Publisher's Summary

"It's hard enough with two people. Throwing a third into the mix is...I don't know, doesn't it seem like we're asking for trouble?" It hasn't been easy, but horse trainer Dan Wheeler is beginning to build a new life for himself, finding his place in California with his lovers Evan Kaminski and Jeff Stevens. When things are going well, it's spectacular: there's affection, humor, and passion. But things don't seem to go well all that often. Dan continues to struggle with the loss of his previous lover and sometimes doubts that he even deserves to be happy; Evan is jealous of every rival for Dan's attention - including Jeff; and Jeff worries that he's too old for the younger men and wonders if he should bow out completely. Despite his resolutions, Dan has grown attached to the other two men, but he's not sure that's enough. He knows that it hurts to be together - he needs to decide whether it would hurt even more to be apart.

Great 2nd book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, if they read the 1st book. This book picks right up where the 1st one ends. Also, the narrator is excellent.

What other book might you compare Out of the Darkness to and why?

I don't read many m/m/m books, so don't have any to compare. But this is basically a book about relationships in all their complicated glory. There is a lot of fighting between Dan and Evan in this book and a lot of miscommunications. There were many times during the listening of this book when I just wanted them to break up and be done with it. But the author does a good job at not making anyone the "bad guy" They are all to blame to some extent for the conflict. It's just like life.

What does Peter B. Brooke bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narrator does a fantastic job of giving a realistic voice to each character and projecting their personalities. They are all flawed in some way, but all very lovable at the same time. Although I really didn't like his female voices; way to high and whiny at times. There are many witty and funny moments in this series (usually involving Evan) and the narrator does a great job with those.

If you could take any character from Out of the Darkness out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I would take Dan so I could slap him up against his head and say "stop it"!! He continues to overthink everything and feel he is not good enough. I think that is why I love this series. I am really engaged in the various characters and their lives and really want it to work out for them.

Any additional comments?

I write this review having read the 3rd book and I can say the 3rd is my favorite. This book is necessary to really appreciate the commitment these men have to each other. It is frustrating sometimes, but worth it in the end. Even though I have read the 3rd book, I'd still buy it on Audible if it had the same narrator. This one is definitely worth a credit.

Great follow up

What made the experience of listening to Out of the Darkness the most enjoyable?

The narrator is superb for this one. His hits the various characters emotions with just the right tone. This book is my favorite of this series as the three try to build their relationship together despite the various problems that each of them have.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Out of the Darkness?

I love the first sex scene where Dan takes charge and Jeff ends up in the middle. Lots of dirty talk and hot action. Also the fight between Evan and Dan when Tyler first enters the picture. Dan really exposes himself there and Jeff cuddling him afterwards in heartwarming.

What about Peter B. Brooke’s performance did you like?

He really captures the emotions of the characters. Each character has a distinctive voice and each one fits the characters perfectly.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The end with Dan and the orange where he really wants the the relationship and admits it.

Any additional comments?

I'm predisposed to like this book since it is my favorite out of the series. The narrator does a great job on it.
