Wow, I don't know where to start. It is as hard to read as Acheron's; with all the torture and all, but this goes a little foo far. The takes torture for torture sake instead of adding to the story. I almost thought it was therapy of some kind, for who, I'm not sure. It is beyond what Ash had to endure, enough said.
The GOOD part of this book is the relationship btwn Darling and Maris, it is beautiful. And I look forward to continuing it with Maris's book, hopefully. Also, the humor and banter amoung the Sentella members is wonderful, it had me grinning from ear to ear. I liked this book better than Retribution, but not as much as Ash's book. Also, why is this series called The League when really, The League are minor characters at best. Anyway, I would recommend it only if you like the series and want to continue to be a part of the characters' journey. But I would NOT recommend it as a stand alone read.
Maris and Ture's book.
Yes, but it never will be.
This is the 3rd book of the series. However, I read the first book (Cop Out) and I think this book is really the sequel to the first book as it involves Kurt's brother Ian, who makes appearances in Cop Out. I haven't read the 2nd book, but reading the 1st helps with this one. Now the review. I really enjoyed this book and Tristan James as the narrator is just wonderful. Since this also involves a big Irish family, his wonderful brogue makes an appearance. I also like that we get both MCs POV. The relationship between Ian and Rick is a complicated one because of Rick's past. The blurb implies that Ian's "coming out" is a big part of the story, but it really isn't. It is primarily a story of Rick overcoming the "rules" he has imposed on all his relationships and taking a chance with Ian. And the author does a cute little twist at the end so it is not totally predictable. I connected with both MCs and enjoyed their journey to finding love. Worth a credit.
Another winner by Josh Lanyon and Kevin Free. This is a wonderful, spooky short story with a HFN romance. I listened to it in one sitting and was enthralled the whole time. The only bad thing is that it wasn't longer. I would love a sequel as it ends on a twilight zone type ending. Worth a credit.
This is a great listen. I really didn't know what to expect as I have not read any books by this author. But since Paul Morey is one of my favorite narrators, I took a chance. Glad I did. This was a wonderful story of a young man's sacrifice for his family when parents are killed and he is forced to bury his dreams in order to take care of his young brother and sister. The other MC is a great character who is unexpectedly wealthy after being raised in the foster system to two unrelated by blood brothers. The brother's dynamic is fantastic and funny as hell. But their love for each other comes through loud and clear. All these dynamics come together for a great romantic story. Worth a credit.
I'll be honest, I have not enjoyed Cardeno C books in the past. But this is the second book in this series and I really enjoyed. I'm going to have to reevaluate my opinion of this author if they continue to be this good. Other books I've read from this author seem WAY over the top sappy with characters that were TSTL. But the two books I've listened too in this series were not like that. There is insta love to be sure, but it is a shifter book, of course there is. But these characters were funny and endearing. I believe that Charlie David's excellent narration is no small part of why I enjoyed this listen so much. Also, this is a stand alone book, you don't need to have read the first book, although this couple does make an appearance in the first book. This is the book of how they got together. Worth a credit.
The best I can say about this book is I didn't "hate" it and I finished it. First off it is told in the storytelling form where the reader is told most of the info instead of having a POV from one of the MCs. I'm usually OK with that, but it prevents the reader from really identifying with the MCs because they are so arm's length. Second, it really is all over the place and has WAY too many characters with absolutely no or very little backstory on any. It is really just a story about a shifter pack and how it grew. Brian and Luke get together via insta love, as shifter are prone to do, then really nothing else happens. The theme is suppose to be how Luke's (Brian's Mate) became the "heart" of the pack, which is sweet, but a little boring. The narrator does an OK job, not really bad, but nothing special. Not worth a credit, maybe a sale for a sweet comfort read.
This was fine for what it is; a very short basic infill story. It is a sweet story about Len finding love again with Chris after his partner dies. I have now described 90% of the story. It is definitely not worth a credit, but if you are a fan of the series, it is probably worth a sale.
I'm not sure if this is the end of the series, I think so. If so, it ended wonderfully. This is my favorite of the three Dark Horse books. Evan, Jeff and Dan continue to work on their relationship, but the unexpected arrival of Dan's criminal sister brings danger to their family. In addition Jeff's health issue brings the three together and they realize how much they mean to each other. The narrator continues to do a great job.
I really enjoyed this book, more than the first one. This was a very classic mm romance novel, Sometimes this very predictable format can be boring if not done right. There is no high drama; no "bad guy" or major conflict to resolve. This was just a well written romance between "J" and Peter that had to exact right mix of angst, humor and romance, it was wonderful. Also, the narrator did an excellent job.
Let me start out by saying Damon Suede is an absolutely awesome writer. Anyone who can weave into a story that “unicorns are just weaponized ponies” has some kind of paranormal muse whispering in his ear. This book is beautifully written, especially if you are a comic book fan or movie geek. He gives shout outs to, Marvel, DC, and other obscure comic book publishers, as well as, Bruce Campbell, The Tick and other obscure pop cult icons. There is some amazingly detailed background on all things comic, movie and TV geek. On the romance side, the MC get together fairly early in the book, so very little angst and a lot of very hot smex. The story is mainly about their rollercoaster ride of a relationship. Charlie David does a fantastic job as usually in bringing the characters to life and drawing the reader into these characters.
That said, I’m afraid I am NOT that into comics or the movie and TV industry and was kind of bored with it at about hour 8 of the 14 hour narration. Although that stuff is interesting, 14 hours of it gets REALLY old. There is really nothing happening in the story except interesting industry knowledge and the two MCs living their geek dream and trying to communicate with one another. Which is sweet, but again 14 HOURS!! I'm afraid I like a little more drama in my romance books. I would say if you want a really intriguing, well written listen about the comic and movie industries (there is even some gaming stuff) and a just OK romance, it is worth a credit.
I didn't like this one as much as the first book, but I still enjoyed it. This is a "love at first sight" (literally) story of Declan, the local deputy and Lucas. Declan finds Lucas near death as a result of an attack. He is instantly drawn to him and falls pretty fast. What follows is a really sweet story of boy meets boy, boy loves boy, boy loses boy, and HEA. The quintessential romance novel, but well done; not overly sappy, but pretty predictable. We also get a look at Mac and Oliver and some pretty significant occurrences in their life. I really like this narrator, I think he does an excellent job. Good comfort read and worth a credit.
