When a museum executive secretary, who barely tolerates men, has a run in with an infamous BDSM Master, Neil Cannon, a man who lives to discipline women, there's little she can do about it. Why?
The Master thinks Charlotte, a.k.a Charlie, is her kink-loving, totally outrageous, and continually stirring-up-trouble twin sister. And after what Charlie just did, he has to keep thinking that. At least until she can find a way to climb out of the huge mess her well-meaning intentions have landed her in. She'll take the punishments the Master intends for her twin. She'll even put up with him and his misogynistic antics if it means she'll be able to unlock the secrets that will save her family. All she has to do is behave like her sister. How hard could it be to emulate a fearless, over-confident, rebellious woman, with highly questionable sexual standards?
Neil's been waiting months for the chance to deal with this audacious sub who's been jacking up the testosterone levels of his vanilla crew whenever her sports car needed maintenance. That's why he made the service call himself. He's confident she won't be yanking his chain, because if she tries he's prepared to yank it right back.
Or so he thought until she turns out to be different than what he expected her to be. She starts pushing buttons he didn't know he had. She's flipping internal switches, lighting things up, creating a whole new level of dominant need he's determined to explore, enjoy, and satisfy.
Unfortunately, before either of them can get a handle on the D/s chemistry exploding between them, she takes off. It's then he discovers that she's invited a part of his past, that he's promised to steer clear of, right to his front door.

I bought both kindle and audible versions of this so that I could swap between the two but I have to admit that the narration of this made it much better for me. They nailed it.
I loved the combined narration rather than a dual pov. It was like listening to it unfold live rather than a fictional story. This pair obviously work well together their voices match quite well just the right amount of emotion and characterisation without going OTT the way some narrators do. I was really impressed.
From Sir with love.
While I really enjoyed this book and have already purchased the follow on from time to time I found myself thinking that I must have missed something because it did appear to jump around a little giving just a teaser then quickly changing scene or subject only to come back to it briefly later on. I realise that with more books in the series you can't give away all of the secrets but there were some things that I felt were still too unresolved for instance with the twins. I'm hoping the next book sheds more light on this.
Q- Would you consider the audio edition of Provoked to be better than the print version?
A- As I haven't read the print version of this book I can't honestly answer this... but I will say that Kai & Wen added something to this narration that I'd never heard before.
Q- What did you like best about this story?
A- The steamy scenes.... they were made EXTRA steamy whilst listening to Kai & Wen... if it wasn't Winter here I would have needed to put out a forest fire!!
Q- Which character – as performed by Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross – was your favorite?
A- I would have to say I FLOVED Neil & Charlie the most.... how could I not??
Q- Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
A- There were a few scenes that moved me... the pool scene, the ocean scene.... actually most of the book did!
Q- Any additional comments?
A- There was just something about the joint narration that kept me glued to my earphones (this wasn't something I could listen to with kids around) even when my ears got a bit sore, I kept listening... Kai & Wen made listening to 'Provoked' HOT, steamy, addictive & I WANT more!!
The narrators bringing the story to life.
Everything, they are great.
Provoked by Riley Murphy was a great book. I love Riley Murphy's books and this one was just as good as the rest. This follows Neil and Charlie on a crazy journey. Neil is a BDSM master who loves disciplining women. Little did her know that when he thought he was disciplining Kat, he was actually disciplining her identical twin sister Charlie. I love reading all of Riley Murphy's books and can't wait to read more by the author.
"Hot Sexy Romance"
Yes! I enjoyed the story line and I enjoyed Kai and Wen narrating it.
The relationship between Charlie and Master Cannon
They bring the story to life with the different voices for each character.
I did laugh and gasp at certain events in the book.
I recommend this book for anyone wanting to listen to a Romantic Suspense.
"A must have for any book lover!!"
The whole book made it enjoyable having the narration added in just made it that much better!
None I have yet to find a book that compares to this one.
The pool scene!
I like that they brought the story to life.
I had very mixed feeling about this. The story was long and did not keep my attention. The audio was very good, but the writing was not drawing me in.
"This is a must have!!"
I would recommend this audible e-book because it is awesome and the narrator's are fantastic.
I loved the whole story! Kia and Wen made this story even better! I love listening to them! I can't wait to listen to more books narrated by Kai and Wen!
The whole book did, but the pool scene and when Neil was trying to break away from Charlie.
"One HOT naration, give me MORE please"
As I haven't read the print version of this book I can't honestly answer this... but I will say that Kai & Wen added something to this narration that I'd never heard before.
The steamy scenes.... they were made EXTRA steamy whilst listening to Kai & Wen... if it wasn't Winter here I would have needed to put out a forest fire!!

"Just the right amount!"
First of all, I LOVED that there was a male and female doing the voices! It is always a bit weird listening to a guy do a girl's voice or the other way around.
The storyline was great, and it was just enough kinky without being creepy. It's a very thin line but the book definitely managed to keep it just within being hot hot hot! Love it!!!
This is not a genre I usually read but I found the story very interesting and provoking The narration was the BEST. I really think that audio is the best way to read this book,
when she was in the pool
EVERYTHING they are so good at this brought the story to life
I wil so listen to more audio from these narrators just can not say enough about them
"Hot, Steamy, Sexy Romance!!!!"
I liked both Neil and Charlie. I love how they both pull each other out of their comfort zones, but still compliment each other.
Kai and Wen do an amazing job with any book they narrate, but my favorite characters were the main couple Neil and Charlie. Kai and Wen do such a great job making sure the main characters are the focal point. Kai and Wen are smoking hot together!
Yes, and I did listen to this book in one sitting.
I absolutely love Riley Murphy's books. She is an amazing writer and communicates with her fans often. I happened upon her books by accident because I loved the narrators, and I'm so glad I found her. I really didn't read too many BDSM books, but Ms. Murphy has me hooked! I can't wait for the next installment in the series.
"Provoked is awesome"
Love BDSM with a plot! This story is well written with a very intriguing plot line. And Kai and Wen do an amazing job with it.
