Summary

The last thing she needs after running from one monster is to land in the lair of the devil.

Twenty-one-year-old Ember flees her past with soot on her face, ash in her hair, and a promise. She'll never let another man take away her freedom and treat her like she means nothing. But that is exactly what Maverick Gunn, leader of the notorious Harbingers of Chaos motorcycle club, seeks to do from the moment his lethal gaze locks on her. He burns her with every look. Every touch. Every word. Ember's only hope is to convince him she's nothing like the woman who blackened his soul before he drags her down into the darkness with him.

Warning: for a mature audience, 18+. Contains adult sexual situations and language.

Fantastic duo narration!

The whole story really demands a lot of thought and composure, but I'm not totally sure I can do that.

This is by far the longest book I've listened to at almost 18 hours, it's taken me a full working week to get through it, and that means a lot to me. My time is very precious. I can never fit enough in as it is, without dedicating myself to this kind of book.

However, from the very beginning, Honey does the most fantastic job in the eyes of Ember to draw you in and totally consume everything you're thinking and feeling. Ember has been through the worst thing you could imagine in life, to be trapped and abused by the man she loved. Stronger than you think she burned the house down and ran for her life, with little money and hardly any belongings.

It is that start out on her own that really sets alight her character, and this is a fantastic shout out to the writer for making her as wonderful and round as she is. She's got issues of course, but she wants to trust and love and that is fab, even if it at first turns to crap with the two women at the shelter.

The journey that Red/Ember embarks on just because some youngster gave her $5 will be one that is full of twists and turns and emotional upheaval that no woman should ever really go through. I'm so in awe of her and I totally love her.

But that does bring me to Mav/Luce... or what ever other name he gets in the beginning.

He's kinda a turn off. He's hurt of course and I do understand that. But the bikers I know, and love. (I'm a biker chic and know some UK gangs) ..... well I just can't see a guy leading a club being like this. I really struggle with his identity at the beginning. It's not something that I can understand. This is I think down to the writer and how she's wanting to portray things, but I think she could have kept his character and given us something to think about without the need to make Mav be as weak and almost just totally stupid in the beginning.

The book and narration on the whole I would never have guessed as being so long. Because I really did enjoy what Ember went through. There was of course hot sex and wanting more towards the middle and that was great. Wonderful attention to detail here. And from both sides of the narration. I wasn't left with anything to think about, because it all was there. Their romance and get together was pretty good.

The religious side to Mav, also didn't bother me too much, though I do wonder if any guy would have taken their new love down to the old house and show them everything that they were so openly, and then totally blow it out the water when Ember's real father and situation come to life... I did also find that a stretch... a dramatic one, but yeah, still a stretch.

Ember also lasting as long as she did, with a full on bullet wound... eeek she's so strong yet so weak.

The last two hours here were fab. I really loved the rescue and the conclusion with Warner. He did deserve to be tortured though....


As for the HEV I'm glad that things worked out for Ember, and the fact she went back to help Ivy, really good. I don't know if there are more stories here, but I really think there is. And I want more.

As long as it was, as complicated as it was, this was one of the most interesting books I've listened to..

Great choice on narrators, and I hope that the author continues to use these so very talented people. They really brought this story to life for me.

:) i hope I can listen to more in the future.

Amazing Listen

Any additional comments?

What truly makes this a 5 star for me was the narration! When having more than one narrator this is how it should be done. I have not read this book but I can tell you now it would not be the same, there is no way the book could be better than the audio. This started out as a good story but when the dual narration kicks in with each doing their own genre I was wowed away. When the story starts out it is a little confusing you know what is happening and it is bad but you do not know the why of it until much later. It is an audio you won’t be able to put down giving you a very high entertainment that will leave you holding your breath. This starts off with a house burning, a women escaping and on the run it takes you through her paces as she runs from town to town until she stops and the story really takes off.


Mav is something else from the start you just have to step back and so wooooooooo chill man. He has his own story to tell as he lives a battle of his past let made him what he is today. One women tore his world apart another comes into it, she won’t get the chance to do what was done before her. Can one woman give him back his life and hope of a future or will she tear him down?


Ember is way too innocent to be on the run trusting when she should not. Running out of money and her ex hot on her trail she has few options. One cop and one stranger change her life with no turning back she has made her choices for good, bad or even death they have been made. One man she is scared to death of she left behind another steps before her way to handsome for his own good but lord he is even scarier than the one she left behind or is he?


