4 stars for this whopper of a story...hopefully, the first of many. Took me a while to get used to Kirt narrating, I kept expecting Ox and Joe, or Gordo and Mark ;-), but once I'd gotten into the story, I was hooked. There were quite a few errors word-wise, and I suspect that was the author's fault, not the narrators. I'm sure Adrienne knew what she meant, but that's not what was said [or probably written].

Great audio for one of my favourite ever series...

Wonderful. One of my fave ever series has finally appeared on audio, and was very well narrated by John Solo...although I have to admit I was half expecting him to come out with Patrick's voice from Leta Blake's Wake Up Married Serial, Episodes 1 - 3 and Wake Up Married serial, Episodes 4 - 6: Fight Their Feelings, Meet the Mob, Happy Ending...both of which were brilliant by the way ๐Ÿ˜. Can't wait until A Clean Break is released later this month I believe. 5 stars from me.

Great narration again Darcy...

***Audio Review***

Darcy Stark is the perfect narrator for this series, and Redemption has just come out on audio too. I just love his interpretation of Lucky, Bo and Walter and Johnson has a wonderful Texan twang. Great audio.

***Book Review***

4.5 stars. Loved it, but hope Lucky pulls his head out of his a**e soon. Bo is worth so much more than Lucky is giving him at present...and I'm really sorry it's taken me nearly 6 years to read this ๐Ÿ˜”.

Grand job Mr Russo...

Once again, Nick does a grand job of bringing one of my fave couples, Tom and Cooper, to life.

***Book Review 2014***

Nic Walker, I swear you've brought me to my knees again!! I just ADORE this series. A gazillion of stars, but as it's Goodreads 5 stars and 5 enormous ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿงก will have to do unfortunately. Absolutely superb!!

Tom and Cooper are two halves of the same whole, I sincerely believe that...the age difference means absolutely nothing, it's a Gen Y, Cooper Jones and LOVE thing!! Tom has an enemy in this one, someone that would not normally be expected to cause a ruckus, and Coop has a complete perv after him because Tom of course is waay too old for Cooper and the perv is young, handsome and filthy rich with Daddy's money. ..but apparently lacking a brain ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ. Do matters get resolved to my satisfaction...hell to the yes!! Jennifer rides to Tom's rescue, Tom discourages the perv and goes all caveman to protect his lover AND something happens at the end which put an even bigger grin on my face!! What is it?? Well, I'm sure you can all have a real good guess...and you're probably correct, I can only confirm that chez moi there was **Happy Dancing**, woot!! Nic, I can't thank you enough for all of these amazing stories. ♥♥♥

ADORE this series...

I LOVE Darcy Stark as narrator for this series, and his voice for Retta Johnson [to a non-Texan like me] sounds authentic; she's such a funny character until you get on her wrong side, hehe. Apparently the audio for Reunion is very close to being released, so I know what I'll be spending one of my Audible credits on, yay!!

***Book Review***

4.5 stars. Loved it. Bo finally makes it back into the light after being in a really dark place, and Lucky gets his man, their house and a new friend at the bureau. Congrats to Nestor and Victor too.

Fantastic audio interpretation of this story from the always fabulous Teddy Hamilton and new-to-me narrator Aaron Shedlock. There was some unnecessary drama in the story which didn't make much sense to me [Uncle] and of course the ubiquitous hate crime by an absolute pig of a jealous swimming jock, although that WAS entirely predictable. Lovely almost lyrical quality to some of the writing, and Royal and Camden made a great team. Not giving anymore of the story away...4 stars for the story and 5 stars for the audio. Yet another Teddy Hamilton winner for me ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ

Nice end to this new series...

***Audio Review**

Usual Mr Tremblay...oops sorry, Boudreaux quality. There were a few errors, but what can I say?? With the right material, he's just so much better than anyone else...โ˜บโ˜บโ˜บ

***Book Review***

4.25 stars. The only reason I've not given it 5 stars is the fact that the 'traitor' was quite well telegraphed and couldn't really have been anyone else.

