Summary

After a decade of serving in the Army, everyone still expects me to be Dominic "Nicky" Costigan, the skirt-chasing player. They don't know I've been spending my days trying to figure out my post-military life. Including how to pick up guys. When I meet Luke on a hookup app, he makes it clear it's for one night only. That's fine with me, because I'm down to see what this silver fox can do. But after I arrive at his doorstep, it doesn't take long to realize we have serious chemistry, and we end up meeting again. He's got more walls around his heart than a military base, but I think he's as addicted to me as I am to him. He can't resist me for long. I mean, who can? Except Luke's rules exist for a reason, and when I test his limits, things get complicated. Maybe too complicated.

Critic reviews

"I adore both Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell in their separate writing pursuits, but as Megtino they are unstoppable. Fast Connection is another winner in the Cyberlove series, which began with Strong Signal." (Fiction Vixen)

Narrators chosen spoil the story.....

Great story. The narration however completely ruined it...just as happened to Strong Signal. Eric London was OK, Guy Locke...well, let's be generous and say he had yet another off day. No More of this series on audio for me I'm afraid.

Love the Book. But the Narration......

Ok. So this is one of my Favorite Series of All Time. I Love these books and have re-read them numerous times.
And I Absolutely LOVED the Dual Narration in the first book. But this one FAILED for me. Nicky should have a New Yorker type accent, but does not, even though his father *sometimes* does?!? The voice for Luke was alright and there was no issue there for me.
BUT.. OMG Why Oh Why do the narrators Pronounce Luke's sons name MICAH Differently. WTH. How did no one notice that when the narration was being done, before it was sent out into the world. That drove me insane every time I heard it. I will still re-read the book. But probably wont get around to re-listening to this one book very much.

LOVED the story...not the narration.

Any additional comments?

2.5 stars for the narration, but 5 stars for the story.

Let me start with the positive – which is this is a FANTASTIC story!

I devoured this book! It was SO GOOD! So many exclamations!! Seriously, though, Dominic is one of the best character turnarounds from dick to awesome dude that I’ve ever read.

The sex is scorching hot, the characters are awesome, the story is realistic without losing the “romance” story aspect… and I loved it. Absolutely loved it!

But I pretty much hated the narration.

It’s a very hard thing to pull off if there two or more narrators on a story. It’s especially hard when the story is more dialogue driven. I wish in those cases the narrators would each choose a character and keep ONLY to that character voice and POV. The story would be much better served by that approach.

Why? Well, here we have two narrators with wildly different approaches and who each take a POV chapter. So Guy Locke narrates all of Luke’s chapters, and Eric London narrates all of Dominic’s.

So what’s the problem? It means you have 2 HUGELY different character voices FOR THE SAME CHARACTER. A total of four voices for two people. For me, in this case, it was often jarring and a bit off-putting while listening.

Then, again, I had the same issues with Guy Locke’s narration for Strong Signal for Fast Connection. Locke’s narration just does not work for me. His stilted way of speaking, the too slow narration, the over enunciation were just maddening.

There is one positive for Locke, though, as I did like his character voices.

I enjoyed London’s pacing, timing, emotion, and overall performance….but I’ll admit I preferred the character voices from Locke.

I wish I could have melded Locke and London together so I could have the character voices from Locke, but the actual narration from London.

In the end, it wasn’t a horrible listening experience, but it wasn’t a good one for me either. I doubt I’ll listen to the audio again, which is a shame, because the story is terrific and I was hoping to put the series into my re-listen rotation. But I guess I’ll have to be satisfied with just re-reading the book.

I highly recommend the book, but caution for the narration.

Great Story, but some inconsistencies

Big fan of this series, but in this one, the narrators kept pronouncing Micah's name very differently (my-kah versus meeka) and it was crazy-making since he's mentioned often.
Overall, a good listen.

Same voices as last book

What didn’t you like about Guy Locke and Eric London ’s performance?

their performance is agonizing. They use the same voices for Dominic and Luke as they did with Kai and Garrett. It was extremely irritating and took away from the story that I couldn't even finish because of their poor choice of voice use. In the first book Dominic had a heavy accent which while a bit strange was different in this he sounds exactly like Kai. I will not be listening to book 3 of they do not change their voices.

Fantastic sequel, love the dual narrators

We met Dominic in book one. He was the “user” that Garrett hooked up with in the Army who later turned out to be an okay guy. Now he’s out of the Army and at loose ends. He thinks he wants to try being with a guy, but is worried about his family and friends and reputation.

When he meets Luke, who is practically his neighbor, he thinks he’s got it made, but Luke isn’t about to get involved in a relationship, especially with Dominic.
What I loved about this was the humor. Dominic is such a funny and earnest guy. He just lays it all out there. Luke is harder to like and I’ll admit, he didn’t really earn my loyalty til the very end, but he made it!

There’s a lot going on in Dominic’s life and it’s more than just his relationship with Luke. He’s got to figure out what he wants to do now that he’s out of the Army, how to deal with his family, how to deal with his sexuality … He’s got to grow up!

Luke has his own issues, but this isn’t nearly so much about him. (I think it would have been more balanced had we spent more time in his head but…)

The intimate times are HOT – this is where Luke and Dominic connect best.

The secondary characters are great – fully developed and they absolutely add to the richness of this story.

If you enjoyed book one – you’ll love this too. You don’t have to read this in order, but it adds to the flavor.

Highly recommended


Audio

We are given too narrators again – yay! These guys narrated book one, so – again – if you enjoyed book one’s narrations, you’ll likely enjoy this as well. I know I did! I really loved Eric London’s version of both Luke and Dominic – he was definitely my favorite of the two. But Guy Locke does a nice job as well and I enjoyed the alternating style. I think it’d be even better if each narrator could have done all the dialog for each of their characters, but I know that’s a lot harder to do so… In any case, it did help to keep these two guys separated in my mind and I enjoyed both of them very much.

Surprised. I really liked this story

First off I’m straight and a woman. Why did I get this? Well I have the romance package which seemed like a good idea at the time.... then I kinda got burnt out. Didn’t want to hear the same narrators. So I said why not something new.

Well I loved it. Family was crazy but refreshing. Didn’t see the plot coming. Seriously, listened to even the epilogue.

Wow!The book was a little bit heavy.

This book was a little bit heavy and I don’t know men could do all the stuff they did to each other but all in all it was a good story. I just feel bad for the bottom feel like he got shafted. Well it was a good boy on boy romance and anyone should listen looking for a good story. I think it was more real than you know.

Really great dual narration

I liked this story a lot and both narrators are really good! The only drawback is that reading out text messages can come across as choppy, but it didn't lessen the experience too much.
