Publisher's Summary

Gabriel Wyatt is a big city Detective living in a small Ohio town. He expects a peaceful existence once he moves from Miami, Florida, but that’s the last thing he finds. Instead, Gabe discovers murder, mayhem, and one smart-mouthed stylist he can’t get out of his head. Josh “Jazz” Roman is a small-town business owner with big dreams and an attitude to match. He finds himself in the middle of a case that brings the dreamy detective to the front door of his Curl Up and Dye salon. Josh learns that the biggest threat to him isn’t a killer; it’s a man who wants something from him that he vowed to never give again - his heart. Both men deny that there’s something between them, even though they’re drawn together like magnets. Can Gabe convince Josh to let down his guard or will Josh let past hurts destroy his chance at a happy future?

Savage-ly Pleasing

Joel Leslie excels at performing smart, sassy and unique characters, and his take on Josh is a masterpiece.

Dyeing to Be Loved is the first book in a series, with an emphasis on developed, nuanced characters and expectations-defying plotting, and Joel Leslie handles this complex book with exceptional skill and emotion. He becomes the characters.

Personal favorites are Josh, and the parrot, Savage. His take on Gabe is as solid as the character, and the explosive chemistry between the two MCs come across loud and clear in the performance.

The book is a must-read for realistic but unique characters, engaging plots, and a dynamic relationship that is anything but predictable. The book is enjoyable, with a subtle thread of tension and malice that thrills when people starting dying, and well, dyeing.

*Having the prequel short story added to this edition was deeply appreciated.

Outstanding Audio Performance and Knockout Story!

5 Stars across the board! Not only was this an amazing story with amazing characters, but the audio performance was out of this world. WHY did nobody tell me about this book sooner?

I can't believe it took me so long to get started on this series. I've had this book on my radar for some time now, but I kept putting it off because my reading list is so long. I finally had the chance to get my hands on the audiobook and I couldn't pass it up.

At first, I really didn't like Gabe. He was a judgemental smartass and I thought I was going to have a serious problem trying to connect with him thoughout this book. He says some things to/about Josh that start them off on the wrong foot and they took off dancing with four left feet. No matter how much Gabe tried to apologize and set things right, Josh just wasn't having it.

Josh was my favorite of the two MC's, and my favorite Aimee Nicole Walker character overall as well. He was sweet and sassy, not afraid to tell it like he sees it, and faaarrr too fabulous to put up with Gabe's judgemental ass. Everytime a Josh chapter started I knew I was in for a good laugh. His character was hilarious, fierce, sweet, and strong all at the same time.

Despite taking their sweet old time getting together, the romance between Josh and Gabe was worth every excruciating second of waiting. They were a perfect fit together emotionally and physically, and oh boy did they burn it up in the bedroom. I was not expecting this level of sizzle from Walker, but this book was haawwwtt.

And lets give a round of applause for Joel Leslie!! When I decided to read this book, I had no idea that Joel Leslie was the narrator. I've listened to one of his previous audio narrations (Devotion by Grace R. Duncan) and I was a little on-the-fence about the narration. I felt like Leslie exaggerated the characters a lot more than was necessary, but this book was absolutely perfect. From little old ladies with a southern accent to sassy and feminine Josh Roman and the dark and sexy Gabe Wyatt, Leslie killed it! This book is probably the best audio performance I've had the privelege of listening to yet.

This was hands-down an amazing audiobook! The story was great, the characters were amazing, I loved the romance and the heat, it was a perfect narration. Couldn't ask for more. Can't wait to read the rest of this series!!

Did not disappoint

Any additional comments?

I had previously enjoyed reading this series and was a bit worried the audio version would not do it justice. I was wrong Joel brought the characters to life perfectly, I will listen to this again and again. Can't wait for the audio version of book 2 in the series.

Great listening

Loved it. Joel was exceptional. Aimee Nicole Walker is a new author to me but won't be for long. Can't wait to continue this series. Josh and Gabe work as a couple and I loved the struggles that happened along the way.
