    Amazing! First let me say...if ur a m/m Romance fan and u don't know Mary Calmes...well shame on u!

    This is book 7 of the Matter of Time series...and it was awesome! Books 1-5 is on AUDIBLE so download and enjoy first. Also if u want some back history on Duncan then get Acrobat which is also on here..

    Now we all remember Aaron Sutter, Jory's ex...the billionaire hotel magnet...so Aaron and Duncan meet in book 6 (which is not on here) had a weekend fling and that's where this book begins

    Aaron was so not this alpha in the other books...because he was chasing Jory. In this, Aaron alphaness was subtle...but man when whipped out the money leverage...people started to bow down! Money really can buy anything!

    Duncan was like another version of Sam, after he realised he was in love with Jory. Two alphas coming together but willing to submit to each other! It was great...and the reversible collar was the sweetest thing ever!

    Narration was awesome!

    Total l y worth a buy credit or sale for any m/m Romance fan!

    Life has never been easy for Duncan Stiel. His childhood was the stuff of nightmares, and his day job as an undercover police officer forces him to hide his true self and occasionally lands him in the hospital. So when he finally meets the perfect man, it comes as no surprise that everything falls apart around him. What Duncan doesn't expect is that the hardest hurdle to get over before he can make a life with Aaron Sutter is the one inside himself.

    This book was awesome! M/M romance fans...you are so going to want this book! The story is what is so great, more so than the character development...but wow, there are some great, and extremely well developed characters, right down to the bevey of secondary characters...

    The romance is slow and engaging...not many amex scenes...but unlike most m/m romance books where u literally need the smex at times to drive the story forward...the smex was more so apart of the story and written so well you hardly notice there is smex in this book. Although good scenes, I do wish there were more...but because u learn the background of the characters so well...when they actually get around to smexy time...u understand why they only went as far as they did...made perfect sense!

    I LOVED the background of the 3 not brothers, but brothers! I loved the dialogue in this book....so funny, so serious and so dramatic! Just Awesome...AWESOME!

    Narration was great...first time with this narrator...

    Definitely worth the credit... Remember this is a m/m romance, mystery, suspense book...so if neither of those are ur cup of tea...well skip this and drink cola!

    Austin Glass seems to have it all: a loving fiancée, a future with the FBI, and a healthy-sized trust fund. At least on the surface. He also has a grin and a wisecrack for every situation. But the smile he presents to the world hides a painful past he’s buried too deeply to remember, and his quips mask bitterness and insecurity. Austin has himself and most of the whole world fooled - until he meets a redhead in a pair of bunny slippers.

    This was Cormack and Liam's book; however, it revolved around Simon and Grey so much, I would say this is a mixture book of Cormack and Liam's love story with Simon and Grey as main secondary characters with their own side story going on.

    Simon release that he is also a triad. Also we find out who the bad triad is.... It was a good ending.. Not as much smexing going on...maybe 3 scenes in totally. It you have listen/read Body and Mind Magic...then this one is well worth a listen/read.

    Narration was awesome... so perfect for these characters.

    Blood runs soul-deep. Cormac hasn't been the same since the night the High Moon Pack was attacked. With his magic weakened, he's consumed by a bloodlust he hasn't felt since he first became a vampire. His need to replenish his power makes him a danger to his last remaining family member, and his hunger makes him careless. And that's just the beginning of his troubles. Feeding from pack, beta Liam Benson was supposed to slake his appetite, not leave him craving more.

'Nathan's greatest hits:
  • Landing

    "Lovely"

    Overall

    Jude is a small-town woman running a historical museum in rural Ontario; Sile is a urbanite Dublinner air stewardess who jet-sets the world and keeps the internet within reach of the palm of her hand. When Jude is forced to fly to the UK for family reasons, the passenger beside her passes away in his sleep, and it's Sile who speaks with Jude, and their world changes.

    So much more than a romance, this story is full of interwoven philosophies of loving - does where you are matter if you're in love? How far will you go - or can you go - to keep love alive? Is one person worth the pain of letting all the others go?

    Stirring and gorgeously written, 'Landing' is such a lovely, luscious, story that I was charmed, and just a little crushed out on the characters, whose relationship has the whole world - literally - stacked against it.

  • The Affair of the Porcelain Dog

    "Brilliant book, Phenomenal audio experience!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I'm a lover of audiobooks. Even if I were able to physically read on the bus - I can't, it makes me feel ill - there's still something so incredibly wonderful about the spoken word, and the experience of listening to a great story being told. Usually, I do this to make the time pass by on the long trek to and from work, or when I'm doing something tedious like the laundry or dishes. For "The Affair of the Porcelain Dog" I was instead scurrying around, trying to find any excuse to be able to keep listening, and even wearing my ear-buds while I did routine stuff all the way to the moment I had to open the doors for the day.

    I listened on my break. I listened on my lunch. I listened in the bath. I even got up early on the day of my closing shift so I'd have the two full hours of time I needed to finish the book before my work shift started.

    In short? Jess Faraday's "The Affair of the Porcelain Dog" was the best audiobook experience I've had in years. There are a few sides to that experience.

