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...
Most "DARK' romances, are not usually all that dark... Well not my kinda of dark. There needs to be a level of violence with a dark romance... If you fall in-love with the H/h who is supposed to be the bad guy, in like chapter 2, well that just defeats the purpose of having a villain right..
Anyway, THIS WAS AWESOMENESS!!! A great DARK romance!!!
Our H is a totally mysterious but likeable A-hole for the things he do to the h... I was totally wrapped in the story the entire book.
It got a bit boring during the middle, but actually now that the book is over... the middle really makes sense...because where the h was being held... there was really nothing to do, but what she was doing...sooooooo...Yeah, no action required... (by golly! I think I just figured that out!)
So after the hospital, the book goes from 0.... nah, more like 35mph to 60 in the blink of an eye. I was literally pressing my ear bobs into my eardrums to make sure I heard this and that... I didn't want to miss anything! The action toward the end was that good...but then... right before the ending, the h... OMG! I just wanted to b*slap her....
Yes, by now you will totally love the H, even though you only know a pinky nail much about him,but STILL.... I felt like the h didn't deserve my perfectly badass villain... She totally broke the ultimate rule!!!
Anyway... I loved the ending, serious little girl butterflies.... Awesome job Anna Zaires... Awesome job...
The smex was just so smexy too... Love me some Alpha Man punishment!!!
Narration was not the greatest...but a far far step up from the Liaison books by Zaires on Audible. I actually wish this narrator could go back and re-narrate the Liaison books, because that series is one of my faves, that was ruined by narration... Rae did a decent job with this... Love the H voice... so smexy!
This is a totally Credit or Sale... I prefer not to buy books over 10 bucks unless its a must have... This was more like a very enjoyable have... a definite re-listen, but not necessarily a must have. Although, one could save a credit for a more enticing listen and just buy this because its not that expensive... still under 15 bucks... This book wasn't enticing like you are ready to beat someone if they disturb you...this was however, highly enjoyable... 2pts for Zaires!!
