Publisher's Summary

In the dim lights of Aurora’s premier kink club waits an alpha eager to take control. Billionaire Crawford Daniels has bedded submissives before, but he’s never given one his collar. That privilege is reserved for the man who’s strong-willed enough to tell him no, but whose pretty lips always say yes. Crawford wants more than a pet - he wants a partner. Someone to pamper and spoil or punish. 

Hidden behind case reports and paperwork waits an omega afraid to give it all up. Owen Ellis has fought tooth and nail to rise above his omega status and find success. He’s educated, successful, and independent, but deep inside, he knows something is missing. A mistake during his teenage years has led to a lifetime of loneliness, and Owen refuses to surrender his heart again. He’s afraid to be hurt. 

He’ll never let another alpha in. But some rules are meant to be broken. When Owen meets Crawford and sparks fly, Owen has to decide if happiness is worth the risk. The choice is always his. He can walk away and embrace loneliness - or he can wear Crawford’s collar and obey. 

Obey, the first audiobook in His Command series, contains scenes so steamy, your screens will fog; one of the hottest uses for an ice cube ever; an introduction to a club you'll never want to leave, and a happily ever after that proves in the end, love really does win.

sweet HEA... Oh Crawford...

This is a very simple pet/master story with a very light intro into BDSM. This book is almost 5 hours and that was just not enough. It lacked character development, situation development and relationship development. It didn't have the time to fully describe the critical moments that begged to be explained. I had to fill in the gaps myself to the point where I wondered ... who is writing this story? Piper or me?

Also, if I hear the words Alpha and Omega again, I'm going to scream. It's really sub/dom but still, over usage of the words in the beginning drove me nuts.

This story has a major twist to how things are in life. Without having to say too much, I found this "reality" hard to digest to the point where I thought it was nuts. But, if you can get pass this, after all it's just fiction, then perhaps this is a good story. Take it for what it is... entertainment.

Michael Pauley is the reason why I gravitated towards this book. And, of course, he doesn't disappoint. Even though I felt the story was lacking in a few ways, Michael was able to totally enhance this book to the point where I was engaged at all times. He is amazing! Narration is perfect!

I did enjoy Crawford's relationship with Owen. Love their chemistry... this is what kept me engaged. I wish this book was at least twice as long for proper development. It left me wanting more.

Enjoy!

Very enjoyable listen!

I knew going into this that I would enjoy the narration because, well it's Michael Pauley, you can't go wrong with him narrating a story. As expected the story was well told and it was easy to determine voices. The story itself is good as well. It's a slightly different take on the omegaverse and the dom/sub universe as well. I have seen some reviews that were disappointed about all the happenings that went on off page but for me that didn't affect my enjoyment of the story at all. This isn't a long book but we get enough of the world building and character building to enjoy the story. At first I was concerned at how quickly Owen turned over his submission but as the relationship grew and I saw more of how Crawford treated him it became very clear that Owen still held the power in the relationship. At no point was Owen's choice taken away from him about anything. In every step that was taken Crawford gave the decision over to Owen. This was a sweet story with little to no angst and a HEA. I'm looking forward to what's next in this series.

love it!

Obey by Piper Scott is the first book in the His Command series. Crawford and Owen are interesting characters who I felt drawn in by. The story is entertaining and satisfying, with an mpreg and light BDSM.

The audiobook is narrated by Michael Pauley. A great voice that helps the listener get lost into the story. The personalities of the characters shine through. Great job!

we all have choices ...

Would I listen to it again: yes
Did the story keep me engaged: yes
Was I invested in the characters: yes

Story comment: good pace, interesting characters and an intriguing story... I just wish it were longer, it's characters and their dynamic needed further developing.

I enjoyed MIchael Dean's narration. I had no problem distinguishing characters, felt the emotion and chemistry between the characters and he bought the book to life.

Loved it!

This was my first read from this author and it won’t be my last. First I want to say I absolutely love Michael Dean. He is one of my favorite narrators. He definitely did not disappoint with his portrayal in this book.

Now I have never really been a fan of MPREG but after this my interest has now been peeked and I have read several of them. What I liked about this book is the story itself. There was such a struggle for Owen. He fought so hard to forget his past. Crawford is all he needed to do that. Their chemistry and the ways Crawford knew to take care of him and give him what he needed were beautiful. The struggles and the loneliness were heart wrenching but in the end you could feel the love these two men had for each other.

Thank you for such a great read. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

fighting instincts

When you try and fight your instincts and you have a powerful Alpha telling you to stop fighting you end up with a great story. These 2 characters are a great start to the series.

Wonderful World Building!

Best thing about Obey is the world Piper Scott builds, there are some unique twists and very specific ideas I really like. Of course there's terrific chemistry between the main characters and the D/s relationship is nicely done.

Michael Dean does a wonderful job infusing emotion into these guys, especially Owen.

Very enjoyable

I don't read omegaverse stories very often. They aren't usually thing, but I really enjoyed this one. I loved Crawford and Owen. It was a great journey through their romance. I wasn't sure about the narrator at first but the more I listened there I enjoyed him and really got into the story.

A good start to a new series

I really enjoyed this book when it first came out so when I saw it was on audiobook I was definitely interested, more so when I found out it was narrated by the super talented Michael Pauley!
I love the connection between Crawford and Owen and the way Crawford introduces Owen into the BDSM lifestyle was done with care and much thought for Owen’s choices.
The BDSM in this book is light compared to some books I have read/listened to so if this is of concern don’t be put off.
This story has a HEA and is sweet with just the right amount of heat.
I’m looking forward too the next in the series.

Great non shifter omegaverse series start

Beautiful and well written book about two lovers that were both exactly what the other needed. The book is very emotional but I couldn’t stop listening.

Cannot wait to listen to the next book in the series

as great as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. Michael Pauley is one of the 8 narrators (so far), I can listen without break and have no problems to follow. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

Powerful story

I read this book a little while ago and I had forgotten how amazing the story was. It is sweet, sexy and heartbreaking.

Michael Pauley's narration was once again great, and brought tears to my eyes and made me feel everything Owen and Crawford go through

Good series start and unique set up.

I’m always a littler nervous going into D/s books but I really like how the Dom handled Himself and his submissive in this one. It was a mix of sexy and sweet. But had it’s cheesy moments, the world building was interesting and it was a nice quick listen

Who's the Master?

Michael Pauley is one of my favourite narrators and he does an excellent job of giving the characters their own individual voices and bringing the story to life.
These characters are complex and intriguing with well-developed back stories that motivate them in their current relationship. I love that the omegas are free to become what they want to be and Owen has chosen to become a counsellor, helping other omegas work through issues from their past so that they can have a happier future.
Alpha billionnaire Crawford Daniels is also interesting as his father was an omega and his mother was the alpha in their relationship so Crawford has learned the value of omega rights from his dad.
It was an interesting journey as Crawford entices and empowers Owen all while calling to his omega nature in the basest of ways. He shows his respect in offering Owen the choice to engage in their relationship, letting him decide if he's okay with the way things are progressing.
I highly recommend that you read/listen along for yourself if you are a fan of Omegas and MPreg.