Mav and Ember are very strong characters neither taking much off the other. She needs to stay he wants her gone who will win in this tug of war? Mav comes across as a total jerk where Ember is sweet. They are very much attracted to each other but neither wants the other to know. This was a wonderful MC story that has a touch of everything in it. You have danger, over the top sex, homeless people, and a crazy nut case ex, just everything that makes this an outstanding story.


Honey Scarlett, Leeroy Will narration was out of this world each hitting tones right on the money. You know just who is talking and what they are feeling. For me they made this audio what it is any other narrators would just not do it justice. Honey takes on the life of all the female roles with Lerroy taking on the male. Their many different voices were outstanding never leaving you guessing who was talking and just how they felt. There are no background noises or any places where the volume are higher or lower or tones off. They give you a listen you won’t be able to put down. If they took a break you cannot tell it is just one smooth listen that hooks you from start to finish. I found things to do so I wouldn’t have to turn it off. They made you feel the emotions at times you even wanted to cry and lord did they make you laugh. Just outstanding narration at the finest. I can’t wait to listen to more from this duo.


The author gives a well put together story which is long. With most all story the filler is just too much. Here the author fills it will many different issues and plots as she twist and turn her way through giving you a wonderful listen with lots of danger. There are stories inside of stories with many wonderful characters I can’t wait to read more about. The ending is wow as danger comes to their door. I loved the many different characters as each of them took a piece of my heart. Yep there were bad bikers but had a heart of gold for those they love. Just when you think you have a handle on the story the author changes it blowing your mind. There is always something exciting going on with lots of drama to follow. I found this to be a believable story that really took my breath away. The author gives you a wonderful plot with exciting wonderful characters. This was so outstanding I can hardly wait for the next one to come out.

Easily one of the best I've EVER heard.

The strong storyline combined with outstanding narration grabs your imagination and doesn't let go for a second. (And don't worry- there are plenty of red-hot scenes, too 😉) Go, go, go! No more wasting your time reading the next hundred reviews that will back me up- just get it already!

Fabulous.... amazing....

the one thing that I absolutely love about this story is it had both male and female narrators... That is something that always stands out for me in an audiobook. I am giving as many stars as I can... The storyline was absolutely amazing and both characters really have this Vibrance about them... They both have these deep and dark pasts... And they are trying everything they can to overcome them with steps and bumps along the way... if you want a truly good romance story with a little bit of Edge and sassiness and a lot of delicious sexiness... This is definitely the story for you... the reason I'm not giving any hints about the story in my review is that I don't want it to be ruined for anyone else... But I will tell you that you will not be disappointed...

Loving this dual narration style

What made the experience of listening to Burning Ember the most enjoyable?

I really enjoyed the narration style of this book. I also felt the narrators really brought the each respective character (not just the hero and heroine) to life. Everyone had a very distinctive voice and there were a lot of side characters in this book. It was like listening to a movie.

What other book might you compare Burning Ember to and why?

None because I don't read many MC books.

What does Honey Scarlett and Leeroy Will bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It was everything. I really enjoyed their work and cant wait to listen to more from them.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I didn't not listen in one sitting because it was really long. But it was not because the book was not enjoyable.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this book. Aside from the length, I really liked how the MC life was depicted in this book. I haven't read many MC books because they don't really seem romantic to me but I liked how the MC life and a normal life melded in this book. I really did enjoy the narration style. This is becoming one of my favorite ways to listen to a book. The audio did have some issues in the beginning but it didn't make listening to the story enjoyable. This is the first book I have listened to from this author and I feel she did a really good job.

Steamy MC Romance!!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Burning Ember to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version, but I highly doubt it could've been any more perfect than listening to it. I get so much more emotion out of a book by listening. Especially when it's read by two great narrators.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved Ember and how strong she was.

What about Honey Scarlett and Leeroy Will ’s performance did you like?

Omg, I think I may have found another dual narration couple to love. I have been having a difficult time finding another dual narration that really holds my attention. I love Honey's voice. It's as smooth as, well, honey. And Leeroy has an amazing range of voices. Not one character sounds like the other. His voice was super sexy.

Any additional comments?

