There were some really good stories in here, but my favoriet was by Jordan Castillo Price, with Rhys Ford a close second. Really liked the trade your soul to the Devil stories and how different they all were made this collection a fun listen.
And with Greg Tremblay narrorating, it was like a cherry on top of a sunday! Love his preformanse, he got so menny voices and dialects its a delight to listen to!

I loved Snow Falling and to come back to that universe was pure joy.
I fell in love with the story and Teddy quickly found a place in my heart, his business made me smile and if he had it here I would so hire him. I have actually seen a documentary about lonely people that meet up and hug and share normal, non sexual, toutch. I think not menny realise just how menny people there is out there that are lonely. We all need a Teddy in our life. So to build this story on hugging and companionship was just brilliant. I loved the charachters, they complimented each other perfectly, and I must say I was super happy when Snow first appered. Was fun to see how he was doing after his wedding in book 1.
As I have said in menny of my reviews, I usually dont like more than one narrator, but I just love Joel Leslies and Philip Alces work. They were perfect for there charachters and I cant wait to hear more from these briliant people!
Really recommend this book!

Responsible, disciplined William Fox channeled his love for art and his faith in the rules into being an FBI Art Crimes agent. Right and wrong, justice and injustice - the differences are clear, and Will has spent his career drawing a line between them. Maybe his convictions have cost him relationships, but he’s not willing to compromise what he knows is right. Until the night he meets Amory Vaughn. As the head of his family’s philanthropic foundation, Vaughn knows very well that being rich and powerful can get him almost anything he wants.

Im not much for books with multiple narrators, but how am I supposed to resist when 2 of my absolute favorite people do it together?
I really liked the story, both Iggy and Kirt were perfect for there charachter and I really enjoyed there performance. Thou I must say I prefered Iggy Tomain this case, he just has this way of highlighting moments with his voice and since he had more chapter than Kirt Graves I found myself suprised at times when the narrator changed.
This is probably the first dual narration I have actually not hated haha! Defenately gonna listen to it again.

Two men haunted by the same ghost...Falling for "the other man" in my marriage was never part of the plan. Then again, according to Nicolae Ursache, I am the other man, and human wedding vows don't apply. Not to werewolves. Nicolae is a smug, arrogant alpha male stereotype - and I do mean alpha in the literal sense - but when the same people who killed my wife kidnap my teenage daughter, he's my only chance at getting her back. The fact that Nicolae was my wife's rightful mate means that we share a mutual interest in bringing Ellie home.

I loved this book when I read it on my kindle, probably one of my top 10 favorites. So to see Kirt Graves, my absolute favorite narrator, doing this book made my cry of happiness!
This shifter story is really well put together and I like how Jack and Nick goes from hating each other, to love so strong they would die for each other. I love the charachters and with Graves narration it just got so much better!

Aran has never truly fit in with his selkie clan. He was born in his human form, without a pelt to transform him into a sleek, strong seal. Each day he waits, left behind while his selkie family explores the deep ocean. What if his pelt never comes? Does the Moon even see him? Is he putting his clan at risk? When his mother undertakes a journey to the far north to seek help, Aran is left in the care of a reclusive human woman on remote Spindle Island. Life on land is full of more wonders - and more dangers - than Aran could have ever imagined.

Really good story, loved Aran from the start and I enjoyed following his jurney from the first chapter. In its own way its a shifter story and I love the rare kinds that arnt stuck on werewolfs.
I feelt so sorry for Aran for not having his pelt and it was fun watching him grow thru the story.
Kirby Heyborn was the perfect narrator for this book, I love his work and he read with so much feeling, making the book so much better! Really recommend this book!

Liked the story, was nice that they were hellhounds insted of the regular wolfs that pop up in most shifter stories. Made it all more interesting to listen to. The charachters were likabell and complemented each other, some of them were really funny.
Joel Leslie were great in this, wanted something new from him and this made my day!

Maddox - The reason I rarely go home is three simple words: I'm a liar. When the pressure to marry my childhood sweetheart became too much, I told her I was gay and then fled to New York like my ass was on fire. Now, five years later and after a drunken encounter, I find myself invited to her wedding. And I have to bring my boyfriend-the boyfriend who doesn't exist because I'm straight. At least, I think I am. Meeting the guy I'm bribing to be my boyfriend for the weekend makes me question everything about myself.

My first time listening to Alexander Cendese and I though I would be abel to listen to him after considering the sample, but Im sad to say his preformance was nowhere close to Iggy Tomas, so whenever it was his turn to read I just wished for it to be over. He basically just had 2 voices, the normal and old lady that all the females got. On several ocations I didnt even know what charachter were speking. His phasing was really fast so felt stressed and I can with sertanty say I wont get anything els from him. I basically got this book becouse I missed listening to an m/m romance from Iggy Toma, love his previous work and really missed it, but lately he has only relesed duals, so what a girl got do? To be honest I hate dual narrations, in 90% of the cases I cant stand the different way the narratiors read and it end up confusing me.
The story were okey, sad to say it reminded me of a couple of other stories and I hated Daimons sister, her so called "pranks" were not close to be funny and I wanted to smack her every time she opened her mouth.

Denis Egan is dead. He’s okay with that. It’s been five years since he died. Sure, there are some things about his life and how it ended he can’t quite recall, but that’s how it’s supposed to be. Remembering could prevent Denis from moving on to whatever’s next. However, something is standing in his way. His twin brother Matt can’t let go of him, and as long as the living are holding on to his memory, Denis can’t rest in peace. To uncover the truth about what happened that day five years before, Denis returns to his hometown and teams up with Matt.

I loved the story, there are a handfull of books I have read/listened to that has stayed with me long after I have finiched a book, and this is defenately one of them. The charachters were interesting and the building of the story made me listen to this book without a break in it.
Denis jurney back to earth to help solv his murder is exeptionally written and with Kirby Heyborns narration it blew my mind.
I cried rivers thru the story and I dont regret a singel tear. Im defenately gonna look for more from Tony Abbot, you got yourself a new fan!
So if you havnt gotten this one yet and want a story with intrige, humore, love and loss, I really recommend this one.

I really loved this book when I read it way back, so seeing it as an audio book made my day... exept for the fact its two narrators. I love Joel Leslies work and Philip Alces are also good but still fairely new to me, they did there parts really good in the book and since the chapters follow two pov it works, but I still dont like to listen to different reader styles and having to adjust to the charachters over and over. There is also whenever the narrators switch you have to lower/increse the sound since the tone changed with whoever reads, but it isnt to bad.
I think if they had devided the charachters among the narrators and then stuck to them even thrue the others chapters I wouldnt have minded at all, since it is pov, but ofcourse thats to much work and I have only run into that kind of narration a couple of times. More work but with a so much better result if you ask me.
Other than that this book is really good and the narrators were great. Love the charachters and the story really suck you in, you wont be abel to stop listening!
