I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Kathryn Kelly. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
Megan 'Meggie' Foy Caldwell is finally getting everything she’s dreamed of, a child, a husband, and family (of bikers) that would truly do anything for her. Her life is finally on the right track. When Meggie asks her husband, Christopher 'Outlaw' Caldwell, MC President of the Death Dwellers’, for a church wedding, he agrees because keeping his new found love happy is everything to him.
But when a ghost from the past rolls into town and targets Outlaw Caldwell and his family, it forces him to make decisions that could cost them their happily ever after. Threatening their newfound peace, will Meggie and Outlaw’s love conquer all, or will they both fall back into their destructive patterns that could tear their lives a part?
Kathryn Kelly is living her dream and writing books. She's always been an avid reader and still devours books in her spare time. She also enjoys football, socializing, music, eating, and jokes. In her head, she's the ultimate biker babe. In reality, she's an ordinary girl-next-door and a native New Orleanian. Since the release of Misled in December 2013, she’s been living her dream of writing books. In August 2015, her life took a dramatic turn with the diagnosis of Stage 2B HER2 Positive Breast Cancer. She underwent a double mastectomy, lymph node removal, and breast reconstruction in February 2016. The support of her family, friends, and fans helped her to stay strong and keep her head up. #F*ckCancer became her rallying cry. Now located in the Houston area, she is once again cancer free. Her hair is growing back and her nails are returning to normal. Currently, she is plotting her next book.
Samuel Valor is a voice performance artist and narrator. He hails from Southern California where he spends his time writing, recording, and playing music. He has voiced a wide variety of books and commercials, from Shakespeare to mustard to romance, whatever needs that extra bit of masculine energy to spice it up. He has a four octave range, which allows for a wide variety of voices and sounds.
This was a great follow up to the first book in the Death Dwellers' series. I was glad to see that voice actor Samuel Valor continues to narrate. I got used to him as Christopher because the tone he uses helps me to picture what the head of the Death Dwellers may look like. Mr. Valor's performance brings the author's words to life. At times I still want to laugh when he does a female voice but had to think of this as being told from Christopher's point of view and then the giggles would disappear.
Ms. Kelly has written a book that I prefer to have in audio form. It just adds to the experience of what the Death Dwellers are all about. There's no way that you can't tell what type of MC these men are and what they do for their women. It's a story without sound effects which in this case was fine by me. When warranted, I had no trouble coming up with those all by myself. One thing that you can't get away from is all the "F" words that get used here - just one indication as to the type of men make up the Death Dwellers. An audio version of this book brings more of a reality to the written word.
If you don't mind men that are very graphic as to what they do, what they like, who swear all the time, and bring new meaning to "taking care of business" than you may want to check this book out. My only recommendation is that you read, or listen to, Misled first. If you don't it would be like skipping the beginning and starting at the middle of a book. This means to get the most out of the Death Dwellers' MC you must start at the beginning.
The first story was sad and this was more violent. With this one you see how much Christopher cares for Megan. But you will also see how much the MC filters into their life. I did start to cringe with all the "F" words that got thrown around. The thing is that everyone does it. It's hard to walk around anywhere without hearing someone constantly using it. And if you can get past that than this will be an enjoyable tale. Just like the first book, I feel that our author and our narrator make a great combination. I can't wait to listen to Misunderstood - I'm addicted to this series, Ms. Kelly, and Mr. Valor.
