Let me start out by saying the only reason I got this book was b/c Paul Morey was the narrator. However, I didn't realize this was Book 2 in the 3 book series. Especially since Book 1 is not on Audible. I love Paul's narration, so that was 5 stars. However, the story was a little weak and not as engaging as I like; I didn't really feel a connection to the couple. It also didn't help that I'm not into Leather and Lace, which is a big part of the relationship btwn the MCs. I didn't really get that from the description. There is no BDSM, but big men in lace underwear and cross dressing is really not my thing. There were also small unrealistic things like a MC who lives in San Francisco but is scared to death of earthquakes. And b/c I live in Chicago, I was sensitive to some inaccuracies in the story about Chicago. I didn't read the 1st book, which I would like to have read before this one b/c that couple (Clark & Jody) have a large influence on this story. There is a 3rd book that looks like it is a continuation of this story; and probably Clark and Jody's. Overall, it was OK if you can get past the lace panties.
The best thing about this book, aside from the narrator, it the continuation of Caine and Macklin's story from book one. Although Chris and Jesse's story is sweet and worth a listen, I really enjoyed seeing the MC from Book 1 continue their journey. I'd even say it is as prevalent as the MC in this book. Again the narrator does a great job. Worth a credit. But now I have to switch to the written book as Books 3 & 4 are not on Audible yet.
Like the first book, this was a confusing listen. I read the first book in this series in written form and had a hard time following it because this author REALLY likes the flashback writing style. It was really annoying in written form. Now imagine that same style in audio form. I took a chance that I could follow this story in audio because I really wanted Peter's story. Bad move. Although the narrator did a good job, I had to concentrate so hard on following the story with all the flashback sequences that I really didn't enjoy it. In addition, the plot was really not very good.
This is a warm and fluffy listen about two men who meet and fall in love during elevator rides. That's it, that's the whole story. No drama, a little angst, but nothing else. If you are looking for a nice light mm romance, get it as a sale purchase. Not worth a credit.
I really enjoyed this book. I think the narrator does a great job and the story is engaging. A transplanted American finds love with a seasoned foreman of a sheep station in the Australian outback. What's not to love? I listened to this in 48 hours, it was that engaging. Definitely worth a credit. On to Book 2.
I really enjoyed this book. It is a nice mm romance with a heavy dose of dragon/ wicked king adventure. Be warned that the ending does not wrap up all plot points, so I presume there is a sequel in the works. I hope so because I would like to find out what happens. That being said, I'm still glad I listened. Worth a credit.
Finally, the long awaited final installment to the Matter of Time series; not counting Parting Shot b/c that is really Aaron's book and can be read as a stand alone. This is the story of a very domestic Sam and Jory, with a splash of Jory's trouble magnet tendencies thrown in of course. The new narrator does a great job, especially with Sam's deep voice. Jory comes off a little more "camp" than the other books, but overall very good narration. I've read this story multiple times, so it was really nice to hear it come to life. This is not something anyone will enjoy as a stand alone book, but if you are a fan of the series, it is a must have.
This was a really great adventure based in the frontier Ohio valley with a mm romance btwn a trapper and an Native American woven in. I wasn't sure what to expect when I bought this but found myself completely drawn in by the adventure, horror, mystery and romance of this book. I think that is primarily because the narrator does an excellent job. But the story is very engaging from the start. This is not a warm and fuzzy read but has some truly horrific violence in it. At the same time it manages to have very realistic and tender romance btwn Cole and Pakim as Cole tries to come to terms with his feelings for Pakim as well as stay alive. There a twist at the end that I didn't see coming. Overall, definitely worth a credit.
This is a fun read with a great narrator. The story is completely unbelievable and simple. Very predictable, but I still enjoyed the ride. The main theme seems to be can two declared (and they declare it over and over) straight cops suddenly have a relationship. What was somewhat annoying was the simplistic execution of this thesis. And the constant theme of "I'm straight" "I'm straight" "No really I'm straight". OK, we get it you were straight before you weren't. The only saving grace is the MC is very sweet and Bryce is a hoot. I don't think I would have like this book in print, but the narrator is fantastic at bringing the characters to life and parts are really funny. Probably worth a credit if you don't expect too much and just go along with the ride.
This was a sweet novella, but I'm not sure why the author choose to give one of the MC's firestarter powers. It really didn't add anything to the story; it would have been just fine without it. The narrator did a good job. Christian and Tanner are a lovely couple, but not a lot of backstory about them. I enjoyed their story, but probably just worth a sale buy, not a credit.
This is by far my favorite of the Arthur/Jeremy books. I officially think Luke Daniels may be the best narrator in the known universe. Not just for this series but for the Iron Druid Chronicles as well. This is the 3rd book in the Arthur/Jeremy books, but according to the author, the fourth book in the series; with Black as Snow as the third. But I didn't read Black as Snow and this book picks up right where Double Bound, the 2nd book, leaves off, so it's confusing. I can tell you, I didn't feel like I missed anything by not reading Black as Snow. This installment was my favorite because it really deals with Arthur and Jeremy's relationship in a tender and unexpected way. The author dives into all kinds of existential ideas and cleverly weaves in Greek and Roman history and mythology. I really enjoyed it and Luke Daniels really just brought it to a whole new level.
