Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Shadow Valley where the Dirty Angels MC rules. Get ready to get Down & Dirty because this is Slade's story...

He thought he liked easy. Until she showed him easy was boring.

Right out of the Marines, Slade's first mistake was patching into a club that was headed down a destructive path. His second was rolling into Shadow Valley on a search for answers. He had no plans to patch into another club, even one like the DAMC, and he certainly wasn't looking for an ol' lady. Especially a ball-buster like Diamond, who could singe the hair off a brother's nuts with just a look.

DAMC born and bred, Diamond was ready to give up on becoming an ol' lady until the heavily tattooed biker rolled into town on his Harley. Problem is, months later Slade's still a mystery. He never talks about himself or his past, and Diamond wants answers. But she's not quite ready for what's uncovered: secrets that could very well implode the club. It doesn't just bring Slade's loyalty into question, but forces Diamond to make a choice she doesn't want to make. A choice that affects not only Slade, but the whole MC.

Note: This audiobook can be listened to as a standalone. It includes lots of steamy scenes, biker slang, cursing, some violence and, of course, an HEA. If you like alpha males who like to take charge, this audiobook is for you.

Twisty!

Just when I think I have a favorite I listen to the next in the series and I am blown away all over again.
Slade and Diamond have been two characters I have wanted to get an HEA for a while.
Diamond, her name suits her because she seems like she is kind of cold-hearted, b - i - t - c - h - y if you will but that never really bothered me in fact, I loved that about her.
Slade always seemed kind of aloof, and about the sweet b - u - t - t - s. We didn’t really get much backstory from him until now and what we do learn made me love his character that much more.

The banter is fantastic; they eye each other like the other one is made of the finest chocolate. Yet Slade holds her at arm’s length until he doesn’t then look out your ears will be on FIRE, in the most delicious of ways!

I love the birthday scene; it is probably my favorite scene in this book. Oh, how the Alpha males become possessive I love it.
The twist you never see coming will blow your mind, I won’t give you more than that. I just loved it.
Also, the friendship between Crow and Di is one of my favorite relationships in this whole series and I can’t wait to see Crow get his HEA.

The Narration. OH MY GOD, Ava, girl your man voice sweet baby Jesus you gave me shivers.
Aaron is one of my favorite male narrators so I was excited to listen, but an MC book... YES, PLEASE can we have more Aaron as a Motorcycle club man PLEASEEEEE.

Diamond and Slade were so damn good.

Diamond and Slade were so damn good. Diamond was born to be a DAMC Old Lady, she just hadn't found her old man yet. Slade didn't want anything to hold him down, he was fine with no strings. It took a lot of pushing and pulling and playing dirty but damn when things between them heated it was incredible. There were some things revealed that were total shockers and I can't wait to see where it goes! Loved Ava and Aaron in this audio!

Great Story and narration

The plot of this story was so good . As soon as I thought I had it all figured out there was another twist . Really enjoyed this story and the banter between Slade and Diamond. Both Aaron and Ava did a fabulous job narrating this story. Definitely a great listen

It's explosive

Your engine will be revving with this emotional, raw, and explosive audiobook! Slade and Diamond are perfect for each other although they have a few hurdles to get through. Slade is not looking for an old lady and the last person he would ever consider is Diamond because of her no holds barred personality that sometimes has her acting like a shrew. By comparison, all Diamond wants is to be a biker’s old lady. However, she would never consider any of the existing brothers and has hopes that something could happen with Slade. These two act like two animals stalking one another and it is only a matter of time before one launches first. The tension that is felt as the narrators bring the words to life is fervid. This book is full of drama, steamy and explicit scenes, and twists and turns that will have you gasping for breath; articulated beautifully by Ava Lucas and Aaron Shedlock.

Slade and Diamond!

Slade is a fully patched member of the Dirty Angels MC however little is known about his past. He has been attracted to Diamond from the beginning however he is not looking for love or a relationship and any man that hooks up with her had better be prepared for her fiery ways.

Diamond’s father is a member of the MC and was raised by the club when he ended up in prison when she was a baby. She has no problem telling anyone exactly what she thinks which can be a bit of problem as most men back away from her vibrant personality.

Slade has done his best to keep his distance but her 30th birthday changes everything and the chemistry between them erupts. Just when you think they might have a future the twists and secrets of the past create an uproar that nobody could see coming.

I love this series and this book is no exception. Slade and Diamond were perfect together and now I need Crow’s story as soon as possible. The audio narration of this story was great as both of the narrators were the perfect choice for these characters.

Fabulous narration, great addition to the series!

As always this is a standalone so you don't need to have previously listen or read any of the books in the series. I feel like it might help. I'm definitely missing a few in this series so there were characters or things mentioned that I wasn't 100% on. But not knowing all the details didn't detract from the overall story.

Dimond has wanted to be an old lady forever. She's born Dirty Angel and there's nowhere else she wants to be. Now she just has to find a man that is worthy of her and can't put up with her attitude. Slade on the other hand is a bit of a newcomer with a mysterious past. Ater a little bit of pushing each other away they finally come together and it is explosive! Some very steamy scenes. Of course the overarching storyline of the series with the Warriors comes into play causing issues. Some secrets are revealed that do not belong to Dimond or Slade and definitely makes it so that you're anticipating future books.

