4.5 Stars

This is my second time listening to this series, and I cannot tell you how convenient it is not to have to switch between books. It definitely makes it easier to binge listen!

In this box set, we have 5 couples—all alphas in their own way, and all macho for sure. It definitely helps in their line of work, as the overall story arc plays through the background of each book. That said, each couple reaches their HEA by the end of their book.

These stories are all highly entertaining, often funny and irreverent, with a great set of men that are easy to fall for. While all are very take-charge kind of guys, they all have their unique qualities and talents. They work well together.

I thoroughly enjoy this series it’s one of my favorites, and I find myself grinning every time it comes up somewhere on Facebook. This series leaves a lasting impression and will have you dying to listen to it again.

Aiden Snow KILLED the narration of these stories. He was absolutely perfect to bring these men to life through his captivating voice. His range is incredible, too, as is his ability to stay in character and keep the voices consistent from book to book. That is very important because randomly giving a character a different voice, in another book, can be very jarring. No worries, as that doesn’t happen here. He is consistent, and his voice is like honey to my ears.


4.5 Stars!

What’s better than one Nothing Special audiobook? Well, what about 5 action-packed stories in one over 50-hr audiobook? If you’re a fan of the series or new to it, this is definitely an audiobook you can’t miss out on. *-*

From God & Day to Steele & Tech, passing through Syn & Furious, Rux & Green and Michaels & Judge, and the bonus chapters, you’ll get 5 fast-paced, very steamy stories, with Alpha men MCs like Ms. Via likes to share with us. I won’t say they’re perfect, but they are very entertaining and each story showcases how talented AE Via is at writing action and making her stories believable.

Aiden Snow does a fantastic job with the narration and bringing these men to life. His voice is just perfect to show off how manly these guys are and he really brought the books to a whole other level. Definitely recommendable!
