Everyone has their limits. Mine? It’s one that should have never been crossed. Now thanks to my ex-boyfriend, all of Hollywood thinks the only way I get my roles is by way of the “casting couch.” You can imagine how my auditions go these days. This town has enough real scandals without him adding fake ones to the mix. But I have a plan. And it was going so well… until Jude Fisher came along.
When my ex-wife sold the footage of herself cheating on me with another man, I was done. With scandal, with her, with all the fakeness this industry thrives on. Finding her as the only actress up for co-lead in my new movie was the last thing I needed. Then Marlena Taylor auditioned, and I found everything I need. A gifted actress, a natural in and out of character… and a woman I can’t resist.
All she’s missing is knowledge about the lifestyle—my lifestyle.
I’m more than happy to tutor her—to show her the ropes, if you will. I’ll teach her everything about the games. The rules. The dynamic.
I’ll teach her everything, but I refuse to become intimate. That’s my hard limit.
But we’re quickly finding out that there’s no limit to what’s between us.
Review: Callback = Learning To Trust, Hard Limits & Love
Callback is a sweet and sexy must read. It features Marlena and Jude. They both are trying to move beyond the past and learn to trust again. They have been hurt and embarrassed by their past relationships.
Marlena Taylor is a talented actress, who is looking for work. Unfortunately for her, Marly’s ex-boyfriend has caused a scandal and lot problems. Marly is struggling to have Hollywood and people in the industry to take her as a serious actress. She goes on an audition and meets Jude Fisher. Marly doesn’t know much about the dominate / submissive lifestyle. Marly hopes that she gets a callback for the part.
Jude Fisher is a sexy actor. He is working on a new project. They are looking for an actress to be Jude’s co-star in a upcoming movie. Jude’s ex-wife auditions for the role. He doesn’t want her for a co-star especially after the scandal she caused him. It is a movie that features the BDSM lifestyle. Jude is very comfortable and familiar with the lifestyle. He is willing to help Marlena out with understanding the BDSM lifestyle. Both Jude and Marlena have their limits (hard limits).
Callback is a magnificent and well written story. Jude and Marly have incredible chemistry and passion. I adored that the characters had to learn to trust each other in order to find happiness. This is my first book by Katana Collins. I looking forward to read more by this author. Callback has steamy scenes, interesting characters, romance and some bdsm. I highly recommend this story.

I volunteered for this arc. This is my honest opinion. I purchased the book to support the author.
I swallowed, my stomach tight and crossed my legs to relieve the ache at the apex of my thighs. Then, I placed the other half of the caramel in my mouth, sucking the melted chocolate from my thumb, rolling my tongue over the tip of my finger, imagining it was the tip of Jude’s cock. As the caramel dripped down my throat, thick and creamy, my mind exploded with imagery of Jude and caramel drizzled on various parts of his body. A moan escaped from somewhere low in my throat. The guttural sound unlike any noise I’d heard myself make in the past and my eyes shot open. Did anyone hear that? My face burned and I scanned the room, looking for anyone who might be watching me; laughing at me. No one looked my direction. Most bodies were still writhing on the dance floor. Or at the bar ordering. Omar was just to the side of the dance floor, facing the opposite wall talking on his phone. What is wrong with me? This was a chocolate covered caramel for God’s sake. Not a vibrator. Not porn. Not a sexy romance novel…. One single piece of candy and I was so damned hot, I was considering rushing home to have a little quality time with my battery-operated boyfriend. My gaze settled back onto the nearly full box of caramels beside the peonies. I wanted another. Wanted more of what I’d just had. But Jude had specifically said only one more for tonight. Heat curled around my spine and I clutched my hands together. If I was a submissive, following this rule would be part of what made it sexy. And if I was being completely honest with myself, it was sexy.
Meet Katana Collins:
When Katana Collins was younger and stole her mother’s Harlequins to read beneath the covers with a flashlight, she wanted to read about the tough as nails heroine. The perfectly imperfect girl with quirks and attitude and sass. And the anti-heroes who were anything but “Prince Charming.” Forget the knight on a white horse… she wanted the bad boy on a motorcycle. So, now, she writes those romance novels she craved to see on the shelves all those years ago—the sassy heroines. The badass heroes. Since penning her first romance novel back in 2012, she is now an international author with 15 published books and counting. She lives in Portland, Maine, with an ever-growing brood of rescue animals: a kind of mean cat, a really doofy lab, a very mellow chihuahua, and a very not mellow cairn terrier puppy… oh yeah, there’s a husband somewhere in that mix, too. She can usually be found hunched over her laptop in a cafe, guzzling gallons of coffee, and wearing fabulous (albeit sometimes impractical) shoes.
