Summary

I had a reputation and he had the solution.

I thought I was done with Hollywood.
Done with acting.
Done with scandal.
Done with all the lies this industry thrives on.
Then I met him....
Jude Fisher.
A man who knows what he wants. A man who doesn’t accept no and demands more from me than I know how to give. 

It started out as a way to prepare for the role of a lifetime. But as it gets closer and closer to the audition, I don’t want our scenes to end. 

He makes me want him when I thought I had built an impenetrable wall around my heart. He makes me trust him when I thought there was no one left in our industry to trust. 

But it’s all just an act...right?
It’s all just for the callback.

"Master Jude will leave you breathless.” (Stacey Kennedy, USA Today best-selling author)

An interesting read...

Marlena (Marly) Taylor is fed up with powerful Hollywood people trading acting roles for sexual favors. She walks away from those sleazy producers and directors without the role, but with her head held high. She auditions for the lead in a new movie being produced by a legitimate studio about the BDSM lifestyle. Her inside joke with her 'fiancé' is that BDSM stands for Burritos, Doritos, Snickers, and M&M's. Her 'fiancé' is an action star, and is up for a recurring role, yet is hiding the fact that he is gay, so that he doesn't potentially lose out on the role.

Jude Fisher has been cast as the male lead in the upcoming film, but he's been burned by his ex-wife, who used him to get more notable acting jobs. Marly does well enough in her audition to get a call back, but so does Jude's ex-wife. Marly is woefully unprepared for the role, and Jude decides to help her prepare by teaching her a bit about the lifestyle. He is actually a participant in the lifestyle, and makes himself vulnerable to Marly by sharing this information. He moves her into his 'club' for a week of exposure to the lifestyle and for lessons in trust.

This book will challenge BDSM stereotypes. For example, while Jude is teaching Marly about the lifestyle, he mentions that "sex is the least of BDSM. Yes, it's a component, but anyone can have sex. It's everything leading up to that which is important." He also stresses that, "it's about the power dynamic between two people. It's sexual in nature...but it's not always about sex." "Above all else, BDSM is about trust. Trust and control." As Marly delves deeper into learning about the lifestyle, she learns some very important lessons about trust. The supporting characters are interesting as well, and it seems as if the author has additional projects in work for at least one of these friends.

The narrators do a fantastic job of bringing these two characters to life. The pacing is lively and engaging, and the conflicts for each protagonist are clear. The story may even be responsible for a bit of sleep loss...It was definitely difficult to put down. The production quality is first-rate, and there aren't extraneous noises in the background, or mouth noises as the words are spoken by each narrator.

Absolutely fabulous!!

I have loved every single minute of this well written, totally engrossing, hot and fascinating story, fantastically performed by Maxine Mitchell and Joe Arden. Maxine Mitchell truly captured my complete attention with the depth and versatility of her narration. She breathed life and conviction into Marlena and each character she portrayed. Brilliant!

Loved everything about this!

I don’t know where to start. This was such a great listen! The narrators did an amazing job! And the writing is spectacular! Marly was a great heroine! Strong, but still growing and looking for... something. Jude was also great from the start!

It was an interesting intro to bdsm, and very tastefully done. I think she’s going to ease her readers deeper into the lifestyle through this series. As soon as I finished this book, I ordered book 2 for my kindle. I can’t wait until it comes to audio!

I also searched for more audiobooks written by Katana Collins. Unfortunately there are none. I hope they remedy that soon!

Outstanding Erotic Romance w/ engaging narrators!

I walked into this romance purchasing it solely based off of the great cover. Some covers are horrendous these days so an eye-catching one totally makes me read the blurb to see if It might interest me. When I read it was about actors and BDSM AND IT HAD AN AUDIOBOOK, I had to take a chance on it because those are all things that resonate with me as a reader.

I'll be the first to admit that Marlena at first was super annoying to me. Here's this actress who has the chance to take on this 50 Shades of Grey like role and she's not taking it seriously to immerse herself in this lifestyle to understand the character. She was super sassy and unyielding with her hero Jude. He was this huge actor who was a Dom in the lifestyle who was willing to coach her on being the submissive the role required her to be, but she was so hard at listening. I was so sure I wasn't going to like her at all.

But as the book progressed she fit neatly into the role once she learned that being submissive didn't mean that she wasn't strong and powerful. Jude had some issues in his past that made me humanize him as a Dom and as a person. Doms are always written like they make no mistakes and he's probably one of the most human Doms I've read that owned up to the mistakes he's made with subs in the past. That's what made me love him as a hero and the sacrifice he made for her at the end made my heart melt. I was in awe of the kind of love he wanted. He wanted what his parents had and had made the sacrifices necessary to convince him of that by the stories end.

I hope there are more of these books because I would happily read them! This has been one of the best BDSM books I've read in a while.

A good pick me up when you are a bit down.

First of all, I am not a person who does a lot of reviews... Audible helps me get through my busy work day, so when I find a book that keeps me tuned in, I have to keep it. I have not heard of Katana Collins before but I am now a big fan. Yes there is and dare I say it... sex. And quite a bit of rather interesting sexual scenes that did make you wonder how... or even say ouch! However, the story is wonderful. A heroine who is already very independent and strong who grows into an even stronger character through out the story. She is supported by the type of partner we all wished we had/have, hot, caring, thoughtful and well supportive in his wanting of her to succeed and know, she is in control. Maxine and Joe are by far on my top five narrators. They are amazing at bringing the characters to life. I am looking forward to more from Katana.

A hot hot listen

First for this Author. Also the narrators Joe Arden and Maxine Michelle gave it all its worth they brought the story to life .
In some Parts Maxine was so sarcastic I had to laugh at her lines.

Hero is Jude. Heroine is Marley. We meet both Marley and June in Chapter 2 when they first meet and interact with each other . Marley wants to be a big time actress and Jude is a big time actor with awards .
Marley is going to audition for a part but she gets ansy and her nerves play up on her . She has her cell phone timer set so she won’t be late for an audition.
Jude comes out of the audition room and in one way or another saves Marley but she also saves Jude from a hord of fans
Jude thinks that Marley will be perfect for the role. You ask what the role is. It’s being a submissive. Jude sees the little signs that Marley gives off June has to convince Ash the director that Marley is perfect.
Does Jude land Marley the part. It’s not for shy at heart. Yes it’s a love story but there is spanking screams in a BDSM club

This is a must listen
