Audiobook Review: Insolent (Crimson Elite, #4). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Insolent by T.L. Smith

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Love had cut me in so many ways I wondered if my heart could take any more.


But then I saw him.


He was my boss.


A single father.


And to top it off he was insolent.


I didn’t intend to want him, that wasn’t my objective. But somehow I couldn’t say no.


We shouldn’t have worked, but like witchcraft, I was under his spell.


My heart’s been destroyed before, I’m not sure it can handle heartbreak again. 


The bartender and the boss!

The heroine: Olympia (a.k.a. Blue) – she works as a bartender at The Crimson Elite. She comes from an extremely wealthy background but wants to be independent. Her father and brother keep bothering her to go back home, but she likes her life and her job.

The Hero(s): Darby – part owner of The Crimson Elite, a super secret sex club for the rich and famous, he had a one-night stand which ended in a baby after the woman poked holes in the condom without telling him.

The Story: Darby becomes a single father and takes a few weeks off work. When he returns he sees a girl with blue hair behind the bar. He tells her she has to change her hair color and she refuses. He is intrigued by her from the get go. When Darby brings his baby to work and Olympia takes the screaming child from him, immediately calming the child as she sings to him, Darby can’t get enough of her voice.

The narration on this book was done by Rock Engle and Summer Roberts. I liked them both but Rock Engle sounded a bit too laid back at times. I am not sure if that was the character or the way he reads, but I didn’t really like it during the intimate scenes. Though Darby is a dark horse and has a temper. He has no problem doing what he needs to do for the club. If that means giving someone a beat down or even murder. He seems to enjoy it as well.

It was actually quite sexy when Darby beats a guy for scaring and touching Olympia. Even more so later when he gets even angrier just thinking about how the guy touched her. Though I didn’t like how angry he got later in the book when Olympia did something by mistake. He says he had to get away from her because he didn’t know what he might say or do. Though it was part of the story and it furthered the plot.
