This is categorized as a mm sports audio however other than Ripcord being a NFL star there is no part of the game in this series. I have to say I wasn’t too fond of Rip in first book and part of the second book. He was bossy and seemed it was his way or no way. That being said Gil was mousy and didn’t stand up for himself either. He just went along with anything because Ripcord was his dream guy. My opinion changed towards end of book 2 where we see Rip put Gil’s want/needs first. The 3rd book was the best in my opinion and made the whole trilogy worth listening to. It shows who Rip really was and why he was who he was. Gil also was able to vocalize what he wanted and needed.

The story was good and flowed easily. The sex was hot and very detailed. I will be looking to see what other audios the author has in the future.

John Solo did a great job narrating. It was easy to distinguish each character. He also told the story with feeling not just read it aloud. I have listened to his work before and will do so in future.

This is the entire Bound and Controlled series. It is about a family of brothers who are in some way into the BDSM scene or D/s relationships. Each one is altogether different. I enjoyed how the story flowed from book to book. It would focus on a different brother each time but as a whole it was a continuation of the series. The brothers partners were my favorite they brand so much to the book with their quirky ways. I have to say I loved Oliver he was by far my favorite with Wyatt a close second.

This wasn’t the bdsm book I typically read. I’m used to more in depth scenes so this is a milder taste. That didn’t make it worse or better just different. I have also read several of the authors book under a different pen name that has characters more into the bdsm scene and more erotic that I absolutely loved. So depending your your preferences depends on which you prefer. I liked both but the deeper in scene(naughtier and tabooish ) is for me. I will be looking for more audios written by this Shaw Montgomery soon.

As for the narration this was my first audio by Kenneth Obi. He was good at voice distinguishing. Having so many characters it was difficult for to like them all but they were easy to tell who was talking. I really like how the story is told to you with emotion instead of just being read. I would definitely try one of his other narrations in the future.

I was given this audio in exchange for an honest review.

This series is so good. I hope more books are to come. With each book it seemed to be have even more broken characters with heartbreaking stories. I loved both Taz and Will. There were sad moments throughout but the sweet ones were so special to watch both Taz and Will heal each other was amazing. There is also a mystery in this one that had me guessing till the end

Tyler Stevens did an amazing job narrating not only this book but the entire series. The story wasn't just read but it was narrated in a way that made you feel you were there with the characters. They cried you cried. They laughed and so did you. I really hope if more books are written that he also does the narration.

Overall this is an amazing series with great narration. I do recommend listening to them in order to know the back story of the secondary characters but it can be read as a standalone. I really wish that all of the secondary characters books were on audio.

I already loved Dusty from Book 1. This made me absolutely love him even more. He went through a lot in book 1 and for him to finally get what he deserved was amazing to watch. Asher is hot and so sweet. They are an adorable couple. This is a sweet story with a little angst. If you haven't read book 1 I highly recommend doing so first. Not only is Rue's story amazing you get the back story of Dusty.

The narration was great. The voices were distinctive. The narrator didn't just read the story he told the story and made it come alive.

I have to mention the cover as well. It is stunning and perfectly portrays what I imagine Dusty looking like.

I look forward to listening to more by the authors as well as the narrator.

Absolutely Loved It

Have you listened to any of K.C. Kelly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to KC Kelly in a few other audio and loved his narration. This one is just as great.

Any additional comments?

I loved this audio. Chaz is the best! The storyline is unique. The chemistry between the main characters is off the charts. It is funny and sweet with a little angst.

What about Nick J. Russo and Dorian Bane ’s performance did you like?

I loved both narrators voices and their performances. Dorian Bane would be the favorite of the two because his voice is so sexy and perfect for his part in the story.

Any additional comments?

There is lots and lots of sex. It is very detailed. The storyline focuses around the sex scenes throughout most of the book. However the ending is amazing. If you like a lot of hot sex scenes then you will love this book.

