I think this was my first from King's Motorcycle Club and this one was not exactly what I was expecting. I really liked the power dynamics and the undertaker is a really unexpected and morally grey character. I loved the varying expectations. I loved the big, beefy submissive and smaller, lyth Dom. It started a bit shockingly and then you drawn into a unique murky world of The Undertaker

Good series opener!

so many emotions packed into this story. I really enjoyed Jack and Ed's story and while it was sad at parts I'm so glad everything worked out πŸ˜ƒ

RomCom at its best!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5 stars πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ Heat Level: 4 🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧 Narration: 5 (OMG, Joel is just awesome!) This is truly a Rom-Com at its best! OMG, I love Oz (and Silas)! Lily’s wit and humor had me bursting with laughter. Oz’s razor-sharp tongue is fantastic and Joel’s narration elevates the book to new heights. A fast-paced, quick-witted story with a totally lovable “Lord” turned vet, with a giant heart, ready for love, and a slightly jaded, pocket-sized Irishman with sass, snark, and passion just waiting to be unleashed. From the opening sentence, I was snorting with laughed and completely hooked on Oz’s big personality. I loved watching him bomb an interview, shove a Lord (& his new boss) in the closet, take on an insurmountable renovation task, and sass anyone who got it his way, all while trying not to fall for his new boss! These two men will captivate you and have you laughing from the word go. Be prepared for love, lust, sass, and humor, all compacted into the pocket rocket that is Oz! If you’re looking for a laugh and a hug (& a good bit of steam too) then this is the perfect book! I loved it so much and can’t recommend it enough 😍 P.S. also get ready for awesome cameos from Lily’s Mixed Messages, Book 3 πŸ˜‰

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5 stars πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ Heat Level: 3.5 🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧 Narration: 5 OMG “Flove” indeed!! It took me a long time to finish this book because I didn’t want this series to end. I was so in love with all these characters and was sad that this was the last couple, with Jet who was one of my favs early on. While I’m sad the series is finished I loved this book so much. I love Jet and his hopelessly Disney romantic heart. This book has everything, with epic connections, long coming second chances, awesome wit and humor, steamy hot chemistry and great characters you can’t help but love. I love Eden’s wit and humor and she did Jet proud! Highly recommended series! LOVED it!!!

I love Danny & Bond, Wesley Bond!!

🌟🌟🌟🌟 4.5 stars πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ Heat Level: 3.75 🎧🎧🎧🎧 Narration: 4.5 I love Danny & Bond, Wesley Bond!! The story continues and we’re treated to more from the adorable Danny and the socially awkward Wes. They played off each other in book one and were both, hot and cold as the story went on. Add in a new “case” from Charlie and the mysterious “Interested Party” and Wes and Danny are posing as boyfriends! Of course, not everything goes to plan and Danny and Wes can no longer fight their connection and give in to what they want, which quickly turns into much more than either of them expected. Now add in the thrill and danger of the case they’re on, the unfortunate inconvenience of coms being turned on at inopportune times and the whole team posing in unique situations and “uniforms” and you’ve got hilarity mixed with a little suspense and a whole lot of steam! I loved it and can’t wait to see more from this unique 5 now 7-some! I’m looking forward to seeing what Ridge has in store for him and his case, up next!! Thanks for reading!

🌟🌟🌟🌟 4.5 stars πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ Heat Level: 3.75 🎧🎧🎧🎧 Narration: 4.5 An awesome collection of ragtag, unique and colorful characters! Such great humor and wit, make up this unusual read. Not what I expected but was still so good. I loved these characters, their unique stories, and connections. A very one of a kind creation! I loved Steele and Breck. Their connection was hot from the start and there back and forth was hilarious. I felt they worked so well together and I loved the instant connection and Steele's need to drive Breck's twin brother crazy. It makes for great reading! I also loved Danny. He's just so sweet, cute and funny and I know there is more to his story. I felt each character had something interesting to add to this collection of "criminals, but not really" and this was a great read setting up the characters and the way they are being "forced" together by their deceased friend/enemy/arch-nemesis. Each character is unique and holds an air of mystery. This story follows Breck & Steele but I'm looking forward to unfolding all the others. Danny's up next! My only comment on the narration was that I don't know who's who and while each narrator added different tones and dialects for each character they didn't match with each other narration. So by one narrator, narrated Breck with a softer spoken and little bit sweeter voice and then the other narrator spoke Breck with a gruff raspy voice, so it took a bit to get the story straight and remember who was who, especially with so many different characters. Thanks for reading!

🌟🌟🌟🌟 4.5 stars πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ Heat Level: 4.5 Oh, my word! Such alpha passion! Now I'd say this is a seriously hot book, with tension, care, love, sass, and humor. I love God and Day and really enjoyed their story (I've read the rest of the series before this one. I know crazy right!) I liked the power dynamics and care between these two. Were introduced to them briefly in the prologue as 'rookies', they fall in love over the four-plus years they've worked together, then we're brought back into the story as they finally realize they love each other and start a passion-filled relationship. I loved the give and take between theses to and their care for each other is always present. I love God's overwhelming presence and Day's quick wit and humor. I loved how close they grew and how God's story was told and how he healing with the help of Day! The couple play scenes (a foursome) was hot, hot, hot! Oh my, pages set on fire. I will say I feel the series has improved as it's gone on and I don't necessarily feel this was as good as I had hoped, but God and Day are the foundation and I love the whole team they are yet to assemble. It's weird reviewing in reverse but I still love God and Day as characters and they all just get better in time! Thanks for reading!

🌟🌟🌟🌟 4.5 stars πŸ”₯ πŸ”₯ πŸ”₯ Heat Level: 3 Beautiful, passionate and sweet! Such an enjoyable read! I loved book one but I think this one was better! Falling for your childhood crush is such a sweet trope and I loved it!! A passionate and powerful couple that complement each other in every way. An adventure across countries to create a soccer based charity for underprivileged kids and a path to fall in love. I loved the story, the characters, and the emotions. Louisa injected so much passion, care and love into this story I could feel it in every word. I felt for Si and Luc at every turn, every setback and every step forward. Just such a beautiful story! So enjoyable! A fantastic group of characters and all the feels you could want! Interesting and really well narrated with varying accents, dialects and great overall narration. Thoroughly enjoyable!! Thanks for reading!

🌟🌟🌟🌟 4.5 stars πŸ”₯ πŸ”₯ πŸ”₯ Heat Level: 3 It is like a fairy tale! I loved Ben! He such a great character! So cute, adorkable and humble. Such a wonderful meet-cute when Ben meets his billionaire! Ben was awkwardly charming and Léo can't help but been thorough enthralled. Ben is such a down to earth character and he can't help but make Léo rethink all he's ever known. A dream holiday turns into a dream romance with the picturesque backdrop of Europe. This was a great piece of escapism with wonderful characters you can't help but laugh with and fall in love with. I just love Ben!! I look forward to more of these guys in book two. Just a great read!! Interesting take on an Australian accent with the narration but it's okay. It's a hard one to master LOL. Thankfully the narration of Ben flowed well with the other accents and didn't sound too strange. Overall, good narration and it added to the "escapism feel" of the story. Thanks for reading!
