Publisher's Summary

Ethan Abbatt is a wolf shifter who can't shift. Plagued by pain and weakness all his life, he hopes to find an honorable death by joining his pack mates in a vampire attack. Instead, Ethan learns two things: draining his blood releases his pain and his wolf, and he has a true mate - a vampire named Miguel.

Miguel Rodriguez is more than four centuries old. Strong, powerful, and vicious, he walks through life as a shadow, without happiness or affection. When a young shifter tells Miguel they're true mates, destined to be together, Miguel sends him away. But Ethan is persistent, and Miguel can't resist for long. Once Miguel gives in, being together comes naturally. The challenge is keeping themselves alive so they can stay by each other's side until forever comes.

    "Adorable vampires and shifters"

    I'll be honest, I have not enjoyed Cardeno C books in the past. But this is the second book in this series and I really enjoyed. I'm going to have to reevaluate my opinion of this author if they continue to be this good. Other books I've read from this author seem WAY over the top sappy with characters that were TSTL. But the two books I've listened too in this series were not like that. There is insta love to be sure, but it is a shifter book, of course there is. But these characters were funny and endearing. I believe that Charlie David's excellent narration is no small part of why I enjoyed this listen so much. Also, this is a stand alone book, you don't need to have read the first book, although this couple does make an appearance in the first book. This is the book of how they got together. Worth a credit.

    "For your listening enjoyment"

    I really enjoyed this audio. It was a good listen. The narrator was wonderful with his accent and innocents of our younger Ethan and the smoothness of Vampire character Miguel.
    It may not be as deep as other Cardeno C 's books but it was certainly worth the price and it is something you could stand listening to more then once.
    I enjoyed the not too complicated story of our characters, I believe the storyline could have been longer to get more in depth. However it was good at sticking to the bottom line. How and why are our characters getting together and what would keep them together.

    "A decidely average, but good, read"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Until Forever Comes to be better than the print version?

    I always tend to gravitate towards audiobooks, one because of the narrator and two for the convenience. So yes, I consider the audio edition better.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    A sigh.


    Any additional comments?

    The idea of the book was good but it seemed to be missing that "umpf", you know?
    The conflict between Ethan and Miguel was good, intriguing even. However beside that, there was no real plot. Yes, because of what they are there should have been struggle, should have been some tension. But in all actuality there really wasn't much. Everything just resolved too easily, too conveniently. So by the end it was kind of dragging, and a bit anti-climatic. So this would be a book where the concept was good but the execution could have been better. I still enjoyed it however, as I did the first book in the series, and would read future sequels.

    "not as good as book 1"

    This was not as good as book 1. I think the whole country wolf thing really messed it up a bit... the wolf almost seemed like a dummy... then the whole tiny wolf topping a big powerful vampire was just unrealistic more so than a wolf and vampire story.

    Narration was ok... but the wolf voice or rather country accent didn't work for me.

    Great send and romance but still it was just eh!!

    Good credit if you have book 1... not a buy... maybe a sale...

    "Ooooh, gory sex!!"
    If you could rename Until Forever Comes, what would you call it?

    Oho, this is such a cute scene, I'm just oozing to the floor right now. Don't mind me.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is adorably sweet and sappy, but also delightfully bloody and with a bit of darkness that is not really addressed (possibly could disrupt the syrupy sweetness). We are dealing with a vampire here, and they are not perfect, although Miguel comes pretty damn close, minus the sparkling. I loved the first book in the Mates series, but this one jumps right into their relationship, so no waiting necessary. It has its tender moments, but for the most part its just really, really sweet. All in all a good, sappy opposites attract.

    "Can't Wait to Play It Again"
    If you could sum up Until Forever Comes in three words, what would they be?

    Love defeats all


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Until Forever Comes?

    The most memorable moment was when Miguel tore through chains just to get to Ethan because he smelled his blood and thought someone had hurt him.


    Have you listened to any of Charlie David’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to him before. I like him. I like the way he really brings out the personality in a character. He's not choppy or pausing for unknown reasons. He's consistent and has a way of really using his tonality to distinguish among the characters in any story he narrates.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Until Forever Comes


    Any additional comments?

    This book is awesome. I loved listening to it. In fact, this series is what has made me actually consider reading Cardeno C's other works. The way the alpha male surprises you. He's strong, loving, protective but he has his own set of "needs" that would make a lesser man appear weak but simply makes him so much more. The yin to his yang is no weakling either. He may be smaller, but he has honest courage. He's frightened and willing to admit it but wants nothing more than to protect his man. The passion between them? You may need to pull to the side of the road. Just saying. Whew!

    I also like the way the women are portrayed. Not weak, not overly dynamic but varied, no carbon copies.

    The story is alive and once you're done, you will want to play it again.

    "Great series."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, absolutely. This series was amazing and I hope more will be released by Cardeno C in the future.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All characters where great but the sister had to be my favorite. Her stubbornness and individuality was refreshing to me.


    What does Charlie David bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I would say the story is very well read by Charlie David and it really brought the book to life for me.


    If you could take any character from Until Forever Comes out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would say the sister. She just seems like she would be a blast to dine with.


    Any additional comments?

    Great read. Be sure to read the first book and please ENJOY!!!!!

    "Beautifully written and truly a great story"
    If you could sum up Until Forever Comes in three words, what would they be?

    Exhilarating, endless possibilities!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Migueal, because he didn't know what was happening to him and even when he found a solution he tried to run from it then feel head over heels.


    Have you listened to any of Charlie David’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    HE IS A GREAT NARRATOR! i didn't hid the hic speak either :D


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The story you never thought possible that is truly meant to be.

    I honestly i think there is plenty of detail in this book that i should be made into a movie i can totally imagine everything! :D


    Any additional comments?

    Great great book I would recommend to any one. Their story/ journey together is so compelling! Cardeno C is a great Author i Hope he continues their story further in the mates series! They had such a long live together and I am not yet bored of this book so i hope there is more of them in the books to come. *way better than the first book in my opinion!

    Story
    "very different to book one"
    What did you like most about Until Forever Comes?

    Until Forever Comes introduces us to Ethan and Miguel, a wolf and a vampire, who appear towards the end of Wake Me Up Inside. This is their story and its told very differently to that book. That book is written in the third person, and this one, first person, specifically, from Ethan's point of view and ONLY Ethan's.


    What other book might you compare Until Forever Comes to, and why?

    any book, that deals with M/M, humans or paranormals. Cardeno C has a way with words, and Charlie David tells a story in a way that makes you wanna listen all the day long. Well I do, anyway!


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Katie, Ethan and Miguel, talking about life threads, and bonding, while Ethan and Miguel are still joined. talk about laughing out loud!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    when Miguel says to Ethan, Until Forever Comes. LOVED that bit!


    Any additional comments?

    fabulous book, thank you! not much else to say. I will look into getting these as ebooks too.

    "Opposites attract!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Until Forever Comes to be better than the print version?

    Equally as good without a doubt! The audio edition does bring the characters to life a little more, but as print version is so well written, anyone reading Until Forever Comes will automatically start adding voices and visuals to the characters!


    What other book might you compare Until Forever Comes to, and why?

    I'd only compare this book to Wake Me Up Inside, due to it not only being part of the Mates Series, but because this was also narrated by Charlie David. I enjoyed Charlie's narration on this book the most.


    What about Charlie David’s performance did you like?

    I loved how Charlie managed to differentiate the characters voices so well!


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    An unconventional start, with a promising ending!


    Any additional comments?

    A thoroughly enjoyable listen with a great story line, great characters, suspense and love!
