This is the first book I've read/listened to by this author. It was a great one to start with, and I'll definitely be looking for more from her. The stories of Megan, Christina, Kyra, and their husbands were emotional, heartbreaking, and uplifting all at the same time. I found myself crying within the first half hour. No matter the reason for not being able to have a child, if you are a sister in "the land of if" you will find the three women's stories and emotions very relatable.

The overall story covered many facets of the world of infertility - secrecy, feelings of shame and blame, the "when are you going to have kids" questions, relationship tension, snobbery, etc. It was all covered in a brutally honest, but compassionate manner. There was an underlying religious tone to the story as well. As someone who is not religious, stories that are heavy on religion can turn me off an otherwise good storyline. Personally, I thought this one had the perfect amount that both the religious and non-religious can find themselves and find comfort in Megan, Christina, and Kyra's stories.

As for the narration, this is the first book I've listened to that has been narrated by Ms. Williams. For the amount of characters she had to voice I thought she did a good job. There was emotion in her narration that was easily felt throughout the entire story. The only thing I wish would have been a little better was her narration of the male voices. Overall, I would recommend listening to more narrations by her.

Zale, the third alpha-born son of King Solomon, is concerned. His youngest brother, Caol, has been spending time with an unbonded omega. Being a responsible alpha, Zale feels it’s his duty to warn the omega Finn before he and Caol get into trouble. Especially since Finn had only been brought to the colony by their father in case his oldest brother’s fated mate couldn’t conceive.

Wow, this was a great addition to The Royal Alphas series. Besides Finn and Zale finding out they were fated mates, there were so many others things going on in this story. Secrets were revealed, most of which threw the Royal Princes and their Omegas for a loop. The weasel, Douglass, was at it again. Did he finally get his due or was allowed to continue overstepping his bounds? I love how close the Royal Princes are to each other and how protective they are of the Omegas.

Now, back to our feature couple, Finn and Zale. They've known each other for two years but, at no time during those years, did they know they were fated mates. How could that be? What purpose did the fates have for keeping them apart? Boy, am I glad they found each other though. The two of them were so good together, and provided some pretty steamy scenes. The story does end in a cliffhanger. Although the cliffhanger isn't with Finn and Zale, but with what Caol found out about his family. What!?! I will be anxiously waiting for book four!

I left the above review when I originally read this book when it was first released. I've had the opportunity to go back and revisit the story in iye audiobook version and really enjoyed it. I think the narrator is getting better with each book in the series. I can only imagine how difficult it would be to make as many different male voices as he has to. I think I said it in my review of book two, but I love his Douglass voice the best. He nailed that uppity pretentious beta.

With a past he's not proud of and a secret only recently discovered, Dawg's life is about to change when a kindergarten teacher walks into Heaven's Angels Gentlemen's Club, a DAMC business he's run for the past 15 years. With no experience, her dancing sucks, but he can't deny the woman's determination to get the job and, against his better judgement, hires her anyway. While her girl-next-door looks may be good for business, he's not ready for someone like Emma to walk into his life.

Oh, my goodness! I love reading this series, but I am seriously loving listening to it as well. I read Emma and Dawg's story when it first was released but was so excited to visit them again in audio form. The following is the original review I left for the story along with an additional part with my review of the narration.

First off, I have to say that I have loved all the men of the DAMC, even Axel (who's not DAMC). For awhile Diesel has been my favorite of them all. However, Dawg just gave him a run for his money for that top spot. Although I don't see any of the Dirty Angels having a menage that involves another man with a woman, if I could get into a sandwich with Diesel and Dawg...... Whew, boy! Now that's a fantasy!

Emma and Dawg were perfect for each other, right from their first meeting. Emma was desperate and reached out to Dawg for help. Why she was so desperate was her secret. Little did she know, Dawg had a secret of his own. One that no one, not even a single Dirty Angel, knew. His drive to help Emma made Dawg realize he wanted to help himself, too. Together they fell hard and they fell fast for each other. The chemistry between these two was smokin' hot, but the times of tenderness they displayed towards each other absolutely melted my heart.

