Book one in the Iron Horse MC series
Before I met Smoke, I'd never been kissed - really kissed - by a man, let alone a biker sex god bent on taking my virginity and my heart. I got dragged into the deadly world of the Iron Horse MC by my crazy twin sister, who is engaged to the club's president, and my even crazier mom, who cares only about herself. Smoke has been assigned by the club to keep me safe even though he's everything of which I should be afraid.
He's the kind of man who lives by his own rules and does whatever he wants whenever he wants, but he treats me like I'm something rare and precious, not a socially dysfunctional basket case who has no idea how to love but needs him more than her next breath.
Not that my feelings matter, because if we don't find my mother soon, the only thing I'll have to be worried about is who is going to kill me first.

Im not sure I would
The story line was masked by all the sex so more about sex than the actual plot which actually had potential
This book was hot and I enjoyed it so much I bought 2 more books by the author. WORTH THE CREDIT
"Sexy read, superb narration, dang cliffhanger!"
Absolutely. Sexy scenes with drama and suspense.
Great story to get lost in, and it deviates from the over-used angst we see so much of in this genre. Obviously liked Smoke, but also liked the mix of drama and suspense as well as Swan's background - again, different from the typical.
Unusual for the narration to steal the show, but I have to say it really brought the characters to life, LOVE having dual narrators, I wish more audio's would take note!
Not extreme, no tears, but is is book one
Although really enjoyed the book, I would have held off purchasing it until the second book was out. I normally catch these things, but missed it. I hope book 2 is out soon.
"H.H.HOT ROMANCE, MC DRAMA & I LOVED EVERY MINUTE"
When Smoke is told to secretly watch Storm by the President of the Iron Horse MC he becomes obsessed by her so by the time they finally meet the tattooed, pierced, hot as hell and very Alpha Sargent At Arms is already half in love with her. But it's when Storm is kidnapped and then her life is threatened by the Russia's that Smoke's protective caring side kicks in, he doesn't want to let her out of his sight and is desperate to keep her safe. Then jealousy and possessiveness is added to his feelings so when he realises Storm has a painful reaction when being touched by some people he's all too happy to tell everyone to back off from HIS property.
Storm's a no nonsense waitress, a never really been kissed virgin with 'issues', she's had an unusual tough upbringing and she's been sheltered which makes her mild natured but when riled up she speaks her mind and isn't afraid to kicks ass. Her world comes crashing down after she's kidnapped and, when rescued, she's told her twin sister and Mother are missing, the Russians are after them all and that she is now under the protection of the Iron Horse MC.... and in particular the leather clad Biker sex God called Smoke.
Sparks fly, tension builds, the mystery thickens, clues are unearthed which leads to more questions, the plot twists and all the time Smoke is claiming Storm and introducing her to the pleasures of some hot sex (which includes toys, talk of BDSM and more). A grab you from the start new MC listen with it's interesting colorful members and the plot's building which will hopefully become an explosive MUST HAVE second book. Because this is a 'to be continued' listen, not quite a cliffhanger, but just as annoying.
Worth a credit? I thought this was an action-packed, addictive, just one more chapter listen, mainly told from Storm's POV but there are a few chapters from Smoke's POV too. With a romance that builds sweetly, a mysterious plot that's nicely unfurling, and a loveable H/H who are drooling for each other but what makes this a great listen is the dual narration. Because the male narrator says the male voices and the female narrates the female voices and this, in my opinion, is when dual narrators really work well and Andy Ross' deep voice was so smouldering and sexy. Definitely worth a credit or a buy.
"Great book great narrators hot hot hot"
I love the narrators it's really great when you can have a woman speaking the woman part and the man speaking the man part. Lots of steaming romance plus thrilling drama.
But this is a cliffhanger. I'm going to start book two next. And I can't wait.
I just hope there isn't a book 3 that I have to wait for, since audible does not tell you this when a story has other books. A lot of them not being cliffhangers is fine with me but I really hate listening to a book and not knowing at the end that it's a like
cliff hanger and you have to wait for book 2 or three.
But I greatly enjoyed this book.
But if you're not into dirty talking lovemaking seen this may not be the book for you.
"Too Crude For This Listener & I'm No Prude"

Narrators were professional-4 Stars
Story-I Tried To But Couldn't Listen Due To the Language.More F-Bombs than words. 1.5 Stars
"Wow, wow, wow!"
What a hot start to a new series for Ann Mayburn.
If you are a lover of MC stories this is a must book for you. Ann Mayburn has crafted a very different heroine for this biker book. The trials of the heroine's life were very different than I have read in any other biker novel.
Ann Mayburn first try at the motorcycle club is a big hit with me.
We open the book with us watching a young woman, Swan, who is socially awkward but very beautiful. We learn that a biker named Smoke, has been assigned to watch her. We determine that Smoke is hoping that this would lead to Swan's identical twin sister, Sarah and their mother, Billie, due to the fact they are missing and Billie is wanted for theft of guns and possibly other items from the bike club, Iron Horse and from the Russian mobsters. Though the club is willing to handle the matter among themselves, the Russian mob is out for blood and if they can't have Billie's they will settle for her twin daughters.
Smoke makes his presence known to Swan and lets her know what is going on with her mother and that her twin sister went look for her. Smoke lets everyone know at the club that Swan is his and is off limits. Smoke swears to protect her. Swan finds out the biker club President, Beach, is the "old man" to her sister Sarah.
It seems every one has a stake in finding the two women. The stress and pressure they have Swan under to find her mother and sister is constantly growing.
This book one of a two book series. It is necessary to read the first book before reading the second book.
Though I didn't think I would like it I loved the mixed narration. It was hard to get used to at first but to have a male narrate all the male voices and female all the female was very refershing
I LOVED Swan, she was just this little innocent thing that ends up being so bad ass you don't expect it
I wasn't sure I would like this book based on reviews on Audible and Amazon, but I enjoyed it so much that I had to get the second. Swan, is something special and I really like her. Smoke is like most alpha males in these MC books, so he is super alpha, super bossy and of course super hot.
Good start of an mc series. I do enjoy descriptive sex and this novel provides it. for my taste in this novel, I would have liked a little less drawn out erotic scenes for more of the story, simply because I was enjoying the developing story along with what I can imagine spin off characters with their own tales.
This does end with an incomplete story that one assumes prepares for book two but there's enough of a resolution, one doesn't feel unfulfilled.
I do love this is taking place in Texas, my home state. The accent is not overdone like so many narrators do when faced with country vocabulary. My only confusing is when it refers to east Texas and not explaining how that came about but that's a native thing that doesn't effect the success of the background build up.
I look forward to the next story.
"This book is Exquisite!!!"
Yes it is absolutely addicting! Wonderful narrators! I can't wait for the next one?
Love story between Swan and Miguel! Every women's dream!
Thank You so much and please hurry with the next one!
