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.

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!
