WOW! This is why I love audible! I never would have bothered with this book (due to the price and length) but thanks to the reviewers I follow I took a chance! THANK YOU fellow listeners....this one was perfect! And so worth the credit! I loved it so much I already downloaded the 2nd and pre-ordered the 3rd.
So I was really hoping I would enjoy listening to this book more than I actually did. I thought the concept of this story was really interesting and different - a Post-Apocalyptic MC club. Cool! Unfortunately, it just fell flat. There wasn't enough backstory to make me care about the characters and the multiple point-of-views were confusing and very distracting. The story wasn't all that original either. There were so many blatant rip-offs from Sons of Anarchy that I could actually see the scenes from the TV show while I listened.
If you are looking for a good MC series I would suggest a Kristen Ashley or Madeline Sheehan book.
*Sigh* I can’t believe this is the end of the Beautiful Series. Although this was a short story, it was a perfect and satisfying ending. It all came back full circle to Bennett and Chloe. This was a funny, HOT, and sexy way to end the series. I enjoyed revisiting favorite characters from previous books and getting the HEA wedding. I’m just sad this is the end of one of my all-time favorite series.
I just love the Beautiful B* series. It's so hard to pick a favorite when it comes to these guys. I wasn't sure I would even like Will since he is such a player. However, he was so charming and honest that I couldn't help but fall for him. Like the other books in this series there is plenty of HOTNESS! Which is what I love best about this series. I just hope we get more from this fantastic writing duo.
This was another great listen from Kristen Ashley’s Dream Man series. Although it started out a little slow, the overall story was fantastic. I loved the fact that both characters were a little bit older (in their 40’s) and more mature. They didn’t fight over stupid things and always managed to work things out by talking about their problems. Despite all the drama from ex-spouses, kids, etc. they had each other’s backs and were completely committed to one another. I could really relate to this couple.
Kristen Ashley is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I love her unique writing style and Kate Russell’s narration is spot on.
Another 5 star listen!
I loved the first book Connected, but the cliffhanger ending really annoyed me. Thankfully the conclusion to this 2-part series was absolutely amazing. I couldn't imagine a more perfect ending for this storybook couple.
The love between River and Dahlia is off-the-charts romantic and I enjoyed the journey of these two soul mates through good times and bad. This was a satisfying end to a beautiful, romantic and emotional series. Just perfect!
If you're looking for a great credit-worthy listen then look no further.
Much like the first book, this was an extremely difficult read/listen for me. Given the subject matter is about sex slaves and human trafficking I don't believe it was meant to be an easy-going listen. But in some strange way it was a happy story with a satisfying ending.
This book was intense, emotional, dark, disturbing and all together wrong! However, I absolutely loved it. (not sure what that says about me the listener). All the twists and turns and OMG moments were amazing. I loved the flashback and flash forward storytelling in this one. At first it made my head spin but in the end the pay-off was so worth it.
Definitely worth a credit in my opinion.
I really wanted to hate this book, but in the end I actually loved it. I wonder what that says about me as a reader/listener? The subject matter of this book was seriously disturbing and made me extremely uncomfortable. There were many times I had to put this one down and could not revisit it for several days. There is abduction, beatings, rape and overall humiliation of another human being. How could this possibly be a love story? Perhaps I’m de-sensitized or nothing really shocks me anymore. No matter the reason, the author really pulls this one off. She manages to make the reader care for the hero and heroine. And despite all the horrible things Caleb does to Livvie, I still wanted them to end up together.
This was a very dark listen but it was well worth my credit.
The final installment of my favorite YA series was heartbreaking and disappointing. I'm sad over the ending (like most people) and disappointed by the overall plot and direction this book takes in the final installment. There were just too many gaping plot holes and total character assassinations. What happened to bad-ass Four? He turned into a wimp in this one. What??? Perhaps it was the dual narration and finally getting into his head, but it just didn't work for me. I also didn't buy into the whole "Truman Show" aspect of this one. Seriously? It felt contrived and a bit lazy by the author.
Overall this book broke my heart in so many ways. It could have been so much more but in the end just didn't live up to my expectations.
This was a good short listen for when you need a break between heavier types of reading. Although I appreciated that it was a quick listen it still felt a little too rushed. The whole story was too thin with no real depth. We don’t get to understand the motivation of the characters or form any connection to them. You just end up not caring about them as much as you should. Maybe the author was trying too hard to make this book like 50 Shades and Bared To You? There are many similarities (which I don’t mind) but just didn’t seem to work in such a short book. I can’t say this was horrible but it wasn’t great either.
2.5 stars overall
Another brilliant listen by Kristen Ashley. I love her biker bad boys and this one was at the top of my list with alpha male hotness. In this book we have the biker princess Tabby (daughter of the MC’s president) and swoon-worthy Shy (the biker club brother). They’ve both been secretly in love with each for some time but tragedy brings them together in a most unexpected way. This of course leads to lots of steamy sex and a HEA. I loved seeing characters from previous books; Tack, Tyra, Tex, Mitch, Hawk, Lee and the very fabulous Elvira! I love the Chaos MC! Come on Audible, bring us Motorcycle Man please!
Even though this is not her first book, it could still be read as a stand-alone. I will warn you that Kristen Ashley has a very unique writing style and not all appreciate her stiff dialogue or run on sentences. I for one love it.
5 star listen!
