Publisher's Summary

Everyone approaches BDSM in their own way. Brothers Garrett, Brent, Grant, and Bryce are no different. While each are involved in the BDSM scene in some way, what they want varies. Dominants, submissives, and switches, get to know them as they find love and explore who they are and what they need. 

The Owners: A Bound & Controlled Prequel

Bound & Controlled is a gay BDSM club that offers its members a quiet place to meet and an intriguing place to play. Owners Ben and Conner watch over the club with a firm hand and a caring heart. When they see members who are unhappy or troubled, they can't resist stepping in and lending a helping hand.

Garrett

There were only so many times in a week you should have to see someone you were...attracted to...infatuated with...but certainly didn't have a crush on. Doms didn't have those. Especially on a customer who probably wasn't even gay, much less a sub. Business 101 - do not flirt with a client.   

Brent

Brent's legendary bad luck when it came to men was undeniable. If there was a wanna-be Dom in a hundred miles, he found them. But even he couldn't have predicted what would happen next. Mixed signals and too much time off won't make it any better, or will it?

Grant

Grant had always loved more feminine men. A sexy guy in lingerie just did it for him. But when you looked more like a bouncer than an insurance agent, the pretty guys ran for the hills. Carter seemed different, though. When he looked at Grant, he saw the real man underneath the tattoos and muscles. Could Grant make him understand that he liked Carter just the way he was?   

Bryce

Bryce was confident when it came to work and his family, but hesitant when it involved relationships. He'd found subs that he pulled to him and Doms that could make his knees weak for a scene or two, but no one that tugged at his heart or who could understand what it was like to be both a Dom and a sub - until he'd seen Troy and Oliver....

What a great introduction to BDSM

First, let me say I loved these books! I am not a typical reader of BDSM, but I thought I would give these a try. I am so glad I did.

If you’re hardcore into this lifestyle, these books might be a little “light weight “ for you. For those of us just looking for sexy fun- they’re perfect!

Each character was fabulous. I learned so much about the different types of lifestyle within this community. Who knew? The author did such a fabulous job making sure the characters were funny, strong, lovable and addictive! I’m sad the books came to an end. Great job Shaw! Thanks for the good read ❤️

Good series !!!!

This is the entire Bound and Controlled series. It is about a family of brothers who are in some way into the BDSM scene or D/s relationships. Each one is altogether different. I enjoyed how the story flowed from book to book. It would focus on a different brother each time but as a whole it was a continuation of the series. The brothers partners were my favorite they brand so much to the book with their quirky ways. I have to say I loved Oliver he was by far my favorite with Wyatt a close second.

This wasn’t the bdsm book I typically read. I’m used to more in depth scenes so this is a milder taste. That didn’t make it worse or better just different. I have also read several of the authors book under a different pen name that has characters more into the bdsm scene and more erotic that I absolutely loved. So depending your your preferences depends on which you prefer. I liked both but the deeper in scene(naughtier and tabooish ) is for me. I will be looking for more audios written by this Shaw Montgomery soon.

As for the narration this was my first audio by Kenneth Obi. He was good at voice distinguishing. Having so many characters it was difficult for to like them all but they were easy to tell who was talking. I really like how the story is told to you with emotion instead of just being read. I would definitely try one of his other narrations in the future.

I was given this audio in exchange for an honest review.

Brothers

I loved the brother banter with each other always threatening to call their Mom on each other. Audio wise I had trouble with the voices of telling the speakers apart from one another. More voice inflection with the steamy parts could have been a little better too. Overall good and will listen to it again.

Great box set! Both sweet and steamy!

This is a wonderful series! I love how sweet and caring all the characters are with each other. Apart from the relentless teasing between the brothers, of course, which was a lot of fun to listen to. Very recognizable for anyone with siblings!

It was great to be able to listen to all these stories in one sweep!
They are all connected and though each story focuses on one couple in particular, we are also kept in the loop as to what is happening with the other brothers and their (soon to be) lovers.
Each couple faces their own specific set of issues and overcomes them together, but there are no great conflicts between the happy couples themselves.
My personal favourites are Brent & Calen and Bryce, Oliver & Troy.

