A Protective Biker And The Love Of His Life.
Running Hot is #02 in the Hell Ryders MC Series
by J.L. Sheppard.
Dawson McBride narrates.
HEA with No cliffhangers!
This could probably be read as a standalone, but why would you?
It’s always, more fun in order! 😘
Length: 10 hrs and 23 mins
Content Advisory: There is sex, dirty talk, and cussing.
And as Cuss points out himself, “They are bikers”
OW/OM drama possible. (see below)
Motorcycles + Hot Alpha Male + Unrequited Love
Running Hot is the second in this MC Romance series, however, it technically starts many years before and carries through events of book #01. Cuss and Tiff have been skirting around their attraction for one another since they met in grade school. There are many situations and circumstances that bring them together as well as push them apart. Both have the courage to challenge the roles society dictates, but lack confidence to believe in their self worth.
They are walking, talking oxymorons!
One still might find issue with the other man/women drama, even taking all these factors into account. . I found it to be more a part of the plot that carries the story forward rather than a blight on their character, but all might not agree.
Thomas “Cuss” Layne grew up on the proverbial Opposite Side of the Tracks. He knew the heroine was his the moment he first sees her, and makes it his mission to always watch out for her, despite feeling unworthy. He even does jail time over it.
Tiffany “Tiff” Hamilton was several grades below Cuss, and from a family of social climbers who put money and status above all else. Going as far as to turn a blind eye to attempted rape because the male in question was from a family of influence in their superficial lives. These same poor excuses for parents don’t have a problem calling on Cuss to be their muscle to get Tiff out of difficult situations. Only to turn around and practically spit on him as less than and unworthy of their presence. They disgusted me, and make me nauseous just mentioning them!
There is a lot of action outside the two main characters relationship, as you get pre-book one drama, the drama of book one, the things that go down in this book, plus a lot of set-up for book 3. There is still a lot of ups and downs angst for those that like the feels roller coasters. The constant poor or sheer lack of communication was a bit much for me, but to each their own. I loved Cuss in the first one, so I think I was just expecting more from him. There are currently still 2 more Hell Ryders stories out in audio to go, Dodge and Ripper. I look forward to the listens yet to come. I still really want to hear a Ty and Tina book. 🤞
J.L. Sheppard writes a good M.C. story. The secondary characters are the best.

This is my first listen by Dawson McBride. His gravely voice really works for a gritty M.C. series.
I listened @ 1.15 speed.
Original speed seemed too slow to me. Don’t be afraid to experiment.

Lots More Feels Than The Last
How to Handle a Heartbreaker is #02 in the McCauley Brothers Series by Marie Harte.
Anne Gray narrates.
HEA with a continuing story line.
I recommend reading these in order, because if you listen to one out of order, you will want to go back and start from the beginning anyway. There are 4 brothers, 3 neighbors, and a bonus heroine with tattoos. They are all so intertwined that its practically impossible to separate them.
Length: 10 hrs and 38 mins
Steam factor on this one is , including lots of dirty talk and sexting! And despite efforts to not curse in front of the kid, there is still lots of cursing. 🤷
At the time of this posting, this Audiobook is currently available as part of Audible Escape.
This is #2 in the series, and we finally get our introduction to the mystery heroine, Del. Now that everyone is present, we get to dive in to Flynn’s “honorary” twin, Brody!
There are lots of feels in this one for those that crave it. If you started with book #1 then you should be expecting it, this is Brody’s story. Even though they practically raised him, he is not a McCauley by blood. I knew there was an unhappy story in his past coming and boy did it hit me right there.
And if that’s not enough for you, they threw in some bonus feels for good measure!
The Hero and Heroine of this story, Brody (Singer) McCauley and Abby Dunn met in book one and have both had an interest in the other since the beginning . Abby likes to ease drop on the boys while they play poker for her “research“ and Brody likes to make sure the window is open while they play so he can drop hints to the ears he knows are listening. These 2 have a lot more in common than they realize. They both hide the truth of who they truly are, fearing the judgment and shame. I have to stop there and let the details of it unfold for you as intended. ….Sorry.
Now just because there are more heart strings pulled than normal doesn’t mean it skimped on the heat. No sir! It was super steamy, as Abby needed to do a lot of “research“😉, and Brody was more than happy to work with her on that project.
Throughout the book, it is hinted that all is not harmonious in the McCauley family. I was hoping it was just discontent over an empty nest, but sadly I don’t think that is going to be the case. ☹ The epilogue leads one to believe we will get the answers in the next book. We also get a hint of what’s to come with Vanessa and Cameron.
➖ Mutt & Colin still steal the show! ➖
There are many outlets where you can find this title at so you will have a lot of options.
Marie Harte’s characters still entertain. She could of eased up on the feels. I still want to listen to the rest of the series.

Anne Gray’s voice was pleasant and flowed well. Helps to have the ebook if you are struggling with “who’s talking” in the larger scenes. You can find it through your local library for free.
The recording was exactly as it should be. Pacing/timing was accurate. No background noises. Sound levels were correct with no need for constant volume changes.
