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.
I want to be a Morgan. I love this series. There are only a few books I will buy the ebook and the audio and this is one of them. This is the 3rd book in the series and Connor Morgan's story. And be still my heart, Tristan James' voice!! My god the man could melt a glacier just with his voice. This story is a GFY as until Connor met Forest, he thought he was straight. But he adjusts his thinking with the help of his amazing family. Forest comes from an abusive childhood and was saved by a pot smoking hippy. Now his childhood demons are trying to kill him and Connor is determine to protect him at all costs. Good stuff all around with the trademark Rhys Ford body count.
I love all the MCs in this series, but I seriously want Donal and Bridget to adopt me, I don't care that I'm in my 40s. There seems to be at least one more book in this series and I look forward to it. But I really look forward if Tristan James continues to narrate it. Sooooo worth a credit.
I really enjoyed the first book in this series and thought this third one would be just as good. It is a classic hurt/comfort story. Justin is a young man who has been abused most of his life by his father. The abuse was severe, almost killing him at one point. The reason for the abuse is very simplistically stated as homophobia, but the father's action definitely scream more was at play. Logan is the protector, straight guy that develops a crush on Justin. There is A LOT of angst and the MCs don't get together until well pass the midway point of the book. The basic romance is sweet, but I was very disappointed in the resolution of the father issue and some of Justin's actions.
When I read about an abuse victim in books, usually it leads to some type of growth on the characters part by confronting the abuser or overcoming the demons. I didn't really get that in this book. Without giving spoilers, I will just say I was disappointed about this aspect. Also some of Justin's actions bordered on TSTL. The best part about this book was the narrator. He does a fantastic job, as he did in the first book. It was also great to see the entire Rock Bay gang again playing supporting roles.
This is a great comfort read. Dean is a Special Forces soldier who is forced to take a hardship discharge in order to take care of his niece when his sister unexpectedly dies. He travels to the small town of Glamour, AZ and meets Anthony, the local guidance counselor. One of the best things about this book is Anthony’s family; a big Italian family that loves and supports each other fiercely. It is always great to see that in an mm romance. Dean on the other hand has past demons he is trying to conquer. He was not “out” in the army and has a hard time adjusting to civilian life and his feelings for Anthony; he doesn’t think he is worthy of someone as beautiful and good as Anthony. The narrator does an amazing job. He has great voices and really brings emotions to the characters. There is a little angst and not a lot of drams. Overall, worth a credit.
This was a super cute listen with one of my favorite narrators, who does a great job as usual. It is short, but a great comfort read. Bianca (the kid) is a trip, with a cameo of Gabe from The Boy Who Came In From the Cold; as the MC lives in the same building. A little angsty, but no surprises or drama, just a sweet story of a girl trying to make her daddy happy. Not worth a credit, but great for under $5.00.
I really enjoyed this college age coming out audiobook. It is told from Connor's POV and Connor is painfully shy and socially stunted; sometimes annoyingly so, music student. But this is a book primarily about his journey during his first year of college. He meets Jared, the popular football player, and they begin a love affair in secret. But as we know, nothing stays secret for long and there is fall out and ultimately, growth. The narrator did a wonderful job bringing this book to life. His portrayal of Connor was spot on and he brought a wonderful emotional element. The only negative with this book was the drama with the ex girlfriend; it really seemed out of place for the story. Overall, worth a credit..
This is another winner from Josh Lanyon. This is the first book in a series. It is primarily a ghost story with a underlying budding romance. But I think this is going to be a slow burn romance, similar to the Adrien English series. Both men have demons to tackle and they are not really address (or in Kirk's case even revealed) in this book. But the ghost story is very compelling and I was freaked out a couple of times. The narrator does a great job with all the voices and the inherent creepiness. Can't wait for the next book. Definitely worth a credit.
This is a sweet, comfort read if you don't mind paranoid, insecure geek meets Greek god and just can't accept that he is worthy of attention. On the surface, I love the concept, but not so much in this execution. The best part of this book was the narrator, who is fabulous and really took what I thought was a mediocre story and brought it to a new level. He also took Arthur, a minor character, and stole the story with his interpretation of an overweight drag queen with a heart of gold. Stanley's insecurities became a bit much at about the 50% mark and Roger was just too good. So it was more like a Cinderfella fairy tale than any realistic read. It is fine for what it is.
This is one of my absolute favorite alpha/alpha law enforcement series. Dex is just an amazing character. He is funny, sweet and can certainly kick ass. He is also remarkably sensitive to his family and team mates. Sloane, his love interest and new partner at The Thirds, is a somewhat tortured soul as he lost his former partner/love and is having a hard time recovering when Dex bursts into his life. The banter in this book is my favorite part as Dex has many really witty lines and his verbal war with Ash is priceless. This series has a great cast of characters and at least four couples, both human/Therian and Therian/Therian in future books. The narrator does a great job on all the voices, except Hudson’s English accent; but it doesn’t really matter because it is just a few lines in the book. Definitely worth a credit.
I wish I could like this more. The best thing about it is the narrator, he is great. But the story is really boring and very short. The blurb really is the whole story.
This is a super sweet man with kid love story. It is a love at first sight for the main couple and they go through some trials to get to their HEA; primarily focused on a homophobic, religious relative that doesn't believe gay men should raise children. We get both MCs POV and even a little insight to the grandmother. No real angst, but a little drama and I was rooting for them the whole way. A great comfort read. The narrator does a great job, he really brings the characters to life and has a super sexy voice for Rex. I love the Falcon Sound guys, they are all really great. Worth a credit.
