I enjoyed the ride along with their emotional and relational growth. The story arch is perfect, I felt like a part of their family by the end looking toward the future with Crick and Deacon. Oh, yes, sexual encounters were hot and realistic at the same time. Love it, highly recommend it.

The series builds, with a perfect balance of murder/mystery and a tense yet developing gay romance.
Christ Patton is perfect for this series. The voice he gives each character is distinct and feels natural. He makes a perfect Adrien. Chris has a way of bringing out Adrien's sense of humor, sarcasm that I sometimes missed by reading the book too quickly.
I love the trouble finding, situational sleuth, Adrien English. His character has great dry humor, vulnerability, likeability, I feel both sympathetic and irritated by him in turn. Jake, I feel like I can understand his issues, but I still want to kick his arse out of the closet anyhow. As the first book of the series, I know this will all take time, and the series isn't one big HEA, there are plenty of realistic relationship hurdles, breakdowns, and inevitable restarts. Each story is fast paced, at times nail biting, other times very sensual, and often surprising. Nothing really stereotypical here, no chicks with dicks, no fluff, just enjoyable, murder mystery with two MC's that are like fire and gasoline. A must read, and a stand out in the m/m genre.
No, the narration is monotone, no character to voices, painful.
Love the series and the imaginative made up world of Calmes' shifters.
No. I'll stay away from this narrator from now on.
Always to me it's Jin.
Too bad they switched narrators. Sean Crisden was my favorite.
I know some have disagreed with Sean Crisden as choice of narrator, I've heard some of his other books and agree the frog voice is bad, but he uses it minimally and all the rest more than make up for it. I think Sean did a great job and this is another great installation in the series. This book shows yet another side of their growing, developing and changing relationship, taking a look at roles, role playing, and a true need to understand submissive and dominant sides in a relationship, even both within the same person. Each role has it's own power and value. Good one ladies, keep them coming!
Each of the love means series has wonderfully written characters, provocative and evocative storyline, and a great message throughout of acceptance, and understanding. A wonderful passionate escape. You'll fall in love with Andrew Grey's "family"!
I really like the Dark Hunter series, but this cross over was almost painfully bad to listen to. It couldn't even hold my interest through my daily commute. Too juvenile, the characters are also not as developed as her other series. This is definitely no Acheron! Sorry Sherrilyn. I would strongly recommend the Dark Hunter Series however.
