Publisher's Summary

All Maxine needs is a name.

Just one piece of information could help Maxine mend a past mistake and let go of her broken past. That name she needs? Her father's murderer. Not because she harbors any tender feelings toward the bastard who beat her mother into a coma. She's desperate to know his last words.

She's steadily clawing down obstacles one lie, one trap at a time...until she encounters a brick wall without a single chink in it. Blu, the enforcer guarding the Blackwater Renegades MC's front door. A tattooed, mohawked mountain of muscle whose ice-blue gaze sets her belly on fire.

Blu's past shadows his future.

After fighting for his freedom in an underground fighting pit, Blu traded wrapped knuckles for a Blackwater Renegades cut. Now, he puts his bruised fists to good use against rival gangs.

When he's tasked with seducing Maxine, the enigmatic newcomer, to uncover her motives, Blu discovers there's more to this dagger-glaring, snark-spewing beauty than meets the eye. They share a deep well of unresolved pain that could make him drop his guard...and question his loyalties to the only people he's ever known as family.

Fair warning: This is not a book for listeners who can't handle cliffhangers.

Patrick's voice for Blue!!!

First of all, I love Inger Iversen's books. The road to HEA is never easy for her main characters. If they even get that. A lot of the times they are HFN. I had already read Blackwater Deceiver when it first came out and fell in love with the characters of these shorts. The Blackwater series is kind of a spin-off from another one of Inger's series that I loved. None of the characters are ever perfect. That is perfection in itself. Blu and Maxine were both flawed but shared an attraction they couldn't act on. Both have pasts that they found hard to live with and I am as hooked on this story as I was with Mia and Smokey's story. The narrators of this story. both Patrick and Adenrele did a great job bringing Blu and Maxine/Gypsy's characters to life. But, oh my goodness, Patrick's voice was so sexy and smooth and it sounded like that is exactly how Blu would sound if you heard him speak. Both narrators were awesome. All in all, this was a great listen and I am glad I was fortunate enough to be given this book for my honest review.

Inger Square Up!

Ma’am!! You got me hook, line , and sinker! I’m ready to fight because this story is so intriguing and the questions just keep piling up. So I’m waiting on the rest of the story like you owe me money lol. Guess that means you did your job well.

Great

I really liked this book and would recommend it. It had a great storyline and sexual storylines. I can't wait to hear more of their story and I wish this book was a movie or TV show. Really liked those BWMCs and I bet all their stories are going to be hot. I hope all of the stories are on audible.

Great MC Romance!

This is the second book in the Blackwater Shorts Series, a MC Romance. I haven't read the first book yet. Maxine and Blu are both strong and complex characters, and they share a sizzling chemistry. This story is short, but well developed, intriguing, and filled with secrets and action. The story ends with a cliffhanger, and now I can't wait for the next book in the Series. Patrick Zeller and Adenrele Ojo did a great job with the narration.

Such a great story!

I don't often listen to audiobooks because the narrators can sometimes ruin the feel of a book. That was not the case with this book. First things first, the story... Blu is such a complex character. I was completely entranced in his backstory and am excited about the possibility of learning more about him. Maxine is an equally complex character with strong motivations and a relentless drive to go after what she wants. The two of them together … FIRE Please keep in mind that this is a short. It was just enough to get me hooked and ready for a full length novel. I really want to be able to spend more time with the characters and see where the story takes us. The narrators did a good job with the pace and tone and didn't distract me from what was going on with the book. The only criticism I have is that foreign accents aren't for everyone. When the narrator tried to do the Spooky (Irish) character's voice she sounded more like a mix of Jamaican and something else. Overall though it was a great performance and I look forward to listening to the rest of the series.

Really good story

I enjoyed this first part of Maxine and Blu’s story. I understand her need to invent the deception. However, Blu gave her more and now it seems that she found something only to lose it.

Intrigued!

Inger has done it again. This was a well developed and written story. Just enough information in the beginning to get you hooked and just enough left out at the end to make you need to come back!
