Publisher's Summary

Rick Winter is tired of playing empty scenes with submissives, only to return home alone. He wants what he sees his friends getting - a real relationship with submissives who love them. Unfortunately, since his move to be closer to his friends and Stronghold, the kink club he goes to, the only woman that's really sparked his interest not only isn't a submissive, she's his neighbor. Since he's always had strict rules for himself about not becoming entangled with women that he can't avoid (just in case things go badly), Rick's doing his best to ignore the distractingly gorgeous and curvy Maria.

Maria Arias is the oldest of four sisters; the middle two are married and her baby-sister just got engaged. That doesn't bother her though, what bothers her are the assumptions everyone else seems to have about how it should bother her. She's just looking for some fun and maybe a few hot nights when she meets her sexy new neighbor, but he's staying aloof - mostly. After a series of mixed-signals, and one very clear warning to stay away from him, this tease is about to find out what happens when she flirts with a Dom who demands more than just a casual affair.

Taming the Tease is the second book in the Stronghold Doms series and contains erotic BDSM content.

Stronghold

It strikes me that there doesn't seem to be a explanation for the stars that are given. So I thought I'd start giving my take on it.
1 horrible no redeeming qualities. So far I've never given a 1.
2 blah but there are redeeming qualities.
3 ok worth reading.
4 great but there's something off.
5 loved it.

So now about this story. This is the first book I've Listened to in this series. I get the feeling that it crosses over to another series as well as being the second in this series. It can be read/listen alone but I'm one of those people who enjoys things in order. Unfortunately I really can't read anymore, as I get debilitating headaches when I read for more than about 15 minutes. That said I can't wait for more of this series, I want to say more about this story but I absolutely hate spoilers, so I won't do it to you by going into details.
The narrator brings the story to life.
Reasons I enjoyed this audio book:
Happily Ever After, Witty, Romantic, Wonderful characters, Page-turner, Great world building, Unpredictable, Original, Easy-to-read/listen, Entertaining, Sexually Action-packed, Steamy, Funny.
Bookshelves/tags:
adult, anal, angst, bdsm, bondage, club, contemporary, dom-sub, favorite, humorous, panty-wetting, romance, series, spanking.
This Audio book was given to me at my request from the publisher, author or narrator and I provided this unbiased voluntary review.

Very enjoyable

The second book in the Stronghold series and this is the story of Rick and Maria.

I really liked Maria, she was a wonderful characters. I loved how comfortable she was with herself and didn’t take any **. Her reaction to Rick’s confession felt real, just like her journey into the lifestyle.

And it was wonderful to see how the other took her in and she found a great circle of friends.

I liked Rick too, but I didn’t want to slap him on the head a few times. Men….

It was a very enjoyable read.

Book 2 of the Stronghold series just gets hotter

The follow up to The Sassy Submissive/ Stronghold, this book is about Rick. First introduced in the Venus School, Golden Angel's first series and showing up in The Sassy Submissive, Rick is now ready to settle down. He's come back home and is ready to put down roots and look for a serious relationship.

Enter Maria. Maria is used to being the care-taker for everyone else. She's the oldest child and still single, something that everyone can't seem to stop pointing out. Maria feels connection to Rick the minute she seets him.

Rick is attracted to Maria but is unsure if Maria will be okay with his needs if he opens up to her. There's lots of false starts, miscommunication and wow! Is the sex hot! But most of all, the characeters are compelling, the story telling is strong and Golden Angel knows how to make readers care not only about the main characters but there is a great set up for the following books in the series.

Be still my heart!

I had already read the ebook. But, wow oh wow, Corrine Bloom, you really brought this book to life. With Golden Angel's words and Corrine's voice this book is sizzling hot! I fell for these characters when I first read the series and it is even better the second time around. Everyone needs to read and listen to this series. I can't wait for the whole series to be on audible. Rick and Maria are such strong characters and it is such fun to watch their love grow. I also like how we can watch all the characters throughout the entire series.

WOW! I'm hooked on the stronghold series!

I purchased the first book in the series by mistake and figured "what the heck" "let me just listen to see how it is" and bam...I'm hooked!! The author brings so much life to the story, makes you feel like these characters are your friends and you're listening to one of them tell their story or secrets to you. Not at all tacky like some of the other books I've listened to in this genre. There is a build up so intense that I find myself saying " can they just get to it already" and then when they do (get to it), I got to hit pause and jump my husband! I just purchased the next book and am so excited to listen that I really didn't want to take a break to write a review but, I felt like I owed it to Golden Angel to show my gratitude! (and I'm sure my husband would be thanking you if he knew what was the reason I keep jumping him!)

Great Listen!

I received this audiobook at my request for an honest review. The narrator Corrine Bloom did a wonderful job with the story and characters. I felt the beginning of the book was a bit slow, but once the story got going... Very Hot! Everyone should listen (or read) this book!

Good story, dreadful narration

Over enunciated, breathy and much too dramatic narration. Couldn't finish it. Stronghold stories have been great to read but this narration made my skin crawl.
