    Julian Nash should be excited: he’s just earned a huge promotion at work and is going out to celebrate. But his happiness fades when he discovers his date cheating on him an hour before. Suddenly alone when everyone knows he’s supposed to have a plus one, Julian is set for a long night until longtime acquaintance Ryan Dean bails him out of the embarrassing situation.

    Spyder Lee is a happy man who lives in San Francisco and owns a tattoo shop. One night an angry demon tries to bite his head off before he's saved by a stranger. The demon infected Spyder with something awful - the truth. He can suddenly see the world as it really is: full of angels and demons and monsters and monster-hunters. A world full of black magic and mysteries. These are the Dominions, parallel worlds full of wonder, beauty, and horror

    Story

    Richard Kadrey has an impressive imagination, and his worlds are very well thought out.
    A tattooed man, and a blind demon hunter team up to take a book back from hell, and well all hell breaks loose. Once you get past the strangeness of the first chapter (only 8:44 minutes) the story unfolds nicely. Our hero, his best friend, and a princess from another dimension/world walk willingly into hell, just for our pleasure.

    Somewhere in the cobwebbed cellar of the decrepit antebellum mansion known as Ballineen are the legendary Lee bottles - and Austin Gillespie is there to find them. The last thing on his mind is hot and heavy romance with handsome bad boy Jeff Brady. But Jeff has other ideas and, after one intoxicating night, so does Austin. The only problem is they have different ideas.

    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.

    Unlike a previous reviewer, I did not feel that Syren Rua sounded like Hannibal Lector. Syren is a complicated character, and I feel that Renard Pasquale did a great job of bringing him to life. Some parts of the story were a little hard to take, but you cheer for Syren in the end. I liked the story and the narration.

    Gun runner Pablo Castillo has cemented his reputation in the gun trade as callous and cold-hearted. Personal feelings no longer matter, not with everyone out to make him a sacrifice on their way to the top. He remains untouchable, until a meeting with a rival gang leader and a new deal brings him face-to-face with temptation. Dev is the right hand to a sadistic bastard out for blood and glory. He hides his true feelings of distaste for his boss, not the least of his many secrets.

    After the abysmal character of Gabe in book 1, I was somewhat hesitant to get the rest of the series, but Sinner. Savior redeemed the series for me. Pablo & Shane are a great pairing. And Renard Pasquale does an amazing job of bringing the characters to life.

    Detective Gabriel Ashby has never looked twice at another man, yet the criminal across from him, the man he's interrogating, isn't like any other. Gabe can't deal with the sudden, intense need he has for one of NYPD's Most Wanted. Everyone close to Angelo Pagan ends up dead, with the smug gang leader standing amid the rubble. Gabe would love nothing more than to bust Angelo's ass and lock him up. So why is he seeing the bastard in his dreams at night? Angelo Pagan knows attraction to Gabe is suicide.

    Would you listen to Love the Sinner again? Why?

    No - really could not get behind Gabe being such a wishy washy, double standards, over reacting a**.


    Would you recommend Love the Sinner to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the series, but not the first book.


    Have you listened to any of Renard Pasquale’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Renard Pasquale's performance for this and all the rest of the series is outstanding!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Angel's first confrontation with his Uncle


    Any additional comments?

    Stick with it the books get better

    The third novel in the Adrien English series finds the "ill-starred and bookish" mystery writer and bookseller battling demons - maybe literally. After bookstore clerk Angus flees following terrifying death threats, Adrien must contend with a mysterious Satanic cult, a hot and handsome university professor, and his on-again/off-again relationship with closeted LAPD Homicide Detective Jake Riordan. And oh yes, murder...

    Curses, Satanists, dead bodies, marriages and a pregnancy. Just about everything but the kitchen sink happens to Adrien this go-around.

    Not my favorite of the Adrien English series, but every book is a great read/listen. You cannot go wrong with Josh Lanyon.

    Suffering from writer's block and frustrated with his tentative relationship with hot but closeted LAPD Homicide Detective Jake Riordan, gay bookseller and mystery writer Adrien English travels to northern California where he finds a body in his front drive. By the time the sheriffs arrive the body has disappeared, and Adrien once again finds himself playing amateur sleuth. But when the game turns deadly, Adrien turns to Jake. Jake may be confused about some things, but keeping his lover alive is not one of them - no matter what the cost.

    Story

    Can a change of venue stop a case of writers block? Adrien sure hopes so, but the first thing that greets him at his ranch is a dead body, that then disappears. The local police think he's a over excitable fellow, there are strangers on his land, saying that he gave them permission to dig there, his property caretaker is nowhere to be found, there is cannabis growing in his hills, and stories of ancient guardians seeking vengeance. After an accident finds him waking up in the hospital, Jake's there to help him uncover the truth and get to the bottom of it all. But who can write with all these distractions?

    Someone's out to get Los Angeles bookseller Adrien English. His best friend has been viciously murdered, now he's getting weird phone calls and sinister gifts from a mysterious "admirer." The cops think he's trying to divert suspicion from himself - with the exception of sexy and homophobic homicide detective Jake Riordan. Is Riordan really such a great detective - or does he have a few secrets of his own? Is his offer to help Adrien on the level or is he out to nail his favorite suspect - to the wall?

    In this alternate reality, for certain people, books can tell the secrets of who has read, owned, and written them. Collin Bliss is one of the people who knows what books have to say. As a book hunter, he expects to have a year of field work in England when he accepts an exchange position with the Museum of the Literary Occult. Unfortunately, he's stuck behind a desk all day. Given the chance to use his talent, he takes a side job that the Museum would rather he didn't. Septimus Marx is challenged with stopping Collin from finding the book he seeks, by means fair or foul. Can love find it's way, can events be changed so that the world doesn't end?
    .....................Of course, but it's a close thing.

    Thanks to an elderly spinster sleuth and her ingenious cat, Christopher Holmes has enjoyed a celebrated career as a bestselling mystery writer. Until now. Sales are down and his new editor is allergic to geriatric gumshoes. On the advice of his agent, he reinvents his fortyish, frumpy, recently dumped self into the sleek, sexy image of a literary lion, and heads for a Northern California writers conference to try and resurrect his career.

    Story

    Kit Holmes is a writer stuck in a rut, and being put out to pasture by his publishing house, while XJ Moriarity is a best selling writer on the uphill climb to fame, they meet (again) at a writers retreat in the back woods of California. Unfortunately for Kit, he stumbles upon a dead body before he even checks in. All eyes turn on him, and the body count rises.

    When I first read this book, I did not like Kit. His was the only lead character from Josh Lanyon that I didn't find charming. All that has changed now that I have heard Kevin R. Free narrate him. What in reading seemed to me as whining, comes across as acerbic and self-depreciating (as Josh intended) when spoken.
