Hot Head ranks at the very top!
BEST QUOTE/SCENE EVER:
His fingers roamed over Dante, marking his skin with handprints, memorizing it. “This belongs to me. Only me. No one else can have it. Not even you. It’s mine. You’re mine.” <-- Can you just IMAGINE? If that quote doesn’t move you to go get this book, I don’t know what will.
He has a wonderful voice. He brings the story to life with the multiple accents and personalities in the book. Flawless execution.
Griff ALL THE WAY! I love him. I understood him. I want to befriend him.
ONE. OF. THE. BEST. ROMANCE. NOVELS. EVER.
I can't say enough about this book. I know some people out there are intimidated by M/M romance novels, and that's a true shame because this book is utterly phenomenal.
Enter Griff who is a muscle bound, red-haired, fair skinned, firefighter who happens to be in love with his best friend, and fellow firefighter, Dante. They've been best friends forever, yet on 9/11, after searching for him during that horrendous nightmare, Griff realized that he had immense feelings for Dante. But Griff is tortured. Imagine loving your best friend, but being unable to tell him. Imagine that ache, that longing, that fear. Well, Damon Suede has created two amazingly complex characters and allows us readers to see, feel, and become a part of that world. I want to thank him for creating a book focused on an every-day situation, and brought life, heart, raw, and honest feelings that you can relate to. Suede is a highly clever writer who uses words, and imagery to set the scene for even the most unimaginative reader. I can’t say enough about this book. I really can’t. I read it in 24 hours, and had no problem for-going sleep to finish it.
Seriously. I can't get enough of Kit!! His whit and humour kill me. I love how insecure he feels about some things, and how confident he feels in other things. He feels so real to me! The "top/bottom" scene was one of my absolute favs. Our perception of how the world sees us is very relevant, and as usual, Josh Lanyon, frames this scenario oh so well. ( I <3 you Josh Lanyon!) I appreciate Kit's detective abilities, and his knack for solving a good mystery. While JX has a certain appeal, Kit always comes out on top, which is probably why any additional book in the series will be on my " must get" list. Fantastic listen and read. Bravo.
I liked this story because everyone deserves at least one chance to fix a wrong. It took Rory a bit longer than I would have hoped, but in the end we got out HEA. I wish there had been an epilogue though....
I loved this book !! He completes him!! I want more! gimme gimme gimme gimme
I loved this story. I think this is my 5th time listening to it. Im a huge fan of romance, especially during the holidays. Mick's fears were well versed and honest. Fielding was just too darn cute. Anyone who reads/listens to this story and doesn't root for them as a couple just doesn't believe in christmas magic. I was hooked from the beginning, and can honestly admit that I wanted more.
I don't think I have ever laughed so hard in my life. This book was fantastic. I am a sucker for anything funny, throw in a decent plot, and entertaining characters, and I'm hooked. Oh Tom and Frank, I don't know where to begin. I just think they both are utterly adorable. I can't recount the number of memorable moments that lightened my heart, or made me bust a gut. I LOVE FLAWED CHARACTERS. And these two were flawed beyond belief, but in cute, and meaningful ways. Another thing I loved about this book was the idea of comfort... we're always feeling our best when we're comforted by the familiar and such... So when someone who's very UNcomfortable stepping out of their comfort zone, is thrust into an environment WAY beyond his comfort zone, with a jerk named Stanley (I HATE that name. HA) it's bound for some hilarity.
I have to say I wanted more. Thanks John.
I loved Book 3! THANK YOU JORDAN CASTILLO PRICE! I'm really enjoying this series. Vic makes me laugh. However dorky this sounds, I so wish he was a real person that I could befriend. I'm always entertained with how he sees himself vs. how Jacob sees him. I love that Jacob loves him unconditionally. That scene in the hallway... it blows my mind. And I can see how loving someone so much... lets you give them the 'freedom' to do things you would never, ever agree to otherwise. Oh Jacob.
The ending of this book left me happy... that's not always the case when reading/listening to a murder mystery, but I'm in my happy place... all snuggled up. Can't wait for book 4...
I'm always a fan of Cardeno C. I love stories about true mates, so this was a fun treat for me. I really appreciated Mitch's patience. It reminded me of all the little intimacies a couple experiences that don't involve sex. Poor Simon. He'd been through a lot and I think that anyone who experiences such tough life experiences deserves a happy ending.
On a side note:
I'm a bit upset because I didn't realize that Cardeno C. is giving audio books away to certain brand new readers for reviews.Here I am an audible/ amazon loyal member for years, posting reviews, not engaging in piracy, spending my own money to buy ebooks/audios, and providing honest reviews without receiving gifts. This is frustrating me.
The story has been done before, but I always enjoy Cardeno C. writing. Its a cute novella about a pretty, rich, 'bad' boy who did a little too much bad, and of course gets the 'no money until you shape up', and gets sent off to his sister's ex hubby's farm... and we all know what happens. HEA. Of course. It's a fun listen. And less than $5... Plus I have always enjoyed Paul Morley, so it's worth it... enjoy.
Fantastic. I always enjoy Cardeno C's books. This story is no exception.
We start off meeting Shiloh at a rough point in his life. His, luckily failed, suicide attempt leads him to dream about his future self meeting a wonderful man named Travis. Their love comes on hot and heavy and it isn't until he ' wakes up' and sees 'present day' Travis that he realizes the life he could live with Travis by his side.
I loved this story. I have read it many times before, and I was so pleased to see it come to life with Jeff Gelder's voice. I have to admit I cried a couple of times. I feel as though I actually know Shiloh and Travis, and love hearing their 'story' again and again.
It's about hope and receiving the gifts that end up meaning the most to us when we least expect it. I envy their earnest love and assured devotion. And I love thinking that sometimes you just have to wait for that person worthy of you arriving... it whatever form it may be.
Lovely story that I will always cherish. Thanks again Cardeno.
I never thought I would enjoy this series, but I am pleasantly surprised.
I find Vic so very amusing. His inner commentary has me laughing out loud the majority of the time. Gomez Pugh does a great job of portraying a primarily bored, over medicated, wise ass cop. And the accents he puts on for multiple minority characters continues to amuse me. While the 'mystery' isn't very complicated-- I figured out who was involved before the big reveal-- I enjoyed the old gang getting back together-- with the introduction of 'Crash' and his rebel self-- to help Vic.
As a HUGE fan of Jacob, I enjoyed every scene with him. Vic is one lucky man.... and when they finally got their 'bow chicka bow wow' on... I pressed rewind, and listened all over again...
I'm ready for book 3.... BRING IT Castillo Price!!!
