Publisher's Summary

A Marine with honor.

After surviving a horrific chemical attack that turned him into a metahuman, Captain Jamie Callahan got a second lease on life. For three years he’s been working for the Metahuman Defense Force and leading Alpha Team - all against the wishes of his family. The job requires his full dedication, so it’s no surprise Jamie doesn’t have time for a relationship. An enticing one-night stand with a gorgeous stranger is all it takes to show Jamie exactly what he’s been missing. When a mission to take down a terrorist cell brings that same stranger back into his world, Jamie’s life gets complicated.

A soldier with secrets.

Staff Sergeant Kyle Brannigan was only looking to relieve some stress after a long mission. He didn’t know the hot guy he picked up at a bar was the leader of the MDF’s top field team. When Kyle and his partner get seconded to Alpha Team to help fight a terrorist threat, he has to balance his desire for Jamie against his duty to keep his secrets safe. That gets harder and harder to do amidst regulations both are tempted to break.

Two men trying to survive.

Giving into passion could cost both their careers. Abiding by the rules will only result in heartache. An attack on MDF headquarters brings with it a choice Jamie and Kyle can’t escape - duty, or love?

Fantastic audio!

This series is one of my favorites, and I was so excited to hear Greg was going to record the audio as he is one of my favorite narrators. And man, he knocked it out of the park! This book is an excellent start to the Metahuman Files series, and Greg brought Alpha Team to life like only he could. Each character has a distinct voice and the accents are on point (Greg's Alexei.. yes please!). I found myself unable to stop listening, even though I have read the book several times before.. and I am sure I will be listening over and over too. I hope we get to experience the rest of the series in audio in the future.

Awesome start to a new series

I loved this book. The team kind of reminds me of the Thirds in how they work together. They have all been through hell and are working to bring down all the bad guys. Loved that the team is backing them up as they grow and work on living together and finding love. Jamie and Kyle make a perfect couple. I can't wait for the next book in this series to come out in audio.

I love the entire series

They are some pretty explicit scenes if that's a problem for you. Hailey has created an intriguing world but I haven't quite figured out how they take so many showers if water is so dear.

Metahuman Files #1

Great story with interesting world building and a terrific narration, this dual POV sci-fi romance hit all the bright spots for me from the characters, to the plot, to the final moments - it was all really, really good. There was also plenty of action, both out of and in between the sheets.

Then add it being a fun listen on top of everything else and you can color me happy. Greg Tremblay, under his Greg Boudreaux pseudonym (for sexier titles), keeps a wide array of characters easy to follow along with while making all the good parts even better.

I especially loved that the story doesn't have a cliffhanger ending, even though it definitely opens up a series.

I'm really looking forward to the next book in the series, In the Ruins.

I really, really enjoyed this!

A complimentary audiobook was provided in exchange for an honest review.

To start I need to say that the sci-fi genre isn't really my thing, and while technically I don't think this wouldn't fit the parameters of science fiction, it does snuggle up to it. ;) Now, having said that, I really, really, really enjoyed this!

FYI, there was A LOT of sex which I was ready to fast forward because OMG, these guys are like bunnies; I was totally over the looooooong sex scenes, but the relationship between Kyle and Jamie was great! Insta-love for sure (which, ugh and why??) and their instant trust and bond was far fetched for me, but overall I dug their relationship.

What really sold me on this story was the level of detail and just information I was given showing me this new world. If you've read the THIRDS Series by Charlie Cochet, this is so very much of that same ilk. I couldn't get enough of these guys or the team!

The narration was so super stellar! So many accents in rapid succession is amazing! I am blown away by Greg Boudreaux's talent and can't wait to listen to the next audio productions for this series. The narration deserves 5 stars because it was just brilliant and pulled these characters together for me. There were so freakin' many voices!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, a little bit of plot synopsis. :D Jamie is a Metahuman which you could call a side effect to a chemical attack. Those who survive develop fantastical abilities such as telepathy, super strength, telekinesis, and so much more. But it's rare for a Metahuman to result from the attack and since most people end up dying, scientists have been trying to come up with a vaccine. Enter those who wish to stop a vaccine from being developed as well as those who wish to use the science for their own nefarious purposes. Jamie's team from all appearances is the TOP and they are sent in to help rescue scientists believed to be in danger due to their work.

Kyle and his brother Alexi are new to the team and Kyle is the sniper (I can't remember what role Alexi plays beyond team member). What makes things interesting is Kyle and Jamie met at a bar one night and had an amazing round of sex, something they both needed and despite being strangers felt something immediately for the other. I rolled my eyes for this part, but didn't let it deter me. When the two men discover that they are going to be working on the same team, Jamie puts a stop to any future possibilities of them getting together. Not only are they team mates would could make things weird, but Jamie is Kyle's superior, and that's a BIG grey area. But, when things during a mission go bad (big bad), Jamie can't help but think he made the wrong choice, because death is never far from their lives and he thinks he should be able to enjoy time with Kyle while he can.

Hurray! The two decide to become a thing, and with the help of their team mates, are able to hide their relationship from the Brass. But still, things are not going well in the world and the team is called in once again to take out the enemy. OMG, the situation was tense because I didn't know what was going to happen to Kyle. (view spoiler)

I give this 4.25 stars and the narration 5.

Good job! Can't wait for book 2. :)

Hardcore Porn, sprinkled with a little sci-fi.

The "Sci-fi, Meta-human" this novel is billed as, is merely fluff page filler between the extra graphic hardcore porn segments. I love a good gritty fetish porn as much as the next guy but... I never knew until now that it was possible to EXCESSIVELY overuse the word Cock. The Author used the word so much that I found myself skipping ahead so I wouldn't have to hear it beat into my ears over and over and over again.

Came for Greg Boudreaux

I am a fan of the narrator, and that's the main reason I picked up this title. I actually liked the non-romance plot of the story, and the narrator is brilliant as always. But I just got tired of all the sex scenes.

Me listening, looking at the play time in the app: Really? Another one? So they're just going to be having vigorous meta-human style sex for the next half hour?

I would listen to more of the series because the team was cool. I want stories about Katie and the others, so the author does well establishing the world. When an author introduces a team like this, I want to know about the entire team, not just the gay or straight ones. This author seems to be about the MM and not much else as she focuses on the romances of a pair of adopted brothers on the team.

If you like Greg, you know how awesome he is. If you need more than just Greg's awesome voice and want awesome content to go with it... rate your expectations accordingly to whether or not you can stand long, drawn out sex scenes that involve a lot of delayed orgasms. Wasn't my thing, but it could be yours.

Awesome start to a addictive series

I highly recommend this if you like Marvel Agents of SHEILD and lots of hot MM erotica.
I often find it difficult to identify with a lot of SciFi but the clear world building and excellent characters made this a great book I became lost in right from the start. The whole concept of a bio weapon that kills almost all it comes in contact with, with the exception of those whose DNA interacts with Splice and transforms them into Metahumans giving each survivor a unique ‘superpowers’ is not that far fetched.
Fantastic action packed scenes with great choreography between all the characters.
The relationship between the two MC’s is Incredibly hot and the sex scenes are very descriptive and intense. Some of the hottest sex scenes I have heard.
This may be the hottest audiobook I have heard but with the story to back it up and who better to narrate it than Greg Boudreaux, he makes the numerous characters identifiable and his inflection and timing is perfect.
I can’t wait for the rest of the series to arrive on audiobook
5 stars all round
