Publisher's Summary

When Skye Madden is caught trespassing at an exclusive ski resort while trying to support herself as a tabloid photographer, she is stunned to discover that her childhood crush, Aidan Hastings, is the head of security. More shocking still, Aidan tells her in no uncertain terms that if she is found snooping around the resort again he'll take her over his knee and give her a spanking she'll never forget.

When her boss sends her back to the same resort a year later on another assignment, Skye can't help but remember Aidan's warning. But a spanking quickly becomes the least of her worries after she gets lost on the mountain. While trying to find her way back, things go from bad to worse when she witnesses a cold-blooded murder, and she is left with no choice but to confess everything to Aidan. Worst of all, it appears that the murder is connected to the Russian mob.

Aidan decides he's taking no chances with his best friend's little sister, a girl he's never been able to forget. As a former special agent, he is more than ready to do whatever is needed to keep her safe, even if that means taking her into hiding in an isolated cabin. But Skye Madden has grown even more stubborn and headstrong than he remembered, and he soon realizes it will take quite a bit more than just a bare-bottom spanking to bring her in line.

Even with her world collapsing around her, Skye wonders how she can let this man - someone who has a place called a "punishment room" in his house - start to claim her heart again. Can she learn to trust her firm protector, or will she take matters into her own hands and put her life in even greater danger?

Publisher's Note: Protective Custody is an erotic novel that includes spankings, sexual scenes, anal play, elements of BDSM, and more. If such material offends you, please don't buy this book.

excellent!

this hot, sexy, steamy book is expertly narrated by a pro. The premise of an uninitiated woman being brought into the BDSM scene by a childhood acquaintance/ crush is tremendously appealing! The author drew me in expertly from page one, and the voice actor conveyed ALL of the emotions well, and realistically. **I was given a copy of this book in exchange for offering an honest and unbiased review**
I was surprised by the professional rendering, expecting typical independent style. For real, this is a standalone well-done audio book.

STOCKHOLM SYNDROME LOVE!!!!

Where does Protective Custody rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Its just ok...really not my kind of story....

Would you recommend Protective Custody to your friends? Why or why not?

Probably not...but I do belong to a group who will eat this story right up...they have been told about it!

What does Philip Alces bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I do like his narrations...he is good!

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

No

Any additional comments?

** i was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

First off, I have no problem with BDSM...I am actually a fan of it, if done correctly....this was not done correctly!

Skye is warned by Aiden not to sneak onto the property he works security for again or she was going to get a spanking...they knew each other fro the past...and had a mutual attraction already. Months later Skye sneaks back on to the resort and witnesses something she shouldn't have, of course she gets caught and Aiden decides he needs to hide her away for her safety....While in hiding he basically takes advantage of her as she begs him not to, spanks her, violates her and dominates her before even introducing her to the rules and expectations of the dom/sub relationship...gets consent from her, or anything else! I am a firm believer that no means no and even if our bodies are aroused, it doesn't mean we are consenting...I feel books like this introduce people to the wrong idea about this lifestyle and can get people in trouble! I don't think I will listen to anymore of this authors books!

A very simple story with a lot of hotness

Not to much happens other than she gets punished over and over again as he molds her into submission. Get ready to get your bottom whacked again and again. The narration is good. Overall, there's not much to the story. If you're looking for really hot scenes then this book is for you.

DNF!!! Cringeworthy

I have almost all of Natasha Knight's books and have listened to them repeatedly. This is one of her earlier novels. She has come a long way since then. I made it to chapter six.... Then I returned it.

Extremely disappointed, this book...

I'm extremely disappointed, her books are usually amazing and have an excellent story line. This one is pitiful. The voice of the man who reads it only makes the story line worse. I've read a lot of her books, this one is definitely a waste of money!

Spankings and punishment

Seemed like they spent two thirds of the book with her doing something to “earn punishment”. And I’m not talking about a bit of spanking to add a bit of kin to it. Caning and paddling, and not a few light licks but blistering her backside till she cried from the pain. Then she was turned on by it. Just not my cup of tea
