Publisher's Summary

Over the past decade, Khaz has watched as supernatural creatures like himself have turned the world into their own personal playground. Unlike the others, he didn't benefit from the Takeover, and every time he sells himself to keep a roof over his head, he's keenly aware of that fact. His landlord, a renowned slaver, offers him the chance to catch up on his rent by breaking a human.

Groomed to fight, Noah has survived by giving himself over to his hatred of those who took everything away from humanity. When the werewolf can't break him, he's given to the vampire instead - and he's sure this will be no different. The problem is that even the harsh lessons the Rebellion taught him couldn't prepare him for someone like Khaz...who always has an ace up his sleeve.

Now that supernatural beings have seized control of the world, life has become a struggle for the humans who once held power. Witches, vampires, and werewolves determine the fate of every single human, but their moral compasses have long since been shattered. Rebels, free humans, and slaves all share dreams of hope, mercy, love, and more. But with their fate so uncertain, survival isn't enough...and they may have to sacrifice what is nearest and dearest to them if they want to change their lives.

Bought, Ravel, and Recoil feature different characters whose lives begin to come together in Owned and Temper. This dystopian series explores different aspects of the world, from utter darkness to the shining lights waiting to emerge. Because of this, the audiobooks range from dark erotica to romance to horror to action(ish) to bits of other things in between.

What an Amazing World! Jack Noble is Spectacular

I'm glad I waited for the release of the audiobook of Owned: A Ripples in the Status Quo Story: Book 4. I've already heard how Recoil ends, so fans of this series? Just plan to have #4 already downloaded before you start!

I love the world that R. Phoenix has created for this series. Each of the characters are fabulous, but damn Khaz yes, please! What a seduction! Noah never really stood a chance, but what happens between them? Well I loved it!

Thank goodness R. Phoenix was able to get narrator Jack Noble for the next book as well. He totally gets these characters. His cultured, sensual voice just wraps around me and the audiobook was finished before I knew it *waaaah* I need more!


an audiobook copy of Recoil was provided to me for the purpose of my review

Loved everything about it!!

First of all I have to say that I loved the characters of Khaz and Noah, the way in which the author has built their characters and their inner demons that lead them to not find a suitable place for them in this world now changed forever. Khaz forced to sell not only his body to survive, but also to go against his principles, which yes, still disturb his soul, and after a long time he will find himself making a difficult decision, to ignore his feelings and continue as he has always done with his sad and empty life, or risk everything for a human he just known for a few days, but that has had such a strong impact in his life. Noah for his part has no decision-making power in this situation, but not for this he will be silent to suffer as nothing was, even coming to supplicate this creature of the night, that he should hate, but for some reason infuses a security that he had not felt for a long time. After this audiobook you won't be able to not rush to listen to the next one, and with the beautiful voice of Jack Noble this was an absolute pleasure from start to finish.

A very emotional ride

I'll be honest here and tell you that this stirred up a lot of emotions in me, not all of them good, but for a book to grab and hold me like that, the author has to be really good. I ached for Khaz and especially for Noah, they'd both been dealt a horrible hand in life, and despite the circumstances I was glad they'd found each other.

Jack Noble's narration was very good and I'll definitely continnue with this series.

Amazing addition to the series!

This book is one of my favorites of the series. I love Khaz and Noah so much I was excited to listen to their story. Jack Noble does a great job getting the characters and their struggles down. He plays the roles really well and narrates the story in a way that it's easy to visualize.

I was a bit worried because I love these characters so much and I wanted them to be perfect, but I think he nails them beautifully and I can't wait to hear the next book because that one has some of the best emotionally charged scenes in the series and hearing them will be fun.

I'm so glad that R. Phoenix chose this narrator for the series because he's doing a fantastic job and I couldn't picture anyone else voicing these characters.

Recoil

I truly enjoyed this book, it is another enticing story in this series. When Khaz takes on the job of breaking Noah he never thought anything would come of it but a paycheck. Yet as the two spend time together emotions begin to come into play for the men and each must decide just what they will do and where they stand in this new world.

I loved the way their relationship begins to take shape and the strength that each man has. Both men have their own problems to deal with and have only just begun to open up to each other. Their time together is quickly coming to an end and decisions must be made. We get to see the beginnings of trust and maybe even something more.

Jack Noble does a wonderful job of giving these characters substance and I was quickly immersed in their story right from the start. This story does end on a cliff hanger and I am eagerly waiting to see what happens next to these two men. Will what they have started get the chance to blossom and will all be forgiven or will the pain of the past be to much for them to look towards a future together?
