    As a young gay man—and a werepanther—all Jin Rayne yearns for is a normal life. Having fled his past, he wants nothing more than to start over, but Jin’s old life doesn’t want to let him go. When his travels bring him to a new city, he crosses paths with the leader of the local were-tribe. Logan Church is a shock and an enigma, and Jin fears that Logan is both the mate he fears and the love of his life.

    Story

    I accidentally stumbled over another series by Mary Calmes called "a matter of time" and was a little surprised when I flat out loved it. So when I finished that one I thought I would give this one a try too, although I was a little skeptical when it came to the supernatural plot. It is well-written and funny and if you like the supernatural part, you might find this one very good. Ofcourse you should also be able to read about homosexual relationships and their sexlife - otherwise you are in for an information overload, you probably could live without.

    I like the story but was generally irritated throughout the story because i really Didnt like the narrator. He is not AS bad as some i have encountered but still NOT good - he is overdramatic and at the same time monotone - weird combination.

    For Ryan Sanders, the Paige Community Center is more than a place where he teaches at-risk teens about musical theater. He found a sense of belonging there during one of the hardest times of his life. With the center facing a financial crisis, he'll do whatever it takes to keep the doors open - even soliciting fundraiser donations from Langley-Quartermaine Financial.

    Story

    I liked the way this story centers on the two boys, who just on the verge of discovering them selfes and each other, becomes the victims of violence and lies and the story actually starts when they se each other serveral year later.
    So they have a lot of baggage to overcome if they are to become a couple.
    The story has a lot of flash backs from either MC and normaly im not a flashback fan. It works for this story and the author is able to write it so that you feel like you are seing the world from a younger and much more innocent boy.
    Maybe not my top ten but Its worth a listen.

    Praesidium is the most prosperous city-state in the world, due not only to its location at the mouth of a great bay, but also to its strict laws, stringently enforced. Ordinary criminals become bond-slaves, but the Wizard places traitors in Stasis, a dreamless frozen state. Ennek is the Chief's younger son. He has grown up without much of a purpose, a man who cannot fulfill his true desires and who skates on the edge of the law. But he is also haunted by the plight of one man, a prisoner for whom Stasis appears to be a truly horrible fate.

    Story

    I loved "Brute" and maybe that made me expect too much of this book. Its not a bad story, really. But it doesnt feel like a lovestory and I dont think that you get to know the MCs very well. All the parts are there but you really dont feel connected. It seems to me to be more a story of the MC breaking free from a live he really dont want than a lovestory, and eventhough there is nothing wrong with that storyline, it wasnt what I expected and bottomline is I expected to be moved by the story and wasnt, so a little dissapointed.
    Narrator good.

    Austin Glass seems to have it all: a loving fiancée, a future with the FBI, and a healthy-sized trust fund. At least on the surface. He also has a grin and a wisecrack for every situation. But the smile he presents to the world hides a painful past he’s buried too deeply to remember, and his quips mask bitterness and insecurity. Austin has himself and most of the whole world fooled - until he meets a redhead in a pair of bunny slippers.

    Story

    This is absolutely in my top ten. The MC are very unique - both the detective and the young man he finds so irresistible that he becomes gay overnight. And the story have twists that you dont guess beforehand. Love the "brothers" and cant wait for the next story to get released. This book has its own ending, but it also provides a cliffhanger for the next story. If you are the impatient type, you might want to wait listening to this one, since there isnt a release date for the next one at the moment im writing this review. Narrator is good.

Thumbing his nose at his restaurateur father's demand that he earn his keep, Lucas instead seduces a valued employee in the kitchen of their flagship restaurant, earning himself an ultimatum: lose access to his father's money or stay in the middle of nowhere with a man he has secretly lusted over from afar.

    Story

    Cardeno C. is always good for some sweet romance and this short story is no exception - still because its a short story, it isnt very deep and i think he could have made it novellength by adding some more background material. But if you are looking for something short to entertain you for a couple of hours, this migth be a good bet. Narrator is, as always, good and one of my favorite narrators in audible.

    Guardsmen are always matched in a bonded pair. The Protector can shift into a weredog, and the human partner is his Handler. They are incredibly rare and highly valued, but people also fear them for their mystical abilities. No Protector in living memory has outlived his Handler - until Alex Taylor. Now a widower, Alex lives a lonely half-life and faces day after day of grief with no hope for happiness in the future.

    Story

    I found this book because of the narrator, whom i really like - he has a pleasent deep voice and always puts the right amount of feeling in his reading. The story is quite good, but somehow it really didnt get the emotions between the two MCs to shine. The animosity was believable and felt right but the eventual love between them i couldnt really feel - so instead of being great it kind of became a just above average love story.

    Do u know the feeling you got when you went to se "lord of the rings: the fellowship of the ring" and was left with the feeling - that is not a movie -only the intro! Well this is kind of like that - promising story but Nothing gets resolved and it ends very abruptly - it actually was so abrupt that it was several seconds before i could comprehend "i hope u have enjoyed this audiobook" wasnt a part of the story. The narrator kind of says it without pausing first to signal the end. Other than that he is a good narrator exept (i dont know if its him or the authors) a couple of times where he says the name of the wrong MC in a couple of places. If i had to start over i would definitely wait for the rest of the story before i started listening. But i would absolutely buy it, because it has the potential of becoming a very interesting series.

    There is nothing Aleron Pitre can’t steal, nobody he can’t con and no situation he can’t slip out of until he’s sent to the prison planet Tantoret, where every sentence is death. If the prisoners don’t kill each other, they’ll die slowly and painfully from mining the poisonous drug chojal. Yet Aleron still hopes that he can escape.

    I like the world the author cresated in this book - its a brutal and unforgiving place where both the prisoners and the guards are s... out of luck. But the love between the prisoners and the chief guard is heartwarming and the story about the other prisoners and the way the guards have their own motive for being there are not easily predictable. Well done!
    Jack LeFleur is always good, and this is no exception.

    Blood runs soul-deep. Cormac hasn't been the same since the night the High Moon Pack was attacked. With his magic weakened, he's consumed by a bloodlust he hasn't felt since he first became a vampire. His need to replenish his power makes him a danger to his last remaining family member, and his hunger makes him careless. And that's just the beginning of his troubles. Feeding from pack, beta Liam Benson was supposed to slake his appetite, not leave him craving more.

    I dont know why i dont like Rocky who is one of the main characters in this book, but that makes the book a little hard to like. If you feel differently you might like this story just as much as the first. And i might be getting used to the narrator, because i think he is a little better in this one. Still have a tendency to sound surprised all the time, but he seems to rein it in a bit in this one.

    "Diagnosis: Wolf by Poppy Dennison" Thanks to his good-for-nothing brother, Andrew Hughes is up to his eyeballs in debt and needs a job fast. When a nursing position opens up in Myerson, Arizona, Andrew has no choice but to take it, despite a warning about how difficult a patient Caleb DiMartino can be. Andrew can deal with a little trouble-but Caleb's strange family, the armed guards, and the unknown cause of Caleb's mysterious illness may be beyond his skill set.

    Story

    Normally i dont by short stories or books with more than one story since i mostly find that the stories are to short to get a feel for the charaters and - probably like everybody else - i have a tendency to skip books where i dont like the cover - and i really dont like this one. BUT since the stories are by Mary Calmes and Poppy Dennison, i thought i would try it anyway.
    The best story is - in my oppinion - PDs, which is the first in the book, but the story by MC is also worth a listen. And i love Jeff Gelder - very good narrator. And its a pleasure to hear one of PDs stories told as it should be, since her other books have an mediocre narrator.