Ava Lucas is a favorite of mine and her performance did not disappoint. Aaron Shedlock was new to me and I will definitely be looking for more of his work

Big bad Slade and a precious Diamond

Jealous much Slade, is my first thought as this story unfolds and you sit and watch Diamond with the male strippers, I listen to your intermonologue, at her birthday party, then you act on your attraction. Way to go.
It’s a shame that history has to get in the way and of course the Shadow warriors have to cause trouble and evoke more old wounds, plus memories better off forgotten are brought to the surface. When you think there would be animosity between the two the bond only gets stronger.
Love the way Jeanne St. James brings these two together, love even with all the revelations there is only love. Brings this couple to the top of my list. Also I have to give a big shoutout to the narrators Ava Lucas and Aaron Sherlock way to go, you brought Diamond and Slade into living color if only in my minds eye. Thank you.

Highly recommend

This book is fantastic. I love the Sex with an edge to it. These two characters are so perfect for each other! Great storyline, amazing characters and it leads into the next book perfectly. Well written as usual from Jeanne, and a brilliant performance from both narrators.

Di and Slade are awesome together!

Diamond is a biker girl all the way and she has a b&€chy attitude. Slade is a full member of the DAMC but he is a rolling stone. Together they are explosive but Slade has been keeping his distance. He doesn’t wanna be attached to anyone. Diamond just might change that! But in all the sexual tension there are also secrets between them. He is looking for something that he keeps to himself. And D is still suspicious of him. I really enjoyed this book. The series has so much potencial and every member has an interesting story but I think Slade’s and Diamond’s is the most twisted yet. I loved Diamond proving Slade and everyone else wrong. The end was a funny surprise!
The narrators are sooo good. They made the sexy pull through the story.

On Fire!

This is the first of this author that I have listened to and it makes me wish I had discovered her work sooner! I also wish I had read the other books in the series. It did pretty well as a standalone but I think it would have been so much better if I had gotten to know the other characters that are featured in this book too. I also think the events going on with the rival gang would have been easier for me to follow. Regardless, I though Slade and Diamond's relationship was super s. e. x. y. The author writes some very steamy scenes that are VERY well written. We also discover how Diamond and Slade's backgrounds are connected. I really enjoyed this author's writing and diving into this MC series!

I haven't listened to Ava Lucas before, but she has been on my list of narrators I want to listen to for a while now, and she did not disappoint! I have had the pleasure of listening to Aaron Shedlock as a narrator before and his voice is still super s. e. x. y and he is still one of my favorite Male narrator voices. These two set this super hot fast paced romance on fire. Absolutely great narration that made this an easy one setting listen.

I received a review copy at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Hot!

With fantastic narration performances from Ava Lucas and Aaron Shedlock, Slade's story in the Down and Dirty series is a great listen from start to finish. These growling, hard bodied and bossy men slowly finding love, is such fun. In Slade the dynamic between him and Diamond, is electric! As always Ava Lucas brings her warmth to the part as well as capturing the feistiness which is an intrinsic part of Di's character. Her voice range is excellent, pulling off the needed depth for male voices while also bringing lightness to the females. Aaron Shedlock makes a great Slade, again having a voice which is stong and expressive. Both narrators speak with clarity and great pace. A 5* story and audio.

Just gets better and better.x

I am in love with this series, I wish I had time to sit and read as I just want so much more but I am so busy that audio is my only option so I will have to wait patiently. I want so much to have a favourite character in this series but I just love them all so much I can't choose. Slade and Diamond are such a great couple they are on an equal footing in all aspects and they are good for each other. This book has some great twists and turns and you find out some painful things at the end so I can't wait to see where the story goes. Jeanne St James just brings the MC to life and you feel a part of the story. I had a few almost tear moments in this one.

Ava Lucas is just amazing her male voice is so gravely and dark just perfect. I love her voice could listen all day. Aaron Shedlock is one of my go to narrators I adore his voice and his story telling so together they are hot to trot.

I enjoy that in these books you get to follow up with some past characters and hearing some good news from some. I can't wait to have all the books in the series so I can start from the beginning again and listen one after the other.x

Diamond and Slade!

I have been waiting for Slade's story and found this just so satisfying! Slade and Diamond have been circling each other for a while, and now after watching Diamond at her birthday party, Slade finally gives in and gives her his present! These two both are strong willed and full of attitude. Diamond can be harsh at times, but Slade has found a way to tame her and these two have found their way. I have to say, I was looking forward to this book because I was unsure of Slade. He has been a wild card in my mind, showing up as he did, coming to the aid of the women and being patched so quickly, my hope was he was a good man. Diamond, as true to her name, is hard and sometimes cold and biting, but she has a warm heart and her loyalty and love run deep. This combination makes for a hot and volatile couple and I loved every minute of their banter and passion. The best part for me about this series, besides the great characters is the underlying stories. This one has a twist in it that surprised me and made me wonder how it would play out! The suspense, the anguish and realization of what life has dealt is Slade and the Club is captivating, keeping me on the edge to see the outcome. While Slade may not be my favorite hero of the Dirty Angels, I think this couple together may be! They are so well matched it makes you love them all the more.

Jeanne St James is so particular about picking her narrators for this series, and I am so happy she is. Each one is specific to the role and this one could not have been more perfect. Aaron Shedlock as Slade is amazing. His narration is so natural, and gives Slade that edge so you know when he speaks, you know he means what he says. The alpha sound is slightly growlie, but he also brings that emotional side in when needed and your heart melts. Ava Lucas is nothing short of incredible. Her sultry voice and spunky attitude is Diamond. No other could bring the women of this MC to life like she does, you can tell she knows each character and with each inflection and voice creates the most intricate cast for us to follow. I love this team!
