Publisher's Summary

Let’s liven up our marriage. It’ll be fun.
Then her husband brought two slaves into the house.
And that was the end of that.

Divorce achieved, Valerie is working on her goals.
Friends: has a new one. Fitness: little muscles! Finances: in the black.

Friskiness? Total. Effing. Fail.
So she attends the notorious Shadowlands club’s open house. There, a sadistic Dom—a fellow professor—teaches her that she loves pain with her pleasure. He wants to show her more.

Despite the razor edges of his hard face and the authority in his every word, he’s careful and caring. He listens, and how tempting is that?

But she knows better. Her heart is off-limits.

Retired Special Forces colonel, Ghost has been a widower for long enough.
Although he’s ready to love again, the generous, caring woman he desires has scars from her past. However, he has hard-won skills, enough to show Valerie there can be a new F on her list—fulfillment. 

Life looks good. Until his past surfaces, shattering his new life and the love he’d hoped to win.

Loved it!

I loved Fin (Ghost/ The Colonel) and Val. Cherise could have dragged out the mess at The Shadowlands but didn’t..she could have dragged out the mess between Wrecker and The Shadowlands or Barry and Val, but didn’t..each issue hung out there just long enough to generate enough angst and then resolution.

I loved how Val made a plan to reinvent herself..she made a list of the top goals and slowly tackled each one. It was inspirational.

What I loved the most (see how many times I used the word love 😆) was the reunion of all of the Shadowlands characters..we got reacquainted, received updates and got to interact with all of them as they worked to bring the club back to the way it used to be. There are babies and dogs and of course, new members.

My only meeting between Val and her kids. I was so pissed the way the kids confronted her and the vile things they said..boy, I was spitting mad. The disrespect needed to be handled right then and there in my way of thinking but Val was calmer (and way more mature than me😆)…but in the end it worked out for everyone.

Not only is this now one of my favs (I love them all but some are more special than others)..but now I feel the need for a series re-read.

Great job Cherise.👍

Finally!

It took a while until this audiobook was published, but it was well worth the wait.
I’ve already read the eBook, so the story wasn’t new but Noah Michael Levine and Erin DeWard always manage to add something extra to to already amazing story and characters.
It’s not simple narration, it is voice acting!

Wow!

What can I say? Cherise Sinclair has always been an auto buy for me and when I got interested in audio books, hers were some of the first ones I got. The narrators did such an outstanding job with this story

Read/listened twice

I very much enjoyed this book. This is my second time with the series. I must recommend the books and companion audiobooks. The audiobooks bring the series to life. Great work!

I wish I could give this audiobook more stars!

This book was great. The book told the main story as well as weaving in several others, this kept everything interesting and moving right along. I loved the performances and wish that more authors would put this kind effort into how their stories are read.

Another Shadowlands Hit

I loved this book when I read it for the first time, and now getting to listen to it, I'm reminded just how much I enjoyed it.
I appreciate Cherise including mature couples in her various series.
Also enjoyed the side stories, like Olivia and Natalie's story arch as well.
Can't wait to get to Saxon and his pet play!

Shadow family Growth

I loved hearing about how the Shadowlands family has grown and keeps growing! It really does put a smile on my face.

This story was a fun listen. I really do like seeing how there is growth on both sides. How each of them can lean on each other. It really is great. I also like how there is enough drama but it is not dragged out for very long.

Can’t wait until we have Saxons story, I feel like Master Z has his eyes set on him next. Lol
