In the venerable history of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, only one male has ever been expelled—but Murhder’s insanity gave the Brothers no choice. Haunted by visions of a female he could not save, he nonetheless returns to Caldwell on a mission to right the wrong that ruined him. However, he is not prepared for what he must face in his quest for redemption.

this audible was released today and the first review was a two so I was somewhat wary of what to expect and almost past on purchasing...
I am truly thankful that I chose to go against that one review for this Audible was exceptional !!! Honestly I enjoy the Brotherhood Series especially the storyline; I am just not a fan of the style of Narartion. To people that listen to a large variety of audio book's , I am hoping that makes sense without casting Jim Frangione in any negative manner for he is incredible at his job, if not one of the best Narrator's ever. Again I think it's just a personal preference .
Never the less the storyline is excellent, I love the fact that it grip's you from the first page and JR Ward's describive verbage is laugh out loud awesome!!! So I definitely 👍👍🏻👍🏿

Yara Phillips is a wandering muse. She dates men who need her, but always moves on to something new, never staying in one place for very long. David Lisey is in need of a muse. A talented musician lacking lyrical inspiration. When he first sees her, he knows he's found what he's been seeking. Yara believes she can give David exactly what he needs to reach his full potential: a broken heart.

I must say this story was truly brilliant in every way a Novel could supersede expectations Atheists Who Kneel and Pray did 10 times fold!
Just a bit of a caution; if you are like me and tend to get over emotional 😭 I would recommend having Kleenex close at hand during his “Once in a lifetime “ Excellent Audible!

Resisting an irresistible force wears you down and turns you out. I know - I've been doing it for years. I may not have a musical gift of my own, but I've got a nose for talent and an eye for the extraordinary. And Marlon James - Grip to his fans - is nothing short of extraordinary. Years ago, we strung together a few magical nights, but I keep those memories in a locked drawer and I've thrown away the key. All that's left is friendship and work. I manage his career, but I can't seem to manage my heart.

This was an interesting experience, in a WONDERFUL WAY! It's rare that I listen to a Romance Audible and throughout the Novel I am completely moved by the storyline by the Author's exceptional ability to combine a beautiful romance with wonderfully deep character's that are so easily relatable. Throughout this novel , the Author does such an amazing job making every Character so mainstream, they all seem like every people.
Throughout the book, Kennedy Ryan addresses the REAL LIFE struggles, I personally enjoyed the storyline of the lead female's struggles with insecurity due to the lack of love she desperately seeked throughout the Novel from her Alcoholic Mother and absent Father. I related to her the most on a personal level so I found her personal situation inspiring.
The main message,of course, is what makes this book exceptional!!! I won't ruin the surprise.. To sum up my thoughts, do yourself a favor and 🎶to THIS EXCEPTIONAL AUDIBLE!!
P.S. I am quite curious as to who actually wrote the "Raps" in the book. Specifically Bruised?!? I am an old 🐣but I found it to be pretty🆒🆒🆒❗

Scarlett is always the sensible one: The sober driver. The planner. The one holding your hair back while you're worshiping the porcelain gods. Week-after-week, she visits Jock Row with her friends - the university's hottest party scene and a breeding ground for student athletes. And if keeping her friends out of trouble and guys out of their pants was a sport, she'd be the star athlete. Being a well known jock-blocker gets her noticed for all the wrong reasons; just like that, she's banned from Jock Row. No guy wants a girl around who keeps their jock friends from getting laid.

I adore this author! Whenever I look at the 'New York Times" Top Selling Novel's or what books win the awards yearly I find myself so perplexed with what our society values as a whole as it reflects this in ways as to what we feel worthy of being 'award-winning ' and what we feel is of only. I must lead by stating that those said Novel's are amazing, all of which have mastered the Arts in order to receive such notoriety. Yet the ONE thing that I have yet to notice that I feel every reader out there could benefit from & enjoy is exactly what THIS AUTHOR GIVES ME EACH AND EVERY TIME I READ/LISTEN TO ONE OF HERE AUDIBLES!!!

THIS: a well written story of fictional characters that are easily relatable AND ⭐as you read/ listen you actually LAUGH OUT LOUD and...drum roll p!ease... when you are done with the story you FEEL HAPPY!!!

I'm driven by a force greater than me. Music is in my blood. I don't sing, write songs, or perform in order to get laid. So, I really wasn't into this contest. It's one lucky fan and me plus dinner. I'm not looking forward it. But then, there she is, Paige Miller.... Biting her lip like she wants to run. A wounded bird in nude heels and a purple dress. Problem is my cousin, Ben, saw this beauty first. Never had a woman come between any of us before. Is this the first feud of the Cocker family?

I came across this Audible/e-book purely on a whim and I am so thankful that I did! First, I thoughtfully enjoyed the story and the way this Novel was written so candidly about true to life struggles, specifically with addiction. The story was amazingly balanced; Faleena wrote brilliantly a beautiful story that encompasses everyday true to life struggles, passionate character 's that are easy to relate to, and a once in a lifetime romance that I believe every single human being desires.
I also MUST commend the EXCELLENT performance of the Narrator's Kale Williams ( Wow that's one sexy voice ❤), & Lisa Zimmerman!

Brooklyn James should know better. Born into Hollywood royalty, the brooding prince has a reputation as being a player. A manwhore. A womanizer. Adoring fans are his thing. His best friend's little sister is not. Even thinking about her the way he is isn't cool. Not cool at all. And yet every time she pouts those sexy lips at him, she turns him inside out. Makes him harder than he's ever been. Drives him to the brink of insanity.
