Publisher's Summary

Mob enforcer Ceaton Mercer has killed a lot of people in a lot of different ways - he stashed the last two bodies in a toolshed belonging to a sweetheart marine researcher in an idyllic island community - but he's really not such a bad guy. Over time he's found a home of sorts, and he even learns he's found a place in the hearts of the people he works with...at least enough so that they won't put a bullet in his head because he's outlived his usefulness to the boss.

But he never thought he'd find one day could change his life, and he's about to discover how wrong he is.

Because in a single day, he meets the man who looks to be the one, the love of his life. It's an improbable idea - a man who deals in death finding love - but it's like it's meant to be. That single day gets weirder and troubles pile up, forcing Ceaton to take a hard look at his dreary life and accept that one day can change everything, especially himself. His future might be brighter than he expects - if he can stay alive long enough to find out.

    Any additional comments?

    After I finished reading A Day Makes, I immediately thought, "I cannot wait for the audio! I need this on audio!"<br/><br/>Now that I've listened to it I can quite simply say: Greg Tremblay made this even better, and I didn't even think that was possible.<br/><br/>He does such fantastic character voices, especially the accents (of which there were MANY), which were all done brilliantly. <br/><br/>Now, it's true that I'm a Calmesaniac. I make no bones that Mary Calmes writes the kind of crack I'm addicted to.<br/><br/>But this story? What a fantastic ride you guys! Seriously, that was like the best roller coaster, and when you get off you immediately want to ride it again.<br/><br/>Mary Calmes always manages to take a first person single POV and make it so dynamic and enthralling that I cannot help but love it.<br/><br/>Our POV this time is solely from Ceaton Mercer, a mob enforcer with a conscience. Think that's an oxymoron? Nope. Mary Calmes pulls it off in a way it not only makes sense, but I was absolutely on board with Ceaton's decisions. I love how Ceaton's doing his best to be as ethical as possible in situations that don't normally find themselves to be on anyone's moral compass. Ceaton is making the best out of some truly hard situations.<br/><br/>The first half of the story sets up Ceaton and his friends, Pravi, Luka, and Marko, while the second half focuses on a single day in the life in where Ceaton meets his future, in more ways than one, learns some truth about his past and the lives he's saved and changed forever. And folks? Get ready for some ties to the past.<br/><br/>Now, this is sort of a slow burn. Though there's some romance (and sexy times) it doesn't come until later in the story, but it's definitely worth the wait. I absolutely loved Ceaton and Brin! I loved the banter, the action, the suspense, the Easter eggs...I loved it all! <br/><br/>All I can say without spoiling this was that I thought this was fantastic and sets up a possible series brilliantly. I really hope to get a better look at the Vault and get to spend more time with the guys in the future.<br/><br/>I love that Calmes can write a fantastic, mesmerizing series like the Marshals series that focuses on law enforcers, but can switch it up and write a story (and hopefully series - no seriously, please let this become a series!!) from the "bad" guy's perspective that is just as riveting and absorbing.<br/><br/>If you love bad guys with a heart of gold, some action, a bit of romance, definitely some great storytelling, and fantastic narration I highly recommend you pick this up.<br/><br/>100% Recommended!

    "Good but too short"

    I enjoyed this story, but it was just too short. The first half of the book was only about Ceaton. There was no mention of Brinley until the second half of the book and then it was insta-love, a shoot out, and the book was over.
    So we get to know Ceaton well, but Brinley seems to mostly be skipped over.
    Greg Tremblay totally saves this book. His narration is fantastic as always. He is the man of a thousand voices and accents.

    "Best narrator ever"

    The book is fantastic and the narrator is the best male narrator I've ever heard. He ranks right along side Barbra Rosenblat and I can give no higher praise.

    Story
    "Busy Day!"
    Would you listen to A Day Makes again? Why?

    Oh hell yes! Love the Author and the Narrator, but the story was so captivating and often hysterically riveting that I will want to revisit this one.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Ceaton, the poor guy. You can't help but simultaneously feel sorry for him and laugh so hard your ribs hurt at the circumstance he finds himself in.


    Which character – as performed by Greg Tremblay – was your favorite?

    I have listened to nearly all of Tremblay and Tremblay as Greg Boudreaux Audiobooks. I think that the books he's narrated over the past couple of years have ascended his initial audios (not that they were bad by any means, just the opposite) in that there is so much emotion in his performances that if you close your eyes, you can see the characters and the setting.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, actually, and not in a good way. For the sake of not listing spoilers, let's just say that someone Ceaton trusts implicitly breaks that trust. It kind of pissed me off at first, until I realized the Author was likely emphasising a point.


    Any additional comments?

    Oh wow, this book was so good! First off, it's not a gay romance per say. There is a bit of romance toward the end of the book, but the bulk of the story is Ceaton. His life, why he is where he is, what he does and ultimately, why he needs Brinn in his life. There is a lot of character development, the story told entirely from Ceaton's POV, and little romance.

    That's another thing, I've seen a couple of reviewers mentioning insta love. It so is not. If you actually listen to the story, you hear how they've met before and how much of an impact that meeting had on Brinn. Everything makes perfect sense after that.

    Note to the Author... Mary, I need more, can you write me more books in this world please? But only if Greg can continue to bring the characters to life. Lord I loved me some Pravi!!!

    Yes, I recommend this book, as if you couldn't tell.

    "Believe other reviews - IT IS that BAD...."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    no, I would not its not worth $13.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    oh lord, where do I begin....If your like me you read the previous reviews which were mixed...Some stated this is NOT Calmes best works... which it is not....Now its not Horrid, it feels rushed 3/4 to the end of the story....I legit enjoyed the backstory and she developed somewhat of the minor characters...But near the end your thrown new characters and insta- love.....The insta- love was some of the worst..... and I can usually handle cheesy insta-love stories..The author even knew it was ridiculous having her characters state this is 'too soon' or 'you don't know me' etc......I just would skip purchasing this if you looking at this now....Check out other audiobooks by her, and leave this one to disappear ........


    Which character – as performed by Greg Tremblay – was your favorite?

    he is an excellent narrator just he characters although slightly dynamic were cut short


    Did A Day Makes inspire you to do anything?

    ha, it inspired me to return and get a credit back


    Any additional comments?

    Three thumbs up for Greg trying his best to make this interesting

    "Brillant performance!! Amazing story."

    Oh man, please tell me this is to become a series!! I loved this story. During the first half of the book I was a little confused because Ceaton and his &quot;bros&quot; are basically murderers working for the Serbian mob. Marko has done horrible and very violent things. How could anyone like these guys? But somehow, the author gets us to love them. There is a lot of character development of Ceaton and his crew and the love interest doesn't even appear until the second half of the story. But when he does, it is magical. We get the wonderful Mary Calmes banter that I grew to love in the A Matter of Time series. And, yes, Brin does remind me of Jory. But since I LOVE Jory, I'm definitely OK with that. I hope this is a series b/c I can see some additional story lines begging to be told. Greg Tremblay puts in an amazing performance, complete with Russian and Serbian accents. Just wonderful!
