Roughneck: A Dark Romance Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
He's rough, he's dirty, and he's not going to be gentle.
When I took a job on an oil rig to escape my scheming stepfather's efforts to set me up with one of his business cronies, I knew I'd be working with rugged men. What I didn't expect is to find myself bent over a desk, my cheeks soaked with tears and my bare thighs wet for a very different reason, as my well-punished bottom is thoroughly used by a stern, infuriatingly sexy roughneck.
Even though I should have known better than to get sassy with a firm-handed cowboy, let alone a tough-as-nails former Marine, there's no denying that learning the hard way was every bit as hot as it was shameful. But a sore, welted backside is just the start of his plans for me, and no matter how much I blush to admit it, I know I'm going to take everything he gives me and beg for more.

I understand this is a fantasy romance but it strained credulity that of ALL places for a person who is prone to childish temper tantrums, out of control emotions, to yelling profanities at fellow workers (for no other reason then to -sound- tough), an oil platform in the ocean seems FRAUGHT with DEADLY potential consequences. SERIOUSLY! And this is where the reader finds (& hears) Summer off the bat. Screaming/yelling profanities at her fellow welders is beyond unprofessional & ludicrist. And again, I understand she's got 'issues' & she's a 'little' & 'bratting', but to reiterate: on an oil platform? REALLY?!
I applaud the author for taking erotic romance readers to a new environment but I truly believe all Summer's proclivities, actions & mouthing off could have been handled differently. For me, Summer most definitely DID NOT come across as tough or can do: she came across as an incredibly out of control & unnecessarily aggressive heroine who was causing dangerous & UNNECESSARY distractions, frustration & anger among people doing a hard & dangerous job far from any type of support or assistance. Not to mention she lied & fudged about her experience: I am still not sure if she took -some- classes in welding or got all her welding info from UTube videos (hmmmm . . . . ).
So all this behavior (or lack thereof), forces Jack Stone (H) to 'handle' Little Miss Trouble in his quarters & over his knee, where she'll end up numerous times the reader suspects. He's Alpha, ex-military, hard, tough & no nonsense (the type of Hero I love) & he's drawn to Summer physically & her need to be disciplined & controlled.
And then, after an intense punishment & erotic session with Jack, she immediately does something in the Mess that just exacerbates division, distraction & unrest among the crew. That's where I stopped.
So, maybe Summer grows up, or calms down with Jack's guidance & discipline, but I'll never know.
Again the author's writing was excellent technically (hence the 4 stars) but the actions of Summer on a oil platform as well as her truly reprehensible, out of control & LOATHESOME (again, to ME) character shot this one down for me. However, I suspect most readers will love this one.

That is not, however, a set up for a menage. One man takes her under his control with D/S, spankings and some daddy dom action in an attempt to keep her from causing dissent among the workers. He is at least partially successful.
I am not sure what to make of this story. The writing is good and the setting is unusual, with lots of men that could support this kind of story in a number of different ways. There is a nefarious plot by the step-father, but it is too nebulous. We don't get enough details soon enough to give us any sense of danger. Instead, we get an unlikable heroine who is acting like a spoiled brat and disrupting the work at the facility with her antics. There are lots of steamy scenes, but they are not enough to make up for the overall frustration with narrative.
The result is a story that I had to struggle to read. If your interest is strictly on the daddy dom theme in an unusual setting, this story will be good for you. But if you want even a little realism and a likable heroine, you might want to find a different read.
