Publisher's Summary

After the incident in Iraq, I found myself at the end of my rope, contemplating the taste of my 9mm. That's when he found me; they found me.

The Boneyard Brotherhood took me in, gave me purpose. My life became about my bike, my brothers, my freedom. But there was still something missing; something I needed but couldn't put my finger on.

That something came walkin' in the door of our club, wantin' to serve papers to Teddy, the man who brought me to the Brotherhood. She was meek, conservative, shy. What she didn't know was that she was also going to be mine.

Once I laid eyes on Madi, I knew I had to have her, her curves, her subdued smile, the way her face flushed when I called her sweetcheeks. But before I could make her mine, I had to convince her to look past the tough tattooed biker image she was afraid of and find the real me.

Mild MC Romance 🏍

Sid Redding a veteran who was injured in Iraq is at the end of his rope with no positive direction in site.
When a man Sid affectionately dubbed "Teddy" from the boneyard brotherhood motor cycle club walks in and changes Sid's plans.
Teddy welcomes Sid into the club where he finds purpose again fixing bikes.
Then one day Madison shows up to serve papers and Sid realizes what's still missing in his life.
This book is not your typical MC romance.
I'm used to the alpha male biker being dominant sometimes disrespectful and jumping in bed with every sweet butt in the club.
Sid is sweet, attentive, considerate, and doesn't cheat.
This low drama instant love doesn't end with a cliffhanger either.
This listen turned out to be a pleasant easy biker romance.
The narrator was a good choice for this book as well.
Gideon Welles voice fit the part of a middle aged biker.
I was gifted this book in exchange for my honest review.

Awesome MC romance

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the characters!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I honestly can't pin it down to just one moment, Sid and Madi's relationship is pretty moving throughout the book, and the book as a whole is very moving.

Any additional comments?

A sweeter MC romance than most, mainly focusing on the relationship between Sid and Madi and less on MC activities. Sid is a sweetheart of a biker. The narrator was awesome as well. I loved this book! I received a free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Not your typical MC Romance

Not your typical MC romance, this book is a pleasant surprise. Amber Burns has a way of integrating a not so ordinary romance with the hurdles a veteran has to live with when hurt in combat. Sid returns from an IED explosion several years before and has adapted to civilian life with his disabilities. He meets Maddie, and he knows right away, he is "going to put a ring on it!". I love it when there is love at first sight. Sid is a complex character, with his rough, soldier exterior, it's thought that he will be a tough man to get to know. His vulnerable side is evident and endearing, Maddie cannot help but fall for him. He is honest and forthcoming with his feelings. Maddie is a little harder to get to know, though as she warms up to Sid, her wildcat side comes out.

The twist and turns this book takes keeps the book interesting as well as romantic. There is trouble inside the MC Club and circumstances wreak havoc with Sid and Maddie. I love how Amber Burns is able to tie all these threads together and give the story real depth.

Gideon Welles is the narrator for this book. His raspy, baritone voice is perfect for Sid. He also has a good range of characters both male and female with discernible characteristics for each. He is fast becoming an autobuy narrator for me!

Great narration!

Any additional comments?

3.5 stars! OVERHAUL was not your typical MC story-no club business, no club floozies or attending church. And I have to admit, I was kinda disappointed as I thought that that was what this story would be about. Having said that though, this story had much more depth in that it explored the post war life of an injured ex-soldier and his daily battle of living with his injury. I felt that the author did an outstanding job of showing his struggle to get thru each day, battling his pain, and the MC was more a place for ex-servicemen to belong rather than it being an actual MC. I enjoyed the romance between Sid and Madi tho felt that the whole Insta-love a bit unbelievable. I also felt that the second half where Sid is trying to prove his innocence was a little drawn out, and deviated from the romance.

This was my first audio narrated by Gideon Welles, and it certainly won't be my last!! Mr. Welles is exceptional in emoting the characters especially Sid's inner dialogue. Not only could I hear but I could FEEL all of Sid's emotions, pain and struggles. Truly talented!!!

Worth the Ride

Sid had been drowning his pain with alcohol ever since he returned from Iraq, injured from a vehicle explosion and with terrible nerve pain. Sitting in a bar one night, Sid began contemplating suicide. That's when he met Teddy, another vet who understood just what he was going through. Teddy took Sid on a ride and introduced him to his motorcycle club. The club was just what Sid needed, and he found his place in it fixing up the members' bikes.

Four years later, shy sweet Madi showed up to serve Teddy, hiding her curves under ill fitting clothes and her face behind glasses. Sid was immediately attracted to her and tried everything he could think of to get her to go out with him. When she finally agreed, they moved to boyfriend and girlfriend on their first date. But when Sid needed Madi most, she pulled away, and he had to find a way to get her back.

This was my first motorcycle club romance (I didn't even know that was a thing!) and I loved it. Character driven stories are my favorite, and Sid was well worth the ride. He was such a perfect mix of toughness and vulnerability. The entire story was told from his point of view, and I didn't spend a boring moment in his head. He had gone through such a tough time after his injury in Iraq, but he didn't dwell on what ifs or feel sorry for himself after the initial chapter. He found something that made him happy and he went for it. This book really cast a light on the hardships our veterans face, injured or not, and it was refreshing to read a book that didn't gloss over these details.

