Publisher's Summary

Psychic Emory Jackson and former black ops specialist, Jonathon Silver, are men from two completely different worlds with one thing in common: heartbreak.

Emory still mourns the loss of his husband five years prior, and Jon is reeling with grief from the recent death of his twin brother. Sparks fly when mutual friends introduce them, but it's so much more than basic attraction. There's an undeniable awareness and a sense of belonging that neither man can deny. Despite Emory's premonition of a future with Jon, he has vowed never to love again.

Jon is convinced that his tainted soul is the reason he will never have someone to call his own. What if they're both wrong? Maybe these broken men with their jagged edges could somehow align perfectly to form something whole and beautiful. But will that realization come too late for them?

Contains mature themes.

Horrible narration

I have read this story 3 times but I had to completely force myself to finish listening to this. I can't find strong enough words to express how painful it is to listen to a favorite story being destroyed by this narration. I read a review by someone dissatisfied with the narration but decided to ignore the advice since i am such a fan of this author. Please do not make the same mistake. Do not let this horrible narration ruin this... read the book instead.

Great book but...

I am a huge fan of Joel Leslie but I was not a fan of his portrayal of Jonathan Silver. I the ‘Curl Up and Die’ series it mentions Jonathan only showed up in Louisiana 2 years ago. His accent seems too thick to not have lived in Louisiana for very long. I lived in New Orleans for more than 10 years and know people who’ve lived there longer and we don’t have accents that thick. He sounds like a Cajun black man friends m deep in the swamp but that’s not who the cover portrays. Other than that I did enjoy the book. It was nice to finally hear their story.

Here's my problem: the narrator!!

So many good stories I want to listen to and I skip them because of this narrator. no offence but I just could'nt manage a chapter and I stopped. How can I even rate it if I can't listen to it...too bad, the storyline seemed interesting.

Psychic Love

Finally we have Emory and Jon’s story. Since the first time we met these guys in the Curl Up and Dye series, we finally get to see them both get their happy ever after. Emory is a psychic with a raw and bleeding heart. He lost his husband in a tragic car accident and hasn’t been able to move on. Jon is a dangerous man with a sordid past. He spent years in the military getting blood on his hands. When he finally retires and goes home, it’s only for him to discover he has a long lost twin brother. When his twin is murdered, Jon is left to pick up the pieces and manage the nightclub his twin left to him. Both men are hurting and lost and don’t feel ready for love. Fate has another plan.

So I liked the book, but I didn’t love it. There was way too much retelling of events that happened in the Curl Up and Dye series, and I felt like I was getting a long recap of a soap opera episode rather than reading a new book. I liked getting to know what Emory and Jon were feeling behind the scenes of the Curl Up and Dye series, but not at the expense of any real plot. The plot in this book was pretty loose and didn’t feel like it had it’s own identity. The last part of the book was the best part, and did a lot to redeem the book for me.

I love the characters, so I’m committed to finishing the Curl Up and Dye series and the Road to Blissville series. Aimee Nicole Walker has created some amazing characters that I have fallen in love with. Characterization is definitely her strong suite and makes up for a weak plot. Plus, the sex scenes are super hot and really enjoyable.

Tender, Moving Story That is also Sizzling summer

I cried as I listened to this story. It was quirky, tender, emotional and beautiful. Well written and effectively narrated. Sizzling hot also. It was nice to stay in touch with the other characters. READ THIS SERIES IN ORDER to get the most reader enjoyment.

Laughs, love and sexiness

This series is amazing and this book in particular had me feeling everything there is to feel. I loved Emory and Jonathan, I cried for their pain and I celebrated their victories. Joel Leslie delivers this story with the finesse of an artist! It almost like he is one of the characters relaying the story. Amazing, as always!

love it

Love this story. I've now listened to it three times. I will always look for any book that Joel Leslie narrates. He is the best. Add into that Aimee
Nichole 's writing and it is again perfect.

Touching

I was surprised. The narrator was slow speaking and after a couple of minutes I was ready to delete the book, but I was playing a game and listening and didn't feel like setting up a new book so I decided to continue on. I'm glad I stuck with it, because the narrator had what I considered a cajun accent that touched my heart. Then I got into it. Maybe I was in the mood to cry because this book made me cry several times. Love is love...pass it on.
