If you're looking for a hard-hitting raw MC listen then this is it.... but with "you're mine" romance too that turned out to be quite sweet underneath the whole bad-ass exterior. Great start to her new series of Biker Bastards.
Becca wasn't in a good place when Puck found her and rescued her but it took 5 years before they finally talked properly to each other again and then their sexual chemistry took over but Becca was an independent woman who didn't want to be an old lady because it brought back too many dark memories of her past life. And that past life was coming back to haunt her life now with blackmail, betrayal and ultimatums and Becca could only rely on herself to get out of this mess..... which proved to be a very bad idea.
Rival biker gangs, clubhouse business, old ladies, death threats, a murder or two, twists, raw no holes barred frenzied sex scenes, biker talk, heated passionate scenes and a romance - biker style. Told from dual POV's, good narration and HEA Epilogue.
Worth a credit? I loved it, was caught up in every delicious scene and yes, IMO creditworthy (as long as you know what you're getting - slutty alpha males, angst, abuse, strong heroine, action, suspense, steamy sex and a very unconventional romance).

There is something about JW's book that is an auto download for me. I mean I will even put up with crappy narration because her books are just that great.
This is the story of Puck and his property Bex. If you have been following the Reapers Series that you have some idea of who he is. In my opinion this book was just good enough... not awful though I have one particular scene that was truly a turn off in this book but that minor disruption did not take away from the book overall.
The story begins with the celebration of Puck & Painter's release from prison. It is during this event that Puck meets and falls for Becca. After a night to remember - both please & heartbreaking pain - well things go from worse to s*t by the time morning rolls around.
Flash forward 5 years with these 2 dancing around each other because Puck feels like crap for what he did to and what happened to Becca as well as Becca's fear (well justified fear) of Puck and MCs in general JW finally kicks in the romance we know and love!
I don't think I could ever think that a borderline asshole of a guy and a borderline mental girl could ever make things work but I now know better! Thanks to JW.... Unlike her other series this was a tame version of her usual style. Still enjoyable and great glimpses at other characters that may have their books. The bonus was AFTER the epilogue... Now that is a book I would love to read if JW decides to write one...
The narration was not the greatest but still okay enough to make it to the end.
Definitely worth a credit..and definately to no pass it!

great book, narrated beautifully never bored through the book. Would recommend it to those who love biker romance books.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Another thoroughly entertaining Motorcycle Club yarn. Links into characters who have had their own stories in previous books but only in passing so nothing lost if you haven't read these books . Men are sexy leather clad , Harley riding, alpha types . No cliff hangers so you don't have to go,looking for the next book ( although you may want to ) ! . I would totally recommend these books also any by Nicole Snow but not sure they are available on Audible ( yet?). These stories well worth the credit.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I fell a little in love with Puck ! So much easier to do as Johnathan McClain voice is just how I would imagine this to be . American , a little rough with a great sense of timing that makes the conversations between Puck and Becca so lively and just so entertaining .
What does Allyson Ryan and Johnathan McClain bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Allysons voice is good . No problems with it at all but as I mentioned it's Johnathans voice that did it for me. Went to Audible site to see if johnathan had read anymore MC books but alas none listed ( at least not on the Audible UK site) .Just to add here I have read a few of Joanna Wyldes books and I also enjoyed them. I enjoyed the audio version because the actors didn't let me down . They sounded JUST as I thought they should sound .
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No laughter or tears but huge enjoyment
Any additional comments?
I would gladly give audible more of my hard earned money if they had more Johnathan McClain reading Joanna Wylde MC books. ..certainly more MC books in general . Anyone who enjoys Gina Showalter or Kresley Cole may enjoy these books .
I really enjoyed this book, I will be getting the whole series, thank you Joanna Wylde, loved this book
Wow what a great start to a new series of badass bikers and there screwed up MC world. Becka maybe a lost, beaten and used as a teenager, that doesn't make her weak. A strong female character gives the story a bit of girt, it not just the badass bikers that have all the balls. Great Narrators, narrator's can either kill a story and make it ten times better, Allyson and Johnathan give this book it's fifth star.Well done Joanna, cant wait for the next story.
