Rescued by Tordin audiobook cover art

Interesting story, but can't listen to the voice!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Listening to this book was a waste. I'm pretty sure the story is decent, but I actually had to stop the recording a few times to get over the "cliché gay" voices for the men and the "back country bitch" voices for the ladies. The narrator ruined this book for me.

Would you recommend Rescued by Tordin to your friends? Why or why not?

Recommend, no! But if someone showed interest I would point them to reading the book rather than the audio version!

Would you be willing to try another one of Audrey Lusk’s performances?

Her voice might be well suited for a performance where a man reads the counter parts and makes it sound somewhat more natural? I might give it a try, but I wouldn't pay for it until I'm convinced I'll finish listening to the story, rather than turn off the audio book half way through because I can't stand it anymore.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

It's not the genre I would go to the movies for, so probably not.

What did you love best about Hunter's Claim?

Here comes a possessive male with - admittedly - outdated ideas about the position of a woman in the world and collides with the very self sufficient and independent Jesse. So different, yet still so similar in their wants and needs

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

Having the book read by a man has made the whole story more focused on the male perspective. While both characters have their turns, the male part is brought "closer to home" by David's "chocolate-syrup" voice

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

One of my favorite scenes in the book is the moment when Hunter finds Jesse and her sisters when they are being attacked by a group of men. The scene is realistic and instead of the usual fainting female lead, this one shows weakness as well as strength which is very in character and still very different.

The story is good and quirky. A few twists here and some misunderstandings there and voila, another great story line by Paige!
However- this book was performed in a rather unfortunate way. The reader has a great voice and reads steady and comfortable, but the voice just doesn't fit. The book has male and female view points which I can barely tell apart due to the voice being exactly the same ( not even a try to make the voice deeper) dialogues between the couple are hard to follow and - this might just be me- listening to a granny type voice reading erotic scenes out loud isn't really hot, but rather uncomfortable.

If you like motorcycle club novels, alpha males and a little bdsm, then this is a must read! Great storyline and the way it is read is awesome! When a male speaks, it is actually read by a guy. Took some getting used to, but it really just turns me on :-)

The story continues and Merit has to fight again. Her feelings, her conscience and her ever growing circle of friends make her life seem as if it is duty bound. Yet again, Merit continues to be herself and isn't pushed like a round into the square, others want her to be.

The book was ok. The female lead is a whimp and inconsistent. All in all its a passable way to spend time. Not as well developed as the first book

Was a little disappointed by the strong woman who suddenly crumbles. The characters aren't as well thought through as in the first book and the story is a little slow in the beginning. Good book non the less.

This story has a sad , almost depressive start but builds up into something beautiful! The readers are doing a great job and I almost melted listening to 'Axel's' voice - so hot! Only the volume varies between too quiet and then again almost booming even with the same reader speaking.

Compared to the first book in this series, this one seems emotional but not as exciting. Still a good read/listen though.
