When Dom was first tasked with watching over his friend’s father, he didn’t expect to fall so hard for the gorgeous silver fox. But Abe is interested in friendship only. He’s at a point in his life where he wants something permanent, not a romp with the sexy redhead who happens to be the same age as his son. But Abe finds himself drawn deeper into Dom’s life when cryptic messages start appearing - ones that frighten the skilled security specialist.

AMAZING! Another great add to the series. We all have come to love Dominic from previous books and we finally get more about him and his crazy past. Dominic is the fun carefree bodyguard always with a smile on his face. Abe is a older man who has experienced loss and heartbreak, scared to let himself have what he really wants; men. I loved the narration by Kenneth Obi who took these two different characters and brought them to life. The tone and flow is perfect for this series and will quickly become your favorite.

I might be into guys. Do you have any idea how terrifying that is? I've already run halfway across the country to get away from my abusive parents, and I really want to experiment, but I can't even hook up without scaring myself away. I might look confident on the outside, but this is tearing me apart. Then my new roomie wins a trip for two to a gay resort in Hawaii. Darren wants to show his clueless ex that he's moved on, and I want to help out.

Another great add to this new amazing series. Nick J. Russo brings Adam and Darren's story to life, the tone and flow of his voice is a perfect fit for this book. These guys have depth and so many sides that show not only their strength but their vulnerability. E. Davies always gives the perfect mix of sweet and sexy that leaves you wanting the book to never end, adding in Nick J. Russo and I want to dive right back in.

Zoo vet Blane Winters' grumpy attitude and muscles hide a romantic heart. He only relaxes when he's around animals, since he likes them more than people. He has some friends, a good job, and a place of his own, and he's sure that's all he needs. Until he meets a certain incessantly cheerful artist.

This is a first for me with narrator Greg Boudreaux, the tone of voice and flow work really well with this story. Blane is a vet and a romantic at heart, there's nothing is sexier then a guy who loves animals. Falcon's a artist who is sassy and blunt, but broken waiting for someone to heal him while he tries to heal himself. This book has great moments, best friend moments, stupid ex-boyfriend moments, and more adorable Significant Brothers moments that are brought to life perfectly with this audio. Can't wait for the next.

Angel's brother, Isaac, has returned home, and the pair begins to make slow and awkward attempts back to each other. Learning how to be a brother to a grown man instead of a parental figure has Angel adjusting his behaviors and habits, and Isaac still remains a mystery. Was it merely entering adulthood that turned Isaac away from an overprotective Angel, or does Isaac carry a secret that will keep them from finally being a real family?

Awesome add to the series. Another great voice experience with Joel Leslie, great flow and tone for these characters. Each of these characters pop out as individuals. We basically start off right where we left off. I love this series even more with each new book and character, it feels like the sky is the limit on where they could go and cases to solve. While Angel and Simeon get closer we also get to know Daniel and Issac more. With mysterious Vampire Master stealing a few scenes you couldn't ask for more. The short bonus story at the end was great as well. Can't wait for the next audio.

They say time heals all wounds, but it's been five years since my boyfriend died, and I haven't dated since. I threw myself into architecture, and thankfully, there's just no time to wallow or look for love. My friends push me to get back out there, but I'm not ready to be vulnerable again. Then I meet Kev. He dresses like a catalog model, but he talks like he's got an old soul. He shows me what I'm missing but holds his own heart just out of reach. I can't stop falling for him, and he might be worth taking a risk for. Can I believe in myself enough to win his trust and his heart?

Awesome start to a new series by E. Davies. I couldn't wait to start this new adventure and just based on the awesome cover I was excited for more knowing I was going to love it. These characters are so well written, have depth and make you open yourself up to new ideas and views about people. First Audio book for me that's narrated by Nick J. Russo and I was very happy with the results. The chapters flowed into one another and I felt drawn into the story by the amazing voice being these characters to life. Can't wait for the next.

Moving to the suburbs of L.A. was supposed to give Nic Montero a fresh start. After escaping his family, coming out as a gay trans man, and excelling in computer programming out of desperation to get financially stable or die, everything should be easy. But joining gay culture now, post-transition, feels impossible...until he runs into the force of nature that is Kyle. Everything Nic isn't, Kyle embodies. Green hair, garters and cut-off shorts, sports jerseys, and all, brash Kyle is the most gorgeous man he's ever laid eyes on, and he pulls Nic headlong into the center of his world. If only Nic felt like enough for a man like Kyle.

Another great Michael Pauley experience! One of my favorite voices bring to life one of my favorite couples in this series. Landon and Micah we've seen since book one, and kinda already feel like we know them some. We get some past-background scenes from when these two meet, because their story started out definitely in a few moments before the start of this book. Can't wait for the next.

Awesome add to the series. I cannot say enough about how much I love this new series, Drake and Elliott have done it again and you won't be disappointed. Kenneth Obi brings these two to life, voice flows well with the characters and story. I loved Quinn from the second we met him briefly before (am a sucker for a nerd in glasses) and knew his nerdy gamer self would become my favorite. Shane is just as playful and sexy as you would expect from a good guy. Their were twist and turns that had me guessing, filled with laughs, and old favorites popping up. Loved the action and suspenseful moments. These two guys connection to each other takes on a life of it's own, just wow! You can feel the chemistry and want to know more. I didn't want it to end at all, I need more Quinn. Can't wait for the next.

Awesome start to the series! Fell in love with Giovanni and Caleb right off the bat! You'll be addicted and want to read the next book right after it! Michael Pauley is perfect with this, each scene flows together and gets you catch up in his voice. With Gio beginning a little broken and scared to start again, and Caleb all heart and sweet you'll want to listen to this more then once. These two together are adorable and hot all at the same time. I love all the side characters and can't wait to see their stories.

Besides his family, music had always been the most important thing in Carter Greene's life. Having a career in music was everything he had ever dreamed of. That was until the terrible night when he nearly lost everything. Carter can't get the image of one particular man out of his mind; the man who found him in his darkest moment. The one who risked everything to save him and the same person who most likely never wants to speak to him again.

I love Michael Pauley, clear voice and enjoyable to listen to. Great way to have my favorite characters come to life. If you're new to Audio this is definitely the one for you. Carter and Ryan and definitely different from the couple in book one, in the best way. I feel in love with Carter from before and couldn't wait to see how his story ended! Loved the music scenes and the band mates! A few twist I didn't see coming too. Each book adds to the universe and I can't wait for the next!
