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.
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.
Always ready for my next smutty story.
I am trying to figure out why I don't read more MC books because it is clearly my thing!
This book had me laughing out loud, yelling comments at the characters and searching for reasons to sneak off to listen to more of this story!
Really loved how the author made this story, what some might call taboo, but was still able to make us root for this love to work. There were certainly some unfortunate events that occurred and they made me sad and sometimes afraid for the characters but the author still managed to make everything beautiful as part of their story. Well as beautiful as a MC story can be :).
The narrator was perfect. She made definite choices with her voices and unlike the past few books I've listened to, I had NO problem telling the males and the females apart. I will not only be following this author I will also be following this narrator!
Really great read and I hope the rest are just as "interactive" for me.
The most rough and real book i've ever read.
So crazy you do not know which way is up or down. Liked the way she described each character, Eva is strong and gorgeous, Douce is raw, crazy and unstable but lost his mind and heart to a little girl and loved her ever since.
Beautiful, strong, f* up story...
Forbidden, Sexy, and HOT!!
The way it wasn't a typical romance story. There was pain, anger, sorrow, and a whole lot of sexual heat included.
My favorite scene was when Deuce finally came to claim Eva as his old lady.
Isn't like any other romance story I have ever read. Move over 50 shades of Greg. Madeline Sheehan is my new favorite author. I couldn't stop listening to it and was instantly addicted.
