A biphobic cliched disappointment

This book was a mess of secretly gay, homophobic parent, childhood messed me up, regurgitation of coming out cliches nobody needed. Phoenix is described with a bisexual past but that’s dismissed as him just hiding from being gay—as with most biphobic stories. His struggle is tired and uninspired and adds nothing interesting to the world. The narrator’s inconsistent and inexplicable accent choices made it so much worse. If I didn’t have OCD I never would have bothered to finish the last few books with her, let alone this disappointing mess.

TOO SHORT

i LIKE THIS SERIES BUT THIS BOOK WAS VERY SHORT AND NOT MUCH DEVELOPMENT COMPARED TO THE FIRST ONES. NARRATOR WAS FINE BUT LIKE KIRSTEN POTTER BETTER.

Exactly what I was waiting for!

If you could sum up Phoenix Reborn in three words, what would they be?

Passionate, heartbreaking, perfect.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Phoenix Reborn?

Nix and Noah at Nix's special place, both times.

Have you listened to any of Marguerite Gavin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to this entire series and though it's strange having a female narrate a majorly male cast series, she does a really good job of making sure each and every character has their own voice and tone. That is why I marked this one down just a smidge for performance. I was hoping Tyler would grab a male narrator for this story specifically since it's Nix and Noah's story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both. I absolutely love this series, and I wanted Nix and Noah's story from the first glance they shared several books back. The pain that Noah felt by being rejected by his mate was evident in the story when I read it, but Gavin really brought it home with her performance of the battle and what Noah had to do with the fire. I could feel his pain and I did shed a tear.

Any additional comments?

As I wrote above, I have followed this series from the start and I think each installment just gets better. I have to give Gavin props for not only carrying every character's voice from one book to the next without wavering, but having the ability to continually create new and different voices as the character base grows with each book.

This is a must listen series to anyone that likes shifter series, paranormal romance, strong female characters that can keep up with their male counterparts and something fresh and new with each new book in the series. I am partial to gay romance, so this would be my favorite in the series. That being said, if you don't normally read MM storylines, I think you'll be okay with this one as it's done tastefully and it fits in the series well.

Up the Butt...

This author is absolutely amazing. This whole series of books has been awesome. This one particular book is not for everyone's taste. It is nice that the author attempted to make a book that would cater to a particular crowd. However, as much as you need to imagine what is going on in a story when reading a book, or having it read to you, there are some images that I definitely just about never have in my mind and would prefer not to. I'm so glad there are different types of people and I completely understand the love between two people is sacred no matter what. I think I would prefer not to have some of these images in my head even knowing it does happen and exists. Had I known the detail of front I might have skipped this particular book in the series.

Beautiful story

This book was short and to the point. The fact that this book was about two male lovers was very interesting and made me love their story even more.

Very Good addition

This is a story about an alpha male learning to accept who he is. It only continues the bad guy story arc a little. It's main purpose is to end Phoenix's struggle with himself and to accept Noah as his mate. I thought how the author told this story was well done. The only disappointment was the book did not mention the stranger that appeared at the end of Chase the Darkness. That did confuse me a little as to WHEN this short story occurred. But maybe that will be clarified in the next book. It is very short but the author tells you this by making it a .5, which generally means a novella instead of full length novel. I do believe more can have been added to the story but I do not believe more was necessarily needed. J.D. Tyler told how Phoenix and Noah became mates. That was a plot cliffhanger that I am glad has had a wonderful closure. I just hope before series ends, we hear that Noah and Phoenix become parents. Noah is too loving and nurturing (important qualities for a nurse, I know) not to be a dad. And Phoenix needs the change to NOT be his father. If you like the series, are fine reading a gay romance, and want a good, quick read, I do not believe you will be disappointed. I cannot wait for the next books. I am excited to find out how John (aka Hammer) and the Vampire leader get their mate and who the next bad guy will be, And of course...Who is the mysterious man that

Lost Opportunity

This was a lost opportunity to go into the gay struggle. It’s was all cliche. But I still enjoyed it. I was just miffed that all the other books were three times as long. This one really got the short end of the stick. It is what it is. If you have enjoyed the rest of the series you’ll like this one too..

Way too short

I wish there the author would have expanded more on their love story. so much teasing from the previous books that this story didn't live up to expectations. love Noah and Phoenix!
