Publisher's Summary

A stand-alone book in the NYC Doms series.

The engagement may be fake...but the handcuffs? Not so much.

She’s feisty, gorgeous, impossible. Submissive. And all mine.

I don’t do half-assed relationships. When I set my eyes on the most headstrong, tenacious submissive I’ve ever met, I’m all in. I’ll show her the dark, sensual world she craves, dominate her, and leave her begging for more. But when her safety’s endangered, she needs more than a dom.... She needs a safeguard.

Love the NYC Doms!

Give me an alpha male and a strong female lead and I am hooked. Safeguard has both of these, and I was hooked from the first line. This is book two of the series, and though there are overlapping characters, it easily stands alone. Zach is an NYC police officer and a member of the club Verge. He meets Beatrice and finds her response to him just what he is looking for. He is all in for this woman. Beatrice craves everything Zach gives her, but is she willing to be his submissive? This is story of self discovery for Beatrice. She is a woman that I really enjoyed getting to know, asking herself all the questions, working through the answers and her feelings. Add in that Zach is so protective and you can feel his love, it makes their story so worth this listen. Henry also adds great layers with crazy family members, interactions with Diana and Tobias from Deliverance and an edge of suspense that kept me guessing to the end. This is a wonderful addition to the series. Gunnar Qualen and Jenna St. Claire bring this story to life with their wonderful narration. Zach is a character is strong, alpha, and needs a voice that portrays every command and every feeling. Qualen gives Zach everything, from the strong rules to the loving care. St Claire is the perfect compliment, with Beatrice. She is full of spunk, loves to stand up for herself, gives Zach a run for his money yet has very true feelings. St Claire lets us feel her conflicts and we get to go through it with each line she gives us. This team has great chemistry and I loved the performance.

My Two Pennies

This is a great story that has a blend of action, suspense and a Dom/Sub romance mixed throughout the story. Beatrice is a strong confident woman that is also a submissive when she’s inside Verge with Zach. Their story is intense and consuming, the way Zach is always eyes wide open and protective at all times. I enjoyed the way there was a bit of mystery halfway through and I was kept on my toes. A standalone in a series that you can read out of order without feeling as if you’re missing parts of the storyline.

Loved it

I absolutely adored the love and mutual respect the 2 main characters had for one another. Action, steamy, intense and so good. Gunnar & Jenna did an amazing job narrating but, then again they always do an awesome job!

Safeguard

I love this hot and steamy standalone which is part of the NYC Doms series. This book is about Zach, the sexy dominant who is also a NYC police officer, and his feisty submissive, Beatrice. There was suspense, danger, and a mystery in the story mixed in with hot and kinky sex. I love this series and am looking forward to the next book. Gunnar and Jenna, as always, did a great job bringing this story to life. I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Exciting!

Jane Henry sure knows how to write an amazing story! NYC cop and a strong willed woman always make for an amazing time! GQ and Jenna brought it to life with an excellent narration. They make a fine team with connections that you can feel in their voices.

A good little story

I enjoyed this story, but it wasn't anything I was extremely impressed with. The storyline has a few twists, but it was somewhat predictable in certain ways. There were some hot scenes, but the performance of the narrators was just really manufactured. It sounded like they were reading a script the entire time and it kind of took away from the heat of the moment during those parts and almost made them a touch cringey. I think this might have been something I'd have liked a bit more if reading it instead of listening to it for that very reason. I didn't know this was a standalone, but that didn't bother me either. I know who the main characters from the first book were, Diana and Tobias, and the gist of their story, so I won't tell you that you need to read the first book before this one because it's not really necessary. I personally skipped the first book because it didn't interest me; I don't have any kids and books about women with kids don't sound appealing to me for that reason so I just skipped it and it had no impact on this book. Anyway, it was good, but that's about it. I wish I could say it was exceptional, but I'm just going to hold out hope that the third book in the series will blow me away. I'm just hoping the narration is at least a little more convincing because I really love Jane Henry's books but listening to narrators sounding "fake" takes me out of the story and makes it hard to stay as immersed as I need to be.

Suspense And True Love Story!!!

Safeguard by Jane Henry was full of surprises. It had love story, dominance and suspense. The relationship between Beatrice and Zach was one that I just wanted to route for. However I’ve never wanted to smack someone more than her mother! GQ and Jenna made the story come to life and did a great job.

Sizzling Chemistry!

This is the second book in the NYC Doms Series. The series has characters intertwined. You can listen to this story as a standalone, or out of order. Beatrice and Zach's story is well written, and captivating. They met at the club Verge, and they have a Dom/Sub relationship. Zach, a NYC police officer, is dominant, handsome, caring, and protective. Beatrice, a businesswoman, is strong, confident, and feisty, but also Zach's sweet submissive. They share a strong and sizzling chemistry. The story has suspense, mystery, and a beautiful HEA. I loved to see again the characters from the first book. Gunnar Qualen and Jenna St. Claire did a great job with the narration. I love their voices together. I enjoyed it. Looking forward to listen to the next book in the Series, Conviction.

Zach and Beatrice

While this was book2 in the series I started here and loved this audiobook. I’m a huge fan of the author and narrators and had a backlog of audiobooks to listen to so I was shocked to see that this series wasn’t heard yet! GQ does an alpha dominate male so well that it’s easy to envision Zack and his need to look after Beatrice. Jenna did a fabulous job of being Beatrice as well, showcasing her indecision and passion and her fright when she is taken. I love Jane’s mind with all her characters and she writes amazing ones that come to life in audio and let me escape to another place where I can be a part of the story. Wonderful audiobook and onto the next one because yay, Jane, Jenna and GQ!!♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

Enhanced narration

While I loved the first book in this series, Safeguard was even better. The dual narration takes the story to an entirely new level. The storyline in this one wasn’t what I expected but I like the variation so that every story isn’t the same.
