Summary

Will the president of 1%'er club Lucifer's Lair MC get tamed, or will he still be wild? Does the president of Lucifer's Lair claim his first lady, or does he let what happened in the past define him?

Joe: I only hired Chantal to get to the bottom of who is trying to kill me inside of my club. That was it. All she was supposed to do was hack into the computers and find a connection and see who has been reading my emails and leaking information about drops. Having this pink-haired pixie in my club and my bed pretending to be my ol' lady is definitely blurring some lines. Sleeping with her wasn't part of the plan, and neither was having to save her from a rival gang. Chantal ended up saving me in more ways than one. Can I do the same for her, or will I just wreck another life?

Chantal: As a private investigator, I thought I had seen it all and heard it all. Boy, was I wrong! When Joe "The Bear" Montague showed up at my office to hire me to hack into his club's computers, I knew I was getting myself into more than I could handle. With the promise of being paid enough money to pay off my debt to Big Sir, I took the job that Joe was offering. Being a fake ol' lady couldn't be that hard, could it? Little did I realize that over time, he would begin to mean more to me than just a boss and my savior from Big Sir. When we touch, it's like fireworks are being lit up inside of me. He's so hot and powerful that I cling to him in so many ways. I thought maybe we could make it out of the "fake ol' lady" title to me being a real one.

After I cracked the job and found out that one of his own is trying to take him down, I began to fear that he would be done with me. I've opened so much of myself to him. I gave him my body and heart and I hope he doesn't ruin them while he fights to keep his club together and the police out of his business. When everything is said and done, am I going to be more to him than just a bed warmer?

Great Narration

Taming the Bear, the first book in the Lucifer's Lair's series is an entertaining MC bad boy romance. For the MC romance, the storyline and the characters are superb. The story is steamy with unexpected twists, turns, and suspense. However, there were a couple of inconsistencies in the characters' descriptions, and the ending felt a bit rushed. Overall, the book was delightful, if you're an MC fan, chances are you'll enjoy this one. Rodney Falcon's performance is splendid; he really portrays the individual aspects of the characters' qualities, bringing them to life.

up until the prolog I Really liked this book. I love a good mc romance like the next girl. And I dont want all the men in the World to be good men to the World. just to the girl. But damn. dont make a gang of bikers that live from selling drugs through a cherity party for a rehab center. that just ruins it fir me. And it really is a shame. Because this was a damn good book and a damn good performance from Rodney. But shit it was a bad ending

Hot and Suspenseful MC Romance

What an interesting romantic pairing, a hacker and a MC President. Very suspenseful with super hot well written steamy scenes. Chemistry between Bear (Joe) and Chantal is magnetic. Well written suspense and great strong characters. New to the author, but I look forward to more in this rough MC romance series.

Rodney Falcon has become one of my favorite narrators. I've listened to quite a few of his performances. Love that his female character voice is getting better and more defined and I love how his voice makes these tough alpha men seem so much more swoonworthy and attractive.

I received a review copy at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

The Bear

This was another great MC book read by Rodney Falcon. Bear is trying to find the traitor in the club, so he hires Chantal. Chantal is a profession hacker that is to act like Bear's old lady to get the information he needs to fine the traitor. Neither one of them had planed for feeling ans sex to get involved, but love got a hold of them. This was a great story and in worth the listen.

Great start to new series

Taming the Bear is the first book in The Lucifer’s Lair MC series, and is the first book I have listened to by this author, but not the first by narrator Rodney Falcon who brought these characters to life. This story has strong complex characters, unexpected twists in the plot and suspense in the story line. Looking forward to the next release in the series.

Biker problems....but full of potential

Full disclosure, first time with narrator and this author. Story line has potential but is a bit cliche in language choice and story. I enjoyed it but was also very aware that it could be even better. Narration was good, need some attention to doing the female voice but I did enjoy the style and cadence and will listen to this narrator again!

A great MC

Joe "The Bear" Montague, president of the Lucifer's Lair MC, knows he has a traitor in his club. Someone is out to kill him and this time they come very close. So he hires 22 year old hacker and private investigator Chantal Phillips to help him find the rat. Moving Chantal into the clubhouse as his girlfriend seems like the best way to get her close to the club members and spy on them. What he isn't prepared for is the way she fits effortless into his life.
But Chantal comes with some dark secrets of her own. And while she tries to keep her problems from Joe, things quickly escalate out of control.

This book is very fast paced and fun to listen to, Rodney Falcon does a great job playing the parts. I look forward to more books in the Lucifer's Lair MC series.

more than meets the eye

A job turns into so much more! Danger, secrets, and betrayals brings them together and serms to seal their fates. Bear was so protective and had a soft heart when it counted. Loved it. Looking forward to Slice's story. The narrator was super secy and truly added to my enjoyment of this story.

This is a 1% MC story! I loved it and the characters were great!

I loved this! It does seem kinda slow in the beginning but as the story moves forward it really picks up! Chantal was a great lead. She is strong and has her own business. Her only prob is trying not to fall for the biker and the money she owes Big Sir. She has a great friend in Jen! I love their time together. She is so outrages! When Bear and a couple boys meet up with them for dinner. It becomes amazing! Slice is very similar to Jen. They do this one-up against each other. It was “one-liners” for hooking up. So so funny! There are serious times as well. This is full of guns, redemption, possessive reactions, MC business and some sexy times.
This is my first book by this author. She did a good job weaving the story with a lot of characters. This is the first in the series so I can see some of these guys getting their own stories. I feel a good job was done on the club “life”. I listened to this on audio and Rodney Falcon did a wonderful job.

Whom can you trust?

I received this Audible book and voluntarily wrote an honest review. The author and narrator have combined to create and portray a story full of angst, mystery, betrayal, loyalty, anxiety, passionate love, and protecting a loved one. Chantal is a strong and intelligent woman that finds herself in a totally new environment with new challenges. She finds herself falling for a man that is so different from other men she has known. Joe aka Bear is trying discover who is trying to kill him. Chantal may be the woman that can renew his sexual passion that has been hidden after a previous betrayal of love. But Chantal has a secret that will put all of them in danger. If you like MC books, this is the book to read.

Great Story & Listen🎧 4.5 Smoking Hot🔥Stars🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This is my first book written by Eden Rose and it will not be my last. She created an interesting storylines and characters that are complex and well developed. I liked the two lead characters, Joe “The Bear” Montague and Chantal Phillips and the chemistry between them. Joe is the President of Lucifer’s Lair MC, he has suspicions that one of the members is betraying him and the club. Not knowing who to trust he brings in an outsider, Chantal, to help him investigate. In order to get her in the club she needs pretend to be his woman. There is some great plotting here, I really enjoyed how it all played out, the dynamics of the club, the drama, the twists and the suspense of wondering what was really going on. And the romance is smoking hot. Thank you Eden Rose for this great story. I hope to see more of your work on Audible soon.

I listened to the Audible edition, narrated but the talented Rodney Falcon. He put a lot of heart in his performance, he brings the story and the characters to life, gives them their voices, personality and attitude. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧
