This is the first audiobook I’ve read that was entirely narrated by a male narrator! It was a much different experience than listening to an audiobook with only a female narrator – I wasn’t expecting that. Brock Thompson did a great job narrating Wicked Ride, especially when it came to the hero’s Irish dialogue. I have some mixed feelings about Wicked Ride, but overall it was a different story than what I was used to with a unique PNR world I’ve become interested in.
Alexandra Monzelle has dedicated her life to being a cop. Her father’s shady past has only made her more determined to live on the right side of the law. A new case pops up involving a deadly drugg called Apollo and Lex wants the drug off the streets. She’ll do whatever it takes to protect her city, and not even the Irish biker with the dangerously good looks and swoon-worthy accent she comes across during the case is going to get in her way.
Kellach Dunne is part of a dangerous MC club, and he’s found himself smack dab in the middle of Lex’s investigation. But there’s more to Kel than meets the eye. It turns out that he’s a witch Realm Enforcer, in the city to stop the Apollo drug himself, and Lex is his mate. She’s skeptical at first, but now that she’s been thrust into his paranormal world, everything she once knew has changed.
Even though the chemistry between them flares up anytime they’re together, Kel and Lex’s relationship does not start smoothly. The two of them go head to head with one another, both of them stubborn and not believing in their mate bond. But soon enough, Kel realizes that he does want Lex, and will do anything he can to protect Lex and make her want to be his mate.
I didn’t particularly understand the relationship that developed between Lex and Kel, since I didn’t really connect with either of them, but I really enjoyed the action in the audiobook, which there was plenty of. There’s a good amount of suspense and action to balance out the weak romance. And again, Brock’s narration was fantastic, and his voice made listening to the story all the better. It’s pretty deep and smooth, and I loved the Irish accent he had for Kel!
It was a little hard for me to choose a rating for the Wicked Ride audiobook, but I’ve decided to do 3 hearts for the story and 4 hearts for the narration, so 3.5 hearts!
