Publisher's Summary

After the last fiasco, Sally gives up. She'll never find a dom of her own. Instead, the computer whiz is job hunting in between bending the law - just a bit - to unearth the bastards who'd enslaved her friends. The clueless cops and feds obviously need her help.

FBI special agents Galen and Vance have waited to play with Sally for a long time. When the mischievous submissive returns to the exclusive Shadowlands BDSM club after an ugly relationship, the experienced co-tops are more than pleased. Realizing she's suppressing deep-seated emotions, the powerful doms push her - only to find that her sassiness conceals a scarred and vulnerable heart.

Shaken by the unexpected emotional exposure, Sally flees the demanding Masters and the Shadowlands. And that should be the end of that, since both Galen and Vance have reasons not to seek a long-term relationship, especially with a submissive who doesn't want what they can give. But when a brutal attack by her ex-dom sends Sally into their home, the two agents are driven to protect her. To help her. To take her under command. Falling in love isn't in the plans.

But the little imp brings light into their lives, and just as they begin to want more, they discover she's hacked into an organization that delights in burning people alive. Now more than hearts are on the line, and Sally's submission could save her life.

Ok, definitely not the best in the series

This was far from my favorite, of the series. The story just wasn't that exciting. Maybe it was because it had such a similar theme as some of the others and it was totally predictable.

I love the plan for the dual narration but it does not come across smooth, at all. It has a happy ending and the characters suffer their own emotional roller-coasters but ,seriously, it didn't come across genuine and didn't touch me as other books have.

m/f/m, BDSM relationship, criminal subplot

LOVED this Cherise Sinclair love story that has all 3 main characters intertwining with criminal subplot, chase, complete with completely unhinged bad guys. Intense criminal scenes, ah-mazing sex scenes, and snappy dialogue is completely entertaining... I got totally absorbed into the story. Having the Shadowlands kittens weaved into this book was a welcomed bonus & added to the enjoyment & laughs. Narration was very good!

Great book, loved the narrators!

This is another great read from Cherise Sinclair with great narration, suspense and two doms dealing with a submissive who is sassy to hide her pain. There are some bumps along the road as Galen, Vance and Sally find their HEA. I thought the narrators expressed the characters’ emotions perfectly and brought a great book to life.

Thrilling yet hot and erotic!!!

I absolutely love this series.... each book has almost every element ranging from thrilling suspense to uber hot scenes filled with love and erotic play. Noah and Erin did a phenomenal job narrating and bring all the scenes to life. I only hope that there are more installments to come... Pretty please Mistress Cherise 💞

Again a winner

She did it again She has all my respect, I've never thought she could write better then the last one I read but boy was I wrong. This book takes so many different and unsuspecting ways that it never gets boring. The characters are as always described in a way that makes me see, smell and feel them. This is what a book is suppose to give me when I read. The storyline is great and her writing style makes it easy to read as always. If you haven't read any The Masters of Shadowlands books now is the time to do so. Narrators Clear pronunciation and read with feelings Excellent job at reading in a way that makes the characters come alive 5 stars overall

MfM

If only is a beautiful romance story that combines BDSM and ménage hotness with a firm dose of suspense and main characters who have suffered lost and hurt but aren’t broken. Who can resist? I certainly can’t! Noah Michael Levine and Erin DeWard are experienced narrators and they enhance the story by bringing it in Duet.

Fun tho unbelievable

Recognizing that much of this series strains the bounds of believability, this one pushed me from the beginning. Still a fun listen. Spoiler Alert: stop here if you don’t want to know more of the story. The heroine manages to hack into an online slavery site and save women. It’s just terrifically unbelievable that she could do what the FBI couldn’t. I like that she is portrayed as a woman with big brains tho this went a little too far. Like I said, still a fun and sexy listen.

Totally loved it!!!

I am so in love with and addicted to the shadowlands that its rediculous!!! The storylines are always so strong and involved that they keep you gripped all the way through. The characters are so full of life and depth that you feel like you know them. I wish I had a family like that of the members at the shadowland!!! I didnt think that the storys could get better but they just seem to keep doing so. I loved this story so much and was so happy to hear Sallys story as I really had liked her from earlier books. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Absolutely brilliant!!!

From Sally's misery and heartbreak to complete happiness this story has to be my favourite of all the Shadowlands books. Sally certainly finds her happiness in this suspenseful, intense and beautiful book. A definite must read for any fans of BDSM and the Shadowlands series.
Noah and Erin are superb the emotion they evoke in the narration had me laughing and tearing up. I can not imagine any other narrator's doing a better job of giving extra to an already brilliant book. I would give more than five stars if I was able.