If you love MC romances and haven't yet checked out the Dirty Angels, I definitely recommend you do! These guys (and their women) will pull you in and not let go. Each story is a standalone but I would recommend reading them in order so you don't miss any of the backstories that show up in later books.

What can I say about Ava Lucas that I haven't in previous of other books I've listened to? She hits it out if the park every time! It's like her voice was made for these DAMC women. And Aiden Snow? Whew, boy, his voice is delicious! I loved these two!

Vincent Lee was a known playboy. He went through models and cheerleaders on a monthly basis. Girls will do anything for his attention. Can you imagine the death stares I got in the office after being selected for the one-on-one? The last thing I need to worry about is falling for a hot football pro. I just need to hold it together and survive the interview without lunging at him. Did I mention he moved the interview to the locker room so he could shower? How am I going to get through this without getting in trouble?

This was a very short story. As with most short stories there wasn't much time for character development so I had a little bit of a hard time connecting to the characters. Overall though, it was cute. If you're looking for a quick story that gets right to the point, you might want to check this one out. It's a good amount of story for a lunch time listen.

As for narration, this was the author's first attempt. There were three things that stood out for me with the narration. The first is that it was narrated very fast. I would suggest, while reading, to take pauses where there's punctuation in the written text. The second, kind of goes along with the first. I think, because it was spoken fast, there wasn't much emotion to inflection. It was hard to tell the different emotions of the characters. Lastly, there wasn't any difference in the female character versus male character voices. This made it harder to follow along with who was talking. These are things I'm sure all new narrators struggle with and, since it's a first attempt, I would definitely be willing to listen to another by this author/narrator.

I read this story when it was first released. I enjoyed it and was looking forward to listening to the audiobook version. My review contains the same one I originally left when I read it and a new addition for the narration.

This is the second book in The Royal Alphas series and, like the first one, I enjoyed this story. I really liked omega Del and felt bad for him at times. Prince Rian took a little longer to like. He kept putting his foot in his mouth without thinking about the impact on Del. Eventually, he realizes he can't and won't deny his feelings. It just took a long time for that to happen. When it did though, I thought his gesture proved to Del what Rian's true feelings were. I also liked Ford, Prince Rian's loyal beta servant. He was perfect for both Rian and Del. The King and Douglass are both a**es. I really disliked them both and am hopeful Douglass, especially, will get what he deserves.

I liked the narration in book one (by the same narrator) but I liked his narration in this one better. Every character in the story is male, and there's a lot of them. The narrator did an excellent job of making it easy to tell when a different character was talking. He especially did a great job with Douglass, a hoity toity nose-in-the-air type of guy. I wanted to slap Douglass while I was reading and that feeling intensified while listening. I'm looking forward to listening to the next in the series.

Right out of the Marines, Slade's first mistake was patching into a club that was headed down a destructive path. His second was rolling into Shadow Valley on a search for answers. He had no plans to patch into another club, even one like the DAMC, and he certainly wasn't looking for an ol' lady. Especially a ball-buster like Diamond, who could singe the hair off a brother's nuts with just a look. DAMC born and bred, Diamond was ready to give up on becoming an ol' lady until the heavily tattooed biker rolled into town on his Harley. Problem is, months later Slade's still a mystery.

Having read all the Dirty Angels MC books and listed to the first five on audiobook, I couldn't wait to listen to Diamond and Slade's story. Just as I suspected, it was fantastic! What follows is my original review of the story with a review of the narration added.

OMG! I freakin' love this series!! It just keeps getting better and better with every story. The men of the Dirty Angels MC are amazing. Just when you think you've found your favorite DAMC alpha male, you read another story, learn a little more about another Dirty Angel, and realize it's really hard to pick a favorite. You want them all! At least that's how it is for me when I finish another new one. Slade's story was no different.

