Publisher's summary

Jacob "Yasha"" Livingston is having a bad day. First there is the head cold. Then the orgy, the fight, and the hospital. Between that and the bus driver who ejects him - after accusing him of transmitting the Swine Flu - the rest of his day seems fairly vague. Now he's stuck in a small town called Santo Ignacio and he has a whole lot of thinking to do. One thing is, when fate speaks in the form of an EMT, maybe it's time to listen. 

One man in particular, EMT Jason "JT" Lents, with his shy smile and jade green eyes, seems more like an angel than a paramedic. But Jason has a date with a newer, prettier girl every night, despite the fact that he seems to return Yasha's interest. What will make JT happy? If JT is afraid of his feelings it might be Yasha's chance to heal the healer. For this couple to find their way, it's up to Jacob, his new friends, and the magic of St. Nacho's. 

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some listeners may find objectionable: Male/male sexual practices.

revenge porn is not funny

I was really enjoying the story right up until the revenge porn. yes please divorce your cheating wife, but there's never ever a good reason to post pornographic videos of someone without their consent. especially considering he was also cheating on her. it wasn't necessary or relevant to the plot besides to make characters we're supposed to like look like garbage.

Book 3 was SPECTACULAR

The 3rd installment of St. Nachos was GREAT. I mean from the domestic violence that was talked about within both the LGBTQ+ Community as well as the straight Community. the unexpected twists and turns of events and especially a secret that was held on to for years that was fi ally revealed. I can't wait to start the Book Of Daniel I'm excited to see what happens next

If a narrators voice may put you off, choose wisely

DO NOT BASE YOUR DECISION ONLY ON MY REVIEW:


I was excited to listen to this book. Then the narrator started talking. I just couldn’t. Wasn’t my kind of voice to hear. But that was just my singular opinion. If I had done research into the narrator and what he sounded like then I would have for sure picked something else to spend the credit(s) on.

My favorite book in my favorite series

I loved this book. I love St. Nacho’s, all the people that live there. The relationship between Jacob and J.T. Had some unique aspects to it that added interest. I nearly read it straight through. And Jacob’s reestablished relationship with his brother was so moving. I reread chapter 21 twice. Narration was excellent.

Spoiler alert: The Fireman wears red suspenders

The story is engaging throughout, with several highpoints of both narrative and descriptive excellence. It seems that the the accident sequence may speak of experience.

Each character has dimension and purpose, and the settings are drawn to provide real presence for the action to take place in.

I understand another reviewer's discomfort with the revenge porn scene, which did leave a disturbed senseibility clinging to the character involved.

The naration has variety, cadence and suitability to the text, though it sometimes dragged the pace. I enjoyed the dramatic interpretation.

The Town continues to attract new lovers

A good follow up to book 2. Not quite as engaging, but begs for book 4.

I Tried!

I started with this book first for some reason. I think I may have enjoyed the story but the narration is so bad, it’s impossible to follow. This narrator is so boring and monotone and no wonder the hero has such boy trouble. Even the sex was dreadful!

Awesome

This is one of my favorite books. I go back to it and the other books in the series when I need some love. This is a standalone book and is funny and has some tough parts but is overall a joyfully enjoyable book.
