Publisher's Summary

He's a big, angry former Marine, and I'm going to be sore when he's done with me.

Hawk Travers is not a man to be trifled with. I learned that lesson in the hardest way possible, first with a painful, humiliating public spanking and then much more shamefully in private.

She came looking for trouble. She got a taste of my belt instead.

Bryce Myers pushed me too far and she ended up with her bottom welted. But as satisfying as it is to hear this feisty little reporter scream my name as I put her in her place, I get the feeling she isn't going to stop snooping around no matter how well-used and sore I leave her cute backside.

She's gotten herself in way over her head, but she's mine now, and I protect what's mine.

Publisher's Note: Hawk includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don't buy this book.

A deliciously wicked romantic suspense!

What happens when one fiesty reporter and a hunky former marine clash? Sparks explode in the best way possible. No one crosses Hawk Travers and gets away, especially the nosy journalist who just won't stop snooping where she doesn't belong. Hawk is going to have to teach her a lesson and put her in her place. She is his property now and he will do with her as he pleases fit. This follows an intriguing mystery which made the storyline all the more compelling. The chemistry between Hawk and Bryce was scorching and I loved the dynamics between them. Thomas Locklear performed a flawless audio delivery and made this into an engaging masterpiece. If you like a deliciously wicked romantic suspense with one bratty reporter and a hunky marine who will make her learn her place, you will love this.

🌻A bit ridiculous, at times but, not a total loss🌻

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻V from Kansas 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻 Well, after listening to the opening scene, I wasn’t sure I’d be able to finish this book. In the opening scene, the Hero, who had never met the Heroine before, bared her bottom and spanked her raw. This event took place in a Ranch supply store, full of people. The Heroine didn’t press assault and battery charges and no one stepped in or called the cops. Really? The story got a little better, after that. There was some action, mystery and intrigue. There was also an abduction, after threats of retribution. The narrator had a sexy voice but did struggle performing female voices. Dual or duet narration would have been so much more entertaining. In conclusion, this book was barely passable; wait for a sale, to purchase this one.

Rough but Sweet

Hawk is a rough guy. Says himself he’s not a good man. But when he returns home to take care of family business upon the death of his brother, he finds that there’s way more going on than he thought he knew. Bryce is a journalist looking to crack open a story that feels like more. She gets on the wrong side of Hawk while looking into his brothers death. But they find comfort in each other and maybe a way forward. Unless the forces working against them have anything to say about it. Narrated by Thomas Locklear in his usual style with an amazing vocal range and distinct characters. I’m always amazed by his ability to perform a full cast range with wonderful female voices. It’s easy to get swept up in his story telling.

Too far across the line

I really struggled with this one. With the title Hawk: A rough romance, I went into it expecting some good kink. But I didn’t get what I was expecting. For me this one crossed the line. There is nothing sexy about abuse. Seconds after meeting in the store, Hawk ripped Bryce’s skirt off her to publicly spank the hell out of her, during which he got totally turned on. Not only did no one help as Bryce was stripped of her clothing, and assaulted but several clapped. Who knew that being a journalist means you are fair game to be manhandled. Hawk went on to beat her like 5 times in 2 days. He is described as 6’5 pure brawny muscle and having +150 lbs on her. But apparently he still needed to beat her with his belt, until his arm was too tired to continue but his cock was hard. After that lovely image, as she struggled to get away from him, he roughly grabbed her bruised bottom and said, “I want you. I will have you. And there’s nothing you can do about it.” Other statements that made my skin crawl.. You’re responsible for this. Take your medicine like a good little girl. He issued several brutal hits. I’ve never wanted a woman this way. You aren’t leaving. Period. As I was given the book for an honest review I continued on, when I normally would have called it quits. After the first few days of beat downs, the story got good. The mystery of what was going on was gripping and engaging. I even found Hawk to be likable. I would have loved this book if not for the first few chapters of blatant physical and sexual abuse. The narration was fabulous. Thomas Locklear did an amazing job reading both povs.

Special Ops Alpha Male, good mystery, and more

Who could ask for more than an intriguing mystery that brings a tough demanding special ops pro together with a tenacious female journalist, and even though she gets spanked by him in public, their common goals bring them together. And on top of that there is a very young niece who has lost both parents. Lots of threads to pull on the emotions, some very steamy sex, and a good story line. My first experience of Thomas Locklear as narrator -- I love his voice, though I might not have matched him with this character. But I got over that quickly and hope to find more of his narrations. My first Piper Stone novel -- I like her work and will look for more of her audio books too. Go for it!!

Hot hot hot!!

