Publisher's Summary

Ever since her last relationship ended in heartbreak, things have been going downhill for romance novelist Aurora Kane. Determined to revive Aurora's career, her publisher Donovan Tate decides to take matters into his own hands. 

Upon visiting Aurora at home and finding her wallowing in misery, Donovan makes it clear that he will be taking charge of her life, whether she likes it or not. When she tests his resolve, he does not hesitate to bare her bottom and spank her hard and thoroughly, and she cannot help begging for more as Donovan brings her to a quivering, shameful climax after the punishment. 

Donovan's bold dominance and masterful lovemaking rekindle Aurora's passion and inspire her writing in a way nothing else has before, but painful memories of the past still lurk in her mind. Can she dare to hope that this love story will have a happy ending?

A TITILLATING AUDIO THAT HAD ME BEGGING TO SUBMIT!

REWRITING THE RULES by Morganna Williams was a SIZZLING HOT listen that had me squirming in delight!


THE STORY:

Erotic romance writer extraordinaire, Aurora Kane, is angry and bitter and has secluded herself in her home after having her heart—and confidence--shattered to smithereens by a past Dom. She has lost her spark for life and her writing mojo but all is not lost because her big, dark and dominantly sexy publisher Donovan Tate comes barging into her life determined to help her get out of her funk. And this stern, itchy palmed, no nonsense man has some mighty wicked techniques to get her to STOP MOPING and return to the world of the living!

While at first, Aurora rebels at his high handed methods, and pushes back—HARD!—she realizes rather quickly that she is no match for this gorgeously domineering man. And even though Donovan realizes he has his hands full with this temperamental writer with the far too saucy mouth and all those luscious, mouthwatering curves, he is hopelessly beguiled by the curvy beauty all the same. As it turns out, Ms. Kane is a “mass of contradictions.” After all, how can she fight him so fiercely while at the same time her body clings to his and yields so sweetly? And although deep down Aurora is terribly afraid to love, laugh and feel, Donovan knows somewhere in there is a fierce sub begging to be set free. And, sure, it takes a lot of patience—and plenty of punishing--on his part, but Donovan soon has her aching for his hot burning dominance and quivering for his tender loving possession! But can his non-negotiable formula for reviving her writing…and reigniting her heart…include a lifelong contract for love?


MY MUSINGS:
Holy smokes! Talk about a steamy audio that commands attention from start to finish! REWRITING THE RULES is oozing with scintillating sexy times, panty melting hot spankings, aching tenderness, and lots of smoldering sparks!

I really enjoyed the setup where the strong and stern and doting hero is determined to help release the heroine, a burned out erotic romance writer with a heart full of hurt, from her self-imposed exile! And along the way he brings out the naughty little vixen in her! Overall, I thought the author did a really good job with this story, where we have this defiant yet emotionally vulnerable sub who is hungry for her new editor/Dom’s masterful touch AND his firm yet loving discipline. He stirs something inside her and over time she thrives in the structured, nurturing environment he provides for her. He ultimately proves to be her safe haven, just as she ends up being his, and through Donovan’s loving guidance he helps his precious girl heal, body and soul.

Aurora and Donovan have RED-HOT CHEMISTRY and I found the kinky interludes incredibly arousing. And holy smokes! Donovan is a SEX MACHINE! This hunky Dom’s sexual appetite is INSATIABLE, and I loved how he unapologetically charges into Aurora’s life and lays down the law—whether she likes it or not. And of course the bratty sub tests his limits at every turn, pushing him into meting out his stern brand is punishment/pain. All for her benefit of course! But even though he is a filthy talking hornball who does some very sadistic things to his disobedient little sub, I love how much he cares for her and deep down his intentions are always honorable. (Well mostly, hee hee!) And I LOVED that he has a bit of a warm and cuddly Daddy Dom in him as well!

That said, I had some difficulty connecting emotionally with this couple, especially at the beginning, due to the lack of romantic buildup prior to the sex. (I think Donovan delivered his first spanking/screaming O within five minutes of meeting Aurora and then followed it up with another spanking/seduction scene shortly thereafter!) This gives new definition to the term “Fast Burn” ha-ha!) And although, as I mentioned, I found the erotica in this story to be INCREDIBLY titillating, I thought the plot and romantic development came at the expense of the plethora of torrid sex. Their relationship, for the most part, seemed to be carnal in nature, and perhaps if the author had showed things down a tad and played out more emotional/romantic beats, it would have made the story even more rewarding!

Those issues aside, however, there is no denying Morganna Williams is an incredibly talented erotic romance scribe. And I LOVED the ending at the club where the heroine finally puts her demons to rest and gets her heartfelt HEA with Donovan! This author sure can pen a highly sensual, uber addictive tale featuring an overpoweringly sexy Alpha Dom who makes his feisty sub melt like butter! And for that I am totally GRATIFIED!

