Publisher's Summary

Garrett was at his breaking point.

There were only so many times in a week you should have to see someone you were...attracted to...infatuated with...but certainly didn’t have a crush on. Doms didn’t have those. Especially on a customer who probably wasn’t even gay, much less a sub. Business 101 - do not flirt with a client.

Wyatt was losing his mind.

Hiding his obsession was getting harder and harder. All he wanted to do was kneel in front of Garrett and call him Master. But the sexy insurance agent never seemed to see him. He only noticed the nervous, awkward insured who came in way too often.

When the two men are missing what’s right in front of their faces, it might take family stepping in to point out the obvious. That they were meant for each other.

This story contains M/m sexual content, BDSM elements, spanking, and orgasm denial.

The Bound & Controlled series follows four brothers, who are each involved in the BDSM lifestyle in some way, as they look for love. Each book features a different brother, but the books are best enjoyed in order. The books are not taboo in nature.

Fantastic short, sweet and kinky

The book started out so sweet, and for a short story it works great, the relationship evolves beautifully and respectfully. This is one thing I love about Shaw’s books- the accurateness and realness of the BDSM lifestyle even when describing kinks that are a bit less mainstream. Wyatt was so endearing with his shy crush on Garrett, and they got together in a slow manner, and that fit the story very well, and I liked they took their time in such a short story (when often that is not the case). Their sexual relationship was very hot, but still always with a undertone of consent (the most important thing in a BDSM book to me) and talking about limits, likes and dislikes. Two adults who know what they want, and no big egos involved. Garrett’s family was hilarious, the dynamic interesting, and made me want to read the next books as well.

The narration by Kenneth Obi is fantastic, this is the 4th book I listened to with his narration (I believe) and he has the right amount of emotion and character individuality. His voice is so pleasent and silky, both deep and light for each character.

Great start to the series

I enjoyed this story in audio. I felt that the narrator nailed Wyatt, made him come alive right away but I needed a little longer to warm up to the voice of Garrett. Once I'd warmed to Garrett, he became more real - so much so that I was so engrossed in listening I got a total shock when the book ended. I was definitely wanting more...
Great story of a sweet, sexy sub finding the perfect Dom for him.

Hot and Sensual

I really enjoyed this sweet and sensual read. Wyatt is just too cute in how he keeps making up excuses to go see Garrett at his office, and Garrett is really cluelessas to why Wyatt keeps coming by. When Garrett, a dom, finally realizes that Wyatt is a sub and wants him, it's great to see their relationship finally develop from there. Garrett and Wyatt really are perfect together and I absolutely love Garrett's family.
I really enjoyed the narrator, I think he did a great job of bringing the story to life and differentiating the characters.
I was provided a complimentary copy of this audiobook at my request.

Wyatt is adorable!

I've read this series and loved it, so I was excited when this audiobook was released. The narrator did a good job with the characters, especially Wyatt. I could feel the embarrassment mixed with determination in his voice. My commute practically flew by as I listened to this kinky yet sweet and funny story of two men finding in each other just what they need. I love Garrett's entire family, and Wyatt and Carter have a wonderfully supportive friendship. This is a great story!

An Amazing Start

I've read this entire series and adore it. I was so glad to hear it was being released on Audible. This was my first work by Kenneth Obi but it definitely won't be my last. He was amazing! He was able to define each character by voice so that I needed no dialogue tags to know which character was speaking. His voice was smooth and melodic and captured the essence of the story. Garrett is the first of the series that deals with a set of brothers. This is his and Wyatt's story. Wyatt is a sub who knows what he wants and he wants Garrett. Once Garrett realizes what fidgety Wyatt is looking for, he has no problem delivering!

Such a great story!

This was such a great read and I loved listening to this. I love Garrett and Wyatt. They both are perfect for each other. This is definitely a series I would recommend. I also love this narrator. He does an amazing job. I love it when a narrator brings the story to life.

The narration makes this

This is more novella than novel, and there isn't a ton of story here. It's mostly about one man finding another man he's sexually compatible with. I enjoyed Wyatt, and the scenes with his somewhat gender-fluid friend. Garrett, I never got much of a handle on. There's not a ton of character development. The sex, once it occurs, is hot, though, and there is humor, here and there, that I enjoyed.

I would have liked more. More plot, more character development, and more development of Garrett and Wyatt's relationship. Wyatt makes sex furniture, but they never USE it. We hear about this club, but don't see it first hand. It's like this is half a story.

The narrator does do a good job. The voices are distinct and the narration is smooth.

Bound & Controlled... A BDSM Book for Everyone!

Would you listen to Garrett again? Why?

This book touches on the world of BDSM. It isn't extremely detailed but does explain the concept of BDSM. I would recommend this book to someone who has never read BDSM and is interested. I wish I had a book like this when I first started reading BDSM. If you are interested in BDSM, PLEASE listen (or read) this book!

I can't wait to read the rest of this series!!!!

