After a decade of serving in the Army, everyone still expects me to be Dominic "Nicky" Costigan, the skirt-chasing player. They don't know I've been spending my days trying to figure out my post-military life. Including how to pick up guys. When I meet Luke on a hookup app, he makes it clear it's for one night only. That's fine with me, because I'm down to see what this silver fox can do. But after I arrive at his doorstep, it doesn't take long to realize we have serious chemistry, and we end up meeting again. He's got more walls around his heart than a military base, but I think he's as addicted to me as I am to him. He can't resist me for long. I mean, who can? Except Luke's rules exist for a reason, and when I test his limits, things get complicated. Maybe too complicated.

"LOVED the story...not the narration."
2.5 stars for the narration, but 5 stars for the story.
Let me start with the positive – which is this is a FANTASTIC story!
I devoured this book! It was SO GOOD! So many exclamations!! Seriously, though, Dominic is one of the best character turnarounds from dick to awesome dude that I’ve ever read.
The sex is scorching hot, the characters are awesome, the story is realistic without losing the “romance” story aspect… and I loved it. Absolutely loved it!
But I pretty much hated the narration.
It’s a very hard thing to pull off if there two or more narrators on a story. It’s especially hard when the story is more dialogue driven. I wish in those cases the narrators would each choose a character and keep ONLY to that character voice and POV. The story would be much better served by that approach.
Why? Well, here we have two narrators with wildly different approaches and who each take a POV chapter. So Guy Locke narrates all of Luke’s chapters, and Eric London narrates all of Dominic’s.
So what’s the problem? It means you have 2 HUGELY different character voices FOR THE SAME CHARACTER. A total of four voices for two people. For me, in this case, it was often jarring and a bit off-putting while listening.
Then, again, I had the same issues with Guy Locke’s narration for Strong Signal for Fast Connection. Locke’s narration just does not work for me. His stilted way of speaking, the too slow narration, the over enunciation were just maddening.
There is one positive for Locke, though, as I did like his character voices.
I enjoyed London’s pacing, timing, emotion, and overall performance….but I’ll admit I preferred the character voices from Locke.
I wish I could have melded Locke and London together so I could have the character voices from Locke, but the actual narration from London.
In the end, it wasn’t a horrible listening experience, but it wasn’t a good one for me either. I doubt I’ll listen to the audio again, which is a shame, because the story is terrific and I was hoping to put the series into my re-listen rotation. But I guess I’ll have to be satisfied with just re-reading the book.
I highly recommend the book, but caution for the narration.
I was hoping gor a good second in a sèies. this did mot disappoint. excellent characters. Well performed! Kudos!
"Loved it! Of course I would."
Two of my favorite writers teaming together! What's not to love. The pacing. The realism and the local vocabulary just made me love Nicky. Of course Hassell is good at taking minor douche characters, giving them a story of their own and making them my favorites( Ollie and Caleb, anyone?). Add Erickson's wonderful, but not over the top, angst and coming back together style. And let's not forget both of their styles of writing heat inducing sex scenes. I can't recommend this series enough! The narration was top notch as well. They did good in choosing Guy Locke and Eric London. My first time hearing them and hopefully not my last.
Everything about this audiobook is 5 star. I already LOVE this book now having the audiobook means I can listen again and again. *dancing guy dances all over the damn place.!
"These two guys are headed for disaster"
These guys never should have met and they will never be able to be a couple with kind of equality in the relationship that the younger guy desires. The older lovers is a SOB and so bossy no one except a masochist could put up with his cold and explosive personality. The ending of the book is completely unrealistic considering the anger felt by the members of both familiar especially the fathers. The younger lover's father is so obnoxious he can't stop himself from being verbally abusive for even just one day. What a horrible set of characters in this book. None of them are likable or has any redeeming qualities.
