I've been having a very hard time recently getting through an entire audiobook. Still, I've been devouring e-books from my favorite authors. This lead..Show More »s me to believe that my dissatisfaction is down to the narrators (and yes, a lot is also down to the books and the authors). I bought this book on merit of Jack Lefleur alone. I've never heard of the author, Fae Sutherland (which is likely my own folly and nothing to do with her talent) but I've been wasting so many credits buying books and losing interest that I got desperate. I knew Jack Lefleur as the narrator would not let me down (the synopsis of the book sounded like something he would excel at reading).
Somebody needs to figure out how to bottle this man's voice. It's one of the sexiest things I've ever heard and the more he reads is the more you lose yourself in the words he's weaving around you. Every book he reads is a performance. Each character is given their own distinct voice. Each action pulls you in. It's not hard to imagine that you're sitting in that cockpit with Rain or stalking around the ship with Torin. Once he starts going, you really just have to drop everything, close your eyes, and let his words infuse you.
This book is sexy. There is no other word for it. If I've listened to it slowly it's because I've been savoring it. This is why we listen to gay romance as audiobooks. A sizzlingly hot story with a great plot. Throw in some off-planet action, hidden pasts, and running from the law and you're left with a story that has great characters and lovely world building. I wouldn't say it's the best story I've 'read' but it's definitely better than so many others. Rain and Torin burn the pages the second they are in a room together. Hot, sexy tension and scorching hot sex. And it helps that the plot is solid and believable.
If you have a lazy weekend or could do with a lie-in, download this book and listen. Definitely worth the credit!
I actually returned book 1, then went back and bought it again and gave book 1 another try after listening to book 2 all the way through... Book 1 was..Show More » actually really good. I guess I was super distracted the first time. I am so glad I gave it another try. This one was even better than book 1. Great sequal. Jack LeFleur is a really good narrator. I like the voices he used in this series because he just continues from book 1. Cookie, Jared Torrin and every all have the same voices from book 1, so I felt like I knew all the characters right away just from their voices. Great Great Job!
So good, I think I am still cheesing!!! I just couldn't wait for Jaret's story and guess what... his name is not even Jaret! And O yeah... Jaret is a ..Show More »prince! Who would have thought!
This was an awesome action packed romance... but it did fall short on the smex... Lots of angst but very little smexing! We got plenty of smexing in books 1 and 2... but not so much here. But... that is how good it was, the lack of smexing wasn't even noticed until the end... So I enjoyed it just as much as book 1 and 2. Great Great! I hope there is another one, but I think this is it. (Sad face here... :(
Great Narration.. Jack LeFleur is pretty good.
Good Credit if you have books 1 and 2... Good buy if you plan to buy books 1 and 2.
