The only problem I have with the audio version of this book is the narrator, Whenever he impresonates a woman I begin cracking up, it really sounds ..Show More »like he's joking at first. He does this in both books of this series. Fortunately, there are few women characters in this one, and so the distraction is limited. Other than this and his overly perfect pronunciation of every word, he really does great accents, and is very consistent with the character's voices throughout the book.
But here's why I give this read 5 stars: I actually listened to this book after Sticks and Stones, in other words, out of order. I was stunned at how good this book was. It's much better than its sequel. The character development balanced with the intrigue of the case the story revolves around was in perfect proportion. It's a little slow at first getting started, but it really was worth it. Being a gay man myself, I was amazed at how spot on much of the sexual tension believe the two men was. Especially surprising is that it was written by two women. Ha! I would love to know what kind of research was involved in gay-men courting in order to write this book. Throughout the story you sometimes want to strangle each of the characters, and other times want to be the object of their seduction. I found myself relating to both Ty and Zane in different ways. And the climax of this story brought tears to my eyes. Congrats to the authors on an amazing book, the best gay-novel I've ever read. Thanks!
Not sure if this was a sequel, per se, but the continuing adventures of Ty and Zane allowed the reader to pick up the story and continue on the journe..Show More »y of self-discovery and self-realization of the two characters. Abigail Roux and Madeleine Urban did a good job relating the story, though I must admit I was bit disappointed at how long it took the characters to realize their truth...if they even did, which is where the disappointment came in. Despite that, the characters of the book were entertaining and engaging...I loved the 'grandpa' character...heck, loved all of Ty's family. Sawyer Allerde narration was spot-on and added to the tale. Though maybe not as good as Cut and Run, it was still a great continuation to the story of these interesting characters.
I feel like these guys are family and I just want to shake 'em and say.... "Get it together!" But their's is a very believable relationship of two me..Show More »n who come from worlds where homophobic standards are imposed. I do have to say that despite that, the end of this one is just out of left field. We need a resolution!
Listening to this book is like visiting old friends. I read and re read this book many times and the audio version did not disappoint. If you are no..Show More »t a fan of the series and have not read all the other books, I'm not sure you will get as much out of this book. The real appeal in this alpha/alpha relationship is how they got to this point. The secondary story in this book is almost incidental. The other couple in this story makes more sense if you read Warrior's Cross, (their story), But you can still enjoy the book if you haven't read Warrior's Cross. Sean Crisden does a great job with everyone's voices EXCEPT Cam's. He made him sound like a sniveling weasel and he really is a great character (I've read Warrior's Cross). Regardless, this is a must for any Ty and Zane fans while we patiently wait for the release of Stars & Stripes and hopefully Touche & Geux on audio.
