Publisher's Summary

When Rebecca's boyfriend talks her into vacationing at a mountain lodge with his swing club, she quickly learns she's not cut out for playing musical beds. Now she has nowhere to sleep. Logan, the lodge owner, finds her freezing on the porch. After hauling her inside, he warms her in his own bed, and there the experienced Dom discovers that Rebecca might not be a swinger... but she is definitely a submissive.

Rebecca knows that no one can love her plump, scarred body. To her shock, lodge owner Logan not only disagrees, but ties her up and shows her just how much he enjoys her curves. Under his skilled hands, Rebecca not only loses her inhibitions, but also her heart.

Damaged from the war, Logan considers himself too dangerous to be around the enticing little sub. He sends her away for her own safety, not realizing she believes she has once again been rejected because of her size. As Logan's mountains echo with her voice long after she's gone, he realizes she's taken his heart with her. But when he arrives in the city to reclaim her, Rebecca's phone has been disconnected and her apartment is empty....

Publisher's Note: This audiobook contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some listeners may find objectionable: anal play/intercourse, BDSM themes and content, and exhibitionism.

Master of the Mountain

Would you consider the audio edition of Master of the Mountain to be better than the print version?

Yes, in as much as you can experience the book on a whole different level. The print/kindle version is good too. You just can't go wrong with a Cherise Sinclair book. (Just not possible)

What other book might you compare Master of the Mountain to and why?

All of the Shadowlands book. The men are all 100% Alpha male and know how to respect their women.

Have you listened to any of Phil Gigante’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. This is my first book with this narrator.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. Any book by Cherise is worth listening to in a single sitting. Sadly, life has a habit of getting in the way sometime.

Any additional comments?

I am excited to see that yet another Cherise Sinclair book has made its way to Audible. I hope that each and every book of her becomes available on Audible. Great way to spend an afternoon.

Solid 3.5 all around

I really enjoyed this story/narration combo. Third person isn't my favorite and I haven't a problem connection with the characters but Cherish Sinclair did the best that could be done. The mountainous scenes were painted vividly and the sex between the 2 main characters was so freakin hot. I wish the connection between the characters was more intense and that we got to see a little more of their life at the end.

Fave author + Incredible narrator = FABULOUS

Cherise Sinclair is one of my absolute favorite authors. I've read and re-read all of her books so many times I have them all memorized. Her characters feel like family and close friends. I celebrate their victories and want to give them the "big sister treatment" when they screw up. Her books can stand alone, but are even better together.
This was the first book I'd listened to with Phil Gigante narrating and he was just wonderful! Here's hoping he reads the rest of the Mountain Masters/Dark Haven series. He'd do well for the remaining Masters of the Shadowlands books as well. Noah Michael Levine is okay, but Phil Gigante is more suited to Cherise Sinclair's characters and plots.

Very good story

I enjoy Cherise Sinclair's stories and am so glad they are being offered as audiobooks. Phil Gigante does an excellent job of bringing out the details and I can visualize the entire scenario thus drawing me completely into the story line. I totally recommend these stories to everyone who enjoys this genre. I look forward to the next stories that will be released.

meh

thre best word to describe this book is contrived. everything is forced. from the plot to the action, the book is pushing me through instead of pulling me through. the narrator is blah too.

It was ok..

I’ve read other stories by Cherise and decided to check out the Mountain Men/ Dark Haven series. As a start, I’m not a fan just yet. The narration was just Ok. I see that other narrators complete the other books, so maybe the collaboration gets better.

Rebecca was skiddish and a complete novice. Why she decided to try swinging with her boyfriend when he never told her he was interested was wrong in and of itself, but when she embarks on BDSM practices with Logan, she takes to it immediately. After being trained by Cherise in many of her other books, Logan didn’t follow the normal training of a newbie. I was surprised how involved they got without a lot of the real dialogue that takes place before anything actually occurs.

I think my biggest issue was the narration. The story just didn’t read well for me. The voices were off and Rebecca was a little annoying. I liked Master Simon’s brief appearance, so I will listen to his book and then decide if I want to continue the series.

The story was ok, but I’ll see if I want to hear more.

As great as audiobook as in reading

I’ve read the book before and now tried the audiobook. Loved every minute!
At the moment I’m not in a good place mentally and have migraines. Reading isn’t always possible but listening to books usually isn’t a problem.

If you’re looking for a story with a inexperienced sub and a Dom who knows the ropes, you can’t go wrong with Cherise Sinclair.

Phil Gigante has the perfect Logan voice, low, seductive and a bit rough. I loved his performance!

Easy reading, not too challenging, great sex scenes. Characters are fun if a little predictable.

Interesting choice of narrator

Not too keen on the male narrator. Sounded odd when he was reading female parts.
