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.

Dark Mafia Romance

This is the second book in the Mafia Masters Series. This is a dark mafia romance. Francesca and Michael's story is fast paced and intriguing. Michael is a Dom, commanding, ruthless, and powerful. Francesca, a mafia princess, is sassy, and strong. They share an instant attraction, and a sizzling chemistry. They are perfect together. The storyline is suspenseful. The supporting characters are intriguing. Jack Calihan did a great job with the narration.

Ehhh, just ehhh

I wanted to like this book I liked the concept, but it was very slow moving in some parts and then rapid in other parts. I gave it a try, but I couldn't get into it

Mafia romance at its best

I enjoyed this like I did book one, even better I would say. Primarily cause the story didn't feel as rushed and the end was longer with more detail. MCs are both enjoyable and Michael is just sexy. Can be a trigger for Sexual assault so please know that going in, this is a dark Mafia romance so so expect all hearts and flowers. Jack Calihan kicked ass narrating, his deep voice is perfect for this type of character!

Amazing Story!

All I can say is Wow! This was a fantastic joy ride. The story was so well written full of suspense, twists and thrills. Hats off to Piper Stone for an incredible story about two broken people from mafia families and how they came together, under unique circumstances, tore down each others walls to find love and trust in each other. The struggle was Real because the hero, Michael is a Dom trying to get a mafia princess Francesa to obey. Boy, did she give him hell with her tenacity. I loved this heroine! The narrator, Jack Calihan was off the charts incredible! His voice had me hook line and sinker for this story. Jack did every characters' voice distinctly and expertly not missing a beat. The sexy scenes in this Audible were scorchers!🔥🔥🔥🔥 Piper knows her Doms! The first sexy scene after her capture though, really disturbed me because he literally raped her. I found it troubling, but I wanted to see how the book would end so I preserved and was happy for the HEA. Warning for anyone with triggers but overall it was a really great roller coaster ride story for dark romance lovers.

Excellent, dark Mafia story!!!!

Taken as Collateral an Audiobook by Piper Stone was an explosive, mesmerizing, captivating story of Francesca and Michael. She’s the daughter of a mafia kingpin. Michael takes her for purposes of gaining the upper hand in a mafia war….not anticipating what her effect on him will be. He’s ruthless, unflinching, merciless, and totally enamored with her. This is book two of the Mafia Masters series. Though I hadn’t read book 1, this is easily a standalone story!!! Couldn’t stop listening!!!!

Phenomenally narrated by Jack Calihan. He does an incredible job of bringing out the author’s intent with the story, characters, and general feeling of the book. He has a voice like no other!!!! Keeps you engrossed and entertained!!!

I am volunteering to leave a review for an Advance Reader Copy of this Audiobook.

So many surprises!

I asked to receive this free review audible book and wrote this unbiased review. Once again Piper Stone has written a captivating dark Mafia romance that has numerous twists and turns. There were surprises that even caught me off guard. When Michael kidnapped Francesca, he never thought he would grow so fond of her. Their romance will be filled with many perils as they uncover truths and Michael takes over leadership of his Mafia family. This story is like a puzzle that In order to get the final picture you must find all of the pieces and correctly put them together. Once again Jack Calihan vividly portrays the emotions of these characters. He gives Michael a deep sexy dominant voice. He is a voice artist and an entertaining storyteller. I highly recommend this Audible book.

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.

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.
