I am complex. My love is all-encompassing. And when it comes to my heart, there is only one rule: Don’t mess with what’s mine. Until the age of seven, I was Joel Alexander Donovan, son of Jimmy. The man who terrorized a town and made its citizens fear the very ground he walked on. Including me, the day I realized that ground ran red with blood. At age 18, I became Priest. A man without a past. A man determined to right the wrongs of my father. A man who never believed anyone could love the son of such a monster.

Priest is the least verbal of this Trio - Julien and Robbie are definitely more transparent. I loved all three of these books - they were excellent - I was skeptical - it's hard to beat Logan and Tate throughout their books, but these books while different, captured some of the same affection for me. Ella is as far as I am concerned one of the premiere male male writers - a genre i've only come to love in the last few years. Logan and Tate - and their Temptation Series cannot be beat - between their growing love and chemistry - taken to the 10th power by Shannon Gunn - Through Robbie, Julien and Priest - I find Charlie David very well suited to this Trio - he does a beautiful job with them - and Ella by writing a different and yet similarly enthralling vibe to Logan and Tate. Familiarity does not breed contempt - I love the connection - between the worlds -and the continuity of the characters - it brings them firmly into focus. I've listened to the Temptation Series over and over again and i've listened to this series twice now - waiting for the final Book to come out in Audible (Ella Please!) LOVE YOUR BOOKS - And as you've probably guessed, this people are real to me - you've breathed life into them! THANK YOU!

Carrick Francis has spent most of his life jumping into trouble with both feet. The only thing saving him from prison or worse is his absolute devotion to Deacon Winters. Deacon was Crick's sanity and salvation during a miserable, abusive childhood, and Crick would do anything to stay with him forever.

This was very well done. I have to admit Bonfires & Crocus are my favorite Amy Lane books so far - but this is very good - really tough circumstances and sometimes - you can see that people do have this type of bad luck sometimes - Crick and Deacon are very endearing - and I love that they hung in there and Crick didn't change too much from the boy that left and yet he matured. I love their whole extended family. I loved Sean Crisden as a narrator - he's so great at the voices and emotion. I hope she keeps him! Amy - please keep it real and somewhat ordinary - I love to hear people finding happiness and your writing seems to have progressed and progressed. I love romance and have in the last 2 years enjoyed Gay Romance as well - they all deserve the lifetime dedicated love we all do! Thank you for your beautiful stories.

The night I twice rescued presumably straight Ethan Harris, I figured that would be the last time I saw him. However, he keeps finding his way back into my life - and into my bed. Guess he wasn't as straight as I thought. Ethan's full of surprises, though, and being bi is just one of them. As cocky as he can be, he's also sharp and witty and, even when he's being his most arrogant self, he's charming as hell. He likes to win, but so do I. However, as we get to know each other, I realize there's more to us than the games we play in and out of the bedroom.

Michael Pauley has never (unfortunately) been the narrator for me. LOVE Sean Crisden, Nick J. Russo, Joel Leslie, Greg Tremblay, Ezekial Robinson, Many others but for some reason I get turned off on a book I like when it's narrated by Michael. He just has a bit of a lilt that does not seem to fit most characters i admire. Maybe it's because I'm not gay but love these romances... but I tend to pass these books up for good reason - it just doesn't add anything to the book for me. Keep going Riley, but please - others for your narration!

At the age of 36, on the verge of completing a decade's worth of training as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. One day he was a doctor treating the dying, and the next he was a patient struggling to live. And just like that, the future he and his wife had imagined evaporated.

A book by a Doctor that is very well written, and all too real. Heart rendering, peaceful - and surprisingly low drama - all because Dr Paul Kalanithi is that way. I am sad I put this one off as long as I did - I am the better for having read it - and listened to it! Well done. Many lives will be impacted by this truth.

Lloyd Salter has OCD issues with noise and mess, and he's uncomfortable with human interaction. When his ex claimed the only thing perfect enough to live up to his standards was an android, Lloyd dismissed it. SATinc is the largest manufacturer of androids in Australia, including the Fully Compatible Units known as an A-Class 10. Their latest design is the Synthetic Human Android UNit, otherwise known as SHAUN. Shaun is compatible to Lloyd's every need; the perfect fit on an intellectual and physical basis. But Lloyd soon realizes Shaun's not like other A-Class androids.

