Being the new bassist for Shaft is a dream come true for Ireland Tyler. Sold out stadiums and screaming fans are just bonuses to being able to play music she loves. The only downside is it brings her face to face with a blast from her past and her only regret: Dominick Bradford.

The second in command of security for the band may go by Mack now, but all Ireland sees is the

"The stage isn't gonna rock itself."

It was like coming home, being able to immerse myself in the life and shenanigans of the Shaft family again. I didn't realize how much I missed them until I was back in the fold...sigh.

Ireland is a fabulous addition to the crazy train. She's badass and feisty, exactly what it takes to survive 'Cunter' and life on tour with the highly successful rock band. While they welcome her to the family, she's used to being an 'only child' and has a hard time unders

I so wish I could give this book more than 5 stars, actually I would love to give all of the books in this series more than 5 stars. I'm lucky enough to be able to say I've stalked Cat for a long time and her writing gets better and better. This book is so bittersweet because it's the end of a legendary series but it all comes to a beautiful end with this book. I must say if you haven't read this series you need to especially if you love romance, humor, mystery and everything in between. I am s ...more

Cat Mason is one of my very favorite authors with the #EW hash tag, and there isn't a book that she's written that I haven't absolutely LOVED LOVED LOVED! And Punishing Me is no exception! Ireland Taylor was a shy teenager, who loved Dominick Bradford. But he broke her heart at 17, when he used her and left. Now she's the new bassist for Shaft and loving every minute of living her dream. The downside is the blast from the past who now goes by Mack, and is the second in command of security. It br ...more

By the standards of many, Dominick “Mack” Bradford is doing pretty well for himself. Working on the security team for popular rock band Shaft, and not just crowd control, nope, he's on their personal security detail. Practically living at the band's private compound and overseeing the security of the band's wives and family members while the rest of the band is on tour, but even still he doesn't feel like he's really earned their trust and respect.

Ireland has joined Shaft and just wants to have fun. When she’s bored and alone, she just needs to create a party for herself. Although they can get a bit out of hand. Everyone just needs to chill!

Ireland is the new member to the band. She’s feisty, sarcastic, and doesn’t like to play by the rules. She also has an unforgettable past with a member of the security team, Mack. Mack is relatively new to the band, but has a lasting impact. He does so well with everyone, especially the band kids. He’s a great protector and a huge asset to the band. Shaft is on tour and Mack is home with Rae and the kids. There’s a part of him that wishes he could be with the band on the road, but the stable fam ...more

Punishing Me starts with Ireland, a young musician, being seduced and abandoned by Dominick Bradford. Fast forward a few years and we see Ireland as a successful rock star. However, she’s a bit of a mess, not trusting men but using them quite happily. Then Dominick comes back into her life.

The first two chapters really captivated me, but then the story became awfully confusing. The first two were from Ireland’s point of view, and from the story, I thought that her minder, Jared, woul
I loved it! It was full of everything I have come to expect and love in a Shaft On Tour story and I'm so happy this isn't the end! The story itself, was full of craziness mainly from Hunter and his daughter Jazzie who had some great one liners! As for Mack and Ireland the story was fun, with a lot of build up due to their prior history together but when they finally worked it out, boy was it hot!!!!

This has really made me want to go back and reread the rest of the series, and reminded me of wha
As a reader who's obsessed with rock star romances for the glitzy worlds depicted and the erotically-charged interactions that pull you in and intoxicate you like a drug, I'm always thrilled to find a new addition to the genre on the shelf. Through five previous installments Ms. Mason has crafted a series of larger than life characters brought together with the chaotic rock star world as a backdrop that has flirted with readers and kept them coming back for more.

"This emotional breakdown is twenty five years' worth of loneliness, hurt, heartache, shitty neglectful parents, all mixing with what I feel for Dominick combined into one giant emotional ticking time bomb, and I don't see the waterworks stopping anytime soon."

Welcome aboard the Shaft crazy train where we catch up with our all time favourite band. All the regulars are there and it's business as usual when they roll out to complete the tour. This is Ireland's story, the latest member

This is the 6th book of Cat Mason’s Shaft on Tour Series and the first of the series for me. These are all standalones but each of the couples from previous books play roles, but at no time did I feel lost in the story.

I was given a copy for an honest review. Well, what can I say… I have loved this entire series. I do recommend that all books be read in order. Besides, once you start with the first one, you won’t want to stop.
Ireland is the new bassist for Shaft. She’s come into the band as the only single person and is definitely living up to perceived notion of rockers. Partying, drinking, sex. When her personal security guard quits at the end of the current leg, Ireland is hit with a harsh truth.

Favorite Quotes:

“This is one of those moments the movies and books won’t be telling you about. They don’t tell you about the sharp stings of rejection and betrayal after you have laid your heart bare to someone who only pretended to care about you to get in your pants. Another thing they don’t mention is that, just like your first kiss and first love, you’ll never forget your first heartbreak.”

I started the Shaft on Tour series a few months back, and the characters quickly grew on me. The sixth book, Punishing Me, brought a lot of closure to the series. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing how all of my favorite Shaft characters were doing and reading about how their lives were growing and changing. Admittedly, I went into this one unsure I was going to like Ireland and Mack as a couple. Ireland was painted as being wild and angry in the last book. Mack was quite the man-whore, and the glimpse ...more

I was so excited to read the last book, or possibly the last book, in Cat Mason's Shaft on Tour series & I certainly wasn't disappointed. OMG she had me cracking up to the point that I was getting crazy looks. Punishing Me is a story mostly based on Mack, security for Shaft, and Ireland, the bass player for the band. Mack & Ireland had a past. One that was really good until Mack became a jerk (that's putting it mildly for review purposes. Lol). When they found themselves with the same ba ...more

Perfect end to an AMAZING series! Ireland has an attitude that has been with her since her last encounter with Dominick and men to her are only there to be used and abused one time and one time only. She loves that she is playing her music with Shaft, but hates that she has to come face to face with the one person that she has hated for making her into the cynical person she is today. Dominick thought that time would change how he felt about Ireland, but it hasn't, it only makes his feelings of ...more

This was a great ending to the series. Mack had me wanting to beat the crap out of him for being such a jerk to Ireland in the past. Ireland was always just trying to find some one who would listen to her and cared about her feelings unlike her parents. With Ireland's crazy rebellion from what she has gone through over the years she is put in the watchful eye of Mack which she doesn't like what so ever. Then we have the cute and wild Jasmine the daughter of Hunter. she is always catching you off ...more

This is one of my favorite Rock Stars series. I love the quirky, most of the time over the top characters.
This is Mack and Ireland's second chance at romance story.
Having a very brief fling when they were seventeen, they suddenly find themselves thrown back together when Ireland is hired as the bands new bass player. Causing more problems and publicity nightmares than Hunter ever could dream of. She's a handful. And she can hold a mean grudge. A grudge that is focused solely on Mack. But fuele

When Ireland joined Shaft she comes face to face with the man who broke her heart years before when she was a teenagers. The problem is he’s the security for the band and she has to work with him despite the attraction and that she’s vowed never to get involved again. Mack knows he hurt Ireland but he also hurt himself at the same time and he’s a changed man now but can he make Irelansd see that ?
