Publisher's Summary

A sadistic husband left Beth scarred, inside and out. Only at the Shadowlands BDSM club does she feel like a woman. But her fears limit her to Doms who won't overwhelm her--the very ones who cannot arouse her. The Master of the Shadowlands gives her an ultimatum: accept the Dom he assigns or lose her membership. The last thing Beth wants is a ruthless, powerful Dom, but that's just what she gets.

Asked to take on a problem sub, Nolan sees the issue immediately - although truly submissive, the little redhead is too scared to relinquish control and her Doms have let her get away with it. That will change right now.

As Master Nolan takes Beth under command, compelling her submission, she's terrified, but the experienced Dom brings her pleasure, not pain. His only demand is that she never lie to him. Under his capable hands, her body comes alive, and she begins to heal. As he pushes her limits, she learns to trust...and then to love. And she realizes he is beginning to care for her in return.

But now her cruel husband has found her, and Master Nolan discovers she's been lying and lying and lying.

Breaking Free

Loved listening to the story especially when you had two Doms Nolan and Zeke and the way they saved Beth. The narrator's were very clear.

Cringe worthy

This started off well, it deals with how a submissive is adjusting to life after being in an abusive relationship with her husband and Dom. Nolan is trying to make her trust again, they are working on Beth enjoying sex again without pain. Nolan invites her to a play party at his house, at the party they play a game which was focused on the discomfort of each of the submissive and surprised me that Beth was able to trust enough to be shared between the doms, outside her safety zone, the scenes just made me cringe and I couldn't enjoy the story after this.

After the party I half heartedly listened to the rest of the story.

Love this series!! Thrilled to read it again!

This book is one of my favorites in the whole series. Beth and Master Nolan are both a little broken, it is beautiful seeing them heal each other. This is one of those stories that really touches you. There is so much emotion wrapped into the read.

The narrative is mixed, alternating between the two leads POV. It is wonderful getting insight into both their thoughts. They have had to overcome so much, each has a core of inner strength. Nolan is such a gentle giant, I can not resist his type.

The story flows nicely and is a delight to read again. It just remind me how much I love these two. The connection they share is palpable.

The smexy scenes are delicious!! Some yummy club scenes, it is really interesting to peak into that world. The bedroom scenes are uber hot too! I need a cold shower after re-reading all this smexiness!!!

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Noah Michael Levine. who is delicious!!! Oh yeah, he has a yummy gruff tone, with a smexy rumble. Dear Lord, do not listen while in public! You will be blushing from head to toe! TG, no more sound effects!!! He has a great pace that really compliments the story.

I can not wait for the rest of the series to come out in audio!!! I can not wait for yummy Master Cullen and Master Marcus. Two of my favorite Doms!!!!

I love Master Nolan

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would. This is a great audio book and a welcome addition to the Masters of the Shadowlands series.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that Master Nolan was an average looking guy and that he was so sensitive to Beth's needs.

Which scene was your favorite?

The scene were Master Nolan rescues Beth from her abusive husband.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I loved how Beth was so determined to stand on her own two feet. I love how she falls for Master Nolan at Club Shadowlands and how he takes such good care of her. He is so very protective of her at all times.

Any additional comments?

All in all this is a fine addition to the series. Master Nolan is your average looking, hard working guy. Very rough around the edges and totally believable. Beth suffers so much at the hands of her abusive husband but still has a beautiful soul. Theirs is a love story for the ages.

Worth the read and then some!

What did you love best about Breaking Free?

That the plot really had you on the edge at all times with he sex, love and disturbing past.

What did you like best about this story?

That Nolan really put himself out there for Beth in listening to all of her needs understanding what she needed while still being true to himself.

Which scene was your favorite?

Two scenes because they are totally different. For fun I loved the patio scene where the subs had to race while wearing whatever toys their subs gave them with fun punishments if they failed.

The other was when Beth was taken by her husband and found by Nolan and what he did to give her another chance at life without having to live in fear. (did not want to give out too many details for a spoiler).

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I actually listened to all three books in a matter of days. This is my first time listening to a BDSM book and really opened my eyes to a different world. I realize this is fiction, however, we all know these types of lifestyles are out there.

Any additional comments?

Great series will buy more when the come to Audible.

Exactly what I’ve been searching for

This is my favorite of this genre by FAR. The story and the narration was just so perfect from start to finish. The Dom is exactly the kind of Dom I have been searching for, for reading and for real life. I wish this audiobook was never ending 😭

Noah Michael Levine adds something special to an already perfect book

With the books by Cherise Sinclair I get everything I want and need from a BDSM Romance novel: interesting characters, a compelling story, and BDSM scenes that show a profound knowledge from the lifestyle. Noah Michael Levine is a great narrator - or should I say voice actor - and I love how he adds to the characters by giving each of them their own voice.

Scary

Beth’s experiences is scary and I can understand her fears. But in she finally fiends something good even though it’s not easy to see at first. No unnecessary descriptions of surroundings The shadow kittens is starting to form a strong bond and take every stray under their wings, I love that!!! Sizzling chemistry is building to a strong relationship but danger is lurking. This was fun, scary, exiting, romantic and hot. This book is part of a series and I recommend reading in order because of this: I love that I can recognise the previous characters and feel like I know them. I also has the audiobook; the narrators is reading with feelings and has clear pronunciation so I enjoy it very much. 5 stars overall

Good book

Beth has a really dark secret. She gets stuck with Master Nolan. He is to train her to release during a scene. It will be a challenge. It was a good book and I enjoyed the characters. Kyler is the biggest jerk. Like I even hate his name.

I just re-read this book...

I found this book a really difficult read. The communication between everyone was really rocky. I have since forgotten I didn't enjoy this book and have gone on to enjoy the rest of the series. So this is my personal preference I found this book not as enjoyable as the others...
