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.

Another great one for me

Although there were some corny moments, I still loved Bane and Crystal’s story. I literally was waiting on my next credit to listen to this one.

Lasting love over time

It was great to hear Bane’s and Crystal’s love story. The story of how love can mature with individuals as they grow. My only draw back was the narrator female voice was “scratchy”. I almost had to stop listening but the voice of Bane was so sexy — I made it through.

Brenda Jackson strikes again👍

Great book! The narration needs more diversity, male/female voices for the characters would be great!

Very Enjoyable.

Loved just about everything from this book. Was my first read from you Brenda. I definitely will be reading more. I am thoroughly now engaged with the Westmoreland Clan! The narrator for this one really bright the story to life. The story was also well written. Simply loved it!

Finally, Bane's story and revisit with all.

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

I have read most of the Westmorland books. I love the whole series. This was my second audio in the series and I did enjoy it as well.

What other book might you compare Bane to and why?

Anyone book in the series.

Which character – as performed by Sean Crisden – was your favorite?

Bane. He has been referred to so often in other books, he was really an anticipated character and story.

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

Yes.

Any additional comments?

This is a huge family of alpha males and females with strong mates necessary to have a successful relationship. Ms. Jackson is so talented to keep track of all the characters and still bring them in for a visit in the last of the Westmorland series.

Good

I loved the plot. It wasn't straight out about sex and love making. It was soul searching and caring
