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...
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!
So, I refuse to listen to this at first, because of the bad reviews... Some said you could skip this book and start with book 2, you wouldn't miss much... WRONG!
This book was so dang good. Flint is like my favorite Cyborg now. He was so sophiscated and smexy... Such a dominate romantic! Love it. The smex in the book blew me away.. the tub scene! WHAT!!!
Now that I have listen to this book, after listening to book 2-5... So much of the story makes scene now. Book 2 happens right at the end of this book or rather starts around the same time Flint returns to Garden... then book 3 happens while this book is taking place. And book 4 happens when book 3 is taking place...at the same time. And book 5 begins right where book 4 leaves off.
Yes, all the storys are stand alone...but it makes better sense if you read/listen to them in order...
Great Buy, sale or credit... This on is a keeper... Makes me wanna get me a cyborg!
Narration was great...
