Now Sam's back and he knows what he wants... and what he wants is Jory. Jory, who doesn't know if he can survive another breakup or losing Sam to his dangerous job, resists returning to the arms of the only man he has ever truly loved.

    Story
    "It's not you..."

    There was just something about this series that I just did not like and I could not put my finger on it. I read and reviewed Volume 1 (Books #1-2) giving it a three rating for the story. I just completed Volume 2 (Books #3-4) and somewhere towards the end of book 3 I figured out what it was that I was having a problem with...I do not identify with the dominate/submissive relationship between Sam and Jory. Attempting to identify with the characters allows the reader to fully enjoy the tale that is being told and I just could not. I kept saying, if I was Jory...geez the expletives that spewed forth from my mouth! Now I will say that I did enjoy book four the most. Jory's escapades and his attempt at mystery solving was rather enjoyable (if not a bit far fetched) and the conversations between Dane and Jory were rather comical. I was a bit confused that Mary Calmes did not expound on Jory and Sam's union but rather chose to end the tale with anothers wedding and petty jealousy. I have book 5 left, but I will wait a while before I read it. I need a break from Jory and Sam. I would recommend, if for no other reason than I like Mary Calmes story telling.

    Story
    "Almost but...."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes and no. I love Calme's books, but her dialogue is infuriating.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mary Calmes again?

    Not sure. When I read her books, I love the concept's but her dialogues are so juvenile. Here you have mature grown men going through difficult situation but then the dialogue does not reflect what just happened. It is painful to listen to.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All the scene where the two characters actually communicated a point.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    The dialogue being better

    "Five stars to Paul Morey!"

    I'd read the four books back when it was published by Club Lighthouse Publishing then bought the edited Dreamspinner version. 5 stars all the way but it was Paul Morey's narration that truly brought this series to life for me.

    His interpretation of Det. Sam Kage is brilliant and the rest of the story is narrated with expression and just the right pacing but audiobook fans will know what I mean.

    "Good story but does have a lot of bouncing around"
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The way Jory goes from one thought to the next and when people don't keep up with him it can be hilarious. Laughed out loud several times during vol. 1 & 2.

    I want to start by saying I really love Mary Calmes books. I did however have a few things that got to me by the end and could just be my own pet peeves. 1 - I understood by the first volume that EVERYONE loves Jory and all the men want to sleep with him or be with him. This seemed so overdone that I started cringing when it still continued in this book. She also repeatedly goes over this with his brother Dane as well as Sam but Jory is focused on the most. Really? No one is LOVED by all. If you follow the series - these are NOT stand alone books so the author should not be repeatedly going over the stuff in the first volume and I see this is a pattern that is to continue in Bulletproof which I am listening to now. 2 - I usually find the endearment "baby" a total turn on till Sam used it so much that it lost the effect. 3 - Jory has consistently through both volumes tried to remain friends with guys that want to still be in his bed. HELLO???? If they still want to be in your bed then they don't see you as just a friend and Jory comes across clueless is this regard. On the upside he has a quick wit, charming personality and I love the fact that his filter is usually turned off and says what he thinks. That is refreshing.

    "Wonderful Narration"

    Paul Morey nailed Jory's personality perfectly. The voices were very distinguisable. I am in awe. I've listened to a few other books where the voices sounded put on and almost cartoonish. Not so here. It really sounded like different people were narrating. The book itself was excellent and I am a big fan of Mary Calmes, especially this series which continues with Bulletproof.

    Story
    "AMAZING!!! AWESOME!!! So Funny!"

    I have never been just as freaked out and scared like the character in a book like I was when Jory was scream while he staked out the house of his very own kidnappers in this book. OMG! While he screamed, I screamed... OMG! This was the best squeal I have ever listen too. I loved it. I was sooo utterly pissed at Sam for leaving Jory in book 1 but, I am kinda glad he did now, b/c Jory is just so super Funny now and so much stronger.

    The drama, kidnapping and danger Jory gets into is just crazy, but how Jory gets out of it is just re-donk-u-lus! Like how Jory gets kidnapped, then the kidnappers get car jacked with Jory in the back of the car... OMG! I laughed so hard I almost pee my pants. Best Squeal Ever. And the SMEX! HOT!

    Narration was great. Paul did a great job with this book to bring out Jory's strength and growth in his personality from Sam leaving him. It totally shows. And the totally ironic scenes, like when the kidnappers get car jacked... OMG! If Paul didn't narrate that right... that scene would have bombed... but Paul did it sooo great.. and I really felt like Jory was a real person talking to me. I LOVED IT! AMAZING>!!!

    Great Buy/Credit

    Story
    "Fun, light and a fairytale"

    I read all the books in the series and most of mary calmes' other books as well and i loved this story. Since then i have read most of the reviews and re- read the story. I can understand why this story isnt for everyone - its not deep or deals with serious topics - its a flat out Gay for you fairytale and to love it you have to read it as such. I enjoyed it because i liked the MC who tells the story - he's kind of an airhead and it gets him into situations that should get him killed or at least maimed several times - but of cause he prevails. I find it a light reading that lifts my spirit simply because its fun and about a lovestory that is too stormy to be true. The only thing that irritated me was the way the story gets retold many times but i guess that its because i didnt read it when the books was released and since it had not been a year since i read the last one, then i really didnt need the reminder.

    "So-So Read"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I was really tired of hearing how hot and sexy Jory was and how EVERY guy wanted him in his bed. It got really old fast. The series was just ok for a gay romance series. My favorite m/m romance series is Cut & Run by Abigail Roux (and another author until I think the 4th book were Abi continues the series.)

    "Love Mary's Writing and Story Telling"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It'a a great escape - especially if you enjoy great, artful writing from an author who isn't afraid to use college level vocabulary.

    "More of the same!"

    Volume 2 is as good as the first volume with the same whit and pathos - the characters are developing nicely and you feel like spending time with old friends. Paul Morey continues to breathe life into the characterisations.
