Life has never been easy for Duncan Stiel. His childhood was the stuff of nightmares, and his day job as an undercover police officer forces him to hide his true self and occasionally lands him in the hospital. So when he finally meets the perfect man, it comes as no surprise that everything falls apart around him. What Duncan doesn't expect is that the hardest hurdle to get over before he can make a life with Aaron Sutter is the one inside himself.
Everyone thinks Aaron has it all - looks, money, fame, and success beyond measure. Everyone, that is, except Aaron. At the end of the day, the cameras stop flashing, friends go back to their own lives, company business is handled, and Aaron is always alone. The moment he meets Duncan Stiel, Aaron knows he'll do anything to hold onto the larger-than-life detective. But when he realizes money won't buy him the ultimate happiness, Aaron needs to find the strength to give Duncan something much more important - his heart.

Amazing! First let me say...if ur a m/m Romance fan and u don't know Mary Calmes...well shame on u!
This is book 7 of the Matter of Time series...and it was awesome! Books 1-5 is on AUDIBLE so download and enjoy first. Also if u want some back history on Duncan then get Acrobat which is also on here..
Now we all remember Aaron Sutter, Jory's ex...the billionaire hotel magnet...so Aaron and Duncan meet in book 6 (which is not on here) had a weekend fling and that's where this book begins
Aaron was so not this alpha in the other books...because he was chasing Jory. In this, Aaron alphaness was subtle...but man when whipped out the money leverage...people started to bow down! Money really can buy anything!
Duncan was like another version of Sam, after he realised he was in love with Jory. Two alphas coming together but willing to submit to each other! It was great...and the reversible collar was the sweetest thing ever!
Narration was awesome!
Total l y worth a buy credit or sale for any m/m Romance fan!
This book just clicked for me from start to finish and was totally great!
Plot -was good and kept your interest, narrator was good as well- all the pieces fit
together perfectly for a really great listen!
Finished it in one go and am now doing my second listen at a more leisurely pace!
"Loved the narrator."
I'd have to say yes in this case. The narrator did a great job bringing Duncan Stiel to life and a lot of the time it really felt like you were actually sitting there, listening to this guy telling his story.
When Duncan was hurt and Aaron broke their cover because of it.
Also, the moment Duncan unintentionally declared his love for Aaron while they were stuck in the security tower.
Duncan Stiel. He's just such an interesting guy. Tough, but sweet. Powerful and dominant on the surface, but submissive behind closed doors. He's a lot more interesting than Jory was.
I kind of wish this narrator could have done the a Warder series...
"A new instalment"
Just when you were getting tired of the Jory plot line, along comes this little gem. I'm always a fan of Mary Calmes and this book doesn't disappoint.
I'm sure I've got nearly all the books in the series.
"Sex, Sex, Sex, Sex, Sex, Sex..."
If you're looking for sex, this is it. But if you're looking for story, do not bother. I am going to return this one...or at least try to. Tristan you were as always, in my opinion, good. The only saving grace to this book. Mary, the sex scenes were good, but what happened to the story!? Listener, I have been thru this series, and this was a definite disappointment.
"A spin off more than part of series"
Aaron and Duncan's story was great but only references to Sam and Jory
Tristan did a great job narrating BUT his pronunciation of Jory changed to Yory for part of book with even Aaron's character making that mistake
My ocd caused me to not finish book first time. But second time I realized he corrected himself in last part of book
"Smokin Spin off characters"
Welcome to the world of Aaron and Duncan. Aaron billionaire, Duncan local cop - no way you say. Oh yes these guys are not joking they have what it takes and are willing to give it all. I loved that this started off being truthful. No games, their attraction is brutally honest. They quickly realize issues they have had in their past relationships like Duncan not living openly and Aaron not feeling he could - just can't apply this time. They get on the same page quickly so we get to enjoy the story and their adventure and steamy love life.
Loving Tristan as narrator. Mary Calmes feel free to continue their story I'm sure we will follow.
"WOOT Together at last!"
Not really comparable
I have listen to a lot of his performances and this one is one of his top ones!
"Great ending to my series"
Duncan and Aaron's story, all of it!
When Aaron shows up at Duncan's apartment after the 4 month misunderstanding.
Good, not great
Tristan James is a good narrator, but he read a little slow and sometimes it was hard to decipher which character he was doing. Sometimes it was hard to tell if it was Aaron or Duncan. I have read this book so I knew, but change in inflection would have helped some. Overall great read and audio
"Finally An HEA for Aaron"
I hopes for this story for so long because of all the subordinate characters of the series Aaron is one of the most intriguing.
Playboy billionaire Aaron Sutter has spent more years than can be counted pining for 'The one that got away', Jory Harcourt but when he meets tough as nails Duncan Steil things change. He finds that he cannot forget the beautiful detective he spends a night of passion with. For the first time in his life the normally confident man finds himself shy and uncertain and wanting something he has never wanted before..something just for himself. Not just something but someone, Duncan Steil.
Outside influences and familial pressures drive them apart but somethings are to strong to be denied.
Duncan is strong, beautiful and determined to make his way in a profession he has spent a very long time to make his own. The cost of his choice costs him though and that cost is in having to deny himself the one thing he truly wants for himself. Someone he can call home.
When an investigation goes sideways he has to ask for help and it comes in a very unlikely source and despite all the external factors seeking to keep them apart Duncan and Aaron will have to learn to trust and accept what others would seek to deny or destroy.
It's a heck of a ride so buckle up and gettyup!
