Publisher's Summary

From USA TODAY best-selling author Sky Corgan comes the riveting prequel to the Flesh series, told from Lucian Reddick's point of view.

Lucian Reddick has just lost his family in a tragic shooting. The pain he feels inside is almost too immense to bear, and he only knows of one way to drown it out. Sex is quickly becoming not enough though. He needs something more. Something darker.

Tables Turned

Ah, so now we find out a little more about the good Dr. Reddick and what makes him tick. We see his journey of how to cope with his immense guilt and pain after a tragedy robs him of his family. Being punished wasn't nearly as helpful or as stimulating as learning to dominate, and he decides to learn how to be a Dom through Flesh.

Great narration. Robert Coltrane and Violet Hemming do a great job of bringing the written work to life with their performances

I received this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review.

Nice beginning Story

I enjoyed reading the beginning of the story with Lucien. Being pre-Flesh, I was thinking it would be more about his family, before their demise. I thought it would tell us more about his wife and child, how they met, etc. Disappointed we didn't get more background on his relationship. Didn't mind it being so short since it was a before Flesh story.

Must read/listen if you enjoy the series

This short listen explains why Lucian is the way he is and how he got involved with Flesh. It is written in Lucian's POV. The narrator does a great Job bringing the story to life.

This audiobook was provided free of charge in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.

It's the gateway drug!

I am starting with the prequel and after listening to that... I can't wait to dive into the world of Flesh.

In Before Flesh, we meet Lucien and how he ended up getting involved with Flesh.

The narration was great. I can totally picture Lucien having Robert's exact voice.

A must listen if you like this series!

--I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review

This is my favorite so far of the series. I am not sure why, except that I love the character of Lucian, and his background is crucial to understanding his motivation into bdsm. This hour long episode gives us the history of how he came to be at Flesh and why...all up to when he goes to see Amy for the first time. I love the supporting characters in this episode too. Having his mistress shed some light into his mind.

Robert Coltrane is awesome in this as always. His voice is extremely sensual. My first Violet Hemming audio and she brought great depth to Grace's character.

Interesting novella

The story was interesting and I understand it was supposed to be intriguing to make you want to know more about Lucian’s back story with his family, but not enough of a cliffhanger to make me have to dive in right now.

The male narrator was good, his vice was smooth and even, but the female’s was grating and slightly annoying and not believable for the story. I liked that it was duet style.

3.5 Stars

Overall, this story was good but I didn’t get fully into it. Lucian’s past definitely piqued my interest and I’m curious about what will happen next, maybe even looking forward to it. I just didn’t particularly care about his scenes with Mistress.

Before Flesh

Not my favorite Sky Corgan listen. What I got from this is he was doing the submissive thing causes he was not right in the head. But the whole thing was topping from the bottom.

dark

Dr Lucian Bane is a plastic surgeon that is handsome, sexy and has dark tendencies.
He is in pain after the death of his wife and child.
The only way that satisfies him is the dark, lifestyle and sex. He needs control in his life
He wants to become a Dom, but he needs to learn the rules.
He takes a learning position at Flesh, a BDSM private club. learning all he can.
He fills his need , it's an escape for him.
Before Flesh is dark, intensely, hot and erotic.
Robert Coltrane and Violet Hemming narration is very good.
I was gifted this audio and offered my honest review.

Quickie that scotches

I haven't read the series this is based on, it's a bit out of context for me but I did however get a fairly rounded listen that was just a quickie