This book was the first of a few things for few. It was the first time I've read an MC Romance. It was the first time I have read this author. And it was the first time I have listened to these two narrators. I have to say I cannot wait to read more. I hope the author sticks with these narrators because they are absolutely perfect. I would also love to read more by this author. The writing was absolutely fantastic and it gave me a clear picture in my mind. Burning Ember was everything I look for in a steamy romance and I can't wait to see what's next.

Wow! Steamy hot!!

Wow!!! What an awesome book!!! I really didn't want to like Maverick Aka Mav. But with an amazing story line Darby Briar made me fall completely in love with him. Ember is a strong woman who is a survivor. I loved her immediately for the that inner strength she found to change her life. I enjoy books with a woman who can hold her own much more then a woman who needs the man to save her. This book is hot hot hot!!!!!! Steamy sex scenes so hot that if I was reading a paperback the pages would have caught on fire. This is one of the. Set books I've listened to in a long time. It's a lengthy book, 17 hours but in a good way as I didn't want it to end and I am glad it wasn't broken in to two or three books. Honey Scarlett and Leeroy Will did an excellent job bring this book and the characters to life!! Love love loved it!!

Holy smokes, my panties are on FIRE!!!!

This is by far THE BEST audiobook I have had the pleasure to listen to!! The chemistry between Honey and Leeroy was AHHH-MAZING and off-the-walls HOT!! The emotion, the passion, the intensity of every word could be heard through their beautiful narration! I couldn't stop listening! Leeroy is PERFECTION as Maverick Gunn, his raspy voice just blew me away. Whenever he said "doll", "babe" and the drawn out "f@&&&&$$$$@" in anger or desire had me melting into a puddle every.single.time.!!!
Honey's portrayal of Ember's struggle, pain, and desire was magnificent! This audiobook gave me warm shivers and goosebumps all over!!!
In addition to their talented narration, Honey and Leeroy also stuck to their own genders throughout which was pure genius!!
I don't think my review can do this audiobook any justice!!! You HAVE to listen for yourself! Honey and Leeroy are a narration duo not to be missed!! I can't wait to hear more by them!

One of the best MC romances out there! Dark & sexy

Any additional comments?

BURNING EMBER by Darby Briar centers on the Harbingers of Chaos, an MC which easily stole the title and became my favorite MC. The story is unique and raw and I don’t think there is one member I don’t want to learn more about – but I really hope that Dozer or Edge get their story next! And I hope it’s at least as long as Mav’s book. Yes, this is a book that really deserves the term full-length novel. The audio book kept me entertained for days, I was always on the edge of my seat and I loved it.
Honey Scarlett and Leeroy Will do a fantastic job portraying respectively the female and male voices. The story flows effortlessly and seamlessly and I cannot wait to listen to more of their works.

Ember is fighting her way through life, homeless. But if she is one thing, she is a survivor. She has not lost her way; her heart is still full of love with the need not only to help herself but others as well, not without drawing the consequences from her past experiences. And Maverick certainly is everything she promised herself to avoid at all costs. He is cruel, nasty und insulting towards her, letting her feel all his bitterness and resentment – so much so, that she secretly named him Luce, because he reminds her so much of the devil himself. Without other options, all she can do is to somehow endure his crappy treatment, at least until it is safe for her to leave again.

Maverick does everything in his might to push Ember away – because with every look she reminds him more of the woman who created the spiteful and numb man he now is. But why then does she seem the only one able to make him feel again? When almost all of his brothers warm up to her positive personality, he fears that they will want to keep her around for longer – all the while barely being able to stand them touching her in any way…

Wow, Maverick is a first grade a##hole for the first part of the book. I am not sure I would have been able to see through this demeanor as early on as Ember did. Somehow, she hated him and yet saw the light in him. But through half of the book I surely swooned right along with her with everything Mav. Dark and brooding alpha men with so much to give that it makes your knees weak after you got a chance to look behind their façade are definitely my favorite type of heroes.

There’s so much to say about the plot, yet I will keep it vague at best. There is so much more going on than just Ember and Mav finding each other, the drama and angst, the suspense, the shocking moments that just kept coming… and I loved every second with the secondary characters so, so much! I cannot wait for more of this gritty and sexy series!

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Wow!

This audiobook was one of the best I've heard in a very long time. The story captures you from the first word and keeps your attention all the way through. This is a really long story, but I'm glad it took 2 days to listen to! The characters are so well written and compelling. If you liked Sons of Anarchy on TV, you will love this audiobook. Narration was excellent!
