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

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

The first 2 are great......

I the first 2 are great.
I felt short changed with Connor and even more with Quinn. The first relationship with Emma and Gavin spanned 2 books...we could watch the development. The last 2 were basically insta love...no angst..no drama. I particularly had wanted so much more fleshing out and a deeper dive into Quinn as the oldest but he was basically Connor. I hate to say it but Im disappointed.

Worse than fifty shades of grey...….

The main problem I have with this book is the female lead, Emma. The writer makes her spineless, brainless and pathetic. This story is worse than Fifty Shades of Grey. A mega millionaire with a body sculpted by Michelangelo himself, hung like a horse, with an overly dominant personality that requires submission from whatever idiot girl that falls all over him due to his looks and money. All due to no father and a mother that was a whore and drug addict. Remind you of anything Mr. Grey?! The most ridiculous story line ever created. This kind of crap should never be written and even it was, it should never gain popularity. This kind of story sets women back at least 50 years. I am not a feminine rights activist by any means but this kind of horribly written crap enrages me. No woman would ever let a guy treat her like this and no real man would ever want a woman with no mind of her own that felt she was alive just to please his every whim. It is not sexy to be ordered about and talked to like an animal given a command for a treat. Come to think of it, that is exactly what the sex scenes are like to listen to, among other parts of this messed up story. A master giving his dog a command and without following it she will not get her treat which he thinks is himself. The irony to all of this is he calls her pet!!!!! It’s laughable to listen to the story with this kind of scenario in your head. A dog instead of a person. That is how this girl is treated. I cannot express enough how horrible this crap is. To be manipulated in thinking you love this guy and willing to do anything he wanted to get just one look, one kind word thrown your way. There is nothing good about crap like this. In my personal opinion, this speaks to the lack of competence of the writer.
