Publisher's Summary

In a city of sin broods an alpha tired of his past.

Criminal defense attorney Marcus Hayes’ bedroom is empty, but he can’t bring himself to fill it. Years of casual encounters and heated play sessions with seasoned submissives have left him numb - and the older he gets, the more the lifestyle loses its allure. The change he knows he needs isn’t easy to come by.

But change is closer than he thinks.

Beneath blinding strobe lights toils an omega eager for a better future. 

Lucian Bracknell is finally free from the horrors of the White Lotus brothel, and for the first time in his life, he’s on his own. Independence means discovering who he is and redefining his relationship with the world, but when he lands a bartending job at the Shepherd, that world turns upside down. Behind the Shepherd’s bar counter, Lucian is untouchable, and "no" is a drug he can’t get enough of. 

Until his eyes lock with those of an alpha he’s not allowed to have, and those firm "no’s" turn to whimpered "yes’s".

But forbidden desire this hot can’t be contained forever, and when the fires of their lust start to scorch, Marcus and Lucian will either have to succumb to the heat and face the consequences together, or burn with it until one of them falls on their knees and begs for relief.

An engaging audio

Scott once again has gripped me into another tale. Beg was thoroughly engaging and deeply engrossing. Pauley’s narration gives a lovely enhancement to bring dimension to this book. The characters are written with deep facets that add to the story. The underlying tension that only Pauley can bring sends shivers down my spine. Definitely worth a listen.

Great narration!

4 Stars!

Beg is book 2 in the His Command series by Piper Scott and it can technically be read as a standalone, however, the couple from book 1 features in this one and I really liked their story, so I suggest reading them in order.

While I liked Marcus and my heart broke for all Lucien had to go through, I wasn't completely engrossed in their story. Yes, they were hot together, but it felt a bit, I don't know, forced maybe? At least at first. It got better and by the epilogue, I even shed a few tears at how much Marcus and Lucien had grown as a couple.

Unfortunately, and this is more my issue than anything else, there were some plot points that were left unresolved or weren't really addressed in the end and that left me unsatisfied. First and foremost, the whole Adrian thing, really, I would've hoped for him to get his just desserts after how he treated Lucien. And then, the thing with the human trafficking case, which was just glossed over, why mention it if you're not doing anything with it?

Michael Pauley did an amazing job with the narration, though. His voice is very pleasant and while in some of his earlier works, it felt like he got a bit hyper, he's learned to modulate his tone and deliver a solid performance.

While not my favorite book, if possible grab the audio, Michael Pauley truly made the experience a whole lot better than just reading the story would have.

Not for the Faint of Heart - HOT!

Marcus, an Alpha Dom, is a criminal defense attorney who is getting tired with the lifestyle. The submissives that have been around and know what they are doing, just don't do it for Marcus anymore. Lucain is on his own for the first time in his life. Before now, he was in The White Lotus brothel, now, he wants to beg for Marcus!

This book is the second book of the "His Command" Series and while can stand alone, is best read as part of the series as aspects of this book first come up in the previous book. While this book is an Alpha/Omega, it also has a little extra with some BDSM added in to make it extra hot!

The characters are well written and developed in a way that is both believable and interesting. You are drawn into the story and want to know more about both of these men, and with the story being told from both perspectives, you are able to get a unique look at both characters and their mindset of the relationship (and all its ups and downs). Personally, I have read several BDSM books, and this one is one of the best that I have read. It not only goes into what is happening in the scene with the men (and in their minds) but also WHY it is happening the way it is! It was nice to see this instead of random scenes with no explanation other than a sexy scene.

The narration by Michael Pauley was exceptionally good with this. He did such a good job with the voices, especially Marcus. This book is one that you shouldn't miss!

Amazing.

Marcus and Luican are so HOT but so sweet too. I just love their story so much. Then to have Michael Pauley doing the narration just pulls me in to the story even more. I just had to keep on listening for how entertaining this story is.

Very entertaining

The combination of Mpreg with the Alpha/Omega dynamics and BDSM is something that we rarely find, but here we have it in spades.

I really enjoyed the characters' dynamics, how caring is Marcus, and how focused he is in Lucien's well-being. The way their relationship moves forward feels natural, and I simply loved how they worked out all the issues that both of them had.

Michael Pauley narration is very good, which adds to my enjoyment.

A great choice for those who enjoy the genre :)

Very powerful

I loved this story of Lucian and Marcus, especially watching Lucian grow and learn how to stand up for himself and what he wanted. There is a big difference between BDSM on your own terms and slave servitude against your will, and I thought the author showed that very well. The public scene would have been too much for me, but it suited the story and the characters. I would have loved to see A's reaction to the show! I loved the final wedding scene. As listeners, we already knew about the connection, but it was funny to see Lucian and his mentor come face to face at the event. If I have any disappointment, it was how easily the issue regarding the court case was settled. There could have been a little more angst and struggle with that, but I was certainly glad to see Marcus do the right thing without hesitation. I really loved Marcus' gentle and caring nature. Better to do it right, than to do it quickly.^_^ And he wasn't afraid to apologize when he thought he had done wrong.

