Shelby Whitman has had a huge crush on the one man who deserves more than she can give him, so it’s best to keep him at arm’s length. 

Dominant Parker Christiansen has been craving the perky, petite submissive ever since he laid his eyes on her, but she’s turned down his every attempt to negotiate with her.

When Parker finds out Shelby’s hiding a devastating secret from her friends, he steps in to help, and this time he won’t take no for an answer. Can he convince her he’s fallen in love with her, and, if they only have this time together, they should make the best of it?

The road to happiness always has a few potholes

Parker Christiansen was the Building Contractor responsible for the renovations of the various warehouses within the Trident Security complexes.
He was also a Dom at the club, and although not more had been mentioned about him in various episodes, he was part of the inner workings of group.
Selby, again was someone we have learnt to love, from the first episode, as it was her entreaty to Mitch that had caused the novel writer to tour the club, on the fateful day, she found out the true nature of the man she had asked to dinner.
Now, we get a glimpse at Selby and Parker, and see them on a journey to which we all wish to gain true fulfilment. To find a true soul mate.

enjoyed it!

Would I listen to it again: yes
Did the story keep me engaged: yes
Was I invested in the characters: yes
What did I like about the story? interesting characters and a difficult subject well handled. Shows the caring and responsible side of BDSM that isn't always assumed.

Cancer survivor and Sub, Shelby, doesn't feel worthy of love or family. Master Parker wants Shelby, but she turns him down believing he deserves better. When Shelby's cancer returns the Dom in Parker takes over and it's Not Negotiable!

Narrator comment: I enjoyed Donovan Kane's narration and think he's done a good job narrating this novella. He has a nice voice, good inflections and I had no problem distinguishing characters or feeling the emotions of the story.

Triumph from tragedy

Love, Love, loved Shelby and Parker's story. True love comes in many shapes and sizes and always wins after tragedy strikes. This story had the perfect amount of heartwarming dialogue along with a storyline that you will want to listen to again and again. Donovan Kane has a voice like melted chocolate. I love this series!!

Great addition to the series.

I had been looking forward to Shelby and Parker’s book as it was foreshadowed in the previous books. When Parker realizes Shelby’s secret he steps up in true dominant fashion to take care of her. I loved both Shelby’s independent attitude and Parker’s protectiveness. My only compliant is I wish the book was longer since I loved both characters.

this one stole my heart

Having known so many people with cancer, Parker and Shelby's story really tugged at my heart. Parker is amazing with Shelby, once she lets him in. But getting to that point was a struggle for them both. We all need a Parker in our lives to lift us up and never let us down. I loved hearing their story and hope to hear more in the next installments.

Donovan Kane is easily becoming one of my favorite narrators. He really brought this story to life. Kane easily narrated the strong alpha in Parker and his much softer side too. Both of these characters are so complex, yet Kane was able to narrate them exactly as I imagined them. I cannot wait for more!

Short but Sweet

Loved Shelby since book 1! I'm not a huge fan of novellas and therefore wish it was longer. The first 2 chapters were just repeated from His Angel - I get standalone but still hate when authors do that, especially when it's already short. That said it was a very sweet love story.

I didn't care for the narrator's female voice on this one.

Very emotional

This was a lot different from the rest of the series. Not full of action and gun fights but it shows what a great writer Samantha really is. It’s very emotional and has all the feels. Brilliant storyline, strong characters and amazing narration.

Parker and Shelby

This is the 4th book I have listened to in this series and, while I love the entire series, this one is probably my favorite one so far. In some ways this has a very different feel to it than the rest of the series but in other ways, it's very much the same. I really love both Parker and Shelby. They are great characters who have both been dealt their own set of challenges and deserve their happily ever after. Donovan Kane did a wonderful job bringing this story to life. I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Not Negotiable

The strength! What an amazing book. I absolutely loved this book just as much as the first three if not more. A perfect ending to this novella and i can’t wait to see more of these two in the next book.

Short and sweet

Despite being shorter than the others so far, Not Negotiable is just as 'readable' as others in Trident Security series.

It was nice to see Parker and Shelby in the line up and although we met them at The Club in 'His Angel' it is not especially necessary to have 'read' others in the series.
