I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
What a raw, gritty, rude, crude, dark, crazy, messed up, wild and compelling fatal attraction that spans over 20 years between Deuce and Eva. Then, as you listen, in helpless fascination, you witness the blossoming of a sweet tender passion and the potential for a deep love be heartlessly, heartbreakingly thrown away, corrupted and is poisoned until all potential for a HEA ending slowly withers and dies.
This is not the usual type of love story but a love story that is shocking, scary, sad and painful and it's full of bruised characters from the seedy side of life who get entwined in revenge, twists, sexual blackmail, violence, danger, kidnapping, lies, deceit, murder, rape and sex with bad language, bad attitudes and some bad outcomes.
But what a captivating, thrilling, awesome plot it is with plenty of sub plots which were all expertly described and written then the skilled narration brought the characters, and events, to life so you're absorbed in all the never-ending pain, suffering, heartbreak and loss which leaves you dazed, spun out but grateful that you endured and survived this riveting train wreck of a love story.
Worth a credit? This listen packs a punch, will have you stunned, shocked and gasping for more as you're eagerly drawn in, held as a willing captive until the very last word..... and you LOVED every torturous minute of it - so YES, another creditworthy listen.

Those wishing to learn the alternative misogynistic lifestyle of motorcycle clubs. I hoped for more of a story after the rave reviews.
she is a good smooth reader. Her voice adds to the story, she doesn't try to do too much with the different characters.
I would have asked the author to decide if the 'hero' respects or disrespects women. In many scenes he stands up for them. In many scenes he is the most disgusting pig I've read.
I would have enlarged the story with the affair with the Lawyer and other self destructive relationships like Frankie. More relationship, less sex. This story is all about beauty, and sex.
For a man who takes down people who disrespect women, including his son, the lead character treats the love of his life in the most despicable ways. Consistently. She is the most beautiful doormat. Tired of reading about Beautiful Loyal Doormats.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
I gave this a 4 star review due to the diversity of this book. I haven't come across a love story like this one. I will say it's definately not for everyone. It contain's allot of heartache for Eva and most women wouldn't hold on like her character did. It is interesting and compels you to listen to see what in the world is going to happen next.
I couldn't decide on 3 or 4 stars but decided that the only reason I was giving it 3 was because the incredibly excessive use of "B**ch" It got really annoying for me after a while
I gave it 4 stars because it is an absolute train wreck. It's emotional and a huge web of crazy! And by crazy I mean completely insane shocking, repulsive, crude and completely disturbing. It didn't take me long to finish at all.
not sure if I would recommend this, as it's definitely NOT for everyone. A lot of horrible situation and themes
I am an avid reader, not a professional book reviewer. I gladly offer my opinion of the books I read/listen to.
This book is not a run of the mill MC Novel. This book is the standard by which every MC novel should be written!
This story eventually gets to a HEA .... but only after enduring years of torment, separation, growth and tragedy on both sides. The introduction of Deuce to the little girl who would over the years brighten his world .....Eva is unconventional, but amusing. Sheehan manages to pen a light hearted meeting in the back drop of a dark, hostile world. Both main characters come from the MC world, both having fathers that are Presidents of their respective clubs. Eva understand and embraces club life, Deuce wants to shelter her from that life and through the years they both experience growth, tragedy and forgiveness. Their journey is not for the faint of heart. This story is brutal at times. It was sometimes hard to accept some of the decisions that Eva made and accepted as "normal" and "love", but you are sucked in from the first sentence. Sheehan has a real talent for penning a sentence. Her story and character development stand out beyond all the other main stream MC novels. I highly recommend reading this series if you enjoy reading/listening to stories that go beyond the sexual encounters. The subplots and supporting characters are also engaging! My accolades for this series cannot be expressed highly enough.
It is no secret that Tatiana Sokolov is one of my all time favorite female narrators ...and once again she proves her dramatic talent in this book/series.
This story is worth a credit and most certainly a sale!!
I've listened to a lot of MC romance and this story is by far the best ever!!! It's not the usual happily ever after & true to real life. The narrator was great, as usual. T.S. Narrates many novels and always does a stellar performance.
This book is a must read!!!!
Wow. I re-listened and had forgotten alt of the drama. There is much of it, and not for the faint of heart. Sex, violence, foul language, cheating......that made for a great story that ha no cliff hanger. Loved it even when it had uncomfortable situations.
What an emotional/turbulent listen this was. I definitely enjoyed it, was completely addicted to it, but also felt physically ill a few times. (More from the powerful emotions than from anything physical.) I loved that this book made me laugh out loud, curse out loud, and yell at the characters. More than once, I had a giant lump in my throat and butterflies in my belly. I will def be listening to the next one in the series, but probably after I listen to a light HEA in between.
Not only do I love the love story of Deuce and Foxy, but the narrator, Tatiana Sokolov is fantastic! I just LOVE how she tells the story, the different voices, she makes it so much more interesting! I've listened to this book 3 times. Still love it.
You've read the excerpt warnings about this book. They're all true. If you don't like sex, violence, rape, female degregation, the F bomb, and the list goes on and on. Don't read this book! But if that doesn't bother you, Madeline Sheehan has managed to write a book that I couldn't put down. It was like a train wreck, I knew it was coming, but I had to keep watching. I'm off to read the next one.
