Summary

Kenna 

My father shocked not only me, but everyone around him when he announced his retirement. He isn’t just any man - he’s Jorge Vernon and Miami bows down to him. In most cases, his role would pass down to his son, however he doesn’t have any, and that leaves only one heir - me. 

He knows how much this city means to me, it fuels my fire and the people here matter to me more than anything. 

There’s a catch though, he isn’t just handing me keys to the city. I have to rule alongside one of two men that my father has hand-chosen for me. Oh, and they’re brothers. 

But what happens when enemies rise from the unknown? When people that you thought you could trust turn out to be the ones you should have feared in the first place? 

I thought this would be easy, but it turns out that it may end up getting me killed, and possibly the two men who I’m supposed to pick between.

Against all Odds.

Loved listening to the audiobook, the story was well written and the characters were intriguing. Phoenix runs an MC and his twin brother Ascher street racers the twins have not seen eye to eye on anything they even hated each other. Kenna has been given a choice by her father, with choosing one of the twins to marry to help run the business. There was a lot of emotions, adrenaline pumping, action packed that does keep you on the edge of your seats with the twists and turns. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend buying the book or audiobook, it is so worth it. I loved listening to the voice of the narrator, he made you feel you were there.

Woman Pres!

Wow Kenna is bada$$ I mean holy moly do not mess with this lady. There are some hot Alphas in this book and some real ignorant bad guys. I was captivated by this story, I didn’t want to stop listening. I loved the characters and their MC. I have never listened to a book where a female has any say in an MC, so this was kind of cool. The narration was terrific, I definitely recommend this book. 🎧Audiobook Obsession

Captivating

Captivating story, I had already read the book and I was looking forward to listening to it too, it was really good to hear it come to life. though I prefer dual narrators, Logan didn't do a bad job of portraying Kenna.

Action packed, edge of your seat romance

Kenna is set to take over the streets of Miami after her father retires. Since this should really go to a son, her father makes her choose a brother to rule by her side. When she chooses Phoenix, things go haywire and the action picks up. The suspense in this book is intense. I found myself not able to put this book down. I was on the edge of my seat and holding my breath during intense scenes. I loved all the feels I felt as I listened to this book. Logan McAllister is a great narrator for this book. He makes the suspense so intense. Mr. McAllister was able to keep all the characters distinct and separate. I found it very easy to follow the story, and I got pulled into it. I enjoyed his narration of Phoenix. Phoenix is a strong, alpha male, yet Logan narrates him to have strong emotions. Logan McAllister brought this story to life.

Great MC book

I love when a book shows both sides of a story. I really like when the heroine of the the story is a bad ass that don't take no bull. I enjoyed this book and can't wait to read/ listen to book two. Logan McAllister did wonderful job on this one.

Strong Men....Stronger Women!!

Kenna - the only daughter to Jorge Vernon(Daddy), who is retiring from leading the streets of Miami. Ideally they want a man in this role so Kenna needs to step up to the plate and show these men she's not afraid to step over them or on them to take her rightful spot as the leader. Daddy insists Kenna rule the city along side one of 2 twin brothers. When word gets out Jorge is retiring, threats and bullets fly and Kenna has to remain strong to show she's up for the job even if it kills her. I really liked the strong savy character Kenna was in this book....I look forward to her BFF Winny in another book. She seems like she's got more spitfire than Kenna but not as much class. Looking forward to it. Logan McAllister did a terrific job narrating this story to the point you actually felt like you were on site when some of the events took place - fantastic!

Kenna and Phoenix

This is book 1 of the full Throttle series and it was great. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Phoenix is president of the MC and Kenna is the daughter of Miami's mob boss. She has to choose between Phoenix and his twin brother Asher to marry and run Miami when her father retires. This book has plenty of action and romance. Logan McAllister did a great job with the narration. I received this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Intense and Action-Packed!

