Publisher's Summary

After spending the last 10 years in prison, Zak, former DAMC president, has a few priorities: to reconnect with his “brothers”, to get drunk, and to get laid. Not necessarily in that order. When he spots a stunning woman in the clubhouse and mistakes her for one of the club’s strippers, those priorities get a bit skewed.

Sophie has no idea what happened to her life. One minute, she’s totally focused on building her bakery business, and the next? She’s delivering a cake to the Dirty Angels motorcycle club’s “homecoming” celebration for a member who just got out of prison. Little does she know, baking that cake will change the rest of her life, not to mention make her a target for a rival MC. Normally, Sophie wouldn’t be caught dead with a man like Zak, a tattooed, ex-con, badass biker.

When a decades-old territory war threatens to rip them apart, Zak will do anything to keep Sophie, his club, and the town safe. But being from two different worlds, the threat they’re under may not be worth the risk.

Captivating

From start to finish the author and narrators drew me in and kept my attention. I really love Ms. St James’s style of writing, she packs such a punch into her characters that they almost seem to be real.

Zak and Sophie are meant to be. I loved how Sophie was feisty and wasn’t afraid to stand up for her beliefs. Will Sophie be strong enough to become an old lady or will circumstances tear them apart? Sophie is one of those characters that is so easy to relate too, I absolutely adore her.

This story flowed well and was full of drama, humour and some mighty fine chemistry between Zak and Sophie that absolutely burned up my ears.

The narrators did a fabulous job bringing this this story to life and I was entranced.

Super Sexy

Zak is getting realised from prison and there is a welcome home party. Zak mistakes Sophie for a stripper and ends up falling for her. However it takes awhile to convince Sophie. They have to go through a lot of ups and downs. The narrators Sean Crisden and Ava Lucas are awesome and bring the characters to life!

Very good MC Series!!

I've listened to every book in the series and what I like most is the author had the foresight to select some of the best romance male narrators for each respective biker. There's Teddy, Wen, Aaron, Aiden, CJ and now Sean. Jeanne St. James is one of my favorite authors and an automatic credit when I see a new release whether it's this series or another series. And Ava Lucas definitely holds her own as the women these men love. For me, this is one of the better biker romance series and looking forward to Dex's, Linc's and Crows story on audible. I also double dip....I read then listen...😄 These stories are edgy, raw, sexy and definitely dirty. They're not for everyone but they do entertain and thats why I listen...to be entertained.

Loved this !!!

This is a great start to the Dirty Angels Series... I love Zac.... he's rough around the edges, but he's had a tough go of it. His family has never been there for him. I love when he meets Sophie. The chemistry between these two is exciting and HOT.. You need to check this series out..

The Beginning

This was weird to not listen to a book 1 of a series first but do it now after I think 8 but I am glad I did it this way personally because I knew the players and how some things are going to turn out. But it was more than just that the back and forth between Zak and Axel makes more sense now that I have the beginning. But I also love how hard Zak falls. Was this because of how long he spent away and he was ready or was it fate who knows all I know is I love the gruff exterior and the big soft underbelly. Those are my favorite heroes.

I really enjoyed Sophie’s attitude in the beginning and how she crumbles too. ;) It’s mutual no matter how it started it was fun to listen to her fall in love with probably the last man she ever would have seen herself with. I loved that she stands up for herself no matter what she feels that shows strength even if I wanted to shake her and say “can’t you see it's hurting him!”

Fantastic series I can’t wait for more.
The narration hello is amazing Ava lordy be that woman’s voice is … I have no words it’s that good no joke her male voice is delicious and if that makes me a creepy lady so be it. Once you listen for yourself you will get me. Sean Crisden is truly a perfect Zak his voice is exactly how I would imagine Zak’s to be.

An amazing start to a fantastic series!

