Publisher's Summary

Hawk's Call - Bad Boy Series: Book One

Robyn felt like she'd lost her little sister Crystal when she ran off and married Guts. She was only 18-years-old and she'd not heard from her in over a month.

But one night, she got a phone call from Crystal asking for help. Unfortunately, the call was cut off when Guts caught her on the phone. Robyn was frantic. She was her only family and she was determined to find her.

Robyn takes what little money she has and heads to Nashville. She checks into a shabby rundown motel. It's all she can afford. She grabs a paper and looks for jobs but doesn't see anything that suits her. The manager of the motel gives her a lead on a job at a biker bar nearby.

Hawk's House is known for its biker customers and live music. It's a rough and tumble kind of place but Crystal is desperate. So, she checks it out.

How bad could it be?

Hawk's Call is book one in the steamy Bad Boy Romance series.

Series can be listened to in any order. HEA guaranteed, and no cliffhanger.

Fun, Quick Listen!

Bad boy romances are fun! And Simone Carter always gives a quick and entertaining story. Robyn leaves town to try and find her sister Crystal. When she reaches Nashville, she looks for a job to help pay her way while looking and ends up at a bar owned by Hawk. Instant chemistry between these two. Simone always adds a little suspense to her romance giving some body to the story. I do enjoy that Robyn is an independent woman, able to support and defend herself. Definitely some good listening with Liisa Blackwell narrating this enjoyable quick novel.

Good start to the series...

This is a good book that pulled me in from the start. There's always something going on to keep you listening for what will happen next. Although everything in this story wrapped up nicely in the end, there's still enough of a cliffhanger to keep you guessing and anxious for the next book.
The narrator did a great job. All the characters had distinct voices which makes for an easy, enjoyable listen!

Fresh Biker Romance

Robyn raised her little sister Crystal after their mother died, but when Crystal turned 18 she married a biker and disappeared. When Robyn gets an urgent phone call from her sister in the middle of the night, she knows something is wrong. She tracks the call to a biker bar in Nashville, and sets off to search for Crystal.

Robyn takes a job at a local biker bar owned by Hawk. He's a hulk of a man, fierce and protective. Hawk is instantly attracted to Robyn, but she's conflicted by her attraction to him and her fears over his dominant physical presence. Add in her missing sister and Robyn has a lot to deal with!

This was a steamy read that didn't end on a cliffhanger, it was a quick read you'll want to finish in one sitting. I liked that Robyn was independent, even if it did tend to get her into trouble. Hawk was likable, the story was told from Robyn's point of view but he was still fleshed out well. I thought the play on their names was cool.

The narration was well done, it immersed me in the story and Lissa Blackwell's voice fit Robyn well. Her character voices were distinct. Trigger Warning: There is a brief description of a failed sexual assault of a teen girl. I received a copy of the audiobook and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Not Exactly "Bad Boy"

I am a fan of Simone Carter books and this was a cute addition to my collection. The story was short and sweet and featured a HEA.
There were a few small details within the book that an editor should have caught that had me cringe (for example, you can't hear ducks' quacks echoing, or sit down at a bar that was just described as being completely full). The other objection I have is that it's the first book in a so-called "Bad Boy Series" but the main male character isn't a 'Bad Boy' at all. Rugged, handsome, sexy, and built - yes. Bad Boy - no.

With all of that being said, I did enjoy the book and would recommend it to others who are looking for a short adventure.

Good Story

Any additional comments?

An entertaining, engaging and enjoyable story.

The story itself is good. A bit of mystery, suspense and a little steamy romance with enough twists to keep it interesting. Best of all there is no cliffhanger for this couple. It's a complete story with a HEA.

Being a shorter story it moves at fast pace. The instant attraction between Hawk and Robyn worked well in this story.The characters were interesting and immediately likable. Who doesn't love a rough around the edges bad boy who is really a sweetheart. Loved that Robyn was a strong independent woman. She stayed that way throughout the story. So many times the female lead starts out strong then just shrivels up, that didn't happen here.

I wish it had been a bit longer, giving a little more time to both the search for her sister and the developing relationship between Hawk and Robyn.

There were a couple of times the writing didn't always flow smoothly, especially in the beginning of the story. The same thing is repeated in a slightly different way to close together.

Lissa Blackwell does a good job with the narration. Pleasant voice that is easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken. Good character voices. Of coarse her female character voices are good. With just a slight change in her tone her male character voices are good as well. I'm really glad she didn't try to do a deep male voice. She was able to bring the characters and story to life. Very enjoyable.

The quality of the audio fluctuated a couple of times. There were also a couple of times it sounded hollow like she was in a tunnel.
