Publisher's Summary

Detective Cashel "Cash" Godfrey is big, tattooed, and angry so people typically keep their distance. He's fresh out of the police academy, however, no one is looking to partner with the six-foot-four beast with a huge chip on his shoulder and an inability to trust. When Cash scans the orientation room he wasn't expecting to find sexy hazel eyes locked onto him. Eyes of the handsome Detective Leonidis "Leo" Day.  

Leo is charming, witty, hilariously sarcastic and the only one that can make Cash smile. He's proud, out, and one bad-ass detective.  

Together, Cash and Leo become the most revered and successful narcotics detectives Atlanta's ever seen. Able to communicate and understand each other, without even having to voice it, they quickly climb up the promotional ranks.  

When Cash saves Leo's life in a raid that turns deadly, Leo begins to see something in the big man that no one else does...something special. But Leo fears he'll never break through the impenetrable wall that protects Cash's heart.  

Contains mature themes.

This Really Is Something Special

I love this series, it's at the top of re-read list. So, imagine my excitement when Mrs. Via said she was working to put it out in audio format. I may have fangirled a little.

God and Day and two of the most entertaining and lovable characters I have ever read. They are funny, caring, compassionate and tough as nails. Not only do we get to see God and Day transition from partners are work to partners at home, we also get to ride along with some of their hilarious antics on the job. This story has it all; jokes, gun fights, closeted co-workers, and just enough of a sad backstory to balance out the story.

If ever there was a man that was made to be the voice of Detective Cashel Godfrey it was Aiden Snow. His voice is the perfect mix of deep rumbles and smooth honey. He was able to bring to life a story that I have read too many times to count and make me fall in love with it all over again. It was almost like reading it for the first time. I can't wait to see what magic he brings to Embracing His Syn.

Oh my God and Day

Oh wow the amazingness that is God and Day brought to life is absolutely perfect. These two men are absolutely badas* I love them both. They are ferocious and sweet and completely gone over one another. Their chemistry is intense and so is their instant connection. It is so much fun seeing them interact with each other and those around them. The laughs and the heartbreak is intense and their relationship is definitely goal worthy. It was so much fun listening to their story and the job that the narrator did was amazing and I can’t wait for more of these guys.

So there were too many turns

Okay, so I read this book and had to sleep on it before writing a review. I will say I enjoyed on some level about 2/3 of the book and honestly could have done without the last 2-3 chapters.

So God and Day are Detectives in Atlanta and to not contain too many if any spoilers the description of both men on their first meeting was great I felt like I got a feel for who they were and was satisfied.

however, as the book progresses and you get God's back story the book seems to move like a freight train at full speed. At this point I can tell that every argument, discord, reconciliation, love, simply everything happens just so full speed ahead.

So why 3 stars? from about the middle of the book to the end the characters simply change specifically Day and Ro both men become "twinks" and it's a sad transition from how their earlier personalities were described.

The narrator did a great job, and if your looking for a no angst HFN then this book may suit you. unfortunately this book isn't a repeat listen for me.

Oh my God & Day...a lethal combination!

Really, you can just not even worry about reading reviews. Just go listen to this book now!
I loved this book so much. It is going into my favorites category.
God and Day had a great relationship, and it wasn't even that it was love at first sight (although maybe it was)...whatever the case, they had this connection where they could just know what the other was thinking or feeling. And it wasn't insta-lust where they were going at each other from the start (which is what I prefer in my books usually). When things get rough, they find themselves facing feelings they have denied before then, And they are explosive together! Steamy, rough, and sweet--all of it. Then to add even more steaminess to their chemistry, later on in the book you get some surprises that I really didn't see coming.
Amongst all their chemistry is friendship and a close partnership at work that makes them a force to be reckoned with.
Action. Crime. Friendship. Love. Explosive chemistry.
AND great narration as always from Aiden Snow.
I really enjoyed this book and it kept my attention start to finish. Worth the money/credit.

An absolute must-listen!

You’ve just gotta love the play on Cashel Godfrey’s nickname. Having a character who goes by “God” leaves so many things open to puns and wordplay that almost every time I hear his name, the context it’s in puts a smile on my face.

From the opening scene between God and Day to the seriously racy scene between them, Ro and Johnson, I couldn’t tear myself away from this story. God and Day are both big, tough men—strong and ready to do what needs to be done to rid their city of the criminals putting drugs their streets. Individually they are both pretty fearsome, together they are an unstoppable force. When they realize that they are more than just work partners, things get hot fast-and their chemistry will light up your pages.

I got a real kick out of the exchanges between Day and Ronowski—Ro is a fantastic secondary character and his arc in this story is a great addition to the main one of God and Day’s relationship. Day can be pretty funny, and he’s a quick thinker when it comes to comebacks.

This story has lots of action, and there’s always something going on to keep your attention. The way God and Day work together, they are totally in sync with each other-like two halves of a whole. They make an excellent match, and even though at first it may seem like they might not work out together…in the end you won’t be able to imagine them not being together. As for that racy scene with the other guys? I wasn’t expecting God to go along with that, but once things got going you can see there’s more to God than you’d think…and while I know there’s others out there who were on the fence about that scene, once it really got going I was just fine with it. Okay, more than fine.

4.5 stars for Nothing Special, and I’d definitely recommend this to fans of M/M romance who like a heavy dose of action in their stories. This book is meant for readers 18+ for adult language and explicit M/M sexual content including one M/M/M/M scene. I can’t wait to read more of this series!

The narration: Aiden Snow was the perfect fit for this—his deep, booming voice was ideal not just for God but also for the other very alpha males in the story. He differentiated the voices enough to be able to tell who was speaking even without cues, and his even tone made for an enjoyable listening experience. He also did a great job injecting emotion when it was needed. If you were a fan of this story in ebook or paperback format, you're going to LOVE it in audio! 5 stars for the narration!

Unrealistic Fantasy

This book is the epitome of unrealistic romance and cheesy lines. I found myself rolling my eyes a lot but you get swept up in the story and enjoy the journey. The relationship gets a bit overdrawn and sickly sweet and the love scenes are obscene in the best way. However, I loved the narrator. Normally I wouldn't take the time on an audiobook for this but the narrator makes it worth it.

Soooooo worth the wait!

I've waited years for this series to come to audio and its perfect! 👌
Mr Snow you knocked it out of the park, I already had God's voice in my head and yours was better than the one my own imagination had created for one of my favourite characters ever. Thank you, thank you, thank you xxx

So happy to see this on Audible

I loved this book with the exception of the foursome section, which I intensely disliked having read the book.

I really like the narrator's voice and hopefully he will record the rest of the series. I'm hoping that the next 5 will be released quickly.

Perfection!

The minute I read this book I hoped it would eventually be released on audio and here it is at long last and boy was it worth the wait!
Detectives Leonidis (Leo) Day and his partner Cashel Godfrey (God), have been working together for nearly five years and are a force to be reckoned with working to rid the streets of drugs, when they realise they mean much more to each other.
God has a heartbreaking past but with the love and support of Day can they survive the emotional journey?
The sex scenes are so hot but also sexy and tender at times.
Aiden Snow did a fantastic job narrating which, his voice is perfect for God, deep and gruff, and his narrating of the sex scenes was as sexy as hell 😍

True Love-Rubbish!

It's little wonder gay men are often maligned when they are represented by stories like this! A great story ruined!
