Outstanding Narration and a Great Story

The book drew me in from the beginning. This mystery / suspense has an interesting cast of character including some evil villains you will love to hate and flawed main characters you will root for. Once again Nick J. Russo knocked the narration out of the park and made a fantastic story even better. The mystery portion of the story is solved, but the relationship has a bit of a cliffhanger ending. I can't for the 2nd book!

Great story and narration

There is a lot to unwrap with this first book in the series. I will say, I am very much looking forward to books 2 and 3 to complete (I believe) the series.Adam and Eagle had been best friends since they were children. Adam is, frankly speaking, a hot mess. I won't go into it all, as that is an integral part of the book. However, his best friend Eagle doesn't know that Adam is bisexual, even though they have been living together (as roommates) for several years, since Adam's last marriage imploded. Eagle, meanwhile, has his head on his shoulders, due to a son he had very young, who helped to get him on the right path.These two men had at least one "experiment" in their past, that Adam just basically ignored, then never spoke to Eagle about. All the while, Eagle has been in love with is best friend since they were kids. See? Hot mess = Adam. And it only gets worse as the book concludes on a cliffhanger.The main plot, with the serial murders is intriguing, and very well done. I will warn, there are some graphic descriptions that some readers may not find palatable as they read. It isn't for the weak of stomach. Very well researched and written, though, so just know you will be drawn in, if you don't mind reading these descriptions.Also, be aware this does end on a cliffhanger, sending you right into Book 2.Nick J. Russo does a great job with his narration, as always, keeping his dialects, and voices distinct, so that the listener can delve even deeper into the story. I always feel that great audio narration creates an even better love for the story, than just reading it. (Of course, the opposite can be true with not as good narration.) Nick does a great job of creating that environment to sink your teeth into that story.Story: 4.5 pieces of eye candyNarration: 4 pieces of eye candy. I did receive code for honest review

Get in! Sit down! Shut up! And Hold on! 🤪

Warrior's Way MMy Thoughts Confessions and Review: Get in, Sit down, Shut up, and Hold on! THAT should have been the title of this action-packed, stylized thriller. A serial killer is preying on gay couples and the scenes this killer leaves behind for authorities to untangle are some of the worst experts in the field have ever seen. Because of this, the FBI has recruited the help of a team in New Mexico they hope will flush out the killer. Ex-Army Ranger turned homicide detective, Eagle Woodard and criminal-profiler, Doctor Adam Coulter will pose as a gay couple about to wed while also pretending to be unfaithful. This book was fantastic! Now, I must confess, I was a little afraid going in, simply because thrillers are some of the hardest stories to write, but this (new-to-me) author pleasantly shocked and surprised me. Okay, so what you NEED to know... This book is graphic in all its details. I mean c'mon, we are dealing with a sadistically deranged serial killer who kills same-sex couples and leaves horrifically gruesome scenes in their wake. So, if details of blood and gore are not your thing, you may need to skip this one. There are also scenes of non-con and dub-con, and a torture scene involving an MC. These are all important and move the story forward. The book is the first in a trilogy, so it doesn't resolve itself in book one. Never fear, however, book two is already out, (my review on that one is coming soon) and I read, book three will be "hand to eye-ball ready" very soon. I will most definitely be on the lookout for that one! I enjoyed this story and the author's imaginative style. I found myself drawn in from the start and lost myself in this world. There were quite a few, "WHAT THE..." moments, and I most definitely did NOT see that ending coming. If you're a fan of thriller, serial killer, criminal-profiler TV shows, books, and movies you will truly fall for this. Think, "Criminal Minds" meets "Silence of the Lambs" or "Kiss the Girls," with an LGBTQ spin. Oh, MMy Gah! What a rush! As for the sMMexy Nick J. Russo narrating this bad boy I've got two words... MORE PLEASE!🎧💕🎧 The Story 4.50 🌟 The Narration 5.00🌟 Overall: 4.75✨ Tonto-and-Kemo-Warrior-Stars I received a complimentary audio copy of this book from OWI tours in exchange for my review. 🏳️‍🌈

Disturbingly thrilling

🌟🌟🌟🌟 4.5 stars 🔥🔥🔥 Heat Level: 3.5 🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧 Narration: 5 Disturbingly thrilling! A gripping and twisted serial killer tale. There are so many characters and moving pieces to this story at times it was a little hard to keep straight but the overall thrill, hunt, deception, ambition and so much more held me captive as a deranged serial killer finds their next victim. I know I was warned about torture and violence but I will say I was surprised at the graphic detail and eventual happenings to one of the main characters! I get that this case is closed but Eagle and Adam have a long way to go to come back from something so brutal and in true cliffhanger style the last sentence had me screaming for book 2. Well written, with a disturbingly psycho killer and fantastic narration by Nick, this is well worth a read!

as good as the ebook

The story is always 4-5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me. The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. Nick J Russo is one of the top 5 narrators for me, I can listen without break and have no problems to follow. I'm just not yet finish with the book, just over the half, but I listen enough to give a review. PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!! To my ratings: 5* - very very good it's like an A+ 4* - very good and will be often re-listening it's like an A 3* - it's more then a one-time-listening. it's like a B

Superb narration!

Overall: 3.75 Stars!  Narration: 5 Stars! Story: 3.25 Stars The narration was superb, Nick J. Russo has such a wide range of voices and can convey a lot of emotions with his performance, which really came in handy in a multi-perspective book like this one. My favorite has to be his portrayal of the killer(s), because damn, if he didn't do a fantastic job with them. I got chills on that last scene with them and Adam and Eagle. The premise of a homicide detective Eagle Woodard and his BFF/roommate and criminal profiler Adam Coulter being recruited by the FBI to play a gay couple—which is what the killer(s) are hunting down—was good, although the execution fell a bit short for me. The fact that we learn who the killer(s) are pretty early on didn't exactly help matters, although I will admit that getting inside their head and seeing what they were capable of was scary as all hell. I liked Adam and Eagle, although I frankly didn't feel that much chemistry between them. Perhaps it was the fact that they both slept with others on-page, or perhaps I found it difficult to understand why Adam was in the closet and didn't want Eagle to know he was bisexual. I don't know, I just wasn't feeling their connection or even the love they supposedly felt for each other and the whole calling themselves Tonto and Kemo, didn't really help. Then we have Rick Kessler, who was a grade-A twatwaffle. Really, the man was insufferable and so unprofessional. I really have no clue how he'd gotten so far in the FBI with the way he handled this case. Overall, the book was entertaining, despite all the things that didn't quite work for me. It was like a train wreck, I just couldn't put it down until I found out things would work out for Adam and Eagle. This is not a romance, so don't go expecting hearts and flowers, because you definitely won't get that here, and if you want a HFN/HEA, just pick a different book because this one ends in a cliffhanger. Would I recommend it? Yes, although if at all possible pick the audiobook because Nick did a wonderful job with it. Would I read/listen to the next book? Maybe? I'm on the fence about that, although Nick narrating it might sway me towards yes.
