😍 Love this kinky cowboy

The Cowboys Secret was everything I wanted, and everything I didn’t know I wanted and needed all wrapped up in a heartfelt, but very sexy package. (Speaking of “package “…. WOWZA! ;)
I’ve always enjoyed Red’s character, Brad “Master Anderson “ in her previous books. Was so happy to finally get to know what made this BDSM DOM the man he is today. His backstory Red writes with all her heart, passion, and that wonderfully creative brain of hers.
Master Anderson’s story is all about family. He’s 100% family man first and foremost! Either his family (Mom, Dad, little sisters) back at their ranch in Colorado, or his family he created in college in LA. with his friends and fellow Doms, Thane and Durov. I was so deeply moved with the lengths Brad would go to help keep his family’s ranch from going under, and also maintaining being there for his friends in their own major crises. I cried so hard with Durov and him in one particular chapter… so touching! My heart swelled so many times. We also see him broaden his Dom side and treated to some seriously sexy as sin scenes with his famous BDSM skills with his bullwhip. HOT AS HELL! I really enjoyed getting to know the new Dom, Dominus, that becomes a mentor of sorts to Brad. Such a touching story. Brads friendship with him was fun to hear, and loved the relationship this man had with his many devoted Subs.
Connor Crais did such an exceptional job with his narration. His extreme laid back, fun loving, upbeat portrayal of Brad was pure perfection. But…. when he was doing “Master Anderson “ … just YUM, deliciously sexy! Such a commanding performance. Great job sir, very sexy and hot indeed! I loved his accents he did for both Durov and Dominus. I think I might have liked these the best.. ;)
This book was all I love about Reds books! Good dirty/filthy fun, great emotional range. I would love my own Brad Anderson of my own please and thank you. He’s the total package to me.
I cannot wait to see where his “secret” takes him and his family and friends! I know Red will not disappoint! Love ya Red!!

A Beautifully Well Written Story

I have read all of Red Phoenix's Books and this book like all the others does not disappoint! You grow to love and learn so much about each of these characters, they become people you laugh with, cry with, endure their failures and successes. This is truly a beautiful addition and look forward to the next!!

Brad's heart is as big as his...yeah that!

Brad is struggling with a few family issues. He’s starting his senior year of college and must make some tough decisions. His family means everything to him, and he’ll do everything in his power to help them. Brad is also working very hard navigating through the BDSM community Durov has introduced him to and embracing all that it offers. He truly wants to be a great Dom, and he’s learning so much from so many.

Brad has been gifted with friendships with so many different men who all leave an indelible mark on the cowboy from Colorado. Although he’d prefer to keep all his troubles to himself, his true friends won’t allow that and show him how much they care. You can certainly see how these friendships have endured. And until she does, he’s going to enjoy everything that comes his way. I love this cowboy so much. He’s not the Sadist that Rytsar is, and not the same Dom as Thane. He wields the hell out of that bullwhip, and he’s such a compassionate Dom. Those cowboy manners are quite endearing.

Of course, we get to catch up with Durov and Thane. I’m really enjoying this deeper delve into the very beginnings of these three Dominants. You forget how young these three are in this series, especially Durov with his very old soul. What an amazing story! And what a secret!

Connor Crais’ narration absolutely nails both Brad and Master Anderson. Two separate personas, but not quite.

Kiss my whip, darlin'


Kiss my whip, darlin'...

All is fair in passion and pain, and Red Phoenix's "The Cowboy's Secret" has its fair share of both. In this backstory book, young Brad Anderson, the kind-hearted cowboy, prankster, and bullwhip master, returns to his Colorado homestead to help save his family's ranch. "The Cowboy's Secret" includes several scenes recycled from Red's other books along with just enough fresh content to keep it interesting. The spirited bullwhip duel in chapter four was the first truly original scene in the book, and Brad doesn't even step foot in Colorado until chapter nine. I enjoyed Brad's interactions with his parents and sisters on the ranch, and his bullwhip action was, as usual, sensational. I am curious to see the future impact of Master Anderson's "secret."

Connor Crais' narration was a bit lethargic for me, but increasing the playback speed to 1.3 was an easy fix for that issue. Overall, he did a good job, but his delivery was often flat and emotionless. His voice didn't fit with how Master Anderson has sounded in my head when eye-reading the preceding books or how his character sounded when performed by other narrators in the previous audiobooks. He did a commendable job giving a variety of characters a distinct voice. He did well with Rytsar, Samantha, Dominus, and many of the other minor characters, but I had a hard time telling which character was speaking in conversations between Brad and Thane, and his interpretation of Marquis Gray missed the mark by a mile.

"The Cowboy's Secret" is perfect if your need a quick and easy listen. The audiobook provides just under 6 hours of listening time (4.5 hours after increasing the playback speed enough to make the sluggish narration tolerable).

I am an incurable Red Phoenix fan, and I've read everything she has written in the Brie's Submission, Rise of the Dominants, and Unleashed series. But, thanks to her recent tendency to reuse material from previous books while incorporating just enough fresh content to make it seem like a new storyline, I have not enjoyed her more recent books as much as I did the first 16 or so books. I get the impression that the author is trying to draw the series out as long as possible by getting just enough words into each book to market it as a novel rather than a novella. After being disappointed by the last few Brie's Submission books, I told myself no more Brie books for me. But I simply can't resist those hot, sexy Doms!

Incredible!!!

I love Red Phoenix and the entire world of Brie. These amazing books that provide so much more insight into the beloved members of Brie's world are such a heartfelt blessing! Master Anderson needed to have this story told. We needed to learn more of what his background was and Red and her muses definitely went above and beyond in giving us that! This book made me fall for Master Anderson even more. Just an incredible book! And oh mercy, Connor Crais just added to the perfection that is Master Anderson!!! Thank you so much Red Phoenix!! ❤❤❤❤

Another incredibly fabulous book by Red Phoenix. There are so many great moments in this book it is hard to pinpoint just one of them. Master Brad Anderson is everything you can possibly want in male perfection.
