Publisher's Summary

Three years ago, Jory Harcourt changed his name and shut the door on a past full of pain, only to emerge stronger on the other side. He has a new career, a great working partner, and a satisfying life - except for the hole in his chest left behind when police Detective Sam Kage walked out with his heart.
Now Sam's back and he knows what he wants... and what he wants is Jory. Jory, who doesn't know if he can survive another breakup or losing Sam to his dangerous job, resists returning to the arms of the only man he has ever truly loved. But when a serial killer with a score to settle targets Jory, he will have to decide if love is worth the danger as he tries to solve the case and keep Sam safe.

It's not you...

There was just something about this series that I just did not like and I could not put my finger on it. I read and reviewed Volume 1 (Books #1-2) giving it a three rating for the story. I just completed Volume 2 (Books #3-4) and somewhere towards the end of book 3 I figured out what it was that I was having a problem with...I do not identify with the dominate/submissive relationship between Sam and Jory. Attempting to identify with the characters allows the reader to fully enjoy the tale that is being told and I just could not. I kept saying, if I was Jory...geez the expletives that spewed forth from my mouth! Now I will say that I did enjoy book four the most. Jory's escapades and his attempt at mystery solving was rather enjoyable (if not a bit far fetched) and the conversations between Dane and Jory were rather comical. I was a bit confused that Mary Calmes did not expound on Jory and Sam's union but rather chose to end the tale with anothers wedding and petty jealousy. I have book 5 left, but I will wait a while before I read it. I need a break from Jory and Sam. I would recommend, if for no other reason than I like Mary Calmes story telling.

Five stars to Paul Morey!

I'd read the four books back when it was published by Club Lighthouse Publishing then bought the edited Dreamspinner version. 5 stars all the way but it was Paul Morey's narration that truly brought this series to life for me.

His interpretation of Det. Sam Kage is brilliant and the rest of the story is narrated with expression and just the right pacing but audiobook fans will know what I mean.

More of the same!

Volume 2 is as good as the first volume with the same whit and pathos - the characters are developing nicely and you feel like spending time with old friends. Paul Morey continues to breathe life into the characterisations.

A good second installment

This was a good follow up to volume 1. Paul Morey again delivers with Jory and Sam... actually I think Sam was even better in this book. Growly and gravelly, but also full of passion for Jory.

Yet another overwraught destructive relationship

Would you try another book written by Mary Calmes or narrated by Paul Morey?

Not by this author. The story continues from volume 1 and well into the story it had repeated itself again and again and again The character of Sam showing up everytime Jory is out. It's called stalking. Jory pulls away, Sam grabs his arm, Jory takes a step back Sam closes the distance etc etc etc Both volumes could be one book and the story not loose anything

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Generally OK but a little slow.

Any additional comments?

I'm a little over these destructive relationships in M/M novels written by a female. Why do they assign M/F to M/M relationships? Why can't they be equals? Another character actually comments that their relationship is the same as a strong male, weak female relationship. Jory started as pretty strong at the beginning of Volume 1. But the longer he was in the relationship the weaker he became. The Sam character is a manipulative bastard verging on the sadistic. After 3 hours Sam had Jory in bed yet again and it was almost a rape. I had hoped the story would allow Jory to move onto another lover but alas no. That's when I turned it off never to return.
