Change of Heart | [Mary Calmes]

Change of Heart

As a young gay man—and a werepanther—all Jin Rayne yearns for is a normal life. Having fled his past, he wants nothing more than to start over, but Jin’s old life doesn’t want to let him go. When his travels bring him to a new city, he crosses paths with the leader of the local were-tribe. Logan Church is a shock and an enigma, and Jin fears that Logan is both the mate he fears and the love of his life.

Publisher's Summary

As a young gay man—and a werepanther—all Jin Rayne yearns for is a normal life. Having fled his past, he wants nothing more than to start over, but Jin’s old life doesn’t want to let him go. When his travels bring him to a new city, he crosses paths with the leader of the local were-tribe.

Logan Church is a shock and an enigma, and Jin fears that Logan is both the mate he fears and the love of his life. Jin doesn't want to go back to the old ways, and mating would irrevocably tie him to them. But Jin is the mate Logan needs at his side to help him lead his tribe, and he won't give Jin up so easily. It will take time and trust for Jin to discover the joy in belonging to Logan and how to love without restraint.

    "Great Series!!!"

    I loved this book. Maybe b/c of Crisden's narration, but I really like Calmes as well. Crisden really brings out the cocky attitude of Calmes characters. I loved the whole paranormal shifter wold but I was a little nervous about the male/male love interest. But whatever to that! I love both of my ALPHA males...

    This book was just great and Jin was just a great great character. He felt so real. I felt so sad for him about his family but now he belongs to Logan and YESSS to that... Right!!

    Loved it.

    "Loved the story but the narrator drove me nuts!!"

    I like all of the books by Mary Calmes and this one in no exception. My only complaint is about the narrator. He voiced the main character fine but several of the other secondary characters sounded like Muppets. I found the strange voices distracting and annoying. I'll never purchase an audio-book featuring this narrator again.

    Story
    "Good romance and UF"

    This book was a pleasant surprised. I was expecting the"were pack" thread to be a dressing to a m-m romance but it wasn't so. Calmes sensei actually has built a pretty solid world about were panthers in this book. To be honest, I think her were panther mythology and culture are much better imagined than some of the eroticas out there disguised as urban fantasies. And in that sense, if the reader is not familiar with weres and packs and what not in UF genre, one might get lost. Fortunately for me I am well versed in that kind of literature and had no problem understanding the were panther myth.

    This could have been just a story of hot guys destined to mate meet, have sex and happily ever after. It isn't. It is also about accepting and being accepted who you are and fighting to be yourself. I'm extremely happy to find that there is actually an sequel

    As for the reader...there is one voice that sounded like Grover from Sesame Street that was annoying but for the main couple I did not have any problem.

    Oh in addition the name of the main character is Jin as in Jinnai a Japanese name(mother is Japanese) which is a nice bonus

    "lots of fun"

    I really liked this book to my suprise! I have a tendency toward books 100 years old or older, so hearing a modern novel was fun. I just finished Maurice, and gay romance stories have certainly got hotter! I loved Maurice as it is so romantic, but this book is romantic and hot all at the same time. Add paranormal werepanthers and you have a good story. I hope she makes a sequel! I also wished lesbian novels were more fun, I am a gay women and we need stories like this one too!!!

    "Disappointing"

    Having read Mary Calmes "Matter of Time" series, I had high hopes for this story. Sadly it didn't deliver. Firstly the narrator has a very limited range. He doesn't seem to be able to pull off more than two believable character voices. More often than not I felt like I was listening to a cartoon. I found it very distracting. As for the story. I liked it, but it's very sappy. The main character Jin is constantly 'gushed' over. I understand a large part of it is because of what he is, but hearing how wonderful, rare and gorgeous he is over and over and over again got on my nerves a little. I guess it's a matter of personal preference, but I would have preferred a little more subtlety in regards to how special Jin is, instead of getting hit over the head with it every five minutes. I found the story interesting, and liked the characters (mostly), but it’ll be a long time before I’ll be able to listen to it again.
