Fabulous Series Start!

Francis “Stitch” Stein had a horrific upbringing. Physically abused, and raised to believe he had no value, he grew into a solitary loner. Now he simply exists, scarred, straddling two worlds, one as a firefighter, the other as a nomad member of motorcycle club. Then one day he meets a very special child named Damien who accepts him without question. One thing leads to another and when he meets Damien’s single mother Grace, his world is forever changed. I absolutely fell in love with these two and with their story. I could not stop listening. Filled with heat and low on angst, this beautiful, fantastically narrated story lays the perfect foundation for what promises to be an outstanding series. Several well defined, delightfully flawed characters are introduced that I look forward to hearing all about in future books. Please, keep them coming!

Behemoth

This is my first book by D. M. Earl. Francis and Grace have an instant attraction to one another but there are extenuating circumstances that cause them to consider whether pursuing a relationship is feasible. It dumbfounded me that someone could treat anyone, let alone a child, in such a depraved manner! It just goes on to show how resilient human beings are!! Gunnar Qualen and Jenna St. Claire are both new narrators to me. Gunnar’s voice was very deep and perfectly fit my idea of what a biker sounds like but he was not expressive enough at times. Jenna also had a soothing voice indicative of a nurturing and compassionate nature. Overall this was a good experience.

Loved it!

WOW! I was not disappointed with this one. A man that looked like Frankenstein and a nurse made for an interesting combination.
Gunnar and Jenna are master narrators. They make the story come alive.

Love this MC group

This MC group is amazing. Shows that the typical stereotype is not always the way. I love how this book shows love comes in all shapes and sizes, diff levels of beauty and brains. The twist and turns in this book kept you guessing who what when where why. Can’t wait to start book 2

Great Story!

This was my first D. M. Earl's book. This is the first book in the Grimm Wolves MC Series. Francis (Stitch) and Grace's story is fast-paced, and entertaining, filled with action, and twists and turns. The MC part is smooth, which is great with me. Francis, a firefighter and a nomad in the Grimm Wolves MC, had a dark past. He is handsome, and protective. Grace, a nurse and a single Mom, is strong, independent, and caring. They are opposites attract. Grace's son Damien is a handsome sweet kid. I liked the instant connection between him and Francis. They both have special abilities which bring them together. The brotherhood in this story is amazing. Gunnar Qualen and Jenna St. Claire did a great job with the narration. Looking forward to listening to the next book in the Series.

A little bit of a different MC

Grace and Francis fit together perfectly and make each other's lives better. I really wish I had enjoyed this book more, but I think it just wasn't for me. I wish there would have been a little more drama to engage me more in the story.

MC with heart

Francis and Grace were not looking for each other but fate had other ideas. Damian has struggled with people's reactions of him due to the burns he suffered as a child. When he stumbles on Francis at the fire hall you would never know that he has many scars for everyone to see. They form an instant bond.
When Grace finds out Francis is in a Motorcycle Club she immediately tries to pull away. Been there done that and it didn't turn out too well for her. Francis doesn't take no for an answer though. He does everything he can to show her they are different.
Will she let him in? Could they have found the best love?

Terrific Story & Narration🎧Intriguing & Heartfelt!

I enjoyed this book immensely, the story is well written with original storylines that are both interesting and intriguing. D.M. Earl is a new to me author and I am impressed with her creative mind and am looking forward to checking out more of her work. This is not an average or ordinary MC Romance novel, it is so much more. This book is Francis M. Stein and Grace Sinclair’s story, Francis is a member of the Grimm Wolves MC, he is a nomad with no ties to a chapter, his road name is Stitch, he is also a fireman. Francis did not have an easy childhood, his mother was abusive and he was left with scars, his first sense of family was with the members of the MC, his second with the members of the Fire Department. He also has special powers, he could read minds and feel what others are feeling. Grace Sinclair is a nurse and mother of a nine year old son, Damien. Damien met Francis while on a tour of the firehouse, most kids were afraid of him because of his scars but not Damien, he was drawn to him from the moment he saw him. Damian had his own scars, he was also gifted with special powers, similar to those of Frances and as time goes on they can share their thoughts with each other without speaking a word. Fate brings Damien’s mother Grace into Frances’ life but she has history with another MC club and wants nothing to do with another one. But the chemistry between them is too strong to deny. This is a great start to a new series, a lot goes on in this book, the story is cleverly plotted and there is never a dull moment. In addition to Francis and Grace’s romance, her past relationship causes drama with a rival MC as well as some suspense, there is also an ongoing storyline with the Grimm Wolves MC which will continue on in the next book. It was tough to hear both their pasts, you can not help but feel for them, especially Francis. But it looks like he found his saving Grace. D.M Earl, thank you for this terrific story and emotional rollercoaster ride.

