Jack, Gray, and Mason have accepted that love comes in many flavors and settled into a three-way relationship. Things haven't been easy, and now that Mason has gone back to school and Gray is interested in a detective position, Jack is feeling lonely. His lovers aren't around very often, and he misses lying around in bed, enjoying the benefits of living with two hot men. But Jack has secrets. He's uncomfortable every time he puts his uniform on. He's never recovered from seeing Mason held hostage, and he's no longer sure he was meant to be a cop.
While stressing over his own future and facing pressure from Gray and Mason to bring their relationship out of the closet, Jack is severely wounded in the line of duty. His recovery, both physical and emotional, might be more than their unconventional relationship can bear. Jack is going to need all the courage and support his lovers can give him if he's going to bring himself back from the dead and create the life he wants to live.

In this, the sequel to Fitting In, the boys have been living together for a few months. Mason is in school, Gray wants to become a detective and Jack gets injured and has to re-evaluate his life.
There is a lot of angst in this book (as compared to book one), almost all from Jack. He’s feeling insecure in his life, his work and at times his relationship.
There is more BDSM, ménage style, and some tender moments between the guys.
Jack finally gets some good advice – from a seventeen year old kid! – and the guys out themselves at last.
I didn’t like this as much as book one, simply because there seemed to be only two main foci in this book: aggressive sex or Jack’s angst. I wanted to see more from the other guys’ perspectives and maybe a bit more tenderness and less whips and ropes.
But… if you’re a fan of BDSM you will really like it and I try not to judge the story based on that aspect alone. I did appreciate the depth that the characters get to – in terms of the emotional aspects of their relationship – and the growth that all of them achieve.
3 of 5 stars
Greg Boudreaux narrates this series and he’s just wonderful! There are a lot of really, really emotional scenes in this story and Greg handles them with ease. He also manages to handle the smexy times with just as much ease. He’s just that gifted. I highly enjoy his narrations and I think this is the BEST way to enjoy this book/series.

Overall 4 of 5 stars
This book, and all books by this author have the perfect balance of sex and plot. Amazing, I hope the author release's more of her books on audible. With the same voice actor of course.
I absolutely loved this vocal performance. Greg Boudreaux did the perfect voice for Gray…and had distinguishing voices for Jack and Mason. And his inflection and emotions helped me really feel the book.
I loved getting Jack’s POV in this book…it helped understand where he’s coming from with all the changes going on. I would have liked Gray’s thoughts but I know we get them in book 4 (their 3rd book). Jack struggled a bit in this story…and he really had to rely on Mason and Gray to get him through. They became stronger as a trio as they worked through these issues. The sex with them is off the charts hot again.
I think Henry may have stolen the show a little bit and I’d love to see a follow up story about him when he’s older.
Overall, this is a great story that was narrated extremely well.
I really enjoyed listening this story, it always makes a story come to life better when you can hear it read. These characters were amazing and the narrator was good. I loved the whole story and was intrigued the whole time listening.
Listening to FITTING IN and SORTING OUT right after one another, I have to say that I liked the sequel more. Mason, Jake and Mason have settled into their relationship, their feelings for one another strong and solid. There was much more storyline in my opinion, as was the character development. The first book seemed kind of rushed to me, whereas I enjoyed every second of this one, including the scorching hot sex scenes.
The story picks up directly where it left off, this time narrated from Jake’s point of view. Gray’s decision to become a detective creates some exasperations within the threesome. Jake is still riled up after witnessing Mason being held at gunpoint. He felt so helpless and he fears when he and Gray are not even partners anymore, his insecurities might get worse. He is questioning himself and his job choice. When things take a turn to the worse at his job, Jake reaches his breaking point.
While Jake is trying to find himself professionally, he has also come to terms with Gray’s persistence to finally not only come out as gay, but to reveal and stick to their three-way relationship as well…
The emotional yet realistic struggle Jake goes through, that coming out scene at the bar, the voluntary work at the LGBT center – and most of all: Henry. It all adds up to a beautiful conclusion and I am sad to know that we will not get a story from Gray’s point of view. And as far as I am aware of, we will not even get Henry’s story either, which makes me kind of sad. This boy is a true gem and I would have loved to learn everything about him!
Now to the narrator, the wonderful Greg Boudreaux. It was not the first time I listened to an audio book narrated by him, and I hope there will be many more to come. His intonation, his breathing life into all those characters in such a way you never struggle to keep them apart… and his melodic deep voice in general. I have a feeling he could narrate the telephone book and I would still enjoy listening to him.
Avid reader, reviewer, blogger and budding author.
Yes, I love when a narrator can truly bring the characters to life.
It's a continuation of book 1 so about the same I guess
He brings the written characters to life and gives them depth that the print version can't possibly give.
I don't understand this question. What's wrong with the title the Author gave the story?
Sorting it Out picks up Jack, Gray and Mason's story where it left off at the end of 'Fitting In'. When Gray gets promoted to Detective, it cause a slight rift at home. With Jack's mind preoccupied - he still feels helpless after Mason being held at gunpoint - add to that Gray's promotion and the fact that they aren't partners at work anymore and Jack is left questioning himself. Then he gets shot on the job and all that does is add one more thing to his confusion... does he even want to be a cop anymore?
This was a wonderful but rocky continuation to this working threesomes story. They finally come out and though it lifts a weight off their shoulders not to have to hide or lie about what they mean to each other anymore, it doesn't come without it's complications. Not everyone is understanding of same sex relationships as it is, make it a threesome and it's even more so. I think what I loved most about this book was Jack's journey of self awareness. And while these three are always sexy and passionate, I thought the sexual content in this book bordered on too much. It didn't always add to or advance the story, a couple times it was sex just for the sake of adding more sex, and that didn't work for me.
Narrated by Greg Boudreaux (the spicier side of Greg Tremblay) and as usual, his tones and nuances were utter perfection. While each characters has their own unique and specific tone, I really, really enjoy hearing him voice Mason and his adorable naivete. These three men love each other in abundance and that really comes through in the narration.
I loved this book. I loved the continued relationship between Jack, Grey and Mason. I loved how Grey and Mason were there for Jack. They made me laugh and get emotional. The oh so steamy moments were perfect. I loved the young man Henry in the story it made me think about volunteering. I loved how the book ended it was perfect. I can't wait for the next book. If you want to listen to a good book I recommend this one if your into a good love story and humor.
I highly recommend this book, I love stories that have Romance and overcoming situations
