Bax is desperate. Recently widowed, he takes his pups and flees his pack to avoid a new mate who wants him - but not his babies. At Mercy Hills, he finds the help he'd hoped for, but also a man who both attracts and unnerves him. He doesn't want another alpha mate, or even any mate, though he knows an omega has to have one. But Abel is unlike any other alpha he's ever met, and the hope that had been crushed out of him begins to grow again in the warmth of Abel's kindness and strength.

This is definitely my favorite of the series. I absolutely adore Abel and even after reading this book 3 times I had to have it on audio.

Well I have to say I’m surprised. I enjoyed this so much more than I thought I would originally and I’m extremely addicted now.

Sheriff's Deputy Clay Brown is assigned to Judge Andrew Phillips protection after the judge receives threats from a man he helped convict. Harper has escaped a secured transport injuring the Sheriff's deputies in the process and it becomes evident he has plans to hurt Andrew. Clay and Andrew haven’t exactly met under the best circumstances and each have preconceived notions about who the other man is. One thing they both have in common is their intense need for control and now that they are thrown together like this they’ll have to get past it.

Soon they find that they have much more in common than they ever realized and they aren’t really who they perceived in the beginning. They have an intense attraction that isn’t easy to deny and soon find themselves in deep. Life has a funny way of throwing things in your path though and Andrew finds himself with custody of his 4 and 7-year-old niece and nephew when his sister is hospitalized for severe depression. Now, he’s trying to hide from a crazed fugitive hell-bent on revenge, take care of his sister’s kids and navigate a new relationship.

Fire and Granite is basically a sweet romance with a touch of suspense and some fun action. It went fairly quickly and kept me quite entertained. I enjoyed listening to it while I puttered around my house doing various projects and before I even realized it was over and I was wondering who we would get to meet next time around. I hope Book 3 comes out soon.

I’d definitely recommend Fire and Granite to fans of Andrew Grey. I’m not familiar with the series that came before this but I might just have to check it out now.

While I really enjoyed the story and Sean does well for both MCs, some voices he made were not good. They reminded me of Muppets or Sesame Street characters and that drove me crazy.

Bobby McGrath's Christmas trip to the beautiful Italian island of Capri to meet his eccentric extended family offers stunning views - none more stunning than his third cousin, Paolo Mascobello, a real stocking stuffer. As the two young men embark on a relationship, Bobby, a driven law student, learns to relax and bask under the Italian moon, and Paolo realizes there's more to life than a frolic on the beach.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I honestly don't think this story will go into my favorites. It wasn't horrible but I just didn't care for it. I don't know if it was the audiobook, the instalove or if it was just the story overall. Whatever it was, it just didn't do it for me.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I listened to the audiobook so it may have clouded my judgment a tad. I really did not like the narrator's voice for Bobby and especially Paolo. Bobby just didn't sound right, almost too old. Paolo, however, sounded old and sleazy. I just about cringed every time he spoke. The mom's though, wow, they were spot on. I loved it.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

not sure
