Since the death of his submissive lover two years ago, Leo hasn't been living--merely existing. He focuses on making Collars & Cuffs, a BDSM club in Manchester's gay village, successful. That changes the night he and his business partner have their weekly meeting at Severinos. Leo can't keep his eyes off the new server. The shy man seems determined to avoid Leo's gaze, but that's like a red rag to a bull. Leo loves a challenge.
Alex Daniels works at Severinos to scrape together the money to move out on his own. He struggles with coming out, but he's drawn to Leo, the gorgeous guy with the icy-blue eyes who's been eating in his area nearly every night.
Leo won't let Alex's hesitance get in the way. He even keeps him away from the club so as not to scare him. And as for telling Alex that Leo is a dom? Not a good idea. One date becomes two, but date two leads to Leo's bedroom...and Alex discovers things about himself he never realized and never wanted anyone to see.

Good story, not the right narration!
The first 2 books of this series were my favourite to read and I was happy to find them on audible. However, having the story take place in Manchester, Russo was not a good choice, yes he probably gives continuity to the series but this is not what characters from the UK sound like in my head. Yes I have Trusting Thomas, but I won't be getting the rest.

Beautiful story but .... an American narrator?!
What did you like most about An Unlocked Heart?
This is a beautiful story, I love the development of Alex and Leo's relationship, the way BDSM is portrayed in this book is fantastic, it shows the basic principal of Safe, Sane and Consensual. It also shows some of the common pitfalls such as people who don't understand. This is just one of those stories that gives me all of the warm and fuzzies.
What was one of the most memorable moments of An Unlocked Heart?
Oh so many! I love when all the doms show up to move Alex but Alex and Leo in the group room .... OMG So sexy!
Did Nick J. Russo do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?
He did but I was not that fond of the way he portrayed the doms, especially Leo. These guys have very commanding voices, Leo sounded more insipid than Alex, Thomas was also not good and Miles sounded like a twink! Also Leo seemed to turn into some kind of parody voice that at some points that was frankly creepy!
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This story makes me laugh, cry, need alone time with my kindle, sigh like a love lorn heroine .... all of the feels!
Any additional comments?
This book is written by a UK author and is set in Manchester. Whilst it is not overly British there are British phrases and mannerisms which I why I was very surprised to find the narrator was American! As a narrator I liked him, but not for this book. I am terribly disappointed that someone English could not be found, and I'm not saying I wanted Mancunian accents throughout but some of it just sounded weird coming out of an American's mouth

Raunchy easy listen
Good story that's easy to listen to - can stop and start and you don't lose the story. Just wish that books set in England were narrated by some one with a UK accent. That I have to say is the one down side to this book.
