Publisher's Summary

Detective Gabriel Ashby has never looked twice at another man, yet the criminal across from him, the man he's interrogating, isn't like any other. Gabe can't deal with the sudden, intense need he has for one of NYPD's Most Wanted. Everyone close to Angelo Pagan ends up dead, with the smug gang leader standing amid the rubble. Gabe would love nothing more than to bust Angelo's ass and lock him up. So why is he seeing the bastard in his dreams at night? Angelo Pagan knows attraction to Gabe is suicide. He's resolute to ignore the chemistry…until a police raid goes wrong. He critically injures Gabe, changing the trajectory of both their lives. Now the two can't get close enough. They settle into a forbidden affair threatened by lies and betrayal, living on different sides of the law with no way of breaching the gap between them. With the authorities looking to make an example of Angelo, Gabe has to decide if it's really worth it to hate the sin but love the sinner.

    "YES!!!! One of my favorite m/m series!!!"

    I totally preordered all four books in this series and eagerly waited from them to release... I got this series on e-book... and was hoping for it to be narrated...

    It was awesome...

    Angel and his cop Gabe really set this entire series off on a grand scale... I loved Angel!!!

    I absolutely loved the narrator... as I read this book before, so I really expected a lot from the narrator, as there is a lot of Spanish... Renard Pasquale nailed it!!! He transition from Spanish to English perfectly, and even narrated Angel with a Spanish accent... Perfection!!

    Any fan of m/m romance need to have this entire series in their collection... One of the good ones... It has drama (gang/cop action); romance (smexy scene that leave you panting) and last but not least... a storyline (it's a series with reappearing characters).

    Great buy/sale/credit!!

    "I really liked this, although I shouldn't"

    Honestly, I really shouldn’t love this book as much as I do. Objectively, this really is not a very good book. It is an overly sappy, unrealistic alpha male, instalove read, which would make more sense in a shifter book, but whatever. That said, for some reason I loved it. I love Angelo and Gabe’s relationship. They are just too cute!! Big tough men exposing their feelings to each other in a very sappy way. It will definitely not appeal to everyone. This is NOT Ty and Zane in Brooklyn. This couple has a very different dynamic. The narrator does a really good job bringing diversity and emotion to the characters, and there is a lot of emotion in this story. Not Cardeno C levels, but a good amount. I think it is worth a credit. On to Book 2.

    "Gabe and his Angel belong together !!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Love the Sinner the most enjoyable?

    This was a great start to the series...after listening to chapter 1, I went ahead and got the other 4 with no hesitation. The love affair was amazing...The story outside of the main couple was addictive. Fantastic secondary characters, Pablo, Syren, Mateo, Kane...All round Badass novel


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love that Angel...rough and tough gangster never thought twice about being the man Gabe deserved. He gave everything he had for them. You would expect that Gabe would be the one falling to his knees but Angel turned out to be the sensitive bastard that made me bawl


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

    He spiced up the book with that Spanish accent ...Damn. The voice for angel...was fantastic.
    What he does with the word "cop" should be illegal.


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

    An unbreakable love.

    "I like it, but dont love it, Book 2 I love"
    What about Renard Pasquale’s performance did you like?

    I liked his Angel voice, it made sense .. not so in love with Gabe's voices.


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

    Pablo ... Pablo .... Pablo .... Pablo .... Pablo, Only a couple of scene's but there is one that broke my heart, and made me fall in love with Pablo .. he got his own story too.


    Any additional comments?

    I am not in love with this book. I have the whole series and i have re-listened to the other books a couple times but not this one. Its good but not awesome.

    "Yum!!!"

    This is one of the best smexy books I've got into in a long time, and I couldn't be happier that it's a series! Renard was amazing as the narrator, easily transitioning between accents. I do wish Gabe was a bit more masculine at times, but overall, the book and narrator were a wonderful match. This book marries romance and dominance very well. My highest recommendation if that sort of thing tickles your fancy.

    Story
    "You can't control who your attracted to"

    You know a story is worth it when you cheer for the bad guy. Yes one is truly a bad guy who does bad things. I liked these guys, thought they were fun & sexy and had chemistry. The narrator was wonderful, great job Renard. The story starts off well it is basically a story of meeting someone who you just can't hide the real you from.

    One of our characters knows he's gay but doesn't really do anything about it and the other hasn't ever had to think about it until he meets and is attracted to a MAN. Luckily they are smart enough to just be amazed by it happening instead of trying to figure out why.

    Oh they have other issues. The story is not too predictable and one you will enjoy. The sex scenes will definitely have you making sure your earplugs are in completely. Oops caught me blushing.

    Story
    "I wanted to like it, but couldn't finish it."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not sure, but certainly wasn't for me


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Nothing else in this series


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was ok, it was the storyline I did not like.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The idea that a cop and gangster might have a relationship could have been a good plot line, unfortunately it didn't pan out in my opinion. The interaction and dialogue between the two main characters was unrealistic and hard to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    I usually like gay fiction written by woman, it's an odd combination that can really work at times. I felt like this book was written from a woman's perspective and the cops gender was changed to make the book fit into this genre.

    Story
    "Gabe and Angel"
    What made the experience of listening to Love the Sinner the most enjoyable?

    The narrator, but for whatever reason, I did not like the voice of Gabe, It did not match what he was doing in the story, or maybe I just did not like Gabe, don't know..


    If you’ve listened to books by Avril Ashton before, how does this one compare?

    This is the first I have seen of audio for her books


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

    no, first but definitely not the last.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Neither, this was good for the kick off of the series, and a necessity to read or listen to to get to the next books, but 2 and 3 are my favorites.

    "My Kind of Story"

    I listened to books 1-3 before I posted my review. This book was not my normal type of book but I was intrigued by the reviews on Amazon. I was immediately drawn into Gabe and Angelo's story and I enjoyed the journey from beginning to end. This book is definitely my favorite in the series. I didn't fall in love with book 2 or 3 but the chemistry in this story was captivating and I was rooting for the couple to find love. The thing that really made this story stand out for me was the emotion Gabe and Angelo gave to each other. They were willing to be venerable to each other and it was very refreshing.

    "Love Conquers All"
    What made the experience of listening to Love the Sinner the most enjoyable?

    I have this book on my Kindle. Loved it reading it. Listening it was even better! Renard Pasquale made the story for me! He did an amazing job with the voices and emotions of the characters. I've already downloaded the next two books in the series. This one is a keeper in my library.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Love the Sinner?

    The entire book is memorable.


    Which character – as performed by Renard Pasquale – was your favorite?

    It's a toss up between Gabe and Angel.


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

    Love has no bounderies.
