This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

Christmas in a Cornish seaside town, bright lights, and a hot new romance to ward off the winter storms...what could be finer? But Gideon and Lee's first festive season together is shockingly interrupted when Lee tries to rid a client's home of a malevolent presence. The ritual goes wrong, and in its aftermath Lee is strangely altered.

As well as dealing with the changes in his lover, Gideon has a sinister thread to follow, linking the haunted house with disappearances among the homeless people of Falmouth. Can love withstand what looks like a case of possession?

As the darkest night of the year comes down, Gideon finds himself locked in a battle to restore his lover's soul.

No more for me

It’s not bad, but I just can’t continue the series. The stories are too short with little to no character building. The mysteries are too quickly solved and I can’t pickup on any real passion or chemistry between Tyack and Frane.
As I said though, it’s not bad. If you need something light and short to read, pick these up and give them a try. Maybe you’ll like them better than I did.
The narration was good. The voices are distinct enough to always know who’s speaking. The passionate scenes were done fairly well. I didn’t feel any real fear though as Mr Gilbert narrated the feelings experienced during the possession.

I’m really enjoying series

4.5⭐️. I am really loving this series with its “paranormal mystery” with police/psychic involved. The main characters are growing in love as their relationship flourishes. I really like how we are learning more of their backstories. It’s good character development. The author has done a very good job showing the obstacles that gay men experience throughout their lives without ever coming off “preachy”, even when there is a minister in the family. I would label this “steamy” and as this is my first series about men in love I find it appropriately sexy for 2 people in love and earlier in their relationship.
This one had a more psychic led storyline.

The one thing I realized is I don’t like the Narrator makes one character sound like a falsetto woman’s voice. In spite of that, I’m already downloading book 3.

Not enough story

The story was not as good as the first one - too much sex and not enough action, more like a romance than a mystery. Additionally, stories that end before much has resolved really disappoint me. Too bad, lot of potential for these two characters.

Too short, but highly recommended

It Christmas time in Dark and Gideon decides that he's earned a vacation. And he wants to spend it with Lee, on the Island, who's just arrived home from recording a television show. But first they have to do one more show in town. Only it doesn't go quite as planned and soon the couple is pulled into trouble in form of a haunted house, that is very reluctant to let Lee out of its clutches.

The relationship between Gideon and Lee is developing nicely. You can feel that there is a strong connection between them, trust, and friendship. And you can feel it maturing into something more, deeper and long lasting.

This book didn't have that same creepy feeling like the first one did, there was more suspense layered in. It does have it fair share of hauntings though. And the atmosphere that we loved from the first book is still present here. It will draw you in, and if you are so inclined, you might want to hide out under the covers when strangers knock on your door. You never know who or what seeks entrance.

Tim Gilbert did a good job narrating this book as well, I have to say he's really nailed the voices of both Gideon and Lee to really reflect their personalities as well as the feel of the book(s).

Again, I would've loved to have this book as a full length novel. I feel like there's just soo much to explore, both plot-wise and with the characters. I do believe this series really do have the potential to turn into a serious addiction.

And. if you haven't guessed it already; I am going to leave you now and go pick up the next book. I need to know more.

More coherent than the previous one

Despite having misgivings about the first book in this series being a pile of chaos, I’m listening because I loved some of the author’s other books, this one was short, and the title “tinsel fish” amused me. It was pretty good. I’ve been trained by usual ghostly fiction offerings to have expected something different causing poltergeist-like problems in this one. The fresh take was interesting & the guys seem good for each other (to say nothing of the dog). I think I’ll keep on with the series.

A little predictable

Not a bad story, pretty light. But not as good as the first installment. I'm still looking forward to the next book though.

Hooked immediately

Now the series is getting interesting! I was hooked immediately reading the first book and quickly continued with book 2. — Another excellent installment.

love

I am loving the way Gwyd seems to come alive and comes out his shell with Lee. Their relationship is very beautiful and what they sense and the bumps in the night are awesome. I can't wait to see what Lee is going to say about what his dad is doing.

Loving this series!

Loving this series! I am on the road a lot and have scurried thru the first two books... feel like I’m listening to the old penny novels... Thanks Audible for enticing me with the first book in the daily deals. Looking forward to enjoying all of them!

Love continues

THE budding love continues to wrap around Gid and Lee despite the extra stumbling blocks that seem to arise before them.

No, Not for me

I liked his other book series with the two guys one being Romany, in fact I gave them both 5 stars but I cannot get into this series, it may well be me but I just hated it and only got through chapter 3. Sorry but disappointed.

A good series with great characters

I'm really enjoying the audio of this series, the characters are growing with each book as we learn more about them as they go about their lives and solve mysteries with a paranormal bent. This time, Lee is in trouble from a session gone wrong when he tries to help a woman remove a troubling presence in her house and it takes the help of Gideon's brother Ezekiel to start sorting things out. Something also seems to be haunting Lee which is not resolved so that's still to be dealt with.
The narration is very good although it has taken me a bit to get used to Gideon's voice as it's a lot more gravelly than I expected/ had in my head from reading the pixel version of the book. I'm enjoying it enough to want to get the rest in the series so I'm looking forward to making my way through the set.
