Blackwater Deceiver: Maxine and Blu
- Blackwater Shorts, Book 2
- By: Inger Iversen
- Narrated by: Patrick Zeller, Adenrele Ojo
- Length: 2 hrs and 47 mins
All Maxine needs is a name. Just one piece of information could help Maxine mend a past mistake and let go of her broken past. That name she needs? Her father's murderer. Not because she harbors any tender feelings toward the bastard who beat her mother into a coma. She's desperate to know his last words. She's steadily clawing down obstacles one lie, one trap at a time...until she encounters a brick wall without a single chink in it. Blu, the enforcer guarding the Blackwater Renegades MC's front door. A tattooed, mohawked mountain of muscle whose ice-blue gaze sets her belly on fire.
Patrick's voice for Blue!!!

Such a great story!
I don't often listen to audiobooks because the narrators can sometimes ruin the feel of a book. That was not the case with this book.
First things first, the story... Blu is such a complex character. I was completely entranced in his backstory and am excited about the possibility of learning more about him. Maxine is an equally complex character with strong motivations and a relentless drive to go after what she wants. The two of them together … FIRE
Please keep in mind that this is a short. It was just enough to get me hooked and ready for a full length novel. I really want to be able to spend more time with the characters and see where the story takes us.
The narrators did a good job with the pace and tone and didn't distract me from what was going on with the book.
The only criticism I have is that foreign accents aren't for everyone. When the narrator tried to do the Spooky (Irish) character's voice she sounded more like a mix of Jamaican and something else. Overall though it was a great performance and I look forward to listening to the rest of the series.