Wow! I had forgotten just how great Zak's book was, it's been a while since I read it. Zak and Sophie's story was full of emotions, some humor, tons of steam, and action. A case of mistaken identity lands Sophie in Zak's bed his first day home from prison and he gets hooked. lol. Jeanne St. James has such an amazing way of writing that pulls you into the story, makes you feel like you're living it. Then the fan-freaking-tastic narrators pull you in even more! Ava Lucas and Sean Crisden did a fabulous job narrating Sophie and Zak, really making you feel the emotion.

Love this series

This was an awesome audible book about finding love out of your comfort zone. I have read it in paper and absolutely loved the story but to have the voices in your head, it comes alive and you feel like you are part of the action. Sophie only wanted to get her bakery off the ground. Zak wanted to get back to his life and put his jail sentence behind him. Who knew that delivering a cake to his welcome home party would end up with an instant attraction and the best sex of her life? This book had it all - lovable characters that the listener becomes an instant cheerleader for, a plot filled with more twists and turns than a rollercoaster and emotions that have the reader going from laughing to crying and perfect narrators for the characters. Another great book from Jeanne St. James. I cannot wait for more from this series.

get ready to fall in love!

read the whole series of DAMC books but listening to them... is just wow! narrators are amazing. really puts that extra bit of life into the story if thats even possible. and jeanne, the way she writes just has you hooked from the get go, has such a talent in bringing each character to life as well as setting the scene so easily but in such great detail, when i read her books its like watching a film! My fav part has to be the way Sophie makes Z work hard to win her over and he doesn't give up on her, a real alpha male with a soft centre for the women he wants and the steamy scenes... my oh my! is all i can say!

How it all begins!

The brotherhood of a motorcycle club along with the alpha males always is a draw for me. Jeanne St. James writes this story with a group of men with a strong bond, a very protective alpha male and a strong-willed yet vulnerable heroine giving this MC book all the qualities it needs to keep me listening! Zak is fresh out of jail after serving 10 years for a crime he didn't commit. Sophie is delivering the cake to the clubhouse for his celebration. And from there we begin a steamy, stormy, push-pull of a relationship. St. James weaves together the feeling of instant love with this couple, and how the stigma and danger of a motorcycle club can effect the couple. Authors always give vulnerability to characters, but I was entranced with the way that Zak, this super over protective, sexy, strong, alpha male is brought to his knees by his love for Sophie. You can feel his emotions running, and it is refreshing! I also love the family feel of the members, they always had each other's back and sets up our future stories of this series. I am looking forward to getting to know the others better!(and I hope that Zak's brother though not a member has his story too!)

This dually narrated book will make your heart smile. Ava Luca is amazing as Sophie. She gives Sophie an innocence in the beginning that is totally believable, and as she becomes Zak's woman, the change in her is evident just with the voice. She is confident and strong, and Lucas easily translates this with her inflections. Sean Crisden as Zak is the perfect fit. His smooth as silk voice gives Zak an alpha feel, a definite leader from the minute he comes in. Together Lucas and Crisden flow with passion and the chemistry with Zak and Sophie is unbeatable. Loved this dual narration!

hmmmmm

this author writes like lani Lynn vale..an author I struggle to read. everything jumps
along way to quick. the heroine, I my opinion is made out to be dumb by knowing absolutely no lingo or slang at all....she's in her 30's for God's sake she can't be that naive. then just about every chapter she keeps asking herself how did this happen....just about drove me crazy!!! I still don't know who is trying to harm her and perhaps that's in book 2 but I'm struggling with the depth of the storyline. I'm disappointed as I love series books and was ready to settle in but it just doesn't ring true for me. the narrator's were ok. Lucy a bit too sheepish for the way the author wanted to portray her heroine but Sean does ok.
steamy bits are hoooot!!!! if your looking for a light MC read then this is it.

Even better than first version

I listened to this book first time it was released with just Ava narrating and it was good. Even better now they have updated to dual narration like the rest of the series. I really hope that new series Guts and Glory will be a duet narration. It’s so much better. Even though the narrators try their best to do the opposite sex voice it spoils the flow of the story to hear a woman try and sound like a man. But still a fantastic series, looking forward to remaining 3 books in Audio.