What can I say? I’m absolutely hooked on Piper’s books and with Thomas Locklear narrating, it’s a one click for me. First I need to say how amazing his narration is and his ability to make me feel like I was part of the story is due to his range in voices for each character. To be able to go from gritty, sexy alpha to breathy, sexy female is not easy to do, especially with a deep voice. On top of the range, he can go from one accent to another seamlessly. This story has it all and there’s no slow burn, which I love. It gets right to it with in the first chapter. Hawk is an alpha-hole with a heart ( but you don’t know that until later chapters) and Bryce is a typical take no shit heroine who finds she likes being dominated and spanked. Even though this is an erotic romance, Piper weaves in intrigue and suspense and brings it home with a HEA, no cliffhanger which I love. Do yourself a favor and pick up this book!! Im already looking forward to my next Piper book.

Amazingly🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Piper Stone creates a hot sexy book with enticing storylines. Then she chooses the narrator, Thomas Locklear, to make even sexier. This story contains intrigue, PTSD effects, murders, conspiracies, cover ups, regrets, accepting a new way of life, friendships, and erotic sex that turns into love. It's amazing how much Piper can fit into one story. This story is a rollercoaster ride of adventure that is filled with many twists and turns. Hawk is troubled but is still a dominant and compassionate man. Bryce is a feisty reporter that doesn't always think about her own safety. Sparks fly when they first meet and the result ends up in a spanking. It was a treat watching these two develop from enemies to lovers, as they both end up helping each other. Did I mention that Thomas Locklear has a deep sexy as sin voice? Don't bother with panties because they'll just melt. He has distinctive male and female voices for the characters, and creates a narrative that flows smoothly. He makes you experience the emotions of these characters and become part of the story.

sexy, erotic, intense

I think this is one of the best stories I've listened to by Piper Stone. This story kept my interest from the very first page to the last. Hawk, A marine sent home because of his estranged brother's death. Bryce, a female investigative reporter snooping around trying to find out who has been starting the fires. Mystery, threats, secrets, lies. danger, intrigue. Oh and the steamy, hot sex between Hawk and Bryce was so erotic. Thomas Locklear narration is perfection. His deep, gravely voice oozes sex. He literally brings this story to life with such emotion. I was gifted this audio and offered my honest review. Thank you for a great story and a wonderful listen.

This is a naughty, naughty book!

When you get a copy of this story, please ensure you are alone when you listen. This is not for the faint hearted or those sitting on a packed train. You will blush! You will need a cold shower! Be warned! Hawk is powerful and dominating but this woman gets right under his skin, and he gets right under her clothes. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, you will too.

Steamy suspense

Hawk is a former Marine who's gotten into a bit of trouble at work. His brother-he hasn't been in touch for a while-dies while fighting a fire. He returns to settle some affairs & is repeatedly accosted by a reporter. Bryce is looking for her big break, but also prioritises truth & justice. There is a connection between these two, and it slowly changes from punishment spankings to a lot more. There's a mystery to be solved, and some danger ahead for this couple. I enjoyed Thomas’ narration of Hawk-nailed it! In the beginning of the story, Bryce seemed to be whisper-shouting a lot & for some reason I found this hilarious. As the story progressed & Bryce was a little less outraged, I adjusted to the narration. Overall, good story with a few twists, enjoyed the narration.

Like hearing a play.

Another amazing audiobook narration by Thomas Locklear. It’s honestly like hearing a play and you can almost picture it in your mind while hearing it play out. Thomas is astounding in how he can fluctuate between characters making each sound distinct. I’m in awe of his performances. This is only my second audiobook that I have heard but I’m a huge fan already! Hawk starts out as a really guff, battle scarred and I just don’t give a hell kinda guy returning from the field where it appears the Marines are done with him. He’s called home to having lost his brother to a tragedy only to find out there’s more going on then he ever thought possible. And it all starts when he’s confronted by a reporter who tries to find out what mysteries are involved with all the fire deaths happening in this small Montana town. Really enthralling story written by Piper Stone and really sexy hot too! Definitely worthy of a credit! I was fortunate enough to have won a code for this audiobook and this is just my opinion.

Hawt or Hawk? This book was fire.

I received this book via a promo code and this is my voluntary review. This is my first audiobook narrated by Thomas Locklear and it will not be the last, the voice acting here was fantastic. Thrust back into civilian life and impending fatherhood after he gains guardianship of a darling niece he didn't even know he had, Hawk is mourning the loss of his estranged brother, and contemplating the future of the family ranch. The big, scary former marine is none too pleased when a journalist starts snooping around into the events of a fire which led to his brothers death, the tenacious and infuriating Bryce Myers has caught more than just a story in this investigation, she's been on the receiving end of a harsh spanking from both Hawk's hand, and then his belt. She's gotten herself into more trouble than the attention of the rough rancher, as the threats start coming its clear shes gotten herself in way over her head, but Hawk has decided that her cute little backside is his now, and he protect what's his. Very enjoyable, I liked this story.
