Summary

She's Shattered...

Ashton Granger is a perfect wife to her husband. She has to be, if she's not, he will find a way to correct any perceived imperfections. Such is life, and so it has been for a very long time, eroding Ashton's sense of self, cracking her sense of worth until she lies in a million pieces on the side of a stretch of lonely highway.

He's Scarred...

Ethan "Trigger man" Howard is the Sergeant of Arms for The Sacred Hearts Motorcycle club. After several tours as a Marine Corps sniper overseas, he's seen and done enough damage for a man three times his age. He's out. Done. So over it, and home to nurse his wounds, physical, emotional and psychological with the help of his MC brothers. Now he simply deals with the scars that life handed him. Was it more than just luck that he was the only other soul traveling that isolated stretch of highway that night?

Mature audiences only (18+)

Language, violence, and sexual content including one very hot MFM threesome!

Not the narrators fault...

Both narrators for this book were very good at what they do and would get five stars from me for talent alone. However, I struggled a little with the idea of the voice of Jackson Hunter belonging to the 36 year old character. As I say this isn't a dig at the narration, more a case of miscasting? Annabelle Warrens male voice was actually more believable... This may have been a better solo read for her?

That being said, I enjoyed the story. All characters were built and described beautifully. Fully pulling me into their world and the community they were part of. I would happily listen to more in this series even with the little vocal niggle.

Easy, fun, enjoyable 😉

Really enjoyed this, only real issue I had was the massive overuse of the word 'said' but still found it easy to get lost in!!

Trigger & Sunshine will always be my favorite

What did you love best about Shattered & Scarred?

Trigger and Sunshine are my favorite couple of the Sacred Hearts MC series. Annabelle did a great job bringing Sunshine to life. She captured both her timid side and her strength. Trigger came across as a slight southern boy who smoked too many cigarettes in his life. I am looking forward to hearing the other books in the series.

Worst male narration

The female narrator was wonderful but the male was horrible. I couldn't get past the first chapter.

HORRIBLE NARRATORS!!!

I couldn't get past the first 20 minutes. I listen to Audiobooks ALL the time and LOVE MC BOOKS. This reading was horrible. Female too demonstrative and breathy and the male made me feel as though the character was 65 yrs old. ICK! I might need to ebook this one...sorry to say.

Excellent

This is a new author for me and I absolutely love the writing. I hate to dis the male narrator as he is very talented it’s just every time it switched back to him speaking I was startled into wondering when I had started listening to a western

scruffy old man

The story wasn't too bad a little too stereotypical for my taste. But the narration was horrible! The first thing that you hear is this terrible music and a hollow voice saying what chapter you are on it is distracting and harsh on your ears. Annabelle Warren was very monotonous through out the book. There was no feeling in any of her dialog but she did a good male voice. Jackson Hunter was the wrong man for this book. When I hear his voice I think of a barrel chested gruff older man with a pot belly, not a blue eyed blonde haired 36 year old with rippling muscles. It was so distracting that I couldn't concentrate on the book because I was laughing at the dialog. The dialog sounded really forced and he cant even come close to a female tone. His chapters were so confusing because his voice didn't fluctuate for the female parts at all so I had no clue who was saying what. I couldn't finish the book and was disappointed.

Who picked this male narrator?

I tried to enjoy this book. I love MC books with romance. But the male narrator in this book sounds like an 80-year-old grandpa. It wrecked the whole book for me. Be cautious. if you can get by his voice you might enjoy the book.

Perfect!

First, I love this book so much I have read the book 3 times, so when I found out it was going to be an audible book I was super excited! It took me 3 days to listen to it! I love it! The author picked the perfect narrators for this book. Trigger being 36 years old, an ex smoker, ecigarette user and bad ass biker the gruff sexy voice of the male narrator that she chose was perfect. His voice matched the description of Trigger from the book. Ashton's vioce also matched the 30year old petite women perfectly! I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audible book. I totally plan on listening to it again. And I can't wait for more of this series to be made into audible books!!

epic ride of redemption

a motorcycle, a tattoo, an a**hole( or 2) and some broken people come together to pick up these pieces of their lives. I loved the honesty of the adventure. sometimes brokenness turns into the perfect beauty.
I am looking forward to hear the other mc members journey.
