I have a problem with this

Their are problems I have with this book, there are Inconsistencies that make certain things wrong. 1st off I don't have a problem with overcoming the traumatic events like what happened to his lion wife I do however find it strange that she allowed him to be sexually assaulted in his sleep and also Participated in the action. After she had gone through being someone's plaything for a year I would think she wouldn't allow that to happen to the man who saved her loved and guided her through the trauma that she's was forced to endure. Simply to Write this off as as just sexy fun and not that serious to a person like Max Who doesn't let anyone do anything he doesn't like or agree with regardless of who they are kind of minimalizes his character.

Making Valencia's character unbothered and agreeable to the act of letting her man be raped in his sleep by women who weren't apart of his family and even participating in the act makes what she went through seem more or less meaningless.There are certainly ways to handle sex scenes with characters but this wasn't the way to do it.

Terrible narration

Male voices I mostly could tolerate, but female voices sound like helium and alcohol were being used by the narrator.
I could only listen to it a 1/3 of the way thru before it became to unbearable
I actually enjoyed the book so went back reread it instead of listening to anymore

So so

The female narrator’s voices aren’t the greatest. Male narrator is good.

The writing is not my favorite of Xander’s. The idea is good but the execution isn’t as good as his later books.

Female Narrator ruined a great book

I’ve read all of Xander Jades books and I’ve got all the audiobooks and this is by far the WORSE Narration I’ve heard next to Marcus Jahn… Katie Hutch ruined the whole book.. I’d be mad if I had to pay a voice actress for this cause wow who can listen to this…

Jack did okay but even at times he even gets all tinny and overly complicated the voices… come on now this was the worse Audiobook narration I’ve ever heard and I have 1000 books in my library…

Xander Jade I’d say get a new Narrative team on this one, Jack was fine but my gosh Katie was a nightmare, ANY I MEAN ANY female VA could have did better, heck Jack could have done her part better.

This ruined my excitement for this series and if she’s still VA in the next one I’ll not be buying the audiobook

Looking forward to next

Great start to a new adventure
Female narrator was only down fall to many female characters for her to try and change her voice for
Kinda slow start but didn’t take long to make it interesting
Going to listen to it again after I got it done

good book but had a problem

I like the book I like the cast but you read it once the seen were max was use while in coma he should a been more upset about it and I agree with one comment where vic should of not let it happen at all because she went through something like that and it scarred her and then she and the rest of the girls are going to do that to me there no love if vic an char really car for him the would of thought about his health and made not let him be alone you do go near a ware mate when there are down and can find for there self so vic would have been guarding him and making sure he got better an one last redundance is it one the to wake your partner up with sex and they are ware
but is not when the In a coma and mack it should of been a big argument about it he should of chew them out

Not this authors best work.

First, I have enjoyed authors previous series but this one unfortunately fell short. I don’t feel this books world building and MCs were thought out as much as other titles. I don’t understand why authors continue to put in words, titles and names into worlds that are not transferable from ours unless MC is transported there from ours or to a different time. Even then, it should be done carefully. If someone is writing about a totally different world, the characters shouldn’t know what a virgin is. Or in the case of this book, the MC calls his pet bear Hercules! Why would a Roman hero name be in this world. Also things just happened at to quick of a pace. Dude had had like 20 chicks at the end. In the end I could say that the story was ok. But the nail in the coffin, which happens with audio, is the author didn’t select the narrators carefully. The narrators really dropped the ball and were not the best choice for this book.

A good book

This is a good book with some great characters and a interesting story with great world building. The voices are ok but the female narrator has some voices the sounds like ash from Pokémon or and old women but a lot of the voices are great it’s just a few that are annoying. other than that that the book is great and the narration too.
Overall 9/10

Did not like this one

the story was good but I get the feeling this will head to the XXX rating fast

The female narrator’s voices aren’t the greatest. Male narrator is good.
