Publisher's Summary

After the incident in Iraq, I found myself at the end of my rope, contemplating the taste of my 9mm. That's when he found me; they found me.

The Boneyard Brotherhood took me in, gave me purpose. My life became about my bike, my brothers, my freedom. But there was still something missing; something I needed but couldn't put my finger on.

That something came walkin' in the door of our club, wantin' to serve papers to Teddy, the man who brought me to the Brotherhood. She was meek, conservative, shy. What she didn't know was that she was also going to be mine.

Once I laid eyes on Madi, I knew I had to have her, her curves, her subdued smile, the way her face flushed when I called her sweetcheeks. But before I could make her mine, I had to convince her to look past the tough tattooed biker image she was afraid of and find the real me.

    "Sadly not for me"

    I was gifted This book via audiobook blast in exchange for an honest review...
    This was an OK listen ,narration was good but the book for me was not gritty enough bordering on sickly sweet and considering it was meant to be a mcc book it never reached the mark .
    Enough said sorry

    "MC Romance with a Difference!"

    I liked this story. I liked the simple honesty of it. I liked that for a change it was written entirely from the male protagonist's point of view. The reader has no idea with the woman is experiencing, feeling or thinking. I enjoyed Gideon Welles gravelly voice that brought Sid to life. He managed Maddi's softer tones as well. I liked that the usual pursuits associated with Motorcycle Clubs are included though the Boneyard Brotherhood's approach to drugs, etc is from a different angle giving the members a gruff exterior and a more sensitive inside. I like how Amber Burns kept it real with the genuine physical and emotional effects of PTSD. And I especially liked how this is a story about making the right choices and finding that right person to make all of it worth the effort, through the good, bad and ugly. It does feel a little slow at times but i think Maddi and Sid's story fits their personalities.

    This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

    "Awesome MC romance"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the characters!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I honestly can't pin it down to just one moment, Sid and Madi's relationship is pretty moving throughout the book, and the book as a whole is very moving.


    Any additional comments?

    A sweeter MC romance than most, mainly focusing on the relationship between Sid and Madi and less on MC activities. Sid is a sweetheart of a biker. The narrator was awesome as well. I loved this book! I received a free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    "Not your typical MC book"
    Would you try another book from Amber Burns and/or Gideon Welles?

    I would try another Amber Burns books however it wouldn't be a motorcycle club book of hers as there just wasn't enough action in this book for me. I like MC books and this one just wasn't action filled enough for me to keep me interested. It was to "light/fluffy" for me. It was a cute romance but not MC for my taste. I would be willing to give her another chance in another topic as I think she would do romance well somewhere else just not MC.


    If you’ve listened to books by Amber Burns before, how does this one compare?

    This was my first story by Amber Burns and I enjoyed it even with the topic not being MC.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes, the narration matched the pace of the story. This wasn't an action packed MC story and the narration matched that. This was my first listen by this narrator and while he wasn't my favorite narrator I don't have any major complaints either. I don't think I would actively seek him out as he didn't make me want to dig in and listen either and not put down the book. He was good but I didn't feel drawn into the story like he was the character like other narrators do. He was a good fit for a MC narrator though, his voice is gruff and fit that part.

    "Not your typical MC Romance"

    Not your typical MC romance, this book is a pleasant surprise. Amber Burns has a way of integrating a not so ordinary romance with the hurdles a veteran has to live with when hurt in combat. Sid returns from an IED explosion several years before and has adapted to civilian life with his disabilities. He meets Maddie, and he knows right away, he is "going to put a ring on it!". I love it when there is love at first sight. Sid is a complex character, with his rough, soldier exterior, it's thought that he will be a tough man to get to know. His vulnerable side is evident and endearing, Maddie cannot help but fall for him. He is honest and forthcoming with his feelings. Maddie is a little harder to get to know, though as she warms up to Sid, her wildcat side comes out.

