Summary

He's a big, angry former Marine, and I'm going to be sore when he's done with me.

Hawk Travers is not a man to be trifled with. I learned that lesson in the hardest way possible, first with a painful, humiliating public spanking and then much more shamefully in private.

She came looking for trouble. She got a taste of my belt instead.

Bryce Myers pushed me too far and she ended up with her bottom welted. But as satisfying as it is to hear this feisty little reporter scream my name as I put her in her place, I get the feeling she isn't going to stop snooping around no matter how well-used and sore I leave her cute backside.

She's gotten herself in way over her head, but she's mine now, and I protect what's mine.

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

I need more...

Oh these characters are fantastic. I want more from them. They have so much love for each other. My heart almost broke listening to this book. The amazing combination of Piper’s words and Thomas’s voice is a winner. I highly recommend.

Awful

This was one of those books where the narrator completely ruined the book for me. Granted, it wasn't the best book I had ever read but the narrator's attempt at a female voice was like breathy nails on a blackboard. Due to this, I couldn't finish the book.

better than expected

i'm not gonna lie, i was not fond of the 1st scene (the public spanking punishment), but once passed that, the book starred being very interesting. not referring to the steamy scenes (which are plenty), but talking about the mystery and the other parts of the story too. Thomas once more did a great job, he is the man with 100 voices and it's unthinkable how easily he switches from one to the other. absolutely brilliant. i didn't think i would (because i am not much into hardcore romances), but i really enojoyed this book. i received a free copy of this audiobook and I am voluntarily leaving a review.

This is a naughty, naughty book!

When you get a copy of this story, please ensure you are alone when you listen. This is not for the faint hearted or those sitting on a packed train. You will blush! You will need a cold shower! Be warned! Hawk is powerful and dominating but this woman gets right under his skin, and he gets right under her clothes. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, you will too.

Steamy suspense

Hawk is a former Marine who's gotten into a bit of trouble at work. His brother-he hasn't been in touch for a while-dies while fighting a fire. He returns to settle some affairs & is repeatedly accosted by a reporter. Bryce is looking for her big break, but also prioritises truth & justice. There is a connection between these two, and it slowly changes from punishment spankings to a lot more. There's a mystery to be solved, and some danger ahead for this couple. I enjoyed Thomas’ narration of Hawk-nailed it! In the beginning of the story, Bryce seemed to be whisper-shouting a lot & for some reason I found this hilarious. As the story progressed & Bryce was a little less outraged, I adjusted to the narration. Overall, good story with a few twists, enjoyed the narration.

Ice Needed HOT HOT

Sorry I just need a minute to cool down. Thomas Locklear has a hot sexy voice that is perfect for this hot book.

Hawk a former marine is now the guardian of niece he didn't even know he had from his estranged brother and contemplating the future of the family ranch. Hawk is not happy when a female journalist starts looking into the events of a fire which led to his brothers death,
There is spanking and some hot scenes..... so if you don't like , don't listen , other wise get a cold cloth and sit back and enjoy this great hot story.

Like hearing a play.

Another amazing audiobook narration by Thomas Locklear. It’s honestly like hearing a play and you can almost picture it in your mind while hearing it play out. Thomas is astounding in how he can fluctuate between characters making each sound distinct. I’m in awe of his performances. This is only my second audiobook that I have heard but I’m a huge fan already!

Hawk starts out as a really guff, battle scarred and I just don’t give a hell kinda guy returning from the field where it appears the Marines are done with him. He’s called home to having lost his brother to a tragedy only to find out there’s more going on then he ever thought possible. And it all starts when he’s confronted by a reporter who tries to find out what mysteries are involved with all the fire deaths happening in this small Montana town. Really enthralling story written by Piper Stone and really sexy hot too!

Definitely worthy of a credit!

I was fortunate enough to have won a code for this audiobook and this is just my opinion.

Hawt or Hawk? This book was fire.

I received this book via a promo code and this is my voluntary review.

This is my first audiobook narrated by Thomas Locklear and it will not be the last, the voice acting here was fantastic.

Thrust back into civilian life and impending fatherhood after he gains guardianship of a darling niece he didn't even know he had, Hawk is mourning the loss of his estranged brother, and contemplating the future of the family ranch. The big, scary former marine is none too pleased when a journalist starts snooping around into the events of a fire which led to his brothers death, the tenacious and infuriating Bryce Myers has caught more than just a story in this investigation, she's been on the receiving end of a harsh spanking from both Hawk's hand, and then his belt. She's gotten herself into more trouble than the attention of the rough rancher, as the threats start coming its clear shes gotten herself in way over her head, but Hawk has decided that her cute little backside is his now, and he protect what's his.

Very enjoyable, I liked this story.

A deliciously wicked romantic suspense!

What happens when one fiesty reporter and a hunky former marine clash? Sparks explode in the best way possible.

No one crosses Hawk Travers and gets away, especially the nosy journalist who just won't stop snooping where she doesn't belong.
Hawk is going to have to teach her a lesson and put her in her place.
She is his property now and he will do with her as he pleases fit.