    One, the writing was so completely engaging that I was happily drawn into the narrative from step one. The setting - a Holmes-era tale in London at it's most coal-caked and financially stratified, "The Affair of the Porcelain Dog" is also Holmes-esque in its execution, pulling you into a mystery from the opening that is as steeped in the time and place and culture as it is in the richly drawn characters. The main voice, Ira Adler, is such a charming character even when he's being selfish or spoiled that I was smitten instantly. An orphan and former rent-boy, Ira is living in luxury now at the beck and call - and bed - of Cain Goddard, who despite his genteel appearance is in fact a crime lord making most of his living off the legal opium trade. Ira, no slouch in the street arts of lock picking, pick pocketing, and capable of thieving with the best of them, is tasked by Goddard to recover the titular piece of artwork, which is both ugly and apparently contains a secret that could ruin Goddard, and bring Ira's comfortable new life to an end. Of course, in a mystery as tightly drawn as this one, there are far more players than that - including the wonderfully written Timothy Lazarus, a giving clinic doctor who is after the same object d'art for his own friend - and Goddard's rival. That Lazarus and Adler have a romantic entanglement in the past just adds to the joy in their interactions.

    Two, the performance. Oh how Philip Battley narrated the heck out of this book! He took Jess Faraday's amazing story and put such an incredible performance behind his reading. Every accent and every tone just burst with verisimilitude. It kills me that the search on his name over on audible only showed one other audiobook. I sincerely hope there's more from him.

    Third - and last - there weren't compromises in the historical setting including gay characters. I rarely read historical gay fiction because so often the gay stuff sort of slides unnoticed among the rest of the tale. Somehow everyone the characters meet are happy and open-minded folks who understand these guys aren't evil (despite religion, law, and everything about the current culture saying they are). That these men are gay is a huge factor to the story, but not in a way that doesn't ring true.

    Okay. I'm moving past reviewing and into gushing. Just trust me on this one. Read it or listen to it - I'm totally going to suggest you listen to it if you're at all an audiobook lover - and rejoice in the fact that there's a sequel, Turnbull House, on its way.

  • Retirement Plan: A Crime Novel

    "Rooting for the "bad guys" has never been so good!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    My lord how I adored this. I listened to it to and fro from work. I must say the reader did an amazing job.

    It's not hard to imagine an older lesbian couple reaching their retirement years and struggling for their income. One is a teacher, the other a retired military nurse, and living on social security and non-existent pensions is a struggle. Pretty much the only thing they own that doesn't have a use - they've sold everything else - is a rifle they have kept for sentimental reasons.

    And though they can't quite pin exactly when - or which of them it was exactly - the decision was made, they did indeed make a decision to make some extra money by offering their services in a growth industry: hired assassination.

    These two wonderful old women are a joy to read - even though they're killers for hide (and at times even because of it). That they have a moral compass in play (albeit one that still allows their murder-for-cash solution to life's problems) is central to how they're still so damned loveable, and as the tale progresses, and their backgrounds, histories, loves and pains come to light, my affection for them only grew.

    Counterpointed with these two lovely ladies is another woman, the detective who is assigned to the case when the bodies start to stack up. Her journey was also intriguing, enjoyable, and emotionally encompassing, and the last few chapters, when things start to grow very taut, had me very nervous for all concerned.

    Can you root for the killers?

    In this case, how couldn't I?

  • Bear, Otter, and the Kid

    "Engrossing from step one."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I have to say - before anything else - that the narrator, Sean Crisden, absolutely nailed this one. Every character has a voice, and those voices built upon the characterization that T.J. Klune gave them, and brought them even more to life.

    Not that they needed any help. Bear, the Kid, and the cast of characters that surround them (especially Anna and Otter, of course) are so richly designed that they live and breathe for the reader (or, in my case, listener.)

    Without giving anything away, the situation is this: At eighteen, Bear is left with guardianship of his younger brother because his mother takes off with her boyfriend. His entire life narrows down to the realization that he needs to take care of his brother - the wonderfully written Kid from the title, who is barely six or so at the time. That his best friend, his best friend's bother (Otter) and his girlfriend Anna are there to help - not that Bear feels he can trust anyone ever again.

    This is the crux of the story, that Bear can't open himself up to accept help without mallet to the head, and that trust for him does not come easily.

    Also - there's the way he feels about his best friend's older brother - Otter - not that he wants to think about that at all.

    T.J. Klune spins a wonderful story here - it's engaging, it's enraging (seriously, Bear is so incredibly infuriating at times, but in a way that makes you keep going), it's sexy, it's emotionally disarming (the Kid is freaking adorable), and - frankly - it's completely engrossing. I was absolutely hooked on this story from step one.

    I'm definitely finding more T.J. Klune.

    One of the best books I've listened to in quite a while. Lots of great story and fantastic ideas. I found it so good that I listened to the whole 11 hour story with only a short break. Kept me interested right to the end, and was able to evoke a very emotional reaction...both by story and the way it was narrated...unusual in today's writings. The narrator, Paul Morey, was superb! I will look for other books with this narrator!
