Any additional comments?
The audio for this was sloppy with skips and changes in volume that were jarring. They seriously need to start getting beta listeners for audio books. Those problems aside, the narration itself was okay.
The story was...well, sweet for the most part, I guess. In a modern day kind of missed the point Beauty and the Beast retelling.
It's also totally unrealistic with either relationship or police procedure, but earnest with it nonetheless. It didn't make me rage at any point, though there were a few eye rolls, and it didn't make me want to go out and junk punch someone, so I'm giving it an extra star for that alone (it's been a bad week for audio and me).
I'm a bit weird though...the only authors that get away with insta-love stories are Mary Calmes, Cardeno C, and shifter stories. All others have to work for it to get a pass, and I'm sorry (not sorry), Mr. Grey, but you didn't make me believe the shallow kid would have slept with and fallen for the scarred policeman so quickly.

I am always amazed at how Andrew Grey publishes new novels more frequently than I write in a journal or review books on Audible. Grey never fails to entertain me, and for that I can't thank him enough. This book wasn't his greatest. but it also wasn't his worse. It's a beauty meets beast love story where both individuals have to reconcile who they are on the outside with their inside. I'm a sucker for a kind heart, so I was immediately drawn to Red. His auntie amused me as well. The drug bust scenario felt a bit too forced but clearly necessary to envoke the "Gastone" character aka James. And lets not forget yummy and poignant sex scenes, along with vivid images of Terry in a pink speedo, and we'll call it an authentic Andrew Grey novel. I'm still debating whether or not it was worth an entire credit... personally... I would have preferred a 2 books for 1 credit type of deal, but I have yet to see that type of sale here on Audible for ANY of the m/m books I read. But, a girl can dream..... about a hottie in a pink Speedo. Just sayin! What!? A girl can dream. HA!
