Beware of what you wish for; it might just come true. Train swore never to let a woman get under his skin unless it meant forever, and forever only meant belonging to the Last Riders. He had believed his one brief sexual encounter with Killyama was a "hit it and quit it". Instead her green eyes haunted his memories.

What made the experience of listening to Train's Clash the most enjoyable?

I want to thank JB for getting a different Narrator - because the one that was used for Hostage - was one of the worst I have heard! Thank you so much for going back to Elizabeth Hart!

What did you like best about this story?

Love getting to see what makes Train tick and not to give any *spoilers* but I hope that JB can continue this series with the KIDS!

Have you listened to any of Elizabeth Hart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Thank goodness JB went back to Elizabeth - the narrator of Hostage ruined that book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Any book by JB is one that I can't stop! Can't wait for the rest to hit Audible!!

Any additional comments?

JB - I am really hoping that you continue this series with the Kids - would loved to know how their lives pan out!

As president of The Last Riders, Viper's only fear was losing his wife. After all, he had almost lost her once before. As wife to the president, Winter lived in fear every day: fear that a club enemy would take Viper from her, fear that one of the club women would tempt him to stray, fear that she wasn't enough of a woman for him. One thing Winter didn't fear was risking everything to carry her husband's child, even her health, yet Viper refused to take the chance.

Would you listen to Winter's Touch again? Why?

Absolutely -just like all the others I will definitely be listening to this again! Jamie is an incredible writer!!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Winter's Touch?

Viper dropping to his knees. That is all I will say - because it will be a big spoiler.

What does Elizabeth Hart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She does a great job on all of her books.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I absolutely listened to this book nonstop. Ended up staying up most of the night - wasn't able to turn it off.

Any additional comments?

Jamie - just one time can you write one that won't make me cry? Oh wait - don't do that cause it will take away from the connection you make us all have with your writing.

A nomad with a restless spirit and a cold heart, the open road is his world. One of the few constants in his life is his desire for the one woman who has consumed his thoughts for years.

If you could sum up Sinner's Creed in three words, what would they be?

Love, Heartbreak, Loss

Who was your favorite character and why?

I don't have just one - I was completely wrapped up in all of them.

What about Joe Arden’s performance did you like?

Joe as a narrator is always amazing... I have loved everything he has done.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed and I definitely cried - **spoiler alert** have a box of tissue handy if you listen to this one.

Any additional comments?

I am absolutely looking forward to the next in this series to see where we go from here.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This is one of the dumbest books I have ever listened to. Completely far fetched - bikers acting like teen girls would act. I seriously can't believe how dumb this is!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Narrator was ok - not really fond of her reading... Some of the different voices she tried to do were so BAD... and the so called "evil laughs" a small child could have done better!

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I think a 12 year old could have written a better story then this one....

Any additional comments?

This will absolutely be returned and I will never attempt to listen to another book by this author. What a joke!
Absolutely not worth a credit or even a listen if it was free.

"Here comes trouble!" Colton took one look at the stripper on stage and knew that was exactly what Vida was: trouble. He had no desire to succumb to the young woman tantalizing men with her provocative movements and killer body with no intention of satisfying their fantasies. Fresh out of prison, his tattoo shop and getting rid of an aggravating ex were his first priorities, not a woman who should know better than to become involved in a situation that could get her killed.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I love Jamie Begley as an author. Have loved all of her books thus far - but for some reason this story just wasn't there for me.

What was most disappointing about Jamie Begley’s story?

This kills me to rate so low - since I really really like Jamie Begley - but this story seemed to drag on and on. I think if it would have been shorten or if the few things that came up - were resolved it would have been better. I will continue on with the series and hope that the next few are better.

Twenty years later, Millie's chance run-in with her old flame sparks a desire she just can't ignore. And this time she won't let him ride off....

What disappointed you about Walk Through Fire?

I really like Kristen Ashley - but this story was so drug out. Could have been told in 1/2 the time. It had so much potential but several times things were just cut off or not continued in the story.

Has Walk Through Fire turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator wasn't the issue with this book.

Ella doesn't have any room for romance, but that doesn't mean she has to stop admiring the scenery. Sexy security professional Andrew Copeland is no stranger to women, but he knows Ella is something different. Determined to get her to let him in, Andy does the one thing he can think of to get close: he offers her hands-on training in self-defense - and before long, all that skin on skin contact will have them both turning inside out.

What disappointed you about Inside Out: Brown Family, Book 3?

I loved the first 2 books in this series. This one was just plain boring. Ella seemed so wish washy. Some of it may have been the way the narrator played her voice.

How could the performance have been better?

I think if the voice for Ella would've been different I might have been able to get more into the story.

Want, need, pain, and joy were emotions Shade had never known existed before Lily. He knew the first time he saw her face that she was going to change his life forever. The thing he hadn't expected was how hard it would be to hide who and what he was from her. Each step he took out of the shadows revealed more of himself until only one secret remained. Shade arrogantly believed he could help heal the wounds from her past, but now it was his own past that was trying to tear them apart.

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

I have loved this whole series and this one has to be the BEST!!! I can't even explain how wonderful this was. I know some don't like it cause it does spend a lot of time kind of recapping the previous books - BUT - it answers a lot of questions and show Shade's side of the story.

I don't want to give any **spoilers** BUT I must warn you to have a box of tissue available when you get to about 1 hr and 45 minutes left. All I can say is OMG!!!

Which character – as performed by Carly Robins – was your favorite?

Not my favorite narrator - there are so many others that would have been better. But the story was so good I over looked the not so great narration.

What did you like best about Ruin & Rule? What did you like least?

Had I known that after 15 hours this was going to end with a major cliffhanger and no idea when the next book will show up on audible (if ever) I would have NEVER started this book.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I hate when you are not given a heads up on the book stopping with a MAJOR cliffhanger. When you listen for over 15 hours and are left completely hanging - very frustrating!!!