NOLA504NERDS BLOG This is an honest review for an [audiobook] ARC received. Kenna Vernon’s father “runs” Miami. He announces his retirement and tells Kenna if she wants the keys to the city, she’ll have to choose a man to run it with her. Kenna is fine with this as she feels that marriage is about power, not love. He gives her two men to choose from - twin brothers, Phoenix and Asher. Phoenix is the president of The Devil’s Ash MC. Asher moved to California where he works with his passion, cars. Phoenix loves Miami just as much as Kenna and her dad. He believes that Asher would tear the city apart for his own well-being and to hell with the people who live there. Phoenix won't let that happen, and he won't push Kenna into something she's not comfortable with. Will Kenna choose the right man to run the city with? Against All Odds is a great start to this new series. It’s fast paced and intense with loads of suspenseful action. Erin Trejo and Elizabeth Knox are new authors for me. I was not at all disappointed! Kenna is an independent and sassy young woman who isn’t afraid of anything. Phoenix is a strong, fearless and protective alpha male. Asher needs an attitude adjustment, but you can see that he has the same redeeming qualities as his twin. All 3 are cunning and dangerous. I would describe the sex in this book as extreme, bold, and dirty. There was one part in particular that made me feel like I needed to go to church to beg forgiveness and confess my sins. My main sin being that I rewound that part 3 times. *cue hot flash* Sweet baby Jaysus on a Harley, this book was dirty in the very best way! I highly recommend this book! The only con I have is that there wasn’t enough depth to the HEA. By that I mean, it happened way too quickly. There wasn’t enough substance there to make it believable for me as ‘love’ versus respect and lust. But that’s just based on my personal preference, and doesn’t take any points from my 5-star review. I’m dying for the 2nd book! Narrator Logan McAllister did a great job bringing this story to life. He portrayed each character very well, giving each one their own voice. It’s clear that he puts a lot of heart into what he does. Thank you, Logan McAllister. 5 DIRTY STARS! NOLA504NERDS BLOG

Awesome

Against All Odds by Elizabeth Knox and Erin Trejo is and awesome read. This is the story of Kenna and Phoenix. Kenna is the daughter and only child of the mob boss of Miami. In order for Kenna to get Miami when her father retires she needs to marry either Phoenix or his twin brother Ascher. Phoenix is the President of the Devils Ash MC who also wants to run Miami. When Kenna and Phoenix meet for the first time there is an immediate very strong attraction between them. Kenna isn't afraid to get her hands dirty. Even though Kenna is a strong woman Phoenix wants and needs to protect her and wants to stand beside her. Will outside forces come between them? Will they get their HEA? This book is full of twists and turns, fast paced action, highs and lows. I absolutely loved this story and can't wait to read the next book by these two wonderful writers. I definitely recommend this book.

Whoa!

I enjoyed this story so much. I already love Erin Trejo and Elizabeth Knox and the combo with this story was amazing. The way this story went took me by surprise, in a good way. There's action and some suspense and danger and passion. The narrator did a great job bringing the characters to life as well.

Oh boy, oh boy!! This is one of those stories that once you start listening you won’t want to stop until it’s over!! This is this first co-written story by Elizabeth Knox and Erin Trejo and it’s full of everything, powerful men and women, on your seat suspense, WTH moments, laughter and just when you think you figured it out they throw us a curveball. I can’t wait to see what these two give us next in the Full Throttle series. 🖤🔥☠️🔥🖤

Great Story & Narration🎧 Captivating & Intense!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it is well written with interesting storylines that captivated me from start to end. Kenna’s father Jorge Vernon is the Kingpin of Miami, he is stepping down and Kenna is ready to take over for him. He tells her she needs to marry and she must choose a husband that will be beneficial and strengthen her power. He gives her two choices and they are twin brothers, Phoenix is the president of a local MC and Ascher who runs a car club. She sets out to meet them and will chose the one she feels will benefit Miami the most. Not all marriage are made from love, like hers it will be more of an arrangement. But all that changes when she meets the brothers and winds up having great chemistry with one of them. Phoenix and Ascher have been at odds for a while now, but Phoenix wants Miami and is determined to get it. I loved how everything plays out in this book, it is well plotted with plenty of drama, action, some twists, thrilling suspense and the start of a great romance. Elizabeth Knox and Erin Trejo, thank you for this great story, I am looking forward to what comes next in the “Full Throttle” series. Logan McAllister is a terrific narrator and voice performer. He does a great job portraying the characters, bringing them to life by giving each their own voice, personality and attitude. You could hear how much heart he puts into his work as projects the character’s passion & emotions into his performance. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank for you for another awesome listen🎧

MC Alpha

For a MC book, this seemed a bit tame for my taste. I still enjoyed the story but I’m used to a little more resistance instead of insta-love. I did end up feeling invested in the story and will likely look into more of the series.

against all idds

I liked that after all the beef between Asher and Phoenix, Asher keeps trying to help Phoenix save his woman. Many secrets come to light. Betrayals, action, and heat abound. A lot packed into an entertaining storyline and I enjoyed it. The narration was good. I voluntarily listened to this and am giving an honest review.
