I read the first book and really enjoyed it. when it came out on audibles, i downloaded. Narrator read it too fast. book 2 i had not yet read, but it had a new narrator. This one also read too fast, but also sounded like a teenager, so she was worse. While i liked the first story, it was a beleivable fantasy. This story was too far out on the unbeleivable limb for me and i found myself fast forwarding to get to the end. i can't list the details that i found so unbelievable without adding spoilers. i already downloaded book 3, but may return without listening... Disappointing all the way around.

Any additional comments?

The narrator did a good job. Her voice matched the age of the heroine and the other characters were also done well.

This book was not sweet like Mayhem, but the characters are not what you would call adorable like Adam and Peach, so that is to be expected. But Adam and Peach had their story, so we want a different experience. We first met Joel and Dee in Mayhem and knew before going into Riot that a charming story was not in the cards for these two. Joel sleeps with a different girl or girls every night. He always has someone new hanging off of him whenever Dee sees him; even after they hooked up in the first book. Joel has no plans to change his man-whore ways. Dee is the female version of Joel in that she has sex with different guys on a regular basis and never lets herself feel anything for them. She likes to capture their attention, their hearts, and then dump them and move on. This type of female character is harder to identify with as most women are not quite so open sexually, especially sex without emotion, and tend to be more sensitive to other’s feelings; but heartless women are certainly not unheard of. The good news is that Dee is not really cold-blooded; she believes this is what she has to do in order to protect herself from being hurt.

Joel and Dee start off playing the game of – look at me, I’m cooler than you and can get anyone I want – that quickly becomes a habit. However, Joel is not like every other guy Dee has been with and does not fall into her jealousy trap. This drives Dee crazy and she can’t walk away. Dee makes a bad decision that quickly intensifies the story and the relationship between her and Joel. Eventually they both fall hard. The negative behavior of both characters is expected due to their age and normal behavior patterns, but Dee tends to be a bit more self-absorbed throughout the story. There are things in her background that drive her to act out and push those who care about her away; even her best girlfriend. I just wanted to slap her and tell her to get over it. But then, that is normal behavior for me. LOL Everyone knows at least one drama queen that they would like to slap or shake the crap out of. I know a few that are way past the maturity level of the characters in this book.

The beauty of Jamie Shaw’s writing is her ability to create such unique, realistic and age appropriate characters. Real me in with all the characters in book one so I can’t get enough, and I will auto download every book in the series – and that is the true brilliance of a good author. Do not pass up this author. I am looking forward to Sean and Kit’s story…

second listen. decent college love story. interesting change in that the hero keeps pushing the heroine away when usually it is the other way around. I understand his reasoning, but the last time he does it really ticked me off and i felt the heroine should have moved on and then told him where to go when he tried to come back for the umpteenth time. I guess it's a good thing I am not the author. Good series. Well worth a listen. Also liked the narrator...

not sure why this story drove me crazy, but i found myself skipping parts of it, more and more as the story progressed. i am still glad i listened to it regardless as i adore the characters in this series, i think the story coulg have been told in five hours instead of eight. cutting some would have tightened it up. Both narrators are ok, but the way they are used does not work. The male voices from the female are much better than the female voices from the male. The moving back and forth between narrators does not enhance the experience. maybe if the female read all female diologue and the male read all male diologue, it would provide a much needed balance. glad zander got his story...

Any additional comments?

Pros:
Liked the hero, exciting fight at the climax of the story between the hero and his opponent who was a very bad guy, good HEA and ending

Cons:
Heroine has a real chip on her shoulders throughout most of the story. The fat comments by adults were juvenile at best and offensive at worst. The heroine has lost 80 pounds, works out every day and is in fantastic shape, so because she is size 12, she is considered a pity date by one and a piggy by others? Give me a break. Really? Is this the world we live in today? Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Healthy is beautiful. Also, the bad guy kidnaps the heroine not once, but twice, and no one ever presses charges against him? Maybe the author should consider writing fantasy where the reality check can be left at the door. Narrator was only OK, not able to differentiate between characters much. Except the bad guy, he spoke with a southern accent. Finally, the story was done before. The opponent uses the hero’s girlfriend against him in an effort to win the upcoming fight. Nothing new here, but it makes the meat of the story more important which fell short for me.

In spite of all my cons, the author knows how to use a pen. Will I continue with this series? Not sure, but I will not be opposed to trying this author in the future if the story description captures my attention.

This story is so well written with an exciting hero and strong heroine that really draw you in. The supporting characters are fun and developed well. By the end, you feel like you are part of the story, you know everyone so well. As stated by other reviewers, the sex does not come until the end, but it comes at the perfect moment for the story. So many authors miss this concept. Sometimes a story needs more sex scenes, but so many times they are just thrown in to fill pages. I was never bored, never felt the story was missing anything. Yes, it is more of a YA, but a good romance is a good romance, no matter the age.

I love Andy Arndt's narration. Her first performance for me was Lick, one of my all time favorite rock romances. She did an excellant job here as well.

If you love a romance that will stay with you long after you finish, don't let this one pass you by. I will be following this auther for more great romance...

SPOILER - The story is about a young women sleeping with the guy of her dreams one night after he catches his girlfridnd in bed with someone, and he comes home drunk. The next day, he does not remember sleeping with her and then she ends up pregnant. This happens at the beginning of the story, so we go through the whole book with the heroine pregnant worrying about how to tell the father, get him to notice her and fall on love with her, and all the things that get in the way. Then something bad happens, they eventually end up together, the story ends; but it ends before she has the baby!! I guess we don't need to see the baby brought into the world safely. Rather ticked me off. I was invested and feel like the story was not finished.

Did not care for the narrator. Voice is slow and monotone.
