For me I don’t need the full disclosure erotica. Imagination is curtailed with continual use of this device.
Otherwise to me this series would a full five star review. The story grows and develops as do the the characters in it as the series continues on.
Other then that a fun fictional series to listen to.
And yes I have purchased al the Audible books that have come out in this series.

Greed, money, power, Godly Wrath, and political influence and infighting. Add in outrageous humor and puns.

Lee is a quiet and unassuming office worker who leads a life of solitude, comfort, and routine. Day in and day out, he shuts off his brain, keeps his head down, and goes about doing his job and minding his own business. That is, he does until a drunken god shows up randomly one day and whisks him off into another world, demanding that Lee serve as his pawn in a game between the gods. Now, trapped in a completely different world full of danger, magic, and creatures, Lee has to figure out how to stay alive long enough to make it back home.

But when Dorian discovers that the gene only expresses in people on the brink of death, her team can't help but be disappointed. Except for Dorian's protégé, who opts to poison the water supply to unearth more heroes....

Renegade Star: Publisher's Pack 2 contains books 3 and 4 of the Renegade Star series. Renegade Moon, Book 3. A Renegade never surrenders. After evading both the Union and the Sarkonian Empire, Jace and the crew are off in search of Earth. With the help of Titan, their new base of operations, Jace believes they might just have a chance. That is, if they can outrun the two armies at their backs, and somehow manage to survive a galaxy that wants them dead. Not exactly a walk in the park. But no one ever said being a Renegade was easy.

I ordered the first Audibles one and two on the recommendation of my eldest son. I was not disappointed in fact this simply set me in the path of purchasing the entire series.
As for the narration again a great match using by using Luke Daniels. He is on of my go to narrators.
There is the use of dream past memories that flesh out the hero’s past. Thus building even more understanding about his character and life decisions. Better yet this tool is not overused.
So buy Audible story pack one, the Audible Pack two.
I am purchasing Audible pack three after this write up.

This is book two in every aspect to it’s prequel “Star Fire”, which honestly seems like it should be and is book one. Again the plot line is spot on. As are the characters portrayed, they of course grow and evolve as the story continues on.
Jason Brenizer is one of the best narrators I have come across his range is so good. Simply put he sucks you into the story, making it a hard task to stop the or put down the Audible book.
This is a must read and listen to book well series really.

As usual the story references prior books plots to clarify actions and situations as they come up in this book. So to best enjoy the tale reading the first books is best.

It’s official. Fortune Redding is out of the CIA and a newly minted resident of Sinful, Louisiana. She never expected her homecoming to be all apple pie and hugs, but a murder wasn’t on her list of things to deal with before she’d even gotten her name stenciled on her mailbox. Boone Carre-Hooch, to the locals - was a drunk and a louse and had shafted pretty much everyone he’d ever done business with. So when someone kills him, there is no shortage of suspects. Unfortunately, Ally is at the top of the list.

This was an interesting story, think American corporate avenger. The hero of the story does come with some baggage. Then again don’t we all?
Well paced and the characters language was done well not forced or stilted but flowing naturally.
I would have liked to see more range with his voices and dialects.
Still it was a good audible book.
