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.

I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
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).
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.
Ok if you are not a fan of m/m romance this audiobook is not for you (yaoi). This is one hotttttt story OMG a gang leader and a cop My heart was racing till the end ,loved these two characters Detective Gabriel Ashby and Angelo Pagan the most wanted man.This is going to be one of my favourite m/m romance audiobook I highly recommend it. The narrator Renard Pasquale was Awesome!
I love what the narrator did here. Loved it. I felt this one and he brought great emotion to the characters.
Detective Gabriel "Gabe" Ashby was interrogating one of the most notorious Gang leaders in NY, Angelo Pagan, when he found himself getting distracted by Angelo's lips. Angelo was the leader of Los Pescadores, was brought in for questioning due to Angelo's sister's disappearance. But this was some kind of fluke because Gabe is straight.
Weeks later, while Gabe is recuperating from getting shot by Angelo, they meet up again and Gabe begins to see there is more to Angelo than the street thug person. They soon give into lust and embark on a secret affair that they both know cannot last. After all, Gabe is a cop and Angelo is criminal. Soon their outside lives collide and they are forced to face music and make a difficult choices. But can they give up what they have found with each other?
Even though I suspected this would have an HEA, I didn't know how the author would pull it off, I mean, this is a classic case of Conflicting Interests. It's not a good look for a criminal to hang out with a cop, and vice versa. They both risked a lot sneaking around. But I love the person they were with each other. I love the narration and I loved the angst factor. I am glad I finally gave this book a chance and I can't wait to read book 2.
There was too much sex and not enough character or relationship building so I'd have to say no...
Make the men less emotional. Decrease the frequency of sex scenes. Actually show why these men are in love with each other beyond lust at first sight...
Somewhat. Some of the narrative was brought down by overacting on the narrator's part.
Well if they cn find an actor who looks and sounds like a younger Andy Garcia or a taller version of Antonio Banderas, then that guy can play Angelo. Gabe... I don't know.
I found out about Ellora's Cave not paying their authors the royalty they're due. If I'd known about that beforehand I wouldn't have purchased this title. I know there are 3 other books in this series and that they're much better than this book but I'm going to hold off on purchasing them until Ellora's Cave can sort themselves out.
I was glad about the ending. I like HEA. loved it ,
I LOVED IT , it was the only reason I finish the book.
no , it was not easy to hold my attention.
Tell us about yourself! Love to listen to jazz or classical and read erotic or a good paranormal sci-fi and good narration is everything
I loved every second of this book all the action, drama and the characters are so real to life. The narration is the "BEST" I say get the whole series! VERY VERY GOOD JOB Avril Ashton
No - really could not get behind Gabe being such a wishy washy, double standards, over reacting a**.
I would recommend the series, but not the first book.
Renard Pasquale's performance for this and all the rest of the series is outstanding!
Angel's first confrontation with his Uncle
Stick with it the books get better
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
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
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.
An unbreakable love.
I liked his Angel voice, it made sense .. not so in love with Gabe's voices.
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.
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.