Shattered by his lover Jason's suicide, archaeologist Dan Logan is struggling to patch his life together again. He's desperately following up Jason's final obsession, a secret buried deep within the military zone on Salisbury Plain. Anything is better than facing the void of his grief. He's convinced he'll never love again. When unexpected help arrives in the form of a soldier named Summer Rayne, the last thing Dan could have predicted is the spark of attraction between them.

High school principal “Larx” Larkin was pretty sure he’d hit the jackpot when Deputy Sheriff Aaron George moved in with him, merging their two families as seamlessly as the chaos around them could possibly allow. But when Larx’s pregnant daughter comes home unexpectedly and two of Larx’s students are put in danger, their tentative beginning comes crashing down around their ears.

They are like a warm cozy all-inclusive blanket. Thanks Amy - and please, please do not change narrators, Nick Russo has these two nailed!

Ehd's a caveman living on his own in a harsh wilderness. He's strong and intelligent but completely alone. When he finds a beautiful, young woman in his pit trap, it's obvious to him that she is meant to be his mate. Elizabeth doesn't know where she is or exactly how she got there. She's not at all interested in Ehd's primitive advances, and she just can't seem to get him to listen. No matter what she tries, getting her point across to this primitive but beautiful man is a constant - and often hilarious - struggle.

I won't forget this one - I listened to it twice and probably will read the kindle version too. Perfectly done - and kind of a fated meeting - There was nothing crazy about this - though some might find it far out - I think Shay really led us down a great path - in some ways this reminded me of the Enchanted Life of Adam Hope - and I'm going to get the physical book so it will reside alongside this book as one of my treasures - very different - poignant - memorable - I couldn't quit listening - I suggest you give this a chance - you won't regret it - I was afraid it would not be all as promised - but it certainly was. Ehd and Beh have to transcend all kinds of obstacles as language is a fairly permanent barrier - both are perceptive and intelligent. Ehd will do anything to cherish and keep his beloved Beh and their relationship is joyous and sweet - with some unexpected twists. I loved it! Bring it on Shay! I'll take more - thank you thank you for the lovely epilogue! Chris was the perfect narrator.

Moving from a Texas ranch to an Australian Outback station was a life-changing decision for Travis Craig. Though it wasn’t really a decision at all. Something in his bones told him to go, though he had no clue as to why. Until he met Sutton Station’s owner, Charlie. Loving Charlie shouldn’t have been easy. The man was stubborn and riddled with crippling self-doubt. No, it shouldn’t have been easy at all. Yet somehow, falling in love with Charlie was the easiest thing in the world.

NR Walker really gave us the ultimate M/M couple with Charlie and Trav. These two especially - and all of her Sutton characters have so much heart and soul. This book gave me a window into the world of a true and loving gay couple. We have a beautiful and poignant view into the lives and hearts of these two - and I will never forget them. I've had this audible book for a while - because when I read this series - there weren't audio books (and I think I read the series 3 X!). Now, I'm thinking I'll be listening to the Audibles again and again. I am Thanking NR here for making this happen!!!! Anyway, Joel Leslie has these two down and the emotion he evokes with NR's words - won't be soon forgotten, it makes me laugh, it makes me cry - and you'd love to know these guys. This is the kind of love that the soul craves - and these two deserve. I find them so memorable. Thanks NRW for giving us this gift!

Greyson Ratcliffe. I met him at 16, the hot new guy sitting on my jetty, an aspiring artist just passing through. He was my first kiss and my first love. I wanted forever with him. I didn't even get a year. Five years later, I'm a budding writer who scripts stories of love and struggle, the good and the bad and the ups and the downs. He's a star on the rise - his wicked talent and crazy good looks have his face plastered on countless magazines. We move in two different worlds and still our paths cross again. We're older and wiser and as crazy about each other as we were as teenagers.
