A male prostitute, a mangy cat, a murder, and an obsession that threatens his career, his impending marriage and his life...nothing is going as planned for Austin Glass.
Austin Glass seems to have it all: a loving fiancée, a future with the FBI, and a healthy-sized trust fund. At least on the surface. He also has a grin and a wisecrack for every situation. But the smile he presents to the world hides a painful past he’s buried too deeply to remember, and his quips mask bitterness and insecurity. Austin has himself and most of the whole world fooled - until he meets a redhead in a pair of bunny slippers.
As events unfold in the biggest case of his life, Austin’s carefully planned future unravels, and he finds himself pushed into making quick, life-changing decisions. But can he trust himself or anything he feels, when each event seems to be just a series of volatile reactions?

I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
This book was awesome! M/M romance fans...you are so going to want this book! The story is what is so great, more so than the character development...but wow, there are some great, and extremely well developed characters, right down to the bevey of secondary characters...
The romance is slow and engaging...not many amex scenes...but unlike most m/m romance books where u literally need the smex at times to drive the story forward...the smex was more so apart of the story and written so well you hardly notice there is smex in this book. Although good scenes, I do wish there were more...but because u learn the background of the characters so well...when they actually get around to smexy time...u understand why they only went as far as they did...made perfect sense!
I LOVED the background of the 3 not brothers, but brothers! I loved the dialogue in this book....so funny, so serious and so dramatic! Just Awesome...AWESOME!
Narration was great...first time with this narrator...
Definitely worth the credit... Remember this is a m/m romance, mystery, suspense book...so if neither of those are ur cup of tea...well skip this and drink cola!
** I have a new love for bunny slippers!
This was a great listen. It is cop/criminal romance and adventure with some really great writing. The main protagonist is really funny. The narrator does a great job with all the voices and brings the right amount of snark to Austin's character. I don't usually like single POV stories, but this really worked. It lost one star only because it drags a little and sometimes Austin's smart assed remarks seem out of place. Overall, worth a credit. I look forward to the next book in the series.
Austin's inner dialog.
Rescuing the cat.
I have not. He's very good. I wouldn't hesitate to listen to another performance.
Peter. So broken yet so wise; jaded yet still romantic.
I'd never heard of Dani Alexander. I was sure this was some female mf romance writer crossing over to take advantage of the hot mm romance genre. Wow, I couldn't have been more wrong. Firstly, Dani Alexander is a man. Secondly, I think he wrote one the funniest, most complex, most original romances I've ever read...or in this case, listened to. Joseph Northton was a very good narrator. I laughed, I cried, I was devastated, I was elated. It was a rollercoaster ride. In the end, I was completely satisfied. And set up for the next in the series, Not So Innocent, which focuses on Cai and Riley. I'm chomping at the bit!
The witty dialogue is in most cases laugh out loud. The monologue and the thought processes of Austin are hilarious at times and help us understand him and sometimes forgive his actions. Both leads are strong in but flawed in their own way but complement each other very well.
It is my first book from this author but it will definitely not be the last. The story never slows, its one thing after another with lots of twists and turns. There is no big revelation at the end of the book as most books are but lost of 90 degree turns that catch you off guard and keep you riveted to the book. The romance is always there and developing with its own ups and downs. I finished this book in 2 days it was that good. Even though there is no amex per say but there are definitely other things which for me were enough. This story and the writing was so good you did not need heavy smex scenes to keep your interest.
I cannot even choose. I liked both main characters, Austin and Peter as well as Kaye. The ending hints at a possibility of the next book and I cannot wait. It will be on my auto download for sure.
First time to listed to this narrator but it will not be my last. He has a good range of voices as well as accents. He can convey emotion and really draw you in. With more and more narrations he can only get better. Please Joseph narrate more books, you are on my auto download. If fact I searched for anything else he might have narrated but sadly this is the only one. He definitely added to the story
If you like m/m romance with a story then this book is for you. You will not regret getting it.
Loved this book. On the face of it, the story of a 27 yo straight cop suddenly going gay, seems a bit far fetched. But Dani Alexander finesses Glass' experience with such class and feeling, you're let completely accepting the premise.
A really human story that sparkles with lighting sharp barbs of humour. I really hope another is in works.
I read the book about a year ago and loved it. This time listening was a different experience but just as good. The narrator did a great job and made the story come to life.
Probably top 20
Maybe Shades of Gray with humor
Laughed out loud a lot!
Good humored book, good story line, kept my interest throughout
I love books
Loved the story and characters got sucked right in. Can't wait for another fantastic story
Shattered Glass is an exceptional listen. Though the chapters come off disjointed, the story and characters more than make up for it. The ending is a bit open ended to me, so possibly a sequel? The narration was excellent. I enjoyed both Peter and Austin's narrative in the story and found them very anti-hero, which I loved. Definitely worth the credit!!
"Fabulous narration by Joseph Northton"
In terms of performance, I enjoyed this as much as ' Hot Head '. Both narrators enhanced the manic, enthusiastic writing that characterise these books.
Peter's voice, in particular, but I loved all the voices in this book.
Peter's incredible voice and order to Austin's chaotic inner voice. I actually enjoyed the audiobook experience even more than the text.
It often made me giggle.
Please get the same narrator for the next book!
The narrator was simply amazing, the story was amazing everything about this book was amazing! I highly recommended this book
"A real gem!"
A rollercoaster of pure delight.
Action, wit, romance, and so brilliantly written and narrated.
The characters are delightful, the asides amusing. There is nothing average about this one!.I have this now on kindle, on audio, and have sent for the real thing in paperback! Loved it.
A must read and a keeper.
