I'll start by saying this is probably a totally bias review, as I have been waiting for this book since Marius was introduced to the series. I am a huge MM romance fan and this didn't disappoint. Marius has been one of my favorite characters in this series, and quite frankly I was losing interest in the series until this book. I did not like Darling's book at all because the violence was over the top in my opinion. And Caillien's book was just OK. Marius and Ture's story has renewed my interest in the series because it reintroduced the family bonds btwn all the characters of series, as well as a nicely told romance. Many of the other characters at least make cameos in the book to support Marius getting his HEA. My only complaint is I think it was too short. And I don't think the death of a minor character was handled very well. I don't think they "mourned" them like I think they should have. The narrator was great, great emotion and humor in his delivery.
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.
This is a great listen from two of my favorites, Mary Calmes and Tristan James -- what a wonderful team. This is sort of a spin off of the Matter of Time series (one of my all time favorites) focusing on the relationship between two of Sam Kage's Deputy US Marshalls, Miro and Ian. They are both alpha males in this GFY romance. Miro is openly gay and Ian is his "straight" partner. Lots of angst and action to lead to a HEA and hopefully more books about this couple. Also, Sam has a role and Jory makes a cameo, which is just great b/c I miss them soooo much. Tristan James is just wonderful as usually. Worth a credit.
This is a really cute GFY short listen about a straight jock falling for a geek. It is really sweet and hot and the narrator does an amazing job. There is some angst on the jock side, but that is pretty much the whole story. It is really well done, but too short for a credit, but great at a discounted price.
This is classic Mary Calmes. A shifter book with a sweet, engaging couple. Roman is a young, very rich man who was disfigured in a fire. Quade is a jackal shifter (think big Egyptian jackal, not small jackal) that was rejected by his family when he came out and has been Roman’s bodyguard for 10 years. When there is trouble in his old pack, he is called home to deal with it. The romance is great and there is a little angst and action, but pretty predictable HEA. That said, I hope there is a sequel as there were hints at future couples. The narrator is the great Tristan James, who could read the telephone book and I would listen to him. Worth a credit.
This was a really nice surprise as I have never read any of this author's book, but I loved this one. This is the story of Sage, an ex con with self esteem issues, and Win/Adam, a deputy in a small town in Texas with a homophobic boss, who is also his Uncle. I have to say that Adam is my favorite in this story, he is just amazing. He is funny, strong and determined to fight for his man, who is being persecuted in the small town. There is lots of drama and a cast of great supportive family and friends. I had a smile on my face whenever Sage and Win interacted because I just loved them together. Their dialogue was witty and heartfelt. Sage just broke my heart some of the time with not seeing his self worth. The author also doesn't shy away from the harsh reality of life in prison and what it was like for Sage, who went in for 8 years at the age of 18 after being unjustly convicted. That part was hard to listen to, but important to the story.
The narrator does an amazing job. He really brings these characters to life. Totally worth a credit.
I waited for months to get this book because I read the first two books in this series and knew what happens to Jase. But I finally got up the courage to listen to Jase's story. I'm really glad I did even though it broke my heart all over again, but it was closure for the Ben, Tim, Jase saga. It was kind of like the movie Apollo 13, even though I knew the space capsule ultimately gets back to earth, I was still captivated by the journey.
Jay Bell continues his theme of it is possible to love more than one person in a lifetime and still get a HEA. The only reason the story lost a star was I just really didn't like Victor. I know he was a major influence on why Jase turned out like he did and it was useful to understanding Jase, but I just hated him throughout the whole book.
The narrator continues to do an excellent job and was amazing. So worth a credit.
I loved this book when I read it and loved Tristan James narration even more. He has such a wonderful voice and really brings the MCs to life. This is the story of what happens after the HEA. An established couple with grown kids grow apart -- and this is the story of their self discovery in pure Mary Calmes fashion. Not a lot of surprises, just a very nice comfort read. Worth a credit.
