Publisher's Summary

Mingo McCloud, Honolulu’s hottest - well, only - forensic accountant, has an amazing career working on the Hawaiian Islands’ high-profile criminal cases. Too bad, he can’t finesse his private life with the same panache. 

His chronic attraction to bad guys comes to a skidding halt, when he meets Francois Aumary, a former green beret, and man of many secrets. Currently working for the governor’s office, Francois’s past life includes a pre-teen son, Ferric, who, like his father, becomes a major part of Mingo’s life.

Meanwhile, as Mingo handles missing and murdered people’s cases, his life takes bizarre turns. From a woman from his past claiming they were once married, there’s his mother, whose taste in men is worse than Mingo’s. Her new beau thinks he’s the lost king of Hawaii, and will stop at nothing to reclaim his throne. There’s also her mania for avocado green kitchen gadgets, and her garish, animal-print outfits.

Then, there’s the attorney Mingo works for: Benny Leonard, Korean by birth, and now a devout, Orthodox Jew. Thanks to his adoptive parents, Benny is plain nuts.

Weaving in and out of his and Mingo’s lives is a man who may just be the worst thing on two legs. Kaolin Grace does terrible things to both of them, even giving Mingo and Francois a felonious gift on their wedding day.

But that’s not all. Ferric is anxious for his two dads to get hitched, and worried that things like a haunted bridge, crazy criminal cases, and his mom wanting custody of him again might put a damper on things. As for Mingo, he’ll do whatever it takes to have a happy life, and a future without yucky green accessories.

A Smoking🔥Hot Bundle of Mingo Fun & Shenanigans!

This smoking hot bundle contains the first four books of A.J. Llewellyn’s Mingo McCloud series, “Wanted”, “Needed”, “Bonded”, and “Mated” it also includes “Hula” a bonus story that was part of a multi-author anthology. This book grabbed my attention right from the start and captivated it the entire book. Mingo McCloud, a forensic accountant, gets caught up in different cases, the first one being a domestic incident with a missing wife and the evidence originally pointed to the husband, but Mingo does his thing and finds proof that leads him elsewhere. Besides, that storyline is his new love interest, the first after his breakup with his cheating ex, Kaolin. But even that goes sideways for him and his friend Francois comes to his aid. Both Mingo and Francois are interesting characters, there is a lot of depth to them and it was great to watch their relationship grow as the series went on, it was also great to learn more about Francois and his mysterious past. This bundle is a great way to binge on this series and join Mingo and Francois as they investigate cases, find themselves in deep trouble, and still find time, lots of time, to burn up the sheets with their sexy shenanigans. There are lots of great secondary characters and some not so great, yeah Kaolin, meaning you. These books are best enjoyed in order, each one is entertaining with plenty of drama, a touch of angst, some humor, mystery, thrilling suspense, heartfelt emotions, and the steamy romance. A.J. Llewellyn, thank you for these great stories!

🎧📚🎧 And for the amazing narration, John Solo is a fabulously talented narrator and a versatile voice artist. He had a complete understanding of the characters he portrayed, gave each a voice that was a perfect fit for that character’s persona, sounding believable in every role he played and just as I pictured the characters to sound. His character voices were spot on for every character and he was consistent with them though out the series. He set the perfect tone for the story, captured all the characters’ emotions and projected them into his performance. John Solo is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to, his narration enhances the story to another level. Thank you for another exceptional listen.

John Solo does amazing, but WHAT is this story?

I just struggled so much with this story. It felt like Jason had borderline personality disorder or something. His flip-flopping from being horrible and then apologizing and Mingo just forgiving him even though he is suspicious of him. I feel really bad leaving negative reviews, but I just couldn't with this.

John Solo, as always, did an amazing job. I always enjoy listening to him even when the story just isn't it for me.

Nonstop Action

Nonstop action throughout (yes, that kind too). One of the best series I've listened to with likable characters and realistic plot. Keeps your interest from beginning to end, I listened to this in 2 days. Narration excellent as usual by John who brings the characters to life with depth and emotion. Will be looking out for the rest of this series on Audible. Highly recommend!

4 crazy short stories with lots of $ex

Lots and lots of $ex with part of a suspense plot thrown in.

