spicy story

the narrator was great. it about 3 brothers founding love. the author developed each brother fairytales love story and misadventures.
the 2 first story was good but the last one was more like rushing to finish the book. it kills all the good feelings and the expectation vibe of the story. overall, good but too long for a book that's not too spicy. will recommend if you're big dreamer

good book

well written. poorly narratored. If well narrated this book has amazing potential to be lively.

Petulant whiny female lead

From a previous review that captures this book perfectly:

“I’ve waited since the first hour for Emma to grow a backbone. The angst could be just as good if she stood up for herself with Gavin. And it wouldn’t have ticked me off. I love Gavin, his damaged ass-holery can be redeemed.

But Emma is too much of a mouse and led poor, sweet Cooper on too much for me to keep listening.

Too bad. The writing is good, but I’m going to find a book with a heroine who isn’t a mouse.”

I will add to this by saying it can’t be possible for this ridiculous woman to be real...so much drama and over-thinking and angst...no one could live their life like that...it’s exhausting! She kept saying “no way” but then said “yes” immediately...sounds like she’s standing up for herself when making herself more of a doormat than ever...seriously woman!

Strong start leaving me wanting more at the end

Each of the stories follows a different brother and has a different theme to their relationship. The first two books follow, Gavin who is controlling, but protective. The third book is based on Cooper, the "nice guy" who falls in love easy and gets hurt even easier. And the fourth book follows Quinn, the lonely older brother who falls for a much younger woman.

I really loved the story line for Gavin because the plot went into great detail and had so many twists that the characters had to fight through. Although I can't relate to the dominant/submissive relationship they have I was still able to be pulled into the story line. Cooper on the other hand was the story I was waiting for all throughout books 1 and 2 (I would've loved to have seen more of his perspective earlier on - I love a nice guy), and was a bit disappointed with how I left the story with questions. There were so many directions it could've taken to gain some depth, but instead their HEA felt rushed. Finally, the last book lost me - I didn't feel like there was much character development and the storyline flat lined.

Overall, it was a good series and had great narrators (I mean, you really can't go wrong with Zachary Webber) but I'm a sucker for a slow burn and love watching conflict drag out. I got that in the first two books, a bite in the third, and a small taste in the fourth, which left me a bit unsatisfied.

My...My...My...💣💣💥💥💥

This is one of the naughtiest, sexiest, dirty, yet fulfilling series I have listened to and I loved it. Didn't know I was such a naughty girl myself. These Kingsley Brothers are just so Alpha, sexy, needy and all male. I am still blushing!
3 broken brothers who had angst, broken hearts and found love. I think my favorite was Gavin and Emma's story. It took 2 books to tell their story and the passion was oozing from these books.
Megan and Zachary were fabulous narrators in this series. And who doesn't love listening to Zachary Webber. That mans voice is a secret weapon!!! And Joe Arden as Quinn was wonderful.
I loved these books, the writing and the narrators. They made you feel the heat and passion and some panting too. Been listening all weekend and thank you to Kendall Ryan.

Yummy!!

All the characters are very likeable and interesting with relatively low drama situations.
Bedroom scenes are detailed enough to be sexy without over doing it. The narrators also did an outstanding job!!
For the amount of listening hours and well written story lines this is so worthy of a credit.

NOPE!!!!!

1st I have to say that I'm a huge fan of Zachary Webber, his voice is so HOT can not be match. I got a few chapters in from the 2nd book and told myself that if Emma Bell showed one more display of weakness I was done listening. I'm all for the strong sexy submissive and the sizzling dom, there is always a level of trust. However when Emma thought Gavin had murdered his ex then agreed to leave town with him on a private jet anyway, I had it with the story. If Emma would have had more of a back bone it would have been a great story I'm sure.....

Its was okay

This audio was just ok for me. The narrators ZW and JA was always a pleasure to listen to. However what I did not like was the weakness of these women. Women are not that week no matter how difficult their pass. The Kingsley brothers all had a rough up bringing but they turned out to be rich, strong and powerful men. Why hadn't the women also turned out strong if not rich and powerful; but they were all so weak and needy. This was a downfall for me.

Another downfall was allowing two brothers to fall in love with the same woman. Even though in the end one of them found love in someone else however this did not seem realistic. Another downfall.

Great performances and ok story

Overall the stories were ok. There was a good bit that seemed to resemble the Fifty Shades story, which I thought was unoriginal.
The performances were great and I did enjoy listening.

It waa OK!

It waas just OK! Nothing I would care to listen to again. All three brothers married so quickly after meeting their woman makes it a little unbelievable.... yes I know it's fiction but I like when the story is a bit realistic.

Good deal for a single credit

Audible has the four book series as a single set available for one credit. Plus, it’s Zachary Webber & Joe Arden 💗 (I wasn’t familiar with either female narrator. ETA: Actually, I’ve heard Ava Erickson under another name and like her.)

Dirty Little Secret:

This first book ends in a cliffhanger, and so far ~ I don’t hate it, but I don’t love it either. Gavin is a jerk, plain and simple. He has his reasons and since it’s alternating POV, we get insight into that so it’s somewhat understandable and he does sort of attempt to let Emma know he’s trying to get his act together. However Emma is a bit irritating in her inability to really stand up for herself for quite some time despite Gavin’s disrespect & gruff demeanor.

As always, Zachary Webber is amazing ~ but I think the fact that he voiced Christian in Grey served to further heighten the similarities between the Gavin and Christian characters. This is my first time listening to Megan Tusing and I mostly enjoyed her take on the character, but she came off overly whiny at times I didn’t feel it was called for.

3 stars for a solid start.

Dirty Little Promise:

The first book ended in a cliffhanger, and I was hoping that the second half would elevate the characters and story a bit higher. Not so much. A solid book and a basically enjoyable story, but I doubt I’ll find myself listening to this over and over. There were these “mini crisis” that sort of popped up but were “poof” solved and it felt a little bit like maybe they could have dropped one or two of them and spent time developing the others into better storylines.

As always, Zachary Webber is amazing ~ but again I had the same issues with Megan Tusing coming off overly whiny at times I didn’t feel it was called for.

Torrid Little Affair:

4 stars. The first two books left poor Cooper completely devastated and It was so nice for him to get his HEA. I actually liked this better than the totality of the first two books. I felt like it was more realistic and the angst wasn’t as contrived. Corrine and Cooper come together with an original understanding that they will have a sex-only relationship. When feelings come to play ~ Corrine’s secrets threaten their relationship. This sounds cliche, but it pulled off in a unique way that makes Cooper and even more amazing man.

As always, Zachary Webber is wonderful. This is my first time listening to Eva Erickson under this name and I loved her.

Tempting Little Tease:

Joe Arden was great here, and the Italian was swoon-worthy. I liked Megan Tusing’s performance much better in this one than I did in the first two.

3 stars. This was a cute wrap up to the series. I really like May/December and this fit the bill. Quinn (38) falls for his Italian tutor, Allesandra (22) right before she’s scheduled to move to Italy. This was short and sweet, but also nothing spectacular ~ so I give it 3 comfy stars.

There’s a little epilogue that sort-of wraps up the series. It’s obvious there was going to be another book or spin-off that included a long-lost Kingsley brother ~ but as far as I can tell, that never came to fruition.

Overall ~ this series is definitely worth a credit.
