Overall, I liked the books. Shayla Black can really make a scene sizzle. This is my first experience with Lexi Blake and I hope it won't be my last. I thought the story line was interesting. The heroes were the usual types: commitment-phobe, jock, and geek. They truly made an amazing group for the heroine.
That being said...The heroine is supposed to be African American and 26--I did not feel that. She just made too many errors that one only sees in young women written as non-black. I just did not get a feel that the writers understood characteristics of heroines who are mature and black. NO--that doesn't mean she has to talk slang. There was an error of victimization that she accepted--that at 26 NO woman should take.
Someone writes on my wall in blood--IT'S ON!
Lawyer talks to me disrespectfully--IT'S ON!
Person is creepy--IT'S ON!
At a certain age, all women feel an inner strength that will not let any one walk over them. She never followed her instincts--this is typical of a young woman, not one her age. This was not the case here. The heroine stood up to her men, but did not stand up to the right people. Maybe it's just me, but I just like spunkier women. The sex scenes were hot and well done. The storyline was okay as all the characters had growth to complete. Honestly, my favorite was Tate. He was hilarious. I will continue to listen to both Shayla Black and Lexi Blake. This book is 15 hours and I did not skip ahead once. Ryan West was a great choice for the narrator! I loved his voice and he really added to the intimate scenes! Yaay! I really enjoyed the read and do recommend it.
I really hope that I have not offended anyone with my gripes because I did not intend to do so. I wrestled with this review, but in the end, had to be honest. Thanks for reading and I hope this review helped you.

Narrator did a great job. My only wish is a different voice for Belle. He made her sound too wimpy/needy. She struck me as a stronger woman.
Loved the story. Pleasantly surprised by the humor. The touch of mystery was suspenseful albeit obvious. Good back story on the characters let you get to really know them. And of course the sex was amazing! Nice flow and pace overall.

Belle is one lucky lady! The story is strong enough to be made into a movie, it's that good. Three perfectly emotionally flawed, beautifully sculptured men who want nothing more but to love and cherish one woman, pure fantasy but oh so delicious. The narrator was brilliant, taking on all four characters and having the ability to convey all their characteristic with his one voice is a real talent. Overall pretty good, will read more from these authors.
