Publisher's Summary

Nathaniel West doesn’t lose control.

As the playboy CEO of West Industries, he governs the boardroom during the day; as a strict dominant with exacting rules, he commands the bedroom at night. He never takes on inexperienced submissives, but when Abigail King’s application comes across his desk, he breaks his own restrictions and decides to test her limits.

Abby’s combination of innocence and willingness is intoxicating, and Nathaniel is soon determined to collar her as his own. As long as she follows his orders and surrenders herself fully to him, no one will get hurt.

But when Nathaniel begins falling for Abby on a deeper level, he realizes that the trust must go both ways - and he has secrets which could bring the foundations of their entire relationship crashing down....

Oh Nathaniel....blushing over here...

This book is Nathaniel POV and let me tell you what a POV. You will also find out his past and some steamy stories that made him why and who he is. There are some extra scenes that are not in the first book and I enjoyed them. NW is not as bad as he seemed in book 1. The narrator was good and I think worth a credit. Happy Listening!

Nice insight into Nathaniel

This was a good book. Yes, it's the same story as the first book, however there are differences. You get to hear it from Nathanael's point of view. See how he feels and reacts to the same situations; conversations he has with his friends, etc. Book 1 only gives Abby's side for the most part. The narrator ended up being good. He was very robotic at times but did well at changing his voice for the different characters. Based on the sample provided I almost didn't buy because of his robotic tone but I'm glad I did now.

Disappointed :(

Any additional comments?

Disappointed...I thought I was getting a new book with new stories. This is just a recollection of events in the first book only in the male characters point of view. Nothing was really different. Big let down for me.

HIS VS. HERS !!!

Would you try another book from Tara Sue Me and/or William Sharpe?

Absolutely. I listened to the first book "Submissive" and most BDSM books are more often than not portrayed by the thoughts of the female submissive; this one seen through the eyes and heard through the thoughts of the Dominant was refreshingly different.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The most interesting, I suppose, was Nathaniel West's feelings for Abigail and his ability to throw his walls of denial up so easily. No least interesting aspects.

What three words best describe William Sharpe’s performance?

Jerky, but promising.

I believe with time his performance will get better; sounded like he just needed to relax a bit. The timbre of his voice for Nathaniel was sexy and a little sultry - I believe that time and experience will definitely perfect both his male and female voices. Audible (or whomever does the matching) please give him more opportunities.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yep, most definitely.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the third installment; hope that TSM's books/series continue to show up (in order) on Audible.

Really not fond of the actor's voice

I enjoyed the series in written form very much, but the actor's voice was too flat. I got bored quickly listening to him and as a result did not finish this.

Disappointing

2 hours into this I realized I was listening to the same story as the submissive. I am not finding Nathaniel's POV to be that enlightening. I was tempted to skip the rest and go right to the third book but decided to stick with it in hopes it will be worth it.

The narrator made the book extremely boring.



I really enjoyed the first two books, The Submissive and The Training. I must say this book could have been as enjoyable but the narrator was so boring, so dry and he talked so slow. Too bad because I really was looking forward to hearing Mr. West point of view. I couldn't finish it.

New Narrator Needed

Love the sexy story line bit the narrator took most of the enjoyment away. Very dull and monotone.

Tantalizing, edgy, heartwarming and romantic.<br />

This is such a great book series. I just can't get enough of Abigail and Nathaniel.
