Summary

Book one in the Iron Horse MC series

Before I met Smoke, I'd never been kissed - really kissed - by a man, let alone a biker sex god bent on taking my virginity and my heart. I got dragged into the deadly world of the Iron Horse MC by my crazy twin sister, who is engaged to the club's president, and my even crazier mom, who cares only about herself. Smoke has been assigned by the club to keep me safe even though he's everything of which I should be afraid.

He's the kind of man who lives by his own rules and does whatever he wants whenever he wants, but he treats me like I'm something rare and precious, not a socially dysfunctional basket case who has no idea how to love but needs him more than her next breath.

Not that my feelings matter, because if we don't find my mother soon, the only thing I'll have to be worried about is who is going to kill me first.

HOT!! HOT!!

I love Ann Mayburn books. I didn't think they could get any better until I downloaded this book. Smoke is really hot and Andy E Ross has the sexiest voice that I've heard in any Audible book. Can we please have more

Could have been so much more

Would you try another book written by Ann Mayburn or narrated by Andy E. Ross and Stephanie Wyles ?

Im not sure I would

Any additional comments?

The story line was masked by all the sex so more about sex than the actual plot which actually had potential

H.H.HOT ROMANCE, MC DRAMA & I LOVED EVERY MINUTE

When Smoke is told to secretly watch Storm by the President of the Iron Horse MC he becomes obsessed by her so by the time they finally meet the tattooed, pierced, hot as hell and very Alpha Sargent At Arms is already half in love with her. But it's when Storm is kidnapped and then her life is threatened by the Russia's that Smoke's protective caring side kicks in, he doesn't want to let her out of his sight and is desperate to keep her safe. Then jealousy and possessiveness is added to his feelings so when he realises Storm has a painful reaction when being touched by some people he's all too happy to tell everyone to back off from HIS property.

Storm's a no nonsense waitress, a never really been kissed virgin with 'issues', she's had an unusual tough upbringing and she's been sheltered which makes her mild natured but when riled up she speaks her mind and isn't afraid to kicks ass. Her world comes crashing down after she's kidnapped and, when rescued, she's told her twin sister and Mother are missing, the Russians are after them all and that she is now under the protection of the Iron Horse MC.... and in particular the leather clad Biker sex God called Smoke.

Sparks fly, tension builds, the mystery thickens, clues are unearthed which leads to more questions, the plot twists and all the time Smoke is claiming Storm and introducing her to the pleasures of some hot sex (which includes toys, talk of BDSM and more). A grab you from the start new MC listen with it's interesting colorful members and the plot's building which will hopefully become an explosive MUST HAVE second book. Because this is a 'to be continued' listen, not quite a cliffhanger, but just as annoying.

Worth a credit? I thought this was an action-packed, addictive, just one more chapter listen, mainly told from Storm's POV but there are a few chapters from Smoke's POV too. With a romance that builds sweetly, a mysterious plot that's nicely unfurling, and a loveable H/H who are drooling for each other but what makes this a great listen is the dual narration. Because the male narrator says the male voices and the female narrates the female voices and this, in my opinion, is when dual narrators really work well and Andy Ross' deep voice was so smouldering and sexy. Definitely worth a credit or a buy.

Sexy read, superb narration, dang cliffhanger!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. Sexy scenes with drama and suspense.

What did you like best about this story?

Great story to get lost in, and it deviates from the over-used angst we see so much of in this genre. Obviously liked Smoke, but also liked the mix of drama and suspense as well as Swan's background - again, different from the typical.

What does Andy E. Ross and Stephanie Wyles bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Unusual for the narration to steal the show, but I have to say it really brought the characters to life, LOVE having dual narrators, I wish more audio's would take note!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not extreme, no tears, but is is book one

Any additional comments?

Although really enjoyed the book, I would have held off purchasing it until the second book was out. I normally catch these things, but missed it. I hope book 2 is out soon.

Narration was better than the Story

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I didn't care much for the story but maybe people who like extra-long sex scenes (which I don't usually mind). I found myself skipping over some of it only because it was over done and got a a bit boring.

What do you think your next listen will be?

"The Will" by Kristin Ashley

Which character – as performed by Andy E. Ross and Stephanie Wyles – was your favorite?

Smoke and Swan. Stephanie Wyles did a great job with Swan and all of the female voices. I liked Andy's voice for Smoke and this is the first book I've listened to that had dual narration like this instead of one reading one chapter and making their own voice for the male or female characters. I absolutely loved it! However, while I loved the dual narration and really hope more audio books are done this way, Andy's tone was off a lot of the time and didn't match the tone of whatever was going on. It was monotone.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Exquisite Trouble?

I would shorten some of the sex scenes. Again, I'm no prude and enjoy steamy reads as much as the next person, but there's only so much I can take before rolling my eyes.

Any additional comments?

I kept waiting for the action to happen... Then, all of a sudden the story ends. I stared at my phone, totally confused and laughed. It wasn't so much a cliffhanger but still left you expecting more. Something... Anything... My only thought was, "Are you telling me that I listened through 11+ hours of this story and the climax (pun intended) was when she finally gave up the V-card?!? Well, duh! No surprise there!!! Ugh!" I will definitely NOT be getting the next book.

Great book great narrators hot hot hot

I love the narrators it's really great when you can have a woman speaking the woman part and the man speaking the man part. Lots of steaming romance plus thrilling drama.
But this is a cliffhanger. I'm going to start book two next. And I can't wait.
I just hope there isn't a book 3 that I have to wait for, since audible does not tell you this when a story has other books. A lot of them not being cliffhangers is fine with me but I really hate listening to a book and not knowing at the end that it's a like
cliff hanger and you have to wait for book 2 or three.
But I greatly enjoyed this book.
But if you're not into dirty talking lovemaking seen this may not be the book for you.

Male narrator lacking

Male Narrator has a very fantastic voice but no rhythm or ease just stiff
Also felt like there was just not a lot of depth to the characters. Really wanted to like it.

WTF??? No Ending, not even a cliff hanger.

If you like your books with 90% sex and 10% plot development....(notice I said development) then this book is for you. Nothing but endless sex, from masturbation to BDSM....yeah it has all that under the guise of protecting his lil virgin from some evil men, (a rival MC Club??) to finding a missing mother, and an identical twin who went to find her. This is the gist of the story, do we find the mother.....NO.....do we find the twin....No...the book ends with him, telling her survivalist parents he intends to marry her....the end. And this is the end for me....I will not purchase the next book in this lame series.
