I'm a pawn, a piece of chattel, a toy - used and forgotten. When you're done with me, you can walk away with no regrets. That's how my husband sees me. I try to be the best wife possible for him. After all, he took me on when no one else would. Now - he's in debt and owes more money to the loan shark than we can possibly repay. But, don't worry, he's come up with a solution, it's just not one I was expecting. I've been traded.

Traded by Rebecca Brooke
This is a fascinating story. The main guy in the story comes across as the bad guy. Ashton is the son of a loan shark who is collecting from her husband who owes his family a lot of money. Elaina is an emotionally abused woman who is traded by her husband for time to get more money together for debt. Ashton decides to take the deal in order to get her out of the situation and show her she deserved better. The author does a wonderful job showing the inner turmoil of the woman thrust out of an abusive situation into the unknown.
This narration duo does an incredible job. I love how they read with inflection – like they truly care about the story they are reading. They aren’t scared of the sexy scenes but also put true caring and inflection following the story of an abused woman.
Definitely give this book a chance but be aware if you have triggers regarding abuse it is not one to pick up lightly.

I loved the way Ashton was with Elena. He was so sweet and caring, made you just fall in love with him.
Ashton, he is the sweetest bad guy you will ever meet! I loved the way he empowered Elena to stand on her own.
Yes I have, I love this duo they are truly amazing together. I cant wait to hear more from them.
I tried, but it was a little long for one sitting. I can say I never wanted to turn it off.
Rebecca did an amazing job writing this book. I look forward to more work by this Author

I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.
First time listen to this author and she impressed me. I expected a bit more of the down-and-dirty side of a Mafia Romance but was given a real love story. And I loved the story.
Honey Scarlett and Leeroy Will were awwwsoooome! I have heard them once before (quite recently) and hope the continue to do a lot more narrations in their perfect duo voices.
TWO ENTHUSIASTIC THUMBS UP!!
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. This was my 2nd audiobook by Honey and Leeroy, I really enjoy the rough quality to Leeroy's voice. Well done
I first heard Honey and Leroy in Burning Ember. They really know how to move you to get lost in listening to a good book and this one was another great performance. They really know how to pick good books to work with. The story with this was steamy and great and had me wondering when Dominick would make his appearance again. You were left looking over your shoulder waiting for the shoe to drop and finally it did and although I was hoping for a little more battle with him, I'm not disappointed.
Avid listener while doing everything from chasing after my toddler to running errands. Fan of all Romance, PRN & fantasy, mystery thrillers.
I think the duel narration was Fantastic and definitely added a missing element that the print version doesn't have.
Ashton's overly sweet and kind treatment of Elaina.
I haven't but I will in the future because they were excellent narrators.
It was hard at times to listen to the self abuse that was brought on by her husbands abuse. But having known someone who was an abuse victim it was very realistic in some aspects as to how victims see themselves, and ultimately stay in those situations.
This story has some triggers, it also has a mild D/s elements but not enough that Ibwould classify it as that genre. It has some very dark points and some great lighter points, but their were moments that the down trodden demeanor can become annoying and redundant, other than that the story was enjoyable, just not exactly what the blurb leads you to think, in a good way. I was given this audiobook for free from audiobook boom for my unbiased review.
Honey Scarlett and Leeroy Will bring so much life to all the characters in TRADED, a story of love, betrayal and trust. Ms. Scarlett's voice is beautiful and soothing as she seamlessly takes on each female character in this book. And Mr. Will is a master of voices, his raspy voice sending shivers up and down my spine as he takes on all the male characters with gusto. I always feel like I am experiencing a movie unfolding with this dynamic narration duo. Their ability to make the reader FEEL each scene is AMAZING!!
Hello I am addicted to Audible!!! The addiction is real and I need help...more credits that is.....
I was given this book in return for my honest unbiased opinion. I really liked this book but at the beginning of the story I thought I was going to go crazy. i can't deal with mental or physical abuse. Her husband was a jerk hut man the best thing was the trade. I loved this story and won't give away all the good parts. The narration was great as well. This book is sn overall win.
Absolutely. I loved the hidden hope that was built within the story
Their voices were extremely pleasant to listen to and they did other characters voices with just enough of a difference.
I found myself smiling a lot while listening to this book
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
Who would put mod type stuff with the chance to get a young women out of a abusive repressive relationship? From the get go you go back back and forth from loving and hating the book. There is A LOT of strong language used non stop in this book. There is graphic sex acts. There is the degradation of a young women. ( this is the hate part) but then you get hooked in to finding out where the heck the author is taken you with this crazy mix. Put it this way it was no typical walk in the park . And strangely that's what made it good for me at least. I LOVED the different characters voices His so strong and her so soft and sweet added to the story itself. I received this book at no charge in exchange for an honest review.
I voluntarily listened to, and reviewed the audiobook version of this book.
It is definitely a book that draws you in. I liked the premise of the storyline and was interested to see where it went. A lot of the storyline was a little predictable and 'too good to be true'. Also I'm no prude, but there was a little too much detail in some places...sometimes less is more!! I'm not really a fan of sex scenes in audiobooks...it all feels a little wrong, like you're invading someone's privacy!!
I've seen some other reviews describe this book as a 'dirty fairytale' and I think that's a great description. I think there are some areas in the book that could've been explored more than all the sex and lust but that's probably my fault for not understanding the genre of the book.
I give this book 3*.
