Publisher's Summary

"I wouldn't be caught dead kissing you."

“Alex was always something else.” 

Bank teller Thomas Riley is the youngest of three brothers, and the only single one. That's not to say nobody's interested.... His ex, hunky Alex, is back in town and wants to see him. But Alex nearly screwed up both of his brothers' lives, and Thomas isn't willing to forgive him easily. There's no way reigniting an old flame can work...right?

“I knew we still had chemistry.”

Moving back to your hometown isn't easy when your ex moves back, too - especially the one that got away. After getting on Thomas's bad side, private detective Alex Walker is determined to at least explain himself. He's not just looking to screw Thomas again. Then, on the ski trails, Thomas falls head over heels for him...more literally than Alex hoped. How can he prove he's trustworthy to the family after spying on both of Thomas's brothers?

“Is it becoming more?”

Becoming boyfriends is risky when Thomas just wants to get ahead in life and Alex is challenging his morals and his fears. If Alex wants to catch Thomas, this time, Alex will have to keep up and change his ways for good. And can Thomas overcome his own fears to come clean to everyone? 

Swish is a steamy, stand-alone gay romance novel with a HEA ending and no cliffhanger.

Magic

Book 3 in the Riley Brothers series is about youngest brother, Thomas. He's recently moved back to town and moved next door to his brothers. Working at a local bank, there are still a number of things Thomas hasn't shared with his family. And when his ex moves back, an ex who has had run-ins with both brothers, Thomas isn't sure he likes the fact that there is still chemistry between them.

And Alex has his own issues to prove to Thomas and his brothers.

Ed Davies magical writing and Michael Pauley's amazing narration really brings this book to life!

Thomas gets his HEA!!

I have wondered about Thomas from the first time he appeared and now, we get to see his HEA. The answer to why Thomas stand in the closet is also included so we can get a better understanding of why he was not as open as his brothers. Alex is a returning character and has a lot to explain and work with to improve his relationship with not only Thomas but Thomas's brothers.

Again, Michael Pauley hits the mark with his narration and his voices for all the characters.

Another amazing E. Davies story

Here is the third installment of the Riley Brothers by E. Davies and narrated by Michael Pauley. The story is enough to make anyone swoon with the second chance romance but when you add the narration by Michael Pauley there is nothing like a story that these two can give you.

Thomas and Alex dated in high school. The relationship ended on less than friendly terms and years later when Alex and Thomas return to their home town at the same time there are certainly fireworks. Alex has investigated both Thomas's brother and the new boyfriend of his other brother.

Just when you think there may not be a way for the two of them to overcome the past transgressions Alex stands up for Thomas's loved ones and shows that he is no longer the man Thomas believed him to be. I loved watching these two reconnect regardless of all of the hurdles that stood in their way.

Swish is a must read and I highly recommend listening to the audio.

Such Chemistry!

I had not read either of the first two books in this series, when I listened to this one, and it was fine. Now, that does not mean that I did not wish I had read them, because I did, but just because I enjoyed this one so much. I do plan on listening to them soon. Thomas and Alex were exes. It usually does not work out the second time, if it didn't the first time, but they were still in high school the first time. They have both grown up a lot since then, and they still have lots of chemistry between them, but there is still some leftover tension, between Thomas' brother and his boyfriend and Alex. First, I really enjoyed the book. There were some really hot scenes, all in a story that I really enjoyed. I just wanted to keep listening, even though I had arrived at work, and had to go in. Then, the narrator was Michael Pauley. This was my first book that I have listened to of his, but I found that he did a fantastic job. There were lots of men talking back and forth in this book, but with his narration, I could easily keep up with who was saying what. E.Davies and Michael Pauley make a winning combination.

Michael Pauley gives this even more life

I absolutely loved this! The end of book 2 had me wondering who the heck Thomas was talking to. When I all of a sudden saw Alex's name, I thought "WHOA!!! I didn't see that coming!".

We finally see Thomas getting his happy ever after. He is such a quiet person, especially compared to his brothers. He struggled with finding personal happiness, and he closed himself off from finding it much by focusing on his professional happiness. Alex is a PI who has realized that he finally wants to settle down and have a relationship. He sees Thomas after a few years away, and finds the man he hasn't stopped thinking about. Thomas tried to stay away, but he couldn't either.

I liked finding out about Thomas and his history. I do wish I had more information about Alex's past. It refers a lot to being run out of Toronto, but we don't get a lot of details about that. I love the relationship between the brothers. You can tell they adore and love each other very much, and it is refreshing to read about positive family relationships.

There wasn't a ton of angst in this story. There was a bit of resolution for some characters from the first 2 books, and we get a glimpse at Floyd needing help from Alex. Maybe this is book 4? I'm looking forward to this, and am so glad that the series will continue!

I have to say that Michael Pauley breathes so much amazing life into this series. I love the stories of this series on its own, but Michael is soooooo good as a narrator. I will re-listen to this series so many times now that I have it.

another great story Riley Brother story

The Riley Brothers series is one of my favourite series by E Davies. Swish is a second chance romance story with two very likeable characters. This book is very well written. It's funny and sexy.
The narration by Michael Pauley is great and made the characters even more real for me.
Thank you Ed for a great series and Michael for bringing them to life.

Great storytelling

I really liked this story and the narration. Michael Pauley does a great job narrating this second chance romance. Ed Davies keeps writing such lovely stories about guys who have a lot to offer, but sometimes need a little help.

I loved this story and the whole series. I highly recommend that you give these books a read and a listen to.

Second chance at new love

I love Alex and Thomas. They are such a cute couple and they have lots of fun together. The chemistry is off the charts for these two and it’s so good to see that things can work out for these two. Despite the rocky start to the relationship and the conflicts with Thomas brothers they seem to have a good start at a forever thing. I love how the narrator gives all these guys such a unique voice and brings the passion to life. Such a good series.

Second chance to love.

This couple is actually the one I sort of can relate less out of the three brothers, probably because they're so jaded and guarded in the beginning.
I liked the story in its entirety all the same, I love how in the end they're both willing to work on themselves to be what the other needs them to be.
Ed Davies storytelling is sweet and captivating and as usual just leaves you wishing for more stories.
And Michael Puley's voice gives it that extra to make it a solid 5star recommended book!