What do you get when you have a woman who wants nothing more than to be an ol' lady and a biker who doesn't want one of his own? You'll have to read this one to find out, but I'll tell ya, the chemistry between Diamond and Slade is explosive! They are perfect for each other and have an undeniable attraction. However, when secrets are revealed (and I mean, "oh s***!"; secrets), will Diamond and Slade's growing relationship survive?

The Dirty Angels MC series books can all be read as standalones. However, I would recommend reading them in order. It helps with understanding timeline and references to events that occur in previous books. Plus, once you read one, especially if you like MC romance (or even if you don't), I think you'll want to read them all anyway. So, I suggest starting with book one. You won't be disappointed.

Ms. Lucas has narrated all but the first book in this series. As always, she does a wonderful job with Diamond, as well as the other characters. This is the first audiobook I've listed to narrated by Aaron Shedlock and I'm hooked. He has a voice that lends itself well to an MC romance. I will definitely be looking for more audiobooks narrated by him.

Though the club blood runs thick in Axel’s veins, he’s despised by them for being a cop. They also hate him because his family turned their back years ago not only on the club but his brother, the president of the Dirty Angels MC. However, he's loved Bella forever, watched her marry the wrong man, one who broke her in almost every imaginable way, and yet she's still the strongest person he knows. Despite their rivaling families, he won't let anything stand in the way of making her his this time. Bella hasn’t known anything other than alpha bikers her whole life.

I had the opportunity to listen to this audiobook, and I jumped at the chance. I read the book when it was first released and fell in love with Bella and Axel. I couldn't wait to hear had the narrators portrayed the story. What follows is my original review of the story along with an added review for the narration.

Let me start out by saying that I absolutely love this series!! The women are all tough as nails and love fiercely. The men are no nonsense alphas who protect their women to the ends of the earth. I was so happy to finally get Axel's story. He's made appearances in the other books but we didn't really know much about him except that he was a cop, Zak's brother, hated by the DAMC, and into Bella. As for the type of man he was or his personality, that has been a mystery..... until now.

Just like the other men in this series, I fell in love with Axel. He was a great guy and fiercely loyal to Bella, no matter who tried to keep them apart. He would go down fighting for her. The way he made Bella believe she was worth fighting for had me tearing up at times. Bella had a horrendous past and vowed to never let herself be vulnerable again. Despite loving Axel, she fought her feelings, knowing there could be heartache in their future. Thankfully they got their HEA, although it wasn't without struggles. I definitely recommend reading Bella and Axel's story to see how they got there.

Once again, Ava Lucas and Teddy Hamilton gave a terrific performance. I was especially drawn to Ms. Lucas' narration of Bella's inner dialogue and thoughts. Bella has such an emotional story and the way she feels about herself is heartbreaking. The narration conveys these emotions beautifully.

Your wedding day is supposed to be the happiest day of your life, right? That's what they say, at least. I went into that day hoping I'd get the happiest day of my life. What I got? The worst. I mean, you really can't get any worse of a day without someone actually dying. So...I may have gotten just a little drunk, and maybe just a tad impetuous...and landed myself in a dive bar somewhere in Alaska, alone, still in my wedding dress, half wasted and heartbroken.

This is the first book I've read or listened to by this author. I got it at a great sale price so I wasn't sure what that meant for the story. The reviews were good so I decided to give it a shot, and I'm so glad I did. This is a wonderful start to what looks like a fantastic series.

Dru and Sebastian were perfect for each other. They are both struggling with recent losses. Dru just caught her fiancé cheating.... on her wedding day. In a drunken move, she hitchhikes on a plane, not knowing where it's going. In a remote town in Alaska, Sebastian is trying to hold it together and keep the family bar afloat after the recent death of his father. Sparks fly when these two lay eyes on each other. Working together, they help one another gain confidence to move forward. Dru is a bada**. She can definitely defend herself, even when her confidence is shaken. Sebastian is the ultimate good guy. He has supported his family, putting his dad's and younger brothers' needs ahead of his own. Not to mention, he is protective of Dru from the beginning. I kept rooting for them to see their potential as a great couple. We also got to meet the rest of the Badd brothers. I can't wait to read or listen to each of their stories!

