Detective Angie Pallorino hasn't forgotten the violent rapist who left a distinctive calling card - crosses etched into the flesh of his victim's foreheads. When a comatose Jane Doe is found in a local cemetery, sexually assaulted, mutilated, and nearly drowned, Angie is struck by the eerie similarities to her earlier unsolved rapes. Could he be back?

This book was well written, the plot twist kept me listening. Overall it was a great book. The only issue I had was that the main character, was extremely unlikeable. She was so bitter and over the top angry that she almost ruined the book for me. I won’t listen to the next book in the series because I can’t do another book with her in it. With that said, I’m really hoping Kjell Holgersen has a book in this series. I loved his character and really want to know his story.

They say when you assume, you make an ass out of you and me. Kenton Mayson learned this lesson firsthand when he made assumptions about Autumn Freeman and the kind of woman she was based on what little information he had. What he finds out is that she's not only beautiful but also smart, funny, a fighter, and exactly the kind of woman he wants to share his life with. Autumn made assumptions of her own about Kenton, and now he needs to prove her wrong in order to protect her and their future.

Maybe I'm foolish for purchasing this book based solely on the fact that Sebastian York is one of the narrators.
I made it through about 3 hours of this book and finally gave up. No more than a couple sentences from Sebastian York and the female narrator made a terrible breathy, dry lip smacking noise at the start of each sentence. Also, the story was painfully dull and the female character was so obnoxious that I wanted her to just go away. Finally gave up on this story less than 1/2 the way through.

Phoenix "Nix" Knight thought pulling his club out of the illegal shit his pops got them into was difficult. Until he meets Kadence. Kadence Turner has no business lusting over a student's father, especially the president of the Knights Rebels MC. Nix is crass, obnoxious, and dangerously sexy, and for some reason, Kadence can't seem to hate him for it. The bossy biker breaks down her defenses, but unlike the old Kadence, the woman she is today won't give in without a fight. The tension is undeniable, the attraction fierce.

Over all this was a good story, Nix was a fantastic character, even though he lacked the "biker edge" that you'd expect to see in an MC book. I was put off with the Kandace's personality though. She was so condescending & snide that I found it difficult to sympathize with her past trauma. I skipped through her inner dialogue on a few occasions because I just did not like her. She did however redeem herself a bit towards the second half of the book. Looking back I feel that the female narrator contributed greatly to my negative response. Her tone and deliver made the character sound like a stereotypical "mean girl" it literally sounded like she was spitting out her words in anger. Very off putting. The male narrator was fantastic though, his beautiful deep voice coupled with all that dirty talk made the book enjoyable.
