Summary

It's time to travel with James and Malcolm through their 20-year history as they battle each other and struggle to hold on to a lifetime of secrets.
James
Never good enough.
Not the real son.
I will prove him wrong - prove everyone wrong.
I am someone.
I will succeed.
I don’t need my brother to help me.
I don't need anyone.
My enemy holds my secret.
He teases me.
Taunts me.
Follows me with his eyes.
Our hot, angry kisses keep me up at night.
I don’t want him.
I hate him.
But I can’t stop thinking about him.
That there's more to him
I want to discover him.
The truth is unexpected.
My enemy might not only be my friend but the love I never thought to have.

Malcolm
Live, love, laugh.
Life is too short to worry when you don’t know how long you’ve got.
I want every day to be my best.
Like it’s my last.
My friends see what I let them.
Not the real me.
Only one man has ever crawled beneath my skin.
He drives me crazy.
Makes me wild.
Makes me care.
A night of bad decisions changes the course of my life.
Everything I've known no longer makes sense.
My enemy now stands by my side.
I’m no longer running.
I want to stay.
I want a future.
Hate has changed to something new and wonderful.
Something terrifying.
Uncontrollable.
Love.

Emotional spider web

Story: Felice Stevens strikes again! The complicated, raw and difficult emotions are almost a trademark and they are in this story in spades! We get plenty of angst, complex emotional webs that the characters have to untangle. I loved how the story was developed, with a time span of decades and brilliant presentation thst made me want more at every step! Suffice it to say I finished listening at 2.30 am and no regrets! Narration: Great job! All the voices fit the characters brilliantly and the story was very easy to follow!

as good as the ebook

The story is always 4-5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me. The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, I’m over the half, but I listen enough to give a review. PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!! To my ratings: 5* - very very good it's like an A+ 4* - very good and will be often re-listening it's like an A 3* - it's more then a one-time-listening. it's like a B

Perfection

I have been in love with this series since we met Austin. From the start, this series has grabbed me and no one more so than James. Throughout we got glimpses about who James was and who he may be. There was always a mysteriousness surrounding James that always stuck with me. We didn’t know much about Mal, other than James despised him and Mal antagonized James at every opportunity. We certainly didn’t know Mal is carrying his own secret that no one knows, not even Rhoades. The push and pull of James and Mal finding each other was so captivating. James’ secrets and resentments kept him so closed off from the only family he had. Mal kept pushing James to let go of his past and live for the now and leave old resentments and hurts behind. This enemies to lovers and slow burn was just perfect for these two. I couldn’t have loved James and Mal's story more. Amazing series, fantastic characters and their story was just perfection. I first read this series, and I loved it so much I am circling back to listen to them in audio. The narration of these characters has been fantastic! Kale Williams has done an amazing job bringing Felice's wonderful words to life.

Emotionally Engaging

This book takes you on a rollercoaster ride. It was heartbreaking and beautiful. I love a good enemies to lovers story. This book was well written and the characters were dynamic and well developed. It’s easy to get lost in this story. Kale Williams did a fantastic job of bringing this story to life.

Heart breaking

This was so heart breaking at times, the emotions just rolled thru me!! James had never known love! When his mother dies, he is sent to live with his wealthy and horrible father and brother. He had hoped that his brother and he could be friends but he over heard him talking to his best friend, Mal. Mal secretly obsesses over James. As time goes on, the two of them are at each others throats. One day things escalate and they get together. This was fantastic!! Listened to it in one setting, could not stop!! Kale Williams did a fantastic job with the narration!!

A Love Worth Waiting For

James Uncontrollable by Felice Stevens Story 5 Stars☆☆☆☆☆ Audio 5 Stars ☆☆☆☆☆ Story line Author: Ms. Felice Stevens The book has a very dark edge to it but if you continue you will start to see lightness emerging. Spanning over 20 years we see the at times volatile relationship between James and Malcolm. Mal is best friends with Rhoades, James older half brother. James and Mal have serious issues to contend with. In the previous books you see there is strong resentment between the two. Sometimes hate and love can be very close and difficult to differentiate between. James had a very poor view of himself and acted out quite recklessly as a young man. Mal is aware of James past mistakes and this has caused an even greater divide on how they treat each other. Time doesn't necessarily heal all wounds as the men continued to bait and snark at each other over all these years. But as I stated earlier emotions as complicated as hate can change and I was completely absorbed at their transformation. I don't want to give away any spoilers so you will have to pick up the book to understand what caused this great discord between these compelling men and see if they can heal past wounds. An amazing story chocked full of realistic angst that I highly recommend. Audio Narrator: Mr. Kale Williams Kale is one of my favorite narrators. His voice is quite distinctive and I love his interpretation of all the various characters. His tone is always soothing and as usual you always know who is speaking as each person is developed and distinct. Kale nailed the voice of young James and you could feel his intense anxiety when he is shipped to live with his cold and uncaring father. All in all this presentation is a wonderful audio that lives up to its expectations. I highly recommend this wonderful listening experience and hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

LOVE, HATE OVERKILL!!!!

I think for this book to work both Malcom and James have to be a little crazy. throughout the book you have one saying no and the other forcing them(even though the other wants it) it gets you going in the beginning cause you're like "hey why are you fighting, you know you want this) and they do, however I think the author did overkill on the "I love to hate you" theme cause by the time they got together twice I figured ok NOW James can put his guard down and just admit it.....Nope.....Nope! this dude still fighting his feelings. and then that's when this book got annoying 😡 The narrator was fantastic I love this guy, but I think they need to give him better books with less infuriating characters.

HOT CHEMISTRY!!

The chemistry between James and Malcolm was sizzling hot!! 🔥 I’m glad James learned Mal wasn’t just the playboy he made himself out to be but someone invested in kids getting the care they needed for medical problems. With James saving all the young men from a life of selling themselves both he and Malcolm made a wonderful couple. I’ve read through this series waiting to get to this book and I wasn’t disappointed although I would have loved if it had been longer. 😉 I was thrilled with the audio version because the narrator did an excellent job! There was a scene where four couples were together and the narrator Kale William did such a great job because I could distinguish each and every individual character 🤗 and his British accent was swoon worthy 😍 FANTASIC book all around!!

Thoroughly breathtaking

There are no words which can adequately express how much this story will touch you. James is so full of hope and bravery and to witness the life changing moments from his point of view is devastating. Kale Williams’ narration Is inspired. His facility with accents is impressive and key to this book. I was gutted, absolutely gutted and shed tears. This book is one of my all time favorites and on my re-read list. Such a wonderful accomplishment for both Felice Stevens and Kale Williams.

Angst too long

This book is full of angst. The first 5 hrs it was understandable. After that, I just wanted James to piss or get off the pot. Folk who are so hurt and messed up that they require the interested party to constantly, continuously, without ceasing chase them and take more than they give are, generally, unlikable. As the saying goes, "Hurt people, hurt people." And I tired of James bringing that to life with folk who cared about him and doing so way past the expiration date. The eventual hot sex and understanding the source of James' pain didn't help me enough to make up for the unceasing angst, the push and pull going on too long (20+ yrs). In the end, James' entrenched pain made the joy at the end sweeter, but it took too long to get there.