I listened to the audible of this book and I stayed up late to finish it because I just HAD to. Shaw Montgomery does a wonderful job with books in this genre. For someone like me who is not part of the BDSM lifestyle sometimes the books in this genre are hard to read and understand, but this author does a brilliant job of making sure you are able to see both POVs so that you understand the need, desire, and fulfillment of those things from both sides of the coin. I think this was a wonderful beginning to this series and I can't wait to read the brother's stories. My only complaint was that I wish the story could have been longer because I got really attached to Garrett and Wyatt really fast and I wasn't ready for it to be over. The ending, and I won't spoil it, but the ending was just swoon worthy :)

Kenneth Obi did a 5 star job on the narrating as well. This wasn't the first book I had heard him narrate and it definitely won't be the last :)

Loved this so very much

I love all things Shaw Montgomery I've read this book, Garrett is the first brother in the series the MCs are interesting Garrett really doesn't notice anything even if it hits him on the nose but he is good Dom, bound and controlled club is the club they go to. Fantastic book
Kenneth Obi has done really well with the story and characters, he gets this book, works it to become awesome listening
I highly recommend this if you like BDSM it's not hard hitting. But still gives us the idea of the club.

A promising start to the series

This is an enjoyable introduction to the series and the main characters involved. Garrett is one of four brothers who work together and also play together in the same BDSM club, although there are disappointingly no scenes set in the club this time around.

Wyatt is sweet yet annoying with all his worrying and fidgeting. I’m not really sure what Garrett saw in him to start with, apart from his desire to be his Dom and that he thought he was cute. He turns out to be a nice guy and a willing sub.

Garrett is controlled in his approach with Wyatt and in control of their relationship once he decides to pursue him. I loved the calm, sexy voice the narrator gave him.

The story focuses on setting up the characters and their situation with only a few explicit/spanking scenes. I was hoping they’d use one of the spanking benches that Wyatt had made. The BDSM content is mild in this story but hot nevertheless. I was disappointed we didn’t get the full conversation where Garrett and Wyatt discuss their limits/contract. The story just jumps past that. I would have liked more plot and to see Garrett and Wyatt's relationship in more detail. I assume this story sets up the next book in the series.

The narrator, Kenneth Obi, portrayed the characters to suit their personalities and made the story easy to listen to.

A short, hot listen!

This is a great book to listen to! Maybe not when out and about in public, at minimum with headphone :-)
Garrett is a Dom. Comfortable with his life, family who are all in the lifestyle and work that he enjoys. Until he meets Wyatt, a customer at their Insurance company who appears quite shy and skittish.
Wyatt is a Sub. He is working to make his furniture business his main source of income and was referred to Garrett's company for insurance. His attraction from afar becomes a bit more intense when seeing him regularly up close.
When Garrett learns of Wyatt's attraction and tendencies, it leads to a very satisfying end for them both.
The story itself flows really well. It's a short read but grabs your attention and keeps you throughout. We are given enough info on both characters and the surrounding family/friends to enhance our enjoyment and become involved in the MC's outcome. The Dom/Sub relationship is talked about in depth with acceptance and love, as is the different aspects that other characters in the book enjoy.
Kenneth Obi reads the characters really well. Using his voice to push out the power of a dom's voice but also the quiet, peaceful tones of submission.
A great listen that I'd recommend and I'm looking forward to listening to the rest of the family's stories.

The start of a great series

Another sweet and sexy short story from Shaw, I’m now looking forward to listening to the rest of the series. I enjoyed following Garrett and Wyatt’s relationship beginnings, especially the confusion of why Wyatt visits his Insurance office just sooooo many times! It’s nice how we, the listeners, know what’s going on with both of them - I was just dying to give them a nudge in the right direction.

We had a nice peep into the lives of Garrett’s brothers so I’m dying to listen to their stories now.

I’ve listened to Kenneth Obi’s narration before and love his grisly Dom voice....swoon! I’d recommend this book to anyone who likes a little spice in their lives.

Light BDSM

A great short book. Garrett is shown as a confdent dom and we get to see it once he realises Wyatt is a Sub. Great easy listen. Ended too quickly I want to know more about Garrett and Wyatt, and the other 3 brothers and his mum. Cant wait to listen to the rest of the series. These boys are adorable. Kenneth did a great job in narration

The Start of something good

Oh I just love a growly Dom and Kenneth Obi gives us the perfect growly gentleman Dom. Garrett’s instinct is to help calm and sooth his fidgety client Wyatt. The problem is Wyatt is a client and mixing business and pleasure is a no no. Little does he know that Wyatt has a crush on him and the two of them have been set up. I loved the dance they do around each other until realising they have what each other wants. From there on it just gets hotter. Garrett and Wyatt’s story is the perfect start to the series, introducing the other brothers and the club. This is a lovely sweet BDSM story.
Kenneth Obi is a new narrator to me and I think he portrayed both Garrett and Wyatt perfectly. His characterisation of them and Shaw Montgomery’s narrative helped me create a wonderful picture of Garrett and Wyatt. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

Garrett

What made the experience of listening to Garrett the most enjoyable?

I loved the way these two guys interacted with each other and their relationship progressed at a rather fast pace even though Garrett started off saying he didn't want to rush into it. The chemistry between them was super hot and I'm looking forward to hearing from the other brothers.

What other book might you compare Garrett to, and why?

This whole series is just great. A family that plays together stays together.

Any additional comments?

Wyatt had been crushing on his insurance agent Garrett for a year and things just started to get interesting. Right from their first date I could feel their chemistry as Wyatt had finally found the full time Dom he'd been looking for. Garrett loved to tease his sub by not moving too fast, but he was looking forward to having Wyatt at his feet. Wyatt very quickly found that he didn't feel weird around Garrett's family as they were all in the lifestyle.