I loved how the brothers' mother was brought into the story. Her influence on her sons and the love they have for her is clear in each individual story, but we only get to meet her near the end of the third book (Grant). I thought it was super lovely to have the epilogue told from her perspective. I adored her!
Similarly, the choice to introduce all four brothers and their prospective partners via Ben and Connor in the short prequel The Owners was a really nice touch.

The narration was very well done! Kenneth Obi really brought the characters to life. I loved the choice to give Brent a deeper voice than his lover/dom, Calen.

Total Adoration

I loved meeting this unique family and their plus ones (or more). For a group of adult men, they frequently act like small boys waiting to tattle to mom. lol. I didn't like Nora (mom). She was way to nosey and in her son's business. The storylines are enticing and the narrator voice adds just the right tease and tickle for total enjoyment. I enjoyed seeing the relationships between the brothers (and their partners) . They truly seem to like and care about each other. I enjoyed the comraderie. Great fun read I'd highly recommend. BDSM elements are light and enhanced the read.

Great series

I completely fell in love with all the guys of this series. Not your average bdsm stories either. My only complaint is the last story felt a little flat. Kenneth Obi does a great job bringing this guys to life.

Great Series!

I loved reading this but hearing Kenneth Obi narrate it made it that much better! It was great that all four books are together in one audiobook as the stories are a little on the short side.

Great collection of kinky stories!

This is a great deal, considering that you can get these books on their own for full price, or get this one bundle that has all of them! There are 5 stories in this collection (well, a shorter prologue starter story and then the 4 main stories) one for each brother. These four brothers, Garrett, Brent, Grant, and Bryce, are all in the scene (as are their parents!) and work together as well. A couple are doms, one is a sub, and one is a switch. You get to learn all about these four through their stories.

Although you could get the stories on their own and just get one, I think these flow really well from one story into the next. They all work together, so you get to see them really interact together. Some of my favorite characters were Wyatt, Carter, and my favorites of the brothers is probably Grant.

I think that for people who are new to kink, this would be perfect. It's not too hardcore, and you get a nice mix of different forms of kink (lifestyle, scene-only, crossdressing kink, threesome, etc). There is romance, emotion, not too much angst or melodrama really, and happy endings.

For the most part I enjoyed the narrator. There were times where it was difficult to tell which person was talking, especially if it was all of the brothers together. Also sometimes the deeper voices seemed a bit too...forced? Not as natural sounding or something. But I loved his voice for Wyatt, he was a doll, and Oliver.

I received an audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Wonderful

I have to say I really enjoyed this audio book. Shaw has done a wonderful job in writing this story and Kenneth did a fabulous job narrating and bringing it to life
This is a super light intro to BDSM which shouldn’t offend anybody. A thoroughly enjoyable multi book listen.

Great Value

Love these stories as books, and was awaiting the audio box set eagerly. The narration is wonderful and having the whole set of books as a single audio download is fantastic value. I will definitely be listening to these again.

Brilliant audio

If you are someone looking for hardcore BDSM, then this set isn't for you. I wasn't looking for that, and I totally loved this box set.

The boxset is about four brothers, who all are into BDSM, but most definitely not in the same way. Each wanted something different, and I think this is what I loved the most - not all wanted to be doms, some wanted to be subs or even a dom/sub. It also showed the differences there are within BDSM.

Garrett - he was looking for a sub, and unbeknown to him, he had a sub visiting his office at work all the time, but he was oblivious to it all !! Wyatt just doesn't know what to do to make Garrett aware of him, and it was funny at times when Garretts brothers and co-workers would say something to him about Wyatt, and you could see he was totally clueless! They were the perfect match, Wyatt wanted someone to be his master, and to submit to them fully, and Garrett wanted someone to dominate - oh boy, when things began to happen, get ready to fan yourself.

