Summary

A rebel artist, a tech genius, and three former Marines.

Multiple companies are vying for my new security software, but when the men of Pentabyte turn their attention on me, it seems they want more than just my code. They're at the top of their game - intelligent, driven, wealthy - and they have me thinking maybe I want more, too. But everything I've worked for is on the line. Do I dare to mix business with pleasure when the stakes are this high?

Vested Interest is audiobook one of the Code, a reverse harem continuation series of five full-length novels with heart, humor, heat, and an action suspense story line that gathers in intensity with each audiobook. You'll find a strong woman and five intriguing men, each with his own quirks, wounds, and desires - but their focus is all on her.

There's Jude, the quintessential alpha, always calmly in control. His twin brother, Jax, the mysterious one with a hungry gleam in his eyes. Trigg, the athlete and sweetheart who carries his battle scars quietly. The dashing gentleman, Daniel, with a brilliant mind and refined charm. And Gunner, the youngest of the group and the life of the party.

Audiobook one is a deliciously slow-burning novel full of tension and chemistry that will tease, tempt, and probably torment you, but buckle up, because things are about to get sizzling hot - and dangerous....

The Code series:

  1. Vested Interest
  2. Hidden Agenda
  3. Broken Process
  4. Risky Business
  5. Perfect Design

Each audiobook in the series picks up where the previous one left off, and they must be listened to in order for the story to make sense. There are a few cliff-hangers from story to story, but by the end of the series, everything comes to a very satisfying conclusion. 

Love without limits. #whychoose

Gimme more!

I absolutely loved getting to know the five guys. Each are so wonderful no wonder why you would never want to choose! Unfortunately, there were not sexy times in this first book but I loved the build up and seeing them establish themselves in her life. I was fascinated from the very beginning which just made the book fly by. I fell in love with all the characters including the BFF. This seems more like a natural reverse harem, loving the slow burn which is unusual for me. It was also really helpful to have the duel narrations by Lisa and Kale. They help bring the entire story to life before me. Can't get enough!

Excellent start

Great way to start this series, the chemistry between the characters is great. I love how the men are all Alpha’s but not too dominant in the day to day life. I really can’t wait for book 2! Great performance from both Lisa and Kale. Well written by Bethany.

Fabulous story, excellent narrators

I really loved listening to this book. I have read it before but listening to it just added extra dimensions I didn't realise I needed. Daniel's southern accent is one of them! The narrators are excellent and I felt myself sink in to listen as soon as they started. I have to hold my hands up and admit I melted every time the male narrator went down into his lower range. As for the story I love it! The characters are brilliant and it's great to have a story set in the tech world. It's not overwhelmingly techy either. I'm just sorry that it ended.

Great Story & Audible Listen🎧4.5 Wonderful🌟Stars!🌟

I loved this book! The fascinating story is original and well written and immediately grabs your attention and holds to the very end! The storylines and characters are interesting and likable. The characters are complex are nicely developed, I am looking forward to learn more about each as the series continues. I love the camaraderie amongst the five men. They have a tough road ahead gaining the trust of the female lead, Emma. This is the 1st book, the author is paving the way for a RH Romance, other than a dream sequence there was no RH action in this book. This a slow burn and I looking forward to see their relationships grow. Also curious to see where some of the other storylines go, would love to see some redemption on the Jeremy front. Bethany Jadin, thank you for this awesome story!

I listened to the Audible edition, the narrators, Lisa Zimmerman and Kale Williams, are awesome storyteller and voice performers . They bring the characters to life from the pages to your ears. Thank you for the great listen!

Thank you 🎧AudiobookObsession

I loved it!

When five hot guys approach computer whiz Emma at a tech industry gala with an offer for the security software she's working on, she doesn't think for one moment she'd find herself attracted to ALL of them. But that's what happens in this exciting reverse harem story.
Vested Interest: The Code, Book 1 has great characters, and the delicious slow burn of the storyline as Emma gets to know the sexy owners of the tech giant Pentabyte makes it a joy to read. It's a great first book by the duo that is Bethany Jadin. I loved it and can't wait to find out what happens next. If you like RH reads then you won't want to miss it!

Vested Interest

I have read these books when they were first released on Amazon and I have been waiting for them to become Audible books. These are awesome storylines and Bethany Jadin makes her characters come alive. Now I can't wait till the rest are released.

Wish I could give this book more than 5 stars

This is the first book I have listened by Bethany Jadin. I am impressed. The characters are so well developed and they had me laughing out loud so many times that I actually had to wipe away tears. I think many women can relate to Emma's dreams and daydreams of these sexy five men. These men are devoted to each other and their friends. They tease Emma but do not force her. Of course she also teases them. There are also serious issues that have been faced as well as new ones that will have to be resolved.

This was also the first time I have listened to the two narrators. They did an excellent job of bringing these characters to life and played a big role in making their antic so comical. Nothing like being in a new apartment with a high end oven and setting it for twenty hours instead of minutes to bring five men rushing in to save the day.

I asked to review for this book for #audiobookobsession. What I have written is an honest review.

I highly recommend this Audible book and plan on rereading it whenever I need to laugh.

Reverse harem

This was a new author for me. I did enjoy the story line and getting to know all the characters. The day dreaming fantasies were so hot. Look forward to the next book.

Interesting listen

This story was great! The plot and characters were very interesting. My only complaint is that it is being considered a reverse harem but there is nothing sexual in this book except for tension. I will definitely continue the series because the story is great, I just hope things will heat up in the next book.

The narration was good. I wish there was a little more distinction between the voices for the male characters but that would be hard with there being so many.

Not your typical RH

Wow - I have not been a huge fan of RH stories, but this is not your typical RH. Instead of the highly erotic sex based love stories, this one actually has a plot and characters that you want to know more about. Bethany is fighting her way in the male dominant world of computer programming. Pentabyte is a company who wants to buy her work. But it is not until she gets closer with all five men does the romance start to smolder. This is a slow burn that has a great story with perfect narrators. I look forward to more in the series.

Time fly when listening

This was a very enjoyable listen partly because the story intrigued me and the narrators was excellent.
However, I didn’t like that it’s a cliffhanger. I need the next one now!!!!!!!

Great storyline, well described characters and the chemistry between them is superb.
No unnecessary descriptions of surroundings!
This is some of the best suspense......

Narrators reads with passion and clear pronunciation, can’t ask for more.

I’m a happy listener and recommend this one to anyone who likes romance.

Amazing!!

This was my first Bethany Jadin's book, and won't be the last. This is the first book in The Code Series. Wow! I love this Reverse Harem Romance/Romantic Suspense! All the characters are great! Emma, Jude, Jax, Trigg, Daniel, and Gunner share an instant and undeniable hot chemistry. I can't tell which man I like more, but #whychoose? ;-) The storyline is well written, intriguing, funny, captivating, fast-paced, and hot! Now I can't wait for the next book in the Series! I want it now! Lisa Zimmerman and Kale Williams are both great narrators. The narration is amazing! I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily written this review.

I can’t wait for book2!

I absolutely love this series. And when I found out it was on audio I had to get it!! Both narrators are fantastic. They did a great job! The blurb above is great so I’m not going to redo it in my review. But if you like Reverse Harem with some mystery mixed into humor. So great!!

Captured the story perfectly

Emma's intelligence & insecurities, Gunner's exuberance, Daniel's elegance. Audiobook captured everything that made this book special.
