Publisher's Summary

The devil came to me in disguise. Too bad I didn’t notice until it was far too late.

Vanessa:

The devil doesn’t always wear an evil mask. Sometimes, he appears in the most beautiful form. Like the super-hot bad boy with the dirty-blond hair and a wicked glint in his blue eyes who swept in out of nowhere, stealing all the air from my lungs. I thought he was my savior. But he’s my ruination. And he’s just taken a machete to my heart.

Jackson:

For years, my rage seethed under the surface. Hidden behind a cloudy haze of my poison of choice. But now, the fog has cleared.
And I’m out for blood. I will annihilate those responsible for taking my sister from me. Except he’s not here, so I go for the next best target. The woman he abandoned. Until it suited him to drag her into this messed-up elite world. Sucks to be her. Because when I’m done with Vanessa, she’ll wish she was dead.

A stand-alone dark romance set in the Rydeville Elite world. You do not have to listen to the previous audiobooks in this series to enjoy this audiobook as it's a new couple and it ends with a HEA. Due to mature content and themes, this audiobook is recommended to readers aged 18 and over. Some scenes may be triggering.

Every book is 5 stars in this series

Listening to this audio makes the book even better if you have already read it once like I have. Its more intense, more sexy, more angsty MORE EVERYTHING. Vanessa and Jackson were everything I could want and more. This series is in my top favorites ever and Siobhan Davis definitely knew what she was doing when she wrote this. 5 stars doesn't even cover it. *The Flock*

Captivating!

This book pulled me in from the beginning I literally could not put it down. The plot was so interesting and the character development was amazing. I fell in love with both Jackson even though at times I wanted to give him a good kick. I love that Vanessa was a strong character. Jackson and Vanessa have amazing chemistry. This book is dark and lovely I absolutely loved every minute of it. I can't wait to go back and check out the rest of this series! 🎧AudioBoookObsessins 🎧PinkFlamingoProductions

A Great Listen

Jackson is a standalone, dark romance in the Rydeville Elite Series by Siobhan Davis. I was so excited to start this book as I am a huge dark romance lover. It did not disappoint at all and was amazingly good. You might want to get ready because you're going to fall head over heels in love with Jackson. This is his and Vanessa's story and what a story it is. I don't want to tell you Mich about the story as I'm afraid I will give something away. Jackson i s out for revenge for his sisyer. The man who took her away. But when he's not there HR decides to take the woman the he's abandoned. Vanessa thinks he is going to be her savior but Jackson is no such thing. These two have amazing chemistry that is brought to live by the narratorrs. Sarah Puckett and Jay Older have done such an amazing job. I loved listening to them which hasn't always been the case with audio books. But these two shine. This is one audio book you do not want to miss. A story you're going to love. This was the first book I've heard/read from Siobhan Davis but it will not be my last.

A Captivating & Intense Ride! Fantastic🎧📚🎧Listen!

This is an amazing book, the story sucked me right in and captivated my attention and held it straight to the end. Siobhan Davis created a dark and twisted world in this book and it is not a story for those faint of heart, some subject matter and scenes may take some out of their comfort zone. I enjoyed the complexity of the story and all it’s pieces, learning more as each piece is revealed. This book is a stand-alone in the series but some of the events that occurred in Rydeville Elite world are mentioned and referred to but the author does a great job presenting all the details you need to know for this book. The characters are complex and continue to develop as the story goes on. I adored Vanessa, the lead female in this book, she grew up in a family that was well off, so you would think she was privileged, but she was anything but. She refers to her stepfather and the step monster and we soon learn why. At 18 she is thrown out from her home to fend for herself, I admired her for how she fell on her feet, getting a job and holding her own. Jackson is a man on a mission, he wants to avenge her sister’s death and will do anything he has to to get to the people responsible. And Vanessa happens to be part of his master plan, she may be able to lead him to the one who is behind it all. But Jackson’s plan is flawed in many ways, first he misjudges Vanessa and second he could not keep his heart and feelings out of it. I loved how everything plays out in this book, the story is cleverly plotted and there is never a dull moment. There is plenty of drama, angst, twists and turns, thrilling suspense, heartfelt and emotional moments, as well as heartbreaking ones and a romance that stood up to the worst of times. I wanted to kick Jackson’s butt a few times in this book, just as he started to grow on me he had me yelling at him again, thankfully he does redeem himself. He is surrounded by a good group of people, a great support cast of secondary characters, I am looking forward to going back to earlier books to learn more about them, also looking forward to what comes next in the “Rydeville Elite” series, Sawyer. Thank you Siobhan Davis for this awesome story and the emotional rollercoaster ride! 🎧📚🎧 And for the fabulous narration, Sarah Puckett and Jay Alder bring these characters to life, give each their own voice and personality as well has heart and attitude. Sarah Puckett’s portrayal of Vanessa was perfection, she made the role her own, she grasped every one of her emotions which was heard in her performance. She did an awesome job with the secondary characters as well. Jay Alder did great too. They are talented and entertaining storytellers, it is a pleasure to listen to their work. Thank you for another great listen🎧 Thank Pink Flamingo Productions, Audiobook Obsession ~ AudiobookObsessionReviewer🎧

