Publisher's Summary

My name is Jamie Atwood, and I'm an addict. I never thought I'd say such a thing. Never had a problem being overly attached to anything in my life. I came from a perfectly middle-class family, made good grades, and had a hot cheerleader girlfriend...but the truth is, nothing ever really moved me.

So how did a guy like me become an addict? I met Michael Kage. Kage is an MMA fighter. A famous one. I like to think I helped him get that way. He's charming as hell, with looks to rival any movie star and talent to back it up. So why did he need to hire me as an intern publicist? Simple. He has a darkness in him - like a black hole so deep it could swallow him and me and everyone we know - and that's not good for business. The first time I met him, I felt the pull. I think the addiction began at that very moment. And even if I'd known then what I know now, I would have fallen for him. How could I not? For me, Kage is everything.

    "At last an amazing male fiction"

    It's about time somebody wrote a male adult fiction which has a credible storyline with depth of characters who really have you liking, disliking, and feeling for throughout the whole book. Don't start listening to this book if you don't have a clear schedule otherwise you'll find yourself cancelling appointments just to finish the book! 100% admiration and respect for the author absolutely superb writing thank you!

    "Be Warned"

    This series is freaking awesome. Absolutely engrossing. Just wow. There are no words.
    I admit I did get frustrated with the main characters quite a few times for angst that is everywhere in these books. I tell you your heart will be shredded. But somehow just when I think, "There is no way they are going to do this because of a misunderstanding..." Bam something happens I totally did not see coming and I'm lost in this wonderful, horrible, lovely, gritty, cuddly, sad world. Jeez my heart is going to be stitched together with duck tape and floss. That is just how amazing this story is.

    Not to mention the narrator. Ya, I could listen to his voice all day long just because it's that awesome. His voices for Cage and Jamie where so perfect it hurt. And when he brought the heat to a love scene it was panty melting.

    ****All that said I totally recommend this series. Hands down so worth every penny. HOWEVER you must have ALL three books before you start reading/ listening, because the cliff hangers at the end are absolute murder. Seriously. MURDER. You will die if you do not heed my warning! I know cliffies are hated by many but this series is worth it. You won't be disappointed if your a MxM romance fan.****

    Story
    "Gay fifty shades with a little mafia vibe included"

    This is really very much like the mm version of fifty shades, but i think i liked this version better. First, the author writes a lot better (which is not an impossible task at all). Second, it might just be the mm storyline but the characters seems more real. It is of cause a fairytale of a young naive (not-gay) man falling for the rich, troubled and lonely MMA fighter, who needs him to function. It is a comming out story for the college student and sort of a dom-sub story (without the whips) due to the personality of the MMA fighter, mostly. I liked that it is infact the MMA fighter who does not have a problem with being gay (he has too many other issues to deal with). It kind of creates an extra layer to an otherwise straigthforward story and makes it stand out a little. It is however not meant to stand alone so unless you commit to listening to all three of the books it wont make much sence. I liked the narration.

    Story
    "KAGE INSTANTLY WON ME OVER"

    I have several MMA series in my library but Kage is by far the best I've listened to. I've purchased several M/M books and returned all of them except Kage and one other. I like stories where sex fits into the story instead of trying to fit a story around sex. This is a story of triumph, growth, and acceptance. It also has suspense, thrills, mystery, and Hot-Hot Sex.

    I was immediately hooked on Kage and Kage was immediately hooked on Jamie. Kage notices the gay tendencies in Jamie so he takes advantage of an opportunity to hire Jamie as his personal publicist. Kage didn't realize Jamie was straight and had girlfriend until Jamie arrives the first day. Later it comes out that she's an x-girlfriend.

    Kage works on building a relationship with Jamie and Jamie finds himself being attracted to Kage and having sexual thoughts and feelings about him. It never crossed Jamie's mind that he could be gay. Everyone in Kage's inner circle knows Kage is gay.

    I usually don't give *Spoilers* but I was so happy for Jamie. When Jamie's parents and friends find out that he and Kage are a couple...all of them are accepting. Jamie's dad doesn't like it but he loves Jamie so he has a talk with Kage about his true intentions toward Jamie.

    Now for the Villen. Kage's uncle, Santori, owns a hotel/casino where Kage lives and trains. Since only Kage's inner circle knows he's gay, Santori sees Jamie as a vulnerability and hindrance who will keep Kage from winning the MMA championship.
    Santori also has two thugs who do his dirty work.

