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.

I’m crying...

and not because the book was so sad but because it’s so filled with emotions. And what a series, this book is just as good as any of the previous books. The lady knows how to write a good story with great characters. Ben and Anne have their challenges, the process of changing things when you don't like changes is hard something both Ben and Anne is experiencing. The journey they take together and separately is exiting, fun, sad and very enlightening for them both. The chemistry between them is sparkling and I laughed and cried with them. Anne is trying so hard to be the hard mistress and Ben is trying to be what he thinks she wants him to be. Some of the characters from previous books gets a little story within the story and that's a real treat. The writing style is excellent, easygoing and still dealing with some heavy topics managing to make it very, very readable. Narrators: Clear pronunciation and read with feelings I enjoyed listening to this story even though I read it several times before. This is definitely a series I can read over and over again 5 stars

Cherise doesn’t fail

As with all the masters books, Cherise Sinclair has written a compelling and unique book. This book has elements of BDSM but it has been skillfully written into the plot. And even though you know there is going to be a HEA the twists and turns keep you interested in listening. I’ve loved all of the series & was very glad to see a true duet narration.

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.

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!
