The narrators were great, her southern twang and his deep timber, they fit perfectly for the storyline. I look forward to the next book. Thank you.

Overall, I liked Whiskey Neat but had a hard time connecting with the characters, and have a few comments.
First, the story felt like it had gaps in it. I found myself checking to see if I skipped a chapter and actually rewound it several times just be sure I didn't miss anything. The biggest gap revolves around Griffin and Lenore relationship. They first meet when Griffin goes into Lenore sex shop to buy batteries, and Lenore gets his name from a credit card. The next time they see each other, Griffin and some other members of the MC are beating up one of her neighbors. Griffin tells her to leave but she is shell shocked and just stands there he takes her hand and walks her to her place, walks in and checks out all the rooms and see a toy on her nightstand and actually smells it. Later that night he breaks in Lenore home and they have sex. He basically tells her she can no longer use the toy and can only "get off" with him. I'm all for instant love, but they never really spoke or even given each other their names. The sex scenes were good, but there was no chemistry or build up between them.
Second, I wasn't able to connect emotionally with the hero. Griffin's son was murdered and the story eludes to how he is suffering but I never really felt any emotions from him except for his need to ensure the people responsible are caught and pay for what they've done.
Lastly, Uncertain Saints MC is made of law enforcement that walk a thin line between right and wrong. Normally when people comment crimes like beating someone up, they don't want witness. These renegade law enforcement really did not feel like a real MC. They had motorcycles, and "church" but that was about it. They were more like hurt law enforcement officers brought together by tragic events working together to ensure justice is served.
The narration was AWESOME. Mason Lloyd always does a great job especially with a gruff alpha MC characters. This is the first audio I've heard with Kendall Taylor and liked her performance and the accent she used to portray Lenore's character.
I did like Lenore's character. She was funny, feisty and had me laughing. I felt this was a good start with a lot of potential and will try other books in the series. If this story was expanded on to develop the chemistry, angst and plot, it would be an excellent story. Of course, this is just my opinion. (Overall Rating 3.5 Stars)
