Summary

"I love the thrill of the chase.”
 

Duncan Rourke is a regular at Heaven’s Ballroom - but no one’s ever caught his eye for longer than a dance or two. Until one boastful, smart mouthed dancer brings him to attention. Duncan is intrigued by Kieran, but when Kieran turns him down flat, the sparks between them need another outlet - a love bet.
 

“Don’t assume you know me.”
 

Omega Kieran Drake hates it when people make assumptions about him - and when Duncan bets that he can make Kieran fall in love with him, Kieran’s ire is raised. It’s the worst sort of assumption. There’s only one problem: Duncan’s winning the bet.
 

Welcome to Heaven’s Ballroom, the most luxurious club in the city - with the hottest omega dancers. This mpreg audio book features a snarky omega, one cocky alpha, and a dare that will rock both of their worlds. This audiobook and every other audiobook in the Heaven's Ballroom series can be listen to in any order.

Really enjoyed it!

Kieran, a sassy omega meets his match in Duncan, an uber suave Alpha. Or is it the other way around? Boy, these 2 men were more than suited for each other - the chemistry, banter and heat between them was so well written and hot!
This can easily be listened to as a standalone (I haven't listened to the first 2 yet, but I will!).
Stephen Van Doren is new to me, but his timbre, tone voice - everything was smoking! He voiced the characters so well, especially both MCs, but every character sounded so good. The narration was well paced, transition between characters, seamless.
I will be looking to listen to more books narrated by Mr. Van Doren.

Brilliant

I really enjoyed listening to this book and following Damien as he tries hard to get Kieran’s attention and once he does they make a bet. Which in the end means that they both fall for each other.

So much fun

Wow! I loved this! It is so much fun...both the story and the narration.

Although I own several books by this author, this is actually my introduction to his work. This is also Book 3 in a series, but I felt perfectly comfortable listening to it as a standalone.

The interactions between Duncan and Kieran are perfect. Right from the moment they meet, the sparks fly and Duncan has his work cut out in winning Kieran over. Both men are charismatic and charming.

I love how descriptive this story is. I could visualise the club and the costumes, the tackiness of another club where Kieran goes for an audition, the food and drink... Feelings are described with the same attention to detail. The heat between them is...well...hot!

The narration is excellent. The voices Stephen Van Doren uses for both main characters bring them further to life. I love the Texan accent of Kieran in particular, although I can't vouch for authenticity as I'm British! I particularly enjoyed the "romantic" scenes. These are so well narrated that I almost blushed!

A Bet To End All Bets

Duncan and Kieran are two men who don’t know the meaning of commitment. They don’t see the need for it and refuse to consider it. This is true, until they meet each other. Both men find that they are experiencing things they never have before. Duncan bets Kieran that he can make Kieran fall in love with him. Kieran is sure that he will be the one to win the bet. As the two men spend more and more time together, a serious connection develops. After a baby enters the picture, these men come to realize that they are meant to be together. Take another visit to Heaven’s Ballroom. You’ll live the warm feeling you’ll leave with. Duncan and Kieran are two men you will want to get to know. Stephen Van Doren has given another great performance! Thanks, Aiden , this one was fantastic.

Love Heaven's Ballroom series

I've read the first too books. This the first audible novel for me. As always, the story line is great. A bet to fall in love. Which one wins the bet but what is the outcome? You can't go wrong with this one. The narrator does an excellent job.

Some bets are guaranteed winners.

Some bets you have to work for and fight to win. Some bets make for mutual winners. Some bets you get screwed.

What if it is all the above? With love thrown in for good pleasure.

Still Good.

Although this is still a wonderful series. Out of the 3 books I've listened to, that were awesome, this one was still good but not that WOW factor. I've come to expect for Aiden B. I couldn't really get in to kurian & Duncan's story. It became uninteresting, and I didn't care for some of Kurian action. One of the characters ( Noah ) I totally love him. He is their voice of reason, along with he's a hoot. Once again Stephen Van Doren is doing a fabulous job with his narration and bringing the characters life. Even though this book was not in my favorites, this will not deter me from continuing with this series.😌

A Good Bet.

Adien Bates has delivered another feel good romance with the help of narrator Steven Van Doren. Keiran and Duncan were so much fun to listen to, both their voices and their antics. It might be the third book in the series but it stands well on its own and just like Keiran and Duncan it’s a good bet.

Kieran & Duncan

"A man like you." I love they keep coming back to this phrase. Kieran and Duncan seem both set in their ways until they meet and a bet struck. Both grow in ways they don't expect and the read is great. I love the narrator.

A pair of sexy flirts

I enjoyed this book. The main characters may not be the most likable guys, since they're both huge arrogant flirts, but that's what makes them a great match. Kieran is a sexy angel and knows how hot he is, and is perfectly happy to enjoy hook ups, and Duncan is a handsome rich player, who is always up for a good time. It is not a wine and roses story, but more about two guys trying to win a bet over who falls for the other first, and how quickly Duncan can get Kieran in bed. They're both funny and flirty and it makes the story fun to hear, and the physical scenes are super hot! The misunderstanding between seemed a little forced, it would been easily solved with some honest talk, but the happy ending was very sweet. The narrator has a really nice, deep voice, but he still gave Kieran a nice softer, tone, which went nicely with his Texan accent and he was very good with the love scenes as well. He read at a nice, natural pace and was pleasing to the ear.

Another Winning Story

I enjoy Aiden's books though this was my first audio book by him. The narrator did a good job of differentiating between characters even in thoughts rather than just when they were speaking. I knew which character's POV the chapter was from even if I picked it up in the middle of the chapter after work or something. Kieran and Duncan made me laugh out loud a few times while listening and I enjoyed their banter. I liked that Kieran made Duncan work for it, but hated that he didn't give in to his feelings as soon as he should have. This story was fun from beginning to end.