🎧📚🎧 And for the narration, Gunnar Qualen and Jenna St. Claire are terrific narrators and voice artists. They did a great job bringing the characters to life, giving each their own voice and personality. Their portrayal of the characters was spot on, they projected all the characters emotions into their performance as well as the drama of the story. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧

Thank you Spectrum Audiobooks

Excellent start to new series!

This is my first book from this author but definitely not my last.
I really like that the characters back stories are included. The narration was just ok IMO.
Will give the next book in the series a try. I thought the storyline was different and I really enjoyed that.

Just okay for me!💜

This story didn’t grab me the way I was hoping it would. The storyline had promise but for me it felt off. Like some things didn’t seem to fit. It also felt a little redundant in some areas. I did love the instant connection between the characters, as well as how the timeline was paced. Some times a relationship is rushed in a book so we can hurry on to the sex. Speaking of sex, I thought the sex scenes were pretty hot.
The narration was ok but it was a bit too slow for me so I had to adjust my speed. This is book 1 with an HEA, however this story does continue.

Paranormal abilities, firemen and an MC all in one!

Behemoth, Grimm Wolves MC book 1 by D.M. Earl

Audiobook version narrated by Gunnar Qualen and Jenna St. Claire

This is a love story with a main character who is both a nomad of the Grimm Wolves MC and a fireman as well. It an intriguing start to a series that builds up on all of the characters in the MC and shows the duality of Francis/Stitches life. His horrific past and being tortured by his parents as a child has left him scared both physically and mentally and leaves him afraid of anyone other than his brothers in the MC and those at the fire department he works at. Yet he has a chance meeting with a child Damien, who had strayed from his classmates while they were touring the fire station that Francis works at. These two seem to have a deep connection with one another right off the bat. Could it be they both have scars, could it be something else?

I loved the connection between Francis and Damien, and it seemed almost kismet that they meet and hit it off so well. I’m feeling a deeper connection between these two especially since they both have a special gift that helps move this book along.

I enjoyed the flow of the book. Damien’s mom Grace leaves a thank you gift for Francis after her son comes home full of stories about the huge fireman that he seems to be enamoured with. Damien’s father and Grace’s ex turns out to also be from a MC yet really different than the Grimm Wolves MC. It was neat meeting the members who stand behind Stitch, and who help rally round Stitch in protecting Grace and Damien from her ex’s MC who seem hell bent on disrupting Grace and Damien’s lives. This book leaves room for development of the relationship between Stitch, Damien and his mom Grace; as well as showing us possible direction into the other members lives, so I’m excited to see where the story goes from here. There is a lot still brewing and there are some mysterious twists that are sure to be revealed in future books so I’m excited to hear more from this MC.

I listened to the audiobook version of this book. The narration by both Gunnar and Jenna was engaging. Gunnar’s portrayal of Francis is very realistic and who I heard as his character in my mind. And his parts as the young Damien was amazing too. Jenna as Grace showcased how lovely and fiercely protective she could be with those she loves. Amazing job at bringing this book to life.

Interesting characters

This story started out grabbing my attention but after a while I struggled with it. I liked the characters, especially how Dameon connected with Francis, however this MC was a lot more mild than any I have read/listened to before. The narration was good. 🎧Audiobook Obsession.
