Preston Tierney, the omega son of a prominent senator, has been taken by a secret group with an ax to grind. Party boy Preston was just out looking for a good time until he was grabbed - plucked right from a party in the middle of a crowd. When he wakes up, he finds himself caged like an animal in a remote cabin far from home.

I want to preface this by saying I've read Susi Hawke before and enjoyed her - but this needed an editor. Multiple overused cliche phrases made her MCs look "dumb and dumber" The narrator was a boring monotone. I DNF at 30%

The bad guy was pretty obvious from about 30% in but as its a love story, not a criminal mastermind novel - that didnt matter. Enjoyed it right up to chapter 40 when the psychic had a completely TSTL moment followed by the cops all joining in. There didn't seem to be any attempt at rational behavior or police procedure - and this completely ruined the book for me. So annoying because as i said it was doing well up to that point.

Eli may only be 30, but he has had enough of pretend submissives. When he spies Jarod in a BDSM club, everything about the man screams submission. So what if Jarod is probably 20 years older than Eli. What does age matter, anyway? All he can see is what he's always wanted - a sub who wants to serve.

What disappointed you about Dom of Ages?

I love this series - and i also love the narrator but i have no idea what they were thinking. Jarod sounds awful.

Would you be willing to try another one of Joel Leslie’s performances?

I have a lot of his

Any additional comments?

Joel made Jarod sound like the worst sort of caricature Brit.

Gabriel Wyatt is a big city Detective living in a small Ohio town. He expects a peaceful existence once he moves from Miami, Florida, but that’s the last thing he finds. Instead, Gabe discovers murder, mayhem, and one smart-mouthed stylist he can’t get out of his head. Josh “Jazz” Roman is a small-town business owner with big dreams and an attitude to match. He finds himself in the middle of a case that brings the dreamy detective to the front door of his Curl Up and Dye salon. Josh learns that the biggest threat to him isn’t a killer; it’s a man who wants something from him that he vowed to never give again - his heart.

I have all this series on kindle and i hesitated to see if Nick Russo could do an British voice, but he was really great. Looking at what else he has recorded because of this series.
