Publisher's Summary

Brent had fallen for the one Dom he couldn't have.

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? 

Calen had fallen for the one sub he couldn't have.

Calen knew most considered him the seen-them-and-leave-them type of Dom, but how could he stay when he knew they wouldn't understand? When you're a Dom who doesn't match up to stereotypes, can you ever find the right submissive?

This 38,000-word story contains M/m sexual content and BDSM elements. The Bound & Controlled series follows four brothers who are each involved in the BDSM lifestyle in some way as they look for love. Each book features a different brother, but the books are best heard in order. The books are not taboo in nature.

Love this one so much!!

Now this is the one I was waiting for in the audio book and Kenneth Obi doesn't disappointed. When I read Brent and Calen story I just fall in love with these two. So finally listening to the narration just made me fall in love even more. Kenneth just put so much emotion in each of the characters that I felt like I was falling in love again. Just a fabulous job.

Brent

I love the fact that these stories deal with the emotional aspect of the lifestyle, and not just the physical part. While I enjoy a racy book, I have to have an emotional connection to the characters. I think Shaw really did a great job making me fall in love with Brent and Calen. I like Calen’s vulnerability, and I was so thrilled that there were no secrets kept in this book, that Calen was up front about who he is and what he wants. His fun, teasing personality is just what Brent responds to.
Narration: Kenneth’s portrayal of Brent and Calen is just…wow. The deep timber of Brent’s voice, the sexy slide of Calen’s just draw me into a story I already loved. And I just melt when Calen calls Brent subbie. There is nothing that brought me out of the story performance-wise and I really enjoyed the book, and Kenneth’s superb voice acting.

great narration

So I wasn't imagining the voices used for both Brent and Calen, but they work great and make a lot of sense. the narration is spot on and the story is still wonderful. I love this author's books and I am so happy that the narration works with them perfectly.

Brent

Can Brent and Calen be more than friends? After a simple gesture at the club one night the two find themselves longing for things that they think are unattainable. Yet neither man knows that the other feels the same until they each are forced to a good look at their problems. Soon the pieces begin to fall into place, but can they take a chance on love and who will be the one to make the first move before it becomes even more complicated.

I really enjoyed Calen and Brent’s story. Theirs is a wonderful friends to lovers story. I loved how easy going their friendship was and how hot the two are together. Each of their personalities shine throughout the story. Both men have their own tendencies that have been problems with past lovers but the feelings that these two have for each other outweigh all the doubts. I enjoyed the way Brent and Calen go about finding and fighting for their happy ever after. Not only do the main characters get their story told but the supporting characters have a lot to say. Each brother has a distinct personality and I cannot wait to see more from this family.

Narrator Kenneth Obi brings this book to life nicely and had me lost in Calen and Brent’s story right from the start. This is a hot and sexy listen that moves at a good pace and kept me engaged all the way to the end.

sweet D/S story

A great story but wished it was a little longer. Loved the friends to lovers story line and thought the MC messed well together and that it was a little different take to the D/S relationship. I enjoyed every minute of this syory!

had me wishing i had more than two thumbs...

i enjoy BDSM a lot but this series is more about the falling in love part of the story than the D/s physical part dont get me wrong it is there to just doesnt revolve solely around it and i like that about it. cant wait for the 3rd one...

Brent, Bound & Controlled 2

While this was not my favorite book by Shaw, I really did still like this one. I almost kind of feel like I was listening to a True Account story of a Dom (Calen) and a Sub (Brent) finding their ground together in a new relationship and I didn't feel like I was listening to just a Fictional story.
This book had a really long slow burn of a buildup and you get to actually "know the couple" as they learn each others quirks, kinks, likes and dislikes, all before they got into any actual scenes, which I think was a really good thing for this couple in particular. They needed that extra time to secure their relationship together, since they are not the "norm" when it comes to D/S partnership and they both had some reservations and insecurities. This story was definitely on the lighter side of BDSM, if you are looking for some extreme scenes your not going to get it with this book, its on the sweeter side of the spectrum.
Audio - I have to say.... The Audio did kind of throw me off at first. Only because Calen and Brent don't have the normal roles that you would typically see in D/S relationships. And Kenneth really made that clear in the narration for the two men. Brent the Sub had a deeper Gruffer more gravelly voice and Calen the Dom had a more soft spoken, lighter voice. But Kenneth put a good amount of emotion in where it was needed for the roles of every character in the story and he's becoming one of my more favorite narrators. Great job with this one and I look forward to the next book in the series.

Great story

I enjoyed the audio of this book. Kenneth Obi does a great job of bringing these characters to life. I've become a huge fan of him narrating this authors books
I liked how both men were quirky in their kink but perfect for each other if they would just take the chance to find out. Brent is Garrett's brother, who we met in the first book. Calen is Garrett's best friend & office manager. Both are questioning themselves after a brief interaction at the club. Will the other be able to handle their quirks? I looked forward to watching them figure it out.

Loved this book!

I loved this book right from the beginning and had a few laugh out loud moments that got me some funny looks from my family. I found both Brent and Calen to be adorable together with some very hot moments thrown in.

Kenneth Obi did an incredible job with the narration. I would highly recommend this book.

A great follow up to Garrett

I loved the first book in this series and as it introduced us to the family, I was looking forward to getting to know more about them. This book didn’t disappoint.

Brent and Caleb were both really likeable characters, again Kenneth Obi really bought them to life for me. I enjoyed the developing relationship and I was really rooting for them. Both were special guys looking for things they thought they wouldn’t find.

I love Shaw’s writing and now I’m waiting for the next one!

Another great book in the Bound & Controlled serie

I was looking forward to listening to this book as a follow up to Garrett: Bound & Controlled Book 1, and I wasn't disappointed.
A story line that gets you involved with the characters; Brent and Calen, and also the rest of the family are as entertaining as ever. You can feel the connection that grows between the MC's as the story progresses.
Kenneth Obi does another really good job with narrating this book. I'm not 100% on his character voices but I enjoy the emotion that he puts into the voices, the enjoyment that he brings to all of the characters and how they interact with each other.
I am looking forward to both Grant and Bryce's books!

Really enjoyed listening to this

I didn't think the book could be improved but was I wrong. Loved hearing Brent and Calen story. Calen is unusual Dom, will he ever find the right Sub for him.
Brent really didn't think he would ever find a Dom that suited him.
We meet up with the brothers again,
Kenneth Obi once again was outstanding. Loved his take on all the characters also the story as well,
I always find Shaw Mongeomery very entertaining, enjoyable books.
Highly recommended.

Brent

What did you like most about Brent: A M/m BDSM Romance?

I was very excited to read Brent's story after reading Garrett, which I loved. It didn't disappoint me at all.

What did you like best about this story?

Brent and Calen have known each other for years and never considered each other as a possible option. The night they pretended to be together so people would stop interrupting their conversation sent everything spiraling.

Any additional comments?

The tension build up between them was frustrating to read but a forced vacation helped calm it all down. I love BDSM stories and don't care what version is depicted. I'm no expert but these guys were hot!
