You want the mansion?

You want the security?

Not just anyone can rise above and become their equal.

It takes sacrifice.

Review

When it comes to a bully romance there is a fine line that is drawn into the sand. The book can either be very very good and done well or it can miss the mark completely. J.A Huss hits the mark with this series. Right from the first book I was hooked. I had to force myself to go to bed because I just wanted to keep listening.

Bully king was an interesting book. Right when I thought I had everything figured out J.A Huss would throw you a curve ball. A lot of these books can get very redundant and very repetitive. Huss bring new life into this genre. Cadee and Cooper are connected more that ever now. I will stop there because as in with most books I choose to listen this is one book that you really need to go into and just listen blindly. Doing it that way trust me you will not be disappointed.

Book 2 picks up right where book one left off. It is a wild ride. Just like book one you are left in the dark with all of the secrets. But it makes you that much more invested in the story and I think that’s what the author was going for. So finishing the second book took longer than I had been expecting. While the first half of the book was really good by the second half I found a lot of it repetitive and boring. This book is dark that is for sure. Not the darkest book that I have read but not the lightest either. I mean for me one of the biggest turn offs of this book and I don’t know if this is a spoiler but the secret society really seemed to really seemed to be anti-LGBTQ+. This did not sit well with me. The ending was ok. I felt like there were still a lot of questions unanswered. I enjoyed the first book but the second fell short for me.

Jacob Morgan and Emma Wilder are perfect to voice these characters. Jacob Morgan is my one of my favorite male performers. He breaths life into any story that he narrates. There is no one voice actor that stands out over the other. They both shine.

Both of the performers had to put on a British accent as one of the supporting characters is from England. Jacob Morgan performs this accent flawlessly. Emma Wilder if I would’ve known she was American I would’ve believed that she was from England. The voice actors make it extremely easy to understand what they are saying no to characters sound alike. Both of the voice actors tunnel range is impeccable. They really know when to emphasize their words to put emotion behind them and they also know when to back off to create the right mood for what they’re reading. There is a great distinction between each of the characters so that way you know there genders as well as their ages.

Audiobook Review – The Devil’s Riders Books 4-5

Dance with the Devil Audiobook By Joanna Blake cover art

I’m one of the Sons of Satan, part of an inner circle we call The Devil’s Riders. I was just a prospect when I first saw her. Becky Townsdale, the curvy girl who worked at Mae’s diner. She’s so pretty it hurts to look at her. I waited to make a move until I was officially a Devil’s Rider.

And then, the night of the club Prez’s wedding, I made her mine. Devlin and Kaylie might have gotten married that night, but we’re the ones who made a baby. I just didn’t know it yet.

Now she’s back in town to help Mae save the diner before it gets shut down. She’s avoiding me, but I’m not having it. I’ve waited a year to get over her, and it never happened. I want her back, this time for good. And that’s before I find out about the baby. She’s mine, and she doesn’t even know it yet.  

Marked by the Devil Audiobook By Joanna Blake cover art

Women fall into my lap. Until an innocent beauty crosses my path and wants nothing to do with me.

I’m one of the Devil’s Riders, the inner circle of one of the biggest motorcycle clubs in California. My brothers and I live on the edge of society, and we like it just fine.

I’m swimming in easy women, but I’m easily bored. Then one day, I see her: Molly McRae. She’s easy on the eyes and sweet as pie. All I want to do is take a bite.

From the moment I see Molly, I’m on a mission. I chase her down and learn her name. Then I begin my campaign to make her mine.

I want to mark her. I want to tattoo her silky skin and kiss away her tears. 

Hell, I want to put my brand on her. My name. My ring. And I won’t stop until she’s mine.

Contains mature themes.

Review

This is the continuation of my last review books 4-5 there are two more book in the series and I’m still not sure if I’m going to continue with this series. I have loved every book that I have listened to. Joanna Blake is a fantastic author. Each book seriously got better. My favorite has to be book five. These characters I fell in-love with their story. Molly is the first character who is an actual “outsider”. She doesn’t start off knowing any of the other girls from the other for books. Which I thought was a great way to hook the reader.