This was the first time listening to both of these narrators. I thought they did a great job and found them easy to listen to. I did find, as the story went on and more brothers were introduced, it was harder to tell what guy was supposed to be talking. I can only imagine how hard it would be for one narrator to try to do 8+ different male voices but the confusion over who was talking when is the reason for four stars instead of five. Otherwise, I really enjoyed their narration.

I've never been afraid of the dark...but that doesn't mean I wanted to live in it. Maybe everyone wants what they can't have, but I should've thought it over before I unlocked the door to their forbidden world. Number One is mostly silent. He watches me very carefully. Number Two is mostly gentle. But it's the other side of him I like best. Number Three is mostly reserved. It was carnal, it was sensual, and it was erotic. That's it. That's all it was supposed to be. A trip into the dark. A peek into the forbidden. I just didn't expect to like them.

This is the first book I've read and/or listened to by this author. It took me a little while to get into the story. I even stopped listening for awhile, listened to a couple other audiobooks, and then eventually came back to this one. I am glad I didn't give up on it because the story grew on me the more I kept listening. I think what took so long for me was figuring out the true complexity of all the characters; Chella, Smith, Quinn, and Brick. At first, I couldn't connect. But, the more I listened, the more I learned about each one and why they were they way they were and acted they way they did. Take Smith, for example. I really disliked the guy in the beginning. However, I discovered he was actually charitable. There was something to discover about each one. The sex between Chella and each of the guys was pretty hot, too. However, be warned, there is a cliffhanger that sets up the storyline to go into book two.

The narrators were good but, like the story, took a little while for me to warm up to. Each read their own characters' parts well and I enjoyed all their voices. Unfortunately, none of them really distinguished their voices much when they were reading for other characters. It was sometimes easy to get lost on who was supposed to be talking.

With all that said, I did enjoy the story. I will also be looking to listen to book two and three when I get a chance,

Diesel, the MC’s Sergeant at Arms and enforcer, is tasked with not only keeping the club’s property and its members safe but also taking care of “business” when needed. His motto, “live free, die free”, means he sees most women as nags and clingers, and he wants none of that. The last thing he needs is to have one sitting on the back of his bike and trying to dictate his life. Unlike the other DAMC women, Jewel wants to be an ol’ lady. Being born and raised within the club, her goal is to earn her place on back of a brother’s bike. But not just anyone’s.

I read this story when it was first released and immediately decided that Diesel was my new book boyfriend, right then and there. When I got the opportunity to listen to Diesel and Jewel's story on audiobook, I jumped at the chance. What follows is my original review of this story, along with a part added for my review of the narration.

I absolutely love this series! The men of the Dirty Angels MC and their women are fantastic! The guys pull you in and you can't help but love them despite their gruff exterior and stubborn ways. Diesel was no different. Sure, he comes across as a man-whoring jerk, especially in the beginning. While that is partly who he is and can be, it's not all who he is. Part of Diesel pushing Jewel away had to do with being scared for Jewel and wanting to protect her. Yeah, he went about it all the wrong way, but he didn't want her to end up in a situation where she was a target like other ladies had been. To me, this showed how much she was different for him and how much he truly cared about her. I liked Jewel's feisty attitude and how she didn't back down from what she wanted. They had some hot chemistry. I enjoyed this story and am looking forward to Axel's story next. I can't wait to see all the trouble that's going to happen in that one!

I have listened to many audiobooks narrated by Ava Lucas. She always does a fantastic job with individualizing character voices. She's fast becoming my favorite female narrator. This is the first book I've listened to by Wen Ross, but it definitely won't be my last. His voice is so sexy and I could listen to him all day long!! I definitely recommend listening to this entire series!
