Three years ago, Jory Harcourt changed his name and shut the door on a past full of pain, only to emerge stronger on the other side. He has a new career, a great working partner, and a satisfying life - except for the hole in his chest left behind when police Detective Sam Kage walked out with his heart.
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. But when a serial killer with a score to settle targets Jory, he will have to decide if love is worth the danger as he tries to solve the case and keep Sam safe.

The book was good, all but at the end. I didn't for one minute think that excluding Jory out of the wedding and his extended family was ok. It was actually disrespectful and all because of the brothers wife? Really. I'm extremely disappointed to read the last chapter. Sam was feeding food with another woman, taking sexually suggestive photos, getting a lap dance and Jory just had to go with the flow. Wow!! Not cool. Then the mother in law says it's ok you two make a wonderful couple...yeah lady what if it was your husband acting as if he wasn't married all because others wouldn't understand or except it. That was crap and truly upsetting as a reader. As someone who invested time into this book and the relationship. Then at the end Sam just says oh stop you know I love you. Yeah she was hot but I like you better?? WTF...

As I mentioned in the review for Volume 1 - I have listened to this entire series multiple times since originally purchasing it. That is my best recommendation of a book ... when I want to go back and revisit, wallow, escape into it for a while.
The characters definitely evolve over the arch of the series - learn about each other, themselves, and where they want to fit in the world. I like watching some of the flailing, trial and error and farcical nature of some of their interactions. I *finally* genuinely fell in love with Sam ... and forgave Jory some of his hubris.
I enjoy the many layers and rich cast of characters in this world. I get that it slows the pace of the story and can at times feel like "filler" and distraction ... but ultimately it is that richness of world that makes me enjoy going back and listening over and over.
Perfectly enjoyable for fans of Calmes' Matter of Time series.
What was WITH the bizarre faux-Texas accent Mr. Morey gave Dane?! I'm sorry to say, it was AWFUL. Seriously, distractingly awful. I've listened to a good portion of the other books in this series, and though I know each reader gives their own spin, none of the other titles/readers even hint at a drawl for Dane. Struck me as being very out of character - a Good Ol' Boy Dane is not. Unless there's a detail I'm not remembering from when I initially read the books?

Love Sam Kage & Jory they are a great couple - great narration. Intriguing series.
Its the Ultimate over the top gay for you story with insane drama and High running feelings. Love the characters and especially jory. But i Think you will either love it or really hate it depending On whether you like the stories to be fairytales or not - because this story is a Never Ending fairytale about a very gay Young man Who gets into seriously screwed up situations and always manages to get out On top. And get the very butch beautiful, so not gay until he meets him, cop On top of it all. This is the second audiobook in this series by the Way and are not ment to stand alone.
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.)
fun, enjoyable, good
matter of time series all good love Jory and Sam and Dane, all the series is good
wouldn't it good as it is
It'a a great escape - especially if you enjoy great, artful writing from an author who isn't afraid to use college level vocabulary.
No! But I still love it!
I would not compare it to any! It's original!
No...first time but he was good!
Will listen again!!!
Sam because he knew what he wanted and just went head first for it....
SAM!! if you read the book you would know why... he is so sexy!
If you like m/m then this series is for you I would recommend reading in order..