I loved Michael Pauley's narration. He did a fantastic job giving Lucian a strong voice. He was beaten down, but not broken, and I loved the way that came through in Pauley's narration. Good speed and delivery, too.

I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook through the author. This is my honest, voluntary review.

Again with the Perfection

I love this series in ebook format, so I was very interested to see how the audiobook would be. After loving the first book (Obey), I was ecstatic to see that this one was also narrated by Michael Pauley, and boy does it not disappoint! Beg is easily one of my favorites from the entire series, and Pauley's excellent character voices and ability to handle emotion makes this my absolute favorite. Lucian is amazing, and Pauley manages both character's voices flawlessly.

Lucien finds a Master

Michael Pauley is one of my Top 5 favourite authors as he does such an awesome job of giving each character a distinct voice that matches their personalities.
I've been enjoying the audio releases of this series by the very talented Piper Scott as I read the e-books quite a while ago, so it was wonderful to rediscover them in audio with the quirks and humour well matched in Michael's performance skills.
We meet Lucien Bracknell briefly in Obey (the first book in the series) and it's good to see how he's come on since then in getting his life back together, even landing himself a job as a bartender at an exclusive Club.
Marcus Hayes, a successful lawyer and a true Dom, see something in the Shepherd's newest employee that piques his interest. Can he tempt Lucien into breaking the rules? and if he does, will the two manage to find their happily ever after?
Highly recommended Alpha/Omega Dom/Sub story.

Plot issues

I really wanted to love this one but it just fell short for me and I had several plot point issues, that I just didn't feel worked for me. Several times problems came up and then they were like we need to work this out, oh ok well lets work it out in bed instead and bam it was all better. I did really like the characters but and I felt their connection. But a few parts could have been handled better, instead of making my eyes roll

Great story with intriguing characters

A really good second book in the His Command series. We briefly met Lucian and Marcus in book one and they get their own story told now. It's wonderful to read how well Lucian is doing considering his history and how he's taking control of his future. Marcus throws that a little into disarray considering the type of relationship he would like to have.
Piper Scott has written a beautiful story full of dominance and submission with a bit of danger involved considering their relationship is forbidden within The Shepherd - Lucian's workplace and Marcus is a member. We get to hear occasionally from the MC's in book one and have a little more interaction with people from the Shepherd, Clarissa is the Bar Manager and Adrian a regular visitor. Their relationship develops throughout the book with a lot of heat and unexpected feelings for both men considering how they both lived their lives previously. It all progresses at a steady pace, nothing feels rushed.
Michael has done a fantastic job bringing to life all of the emotion that both men feel throughout this story. Whilst they are from different backgrounds and have vastly different experiences, I could feel the connection between them from the way the narration came across, full of feelings, tension and hesitations.
A must for fans of the d/s dynamic and those who enjoyed book one. A recommendation from me and I love everything from this great author.

Great listen

I really enjoyed this story and how Michael tells it. The characters were engaging with Lucien’s vulnerability as he is recovering his sense of worth, Marcus’ jadedness as to how his life is going and how together they find a spark for the future. This is the second book in the series and falls on after Obey.
Worth listening to.

Captivating

In Beg we learn how Lucian is rebuilding his life and learning about himself. Michael Pauley perfectly portrays Lucian’s determination and bravado. I found Lucian to be endearing. Marcus is a wonderfully strong Alpha. There is a wonderful tension between them which is enhanced by Michael Pauley’s characterisation of them. The way Marcus cares for Lucian in his submission is beautiful. Whilst this book stands alone I personally would recommend listening to the previous book, Obey.
I was given a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Great narrator, good story

I really love this narrator. I had a great sense of who the characters were throughout the story and I really enjoyed his performance - particularly of Lucien. The story is good. It moves on from the first book and focuses on Lucien, one of the omegas rescued from the White Lotus brothel. I enjoyed how determined he was to reclaim his life, and how sensitive Marcus was to him even before he found out about his past. The angst is fairly minimal given the potentially traumatic subject matter and I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing? Overall, if you like an omegaverse story then this is definitely a good one!

Love won't make you Beg

I really enjoyed this second Piper Scott book Beg, it's just as good as the first in the series, Obey.
Lucien, an omega, rebuilding his life after abuse, takes a job bartending in a BDSM club meets a bored, disillusioned Alpha named Marcus.
Piper Scott has a way of writing a sweet, gentle love story with hot sex and mild to moderate BDSM scenes, mixed in with knots and M/preg.
What more could you ask for?
