The rings have been selected.
The champagne placed on ice.
The cake decorated.

And the pre-wedding sex is off the charts....

Lucas Vallois and Andrei Hadeon are finally ready to walk down the aisle. There’s just one small problem.

A ghost from Lucas' past shows up days before the wedding, desperate for help. Against his better judgement, Lucas and his best friend, Ashton Frost, plan a fast trip back to the one place they swore they’d never go: their hometown in Oklahoma. But the danger is worse than they expected.

Now, they’re in a race to track down a killer, keep a young girl safe, and get Lucas back in time to say, "I do."

sexy, suspenseful and witty

I highly suggest headphones when you listen to this it is NSFW or small ears. I made the mistake of turning it on without checking my earphones were connected. My 13-year-old grandson setting in the same room an…. well let’s say Lucas and Andrei were in the throws of passion. Embarrassment and explaining to a thirteen-year-old the best I could why and what Mimi was listening to, this story was awesome. I think it may be my favorite so far if I must choose a favorite in this series. We get a lot of Lucas and Snow’s past. Ghosts that come back to haunt them and why they are as tight as they are. We also meet Lucas’s sister and niece he didn’t know he had. As usual the storyline is interesting, there are a couple fabulous plots, the romance of the up-coming wedding, the wonder if it will happen or they wont make it back in time, the family dram in both snow and Lucas, then the suspenseful plot that drew Lucas and snow back to their hometown. Of course there is danger, funny codenames, and hot man-sex. You do need to read this series in order but hey, it’s worth it.
Kenneth Obi stepped up his performance in this one as well. His already stellar narration was even better with the action, sighing speaking in breathless tones when it warranted it was like listening to an action movie. And Lucas sexy voice is to die for. Well-done to the authors and Kenneth as well!

Amazing

Loved how this one went. I was so worried about Lucas and Ashton going back home, but the gang came through and the Wedding went ahead. Andrei and Lucas are an amazing couple

Truly moving and wonderful!

This book was so emotional and wonderful! I know that sounds cheesy, but it gives heart to two main characters from the entire series. We see Lucas and Snow back in their hometown. We get explanations of how their background influences their lives. Between the words that Drake and Elliott gave us and Obi’s fantastic narration easily 5 stars all the way around. I think it might be some of Obi’s best work- and I really enjoy his narration. Will definitely listen to it again!

Amazing

Amazing!!!! I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed this, it was everything I've wanted for Lucas and Andrei. A connection that's unstoppable and emotional, truly moving in so many ways (and don't forget sexy and hot you'll blush too). Kenneth Obi was fantastic with this series and each gets better and better. I love how each of these guys personalities pop. Fun, sexy and emotional mixed with action that's intense! Can't wait for the next.

Best one yet

I think this might be my favourite book in this series to date. It was heartfelt, filled with all kinds of emotions. I'm also kind of a sucker for stories where characters go back to deal with stuff from their past and find healing in it.

Lucas and Andrei are planning for their wedding that’s only a couple of weeks away. Plans are made and re-made as are the seating charts. Come hell or high water Lucas and Andrei are walking down that isle this time. There won’t be anything that can stop them, no postponing, they will be getting married. So of course there will be a hiccup in their plans when they get an unexpected visitor; Lucas’ sister Nicole. A sister he hasn’t spoken to since he left his hometown many, many years ago. She’s begging for his help with her daughter; Lucas’ niece, whom she fears might be in trouble. And a visit from an idolised uncle might persuade her to open up.

Lucas reluctantly agrees to return to his hometown for a day to talk with Taylor, hoping to find out what troubled the teenager. But he doesn’t go alone, his best friend Snow goes with him and he’s even more reluctant to return to the town that treated them so badly. Their quick day-trip goes down the drain when they arrive to find Taylor missing and more danger they ever planned on.

All of the guys are fiercely stubborn and protective of each other. Those bonds have been there from the beginning, and it makes them so special. They are unwavering and constant, no matter what these guys are there for each other. Theirs are bonds that transcends friendship or family. I also loved how fiercely protective the guys were of Taylor, how immediate it was. That they had healed enough from their past to be able to open up to her, to include her.

Kenneth Obi’s performance of this book was great. He’s found his calling (I hope, because I for sure would hate to see him stop narrating books). I know that when I pick up a book by him it will be great, he will take me on a journey that I don’t want to end. He will make me feel. For some reason, Taylor's phone calls stood out to me narration-wise. I mean Obi really captured the fear in Taylor’s voice, the need to protect her mother. He also captured her independence and determination to get to the bottom of things and get to the truth.

Of course, Taylor wasn’t the only one he captured, there are also all of the men. He captured the love between our guys, all of the guys. The love of family, but also the bone deep romantic love they shared. How well they knew each other – like when Andrei could tell Lucas was on painkillers only by the way he acted on a phone call. The love between them poured from my earbuds every time they interacted, and it was wonderful to see them married in the end. They truly deserved it.

A copy of this book was generously provided by the authors in exchange for an honest review for Love Bytes.

they can't do anything easy!

Did the story keep me engaged: yes
Were there any parts I found annoying: no
Did I feel an emotional connection to the characters: yes
Would I listen to it again: yes

Good pace, lots of the usual action and drama as can be expected from this series. I liked that we get more background on Lucas and Snow and the amount of chaos that happens before the guys make the wedding is amazing!

Kenneth Obi does a good job managing the continuity of characters. All the personalities and emotion are there making this a vocal performance over just pure narration.

Wonderful

I love this series. Jocelynn Drake and Rinda Elliott write such intricately woven series. This is Book 5 and as we get ready for Lucas and Andre are all set to be married but first the drama and action that we love must come first. What a great job Kenneth Obi has done. I really love how he has so many voices available to use. Well done.

Excellent

It was great to be back with the boys and whilst I was thinking it was just going to be about the wedding, boy is it so much more. great action, great scene setting, great characters. As usual Ken delivers a dynamic narration that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Absolutely brilliant

Kenneth did his best in such a great story

Loved the story... great continuation of a super story. Kenneth did another great job in telling the story! I don't know how it manages to keep all the characters so different. Loved it!

as great as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. Kenneth Obi is one of the top 5 narrators (so far) for me, I can listen without break and have no problems to follow. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B