THE NARRATION:
This story was wonderfully narrated by Jack Calihan. He delivered a pitch perfect performance of Donavan Tate. His deeply masculine, velvety smooth and commanding tone suited this character’s take-charge persona to a T! And Mr. Calihan’s narration of Aurora was highly entertaining as well. But let’s get “real” here…we listen to this sub-genre for the hot alpha Doms and “Donovan” left me all aflutter. And omg..every time he crooned “good girl” he had me positively BEGGING to submit! I look forward to listening to more entertaining audios by this awesome narrator!

Dominant New Boss Claims Erotic Author

I received a free copy of the audio book at my request and am leaving a voluntary and honest review.
An erotic writer, previously in a don/sub relationship is scarred by the way she was treated by the dom. Now she is isolated, avoiding people and any form of sex and writing poor books.
The new boss at her publishing house is a dom and believes he can turn her around...and with discipline and affection begins the journey
There are a number of discipline scenes and things begin to turn around.
A definitely BDSM story where each party is consenting and fulfilled.
The narrator has a perfect deep and male alpha voice. The women’s voices are ok, sometimes perhaps high in tone then needed.

Sexy, romantic, and deeper than you think

This book is full of sexy and some sweet romance while carrying a message that is deeper than you would think. The beauty between a Dom and their Sub is amazing!

Narrator does good

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

No issues with the narration of the book, the story itself really stretches the imagination,
(Very Mild spoiler) within the beginning of the book the male protagonist looks up the female protagonist and goes to her house against her will and forces himself on her against her will, wouldn’t call it bdsm as much as rapey, not for me.

Good book

Donovan was a Dom and Aurora was a loner sub. He came into her life and took over. It was funny when Aurora put garlic potato flakes in his car, then turned on the hose. All this because she was jealous. I did not care for the scene with the ginger. You can imagine where he put it. I thought Donovan was nuts to suggest a scene at the BDSM club but it worked out. In the end, there was a very nice HEA.

Jack Calihan did a great job with the narration. He has a voice for romance. I was given this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Another great quickie

Aurora is a brat. She is sassy. She needs someone to help her get disciplined. That is exactly what Donovan attempts to do. This book is steamy and full of spankings. Punishments seem to be the way Aurora can calm down and focus. Donovan is a harsh Dom that enjoys creating those punishments. Between the spankings, is a lot of hot steamy scenes that will melt any Kindle.

Jack Calihan narrates this story wonderfully. I enjoyed his bratty and sassy narration of Aurora. Mr. Calihan makes Donovan the strong, alpha he is described as. Mr. Calihan's narration enhanced this story and brought the characters to life.

I LIKED IT!

I enjoyed it. I actually read this book due to the narrator. He has a great voice for erotic romance. The author did a good job with the characters. This was not my first book by this author and definitely not my last. I look forward to reading more of her books.

A Dom and his Sub...

Jack Calihan was great, His voice was so hot for this kind of story....
Aurora is an erotic romance author. Donovan is her publicist. Donovan reads her blogs and is dismayed by what he reads. He makes an appointment to meet and discuss his concerns. He is met with rebellion and nastiness.
Donovan takes matters into his own hands. After a few not so nice incidents, they come to terms and learn to trust each other.
What a journey. I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend. This was deff HOT HOT HOT...

It’s okay!

This story on its own is just okay for me! I would have preferred more story regarding their relationship. That being said the sexual scenes were very erotic. The narration was amazing. If you like a good spanking punishment then you may want to try this book.

Good story

I found this story hot and intriguing but not the best BDSM story when it comes to consensual participation.
However, it was entertaining.
No unnecessary descriptions of surroundings
Lots of dialogues
Hot scenes

Narrator:
Great voice, clear pronunciation and read with feelings.

4 stars overall.

Delightfully romantic, deliciously sexy

This book was everything I love in a good BDSM romance! The relationship between the two main characters was both super sweet and super hot. I loved the storyline and the characters themselves. I look forward to listening to the next book in the series.

Jack is sexy as heck! I adore his voice. I love listening to his deep tambor when he's doing his dom voice. It always sends shivers of delight up my spine. Keep up the amazing work Jack!!

Sassy submissive

I loved this audio, and Jack Calihan has one of the smoothest voices out there. If you are looking for a short BDSM book this is for you. Morganna Williams did an amazing job.

A Bratty Submissive!

If you love dominant alpha males, bratty submissives, hot sex and lots of spankings, then this is the book for you. This was an erotic listen with some laugh out loud moments. Fun and entertaining. I loved it!

Jack Calihan does a great job bringing this story to life.
