Publisher's Summary

Nathaniel West doesn’t lose control.

As the playboy CEO of West Industries, he governs the boardroom during the day; as a strict dominant with exacting rules, he commands the bedroom at night. He never takes on inexperienced submissives, but when Abigail King’s application comes across his desk, he breaks his own restrictions and decides to test her limits.

Abby’s combination of innocence and willingness is intoxicating, and Nathaniel is soon determined to collar her as his own. As long as she follows his orders and surrenders herself fully to him, no one will get hurt.

But when Nathaniel begins falling for Abby on a deeper level, he realizes that the trust must go both ways - and he has secrets which could bring the foundations of their entire relationship crashing down....

Oh Nathaniel....blushing over here...

This book is Nathaniel POV and let me tell you what a POV. You will also find out his past and some steamy stories that made him why and who he is. There are some extra scenes that are not in the first book and I enjoyed them. NW is not as bad as he seemed in book 1. The narrator was good and I think worth a credit. Happy Listening!

Disappointed :(

Any additional comments?

Disappointed...I thought I was getting a new book with new stories. This is just a recollection of events in the first book only in the male characters point of view. Nothing was really different. Big let down for me.

Nice insight into Nathaniel

This was a good book. Yes, it's the same story as the first book, however there are differences. You get to hear it from Nathanael's point of view. See how he feels and reacts to the same situations; conversations he has with his friends, etc. Book 1 only gives Abby's side for the most part. The narrator ended up being good. He was very robotic at times but did well at changing his voice for the different characters. Based on the sample provided I almost didn't buy because of his robotic tone but I'm glad I did now.

HIS VS. HERS !!!

Would you try another book from Tara Sue Me and/or William Sharpe?

Absolutely. I listened to the first book "Submissive" and most BDSM books are more often than not portrayed by the thoughts of the female submissive; this one seen through the eyes and heard through the thoughts of the Dominant was refreshingly different.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The most interesting, I suppose, was Nathaniel West's feelings for Abigail and his ability to throw his walls of denial up so easily. No least interesting aspects.

What three words best describe William Sharpe’s performance?

Jerky, but promising.<br/><br/>I believe with time his performance will get better; sounded like he just needed to relax a bit. The timbre of his voice for Nathaniel was sexy and a little sultry - I believe that time and experience will definitely perfect both his male and female voices. Audible (or whomever does the matching) please give him more opportunities.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yep, most definitely.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the third installment; hope that TSM's books/series continue to show up (in order) on Audible.

New Narrator Needed

Love the sexy story line bit the narrator took most of the enjoyment away. Very dull and monotone.

  • Overall

Tantalizing, edgy, heartwarming and romantic.<br />

This is such a great book series. I just can't get enough of Abigail and Nathaniel.

Nathaniel and Abigail should be on HBO. Sue Me should have a series with these good books she has written!

Liked the story but....

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No, couldn't get past the readers voice.

What other book might you compare The Dominant to and why?

50 shades is the most obvious, but they are completely different

Would you be willing to try another one of William Sharpe’s performances?

No

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes

Repetition

Is there anything you would change about this book?

It was the same as "The Submissive" just from a different point of view all the scenes were the same.

Would you be willing to try another book from Tara Sue Me? Why or why not?

Yes, but a different series

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His voice was very robotic.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

Romance was fine.
