Publisher's Summary

Stern

A new Westmoreland story!

Part of a new trilogy from New York Times best-selling author Brenda Jackson

Stern Westmoreland never makes mistakes - until he helps his best friend, Jovonnie "JoJo" Jones, with a makeover - for another man. Now Stern wants JoJo for himself. Their attraction is undeniable, and there's only one way to prove it: one long, steamy night together as much more than friends!

Bachelor Untamed

One mind-blowing kiss. That was all Ellie Weston shared with her neighbor and crush one summer, before he angrily discovered she'd approached him on a dare. Ten years later Ellie is back at her great-aunt's lake house, and so is Uriel Lassiter - still wildly sexy, single, and happy to stay that way. When Ellie finds her great-aunt's never-completed romance novel, she decides to finish the manuscript - but first she needs some real-life inspiration: a sultry summer fling.

Uriel hasn't forgotten Ellie, and their sizzling chemistry is starting to make him reconsider his tried-and-true bachelor status. But when the truth about her motive emerges, can Ellie convince him that make-believe has turned into sweet reality?

Story is good, but the narrator isn't

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The narrator needs work on his voices. Every male character in the book sound the same, and the women sound horrible.

Is it possible to get a woman narrator?

The voices are horrible, and really takes away from the book

Has Stern & Bachelor Untamed turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not at all, but I would rather read the book than listen to the voices.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He isn't good with women's voices, and all of the women sound horrible.
All of the men have the same sound and country twang. It's not a suave sounding person.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

disappointment --- I was hoping it would get better. The stories are fine, but the narration is awful.

Any additional comments?

I am not sure who chooses the narrators, but all of the Brenda Jackson books needs another narrator that can do more voices.

The narrator needs to STOP!!

If you could sum up Stern & Bachelor Untamed in three words, what would they be?

Wonderful. Great. Awesome.

What did you like best about this story?

I love the basic story line of girl loves boy but boy doesn't know. Boy loves girl, but refuses to give in to it.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

OMG!!! He needs to STOP trying to narrate a girls voice. Its SOOOOOOOOOOOO painful to hear. I would rather he just read it without doing character voices. If it wasn't for the story line I would have stopped listening all together.

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

The narration of this book made it hard to really get into the book. I love Brenda Jackson's books and can get into it with a laugh at some points. This book I just couldn't!!!!!

Enjoyed Both Stories

I think Steven's story was a little short and kinda predictable. But it was still very enjoyable. Bachelor Untaimed was a better story and kept you listening. Liked the way the Steele family was mentioned as a sort of an introduction to that series.

All in all... enjoyable summer read.

I loved Stern it was my favorite of the Westmoreland series, because the character Jojo reminds me of myself. Bachelor Untamed was a nice story as well.

Untamed under cover

This was really good. I'm going to continue to read all her books in this series. Truly an eye opener when it comes to men. They truly love hard even when they fight their enter feelings, emotional hangups and pass history of heartaches.

Left me wanting more

love the story, but the guy reading it has an annoying, nasal, whining voice when he tries to sound like a woman. I kept cringing. Otherwise, he's pretty good.

Both stories were great and let me wanting more. I will definitely check out the series!

LOVED BOTH BOOKS

I don't know how any one could not love the narrator Sean Crisden. Yes some of his female voices aren't so feminine, but really... He Is A Man. You have to use your imagination as well he can't do all the work for you, heck he read the book to you.
