    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.

    I really liked the story and the premise of the story. Who wouldn't like a chance with they're high school crush?

    I like that, in spite of the inherent problems of loving a soldier, they both chose to let the future take them where ever it leads.

    Liked the story, did not like the narrator. The story needed to be shorter as there was too much repeating of sentences and phrases later on in the book. Hard to keep up with the story when the story keep kept going back in time and then fast forwarded to current. Don't know if I'll read the next one I'll have to think about it.

His mother inherits her uncle’s sheep station in New South Wales, Australia, and Caine sees it as the opportunity to start over, out on the range where his stutter won’t hold him back and his willingness to work will surely make up for his lack of knowledge.

    Forty-five-year-old English professor Nathan Qells is very good at making people feel important. What he's not very good at is sticking around afterward. He's a nice guy; he just doesn't feel things the way other people do. So even after all the time he's spent taking care of Michael, the kid across the hall, he doesn't realize that Michael's mob muscle uncle and guardian, Andreo Fiore, has slowly been falling in love with him. Dreo has bigger problems than getting Nate to see him as a potential partner.

    I really liked this story. It was an expected storyline reminiscent of past love stories, only between 2 guys.

    The author should try for a new twist to a tried storyline. Then I would probably give it 5 stars!

    Story
    Would you listen to Cop Out again? Why?

    Yes, especially if it was re-recorded with a different narrator! The story was good, maybe running a little long, but well worth the listening . . . except for the narrator, which almost had me not finishing the book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Curt. Even though it took him a long time to come to terms with himself and who he loved his character was real-to-life. The 2nd best minor role was his brother Ian . . . I saw that coming.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    No. The narrator seemed too flat, especially in the early part of the book. I have listened to other stories he's done and the same problem occurs. There is no emotion, no heat, no joy, no sorrow . . . just nothing. I read a book with more emotion in my head than was given in this narration


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really extreme . . . just the on-going theme of most gay love stories that of fear, sometimes self-loathing of one of the characters. I hope for a time when that type of stuff stops!


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator needs to get better or not be used. I look forward to the next story, but probably won't get it if it is the same narrator.

    What about Jill Apple’s performance did you like?

    All of it. She brought ALL of the characters to life but she was really Max to the limit!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Max is dealing with her feelings for Fang and her jealousy. She tells Fang that "there is no me and you." And Fang responds, "There will ALWAYS be a me and you!"

    In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box", the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Black Box the most enjoyable?

    Revisiting one of my favorite characters. I really like the way Connelly has had Bosch evolve over the years.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Bosch's interactions with his daughter; his unwavering principles; his lack of fear of internal investigations.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are two scenes that come to mined: 1) The quiet showdown with Lt. O'Toole when he talked about the pending internal investigation and the fact that he (Bosch) would be the one still standing when it was over. 2) The statement he made to the Sherriff at the last of the book when he told him he was glad he was still alive after the helicopter crash and glad that he would live the rest of his life in prison for killing all the people he did, especially, the girl he killed 20 years earlier.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A reckoning comes to all


    Any additional comments?

    Near the end of this book I was afraid that Connelly was making this the end of the series. I'm so glad he didn't and I look forward to the next Harry Bosch book!
