This is quite a fast paced story covering five years of the relationship between Victor, Andrew and Mattie. Whilst it is book 2 I didn't feel I missed..Show More » out on not having read book 1. It works as a standalone. The story has got me interested in the rest of the series so I will be moving on to book 1. Andrew and Victor are an established couple who have set up their business, All Cocks porn site, the basis for the series. Mattie is homeless and seeks a job with the company. All the characters are really well defined, Victor strong business man, Andrew more artistic side, which compliments Victor, and Mattie who is given a chance to grow. They are all lovable characters but I was draw more towards Mattie who brings an innocent joy and enthusiasm to the story. Mattie's traumatic past is only one of the central themes, the story is also how the 'throuple' build their relationship.
Joel Lesley is a very skilled narrator, he really brings the drama and action in the story to life. His characterisations are excellent. He makes the personalities of each main character shine through.
I would recommend this book. It is fast paced and interesting enough that I would definitely listen to it many times.
I was given a copy of this audio by the narrator in exchange for a fair and honest review.
As always T.M Smith knows how to weave a tale with twists and turns. Kory is an abrasive character with a troubled past. Jon Brennan is a Detective fr..Show More »om an Irish Italian family of policemen. Not a likely pairing but it works so well, bumpy but that's what makes it interesting. The Brennan family are great, loving, accepting and crazy. Gran is wonderful. I must admit I did miss Victor at the beginning but he does make a couple of appearances.
Gran doesn't appear for much of the book and I think it's Joel Leslie's narration that makes this eccentric character so charming. His narration emphasised Jon and Kory's strength of character making Kory more likeable as his story unfolds. I have come to trust that when a book is narrated by Joel Leslie all the characters, both main and peripheral, are given the same attention to detail: which provides a more rounded listening experience.