I will say my only real criticism is going to be that by book five we have ten POVs. Which yes each one for the most part moves along the story. I just feel like it’s to much. I really just want to hear from the two characters that the book is about. Please write more book with the other characters. I mean there are five book that could have been five series that I would have happily sat there and listened to each one of those books. That is how much I love each set of characters. f

Troy Duran and Kendall Taylor are the two amazing voice actors for this series. I love both of them. Troy has a great balance when it comes to voicing both male and female characters. Kendall is great her range is fantastic. I could listen to her all and I have been for the last week.

Audiobook Review – Bound by Lies

Bound by Lies (Bound and Broken Book 2) by [Shea, Rebecca]

Torn between two men; one was what I needed, the other was what I wanted.
One man was safe and the other was dangerous.
But both men would lay down their lives to save me.
ATF agent Sam Cortez is fighting to bring down the Estrada family empire, which was built on murder and corruption.
Alex Estrada did what was needed to keep me safe…and paid with his life.
Starting over as I try to rebuild my life, it’s clear that the past is never what it seems.
What no one knew was that we were all bound by lies.

We are back in the world of Rebecca Shea. I was so excited. I finished the book in one sitting. I have come to one conclusion I HATE Sam. Like I wish we didn’t get his POV at all. Alex and Emilia I would have just loved if it was them two. I mean just them two. I really don’t want to say much because there is HEA and to me that is all that really matters. Rebecca Shea just plays with my heart in this whole book. It was really good. I do recommend this book.

Vikas Adam and Erin Mallon I like them together. Erin is an auto buy for me and Vikas is really good at what he does. However again the female voices can use some work. I will listen to more of his work because he he is a really good narrator.

Audiobook Review – Hugh Deal

Huge Deal audiobook cover art

Even for a top-gun banker, temptation this hot is quite a gamble in a sexy Wall Street romp from New York Times best-selling author Lauren Layne.

An alpha among the wolves of Wall Street, Kennedy Dawson rose to the top of the pack by striking the right contracts at the right times. But there’s one deal that’s been giving him a run for his money – a pact to never again let his assistant, Kate, get under his skin. She may be smart, gorgeous, and sharp as a whip, but she’s definitely off-limits.

Kate Henley isn’t a banker, but she knows a thing or two about risk management – specifically, about managing her attraction to her smolderingly sexy boss. She already fell once, and Kennedy showed no sign of paying a return on her investment. So when Kennedy’s brother starts pursuing her, Kate figures she has the best of both worlds. Jack is charming, rich, very attentive, and the spitting image of his older brother.

It’s also making Kennedy think twice. But to win Kate’s heart, he’ll have to broker the deal of a lifetime…and prove he’s worth the risk.

This was a fun book and a great ending to everyone’s story. We learn a lot about both Kate and Kennedy through out the other two book. So finally getting to their story I was beyond exited. Lauren Layne does not disappoint with this book. I would have to say that this is my favorite book out of the whole series. I think I keep for getting to put in that theses books are told in weeks. Very unique to the story.

If you have not read the other two reviews then you know how I feel about these two voice actors. They are amazing. Teddy and Samatha I can’t wait till I can listen to them as a duo again. They have been added to my auto buy list.

Audiobook Review – Broken Lies

Broken By Lies audiobook cover art

I had no idea how much I would love Alex the day he walked into my life. He changed everything. The way I breathed. The way I thought. The way I loved. He brought me back to life. He gave me strength and a safe place to land. And then he broke me.

Finding Emilia was a chance to do something good for once in my life. I wanted to change. She believed I was her savior. I ached to be. She found her way into my heart and claimed it as her safe place. I should be telling her the truth about me…. Instead I break her with lies.