    This series is full of mystery, suspense, thrills, fun, sad secrets, and hot-hot M/M sex.
    I was drawn in at the very beginning of the story. I listened to all three books back-to-back and was sad when the series was over.

    J. F. Harding is now in my top 5 favorite male performers. His voice for Kage was mesimerizing. He of course also did Jamie's voice, Jamie's parents, siblings, and friends. Also Kage's friends, uncle, thugs, and employees. Every voice was distinctively different and never a concern about who was speaking.

    This series is absolutely without doubt worth a credit and I recommend this series to anyone who likes MMA.

    "Amazing!"

    The author really knows how to write a story. It wasn't all about the sex; there was so much build up. I almost couldn't take the antici....pation, in a good way. The author and narrator really take you on the emotional journey, as corny as it sounds. It was a roller coaster of sexual tension, frustration, awkwardness, and humor. Can't wait to start the next one.

    "OMG Probably my new favorite book couple!"

    These two are probably my new favorite book couple. Not only do I adore Jamie and Kage together, but also their characters more individually. I bought the next book this morning before I was even finished with this one. The narrator does a fantastic job also.

    "To slowburn for me"

    This is a seriously slow burn book. Like really slow. J.F. Harding does a great narration, and his voice for Kage - hot damn. The writing is good, I think the slow burn was just to much. And the way it ended was just ugh! I get that there are more books in the series, but authors (or editors) needed to understand you can't just do an ending like that.

    "Why haven't I heard more about this trilogy??? WOW"

    First things first.... CLIFFY WARNING but totally worth it and all 3 books are out so just make sure you have them all ready!

    I'm just diving into the world of m/m romance because I tried a few here and there and never really enjoyed them but this trilogy is awesome! The only thing negative I can say is that it's a slow starter but once it grabs you... your done for. I'm speeding my way through them all! I love the MMA fighter bad boy story line! I haven't gotten far enough into the series to know what is really going on but there is a secret background going on that makes this story very exciting. Both Kage and Jamie are strong smart men and when there lives collide it's like magic. I love that we get a lot of time with the characters so it isn't an insta-love and they are both such interesting characters. This book was fun, exciting and don't let me forget HOT!!!!!!!!!!!

    The narration is PERFECT! I've never listened to J.F. Harding but I watching for more of his work!

    Story
    "My Kind of Guy"
    Would you listen to Kage again? Why?

    Most definitely. I love gay men who are somewhat dominate yet will do anything in the world for you. A gay man who is strong-willed and passionate yet will bend to your command because he loves you so much. That is Kage and Jamey, imperfectly perfect for each other.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kage?

    One? I can't name one but I can give you six. 1. When Kage left the training camp like a bat out to hell to find and save Jamey from two guys who wanted to rape him. 2. When Kage and Jamey admitted their relationship to Jamey's friends. 3. The pantry scene in Jamey's parent's house. 4. When Kage finally remembers his childhood and his brother's death. 5. When Santori finally tells Kage the truth about his father and admit things about the past. 6. Santori and Jamey's final fight scene.


    What about J. F. Harding’s performance did you like?

    J.F. Harding has the perfect voice for this story. J.F.'s voice can have you nervous from fear or anticipation and readjusting yourself because of the passion. He can talk me out of my jockstrap any day. :-)


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    These 3 books was like a wild roller coaster ride - excited and a little scared all at the same time.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes. Give me more stories like this. More gay-themed books using athletes and of course have J.F. Harding read them.

    Story
    "WOW!! Intense & Addictive,the bar has just raised!"
    If you could sum up Kage in three words, what would they be?

    What a ride! This was a fabulously written and narrated story. This is THE book ( & trilogy) that other books in the genre will be measured by. It is an intense, gritty, sexy, hot read, with plenty of substance that will keep you entangled for from beginning to end. There is a bit of a startling cliff hanger... but it just adds to the intensity of this book so be prepared.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I listened to these books twice in a week, I liked them that well. I needed to make sure that I didn't miss anything. I love how the author really nailed the complexity and intensity of their relationship. Not a fluffy predictable read.


    What about J. F. Harding’s performance did you like?

    He performed all of the voices very well, he didn't just read the words; He really brought everyone to life!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Raw desire unleashed


    Any additional comments?

    Author/narrator pairing is golden!
