Publisher's Summary

Security professionals Burke and Cole Lennox have shared women before but never meant to fall in love with one. Their lives are precarious, always on the edge of trouble. But Jessa Wade is too tempting, too perfect to let go. They're on a dangerous mission, but they can't help but get close to the beautiful, innocent artist. When their mission takes them to a foreign land, they reluctantly leave their love behind, promising to return for her one day.

After her lovers disappeared, Jessa Wade bravely moves on with her life, protecting her secret. But when she becomes the target of one of Burke and Cole's enemies, the men leap into action, vowing to save their woman and to never leave again. As danger stalks all three, they must come together and face the mistakes of their past. On the run and out of time, Burke and Cole will fight for their future with Jessa. But will Jessa's secret bring them together... or tear them apart?

Poor narrator choice

The book was written from the men’s perspective so why have a woman narrate??? Odd. Would have made for better storytelling with a male voice.

Not Much Chemistry

I listened to the audio version of the book. The narration was pretty good. The story....meh.

One thing that bothered me was the description that read, "On the run and out of time, Burke and Cole will fight for their future with Jessa. But, will Jessa's secret bring them together...or read them apart?"

Based on the description , it sounds like Jessa's secret came out "while" they were on the run. Ummm...slightly misleading. That is, of course, if Jessa's secret is what it appeared to be.

Next, I'm not a big fan of alternating between past and present throughout a story. I don't mind having to refer to the past, but I prefer that it be done all at once and then move into the present. Or, that it has to be done to reference a specific issue, like the Marco situation. But, the constant back and forth was irritating.

Cole, Burke, and Jessa's situation, I could see both POV's. If Cole and Burke could go on the run with burner phones, they could have used one to call Jessa. At minimum, they could have informed her to contact Gavin, if she needed anything. Their job responsibilities have them doing more in-depth research than they did for someone they supposedly loved.

I understand Jessa being angry. I understand irl that often anger doesn't dissipate as quickly as it does in a novel, but in my romance novels, after the explanation was given to Jessa, I though her anger would gradually dissipate. They were wrong for not making arrangements for her, but for her to retain that anger after finding out what they had been doing was also irritating. Also, they DID give her a way to get in touch with them. No one expected the series of circumstances that made it impossible for her to reach them.

I didn't feel the chemistry between them. I think it was lost for me while moving between past and present. It took me out of the moment when the attraction was developing.

I would give this 2 stars, maybe 2.5.

Need a male narrator

Where does Their Virgin's Secret rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I listen to a great many audio books and on a scale of 1-10 this would rank about a 4 1/2 only because the narrator just didn't pull you into the story. When reading the heroes lines, it sounded very corny at times. This narrator would be great for a book that is written from a female character's point of view, but definitely not a male's- especially an alpha male.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Cole, because he is the lost one until he meets Jessa.

How could the performance have been better?

A male narrator! There are a lot of great ones out there and I really wished one had been used.

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

Yes, I had an extreme reaction- disappointment! I liked the story, just not the way it was delivered. I like Shayla Black's books but this one could have been narrated so much better.

Any additional comments?

Please use a male narrator for any other books that have strong male characters. Serena Daniels is a good narrator but I think she'd be better sticking to just female characters. I listened to this book before the 1st book in the series and now I'm not so sure I want to buy and listen to the 1st book since it is narrated by the same person.

NOT MY FAVORITE SHAYLA / LEXI

Any additional comments?

The narrator was not very good at doing different voices or her emotions. I felt there was too much inner turmoil being voiced by the characters...some of them over and over throughout the book. I got to the point where I just wanted to scream if I heard it one more time. I love Shayla Black, however, I think this one was "phoned in"... I know you can do better...so I will be waiting for your next book!!!

Main character is self centered

Are usually love this author but I couldn’t get through this book the main character or just that is so whiny and self-centered I just want to punch her in the face. I only got through about half of the book before I gave up I thought maybe she might get less whiny but she never did

Loving this Series!

Two Men on a Mission

Security Professionals Burke and Cole Lennox have shared women before but never meant to fall in love with one. Their lives are precarious, always on the edge of trouble. But Jessa Wade is too tempting, too perfect to let go. They’re on a dangerous mission, but they can’t help but get close to the beautiful, innocent artist. When their mission takes them to a foreign land, they reluctantly leave their love behind, promising to return for her one day.

A Woman with a Secret

After her lovers disappeared, Jessa Wade bravely moves on with her life, protecting her secret. But when she becomes the target of one of Burke and Cole’s enemies, the men leap into action, vowing to save their woman and to never leave again. As danger stalks all three, they must come together and face the mistakes of their past. On the run and out of time, Burke and Cole will fight for their future with Jessa.

I am loving this series. The hot men just keep coming. Jessa is a very lucky woman! These books make a girl want to have brothers all to herself! If you want an exciting and sexy book then choose this one!

I love this series!!! But…

This isn’t my favorite book in this series. The rest of the books I’ve listened to multiple times, but this one is like nails on a chalkboard until the last chapter! The narrator does an OK job, but she isn’t my favorite - I really like the ones read by Ryan West for sure!! Also, the FMC is tstl! She continually whines that she was alone, but the guys explain over and over (ad nauseum!) that they were breaking up a human trafficking ring and saving young women!! This needed to be simplified…

But the last chapter of the book was completely worth the rest of the book. However, I’ll stick to the rest of the series.

The story was so-so

I try not to let reviews phase me but previous reviews were UNFORTUNATELY on the money...Even though Cole n Burke constantly explained why they weren’t around after the initial meeting. It was stupid, redundant, and it made Jessa , sound like a whiner. I couldn’t wait for the book to be over I just hate not finishing them...So I guess it didn’t suck bad enough for me to stop it but close....

Confused, but pleased:

After reading the reviews left by previous listeners, I was hesitant to download this story. Although I usually find reviews a very reliable source, I was glad that I did not let the few poor reviews of character development and narrator performance dissuade me from continuing with this series. Both the authors and the narrator dif a super job bringing this story to life. Definitely a worthwhile listen.
