Audiobook Review: The Hunter (Boston Belles, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Hunter by L.J. Shen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars.


I didn’t mean to star in a sex tape, okay?

It was just one of those unexplainable things. Like Stonehenge, Police Academy 2, and morning glory clouds.

It just happened.

Now my ball-busting father is sentencing me to six months of celibacy, sobriety, and morbid boredom under the roof of Boston’s nerdiest girl alive, Sailor Brennan.

The virginal archer is supposed to babysit my ass while I learn to take my place in Royal Pipelines, my family’s oil company.

Little does she know, that’s not the only pipe I’ll be laying…


I didn’t want this gig, okay?

But the deal was too sweet to walk away from.

I needed the public endorsement; Hunter needed a nanny.

Besides, what’s six months in the grand scheme of things?

It’s not like I’m in danger of falling in love with the appallingly gorgeous, charismatic gazillionaire who happens to be one of Boston’s most eligible bachelors.

No. I will remain immune to Hunter Fitzpatrick’s charm.

Even at the cost of losing everything I have.

Even at the cost of burning down his kingdom.

Loved the steam, the supporting characters and the narration!

The setting: Todos Santos, CA; Boston, MA

The Hero(s): Hunter Fitzpatrick – one of the heirs to the fourth richest man in the country and CEO of Royal Pipelines. Hunter is the playboy black sheep of the family. He needs his inheritance since he thinks he is not good at anything or able to make a living for himself. He thinks about sex all the time and often acts like a unruly teenager, though he is in college.

The heroine: Sailor Brennen – good girl, tomboy, daughter of the Mob fixer and Hitman Troy Brennen and his wife Sparrow. Sailor is training for the olympics in Archery and focused on only that.

The Love Story: After a recording of an orgy goes viral online, Hunter’s father threatens to cut him off if he doesn’t toe the line. Toeing the line involves working at his father’s office, going to college and abstaining from sex and alcohol. He had to live with good girl Sailor Brennen while she made sure he was being good for six months.

At first I thought this wasn’t quite as good as some of the L.J. Shen books I have read lately, I thought Hunter was a bit moronic and juvenile. However, as the story went along, I discovered I liked the story more and more. Hunter has a difficult relationship with his family and is constantly put down and shut down by them.

I found myself feeling for him and wanting to smack his father, brother and even mother upside the head. I cheered when Sailor spoke up for him and I thought the romance was terrific and super steamy. Hunter has a filthy mouth and quick wit.

As for the narration, it was absolutely terrific! The narrators Virginia Rose and Jason Clarke were both terrific. Jason Clarke had a beautifully deep voice which is what is needed for a hot muscular Hero. I think there was either a second male narrator for Hunter’s brother Cillian (Kill from “The Villain”). Virginia Rose did the female voice with the Boston Accent perfectly. I was so pleased.
