Summary

Chicago homicide detective Tyler Jamison has accepted the fact that he was born defective. Women just don't do it for him, and he can't contemplate any other option. So, loneliness it is.

Ian Alexander has met the man of his dreams, but the guy's in complete denial of his sexuality. Ian's not giving up on Tyler, though. Tyler's a domineering, controlling force of nature...just what Ian has always craved in his bed.

When a serial killer sets his sights on Ian, Tyler will do anything to protect the much younger man. For the first time in his life, Tyler has experienced desire, and it's for another man. How much will it take for him to become the man he was meant to be?

Great Story & Narration🎧 Captivating & Heartfelt!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it grabbed my attention right from the start and captivated it straight to the end. April Wilson is a gifted author, she created a story and characters that are realistic and easy to connect with. I adored the two lead characters, Tyler Jamison and Ian Alexander. Tyler Jamison is a homicide detective for Chicago P.D., he is unhappy with his love life, he has not found a woman who does it for him so he gives up on them and finding love. On his one night out he gets a glimpse of someone who raises his interest, that someone is a he and not a she. That same night he gets woken up to report to crime scene, another homicide with the same M.O. Ian Alexander saw his friends lights on in his boat so he went to visit, turns out he stumbles upon a crime scene and possibly in the path of a serial killer. Detective Tyler Jamison is the lead detective on the case and he becomes super protective of him. The first half of the book focuses on the solving the crime and finding the killer and Tyler looking out for Ian. The second half is after the crime is solved and focuses on the two getting to know each other and their growing relationship, the stories flow naturally and everything is plotted out nicely. I loved how everything plays out, there is plenty of drama, a touch of angst, some mystery, twists & turns, thrilling & suspenseful moments, a boat load of heartfelt and emotional moments and a wonderful romance. April Wilson, thank you for the great story and emotional rollercoaster ride. 🎧📚🎧 I listened to the Audible edition, J.F. Harding and Jack DuPont are fabulous narrators and voice artists. They bring the characters to life, giving each their own voice and personality. They did an awesome job portraying the characters, making each role their own. You could hear how much heart they put into their work as they capture the characters emotions and project them into their performance. They are talented and entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for this great listen.🎧

One cliche after another

Honesty, I didn't know whether to laugh or cringe at J.F Harding's narration. He's a 'Cawp', a deep voice, hard-drinking closeted 'Cawp'. The characterization is just one cliche after another. The performance is too angsty and overblown for my liking and Tyler's self-disgust is overdone too. I just wanted to shake him. Jack DuPont is easier on the ear and his smooth narration works in counterpoint to the harsh, over angsty J.F Harding. It's a shame because Harding's other accents are good. The story is padded with irrelevant backstory, and the murder mystery case is all done and dusted half-way through the story. If you like a lot of hand wringing, whinging, shame, and a character who hates himself. Go for it.

Great

Great story by April Wilson. Tyler and Ian had an amazing journey and was so happy for them in the end. JF Harding & Jack DuPont where a power combo and made this story extremely enjoyable. Will be keeping an eye out for more books in the series. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

enjoyable; great narration

New author for me. Wanted to like it more than I did. Love romance suspense so was looking forward to a MM version but the suspense part had some issues. The beginning was also a bit repetitive that would have bothered me more if I was reading vs listening. The complete 180 personality change of Ian halfway through the book was also a bit weird and I think I would have enjoyed the second half better had that not taken place. The narration was fabulous -it's probably what is bringing up the ratings from 3.5-4. Glad I listened and will try another from this author

HOT! 🔥 🔥 🔥

Love love LOVE! Tyler and Ian are a great couple! Well written, both characters were unique and lovable, and narrators were HOT! This was my first book by April Wilson, but I'm ready to start looking at her back list. JF Harding is my favorite narrator, but when you put Jack Dupont in the booth with him (figuratively).... Well, my earbuds were on fire! I received a free review copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review. I have not communicated with the author or her representatives except to receive the code.

Good story and great narration!!

Really enjoyed this book. I would say this book is more about the MCs than a Murder mystery. Which was fine by me, I enjoyed seeing the two MCs work their way through the relationship. The narrators were amazing. They brought such life to both MCs! I loved it! Excited for the next book!

Love these narrators, really lked the story

Superb listen. I already knew I could happily listen to J.F. Harding read even the tax code. He's the reason I gave this book a listen. I was pleasantly pleased with Jack Dupont's narration. This is my first book by this author and I found it enjoyable. Lots of characters got quick introductions which opens the door to lots of opportunity for this series. I imagine they will find themselves in the sort of trouble that the detective lead will help them through while his relationship with Ian develops and matures. I look forward to the next book in this series and agree with another reviewer, please bring this narrating duo back.

OUTSTANDING NARRATOR PERFORMANCES

This was a beautiful and emotional story performed by the best of the best of narrators. JF Harding and Jack DuPont completely brought this story alive for me. I am ready for book 2 of the series, and I truly hope the author intends to use these master performers.

Great story, great characters, great narrators

Rarely do you get a book on audible that has amazing writing, great characters and two narrators that bring the story to life. Somebody to love does all those things and more. Hearing a book like this gives hope I can find other audible books that check all my boxes!

Loved it!

To me there is nothing better than a gruff alpha who is really a softy. Then add in a murder mystery, add in a closeted/out for you hurt/comfort, add in losing MM V-card and I'm sold. Oh wait there's more? JF Harding and Jack DuPont narrating this book. I was completely sold. I loved everything about this book and I'll be patiently (not) wait for the next book.

Beautiful narration. 💫💫💫

This one is passionate, tugs at your heart and is wonderfully written. J.F. Harding is always a favorite of mine, but both narrators were very good. I really enjoyed this story. You have 2 flawed and very different characters that find one another unexpectedly and how they handle and get thru some of the most real and difficult circumstances was put into powerful words. I had to finish this one in one day.

Perfect Narration

Book was great. Saying this, the only reason I bought this book was because of JF Harding. I will listen to anything that man narrates. He could read the phone book and keep me totally captivated. Jack Dupont was new to me but I will now keep a lookout for his work as well. That being said I really enjoyed this read and look forward to more from April Wilson.

Fast Moving

I usually don’t like when authors rush the plot line, but in this instance, I think it was PERFECT! She cut most of the cheesy over-told storylines out and made her points clear, sexy and fun! I love detective books, and I love when they are gay! I wish more authors knew that gay men can do “masculine” jobs!

Tyler & Ian

This is a great start to a new series by April Wilson. If you are familiar with her McIntyer series you've met Tyler Jamison as Beths brother. If you are not familiar - don't worry - this is a new series and works completely as a stand alone from that one. Tyler is a standoffish detective who struggles with relationships. Ian is a fun loving out and proud man with some issues of his own. When they are thrust together for a case sparks fly and Tyler struggles. This story as some suspense and action, but I loved that the case is resolved just past the half way point of the story and then we get some time on the relationship development. Great series start and can't wait for more of these guys.
