This series is freaking awesome. Absolutely engrossing. Just wow. There are no words.
I admit I did get frustrated with the main characters quite a few times for angst that is everywhere in these books. I tell you your heart will be shredded. But somehow just when I think, "There is no way they are going to do this because of a misunderstanding..." Bam something happens I totally did not see coming and I'm lost in this wonderful, horrible, lovely, gritty, cuddly, sad world. Jeez my heart is going to be stitched together with duck tape and floss. That is just how amazing this story is.
Not to mention the narrator. Ya, I could listen to his voice all day long just because it's that awesome. His voices for Cage and Jamie where so perfect it hurt. And when he brought the heat to a love scene it was panty melting.
****All that said I totally recommend this series. Hands down so worth every penny. HOWEVER you must have ALL three books before you start reading/ listening, because the cliff hangers at the end are absolute murder. Seriously. MURDER. You will die if you do not heed my warning! I know cliffies are hated by many but this series is worth it. You won't be disappointed if your a MxM romance fan.****

This is really very much like the mm version of fifty shades, but i think i liked this version better. First, the author writes a lot better (which is not an impossible task at all). Second, it might just be the mm storyline but the characters seems more real. It is of cause a fairytale of a young naive (not-gay) man falling for the rich, troubled and lonely MMA fighter, who needs him to function. It is a comming out story for the college student and sort of a dom-sub story (without the whips) due to the personality of the MMA fighter, mostly. I liked that it is infact the MMA fighter who does not have a problem with being gay (he has too many other issues to deal with). It kind of creates an extra layer to an otherwise straigthforward story and makes it stand out a little. It is however not meant to stand alone so unless you commit to listening to all three of the books it wont make much sence. I liked the narration.

It's about time somebody wrote a male adult fiction which has a credible storyline with depth of characters who really have you liking, disliking, and feeling for throughout the whole book. Don't start listening to this book if you don't have a clear schedule otherwise you'll find yourself cancelling appointments just to finish the book! 100% admiration and respect for the author absolutely superb writing thank you!

Well, I can honestly say that I'm not usually a great fan of JF Harding's narrations, but he absolutely nailed this one. His carefree, innocent voice for Jamie and the more menacing, deeper one for Kage worked really well, and his female voices have improved a helluva lot in the period since he narrated The Long Way Home by Z A Maxfield.
The story, as I've said below, was OK [3.5 stars] and I'm definitely not into MMA/boxing of any kind; it's pretty dangerous IMHO resulting in frequent serious head injuries despite the care taken, and that certainly doesn't win the fighter any points from me or make them look any hotter [although I know there are people out there that like the caveman look and attitude], BUT it is surprisingly still considered a sport....
***Book Review 2015*** 3.5 rounded up to 4 stars. The writing was OK, and the MC's Jamie and Kage were polar opposites really, but that usually makes for an interesting story. Kage ends up practically stalking Jamie as a tiger does it's prey, and well, I'm not giving the storyline away, but suffice to say that there is a huge row at the end of the story and a cliffie...not my favourite way to end a story, but it keeps the interest going into the next book of the trilogy. I need to find out what Kage's deal is...why he's so angry, why he spaces out sometimes AND if they're both going to apologise to each other for what happened at the end of book 1...
