Publisher's Summary

I took her because I needed a hostage. I kept her because I wanted her.

Francesca Alessandro was just meant to be collateral, held captive as a warning to her father, but then she tried to fight me. She ended up sore and soaked as I taught her a lesson with my belt and then screaming with every savage climax as I taught her to obey in a much more shameful way.

She's mine now. Mine to keep. Mine to protect. Mine to use as hard and as often as I please.

Publisher's Note: Taken as Collateral is a stand-alone novel which is the second entry in the Mafia Masters series. It includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don't buy this book.

Good story with excellent narration

This was a good addition to the Mafia Masters series. Francesca was only to be held captive until her father could pay a debt. It did not work out that way. I recommend this series if you like dark mafia romance.

Jack Calihan did an outstanding job with the narration. He is an excellent voice actor. I was given this free copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The narrator absolutely ruined this book

I’m usually not super picky when it comes to narrators. If a story is well written I can almost always deal with bad narrators. This time though I just couldn’t. I got about 30 minutes into the story and decided it wasn’t worth my credit. Planning to return ASAP. If you really enjoy books by this author then I would suggest reading it instead.

Good Read

Taken as Collateral (Mafia Masters #2) was a good read by Piper Stone. Michael left the family business and became a movie star. He took Francesca as collateral and a warning to her father. She fought back and he didn’t expect that. I enjoyed reading this book and cant wait to read more by the author.

Excellent story line!

Unlike book #1 in this series, the story line and people were much more believable with an excellent story line in book #2. I'm off to read book 3 of the series and hope for another good read.

Dark Mafia Romance

This is the second book in the Mafia Masters Series. This is a dark mafia romance. Francesca and Michael's story is fast paced and intriguing. Michael is a Dom, commanding, ruthless, and powerful. Francesca, a mafia princess, is sassy, and strong. They share an instant attraction, and a sizzling chemistry. They are perfect together. The storyline is suspenseful. The supporting characters are intriguing. Jack Calihan did a great job with the narration.

Ehhh, just ehhh

I wanted to like this book I liked the concept, but it was very slow moving in some parts and then rapid in other parts. I gave it a try, but I couldn't get into it

Mafia romance at its best

I enjoyed this like I did book one, even better I would say. Primarily cause the story didn't feel as rushed and the end was longer with more detail. MCs are both enjoyable and Michael is just sexy. Can be a trigger for Sexual assault so please know that going in, this is a dark Mafia romance so so expect all hearts and flowers. Jack Calihan kicked ass narrating, his deep voice is perfect for this type of character!

WOW!!

Piper Stone takes us on a twisted dark path with the second instalment in the Mafia Masters series. Taken as Collateral is a splendidly dark mafia romance, that literally sucked me in and submerged me into the story. I loved every minute of it. The characters are well-developed, compelling, and complex, with flaws. The intimate scenes are very well-written with BDSM elements and scorching hot.

Outstanding narration by Jack Calihan. He captured the characters, the searing chemistry, and the intensity found in the pages. I absolutely loved his performance. Overall, this is an engaging story with great characters and outstanding narration. I strongly recommend this audiobook. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Good Story

This was a good story with likeable leads. The story dragged in a couple of places, but had enough twists and turns to keep you listening. Fantastic narration by Jack Calihan.

Yes Sir?

The next Sons of Darkness to fall is Michael Cappalini aka filmstar Kelen Rock. After years of avoiding his obligations as heir, Michael is drawn back into the Mafia world when his father is seriously injured in an assassination attempt.

In an attempt to find and neutralise the threat he kidnaps Mafia Princess Francesca Alessandro. The chemistry between these two antagonists is off the chart from the start and only became hotter the further I got into the book.

Michael has no wish to fall in love and spends as much time punishing his captive as lusting over her. But in the end he will have to put his personal demons to rest if he is going to find his place, keep the peace and protect the woman he has come to care deeply for.

I thoroughly enjoyed this highly addictive dark Mafia Romance with excellent narration as always by Jack.
