Each of the love means series has wonderfully written characters, provocative and evocative storyline, and a great message throughout of acceptance, and understanding. A wonderful passionate escape. You'll fall in love with Andrew Grey's "family"!
Dark currents, surprising.
Hmm, can't quite find a comparison. Similar feel to Ghost Who Wore Yellow Socks, but with a paranormal plot.
Kirk, he's a bit different than Lanyon's usual characters. He's dark, edgy, experienced, war-torn, tough, but seems to have a big soft heart.
Hmmm, not sure either one would make a great dinner conversationalist really. Maybe the deceased crazy uncle. I have plenty of questions for him.
Once again, so many interesting layers in this book, that I can't wait to unveil the next book!
The narration, while varying in volume from segment to segment, was very good for these characters. If you're looking for a story about mental illness, abuse and PTSD, this hit's it on the spot. Painful, depressing and dark.
Pete, because he just wants to fix things, he loves nearly unconditionally and sacrifices so much for others. And even with all that he knows when he needs help.
Slide Into Depression and Regression.
Slide was a good story, but after spending 7/8 of the book going back and forth between Ash and Pete with their problems, I was very surprised that so much of the solution, therapy and more was summarized in the epilogue. I would like to see the content of the epilogue spread out into at least two chapters because so much happens there. Kind of cheated the ending.
Yes! This series is funny, passionate, high speed, a good mystery, nail biting at times, and eye watering at others. Also a unique blend of cultures adds to the plot in my book.
My brain constantly wants to lock all the cogs in place, I keep stirring around possibilities but the author is so very unpredictable! I love that the answer is not laid bare, I think I might know what is going on, but she's keeping the curtain veiled just enough not to see the whole picture yet! Frustrating and fascinating all at once!
His meter is perfect for the pace of the story, his voice alterations are perfectly matched for the different characters, and he's very passionate.
So very difficult, an obvious one would be Cole, or Jay, but I seem to be drawn to Bobby by his brashness.
A good mystery series, a bit bloody and shocking, but I think that's what makes it so fun, well that and the combustible passion between Jae and Cole!
The narrator did an excellent job assigning different vocal personalities to his characters, I really appreciate that. I've read this series and knew it would be tough to find the right narrator, but Gomez is perfect. Vic's personality comes shining through, but my favorite spot on voice was for Warwick.
Gosh that's hard, Jordan Castillo Price has such a unique voice in fiction. This is contemporary but not, believable psi-fi, moody, edgy, and hot all at once. Every part of my brain is fully engaged in her story telling. Maybe Jordan Hawk or early Anne Rice would be comparable?
Many, but the power and confidence of Jacob paralleled to Vic's seeming insecurity is interesting. Particularly since Vic was such a rock for his new partner during her crisis. IF that makes any sense.
This is so much more than what some might expect of m/m genre. Yes it's a romance, kind of, but more than that it's enthralling, and imaginative.
murder, snark, sexuality
The series builds, with a perfect balance of murder/mystery and a tense yet developing gay romance.
Christ Patton is perfect for this series. The voice he gives each character is distinct and feels natural. He makes a perfect Adrien. Chris has a way of bringing out Adrien's sense of humor, sarcasm that I sometimes missed by reading the book too quickly.
I love the trouble finding, situational sleuth, Adrien English. His character has great dry humor, vulnerability, likeability, I feel both sympathetic and irritated by him in turn. Jake, I feel like I can understand his issues, but I still want to kick his arse out of the closet anyhow. As the first book of the series, I know this will all take time, and the series isn't one big HEA, there are plenty of realistic relationship hurdles, breakdowns, and inevitable restarts. Each story is fast paced, at times nail biting, other times very sensual, and often surprising. Nothing really stereotypical here, no chicks with dicks, no fluff, just enjoyable, murder mystery with two MC's that are like fire and gasoline. A must read, and a stand out in the m/m genre.
No, the narration is monotone, no character to voices, painful.
Love the series and the imaginative made up world of Calmes' shifters.
No. I'll stay away from this narrator from now on.
Always to me it's Jin.
Too bad they switched narrators. Sean Crisden was my favorite.
I know some have disagreed with Sean Crisden as choice of narrator, I've heard some of his other books and agree the frog voice is bad, but he uses it minimally and all the rest more than make up for it. I think Sean did a great job and this is another great installation in the series. This book shows yet another side of their growing, developing and changing relationship, taking a look at roles, role playing, and a true need to understand submissive and dominant sides in a relationship, even both within the same person. Each role has it's own power and value. Good one ladies, keep them coming!
I enjoyed the ride along with their emotional and relational growth. The story arch is perfect, I felt like a part of their family by the end looking toward the future with Crick and Deacon. Oh, yes, sexual encounters were hot and realistic at the same time. Love it, highly recommend it.
I really like the Dark Hunter series, but this cross over was almost painfully bad to listen to. It couldn't even hold my interest through my daily commute. Too juvenile, the characters are also not as developed as her other series. This is definitely no Acheron! Sorry Sherrilyn. I would strongly recommend the Dark Hunter Series however.
