I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
WOW WOW WOW! I was so not expecting this. This book was so dang good, I took off work early to finish listening. That bad review that say the narrator was not good... was dead wrong. You can totally tell males from females and none of the characters sound alike. Now you can tell when the narrator recorded it, then went back later and re-recorded a part... but it is such a slight shift in volume, that it doesn't even take away from the story.
I like how this book starts... The prologue, which is like 2 chapters long, is read from Shy's POV. Shy is such a bad-to-the-bone...biker boss! He maintains his total badassness the entire book long. When I say the entire book, the entire. I loved it. This writer stayed so true to her characters.. ALL of the THEM...! I loved it when Shy and his brothers, totally kicked Tab's boss butt. That is what bikers do... Then the scene when Shy is face to face with the guy that murder his parents. See.. this is what I am talking about. THis is how you write a biker story.. Shy was not playing around... he was Chaos through and through... then OMG.. then chapter when the brothers asked for his cut (his colors) OMG!!! OMG!!
Now... Tab or Tabby, so after the prologue, the book is read from Tab's POV, but other characters are POV are read in third person. This is such an interesting way of writing... I loved it. So, Tabby is the princess of the mc, and I love how she got out of the life, without ever really leaving, then her relationship with Shy...so great from beginning to end. But the ultimate angst is when she saw Shy with his girl... OMG! Then when she decides to leave... DUDE! The way Shy comes over and tells her that she is not leaving... I was blushing, gushing and just wrapped all up in it. Sooo Good..
THis is like a beginning to end life story for these two characters. Great ending too. So much action, I never wanted to skipped...just a straight through listen. It is long, really long...but so worth it.
Narration was awesome. I don't usually give 5, unless a book blows me away, and this blew me away. I have been hunting for biker books for the last 2 days.
A buy or credit. Yes Yes...
Well, can you really call Harcos men aliens? IDK! They are just really big humanoid males... but let me tell you! This book GRABBED me at like the first chapter!
Hallie, getting ready to run for her freedom in the Grab, gets collared by a big Harcos warrior or "Sky Warrior", and is then taken aboard the spaceship which orbits Hallie's planet.
The Grab is a run where Harcos men get to keep the women they grab. They have to earn points to enter the grab, by doing missions. The point of the grab is for these Harcos men to be rewarded for their services to the Harcos army, and the earth women they grab become their wife, property or reward (whatever you want to call it.) Harcos men are used to a BDSM type lifestyle so the women they grab are collared. Any woman who takes off the collar or is seen 30 days after they are grabbed can be grabbed by someone else.
It sounds crazy but boy this book was a treat! It was so good, and totally made sense. The action, drama and hot SMEXYNESS made this book an awesome listen!
Narration was great. Shift in character's voices was seamless! Great.
This is worth a credit or sale.. maybe a buy if you just don't have a credit... under 15 bucks...but worth it...
I love Kane "Tack" Allen!!!! Hands down the best Alpha Male from the Dream Man Series... with Hawk bring up a really close second....This book is the best of the series, I think... It was like Mystery Man but a bit better, and that was really hard to do, b/c Mystery Man was really high up there on my badassness meter!
From the open chapter, when Tyra and Tack fought about her job on the steps to the end on the picnic table in the RIDE parking lot.. this book was AWESOME... capitalized!
The way Ashely wrote this book, you can just feel the emotions and testosterone of Kane "Tack" Allen so clearly...
I loved all the drama.... the fights and action and the smexness of Tack Allen.. See I can't stop saying his name!!!
** Sidebar: Since I actually listen to Own the Wind before I listen to this, to get the back-story of Tabby and Shy in full technicolor was awesome... When Tabby talks about when Ty-Ty almost got hit with the bat...well that chapter was sweet.. when Ty-Ty gets stabbed, that part was EMOTIONAL! I love the fact that I now have history on Tabby, Shy, Elliot and Lanie, and Hopper!!! I so can't wait for Fire Inside...** Sidebar over.
I really can't find one bad thing to say about this book... Nothing... It was perfection... hence the 5 stars... So wish I could rate more than 5 stars, which I don't do too often...
Narration was great... same narrator for books 1-3 in the Dream Man series... Actually I kinda wish the narrators would have changed with each book, because all the female characters sound the same from book to book... SO a bit of adjustment is required if you are listening to these book back to back... HOWEVER, I rather have the same narrator instead of 4 bad narrators...so I am satisfied...
This is a must-have in your audiobook collection... Buy it, Credit it or Sale it... anyway you can get it...GET IT!
