Missy: The dirty little secret Dad left in the basement was supposed to be our salvation. Guess nobody told him you don't take cash from killers without savage consequences. Now the Grizzlies Motorcycle Club owns my sister and me. We're only alive because the rugged hulk with the piercing eyes who won't stop ordering me around says so. He saved us, but he's also an enigma I don't understand.
Brass: I claimed her on impulse, and all my brothers laughed. Didn't know I'd end up with a smoking-hot spitfire who looks at me like I'm the devil himself. I expected my reputation to crack, but my damned mind's going with it. She's got me questioning my own club and asking myself every single day how long I can keep my hands off her.
Contains mature themes.

Just Another Audiobook Addict! Love listening to all types of romances, but occasionally need a good Sci-Fi, Fantasy, or a book with humor!
Ok, I'll admit it, the smokin` hot cover really caught my eye! But it was story and narration that really drew me in! This MC story's got some steamy sex scenes, a decent plot, and great character development.
From the very beginning, Brass was a likeable character, who was not only tough, and sexy but compassionate. Without knowing anything about Missy, he claims her as his "Old Lady" in an attempt to save her and her younger sisters lives. When Missy finds herself and her younger sister at the mercy of the Grizzlies MC gang, with only Brass to protect them, she's thinking she's suffering from a strong case of Stockholm Syndrome because she so attracted to Brass. While he convinces her to play along with the "Old Lady" charade, the chemistry between them develops into something more. As their feelings towards each other become real, they find themselves in danger, and Brass will do whatever it takes to hold on, and save what is "his".
The dual narration was great! Mason and Tatiana both did an awesome job delivering the different emotions from the dirty talk, steamy sex scenes, to the character's angst during the more intense scenes.
Another Kindle Unlimited gem, and Whispersync deal that totally captivated me for hours! I've already downloaded book two!
I am an avid reader, not a professional book reviewer. I gladly offer my opinion of the books I read/listen to.
I am very particular about certain story lines and biker romances fall into that category.
The story of Missy and Brass is believable... totally hot and gives me my HEA after some plot twists. This is very bikeish! There are other MC series I prefer, but this will do in the interim. Missy meets Brass under harsh circumstances that cause he to act to save her life. Their story takes off from there. I do not want to spoil the plot. I believe it is best when heard.
Tatiana Sokolov is one of my favorite narrator/performer, which is why I gave this story a shot to begin with. Mason Loyd grated on my nerves. This is worth a sale and if nothing better is out there, a credit.
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
Brass and Missy's relationship didn't start off well..... to protect the vulnerable woman and her sister Brass claims Missy as his Old Lady and, in doing so, he has saved them from being killed and also is now totally responsible for them. He doesn't know what to do with them both - but he knows what he'd like to do to Missy although he initially resists the temptation and instead puts her to work cleaning the Clubhouse (all I can say is... yuk yuk yuk). Missy is attracted to the handsome Biker but she's scared too - not just of him but also this frightening, violent, crazy, very sexual and intimidating new world that they've found themselves in.
Pent up desire leads to passion and sexy times as Brass does a 180 and puts Missy first.... before his Club, before his Brothers and before himself. He's a lovely Hero - thoughtful, caring, compassionate and very very sexy. There's conflict amongst the Grizzlies because its President, and some other members, have very different goals, objectives and personalities..... they are vicious, violent, evil and very sneaky because it isn't too long before Missy and Brass feel their wrath and witness the horrors.
Raw, gritty and dirty MC talk, dual POV's and good narration made this a juicy, entertaining and enjoyable listen. Yes, there are better MC books out there but this is a very acceptable addition to a well loved genre of mine.
Worth a credit? I did pass this by a few times because it's only 7 hrs long and I prefer a lengthier listen for my credit. However, sometimes I just say "Oh, to Hell with it", suck it up and use my credit. So it's up to you.... if you like the genre too and feel the same way then go for it - but if not then put it in your Wish List and wait for a Sale.
Self Proclaimed Audiobook Expert...lol.
I think this was a ok start to a series but not a strong start out of the gate. I wanted to kick Missy in the teeth many times. I understood that she didn't like the situation she was put in. I got it I really did but her constant snipes at Brass was uncalled for and childish especially when everything he was doing was geared toward saving her and her sister's asses. HE SAVED HER LIFE AND SHE WAS UNGRATEFUL. Then the little sister (14yrs old) got in on the action tossing tude at Missy. Obviously these two fail the Darwin test but thanks to Brass they get to keep trying. And don't get me started on the "Nobody can make this situation better except my self sacrifice" mentality. I hate that shit. Seriously, I hope authors will understand that stupidity does not equal bravery and soon.
This MC club had a bit of a different dynamic than I've listened to before. The old ladies in this club were treated like slaves. they cleaned up after the guys or at least that's how Brass made it sound. We didn't get to "meet" any other old ladies in the story other than Brass' sister and that was for a different club which I think was a different series.
Brass was likeable enough. They kept going over his past about him being a former junkie and something about a fire which kinda confirms there was another series and this is a spin off. I just wish the author would have given us all of his story in THIS book instead of giving us comments and mentions from another series.
The narration. Andi Arndt, Charlotte Penfield or Erin Mallon all would have been a better choice.
No, but I am wary of this author now.
The female narrator was distracting and made it difficult to finish the book. She might work for different genres but I just have trouble with her voice.
None. The story and narrator were the problem.
There are a lot better MC stories out there. I should have trusted the other reviews and skipped this one.
this book left a lot to be desired. the narrators sucked. also as opposed to other Mc romance novels where the club is decent people who do bad things for good reasons this club is just a pack of scum. I couldn't even get through chapter 3. not worth your money or credit.
