The danger that followed her had my protective instincts in overdrive. And as the clock ticked down, the choice was laid out before me: save her career or risk everything and have her in my bed. Could I put aside my wants for her needs? Or would my selfishness destroy everything in the process? Warning: If you can't handle a dirty-mouthed bad boy or a tough woman with an attitude, this might not be the book for you.
Loved it! I laughed out loud more then once. Loved the action with the sexy time. The narrator's were spot on. The family bound is great as well. We'll worth the credit/cash.
My first book from Ms. Bliss, fun, fast paced , a bit of suspense, a few hot scenes made this story quite enjoyable. Looking forward to the next one.
Loved the voices Mr. Samuels gave the characters. Ms. Naeymi 's voices were ok, but not a good match for me.
I loved this story and it was exciting and very hawt! I loved every word.
This was a good story. I liked Morgan and Race alright...the story was fine but there were things I had issues with. This is the first story I've read by this author and there's something about the writing that just wasn't for me. I might try another of her books in the future but that's unsure because I'm not sure I'm into her writing style.
Race is a female executive at a big firm. She's had to be a bitch to get where she is at work and keep her position. Race lost her father when she was still young and her mother wasn't very supportive growing up. Race had a boyfriend in college that cheated on her and it made her swear off any love interests.
Morgan is fresh out of 8 years in the Army, specializing in surveillance and supervision. When he gets home, it's to a smothering mother and old friends that are no good and will just get him in trouble. Morgan goes to a family wedding in Florida and ends up getting a position with his cousin's PI firm.
Morgan moves to Florida and his first case is a blackmail case. The client is a business woman that's being blackmailed and her career (which she's worked hard to get ahead in) is threatened. Race called ALFA's PI to work on her case and hopefully find out who's threatening her. When Morgan and Race meet, she tries to put on a cold front like she uses so much at work but she's flustered by Morgan. The attraction is definitely mutual but Morgan isn't happy he feels such a strong attraction to his first client. He's a bit worried for his job but after he can't keep Race off his mind for days at a time, Morgan decides to explore more with her.
As he and Race get to know each other, Morgan works on her case but it's not made easy by Race's disinterest in sharing her personal details with him. Despite her attempts to be standoffish, Race can't help but be drawn in by Morgan and be too flustered to hold onto her attitude. Morgan is a rather take charge guy and tends to ignore/enjoy her attitude so it works out well. The case doesn't go quite as well. They figure it out and all but there are delays that cause some danger to Race that really could have been avoided. But with that hurdle taken care of, Race and Morgan are able to (with a little help) start their HEA together.
This was an enjoyable story overall. Race was a decent heroine but she did sometimes seem to be obstinate just for the sake of it, even if it was to her own detriment. Morgan was a good hero. I'm not sure what it was about the writing that I didn't quite get into but although I thought the characters and story were alright it just wasn't quite the right vibe/feel for me. I guess this author's writing style just isn't for me but others might like it better.
* note - There were 2 narrators, a female for the parts from Race's PoV and a male for the parts from Morgan's PoV. Both did fine but Race's narration did bother me a bit. Race was born and raised in the city in Florida and from what I've heard (and experienced), the people that live in cities in Florida don't typically have the southern accent. The female narrator portrayed Race's voice with a heavy southern accent (that to me sounded more Louisiana than Georgia/Florida) and the male narrator didn't give Race an accent...so it bothered me a bit.
I really enjoyed the guy narrator. Wasn't too fond of the female at first, but she grew on me. I didn't expect the climax to be so intense...haha get it?...sorry, immature I know but I couldn't resist. Anyways, I was entertained and didn't expect the story to go where it did with Morgan and Race, but it went there and I was pleasantly satisfied.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes I would, I really love this series and the audiobooks are all fantastic
What about Samara Naeymi and Lee Samuels ’s performance did you like?
Both did a great job narrating, a really enjoyable audiobook
I love listening to Lee Samuels but the female narrator's voice ruined it for me. To me, she was too sultry & southern for the story. I think it might have been better to read the book. Lee Samuels gets a 5 for narration. Not worth my credit based on her narration.
I am reading the Alfa Pi Series by Chelle Bliss out of order, something I never do. I listened to Wicked Impulse (book 3) first, then went back to book one, Sinful Intent. I had to see where we first meet Morgan and his mom Fran.
"Oh G-d, was I going to be stuck with Ma as my plus-one for an eternity?"
Honestly, I listened to this a while ago and I am finally getting around to a review, so this won't be as detailed as most reviews because I don't remember it as well as I would if I reviewed right away.
If you are new to Chelle Bliss, the Alfa PI series (and this book) can totally stand alone. But if you are a long-term fan of Chelle, you’ll love her visits with all of the Gallo clan. Morgan is a cousin who just left the Army and is forced by his overbearing mom to go to a wedding in Florida. While there, he is offered a position the the Alfa PI agency. His first client is Race True (Yes, that’s her name), a business woman who is being blackmailed.
“I read somewhere that a p**** snaps back to virginal tightness after being empty for so long. I wouldn’t be shocked if mine was sealed closed with cobwebs inside.”
To be honest, I didn’t really like either character at first. Race was kind of a b and Morgan was kind of a jerk. But after a while I changed my opinion and began to like them both. The connection between the couple was instant and the sexual tension was off the charts. Plus, I thought she had some funny inner thoughts.
As the story went on it was filled with fun banter, lots of interesting sexy times, family love and a little suspense.
"She made me want to be a better version of myself. No longer needing to protect the soldiers of my past, I made her safety and happiness my priorities."
I loved how hard Morgan tried to behave and not sleep with his first client, but the connection between them was just too strong.
“In all honesty, I hadn’t saved Race True. She’d saved me. Giving me a life full of love and everything I’d always needed but never knew I’d wanted.”
•Fast-paced and exciting.
•Visits with the Gallos.
•Stands alone well.
•Very little angst.
•Lots of humor, especially from Fran, his mom.
•Never totally fell in love with either character.
•I couldn’t stand her narration.
She over-acted and tried way too hard with the accents. It totally didn’t work for me. He was fine.
The Down & Dirty:
I am really enjoying Chelle Bliss’s writing in the Alfa Pi series. Filled with sexy alphas, funny banter, family, suspense, romance and hot sex, it has everything I love. It took me a bit longer to bond with and root for the characters, but in the end, I loved them.
Rating: 4.25 stars, 4.5 Heat, 3.5 Narration
This book is exciting and suspenseful!!! This is crazy I enjoyed listening to it. I listened straight through I couldn't put it down :)
I loved the book. There were several unexpected scenes throughout the book. Loved the meddling mother. Chelae Bliss has another hit. Really liked the continuation of the Gallo family, but in another series.
love can come from the left field when you least expect it and boy did Morgan need a woman with extra spunk. he fought for but the fear of nearly losing someone you just found can drive you crazy. I loved where this went how realistic it got and of course I laughed along the way. Fran, Morgan's mum is something else but aren't all parents. Get on it.
