I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
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!
Most "DARK' romances, are not usually all that dark... Well not my kinda of dark. There needs to be a level of violence with a dark romance... If you fall in-love with the H/h who is supposed to be the bad guy, in like chapter 2, well that just defeats the purpose of having a villain right..
Anyway, THIS WAS AWESOMENESS!!! A great DARK romance!!!
Our H is a totally mysterious but likeable A-hole for the things he do to the h... I was totally wrapped in the story the entire book.
It got a bit boring during the middle, but actually now that the book is over... the middle really makes sense...because where the h was being held... there was really nothing to do, but what she was doing...sooooooo...Yeah, no action required... (by golly! I think I just figured that out!)
So after the hospital, the book goes from 0.... nah, more like 35mph to 60 in the blink of an eye. I was literally pressing my ear bobs into my eardrums to make sure I heard this and that... I didn't want to miss anything! The action toward the end was that good...but then... right before the ending, the h... OMG! I just wanted to b*slap her....
Yes, by now you will totally love the H, even though you only know a pinky nail much about him,but STILL.... I felt like the h didn't deserve my perfectly badass villain... She totally broke the ultimate rule!!!
Anyway... I loved the ending, serious little girl butterflies.... Awesome job Anna Zaires... Awesome job...
The smex was just so smexy too... Love me some Alpha Man punishment!!!
Narration was not the greatest...but a far far step up from the Liaison books by Zaires on Audible. I actually wish this narrator could go back and re-narrate the Liaison books, because that series is one of my faves, that was ruined by narration... Rae did a decent job with this... Love the H voice... so smexy!
This is a totally Credit or Sale... I prefer not to buy books over 10 bucks unless its a must have... This was more like a very enjoyable have... a definite re-listen, but not necessarily a must have. Although, one could save a credit for a more enticing listen and just buy this because its not that expensive... still under 15 bucks... This book wasn't enticing like you are ready to beat someone if they disturb you...this was however, highly enjoyable... 2pts for Zaires!!
OMG! I need the rest of this series like yesterday! I have never rated a 5-star for part of a series...but Man this was awesome for the way the book started...
Very Very dark romance... just the way I like my darky romance... their seriously has to be some level of violence to be called dark... and boy this did not disappoint... I think...as the thick of the story hasn't even been told...but from how this book started and the main (H) character's personality.... so far.. You know he is one crazy so and so....!
I need more than 2hrs of this story.... Come on Audible... give me more!!!
Narration was great... and for 4 bucks.... why not save a credit...
I was engaged all the way through. Wonderful character creation. Wonderful dialogue. Various conflicts are well done.
An example of fun dialogue: Tucker is this slow talking rich southern man who sleeps with a lot of women. Heroine is not interested. He makes a seductive comment to her. She says “You’re sick.” He replies “I do feel a fever comin’ on.”
I loved the way clues and things came out gradually during the book - like the clue someone saw that led them to discover who tampered with a car. I loved Tucker’s relationship with a teenage boy -- heartwarming.
I recently heard Judith Ivey doing a southern accent that was irritating. Tom Stechschulte (this audiobook narrator) did a wonderful southern accent. And he was soooo sexy as Tucker. Wow. And he did women well - no effeminate gay guy sounds. He did so many different voices well. He’s now one of my favorite narrators.
Genre: romantic mystery suspense
