Publisher's Summary

Jin Rayne is having trouble adjusting to the new life he’s supposed to love. Instead of adapting to being the mate of tribe leader Logan Church, Jin can't get past the fact that his lover was straight before they met. He's discovered the joy in belonging to Logan but fears his new life could disappear at a moment’s notice, despite Logan's insistence that they are forever, end of story.

Jin wants to trust Logan, but that desire will be put to the test both by a rival tribe leader and by a startling revelation about Jin's existence. At stake is Jin's life and his place in the tribe. If he's going to survive to see Logan again, he'll have to release his fear and freely accept the bond, for only then can he truly trust.

    "Narrator not much better"

    I like the story. Mary Calmes is a terrific writer. It's just sad when the narrator doesn't do the story justice. I didn't like the narrator of the first book but at least he gave the characters different voices, as much as I didn't like them. But this narrator didn't give any of them different voices except maybe the women. I was confused a lot of who was talking. I've noticed this with all of Jeff Gelder's narrations.

    "Awful Reader"

    I love Mary Calmes and her books. But this reader is awful. He sounds like a robot. Chopped syllables, mispronunciation and no emotion what so ever.

    Story
    "Poor Narration and editing"
    Would you try another book from Mary Calmes and/or Jeff Gelder?

    Enjoy Mary Calmes book and will buy book 3 in series despite narrator; he didn't take time to listen to first book in series to get pronunciation correct and he clearly lost his place a couple of times because he repeats the same line.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    didnt have a favorite character - liked the interaction between the characters


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jeff Gelder’s performances?

    no, his reading style lacks emotion


    Any additional comments?

    this tape should have been edited before it was put on the market

    I love this series, falling for all the characters. Starting to fall for Domen Thorne

    Voice!

    "Loved Mary Calmes' Book"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love seeing the emotional journey Jin experiences as he comes to realize how much he trusts and loves Logan.


    What didn’t you like about Jeff Gelder’s performance?

    I was so disappointed in the narration. There were inflections that made no sense, pauses in the middle of sentences that had no purpose and no changes in voice or tone to accommodate the different characters.

    Story
    "Trusted Bond"
    Would you listen to Trusted Bond again? Why?

    Definitely will listen again because it is a beautiful story and the setting is wonderful. I loved the way that the music set off the setting and the premise of the story. Jeff Gelder was a wonderful narrator, though, at first I was biased against him as I loved Sean's narration of the first book. After listening for awhile I began to fall for Jeff's narration and I really enjoyed his reading.


    What other book might you compare Trusted Bond to and why?

    Of course, you compare the book to Change of Heart and the series because this is what the story is apart of.


    What about Jeff Gelder’s performance did you like?

    As I said earlier Jeff's performance is wonderful, after some early reservations I really took to his reading.


    If you could rename Trusted Bond, what would you call it?

    I don't know what I'd name it, I like the title it has.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm hoping that soon I'll see 'Honored Vow' and 'Crucible of Fate' the next 2 books in the 'Change of Heart series' on audible.

    Story
    "The narrator has his strong points"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    yes, because the story was compelling


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    This is not my first book with Jeff Gelder so I knew what to expect. A listener should be forewarned, Jeff has a GREAT voice for Logan. It's warm and sexy and done perfectly, however, he cannot do Jin, which is a problem since it's a first person book and Jin is the one telling the story. He just can't do Jin to save his life. I'm not sure why that is. Other characters come out perfect, but for whatever reason, Jin comes out flat. For Logan's voice alone though, I'd recommend this story. if you can accept it for what it is, then I think it's a very enjoyable listen. Highly recommended because it's a cute story. I think Jeff did a better job than Sean.
