Publisher's Summary

Others see the devil in me. All she sees is her perfect match.

They call me a prodigy in the business world. Rich, powerful, and cunning. At 29 years old, I'm running an empire, built from scratch. The political realm is next. I want my voice heard and my name on the ballot.

But my character credentials are lacking. I need a woman at my side, under contract. Someone with a pretty smile for the public eye, to make me look like a trustworthy, loyal man.

Ann Porter is the woman I want for the job.

Her heart is just as violent as mine, her mind sharp and cunning. Her body willing and begging to be broken - ready to bend at my will. She has the potential to get me where I want to be - or to destroy everything I've worked for all those years. She's the perfect risk.

Violent Hearts is a dark romance with themes of violence and steamy BDSM scenes. Intended for audiences 18+ and not for the faint-hearted. Contains situations some listeners might find objectionable. No cheating, no cliffhangers, and a guaranteed HEA.

I can’t stop laughing

You guys: the male narrator’s voice is HILARIOUSssSSss!!! I can not. Stop. Laughing!!Which, unfortunately, makes this listen not AT ALL sexy. I mean, I feel like I’m listening to my gay best friend try to sound “super manly” and “fierce” *uses jazz hands* I’m tempted to say it’s completely worth the credit, but not for the reasons you’re looking to spend it...

The males voice

this would have been a great book. It seemed so steamy everything was going so well as I listened and then around I'm not sure which chapter you could hear the male character voice taking big deep breath after every few words or lines. It sounded like he was in the midst of an asthma attack and it would really distracting from the story.

No, just no...

Could not finish due to male narrator’s voice performance. Sounded very over the top. Not for me.

Worst Narration ever.

The male narrator was horrible. The story wasn't bad but the other three in the series were so much better.

Biff Summers

This audiobook is near impossible to listen to just because of the male narrator. He sound like the villain in a cartoon. I half expected him to burst out in a “mohaaaa”.
He ruins the whole novel. I could handle five chapters.
Female narrator is great.

excruciating narrator!

I can't tell if the story is any good; the narration makes me cringe. Wasn't able to finish the book although I tried a couple of times.

Great Storyline but......

I started the Violent Series by Linnea May and to date, I love this storyline best. Of the ones I've read so far (3 of 4), this one is the most realistic to me. However, l had some major issues with the storyline.

1. I found way too may repetition from the other books in the series. It always seemed like the hero had the same hairstyles, dressed the same way and was described in the same manner and I just felt like it was a cut and paste from the previous books. There was also a lot of repetition throughout the chapters (repetition of the same exact words to describe a similar scene) that weren't necessary and I just found them to be annoying and made it difficult for me to finish the book.

2. The male narrator, Biff Summers - while I liked the tone of his voice and it fit the role, I had a HUGE problem with his breathing. He was breathing so heavily throughout the book that I started having to tune it out and just focus on the words he was saying. I believe once he works on controlling his breathing while reading he can be a top narrator on Audible.

3. Jae Delane - her performance was good. She executed her parts really well and made me like the character of Ann. Loved how she read the "tough scenes" for Ann and that added value for me.

4. One of the main reasons I like this storyline is that the female character was not described as a timid person who was shy and helpless like the others. She seems to have spunk, her head screwed on and knew exactly what she wanted out of life (as opposed to the others). She took the money because it would benefit a goal she already had outlined in her life and was actually doing a job and not desperately broke and dying for someone to rescue her. The heroine was portrayed as a career driven woman who was on a mission despite her background. Loved how she was portrayed.


5. Of the 3 stories I've read, this one had the best storyline but I felt like it wasn't constructed or planned out properly. There was a lot of disjointed areas where I felt like it skimmed over some important details and gave us too many details of some things that weren't needed. This book had the most believable plot but the author didn't do such a great job in executing it the way I think it could. There was a lot of room for me to add details in my head. The first book "Violent Delight" was waaaaay better in terms of construction but the plot for me was too superficial and because of the effort placed in outlining the story, I consider it a better book.

Male narrator

I enjoyed the story. However, I don’t think the male narrator was right for this story. Instead of sounding powerful and sexy, he sounded a bit creepy. Just the way his voice was quiet and drawn out made him sound like Hannibal Lecter. He would be great for scary stories.
