FANTASTIC!! A Must Read!!

Melanie Moreland writes an Alpha Male just the way I like them. Bentley is controlling and head strong. He’s all business and comes across as rigid.
But he’s also a gentleman and has a heart full of love.

Emmy is light and carefree. She has a laid back, go with the flow personality, and shines with life.

A chance encounter brings two complete opposites together but they soon find out they’re only different when it comes to their social status. Bentley lives a life of wealth and high class whereas Emmy is counting pennies to make ends meet.

From the outside looking in, they’re all wrong for one another but when they’re together, Emmy brings out the charming, passionate side of Bentley, and he discovers that underneath all those smiles and jokes, Emmy is a girl who is hurting and just wants to be truly loved.

These characters were absolutely beautiful. Their chemistry was intense but they approached their attraction to one another with a slow-burn, one step at a time allowing their bond to strengthen into something powerful and one of a kind.

This story was a page-turner. It’s sweet and sassy, yet there is an underlying suspense that keeps you guessing.

I listened to this on Audiobook and highly enjoyed every minute of it!!!

John Lane was the PERFECT narrator for Bentley. His voice is strong and solid and ridiculously enjoyable.

Maxine Mitchell was the narrator for Emmy and gave a beautiful performance. She’s passionate and emotional. You can feel her connection with Emmy and the story.

These narrators together was the perfect treat. They complimented each other and were on point from beginning to end. Two of my favorite narrators!!!

I devoured this book.
This is going to be a FANTASTIC series.

Highly Recommend.

BAM😉😊

I know you don't like emojis Bentley but it's the emoji era, deal with it😏. Fantastic story, beautifully written and narrated. Love Rigid, Freddie and the rest of the gang. Hardly any angst, lots of humor, good banter, and friendship. It's just a happy family. Add a little danger and mystery to complete it. Will be listening to the rest of the series, I have a vested interest in Aiden and Maddox story. They need their HEA too. Get this book and the others in the series, you will not be disappointed, I've loved every Melanie Moreland book I've ever read.

I liked a lot of this one. Bentley showed true growth. The mystery was too easy to guess but it wasn't bad. I hope Aiden doesn't push away cami a lot.

Likable

The story was typical Rich man meets poor girl changes her life forever with a little drama in between. It's not bad but nothing I haven't listen to before.

Cutely funny

Sweet and cute, the story draws you in with laughs. Enjoyable characters. Light intrigue to diversify the story. Introduction of characters for the rest of the series.

Only complaint is about the performance. There isn’t enough pause between scenes, so it’s confusing and jarring when suddenly it’s different characters in a different place/time. I don’t care for the female performer’s male voice, but it doesn’t really detract from the performance too much.

Lovely Story

I really loved the story. Melanie Moreland draws you in with the characters back stories and through the plot of BENTLEY. John Lane and Maxine Mitchell made the Audio Book come to life. 5 Stars

Good Story

Another enjoyable listen. Looking forward to Melanie’s next story. John Lane is brilliant with his reading and characters he portrays but I’m afraid Maxine does not suit this series of books, her characters sound too similar, even with other books. As far as the story goes, I’m becoming a fan of Melanie Moreland and her style.

author didn't give the alphas much credit

being billionaires I though they would heave figured it out earlier.
but great to see the alpha female holdiing het own.
the female narrator, I found didnt portray the alpha female like I felt the author wanted her to be. the voice was wet to grown up and lacked the innoncene she needed.
the Melle narrator did a better job I'm surprised to say.
goodt little story....short and sweet and oh if only we has billionaires like him fellow gals!!!!!

Good story : wrong narrator

Really enjoyed the story but narrators made the characters sound 20 years older which was off putting. It’s fine tho.
