Their Bounty, Book 1

51QGHhCpBzL

Length: 92,000 words
Audio Length: 9 hours and 53 minutes

— Taken. Prized. Possessed. Loved. —

Clover is an orphan and has led a tough and chaotic life. No stability. No money. No friends. He trusts no one.

His already miserable life takes a nosedive when he ends up in the hands of a human trafficking gang. Someone has placed a request for a young albino man, and Clover is to become the property of a mysterious buyer who will stop at nothing to satisfy their depraved desire. Clover’s fate seems sealed until four bounty hunters appear to take out his captors and accidentally save him.

The four mercenaries want to move on, but when Clover pleads for protection, they offer it to him at a price. In the beginning, the arrangement is all kinds of shady, but as he gets to know the four men who’ve taken him on a wild ride, his developing feelings might become as dangerous as the elusive buyer.

But can a relationship with four such different men even work? Men who kill for a living? Men so full of contradictions?

Tank. The massive ex-soldier eager to be Clover’s Daddy.
Pyro. Wild, tattooed, with a filthy mouth and an itch for violence.
Boar. Ginger, bearded, a big teddy bear who can turn into a grizzly.
Drake. Dark and dangerous, with a tongue as sharp as his knives.

Can these men provide him with the love and security he craves? Or has Clover made the worst mistake of his life?

OMG, that was intense!!! A seriously thrilling ride!

I’ll preface this review by saying I did try to read this book back when it was released and just couldn’t quite get into it. It’s AMAZING what audio can do for a book. When I read the story it felt was very dark and dubious and I admittedly didn’t like how some of the characters were coming across in my head (this is no reflection on the authors, it’s just how my brain interpreted what I was reading). But Wyatt’s reading is FANTASTIC and he is able to add just the right inflections on the characters that they don’t seem so dubious and his rendition completely drew me into the story and I’m SO glad he did because it is totally awesome!!

The story is an amazingly complex, and lusty adventure, with danger, passion and new emotions for all involved throughout. There is just so much passion and steam, the pages were definitely set on fire!!!!

I loved Clover! So unique, special, sweet, and innocent in some ways but ridiculously strong in others. He has a big heart and completely endeared me to him! I loved the passion and ‘lack’ of inhibitions he has around sex and his desire to keep himself safe.

I loved all the guys (eventually) and they each brought their own personality and uniqueness to the table. I felt they all complimented each other but were all so uniquely different you can’t compare each of them. I feel this is an amazing feat with so many bold and dominant characters in one book! Kat and Ange have created such a well-rounded book, full of passion, danger, suspense, curiosity, and so much heat! I think this was a fantastic start to the trilogy and I’m so very glad I gave the audio (and the book) a second chance! It’s AWESOME!!

Their Obsession, Book 2

51gJSXQC-NL

Length: 70,000 words
Audio Length: 6 hours and 47 minutes

— Loved. Protected. Shattered. —

Clover has found love with not one man, but four. He never imagined such a relationship could work, let alone that he’d be at the center of it, but a year later, his bond with the four mercenaries is stronger than ever.

Each man in Clover’s life completes him in a whole different way. Where Drake teaches him shibari, Boar always showers him with cuddles. Where Tank is strict and protective, Pyro takes Clover on wild adventures.

To truly become a part of the mercenary crew, Clover chose to train under the guidance of his men. He’s itching for action to prove to himself and to others that he can handle the toughest jobs.

But through violence and mayhem, Clover will be tried in ways he never wished for. Old enemies resurface, bonds are tested, and one wrong move can mean death.

🌟🌟🌟🌟 4.75 stars
🔥🔥🔥 Heat Level: 3.5 (dubious content, violence and a hell of a cliffhanger!)
🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧 Narration: 5

OM*G! Insane, Intense, Intriguing and a lethal cliffhanger to boot!

This book sort of carried on from bok one in terms of the characters and a surprise continuation of the dangers from book one.

I loved seeing how all the characters have adapted to their new normal and adapted to Clover’s presence. I feel this book contained a lot of growth and eventuated in a lot more backstory to some of the Mercenaries, especially the mysterious Drake.

I felt this book was more graphically (and sexually, be warned) violent than book one and contains some very dark, dubious and serious issues. I feel Kat and Ange approached all these events really well and didn’t shy away from the truth and harsh realities of this dark and dangerous world. While there are some very challenging scenes in this book I felt it fits perfectly within the story and I am interested to see the repercussions, reality, and truths of what will happen to ALL these characters next.

This is as insense and suspenseful listen I COULD NOT PUT DOWN and with it ending on aa disastrous cliffhanger I was so glad to have book three ready to go and jumped straight in!

Their Property, Book 3

51s5qNu6+WL

Length: 75,000 words
Audio Length: 7 hours and 14 minutes

— Bruised not broken. Loved. Always. —

Clover’s life was perfect a year ago. He’d found four men to love, each essential to making him whole. Each one of them tough in their own way, part of a crew of mercenaries living on the wrong side of the law.

Tank was his loving Daddy, Pyro the wild one always pulling him into mischief, Boar taught him how to cook, and Drake showed him how to use knives in a wholly different fashion.

All Clover wanted was to finally be an equal in the group. So he trained, he pushed, and risked, but when real danger stared him in the face, he broke like a twig.

Now, with one of his lovers taken, Clover can’t find a way back to his former self. Each of the relationships they’d so meticulously built is fractured, and might never be the same.

If their group is to ever be whole again, Clover needs to find the courage he’s lost, but that means facing the monster who scarred him, and truths none of his men want to confront.

A hard road back together, but so worth it!!!!

Following on from the nail-biting cliffhanger ending of book two we are given a look at what is left behind. It was so hard to see all these guys hurting in various ways and even though the book starts from 4 months later the pain, grief, and hurt are all still there.

This book is a fight to find and save Boar as it is now known that, he was the glue holding everyone together, and without him, everything is falling apart. With a missing member to find everyone is struggling with their new reality. Drake’s gone rogue and wallowing in guilt, Pyro’s dived down a self-destructive, explosive and manic path that even Clover can’t seem to pull him back from. That leaves Tank to try and hold it together and keep Clover safe and sane. It’s a hard feat, for Tank as he too is struggling, as is Clover.

This story spirals into hopelessness and defeat, then back to surprise, danger and finally triumph. It’s an insane whirlwind that had me riveted to the page. I really loved the thrill and suspense within the story and the slow healing that everyone had to endure. I was somewhat surprised by the “final battle” which was epically awesome and so fitting for the growth of each and every one of these guys. And of course, there is an exceptional amount of heat and a somewhat unique happy ending (thanks to the epilogue)!!!

Such a rollercoaster of a series. I loved every thrilling dark moment!!!
