Publisher's Summary

I was standing at the bar and waiting for a friend when it happened.

When my life changed forever.

She strutted inside with her head held high with grace, not pretentiousness. With legs that reached her neck, and an hourglass frame perfect for gripping, she got me hard instantly.

And those green eyes got the rest of my body hard too.

Mistaking me for the man who cheated on her friend, she walked up to me, those green eyes burning with fire, and she slapped me so hard my skin bubbled.

And damn, it felt good.

She slapped me two more times, using her petite size to gain momentum as her palm crushed into my skin.

I never wanted it to end.

I'd never met a woman who made pain feel so good. I'd never met a woman as strong as myself. I'd never met a woman I wanted to dominate more.

I'd never met a woman like her.

Rome Moretti.

My next submissive.

Buyer Beware

It's a CLIFFY. And not even a little bit. Like, all the way. Nothing irritates me more than not knowing a book has a cliffhanger going in. So I hope the next book is released soon.

But let's ignore that for the moment. It was a great listen. I felt the slow burn but it was still eventful while you felt the burn building. It does follow a lot of the same storylines as a lot of other BDSM books, but I like those and I like this one. Not an issue for me.

Michael Ferraiuolo is not my favorite because his slight lisp makes his voice not as alpha as I would like. But I have listened to enough books by him, that it doesn't bother me anymore. Lia Langola is one of my favorites and she doesn't disappoint at all.

One Hot Read!

Wow, this is one hot read/listen! If you liked Fifty Shades Of Grey, you will love this. This is much better. Even if you’re not into books with sex, the story of the characters draws you in and keeps you glued. I’m dying for the next one. I want to know more about the heroine’s past. I feel like something big is about to happen in regards to the man that showed up at her work at the end. This book isn’t just about the Dom/sub relationship, it’s about two people who have never really trusted anyone else. Rome still doesn’t know that Calloway owns a club called Ruin and what it is or what and who he really is inside. Calloway has yet to still learn the whole truth about Rome’s past. I feel like both characters are molding and shaping each other along the way. And whether they realize it or not, they are both falling in love.

I’m not sure I’ve ever listened to an audiobook where there was more than one narrator. I loved it! They both did an excellent job. Michael has a voice that could melt butter. Lia was superb with the female voices. They both should be on stage in movies. It wasn’t like the book was being read, it was like a movie playing in my head, and I feel like I know the characters.

Vanilla with a kick.

At the beginning Michaels female voice made me cringe. I wanted Michael to only do the boys and Lia to do girls///or both, Lia has a good mans tone///. Then I just became so engrossed with the story that I didn't care. I just had to know what happened next.
I am not interested in BDSM However, this story made me want to keep listening. Quinn brought me into the story to make me care, to make me want to fight all of the bad and cheer the good. I laughed out loud at the end and am looking forward to Quinn's next instalment.

Reminiscent Listen of Fifty Shades...

Victoria Quinn is a new author to me, while I have listened to both Lia Langola and Michael Ferraiuolo before. I have not listened to many BDSM books, but I found this one to be quite good and the performances excellent. I thought the story line was reminiscent of the Fifty Shades of Gray. The story is dark, twisted and sexy. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher, and/narrators.

Black Obsidian

What was one of the most memorable moments of Black Obsidian?

It was a great listen. I felt the slow burn but it was still eventful while you felt the burn building. It does follow a lot of the same storylines as a lot of other BDSM books, but I like those and I like this one.

Want more...Need more!

If all of the books were available I would clear my calendar and just constantly listen. I happen to love Michael Ferraiuolo's voice. He's perfect for these dark characters. But because I have an Audible addiction, yes I admit it. Ha His voice pulls me back to other characters I fell in love with, that I had to put them out of my head and just ride the waves of Michael's voice. I love how he can sound like the exact emotion the character is feeling.

I am ready for the next book!

HOT, Sizzling, Sexy, and SO Addicting

This is a must read for all fans of erotica. This story is in a league of its own. From the opening words to the final sentence, this book entices you and keeps you desiring more. The relationship of Rome and Calloway is intense. It is lust at first sight but then things twist. Calloway, a lifetime Dom, softens. Oh how intense that realization is.

Rome is sweet and innocent and definitely unaware of who is swooning her. But she falls hard and follows Calloway where ever he leads her. When Calloway pushes too hard, Rome pushes right back. The struggle for control is sexy and endearing.

I think what truly helped this story come to life is the narration. I did not feel as if someone was reading a book, but it felt like I was watching a play in my minds eye. Michael Ferraiuolo is phenomenal as Calloway and the male characters. He brings out all of Calloway's quirks, attitudes and emotions.

Lia Langola is the perfect Rome. Her voice brings out Rome's sweetness and stubbornness. Lia nailed how I envisioned Rome to be. Her narration made me feel every emotion Rome was feeling. Lia's narration helped me totally get lost in the book. It was a beautiful escape.
