Publisher's Summary

Sequel to Bulletproof
Jory Harcourt is finally living the dream. Being married to US Marshal Sam Kage has changed him-it's settled the tumult of their past and changed Jory from a guy who bails at the first sign of trouble to a man who stays and weathers the storm. He and Sam have two kids, a house in the burbs, and a badass minivan. Jory's days of being an epicenter for disaster are over. Domestic life is good.
Which means it's exactly the right time for a shakeup on the home front. Sam's ex turns up in an unexpected place. A hit man climbs up their balcony at a family reunion. And maybe both of those things have something to do with a witness who disappeared a year ago. Marital bliss just got a kick in the pants, but Jory won't let anyone take his family away from him. Before he knew what it felt like to have a home, he would have run. Not anymore. He knows he and Sam need to handle things together, because that's the only way they're going to make it.

The last Sam & Jory story

Would you listen to But for You again? Why?

Over and over. It's a favorite series.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jory, of course. Sam calls him a trouble-magnet and that he is. Gets into so much trouble, but at the same time is a well of unexpected courage and resourcefulness. I wish I had a RL friend like Jory...I'd never be bored and I know he'd be there for me no matter the predicament. Love love love him. (Sam, too!)

What about Finn Sterling’s performance did you like?

The prior book in the series, Bulletproof, was read by perhaps the worst narrator in the genre, so Finn Sterling was a breath of fresh air. He did both Sam's and Jory's voices perfectly. Also great for the kids and other adult characters. His female voices need a little work. :)

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

I almost did!

Any additional comments?

The last Sam & Jory story. I just want to slip away and cry in some dark corner for awhile. Finn Sterling's narration was stellar for the most part. The female voices could use some work, but the men and kids were excellent. Thanks, Mary Calmes, for allowing me to be a part of Sam and Jory these past four books. Here's to one hell of a thrilling, romantic ride! While the entire series is highly recommended, listeners will most likely be disappointed in the narration of the third audiobook, Bulletproof, as the narrator is quite simply...awful. As I listened to the series, I ended up skipping #3 and re-read the book instead.

Ahhh . . . domestic bliss for Sam and Jory

Finally, the long awaited final installment to the Matter of Time series; not counting Parting Shot b/c that is really Aaron's book and can be read as a stand alone. This is the story of a very domestic Sam and Jory, with a splash of Jory's trouble magnet tendencies thrown in of course. The new narrator does a great job, especially with Sam's deep voice. Jory comes off a little more "camp" than the other books, but overall very good narration. I've read this story multiple times, so it was really nice to hear it come to life. This is not something anyone will enjoy as a stand alone book, but if you are a fan of the series, it is a must have.

Please can we have More!!

Would you listen to But for You again? Why?

yes, because the narrator brought the story to life really enjoyed it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of But for You?

Dane, I would really like a story about his life.

What does Finn Sterling bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He makes the characters flesh out, gives the story depth.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Danger Magnet. Ones mans life and love struggles.

Any additional comments?

It would be really good if one narrator told the story in all the sequels, so that you become familiar with the full story told by one person.