This book is one hell of a ride. It goes by very quickly. I honestly felt like I finish this book in five minutes. This is a book about Emilia and Alex. I love this duo so much. This book starts off with Emilia and something really bad happens that set her on her way to Phoenix Arizona. It is here that she meets Alex. He is in his early 30s and he is gorgeous. How she meets him is under some really shitty circumstances. She is staying at a city hotel and he feels compelled to help her. So Emilia goes and is invited to stay with Alex at his penthouse apartment. Basically she is there until she can get back on her feet. She gets a job at a coffee house. This is where she met Sam. Sam gets on my nerves in this book. He is trying to get in between Alex and Emilia and I don’t like it. Overall I think Rebecca Shea writes a really compelling story. I mean I truly did feel like I listened to this within five minutes so the fact that I got so sucked and that I kind of was like wow it’s over already tell you something about her ability to write a really good story.

Now onto our narrators. We have Erin Mallon. If you’ve been a reader of my blog for a while you know how much I love her. She is a fantastic voice actress. Every time I hear her I’m just happy because she really brings out the story. This book was no exception it was fantastic. Her range of voices is great she has a different voice for every character and she had to do some accents in this book and I found them to be good. Now we have the male narrator Vikas Adams. This is the first book I’ve heard Mr. Adams read for and he does a decent job. He does have a range of voices and his accents are pretty spot on for the people he has to do them for. Some of this book takes place in Mexico so some of the Spanish accents he had to do sounded spot on. Personally I’m not a fan of his female voices but that’s nothing against him typically when it comes to mail narrators I’m not a fan of when they do a female voice. He kept me engaged and I really liked him voicing Alex I think he did a very good job. When he voiced for Sam I wanted to punch him in the face just because I didn’t like the character. Overall together I think they are a great combination. when it comes to reading they really did bring the story to life for me and I am excited to listen to the next book where they are also narrating together

Audiobook Review – Hot Asset

Hot Asset audiobook cover art

A sexy agent hounds Wall Street’s hottest new wolf in an exhilarating novel from New York Times best-selling author Lauren Layne. Ian Bradley is the definition of a Wall Street hotshot: seven-figure salary, designer suits, and a corner office. His drive off the floor is just as potent. Every woman who knows him has felt the rush. But now he’s met his match in Lara McKenzie – a woman with the power to bring Ian to his knees. An ambitious, whip-smart daughter of FBI agents, Lara is a rising star in fighting white-collar crime. Her latest case – the investigation of Ian Bradley for insider trading – could make her career. 

She knows a scoundrel when she sees one, and Ian fits the bill: a cocky, ridiculously handsome bad boy with a slick swagger. She’ll do anything to prove he’s guilty. He’ll do anything to prove he’s not. But it’s only a matter of time before their fierce battle of wits gets oh so hot and personal. Now taking down Ian has become more than business for Lara. It’s become a pleasure-and there’s more at risk than she ever dreamed.

This is the first book I’ve read it by Lauren Layne. She is a fantastic writer. I found myself really being able to slip into the story with no problem. After reading the last series that I did which was the broken love series by B.B Reid. I knew I definitely needed something that was light hearted. That is exactly what I got with this book. This is not typically my area because it deals with government agents but I knew that I would like it because there was a bad ass guy on Wall Street and I love reading about that.

Lauren writes characters that you want to get to know. Lara was really fun. I really liked all of her dialogue as well as her inner dialogue as well. She says a lot of really funny things. Both of her parents are government agent and that is what she aspires to be. So for Lara Be able to join the FBI she Has to investigate Ian.

Ian is not your typical Wall Street wolf. While he is rich and plans to stay that way he definitely has a soft side. This is what I like to see you he wasn’t handed everything he has he had to work for it. He came from very humble beginnings and it was a great story to kind of get into.

Sarah Hyland as Lara.

When it comes to our narrators Samantha Cook and Zachary Webber are awesome together. This is the first I have heard Samantha narrate and her voice acting is very smooth. Her in fractions on words you can really feel the emotion when she is reading. I think having her there it really did help bring the book to life and the range of voices that she has is incredible. You can definitely tell that she is a pro at this. Zachary is one of my favorite know he is my all-time favorite male narrator. His voice is sex. Anything he reads a instantly love. And honestly he makes books 1000 times better. It is absolutely perfect that the author is so amazing and the two narrators paired together created a true work of art.

