Detective Blake Knight has been undercover before. But an assignment to bust a steroid ring running out of Dallas' elite male strip club means his new cover will be nothing but his own taut muscles and oiled skin. It's one thing for the tough, by-the-books agent to take down bad guys with his gun. Facing a rowdy crowd in only a G-string is another story...especially in front of his new boss, gorgeous, mysterious Reese Landon.

I chose this book because Callie Dalton and Teddy Hamilton narrate it. The story wasn’t as strong as I would have liked, but there were some interesting twists and turns. I am still giving it 4 stars. It wasn’t bad, I was just expecting more sizzle.

I think for sure it must've been a dream because there's no way a guy could look like that, touch me like that, and be so in tune with me on every known level and disappear, leaving me with nothing but a good story to tell my friends. When he walks into my bar three months later, everything I thought I knew and what we'd had disappears in the blink of an eye and the blinding light of the three-carat diamond on his fiancee's hand.

This one caught me off guard. I ended up enjoying the story more than I expected I would. These are two of my favorite narrators, which made a difference. I recommend it.

I don’t even know where to start. I almost didn’t finish the first book because it started out so dark. I soldiered on because it came highly recommended. When I got to the end, I had no choice but to continue with this one. How the author went from dark human trafficking (it really wasn’t) to the HEA that is the end of this book is beyond me. I’m still trying to wrap my brain around it. Please tell me there’s going to be a third book!!!

Of the 4 books in this series, this is by far my favorite. I read all 4 books before I listened to this one. I was not expecting the emotional roller coaster that I experienced with Sean & Anna's story when I read the book. I experienced that same emotion, and more, when listening to the audio. Jacob Morgan & Elena Wolfe ARE Sean & Anna. As soon as the first words were spoken, I felt the lump in my throat, and it stayed there until the end. We all make decisions we regret, at some point in our lives. We don't always get the chance to fix them. Knowing there was an HEA at the end got me through their story. And oh, what a story. While all of these books can be read as stand-alones, to truly appreciate Jayne's writing, I recommend the entire series--in order. It gets better with each book!!!

Evie: I met him in a snowstorm.... We spent 48 hours trapped in the back of his pickup truck. We fought. We touched. We fell. Hard. Storm: She literally crashed into my life.... The last thing I wanted was a relationship. Especially with a quirky chick who drove me insane. But something about her got under my skin, and into my heart. And I had to have her. All of her. Now. Falling in love in the back of a truck, just the two of us, was easy. Dealing with psycho fans, jealous exes, and demons from the past...not so easy.

The club comes first. I've lived by those words my whole life - assumed I'd die by them, too, and I never had a problem with that. My Reaper brothers took my back and I took theirs, and it was enough. Then I met her. Tinker Garrett. She's beautiful, she's loyal, and she works so damned hard it scares me sometimes. She deserves a good man - one better than me. I can't take of her yet, because the club still needs me. There's another woman, another job, another fight just ahead.

I have listened to this book at least 4 times, and I plan to listen plenty more. It is a beautiful love story--period. I fail to see the "taboo" that I have seen mentioned. The relationship between Toren & Kenzie is only what others named it. She is NOT his niece, he is NOT her uncle. How perfect to grow up with the person you'll spend the rest of your life with--to know someone that deeply. Definitely one of my top five.

The promo I saw on FB for this book said it was "based on this guy" (or something similar). "This guy" was Brock O'Hurn in an open red plaid flannel, swinging an axe. I am a huge BO fan and jumped at the chance to spend 4+ hours with him in a steamy romance novel. Other than the physical description of Luke Dawson, there is nothing that remotely resembles BO--in my mind. There's plenty of sex, if that's what you want, but the story and the narration are both flat. Sorry. I'm glad it was part of the Romance Package--otherwise, I'd be requesting a refund. I really, really wanted to like it.

After moving to Austin following six months of unemployment back home, Iris Taylor knows she should be glad to have landed a job so quickly... even if the business is owned by a member of the same motorcycle club her estranged father used to belong to. Except Dex Locke might just be the biggest jerk she's ever met. He's rude and impatient, and he doesn't know how to tell time. And the last thing they ever expected was each other.
