I'll be honest, I have not enjoyed Cardeno C books in the past. But this is the second book in this series and I really enjoyed. I'm going to have to reevaluate my opinion of this author if they continue to be this good. Other books I've read from this author seem WAY over the top sappy with characters that were TSTL. But the two books I've listened too in this series were not like that. There is insta love to be sure, but it is a shifter book, of course there is. But these characters were funny and endearing. I believe that Charlie David's excellent narration is no small part of why I enjoyed this listen so much. Also, this is a stand alone book, you don't need to have read the first book, although this couple does make an appearance in the first book. This is the book of how they got together. Worth a credit.
This wasn't bad and it wasn't anything special. The narrator does a great job but the story is weak. I don't know why I keep expecting anything different from an author that seems to turn stories out like McDonalds does hamburgers and they are all variations of the same story. The story is too short to really be too detail, but it is what it is and I'm a sucker for hot fireman. Not worth a credit, but maybe a sale.
This is a VERY funny M/M romcom listen from TJ Klune. The narrator was perfect and really brought all the characters to life, especially the MCs. He was fabulous!! My only warning is you will laugh out loud at this book, so be warned if you happen to be in public at the time. Also, I truly hope there is a sequel on the way and they can get this same narrator. There is a weird production error between chapters where there is a 7 - 12 sec pause and you feel like the narration stopped; it didn't, just a long pause between chapters. Other than that, this was a great listen. Definitely worth a credit.
I think this was my favorite of the series so far, although I did really like the 1st book, Inherit the Sky. All the previous couples make an appearance in this book, but this book is much darker than the previous books. The author delves into some abuse and PTSD issues and I think handles them very well. The narrator continues to do a great job and I hope there is another sequel soon. Although this book is part of the series, I'd say you have to read the 1st book, but not book 2 or 3 to enjoy this one. I liked all the books and each couple kind of stands on their own, but Caine and Macklin are in all the books. Worth a credit.
This is the 3rd book of the series. However, I read the first book (Cop Out) and I think this book is really the sequel to the first book as it involves Kurt's brother Ian, who makes appearances in Cop Out. I haven't read the 2nd book, but reading the 1st helps with this one. Now the review. I really enjoyed this book and Tristan James as the narrator is just wonderful. Since this also involves a big Irish family, his wonderful brogue makes an appearance. I also like that we get both MCs POV. The relationship between Ian and Rick is a complicated one because of Rick's past. The blurb implies that Ian's "coming out" is a big part of the story, but it really isn't. It is primarily a story of Rick overcoming the "rules" he has imposed on all his relationships and taking a chance with Ian. And the author does a cute little twist at the end so it is not totally predictable. I connected with both MCs and enjoyed their journey to finding love. Worth a credit.
Another winner by Josh Lanyon and Kevin Free. This is a wonderful, spooky short story with a HFN romance. I listened to it in one sitting and was enthralled the whole time. The only bad thing is that it wasn't longer. I would love a sequel as it ends on a twilight zone type ending. Worth a credit.
This is a great listen. I really didn't know what to expect as I have not read any books by this author. But since Paul Morey is one of my favorite narrators, I took a chance. Glad I did. This was a wonderful story of a young man's sacrifice for his family when parents are killed and he is forced to bury his dreams in order to take care of his young brother and sister. The other MC is a great character who is unexpectedly wealthy after being raised in the foster system to two unrelated by blood brothers. The brother's dynamic is fantastic and funny as hell. But their love for each other comes through loud and clear. All these dynamics come together for a great romantic story. Worth a credit.
The best I can say about this book is I didn't "hate" it and I finished it. First off it is told in the storytelling form where the reader is told most of the info instead of having a POV from one of the MCs. I'm usually OK with that, but it prevents the reader from really identifying with the MCs because they are so arm's length. Second, it really is all over the place and has WAY too many characters with absolutely no or very little backstory on any. It is really just a story about a shifter pack and how it grew. Brian and Luke get together via insta love, as shifter are prone to do, then really nothing else happens. The theme is suppose to be how Luke's (Brian's Mate) became the "heart" of the pack, which is sweet, but a little boring. The narrator does an OK job, not really bad, but nothing special. Not worth a credit, maybe a sale for a sweet comfort read.
This was fine for what it is; a very short basic infill story. It is a sweet story about Len finding love again with Chris after his partner dies. I have now described 90% of the story. It is definitely not worth a credit, but if you are a fan of the series, it is probably worth a sale.
I'm not sure if this is the end of the series, I think so. If so, it ended wonderfully. This is my favorite of the three Dark Horse books. Evan, Jeff and Dan continue to work on their relationship, but the unexpected arrival of Dan's criminal sister brings danger to their family. In addition Jeff's health issue brings the three together and they realize how much they mean to each other. The narrator continues to do a great job.
