Summary

When I want something, I make it mine. I want her.

Caroline Hargrove thinks she is mine because her father owed me a debt, but that isn't why she is sitting in my car beside me with her bottom sore inside and out. She's wet, well-used, and coming with me whether she likes it or not, because I decided I want her, and I take what I want.

As a senator's daughter, she probably thought no man would dare lay a hand on her, let alone spank her thoroughly and then claim her beautiful body in the most shameful ways possible.

She was wrong. Very, very wrong. She's going to be mastered, and I won't be gentle about it.

Publisher's Note: His as Payment is a stand-alone novel which is the first entry in the Mafia Masters series. It includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don't listen to this audiobook.

An enjoyable experience...

A thoroughly enjoyable story, which kept me entertained from start to finish. Great character building and not a predictable storyline.

Great narration, though I'd be interested to hear the difference in adding a female narrator to the mix.

Dark Mafia Romance

His payment is a marvellously written mafia romance, with dark elements. The plot is rich, suspenseful, gripping, and very hot, captivating me from start to end. The characters are fabulous and engaging. The intimate scenes have the dominance and submission components to them. Jack Calihan literally brings it all to life. He is a very talented narrator with the perfect alpha male voice. With his performance, he sucks you in and wholly immerses you in the story. I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook, and highly recommend it.

Dark and Delicious

This story is a dark and delicious tale about Dominic and Caroline, he's the son of a Mafia Don whilst she's the daughter of a man who wants to run for the presidency of the US. Dominic has the dirt on her father and in return for his silence, he wants Caroline and not just for a short time.

Obviously, she's devastated by her father's agreement to this she and her father have never been close but she always believed that he would never hurt her. Dominic is a Dominant man who subjects her to punishments just because he can but over time their relationship shifts, love blossoms and the terms of their relationship is forever changed.

The storyline has lots of intrigue, action, drama and betrayal as well as lots of sexy scenes which include spankings so if this offends you then don't listen. The writing style is good, the character development is excellent and the chemistry is hot and palpable.

The narration by Jack Calihan is very well done and certainly added to my enjoyment of this book.

Not the best

This could have been so much more if more attention paid to the story rather than the bedroom. How many spankings do you need to listen to. Sorry not the best I have listened to.

Mafia DOM!

Mafia Masters follow the 'Sons of Darkness' who against the odds have formed a 'Band of Brothers' to aid each other when trouble calls. Each story features a different Mafia Prince and the women they fall in love with. The first 'Son' to fall is Dominick Lugiano. Dom is a hard man and he always gets what he wants and he wants Caroline Hargrove in payment for the sins of her Senator father. Caroline is as disobedient as she is beautiful and Dom craves to teach her, tame her and keep her but there are evil forces at work determined to destroy all he has worked for. It will take more than one Mafia Prince to take down his enemy but the question is, can he trust the other 'Sons'. The wrong decision could cost him everything and everyone he cares for, including Caroline. I thoroughly recommend this hot and steamy Dark Mafia Romance with Jack Calihans usual excellent performance bringing all the characters to life.

Really interesting

This was a really good story. It wasn’t as dark as some of the mafia type books I have listened to but it was very well written and the characters definitely convinced me to continue can’t wait to jump into the next book

  • Overall
    3 out of 5 stars

It was average as far as dark mafia romance goes..

I listened to and read better, it didn't captivate me like others, finishing was more like a chore.. a tick in the box as I hate to not finish. I may listen or read others in the future, but there's to many other good books out there to venture into any more of the series.. maybe later.. maybe.

Dominick, the Sexy A-hole

Dominick, dominant mafia boss, could be a sexy a-hole. Carolyn, a senator’s daughter who was on the road to running for president, was much too submissive. Dominick decided he wanted Carolyn and made a deal with her father to take her—and he did in every way possible. He would also punish her. It is a shame she didn’t have a bat to knock him in the head sometimes. Even if he didn’t make a deal with her father, he would have still taken her because he always took what he wanted. Carolyn could not stay angry with him because as soon as he touched her, she was wet and willing. After a while, she didn’t want to get away from him. This book contains a lot of twists and turns and, of course, there is the mafia.

