Jeremy is the quintessential homebody: He lives with his family, works from home, and doesn't even drive. He also doesn't think very much of himself after his failure to prevent his brother Daniel's injury. He is struggling to decide what to do with his life when fate drops a true mate right in his lap. Too bad even his mate can't see anything in Jeremy worth wanting.

I have listened to this about 3 times in a week I love it!!! John’s voice is brilliant and really brought a fantastic book to life.

As we read in the last book, Jeremy met Marcello when Marcello came to susilama with Jeremy and Daniels brother. Jeremy recognises his mate instantly but Marcello ignores him!!! But why? Well that’s for you to find out in the book!! There is heartache for us as we go through a terrible ordeal with Jeremy and smiles as Daniel is there!! Yay I love Daniel!!!

This book had me angry, then crying, then laughing then sad and then giggling at the end!!! For those who have already read the book, the ending is even better read by John!!!

If you like shifter stories with a fantastic story line, strong characters and emotional overload then this is the series for you!!! John continues to do a fantastic job of voicing the characters. Although this could be read or listened to as a stand-alone I would recommend you start at the beginning, although didn’t like the narration on the first book, sorry John!! But please don’t be put off he totally nails it in book 2 and this one, can’t wait for the next book in this series.

Going from exchanging emails to moving in together happened in the blink of an eye, but Jackson wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. Getting to know the quirks and needs of each of his boys has been fascinating and endlessly amusing. With Sawyer’s quiet desire and Cooper’s erotic fantasies, Jackson knows they were meant to be his. Sawyer and Cooper know more than anyone that life can change in a second, but every moment they spend with Jackson makes them more confident they’d met Master Right. They’d finally found the man who made their family complete.

This is the 3rd and final instalment of accidental master, you need to listen to these in order or you will not get the right experience and may get confused. Jackson, sawyer and cooper are now together, living together and are happy, but as if live some people still have to stick there nose in and dampen things!!!

Coopers love for live and the two men in his life continues as does sawyer who really grows into himself through this story and you see more of his personality as he lets go off his role of coopers minder. Kenneth continues to bring all the characters to life and brought out emotions in me reading the book didn’t.

I love Jackson’s parents and wished all parents were like them the way they are so loving towards the 3 guys is beautiful to read and hear!!

I am sad that this series ended and hope nora Pheonix brings them back at some point.

Really enjoyed listening to this story about Reese a werewolf who doesn’t agree with the take over, and Ashton a human who breaks into arrears home to steal something to help his best friend, this was a sweet if not nice backstory in this series. You can’t help but love Reese and want to slap Ash for being so stupid!!!!

Jack’s narration is better in this one then the last one. Although he still has a habit of pronouncing each word slowly I found that If you listen to it on 1.25x speed it is a lot better and really got me into this story, off to book 3 now!! Really getting addicted to this series

When he agreed to take the fall for his pack leader's failed attempts to help the Rebellion, Jace knew he wouldn't live long enough to regret it. However, instead of the noble end he envisioned for himself, the werewolf finds himself at the mercy of a witch and his depraved games. How long can he cling to his pride and conviction that he can withstand anything his controlling new master can dish out? Now that supernatural beings have seized control of the world, life has become a struggle for the humans who once held power.

I enjoyed this book even though I started it thinking I wouldn’t, but wanted to read and listen to something different.

The story although dark wasn’t as nightmarish as I feared.

Jace is a wearwolf who is sold to a witch Elias, who keeps him as his pet (slave) both characters were believable and I actually want to read book 4 were they apparently appear again, but willow onto book 2 instead!!!

The narrator was good but slightly annoying as he over pronounced each word, and as I read and listen I got annoyed as every page he either missed a word or misread a sentences. However this didn’t distract to much from the overall story thankfully

Aaron is drowning. After coming out as gay, he lost his parents’ approval, his job, and his sense of identity. He feels like a freak who doesn’t fit in anywhere. His last hope was his brother, Josh, but Josh can’t seem to forgive him for how Aaron treated him when they were teens. All Aaron wants is for someone to accept him, guide him, because he doesn’t have a clue. When sexy jiujitsu teacher Blake takes him in and starts mentoring him, Aaron has hope for the first time, even though he can’t understand what Blake sees in him.

