Um, why all the good reviews?

I don't get why this book received so many positive reviews. It's not very good. There is a semblance of a story but none written with any depth. The characters are interesting enough but there was no reason given why the three men wolves/leopards would even decide to share a single female. Their connection was hinted at but that would explain why they are living together, not why they would share a female. Just a little bit of a storyline here would gone a long way.

And the female! This female has intimacy issues but she decides to solve those issues with a little BDSM and a threesome. Yeah, that happens. I can take werewolves and wereleopards well enough; there's plenty of fantasy literature to make that leap. I still need to know why characters do what they do. I mean, c'mon.

I take no issue with the narration. In fact, I think Levine deserves better material.

Well hot dang!

Well hot dang! This audiobook was smoking! I love some good and steamy PNR, and Acceptable Risk just fit the bill for me.

I love shifter/human romances, but I've never read a reverse harem story so this one was interesting/new to me. I love menage stories so I was totally game for this book.

Noah Michael Levine. His voice was perfect for this book. Smooth, sexy, and super alpha. He truly did a great job with the narration!

This is my first Candance Blevins book, and I'm looking forward to checking out some more of her back list. If you're looking for a quick and sexy paranormal listen, definitly check out this audio book!

FANTASY DO SOMETIMES COME TRUE AND LAST . . .

Bethany had this super sexy hot desire to have her own harem. She just happens to say that in a bar one night not know that there were ears that could hear so much more than a simple whisper. Mac, Ranger, Jonathan are more than willing and ready to give this little vixen her deepest desire. But what if they want more. Bethany wants nothing more than one sex filled night of delightful fantasy and memories to carry her onward. One night of wild abandon turns in to secrets being let out and ties being made bonds being formed and so much more opened for the four of them involved. I loved getting my feet wet with Mac, Ranger, Jonathan and Bethany.

Narrator Noah Michael Levine made an impact with his voices. He gave perfect separation between the various male characters and the female for that matter. I loved listening to his voice. He made things feel more real that just reading from the page. The tone and diction/accents and pitch gave great audio listening.

A Woman + A Hot Leopard + 2 Sexy Wolves = Yum!

This is #3 in the Chattanooga Supernaturals Series

HEA, NO cheating, no cliffhangers!

This could be taken as a standalones, but they are connected by characters. I always advise to read in order to get the most out of the experience.

Content Warning: This is a Reverse Harem. SEX! Lots! And it gets kinky! So if you do not like that sort of stuff, then you should avoid.


♥ Story ♥

This is a True Reverse Harem. All the men are there to please Bethany. They do not have sex with each other. Acceptable Risk features characters from previous books in this series as well as those from both the Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club Series and the Safeword Series.

Bethany wants a harem like her friend Cassie, but just for right now. This girl has some relationship issues! Mac, Jonathan, and Ranger are the men that are willing to extend the offer to our heroine. They have some issues of their own. The biggest being that they are supernaturals! Bethany freaks out more over the "mine" thing than the "furry" thing.

This is a short listen with a LOT of steam, but manages to have a lot of heart too! I like how caring the guys were. They were willing to talk Bethany through everything. That right there is the biggest fantasy part of the whole story [image error]!


♥ Author ♥

Candace Blevins is a new author to me. Loved the steam and the story, and would listen to her other audio titles once more are released.


♥ Narrator ♥

Noah Michael Levine does Sexy Alpha well! Both genders as well as the general story narration was done with Gruffy Yum! Would listen to more titles performed by him.

♥ Audio Production ♥

Slightly slower sounds best to me. I listened at 0.90 speed.
Don't be afraid to experiment.

A peek into Candace's Kinky World!

