But the story is good only when reading

I do not know where to start the story was interesting and exciting, such action took all the time

In the role of a man when it came to making Gabriel's voice it was a nightmare,
at times I didn't understand anything so strong accent was
Otherwise, I like Sean as a narrator but Gabriel's role doesn't suit him
Melissa was super I enjoyed her presentation


Thank you!

Great book, narration needs work

I love these two authors, the story was amazing. It had everything I wsnted; alpha male, strong female, sexy Mc men, closely knit extended family, a bqby, good friends, danger, drama and love. What it needed was a better director for the voice actors. I've heard both these voice actors before and they aren't bad but they needed feedback. My biggest note would be for Sean that Mexican and Cuban are not the same. Sometimes he got that and sometimes he didn't. Also for a man who grew up in the states and lived without extended family his accent would have been a bit more subtle. Not to mention its narration, and the listeners need to be able to understand which I could not sometimes. I think with a little bit more feedback this book would have been amazing. I'll probably go back and read on kindle and see if that helps.

Is it Gabriel or Gabriell???

It may be a little obvious that the narration drove me a bit insane!!! Some of the characters called the H Gabriel and some of them including the h called him Gabriell, this drove me crazy!!! Sean Crisdan was awesome as always, and the female narrator was not to bad.

Now for the story....I actually thought that it had a good premise, but it fell flat. There was not much couple interaction at first, and then they just live each other. I am going to continue on with this series as I am interested in the next 2 characters, but this one was not a winner for me.

Much better female narrator!

Great book and it helps to have some great narrators to bring it alive! These authors are now on my list for MC Audiobooks I will be on the look out for more in the future. I really like MC Club life stories and the thriller in them along with the love and compassion they show for the right women. Especially when they have these action pack parts that make your cringe.. would love to see more of that in these authors books. But I tell you what I am a fan. I can’t wait to hear the stories of Reid and Quin’s stories along with the others! I really hope to hear more of Alba’s college friends stories and Logan’s brother too! Super excited about the upcoming stories of this MC Biker Family!

Great story but narrators need work.

I liked the story very much but I agree the narration is lacking. This is a book I should have just read.

Love the series/hate the narrators

Female narrator was read her part as though it was a grocery list. I don’t mean to offend Sean Crisden but I find his narration creepy.

MC fan

The story line is good but the male person not good the voice didn’t match the character in the story and the going back and forth with the translation was not needed. Following the story his English should have been a lot better since he came as a child.

Horrible Narration

The story itself isn’t that bad but the male narrator made me cringe with his horrible fake accent. Listening to him made it hard to finish the book. I also didn’t like how some characters called him Gabriel and others Gabrielle. I guess they were trying to say his name in Spanish but because they couldn’t roll their “R” it came out sounding like the feminine form Gabrielle. It would have been better had everyone just call him Gabriel. I may continue this series because I like the other characters but Gabriel and Alba fell flat in this book.