10,000 % recommend this book.

Thank you all for joining me here in our little part of wonderland. Please do not forget to feed the unicorns on your way out. As it is the holiday season they are granting wishes. So don’t forget to make a wish because you never know it might come true.

Audiobook Review – Fear US

Fear Us

Keenan 

It’s been four years since I ran away – from home, my brother, and my maybe father. I created a life free of expectations while pretending I wasn’t being hunted by all of the above. I managed to stay under the radar all this time…or so I thought. When big brother shows up and saves my ass, I’m forced to face everything I left behind, including her. 

Sheldon 

It’s been four years since I became another statistic. I made a lot of mistakes when it came to Keenan Masters. The first was loving him at all. He took something from me the night he left, and when I told him I still loved him, he told me he’d always hate me. After that, I learned how to be okay…until he came back. Gone was the boy who always knew how to make me laugh, and in his place was a cold, arrogant monster.

hello wonderlandians. I figured I would try starting out there of you like that instead of starting it up at the top let me know what you guys think. So this is book 3 of the broken love series. This is probably so far my least favorite book in the series. If you read my other review fear you then you know I’m on book 5 as I’m writing this review. If you have not read my first two reviews of the series fear me and fear you please go read those before you read this review.

I have to put a big ass trigger warning because there is a lot of triggering things in this book. I may not get all of them but I will try my best so here we go manipulation, obsession, possession, rape, death threats, psychological warfare. I don’t know there was a lot to this book and I found it weirdly intriguing. This is a dark romance novel.

Already so onto the review this book follows Keenan and Sheldon. Keenan and Sheldon are in the very first book I didn’t mention them in my review because in all honesty I really wanted to focus on the two main characters from the first to book and Keenan and Sheldon really aren’t featured much in the second book so I didn’t think it was prevalent to mention them. But basically Keenan is the cousin of Keiran. Sheldon is the sister of their best friend Dash. Who I will talk about in the next review because he is the Male MC of that book.

So things happen in book 2 that make Keenan leave and this book jumps four years ahead. So to give you a little bit of background Keenan was a very fun loving and funny guy. He was also very easy-going. There was an event that happened in book 2 that made him change over the course of four years.

Sheldon was a very Spitfire kind of girl. She didn’t take shit from Keenan and I really appreciate her character. She went through a lot in the first book and she really wasn’t in the second book.

I believe I said in my review before that there were certain aspects of this book that I just feel weren’t necessary and to be completely honest I felt like everything that happened in this book wasn’t really relevant to the overall story. Actually I believe I said that each book has two storylines you have the big storyline that runs through all five books and then each sub book also focuses on the relationship between two characters. There is an event that happens in this book that I feel can push the overall story line but at the same time I feel like what was the point of it because a lot of the book was about Keenan and Sheldon and not the overall story line. It was about them kind of finding their way back to each other while this event was going on. So in my mind the big event that’s going on there really wasn’t much focus on that even though there should’ve been. I don’t know I just feel like the book overall was unnecessary and I would’ve liked to just continue with Lake and Keiran.

This saddens me because I really like these two characters I just wish that the event that happened honestly what takes place in book for and book 5 really don’t didn’t need box 3 to push the agenda along if that makes sense. I honestly feel like this book was a filler. I didn’t joy it it’s just I felt like it was completely unnecessary to the overall big story. And I feel like I keep repeating myself but this is honestly how I feel.

We are back with Ava Erickson and Teddy Hamilton. I gave all my thoughts on them in my last review my opinion has not changed I think they are wonderful together and I feel like they really add an extra layer to the story that I wouldn’t have gotten if I was just reading it myself.

Now when it comes to the overall production of the audiobook I am not a sound engineer so I really don’t know what goes into making an audiobook. I will say this it sounded very professional there were no weird skips or pauses in any of the chapters. The sound wasn’t distorted while listening to it. There are some audiobooks I listen to and it sounds like it was recorded in a zoo this was not that so I’m quite happy with the overall production of the audiobook it was quite professional.

How are you guys liking the new these reviews of this series. I wanted to do reviews individually instead of as a series because each book I have very deep thoughts on not very deep thoughts but I do have the lights on and I thought it would be best to talk about them individually it is a dark romance so please heat up my trigger warning at the beginning of this review.

Thank you all for joining me here in our little part of wonderland. Please do not forget to feed the unicorns on your way out. They do love their treats. And as you guys know at this time of the year they are granting wishes so if there’s something that you’ve been wishing for don’t hesitate to make a wish it may or may not come through.

Audiobook Review – Heart Throb

He was just another dad at my daughter’s school. Another very hot, “former teen heartthrob” dad. One I couldn’t get involved with.

Lennox Reign was the hottest teen star, over 15 years ago. Now, he’s staring me daggers across the principal’s office.

Not my fault my daughter got in trouble the first day of school and I seem to have “bad mom” stamped on my forehead.

But now, not only do I have to see Lennox and his very grown-up body at school drop off, but we’re working together on the school bake sale.

If he could just stop being a brooding heart-breaker for like two seconds…

He says he wants to keep the past in the past and move forward with his life, but the closer we get and the more I uncover, the more I can’t help falling for the former actor.

The one who I know could easily break me.

And he will.

Review

Don’t look at the disclaimer out of the way. I did receive a code for free in exchange for an honest review. This in no way hinders my personal opinions on this book as you guys know I am always straightforward and honest about how I feel about that. Now that that’s over with let’s get on into the review.

This is a new to me author. Magan Vernon was such a delight to read her book. Although the book is very short it’s 4 1/2 hours long. There is a a lot of content smashed into a very short time period. It typically I’m not a fan of super short audiobooks because I feel like an author is trying to put a full story into a short amount of time. I don’t feel like the author typically takes their time and the story is rushed.

I do believe that the author did a good job of telling the story in such a way that we got all of the information that was relevant. Do I feel like the story could have been expanded to make it longer absolutely. I thought that this was just going to be wrapped up in a nice little bow and everything would be done by the end of the book that is not the case if you’re not a fan of cliffhangers you will not be a fan of this book. But the second book is out so you can just automatically go and get the e-book or physical copy and read it for yourself. Let me tell you that is what I’m going to go do because this cliff hanger. It’s got me hungry I need to finish this duet. Am I sad that the audiobook for the second book is an out? That question is yes because as you guys know I do prefer audiobooks over all other forms. But we will be getting the e-book.

Magan‘s writing style is great. There’s a great ad in flow to her writing you can just sit down and get lost in this world. That’s what happened for me. When a book has the ability to take me away from my troubles are the stress from my day I know the author is doing their job. When the author is writing the dialogue because for me a story yes the setting and the descriptions are super nice but I’m very much dialogue focused. The author writes it in such a way that you feel like you’re part of that conversation. For me that’s what I look for I don’t want anything that feels forced or sounds weird to my ears. Does the Avenue and flow of natural conversation is what I like. And Magan gives me that in every single chapter. When it comes to the main character I absolutely love her she’s a single mom and I don’t read too many books about single moms and single dad’s. But I absolutely loved it so 10 out of 10 recommend this book to you.

Now when I first for the narrators name Hannah Baker. All I can hear in my head is welcome to your tape.

Anyway Miss Hannah baker is a new narrator to me as well. So we are getting a lot of firsts in this post. Hannah did such an amazing job and you guys know I’m very picky about my narrators. She had a really good range when it came to the voices. There weren’t too many because it was such a condensed time but for the characters that we did have it there was individual voices for each of them. Extra points for her pulling off little kids voices. She enunciate really well there were no other accents except a southern one and I thought she pulled it off really well it sounded truly authentic.

Since I’m not a sound engineer everything sounded good. I have no complaints they were new awkward pauses there was no background noise so all in all I think the engineers did a great.

Will you guys be checking out this book if you do leave me a comment to let me know? If you read this book what are you guys think about it leave me a comment?

