Hurt/comfort romance with major miscommunication/misunderstanding, angst, some time apart before reuniting, bonding, hot sexy times, and getting their hard won HEA.
The narration is very good and Robert M. Clark does a wonderful job with timing, character voices, emotion, and tone. He infuses the story with warmth, heat, and life.

Ouch! Oh man. This hurt my heart to listen to. There is so much pain in the first third of this story. Most of Cardeno’s stories are like a blanket fresh from the dryer for me. So comforting and nice to wrap up in. But this was very prickly and I had to brace myself for the sad, sad, sad parts.
I really hate it when there is a “Big Misunderstanding” and though that’s not exactly what happened here, it is – in fact – the crux of the problem. Add to it years of separation and I’m just a sobbing mess.
What I appreciated was that once back together these two don’t mess around. They talk it out and get back in the program like all those years didn’t happen. Woot! Thank Goodness!
In the end, as expected, we have a great, super sappy, wonderfully happy, and marvelously Cardeno story well worth the pain at the beginning.
I am on the fence with this narrator. He sort of reminds me of Vizzini from the Princess Bride . He has a bit of a lisp that he mostly covers up but it still slips through and to me – sadly- was a distraction. I think he mostly understands and handles the emotions well. Sometimes he fell a bit flat for me – especially on the non-dialog portions – but there are times when he really shines in his grasp of the “scene” and the pacing.
So… while the story is a 4.5 of 5 stars and parts of the narration are as well, there are parts that are more like 3 of 5. I’m gonna round down the audio and give the overall audiobook experience a 4 of 5 stars. It was good, but I think in other hands it could have been great.

Oh. Sweet. Lord. Cardeno C and paranormal romance is my match made in heaven. I absolutely loved this story and although it's a relatively short one it had the feel, complexity and death of a much longer tale and being told in Abl's point of view made it feel very personal.
So, another brilliant shifter romance that left me smiling and utterly charmed.
