Review from amazon
The story starts when Rand owner of a horse breading company employs Kyle fast forward 8 years and they are best friends. One comment to his brother to get out of going to his wedding leaves Kyle needing a huge favour of Rand. What sparks is a sweet story between two people who clearly have a good close friendship. I loved both MC’s and the ranch hands were hilarious. Kyles family not so much although I want Kyle’s nan to adopt me!!!

This book made me smile, laugh out loud and get seriously annoyed. It is daddy/boy but doesn’t have any diapers. Going in my reread pile

Audible review
This was a hard one to review as I think I loved the story more listening to it then reading it but found it frustrating at times as the voices were really similar, and probably would have found it hard to follow had I not already re read the book a number of times. However having said that Bolton hill is becoming a one click narrator.

More emotional then the book!!

I love love love this story and have read the book a number of times. My review from Amazon

Ok this was definitely a read and can’t put down book, Raf is so sweet but a prime example of how emotional abuse can affect you into adulthood!! Brendan is such a great daddy that perfect blend of caring for his boy and allowing lifting his boy and allowing him to grow into himself and giving him the safety net to be able to deal with his trauma and move on. Nora has done and amazing job of showing what happens when a little and Daddy meet who are perfect for each other.

If you are new to Nora’s Amazing writing skills but are a fan of m.a. innes then you will love this, so read and then read the rest of Nora’s books you won’t be disappointed

In respect to the audible book, I am wowed as this for me was a prime example of how different reading and listening can be, there were a number of things I missed in the book that I picked up on in this audible and the emotional journey that Raf went on was more intense and emotional in the audible, I found myself crying and heart broken for RAF in the audible that I didn’t experience so intensely in the book, I loved the voices that Kenneth used, so thank you Kenneth from taking a 5 star book and for me turning it into a 6 star book. I can’t wait for the other books Raf and Brendan pops up in coming to audio

Loving this series

I really enjoyed this book, Lane is brilliant as a shy, nervous guy who has a crush on a tattooed georgous guy, thank goodness for Eli or they might not have spoken. Tattoo guy (Wilder) is a straight man who had not noticed Lane, until Eli “helpfully” pointed him out, well he is straight isn’t he? This book is wonderful to read and Kenneth’s narration really adds to the story.

Shaw has a brilliant way of writing sweet gay romance and this comes through in this book, although Eli remains my favourite , I am sure there are people who will argue with me that Lane is better :) Kenneth’s narration is how I expect it from him, each character has distinct voices and really match the character, as a Brit it takes me the first chapter to get used to strong American accents it didn’t put me off, although it helped that the accents seemed to soften as the book went on.

Really enjoyable listen

I loved this book and really enjoyed the narration Bolton Hill is growing on me as I struggled with his narration on a previous title. But his choices of voices were good, although would have preferred a more softer voice for Caleb. This will definitely go in my relisten pile.

Caleb is so sweet as a little who doesn’t think anyone would accept him as a little and a daddy is someone to dream about not someone who is actually real!! Until he meets Travis who slowly tries to convince caleb it’s ok to trust him.
On a side note I reallllllyyyy want Dexter’s story!!!

Perfect short story for a lazy afternoon

David is a lawyer about to enter divorce proceedings with his wife when he meets Aaron. Aaron is a janitor in his building and the two click upon first meeting. The relationship is fast paced but this is probably due to how short the book is, however it doesn’t detract from the story line, I love Aaron’s friends!!!

This is the first time I have listen to Vance’s narration and like his voice, however he needs to be careful as he goes into monotone at points throughout the book which throws you out of the story. But having said that it wouldn’t put me off listening to him again.

So emotional

Warning do not start this book when on the way to work!! I did and went into work fuming at the betrayal!! I loved Ethan and loved the way the author portrayed his hearing loss, I agree with others that the story slow down about the half way point but never to the degree that i thought about stopping it.

I loved Clay and his bumbling attempts at making Ethan feel at ease and looking at his own sexuality. Joel’s narration was good as usual, his voice for each character were district and love his female voices.

Sexy underwear wearing Dom yummy!!!!

Houston is a man who knows what he wants, to wear what he likes and be a Dom who wants to tend to his sub. Reece’s reaction is brilliant and the relationship that grows between them is amazing!!! We also meet Eli who I love!!!

The beginning of the audible was hard to listen to, Kenneth’s voice was slow, it was the first time I considered speeding his voice up!! the voices seemed all over the place, I really struggled to understand who was talking at times, however Kenneth seemed to settle after the first chapter and he kicks back into his usual fantastic story telling. Oh and the scene where Houston listens to Reece’s friends help him move in, Kenneth’s narration was so on point it was hilarious.

I will add that I have listened to it a couple of times now, to try and pinpoint why I struggled so much with the beginning that the voices don’t sound as bad, so maybe I just needed to get used to them.

This book is great for low angst readers/listeners who like their Dom’s in sexy underwear!!!

I really enjoyed listening to this story, however I felt that at times the relationship between Lucas and Andrei was drawn out a bit to much. But the narration and the who is out to get Lucas kept me intrigued to the end.

I loved the relationship between the four men!!! The narration was good and as I said kept me going through the book and the characters voices were good and recognisable.

Light funny and enjoyable

I love these three short stories, they were really funny and Kenneth’s Narration was so on point that it made it more hilarious!!! The stories are around a shifter group as each one finds it mate and are finding out that there is a group out to get rid of humans and other shifters. Bear in mind these are short stories so the getting to know each other is short and sweet, but oh so sweet!!!

I loved that each story rolled into the next and you didn’t have to listen to a regurgitation of the previous stories. Kenneth’s use of what will I imagine be his whole library of voices by the end made it enjoyable as it was easy to follow along.

Perfect if you want light, fluffy fun stories to listen to whilst driving or doing house work

I loved this book!! Miles, Charlie and Brad are three individuals who find what they need in each other. I loved the daddy dynamic between Miles and Brad and Charlie’s support in this.

We also catch up on the other characters. I loved Kenneth’s voices in the one and felt he has really come into the characters over the series and settled the voices. This is sooo going on my re listen pile, now to wait impatiently for No angel!!!
