Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book.
Ethan was on call the night Rino came in, with his mother and dead step father. Rino's abuse needed documenting and Rino would only consent to it, if Ethan stayed and held his hand the whole time. 17 years later, Ethan and Rino cross paths, and Rino knows that Ethan is the guardian angel he prayed to for so long. Ethan is under no such illusions, especially when Rino turns up at his club.
Generally, I talk about the book first then the narration after. I'm flipping that here. A narrator can only work work with what is presented to him, granted he puts his own voices to the characters but the words he reads are not his own. I cannot fault the narration.
John Solo narrates. It is the first of his work I have listened to and it will not be the last. Solo's voices for the characters are clear and easily identifiable, and his reading voice deep and even. He portrays the emotions of all the characters well, and they come across in all the right ways in all the right places.
What I have a problem with, is the story itself. Overall, its good. I just don't like how fast it moved! Rino was raped, repeatedly as a child and then again as a date rape as an adult. Yet on his second encounter with Ethan (after they met at the club) they are able to fully consummate their relationship. (Trying to word it so Amazon will take the same worded review, but you get what I mean) There is hardly any reservations or reactions from either Rino or Ethan, and I would have expected more.
I read, A LOT. And as such have picked up a whole range of lay knowledge for a whole range of things. I would have expected more hesitation from Rino, maybe Ethan too. Maybe I read too much, huh?? It just bothered me, and I've learnt to listen to those bothers and write about them in my review.
This is book 4 in the series, I have not read any others. BUT I am left curious enough about Robin and Scott (Impacted, book 1) to add their book to my to-read pile.
3 stars for the book
5 stars for the narration
**same worded review will appear on Goodreads, Audible.com, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.com and Kobo*
