Publisher's Summary

Jin Rayne is having trouble adjusting to the new life he’s supposed to love. Instead of adapting to being the mate of tribe leader Logan Church, Jin can't get past the fact that his lover was straight before they met. He's discovered the joy in belonging to Logan but fears his new life could disappear at a moment’s notice, despite Logan's insistence that they are forever, end of story.

Jin wants to trust Logan, but that desire will be put to the test both by a rival tribe leader and by a startling revelation about Jin's existence. At stake is Jin's life and his place in the tribe. If he's going to survive to see Logan again, he'll have to release his fear and freely accept the bond, for only then can he truly trust.

    "great story sub-par performance."

    while I am familiar with not only the author but also this series, I would have to say I was disappointed with the audio version of this story. I felt that the person was reading a book but not telling a story. There wasn't enough emotion or feeling from the characters.

    "changed narrator"

    Logan can't even protect his mate. Jin has been taken so many times but never rescued by Logan. Sean Crisden was the best narrator. why did they have to change narrator.

    "This is better..."

    Wasnt a fan of how the first book was stressed thrue and badly written, so after desiding to give the series another chanse I was happily suprised. This book was so much better and the narrator did a desent job even if I would have liked some difference to the characters voices.
    Only thing that annoyed me was that they have been together for 6 months and he is STILL not sure about Logans feelings... really? You do think he would have thrown him out by now if he didnt have feelings for the guy.

    "Excellent Narration, Entertaining Sexy Story"
    What did you love best about Trusted Bond?

    Jeff Gelder is an excellent narrator. People had become accustomed to the equally excellent voice of Sean Crisden, but were unwilling to give anyone else a fair hearing. Besides, I think Crisden can sometimes sound very one note with little color in his voice--other than humor. When he is good, he's at the top of heap, but I think Gelder did a superior job with conveying a character's power.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The close relationships and intimate situations very intense and fulfilling.


    Which character – as performed by Jeff Gelder – was your favorite?

    Logan Church. His voice was rich and powerful just as one would expect from the leader of a community where domination is everything.


    If you could take any character from Trusted Bond out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Domin Thorne would be a witty and interesting dinner partner. There are hinted at depths to Domin that I would like to explore.


    Any additional comments?

    Sit back and listen to the deep mellifluous voice of Jeff Gelder charm you and entice you into a fantastic, yet frightening, world.

    "Narrator ugh! "

    I'm really not sure who told Jeff gelder to do narrations. He's robotic and pronounces all the names wrong. Sorry, but I can't stand it.

    Story
    "I don't think this performan was edited at all."

    I am totally absorbed in this story and completely taken with the talent of the author. Clearly Mary knows her characters better then I think they even now themselves (if that makes sense). It is absolutely enthralling to get sucked into such talent. Lol, not to mention I was looking for something like this to listen to thanks to anime withdrawal. I can feel the manga influences throughout the series, even if that was not the intent. For me it is like hearing it instead of seeing it. Any who, it's a very well done series.

    But my issue is with the performance. The narrator has a very pleasantly toned voice IMHO. And I liked Logan's voice a lot, that wasn't any issue. No, it was the way it was read. 1) It was so monotoned at times I could have been listening to the male equivalent of Siri. 2) When there was any inflections at all it was not an appropriate time for them to be used. This made it VERY difficult to follow along. - Now I'm pretty easy going and this in its self would not give the actor 1 (I wish it was zero stars) star, however there where some MAJOR flaws - 3) He repeated sentences that he made errors in and they where not cut from the book! Many of them. 4) He repeatedly said words wrong. Completely changing the meaning of the sentence in the process. - This got me thinking what else was he getting wrong. So I got onto whispersync and followed along with immersion reading - 5) He must have had a different book then me. That's all I can think. 6) He reworded whole sentences. Substituting, switching, and replacing words, names, and phrases. 7) He SKIPPED sentences. 8) He SKIPPED a whole paragraph. And this is just the part of the book I followed along with. This book is unabridged (I checked, repeatedly). In retrospect if there is a typo in the book then sayings something other then what is written to improve the telling of the story, I can forgive. But this is horrible.

    The verdict- Great story. Horrible performance.

    "Narrator not much better"

    I like the story. Mary Calmes is a terrific writer. It's just sad when the narrator doesn't do the story justice. I didn't like the narrator of the first book but at least he gave the characters different voices, as much as I didn't like them. But this narrator didn't give any of them different voices except maybe the women. I was confused a lot of who was talking. I've noticed this with all of Jeff Gelder's narrations.

    "Awful Reader"

    I love Mary Calmes and her books. But this reader is awful. He sounds like a robot. Chopped syllables, mispronunciation and no emotion what so ever.

    Voice!

    "Disappointing Narration"

    The book is excellent there's no doubt about that. I was really excited to see that it finally was released as an audiobook and I immediately bought it.



    What I found though was less than satisfactory. The narrator read too quickly, like he was rushing through it, and with barely enough stops in his narrations to let things sink in. Not much diversity in the voices nor the tone of voice depending on the mood the characters were in.



    Really this was a disappointment especially when compared to the first book narrated by Sean Crisden.



    Also in comparison with the first book, the terminology that Mary Calmes uses in her books for the Werepanthers, maahes, semel, reah etc, are read differently too. Don't know if they were read wrongly in the first book or in the second but it'd have been better if they were kept the same as they were in the first book so that at least there would be some sort of connection between the 2 books.

    "Good story but"

    Whilst I like the story (series) I found the narration was a bit fast at times and it could be difficult to distinguish between the characters.
