Publisher's Summary

Jin Rayne is having trouble adjusting to the new life he’s supposed to love. Instead of adapting to being the mate of tribe leader Logan Church, Jin can't get past the fact that his lover was straight before they met. He's discovered the joy in belonging to Logan but fears his new life could disappear at a moment’s notice, despite Logan's insistence that they are forever, end of story.
Jin wants to trust Logan, but that desire will be put to the test both by a rival tribe leader and by a startling revelation about Jin's existence. At stake is Jin's life and his place in the tribe. If he's going to survive to see Logan again, he'll have to release his fear and freely accept the bond, for only then can he truly trust.

Wonderful 2nd book, less than stellar narrator.

I love this genre and story line and was ecstatic to see the second book here. Unfortunately, I didn't pay attention to who the narrator was until after I had purchased the book. I was all set to hear Sean Crisden, and it was such a let down. I see that the first book has a different audio publisher so this explains the new narrator. I wish I had not purchased this book. Jeff Gelder's voice makes it difficult to follow which character is speaking at times, not to mention the monotone and dull recitation with a decided lack of inflection at times. Another problem is the difference in pronunciation of the special titles and words used here, but this just goes back to the different narrators. There are also several spots in this recording where the book just repeats itself. This just shows a lack in production control and very poor sound editing by this studio apparently. I have been an Audible listener almost since the company's beginning and isn't the first time I have noticed the quality change when audio publishers change and narrators change. Listeners like consistency and we all have our favorite authors and narrators. All in all, it is a great book and if you can get around the narrator, it is a great book in the genre.

Great Story, BAD Narration!

I'm a huge fan of Mary Calmes. The Change of Heart series is what made me crazy about her work. I've been waiting for this audiobook for quite some time now and was so disappointed. I've already bought the book on kindle and read it several times so I know the story. I've listened to the first book(Change of Heart) on audiobook several times too. The story is heartwarming, exciting, romantic, funny and interesting. But the narrator Jeff Gelder SUCKS! He obviously didn't read the novel prior to his weak performance. In the first book Mary has a few places where she explains pronunciations and definitions. Jeff Gelder not only mispronounced most of the books unique vocabulary and names. He also was monotone on certain parts. It was almost as if he was bored with reading and everyones voice was the same during regular dialogue. Then during a fight scene he would perk up and everyone would sound a little different. The inconsistency and mispronunciations were so frequent they took away from the book. My advice is to just buy the ebook on kindle or something. Don't waste your money on the audiobook because I know that if my first exposure to the series had been with his voice reading it I wouldn't want to read anything else by Mary Calmes.

I've always had narrators I look to see what book they've read so I can listen to them. But now I'm going to look and make sure Jeff Gelder isn't reading something before I buy it.
