Publisher's Summary

I took her because I needed a hostage. I kept her because I wanted her.

Francesca Alessandro was just meant to be collateral, held captive as a warning to her father, but then she tried to fight me. She ended up sore and soaked as I taught her a lesson with my belt and then screaming with every savage climax as I taught her to obey in a much more shameful way.

She's mine now. Mine to keep. Mine to protect. Mine to use as hard and as often as I please.

Publisher's Note: Taken as Collateral is a stand-alone novel which is the second entry in the Mafia Masters series. It includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don't buy this book.

Good story with excellent narration

This was a good addition to the Mafia Masters series. Francesca was only to be held captive until her father could pay a debt. It did not work out that way. I recommend this series if you like dark mafia romance.

Jack Calihan did an outstanding job with the narration. He is an excellent voice actor. I was given this free copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The narrator absolutely ruined this book

I’m usually not super picky when it comes to narrators. If a story is well written I can almost always deal with bad narrators. This time though I just couldn’t. I got about 30 minutes into the story and decided it wasn’t worth my credit. Planning to return ASAP. If you really enjoy books by this author then I would suggest reading it instead.

if you like mafia stories you will love this.

This is a solid entry into the mafia romance genre. Enjoyed the back story and the narration by Jack Calihan as always hits all the right notes.

Not thrilled with Bimbo female character...

Struggled to finish...seems that is the case with almost all of the books by Piper that I have read and/or listened to. Not inclined to invest more time in her books when the female characters are all written as "Bimbo's".

Not sure how a woman can be angry at a "dominating" man that she is attracted to yet when he moves close to her or she can smell his "masculine scent" she loses all track of thought and becomes a bimbo?!?!? Ahhh....oh...Michael....etc.

If you are into this type of character along with a broody, dominant male, then you would probably enjoy Piper's books.

Jack does an ok job narrating, but I do not find his female character voices and sounds to be enjoyable. He does have a very deep voice that sounds great, but not doing both the male and female roles. I am sure there are better books suited for him or there should be a female actor to perform the female portions of the books he narrates.

This story was all over the place

The story was all over the place. The locations and timing was off. I wish the male narrator did a better job on the female voice. The whole story was a miss and I'm asking myself why I purchased this book.

secrets

The secret family connections were startling. Power, greed, betrayal, secrets. I enjoyed the humanization I'd Michael. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job bringing it to life.

Good Read

Taken as Collateral (Mafia Masters #2) was a good read by Piper Stone. Michael left the family business and became a movie star. He took Francesca as collateral and a warning to her father. She fought back and he didn’t expect that. I enjoyed reading this book and cant wait to read more by the author.

WOW!!

Piper Stone takes us on a twisted dark path with the second instalment in the Mafia Masters series. Taken as Collateral is a splendidly dark mafia romance, that literally sucked me in and submerged me into the story. I loved every minute of it. The characters are well-developed, compelling, and complex, with flaws. The intimate scenes are very well-written with BDSM elements and scorching hot.

Outstanding narration by Jack Calihan. He captured the characters, the searing chemistry, and the intensity found in the pages. I absolutely loved his performance. Overall, this is an engaging story with great characters and outstanding narration. I strongly recommend this audiobook. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Good Story

This was a good story with likeable leads. The story dragged in a couple of places, but had enough twists and turns to keep you listening. Fantastic narration by Jack Calihan.

Yes Sir?

The next Sons of Darkness to fall is Michael Cappalini aka filmstar Kelen Rock. After years of avoiding his obligations as heir, Michael is drawn back into the Mafia world when his father is seriously injured in an assassination attempt.

In an attempt to find and neutralise the threat he kidnaps Mafia Princess Francesca Alessandro. The chemistry between these two antagonists is off the chart from the start and only became hotter the further I got into the book.

Michael has no wish to fall in love and spends as much time punishing his captive as lusting over her. But in the end he will have to put his personal demons to rest if he is going to find his place, keep the peace and protect the woman he has come to care deeply for.

I thoroughly enjoyed this highly addictive dark Mafia Romance with excellent narration as always by Jack.
