Publisher's Summary

Stephan has lived the lifestyle of a Dominant for five years. After several rebellious teenage years, it gave him the stability and control he had been seeking after his parent's death. As president of a not-for-profit foundation, he knows what his future holds and what he wants out of life. All that changes when a simple lunch with his college friend and mentor, Daren, leads him to buying a slave.
Thrust into a situation he never thought he'd be in, Stephan can't walk away. He is compelled to help this girl in the only way he knows how. Brianna knows only one thing: she is a slave. She has nothing. She is nothing. Can Stephan help Brianna realize that she is much more than just a Slave?

If you could sum up Slave in three words, what would they be?

Warm, Tender and Trust


What was one of the most memorable moments of Slave?

The Zoo


What does Benjamin Ellis and Susanna Burney bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The emotions, the confusion. the longing


If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

This should not be made into a movie; it would be too hard to portray Brianna’s imprisonment and abuse on screen and the parts of the story would be lost and most of the story is told from her perception and her confused thoughts.


Any additional comments?

Read it and part 2 is out in print already. I can't for the final book.

Stephan and Anna - a story worth listening to.

As with most of the female population I have read FSOG, but I still downloaded this book with some trepidation. I had read the book reviews on Sherri Hayes website and knew that the book didn't contain any graphic BDSM scenes but I wasn't sure that this topic/genre (sex slaves) was one that I really wanted to know about.

Anyway five minutes into the story I found that I was hooked, I really needed to know why this had happened to Brianna (Anna) and how she came to be in a situation that obviously was not of her choosing. As the story progressed I felt so sad for her, she was lost and broken. Her ten months as a sex slave had reduced her to a shell - fragile, empty and with nothing to call her own.

But having said that, as I became more involved in the story I came to a conclusion that surprised even me. I understood why the person best suited to care for her was a Dominant - and this is where we meet the lovely Stephan. I can't say that I have any greater understanding about what attracts people to this lifestyle but that isn't what this book is about. This book is about Stephan and Anna, caring and trust.

I won't go into the story because that is there for you to read but I will say it was worth the listen and because the ending is left hanging I will download the sequel. The narration was fantastic - using both male and female narrators gave the reading more depth and the listener a greater understanding of the emotions building at that time.
