Hawk: A Rough Romance Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
He's a big, angry former Marine, and I'm going to be sore when he's done with me.
Hawk Travers is not a man to be trifled with. I learned that lesson in the hardest way possible, first with a painful, humiliating public spanking and then much more shamefully in private.
She came looking for trouble. She got a taste of my belt instead.
Bryce Myers pushed me too far and she ended up with her bottom welted. But as satisfying as it is to hear this feisty little reporter scream my name as I put her in her place, I get the feeling she isn't going to stop snooping around no matter how well-used and sore I leave her cute backside.
She's gotten herself in way over her head, but she's mine now, and I protect what's mine.

First face to face meeting in a store he bends her over pulls her skirt up and starts spanking her? In front of everyone? Nobody steps up to help her when she struggles, instead they all clap and congratulate him.
Their 2nd encounter also includes him spanking her with the added bonus of her struggles turning him on?? Wow. Okay, way to validate rape?
Then when the article comes out, instead of hearing what she has to say he begins beating her, only to later find out she didn't publish the article in the first place.
When she calls him on his bull, saying she's not just a punching bag he somehow turns it around to where he ends with him having a "right" to be angry.
How is this a romance or a loving relationship? Its not. Its abuse and Stockholm Syndrome.
When she begins to talk about how he will be such a loving father... How the H does she know? The only encounters she has had with him have led to spankings and him getting off in any part of her body he can cram himself into.
This is a horrible depiction of a D/s DD/lg relationship and I definitely do not recommend it.
I enjoyed this romantic suspense story. This is the first book in a series and as such, we are introduced to a cast of secondary characters—the other members of the six-man team. I enjoyed the way Ms. Stone created her characters. They are multi-dimensional. She uses literary devices such as flash back, dual person point of view, and dialog to reveal their backstories. I enjoyed the dual point of view approach familiarizes readers with Bryce and Hawk’s past histories. Hawk’s flashbacks allow readers to witness how he deals with his demons. Her descriptive language paints vibrant and realistic scenes that helps with building suspense. Way to go, Ms. Stone!
Hawk publicly disciplines Bryce right over his knee within minutes of meeting her. They don’t know one another. There’s not even an illusion of consent. Some people among the crowd of onlookers vocalizing their approval of the behavior makes it even creepier. At that point it’s not a domestic discipline relationship, which would be fine. It’s technically assault. Bryce is so unlikable, even at the very beginning, that you don’t really care that much. She is so intently focused on her goals, she’ll run roughshod over anyone and everyone to achieve them. You may even think she deserves what she gets, but then you feel bad about also being creepy.
At this point you might be asking yourself, why did she give this book 4 stars then? Well, as you get to know the characters, you develop a much better understanding of why each of them acts and reacts in the way that they do. The plot moves quickly. The consensual passionate scenes are done well. There are some excellent twists and unexpected developments that I really enjoyed. The emotions in the book build and build to a crescendo that might make you need a tissue. There are some very good secondary characters. If you start this book and think shortly into it that it’s not what you expected, hang in there, because it’s really quite good.
