Nice ending

Nice ending on the Westmorland serie. Guess it will continue with the Outlaws.
Nice finally getting the story of Bane & Christal. It's filled with romance, passion, crime, friendship and family- love this book

Great story

I love Bane and Crystal's story. It is full if intrigue and excitement as well as danger. A live story only Brenda Jackson could write.

Bad narration takes away from the book

What would have made Bane better?

Better narration

Who was your favorite character and why?

Bane was a little more realistic

How did the narrator detract from the book?

long drawl and country twang from each character made my skin crawl

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Bane?

Crystal being so "stupid" and naïve

Crystal's Voice

Is driving me crazy. It is so whiny I couldn't listen to this book. I had to revert to reading it instead of listening. Before others go crazy I purchased both versions because my eyes get tired and listening really helps. Another great book from Mrs Jackson but I could not enjoy the audible version. As a previous reviewer stated Band's was excellent but the Crystal voice prevented me from enjoying the audible version. THIS IS ANOTHER BJ MUST READ.

Narrator

The big was GOOD but I didn’t care for the narrator... Please use Ron Butler or Avery next time.

Bad narrator

I enjoy the Westmoreland series and was looking forward to listening to this book however I may not even be able to finish the book because of the narrator. Crystal’s voice is grating my nerves.

Hard to listen…

I must be honest and say the book was great and I love Ms Jackson’s work but this narrator was disappointing! Monotone and robotic

Brenda Jackson did it again...She is the best!

Brenda Jackson books are such great reads. I love Bane, we all should have a protector and a soul mate to love us this strong.

Sorry it took me so long to get to this book. Long over due.

Enjoyed the narrator. Like his ability to change his voice for different people. His female voice was a little nasally. I felt BadAss Bane’s voice needed to be a bit richer. Just my opinion. The voice he used for Dillon was to die for.

Story was good as always. Always enjoy Brenda Jackson’s work. It didn’t disappoint to show the reconciliation and healing from their separation.

First audible download for a Brenda Jackson book. 😊👍🏾 I’m ready to purchase more.

The saga continues with a different storyline

So glad that the storyline for this book was different from the other books! It’s time to add a different flavor to the mix. Sean did a good job with narration. I enjoyed the drama and issues that arose and the way issues were resolved. Hoping different storylines continue in series books.
