Summary

How can one man be so incredibly frustrating but so sexy at the same time?

Ryder knows two things. Tragedy can strike at any moment so you have to hold tightly to the gifts life gives you. And Shay is one of those gifts. To Ryder their 15-year age difference is nothing, Shay is the man he wants. Now he just needs an opportunity to plead his case with the sexy lawyer.

He gets his chance when Shay asks him to assist on a case involving a missing person, but the investigation quickly turns perilous. A stomach-churning roller-coaster ride of what the hell is going on, puts both men in danger - but from whom?

Will the two get their chance at love, or will a brutal criminal tear the future from their grasp?

Real Danger, second in the West Coast Forensics series, is a dual POV, age-gap, m/m romantic suspense following Shay and Ryder as they fight for their HEA.

Excellent audiobook

Perfect mix of mystery and romance - and I loved them both!

The main characters are engaging and I enjoyed sharing their journey as they spent time together following the clues.

The narrator was excellent. He really inhabited the characters and ‘lived’ the story. I wish all narrators were this smooth and confident.

Super addition

A fantastic second instalment by Elle Keaton. Perfect balance between mystery and romance. Shay and Rider was great characters to follow. Michael Dean did a great job keeping me hooked.

Exciting and intriguing mystery and romance

I really enjoyed this audiobook! Shay and Ryder seem so different on the surface, but they are really a perfect match. The mystery was also compelling and suspenseful with a couple red herrings and plenty of twists and surprises. There is plenty of humor, too. Clarabelle remains one of my favorite characters. I loved Ryder's tweet questioning (originally an effort to get to know more about Shay) that added a lot of funny moments and comments, and I loved the way Ryder went after what he wanted, even in the face of resistance. Great story.

The narration is fantastic, with distinct voices for the characters and great delivery, especially of the humorous/snarky parts.

I received a free copy of the audiobook at my request and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.

Great blend of mystery and romance

Came for the mystery but stayed for the wonderful characters and blend of mystery and romance. I've been reading some true crime/PI books lately and the blurb for this one sounded like a nice fictional addition to the list. It was wonderful! The mystery kept me guessing and on edge and Shay and Ryder were a delightful couple. This is a great take on the grumpy/sunshine and age gap tropes and watching Ryder slowly but surely chip away at Shay's resistance was funny, sweet and hot. Michael Dean caught the humor, heat and suspense of the story perfectly.

When Ryder gets his way

I enjoyed watching Ryder and Shay dance around each other in the first West Coast Forensics book. Of course I knew these two would wind up together. And rightly so. There’s the fifteen-year age gap. Ryder thinks nothing of this, but Shay’s obsessed with it. Shay has also been a defense attorney for the past however many years until retuning to the island to watch out for his great great aunt (who is a hoot), and to reassess his life choices. He’s too young to retire, but he’s also tired of defending those who are guilty.

When he and Shay are approached by someone to help find out what happened to a missing young woman, they just sort of go along with it. Ryder has more investigative skills, but Shay knows how to read people and how to ask the right questions. Things heat up and it becomes clear someone doesn’t want them solving the mystery of the disappearance.

I liked how the author wove in the Highway of Tears up here in Canada. Native women (and other women) have gone missing along this highway for years without any explanation. In both the States and Canada, disappearances and murders of Indigenous woman are far less likely to be investigated and solved. This is a gaping wound that needs to be addressed. This book helps in that forward momentum, bringing the issue to the fore.

Shay and Ryder are in more danger than they think and their lives are on the line. I don’t want to give away too much, but I enjoyed the suspense in this book. Ms. Keaton always does a good job with that. I got my happy ending and I’m thrilled there’s another book to come.

I’ll say Michael Dean gave another stellar performance and I highly recommend both the book and the series.

The attorney and the computer genius…

Ryder has been crushing on Shay for a while. Shay thinks Ryder is too young for him. A missing girl case brings them together. They close proximity breaks down Shays walls and he gives in. The investigation turns dangerous and one of them could be lost to the bad guys. Great romance, slow burn, suspense and action complete this awesome listen… and the narrator too did a great job with that beautiful voice.

So good!

I am a huge fan of both Elle Keaton and Michael Dean. This series is one of my favorites and the story of Ryder and Shay got me since the beginning.The plot is captivating and the author kept me at the edge of my seat the whole time Ryder and Shay worked together in the mystery and found each other in the process. Mr Dean showed us his great talent in this narration, ensuring that every single character was brought alive. It was a treat hearing his amazing performance, smooth voice and wonderful voice acting, A great narration of an outstanding story. Loved it! So good!

Fun age gap

I feel this is really a fun age gap story. The back and forth between them and their texting made me laugh. The questioning of favorites was entertaining. There is a part that is mostly to do with the disappearance of a girl believed to be kidnapped. That also has a twist that changes the stereotype guy savior. I really like the characters. Ryder is very special and determined. Shay running from any relationship with Ryder is cute. The resolution to all the issues held my attention till the end. Michael Dean’s narration made these characters come to life. He fit so well with these characters.

Real Danger

A good listen. Michael Dean does a great job with the narration. This series is, I believe, connected to another series; while I didn't feel like I was missing something in the first book, I did some with this one. That said, I was still able to enjoy the story and the couple's journey.