dark, intense

Jackson and Vanessa's chemistry is electric, but Jackson at first, has his own personal agenda. Siobhan Davis doesn't disappoint. This story is intense, dark and had me on the edge of my seat. Kidnapping, bullying, revenge, murder, love, angst, trust issues. 🎧Audiobook Obsession VIP Reviewer 🎧 Pink Flamingo Productions

Rydeville Elite

Jackson (Rydeville Elite, Book 5) is a dark standalone romance set in the Ryderville Elite World. However, other aspects of the story are a continuing arc which evolves the Ryderville Ellites. I missed out by not reading/listening to the others first. Excruciating moments with violence that were a bit difficult to listen to even though I am a dark bully romance fan. The storyline itself is intriguing and we do get a hea in the end. The writing style is captivating and vividly detailed with secrets unraveling throughout. I found the naration took some of the story away with Jay Alders performance. I rate him at 3.5 stars. I didn't enjoy his inflection. His female voice was contrived and his supporting character's fell flat. I didn't enjoy his performance of Jackson. I normally love dual narration but in this case a single narrator would have been preference. Sarah Puckett's five stars for a excellent performance. Her inflection changes all the emotions and characters. Her ability to create male voices is excellent. Overall, I didn’t find the audio very enjoyable due to the male narrator and probably would have enjoyed reading this one rather than audio. 🎧 Pink Flamingo VIP Flock 🎧

Story is great....if you can ignore the male narrator

The story is a great extension and I was addicted regardless of the male narrator. The female narrator’s male voice was better than the male narrator’s voice. His female voice was more believable. Please don’t cast him in any more romantic novels. He was soooo unbelievable and sounded like a 12 year old.

A deliciously dark listen

🎧Audiobook Obsession VIP Reviewer 🎧 A deliciously dark read that held me hostage, I was consumed. Jackson is explosive and complex. You will love him, then hate, then love him. I was totally captivated by him. Vanessa is a strong female lead that I loved. When she falls down she doesn't stay down. She gets up, dust herself off and moves forward. Jackson and Vanessa are good for each other. Their chemistry was sizzling. Sarah Puckett was excellent, Jay Alder is new to me and was good, however there were moments when his voice sounded forced. Other than that I enjoyed the narration.

Edge of your seat angst

I love this whole series but listening to it just amplifies the experience with all the feels. Jackson and Nessa are from the same world with different horrific experiences that glue them together in a way that tears you apart. The abuse, the torture that these characters have experienced is just traumatic and hearing them given life through the narrators is the perfect icing on the cake. I highly recommend this story but you really need to read it it from the Ryderville series from the very start so you can understand how these characters affect one another or you won’t get the true experience of this angst filled story

Vanessa and Jackson!

With this story we finally get to know the real Jackson who appears easy going on the surface but when you peel back the layers you realize he is using drugs, alcohol and woman to numb his pain until he decides to come up with a better plan. After enduring a tragic loss Jackson is determined that the person responsible pays the ultimate price and he has chosen Vanessa as his weapon of revenge and doesn’t care if she gets caught in the crossfire. Vanessa has endured a past that will break your heart and her way of dealing with it led to some destructive behavior. Her step-father forcing her out of the house might just have been the best thing to happen to her as she is determined to live a better life but she never expected the havoc that Jackson would cause when he came into her life. This an emotional story about two people who are damaged by their pasts. There is no denying the heat between them but with one of them determined to use the other for revenge and the other determined to hold her secrets close they are on a collision course and when all is said and done only they can decide if they heal each other or destroy each other. I listed to an audio copy of this book and thought the narrators did a great job with the angst an intrigue of this story.

Crazy good

Whew. I was on the edge of my seat almost the entire book. So much was going on. This can be read as a stand-alone, so no worries if you haven’t read the others in the series. I’ve read the other via kindle, so this is my first audio of the series. The narration was really good, I will say I think the female narrator outshined the male a touch. Or maybe her voice was just easier to get the different voices. Can’t wait for sawyer to come out. I’m curious how that dynamic will play out.