Acceptable Risk was originally from an anthology, but now has been released as a novella. The Audiobook is quite short only 2hrs 57mins, so this t is a peek into the one of Candace’s kinky worlds. This one is like most women’s dreams. There you are sitting with your best friend and 3 gorgeous men walk into the bar and you turn to your friend in this case its Jenny. “I wouldn’t mind those three in my harem,” not expecting the men to hear what I said. One problem they are all shifters and they heard, and volunteer for the harem. This is an entertaining story with plenty of sex and kink, but I found it funny in places. The narrator was faultless, a good narrator for me is someone that does multiple voices, that when you’re in the story without thinking the accent on that one is dodgy. The guys were individual, and it was like listening to a group of guys chatting.

This Risk Is Worth A Chance

What made the experience of listening to Acceptable Risk the most enjoyable?

I think having a narrator with a voice that has you imagining some of the characters helps to get that movie playing in your head. The reason you listen to a book is because you're looking for more of an aural experience. Plus it's a way of getting your book fix while you're able to get other things done at the same time.

Who was your favorite character and why?

You woiuld think that having a male narrator that I would pick a male character. Sorry to disappoint you but it would have to be Bethany. She wants something but as she gets her wish she finds out some secrets that make her a little wary about her choice. You get the sense that what she feels is real. Bethany also knows how to stand up for herself and not afraid to speak her mind.

What about Noah Michael Levine’s performance did you like?

Mr. Levine brings the male characters to life. I had no trouble picturing what Ranger, Max, and Jonathan may look like. He also adds the heat to the story that I probably wouldn't feel by reading the book myself. You get more of an emotional experience having someone read to you. When you read for yourself a lot of times it's more monotone. Our narrator also had me feeling as if I was missing something. Had me wondering if there was a story that should have come before - how these three men came to be. So he's given me a reason to check out more of our author's other paranormal series.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I didn't have an extreme reaction but it certainly got me hot. Mr. Levine has me feeling as if I'm standing off to the side as each scene is played out. Left me wanting more and not wanting this book to end. So looking forward to listening to more of Ms. Blevins' work.

Any additional comments?

Ms. Blevins and Mr. Levine are a perfect couple - they are perfect for each other. This is a story that will push boundaries. Both for the characters as well as for the reader/listener. If you're shy at having a person say certain words than I would suggest reading the book. But if you're up for a more seductive experience than you need to listen. There is a lot of graphic language but that just adds to who these people are and what they want.

At times I closed my eyes as the scene played out. I wanted to concentrate on the scene and see how it played out in my mind - didn't want the outside world to take my mind away from what Mr. Levine was reading. But I will tell you that it's not a book to listen to you when you are at work. This is when having the book is the better idea. So this means that this is one of those times where having both the book and the audio version is a good thing. Once I find out what other possible books can be connected with this one, I can see myself listening to this book again.

I voluntarily reviewed an Audiobook copy of this book.

Short in length, but definitely not in heat!

**I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Candace Blevins. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it. **

I’m not sure if reverse harem stories are relatively new or just rising in popularity, but I’ve found that I very much enjoy them. “Acceptable Risk” was no exception! Seriously, how have I not come across Candace Blevins before? Her writing is excellent! And while I don’t generally enjoy the shifter thing, I have to admit that it definitely added a nice element in this case.

At first, I wasn’t sure how any character development or fleshing out was going to happen in under three hours, but Ms. Blevins surprised me. Bethany probably showed the most change, going from shy (though she knows what she likes) to handling three shifter men without pause. As a new werewolf still growing accustomed to the changes in his life, you’d think Mac would be aggressive or unpredictable, but he’s not. He was actually really sweet. Ranger was actually the most dominant, though I suppose this shouldn’t be surprising for an Alpha. Jonathan was something of a combination of Mac and Ranger, though as a wereleopard, he has his own personality and quirks.

Warning: “Acceptable Risk” has a little of everything in the sex department, from BDSM to dirty talk, and it was all very descriptive. If much of anything bothers you, this might not be a good choice for you. (Personally, dirty talk doesn't do it for me and there was a lot of it.)