    The twist and turns this book takes keeps the book interesting as well as romantic. There is trouble inside the MC Club and circumstances wreak havoc with Sid and Maddie. I love how Amber Burns is able to tie all these threads together and give the story real depth.

    Gideon Welles is the narrator for this book. His raspy, baritone voice is perfect for Sid. He also has a good range of characters both male and female with discernible characteristics for each. He is fast becoming an autobuy narrator for me!

    Any additional comments?

    3.5 stars! OVERHAUL was not your typical MC story-no club business, no club floozies or attending church. And I have to admit, I was kinda disappointed as I thought that that was what this story would be about. Having said that though, this story had much more depth in that it explored the post war life of an injured ex-soldier and his daily battle of living with his injury. I felt that the author did an outstanding job of showing his struggle to get thru each day, battling his pain, and the MC was more a place for ex-servicemen to belong rather than it being an actual MC. I enjoyed the romance between Sid and Madi tho felt that the whole Insta-love a bit unbelievable. I also felt that the second half where Sid is trying to prove his innocence was a little drawn out, and deviated from the romance. <br/><br/>This was my first audio narrated by Gideon Welles, and it certainly won't be my last!! Mr. Welles is exceptional in emoting the characters especially Sid's inner dialogue. Not only could I hear but I could FEEL all of Sid's emotions, pain and struggles. Truly talented!!!<br/><br/>I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator or publisher.

    "Worth the Ride"

    Sid had been drowning his pain with alcohol ever since he returned from Iraq, injured from a vehicle explosion and with terrible nerve pain. Sitting in a bar one night, Sid began contemplating suicide. That's when he met Teddy, another vet who understood just what he was going through. Teddy took Sid on a ride and introduced him to his motorcycle club. The club was just what Sid needed, and he found his place in it fixing up the members' bikes.

    Four years later, shy sweet Madi showed up to serve Teddy, hiding her curves under ill fitting clothes and her face behind glasses. Sid was immediately attracted to her and tried everything he could think of to get her to go out with him. When she finally agreed, they moved to boyfriend and girlfriend on their first date. But when Sid needed Madi most, she pulled away, and he had to find a way to get her back.

    This was my first motorcycle club romance (I didn't even know that was a thing!) and I loved it. Character driven stories are my favorite, and Sid was well worth the ride. He was such a perfect mix of toughness and vulnerability. The entire story was told from his point of view, and I didn't spend a boring moment in his head. He had gone through such a tough time after his injury in Iraq, but he didn't dwell on what ifs or feel sorry for himself after the initial chapter. He found something that made him happy and he went for it. This book really cast a light on the hardships our veterans face, injured or not, and it was refreshing to read a book that didn't gloss over these details.

    Madi was a more passive presence. Sid seemed to get what he needed from her, not because of anything she brought to their relationship, but because of what he took from her. It might have been anyone that filled that need. By the end she was beginning to be more assertive, and with Sid by her side she might grow into a stronger woman. This was a steamy read, a standalone book with no cliffhanger.

    Gideon Welles as the narrator was excellent, his voice seemed to match my image of Sid perfectly. He spoke with a deep gravelly growl that was incredibly pleasant. He lightened his tone for Madi's speaking voice and each character was recognizable. Overall it was a great job. I was provided a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review. I'd definitely listen to another book by both the author and narrator.

    "TENDER STORY, NOT BAD-ASS AND GRITTY"
    Any additional comments?

    I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.<br/><br/>Well thought out story line about Sid, a wounded war veteran who suffers from non-stop pain, and Madison, a blushing girl with little experience and a lot of trust issues. One misunderstanding with the law causes enough doubt in Madie's mind for her to walk away leaving Sid alone and forced to face his own insecurities and what it is he really wants.<br/><br/>Gideon Welles has a great gravely voice. I've heard him before and liked him. <br/><br/>Two Thumbs Up!<br/>

    "A sweeter softer kind of biker"

    3.5 stars
    This is the second book from this series that I have listened to and I enjoyed it just as much as the first book I listened to. Even though this is part of a series each book can be listened to as a standalone. I listened to them out of order and it didn't have any effect on my enjoyment of either book.

