Summary

A Marine with honor.

After surviving a horrific chemical attack that turned him into a metahuman, Captain Jamie Callahan got a second lease on life. For three years he’s been working for the Metahuman Defense Force and leading Alpha Team - all against the wishes of his family. The job requires his full dedication, so it’s no surprise Jamie doesn’t have time for a relationship. An enticing one-night stand with a gorgeous stranger is all it takes to show Jamie exactly what he’s been missing. When a mission to take down a terrorist cell brings that same stranger back into his world, Jamie’s life gets complicated.

A soldier with secrets.

Staff Sergeant Kyle Brannigan was only looking to relieve some stress after a long mission. He didn’t know the hot guy he picked up at a bar was the leader of the MDF’s top field team. When Kyle and his partner get seconded to Alpha Team to help fight a terrorist threat, he has to balance his desire for Jamie against his duty to keep his secrets safe. That gets harder and harder to do amidst regulations both are tempted to break.

Two men trying to survive.

Giving into passion could cost both their careers. Abiding by the rules will only result in heartache. An attack on MDF headquarters brings with it a choice Jamie and Kyle can’t escape - duty, or love?

Awesome start to a addictive series

I highly recommend this if you like Marvel Agents of SHEILD and lots of hot MM erotica.
I often find it difficult to identify with a lot of SciFi but the clear world building and excellent characters made this a great book I became lost in right from the start. The whole concept of a bio weapon that kills almost all it comes in contact with, with the exception of those whose DNA interacts with Splice and transforms them into Metahumans giving each survivor a unique ‘superpowers’ is not that far fetched.
Fantastic action packed scenes with great choreography between all the characters.
The relationship between the two MC’s is Incredibly hot and the sex scenes are very descriptive and intense. Some of the hottest sex scenes I have heard.
This may be the hottest audiobook I have heard but with the story to back it up and who better to narrate it than Greg Boudreaux, he makes the numerous characters identifiable and his inflection and timing is perfect.
I can’t wait for the rest of the series to arrive on audiobook

intricate series

These are all great I feel like I need to re listen each time I get a new book because they're so intertwined but that isn't exactly a hardship. Greg is such a phenomenal narrator and he brings so much poetry to Hailey's writing. The plots and the connections between every character not just the mains are soo good

Amazing story

I really enjoy Greg Boudreaux and love Hailey Turner's books and the combination of the two is absolutely amazing.

I haven't read this book before, but I thoroughly enjoyed this story.

I loved Kyle and Jamie. This was an epic love story full of action, hot moments and some very tender moments.

I can't wait to read/listen to the rest of their story

Came for Greg Boudreaux

I am a fan of the narrator, and that's the main reason I picked up this title. I actually liked the non-romance plot of the story, and the narrator is brilliant as always. But I just got tired of all the sex scenes.

Me listening, looking at the play time in the app: Really? Another one? So they're just going to be having vigorous meta-human style sex for the next half hour?

I would listen to more of the series because the team was cool. I want stories about Katie and the others, so the author does well establishing the world. When an author introduces a team like this, I want to know about the entire team, not just the gay or straight ones. This author seems to be about the MM and not much else as she focuses on the romances of a pair of adopted brothers on the team.

If you like Greg, you know how awesome he is. If you need more than just Greg's awesome voice and want awesome content to go with it... rate your expectations accordingly to whether or not you can stand long, drawn out sex scenes that involve a lot of delayed orgasms. Wasn't my thing, but it could be yours.

Hardcore Porn, sprinkled with a little sci-fi.

The "Sci-fi, Meta-human" this novel is billed as, is merely fluff page filler between the extra graphic hardcore porn segments. I love a good gritty fetish porn as much as the next guy but... I never knew until now that it was possible to EXCESSIVELY overuse the word Cock. The Author used the word so much that I found myself skipping ahead so I wouldn't have to hear it beat into my ears over and over and over again.

Fantastic audio!

This series is one of my favorites, and I was so excited to hear Greg was going to record the audio as he is one of my favorite narrators. And man, he knocked it out of the park! This book is an excellent start to the Metahuman Files series, and Greg brought Alpha Team to life like only he could. Each character has a distinct voice and the accents are on point (Greg's Alexei.. yes please!). I found myself unable to stop listening, even though I have read the book several times before.. and I am sure I will be listening over and over too. I hope we get to experience the rest of the series in audio in the future.

Metahuman Files #1

Great story with interesting world building and a terrific narration, this dual POV sci-fi romance hit all the bright spots for me from the characters, to the plot, to the final moments - it was all really, really good. There was also plenty of action, both out of and in between the sheets.

Then add it being a fun listen on top of everything else and you can color me happy. Greg Tremblay, under his Greg Boudreaux pseudonym (for sexier titles), keeps a wide array of characters easy to follow along with while making all the good parts even better.

I especially loved that the story doesn't have a cliffhanger ending, even though it definitely opens up a series.

I'm really looking forward to the next book in the series, In the Ruins.

Awesome start to a new series

I loved this book. The team kind of reminds me of the Thirds in how they work together. They have all been through hell and are working to bring down all the bad guys. Loved that the team is backing them up as they grow and work on living together and finding love. Jamie and Kyle make a perfect couple. I can't wait for the next book in this series to come out in audio.

I love the entire series

They are some pretty explicit scenes if that's a problem for you. Hailey has created an intriguing world but I haven't quite figured out how they take so many showers if water is so dear.

I want to finish but I can't

The book started out really good but it soon began to go down hill. All there is, is sex then a battle then sex, then another battle and more sex. I need a story to go along with sex and that is just too much sex.

Plot filled and hot

I like a story that is more than romance and this one does a great job of crossing genres with military science fiction and m/m romance. The main couple are both complex characters in their own rights and they have real believable chemistry. the sex is a bit on the kinky side, but the link is not the focus of the story- though it does serve to deepen the characterizations. love the reader as well! I will definitely be looking for more by him.

Love Found Within The Wreckage

In the Wreckage is the first book in the Metahuman Files series and introduces the readers to Alpha Team and a barely recognizable future where climate change has completely reshaped the way humans interact and live within their environment. Within this new future is a chemical weapon, Spice, that is so horrific almost everyone who’s exposed to it dies a gruesome death. But for those who survive the exposure, they find themselves changed to the core of their DNA. These changed humans are known as Metahumans and possess powers that would not be out of place in a X-Man comic or a superhero movie.

Captain Jamie Callahan is the leader for Alpha Team, the elite military unit comprised of Metahumans. Jamie’s life revolves around his dedication to duty—much to the disappointment of his politically focused father and worried mother. Staff Sergeant Kyle Brannigan is an elite sniper who gets transferred onto Alpha Team against his wishes. But Kyle soon finds a second family with Alpha Team and the attraction between him and Jamie is the type of love that can move worlds.

I adore this book (and the entire series) and I can’t believe it took me so long to read it. As someone who has served in the military and in law enforcement, I really appreciate the intricate and fascinating details Hailey Turner put into her sci-fi military unit. In this strange alternate universe of future, the military structure, chain of command, and team dynamics all felt real and plausible. I am a huge fan of Hailey Turner’s world building and loved every moment of this story. Plus, the romance between Jamie and Kyle is hot and kinky while also tender and sweet. The sex scenes were delicious and the connection these men had with each other made my heart melt.

The audiobook was narrated by Greg Boudreaux who did an incredible job with the narration. This is a book that demands an energetic performance, and Greg met that challenge and exceeded it. He voiced all the characters with wonderful distinction and made it really easy to follow along in the story. The audiobook was well produced. I highly recommend it.
