Publisher's Summary

A discharged Army Ranger, Ben considers his job as a BDSM club security guard to be an excellent hobby. He's never been tempted to join in. But everything changes when the notorious Mistress Anne inadvertently reveals the caring heart concealed beneath her Domme armor.

Now, he's set his sights on the beautiful Shadowlands Mistress. Maybe he'd considered himself vanilla, but she can put her stiletto on his chest any day, any time. He'll trust her delicate hands to hold his heart. And if she wants to whip his ass on the way to an outstanding climax, he's just fine with that too.

Sure, he knows she likes "pretty boy" slaves. And he's older. Craggy and rough. And six-five. Minor hindrances. The mission is a go.

So Worth The Wait

Great narration & wonderful story. Although The Shadowlands tales are "stand alone", they are much better if they are read in order. This one more than most as it updates the lives of 2 other couples from earlier books. When Cherise said Ben the "vanilla" guard at Shadowlands and the sadist, Mistress Anne, "told her" they belonged together we couldn't imagine how. She's created an a awesome tale of exciting erotic romance and suspense that brings these two disparate characters together. I loved every listening to every minute.

Excellent!!!

Love Noah and Erin, they work so well together!
The extra quotes at the beginning of each chapter that are not in the book are a wonderful surprise.
Cherise's writing is awesome as usual!
My only complaint is that the chapter numbers stated in the audiobook do not match the the chapter numbers in the book.
On the hole this audiobook and book is well worth your time!

Better then I thought it would be.

I was worried since I always read/listen to books where the Hero is the master and I really worried if this would do it for me. Well it did and it was great. Now I have to wait patiently for the next one to come out on audio. -Dink.

I Love The Shadowlands Series, BUT...

...this title, "Servicing the Target," features a female Domme and male submissive/slave, which is just not for me. The writing and narration is, like all other books in this series, nothing short of wonderful; however, I can't seem to enjoy the F/m dynamic . I look forward to Audible's recording and release of the remaining books in this series.

Changing Rolls

I really love the two voices for the main characters. It really adds to the story. Ben is tough and protective but Ann brings out something more in him. But Ann's own thoughts about herself is also being challenged. She is always been an in-charge lady but Ben seems to be bring out a softer side. It is fun to see them dance around each other as they settle into their changing rolls with each other and deal with family drama as well.

Well, there’s more to Ben than we thought..

What was one of the most memorable moments of Servicing the Target?

The fight at the end of the book was awesome..we got to see the women in action and conquering their fears..to some degree.

Any additional comments?

This story was very unexpected. Mistress Anne and Ben coming together was a nice treat..I’m not sure how Ben never appreciated this side of his nature..or that Mistress Anne’s tastes would change from sadist to- being less sadistic☺️ I also enjoyed how Mistress Ann could still come together as a regular girl with the shadow kittens, but still keep the boundaries. Watching Ben and Anne come together and then watching as she sheds her ultra tough exterior to just normal tough as her life changes was and added bonus.

Great story and superb narrators!

I really enjoyed this book when I read it and had to wait quite a while before it was released on audio. The narrators really bring the characters to life! On the surface it doesn’t look Shadowlands employee Ben and Mistress Anne have a lot in common, but they mesh perfectly. Some people may not like the dominant female/submissive male dynamic, but Cherise Sinclair does a fantastic job making the story both believable and satisfying.

Another winner from Cherise

Where does Servicing the Target rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This was a good listen, but I wouldn't say it was my favourite of the series.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked getting more information on characters from previous books.

Which character – as performed by Noah Michael Levine and Erin deWard – was your favorite?

I love Noah Michael Levine's narration of Ben's character. He has a great voice for this series.

Another excellent book

I have really enjoyed revisiting the Masters of the Shadowlands in Audible. The stories are interesting and well told. The readers bring the characters to life. I particularly like the two readers, it gives a much more authentic feel to have a man and a woman share the presentation. The two chosen are ideal for the job.
Highly recommended

Wow!!

I have loved Anne and Bens characters from the very beginning..... that first peek at Ben when Jessica sought shelter during a storm. If you don't understand then start at the beginning. You will not be disappointed, especially if you like bdsm, men who are men and women who are strong yet still feminine. It's a great series. I love that Ben found his girl, one who makes it right for him to let go without making him feel less than he is, a man who likes his lady to take control. Another cracker. Thank you.

Narration disappointing

Having a female who's only contribution is to moan on queue and speak the odd sentence didn't work for me. If there are two narrators they should choose their roles or chapters and stick to them.

Awesome

Brilliant story brought to vivid life by the narrators. A nice change to have a male submissive and as usual Cherise makes you care about these people on their relationship journey. Please keep writing and recording!
