Publisher's Summary

Black Friday, book 1:   
In his junior year at college, the only things on Sean's mind are doing his homework and getting out of college to get a real job. A gamer and a bit of a nerd, Sean's philosophy in life has been to keep his head down and get his work done: He doesn't have the time or money for anything more after his father died in an industrial accident when Sean was eight.   
But when a failed kidnapping attempt leaves him with a gaping hole in his memory, his oldest friend dead, and his mother missing, Sean suddenly finds his whole world turned upside down as he's thrust into the hidden world of magic and the supernatural. Apparently he's now wanted, dead or alive, by all of the magical societies, though he has no idea why. About the only thing going for him is what his friend did for him just before he died and the cute track star who lives in the room next to his, who has suddenly taken a very personal interest in his problems.   
Perfect Strangers, book 2:   
During his junior year in college, Sean finds himself suddenly dropped into the middle of a world that he didn't even know existed. A secret world of magic and magic users, lycanthropes, goblins, and all the other things that go bump in the night. To make matters even more difficult, the very same magic users who had Sean's father killed now believe that Sean will somehow inherit his father's work when he turns 21, which is just a few days away. 
Needless to say most of the magic users' councils seem to be in two camps: The first camp wants him dead. The second camp wants him captured and will probably kill him after they've learned his secrets. The only solution Sean sees to any of this is to finish his father's work, the very thing that got his father killed. But in order to do that, Sean must first find out just what his father was working on! He's also going to need to learn magic himself, find a safe place to stay, raise some money, and gain a lot of allies.   
Fortunately for Sean he's got two good women at his side: Roxy, a cheetah lycanthrope with a lot of experience in fighting; and Jolene, a tantric witch with more than a few connections in the supernatural black market.

Wow, I want the next one.

This is a cheap, cliche, fast-food driven work of erotic fiction. I mean this in the absolute BEST way possible.

The characters are a little 2D and the writer knows it. But I still end up caring about what happens to them. This is partly due to the excellent narration.

I honestly wish each individual book was longer and more fleshed out with action/ erotic scenes. And other species interactions could be played up a bit. That said I'm happy with it and I will buy the next one.

So good i started it over 3 hours after i finished

Where does The Valens Legacy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

For pure entertainment value, this book is up there with the best :D
There are some flaws in the world building of it, but this isn't a book you read for the epic universe building you get with some other 50 hour + audiobooks that go into detail. It is for the pure entertainment and joy of going from awesome to something even better with every minute that goes by.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Valens Legacy?

For me, it has to be the amazing moment where a bunch of "terrorists" starts shooting at the Hero in a mall, in an open carry state.
This went as well for the "terrorists" as could be expected haha!.
This moment had me laughing hard and it is the first time I have ever read or listened to something so great being added to a book.

What about Leland King’s performance did you like?

I feel like I have heard this guy before, have I heard this guy before?
If Leland King isn't MacLeod Andrews then someone's parents have some explaining to do!
The performance was superb though!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Bring tissues and not your girlfriend.
I for one don't ever want to see a book being made into a movie or a tv series, especially with the garbage that is being passed off as watchable today.