Until next time

Happy reading

Audiobook Review – Fear Me

Fear Me audiobook cover art

This isn’t another “I hate you because I secretly love you” story. Boy really does hate girl. And this isn’t just a forbidden love story. This is obsession at its darkest.

I don’t believe in fairy tales and Prince Charming.

I believe in fear.

He taught me how to be afraid.

We first met on a playground on a wonderful summer day. It was the first time he hurt me and it wouldn’t be the last. For 10 years, he’s been my tormentor and I’ve been his forbidden. But then he went away, and yet I was still afraid.

Now, he’s back, and wants more than just my tears. You see…he thinks I sent him away so now he wants revenge…and he knows just how to get it.

This book is a complicated one for me. There are many aspects of this book that does not sit well with me. It’s a dark romance. Typically when it comes to dark romances I do read the reviews 1st because I want a better understanding of why this book has really high ratings or why a book has low ratings. This audio book had some very high rating. It seems like the general consensus seems to really enjoy the book.

I want to give you a little look and to the process of my brain while taking notes for this audiobook review.

  • LAKE TRYING TO SAVE THE PEOPLE SHE LOVES

  • LAKE HAS BEEN THREATEN FOR 10 YEARS

  • LAKE TELLS KNOW ONE 

  • LAKE TRIES TO FIGHT BACK AGAINST KIERAN 

  • THIS IS A BAD IDEA 

  • SHE SHOULD HAVE PLAYED ALONG UNTIL SHE HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET AWAY 

  • KIERAN BULLY, PSYCHO, POSSESSIVE, CRUEL, MANIPULATIVE 

  • LAKE AND KIERAN ARE IN HIGHSCHOOL 

  • THE MC SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST 10 YEARS OLDER

  • THOUGH THAT WOULD NOT REALLY MAKE THE STORY BETTER 

  • THIS IS A DARK ROMANCE 

  • LAKE HAS STOCKHOLM SYNDROME

  • KIERAN FLIP FLOPS THERE ARE MOMENTS WHEN IT SEEMS LIKE HE CARES ABOUT BUT THEN IN ANOTHER BREATH THREATENS TO KILL HER OR THE ONES THAT SHE LOVES

  • LAKE KEPT DOING THINGS TO PISS OFF KIERAN 

  • WHEN LAKE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO CLEAR HER NAME SHE SAID NOTHING UNTIL FORCED TO 

  • NOW THAT WE ARE IN THE LAST FOUR HOURS OF THIS BOOK IT SEEMS LIKE A DIFFERENT STORY 

  • DOES THIS MEAN CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT

  • THEY ARE SIMI ACTING LIKE A NORMAL TEENAGE COUPLE 

  • THEN THEY DON’T ACT LIKE A NORMAL COUPLE 

  • SHE KIND OF STARTS GETTING THE ANSWERS SHE WANTS 

  • SHE REALLY DOES ASK ALL THE WRONG QUESTION 

  • THEN SHIT HAPPENS AND THEY ACT LIKE A “NORMAL” COUPLE 

  • MORE SHIT HAPPENS AND THEN EVERYTHING GOES TO HELL 

So as you can see above that is my whole thought process while I was listening to this book. I have to put a big ass trigger warning because there is a lot of triggering things in this book. I may not get all of them but I will try my best so here we go manipulation, obsession, possession, rape, death threats, psychological warfare. I don’t know there was a lot to this book and I found it weirdly intriguing. This is a dark romance novel. The events that happen in this book are very unrealistic. I’m not even gonna go into the plot of this book again I had to take a very clinical approach to listening to this book. The author weaves a tale two high school kids. One wanted to see the other ones suffer. The main male character has a very messed up past. Which does lead to his actions of a threatening lake all the time. Now I’m not saying that what he’s gone through as an excuse for him to treat lake the way that he does. I’m just stating I can understand why he is the way that he is. Also there is child pornography in this book so if that triggers you please do not read this book.

