Summary

Controlled Asher didn't expect to fall for free-spirited Daniel, but they'll find what they desperately need in one another.

Police captain Asher Penaz's staunch professionalism bleeds into his home life, down to his neatly pressed attire and Spartan apartment. He enjoys being in charge and in control, so his sudden and powerful attraction to the lighthearted, free-spirited Daniel Tover throws him for a loop. In his entire life, Daniel has never gotten what he needs, so he moves to the next place, the next job, the next attempt to find something worth staying for, always landing at the top of his game, but never feeling like he belongs.

The chemistry between Asher and Daniel sizzles, but with all that fire comes the risk of getting burned. As both men struggle to learn themselves while getting to know each other, the lines of desire and control blur. If Daniel and Asher can walk through the flames together, they might find what they desperately need.

Twists and turns

Perfect match, sweet hot, turns to grumpy jealousy back to sweet and hot into meltdown to HEA.
I give it a four star cause it is good but for me the twists and turns takes too many ways to get a full five.

as good as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

Outstanding perfect match with twists and turns

What made the experience of listening to Something in the Way He Needs the most enjoyable?

Ezekiel Robinson's narration brings the story to life in a way that didn't detract from my enjoyment of the original book, rather he enhanced it. His voices perfectly matched the character development and I was quickly enveloped in the world of Asher and Daniel.

What other book might you compare Something in the Way He Needs to, and why?

Like all Cardeno C stories, there is an instant attraction and a love that develops which is very satisfying. The story is character driven and we see good development. Asher isn't a relationship guy and Daniel has never had a real home, but they find exactly what they need in the other man. There are twists in this tale though and a period of heartbreak, but a fully agreeable HEA makes this a feel-good listen.

What does Ezekiel Robison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Ezekiel's narration is gentle and thorough. He lightly dramatises the story and I found myself drawn in from the outset.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Asher lets Daniel down badly, and Daniel runs away, I actually cried for their losses. Restitution comes though!

Any additional comments?

A wonderful story of love and finding a place. Highly recommended.
