Summary

Men like them don't ask. They take.

I thought I understood the risks of going undercover to report on billionaires flaunting their power, but these men didn't send lawyers after me. They're going to deal with me themselves.

Now I'm naked aboard their private plane, my backside already burning from one of their belts, and these three infuriatingly sexy bastards have only just gotten started teaching me my place.

I'm not just going to be punished, shamed, and shared. I'm going to be mastered.

Publisher's Note: Cruel Masters includes spankings and rough, intense sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don't buy this book.

Cruel Masters

This was a new author and narrator for me and,, sadly, both were a little disappointing.
The story, while interesting in some places, had very little world building and depth. There's several flaws in the plot that makes it unbelievable. And if you get a copy of the ebook there's several typos in that as well. I often felt that a good editor would have spotted this and forced a correction because it is so annoying for the reader/ listener.
Also, there was only one narrator, a male, who didn't quite get the female voice, and his voice felt, to me, slightly creepy.
Basically this is a story that relies on to he readers desire to enjoy female degradation and humiliation, and an ability to believe that said degradation could eventually manifest in true love to all three men in a very short space of time, where they get to have an HEA.
Obviously, as you can tell, I was not a keen fan. I have to have a level of believability when investing time in a book and this one fell short for me
I received this book free in return for an honest review.

Masters

The narration of Heath Wakefield has the right amount of hot for this book....

Chase, and Dax are hot alpha males with some issues. Caroline has some issues of her own while being a strong defiant woman. This book has strong discipline scenes throughout the book,
The book is intriguing, hot, steamy but draws you in with suspense.

Full of Suspense

Cruel Masters is a captivating romantic suspense reverse harem with several steamy sex scenes. It held my attention from the beginning until the end. Heath Wakefield did a good job bringing this story to life.

WOW!

Cruel Masters is a wonderfully written Dark Billionaire Romance, hot, raw, intense, heavy on dominance and submission. Piper Stone's characters are as brilliant as her writing; she definitely knows how to capture her audience's attention with an intricate plot. As the story progresses and the plot unfolds, my opinion of the three men changed, from loathsome and deplorable to appealing and even admirable.

Heath Wakefield did an excellent job with the narration. This was my first time listening to him, and I thought he did great. I'm definitely recommending Cruel Masters to those with not so delicate sensibilities.

Brilliant

I really enjoyed this storyline from Piper. It’s non stop action from the very beginning. The leading lady has lots of sass that I absolutely loved. With hot and steamy scenes it’s a great book. A great performance from Heath.

Cruel Masters

Initially I did not care for the three men, who were business partners in Extreme Inc., but that changed for me by the end of the book. They were totally alpha. Loved the reverse harem. Piper Stone is great at her craft writing erotic fiction. Heath Wakefield did a very good job with the narration. I received this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Mystery, RH, Intrigue

The wrong assumption about the three cold as stone, yet gorgeous men of an investment company means Kendra's world is turned upside down. Someone is out to get the guys and their company. Mysterious circumstances of Kendra being in their presence is either coincidence or plotted. Sebastian, Dax and Chase offers Kendra something thrilling and kinky. Where this leads for the four is to be determined.

Heath Wakefield has a raspy and sexy baritone voice. I thoroughly enjoyed having him talk to me via my earbud all evening.

Piper Stone can tell a story1

Piper Stone does the alpha male genre justice in every book she writes. The men are complicated, rough, but protective. The women are strong, feisty, and find they’re very much open to the hot relationship these men offer. In this reverse harem, the three men find they’re are instantly attracted to the undercover female reporter with designs to bring them down. The tables turn quickly, and this new set-up will challenge everything they believe about themselves and each other. Heath Wakefield did an excellent narration, with each character having his and her own distinctive voice. Piper Stone books are my go-to when I need a story that will entertain me start to finish.

Cruel Masters - 5 Stars!

Sebastian, Chase, Dax and Kendra’s story was a little dark and a lot delicious. This is a new narrator for Ms. Stone but I think he fit the book amazingly.

unexpected

By the end of the story strangely enough , my perception of the three men changed 180 degrees. I went from loathe and despise to appreciate , like, and maybe admire. Twists and secrets. I enjoyed it. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job.

Bad narrator!!!

I'm not put off by the storyline, but I can't get past the narrator. His voice does not match the very sexy descriptions of the characters. I couldn't even finish this one. They should have gotten Christian Fox, Sebastian York, Zachary Webber... you get the picture. Will be returning this one.

Narration Was Not For Me

Audio Review
This review is about my thoughts of the audio version. I feel badly about it, but the narration added nothing to this book for me. Even with the different way the characters were voiced (especially the male characters), I felt like the narration was so exaggerated, and over the top. It felt to me like the narrator was trying to apply an extra dimension or element to the characters that they really didn't need. I am glad I read the book first.

Review of the Book
This book was difficult for me to get into at the beginning. I know I was at least a quarter of the way into the book before it started to pick up.

Kendra seemed to have her mind fixed on bringing down the 3 guys and their company, but it felt to me like she really hadn't done as much research as she thought.

I was expecting the spanking, discipline, and BDSM aspect; but, I was not expecting the level of mystery, intrigue, and suspense.

The ending really threw me for a loop as I could not figure out why Kendra was Gabriel's obsession.
