Publisher's Summary

Dean Mathews leads a normal, if boring life. His career, his home, his social life, none of it is really what he wanted for himself, but it's the life he has nonetheless. A small coincidence brings him the opportunity to take ownership of his grandfather's old farm, to bring the place under his wing and careful hand. This choice will lead him from his old life to face a host of new challenges, most of which he expected. The unforeseen comes in the form of Mikael Reed, a simple carpenter - with a few secrets. The friendship that forms between them becomes more, and eventually Mikael's secrets, and the echoes of family legends come to bear, altering Dean's once stale life, forever.

In this paranormal gay romance novel, you will be intrigued by the mysteries behind families, the secrets they keep, and what happens behind closed doors. Sometimes it's hot and sometimes it's sinister - what more can you ask for? Dean gets to do a little digging and shed some light on the things that kept his family up and go bump in the night.

Slow moving, but interesting

The narration here really ruins what could have been a much better listen. The story isn't terribly original, but the characters are pleasant and the set up....a man going back to revive the family farm...are a nice hook into the tale.

But the narration is so utterly flat, with almost no inflection or sense of character, it destroys the book. There are far too many mispronounced words (tactile is TACK-tile, not tass-ILE, for example), and is it Michael or Mikale? The story makes it clear that the carpenter's name is pronounced Mikale, but the narrator keeps switching back and forth.

This is an audio book, narration is crucial to making or breaking the story. When are authors and producers going to start actually listening to these things? It seems like part of the job to me, but maybe I'm in the minority here. A middle of the road book like this can be elevated dramatically by good narration, imo. It's time for the powers that be to start finding and grooming stronger talent.

The story is enjoyable, but not terribly dramatic or emotional. However, if you like MM paranormal romance, it's not a bad entry into the genre.

The answer for insomnia

The story itself was okay. it was okay enough to keep me company during my flight home. However, the narrator's voice is an insomniac's dream when he's not mispronouncing words - i.e. Michael & Mykal. It was as if the man and his possibly his wolf had different names. That would be feasible but...no. The narrator was simply inconsistent. Awful.

I LOVE book series. They keep the great tales going. You are afforded to really get invested in the characters. I don't know if I'll move on to the next book.

This narrator...

I'll definitely pick up the book and read it, but I only made it to the end of chapter 2 and can't go on any further. I'm sure this narrator is fine on other books (maybe) but I could NOT pay attention. It's boring. And monotonous. I still have no idea what was going on.
So, just to be clear, this isn't a rating on the book, just the audio.
Audible wouln't let me rate just the performance.
