Publisher's Summary

Thomas "Cuss" Layne has never wanted for anything, except the beautiful girl he saved so long ago. But she's a rich girl, and he's a biker. For years, he hasn't had a glimpse of her. Still, he's never been able to get her out of his mind. When her life's in danger, he rides to her rescue once again. This time, he's determined to do what he should've done long ago - make her his, in every possible way.

Tiffany Hamilton has never gotten over the bad boy with the sapphire eyes and midnight hair, the boy who once saved her. She wants him - a touch, a taste - but he's never wanted anything to do with her. It's past time to move on. When the sexy biker barges back into her life, saving her yet again and making demands, he makes it impossible to say no to his raw magnetism. She'll finally have everything she's dreamed of...but will it be enough?

Slow Burn

This is the second book by J L Sheppard that I have listened to and I find it to be enjoyable. The story is not the typical MC book, as Cuss has loved Tiffany since high school. Some of the characters act gruff, yet have true hearts. Dawson McBride did a great performance with his gravely voice. I liked the idea that Cuss was willing to set Tiffany free, although his method was not very mature. I had requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review.

Slow Burn

Thomas and Tiffany have been attracted to each other since they were teenagers and can't seem to work out their communication issues. Thomas is a biker but is hesitant to stake his claim on Tiffany. Good story but it dragged. Good Narration. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

Slow burn MC book

This was my first J.L. Sheppard book and I enjoyed listening to it. It's not your typical MC book as it's very dark and hard to listen to which was a nice change of pace for me. This is a "slow burn" type of romance. Cuss has been in love with Tiff since he was 16 but felt like he doesn't deserve her. He has always protected her from her bad choices in men and now he is out to win her heart. Will they he have what it takes to win her heart?

Dawson McBride does a good job narrating this book. His voice is perfect for a biker and his inflections are spot on. I would have loved to have a female narrator also been part of the book for Tiff but that's just a personal preference.

An Interesting Male Character But A Bit Juvenile

Running Hot wasn't bad. The male lead, Thomas, was interesting and his characteristics were definitely sexy. But I found the book a bit juvenile for me in the way they characters spoke to each other but didn't actually communicate. Love starts with open communication. I'm not really patient when it comes to misunderstandings between characters that draws out far too long and in this book it does. Also, I wasn't into the immature possessiveness Thomas displayed throughout the book. It's cute if he gets a little jealous over something, but when he starts snapping at Tiff and getting angry, it becomes creepy and off putting.

The narrator, while I liked his voice, was an odd choice for this book seeing as it is from the female character's point of view. Hearing the rough, gravelly masculine growl narrate a woman's character was a bit disconcerting.

I was given this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review.

LOVE ENOUGH TO SET IT FREE

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Really liked this sweet scorcher. Thomas, or Cuss, had an unusual mix of real bad-ass and patient determination. When he is given a shot at finally getting Tiffany, the girl of his dreams, he grabs it with both hands. He feels so very unworthy of this girl so he takes his time opting for friendship in order to earn her trust. She comes from a very wealthy family while he’s from “the other side of the tracks.” It’s his inferiority complex that continues to block the relationship. Tiff has just broken up with a wonderful man because deep down she knows she’ll never love anyone like she does Thomas. He has saved her ass many times in the past, giving her his number and making her promise to call him whenever she needs him. But he always backs out of her life thinking she is better off without him as a part of it. Tiff takes this aloofness as dislike and four years of college go by without any contact. When he is approached by her father to remove a threat in her life, that’s when Thomas makes his decision to make her his forever.

The story has an almost awkward beginning, with things happening pretty fast and an almost non existent description of their past experiences. But once you’re in a few chapters, the story starts blooming in color. It’s a slow build love story that has you restless, waiting for them to come together. Just when you think the HEA arrives, a twisted payback delivers a hard punch and almost tilts their wold off it’s axis again. Almost.

I am becoming a big fan of Dawson McBride. HIs deep calm voice was perfect.

TWO THUMBS UP!
