A former police officer turned private investigator, Nick Nowak is haunted by his abrupt departure from the department, as well as, the traumatic end of his relationship with librarian Daniel Laverty. In these three stories set in Chicago during the early eighties, Nick locates a missing young man for a mysterious client, solves a case of arson at a popular nightspot, and goes undercover to prove a dramatic suicide was actually murder.

This was interesting. It was set in the 80's, so there was a totally different attitude towards gay people, no condoms were used ever, and the word fidelity meant nothing. The MC was having sex with everyone he came across and plenty of vaseline was used!
Overall, it was entertaining and the narration was ok.

Good story, emotional, with great secondary characters. I loved seeing the guys getting their HEA, Tommy deserved it, after all angst and struggle of raising his brothers and sisters since his parents were druggies. I listened to the audiobook and I enjoyed the narration of Michael Stellman very much.

At the age of nine, Johnnie lost everything. A quiet, normal child, his life forever changed when his family was attacked by a blood-crazed vampire, leaving his parents dead and Johnnie an orphan. Now grown, he is the cold, proud, beautiful - but very human - son of the Dracula Desrosiers, who took him in after the tragedy that befell Johnnie's parents. Constantly kept apart for being human, Johnnie chooses to bury himself in the two things he most loves - books and mysteries.

Dan thinks about just driving, leaving the whole mess behind. He's got enough money. He could just arrange to get his stuff and his horse shipped to wherever he's going. Taking off is what he used to do when things got to be too much, and it worked pretty well, really.

Enjoyable story, which was developed slowly but I didn't mind. I liked the characters and the setting. The first part had a lot of drama, the rest not that much. I would have loved more sexy times and Dan's indecision made me crazy but overall this was worth spending 16 hours listening. The ending was just the beginning of the love triangle, so I can't wait to get the next audiobook.

Rod Nelson is used to being someone's good time, and that's fine with him. Spending his days at his adult toy store, Rods-N-Ends, he never knows who he'll meet. The second Landon Harrison walks in, he has Rod's full attention. It seems as if Landon wants him too, so why won't the man jump in the sack with him already?

I enjoyed it but not as much as Crossroads. I mainly listened to the audiobook but I didn't like much Rod's voice, found it too nasally and fake. I appreciated the humor, the dirty talking and some hot sex scenes, but the family drama was a bit tiring.

Rand O'Malley dreams of superstardom. He hopes to one day sing the blues like a god. Moving to New York City and hiring a new manager are steps to make his dreams a reality. But nothing moves as fast as Rand would like, and everyone has opinions, for example that he should keep certain pieces of himself quiet if he plans on making it in the Big Apple. Like his bisexuality.

This book was lovely and I enjoyed the narration.
I liked both MCs, especially Will, and I was happy with the ending. Rand got on my nerves with his choice to not tell Will certain things, especially the ones regarding Leah. Leah's part in this story was bigger than it should be and went too far. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

Sebastian Orwell did the only thing a smart wizard could do when he stumbled upon the wounded Crown Prince: He healed him and dumped him in a tavern where he could continue not being Sebastian's problem. Unfortunately, the prince isn't content with being alive, and he hunts Sebastian down to thank him personally. Not only is Sebastian stuck with the prince's unwanted affections, but he's also confronted by growing evidence linking the assassination attempt to someone from his father's past.

Some people might call Avery Babineaux a prick. He's a hedgehog shifter from an old-money Louisiana family, with a penchant for expensive shoes and a reputation for being a judgmental snob. His attitude is why he and his fated mate are estranged. Not that Avery cares. He doesn't want to be mated to some blue-collar werewolf anyway. Or so he keeps telling himself.
