I love almost all of Mary Calmes' books. Jory and Sam are one of my favorite couples. I LOVE Jory and the way he looks at life, he is so much fun. But I hated the narration.
The relationship between Jory and Sam.
I don't understand why they switched from Paul Morey, he was great as the narrator for the first 4 books. Mr. Gelder has a very nice voice but there was no deviation in his tone for the different characters. Sam is suppose to have a deep, gravely voice and in this book he had anything but. It detracted from the story b/c I have read the all books and listened to the first 4 books with Paul Morey. It really ruined it for me and if Mr. Gelder does the final book, I will not purchase it.
This was a super cute listen with one of my favorite narrators, who does a great job as usual. It is short, but a great comfort read. Bianca (the kid) is a trip, with a cameo of Gabe from The Boy Who Came In From the Cold; as the MC lives in the same building. A little angsty, but no surprises or drama, just a sweet story of a girl trying to make her daddy happy. Not worth a credit, but great for under $5.00.
I really enjoyed this college age coming out audiobook. It is told from Connor's POV and Connor is painfully shy and socially stunted; sometimes annoyingly so, music student. But this is a book primarily about his journey during his first year of college. He meets Jared, the popular football player, and they begin a love affair in secret. But as we know, nothing stays secret for long and there is fall out and ultimately, growth. The narrator did a wonderful job bringing this book to life. His portrayal of Connor was spot on and he brought a wonderful emotional element. The only negative with this book was the drama with the ex girlfriend; it really seemed out of place for the story. Overall, worth a credit..
This is another winner from Josh Lanyon. This is the first book in a series. It is primarily a ghost story with a underlying budding romance. But I think this is going to be a slow burn romance, similar to the Adrien English series. Both men have demons to tackle and they are not really address (or in Kirk's case even revealed) in this book. But the ghost story is very compelling and I was freaked out a couple of times. The narrator does a great job with all the voices and the inherent creepiness. Can't wait for the next book. Definitely worth a credit.
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.
