Publisher's Summary

Can't win for losin'...

As any gambler will tell you, luck runs hot and cold. For my many sins I've been forced to scrape a life out of poker games and side-jobs on the fringes of civil society. I thought I hit it big when I raked 50-grand off the table at a roadhouse in Texas.

It is amazing what a win can cost you.

Now, on the run from a drug cartel headed by an unstoppable juggernaut, pursued by a shape-shifting killer, and framed for attempted murder, I have to protect a girl with a bounty on her head as I try to figure out why the hell the vehicles I turn on are suddenly transforming into stupidly hot super-powered women.

I guess you take the good with the bad, right? So pull up a chair and pick your poison, I'm gonna tell you a story you will never believe...

Warning: This audiobook has adult themes including a slow burn harem and violence.

Had potential but failed will be returning,

Minor Spoilers,

Not a harem, won't ever be a harem brcause of the MC's inabilities, so instead 2 separate couples form. Perhaps in later books there might be sexual interactions between the groups but can't have a harem if there are separate relationships.

With that said the biggest issue is the lack of sex. Yes it stated a slow burn harem but people who purchase these type of books purchase them for the eroticism found in the harem style book. I feel I was lied to by the author in regards to the books writeup. Eventually when there is sex its skipped over. The fact is I've read/listen to more detail in YA books then whats in this book.

I won't be continuing this series, I fell betrayed by the author which is a shame because I've enjoy other works by this author. Now I will be questioning any future works by this author.

Excellent from start to finish!

This was a really good audiobook. There’s never a dull moment. The story itself is original. And the narration was absolutely amazing!
Do yourself a favor and spend the credit. You won’t be disappointed.

Honestly one of Cebelius best books.

So i enjoyed Cebelius other series, the world building, the characters, powers and races are all fun in said other series (Celestine Chronicles). With that said the Celestine Chronicles i never liked how hesitant the main character was in that with what he was.
This series has everything his first series had and none of the Hesitation! not to mention i love Superhero stories and there is just not just enough great ones that i personally enjoy in audible form.
The world seems promising and i hope is developed a bit further, The characters are honestly all amazing each of the girls are very unique and has varies strengths and personality, the main character is also great he is smart, clever but never so much so that you feel it is unbelievable.
I could praise this more but honestly if you like superhero books and don't mind harem then i HIGH recommend
this series.

did not see this coming

If you get this book thinking it's going to be anything like the celestine book, it ain't. That said this book is another banger right from the get go. 10 out of 10 do recommend.

Very sweet

While this is a harem style story it isn't all that lewd. The book is very story driven with unique and interesting characters. Relationships are allowed to grow in a fairly organic way. I most definitely will pick up book two and I hope we get some flashbacks of the Crash.

Nice!

I fell off Mask of the Template after a couple of books. It was a bit to dark/emo and to much harem/relationship drama for me. I much prefer this more comedic series with super heroes and less drama and sex.

top end narration and a fantastic story

I loved the story of Sam and his adventure in this story. The way it is told is so fun, I enjoy the depth of character that is brought to life by the narrators.

I really felt like I was the one in the seat of Sam
they did a fantastic job bringing this story to life.
the harem elements were masterfully done and slowly managed. This story really has all dynamics most people look for.

overall this story is definitely on my recommendation list for people to have to listen to.q

Decent story

Some of the lines are a bit cheesey, but it's a decent story.
I would recommend checking out the song Sledgehammer, it's a very good song.

Well... didn't expect much but...

Gotta say you really surprised me!!
The MC is Witty, sarcastic and just about an unlikely Hero which I completely can relate to.
Makes the best out of any situation and with a fun and funny twist
I really enjoyed myself in this one
really did...
and the action was GOOD too so
an all rounder for me

Not Bad.

A very interesting story. I can honestly say that I'm looking forward to the next book. Rebecca and Daniel both do an awesome job narrating.

Something different but not bad

I surprisingly really enjoyed this Was very different from his other novels but overall actually a really enjoyable read it’s more of a action adventure than a haram Right now but that’s not necessarily a bad thing you see you in a lot of the updated character growth that you see in forsaken in this book and I would thoroughly recommend it