Noah Michael Levine was an excellent narrator choice for “Acceptable Risk”. He voiced each character in such a way that they were easily discernable from one another without being over-the-top dramatic. At first, I found his pace to be a little fast, but that seemed to be just in the prologue. Going forward from there, his pace, tone, and performance were fabulous.

Bottom line: Though it’s a relatively short listen, a lot happened in those two hours! Don’t worry if you haven’t read the first two books; “Acceptable Risk” stood on it’s own quite well. I will definitely be reading/listening ot more by Candace Blevins and I highly recommend Noah Michael Levine as a narrator!

Keep a fan close, because this is hot!!

Acceptable Risk is a reverse harem and is the 2nd reverse harem book I have come across recently. This is also a shifters/ human relationship.

This is a relatively short audiobook at 2 hours 57 minutes but it packs a lot into that time. It is the third in series and I have not read the previous books.

Bethany is one lucky, strong minded woman! After catching the eye of new werewolf Mac in a bar when he overhears her at the bar wanting to take on not only him, but also the werewolf and wereleopard chaperoning his night out. Luckily for her Mac loves a menage and because he is a new werewolf he wouldn’t be trusted alone with a human woman but his companions are more than up for some fun with the beautiful redhead.

What start out as a one night stand has real potential for a future but there are a lot of hurdles that they must overcome.

I really did enjoy this Acceptable Risk. Noah Michael Levine does sexy narrating very well. The characters are flawlessly portrayed and he flows from one character to another seamlessly.

The sexy story written by Candace Blevins really couldn’t have hoped for a better narrator.

More please…

LOVED THIS BOOK

ACCEPTABLE RISK is the third book in the Chattanooga Supernaturals series. It does stand on its own, but I’m sure that it would be even better to know the previous stories. In fact, I’m told that this is one of three sister series and I’m sure I want to read all three series.

This is the first book I have read from this author. I hope it is not my last, especially as an audiobook. It was wonderful listening to this as I drove to and from work. Since it was just under three hours, it was a quick and steamy introduction to this ménage relationship and I hope they will be in more book books to come.

Bethany may not pick a favorite in her harem, but I might. First there is Mac. He is a new werewolf, growing accustomed to his new dual personality. He is calming and sweet. Then there is the Alpha, Ranger, who is a dominant in the bedroom. Finally, there is Jonathan, the wereleopard, who is also sweet in his own way, also alpha, and also dominant, but to a lesser degree…. Now which one would I pick? Together, they make a family. Because, after all, what is the definition of family, but love?

Note: while I was given this book as a gifted audiobook copy, my opinions are my own and are given freely.

Super hot

This was my first book by Candace Belvins and I am honestly wondering why I hadn't heard of her before. I actually listened to the Audiobook and it was so hot I think I have burns inside my ears. I will definitely be looking for more of her books.

Acceptable Risk is book 3 of the Chattanooga Supernaturals series. These books are stand alones. As I said this is my first book but I had no problems at all with starting on book and understanding what was going on. I do not have the full back story of each of the characters but there was just enough information on each one to introduce them sufficiently. This is a rather short book, but oh my was it hot.

In the book Bethany who is a once bit twice shy kind of girl has always joked if she were to settle down it would be with her own harem of men. One night in the bar she says to a friend she would like to have those 3 guys as a harem. Little does she know "those 3 guys" are shifters with super hearing. Mac is a recently turned werewolf and over hears Bethany, Ranger is the one who turned Mac, and Jonathan is a wereleopard.

Bethany gets a whole lot more then she bargains for as well as a future with not one but 3 loves of her life.

This book is filled with super hot sex, BDSM and more. If you are the least bit prudish you may not want to pick this book up. For the rest of us, RUN, get your copy and lock yourself in a room for a few hours.

The Audiobook is Narrated by Noah Michael Levine. He has doe a great job with all the character voices, even the female voice. He did not rush or drag the story out. He kept pace extremely well. He really made this book enjoyable for me.
