    Jory Keyes leads a normal life as an architect’s assistant until he is witness to a brutal murder. Though initially saved by police Detective Sam Kage, Jory refuses protective custody - he has a life he loves that he won’t give up no matter who is after him. But Jory’s life is in real jeopardy, especially after he agrees to testify about what he saw. While dealing with attempts on his life, well-meaning friends who want to see him happy, an overly protective boss, and a slowly unfolding mystery that is much more sinister than he could ever imagine, the young gay man finds himself getting involved with Sam, the conflicted and closeted detective....

    Would you listen to Matter of Time: Vol. 1 again? Why?

    Yes. I usually re-read this novel once every six months. Jory and Sam's story is just the right amount of angst, love, hate, sex, and danger. I love Jory's inability to listen and get into trouble, but I love Sam's inability to not chase after him. Great story!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Matter of Time: Vol. 1?

    When Sam takes Jory to lunch with Maggie (Sam's girlfriend at the time) and gets into an argument with Jory to eat something before finally yelling "Just Eat something Baby!" and storming off. Poor maggie is like "Did he just call you Baby?" That scene is priceless.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Morey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes! I love his voice! He can make a deep sultry tone and a lighter more feminine tone. It's always good to have a narrator "Play" the part and Paul Morey does that to a T.


    If you could rename Matter of Time: Vol. 1, what would you call it?

    So Jory...


    Any additional comments?

    Love ya Mary Calmes keep making those awesome couples! I love Logan and Jin too!

    Vy Aleknos is the leader of a hawk shifter flock. Openly gay since he was a teen, Vy is proud and self-assured on the outside, while secretly worrying he'll be forced to spend his life alone because two males can't be mates. When bear shifter Robert Cimino appears in Vy's small town, Vy realizes his concerns were unfounded - he has a male mate, and a sexy, dominant one to boot. Robert is a bear shifter who refuses to shift.

    What did you love best about Control?

    GREG TREMBLAY!


    Would you recommend Control to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes! I loved the concept of the book but it lacked some emotions when reading, but when Greg Tremblay narrated it that brought to life the emotions of the story that were lost on the pages!


    What does Greg Tremblay bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Emotions! Individual voices! Passion! He makes these characters tangible!


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

    When Vy was trying to impress his mate for the first time.

    Life has never been easy for Duncan Stiel. His childhood was the stuff of nightmares, and his day job as an undercover police officer forces him to hide his true self and occasionally lands him in the hospital. So when he finally meets the perfect man, it comes as no surprise that everything falls apart around him. What Duncan doesn't expect is that the hardest hurdle to get over before he can make a life with Aaron Sutter is the one inside himself.

    Exiled by his pack as a teen, Omega wolf Simon Moorehead learns to bury his gentle nature in the interest of survival. When a hulking, rough-faced Alpha catches Simon on pack territory, he tries to escape what he’s sure will be imminent death. But instead of killing him, the Alpha takes Simon home. A man of action, Mitch Grant uproots his life to support his brother in leading the Blue Mountain pack. Mitch lives on the periphery, quietly protecting everyone, but always alone.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No because I am over Sean Crisdens terrible voices. He has one that literally sounds like Barney.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Didn't have one.


    What didn’t you like about Sean Crisden’s performance?

    He sounds ridiculous! I mean half his voices are just out there. Props for him trying to make them sound different, but some of them actually sound like Barney or like they are mocking someone.


    Was Blue Mountain worth the listening time?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The werewolf trope needs to stop.

    Maverick Brac has formed a pack of his own, naming them the Brac Pack. With fourteen men under him, they all have one thing in common, the preference for men. Cecil Walter was living a life no one would wish on their enemy in an abusive relationship with his partner with no way out. Getting away from pack problems and a migraine, Maverick indulges in his one secret love, Chai tea.

    Yes, I love this series by lynn hagen.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Made it longer with more detail on the characters and a little more build up.


    Did Johnny East do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes he did. Good job sir!


    Could you see Maverick's Mate being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Nope, that would be a porno.

    When Prince Leon disappears and his people are unable to find him, they turn to the dragons for help. Nyle is the unlucky dragon tasked with finding the missing prince, a duty he dreads as it forces him into the confounding human world and away from his collection of pretties. Locating a missing prince should be a simple matter, but if Nyle has learned anything about humans since being forced out among them it's that they needlessly complicate everything.

    About half way. It's a good re-read when I'm bored.

    I think this one is one of my favorites by her.


    Have you listened to any of Albert Black’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't


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

    What would have made Faith & Fidelity better?

    A way better narrator. He sounds like an old man with a bad accent and everyone that was male sounded the same. I couldn't tell who was who half the time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    When Matt and Evan got together for the first time. It was like they were teenagers sneaking out together.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of JP Handler?

    Tristan James, Jeff Gelder, Greg Trembly. Heck I'd even have settled for sean crisdens terrible voices.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Faith & Fidelity?

    Not much to cut in this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I was so sad hearing the narration for this book. I've waited a long time for them to come out with the audio book and when it finally came out it fell flat for me.

    With panic and intolerance spreading and streets becoming littered with the Order's propaganda, hostility between Humans and Therians grows daily. Dex and Sloane, along with the rest of the team, are determined to take down the Order and restore peace, not to mention settle a personal score. But the deeper the team investigates the bombings, the more they believe there's a more sinister motive than a desire to shed blood and spread chaos.