Fantastic 🎧 Audiobook Obsession

I loved this dark romance! I was worried it would mirror every other bully romance I’ve read, but it really didn’t. It had a unique storyline that goes beyond the bullying which I think sets it apart from other novels of this type. There isn’t any group bullying. Jackson does some bullying but only through a portion. I really felt the chemistry between Neesa and Jackson. Neesa is a very strong female character! There are potential triggers but they are tastefully written and narrated. There are some great steamy scenes as well! I enjoyed the ancillary characters and am interested in learning their stories. The narration was great! Sarah is fast becoming a fav for me. I know the book is worth a listen if she’s narrating. The male narrator was fantastic as well! He does a great job distinguishing characters! I recommend! 🎧 #audiobookobsession 🎧 #flock

Dark

This book brought out so many emotions. It was intense and captivating and kept me on the edge of my seat from the beginning until the end. Siobhan Davis is a new-to-me author so this is the first book in the series that I have listened to. While it is a standalone, there were so many references to things that happened in Abby's story that I really want to listen to the complete series in order from book 1. If you like dark romance and don't have any triggers, then this series is definitely for you. Sarah Puckett is a wonderful storyteller and always does an amazing job bringing the characters to life. I've never heard of Jay Alder before this book, but he also did a good job bringing this story to life. 🎧AudiobookObsessionVIPReviewer

Wow, this is a brutal storyline

This book is brutal, the abuse that these characters go through is upsetting but boy do they get their revenge! It has triggers but it’s written very well. Fantastic performance from both Sarah and Jay. #pinkflamingoproductions #flockreview #audiobookobsessionreviewer

Wow!

Siohban Davis is a masterful writer and I completely and fully love her work. We meet Jackson in the first Rydeville Elite books, and you love him, its hard not too. I am so happy we get a deeper look into his story and what makes him tick. Vanessa is just as complicated. This story is one you'll fall in love with even with its darker themes. If I had to sum it up, its that Jackson is epic. Listening to this story was exceptional and the narrators do such a great job.

Jackson & Nessa

Bully romance is a trope that i am really enjoying. There is something about finding the heart of the matter and understanding the issues. This is exactly how I felt while listen to Jackson. Nessa is on her own. Thrown out of her house and cut off from funds, she finds herself learning to be independent. But she has concerns leaving her siblings with her stepfather and mother. Jackson and his friends never were nice to her in high school, but now he is making an effort to show her how he has changed.Jackson is on a mission and with his eye on the prize, he is going to do what he has to with Nessa to get the results he wants. What he doesn't expect are the feelings they have. Siobhan Davis has woven a dark and delicious tale of revenge, retribution, love and redemption. While the 5th book in the series, it definitely stands alone and will capture your attention.The story is complex, with issues that are not only disturbing, but will make you cringe. I know for me, the characters were captivating, and I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. It's a web that needed to be untangled and I was fascinated. I am definitely going back to listen to the others in this series. Sarah Puckett is a fantastic storyteller, and her portrayal of Vanessa made this story for me. She creates a voice with strength and nuances of desperation that make Vanessa real. Jay Alder is Jackson, with a darkness is his voice that let's us know exactly who he is. He's relatively new to me, and I am enjoying getting to know his inflections and qualities as he creates the personality of his characters. These two complimented each other, and made the story captivating.

Dark Romance - Romantic Suspense

Jackson by Siobhan Davis is a dark romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Sarah Puckett and Jay Alder. This is the fifth book in the Rydeville Elite Series but can be read as a stand-alone. The book does come with a warning “Due to mature content and themes, this audiobook is recommended to readers aged 18 and over. Some scenes may be triggering.” This is the first book of Siobhan’s that I have read and it definitely won’t be my last. I was hooked from the very beginning and I can’t wait to go back and read books 1 – 4 of this series to get the rest of the characters story. I really enjoyed the relationship between Vanessa and Jackson. Sarah and Jay did a great job on the narration. I can’t wait to listen to more of their work in the future. I would highly recommend this book if you like dark romances or romantic suspense. AudiobookObsession AudiobookObsessionReviewer AudiobookObsessionVIPReviewer

Jackson

Oh man, what a book! Let me start off by saying this is the first book in this series that I have read/listened to and I had no problems keeping up, but I will definitely be getting the ready ASAP. This book is not your typical bully romance, but so much more. So many Secrets and pain is revealed in this book that you should definitely have some tissues (of a box) in reach. Fantastic writing with amazing flow and the narration was just perfect! #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Loved Sarah and Jay voices

🌟🌟🌟🌟💫 I was really looking forward to this book because I loved Jackson in the first three books. The whole Rydeville Elite series is a must read for me & it a series I will continue to reread! The book was addictive from the beginning to the end as always in books by siobhan Davis and she didn’t disappoint with the twists, hurt, angst and love. At points in this book I did not like Jackson & that took me by surprise but I am glad I loved him again in the end! I loved Abby and Kai even more in this book and I am even more excited for Drew story more than any of them. I obviously want Sawyer story too but I am a little worried for this one as love Xavier however I trust Siobhan and I will be reading as soon as realised!! Second time at reviewing this book as this one an audio and wow 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 for the audio!
