Publisher's Summary

Tony Angelico thinks he knows all about Dominants and submissives. After all, his two brothers are unapologetic Dominants with long-term submissive partners. Tony also knows that Tessa, the woman who works for him - the one girl he can't get out of his mind - is interested in the lifestyle. But he wants no part of bossing women around, let alone dominating them.

Tessa Damon craves the attention and discipline of a strong, dominant alpha male, but she's not been able to find what she's looking for. She's attracted to Tony, and can't help fantasizing about being taken over his knee for a sound spanking. She longs for the release and comfort of submitting to a man she can trust.

The night Tony decides to give it a shot, everything changes. But can Tessa be healed from her abusive past, and realize that she's worthy of love? Can they find a path that works for both of them? Will Tony finally understand that there is no one definition to cover every nuance of what being a Dominant means - not when his heart and soul know that he wants nothing more than to assume the role of Tessa's protector?

Disclaimer: This book contains explicit themes, including the spanking of adult women and other BDSM scenarios. The book also includes a self-harm scene involving cutting. If such material is likely to offend or trigger you in some way, please do not listen.

Great story, deserved better performance

Any additional comments?

This is the first book by the duo of Jane Henry and Maisy Archer that I have read. While part of a series, the book is a stand-alone read. Tessa and Tony’s friendship evolves into romance as their lives entwine and their relationship takes an unusual path into D/s. This path is tantalizing (if not a bit too slow) but yields steamy spanking experiences. The book includes several discussions of the D/s lifestyle and how this is not S/M or abuse.

As to the narration… At first I was excited to experience the duo male/female narrators. I hoped that this would add a dimension to the audio reading adventure. However, it fell flat. Ali Peterson should have done it by herself. Jeffrey’s contribution can only be described as painful.

The story is great and, overall, it is an enjoyable audio experience.

Heartfelt!

This one has a lot of emotions and love in it! It sure kept my interest to the end. Jeffrey D. Peterson and Ali Peterson were excellent narrators! They bring sparks to the story and I loved it!

Worst Narrators

They were so boring and it ruined an otherwise good book. The narration felt forced and made all of the emotions feel hollow.

Great series!

i was not enthused by the narration of this book in the series. He is better than Mr. Plug, but I didn't get a sense of each character. I do love the series.

A delicious story

Any additional comments?

I'm afraid I'm going to sound like a broken record. But seriously, Jane Henry and Maisy Archer writes the most sultry stories ever. They have a very subtle understanding of telling what's on their mind and it seeps into me like the most delicate fragrance.

Tony is one of my favorite Boston Dom heroes so far. That man was just the most delicious hunk of an alpha-male, and it was all came naturally to him. He sure made all my lady parts tingle, and he could have spanked my butt anytime he wanted to, and I would have asked for more. He is calm, strong, steady, sensitive and bighearted. He is very much aware of the people around him, and he catches all of Tessa emotions. He is not natural sure of himself, but he learns to trust his feelings and trust his ability to give Tessa just what she needs.

Tessa is just lovely, and her story grabbed my heart. She had a terrible upbringing and started to cut herself as a teenager, to have something in her life she could control. She is addicted to being spanked because it grounds her and gives her the calm she so desperately needs.

These two characters are the perfect match, and I absolutely loved how Jane and Maisy told their love story.

I heard this story on audible. The dual narration was excellent, and I really enjoyed it.

Thanks to both the authors for this enlightening advanced copy

Worst narrators ever!

I am not one to review usually, but the narrators were so bad I could not listen to the book. That has never happened before . The narration sounded like the narrators were reading a nursery rhyme to small children. Just awful.

Narration ruins it again

I don't know if the authors have done something to piss the folks at Blushing Books off. clearly there's some bad blood.
The stories in this series are good, better than many in the genre. Formulaic, HEA books with hot scenes, but also providing reasonable character depth and a good mix of drama, humor and pathos.
But, while these books make a decent read, the narration in the audiobook is an absolute horror-show and makes enjoyment of them almost impossible. Painful. The only way I was able to get through them was to think of the reader a prompt for an actual narration going on in my head. And I did that much mainly out of a sense of support for the writers.
The reading is stiff, with bad, awkwardly timed inflection and elocution that makes it seem as if this is the first time the reader ('cause this *ain't* narration) of the audiobook has encountered the script. The narration in each of the books of the series is consistently bad.
This quality of the reading in this audiobook is a frank betrayal of the writers. It seems designed to garner bad reviews. Worse, however is that it is a giant "f**k you" tp the listener. Bad production values on the level of those in this audiobook show absolute disdain for the listener. Which is curious in a business where the listener or read holds the power over success.
So, the only thing I am left with is that the writers pissed Blushing Books off somehow, because these tracks feel like vengence.
