Publisher's Summary

"What's a safe call?"
Hope Pendleton isn't ready for the answer. Her best friend, Callie, is into kink...serious kink; the kind that hurts. Hope is young and liberal, so she's cool with it...sort of. It's all just a game, right?
When Callie doesn't come home after a play date, the game gets real. Hope learns Callie's last known play partner is wanted for racketeering and human trafficking, and she faces a desperate dash against time to find her friend. She follows Callie's trail, moving blindly into a world of sexual fantasy and deviance, of chains and floggers, pain and pleasure.
The game becomes a nightmare, and before long, Hope's own life is on the line.
Can she survive to save her friend?
Or will she suffer the same fate?

Love Love Love it!

Erotica isn't my normal genre, although this is more suspense/mystery. This is definitely erotic, but still leaves a bit to the imagination. I loved it! I really don't know much about the BDSM lifestyle, but it seems Patricia Rose does or at least did her research!

This book not only deals with BDSM, but human trafficking as well. Hope's friend Callie is into the BDSM lifestyle. Callie is a sub. She's been talking to a guy online and plans to go on a "play date" with him and asks Hope to be her safe call. When Hope doesn't receive the last scheduled call she starts to worry until she finally is able to reach Callie. Callie mentioned a key work that lets Hope know something is very wrong! It's up to Hope and Agent Eric to find her. Hope has to emerse herself into the BDSM lifestyle to go undercover to find her friend.

Stephanie​ Murphy and Paul Brion do an excellent job with the narration! Each of them take on multiple characters and accents. Both of these narrators are new to me but I enjoyed both and plan to check out more of their work. Stephanie has a very seductive voice for her character and Paul's voice is very confident and commanding.

Patricia Rose is my favorite author! I was first introduced to her work in 2015 with her first book, Iron Mike. Another great book worth checking out! Patricia is one of only 2 authors I'd buy a book without even looking at the description! I love her work.

On a side note, I love Agent Todd Vogel! lol Seems like am awesome guy! Thank you Patricia!

Suspense with a side of BDSM!

I really enjoyed this book for the sensitive story line and the suspense. The writing was great, with the right amount of detail for me. I don't normally listen to books like this (suspense/thriller/mystery) because I am easily bored with too much detail and this book was a perfect balance. I also really could tell that a lot of research went into the BDSM world when writing this book and that is important. This story pulled me in from chapter 1 and I finished in 1 day, I needed to know how it ended.

The characters were strong and bold and I think that was a great combination for this story. Hope started off a skeptic of the BDSM lifestyle but she was ready to do whatever it took to find her missing friend. Eric was a man on a mission and showed right away that he would do anything he needed to get the job done. Together these two had chemistry and a mutual goal. The heat between them is a low simmer in the beginning and turns out to be boiling by the end. The sex scenes were good because they leave a lot to your imagination.

While it wasn't what I was expecting based on the genre it was listed under on Audible (Erotica - Fiction), it was exactly what I wanted it to be. I would say it's more Romantic Suspense because it's mainly about an investigation which takes place in the BDSM community. Erotica to me is the amount of sex & how detailed the sex scenes are. While this book has sex scenes, they are few, short and light on details. If you don't read erotica because you need more story and less sex, don't let the genre sway you, this might be just for you. It's worth the credit IMHO!

I really enjoyed Paul Brion & Stephanie Murphy's narration, they are both new to me but I will be looking for more book they have narrated.
