Some people are born with a silver spoon in their mouths and lady luck tucked into their back pocket. Then there's people like me, who live to survive. Survive loss. Survive loneliness. Survive the black tar that swallows you whole, stealing everything and anything that could resemble a piece of happiness. They try and fail, try again and fail even harder. Starting life's never ending cycle of wash, rinse, and repeat.
That's me. Or it was. Ten years I wandered through life. Through 10 towns. Through 10 men. Then, I didn't anymore. A hellacious storm came and ripped everything away, leaving me stripped bare for the most beautiful man. A man part of the Corrupt Chaos Motorcycle club, who not only saved my life but rescued my soul. Or so it may seem from the outside. On the inside, it's not that simple. Life never is.
And it's painstakingly relentless.
I'm Magdalene Murdock and this is my story.

I really like this audiobook. Great story about two broken people who come together and help pull each other out of the darkness. The characters are great and can't wait to see next in this series. Great audiobook
Addicted to any type of Romance/Erotica audio books.
This book just knocked me down! The ending was just...just...yeah, I have no words...ok I have 5 word....That was just mean, Bink!! (In a good way of course)
Mags is a very strong but lonely & lost character. She knows loss and instead of dealing with it, she just runs from it. Lachlan is a Biker, Firefighter and good dad but he is also very emotionally damaged. Oh and did I forget Scottish?? Yep, pretty much a complete ball of hotness! These two spend all their time trying not to have any feelings for each other but of course that's not always easy. This story started off a bit slow but still had me staying up until 3am finishing it!
The narrator is phenomenal! Tracy Marks is on my instant buy list. I have listened to many books I never would have because she is the narrator. I just love her voice, the inflections in her characters voices and her pace is perfect. In this book she does an awesome job at a Scottish male. Just another reason to love her work! She adds an extra Star to every book she narrates!
First of all I loved, loved, loved this book. I loved Lachlan, a Scottish Biker with a heart of gold and is an amazing father (Swoon) The way he helped Mags through everything and never wanted to leave her side just made me melt. Lachlan daughter Bridgett was also an amazing girl, I just fell in love with her, and they way she was with Mags.
The abuse the three of them all dealt with over the years is very hard to hear, and is very heartbreaking but the way they start to over come it was amazing. Once I started this book I just could not stop, this story had me from chapter 1. Hands down a great book and I can't wait for more.
Tracy Marks did a fantastic job with the narration of this book, her Scottish accent was perfect! If I had more then 5 stars I would give them to her for her performance with this book.
Story of Magdalene with lots of tragedy in her past is saved by Lachlan, the Scottish fireman. Sounds like a basic story right? Wrong- there was so much going on here, both with the relationship between Magdalene and Lachlan and their relationships with his daughter, other members of his MC, and many others. I couldn't get enough of this story and especially Lachlan. This narrator absolutely nails this performance. To be able to differentiate the ladies so well and then to do a male so convincingly that it made me swoon to his Scottish accent every time- Amazing!! I am not a regular to the 5 star recommendation club, but this story made me give up sleep for more of figuring out all of the nuances and dynamics playing out, never bored me, and again the narrator just blew it out of the water. If I had to give any criticism, during the first half of the book, if Magdalene said she lost time i.e.-"it could've been seconds, minutes, hours- who knows", one more time I was going to scream- fortunately as I said that in my head, it didn't happen again. And for that to be my only complaint- then obviously I give this a definite high priority on the TBR list.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
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
It's all been said before.... so all I can add is that I love JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood and anything Sylvia Day writes so A N Y T I M E a new book by one of them is released I drop my present listen like a hot potato without even a backwards thought eager to hear what's new from my favorite Authors. However, I just couldn't do it with this awesome listen as it held me captive until the HEA's because the character's came alive in the theater of my mind as I visualized all the various interactions, was moved by the heartbreaking stories and pleaded with the Author to give Mags and Lachlan the love that they so desperately needed and deserved.
Dual POV's often told as if the characters were talking and including you in the story, a character driven plot - their lives, tribulations, heartache and loves and the skilled narrator was the Puppetmaster who brought everything to life. Many voices, both genders, a Scottish accent, an intense plot and some emotional and highly charged scenes were all smoothly accomplished by Tracy Marks who made this such a wonderful listen.
Worth a credit? Does it really need answering..... coz I think you've already guessed that I'm going to say YES.
Footnote - what the Hell were they thinking with the cover? It's a Biker MC story.... hot sexy Alpha types and Mags was an insecure Strawberry Blonde and not a Redheaded Vixen.... so tut tut, thumbs down and boooo for the cover folks.
i do not usually listen to audio books, but i loved this one!!
this is for sure one of my fave books!!!
i loved the narrator!!
very enjoyable. the characters are likeable and relatable. I think there should have been more about the bikes to be considered a MC book. the ending through me, but I looked how it ended.
I have listened to a lot of steamy books like this revolving around MC culture -- this is refreshing. It is less dramatic in the physical peril sense, but I consider that a respite. We all have secrets. It's about the courage it takes to reveal your biggest insecurities to those you love.
i have loved this book since it was first released in e-book format and now hearing it has made me love it even more! absolutely awesome job with the audio.
The push and pull between Mags and Lachlan keeps you guessing on what will happen with them next, Bridgette is a sweetheart and clicks with Mags right away and all the other characters burrow their way into your heart. And all of Mags' funny sayings LOL
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!
