Publisher's Summary

Journalism graduate student, Kate McDermott, is a good girl who has done everything she can to please her very powerful and domineering father - a Justice on New York's Supreme Court with hopes for political office. When she decides to write an article about BDSM in popular culture, she tells herself it's just research and nothing personal for she can't afford to become the target of gossip or scandal. She hopes that the carefully worded agreement she writes up will keep her relationship with the Dominant she will interview strictly professional. Then 'Master D' - Drake Morgan - walks into the interview and Kate is mortified for not only is he gorgeous, he's the son of her father's best and oldest friend, Drake Morgan, MD, bass player, philanthropist - Dominant. Known as Master 'D' in Manhattan's BDSM Community, Drake must keep the kinky side of his life secret to protect his very successful career as a neurosurgeon. After a heartbreaking divorce, Drake doesn't do girlfriends, he doesn't do sleepovers, and he certainly doesn't do breakfast in bed the morning after. He keeps everything in his well-ordered life separate and under his firm control. Then Kate McDermott crosses his path and screws everything up. Now, nothing is neat and tidy anymore, and no longer under control for Drake is smitten and things are going to get messy. Now, in the weeks before they leave for Africa, Drake takes Kate more deeply into the D/s lifestyle. In the process, the walls between them continue to crumble as they explore each other physically and emotionally and they fall even more deeply in love. But before they can even leave Manhattan, the past returns unexpectedly to challenge their blossoming relationship. Is Kate and Drake's commitment to each other strong enough to stand the test? By the USA Today Bestselling Romance author S. E. Lund, The Commitment is the much-anticipated sequel to The Agreement, Book One of the Unrestrained Series. 18+ only.

I wanted to love it. I just didn't. :( too much life drama

**I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review**

Let me Start by saying that I really enjoyed book 1. I had high expectations for this one, but was left frustrated and somewhat unsatisfied. This book could be summed up with "the battles of life and being in a relationship". It starts out kind of boring, then we get more drama from Kate's "friend" who is such a great friend....not!!! Seriously I was so maddened by Kate's behavior in this book. Who takes this kind of behavior from a friend? Through the whole book Kate makes stupid immature decisions, listening to her friend, hiding things from Drake, etc. I just couldn't stand it. I wanted to smack her! I guess I just have enough drama in my life that a book solely focused on drama just irritates me. Not sure where the BDSM fits in, there was verrrrrry little BDSM in there. They referenced to it, just didn't really perform it. Supposedly drakes a Dom but we never see him dominate, they just talk about it. I always feel bad leaving negative reviews, but I also think others should be aware. I personally wouldn't have spent a credit on it. :(

Disappointed

Story was not as exciting as the first book. I'd question buying book three if it's written.

Shouting from rooftops

I can't say enough good things about this series and more specifically this book. I have been dying for a continuation of this story and SE Lund is my favorite person in the world right now because she managed to continue the story, while also bringing new elements so it doesn't lose your attention.

And Emma Wilder... Well. She is just the most perfect person for this job. I love her voices and most of all I love how she sounds like she could be the main characters and is just so fitting.

I'm losing all my words because I'm on such a book high. Scoop it up people!!

Female lead got old

I did get tired of Kate’s ‘indecisiveness ‘. It made her look weak not submissive. I like the story line but I was exhausted with her,

LOVE THE DRAMA

Loved the drama - loved the characters .... including dad .... it just makes you root for drake - he makes the BDSM very exciting , but her friend is a nutjob and you just want her to kick that girl to the curb.

Kate💘Morgan Story Continues! Great Audible Listen🎧

This is a great follow-up to “The Agreement” Kate and Morgan’s relationship continues to deepen as they learn more about each other. Their story is well written and well told with lots of drama, twists and bumps in the road that test them and their relationship. Some people of their past show up and cause trouble and Dawn continues to dig deeper to get dirt on Morgan. That girl really gets on my nerve. I enjoyed this story as much as the first, I love where their relationship is going and how hot & steamy it is for them. Thanks for another great story, I am looking forward to the next one in the series.


I listened to the Audible edition, Emma Wilder is a talented narrator, she continues to bring the characters and their story to life. She gives each character their own voice and does a wonderful job projecting their emotions in her performance. Thanks for another great listen🎧

disappointing after book one

I thoroughly enjoyed book one and then book two just didn't have the same feel to it. I felt like this one was a repeat story of another book I've read. I'm glad I got this book for free and didn't have to pay for it.

Lots of Drama

I listened to the first book in this series and ready enjoyed it! I was looking forward to this book but it had so much drama that it actually made it a little difficult for me to listen.

There are some really unreasonable people on this book and it was hard to understand why they were acting the way they did. Some parts just made me mad. I hate when several people in a story keep acting stupid.

I don't want to spoil the story for anyone but his ex-wife was totally out of line. She wanted help but treated him awful after all Drake did for her! So wrong of her to do what she did. If I say anymore I'll give away some important parts!

Kate's supposed "Best Friend" is nothing but trouble. Her lack of respect for Kate is uncalled for. I know she cares for Kate but she is a broken record! So annoying.

On a good note, Kate's relationship with her Dad keeps flourishing.

I really enjoyed this book's conclusion! It actually took me by surprise!

The narrator did a good job bringing the story to life.

An Excellent Continuation in the Series

Any additional comments?

I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Blast. I purchased the first in the series for only $1.99 as an audible upgrade and got the ebook free. I have even purchased additional ebooks in the series since they aren't out on audible yet. This is an excellent story, especially if you enjoyed the Fifty Shades of Grey series. Emma Wilder has done an excellent job narrating this series and brought the characters and story to life. It is heart wrenching, joyful, and lots of anticipation with twists and turns so you never know what will happen next. I am truly enjoying this series and can't wait for rest to be released on audible. The writing is excellent and a joy to read/listen.

More of the same from The Agreement

If you enjoyed The Agreement, it is probable you will enjoy the Commitment also. It's more of the same. Overall I enjoyed reading it, but perhaps it was more of the same from the first book and became a little tedious. I do want to complete the series, but intend to take a break and read something else first.