Ward and Leo were so well suited, Leo being the archetypal computer geek...extremely intelligent but pretty awkward socially and Ward?? Well, he wants to control every little thing he can but he can only do so much - his chosen family i.e. the Kings Security guys are everything to him, and he will do all he possibly can to keep them safe and together. Leo totally catches him by surprise, and to watch him floundering is really sweet. He falls in love with the younger man fairly quickly...he can't quite believe it himself.

A good finish to this new series from Charlie.

God, I ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™ these two...

***Audio Review***

Still loving Darcy Stark's interpretation of Bo and Lucky. His voice for Nestor Saucedo on the other hand needs a little bit of work...think I caught Spanish with some Irish thrown in for good measure ๐Ÿ˜‰. Won't stop me listening to book 5 Redemption though...

***Book Review***

4.5 stars from me. All I can say is "Watch yourself Stephan Mangiardi...lots of people are out to get you"...and others may join the queue ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ . Love Bo and Lucky

Yet another great narration from these two...

With the wonderful Christian Fox and Teddy Hamilton narrating as Keaton and Luke respectively, how can this audio fail really...unless you didn't like the story to start with of course ๐Ÿ˜‰. They were absolutely amazing with THE UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE YEAR, which remains one of my favourite audio books ever, so 5 stars for the audio even though it was a little slow to get going, just like the story was.

***Book Review***

4.25 stars from me. Nothing can compare to Him [๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’œ] which I suppose is a real shame for the authors, but I only liked this one as opposed to loved it. KH3 was an entitled brat [not nasty, just oblivious] but finally clued into that lightbulb moment ๐Ÿ’ก that not everyone has Daddy's money to back them up, and Luke?? Well, he definitely needed a good smack occasionally...although in view of his absolutely dreadful family and the fact that he was as poor as a church mouse [mainly because of them sponging off him], I suppose I can understand that he would obviously have trust and relationship issues...especially when someone who'd never been with a guy before came calling...and then kept on wanting to call ๐Ÿ˜‰. Oh, and btw I hated Judd...obnoxious prat!! ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ!!

There were plenty of sexy times in this story, Keat discovered he had a submissive kink too and Luke?? Well, he discovered that he loved listening to Keat twittering on about sexy facts of nature and his proposed trip to Chile to find an undiscovered whale. Happy to say the party at the Hayworth house in the Hamptons made me tear up a little...the L word made its appearance, sighs.

Wonderful narration by Nick J. Russo, and as this is an emotionally charged story, his interpretation was perfection [thank goodness Nic decided that a change of narrator was in order for this series]. The drafting table made several appearances ๐Ÿ˜‰. The cost may be an issue for some people...quite expensive for a 3 hour+ narration really, but I got the audio for a cheaper price cos I bought the book back in 2015.

***Book Review 2015***

5 stars ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ and 5 ♥♥♥♥♥ from me.... another delightful, delicious instalment of Nic's Thomas Elkin series of books. I read the first one on a plane from London to Lisbon...this one I stopped decorating the Christmas tree and just sat down and read it, and it couldn't have been more perfect, sigh.

I really do think that Cooper is the adult in this relationship...."How did you get so wise?" "I'm just smart like that". I kissed him with smiling lips. "You're just smug like that." "It's a Gen Y thing?" "It's a Cooper Jones thing". It has to be said that both guys are completely head over heels with each other, and as Cooper says "I've fallen in love with you, and if gender doesn't matter, then neither should age".

In this story, Cooper has his work cut out trying to convince Tom's jealous ex wife Sofia that he and Tom are really together and are the 'real deal' (and luckily they have Ryan's support)....and that's before they have to tell both sets of parents that they are a couple (and in Tom's case, he actually needs to 'come out' to his Mum and Dad as well), but as usual, the course of true love does not run smoothly for either of them, and there will be lots of tears before we reach the end of the tale. Congrats Nic, another wonderful story. โ™กโ™กโ™ก