Madi was a more passive presence. Sid seemed to get what he needed from her, not because of anything she brought to their relationship, but because of what he took from her. It might have been anyone that filled that need. By the end she was beginning to be more assertive, and with Sid by her side she might grow into a stronger woman. This was a steamy read, a standalone book with no cliffhanger.

Gideon Welles as the narrator was excellent, his voice seemed to match my image of Sid perfectly. He spoke with a deep gravelly growl that was incredibly pleasant. He lightened his tone for Madi's speaking voice and each character was recognizable. Overall it was a great job. I was provided a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review. I'd definitely listen to another book by both the author and narrator.

TENDER STORY, NOT BAD-ASS AND GRITTY

Any additional comments?

I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

Well thought out story line about Sid, a wounded war veteran who suffers from non-stop pain, and Madison, a blushing girl with little experience and a lot of trust issues. One misunderstanding with the law causes enough doubt in Madie's mind for her to walk away leaving Sid alone and forced to face his own insecurities and what it is he really wants.

Gideon Welles has a great gravely voice. I've heard him before and liked him.

Two Thumbs Up!

*** Not Your Typical MC Romance!***

This is not your typical MC romance! No cheating, no triggering, instalove romance with some Regula Smegula (sp?) People! I usually like my MC romances a bit dark so this was new for me but I actually liked it! It was refreshing in some of its realness. I mean don't get me wrong somethings like how fast the relationship moves are not so realistic but the issues are H/h are dealing with are! Sid our Hero is back from Iraq after being honorably discharges after he received some debilitating injuries. He is having a hard time adjusting to his new normal when the MC finds and saves him. Madison is a sweet and painfully shy young woman.

This story touches on a lot of very relatable subjects for some people like suicidal thinking, chronic pain, disability and the trials of that, the struggles of being a vet and the ones that love them, as well as shocker for a romance some ED issues! None of those spoil this romance! Its sweet a little sexy and a nice break from the perfect world or dark romances I have been reading. I definitely suggest this when you need a little sugar with your spice. I also really liked the narration!

* I received this a free copy of this audiobook for my honest review.

light MC

One of the lightest MC stories I listened to and was quite a fresh change. A mix of romance with some suspense, healing after being in the war, Sid finds happiness with Maddie despite the few rough patches on their journey to HEA.
I picked it because the narrator, Mr. Welles is one of my faves and I would listen to any of his audios with pleasure. His voice is quite flexible, love especially the deep raspy rumble he gave Sid.

Dont Judge by the outside

Any additional comments?

Overhaul brings us the story of Madi and Sid. Opposites that are attracted to each other.
Their relationship is tested when Sid tries to do the right thing and ends up in trouble. Its a story of overcoming stereotypes and working through misunderstandings and doing what is right at any cost.

A sweeter softer kind of biker

Any additional comments?

3.5 stars
This is the second book from this series that I have listened to and I enjoyed it just as much as the first book I listened to. Even though this is part of a series each book can be listened to as a standalone. I listened to them out of order and it didn't have any effect on my enjoyment of either book.

It's a very entertaining and enjoyable sweeter MC story that is different from most of the MC books I have read before. It's an MC light story.

It focuses more on the relationship between Sid and Madi instead of the MC. Even though it's not full of constant drama and angst the story has a few little twists that keep it interesting. While I love my bad boy bikers it's nice to have a story that isn't full of constant drama, violence and heartache every once in a while. It was a nice change of pace. It was also nice to have a biker that wasn't a jerk and treated his girl like gold from the start.

Sid and Madi were both great characters. Sid was likable and easy to relate to from the start.

Gideon Welles did a really good job with the narration. He was the perfect narrator for this book. Nice voice, rough, gravelly and sexy around the edges just how you want your bad boy biker to sound. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. He has some really good character voices. Of coarse the male voices are fantastic. With a voice so deep, occasionally I had a hard time distinguishing the male and female characters. I am glad though that he didn't attempt to do a high pitched female voice, that would have ruined the story. He was able to bring the characters, their emotions and story to life through his narration. Very enjoyable

That voice!

The story was decent. Nothing major but entertaining. What make it though was the voice. It really brought the story to life. He really made it sound like it was his story. I’d have liked more chemistry between the two and definitely more action but it was decent.

Sadly not for me

I was gifted This book via audiobook blast in exchange for an honest review...
This was an OK listen ,narration was good but the book for me was not gritty enough bordering on sickly sweet and considering it was meant to be a mcc book it never reached the mark .
Enough said sorry

MC Romance with a Difference!

I liked this story. I liked the simple honesty of it. I liked that for a change it was written entirely from the male protagonist's point of view. The reader has no idea with the woman is experiencing, feeling or thinking. I enjoyed Gideon Welles gravelly voice that brought Sid to life. He managed Maddi's softer tones as well. I liked that the usual pursuits associated with Motorcycle Clubs are included though the Boneyard Brotherhood's approach to drugs, etc is from a different angle giving the members a gruff exterior and a more sensitive inside. I like how Amber Burns kept it real with the genuine physical and emotional effects of PTSD. And I especially liked how this is a story about making the right choices and finding that right person to make all of it worth the effort, through the good, bad and ugly. It does feel a little slow at times but i think Maddi and Sid's story fits their personalities.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