Not Brent is so different to Garrett, he actually wants someone to submit to, and he knows who he wants to submit to, but how does he tell him - especially as it is a co-worker Kayland. He is also so afraid of losing the close friendship they have, and what he doesn't know is that Kayland is attracted to him, but like Brent he doesn't want to lose their friendship. Now enter the brothers, who decide that something must be done, and they do it - much to the displeasure of both Brent and Kayland.

The next story about Grant I really did love. I love stories that are about men who like to look feminine, and that was Carter. Carter it seemed, could not find a dom that would accept he liked to dress feminine - until he met Grant. As soon as Grant saw Carter he was totally smitten with him, and he loved how Carter dressed - but he just needed to make sure that Carter knew he loved this side of him.

Now Bryce is the only brother that likes to be a dom, but also need to be a sub sometimes too. He has not found anyone, but while at the club, he was another dom Troy with his sub Oliver and was strangely drawn to them both. Bryce assumes that as Troy and Oliver are already a couple, that all he can have is to watch their scenes, and nothing else. However, Bryce is totally wrong about this, as they have been looking for a third and they know Bryce will fit the bill. It does take some persuading with Bryce for him to finally accept what they say is true, as Bryce is convinced he will be the reason for the couple to split - nothing could be further from the truth.

I listened to this series over a few days, and even if I hadn't been listening for a couple of days, it was easy to get straight back into the story. I have only listened to one Kenneth Obi narration before, but I will most definitely been looking out for more by him - he did a brilliant job of all the voices on the audio. It was so easy to know who was talking, and he has the sort of voice that just draws you into the story.

This is one audio that I can listen to again, I enjoyed that much.

Like a luxurious box of chocolates.

This box set was like a decadent box of chocolates, with all of my favourite flavours.
Each story was another flavour of kink, each one more delicious than the last.
4 brothers, all into the alternative life style, each craving something different,
wanting to dominate, or submit , or both.
Garret looking for a sub to please, is unaware that the bouncy, nervous, hesitant twink
that comes to his office too often is looking for a master. Wyatt, trying to catch the attention
of the hot man, is going crazy, he needs a firm hand, he wants a Dom who he can submitt to fully.
What follows is a lot of hilarious drama from Wyatt, and when Garrett goes all Dom, some spine tingling scenes.

Brent has been attracted to his work collegue for a long time.
Hanging out in the club has made his yearning to submitt to Kayland stronger.
But as the two men work together, they are too worried about being wrong ,
both are scared of losing the others friendship. As always the brothers meddling
works and Brent gets together with Kayland. However, there are secrets that threaten
their relationship. Will Brent still want Kayland once he finds out about his preferences.

Grant is a big strong man, he looks like a bouncer, which he finds is not something
subs usually go for. None of the subs in the club stir any feelings in him. Grant knows what he likes.
Carter loves cosmetics and dressing up in feminine clothes and lingerie. He is not happy,
all the men he's been on a date with, have hated his outfits. They are looking for Vanilla,
and Carter can never be Vanilla. He may be confident and outspoken, but he's desperate for
a Dom, one that would love him with all his quirks.
When Grant meets Carter there are fireworks, Grant can't believe that the beautiful twink
with all that sexyness can be his.

Bryce is overwhelmed, he is a Dom that wants to tease and punish a gorgeous sub.
He also wants to feed his need to submit to a powerful man , when the feelings arise.
He has been watching Troy and Oliver in the club, they have been playing together and
their scenes are so hot that Bryce has been unable to think of anything else.
The fact that Troy and Oliver are an established couple makes Bryce ignore their looks.
The couple want a third and they have their eye on Bryce, but it will take a lot of
sly games and manipulation to bring Bryce to his knees.

Apart from the brothers and their partners, the best parts in this story will have to go to
Mrs Jenkins and her meddling ladies. They have the best one liners, they are truly funny.

I also want to say that the epilogue in each story will have you melting,
l may have driven over the speed limit while driving and listening to the hot stories.
A very well written box set, with some brilliant characters, l loved it all.

The narrator Kenneth Obi has done a brilliant job, with so many different
personalities to voice. He does a particularly fabulous voice for the exhuberant Wyatt.
Thoroughly enjoyable.
