Publisher's Summary

Determined to find the human traffickers preying on Shadowlands' submissives, Master Raoul gets himself invited to a small slave auction. Once informed, the FBI orders him to reject the limited choices so the slavers will invite him to the big auction. To Raoul's shock, one of the slaves is the kidnapped friend of a Shadowlands sub. She has a scarred body...and an unbroken spirit. He can't leave her behind. Ruining the FBI's carefully laid plans, he buys her.

Kimberly's freedom has come at a devastating price: the other women are still slaves. An FBI raid is their only hope for rescue. Desperate to help the Feds locate the big auction, she agrees to pose as Master Raoul's slave. Wearing a collar again is terrifying, but under the powerful dominant's care, Kim starts to heal and then to blossom. This is what she's been drawn to - and fled from - her entire life.

She escaped the slavers who captured her body - can she escape the master who's captured her heart?

Publisher's note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some listeners may find objectionable: anal play, BDSM theme, elements (including/not limited to: bondage, fire play, flogging), and violence.

Story Good, Audio Quality Bad

My only real problem with this recording is the audio mix. The female narrator is so much quieter than the male narrator, and the low frequencies are so heavy in both voices, that the recording is work to listen to.

I'm sure that some audio producer thought this would make it more dramatic, but it's just hard to hear.

Please, please, please remix this, fix the levels so my ears don't switch from booming male voice to whispery, muffled female voice, and I'll happily give it five stars.

Favorite

Probably one if not my most favorite in the series. A lot to understand about the need to give up control especially when society and family praise strength as bring in control. I struggled only with the unbelievability of recovering directly from sexual abuse/trafficking to enter into a fully submissive relationship. That is a little too fictional, I suspect.

You can’t go wrong with a man and a Spanish accent

Master Raoul is so firm and sexy and how he handles Kimberly is astounding. While I know this is a fictional book, Kimberley’s ability to go back into the human trafficking ad a decoy seemed s bit much especially since we’re talking with months of rescue. Since she was having obvious difficulty handling the training situations sometimes, it made her kind of annoying. Raoul is the most patient man I’ve ever seen. He works with Kimberly to help her recover from her kidnapping and rape, but at times her healing seemed too quick and unrealistic.

The story was ok..but I enjoyed the relationship between Raoul and Kimberley no matter how far fetched it may have been.

This is a great story within the series. I had to work through the rape stories since they’re not my favorite, but the book overall was good.

Excellent audio book

For those who enjoy a good romance with an element of excitement this is an excellent book. Although the time frame is obviously condensed to fit the book anyone listening or reading this book can feel the ebbs and flow of the relationship as it grows and changes with the characters. Having both a male and female narrator made the book much more enjoyable to listen to. Highly recommend this one.

Female narrator is a great addition!

Cherise Sinclair's stories and characters are strong and well developed. Having a female narrator is a great addition to an always fabulous performance.

Should have known better....Nonsensical BDSM

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Nothing, this story was nonsense. It is clearly intended for people other than I.

Would you be willing to try another one of Noah Michael Levine and Erin deWard ’s performances?

The performances were fine, the dialogue was silly. "I'm going to push you, and you are going to take it for me....That's my good girl...", "Take this pain for me...." "Do I trust your surrender enough to push your limits as I should..." (there was more but I couldn't hear it over the sound of my retching...)

What character would you cut from To Command and Collar?

I liked the dog. Everyone else can go....

Any additional comments?

Clearly intended for someone other than I, don't listen to this book unless you enjoy silly relationships with weak women (who are purported to be strong because they can surrender all responsibility for their lives to their 'masters'). You also need to be willing to believe in supermen who can read a women's every thought, sadistic bastards who believe causing pain shows their love and yet are riddled with angst that their victims might not 'need' them enough. Nauseating? Revolting? Ridiculous?

Sexy and awesome!

I've been reading this series since I got my first kindle. The audio versions are even better. Levine has done a really good job with this series, and the addition of Erin Deward has brought it to a whole new level. These two have an amazingly hot chemistry, guaranteed to get your 'juices ' flowing! Hot! Hot! Hot!

Very good!

This was a very good listen. The narrators did a great job. Although it did sound like they were chewing gum, ha. And Erin deWard was difficult to hear especially if she was muttering or whispering.

Her best in my mind and I have read all of them!

Would you listen to To Command and Collar again? Why?

I have the book so I read and listen to her work many times over......so that is a definite yes!

What was most disappointing about Cherise Sinclair’s story?

Nothing!!!

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I think when she realizes that even though she is apart from Raoul he still thinks of her and is still trying to protect her. It is so heartwarming. I cannot say more as I do not want to spoil it for you! You will know which part I mean...it's so touching.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes but i had to break it into two...work got in the way!

Any additional comments?

All of her work is really good but this is my favorite. It manages to throw you through so many emotions all at the same time so be prepared to feel angry, disgusted and then hope starts to creep in before it becomes much stronger. There is strength in the main characters and it is such a touching story that it it can only be given 5 full stars on all counts. Also....I have never written a review before but I felt compelled to let you all know how good this story is...be prepared to be put through the mill though...but in a good way!! Happy listening!!One thing I will say is that it may be best for you to read her books in order as they do support each other and it is nice to see familiar characters all the way through.

Fabulous

What a fantastic audio book. A great story taking us on a journey to find love from the depths of pain. Raoul sounds exactly as I imagined and that accent is so sexy. The mix of male and female voices only enhances the experience. Looking forward to more from this talented duo,

loved this story. it's gritty, scary and intense but as always with this author is balanced out with an amazing amount if love support and family (one you chose- or they chose you).
beautiful, sexy, erotic and totally panty melting! the narrator's voice is very sexy and works brilliantly.

great new format brings this story to life

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you're into a little suspense and a little kink, you will love this book. The new format, having a female voice for the female characters really made a difference for me with this book.

Which character – as performed by Noah Michael Levine and Erin deWard – was your favourite?

Kimberly is performed wonderfully by Erin deWard. She gives a great performance, showing the spirit of Kim, her fears and her triumphs.

Any additional comments?

I love Noahs' voice, but he doesn't do it for me with in the female voice department. Love, love, love this new format.
