Publisher's Summary

Sam Meeko never thought that he’d ever get a superpower, especially one that allows him to smell everything. Everything. With his unconventional power, Sam joins forces with a group of women hellbent on getting to the bottom of a countrywide conspiracy. It’s going to take some thinking outside the box, and when that doesn’t work, Sam and his group might need to tear the walls down.

bad story bad plot all around weird

the author is so busy trying to create a strange harem that he neglects creating basic story and stringing together a basic plot. five chapters in and I have to call it quits here. I kind of want to finish this book but it's just not good. it's almost like the author has never met a human being and doesn't know how people act his characters live in a crazy weird place where people act completely counter to regular people the law is strange beyond belief with very little explanation. the offer does little to help you suspend your disbelief he just throws you into a strange story and assumes that boobs and harems will carry you through.

Sub-par story elevated by excellent performances

Little world building, meandering plot, under-developed characters, and a self-inpressed author fixated with being crass for the sake of it. Apparently, this is a new storyline in an existing world, so a lot of the setting assumes you've read the other stories. I don't know why the characters want to be heroes without imposing why I would want to be a hero on them. After they get their powers they don't register themselves despite that being a central feature of their plight through the story. The author seems to break up chapters early so he can insert a meta/teasing title he thinks is funny and you will know how each of the women is dressed in every scene, but I can't tell you what the male lead looks like other than having black hair. And by the end, no plotline is finished.

Great narration

Superb narration (I'll listen to anything with Andrea parsneau narrating in it.)

Story was okay, decent characters, but no overall story arc.

Note: whomever decided to throw random midi music behind narration at times should be sacked. Drove me crazy trying to listen to the book with looping music behind it.

synopsis does not warn of sex scenes or language

I like the story idea. but the beginning is a bit confusing and when I ran into the unnecessary sex scene that was the end for me.

Erotic fiction in a trenchcoat

The voice cast was excellent. That is the only positive thing I can say about this book. The author clearly wanted to write erotic fiction and has [poorly] hidden it in this book.

Good narration but super unnecessary background music

I liked the story and the narrirators, but often times, and by that I mean A LOT of times random background music would start playing, drowning out the voices. These background music add nothing to the story, and most of them don't even match the mood of the scene.

I would've enjoyed this audiobook a lot more without the music.

Music is distracting

I’m hard of hearing already so when the background music is playing, it’s loud enough to distract from the narration. Maybe turn the volume down a bit? Also, some of the female’s narration was so soft I had to turn up the volume to hear, only to get blasted when the male comes back on.

Otherwise, loved the story and always love Harm’s work!!

Did they actually listen to the effect of the music?

I really enjoyed this book ... except for the music. It was loud and often contrasted with the mood. The narration and voicings were delightful, and the humor was often brilliant. But the music reminded me of the old forgotten days when a cassette tape would get stuck in a car player and those songs would become the soundtrack of your life, playing over and over regardless of your desires. I hope in the sequel that they take cues from any movie, and use the music to enhance the story, rather than smother it.

Pleasantly surprised

At first the music seemed a little cringe, but I got used to it fairly quickly. The overall story was entertaining. Definitely looking forward to the next book.

Boreing

Honestly I got this because I like alot of lit RPG's and some super hero stories, also it was free so worth giving a try. I'm really not enjoying it though! Wich is a shame. The characters are lack-luster and seem very generic. there's also a distinct lack of direction. it feels like a bad p@rn set up. Just disappointed.

An Enjoyable Listen

Another stort from Centralia for Cooper as this ties in with other events from the Centralia world although a little tamer than his harem series House of Dolls their will be quite a few recognisable names and characters that appear in this one.
Some great moments and i liked the idea of how the class system works for the powered and non powered ( exemplar) . The narration is as you would expect another wonderful effort from the SBT team with characters mood music to help give it something extra.

great performance

yet another great performance from an awesome group of narrators, and such a well put together story by Harmon Cooper, the characters soundtracks adds so much depth to the book it is unreal

elevator music

um what's the go with the evaluator music over the top of the audiobook. it's unnecessary and plane annoying. Fire whoever thought that was a good idea.

the book itself was interesting but certainly didn't do much to distinguish itself

Good narration, mediocre story

This is how narration should be done, however not Harmon cooper's best work.

More audible titles need to be narrated by multiple VA/narrators.
