Summary

When the cards are stacked against you, the Kings will even the odds.

Eduardo “Lucky” Morales is a fighter, from his childhood days in Cuba to his time as a Special Forces Green Beret. Scarred by the wars of his past, Lucky has learned nothing lasts forever. Guarding his heart is second nature, and getting emotionally involved is not an option. As co-owner of Four Kings Security, Lucky works hard alongside his former brothers-in-arms and fellow Kings, but he also plays hard. Flirting with sexy Texas cowboy and detective Mason Cooper is too much fun to resist, until Mason turns the tables on him.

Mason Cooper may not be a soldier, but he’s fought his share of battles as an openly gay cop and now a detective for Major Crimes. Mason has no idea when things changed between him and Lucky, but the gorgeous, fiery Cuban has turned his world upside down. When a mistake leads to his suspension from the force, Mason turns to the least likely person for help: Ward Kingston.

Determined to keep Mason at arms’ length, Lucky is surprised to find the man at Four Kings Security. The Florida nights might be getting cooler, but the heat between Lucky and Mason burns hotter with every passing moment. Working private security can be dangerous and unpredictable, but so can falling in love.

Absolutely fantastic!

Wow, I just loved this audiobook. Hot, sexy story, with fun mystery, and oh those accents. I could listen to Mr. Boudreaux voice Lucky and Mason all day! I was really exciting to hear more from Lucky and Mason. They are both stubborn and fiery. I loved these characters and their story.

I love the narration. Such great accents!

Damn explosive! So hot and just fantastic!!

I love this series!!!! Lucky is one of my favorite characters and I love his passion and selflessness. Mason and Lucky have been flirting and tip-toeing around get other for a while (as mentioned in the previous book, Be Still My Heart (Red’s Story)). Their story continues here and their chemistry is explosive!!! They bait each other and annoy each other until the tension and lust explodes, and damn its HOT!

This story is full of suspense, sex, and security! While not as thrilling as book one or dramatic as book 2 it is still a tension-filled awesome read. There is a lot of will they or won’t they that finally turns into I will for you!

Both Mason and Lucky are guarded in their own way and damaged by their pasts. It’s a wonderful moment when they realize they are better together and push past their boundaries to be together. The Four Kings family welcomes Mason with open arms and hearts. I love Charlie’s writing and look forward to many more books in this series.

Additional Note: I loved the epilogue that gives us a solid glimpse into the stern, stoic Ward Kingston. I can’t wait for his story in the next book!!!!

Thanks for reading!

The Cuban and The Cowboy

This book is hot hot hot, not really surprising with the fiery Cuban Lucky! Mason has been a bit of a mystery in the series so far and we find out what secret he is hiding, he's complicated but adorable I absolutely loved how vulnerable he is. He's also got a quite a dirty mouth!!
Mason and Lucky have been dancing around each other for long enough and this book tells their story amazingly well. They are hot together but also very sweet, and loving.
That epilogue - wow looking forward to book 4.
Hats off to Greg, his voice for Lucky has me swooning that accent!

Another King Bites the dust!

Oh how the mighty fall. Lucky and Mason's story is amazingly intense and downright sweet.

The epilogue will rightfully entice into the last in this series.

Perfect story, perfect narration.

This is my favourite of the Kings series. Lucky and Mason's frenemines to lovers story has passion, humour, intensity and depth. This is all amplified by the voice actor's performance and by that I mean this is a brilliant narrator. I wish all Charlie's stories were narrated by Greg, he's spoiled me for other narrators. Each character read has a strong believable individuality that enhances them and the story. You'd think there were several different actors performing instead of just one. These is a conviction to each character behind the performance, different breathing techniques showing the emotions and actions. He also doesn't shy away from the hot sex scenes either.
The narrator voice is also unique from the character voices and unlike other voice actors I've listened to this one actually sounds like he knows the story, pays attention to the commas and breathes life into the words instead of just reading it like it's today's lunch menu.
The only downside for me is the quality of the recording, I've downloaded it on andrioid and iSO and it still sounds tinny with a metallic echo sometimes but I'm not going to let that ruin the joy of listening to this performance. And please, Charlie Cochet get this narrator for all your books, actually that goes for all M/M authors get this guy. I have no association to him at all, just want to enjoy listening to your books rather than cringing through some of the other audible books.

Great listen!

I absolutely loved this story. The two characters clashed so much but at the same time they were worked wonderfully together. It was a quick, addictive listen that I couldn’t turn off once I started it. Boudreaux’s narration really brings the characters alive!

Sweet , spicy, and funny

This book had me laughing one minute, so frustrated with these guys the next, and then heart broken for them, too. I could really feel their connection and their hesitation to admit it too each other. I adore how Charlie is able to keep alive all of the personalities of the other characters from past books in her current ones too. While each book is a great new adventure its also like coming home to hand out with old friends.

An excellent way to enjoy this newest addition!

