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.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
If you like bondage and sexual submission, you'll like this book. I won't judge those who do, but it's not my cup of tea. I really enjoyed the rest of the series (I've listened to four now and rated the others five stars), but this is the dud. Honestly, I prefer a little wild sex mixed into a good story, but I got bored with the endless kinky bondage. Skip this one, but listen to the rest.
Would you ever listen to anything by Dahlia West again?
Yes absolutely. Just this book wasn't for me.
What about Mason Lloyd’s performance did you like?
Exceptionally captivating reader
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Just a little disappointed, but no biggie.

WARNING BDSM and EXPLICIT LANGUAGE USED...
I'm not into BDSM, however, I did learn that for some it's not about hurting it's about trust.
I have always found some of the explicit words used distasteful, however, in the context of this book they did fit.
I LOVE Mason Lloyd's voice and in these books I have become a fan of his vocal talent.

Felt a little cheated with this book , if your not into listening to BDSM then this is not for you as that whats it is from start to finish. I did not connect with the two main characters at all . I read Hawk out of sequence and I am pleased I did as if i had read this following Shooter not sure i would have continued with series .
Mason does a fine job narrating but would have liked a lot more story behind the BDSM