    It's a very entertaining and enjoyable sweeter MC story that is different from most of the MC books I have read before. It's an MC light story.

    It focuses more on the relationship between Sid and Madi instead of the MC. Even though it's not full of constant drama and angst the story has a few little twists that keep it interesting. While I love my bad boy bikers it's nice to have a story that isn't full of constant drama, violence and heartache every once in a while. It was a nice change of pace. It was also nice to have a biker that wasn't a jerk and treated his girl like gold from the start.

    Sid and Madi were both great characters. Sid was likable and easy to relate to from the start.

    Gideon Welles did a really good job with the narration. He was the perfect narrator for this book. Nice voice, rough, gravelly and sexy around the edges just how you want your bad boy biker to sound. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. He has some really good character voices. Of coarse the male voices are fantastic. With a voice so deep, occasionally I had a hard time distinguishing the male and female characters. I am glad though that he didn't attempt to do a high pitched female voice, that would have ruined the story. He was able to bring the characters, their emotions and story to life through his narration. Very enjoyable

    Story
    "Glad I Took The Chance"
    Would you listen to Overhaul again? Why?

    If I was in the mood and needed some MC romance than yes I would listen to it again. It was a welcomed surprise. But know that this is more about Sid and Madison than about the club. The club is more of an extension of Sid and not the main focus.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that we have a main character that was in the service. Also liked that the author was willing to make him a wounded vet. She was also willing to tackle the fact about the tough time our wounded vets have once they come home.


    Which character – as performed by Gideon Welles – was your favorite?

    I may surprise some but Sidney Redding was my favorite. He surprises you at every turn. Not just the fact that he's a wounded warrior. He doesn't let that define who he is and he's not willing to compromise his integrity for something he doesn't believe in. There is another book in my library that was narrated by Mr. Welles and I didn't like him as much as I do in this one. I felt his voice was perfect for Sid. And I would be willing to check out more of his work.


    Any additional comments?

    One good thing about listening to a book as opposed to reading it is that you don't watch a clock. The reason I mention this is because there came a point in the story where I thought it was almost over and then the author, and the narrator, surprised me by showing that it wasn't - far from it. And I was glad to have that surprise because I wasn't ready for the ride to be over. A couple of things came out of this besides my listening pleasure was that I have a new author to watch out for and hopefully her book two will be coming out in audio form.

    I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Audio Copy of this book.

    If you could sum up Overhaul in three words, what would they be?

    entertaining, enlightening, enjoyable


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Overhaul?

    There were so many. The whole story but I guess the one when they got back together.


    What about Gideon Welles’s performance did you like?

    He is going to be one of my go to narrators.He is up there with Phil Gigante and Dc Cole. He made the story so believable. Loved his laid back style.


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

    Yes, and did


    Any additional comments?

    I got this ARC via audiobook boom. I have listened to many MC stories before this one but this is one that really made me think and the narrator made the story so believable.

    "A New Twist on MC Romances (for me at least)"

    &quot;I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.&quot;

    Not only was the story good, Gideon Welles deep, graveling voice was icing on the cake. I found that for pacing I preferred to listen at 1.25x speed. I think I particularly enjoyed Sid and Madi's story because it was told entirely from his POV. And while there were some typical themes and archetypes (the MC club he was part of was full of vets, he was a mechanic struggling with PTSD and depression, there were some illegal activities afoot), they were handled in a very refreshing way (Sid deals with the aftermath of war in a very real and painful way). Even the relationship between Sid and Madi was unique, it was sort of insta-love but with more depth and emotion. I just really enjoyed listening to the book from beginning to end. I give it 3.75 out of five wine glasses and hope to continue on with the series.
