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.

Down & Dirty: Slade (Dirty Angels MC, Book 6)

Having read all the Dirty Angels MC books and listed to the first five on audiobook, I couldn't wait to listen to Diamond and Slade's story. Just as I suspected, it was fantastic! What follows is my original review of the story with a review of the narration added.

OMG! I freakin' love this series!! It just keeps getting better and better with every story. The men of the Dirty Angels MC are amazing. Just when you think you've found your favorite DAMC alpha male, you read another story, learn a little more about another Dirty Angel, and realize it's really hard to pick a favorite. You want them all! At least that's how it is for me when I finish another new one. Slade's story was no different.

What do you get when you have a woman who wants nothing more than to be an ol' lady and a biker who doesn't want one of his own? You'll have to read this one to find out, but I'll tell ya, the chemistry between Diamond and Slade is explosive! They are perfect for each other and have an undeniable attraction. However, when secrets are revealed (and I mean, "oh s***!"; secrets), will Diamond and Slade's growing relationship survive?

The Dirty Angels MC series books can all be read as standalones. However, I would recommend reading them in order. It helps with understanding timeline and references to events that occur in previous books. Plus, once you read one, especially if you like MC romance (or even if you don't), I think you'll want to read them all anyway. So, I suggest starting with book one. You won't be disappointed.

Ms. Lucas has narrated all but the first book in this series. As always, she does a wonderful job with Diamond, as well as the other characters. This is the first audiobook I've listed to narrated by Aaron Shedlock and I'm hooked. He has a voice that lends itself well to an MC romance. I will definitely be looking for more audiobooks narrated by him.
*I was provided a copy of this audiobook and voluntarily chose to leave a review. This is my honest review.*

A Diamond in the rough!

I read this book and enjoyed it but after listening to it, I fell in love! The raw emotions and life, Ava Lucas and Aaron Shedlock breathe into this book is incredible. I could not stop listening! I felt every emotion for Diamond and Slade, good, bad, and steamy! Seeing the sassy badass Diamond find her soft and sweeter side with Slade was a fun story! The secrets and questions that were answered and revealed in this book really give you more insight into the DAMC universe! As always with Jeanne St James, another wonderfully written book!

Damn!

I think Aaron Shedlock is one of my new top favorite male narrators. Slade and Diamond's book was so well done. I absolutely love their story! Ava Lucas and Aaron Shedlock did a remarkable job, same as all the other audio books from this fantastic author.

Absolutely love this series.

This series keeps getting better and better. Although the rivalry between the Warriors and the DAMC is still ongoing, you get more info on what might have started the war. Unfortunately the information may just be the one thing that could tear Slade and Diamond apart. Slade is not sure where his position in the MC is and Diamond just wants to belong to someone, but can the two overcome the obstacles the past has put in place? Or will true love conquer all? With an emotional storyline and narrators that are just perfect you cannot help but fall in love with this audio-book. I could not stop listening and I cannot wait for more in the series.

Diamond and Slade

I have read all of the DAMC books, listening to them on audio just brings them to another level. JSJ has a way of making you fall in love with the characters with her writing, the audio version just brings them to life. If your a fan of the DAMC series do yourself a favor and listen to the audio versions.

Fast Paced and Sexy!

This is another exhilarating, fast paced and sexy story in the Dirty Angels MC series. Slade has earned a place in the DAMC but he isn't sure it was the right decision, especially with a distraction like Diamond. She is bold and brassy and he can't stop thinking about her. Diamond wants Slade but can't wait for the mercurial biker to make her his. When she decides to move on, she and the other MC women maneuver a private party for Diamonds 30th birthday, Slade is beside himself. As they figure things out between them, there are still outside forces that threaten the safety of the club and all their families. Slade himself has a shadow cast over his loyalty that leads to some suspenseful plot twists. This raw and gritty story is riveting and heartbreaking at times and took my breath away. Other times it was funny, angsty, and very hot and steamy. Narrators, Ava Lucas, and Aaron Shedlock easily moved between these extreme emotions, making us feel everyone of them. Lucas brought the strong, independant, yet vulnerable, Diamond to life beautifully. Shedlock's voice was perfect for the arrogant, dirty talking, Slade. They made a great team bringing this fast paced, sexy MC story to life.

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.

Diamond finally found the one who could tame her!


Wow! I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this series and it keeps getting better with every book. Slade wasn’t born in DAMC like so many of the other members including Diamond. As soon as he patched in she tried to sink her claws into him but he only allowed her to so much until he pushed her away. Slade wasn’t even sure DAMC was exactly where he wanted to be. However by the end he knew it was where he belonged. Everyone knew Diamond as the club B and no one wanted to claim her until she opened up her softer side to Slade and he could no longer resist. After their past comes back to haunt them they both had to decide what they wanted out of each other. Diamond fought for what she wanted and Slade realized he wanted the same thing. I loved these two and I can’t wait to hear more about them!

Friend or Foe

Spades story had me on the edge of my seat. Ava Lucas and Aaron Shedlock, do a great job of bringing these characters to life.

Once again another installment of the DAMC books brought to life.

Listening to Slade & Diamonds Story has you on the edge of your seat. Not knowing whose side everyone is on, kept me glued to this book.

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.

Great story

Where to start? I have read the whole series multiple times and heard so many good things about listening to the stories through audible so started last year and have been impressed with each and everyone of them, Jeanne St James is an amazing writer and each person chosen to narrate her stories do a great job of getting the emotions across.
Ava is just brilliant with great voices for each character.
Aaron has the perfect voice for Slade, definitely what I pictured while reading the book myself, strong and deep.
I love Slade and Diamond, the have a nitty, gritty romance with hardships and trouble to overcome.
Slade doesn't want an ol' lady and Diamond has always wanted to be one.
Would love to say more but can't as don't want to give away spoilers for those that haven't read or listened to the books.
Can't wait for the next book.
Definitely a must read and listen.

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
