Publisher's Summary

Andrea wants to submit but not to just any so-called Dom. He has to be tougher than the slum-bred bullies she grew up with. She's given up on finding a true Dom when her friend finagles her a place as a trainee in an exclusive BDSM club with the powerful Shadowlands Masters. Andrea's thrilled - and terrified.

Forced to accept an unknown submissive into his carefully run trainee program, Master Cullen is furious. Not only is the young woman new to BDSM, but she's unsuited to her role. Armored in leather like a Domme, she's more liable to punch a Dom than kneel. He decides to push her right back out the door. But as he ruthlessly intimidates her, punishes her, then cuddles her, he glimpses the woman inside the emotional barriers. Her utter surrender captures his heart.

Although Master Cullen is famous for his unfettered lifestyle, Andrea hopes he might be interested in her until she discovers he's not just a bartender - he's a cop. Maybe he'd overlook her past brush with the law, but when another trainee accuses her of stealing money, Andrea knows she's lost the Master she wanted with all her heart.

Excellent

Love this performance by Noah Michael Levine. Cherise Sinclair never disappoints with her heartwarming stories. She captures you right from the beginning and keeps you on the edge of your seat right up to the end. l personally like to read the book first. The audio version gives a whole other dimension to the story. If you are new to the Masters of the Shadowlands do yourself a favor and start with Master Z's story. Promise you will not be disappointed.

Pulls at your heart

This was a great story of what it really takes to give ourselves to someone else completely. Sinclair wrote it perfectly and Levine delivered an a great performance that tugs at your heart.

A disappointment

I enjoyed several other books by this author but could not finish this one. On and on Andrea was embarrassed, toyed with, humiliated as the masters took great delight in amusing themselves at her expense. They are masters of nothing - complete jerks!!!

This was a good story

I enjoyed this story about Master Cullen and Andrea. At times, it seemed a little slow thus a little long, but it kept a good pace.

Andrea was a complex and proud woman. At times, I found it hard to believe she was submissive, but she held her tough exterior and independence so tight, Master Cullen had to dig really deep to find that vulnerable spark.

I love how Master Z knows just what everyone needs, Masters and subs alike. It's also nice to get caught up on all the pairings we've had so far. I swear Jessica never learns her lesson 😊.

I'm enjoying the series and am ready for the next one, Master Marcus.

Cherise always delivers

You can never go wrong with a book by Cherise. Always something new with some of the hottest bondage scenes. I LOVE her audible books because she always picks just the right narrator. Noah Michael Lavine is amazing and makes you feel like a voyeur in the book. Thanks for so many wonderful hours of listening. It makes life a better place.

You Gotta love Master Cullen!

Where does Lean on Me rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

While I wouldn't say its my absolute favourite, it ranks up there on the list

What was one of the most memorable moments of Lean on Me?

When Andrea and Cullen reconcile after Cullen hears the whole story behind the lie.

Have you listened to any of Noah Michael Levine’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Noah does an excellent job. He is definitely the voice of the Shadowlands

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The scenes were both male and female characters realized the extent of their feelings was very moving
