Great set of stories and the perfect narrator. Josh is a wonderful writer, he is on my immediate purchase list of authors, and now that he has the rights to most of his stories he is making sure that his characters come to life with the right voice(s) Alexander J. Masters is amazing. Don't waste your money on "I Spy something Bloody" buy the complete set with "In From the Cold"
Austin has a job he loves, and a chance to verify the existence of Lee wine, that would set his career for life, but death has a way of derailing his plans, and love seems to crawl into his heart by accident.
As I said in the headline - this story is my all around favorite JL book. All his books are exceptional, but this one touches me deeply - and I really can't tell you exactly why.
Since this book came out it has been 2nd only to Chase in Shadows as my favorite Amy Lane story. Nick J Russo has hit the mark with his narration of Ace and Sonny.
What will a man do for love? If that man is Jasper "Ace" Atchison he'll do what ever is needed.
I found this romance one of the better m/m offerings this year. The two main characters were well-differentiated and rather believable, and the supporting cast was interesting and believable. I also enjoyed the fact that the angts delaying the romance, based in anger-management and self-esteem issues, was credibly portrayed. I found the therapy sessions well-written and the character's slow self-awareness well laid out. The setting, somewhat mundane and working class, was also a welcome break from the jet-set model meets millionaire trope that seems so common to romance novels these days.
The novel begs for a sequel (not that it ends on a cliff-hanger) because there are some issues left unresolved, in particular familial relationships to work through.
If possible, I would have given 4.5 stars. The audio performance was also quite good and did honour to the quality of the written material.
