Publisher's Summary

Forget knights on white horses, how about a hero riding a motorcycle with shining chrome?

Phoebe’s spirit was forged into steel by a childhood split between foster care and the streets. Now grown, the simple act of accepting the wrong drink traps her in the underworld of human trafficking. On her way to be sold to a Mafia sociopath who’s obsessed with her innocent looks and unbreakable spirit, Phoebe desperately reaches out for help from an unlikely hero.

Sharp, VP of the Dark Sons Motorcycle club and former Navy SEAL sniper, has long ago learned being right is not the same thing as being lawful. With his brothers, he lives, fights, and loves hard, living every day by their code of honor. He never thought to take an old lady, especially not one who looks as delicate or has been as abused as Phoebe. But Sharp soon finds himself losing his heart to her, vowing to protect her no matter the cost.

Far from a natural match, Sharp struggles with whether she can ever accept the man he is and not just the safety he represents.

When Phoebe asked for help, she’d been willing to do anything to be safe. But she hadn’t expected to find a new home, an unconventional family, and a man who sets both her heart and body ablaze. Can she overcome her fear and trauma and convince Sharp she’s more than just someone to protect?

This is book one in the Dark Sons Motorcycle Club series and can be enjoyed independently.

Publisher’s note: This dark contemporary romance has elements of danger, mystery, suspense, adult themes, possible triggers for some listeners, adult content, sensual scenes, and power exchange. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase.

Lexi Maynard & Connor Brown are awesome!

This is my first time listening to a book narrated by Lexi Maynard & Connor Brown. They did an awesome job bringing Phoebe, Edge and the rest of the characters to life!

Connor's deep voice is just plain sexy! And Lexi's range of characters was perfect - from a young child to a Southern woman with attitude. They were both amazing and I look forward to listening to them again!

Book Review:

Phoebe didn't mind the rough crowd at the roadside bar. A year ago she would have fit in perfectly. She had only spent a few weeks of the year living on the streets due to her fast fingers emptying pockets and getting paid under the table for waitressing. She would do anything to have those days back.

The man with the cultured voice sitting next to her in the tailored suit was worse than a drug selling pimp. He was violent and trained and sold women like broken toys. The men who attended his twisted auctions and sex parties just laughed and joined in on the abuse of the female party favors.

Being taken out of the training center was a rare treat. The public scenery should have been calming after all the cruelty and depravity she's witnessed over the past six months, but all she felt was dread. She was Mitchel Thomas's broken pet. She was beginning to wonder if she should just end it all.

She didn't understand why he had had her sallow and gaunt appearance covered up with makeup, dress her fine clothes and jewels and have product put onto her blonde curls if they were just going to sit in a dimly lit bar. And when she overheard who he was selling her to her dread turned into numbing fear because the man was the sickest of them all.

He had been trying to buy her for months, but Mitchel had said no until now, just keeping him supplied with other girls. Girls that he beat to death and then had sex with their dead corpses. She knew she wouldn't be able to survive if he got her in his possession. Because that's all she was - a possession to be used as they wished.

Phoebe made the mistake of accepting a drink from the wrong guy and woke up in this nightmare chained lying on a concrete floor. Everytime she tried to figure out an escape plan there were more drugs and beatings and a struggle to hold onto her sanity.

The compound was where the women Mitchel bought from various lowlifes were tortured until they were totally submission and a broken shell - if they survived at all. The ones who didn't die were usually sold within a few weeks, but Phoebe had been through the foster system and had learned how to obsorb and revel in the pain.

Her attention was drawn to the other side of the bar as ten rough-looking bikers flirted with the waitress. Although they were all tall, muscled and tattooed, she couldn't keep her eyes off the gorgeous man at the head of the table. He was more reserved than his companions and his brown eyes took in everything around him and he gave her a smirk and wink when he caught her staring.

