Summary

Angel DeLucca is one of the most sought after gay bachelors in Virginia Beach. He's smart, successful, lethal, and more than anything he's drop dead gorgeous. When a one night hook-up goes terribly wrong, Angel comes into contact with the breathtaking Maximus "Max" Strong. 

Max is a firefighter for the Virginia Beach Fire Department. Max is beautiful, charming, and also very straight. One meeting with the mysteriously sexy Angel DeLucca and a whiff of that silky, jet black hair, Max finds himself questioning everything he's known to be true about himself. Max tries desperately to understand the new feelings he has for another man and turns to his gay, older brother...Ryker.  

Ryker has always been Max's protector and his guide their entire lives, which has left him feeling uncared for and alone to handle his own life's problems. Ryker craves to be taken care of, he craves the attention and praise of a Master. No one knows the dark desires within him until Angel's Chief of Security, Sebastian "Bass" Bagatelli, shatters that secret with their first intense encounter.  

Contains mature themes.

Made me smile

I kinda fell in love a little with each of the 2 couples, and am so looking forward to more of Backhand and Hawk, cos I need their story to! for these guys though I would have liked for there to have been a moment where the brothers shared their story with their partners. at the same time, I kinda love that it wasn't really a big part of the story. it was sweet, fluffy, with some action too. all I love in one! and it worked!

LOVE AE Via, but.....

I am a HUGE fan of AE Via, but I really struggled to finish this audiobook. Tim is a good narrator, but I was easily distracted. I don't think Aiden Snow could've kept my attention with this one and that's saying something because he's pure perfection at narrating Via's Nothing Special and Bounty Hunter's series. It's easy to tell this is one of Via's first books. She has really matured in her writing since this one. I'm "impatiently" waiting on her new audiobook, Wood, to debut next month.

Tim Paige brings an excellent story to life!

I already loved this book to begin with. After listening to the audio version I love it even more! Tim Paige has excellent diction, pacing and pronunciation. He handled the numerous voices admirably, given how many there were. He brought intensity to the passionate scenes and had me holding my breath through the culmination of the story. Bravo !
A.E.Via is on my autobuy list. What I like most about her stories is the way each character feels real and authentic. I love the variety of characters, life stories and emotions.
I love this series!
In this book, main characters Max and Angel imerse you in their love drawing you in to rejoice in their passion of finding The One.
This is a reread pleasure, over and over. Highly recommended!!!

fantastic

absolutely fantastic. the punches kept rolling, some twists I didn't see coming at all, the sexiness didn't stop, and there's a variety of character and dynamics. it's all around engaging and entertaining. The narration was great and I absolutely cannot wait until the next book comes out on audio. 100% love this author and this audiobook, would recommended.

In this case, it really is too good to be true...

I can get behind instalove stories if they are done well—usually involving some other plot (like true mates) that makes it more accepting of a possibility. In contemporary fiction, it’s a little harder to buy, but can be done. In this book, I had a hard time buying it at all. It was too soon, too rosey, and too unrealistic. I have to wonder if this is one of AE Via’s earlier works, because it didn’t seem as well put-together as some of her other series. I’ve tried listening twice now, from the beginning, and I didn’t make it far into Ryker and Bas’s story both times. It almost seemed like Angel and Max’s personalities shifted partway through the story and it was hard to nail down just who they were supposed to be. Tim Paige was okay as a narrator. Sometimes it was hard to differentiate who was speaking, but that could be because I’m used to Via’s works being narrated by Aiden Snow, who is outstanding at what he does. It’s not a terrible listen, just not what I was expecting from the author.

Hot and yummy, need more stat!

Narrator Tim Paige’s felicitous delivery was as much sensual as action-packed. His perfect execution or accomplishment lies in the ease of weaving together several plotlines filled to the brim with stunning hot men. He managed to hold my attention and weaken my knees with his beautiful voice. Listeners will be hooked from the start as the sexy cadence of his voice fit the genre and various characters, making it easy to differentiate between them. I volunteer to grab and cuff Tim to the M/M Fiction side.

The author pulled off one of the most difficult storylines, without confusing the shit out of me. Listeners will be amazed by the number of men and couples in this one audiobook. Still, nothing felt rushed or half done. Best of all is I can remember every one of them, which almost never happens. The mental picture I painted for myself was ignited by the full and well-rounded character and world-building. Still, this was erotica with a plot. I loved the insta-love. It gave the audiobook almost an ethereal feel.

I absolutely recommend this audiobook, I can’t wait to hear book 2.

Happy Listening
