Publisher's Summary

When Skye Madden is caught trespassing at an exclusive ski resort while trying to support herself as a tabloid photographer, she is stunned to discover that her childhood crush, Aidan Hastings, is the head of security. More shocking still, Aidan tells her in no uncertain terms that if she is found snooping around the resort again he'll take her over his knee and give her a spanking she'll never forget.

When her boss sends her back to the same resort a year later on another assignment, Skye can't help but remember Aidan's warning. But a spanking quickly becomes the least of her worries after she gets lost on the mountain. While trying to find her way back, things go from bad to worse when she witnesses a cold-blooded murder, and she is left with no choice but to confess everything to Aidan. Worst of all, it appears that the murder is connected to the Russian mob.

Aidan decides he's taking no chances with his best friend's little sister, a girl he's never been able to forget. As a former special agent, he is more than ready to do whatever is needed to keep her safe, even if that means taking her into hiding in an isolated cabin. But Skye Madden has grown even more stubborn and headstrong than he remembered, and he soon realizes it will take quite a bit more than just a bare-bottom spanking to bring her in line.

Even with her world collapsing around her, Skye wonders how she can let this man - someone who has a place called a "punishment room" in his house - start to claim her heart again. Can she learn to trust her firm protector, or will she take matters into her own hands and put her life in even greater danger?

Publisher's Note: Protective Custody is an erotic novel that includes spankings, sexual scenes, anal play, elements of BDSM, and more. If such material offends you, please don't buy this book.

STOCKHOLM SYNDROME LOVE!!!!

Where does Protective Custody rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Its just ok...really not my kind of story....

Would you recommend Protective Custody to your friends? Why or why not?

Probably not...but I do belong to a group who will eat this story right up...they have been told about it!

What does Philip Alces bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I do like his narrations...he is good!

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

No

Any additional comments?

** i was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

First off, I have no problem with BDSM...I am actually a fan of it, if done correctly....this was not done correctly!

Skye is warned by Aiden not to sneak onto the property he works security for again or she was going to get a spanking...they knew each other fro the past...and had a mutual attraction already. Months later Skye sneaks back on to the resort and witnesses something she shouldn't have, of course she gets caught and Aiden decides he needs to hide her away for her safety....While in hiding he basically takes advantage of her as she begs him not to, spanks her, violates her and dominates her before even introducing her to the rules and expectations of the dom/sub relationship...gets consent from her, or anything else! I am a firm believer that no means no and even if our bodies are aroused, it doesn't mean we are consenting...I feel books like this introduce people to the wrong idea about this lifestyle and can get people in trouble! I don't think I will listen to anymore of this authors books!

excellent!

this hot, sexy, steamy book is expertly narrated by a pro. The premise of an uninitiated woman being brought into the BDSM scene by a childhood acquaintance/ crush is tremendously appealing! The author drew me in expertly from page one, and the voice actor conveyed ALL of the emotions well, and realistically. **I was given a copy of this book in exchange for offering an honest and unbiased review**
I was surprised by the professional rendering, expecting typical independent style. For real, this is a standalone well-done audio book.

best erotic bdsm novel ever!!!

What did you love best about Protective Custody?

This may be the most well written erotic bdsm novel I have ever read. The discipline/punishment/romance components are so well done that it leads me to read it over and over again.... SO VERY HOT. And the reader of the audio book has the most incredible voice...Phillip Alces
Fabulous read, fabulous author!!!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Aidan was my favorite character.... love his kinks

What does Philip Alces bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The most magnificent voice ever, perfection for this character, incredible talent. Between him and Zachary Webber, I am spoiled for any other readers for life!!!! BRAVO!!!

Any additional comments?

Fabulously well done, more more more please. :)

Mixed emotions over this audiobook

If you could sum up Protective Custody in three words, what would they be?

Amateur writing skills

Would you be willing to try another book from Natasha Knight? Why or why not?

Not sure. The narrator was good, but the story lacked development and flow.

What does Philip Alces bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Philip Alces brought the characters and story to life with his narration, however the writing was lacking.

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

I try to listen to all audio-books in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

I felt that the writing was hit and miss. I think that when the female was performed it would have been better if done by a female narrator. I'm not sure if the male narrator contributed to my disdain for the heroine or not due to his portrayal of her, but I was very annoyed by the heroine and her immature nature and whining. The story was interesting in parts, but didn't flow or develop smoothly. The sex scenes were good for some ear porn, but it seemed like the writer was trying too hard.

Good Performance

Even a good performance could not save this book. I didn't like either of the main characters, they were very two dimensional and neither had a lot of redeeming qualities. I think what really bothered me the most about this book was how Aiden took charge with no negotiation as to power exchange. How do you take a naive woman who has no idea about bdsm and beat her with a paddle for an unlimited number of strikes until she comes around to your way of thinking? That is not a dom, that's a bully. Skye never really seem affected by what she had witnessed and acted like a silly school girl through most of the book. The sex scenes were hot, but with liking for the characters, they seemed forced.

I hadn't heard Philip Alces before, but I thought he did a creditable job with what he had to work with.

*I received this book as a gift for an honest review*
