Publisher's Summary

After four years abroad, artist Jonas Davenport has come home to start building his dream of owning his own art studio and gallery. But just as he's ready to put the darkness of his past behind him forever, it comes roaring back with a vengeance.
The only thing keeping ex-cop Mace Calhoun from eating his own gun after an unthinkable loss is his role in an underground syndicate that seeks to get justice for the innocent by taking the lives of the guilty. Ending the life of the young artist who committed unspeakable crimes against the most vulnerable of victims should have been the easiest thing in the world. So why can't he bring himself to pull the trigger?
After years of fighting in an endless, soul-sucking war, Navy SEAL Cole Bridgerton has come home to fight another battle - dealing with the discovery that the younger sister who ran away from home eight years earlier is lost to him forever. He needs answers and the only person who can give them to him is a young man struggling to put his life back together. But he never expected to feel something more for the haunted artist.
Cole and Mace. One lives by the rules, the other makes his own. One seeks justice through the law while the other seeks it with his gun. Two men, one light, one dark, will find themselves and each other when they're forced to stand side by side to protect Jonas from an unseen evil that will stop at nothing to silence the young artist forever.
But each man's scars run deep and even the strength of three may not be enough to save them.
Note: Contains m/m/m scenes and is intended for mature audiences.

Pleasant Surprise!!

I bought this book because it was a whispersync deal and I liked the cover. I never even read the synopsis so I had no idea it was a M/M/M romance. I have read a few M/M but usually dnf and up until this book there was only 1 I had finished and loved. There are just certain things I don't like in m/m romance and I've found that most of them have all of those things but this one did not! I listened to this one straight through! I enjoyed the characters, all 3 of them were so different and I loved that. I think it made their attraction to each other seem so easy and natural (I mean natural like it couldn't be any other way, it just made perfect sense and it was there from the very first time they met). The only downfall for me was the insta-love. I absolutely felt the pull between them, I felt the attraction and I felt like I could see them falling in love one day but.... the first week. I can not wrap my head around being in love when you barely know each other and that was what was happening here. If the story would have been a little longer with a little more time for scenes that helped show the progression of their relationship I think it might have been a 5 star read for me. The story was action packed with lots of baggage and lots of sexy scenes. I can't wait to check out book 2!

The narrator does a great job doing all 3 voices so different that I never once was confused about who was talking and that isn't easy for me normally with single narrated audiobook! I didn't think his voice was perfect for the characters but that's just casting.

The narration is as intense as the story.

What made the experience of listening to Absolution the most enjoyable?

The narrators ability to take on many different characters, and give each one their own distinct personality.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Absolution?

When Jonas finally, fully opens up to Cole and Mace. Emotionally, physically, mentally... he lets down every barrier and truly lets them love him.

What about Joel Leslie’s performance did you like?

Is that a trick question? Everything! I will say that he's an Auto-buy for me i enjoy his talent just that much. For this book particularly he was able to take 2 strong, overbearing, alpha male types and stay true to their character while not overloading the voicing with testosterone. It really worked, which was also my favorite aspect of the storyline.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I just really enjoyed it. So much so that I'll probably listen to it over and over again.

Any additional comments?

This is a new Author to me, I've not read any of her books. As I said, I get everything Joel Leslie narrates because I enjoy his talent so much. It was amazing to listen to how he brought Kennedy's story to life. There are two alpha males in this threesome, but for whatever reason, it works. I love that Kennedy found a way to write these characters, Cole and Mace, and Leslie was able to convey that in the voicing that stayed true to their personality and characterization. Each man wants to be in charge, but for different reasons. Each man brings something different and valuable to the relationship and they when to bend, so it flows well. I'll definitely be looking for more books by this Author, highly recommend this lovely listen.

Joel Leslie is a true star with outstanding understanding of the characters, truly a outstanding Narrared

Great story, great performance

What made the experience of listening to Absolution the most enjoyable?

I'd already read the book but when I saw that this was available on audio I couldn't resist. I'd really enjoyed the book, but as an audio addict I knew I'd enjoy having it narrated to me as I commute to and from work.

Having the characters brought to life by audio doubled my enjoyment of what is already a wonderful story.

What did you like best about this story?

I love the characters - they're all messed up in their own way but together they make sense.

Which character – as performed by Joel Leslie – was your favourite?

Mace. Oh God, that voice sent shivers through me. So perfect.

I've searched out and purchased another audio by him I loved his performance that much. The only other narrator I did that for was Sean Crisden and that opened up a load of doors to author's I'd not read before so I hope this does the same!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wish that I could - no time for that sort of luxury - but I found I couldn't wait for my next trip in the car so I could listen for 45 minutes or so.

Any additional comments?

Buy this book!