The narration was great - John Solo is a pro.

Lots of twists and turns

This book surprised me in so many ways, I thought I knew what was going to happen but then the story took off in another way. Sometimes it got better, but there was at least one instance where I'd wanted it to go another way, though it all turned out right in the end. The book starts with a bang and there's a lot of steamy times - a lot! This didn't take away from the action though.

Mingo is very likeable and I kept rooting for him and I frequently wished that the people around him treated him better. The fact that he's a forensic accountant felt fresh and interesting, a different take om the detective genre.

I'm looking forward to more audiobooks in this series as I'm planning on listening to them.

John Solo's narration is, as always, excellent.

Cute Little Bundle

I dunno what audible classifies this as, but I wouldn't classify it as romance, but suspense with a romantic subplot? It's really cute and sweet, but a lot goes on in each book. The sex scenes are more unrealistic than most books, but they are super hot. It definitely feels more erotica than romance, which is exactly what you want sometimes so no complaints from me!
There is sex outside the couple but not cheating (except book 1 has cheating but not with the MCs). I would listen to next books if in a bundle since they are pretty short (especially at 2x speed which is how I listen). John Solo isn't my favorite narrator but he does a good job on these!

Mingo and Francois

I was so excited to listen this this boxset. The storylines are amazing loved the way the characters are together. This story was so hot and steamy with a storyline full of excitement from mystery to suspenseful with a little angst and drama with lots of humor and a very steamy couple. Loved it from start to finish. As always John Solo has done a stunning job with theses stories. Can’t wait to listen to more.

Mingo's Escapades!

This story was not what I was expecting. Mingo is a bit of a handful. He is kind of all over the place in these beginning books. There is a lot of suspense and romance and a Ton of Sexy Times! Just be warned Mingo and Francois also have threesomes with special agent Sage in case that is not your jam. I really loved Mingo's boyfriend Francois and his son Ferric. The narrator did a wonderful job with all the different characters voices! He kept the sexy times spicy! I will not give spoilers, but I will say it took me a while to get into everything going on, but by the end of book 4 I was happy with where the characters and relationships stood!

Hot in Hawaii

These books are steamy! If you're not into on-page sex and lots of it, I won't recommend this. For me the storyline gota little drowned in all the sex and that's a shame because it's a good mystery in every book.

Otherwise it's a fun ride getting to know Mingo, François and their crazy family and friends.

John Solo did an amazing job as usual and he's the reason I bumped it up to three stars.

I received a complementary copy of this audiobook for an honest review.

HOT, HOT, HOT and great audio performance!

I love audiobooks performed by John Solo but I’d never read a book by AJ Llewellyn, so when I was able to request a review copy of this audiobook, I jumped on it fast. 😊

This is a collection of 4 short novellas and I enjoyed all of them. Mingo McCloud is a forensic accountant and I’m pretty sure I’ve never read a book where the MC has that occupation. While I’m not sure I ever fully understood what he did as a forensic accountant, I fully enjoyed the mysteries he got involved in. However, I think what this series really is about is Mingo’s various relationships.

His ex keeps popping up and causing trouble; an attorney he works for off and on helps provide interesting cases to solve and Mingo’s forever love is a man of many talents and secrets. There is never a dull moment for Mingo and his associates.

I hope the rest of the series comes to audio because I’d love to listen to more of John Solo’s version of Mingo. I almost forgot to mention the hotness factor. While there are great stories in this collection there is also LOTS and LOTS of HOT sexy time and Mingo and Francois don’t mind the possibility of getting caught loving on each other. 😊

Four short stories in one!

If you like a lot of sexy time this won’t disappoint! There is a thread through the books and the story is ok but it is interrupted a lot…
And I would’ve liked to get to know the characters more, with their clothes on.

John makes a great job with voicing the characters.

So much fun!

Mingo & Lelani & Benny, I love all the crazy characters & crazier shenanigans they get up to, especially Mingo - so much fun & lots of heat. Each 'job' & adventure with Francois (among others) is wilder than the last! I can't wait to see how their story plays out!
John Solo does a phenomenal job with all the Hawaiian words & wild names. He makes it seem so easy to bring such wonderful stories and people to life for his listeners! Excellent!
