.

The story was nice. A little long to get to the expected outcome. The narrator almost made me decide to not finish the audio book. She does a terrible job with male voices. She slowed the main character Tahoe down because she does not have a deep character voice making him sound unintelligent. Not worth a credit

When Rainie rushes an injured dog to a clinic, she's appalled to recognize the veterinarian, Jake Sheffield. So not fair. His memory has haunted her for over a decade. And then he showed up at her Shadowlands BDSM club. And now he owns the veterinary clinic? The gods of cruelty must be laughing at her.

This is another great work from Cherise Sinclair. The characters are well defined. The emotion feels real and the BDSM is well done. Noah Michael Levine's voicing makes you want to be part of the story. Please continue to write Cherise.

Luc Richard is the hottest player in the NHL - and it has nothing to do with hockey. His racy relationship with his supermodel ex set the tabloids on fire but nearly put his career on ice. To avoid being traded, Luc agrees to take a break from the spotlight - and from women - and spend the off-season at home in Silver Bay, Maine. It's the perfect plan...until he reconnects with Rose.

The story is fun and has a happy ending. The intimate scenes are good.

The female narrator did a much better job than the male narrator. His "French"accent needs some work so it's not as stilted and there are fewer breakthroughs of his natural style. While it did not usually take away from the listen it did not add to the sexiness of the writing.

Still a good listen