Sharp was the local chapter VP of the Dark Sons, one of the largest MC's in the country, and he and his brothers were taking a break before getting back on the road for another three hours. Unlike the other guys who would be staying at the compound or going home to their families he was heading back out to schedule an escort for a gun delivery.

The bar wasn't busy being the middle of a Sunday afternoon and the small beauty at the other side of the bar didn't belong in a place like this. When he saw her get up to approach the bar he decided to have some fun. If a little flirting caused a fistfight he knew his brothers had his back.

When he asked if he could buy her a drink he couldn't hear her soft reply so he tucked her hair behind her shoulders and noticed tiny scars on her neck, but the distressing part were the purple and black marks covering her back and shoulders that even makeup couldn't cover. Her tearful emerald green eyes looked up at him as she whispers "Please. Help me."

This book is amazing! It is very well written and the characters are fully developed and relatable. I love Phoebe and Sharp. This girl had a hard life even before she fell into the hands of a monster, but she didn't have a hardened character. The struggles that she goes through to fit into the MC life and to trust these men to protect and not harm her are heartbreaking. I love how she brings these MC men to their knees when they get a taste of her cooking.

Sharp, along with many of the members of the MC club, was military trained and lived by their own laws now. The raw sexual chemistry between Phoebe and Sharp burns up the pages. Sharp doesn't want to damage Phoebe with any of his rough sexual kinks especially after her torture, but she has other ideas and sets out to show him exactly how much she is willing to take.

This book is action-packed from page one. It is packed full of emotions and you are rooting for a few men to be murdered and help in hiding their bodies. If you have a problem reading human trafficking, violence against women, kinky sex or killing this may not be the book for you, but otherwise this is definitely the book to read for spine-tingling raw sex and action-packed chaos. Highly recommend this book!!!

Sharp and the Dark Sons to the rescue!

This book was really good. Pixie suffered horribly at the hands of the person who kidnapped her for human trafficking. When she is sent to get drinks at a bar, Sharpe comes over to her and she whispers for him to help her. The man who took her sees this but Sharp takes her back to the Dark Sons Motorcycle club. A lot happens while she is there, including falling in love with Sharp and he with her. He does his best to protect her but there is a trader among them. I really enjoyed this book. Lexi Maynard and Conner Brown did a great job with the narration.

Dark Sons MC

The first book in Ann Jensen's Dark Sons MC has everything I enjoy in a MC romance. I love Pixie's story and how she is strong but vulnerable at times too. Sharp is the MC Vice President that rescues Pixie from a hopeless situation. This book has a great story, alpha male brothers, strong women, MC family and it's spicy hot. The narrators do an excellent job conveying the story. I highly recommend this book.

Phew

This had me on edge and wanting to know more of what will happen next. Very interesting and a great story wonderfully written. Although, the characters were messed up but the story and hea makes it up and worth the buy. I can honestly recommend this if you enjoy MC and rough sex scenes. Trigger warnings for the faint of hearts.

Quite an adventure!

This is a story that took me on a adventure. I easily fell into Phoebe’s character and believed her wanting to escape no matter what. My only issue with her character was the quickness she turned to Sharp. I enjoyed meeting Sharp and his MC. I especially liked the old ladies. They really helped show Phoebe the lay of the land.

I did listen timo this on audio. Both narrators did a good job and sounded wonderful

DNF...

Didn't get into this story and got bored. I don't think that post trauma of a survivor or sex trafficking was depicted accurately in some ways. Also, I don't think the narrators were a good fit. The male narrator's voice didn't have the depth expected by Sharp nor did he do female voices well.

Dark

I found Saved by the Dark to be a dark MC romance with lots of possible triggers. The story held my attention from the beginning until the end. The characters were strong and likable. I am looking forward to listening to more books in this series. I think both Lexi Maynard and Conner Brown did a really good job bringing this story to life.

Very enjoyable

I really enjoyed this MC book. It seemed to have an edge to it that quite a few other books don’t have. I love the brutal realistic writing style of Ann and I feel this gave the book an edge. A great performance from both Lexi and Connor.
