Publisher's Summary

Abby Raines is leaving Las Vegas. She's trading the glitter and excess of her hometown for the rolling hills and lush forests of Rapid City, South Dakota. She's taken her first real job, and she's determined to succeed on her own.
Mark Marsten traded the Texas range for the Army Rangers years ago and never looked back. Now he's settled permanently in Rapid City with the remaining members of his Special Forces unit. He thought he had it all - well, almost, anyway. Until a sassy redhead with a sharp tongue and body to die for rolled into town.
Mark knows that he's too much for her long-term, but he can't resist a fling with Rapid City's newest resident. He thought that he knew the game. After all, it's his game. And always his rules. But more and more it feels like Abby is the one holding all the cards.

This listen is headed as Romance Contemporary with not one hint of Erotica mentioned, or the BDSM story that made up 90% of the listen, so I was very surprised that the story rapidly veered in that direction. Now don't get me wrong - I like love stories with heat, kink and sex along with the romance.... but that was the trouble - there was NO romance or passion here to dilute or balance out the kink. It's all about Tex showing and teaching Vegas how to be his Sub in THE most humiliating, degrading and uncomfortable ways.... making her his leashed dog which included taking her out in the garden crawling naked to pee. And don't get me started on the detailed enemas or the sex they had whilst she was having one!!.... just no, no, no. There was absolutely no chemistry... just one 'get on your knees' scenario after another as Vegas was totally dominated by Tex and subjected to his every sexual whim.

I've listened to my share of sub/Dom books before and they've always felt right... loving, giving and reciprocal but this listen totally missed the mark and ventured into the world of dirty and uncomfortable to listen to porn. I listened, I sped it up and I fast forwarded - all in the hopes of finding good bits but, as the credits finally rolled, I realized there just weren't ANY anywhere to be had. Dual POV's.

Worth a credit? I thought I'd be listening to a hot biker romance but instead this listen became the verbal enactment of The Dummies Guide Of How To Be A Degraded Submissive.... so no thanks, nuh-uh, no way.... I'd rather stick needles in my eyes than listen to this utter trash again - and it's put me off any further books in this series too.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

I like a good steamy sex book but this was awful.

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

Too much bsdm I am not into that and can handle a little...but please too much. And not interesting or sexy. I listened to one that was awesome but this guy spoke like he was teaching how to plant flowers or fix a toilet. Zzzzzz

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not this author!!! I love biker books and hot dominant alpha men, this one was stupid.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

No, he should be teaching a class not trying to be sexy.

What character would you cut from Tex?

Tex. lol.

Any additional comments?

Buy when it's on sale. Don't use a credit unless you have nothing better to do.