Once again started reading comments on this book because when I first started listening to it it wasn’t at all what I thought it was. This is the type of book that needs trigger warnings. There is none so I am definitely going to have to deduct points from this because there is no trigger warning and there needs to be. So overall I’m gonna give the book about a two stars because of the content of the book it kind of was confusing but it intrigued me enough to where I did listen to the second book and I will listen to the third box because I have invested 22 hours into this book series that I might as well just goOnto reading the other three books. I really want to see where all of this ends.

Basically the gist of the story is lake moved to six Forks when she was eight years old she was on the playground trying to help this boy but the mail main character Kiernan decided that he hated this girl because of something that happened in his past. We basically torments her for 10 years and then he basically it’s on the way Juvenile detention on a drug charge he gets out he thinks lake is the one who set him up but the reality of the situation is lake did not set him up and so he is on a mission to take her virginity and basically break her.

He doesn’t really end up breaking her in all reality he ends up falling for her more so than he wants to. He wants to be this person who doesn’t give a shit about other people but sadly that’s not the case.

I have finished the second book for my review on that will be up in a couple of days. I want to say the redeeming quality of this whole novel was Eva Erickson. She is a fantastic narrator I love everything that she’s ever read. So I will continue to listen because I have a goal to listen to everything that she is narrated it so yeah

Audio Book Series Review – The Mount Trilogy

Hello, wonderlandians. I hope all is well with all of you. How is your year going so far. Mine is great. I have gotten some books listened to. I have figured out that I’m going to have get really craft when it come to how I read this year. Since I am really in my last year of school. I know I just started. This program that I’m in is only about a year and half long. Between working two jobs and schools audiobooks are going to be my saving grace. So I have listened to this audiobooks in the wee hours of the morning. I wake up at five so I have an hour and half of listening time. I listen on my way to and from work. Then I listen on my lunch brake. I do have some e-books that I have to get through so I read those at night as a way to unwind. Any way lets get on with this series review.

The Mount Trilogy ——–> Get the book audiobooks HERE.

Ruthless King audiobook cover art

New Orleans belongs to me. You don’t know my name, but I control everything you see – and all the things you don’t. My reach knows no bounds, and my demands are always met. I didn’t need to loan money to a failing family distillery, but it amuses me to have them in my debt. To have her in my debt. She doesn’t know she caught my attention. She should’ve been more careful. I’m going to own her. Consume her. Maybe even keep her. It’s time to collect what I’m owed. Keira Kilgore, you’re now the property of Lachlan Mount.

I’m his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt.

I tell myself I hate him, but every time he walks into the room, my body betrays me. How can I want him and fear him in the same moment?

They told me he’d mess with my head. Make it go to war with my body.

But I didn’t realize it would be complete anarchy.

I should’ve known better. When Mount’s involved, there are no rules.

I will not surrender. I will not show weakness. I’ll stand my ground and make it out of this bargain with my heart and soul intact.

But he has other plans….

The Mount Trilogy concludes with Sinful Empire!

What’s mine, I keep, and that includes Keira Kilgore.

It’s no longer enough to have her in my debt. No longer enough to own her body.

I want something more.

She can try to resist, but I’ll never give her up.

Nothing will keep us apart.

Not her. Not my enemies. No one.

Her debt will only be paid one way – with her heart.

Sinful Empire is the third and final book in the Mount Trilogy.

Review

I really don’t where to start with this series. I have so many thoughts running through my head. So this review might be a little scatter and for that I’m sorry but that is just how I’m feeling right now about this series. Let me start off with the writing of the books. I found that Meghan has a great flow when she writes her books. You get sucked in right away. You fall in love with characters. Which was the case with The Mount Series.

Keira Kilgore and Lachlan Mount are amazing together. To me this book good and solid surface story. What I mean by surface story is that we have to wait until the end of the second/third book to get any real character development or any deep movement to the story line. Truly I don’t mind it. I just feel like something was missing or I was waiting for something big to happen but hey it kept me entertained for 15 hours.

Grace Grant and Joe Arden are magic together. These are two of my favorite narrators. Anything Grace Grant reads I am here for. Same goes for Joe Arden.

All in All I give this book a 3 out 5.
