I've been waffling about this book and series for as long as it's been out, and trying to get up the courage to read it. I knew going into this story that it was going to be heart-breaking, so when I saw it was available as an audiobook, I wanted to listen. I listened in the car, in bed at night, and honestly wished I could have listened to the 30+ hours without stopping.

I balled my eyes out within the first few chapters, and felt gutted and torn apart throughout the whole story, but I'm really glad that I had this dark story a chance.

Roberto Scarlato is a new-to-me narrator, and I loved his different accents. They had the story come even more alive for me.

Okay, when I originally read this story, I thought Rip was a major jerk whom treated Gil really horribly. However, listening to John Solo bring both characters, and Katie, to life changes my opinion. His narration really brought the characters new life to me. His interpretation of both Gil's and Rip's personality was so amazing that I actually fell for the big jerk.

Having three narrators for this story really makes the story. Ava Lucas did an incredible job on Quinn's POV. I've read this story previously, and listening to the story brought a different element to the story. All of the narrators clearly differentiated all the minor characters, and that means a lot to me when listening to an audiobook.

Have you ever wanted something so badly that you would do just about anything to get it? Have you felt as though you weren't quite good enough, so you deserved what life eked out? So much so that you've endured things you knew were wrong, but weren't sure what to change to fix it? If you have, then you're very much like me. That was exactly how I've been living my life, suffering for reasons I couldn't explain. I wanted something I couldn't seem to find, something I doubted I deserved. Until one day, I was in exactly the right place at the precisely the right time.

So, I will admit that I totally listened to this narration because Tor Thom has a hot voice that I could listen to all day! How dual narration with Charley Ongel completely made the story for me.

I didn't read the story prior to listening to the audio, and it made the story almost feel more for me, over reading it on the page.

Once upon a time, I believed in fairytales. But then he took me. And he taught me that life isn't a fairytale. He is scarred. Broken. A dark and wild thing. His beauty is violent and his words are cruel. His heart is a shadowed landscape where nothing can grow. He tells me he could never care for me, and he proves it every day.

This is a different story from A. Zavarelli's mafia series, but I loved it just as much. This twist on Beauty and the Beast was unique, and I cried over some parts is the story. Tracy Marks really brought the story to life, and her ability to change depending on the character is phenomenal!

The only thing Jag loves more than his custom bike is Ivy. He's wanted her ever since he could remember. However, through the years, he's had to watch her date anyone but him, since she avoids dating bikers like the plague. Instead, she gravitates toward the complete opposite: geeks and nerds. Something Jag will never be. Smart and independent, Ivy wants to be the property of no man.

I'm more in love with Jag after listening to this audiobook. The dual narration is fantastic, and really brings the characters more to life than simply reading the book. Ava Lucas was able to distinguish each female character, no matter how minor. C.J. Mission is almost exactly how I picture Jag to sound.

I had not previously read this story, and since it was recommended by someone, I didn't read what it was about. Tor Thom and Charley Ongel did such an incredible job in this emotionally difficult story. I often had to stop because I was crying. Please your that this story deals with a tough subject of abuse, and may be a trigger for some listeners.

The dual narration was among, and really added to the story.

I have always been a bird. Caged by one prison or another when the only thing I ever wanted was to fly away. Sold. Beaten. Starved. Drugged. Nothing scares me anymore. Until him. He makes the numbness go away. He is hazardous to me. It has nothing to do with his mafia lifestyle, and everything to do with what he offers. A gilded prison. A retreat from everything that I once knew. The reality I have no desire to return to. He thinks he's caged me, but soon I'm going to fly.

I'm totally in love with Tracy Marks narration!!! Her accents are amazing and each story, including this one, is unique. I'm shocked with her ability to distinguish between different POV, as well as different characters in this story.

The story itself is so amazing, and I haven't read the story previously. However, now I want to get the whole series!!!

After spending the last 10 years in prison, Zak, former DAMC president, has a few priorities: to reconnect with his "brothers", to get drunk, and to get laid. Not necessarily in that order. When he spots a stunning woman in the clubhouse and mistakes her for one of the club's strippers, those priorities get a bit skewed. Sophie has no idea what happened to her life. One minute she's totally focused on building her bakery business, and the next? She's delivering a cake to the Dirty Angels motorcycle club's "homecoming" celebration for a member who just got out of prison.

Absolutely love Zak's story and learning about the DAMC. Not a fan of the narrator, as she made the characters into something they weren't, but it was stl nice to hear the story come to life.

It's one thing to read a story, but when a voice is added, it changes the dynamic of the story, and a totally different dynamic is created.

I'm looking forward to listening to the rest of the DAMC stories come to life!
