DNF from middle of book 1

This box set is my first experience with this author but will likely be my last. I couldn't even make it through the first book. I'm returning it.

The series is presented as Action/Adventure and Romance. I don't think either is accurate; this is more like insta-love erotica. Declan and Sam have been emailing daily for a year in preparation for their siblings' wedding. They have this massive connection, so we are told, but we never actually experience it. Their first meeting in person is disastrous and aside from the copious amount of sex (and the scenes were uninteresting), I don't feel how in five days they are both madly in love with the other. It just didn't click for me.

The POV changes with alarming frequency, often in the middle of a paragraph. I got whiplash trying to keep up with who's thoughts were expressed. The characters and situations were completely over the top and shallow: bad people are horrible, situations are ridiculous. There is no nuance at all, which would be funny in a comedy but falls flat here. I honestly don't care AT ALL what happens to these people, which is a shame since great characters can often drag me through a mediocre story.

Gary Furlong was amazing. His accents were plentiful and I had no problem differentiating which person was speaking. His Declan voice was sexy! Unfortunately, he could not save this for me.

Maybe if you want something that isn't too deep with a ton of sex, this will be for you. I was hoping for more emphasis on plot than I got, at least as far as I listened. Gary makes it enjoyable. I still think two stars is generous.

Great characters drive a good story

First of all Gary Furlong is a master narrator which was evident in this series. Good story, great characters with sound chemistry. Parts of the story lagged but I still enjoyed it. Onto book 4

amazing 3 books to a series

I'm not sure why I waited so long to listen to these. They are fantastic. They have just the right amount of Intrigue, character building, and all the feels to keep it going.
Once again, Gary does an excellent job with all the voices so you feel like you are right there with them

Disappointing

Heavy on sex and short on story. Lots of description and observation but a slow read. The only excitement comes in the last 30-minutes. The actions and feelings are not consistently or even accurately masculine which shows the author is not male. Way too much self -reflection and mental meanderings in the midst of life and death combat.

Mehh…

Did not finish, Unfortunately, the story and plot are lacking, there is loads of sex but without any base it falls short. Disappointed because I like the narrator so would have loved to listen to a good story including romance. :(

Top Notch audio!

OMG! Sam and Declan are adorable.
Declan's awakening to his orientation was beautifully written.
Gary Furlong does such a great job with this series. I love his range of accents and how he can switch so seamlessly.
There is no issue with identifying which character is speaking when Gary narrates.
I absolutely hate Sir James Aiken and I hope the author has a nasty end planned for him.