This follows an intriguing mystery which made the storyline all the more compelling. The chemistry between Hawk and Bryce was scorching and I loved the dynamics between them.

Thomas Locklear performed a flawless audio delivery and made this into an engaging masterpiece.

If you like a deliciously wicked romantic suspense with one bratty reporter and a hunky marine who will make her learn her place, you will love this.

Too far across the line

I really struggled with this one. With the title Hawk: A rough romance, I went into it expecting some good kink. But I didn’t get what I was expecting. For me this one crossed the line. There is nothing sexy about abuse.

Seconds after meeting in the store, Hawk ripped Bryce’s skirt off her to publicly spank the hell out of her, during which he got totally turned on. Not only did no one help as Bryce was stripped of her clothing, and assaulted but several clapped. Who knew that being a journalist means you are fair game to be manhandled.

Hawk went on to beat her like 5 times in 2 days. He is described as 6’5 pure brawny muscle and having +150 lbs on her. But apparently he still needed to beat her with his belt, until his arm was too tired to continue but his cock was hard. After that lovely image, as she struggled to get away from him, he roughly grabbed her bruised bottom and said, “I want you. I will have you. And there’s nothing you can do about it.”

Other statements that made my skin crawl..

You’re responsible for this. Take your medicine like a good little girl.

He issued several brutal hits.

I’ve never wanted a woman this way. You aren’t leaving. Period.

As I was given the book for an honest review I continued on, when I normally would have called it quits. After the first few days of beat downs, the story got good. The mystery of what was going on was gripping and engaging. I even found Hawk to be likable.

I would have loved this book if not for the first few chapters of blatant physical and sexual abuse.

The narration was fabulous. Thomas Locklear did an amazing job reading both povs.

🌻A bit ridiculous, at times but, not a total loss🌻

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻V from Kansas 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

Well, after listening to the opening scene, I wasn’t sure I’d be able to finish this book. In the opening scene, the Hero, who had never met the Heroine before, bared her bottom and spanked her raw. This event took place in a Ranch supply store, full of people. The Heroine didn’t press assault and battery charges and no one stepped in or called the cops. Really? The story got a little better, after that. There was some action, mystery and intrigue. There was also an abduction, after threats of retribution. The narrator had a sexy voice but did struggle performing female voices. Dual or duet narration would have been so much more entertaining.

In conclusion, this book was barely passable; wait for a sale, to purchase this one.

Needs duet narration

The narrator has got a great gravely voice but he’s not so great with female voices. This would have been better if they would have had a female read in her voice.

Admirable narrator, lots of steam, basic plot.

The narrator's growly voice is amazing as Hawk... He happens to do ALL the voices, though, including first person female lead chapters. It was a little weird at first, but once I got used to it, I stopped noticing (most of the time). His Mrs. Garcia voice at the end had me howling, though. Noble effort!

Lots of steam... Not a ton of angst and build up, which I appreciate!

Female lead isn't the typical whiny insecure child bride, she's a strong, intelligent, brave woman. Awesome!!

Marines are NOT soldiers. Marines would never refer to themselves or fellow marines as soldiers. Soldiers are in the army. Marines are marines. The use of Noth terms for a group of former marines gone independent contractors was driving me nuts. Every time they used the word soldier, I was taken out of the scene.

The mystery aspect wasn't nearly as predictable as most stories in this genre.

I wish it would have been a little longer, especially towards the end.

I'm going to check out the next book in the series!

Overall, enjoyable, steamy, quick and fun listening.

Fantastic

I loved the story and at first I didn’t know that the narrator took both male and female roles. He did a great job. I usually prefer the short stories that’s not exceeding 10 hours but with this story I felt it flew away quickly and the storyline jumped fast to quick ending without giving a chance to develop each character. Overall I enjoyed the story maybe because the narrator captivated us with his story telling and the sound effects.

Excellent 1st book!!

The author has created a masterful story of loss, survival, forgiving oneself and finding love. The characters come to life in a very Chilling and compelling storyline. I found this audiobook to be extremely well written and narrated.
The narrator does a amazing job with the characters and the voices of each character. He has a fantastic voice with a deep rich baritone and a sexy way of portraying the rough and tough military men. He also does a great job with female voices. I love listening to him tell a story. This is a fantastic book and I definitely recommend this audiobook!!

Fabulous Series Start!

Hawk is a former Marine, now a military contractor, forced home by the suspicious death of his brother. Bryce is a reporter investigating some suspicious arson deaths. When Bryce pushes Hawk too far, holy hotness Batman, his alpha comes roaring out with a vengeance! No spoilers here! Piper Stone writes a suspenseful story filled with action, intrigue, hot, scorching hot rough love scenes, twists, turns and of course, an ending I did not see coming. This masterpiece is brought to life by the world class narration of Thomas Locklear. Every voice clearly identifiable, recognizable and consistent throughout the entire eight hours of the story! As soon as the culprit spoke in the “reveal” scene, I knew who it was just from the voice! You would swear that this was a full cast production, but you would be wrong ladies and gents. Just one fabulous narrator! If you haven’t already, grab this one! You won’t be sorry. I loved it! There aren’t enough stars in the world!
