This book! My goodness. Thank you to all the forces that came together to bring this one to us listeners. It was 7+ hrs of bliss to listen to. ..Show More »r/>Although there are very solid explanations and twists to the tropes, generally the storyline of this book has nothing new. If you've read the Change of Heart series by Mary Calmes, and/or the With or Without series by Langley, or really any M rated werewolf/human fanfiction, then you know exactly what route the storyline of this novel takes. YET, I have no idea what sorcery Cardeno C. worked, but whatever it was, the author sold me this entire story as though it was brand new. Every single word made my heart ache for these two men. I needed them to be together more than they needed to be. I believed 100% in their love and kept forgetting to breathe, chapter after beautiful chapter.
Charlie David is perfect as the narrator of this book. Perfect. In fact, I will just take a moment to commend him and all the other truly amazing male narrators that we have in this genre; the Method-Readers as they seem to be, who do more than just read the words but truly perform every scene. He did things with his voice that made my heart flutter. He gasped, and laughed, and delivered lines in a sexy, husky, tone that had me swearing out loud and needing air. The way Jonah sounds during certain moments, the voice he uses for Zev that is all Alpha, dear heaven....
Enough said! You're reading this review because you like gay romance, so you will almost certainly love this book. Gorgeous, sexy, angsty, and very, very good. Forget about food and sleep. You won't be needing those, at least not for the next 7 or so hours. Five star, recommended!
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 t..Show More »o 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.
