Publisher's Summary

AJ: I know Dante's story better than anyone. After all, I was the one who rescued him from his homophobic, abusive father eight years ago. Since then, I've kept my distance, but when I run into him at the Marian House gala and he doesn't recognize me, I can't resist the incredible, sensitive man he's become.

I would do anything to protect Dante Marian, but what if his past keeps me from being part of his future?

Dante: Every new relationship has obstacles, it just turns out that ours involves my bumbling inexperience (ugh), an octogenarian naughty toy party (don't ask), and being on the run in an RV with Aunt Tilly (it involves the Secret Service - no, really, don't ask).

When my biological father takes his homophobic views on a national platform, the only way to stand up for what I believe in is to claim my past and confront him. So now it's time to decide: Do I put the past behind me and walk away from AJ for good? Or face my biggest fear and fight for what's mine?

Fair warning: Dante and AJ's story contains frequent detailed scenes of man parts touching, little old ladies being inappropriate (this time with, ah, props), and two hearts finding their HEA when they least expect it.

While it can also be listened to on its own, Delivering Dante is the sixth in the Made Marian series. Each audiobook tells the story of one of the Marian brothers' search for true love.

Trigger Warning: Delivering Dante includes references to domestic violence and conversion therapy.

    "Finally!!"

    I've been waiting for what feels like years for this book to be available on audio. Ever since Dante's background was somewhat described I've been impatiently awaiting his story. Since I came upon this series in audio first, I didn't want to read the book. So I waited and Waited for it to be available in audible. It was definitely worth the wait!!! Lucy Lennox has a way of making you LOL one sentence and fight back tears the next. I knew Dantes story would be a tear jerker but wow! Blue used to be my fave character but Dante stole that spot. AJ and Dante are a match made in heaven! All the past Marians and spouses make an appearance as usual. Aunt Tilly, Granny and Irene are up to their shenanigans again. Aunt Tilly gets up to even more hilarious antics then even before. Seriously folks.... GET THIS BOOK!!!! Even though it is considered a standalone it would be much better to read them in order. You will appreciate knowing the backgrounds of the rest of the characters so you can really understand the love, caring, and comedy that is in all of this series!

    "A rating..."

    My Review:
    Overall: 4.75
    Performance: 4.5
    Story: 4.75

    Wow, this was a really powerful story. I think I fall more and more in love with this series with each new book. Problem though...is Dante the last Marion?? I hope not. I'm not ready to let go of this series yet!!

    But this book is about the youngest Marion...Dante who used to be Daniel. Like all the Marion's, his backstory is pretty harsh. His preacher father was abusive and brutal. He tried conversion therapy on Dante and when that didn't work, he reverted to good, old-fashioned beatings. But Dante was saved by another kid named Angel.

    He doesn't realize it at the time, but Dante's Angel is actually AJ...and that's where the conflict in the story comes into play.

    I liked this book. Dante has some real fears and phobias that come from his time under his father's thumb. How he overcomes these in this story creates a great character arc for him. I loved getting to watch him find his inner strength to stand up for what was right.

    As always the writing was really interesting and the narration for the audiobook was spot on. I have one problem with these audiobooks...I can't walk away from them, so I always manage to finish them in record time...which isn't good for my productivity in other areas. LOL.

    I definitely recommend this one and ALL the Marion books, although each of them works as a standalone. The entire series is fabulous. I've listened to all of them on audio...also highly recommended!

    "Emotional"

    Very well performed. I always enjoyed narrations by Michael Pauley. I loved the story line very emotional at times. I think this is one of the best. However. I only gave it 3 stars because I feel all the sex took away from the story. Don't get me wrong. I love sex However there were times Dante's and AJ romps just took away from the story.

    Story
    "A Great End to the Series"
    If you could sum up Delivering Dante in three words, what would they be?

    Meant to be


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Aunt Tilley - she's just crazy and gives the book good comic relief.


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

    I have listened to many of Pauley's performances. This one is excellent just like the rest of his audiobook narrations.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Who rescued who?


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend - a sweet and hot romance!

    "Michael Pauley can do no wrong"

    It took a couple of starts with the first in the series, but I got so caught up that I had to follow it though to the end. I have come to like this family so much I hate for it to end. I'd go for books on all the other family members (beyond the 6) or where things go forward for the 6 brothers. Ms Lennox and Michael Pauley are an unbeatable combo.