Definelty! Amazing story with wonderful characters

What did you like best about this story?

Jay was my favorite but I all were preformed well. It was easy to tell who was who by the different voices.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes but I won't go into details as it would give spoilers.

Any additional comments?

This is an great audio with an narrated with an Austrialan accent which I loved. The story is sweet and had very little angst. Jay has effeminate characteristics. Absolutely loved him.

A Little Too Broken written and narrated by Brad Vance is incredible. I knew immediately after reading the synopsis that this was a book I would enjoy. One man with a military disability, who works with canine helpers and the other who is HIV positive, what a great storyline.

I was hooked from the moment I started the audiobook till the very end. A Little Too Broken is 3.5 hours long. It was so good, I was able to finish within 5 hours of starting it. I would have finished right at the 3.5 hours, if life wouldn't have gotten in the way. The voices fit the characters and the story flowed well. Therefore, it was easy for me to connect with them all and get a good visual of the scenes.

I love both Jamie and Tom. They are such great men who have been dealt a crap hand, but refuse to let the disadvantages own them. Their situations maybe different, but they are both survivors. It's these circumstances that bring Jamie and Tom togethor. They both are instantly attracted to the other. However, both men believe that their issues would be a big downfall for the other so they sidestep the pull it has on them. Jamie and Tom become great friends and share everything. They finally realize that they could have it all if they are willing to take the leap.

When they finally come to terms to take their friendship to the next level, they don't take anytime to hit the sheets. It is both hot and beautiful. Taking this step is scary for both Tom and Jamie, but they trust and love their partner enough to know that it was ok to break down the final barrier. It's the strength that these men possess that I love the most.

The secondary characters are terrific. They offer support, but aren't afraid to give them a little push when needed. Tom’s family is great. I loved their dynamics. It was comical to see how his sister poked at their father when it came to her views verses his. There is a scene at the end with Tom’s dad that is amazing. His dad is kind of a hardass set in his military ways, but this particular part shined a new light on him. It brought me to tears and made me want to just hug them both.

The only complaint that I have has nothing to do with how the book is written or narrated. I felt so much for the characters that I didn't want the book to end.

This may have been the first book that I have read or listened to by Brad Vance, but it wont be the last.

Wow! This is my first book by B.N Toler and definitely won't be my last. The writing is flawless. I was hooked from the moment I read the synopsis till I finished their story. The narrators did such an amazing job. I was easily able to connect with the all the characters. I fell deeply in love with Ike, Charlotte and George. My heart was torn to shreds then carefully put back together. I cried throughout the entire story. Not all sad tears but also happy ones. Have Kleenex ready as I had to have went through a entire box. I can't recommend this beautifully, heartbreaking love story enough. I really was hoping to see a little more into the future so I hope there will be more someday.

A great start to the series

At 14 years old, Jimmy witnessed his father's murder. Vowing to find out who did it, is what made his decision later to become a PI instead of following in his father's footsteps an becoming police officer.

When Jimmy lands a missing person case of the son of a wealthy attorney, He finds himself looking for Harris Rothschild. Harris was easy to locate somewhat too easy. A series of events that follow this discovery. There are twist and turns from murder to physical threats that start happening that keep you guessing.

Only at end did the multiple cases Jimmy found himself entangled in have some closure.

Hidden Identity by Adam Carpenter was different from the Romance books I usually read. This didn't have really a romance storyline to it. There was some hot sex but it was more of the mystery. It was the suspense of what was going on and what would happen next that kept you enthralled.

Joel Leslie did a great job narrating. The different voices he was able to do made it easy for me to distinguish between characters. The main voice of Jimmy seem fitting for how I imagined.

The author did a good job with the writing. It flowed well and kept you guessing at the same time. The vivid details of the scenes and characters helped me connect with them. The ending isn't a HEA OR HFN type as its not really a romance book. That said, it doesn't end in major cliff hanger but leaves you wanting more of Jimmy's story.
