I read the first book and remember these characters, so I was pleasantly surprised to see that they got their own stand-alone book. the fact that I read the first book and then to audible I wasn't prepared for the Dual naratiors. when Matt was narrating I was totally fine with it but with no is my rating I felt like he was rushed, and I didn't necessarily care for it.
The story itself was pretty good, I could get into both characters mine said and feel their struggles.
and the sex was pretty good.
I would recommend all the books in the series and I'll definitely listen to the next one.

 Quinn Monahan and Grayson Page have been friends since high school. Despite their differences, they’ve been there for each other through thick and thin. Opening Last Call together, a bar tucked away in the small town of Heartsville, PA, seemed a natural progression - even if it makes it harder to live with the secret longing they’ve always had for each other.

A twisted act of cruelty and prejudice drives Billy Joe from his Mississippi home, and he makes it as far as Pennsylvania - where his car breaks down just as the year’s first snowstorm blows in. Fortunately, Carlos is there to lend a hand. Carlos is no stranger to hardship. His family rejected him for being gay, but with determination, he put himself through school and became a librarian. Carlos sees the same willpower in Billy, and he wants to help Billy and his son succeed in a new life that is very different from the one they left behind.

The story itself it's good, I can appreciate how the author deals with such a sensitive topic with both care and reality. As for the narration, it wasn't that it was the worst there it's just not the best oneI have heard. nothing irks me more than an narrator pronouncing every syllable in every word, it's unnecessary.
Also he had zero emotion zero range and oftentimes when he was narrating Carlos's voice, who has Spanish backgrounds, it sound like he was trying to be Italian.
if you don't care about poor audible think it it if you do care about it I would just read the book.

Relationships are complex. Love is ever-changing. And when it comes to rules of the heart, they were made to be broken. That's what Robert Antonio Bianchi was telling himself, anyway. Otherwise, he really had no excuse for what - or who - he'd done. If there was a bad decision to be made, Robbie always had a knack for making it. And thus, begins the story of the priest, the princess, and the prick.

I got this book because all the reviews said it was such a great story, and that they love these men. I found that there was no real plot and there was no anguish. The whole story took place in a week, which made it so unrealistic. Two successful men want to take on this young twink who seems to have no real life ambition? I don't buy that, but again there was no real plot.
As for the narration; I've heard him do other books in the genre and he does a really good job at it, but for some reason I just didn't care for it this time around. as for the French pronunciation, some of them were spot-on and some of them he was way off. I kept hearing "uncle" and that's not what he was saying.

First can we talk about how Wyoming was pronounced! Second, who marries a man after you've only known each other a month and in thr Heat of the Moment and think it's going to last forever!
And lastly, these men were immature and the sex was not even that hot.
I did not finished and I return it. I don't think I'll get anything else by this author and I'm slightly disappointed in Michael Pauly.

I'm not a fighter. I never was. So how do I make the one man who might just be worth fighting for see that? At 25 years old, Ford Cornell should have his whole life ahead of him but instead, the would-be artist is drowning in denial and just trying to get through each day. And the boy who once believed life was about following impossible dreams has finally come to accept that it's really only about surviving a living nightmare...one of his own making. But the bruises are becoming harder to hide. So is the truth...

I loved the previous 2 books in this series, but I can't say the same about this one.
I find it hard to believe that after all that happened to Ford, once he left his mom's house he was "all better". Abuse is any form takes a long time to heal (with the proper tools). The whole story(s) (there were way to many subplots) seemd a bit farfetched.
Also, I like Michale Pauley but I hate how he only does 2 male voice, the "strong" male voice and the "effeminate" male voice. I'm sorry but I don't believe Ford would sound like that in real life. You can't describe this "big Burly" man but give him this soft feminine voice. I've noticed he does that with all his narrations and it kind of frustrating to me. Two men in a gay relationship can both sound "manly".
I would not recommend this book.

I don't need anyone's protection. I'm fine. But to appease my sister after a home invasion, I agree to take self-defense lessons. They just so happen to be with a big, muscled former navy SEAL who may or may not be everything I've always daydreamed about but never thought I could have. And he's dead set on looking out for me even when things in my life suddenly get complicated. Between the increasing threats against me and pressure from my wealthy family to be someone I'm not, I'm having a hard time keeping it together.

there are several things wrong with this book. I am normally a huge fan of Lucy and Michael but this book fell flat for me. if you listen to one Michael narration you've listen to them all.
First, who was that supposed to be on the cover, beefy Saint or skinny Auggie? I know sex sells but at least make the person on the cover look like one of the people in the book. When I think of Saint and the description she's given of him in all the books he's been in this image doesn't come to mind. and you can argue that everybody's images different but the guy on the cover ant' it.
my next issue, it was boring!
There were times where I felt like I was reading the exact same line over again in the book. it's almost like she just reused phrases over and over again.
and lastly if you read these books for hot sex scenes you're not going to get that here . you have to go through half of the book before you get to anything remotely resembling a sex scene.
the only saving grace it's there's a brief part about how she's going to connect this series to the maid Mirren series.
ugh, I feel so invested in the series that I have to see it all the way through the end I just hope the next one is better.

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.

the beginning of the story starts like any typical story by these two authors. but if you read or listen to any of Michael Pauly's audibles then you know what he sounds like. He has range but is very limited, he does a great job but, all his characters sound the same.
Now here comes the Epic eye-roll moment. the whole story is based around one of the main characters having a hero complex. in the scene where he walks up to a mother and her two young children and starts up the conversation with them the whole time, this would never happen. I as a mother would not engage in this depth of a conversation with a stranger I have never met while my two children are screaming. with that being said that is the premise for the next scene so I feel like that was just poor writing on their part and I expected more from them (Riley and Devon).
I hate saying this but I would not recommend this book. also side note his mom annoys the hell out of me when she walked in on her son giving him a b******.

There are two things in this world I know to be true: I have terrible taste in men, and all alphas are jerks. You’d think my own pack kicking me out would’ve been a clue to stay away from alphas. Omegas are rare. We’re smaller, weaker, can’t usually get pregnant...all valid reasons for disowning your own family, right? But it only took one night for stupidly handsome Troy Miyu to make me forget all the reasons I should’ve known better. One night to start falling for him, to realize it wasn’t just amazing chemistry we shared, but a true mate bond.

I read to book and was glad to see it on Audiable, but the narration could have been better. there were points where the emotion needed for the event was not there. also, I did not like the way he did the female voices. it's hard to find male narrators to do good female voices 😕
