Publisher's Summary

Ryan Church and Jill Paxon enjoyed their life as Master and submissive until the day Ryan's entire world crumbled. No longer able to fulfill his end of the contract, Ryan did what he thought was best for Jill. He let her go.

Eighteen months later, Ryan is working for Ian Taggart as the Dom in Residence at the elite BDSM club Sanctum when his former submissive walks through the door looking for a job. Jill has changed, but his desire for her is still insatiable. Jill, shattered by his past rejection, can't trust Ryan, but she needs the job. Back in the community where she once felt safe and secure, she longs for the life she lost and the man she loved.

Ryan is presented with an opportunity to restore his wealth and name, but it could cost him his last chance at rebuilding a life with the woman he loves. When the secrets Jill has carefully hidden from Ryan are exposed, a terrible twist of fate might take her out of his life forever.

Stubborn Love

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

This was a great 2 hour tale about the resident Dom an his lady love. Insecurities, fears of love and loss all swirl together in this love story of regret, heartache and second chances. The hero saves the heroine and heroine saves the hero. Absolutely love the depiction of strength in submission and love in dominance.

Good quick listen

Would you try another book from Lexi Blake and/or Ryan West?

I like the series, but I think a full book is much better

If you’ve listened to books by Lexi Blake before, how does this one compare?

Too short to really develop the story

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Ryan West did a good job

Did Sanctum inspire you to do anything?

Much Less Superfluous Dialogue

I am really liking these shorter books in the series. They give you just enough to keep wanting more. I always enjoy the narration Ryan West provides. I would rate this one at 3.5 stars.

Jill was not my favorite in this book because she took no responsibility for the initial break up from Ryan. When I found out what happened, my first thought was that she must have wanted out. I couldn't understand why she would just go along with the situation and never question it. Not even after she got over the initial shock.

Ryan was no Prince in the situation. His intentions may have been good, but he was stupid too. I was surprised that Jill wanted to lay total responsibility at Ryan's feet. They managed to work it out and reach their HEA.

This was a very short listen, only 2 hrs and 45 min. Although it was shorter, I was fully engrossed in the story and felt no need to fast forward to get past the superfluous dialogue in the longer books.

Nothing major but a HEA!

First of all, what do you expect under 3 hours?? Don't expect any drama, guns or chases. This is a simple reunion with an Ex... well, reuniting with Ex's is normally not simple... so it does take more than a couple of hours. ;) Sweet listen. Enjoy!

Not Sure About this One

I have listened to the other books and thought okay, but this one just did not interest me. Can't put my finger on why. I think I need to listen to some different series before this one interests me again. Also tired of the same story every time.

Wow

Just loved this novella showing how Ryan and Jillian got together. He thought he was doing the right thing and she didn’t speak up. Lucky they got a second chance.
Narration was absolutely brilliant.