This is Mason and Luck's story and it does not disappoint :) Lucky has teased Mason for a little while, leaving Mason unsure of where he is on Lucky's radar. When Mason has to temporarily work with the Kings, the 2 men really get to know each other better and learn to open up to each other. The story is a combination of sweet, funny and heat.

Greg Boudreaux always gives a great performance - this is no exception. He (Greg) has the most amazing talent of immersing himself in each of the characters and making each one shine, no matter if they have only have one or 100 lines. I loved listening to how Lucky and Mason were voiced - so hot in different ways. This is an excellent way (possibly the best way) to listen to this book (and the entire series).

I was provided a copy of the book. The opinions expressed are my own and provided without any expectations.

Breaking Mason

I enjoyed Lucky and Mason story. Lucky is a sweetheart who thinks he has everyone fooled with his playboy way and he is emotional with a short temper. Mason as walls built around walls and doesn’t let anyone in but for some reason he can’t get Lucky out of his thoughts and it’s messing with him in more ways than one. I loved the storyline it was interesting and the characters are fun and have fantastic chemistry. The narrator did a great bringing the characters to life.

FANTASTIC!!

An absolutely spectacular story that is a great addition to this wonderful series. This story focuses on Lucky and Mason and I absolutely loved watching these two finally give in to their feelings and let their relationship blossom. Their chemistry is sizzling hot and they are perfect together. Their back and forth banter is spectacular and I love how these rough and tough men can be so loving and caring with one another. The narrator did an outstanding job with this one. His character portrayals are spectacular and I love his accents, they were perfect. I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy of this audiobook.

My favourite in this series!

I’ve been hanging out for Lucky and Mason’s story since the end of book 2 when the attraction between the two men was beginning to boil over. The wait was well worth it!!! The chemistry between the two absolutely sizzles as they tease each other while trying to keep their hearts protected. When they do get together it’s explosive but both men are still scared of being hurt because of their pasts. Lucky and Mason are incredible together and I laughed with them and also cried as they admitted their fears and opened up to the other. This book absolutely has all the feels! It’s full of the usual amazing characters, wit, banter, action and suspense. I adored it and can’t wait for book 4!

Greg Boudreaux has done an amazing job of narrating this series, but he has completely excelled with this book. The voices and accents he gives both men are smoking hot!! He also really portrays both the fire and tenderness these two share.

I received an arc of this audiobook and am voluntarily leaving an honest and unbiased review

Finally Lucky in love!

Lucky and Mason have been kidding themselves thinking they weren’t meant to be. This is a story that we have needed. And the epilogue is everything! The best part I have to say! I loved the narration by Greg Boudreaux.

4.5 Stars

Love in Spades is a dual POV romance with lots of action and hot and sexy times, great humor, some suspense, little angst, and a jaw-dropping ending. I love the epilogue, which is actually the teaser for the next book, Diamond in the Rough, which will center around King, and looks like it’s going to be really, really good.

The story is my favorite so far in the series but I loved it even more in audio. Once again Greg Tremblay (under his sexier Boudreaux brand) does a phenomenal job. Great character voices, his timing and pacing is on point, he finesses the humor, emotional, and action elements equally well, and is simply a pleasure to listen to.

This is a fun listen! Hell, the whole series has been nothing but delightful to listen to. Greg Tremblay is at the top of his game and is so smooth in his delivery it makes the time fly by while listening to this.

Take my advice, if you like action with your romance, a lot of heat, with a sprinkling of humor, and a great ending? Grab this series now.

Lucky In Love!

Wow, this series just keeps getting better and better! I thoroughly enjoyed Lucky and Mason's story. Talk about two commitment-averse men finding their way to each other. Lucky and Mason are perfect for each other. Complex men but they fit.

I appreciate how Charlie wrote their story in such way that Mason being Ace's ex boyfriend did not become a big deal or came in between the cousins. Instead, it's part of a lighthearted banter. I also appreciate Charlie shining light on the societal issues of people making assumptions and judgment based on skin color. Lucky handled it quite well, very admirable and made me love him even more.

The usual awesome amount of banter, brotherhood, family and sense of humor are present in this book. And so is the light mystery and action.

Very enjoyable read! I cannot wait for King's story based on the epilogue, it's bound to be awesome.

Greg Boudreaux, your Spanish accent is muy bein and your Texas drawl especially when you say "Darlin'" it's underroo-droopin'!

This Series Just Keeps Getting Better

When police officer Mason gets tagged accidently during a drug test for failing to divulge prescription cough medicine, he ends up suspended from the force and in the Four Kings Security office asking for a job. King ends up pairing him with Lucky, But as the two men work together, and Mason's life ends up threatened as well, can Mason and Lucky keep from falling for each other? Or will their passionate personalities come together to form the perfect partnership!
Mason and Lucky were so much fun to listen to! The narration was a mix between Mason, a true Texas man and Lucky who grew up in Cuba. Greg Boudreaux was able to bring out both accents from Texas and Cuba to add to the story! And with that you have Charlie Cochet's truly wonderful story telling and way of creating a picture with words! These books make me miss Florida (even in August)!
