Deacon Reid was born bad to the bone with no intention of changing. A lifetime of law-bending and living on the edge suits him just fine, until his baby sister dies and he finds himself raising her little girl. Staring down a family history of bad decisions and reaped consequences, Deacon cashes in everything he owns, purchases an auto shop in Half Moon Bay, and takes his niece, Zig, far away from the drug dens and murderous streets they grew up on.

What did you love best about Fish Stick Fridays?

I enjoyed the story, but honestly for me the narrator Spencer totally made the story for me. Each character got so many more layers of depth with his narration.

Any additional comments?

I've re-listened to this book several times now simply because Spencer brings the book to life. I can see each character and their reactions because of his narration.

High Lord Deandred now possesses Rand, a cocky stealth fighter who caused him no end of trouble during the war. Deandred needs to satisfy his potent lust for conquest during the truce. Conquering Rand will be just the diversion he needs. Surrendering to become a prisoner was never in Rand's service contract - especially not when he's being handed over to the super-human deviant who's been trying to catch him for years. Now he's just supposed to turn himself over?

What made the experience of listening to The Eidolon's Conquest the most enjoyable?

The story was well written and portrayed by the narrator. There was significant differences in the characters voices and you could hear the emotions.

Any additional comments?

I wasn't sure how I would like the book or narrator as it's not something I would typically pick out, but was very pleasantly surprised. The story was intriguing and the narrator really pulled you into the story. I would recommend for anyone who likes gay romance and the sci-fi genre. I will be looking to listen to more of this narrator in the future.

Would you listen to Pride and Modern Prejudice again? Why?

I would definitely listen to this book again. The story had such a great flow and the updates to the story were well thought out and realistic in this day and age.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the portrayal of Darcy in this story. Darcy is such an iconic character and this Darcy lives up the expectations.

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

Rusty gives the characters unique tones that shows the region of the story.

Any additional comments?

Only a few times did I find that the different voices of the characters slightly overlapped when moving back and forth in a conversation. Mostly this occurred when going from a male to female character.

Randy Jensen can't stand to just sit by and watch as a mysterious man throws money away on the roulette wheel, especially since Randy's got his own bet going as to the reason this guy is making every play like it's his last day on earth. The man's dark desperation hits Randy right in the gut. Half of him warns that getting involved is a sucker's bet, and the other half scrambles for a reason - any reason - to save the man's soul.

Would you consider the audio edition of Double Blind to be better than the print version?

I have listened to MANY audiobooks & most of the books read by Iggy, but this one has been edited so poorly with the audio. Many sentences are cut short or so faded you can hear it.

I absolutely loved this story and overall enjoyed the performance. There were several places though it was obvious the reader flubbed a name or sentence which was distracting