Jack Calihan is an awesome narrator! He nailed Dominick with his dominant ways. Jack is so good at narrating these types of books. He is also pretty good with female voices. You can always tell who is speaking. I don’t think I would have enjoyed this book as much if it weren’t for Jack’s narration.

Thoroughly enjoyed!

My secret addiction, alpha bossy males who don't hesitate to soften up when their heart gets involved. A solid entry into the mafia trope, elevated to a cut above by an involving story, and a narrator with a perfect voice for this.

Dark and erotic mafia story

An erotic and dark mafia romance with a dominant mafia boss choosing to trade a debt for the woman he obsessed over. While the politics and mafia business take an intrinsic backseat to dominating sex, the story is easy to follow. The concluding events seemed a bit rushed and not fully explained, it was a captivating story.


Jack Calihan has an extremely sexy growly voice and portrays the male characters very well. His female voice is good however the female internal monologues frequently slip into the gruff male version making parts a bit confusing as to whom is talking.

I received a free audible code through a Facebook group giveaway and am providing my honest review voluntarily.

WOW!

I asked to receive this free review audible book and wrote this unbiased review. Piper Stone has written a Mafia story that is filled with numerous twists and turns. This book will have you guessing whom you can trust. She has written about complex characters and an intriguing storyline. Dominick is a Dom that leads a dangerous life and is used to getting his way. Caroline is a submissive that lacks love in her life. This will be a turbulent relationship at first. They will uncover many secrets and lies as the story progresses. This story will keep you on the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen next.

Jack Calihan's deep gravelly voice is perfect for Dominick. He also gives distinctive voices to the other characters. Jack's voice captures and holds your attention throughout the entire story. He does an outstanding job of portraying the emotions, desires, and personalities of these characters. Jack is a voice artist who is a pleasure to listen to. If you enjoy dark Mafia books, I highly recommend this Audible book.

Terrific Story & Narration🎧 Dark & Twisted🔥Romance


I enjoyed this dark and twisted “Mafia” romance, it is well written with interesting storylines that captivated me from start to end. The characters are complex and well developed, Caroline Hargrove is the daughter of a Senator who is looking to advance his political career, unfortunately he has his hands in places they do not belong, including owing money to the mob. Dominick Lugiano is the son of a mob boss and is next in line to take over the empire. The Senator owes his family and Dominick knows tells him how he is going to pay his debt. Caroline Hargrove is far from being Daddy’s little girl, she is aware that he is all about his politics, so it is no surprise when she finds out she is being used as a pawn in a play between him and the mob. Dominick, an alpha Dom, wants Caroline’s complete submission and has plans to break her which turns out to be a challenge. Caroline refuses to let him break her, she is broken enough. I loved the chemistry between these two. Also loved how everything plays out, the story is well plotted with plenty of drama, angst, great twists and turns, some thrilling and suspenseful moments, some hot romance all leading to something Dominick never thought he could do, love. Piper Stone, thank you for this great story, the emotional rollercoaster ride.

Jack Calihan is a fantastic narrator and voice artist. He brings the characters to life giving each their own voice and personality as well as heart and attitude. He does great job portraying the characters and projecting their emotions and passion into his performance. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another amazing listen🎧

Very good

Both author Piper Stone and narrator Jack Calihan are new to me.

Normally mafia stories are not a genre I read but I enjoyed this dark romance about Dominick Lugiano and the woman who has captured his attention, Caroline Hargrove.

Jack Calihan’s voice was suited to this story with his deep gravelly voice I could easily imagine Dom in my mind as I listened.

Dom is definitely an alpha and is determined to dominate and gain Caroline’s surrender. I liked the dynamics between these two and found the story to be well written and entertaining.

AMAZING

The narrator totally transported me with his voice, accents, and expressions. I was in the moment the whole time I listened. This couple went through h*ll and back to survive and thrive together, and I enjoyed sharing their journey. Suspenseful, gripping, and hot. Glad I found this author thru this amazing narrator. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this story and am giving an honest review.
