Publisher's Summary

Ryan Church and Jill Paxon enjoyed their life as Master and submissive until the day Ryan's entire world crumbled. No longer able to fulfill his end of the contract, Ryan did what he thought was best for Jill. He let her go.

Eighteen months later, Ryan is working for Ian Taggart as the Dom in Residence at the elite BDSM club Sanctum when his former submissive walks through the door looking for a job. Jill has changed, but his desire for her is still insatiable. Jill, shattered by his past rejection, can't trust Ryan, but she needs the job. Back in the community where she once felt safe and secure, she longs for the life she lost and the man she loved.

Ryan is presented with an opportunity to restore his wealth and name, but it could cost him his last chance at rebuilding a life with the woman he loves. When the secrets Jill has carefully hidden from Ryan are exposed, a terrible twist of fate might take her out of his life forever.

Stubborn Love

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This was a great 2 hour tale about the resident Dom an his lady love. Insecurities, fears of love and loss all swirl together in this love story of regret, heartache and second chances. The hero saves the heroine and heroine saves the hero. Absolutely love the depiction of strength in submission and love in dominance.

Good quick listen

Would you try another book from Lexi Blake and/or Ryan West?

I like the series, but I think a full book is much better

If you’ve listened to books by Lexi Blake before, how does this one compare?

Too short to really develop the story

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Ryan West did a good job

Did Sanctum inspire you to do anything?

GET THE REST OF THE BOOKS IN THE SERIES

Good series

I've really enjoyed this series. The stories are interesting and I really like the completed relationship aspect of each book while continuing the thread of the hunt for a bad guy. And the heat is a nice sizzle. This novella was one of my favorite stories (really laughed at Ian's conversation with Jill near the end), but then Lexi had to go and give yet another heroine body image issues. Fat ass, saggy boobs. Really? This is supposed to be fantasy. Erotic imagery with an interesting story surrounding it. Why do all your heroes have perfect, hard physiques while the females feel squishy and a little chubby. You ruined the last love scene for me. Because while I appreciate that women don't have to look perfect to be loved. THIS IS FICTION. Give us great looking heroes AND heroines. Make the secondary characters imperfect if you think you need to appeal to every female's self esteem. Ugh.

Sanctum!

I have followed the whole Masters and Mercenaries series by Lexi Blake and really enjoy the offshoot novellas into other characters. Can a Dom be saved by a sub --YES! Ryan West does a splendid job on the narration. It is a standalone novella, but I think your experience would be greatly enhanced if you read the rest of the series. Just sayin' :)

Sweet and romantic... even for a Dom

Finally we get to learn more about all the other people who work at sanctum.

Although I'd never heard about Ryan in any of the other books, he's a great addition to the family of Doms and subs at sanctum. Ryan West, as usual, does a phenomenal job with the narration... almost makes you wonder if he is in fact a true dom.... his voice is sexy enough to melt my panties.... yum!

Really Good

Ryan West gets better and better as long as he doesn't have to do