This story is kind of two in one, we met Aaron and Blake in the last story, but in this story we get to meet Aaron properly and see just how much life has broken him, I just want to cuddle him and tell him he will be ok. I was not impressed with Josh, Connor and Noah’s rejection of him!!! I was happy that Indi at least stood up for him. Blake is a guy not looking for a relationship but how could he resist Aaron!!! The relationship between the two was really sweet and really loving, I loved how Blake showed Aaron it was ok to be himself and to wear what he wanted.

The other part of he story is catching up with NOah, josh, Indi and Connor, wow those guys no how to give us a story!!

This was a really enjoyable sweet story with lots of elements that Kenneth captured in this audio, his voice were on point and went from sweetness to drama fluidly so the story just flowed!!! I can’t wait for the next book on audio!!

Their relationship isn’t all that progresses, though, and soon, it seems that an odd bite on Blaine’s neck has become much more.

Oh wow I really got into this book, I loved the story of Blaine and Flynn, Blaine is an experienced ghost hunter who works with a group of guys as you can imagine ghost hunting!! Flynn joins them wanting to find proof that his parents ghosts are with him.

The team decide to do an investigation into a hospital and this is where Kenneth’s brillliance comes in, two ghosts latch onto Blaine and Flynn and Kenneth’s voice for the ghosts is probably to good, for me anyway I lost count of how many times I jumped and shivered and never want to hear the words Room 204 ever ever again!!! Well ok until I listen to the audio again!!

This was a really nice romance between two guys who despite having an immediate attaction took awhile to get there!!

I would recommend this to anyone who likes mm contemporary romance, who likes to be scared and who wants to hear Kenneth’s scooby doo impression (so funny lol)

For years, I lived with him as roommates. Then, one fateful night, things changed. We became more. So much more. The sex was out of this world. Being his boy was the highlight of my day. Until feelings started to creep in and sex wasn't enough for me. Afraid of losing him, I kept quiet and hoped for a miracle. Could my Daddy love me, too? Or would I continue to be his boy, his play toy?

I got this audio as it was recommended a lot as a daddy kink book, however to me daddy kink is where the daddy cares for the boy and there wasn’t much of that in this story, however I did still enjoy the story and loved the epilogue!!! I’m glad they both got their HEA as I found myself routing for them from the beginning!!

I loved narration which really brought the story to life!!!

Drew Beaumont is bored of the same old roles: action hero, supervillain, romantic lead. He’s not going to let a fresh gay buddy comedy languish just because they can’t find him the right costar. No, Drew bats his eyelashes and convinces everyone that the movie’s writer should play Drew’s not-so-straight man. Aspiring writer Steve Sopol has never had a screenplay optioned. Now, one of Hollywood’s hottest properties wants to be in a movie Steve hasn’t finished writing - and he wants Steve as his costar. Turns out the chemistry between them is undeniable - on and offscreen.

This is a story about two men who meet on a movie set and fall in love, I enjoyed it for the simplicity of the story and the good flow between both the main characters, there were no angst, no major drama which left me just relaxing and listening to Kenneth’s voice, perfect!!!

Kenneth’s narration was really good and he kept the story going, his character voices were good and easily distinguishable.

Xander Penn has been around the block more times than he cares to count, always searching for an elusive something he’s never admitted to wanting, not even to himself, until now. Then again, realizing what he craves doesn’t mean he accepts it. It’s one thing to dabble at the open-door policy club he belongs to, but quite another to declare it to others in the real world. After a harsh rejection pushes away the one person Xander wishes he could pull closer, he spirals down a dark path using meaningless sex more as a punishment than a pleasure.

I really enjoyed this story. Both Xander and Liams characters were believable, my heart broke for Liam a number of times but glad he hung in there, I loved the ending and loved that I finished the book laughing.

I enjoyed the narration and felt the narrator did a good job but would have preferred it if he had used a bit more emotion as I felt he read the book rather then got into the story and acted it. But definitely recommend for those who like first time gay and don’t mind some mf sex scenes

Loved this second instalment of the accidental master series, except for the fact it ended and now have to wait for the third!!!

I love cooper and his positive bouncy attitude to life, it helps balance sawyers apprehensive view, it is nice to see sawyer being able to let go of having to look out for copper and find himself and discover his own needs and wants. Kenneth did a fantastic job of bringing the characters and the story to life, through the different emotions of all three men, can not wait for the next one.
