Determined to remove herself from the rules and regulations of her overbearing religious parents, Avery escapes to college and is determined to make it on her own. Working as a bartender, and mere weeks before her college graduation, she finds herself face-to-face with 30 members of an outlaw motorcycle club.
She had no idea when the president of the club walked in she'd go weak in the knees for the gorgeous tattooed biker.
Axton (aka Slice) is the president of the Selected Sinners MC. At the onset of a huge gun deal with a notorious prison gang, he has no time or desire to have a woman in his life. Abused by his Hells Angel father as a child, and wronged by every woman in his past, Axton has one devotion - the MC.
After finding out he needs Avery's criminal justice education and her linguistic skills to assist in making the gun deal a success, Axton reluctantly approaches her to act as his interpreter.
Hoping to win Axton over, Avery attempts to turn off her smart mouth, turn on her charm, and become his woman of interest, even if it means sacrificing a level of independence she's grown accustomed to.
But when the gun deal goes to hell in a handbasket, both Avery and Axton are left wondering what their next move may be.

For an audiobook to do justice to one of my favourite MC novels is a huge ask - and I've got to say this was a terrific surprise! Scott Hildreth is a master, Axton/Slice one of my fave MC characters of all time, so I'd have been devastated if the narration was anything less than perfect. But Biff Summers and Bunny Warren have just been added to my Top 10 Narrators list, and I'm eagerly adding audio to the rest of the Selected Sinners series!
"He Made Progress and She Made The Cut!"
I've listened to well over 600 audiobooks and love ALL types of romances from sweet and loving to dark, raw and gritty. Admittedly, I've only listened to handful of male romance authors but I have to say Scott Hildreth is my favorite male author so far. He really delivered a dark unapologetic, gritty, MC story, and did a great job building up the relationship between the H/h. I will definitely be continuing the series; however, I do have a few comments about what I like and disliked.
First, I loved, LOVED Biff's performance and thought he did an awesome job portraying Axton. I loved how he delivered all Axton's sarcastic, gritty dialogue. I've listened to both Biff Summers and Bunny Warren in the past, they make a great team and made this an enjoyable audio experience.
The MC world building was excellent! This isn't no do-gooder MC gang. Yeah, they will kill for the right reasons, but don't have any issues taking out those who cross them.
The main characters as well as the secondary characters were intriguing. I liked they all had their own personalities, and quirks. Some of my favorites were Axton aka Slice, Otis, and Toad. Even though Avery was Axton's love interest, I didn't think she was playing with a full deck. Which brings me to what I liked least, Avery's obsession and jealously over her best friend Sloan's body, especially her tits and Avery's lack of them. It would have been ok for her to think about it some, but my gosh, she thought about it some much she really came across as someone with a low self esteem but she was suppose to me this tough firecracker. Even with her obsession with her body, at least being with Axton finally gave her the self confidence to like her own body.
The only other issue I had with the story was Axton's plan to set up Sloan at the Barbeque. This wasn't cool, and even worse Avery was ok with the plan even though she was suppose to be her best friends.
Compared to other erotic stories, the chemistry and steam factor is on the lower side. The H/h don't have sex until over halfway through the story, instead the story builds their relationship up. Now, the cop car was a first.
Overall this was a very entertaining story full of action, humor, interesting characters and a unique H/h. A few unanswered questions, but the positives definitely outweigh the negatives, and I look forward to listening to the rest of the series. However, this is one of those MC stories where some listeners will love it while others won't.
Steady plot. Vivid characters but too immature for me to empathize with their issues. Might work better if at least one or two of the outlaws were comical. I did not find the two voices compatible, especially when each narrator also did the opposite role. I think a single narrator might would be better.
what is not to like. Great writing, amazing love story and I couldn't stop listening.
"I was unsure what to expect but, LOVED IT!"
I preordered this book because I thought the summary sounded interesting and I love my alpha male biker books. If you're looking for a book with a lot of steamy sex scenes in it then this book isn't for you but if you want a relationship building experience with an alpha who doesn't like women and a girl who grew up in a small town and has a sharp tongue this is it. The main male character who is the president of the MC isn't your typical MC president. He has quirks and idiosyncrasies that sets him apart from your typical alpha male. I loved the book and i had never heard the narrators before but they were surprisingly really good. I'm always hesitant to buy a book with narrators I've never heard before but it paid off in the end. I listened to the whole book straight through because I couldn't turn it off.
"Was this really a MC story"
Nothing like any MC book I have listened to. Sorry to say I didn't really care for this book. As far as the romance there wasn't any. There was one Hot sex scene at the very end. A tough biker who doesn't care for sex really!!!I already purchased book two and not sure if I want to listen to it. Male narrator was a disappointment.
"Loved this MC audio.."
Making the Cut was an awesome MC listen. It made the miles on the treadmill fly by. Scott Hildreth sure can write a helluva MC book and Biff Summers and Bunny Warren sure can narrate the hell outta it!!
