Twenty-one-year-old college student, Adriana Nikolas, doesn't really know what to make of Raptor, the sexy biker who seems to be obsessed with getting into her pants. Hot or not, she knows from their first encounter that he's dangerous, both in and out of bed. What Raptor wants, Raptor gets. Right now, he wants Adriana and will do whatever it takes to claim her as his woman. But, she keeps resisting, which isn't something that the road captain of the Gold Vipers is accustomed to. Arrogant, cocky, and stubborn, Raptor takes on the challenge, and in the meantime, gets much more than what he'd bargained for. Meanwhile, Slammer, president of the Gold Vipers, seeks justice for the rape of his Old Lady's daughter.

Absolutely! I love Raptor and it keeps you guessing! Especially the end! I so can't wait until the next audio book comes out!
Too many favorites, but I can tell you the worst! The ending. I wanted to strangle the author for leaving me hanging, but like I said, I loved it! Definitely worth listening to. I recommend giving it a try!
Cassie Alexandra is an amazing author, and Nina Sumter did such a fantastic job with the narration, I hope I'm able to hear more from her!

I am an author as well as a budding audio book lover.
All I've listened to so far were really good including Resisting the Biker.
I'm sure I've read another book it compares too but did take me back a couple decades in age.
Her clear, crisp voice that fit well with the characters, especially Adrianna.
I listened to the audio version which I think gives extra meaning to a book. A good narrator brings the characters to life in a different medium and Nina Sumpter did an excellent job with voicing each character.
The story itself had an easy flow and was full of action and chapter cliffhangers which kept me listening and engaged. Add a few sizzling scenes and capturing the biker community and wa-lah a an irresistable book. Looking forward to the next book!

Narration - Nina Sumter - Fabulous, and bad and good and...
This gal has a really great voice and has a male voice that is spectacular - so that's the fabulous part.
The bad is that the rest of her characters are just a bit too - over the top, almost cartoonish as if for a SNL skit. Her rougher male character voices sound a little like Bobcat Goldthwait. It was sort of distracting. IMHO if she kept her main characters as strong as they are and just did a small variation for the other male and female secondary characters it would be a much more enjoyable listen. Ultimately by trying to make each and every character it's own "character voice" without the vocal chords that are capable of such a feat, it ends up sounding more "Saturday Night Live" instead of dramatic. I don't mean this as a slam, because there are very few people out there who have the ability to create dozens of unique sounding voices that are just normal human voices, so keep doing what you're good at and tone down the rest.
The story? Well, this is tough, because I've read some REALLY good MC books and by comparison, this one falls a little short.
The story is written in multiple POV's and frequently switches back and forth within the same chapter and even in the same scene (including switching in the middle of a sex scene). The prologue starts off with a violent rape scene with a character that we only hear little snippets about a few times later in the book. Very little time is actually spent with the MC club, We meet very few of the club members, and get sporadic and limited details regarding their enemy or rival clubs and why exactly they are the type of enemies that would call for this level of violence towards each other.
The two main characters fall in love somehow, but I didn't feel any real connection to either of them or feel like I was along for the process of them falling in love. When the chemistry and banter are right, you find yourself falling in love right along with them and I just didn't get that here. You feel me?
It was ok, but there's definitely room for growth on this one. Finally, be prepared for a whole lot of loose ends and a big ole giant cliff to dangle from in the end.

To be honest, this was my first one but I thought it was very entertaining. I read the book and when I found out it was going to be on audio, I had to get a copy.
There was a lot of twists and turns. It was a good thriller/romance.
I laughed a few times.
Need book two.
I would listen again. Nina Sumter is a great narrator that can easily do both male and female characters. Speaking of, the characters themselves were interesting and not just bland two dimensional nothings
The sex scenes
When Breaker was killed
Ride it out....
hooked on books
Darn these cliffhangers. I am really surprised how much I enjoyed this book. I am new to motorcycle clubs. I am very much looking forward to the next installment of this series.
Enjoyable story, great Narration. 1 Narrator, great voice distinctions. Wish it wasnt a cliff hanger, but what can you do.....

This was an interesting biker story. I really enjoyed the Gold Vipers. Not only the love/sex part but it looks like besides interesting characters, the storyline is going to be real intense. I have to wait for the next audiook.
Cassie Alexandra showed some promise in her book, but unfortunately, I felt that the romance overshadowed the more interesting aspects of the book. Nina Sumter, on the other hand, is absolutely amazing.
Nina is excellent at providing voices for both male and female characters. It was a rather large cast, especially with all of the bikers. Some of the bikers' voices did sound a bit silly, but I applaud her for giving them distinct voices. The other comment about Nina being the worst narrator ever is rubbish.
Nina made some of the scenes, especially with Adriana's mother, much more emotionally engaging.
I was quite engaged with a rather deadly subplot involving drugs, a kidnapping, and a double murder, and I was even glad that the story had taken the turn. However, after the funeral, I felt that the situation had gone unresolved and it focused more on the romance between Adriana and Trevor. At that point, the story dragged on too long, and I thought that the characters talking about getting hitched was eye-roll-worthy. I never found the romance to be believable.
