Publisher's Summary

Syren Rua is at war. He battles painful childhood demons and his intense need for the first person who makes him feel. As Faro, Syren makes deals with the worst while taking the steps necessary to bring his family’s killer to justice. He isn’t one to indulge in selfish needs, but he’ll make the time in this instance. Syren has been watching Kane Ashby, craving the grieving man for his own. He’s always stayed away from temptation, but that’s about to change. Kane isn’t over the death of his longtime partner. He’s certainly not ready for a relationship, sexual or otherwise, but Syren isn’t a man who takes no for an answer. The unpredictable Syren offers nothing but secrets and brings with him memories so dark, they could wipe out any chance the two might ever have. Syren brings Kane’s heart back to life. But it is also Syren who could inflict the most damage. Inside Scoop: One of our heroes has a panty fetish. And it’s hot. This book also contains brief references to rape and child abuse.

    Story
    "Hanibal Lecter is not sexy to me!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Overall, I enjoyed most of this installment in the Brooklyn Sinner's Series but the narrator's portrayal of Syren was not to my liking. Sounding like Hanibal Lecter isn't sexy to me and it pulled me from the story. Syren is supposed to be sensual not creepy.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I enjoyed seeing the MC's from the previous books books quite a bit. I found that there were many plot holes and "the big misunderstanding" in this book was annoying as hell.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Renard Pasquale?

    I have enjoyed Renard Parsquale's narrations in all of the Brooklyn Sinner books, just not his voice of Syren. I would keep Renard and beg him to give Syren a new voice.

    Story
    "Woah!"

    FYI: This is m/m romance.. and graphic violence... It's a gang member/cop romance... so be warned!

    Ok... Out of all the books in this series... This one always makes me cry!!!! I feel so bad for Syren and Kane... for different reasons of course..but still!!!

    Syren is Farrow, which we learned at the end of book 1... but his backstory was simply sad and outrageous! Plus Syren as Farrow... dang he is still suffering!!!

    I really liked Kane, but I after a while I just wanted him to give in..but he was so hung up over his last lover.. C'mon already... it's been 3 years!

    Loved the ending...

    Great buy/credit/sale

    Narration, yet again...superb!

    Story
    "Syren's voice was bad."

    i do wish I read this one rather than listen to it. The story was good but the narrator's voice for Syren was not enjoyable.

    This story featured Syren Rua (the man with many identities) and his quest for revenge and reclamation of his true self. We learned in the prior books that Syren was working as a double/triple agent against his employer, Ricardo De la Torre, who murdered his family and sold him to slavery. As Syren worked as Faro, he had come into contact with Federal Agent Kane Ashby (brother of Gabe Ashby). Kane was still mending from the death of his partner. But the both of them shared an attraction that they couldn’t deny. Once again, this series pits two men who are on the opposite sides of the law with each other, and like the prior couples, Syren and Kane work.

    Out of all the books I have listened to so far, this was the most pain-filled by far. A lot of people were hurting, from Isa, Syren, Kane, heck even Marshal Jack who made an appearance. What I love is the author gives each couple a unique journey to their HEA, and makes it enjoyable for us to follow.

    My only complaint was the narrator’s Syren’s voice wasn’t good at all. I realized he was trying to give Syren a whimsical, almost effeminate voice, but it didn’t work for me. But I loved his personality, his fetish and his flight or fight responses to Kane. The chemistry was there, the story was entertaining and I am so glad I discovered this series this month.

    Story
    "Syren's Call"

    Unlike a previous reviewer, I did not feel that Syren Rua sounded like Hannibal Lector. Syren is a complicated character, and I feel that Renard Pasquale did a great job of bringing him to life. Some parts of the story were a little hard to take, but you cheer for Syren in the end. I liked the story and the narration.

    Story
    "Best of the series"
    What made the experience of listening to A Sinner Born the most enjoyable?

    Great narrator, great story, Love the story of Kane and Syran. What a story of past and present intersecting with each other and having to fight demons and ghosts.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Syran was by far my favorite character in this book, maybe the whole series. What a past to overcome and a passion to avenge it. His ability to love is unbelievable all the way to the end when he even learns to love himself. LOVED this story.


    Have you listened to any of Renard Pasquale’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Just with the other sinners books! Good narrator, would buy an audio if he was the narrator.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, tried to listen to the whole thing in one day while going back and forth with reading it when I could not listen

    "Fantastic Syren!"
    What made the experience of listening to A Sinner Born the most enjoyable?

    The story was just awesome. I'm glad that Kane and Syren were able to overcome the heartbreak of the past enough to give their love a chance.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Syren. He was so heartbreakingly funny with such a dry strange voice. I loved the part about the panties...so sexy.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story and fantastic performance by Renard Pasquale!

    "A Good Sinner"

    This was a really good. Syren Rua is at war. He battles painful childhood demons and his intense need for the first person who makes him feel. As Faro, Syren makes deals with the worst while taking the steps necessary to bring his family’s killer to justice. He isn’t one to indulge in selfish needs, but he’ll make the time in this instance. Syren has been watching Kane Ashby who is Gabe's brother from the first book, craving the grieving man for his own. He’s always stayed away from temptation, but that’s about to change. Kane isn’t over the death of his longtime partner it's been 7 years. He’s certainly not ready for a relationship. Syren has been working undercover to bring down his boss. This was a really good book and sad at times the things that Syren went through Kane's inability to let go of his dead lover. Syren who likes to wear women's panties with Kane he doesn't have to hide and he can be himself. This was a really good book it was two people both trying to navigate their way through a relationship when both parties have a lot of baggage. Kane to afraid to try again and Syren to afraid to try at all and with all the secret's that Syren have it's very complicated. This book was well read I really liked the narrator's voice. I really like this series and I am looking forward to listening to the next book in this series Tommy and Mateo.

    "Great 3rd installment"

    wow the book is so heartbroken, heartwarming , beautiful and awesome I love it. I loved Kane and Syran So much damage to these two, especially Syren but still beautiful this book has it all. There is drama , angst, hot sex. So many different romances and feelings that tie together and book that kept me intrigued and on the edge of my seat . i cried. i got mad. oh my this is one great book If you like M/M action, drug runners, mobs, secret agents, FBI agents, romance with angst, a little BDSM and freak super- hot sex, jump on this ride to Kane and Syran world is one hell of ride. start with the first book or you will miss each characters' backstory.Renard Pasquale did a great job but my only complaint was Syren’s voice didn’t work for me. But I loved his personality, his fetish was wow sexy. I absolutely and totally recommend this book, this series, this author, and this narrator.

    Any additional comments?

    This story was so amazing when I first read it some time ago!

    But Mr. Pasquale turned an amazing read into an awe dropping, action pack, heart-wrenching romance entertaining audio that I'd absolutely listen to again.

    His accent for Syren was breathtaking. I swear I could listen to him speak as Syren all day long. That accent was beyond sexy and I found myself swooning. -sigh- Why can't all narrators be this good! lol

    "This book is not for the faint hearted"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Sinner Born to be better than the print version?

    Yes, there is so much going on and this is the longest book in the series. Also Syran's story was very painful to deal with so I found it much easier to absorb the whole book in audio form. Thanks for choosing a really good narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    When Kane finally came to his senses and went after Syren


    Have you listened to any of Renard Pasquale’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    So many moments in this book to pick one. Syren telling Kane about his life after he was rescued from his last owner.
