    Would you live a lie to hold onto the one you love? Dean and Jason are best friends, like brothers since boyhood, now architecture students and college roommates. They've always had each other's back, but when one walks in on the other with another man, everything changes. How do you explain to your best friend that he's the one you've always wanted, that until now your life has been a lie?

    Story

    this book was so good. Jason is a gay man who is in love with his childhood friend Dean but he feels wrong for loving him because at an early age he was molested by his priest who told him he was sinful for the feelings he felt for boys, so he plays straight for a while. Dean who is straight doesn't know what his friend went through but he catches him one day with a man, and that just sets him on a confusing emotional roller coaster of jealousy and. curiosity about his own sexuality.
    Dean can come across as a butt hole a lot in this book but then in the same breath he redeems himself by being the rock in Jason's life that he desperately needs. Jason is of course a broken man, so he has lots of weak, vulnerable times in the book.
    I loved the book I could have listened to another 10hrs. I hope there's a book 2 just so I can revisit these characters, I like how Dean tries in vain to resist Jason, and how his love grows so deep for Jason. this book is worth the credit/money, and reread.

    I just woke up from one hell of a night. My body was still tingling all over from the mind-blowing experience of what I went through. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to reflect on that, or even bask in it. I had to attend a demonic shindig and bring an innocent human along with me, most likely for a human sacrifice if what Agent Smith from the Society has told me is true. The problem I'm having is finding a human to bring to the slaughter.

    I enjoyed this book however, I feel like not much really happened it felt like this book should have been apart of one complete book. I love the series so far and learning more about the demon society. as for the narrator he did a decent job it was just a few parts during a sex scene he missed the mark with the emotion, one part would say something like he spoke with a low voice but the narrator would almost yell or say something during an emotional part with no emotion at all it sounded almost condescending, and yes I know the character is frustrated in the book but just listening to his internal dialogue it didn't match.

    This book was great the story was so real, the narration my God I'm not a big fan of Michael pauley but he was so needed for this book. It took me on an emotional rollercoaster. This book opens you up and exposed every emotion. The bittersweet ending was perfect and I know this is one of those books that will stay with me for a long long time.

    Talon Valdez knew when he transformed into an enhanced human, his life and his dreams were finished. Reviled, mistrusted, and often locked away, the enhanced were viewed as monsters, despised by the public, and never trusted to serve in the military or any law enforcement agency. Years later he gets a chance to set up a task force of enhanced to serve in the FBI, but with one proviso: each enhanced must partner with a regular human.

    I loved this unique story. the only downside is it ends too soon there is a second book but who knows when audible is going to put it on here, so I'm going to just buy the actual book. if your going into this thinking it's going to be a bunch of magical dudes getting it on you might be disappointed. this book focuses on introducing us to the characters and world building.

    the book was good, I liked the characters and the time they were given to develop, I really felt connected to them. but if you're going to give this a sizzling on the ratings scale it needs more than a bunch of hand/blow jobs there was like 1 legit sex scene. I've listened to books that were WAY more graphic than this, Nicholas Bella now his books are pretty sizzling, this was just a cute soft love story.

    Story

    Let me first say the only reason I got this book is because I loved the 2nd book in this series loved the narration everything. however, this book was so so bad it seemed like a one sided love story and I know that Will was supposed to be a distant guy and all but it would have helped to have his side of the story told so when he did act like a jerk, we would know his inner dialogue and feelings. Leo was just such a pushover it was frustrating. both of the mc's had no depth and no character development I didn't care for neither one of them.
    This book summarizes everything, like a whole chapter would be dedicated to crap that happened within a week's time and it was boring. what really got me is how are you going to go into so much detail about Felicity or what Leo and his friends had for lunch that day but when he and Will got together it was so short and held so little emotion. The MC'S barely spend any time together in this book, there was literally NO RELATIONSHIP the entire book between them and the end was so terrible they get into an argument.
    I struggled so hard to finish this book, I don't see how anyone liked this book I think rating it anything over 2 stars is too generous. the only thing that got me through was the narrator he had a nice voice but his choppy narration grated on my ears after a while.

    this book was predictable, you have the grumpy guy who is really hurt and wants to be loved and then there's the swooning guy who wants to give the grumpy guy that love he is looking for and then there's the kid that brings them together. Nothing surprised me or stood out, so 2 out of 5 stars for the story.
    the narrator gets a 4 out of 5 stars, only because the voices for the MC'S had little difference, for me at least but I think he did a great job for the other characters voices such as the little kid, even though the voice for her was little annoying at times I think he did great.
    this book was on sale and that's the only reason I got it, but to pay full price for such a bland book...I don't think so, not even a credit is worth it.

    I got this book thinking it was going to be like many of the books I've been listening to recently, (lots of sex some character development ) but this book is great, not only is it a good M/M book but it's a good supernatural book.
    The MC's are 2 broken and different men who have a preconceived idea of one another which makes them adversaries, but deep down they're the same and I like that the author gave them time to realize that, yes there is an instant attraction they have but they're also torn between those feelings and the painful history they share, so it's hard for them to allow themselves to give into those feelings completely. The story outside of the romance is just great and I was equally invested in it.
    The end had me gripping the edge of my seat, bitting my nails, sweating bullets, however you want to put it, if a book has me talking out loud to the characters then I know I got a good book. The narrators were both spot on with their characters they were so believable. I can't wait for the next book. worth every penny.
