Publisher's Summary

When you're on the run from the mob, the last thing you should do is fall in love....

Indy's become an expert at surviving.

He's survived being a mobster's lover.

He's survived a brutal attack on his life.

He's survived being on the run, on his own, his heart firmly closed.

After all, who could want him?

Until he meets former army medic Noah and his friends-with-benefits Josh.

Noah and Josh take him into their home after Indy gets hurt, and he discovers they're as broken and damaged as he is. Indy finds himself opening up to them, first with his body, then with his heart.

But how can he stay when his very presence endangers them? His ex will stop at nothing to find him....

No Filter is a steamy gay romance featuring a complicated but beautiful polyamorous relationship (no cheating!) that ends on a cliffhanger. The story continues in No Limits, the second book in the No Shame Series. Please note the trigger warnings in the front of the book.

a hat threesome

This is book one of the No Shame series and man oh man is it good. I had heard it was so good but had no idea what to expect.
I love Indy but to get the full effect of this story I highly recommend the Audio. Kenneth Obi gives Indy both his female southern voice and his real voice and that really adds to the story.
This is a story of two already broken men, that have been friends and now lovers for a long time meeting another equally broken man.
This is a sort of ménage book but in a way it's not.
If you like stories with PTSD, ex-soldiers, men on the run, complicated relationships, dealing with sexual identity, (some angst) deep love, friendship, and some smoking hot sex.

Amazing series

This series is the best. And even better on audio. Kenneth Obi has done an amazing job making these people come life.
If you are only listening to one book this year, this is the one you need.
Love this series.

Great series

I have read this whole series, but this is the first one I have listened to. The narration was great and Kenneth Obi does a great job differentiating all the voices. I am not overly fond of the Boston accent, but it did not detract at all from the story.

Honestly one of my favorites

If you're familiar with the author then you know this type of heartfelt drama is her staple. multiple people, multiple emotions, everything is intermingled, nothing is simple aside from love and hot sex, and characters that you just can't help but love to bits.

The narration it's great too! great character voices, great editing and pacing, nothing annoying, very very good with the sexy scenes and the emotional scenes.

Favorite series. highly recommend.

Wow, just wow!!!

This book just blew me away, Indie, Noah and Josh have such a complicated dynamic, but everything about it worked for me. This was clearly the start of a multi part story that is setting up to be amazing. The love between friends, the love between lovers, the sex between friends and lovers...everything about this is unusual but the way Nora wrote this story, it was just so real and so easy to understand why they needed each other, each in a different way. This was my first Kenneth Obi listen and it wont be my last. He created such distinct voices for all 3 characters and I felt all of the emotion and the passion oozing fro. his voice . I am so excited to read the next one!

Noah, Josh, & Indie

An explicit exploration of the relationship between Noah, Josh, and Indie. Did leave some unanswered questions. The narrator was great.

Loved it.

I already knew I loved the story from reading the kindle edition, and I loved hearing the characters come to life. Kenneth Obi does an excellent job of conveying emotions and differentiating between voices for the characters.

Book 1 of this amazing series.

Introduction to Noah, Indi and Josh and their complicated love. I love this series and the way Kenneth Obi makes this story even more come alive is done in an amazing way. I am very picky in narrators as some just don't do it for me. He can do so many different voices and they all strengthen the different characters. As if you are in the same room watching from the sideline and can almost touch them.

Brilliant broken characters

My heart broke for Indy. He was such a brilliant character going through everything he had at such a young age. Poor Josh with his PTSD getting Indy to the hospital Noah worked at was just what the Dr ordered. Noah and Indy are made for each other. Just hope Josh can get his HEA.

Captivating

Wow what a great start to the series. Noah, Indi and Josh’s entwined relationship is quite intense. There is so much going on. Especially as they are not really m/m/m. The relationship is too fluid and is just settling into what it’s meant to be.
As always Kenneth Obi shows his skills enlivening the story, making it captivating. Can’t wait to move on to book 2 and see what happens next.

Nice story with a HFN ending

This is the first time I have listened audio prior to reading the book, I really enjoyed it and followed the story easily.

Kenneth did a really good job of choosing the voices for the characters, including the two voices for indi. It was clear who was speaking so easy to follow,

When I read the blurb for this story I was confused as to whether it was a mm or mmm, the relationship between indi, josh and Noah is amazing and I am so happy about how it ended for now... and off to read book 2 as I need to know what happens next.

This was a really nice story although had some hard to hear elements, possible trigger for sexual abuse, glad the author didn’t go into detail. The sex scenes were good and relevant. Kenneth voice kept me engaged in the story and I really enjoyed it.

Will definitely get the next book in audio.
