Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
I really wanted to hate this book, but in the end I actually loved it. I wonder what that says about me as a reader/listener? The subject matter of this book was seriously disturbing and made me extremely uncomfortable. There were many times I had to put this one down and could not revisit it for several days. There is abduction, beatings, rape and overall humiliation of another human being. How could this possibly be a love story? Perhaps I’m de-sensitized or nothing really shocks me anymore. No matter the reason, the author really pulls this one off. She manages to make the reader care for the hero and heroine. And despite all the horrible things Caleb does to Livvie, I still wanted them to end up together.
This was a very dark listen but it was well worth my credit.
Another brilliant listen by Kristen Ashley. I love her biker bad boys and this one was at the top of my list with alpha male hotness. In this book we have the biker princess Tabby (daughter of the MC’s president) and swoon-worthy Shy (the biker club brother). They’ve both been secretly in love with each for some time but tragedy brings them together in a most unexpected way. This of course leads to lots of steamy sex and a HEA. I loved seeing characters from previous books; Tack, Tyra, Tex, Mitch, Hawk, Lee and the very fabulous Elvira! I love the Chaos MC! Come on Audible, bring us Motorcycle Man please!
Even though this is not her first book, it could still be read as a stand-alone. I will warn you that Kristen Ashley has a very unique writing style and not all appreciate her stiff dialogue or run on sentences. I for one love it.
5 star listen!
Good, but not great...
Part two of The Professional picks up right where it left off in part one. (the very steamy sauna) As much as I enjoyed the beginning part of this book, it suddenly took a weird turn. I understand this is erotica, but it went from an exciting Russian Mafia story to a Fifty Shades of Grey BDSM plot. I don’t mind all the sex, but I just didn’t like the way it was written. Some of it made me cringe and laugh. It was a little over-the-top and unexpected for Kresley Cole. In spite of all of that, I still enjoyed most of the story and thought it was a 4 star listen. I hope the final installment is better and that this one just suffered from “middle book syndrome”.
