Publisher's Summary

Ass-kicking Guardian, Madelyn Mason, is the only female in a sea of supernatural males. College student by day, she spends her nights fighting for mankind - the innocents, the ones who have no clue that the things of nightmares walk among the living.

Larger than life Hollywood hunk, Brady Devens, has won the hearts of millions of adoring fans. But, the only heart he wants to win is that of his mate, Madelyn. She hasn't shown an interest in him as anything more than a friend, and he's beginning to think the Powers That Be goofed.

In this world of magik, mishap, demons, gods, and pleasure nymphs, anything is possible. Can they find a love that transcends time and space or will the Powers That Be decide maybe they weren't destined for one another after all?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    What did you like best about this story?

    All of it


    Any additional comments?

    I loved it. Sooooooo much action. I don't like to give the story away so all I will tell you is Madelyn Mason is a strong willed kick butt guardian. The story is hot and full of so much action that the author could have made 3 books out of it lol. I loved it and so hope she makes a part 2 and so on! If you love action and a great story plot with your romance then this book is for you.

    "nice introduction into Roth’s paranormal romances"

    I never quite know what I’ll get with a Mandy Roth title, beyond the smart-mouthed comments and some incredibly hot and sexy scenes, the layering of her characters with otherworldly traits, unique settings and inherent conflicts can be set anywhere: from real-world to outer space.

    Madelyn and Brady are friends, roommates and absolutely adorable together. Madelyn is a guardian, protection of the innocents with her not insignificant fighting skills. Brady is the latest Hollywood hot thing, an actor that works for Madelyn’s father. The only person to know Mady’s secret – Brady is that stand-up guy that you want in your corner, and that is her main reason she isn’t willing to endanger the relationship that they had with sexual games. But they do, at first, dance to that cliff and back in nearly every interaction.

    Not only is Madelyn the only woman in guardian’s history – it seems that everyone is keeping secrets from her. And as kick-ass as she is, and able to manage just about every challenge she faces in her efforts to protect the innocents, she just can’t seem to put all the pieces together.

    And then, the revelations starting coming fast and furious- and here I thought Mady was a little ‘off’. Thinking she had to manage it all, and believing that those who ‘knew’ her secret didn’t understand her, when the pieces start to fall in for her, she is far too complacent in her reaction. A temper tantrum, some smart ass comments, even a few punches would have felt better for me. But, this led the story into the well-developed and still transforming relationship between her and Brady, and from the seriously palpable sexual tension that was unfulfilled, we move into some incredibly inventive and steamy moments with plenty of heat and action to spur the imagination.

    Narration in this story is provided by Sarah Van Sweden. Her tone is pleasant and her speech is clear, and while the performance starts with only small modulations in tone and pacing to delineate each character, those changes became more pronounced as the story progressed and worked to smoothly set Brady and Madelyn separate from the other characters that were introduced. What I did notice was a decided lack of “performance” in the narration: concise and clear speech is necessary for the listener, but the tiny pauses as each single syllable and word is enunciated ( slowly – I – faced – them ) left me knowing that the text was being read. What that did was add a hiccup in the flow: I understand that careful attention to the written word is important, and clarity in speech is necessary, but the quest to not make errors (when they WILL happen) halts the natural flow of the narration. What I can say is that during the more action-heavy scenes, she does speed her pace slightly and the hesitations between the words seems to diminish slightly.

    A fun story, this is a nice introduction into Roth’s work for those not familiar with her writing, and sure to please those who enjoy a paranormal fantasy romance with a bit of heat and a smart-mouthed heroine.

    I received an AudioBook copy of the title from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    "Outstanding"
    What did you love best about The Guardians?

    I loved every moment of this book. It was just as good in audio as it was to read on my own. I pouted when I reached the end I want to hear more about The Guardians and the upcoming war that is brewing. The promised mates and the lives of those who are friend and family... I also want to see how the bad guy meets his end.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love audio books because I can listen to them and do other things at the sametime. It frees up my hands for other projects that I always have going on.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I think the most moving part of this entire story is when he shot her. I know it sounds twisted but the the emotions that played out in that and clear up through the part as she spoke with her mother as she was ''dead'' was the most moving. There are other scenes of course that were just as important but the emotion in that moment was off the charts.


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

    yes as mentioned above.. the part where he shot her, she ''died'' and the following connection she shared with her mother then returned and the connection she shared with her ''men''

    "Really good story‼️‼️"

    I loved this story, did not want to stop listening to go get out of the car. Maddy is 25 and a Guardian,the only female Guardian too. This is her story of finding out she is more than meets the eye. This is a must read/listen to story. The characters are wonderful and take you on an adventure. Happy listening.
