Publisher's Summary

Florist. Psychic. Addict.
Laurence Riley coasts by on good looks and natural charm, but underneath lies a dark chasm that neither heroin nor lovers can fill. Sobriety is a pipe dream which his stalker ex-boyfriend is pushing him away from. Luckily, Laurence has powers most can only dream of. If only he could control them.
Aristocrat. Psychic. Survivor.
Quentin d'Arcy is the product of centuries of wealth, privilege, and breeding, and is on the run from all three. A chance encounter with an arresting young florist with a winning smile could make him stop. Laurence is kind, warm, and oddly intriguing, but Quentin's wild telekinesis and his fear of sex make dating a dangerous game.
When opposites attract, they collide.
Desperate to fix his rotting life, Laurence prays for aid and accidentally summons a fertility god who prefers to be called Jack. Jack is willing to help out for a price, and it's one Laurence just can't pay: he must keep Jack fed with regular offerings of sex, and the florist has fallen for the one man in San Diego who doesn't want any.
If they're to survive Jack's wrath, Laurence and Quentin must master their blossoming feelings and gifts, but even then, the cost of Laurence's mistake could well overwhelm them both. How exactly are mere mortals supposed to defeat a god?
Jack of Thorns is the first book in the Inheritance series and contains mature themes and events which may be distressing to some listeners. It has a low heat rating and an HFN ending.

I absolutely loved this book when I first read it. Amelia Faulkner doesn't shy away from dealing with hard topics such as addiction and alcoholism and it really adds a lot of death and realism to the characters and story.

Adding Joel Leslie's narrating talent to the mix is just a recipe for success. He adds so much life to an already great book and I am already dieing to get my hands on the next book!

If you don't have this in your library you are soooooo missing out.
Buy it. Buy it now! 😁

I've read the book several times, so I was predisposed to liking this, but I can't get over how UTTERLY PERFECT Joel Leslie's narration is.

This is, I can already tell, going to be one of my very favorite audiobooks that I will listen to again and again. I really hope the rest of the series gets recorded as well.
